Welcome to my blog. I’m a word-lover and language enthusiast. This blog is a randomly abstract combination of things I love and hate, that matter, and those which matter not.
I write about everything. I love words! I love how one can paint emotions with a pencil, draw poetry with one’s feelings and exhale life like that. Having an academic background in literature and language, I am creating a life driven by those passions.
I am fond of nights, rains, paintings. Science and people.
‘Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’ life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.’ Steve Jobs
Deeply inspired by creativity, experimenting and discovering — I am just another girl scribbling her life out.
Oh, and you call me Maria.

Hi. A couple months ago you left a comment on my FP blog post and I am, just now, getting around to visiting the blogs of my nice commenters. Thank you.
Your description of ‘you’ reminds me of my daughter, Yolanda, who is in her mid thirties. She is like me, but she is also, like you. 😀
Aww thankyou -seapunk2- for your appreciable visit and amazing comment:D
Does your daughter blog too? Because I would love to hear from someone who’s ‘like me’!!
No, she doesn’t. She’s on FB, though, Yolanda Coolidge. I doubt there’s another! 😀
Oh great! Probably this?
Yes, that’s my girl! (One of three, but the only Coolidge)
One of seven on FB, but the only coolidge;) I’d love to talk to her! 🙂
Thank you again for visiting my blog! I’m loving yours 🙂
I’m honored 😉
I am unable to put a comment on ur ” why do i write blogs” page.
Just wanted 2 say it was gr8… “expressing yourself” is one of the best motto fr writing.. expressing ur thoughts …ur outlook towards life.. & its good 2 share it across the world and get the opinion of others around u..
Its so good to know you liked it! I edited it to add few more stuff, I hope you will re-read it. And Im sorry you can’t comment there. Actually, it was the first page I made and there is no way possible to enable there comments. So it can only be liked (and comments here)! 😉
Other then that, yes expressing oneself is so very important. Better the way, easy the outcome ~
Once again thankyou so much for your nice comments =) Keep visiting!
Please sort the quiz results in a way that shows which you agree and which you do not agree with, without adding anything new. 😀
Nice idea! (and tough 😉 )Gonna do that soon and notify you =)
And I think I agree to most of them!
Thank you for following my blog! You have a lovely blog and I look forward to reading more of your posts.
Thankyou for your sweet comment! I must admit that I love your blog more! 😉
Hello , I have nominated you for the “VERSATILE BLOGGER AWARD”.
Glad to meet you here… Keep posting 🙂
Thanks a million! Your nomination was my very first award on ‘Randomly Abstract’ and I am very honored for it. I wrote a post thanking you here on 7th June: https://randomlyabstract.wordpress.com/2013/06/07/on-awards/
This took me so long, I wonder why! Anyways thankyou again for thinking of me.
Best wishes. 🙂
I nominated you for an award and I’d definitely be glad if you would accept it:
So honored! Thanks a billion Khaula!
Oh and I know I had been *very lazy*. I posted this thanking you on 7th June: https://randomlyabstract.wordpress.com/2013/06/07/on-awards/
Thanks again! Keep visiting!
:)) thanks a ton.
Thanks to you! 🙂
Between us, what this award story. . . .how it works in blogging sphere? Will b thankful.
Well my friend, these are virtual awards that a blogger receives from another blogger and passes to yet another, whom they think deserves it. As in a ‘Versatile Blogger Award’ is given to those who write on variable topics, ‘ABC award’ is for ‘Awesome Blog Content’, Shine On and there are plenty others too.
Usually, each of them comes with their own set of simple rules like mentioning stuff about oneself, or linking to your favorite bloggers. So an acceptance speech/post is written when it does. 🙂
Greetings! I was away for a couple of days, so have a lot of catching up to do with your wonderful posts.
Meanwhile, there’s a small gift waiting for you. Please visit here:
Good day! 🙂
Enormous thanks for the loveliest gifts! I am much grateful!
