Don't you ever talk shit about Coldplay. It'll be your last day on earth. Huge Arctic Monkeys fan here. Crazy Inception fan. Don't you ever say that cartoons and anime are only for kids. I read a lot, I game a lot, I play a lot, I'm a movie buff, I listen to music 24/7. So WHAT? I have messy hair, what's it to you?

Writing stories.

I wrote my first story when I was 6 or 7. Previously, I was writing these kiddish stories about Scooby Doo, Looney Tunes, Tweety, Tom and Jerry, Dexter's Lab and some Pokemon stories. They were absolutely rubbish, heck, I even wrote a big poem when I was in my 5th grade about "A pup named Brownie" >_> Well...I thought they were all cool at that time haha

I never wrote after that, I mainly wrote blogs in Gamespot, and wrote reviews about games and anime. But the only review which was "mature" was Shadow of the Colossus. Check out my review in Gamespot if you like, or here's the link. :P

After an year, I came across many stories written by my friends. And I had to admit, I was really "influenced" by them :P Then one day, it just happened. I had a really cool idea in my head, and I started writing :D And this time, it was not kiddish.

I wrote about a guy who is being chased by a mysterious "figure" at night time. A thriller short story. There are some references of 2001: A Space Odyssey in it and the writing style of Matthew Reiley (in the last part) I wrote it in 2 hours, and after writing it, I felt a "feeling of achievement" :P
Everybody liked my story, family n friends, even my tuition teachers (uh...they are not those old typical teachers). People said, they were just sucked into it!! Whoa!

After some weeks, I started thinking about writing a new story. But I didnt get any ideas. Nothing popped in my head, dhimag ki bhatti nahi jalli. Was thinking about some action adventure story. Even got some ideas, but I didnt know how to make a story of it. Then one night, before reaching home I just happened to see the sky. EUREKA. Got an idea. And even formed half the story in my head :D

This time I was serious. I wanted it to be way better than the first one. So I spent almost an entire week writing and typing my story. (I first write my story in a tiny notebook, and then type it) It was even the first time I included dialogues. I wrote it and wrote it, and when I completed it, it was 11 pages in MS Word :O

I have to say, I really enjoyed writing my second story.
I've got a Feeling.
It's a short romance\slice of life story about how a boy tells a girl how he feels about her. But why write a romance story for God's sake? Just because "I luv love stories" :P . I love rom/com anime, much more than rom/com movies.
And yes.... You will find some references of a Hindi movie in the last part (I wont say the name though, find it out yourself :P Though I was not thinking about the movie when I wrote the end), and Toradora (anime) or hey, references from you life too, maybe? If you know much about me, then you may find many references from my life as well.
When I posted it in FB, everybody loved it :D :D

So now, I am thinkig about a new story. Havent got any idea what to write. A sci-fi story? Psychological, action/adventure? Or a slice of life? I'm just waiting for a EUREKA moment again!!

That's all!

Presentation and my first Interview.


So my sister came from Mumbai, and we too sat together yesterday noon and she told me what all questions the interviewers will ask. I prepared my answers very well, and I gave my presentations 21 times :O


Reached MSU BBA at 8:00. I met one friend there. Relief. I was not alone!! We were grouped in batches, and my friend and me got separated -_- But I made another friend after a few minutes haha. We had to wait for 2 hours for our turn to come. I filled up the forms, gave my certificates, got my "Registration number" I felt like I was going for an audition for American Idol >_> Anyway, what did I do for 2 hours? Just had some "time-pass" with my new friend. Haha I even showed her my artworks and my short story :P I couldn't resist!

Then, we got separated. She went in one class, I in another. Damn!! Anyway, my turn came at about 10:05. I went in.
"May I come in?"
"Yes, you may."
"Good Morning"
"Good Morning to you too."

I gave my file, but Sir told me to stand near the podium and tell my speech. He told me to give a speech on Advertisements: Problems or Opportunities for business. (I just KNEW IT) I gave my presentation quite well :O Even one judge was smiling all through the presentation. I guess he liked me.
Then they asked me to sit down. And asked my some questions regarding the Pen and the Sword, Brand Wars, and Price and Demand. Gave all my answers correctly, well...sharp answers.

"Thank You Viveck, you can go now."
"Thank You Sir, Thank You Mam." :)

Then, I waited for my interview for 45 minutes again >_> But to my relief again, I found my first friend. We just had "time pass again" Again, I showed her my short story and artworks :P I couldnt resist!! Well, she asked what I am interested in anyway!

She had her interview first, then MY TURN.

Throughout my interview I had a smile like this :)
And throughout the interview the 3 interviewers also had a smile like this :) (Well, to my relief again, I was the 4th person they interview that day! So they were not impatient)

"May I come in?"
"Yes, yes, Please come in and have a seat."
"Yes Sir, thank you sir"

They told me to introduce myself, and they asked me all that I was expecting. Why do you want to do BBA? What after that? What do you know about BBA? What do you know about MSU BBA? I gave them sharp answers confidentially with a smile, and they asked me questions with a smile LOL
One Mam, also asked me to give a review on a certain book I read. (Cause I mentioned I write reviews and read books) I gave a mini0review of Shutter Island and gave a character description of Teddy and Chuck.

They asked me some questions again, some twisty questions . I answered all the questions twisty turvy haha!!

"Ok, Viveck, I hope we would be of great help to you in the future."
"Thank You Sir, Thank You Mam"

Then I went outside, and the first thing I did was:

YES!!!!!! *raising my fist in happiness*


" I want to talk to you, I want to spend the whole day with you. But I dont know what to talk about. And you have nothing to share with me. "

I became viveckvivu in 2005 when I first joined Gamespot. And after that, I have established myself as viveckvivu everywhere. Twitter, MAL, IGN, GiantBomb, EVERYWHERE!!

It's 5 years, and some people may think that "viveckvivu" is a kiddish username. But I dont care. I like it :D

Social Networking Websites

Eh....just thought about writing something about social networking website.

To be honest, people are not what they seem. I mean, people act differently in the virtual world and act differently in reality. I have not met people like these before. That is why, I just don't add "random" people in websites.

And many people do find it weird, when one talks about online friends. What's the problem in that? I have a few good online friends, to be honest, I considered them as really good friends. We talk a lot, share our life stories and all :P (YOU GUYS ROCK!! :D) I even think about visiting some of them one day. I might just visit 2 of my friends after June :D Can't wait to talk to them!!

And we follow each other everywhere. I met my friends in Gamespot, then we met in Orkut, then Facebook, and then Twitter :P We are everywhere :P


Anyway, whenever I see articles of social newtowrking websites in newspapers, most of then are "rants" They say how these websites harm the young generation. Eg. the kidnappings, the murders. But it's their fault. Those people are just choosing "random"/"wrong" friends! Choose your friends properly!!

And these websites are surely addictive. I visit Twitter and FB, uh...I dont know how many times a day!! :P I even hear that there are rehabilitation centers for those who are suffering from FB addiction! I dont know if it's true or not, but I'm not like then, I assure you.

Just wanted to share my opinion. There were 45 presentation topics for BBA, and in it was "the influence of social networking websites". :P So I just wrote about it here, in a nutshell. hehe.

Rain!! :D

What a wonderful way to start a day. Well...when I woke up, there was no current. But the weather was cool, so I went outside to see Rain!!! Yes. Finally. Monsoon is here, and about time too!!! The temperature was 45.C-47.C here, I was in a microwave for days :X

There was no current, so I took some videos of the rain from my balcony. But then, I went outside in the rain and started clicking some more pics :D I love to walk in the rain :D And also, in the morning!!

And in some pics, the society in which I live, looked like a resort!!! My society completely changes during rainy season. There are trees all over the place, but water-logging problem -__-

Went back home. And then, started listening to some Coldplay songs. Perfect time to hear them. Sparks, A Message, Swallowed in the Sea, The Scientist. (BTW Coldplay is the best band EVER!!)

Rainy season sure reminds me of many things.

1. Max Payne 1 and 2. Completed both of these games in the rainy season, and that too, during the year in which Vadodara was half flooded! And the game even had a rainy feel to it (there was a snow storm in the game haha)

2. Honey and Clover. One of my favorite anime. Saw it for the first time during the month of June 2 years back! Whenever I listen to Waltz, I remember the rainy days when I used to listen to this song again and again (and I still do)

3. Toradora. Another one of my favorites! The episode in which it rained heavily, episode 5 I think, the episode in which Ami is introduced.

4. PoP:The Two Thrones. Last year, during "monsoon" vacation, I completed the game in one go!! Played continuously for 6 hours!!

5. Shadow of the Colossus. The EPIC EPIC EPIC final fight with the 16th colossus!!! Perfect scene for a boss fight. Dark, cloudy, and stormy weather it was in the game when I killed the final colossus! (in the game)

And some more things, which I dont remember now -__-

Anyway, the rain stopped. But it was still cloudy (it STILL is, and I love it!!) When I was walking in the rain, I got some new ideas for my new story (ahem...it's a light/romantic story, but I dont think it will turn out to be good -_-)

Then the lights came back. Bummer. Normal day begins again!! Bummer!!

In the evening too, me and my friend, after giving the BCA exam, went out to eat in the cloudy weather :D Then again went out for guitar classes in the cool weather!! I thought of going for a walk again during night time, but didnt!!

That's all for now. It sure feels weird here. I have written about 385 blogs in Gamespot. Sure feels different. Maye I should copy, paste this blog in GS? I feel like betraying Gamespot! O_O

P.S. I like listening to these "sound of rain" songs or sounds, or whatever they call it!!

P.S.2. Should I really stop blogging in Gamespot? :O

P.S.3. I hate changes. Really do!! :X

P.S.4. Not "seasonal" changes!
