Finally (the Winter Break is Here!!)

I love how magnificently the seven colors manifest themselves in a ‘Rainbow’ as one– can we be as noble as these colors who come together to give this world an utter sight of beauty?

 

So finally – my home is calling me. I am visiting my family after a very long nine months which I thought would never end. Earlier this year, I couldn’t go back in the summer break cause I was busy with an internship. Hence, I was looking forward to the winter break for a long time. However, my family is much more excited than me, my mother is a given but except of her, my sister is going insane with the count down.

I am happy and nervous at the same time. Returning home after so long does bring back all the emotions not just associated with my family but it also stirs the feeling of patriotism and love for my motherland. I am happy (not really excited but delighted) to go back home because I have missed my mother a lot. Also, this is the longest I have stayed away from home to the date. Anyhow, the flip side of the coin is that I am nervous. One thing that I am afraid of is that I am a changed person now. I cherish my personal freedom and value the peace in isolation. Going back home means all the hustle bustle, relatives and family gatherings. I have never been the social type anyway ( I am not shy but reserved – there is a difference!). Hence, now that I have been living on my own for almost three years – going back poses a threat on my personal freedom. I will have to be a part of family now while here in England, I can do whatever I want (as in I can wake, sleep and study whenever I want to; eat whatever I want – I can live like a night owl). At home, I have to go by a certain time table; not as in somebody dictating my life but more like a civilized approach to routine life which I don’t really care about in England. The second issue that concerns me is my temperament. I was never the calm person anyway and have always blamed my gene for this short temperament. However, now I ‘think’ it is worse. Anything can possibly trigger me off and I can lose it ( please don’t advise anger management – pretty please) but I think it’s one of the disadvantage of living on your own. The feeling of being independent and isolation leaves you a little confined and if somebody even tries to hop into your space, then you have ‘Watch Out’ written straight across your forehead. Although, it could be just me but I have heard people ranting about this more than often. So I can only hope that I don’t lose my temper and keep myself under good check and control. After all, it’s a party time for me — finally a break!!

Well, I have my flight in few hours and I hope Emirates is on time which is highly unlikely! Also, I apologize in advance for missing out on all the good stuff I get to read written by all you lovely people. See you guys soon in a different land with different experiences! Happy Holidays!!!!

Live, Love, Inspire & (don’t forget to)Smile. Believe in yourself and you can conquer all your fears.

Do Yourself a Favor (Have a good day!)

IMG_2014

This morning was incredibly beautiful and I couldn’t resist sharing what I captured. The sky never fails to amaze me whether it be a starry night or early morning sun rays blending in with nightly darkness. Mornings are not always the same for me. Sometimes I wake up with an aching pain and the other times, I wake up so happy that it has become a mystery for me now. What is it that drives my mood swings in the morning? I like to give my dreams the benefit of the doubt.

This was just a quick update. I wish everybody a very good day/ good night ( my clock is up with you all!). Make the most of what you have now for it may never come back to you again.

I am a bird and every day is a new flight,
Love is my drive and I will share with you this insight,
Ignoring pain and misery, I look beyond my fright,
Today is a good day, its my time to shine bright.

Live, Love, Inspire & (don’t forget to)Smile. Believe in yourself and you can conquer all your fears.

Is Your Soul Worth A Look?

imagesCAY1CLK7

My soul feels uncomfortable in its very own body. I wonder if I am a disappointing it or choking its voice. It doesn’t communicate with me anymore in the way it used to before. Is it that I am not having sufficient solitude to entertain it? Am I embracing life that will yield only worldly pleasures or am I preparing for Hereafter?

I like to look good, who doesn’t? Perhaps, if not good, then at least presentable. Does looking good serve the reason of my existence? Should I be worried about my physical appearance or the appearance of my spirit? If I came face to face with it someday, will I be able to recognise it. Mirror is my best friend, I love to watch the young woman I am growing into but do I have the courage to watch the reflection of my soul in the mirror? I am always posing for a good picture if somebody flashes their camera in my face. This is the age of ‘Selfie’ – one can hold their cellular phone to their face and capture an incredible shot. I will like to see a ‘Selfie’ of my soul. I am told beauty lies within then why this world is chasing the material beauty that is unsustainable; something that is destined to be destroyed.