Always a pleasure, Maria… gives me immense joy to share my gifts with you. Regards.
So glad =)

My pleasure! Your blog is a great place to ‘Brush in different colors’ and I always enjoy your interactive posts! 🙂
thanks so much ! glad you enjoy it 🙂
Most welcome! 🙂
sometimes Internet/blogging/books/diaries are not enough to come out of yourself, to come out of real yourself, you need to live what’s inside you. But i really like what u write, you are very much expressive.
Thanks a lot for your valuable comment! Writing and blogging are merely tools to let out feelings of exhaust and happiness, both. Its true that one must learn to live what is inside them. Thankyou for your appreciation and visit! 🙂
Liked ur opinion.

Hello randomlyabstract. Let us take a picture or idea as a team 🙂 I have no idea for *masterpeace*
Yeah sure, I’d love to because I can’t come up with something myself!
SO…what should that be? 😉
I thought, you can help me !!!
We both could! 😉
By the way, these are great:
And a master-piece could be anything.
Considering the photography which is AMAZING, I suggest you do something like that.
Hope that helps 😉
Yeah, you are great!! And please feel free to take a picture from my blog for your Masterpeace, if you like to. It would be a pleasure … ♥
That is very sweet of you! Thanks a whole lot for your kind offer. =)
you are welcome 🙂
I got one. Please don´t take the same blossom pics
🙂 thank you so much for the inspiration
And I checked them! They are just SO fascinating! 🙂
For me, nothing is more beautiful than these ‘natural beauties’. So pretty, so serene.
And I won’t be taking them, don’t worry! 😉
Helllooo from across the border 😉
I love your blog (sorry didn’t comment here earlier was surfing through my phone 🙂 )
Hey! Tou aap INDIA waley Hyderabad se haen? 😉
Glad to have you here and I equally love your blog. Actually, I love it more: “The Nawabi Musings!” from the name to the Taaruf and everything else 😀
Thankyou for coming and please do come again. And again! 😉
dont you think the quote you quoted fits practically on me :p
yes thinking is a huge curse , i was following your blog already but i just scanned it and this is one well maintained blog, i am so much in awe of people who maintain their blog. also your about me is good. its original 🙂
Hey thankyou for stopping by and leaving your thoughts.
Yes the quote does fit perfect, because you do have the courage to say whatever and not mind about it 😉 I will be cautious though, in making comments there. ‘Stupid comments’ are badly-treated, nahee? 😀
And thankyou for the appreciation. Keep visiting!
haha it was hidden sarcasm that if you dont like what i say then keep your opinions to yourself 😀 dont be cautious though, have courage to say whatever you want too 🙂 and sure I will, i will scan every post too in coming days 😉 look out for awkward comments :p
I know right? I mean, why won’t you be sarcastic to someone who comes on saying you are the weirdest! 😀
Acha you are saying “keep your opinions to yourself” and then you are also saying “don’t be cautious though, have courage to say whatever you want to”. So does that mean, have courage to say whatever you want to, and get criticized more? 😛
Well, I will certainly watch out then! 😉
Have fun blogging! 🙂
i am giving two choices 😛 and thankyou 😀
Lol okay. Thanks to you! 🙂
Hey I nominated you for Shine On Award. You can collect it from here (obviously my blog :D)

Heeey! Thankyou Tayyeba!!!
I am so glad you thought of me. 🙂
You are welcome. 😀
Hey that’s an interesting introduction. Nice blog and happy blogging 🙂
Thankyou Dilip! 🙂 Your visit has meant a lot =)
Just dropping by to say thanks for liking my post … and liking it enough to start following me … well that doesn’t happen often … and to think it happened twice today … anyway thanks again … Interesting info. … Really liked the part about collecting memories … So are the results of online quizzes … accurate … 😀
Thankyou for coming by, I found your blog from White Pearl’s of course 😉 And I must admit I loved the poetry and design, and umm I’d like you to guide how you do that? I mean Urdu fonts kesay? 😀
Also I appreciate that gravatar (R4bia) you’ve put. (Thumbs up!)
