About

Mon2I tried to draw myself

I am Mon . I am 19. I share my thoughts and challenges. Occationally I write poetry & flash fiction.

I want to connect with people, show a side of myself others can relate to. I also like to make people laugh. My desire is to spread warmth through my writing *hipster with Peace-Stick*

  • I am funny, (and…and…shambolic!) and quiet. I want to help people. I am an idealist. I am not too funny.
  • I live in Bangladesh.
  • I hate casual social-interaction.
  • I am in love with writing and reading.

I am an anti-social, alienated introvert. I am a very anxious person (I got OCD, now what does that spell? Oh wait..) who doesnโ€™t trust much.

I think girls on dates should pay for themselves and husbands should do their own chores.

Does the soul have a gender?

My dream job is to set up a businessย to help people in a way that feels meaningful to me. I am still in the process of finding my “specific” passion. I think everyone in life should find their passion/s (As long as they are not something like “Hunting” which inflicts pain on other beings unnecessarily)

I want to make a career out of blogging (huehuehue, yeah….right. Ha!). One of my goals on my bucket list is to get 1 million page views on a blog- will it or will it not happen? *Face-palms all over the blog*

And I love writing or did I say that already? No wait…….I am Mon. And now you know. It’s Mon. It means “Mind” in Bangla. Weird name for me.

    I was looking for a way to send you an email or a message that is not on your message board. I did not have any success. First, I want to thank you for being curious/concerned about what I was debating for three days. Next I want to apologize for not being exactly honest in my reply. In truth, I have been thinking about making a street art blog, but this had nothing to do with the “three days”. During the three days I was forcing myself to take time to really think about whether or not to kill myself. On day two, I met my therapist. I did not tell him that I was on day two, but eventually I confided that I was contemplating it and already had a plan. Over a handshake, I agreed that I would not do anything without telling him, and the earlier I told him, the least like likely I would be sent back to a locked station in a hospital. Also, for our therapy relationship to work, he must be honest with me and give me his best, and I must be honest with him and give him my best. My honor and integrity won over my suicidal impulses. I am safe again. The thoughts still linger…and will always linger. But I’m safe for now.

    Thank you for taking the time to ask. I apologize for my first response, but I hope this response clears everything.

    Peace and love,
    Macus

      Macus, I am glad you chose to share this with me, it doesn’t matter what you said in the previous comment, trust me when I say I know there’s so much stigma around the topic of depression! Your therapist is an angel in a time of such crisis, I am happy you are still here with us. Honestly, just writing to you over the internet does not do anything much, I wish I was there to help you, like I wish with everyone I see suffering from such problems. I am glad he made that promise to you, being least likely to be sent to the hospital. I don’t know what it is like to be there for depression, but I know from other bloggers that the thought of it sickens them. I am happy that you took that big step with the therapist, Macus, it takes courage to fight these internal battles that no one can ever see. One baby step. One at a time. Depression is a c*nt, but all we can do is take steps. Sending you lots of hugs and love *tight squeeze*

    Hey Mon! I love your blog so much! Eccentricity….I love it ๐Ÿ˜‰ I had a little doubt. How do you make that menu with the sub-menus and stuff? Its so damn confusing!

  3. elizabetcetera says:

    Had to look up the word “shambolic” because I’ve never heard it before.

    shamยทboยทlic
    หŒSHamหˆbรคlik/
    adjective BRITISH informal
    chaotic, disorganized, or mismanaged.

    INTERESTING. Just might be a new word for me. I just got one word smarter today!

    * Looking forward to reading MORE of your blog! ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. daisywillows says:

    WOW it took me over a minute to scroll down with all the fab comments you have got. I like the design/outlay of your blog and I like your candidness. I’m new to the blogging world so even having 1 new follower is like receiving a precious jewel. Thanks for the comment on my recent post. I hope to be as successful as you.

    I think girls on dates should pay for themselves and husbands should do their own chores โ€ฆ.unless the Man is the only member financially providing then I it is the Womenโ€™s job to do the house-work and vice versa. I believe in gender equality.

    Among other reasons, you will reach your desired count, stay firm and don’t change your blog!
    i have much more to place in my Bio! Which give you clear picture of a addict living on the street life..

    Hey Mon, thanks for popping past my blog and following. I can see you are well on your way to acheiving your blogging goals – you are an inspiration to new bloggers like me. I am developing a bit of a passion (and addiction) with blogging too. Your posts with mental health resources are extremely helpful – I look forward to reading more and getting to know you.

  10. ktdxn says:

    Your blog seems very interesting and unique, I hope to continue reading more posts! And also, thanks for following my blog. Hopefully I’ll see you around a bit more!

