Month: July 2013
This is a special birthday post though a little belated, there are several reasons for this post to be special:
- The first one is well explained in the title.
- The second one is that even though, I’ve never much understood the reason for celebrating the birthday, this birthday was celebrated at 12, i.e , exactly at 12’o Clock*
- The best one, this was my birthday in Ramadan.
*Actually, we, by we I mean Me and my siblings have always celebrated our birthdays a week before or after the birthday, the reason being a nerdy one, i.e we didn’t want the birthdays to come in our way of going to the school next morning, since as a child it is always difficult to wake up early If you are sleeping late.
Why do I never get the point of celebrate it, yet I have celebrated it for each and every year of my life, I still think that losing a year of your life isn’t a reason to celebrate, yet the thought that I won’t be celebrating is a little upsetting, may be because we always want a reason to celebrate. 🙂
And after this hasty post, I definitely need to mention that this is my 90th post and I am so glad to blog long enough to write the 90th one on my birthday, and also, that I d not usually use computer in Ramadan but this is an added birthday bonus which I thought to use up for my birthday post. I do have some ideas whirring in my brains for more posts even now, but I’ll be writing those after Eid InshaaAllah. 🙂
If the world worked on a barter system, how would you fare? Would you have services to barter? Would you be successful, or would you struggle?
I think it would have been good because no one would continue to keep stuff they wouldn’t want, and circulation of things(apart from food) would have been much better. Also that I could have offered my services of doing people’s homework(though it sounds weird). I am also capable of designing my own clothes, so I can give on ideas to make clothes, so that is another thing which I can do, apart from it I also have writing skills, to some extent of course, which I can offer. All these services are available even now(but at the right price ;))
Finish this sentence: “When I look in the mirror, I . . . “
I look in the mirror, I see my face, regardless of whichever room I am in, background is not what is focused to me. This seems a little selfish, but I do see myself, but I do not ask the mirror who is the prettiest of all, no, nor do I assume this, in fact I start searching for spots and pimples if I see as much as a little mark from the distant, and if the is one, I am almost inside the mirror within a few minutes with my nose touching it. Actually I am extremely concious f the spots and marks and therefore I do keep a check on my face.
Tell us about the last time you had a real, deep, crying-from-laughing belly laugh.
Even though me and my sister go through a fit of laughter once in a while, but the problem right now is that I am unable to think of any such event, what is coming in my mind is an event during the last classes of my last semester when one of my friend started describing a series of funny events which took place with her on her way back home, the best part were the corrections made continuously by the other two because the three of them went together, and I still laugh about it when I think of it. 🙂
Pinpoint a moment in your past where you had to make a big decision. Write about that other alternate life that could have unfolded.
Photographers, artists, poets: show us OTHER.
The last big decision for me to make was 3 years back when I had to choose what I would be doing with my life, to be less dramatic, I had to choose the field I consented to continue my studies in, and it was very difficult.
I actually wanted to be a pharmacist from the very beginning because of my love for chemistry and sciences, but the problem was simple, the university I wanted to take admission in had much higher standards and I was unable to meet their merit demands, therefore I was offered a seat in physiology in that university, on the other hand, I managed to clear the test for pharmacy in another university. Here was my decision point, when I had to select between either the university of my choice or the field of my choice. I opted for the university of my choice and luckily my seat was promoted to microbiology. So it all turned well in the end, but it was so far the biggest decision I had to make in my life. Had it been the subject and not the university I would have preferred, I would have to travel to a far more distance each day, moreover, five years of time, with much of the input is demanded for pharmacy, however microbiology requires the time time of 4 years and the most difficult courses are only 10, compacted in 2 semesters of the 3rd year making things easier-comparatively. In short, things might have been difficult if I had chosen the university and I am sure I wouldn’t have been satisfied the way things were going on in there, as I saw it in the interview..