And thankyou for your kind words, please do keep visiting! 🙂
Hey thanks for the appreciation … thats what keep me going … 😀
For urdu typing,
Can you kindly tell me which Windows you are using or weather it Apple OS
And in the mean time follow the link,
In step 1 you can install Urdu Fonts … but since you can easily read my post i think it might already be installed.
In step 2 you can install Phonetic Keyboard that will be used to type in Urdu.
Also on step 2 page there will be a layout of Phonetic Keyboard if you are a novice at urdu typing … it will come in handy!!!
Further instructions after i will know about your OS.
Sadly … that is all I can do for my Egyptian Brothers for now …!!! 😦
Oh my. Thankyou! I use Windows XP. Gonna check out the link very soon! Thankyou so much for your timely response! 🙂
XP… I was hoping 7 … Its bin a long time since i used XP … Well there are instruction for XP on the page after 2nd step… let me know if you get stuck some where… okay!!!
What came of it … Did all of it worked out???
Also another question … i forgot to ask … do you post directly on word press or do you use Microsoft Word to directly post you blog post on word press…???
Well I post here directly.. i.e. without Word, except when I write a poem.
Well i kind of prefer to post using word always … its less fuss specially with Urdu posts…!!!
The lazy I am. Gonna download the software very soon now! 😉
Hey there fellow ‘random’.. Thank you so much for liking my posts today and for the subsequent ‘follow’! It enabled me to find you and follow you too. Your blog also looks great 🙂 Looking forward to reading your future posts and archive. Happy writing 😉
p.s people used to say that I ‘over-think’ too!
Hi there, fellow thinker!
To over-think is great, except it brings a lot of personal fuss! 😉
I loved visiting your blog, those short verses, and poems, roller-coaster, happy pills, simultaneous, mad musing, and so much that I’d say: I love everything you write! 🙂
Happy blogging, keep visiting!
Yeah, it is good to have a balance of ‘over-thinking’ and just chillin’!! It would avoid a lot of personal angst! 🙂
awwwww u are so so sweet and kind! It swells my heart to know someone appreciated my writing that much 🙂 I am glad to have connected with you young lady.
Happy blogging too! 🙂
Haha you are far more kinder then, I must say! 🙂
Many thanks! :)))))
Thank you for visiting and liking my blog. I am not even nearly as active a blogger as you are. From what I see you are nothing short of a blogging celebrity 🙂
You are a very good writer and you poems are beautiful . And you are painter and photographer as well. Is there anything you don’t do? 😀
keep smiling and spreading smiles .
best wishes 🙂
Haha this is the most fun comment I’ve received! 🙂
Me a blogging celebrity? Sounds super-cool. [I’m having a hard time imagining that though.] 😉
Thankyou Ali. Your kind words humble me.
Painting and photography are only hobbies, and they’re oh-so-artisitc that I prefer keeping them to myself mostly. Glad you like my poems. 🙂
Best wishes for always.
you are just being humble. You have more number of awards than even a real celebrity 😀
Hahah of course. They don’t get to win easy, virtual awards.
award to award hota hai . virtual ho ya oscar
Ji bilkul. Shukrya! 😀
Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking my photos of the sea. From reading your post above, I think we must have a lot in common. At least if those online personality tests are at all accurate 😉 I love your quote by Steve Jobs above!
We have things in common? Sounds wonderful! 🙂 The quiz results aren’t really wrong.. 😉
Thankyou for your visit and kind words. I am honored to have you here!
My quest for freedom may not be achieved by ‘sailing the seven seas’ but I’d definitely follow your journey to quench mine!
Any way to get the results is good 😉
Happy 3rd blog anniversary!
Thank you so much!
nice interesting “you” ^_^!!
Thank You! 🙂 I am already on my visit to yours, and I love those images and posts!
