Brotherhood of the World

So this beautiful person nominated me for this award. I cannot thank her enough for all the support she endlessly gives me, such a gem💛 Go follow her!

Anyways,

The Rules:

1. Thank the person who nominated you and link back to their blog.<
. Answer the questions sent to you.<
. Nominate around ten bloggers.<
. Create your set of questions for your nominees.<
. List the rules and display the Brotherhood Of The World logo in your post and/or blog.


Questions from inky:

1. Which emoji describes your life situation right now?

The emoji is yet to be created.

2. When was the last time you read a book? What was it?

It was so long ago that I don’t even remember 😭 I THINK it may have been “The Forty Rules of Love”. However, this book has brought to my mind a very tragic incident that occurred today.

So basically a girl in my class borrowed it from me. Now, I am VERY particular about my books. For some reason, I decided to trust her. And then, after a long wait, it was returned today. With a very sheepish smile. She handed me the book and I thanked her (why tho?) and then she said she took REAL good care and I smiled nervously and then she said something like oh “except for this tiny stain”. And in my head the word “tiny” was the size of a full stop. And then I looked down, fearing the worst. But could there be worse than worst?! Yes. An ink spot. The size of a seal. In the centre of the beautiful cover. I could’ve screamed. However, you will be proud to know, I kept my cool. And, right then I said “Oh don’t worry about it.”

I was burning inside.

3. What advice would you give to someone who wishes to start a blog?

Make sure whatever you write, or, you know, whatever pictures you post, are original. If you write, it must come from deeeep inside you. I can see through shallow words (and believe me, aLOT of other people can, too)

Don’t write something because it’s trending. Like these days depression is a trend. It angers me to a point that I can’t explain! It’s like mocking actual people who suffer. Have some respect.

What you write must be YOURS. And, your words should sound like YOU. You must resonate with the frequency of the universe in a uniquely YOU way. That is how the universe will recognise you. If you disguise yourself with another, comparatively better known frequency, your talent will be masked. Your own frequency won’t be picked up by anyone and that other frequency never accepted you in the first place.

4. Would you rather live  without your phone for a month or live without WiFi for a week?

Idk…. without WiFi for a week?😂

5. If there is a new book and a movie of it, which one will you chose? The book or movie and why?

The book EVERY TIME. Because I am eventually going to try to read the book, and if I know the storyline already, you won’t catch me investing so much time into the book! Plus, don’t movies usually ruin books? I’d rather read the original words of the writer. It was the writer’s piece.


I am a rebel! Not nominating anyone specifically, but everyone generally! Let the love spread!!*

*Me being me, hiding laziness behind the name of the rebellious.

Pleeeease, if you’re reading this (which you are, yes! Yes!) attempt this. I know you are an amazing blogger. Because not a lot of people read here, and I know the ones that do, and if you do not, well, there’s really not much I can do. Except send you a prayer? But anyways. Appreciate yourself. There’s no shame in that! Just answer accidentallyinked’s questions. There’s two people who know that you (yes you!) are an amazing soul inside.

One of them is you.

The other one is me.

An Attempt at a Writing Prompt.

PAPER STARS

I looked down at my feet

My feet stood on shattered dreams

But dreams are supposed to be up

So I looked up

And I searched the sky

But something looked amiss.

My gaze shifted from one star

To another

Horribly disfigured.

A sky that looked blue

As if coloured by a child

But I looked for sparkle

And that’s when I saw

Paper stars.


I tried folks. I really did. Failed poetry.

Writing prompt here by herwritinghaven.

EID MUBARAK!

So another Eid. Hope you all have a nice one. Especially those battling the Monsoon (like me). Ok I know there are worse things than the Monsoon! I know that some of my muslim brethren are in worse states. This Eid, if nothing else, let’s just remember them and send them a prayer.


Mehndi tonight. Wow this sounds really unenthusiastic. Oh well. I never said anything about enthusiasm in the first place.

Let me just tell you that all of you people are amazing. Thank you for reading! Remember me in your prayers.

Youm e Nijaat

I believe there was a day in the history of the subcontinent which the Muslims had named Deliverance Day (Youm-e-nijaat).

Anyways, todaywas that. For me.

You can ignore this one.

Right. So I miss writing. Something other than ratta-fied words on an exam paper. Honestly I get why three students committed suicide last year for these exams. And many more before that. The stress is just so ridiculous! Exams are ruining my Ramadhan. I only get one month of motivation and half of that has been ruined. Honestly, I did not expect this from an Islamic Republic! And on top of that the electricity goes in the middle of the exam. So people, do your exam in this neglected Government college without even a FAN in 47 degrees Celsius. And please, do not pass out or get a heat stroke. And keep the roza because you need to please Allah to get good grades! Why am I even ranting? I don’t know. Anyways people pray. Please, to all the people not reading this, pray for me.

So I thought I’d do a proper goodbye. I’m supposed to be studying rn. I feel a burst of energy and well… I don’t know how I ended up here. Hopefully I will produce a post which has some quality writing. Let me find some motivation *looks around and sees open biology book haunting her in the night*

Rab Rakhan. (Don’t you just love the sound of that word?

My Anniversary

I cannot believe in all my absences nobody missed me. Oh well. All I hope is that Tam doesn’t leave blogging.

Have my exams in case you’re (not) wondering. Pray for me people.

Yes I shall be disappearing again now. See all of you a week and a half later. Never mind that.

Wanted to do a proper cheesy post for my anniversary but circumstances. This has been a real hard Ramadhan.

Oh and by the way Happy Ramadhan. Remember me in your prayers.

No I did not read or like any of your posts. InShaAllah will see you people soon some other day.

It might make you people laugh but when I was a child all I wanted to be was an amazing author who everybody would love. Sighs. YES I can be in self pity.

Pray for my exams tho.

And happy anniversary to me… might have something special for suhoor.

Or I might just leave blogging.
