As you may have noticed, the name of my blog has changed to ‘Loquacious Living’ from its previous name, ‘Design And Conquer’. I think the current name has a nice ring to it. Hopefully I’ll keep thinking this and stick with the name for the future 🙂
Anyway, even though the following post is no longer applicable to the blog, it’s still very relevant to my life and I’d like to leave it on here. Therefore please do indulge me 🙂
I thought I should explain what the name ‘Design & Conquer’ means. Well, as an engineering student, I hear this word ‘design’ thrown around a lot. ‘Design’ you own control system (Electrical/Controls engineering); ‘Design’ a Heat Exchanger (Chemical Engineering), ‘Design’ and Experimental Methods (Civil Engineering) etc. It’s become an integral part of my life that word; ‘design’.
I sometimes ask myself, I can design everything and anything, but can I really ‘design’ my life. Obviously this question may have many answers. Some may say no. That we can’t control what happens in life, that there is a higher power/karma/destiny, call it whatever you want to call it, pulling the strings. While other may say yes. That we are in indeed in control of our lives, our thoughts, our actions, therefore shaping it into something we can be proud of. My answer? I don’t know. I really don’t. I think a bit of both is right. I believe there is a higher power in control however, I am ultimately in control of my immediate life; my decisions, my actions, my reactions etc.
Therefore, that’s what this blog is all about. It’s me trying to do the very thing the Engineering Faculty hasn’t yet asked of me; to design my life. I know I probably won’t get it right, (I have made a few mistakes already). But, here’s to me attempting to get it right and conquering every obstacle while I’m at it.
Till next time,