I’m glad to hear so n_n
‘My power lies in my imagination'<<<<<<<<<<Zalim ne is sentence se loot lia 😀
I am very happy to come across your blog Maria 🙂
P.S. I also heart personality tests.
Haha Whattay style! 😉
Thankyou Maham! And personality tests sure are too ❤able 😉
Wow, you seem to be working your way through my whole blog Maria.
I’m incredibly flattered.
You can probably find the sort of thing that might interest you most by using the tag cloud on the right.
Thanks for showing an interest.
It means a lot more to me than any blogging awards.
Hi, and yes, I have been on my
huntingreading mode. 🙂 I like your slash poetry.
Good day friend I can visit your place and I am very pleased
thank you for the opportunity
Thank you for visiting by, and for leaving me with your ‘likes’ =) I am honored!

Maria! Another Award for you.
I have nominated your blog for the Reader Appreciation Award.
More about this nomination is at:
Thank you so much! 🙂
Aapke liye… 🙂
Oh wow. You’re just so amazing!
Thanks for liking ‘She made me happy’ Maria.
I don’t know if you checked out the film clip of the Divinyls performing Elsie.
I put it on my personal website for readers who can’t access YouTube.
It doesn’t work there too. Says that the ‘plugin is vulnerable and needs updating’.
As in my browser’s fault. I need to update the plugin.
Alternately you can right click on the link, download the MP4 then double click on the file to play it without using the browser.
That assumes you have an MP4 codex in your default media player.
Doing that. Thank you.
Thanks for finding and liking my stew redux post. Good to cross paths with you again. Hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!
It’s always lovely to visit old friends again! Thank you for coming too, and have a splendid weekend. =)
Thank you so much for joining us on wePoets, it’s appreciated. We’d be happy to showcase your art should you want to share. 🙂
I’d love to. Thank you! 🙂
Wonderful, our submission and theme pages explaine everything 🙂
That’s great! Gonna check them out just now 🙂
well, i don’t know how you stumbled upon my page – by random and regretted accident? but glad you did so i could find yours. i don’t buy into this “following” for the sake of getting followers, and could actually care less if any but a certain few look at my stuff. i will, however, be following you as yours is amazing in appearance and content – beautiful to view and jarring to read. no reciprocation expected or desire. don’t ever waste time and space following some shit that does not interest you. life is too short for that. i will be coming back often to devour every syllable and image. cheers
Random stumble sounds right, but it wasn’t a ‘regretted accident’ for sure. Why’d you think that?
Glad you liked my blog’s ‘appearance and content’ and so did I like yours, and I am equally glad to find out your space! Time waste? Trust me, I don’t like things for no reason. I like what I read, and what I ‘like to read’. And don’t worry, I won’t be following things of no interest. 🙂
Do come back again and I will be honored to have your presence here! 🙂
laughing smile! i will be back often. hell, i even signed up for notifications when you post!! peace, and long may your run. bob
Okaay, that’s a pleasant surprise! I’d love to hear back again, if that’s so. 🙂
Thank you for dropping by my blog and reading some of my posts. It gave me the opportunity to see your work, and I am liking it a lot.
See you around.
Visiting yours was a pleasure. 🙂 Glad you’re liking mine, thank you!
Happy writing and happy reading!
Hey, Its so nice to meet you. just wanted to say I’m loving your blog. 🙂
Thank you so much!! I am honored to have your presence here for I equally love yours! 🙂
Aww..Thats so sweet of you Maria. Thanks 🙂
🙂 You’re sweeter!
Hello there, you are a truly artist. Full of an idea, creative, and passion 🙂 I think is very amazing.
Ow, thank you for the liked and commented on my blog 🙂 Blessed you.
By the way, how can i call you ?
This is Maria. =)
Thank you so very much for dropping by, and thank you another loads for your appreciation! 🙂
And your blog is great! It was a pleasure to read them.
Best regards and all my kind wishes.
Hi, Maria. Glad to know you 😉 Success always for you.
