And then my soul saw you and it kind of went "Oh there you are. I've been looking for you.”

Awards 2013

Aee, hello lovelies.

This is your favorite Miss Randomly on her fourth award ceremony on RandAbstract. ^_^

The reason for the post delay is simple: I needed to feel cranky to post something as crank, and yester was my day and I was feeling very high. Uh, euphoric. That’s the right word.

Anyway, the first award that we have here is the Versatile Blogger Award from LifeConfusion’s blog. Handed to me on October 22, this award requires me to tell seven things about myself. Thank you sheen, or Zed, for this award. Much love. <3

The next award is the same versatile award, this time by Pamela from the Resonner’s blog. Thank you! <3

Now. Seven things about myself? Um. I’ll do this later.

versatile-blogger-award-imageThe third nomination is for “I am part of the WordPress family” award! :) This one’s by Yasmeen Baloch from kushiywa. Thank youuu Yasmeen(:

wordpress-family-award1There’s one more from her, the “xxtraordinary BLOGGER award“. The rules are to answer the following:
1)Write what you think about me.

That you’re one sweet, amazing soul and one lovely person that I’ve come across, thanks to WordPress. =)
2)What is your favorite book?

Favorite book? Mus’haf by Nimra Ahmed. I loved reading it.

3)If you got a chance to be the president of your country so what changes will you bring?

Haee. If I get to be my country’s president, I’ll make sure to.. um, I will make sure to? Change our system of education, kill a few people, save another lot, and write an essay about all possible things I’ll be able to do.
4)Tell about your nature.

My nature.. That’s a tough one, Yasmeen. :) I think they all already know pretty much. But if I’m to say about myself, I’m weird. Baqi ask my friends and they’ll provide you a list. ^_^

Thank you again! :)

xxtraordinary-blogger-award-phoenixThe next one is (yes, I’ve quite a many piled up. Laziness could be a part of my nature) Reader Appreciation Award by Pamela again. :) This one also requires me to tell seven things about myself which makes it a total of 7+7+7=? Ai, I had my maths paper recently. 21. I’ll do the answers later some day. ^_^

reader-app-award_thumbAnother ‘versatile blogger award‘ by Dr. Kiran Acharya from the ‘Sea and Me‘! Thanks a million, Kiran. :) Seven facts again. Oh em gee.

Last but not the least, here’s this ‘Super Star Blogger Award’ from Syeda Maham at the Radical blog! You know how pleased I am? :) Thank you<3

Her interrogation segment:

  • Pray tell us….why do you write?

I’ve a whole page dedicated to this answer, but I wrote that when I started my blog and never updated later. So well. I write because I need to write. It’s an outlet, a passion, and a hobby. Writing is a method of preserving moments, and expressing emotions. When I don’t write, I draw.

  • what is life to you?

Life, um. I don’t know. It’s a blessing I’m living, of course. But lately that I realized how typically predictable life itself is, sorrow after ease and laughter after tears, it doesn’t seem all that exciting to me.

  • Do you forgive easily?

Yes. Usually. But it depends person to person, feelings to feelings. I can’t stay angry for long, but I find ‘forgetting’ difficult.

  • Beauty.Your definition.?

The art of living in the moment and making the most of it.

  • Fiction or hardcore fact?

…real facts wrapped in fiction will do too.

  • A fictitious character that resembles yourself (in any respect)

Mae tou btadungi, but do try answering your own questions later. :D
Um, okay. A friend said Emily from Emily of New moon resembles in some ways, but I haven’t read it so far so can’t say. I wonder why I’ve Elizabeth Bennet in my mind. :P Or someone from classic literature might do, for I imagine quite a lot. Or. What about my own written stories? There’s a novel I wrote, like a few chapters. It totally resembles me. *Top Secret* =p

  • Something you’ll never forget

These questions. And a whole lot of other things like when Abdur Rahman was born, when I won the Spelling bee thingy, my last-last academic results jab I got in top twenties in Khi, when dadi died, a poetry I read somewhere, sister’s wedding, interior Sindh tour, itna kuch. I’ll never forget anything, until unless.. of course.

  • Did you ever hate..?

Yup.

  • Your brand of utopia consists of…..

Happy beginnings, middle paragraphs, last sentences.

  • Your comments on the Radical blog

Okay first of all, these questions are ACTUALLY tough. Yes you’re grinning, but bhuiii. Anyway, your blog is amazing Maham! I love that shair you once shared:

Ab socha hai k pather k sanam poojunga….
Takey uktaun to takra b sakun,mar b sakun

I love your poetry, your writings, and your way of thinking. I love false sense.

superstar-blogger-awardPhew. I’m done with these. Oh there was one from Fahaad, the Autumn-Liebster award, but since he deleted his previous blog the award went away too. :P

Now the nominations.
THIS is what I actually run from, because I’m just so sure I’ll miss somebody very important. The last time I did the award-post, I didn’t mention names. But then – alright.

      December 23, 2013 at 10:15 pm

  5. Maria. Your habit of doing things that render me unequipped for the moment is not going to seize… is it? Not that I want it to. :)
    Yet… I want you to realize the state at my end. You frequently do stuff, where I know for sure that Thanks or simple comment won’t suffice.
    I guess, it’s time for you to write another poem, and then would come my reply…
    because that’s how it’s working here… isn’t it?
    Alas I don’t know any other mode of conversation here… and that’s the only language that I know.
    I wish for you things that would make this tiny box overwhelm.
    So, in short sentence… I wish for you multiples of whatever keeps you close to the love’s essence.
    P.S. Please don’t mind my naivety. I’ve never known how to do a proper thanks…

    December 24, 2013 at 3:58 am

    • Thank you for your kind words. They mean a whole lot. :)
      P.S. Don’t worry, you’re good at nearly everything you do including this. It’s me who doesn’t find appropriate words when it comes to responding as such.

      December 25, 2013 at 10:29 pm

  6. Congratulations Meri Pyaari Maria ;)

    Before I make any comment, please help me out what and how exactly this works.
    It’s my first one, so little slow. :-/
    By looking at the comments, I’ll, too, say congrats and thanks. hehe

    January 7, 2014 at 9:14 am

    • Hiii Umer .
      Well blog-awards are like tokens of appreciation, they’re passed from one to another through special posts. Each one of them comes with a specific set of rules, mainly like ‘mention some facts about yourself’, ‘nominate your fave bloggers’, ‘link back’, and ‘question-answers’ wagera.
      It is NOT necessary to abide by all those rules, you can simply accept and display or accept and move on. That’s all. :)

      January 7, 2014 at 3:09 pm

      • Aha! Whoever came up with this idea, done a good job. (I’m sure it’s been happening for a while, but this newbee didn’t know. :( but now does. )
        Shukria bohat bohat for getting me in it. More because that’s my first time getting appreciated like this.
        Have a good one. :-)
