Daily Prompt: Land of Confusion

Tell us about a time when you felt out of place.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us CONFUSION.


As with most of the people, I feel like a fish out of water at times whenever we are visited by any of our relatives, or if, by an unavoidable circumstance, I am made to visit the relatives.

I simply cannot explain the awkwardness, the way they all seem to look at you as though you are an alien, and that typical dialogue,” You’ve grown so much!!”, makes me want to respond, “Actually, I didn’t have had a lot of choice for that aunty!!” But I cannot. Moreover, you are forced to smile every few minute at the face of a glaring relative, only to make sure they don’t that you are off colour, bored, sleepy, or anything of the sort. In short, such visits can be excruciatingly confusing, as you have nothing to talk about, yet you are bound to show that you are having the time of your life..

Daily Prompt: Far From Normal

Many of us think of our lives as boringly normal, while others live the high life. Take a step back, and take a look at your life as an outsider might.

She stepped out from the van and started moving towards the department at a brisk pace, she was wearing her hijab with the style of latest trend and her usual black abaya, but what made her unusual from other abaya wearing girls of the class was that she was the only one out of the 52 who took off her abaya as soon as she entered the class and only wore it again when leaving. After taking off her abaya and arranging her hijab in a proper way she took her usual detour towards the notice board with her friend, the route people usually take to get out of the department but do not even bother to glance at the board, then again her being nerd was a benefit to the whole class and everyone can ask her for any changes made in the schedule or any important notice.
She seemed quite a boring girl, never going to the canteen was one of the reason which makes her so. Apart from it she was never heard to talk about the movies or music. One thing she ever seem interested in were books. She either discussed books or was seen looking for them in the annual book fair in the university or anywhere possible. She never attended any university parties as well.
What made her life possible to survive seemed quite undecipherable. She was always seen discussing lectures with her friends as well. And as far as tv was concerned, some weekend serials and bbc was what she watched. Her life was unimaginably boring.vargas1

Life is perfect, it seems a little boring from others point of view, but Sundays are always fun. I myself do not like public gathering and stuff but shopping is one thing I love and from books to clothes to grocery all are very interesting to me. Also I have a regular habit of blogging which makes it good. Even though it is all a little difficult to manage, with me coming back home at 5 pm and having to manage my studies and blogging all at once, weekends are always fun. My life might seem boring but I love the way it is.. 😀