Kya aap mere chhote se blog ko apne keyboard se nikle kuchh alfaaz daan karna chaahengi?
In short… would you be interested in a guest post on my blog? 🙂
Itnii Urdu?! 😉
Zarrah nawazi hae ap ki, but my guest post pe likhun gi kiya? 😛 As in mjhy sochny samjhny me kaafi arsa lag jaega, phir bhi I am not sure if I will come up with something up to the mark.
And look I didn’t respond with half as shock as you once did. 😉 ‘Mae? Maria Imran? Aapke, yaani Arindam Saha ke blog pe guest post likhun?’ 😀
Urdu nahin Mahodayaa… Hindi hai… except ‘alfaaz’ 😉
And BTW… Aap shock mein aakar same words nahin bol saktin… cheating hogi… ‘copyright violation’ 😛 😀
And upon that… aap shock mein kyun hain? 😛 😉
I was thinking of inviting some of my valued readers for a guest post… So I invited you… I can give you a line to think upon… you may or may not use it.
And time is not at all a problem… fursat mein likhein… 🙂
So… aap aa rahin hain na…? I would be privileged to host you…
Do you want the line?
Haha same words bolti to ziada cheating hoti! 🙂
Gimme the line, I will surely and happily write ‘something’ at least if you please-be-easy! 🙂
‘Inscribed within a word’ 🙂
Great. I will write a one-liner then. Or a haiku perhaps! 😀
Acha no I will really try to do this. Though this isn’t as easy as you think it is! 😛
Ok… Thanks! 🙂
Abhi se? Thank me later. =p
Ok… give me my thanks back… 😛
*thanks returned for further use* 🙂
so many beautiful pieces. what is it about you???
What is it about me? Beauty comes from beholder’s eyes!
yes, and most people neither see nor appreciate real beauty because they never look deeply. i see (behold) and appreciate.
peace. keep bringing you beauty to light in your writing.
I will keep bringing ‘myself’ into my writing, beautiful or horrible that I don’t know. 🙂
P.S. My comments on your blogs are going in spam.
what does that mean? i see you comments on my pages. is it something i am supposed to fix, and how?? technology is above my head, which is obvious by the simplicity of me blog design. le
It isn’t basically your fault, but all my comments are currently going to ‘spam’ folders. If you check out your comment manager, you’ll probably find two comments that I last made.
i unspammed them. did it work?
Yup. Thank you!
yea, i don’t know what the hell is going on with comments, or much else for that matter. i may need your help.
The issue was with my comments, and now that you un-spammed them, it has been resolved.
Are you having a problem with your comments too?
oh hell, i wouldn’t know. as you may have guessed, i am light years behind technology.
Um okay. I think all is well too.
look under ‘music’ category for a song ‘box of rain’, and listen to it several times. it says nothing, and says everything, and is the most beautiful song i know. it’s by the grateful dead, who were to music what rumi is to poetry.
Listening to it. And loving it too.
thouugh you might. another one of interest – ‘the stranger’. it’s near the bottom.
I like you blog 😉
Hi! Thank you so much for your visit! Do keep coming. 🙂
For you, you are just you.
I wish people around were as uncomplicated as that… 🙂
You have a nice blog. Keep it up
Hi, and thanks!
I am me, and me is me, and nobody else could know me better than me. 🙂
Thank you for your kind visit and words, I am honored that you came by.
Your online personality assessment shows really fun results. I’m always amazed how accurate these can be. And how they also manage to glean the other sides of us. Looking forward to getting to know you better.x
They surprised me too, by describing it so accurately!
Thank you for your comments, I am much honored that you stopped by. =)
And I love your blog! You know this by now, don’t you? 🙂

hi. hope you are doing well. i dig the new look of our blog. i am eagerly waiting december to end so you’ll start writing again. i miss your stuff and talking with you. i hope you are just really busy, and that i’ve not done something to offend you.