  11. Carlene Richards says:

    I really enjoy your quirky out look on things, you remind me a lot of myself at your age. I’d love for you too check out my other posts and give me some advice. I’ve always felt misunderstood and writing helped me to express myself because I was an introvert to.

    Keep up the hard work and never let anyone tell you that you can’t achieve your dreams.

    • Mon (Imma girl) says:

      Thank you Carlene! ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes, writing here helped me to feel less lonely with my thoughts xD

      OK, these are just my opinions for improving the layout for your blog ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. I think you should have a theme for some widgets to navigate. For example, I have my widgets on the right side of my blog. I have one for following my blog. Another for searching under “Peruse”. Etc. There are all kinds of options like this that you will find when you customize ๐Ÿ™‚

      2. Here’s a good article on creating menus for category: miurahh.wordpress.com/2015/05/10/how-to-make-a-page-from-a-category โ€ฆ

      3. I think we should have pages for “Home”, “About” and the Categories in our blogs :

      That’s all I think is missing ๐Ÿ™‚ Basically these are to make the posts on your blog more accessible and navigable ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thank you!

  12. emmymichelle55 says:

    You are an amazing person who I really look up to! Your blog is amazing! It’s very useful and fun to read! There should be more people like you in the world!:)

  13. Aaron Paul says:

    We share the same principles in life. I have dedicated a considerable amount of time trying to help others. Unfortunately, sometimes people don’t appreciate the help that is offered.

    I also love writing. Imaginative fiction and high fantasy are my speciality. There is a special sense of happiness when you create something that has the potential to inspire others, I don’t think there’s anything better than that! ๐Ÿ˜€

      • Aaron Paul says:

        It’s amazing how alike you can be to someone, especially when you’ve never met. This is one of the core reasons I created my blog, to connect with like-minded people to address issues regarding our world.

        I wish to inspire people, just as you do. Thank you, Mon! You seem like a great person, and that’s something I appreciate profoundly. ๐Ÿ˜€

      • Mon (is a Girl's Name) says:

        Thank you so much, Sweetness ๐Ÿ™‚ โค Yes, that's also one of the reasons I started my blog, to find people like you too ๐Ÿ˜€ I appreciate people like you a LOT ๐Ÿ˜€ Thank you so much โค

      • Aaron Paul says:

        It’s really nice to meet you Mon, and to connect with you. โค

        And that's absolutely fine! ๐Ÿ˜€

  14. Ansh says:

    A hi5 for the simple and honest “About”.. Love it. Looking forward to your blog eagerly! Hoping to be connected in better ways in future. Cheers

  15. Kayla says:

    I love your personality, is that the right word? I mean we are kind of alike but different. I like to write and read as well ( I’m just now getting into though, any book recommendations? ). I don’t trust people completely too! ( I think it’s just because I don’t want to get hurt or put trust into someone who doesn’t keep their word you know? ) I have been reading your posts… I like them ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. roughwighting says:

    How nice to meet you! Thanks for finding me on my blog. I love your plan to spread love, to write, to show different sides of yourself by writing, and in the end, to relate to your readers. Good job.

  17. milliethom says:

    Some great ambitions, Mon. To help unfortunate or needy people is a wonderful thing to want to do. You have a lot of things you’d like to doin life … good for you! i hope you manage to do most, if not all, of them. Millie.

  18. nsarpakeh says:

    I can relate to being an introvert and having anxiety. I sometimes just feel like a turtle that wants to hide in my room. I enjoyed reading about who you are. :)!

  19. Shelby Slade says:

    Hi!! I’m so glad I stumbled upon your blog, because we’re the same age and we blog about the same stuff! I really do love your writing. It’s hilarious, even if you don’t think so! ๐Ÿ™‚ Can’t wait to read more!

    • Mon (is a Girl's Name) says:

      OOpps, I turneed 19 a few days back ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I need to edit my bio here XD
      Thank you, Shelby! ๐Ÿ™‚

      BTW, it’s a bit difficult for me to find your articles since your home page is your about and there are no categories/archives ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  20. gentlekindness says:

    I love it that you want to have your own business helping others. That is what I want also.
    You have a beautiful spirit. You are a Wounded Healer.

    There is a nice article about wounded healers on the Stargirl blog. Please remind me to send you a link.

    Actually that would be a great blog for you to follow. She is a wonderful lady, full of light and truth. Her blog is very empowering and supporting.

    I have to sleep now. Please remind me to send you a link to stargirl.

