Chance and Choice

This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back. You take the blue pill - the story ends, you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe. You take the red pill - you stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the rabbit-hole goes.

The world is a tragedy to those who feel, but a comedy to those who think.

"There is always a first time for anything and everything"

and for the first time, i seriously felt

"its easy to preach others on what to do and what not to do, but when it comes to "you doing it", its always difficult"

That means next time i'm giving fundae to others, i will be more soft and be able to relate to them more.

Glimpses from my diary...

"... so that's it!! Don't bother too much about the short term failures or under achievements.. all that matters is what you do in long term!!! So come on... don't bother yourself!!! There are things that happen in your life and you never understand why they happen, whats their significance??? But always remember that everything has a purpose, without purpose nothing exists.. Everything that happens makes a difference in your life, someway may be a little bit only, but still it does!!! As Richard Bach says "Nothing by Chance" everything you get is what you deserved, everything you lose is possibly not for your cup. That doesn't mean you should stop trying to get what you desire, but first deserve and then desire. And keep trying for what you dream about or think about. If you succeed, you will be happy; if you fail, you will learn. Keep your hunger alive and keep your efforts of luck!"

5 Tips for Error Handling in Java

  1. Avoid throwing an exception whenever possible. In stead return special values e.g. null.

  2. Throw early, catch later

  3. Either throw an exception or log them but never do both

  4. Always throw a checked exception, unless it’s a severe error that cannot be handled by the caller of the api.

  5. Maintain layer wise clear abstraction on errors and exceptions so that even if there is a change in the lower layer, consuming layers should not be affected. A particular exception from one layer should never be carried onto the next layer.

I feel like it's a dream and i don't want to wake up. But i must wake up before i realize that its really a dream.

  1. If you can't fix it yourself, no one else will.

  2. Everybody does things for nobody but himself(herself); unfortunately self-love is the only true love. Don't follow those who preach otherwise. The thing is if they don't love themselves, how can you love them and their preachings on any other damn thing.

  3. Most of the things that you die hard to achieve don't mean anything in the long run. After all everybody dies and they don't let you take anything with you to heaven or hell. Who cares if you go to heaven or hell, you don't live to see that, do you?

  4. Milestones don't matter; there is always another milestone and you will eventually forget to count how many just passed away. However if you enjoyed the journey from the last milestone; chances are you will enjoy the journey to the next one too.

  5. The worst thing that can ever happen is when you are about to achieve what you always wanted to have in life. The moment you get it, you suddenly loose everything that you had until then.

Evan Almighty and the funda :D

So i was watching this movie (Evan Almighty) on HBO tonight and it had this message towards the last half of the movie. I'm not going into reviews or comments on whether the movie was good or bad, but this message touched me. Here it goes:

If someone prays for patience, you think God gives them patience? Or does He give them the opportunity to be patient?

If they prayed for courage, does God give them courage, or does He give them the opportunity to be courageous?

If someone prayed for their family to be closer, you think God zaps them with warm fuzzy feelings? Or does he give them opportunities to love each other?