Hi, I’m well thank you. I did reply to your last comment on your blog, don’t know where it went to. Maybe it got spammed? Anyways, thank you for stopping by! There ain’t any reason I’d be offended for, just don’t know what to write and how so I’m still quiet. Will post soon. Have a good day 🙂
good. i am glad you are doing well. i know what you mean about being quiet – i go through periods where i don’t speak to anyone. but just wanted you to know i am thinking of you.

Hey there, nice blog. I love the bright colors. Are you from India? If so, which part? I’ve been twice.
“I don’t really know myself as well as to describe here, so I tried getting my results from an online personality assessment.”
I would like to know where you found this online personality assessment. Could you let me know? Thanks
Many thanks for your lovely comment. 🙂 I’m from Pakistan.
You see I took this quiz about three or more years back, so I don’t really remember where I found it. So sorry about that. 😦 But if I do find the link later somehow, I’ll update you for sure.

Hello! Thanks for following. I adore your blog – especially the music! Congratulations on the marriage – I wish you all the best love in the world for you and your husband.
Haha, hi. The music and the current theme settings were for Lalarukh who is getting married this week. I was celebrating her thing on my blog here as a wedding gift, so that is what it is. 🙂
I’m very glad to have you here. Your secret Pixie world, your colors and pastel-works, they’re lovely!
Have a nice day ahead! (=
Oooohhhhh! I know Lalarukh! We follow each other too. I did wonder how amazing it was that two people were getting married in the same week.(Whoops, silly me!) How lovely of you to help her celebrate with such a sweet gift! And thanks for your kind comments on my pictures. They are all a work in progress – a bit like myself, haha!
Works in process – like life itself too. 🙂 I love arts, and I love every ingredient of it.
Lol yeh, it isn’t my wedding this week. 😉 Many, many thanks for your presence and beautiful comments! ♡
I’ve given you a shout out in a quick video post to say thanks to all my followers 🙂 cheers!
Hey, thanks L. Your blog is now on privacy. 😦 May I please get access to that wonderful place again?! 🙂
No worries – which blog is showing as private? The Gratitude Jar (allmylikes) or Not So Worldly Wisdom? I’ve just checked my settings but both should be showing publicly… let me know 🙂
Hey Maria, Salam, How have you been?

Thank you so much and you’re absolutely right. 🙂 Stay blessed!
‘Me’ is woven again in poetry. Great knack to see life through a colorful kaleidoscope n those colors could be even black or white but will still convey about all the colors of life. Thoroughly enjoyed…check few of my poems on my site
Thank you so much, Suyash, for your insightful comments! Your presence here is much appreciated. 🙂 Will head over to your blog just now! Stay blessed.
You are most welcome, Maria. Your poems are so refreshing. And photo speaks a lot. Keep us mesmerizing as always with your creativity 😉

Interesting blog! I don’t read Urdu, though. My father and grandfather grew up studying in the language
Thank you so much! 🙂 I post Urdu stuff only occasionally, so I hope you may find some other things of your interest here. They’re all random musings though.
it’s an awesome Creation! happy blogging ..
i have got my new blog please do visit
Your blog’s layout is cool! But it makes reading hard at some places.
Well, I changed my theme this week only. So there is this problem with any and every post with a previously different font color. I’ll try to set that soon. As for Al-desire, I have already edited it.
Thank you for stopping by! 🙂
I see. Keep up the good work. Keep blogging. 🙂
You too. 🙂
This was cute 🙂 Go girl!
Lol thanks. Welcome to my blog. ^_^
And then I found someone who was so similar to me!
I be a painter. I be an over-thinker. I sketch. I read. I be an imaginary.
I paint abstract. I draw abstract and I write abstract. So many I’s!
It’s really nice to visit your blog though! 🙂
Oh God, cool. You draw abstract and you write abstract? I am definitely going to love your blog! Plus we have so many things in common. 🙂
Thank you very much for stopping by, Amara. Your comments made my day!
