2014, Awards

Awards 2014 –

HELLO, I HAVE GOT SO MANY AWARDS PILED UP AND I DON’T THINK I KNOW HOW TO DO THIS POST.

*Sigh*

Okay, hi again. I still don’t know how to do this post.

This is my fifth award post by the way. And my fifth year blogging too. Like, I just celebrated my fourth blogversary with imaginary balloons on 6th September, two thousand and fourteen. YAY.

Blogging was once everything to me. I was so so addicted to it, mostly because it was my favorite best outlet and I feared no judgement. My earliest posts here are some of the most childish, simplest, and lamest you’ll find. I like keeping them, though, because they were parts of me that I now miss.

It’s not that anymore. I still do love this space more than nething but things changed, I changed, life changed… *insert emo quote* 😛

Coming to the awards, there is the 2013 Blog of the Year award from sister Aisha! She gave this to me in January *gulps* and here’s to tell her that I’m truly grateful for the nomination. 🙂

Aisha’s Oasis is a beautiful blog of her journey through Egypt! You’ll like the stories presented there. =] She has also given me the Wonderful team member readership award for which I’m truly grateful.

Then there is the Butterfly Light Award from the wonderful Beckarooney! She is one of the best people I’ve met here! Loves plants, takes photos, writes wonders.

She had also nominated me for a virtual blog tour which was supposed to be posted on 15th December, but *sigh* I couldn’t make it. Thank you though, I feel REALLY proud of this.

Besides other rules, this award requires me to explain in a paragraph how I am a positive influence or how I am spreading light. That is like. Um. I…

I don’t know how I am a positive influence but I know that I like people and I like living. Life can be very pathetic sometimes and we all know that. Friends leave, mishaps fall, things change, cross cross cross. One doesn’t get what they want, or maybe they do get it and then watch it slipping from their hands without having a say in that matter whatsoever. But Inna ma’al usri yusra [Verily, along with every hardship is relief] and Zindagi Megzara [Life moves on] so you know, one can just as well be okay about it. Why whine when you can shine~ [Lel]

Next is The Versatile Blog Award and The Sunshine Award from aak92! Thank you so much, awesome person! 🙂

Also, there’s a Very Inspiring Blog Award from the wonderful Tina. Thank you, and I apologize for the delay! Suyash has also nominated me for this award with a lovely note on his blog. I am truly humbled, and well, THANK YOU! You made my end-of-year better! 😀

There is also the Liebster Award from this person which was given to me this November. Thank you again, and again, for your friendship and awesomeness!

(I have also been asked 11 questions from him which are pretty interesting. I will write another post to answer them separately, later inshaAllah.) ^-^

Then there is the Dragon’s Loyalty Award from Reva given to me on September 16. ‘Strings of soulfulness‘ is what her blog is called, and trust me her musings are just as beautiful as this name! Continue reading

2013, Awards, By the roaring waves!

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. ❤

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

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. 😀
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. 😛 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. 😛

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.

2013, Awards

Happy Anniversary to Myself!

Checked my mail and a recent comment on a blog brought me to check and I am so glad I did! Here’s a great surprise sent just now from WordPress and reminds me of what I had forgotten! (Only I wonder how I forgot my day. 😦 )

Happy Anniversary!
Standard
2013, Awards, By the roaring waves!, My Writings

I’d like to thank Y’all!

My beautiful ladies and gentlemen! I welcome on stage, our very famous (?) WordPress blogger who started her career almost three years back and is now a proud owner of… erm, just 230 posts! Anyways, on your huge applause we have here with us: Miss Randomly Abstract!!!

*Deafening applause* (A lady dressed in a royal blue sarri comes forward to the stage and turns to wave the crowd before she climbs the first step.)*gestures thankyou by waving her hands* and takes a step forward, still looking back and thump! (the crowd gasps unitedly and looks in horror at the fallen creature)
The host first looks horrified, than he crouches as he tries to keep his laughter when the angry lady shouts at him.

“You bead-eyed! Can’t you see your guest has fallen? Is it not in your list of manners to come ahead and help her up???”

‘Oh sorry ma’am. I’m very sorry’, says the embarrassed host as he hurries towards the step and holds her hand to help her stand.

“Now here. Next time remember to be dutiful. If there is another next time, God forbid.”, hushes the lady in his ear.

‘Sorry for the interruption ladies and gentlemen! Here we have our beautiful blogger, Miss R.A with us. Let us make most of this honorable occasion and ask her about herself’, says the host in an effort to bring things back to good.

“Hi everybody!”, exclaims Miss R.A as she forces the host away and takes his place on the dice. (the host looks disgustingly)

“I am Miss R.A. And this is a very blissful occasion as you see. I have been honored with a numberrr of awards by my beautifullll readers!” *she hides her purse behind the dice and opens the zip secretly* “And so, I’d like to thank each one of you for your support and appreciation. To finally commence my speech, I’d like to…” *her hands in her purse as she tries to find something, her forehead wrinkled with confusion* “quote my favorite….