We are the nation of fools. We blindly follow. ‘Fuck’ is a casual word for adolescents; if they use it then they think they sound very modern. Another very common word, ‘Bitch’; everything can be described in today’s world with the help of these two words by people around me. Of course, there are exceptions to these cases; hence none of the subject should be taken personally. When will we open eyes and realise it is already too late to undo the damage we have caused to this beautiful planet? When will we stop bullying that quiet girl in the corner of the classroom? When will we stop this disease of Racism from corroding our unity? When will we stop hating if our hearts are capable to love abundantly? I ask this 5-year-old boy to draw a heart. He doesn’t draw the complicated biological heart with veins and blood streams but he takes out his red crayon to draw a gigantic ‘lovely’ heart on an A-4 sheet and then colour it all red. He is innocent and doesn’t know how our hearts have blackened over the years. Without any proof, you call Muslims terrorists. Without any knowledge of their Holy Book, you accuse their religion of preaching hate and war. If terrorists in this world give a bad name to Jihad, did you ever take the initiative to ‘Google’ the word ‘Jihad’? No! You didn’t because you are happy with what Media is feeding you with. You are contented to be a blind-follower. Then why don’t you invite Zombies over and let them take your brains? At least, somebody will get fed.

Clueless

preview1-abstract-ppt-backgrounds-powerpoint

“You’re hilarious!” exclaimed Aryan. Estella was observing Aryan chuckling with his friends from the corner of her eyes. His crystal aura and blue eyes at once earned him the attention of an attractive woman. Estella was convinced that he was not an ordinary man. She knew that he will be her last resort. She marched across the room and introduced herself to him. When she smiled, his knees were weak and he fell onto the ground leaving the crowd clueless. His eyes were shut and Estella disappeared in the smoke of the night. Estella was his imagination – a death call.

Happy New Year!

2014-Happy-New-Year-Wallpaper-6

So wait… Even before I forget what I am here for, let me say it loud! Happy New Year to my WordPress family. With law school, I feel like my life is in the fifth gear, where everything happens so fast and furious (Rest in Peace, Paul Walker). I can’t believe 2013 is already done and almost half of the month for 2014 gone as well. I wanted to do this post to shed light on what important happened in my life during 2013 despite of the fact that I have my exam tomorrow – I guess I needed a break from those thick books.

2013! I celebrated my last new year’s eve with my family back in my country unlike this year. After few days, I left for England and experienced the worst winters and snow of my life. Thanks to my immune system that I didn’t fall sick. 

I made a precious life-time friend, Syrics (Sisi) but I call her Gugu. She is one in a million. I can not go back and imagine my freshman year without her. She made sense out of my life and together we experienced and learnt a lot of stuff on our way. 

I and my family shifted to a new place back in my home country. My dad was working on that site for around 3 years and now that we have moved in there, I look forward to make as much memories as I can, when I go back during holidays.

I and Syrics no longer study together in the law school, she changed her course to Media Communication and I miss her plenty much during the lectures.

Moving out of student accommodation and living in a private accommodation is an ultimate joy. I feel like I own my place.It comes with more responsibilities but I find myself more independent and confident now. There is a tree outside my house, probably 100 to 150 years old and I call it Jade. We are best friends.

Plants vs Zombies (1 & 2) became my ultimate obsession and I can’t get over it. I am totally in love with my Zen Garden and for PvZ2, I want to hit million dollars and buy all the plants that are unlocked.

I wrote my very first legal assessed essay for Civil Justice System and in the very first shot, I secured Grade 1 that is 72%. Happiness on its peaks.

Tough luck embraced me closer to the end of the year and I had to make some tough decisions. Thank goodness everything ended well. I matured a lot during that period of time, I learn’t how crucial role the word ‘choice’ can play in one’s life.