It’s my pleasure!
Do visit my blog.

so did you read “Allah Mian Ji” by bushra rehman ? or Ishq ka Ain ?
Heeey. No, I didn’t. Allah Mian Ji. I need that book badly, once again. And Ishq Ka Ain. Will look for it in the library this week inshaAllah. Thank you for reminding and stopping by. 🙂
Pichlay maheenay ye dono kitabain parhny ka moqua mila. Bookfair laga tou pehly yehi dono khareed leen, kab se ishtiaq tha. Ishq ka Ain zabardast hai. Bohat. “Allah mian ji” se ziada yeh pasand ayi. Bohat shukriya in kitabon ka zikr kerny ke liye! JazakAllah. 🙂
Umeed hai aap kheriat se hongay.
this comment got lost in the ‘like’ notifications of blog 🙂 … glad you liked it .. i love both these books .. both are on their own level 🙂
theek hoon Allah ka karam hai … Umeed hai aap bhi khairiat se hon gi
keep smiling and spreading smiles 🙂
Alhamdulillah! 🙂 And thank you.
Ye dono tou sath hi rahengi hamesha. Aap aj kal me koi aur kitab parhain jo pasand aye tou zaroor bataega.
zindagi ki masroofiyat main ab parhne ka bohat kam waqt milta hai 😦
naseem hijazi ko parhain agar nahi parha to … aaj kal ke naye writers main bass umera ahmad ko parha hai .. un ke 2-3 novels achay lagay bass ..
naseem hijazi ke mere sab se pasandeeda ye hain :
Yousuf bin Tashfain
Khaak aur Khoon
Dastaan e Mujahid
Aur aap bhi koi books recommend kar dain 🙂
Naseem Hijazi ko parha hai kuch mainy. Muhammad Bin Qasim aur khaak aur khoon ke naam yad hain. School library me in ki kafi kitabain hoti theen tou waheen se start liya.
Aaj kal me bus yehi novels jinka aapne zikr kia tha unhay parha hai aur baqi kuch purani dastanain. Ab Ghazali aur Mumtaz Mufti parhungi aur kuch recommendable hua tou zaroor bataungi. 🙂

Pingback: What To Write? | Life Confusions
Hey I really like your background wallpaper? What does it say?
Glad you do. That’s Thomas Cole’s ‘Manhood‘, third in the series of “Voyage of Life” which describes stages and phases we undergo. It’s about troubles, storms, and lack of control, etc. But a hint of serenity in the distant background… 🙂
“The boat is damaged and the tiller is gone. The river has become a terrible rush of white water with menacing rocks, dangerous whirlpools, and surging currents. “Amidst the chaos and confusion of the wild scene in the foreground, one catches a glimpse of possible serenity.”
Marvelous. Thanks for introducing it to me, ive just seen the series of four and it has fascinated me to great extent. I even changed my wallpaper to the Youth 😀
I LOVE THIS ABOUT SECTION. Mine is so lame in front of yours and some other bloggers’ that I have read from. 😛 Khair, no big deal, it will be better some day, insha Allah. I also ADORE your theme. Too bad it wasn’t introduced when I was making my blog.
Now, can I just tell you how much I love your writing? *Tries* *okay I can’t*
I am so glad you found my blog cause thats how I found yours :’) Keep this up and you’ll do wonders.
Haha thank you! Thank you. So much. YOUR ABOUT PAGE IS NOT LAME, BHUI. I love the way it is! I am glad you like my writings; it means more than you’d know. :’) Aur theme toh kuch arsa pehly change kia tha it was black before. I have changed A LOT of themes since the beginning of this blog. xD
Equally glad to find your place. ♥
Well I always think okay let’s change my theme but I feel like I’ll be betraying this one if i do so 😛 I think someday I will surely when I overcome this stupid feeling 😀 Insha Allah.