(Oh wait, where’s my speech? *lady looks terrified as she fails to find her paper which she had kept in her purse*

The host comes forward, forgetting the previous disrespectful situation and asks politely if she as lost something.)

“Yes. I have lost my mind, say that. Where is my written speech?”, she asked.

‘No problem missus. Don’t fuss please. Say whatever you remember or what ever you’d like to, please’, pleaded the irritated host.

“Yeah if it was you, I would have seen how not to fuss when your paper’s missing. It had taken me the whole long night, then another more hours to get it proofread and now that its missing, you tell me NOT TO FUSS? NO PROBLEM it is? How ridiculous!”

‘Well ma’am. You are getting off your limits. Kindly pardon the crowd and end up with your turn already’, the host half-shouts.

“So well my dearies,” continues Miss R.A as she completely ignores the host, “I am still not too old to forget what my favorite quote was. My lovely friend Paulo Coelho once said:

When a person really desires something, all the universe conspires to help that person to realize his dream.

And you see, that has stood true for me! Here while I stand addressing you all at this position on such an occasion, I think it holds true for me. It must, for you too.

Now coming back to my bunch of awards, you see I have got a whole lot of them. This is the third time I have been called, and I shall be pleased to announce what I have in my trophy closet for now!

Firstly, thank you Bee for these special awards! I am so glad you thought of me! 🙂

Second, I must thank Ajaytao for gifting me with so many of them: that day and this day! And as you generously ask me to choose on my own, I will choose those that are new and my favorite. Thanks! 🙂

Now, thanks to my very dear friends at Two Rights Attempting To Make A Left for these awesome tokens of love:

And now, well here is this Shine on Award from Special One and lets please invite him here to praise me.

He: You are a genius! You write beautiful prose and poetry! You deserve this Shine On Award from me, please accept and oblige!

Me: Why Special One! Thankyou!! 🙂

He: “every blogger thinks that they think so much and too much and so deep and too deep and no one can match their brain pattern and so on and on. actually you people are just social rejects who dont have humans to listen to your rants.”

Me: WHAT?? What the hell are you talking about? I, a social reject?

He: “Writing is not a skill. It’s not, ask a 5-year-old to write some thing about his/her favorite thing and they will have some words on the paper too and some one would find a deep meaning and hidden metaphors within them. writing is just a way to kill time and to boost your -..”

(Lady looks baffled. She doesn’t know how to respond and cuts in.)

Me: Thankyou special One! I really appreciate you thought of me, but well I think your time’s up. You may leave.”

He: Every one responds with thankyou for reading it and I respect your opinions and blah but inside they are probably either planning the murder or devastated and let down. Relax love.

Me: THANKYOU SPECIAL ONE. Please leave!

He laughs and says, oh and you have a very awkward blog name! Then he goes away. (Lady sighs with relief while the crowd hoots for that brave man. Lady looks sternly at the host who is laughing hard so that he immediately stops and pretends to be serious.)

“Well my followers! That was just a funny admirer, he has his own ways of telling how much he appreciates it.”, adds the lady calmly.

“Here we have some more awards. Which one is this? Oh my beloved friend White Pearl has given me the Awesome Blog Content award. Why White Pearl, thankyou sooo much! :D”

From Tanumoy

Host: Ma’am are you done yet?

Lady: I’ve won many awards and I want more. If you want to call it hunger then I’m hungry for awards.

Host: Didn’t Shahrukh Khan said that?

Lady: What’s with you??

“Now here is our another lovely friend The Only Martian who has honored me from the Shine On award! Thankyou dearest! :)”

From Lalaruk and Moniba

“Thankyou my friends for thinking of me! You see, I am not following any rules except expressing my gratitude which is because I am very very happy! 😀

Now I’d like to end my post- erm speech here. Yes host, keep on mimicking me. What do you think? Am I blind? Anywaaaaaays, thankyou all!

And yess, to let you all know how thankful I am, I must allow each one of you to choose these awards, so those of you who follow even any single of the following terms, qualify:

  • Those that rate my poems Can You Draw Hatred and/or The Shadow Show.
  • Those that like my facebook page here: Randomly Abstract, which you must do gleefully! 😉
  • Those that are already linked here.
  • Those that comment below! =D
  • And even those that just like! (yes yes, grab your favorite ones!)

Now thankyou and rejoice! Your favorite awards are yours! 😀

(Lady waves to the cheering crowd and takes a step forward when she realizes she is forgetting her purse, turns back, picks her purse and paper and waves again, not forgetting to shoot a stern look at the impeccable host who is grinning joyfully.)

*The End*

This speech has been written in response to the Daily Prompt: I’d Like to Thank My Cats: You are receiving an award –- either one that already exists, or a new one created just for you. What would the award be, why are you being honored, and what would you say in your acceptance speech? / Last but not the Least.

