Hobbies

With networks being my major, I love to learn and read about new and upcoming technolgies.Internet is one of my obsessions! I love to read about it and understand the different technologies being used to enhance it's appeal and reach. I also like to read fiction when I get time.My favorite authors are Paulo Coelho and Erich Segal.Once I get my hands on a good book, it is tough for me to put it down without completing it! I like to listen to music to relax and put aside my worries at times. Someone correctly remarked that "Music is the best therapy!"

Writing is one of my passions.I love to pen down my thoughts and give shape to my feelings and thoughts through the medium of words. I currently work as a part-time freelance writer on a website called Odesk. My job is to review products,maintain records and basically write about anything under the sun! I also write a blog on social networking for the The Independent Florida Alligator which is the largest student-run newspaper in the United States. The blog explores current trends, facts and issues related to social networking. Blogs are a great way of sharing your thoughts with the world and are one of the most interactive mediums!

I like watching videos or documentaries of people who motivate me and inspire me to be a better person.My favorite video of all time is "The Last Lecture: Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams" by Randy Pausch which is posted below. It is a speech that is sure to instill in you a new sense of optimism, courage and hope!
