Binge movie watching. Can you believe I watched theee movies today?

I watched three movies today. 1 DC movie, and 2 Marvel movies. If I list them out, they are:

  1. Lego DC Superheroes: The Flash
  2. Captain America: Civil war
  3. Avengers: Endgame

And I am so unhappy to say that there are 2 deaths of the coronavirus in Nepal. It all started yesterday. There has been a total of 292 cases. Now that is scary. Like, some days ago, there had been 83 cases in only 1 day. Now, that was so quick. It felt like that day was a blink of an eye. 

And I hoped you liked the “Homestyler” app of yesterday. I will share the floor map of the house I made after I finish making it. Lastly, I want to share a quote today:

This quote is in one of the articles on this website. 

“You do not know how strong you are until your only choice is to be strong”

Bye!! See you tomorrow!!

Do you know there are two people who do not want DC survey?

I am not so busy today!! It’s Saturday!! A least there is a holiday even tomorrow!! Woohoo!! And today, I was on my desktop the whole day creating my own home in “”. Just tell your email address and make up a password!! And, it is free!!

Next thing, I watched 2 movies of Lego DC today. They were:

  1. Lego Shazam
  2. Lego DC Comic Clash 

And I will start the Dc survey from today. And I saw that two people do not want the DC survey!! That is sad for me. But, the majority won with a yes!! And I am starting to work on it. I am going to share one more cartoon logic today!!

And also, SpongeBob is carrying a boat, not a car. Ok then!! Bye for today!!

Do not forget to listen to my speech titled “My Wonder World”

OK!! My speech went well, but I was not in the stream. I went with the ideas given by Deepti ma’am. I followed what she said, and unlike last time, my speech was properly structured. And the title of my speech was “My Wonder World”. I told a poem in the beginning!! And two quotes in the ending. It tells about “humanity overall” just read and find out.

And as I was writing this, there are now 258 cases in Nepal. And only 36 recoveries. I am still hoping for the best!! Bye and good night!!

One of those days when I dont have much to share, but I have a survey for you to fill. It is about Marvel superheroes and you will love it. Please do so.

I do not have much to share today because I have to practice for our speech competition. You can watch me live on the Facebook page of Aksharaa School. Anyways, let me share a little today. 

There are so many cases and it is increasing in large amounts day by day. Ther are now 146 cases in Nepal. Only 35 recoveries till now. Well, I will make this short and sweet today. I am ready with my speech after 4 hours after I started writing his diary. And, I am giving you all the Marvel Survey today Click here. Bye!! See you all tomorrow!! And if you want the link of the Aksharaa school page, here it is. Please be there if you can at 9:30 AM (UTC+5:45)!!

Today, I learned how to type in Nepali in google docs. I have explained it below

Ok!! What should I share today? Maybe about the Marvel survey, I was talking about some days ago. Or maybe just my thoughts. Well, let me choose the second option. Today was a little bit of a sad day than other days. A little bit less fun. But, it was still amazing!!! And I learned how to type in Nepali in google docs. Just press CTRL+ALT+SHIFT+K. If you have input tools ibn the doc. Well, if you do not, I am sorry I do not know how I got it. 

Next, there are 219 cases and only 35 recoveries. Can you believe it? Like we started from 1 case that also recovered, and now we are here. Like, this is quite a journey. 

Anyways, I think I will finalize the google form and it is almost ready to publish, except that my mother gives it a final check. I will be sending it tomorrow. I have sent it to my mom only until now.

And here is the quote of the day.

If people are doubting how far you can go, go so far that you can’t hear them anymore.

Michele Rutz

This is my thought!! Some people really judge us, so, I think going far is going to help if you can’t control it. Ok then!! Bye for today!!


  1. Simple and real. Out of many, your strength on talking to strangers is my favorite one. Life is all about exploring and understanding what is already out there. I wish you lots of love and luck to first keep writing and second love what you do in life ❤️.