……………………………………………………………………………………………..

liebster award

The Liebster Blog Award

This too is from Amira and is one of the best! I love it!
Liebster in German means ‘dearest’ or ‘beloved’ but it can also mean “favorite”..

The rules for this one are:

  1. List eleven random facts about yourself.
  2. Nominate eleven other bloggers for the Liebester Award.
  3. Notify these bloggers.
  4. Ask eleven questions that the bloggers must answer upon accepting the Liebester Award
  5. Answer the eleven questions that you were asked when you were nominated.

    The Eleven Facts!

    (Eleven? Really, eleven? And I am stuck on the first.)
    Alright, here:

    • I wrote my first poem when I was nine titled ‘Guess who make these?’ (Which stands for: Who Is Our Creator?) 🙂
    • I am the type who saves everything, from gift-wrappers to old chit-chats so that I cherish the memories later! I find it difficult to forget things, or people.
    • Tablet, iPhone, or Laptop – these are currently in my wish list. So feel free to gift any of these. 😉
    • I have a huge collection of memories: from embarrassing moments that are always as embarrassing as were in the first place! *blushes*. And happy moments which are always pleasing to think of! (Isn’t this similar to the second point?)
    • I am very bad at making decisions. For instance, I will think a hundred times before changing a blog theme, and will end up on the one I use, miserably.
    • I like to paint, sketch, and write. (I have said that before. But you see, the rules doesn’t say it has to be a new fact!)
    • I have a list of countries in my travel wish-list. Malaysia has always hold magic for me, maybe because of its name.
    • I am badly stuck at point eight.
    • I was very fascinated by Enid Blyton books when I was a kid. 🙂
    • While in school, I participated in Spelling Bee competition and won the district round! Then our name appeared in the local newspaper as ‘spelling bee stars’! (Another memory for the list..)
    • I rarely use Twitter, and I have begun to dislike Facebook too. I like to socialize, but these platforms now bore me.

    Now The Answers:Amira has asked the following fun questions:

    • Why do you blog?

    I blog to share, so that I can pour my feelings and relax!

    • If you can be another person for a day, who do you choose to be?

    Personally there are few roles I might like to switch but just a day won’t satisfy. So I’d select being a President!

      • Why do you choose to be that person? (this makes it easier answering doesn’t it?) :)

      Because the authorities that I will be granted will almost make me feel I have got a magic wand! 😉 You see, I have a day’s switching only. So I will borrow this role and make permanent amendments to set things right!

      • If you were to exchange your hands with someone else for 24 hours, whose hands would you have? (I borrowed this question from someone)

      Umm, 24 hours? My mother then!

      • Why did you choose the person you chose above. :)

      Cuz she has the most beautiful hands always taking care of me! 

      • What is the color of the outfit you are wearing right now?

      Its black with bright-colored flowers!

    • Why do you think I asked that last question?Haha! All I can say is ‘God knows and you know’! 😉 Oh if you had asked me what color I have for Eid, I’d tell more ecstatically!
      • What is the exact thought running through your mind right now?

      That its kinda tough answering. And also, what am I going to ask my nominated bloggers?! 😉

      • If you got the chance to get reborn to this world, what would you want to be different about you?

      I don’t know what I could change about myself, but I’d definitely refrain from all and any mistakes that I have made.

      • What is the best movie you have watched in your entire life?

      There certainly are certain movies that I enjoyed for certain, but that one best movie is yet to come! 😉

      • What is the one question that I should be asking you, instead of all of the above?

      Wait. *Thinking hard*.. What’s your favorite dish? And I would be writing here a list! 😀

      Now For My nominees:

      Tanumoy Biswas.
      Ain Riz.
      Mohammad Sarosh.
      Silent Fingers
      Sir Utham

      Akanksha.
      Sumaiya.
      Khaula Nazir.
      Minuscule Moments.
      Niki.

    • Questions for you:

      Whoops! Should I do that with you? I will try to be easy with my question Because you eleven deserve the Liebster award so well! Liebster In german;as I told, means ‘dearest’ or ‘beloved’ but it can also mean “favorite”.. and your blog for me is a wonderful spot!

    Your best quality in your own eyes?
    Most memorable moment?
    Your favorite color?
    A dream yet to be accomplished?

shine-on-awardAwarded to me by my two superb friends, White Pearl and Moniba! I send in your way barrels of warm wishes and thankfulness!

Rules of the awards:

  • State seven things about yourself.
  • Link to 15 other bloggers.

Seven things: Extract the first or the last seven from the ‘Eleven facts’ or find them here.

I shall nominate for this award, all those super-awesome bloggers that I found in the starting of this blog i.e. when ‘RandomlyAbstract’ was a new-born. The posts were stupid, they contained typos, grammatical mistakes, excessive emotions. But these people helped me to move on. And encouraged me to write more.

Now that I check back, I realize how much their connection meant to me, and that ‘bloggers’ are the most wonderful strangers.