    Mon;
    Today, I came across your blog from the reading of my dearest friend Himali’s blog.
    Congratulation for creating this wonderful blog.
    Especially, this part of your “About” page is absolutely appealing.
    “My dream job is to set up a business to help people (Be it feeding the hungry, helping youngsters develop confidence, asylums, being an advocate, etc). I think everyone in life should find their passion/s (As long as they are good and not something like โ€œHuntingโ€)

    Perhaps I will make a career out of blogging, too. One of my goals on my bucket list is to get 1 million page views on a blog- will it or will it not happen? Letโ€™s find out! ;)”
    I wish, your dream must come true.
    Wishing you all the best…………….

    This is quite funny. I saw you post at The Community Pool and I happen to know ate Sophie (a-te in Filipino is a sign of respect for older people). Now, she has nominated me for your free style writing challenge. Such a small world we have. Thanks for the like, Mon. I am looking forward to reading your posts.

      Hey! I posted a comment already, but I’m not sure if it actually posted! Anyway, just letting you know that my site is back up and running! ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. preetixd says:

    I just went through your blog and later I realized that I haven’t seen your about yet. After reading your about, I felt good, Our opinions match alot you know! Great being your acquaintance! ๐Ÿ™‚ Keep writing always!

  25. Itsmine says:

    i have post on that woman topic,where i tried to explain that,not so accurately /perfectly but the genuine try…..& No need to imagine if you were most powerful,Because you are already most powerful!!!!!!!!!

    • Mon says:

      I checked the article out and left a comment there.

      Haha, thanks. Most powerful among human are you and I BI Powerful enough to finish my homework? We will see about that….

  26. Itsmine says:

    I think you got all maturity at this age also!!Looks like that,this is written by original,experienced & very professional writer!!! especially 3rd para is Nice 1!

    • Mon says:

      Aww….thanks so much for all your kind comments today! โค :')

      I am still trying to improve my writing and I hope I become a better writer ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks,

      Yes what I said in the 3rd para is very important to me ๐Ÿ™‚ I dislike people who discriminate men/women because of a freakin' gender difference :I It's like people forget that…people are people, nothing more. The world has a long way to go before even learning that…then all of us can achieve peace.

      • Itsmine says:

        Believe me or not,But i have 1 strong belief that the woman is most powerful among human,but unfortunately women also disagree with my belief,then what to say?

      • Mon says:

        Is that so? What is the reason behind the belief?

        Damn, I wish I were the most powerful! Then I wouldn’t have to play so meek and get my job done ๐Ÿ˜‰

  27. OLive ChamLing says:

    Hie Mon ๐Ÿ™‚ Double Thank You for dropping me a line and following me!!
    Looking forward to your next posts.

    • Mon says:

      Hahaha, well…if it makes both of them happy then I guess it is a win-win, but if it was me, I would feel very sad. I don’t know. I just have furiously strong opinions on gender-equality AND money, LOL! But if he considered that an honor for me then I would definitely have to do something similar for him ๐Ÿ˜€

      Thanks for stopping by ๐Ÿ™‚

  28. Bumba says:

    When I started my blog – a few years ago! – my hope was that the blog would become a magazine with many contributors, It didn’t work out that way, but you seem to be have a similar aim, as you are providing links to others’ materials. Good luck with it. Thank you very much for linking to ten of my posts. I hope you and other people like them, which is all a writer can hope for. All the best.

    • Mon says:

      Bumba (I love your name so much! <3), you are welcome. I am sure you will succeed, we all need a right time and place for success ๐Ÿ™‚

      Actually, my aim isn't exactly a mag. It's more like a platform for all of us. For example- I will reblog from time to time from the blogs of my followers, and more things like that.

      ALSO, I am planning on creating challenges, like a Fitness Challenge or etc if others wants them that is and hopefully more things like that.

      "I hope you and other people like them, " Hey! I DID post the articles I liked very much, haha. There were just so many of them, but I had to narrow it down to 10 ๐Ÿ™‚ I am sure others will like them as well.

      Godspeed. โค

  29. lovetotrav says:

    I look forward to reading more and getting to know you a bit better. I understand anti-social introverted even though I am anti-social and lean more to extroverted… it can happen ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy blogging, Cheryl

    • Mon says:

      Yes, I look forward to reading more from you, too! โค

      Yeah, I am actually what you said. I just need the right kind of people for expressing my volcanically-eruptive words on. I am very selective about whom to do that with.

      Thanks so much, for takin' the time, Cheryl *hug*

    Great about page… Loved your question “…does the soul have a gender”… should spark some interesting philosophical pondering… Thanks for sharing with us…