Highlights of 2013:

Word of the year: Choice.
Strength of the year: Failure.
Color of the year: Purple/White.
Person of the year: Mom.
Love of the year: Dumbo.
Phrase of the year: For you, a thousand times over. – Khaled Hosseini.
Paragraph of the year (from a book): “She said, ‘I’m so afraid.’ And I said, ‘why?,’ and she said, ‘Because I’m so profoundly happy, Dr. Rasul. Happiness like this is frightening.’ I asked her why and she said, ‘They only let you be this happy if they’re preparing to take something from you.” – The Kite Runner.
Book of the year: The Lone Wolf.
Song of the year: Shiny Happy People by REM.
Show of the year: Prison break.
Best day of the year: May 1, 2013.
Worse day of the year: October 10 & 11, 2013.
Lesson of the year: Motherhood & Forgiveness.
Blessing of the year: Dumbo.
Support of the year: My siblings!
Traits of the year: Love & Patience.
2013 in one word: Challenging.

Looking Forward…..

For year 2014, I have come up with few resolutions that I have to keep no matter what, at least try..

1) Reduce the consumption of coke.
2) Give a break to PvZ2!
3) Take time out to travel.
4) Whenever going back home, say ‘NO’ to Emirates and try different airlines.
5) Spare my hair some space and grow my bangs.
6) Brush my teeth in night (No excuses – I don’t want all my teeth to fall out at 40).
7) Avoid ignoring messages from people and try attending calls (have to stop running away).
8) Learn to play chess.
9) Forgive & Forget (Forgive part is easy, try to apply the forget part in real life as well).
10) Get closer to Almighty and continue the journey to discover my soul.
11) Eliminate working-at-the-eleventh-hour-rule from my life.

Hope is blooming (Get the most out of it!)

I haven’t felt this positive and self-assured in a long while. Though, its considerably chilly in here; weather is as usual crappy (I mean, wet and dry); long hours of university; even longer hours of reading (Law books – beyond boring) but its a perfect morning. A morning where sun may not be shining in the sky yet the hope and the joys this day can bring are endless. The mystery of how I do not know what the next moment holds within the vessel of life-time; happiness or misery – it convinces me to play this life-game in all fair means. Hope you all have a positive and productive day. Do not let “hope” slip away; this is an essential virtue that you will never want to get rid of. Cheers!

Flying in the air for days,
He forgot there existed a land,
Fighting the battles in haze,
He forgot he was a man,
Living everyday like the last one,
Chasing happiness and misery along,
He forgot to remember,
The feel of life, the touch of a mortal,
The grace of love, the passion to give,
The audacity to forgive, the promises to get by,
He forgot to remember,
He was a man, born to die.

Crazy Midnight Post!

It tasted better than KFC's Twister (I swear)

It tasted better than KFC’s Twister (I swear – don’t forget healthier as well)

I had a very yummy Midnight-Snack (I think it was the world’s best wrap) and I am craving Ben & Jerry’s half-baked Alaska (Cookie Dough & Chocolate Fudge Brownie) so much! Not that I don’t have it in the freezer but I am trying to keep my hands off eating too much at this point and time of the night! 

Something I got hold of when it snowed in the mid or March - a chock for many who are new to England's unpredictability!

Something I got hold of when it snowed in the mid of March – a shock for many who are new to England’s unpredictability!(Yet I love England for now at least)

The night was starry earlier, I had two cans of Red bull around 8 in the evening when I went for a walk. The sunsets in Spring are stunningly beautiful though I am not sure if it’s spring in England or not as it hasn’t quite warmed up in here. The wind blows like a tornado is on its way, at times it is enough scary – thankfully I am not skinny.  

"He's Watching Her" - I didn't even have to read the synopsis before buying this one and I don't regret!

“He’s Watching Her” – I didn’t even have to read the synopsis before buying this one (Ignore the background)

Currently, I am reading this book “Killing Cupid” by Louise Voss & Mark Edwards. I must say, a pretty good book – I’d even recommend reading it to those who’d like raw romance/love (I really mean “Raw” – you’d get to know once you get hold of the book to read the synopsis) along with suspense and a major thriller! The main character “Alex” creeped me out more than once in the beginning but I always end up falling for the main(male) character in the book and so it happened for him too – at times I wonder, why men in books are portrayed to be perfect? 

Well, I probably would get back to reading as I am done with this exciting midnight post! I am not stoned but still I am high – the freaking part is “I don’t know why”! 
 
So…….. May the odds be in your favor – Goodbye! (Good Night/Good Morning/Good Evening according to your time zones – Happy Friday)