Lol I know that feeling. Over-thinking is in the name. :’) Your present theme benefits text in a cool way though, suits the ‘green book’. 🙂
Yeah I chose this one because of the same reason I left the green book undecorated and plain for ages. Even now it only has a few stripes of printed tape nothing more on the cover. I wanted the focus of the reader to be on the content, and let the words wander free all about. :’) And yes over-thinking is totally in the name 😛
Ohkay this is another sweet post 😛
Hi Maria 😀 Nice Intro!
I write about everything. I love words! I love how one can paint emotions with a pencil, draw poetry with one’s feelings, and exhale life like that. I like writing and reading. I am fond of nights, rains, paintings. Maths and magic.
YAY! I like alot of things you do but MATH is NOT one of them,yet! <.<
Are you sure you don't want me to call you Maria Baji XD Haha 😛
Hi Miss Mysterious. THANK YOU. 😀
I think Maths is beautiful :p Even though it’s not my subject anymore. xD WHY WOULD YOU CALL ME BAJI? Lol. Nahee. Too young for that. :p
It’s great to have you here. ♥
Hi call me MM for short if you like XD
I think you are elder than me 😛 and because I like to tease people so yeah I call my fiend Maria Baji sometimes 😛 but ohkay :3
It is great to have me hear 😀
I haven’t read a book for quite a long time but I’ve read alot of blogs<3
(I think) I found your age. *achievement unlocked* haha I’m older. But that’s cool [you know why?] Because baqi sab is blog pe baray hi haen mujhsy. 😀
It’s great that you enjoy reading blogs. I am waiting to read yours now inshaAllah. =^.^=
P.S. Not baji. :p
How? :3 I knew you were older. 😛
So everyone else on this blog is elder than me <.< even Maria (the other one 😛 )
But see now you have two people younger than you. Miss mysterious and the girl with the green book. 😀
Yus I do! ^.^ In Sha Allah…
I have nominated you for the quotes challenge – https://conversationswithyolandi.wordpress.com/2015/06/25/the-quotes-challenge-day-2/
Thank you for nominating me! It sounds good. I am going to do that. 🙂
How are you Maria?
I have started a new blog ( pakincentives.com ) and I would like you to contribute in that blog with your writings??
Please tell me if you can do this so I send you invitation to become an author on this blog.
I am well, thanks. How about you? I don’t think I can contribute so apologies for that. Thank you for the offer though. 🙂
^that’s how awkward my greeting is. 😐
Maria (the other one.. 😛 ) found your blog and then she told us all about it and now we’ve conquered this land and from here onwards you shall find us as avid and eh, ‘overly attached’ fans of the RandomlyAbstract.
But hey, congratulations!
^there is no escaping. 🙂
Okay on a serious note. I LOVE blogs that not only have stellar content but are also, aesthetically, PERFECT.
And It’s safe to say, yours most definitely fills that criteria! 😀
Keep up the good work. :’)
Haha this has to be one of the best introductory comments I’ve received!
AYAYO, TOTO! How do you do?
Thank you so much for coming here, and for making my day with this beaut. :’) Jazakillah! Your other friend Miss Mysterious had shared your link with me on email and I can’t wait to find out your stuff now. Keep coming and stay awesome! 😀
All the best for always,
hahah wah. my pleasure.
Honoured to have you entertained by my awkward attempts at faking to be a naturally cool comment-er.. (plot twist: I is not O.O )
That Mysterious fella does help me a lot in getting to know new awesome people and forcing em’ to come meet me. 😛 She’s like our personal megaphone.
AND BTW, ToW (abbreviations is sorta my thing..) welcomes you, whenever ya like! :$ I’d be ehh, a-word-even-greater-than-hounred by your presence.
*I have SUCH a horrible habit of blabbering. Sorry if I wrote you a novel instead of a comment..I can’t help it. :s *
Until the next novel,
P.S. All you friends are pretty cool mashaAllah. :’D
tbh, we’re just mildly amusing potatoes. 🙂
i invite you to write a post on my blog , as a guest please
