A boring blog about exciting new things

University starts today! And it’s my fourth year – I find that kind of unbelievable and also amazing! I mean, it almost feels like abhi ki baat that I went through this admission process and now I am writing this with so many thoughts and ideas and memories in my mind, six semesters already down.

universitydiaries_randomlyabstractThe photo above shows a path and a moment I treasure. It’s a pretty simple one actually, May 2015, around 5 pm-ish. We had evening papers and I had got done with mine, everyone I knew had already left campus so the place was mostly empty save a few strangers. And there I sat with a journal and a juice box, my back to a bricked wall, hands busy writing. Favorite kind of solitude.

My experiences here have been great — with people, places, food, friends, events, sfsadgfag. I think I will go into all that later. Right now I will keep ranting about how time slipped so fast, which is again cliched but khair. I remember when my aani was eighteen and shifted permanently to Pakistan, she took a Montessori training course. That woman in that age was my idea of cool. Eighteen was supposed to mean independent, having fun, over the world. Years and years later, on the midnight of my own eighteenth birthday, I was silently crying because I didn’t want it. Nope, skip skip. *Sigh* Now I’m freshly 21 and stepping into my FINAL university year, going to get a MASTERS degree pretty soon (inshaAllah) (not imagining how different life would be after it’s all over) and an aani to a three year old fantastic.

So the point is I’ve lost motivation to make this post interesting but I still found a title that does justice that one of my most important years is here, like right here, and I am kinda excited, hopeful, yay and also bleh, but mostly looking forward to trying out a newer range of awesome!

2013, By the roaring waves!

A sneak and a peek- 012 and 013!

I wish you all (and myself) a very happy new year! May this year brings out the best for everyone! =)

Two Thousand And Twelve is over – and Zero Thirteen is already here! The past hasn’t hidden completely – I can always take a sneak peek and reminisce whatever shades the previous year had stored for me.

Weird was the year, seems so that it ran away too fast. The last year’s celebrations as it arrived are so vivid. And here we are rejoicing for ANOTHER new year! May this year be different from the rest, because years come and go. Only UNIQUE things remain remembered!

As for resolutions and promises, I am going to try my EVER-BEST to blog regularly. And I will start blogging at tumblr too. Some way or other, I will unveil the hidden that is inside me.

Quotes, photos, thoughts and stories. Random as it could be. And Abstract all the same. =)

And as for my personal life resolutions, I know what that can be.

  • I am going to study as hard as I could to achieve the goal that my teachers expect from me, because I must come up to somebody’s expectations!
  • I wont live in imaginations. Its not stupid to do so, because girls usually fantasize the world- but I’m older now 😉 I will live in the reality.
  • And yes, while I blog I am NOT going to fear what others will think. Because that makes me so conscious and I don’t like it 😀

Once again, I wish you all a great year ahead! Keep coming to my blog and keep commenting 😉 And yes, live the rest of your life in peace and har

Yes please ;)

With love,

Maria.

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog which is the MOST exciting gift for the new year! 😉

Here’s an excerpt:

4,329 films were submitted to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. This blog had 14,000 views in 2012. If each view were a film, this blog would power 3 Film Festivals

Sunsets and Sunrises!

Beauty

Photo by me 🙂

So many sunsets and sunrises. Seventeen years that passed – lovely and not lovely. A combination of so many stories that can teach me so much!

A person’s new year is basically on their birthday and that comes just once a year 😉 !! Time to realize how much happened as their new year approaches, make resolutions 9if you’re like me) and review past summaries!

22nd December is always my favorite day, but this time it was some tough! Oh but thanks God the world didn’t end the day before it 😀

Each sunset and each sunrise brings out new hopes, new dreams, and new goals!

………………………………………………..♥………………………………………..

So you all celebrating winter holidays? Have tons of fun!

Btw, Pakistan just won against India right now 😉 (for cricket fans out there)

Here, a great quote for today:
