Blog Dream.

Daily Prompt: Progress

When you look back at your blog on January 2, 2015, what would you like to see?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us PROGRESS.

I would want to see, firstly, a connected food blog, which I intend to to do for more than a year but haven’t started. It will contain all my mother’s special recipes and since she doesn’t like blogging much, I had decided a long time ago to publicize her creativity myself, but I am so far not near it at all.

Secondly, I would want at least one of my post to be published in the freshly pressed, and it is really an ultimate dream.

And finally, I would want my novelette completed and published on my blog as a new page.

But all the above given require a long time and I don’t see a lot of it in the coming year as it would be the final year of my university and therefore I expect all the above given to happen automatically or just simply in any easy way not requiring my time, yet fulfilling my blog dreams easily.. ;D

i_love_blogging1I have been wanting to write for ages, my last post, if I remember correctly, in fact I just checked it, was more than a month ago.  I couldn’t write because of the thing which happens every six month in my life only to disturb my routine life and immerse me in my books, i.e , EXAMS!! Last month, all the published prompts were more than amazing and I wanted to write for each and every oe of them but exams came in my path of blogging.

Exams ended last week, but after the exams, I was so so so tired of words, letters and books that I did not want to think, even though I have had I few ideas pending and a novelette to complete, I did not feel like writing at all. But today I feel like I am back to my online life. No matter how much I go on using Facebook, keep on crushing the candies, and stalk my so-called friends, I  miss my blog and I am glad that I am back. 🙂

Something to fill in.

Daily Prompt: Fifteen Credits

Another school semester will soon begin. If you’re in school, are you looking forward to starting classes? If you’re out of school, what do you miss about it — or are you glad those days are over?

images (1)If this one is specifically about school, I am definitely done with it for around 5 years now (School here is for 10 years), but then I moved on to the college, which was a two years span, and those two years were the very best of my life. I had amazing friends, teachers and a very good college which was not only gave me amazing basics for my university students but also allowed me to gather the memories  to last me life time. Even though our group of five friends is now busy pursuing their own careers, we had a great time and our college was no less than a school, which allowed us a two-year extension on the schooling and I really miss those days, but the best part is that even though I have been in the university now for the past two and a half-year, I don’t much miss the college or school due to the wonderful fellows I have. I really think that when we will part ways, things will be difficult and then might be the time for us to miss school, college and the university altogether, but in my opinion, as long as I am in the process of being educated as a student, I do not think that I will be missing any of my education institute because there will be something filling in on its space.

AND WHEN I BECAME A VAMPIRE..!!

Life these days has turned very boring, not only for me but for a lot of people around me and near me, that is not because I am near them of course, in fact that is because we get bored with everything very easily. To rid ourselves of this boredom, the most preferred way is to watch a good movie on a weekend or some people even manage to watch a movie each day. Those people who watch a movie everyday does not seem to take an influence of these movies in their lives, but people like me, who could manage to watch very selective movies and that after very long intervals of time watch a movie so enthusiastically that they try to find the characters of those movies around them or turn into them more like.

I am a normal person, no matter how much I think that I don’t let these stupid English movies inspire me, can’t take refuge from their fascinating ideas and as a result I turned a day of my life into a complete havoc.

The story began when I woke up early in the morning to offer my prayers, I felt a weird sort of itching near my ankle of my right foot. I ignored it, not wishing to wear my spectacles at the moment because that would then turn me sleepless and I would not be able to catch an hour of sleep before going to uni. It was good that I decided to ignore it because that rest was the last best bit of the day left.

Being unaware of what was coming in my day ahead, I woke up after an hour, got ready and was leaving, when I realised the area which was itching like hell in the morning now bore two very identical marks, which were about 2mm in size each with a distance of about of 10-12 mm.

Now one glance at those marks, suddenly gave me a brain wave and I realised that i have seen such marks in movies, mythological pictures and read about them on mythological websites. These were clearly the markings of those who have just been bitten by a vampire!!! With this thought, my mind exploded with questions and ideas of intense diversity and I suddenly got excited. Definitely, the first question which came into my mind was that why was i not feeling empty and devoid of my soul? But then an answer erupted with the same vampire speed that my excitement is pretty much more than enough for now to fill in the space of my soul.. And who cares for a soul now that i have got ultimate super powers.

And with that excitement, i left for university to test my powers and make it memorable for the rest of my life…

For the first time in my life, I regretted having a van to pick me up, because I wanted to see what my speed was, but then thought that I’ll have plenty of other chances to observe that, right now I should go in van because if I would not, I’d be owing some explanation to the “VOLTURI” for not acting human and thus, grudgingly, I sat in the van.

While in the van, my head was buzzing with thoughts, I thought Woah man!! It sure is difficult to have to listen to so many thoughts at once and then commanded them to SHUT UP!! Right at that moment, I realised that I definitely could not read minds and those ideas were merely my own, asking me that what on earth, made a vampire to bite me on my foot? But then i thought that she might be in a hurry and thus she’d just let in enough venom to transform me, but the thought disappointed me that I’ve had no extra power.

Before leaving my house, I had double checked the colour of my eyes, to see what colour choices do I have, but no change made me think that probably being extra jubilant doesn’t change your eye colour and I might have turned into a vampire not a metamorphmagi to change my eye colour on will.

When I reached the university, I wished to check my strength and power; The first thing which came to my mind, to destroy, was my cell phone because it was now useless to me, I might have been able to reach any place instantaneously and so I started crushing my cell phone with my bare hands (because I’ve removed my gloves which I wore with a complete facial cover to hide my sparkly skin in the dazzling sunlight of Karachi), The cell phone did not crush but it sure left red marks of two keys of my cell phone on my palms. Disappointed again!! But I did not lose hope and thought that these powers might not have transferred initially & I haven’t watched the fourth part of Twilight in which Bella turned to a vampire and so I know not much of initial phases of transformations.

When my friend asked me what I was doing and why I was wearing so many winter clothes in the month of April, I responded quietly that I was suffering from fever and felt cold. I actually wanted her to check me for any signs of fever on my hand and forehead and shout aloud: Oh my God! Sam you are ice-cold… and she did exclaimed alright. But the words were not what I wanted to listen… In spite of it she mouthed, Oh my God Sam! You seem to have a very high fever, your skin is heated like hell!! Now this came as a real shock, but I was not going to give up. Since the day was short and soon it was time for me to leave for home. Not having eaten anything since morning because I thought that I won’t need any food now, I was feeling extremely hungry. But I again gave myself a feeble hope that it might been because I’m not used to of it and this hunger might be that for blood.

While on my way to main gate which is very far from my department i found a tree, a tree near which no students were present, i again tried my luck, and started climbing it with much difficulty now that I’ve had gloves and all my scarves and stuff covering my face and sore fingers underneath the gloves. Failure embraced me once again and i fell down with a thud,due to which students from the nearby sports ground came to see the source of commotion and found me lying flat on my back. I stood up with all the confidence I could muster and after muttering to them that I didn’t see the tree ran away from the spot. That run had two reasons: First one was to run away from that humiliating situation whereas second one was to give one last shot to my exhilarating thought. I ran very fast, wanted to zoom, more like, but again, i fell down. This time my shoe lace was the hindrance. Girls now started to ask me who I was running from, wishing not to be interrogated yet again, I came out from the gate which was very near, crossed the overhead bridge and simply rode to my way home without further ado.

And from that day onwards I’d never think of these stupid mysteries because when I showed those marks to my mom, she told me that these were the result of a scratch of my new sandals.

Slow and Easy does it.

Daily Prompt: Ch-Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes

You need to make a major change in your life. Do you make it all at once, cold turkey style, or incrementally?

Some changes are not under my control – They come suddenly, we cannot help it.
Some changes are those which we acquire by ourselves – One of them, is the change of the money, which is welcoming when you want to spend on minor things.
The other type of change is acquired voluntarily – This can either be in lifestyle and can be any replacement as well.
To me, the change is more adjustable when given a time, one can get easily accustomed to it, and they can easily blend-in the lifestyle.
Besides, it doesn’t gets to the head, it becomes easy to get on with the life and let the change sink into your life.
The instance I just saw was mixing the food in colour and sugar in milk gradually while stirring it all the he same, the colour blended in, the final result was a changed product, yet the process of mixing the sugr in it didn’t stop. 🙂

Here we go again..

Writing Challenge: Starting Over

Getting started on anything can be very exciting.. You actually look forward to something new.. There is a maddening urge to get started and prove yourself.. Even if you are dreading that particular thing to start, you have something new to look forward to, you do know that you don’t want that to happen but you’ll surely learn something from it .. That feeling of what is coming up and how it will bring out change(s) within your life is very precious.. Either it is a new post on your blog, a new school year or even a new book. A new beginning is always a new journey to me which is exciting in one way or another.. But this is also a fact that chances of success can almost be equal to the chances of failiure..You might not be able to write a very good post, or be successful in your class, or maybe the book you started was not your taste and you might dislike reading that author from that day onwards.. This is where the point of STARTING OVER starts, standing up after you fall down is very difficult..Starting Over Again (title) You don’t have anything new to look forward to.. You might have learned from your mistakes but I never find the prospect of starting over inviting.. You have to pretend to yourself that you haven’t failed and all you went through was just a trial game.. You have to forget all those experiences you have had in your past and think that THIS is the new beginning.. It is always demanding to start over.. I also believe in the fact that success achieved by starting over have more laborious efforts of the person, not because he had done it all in the past, but because he had gone through it all yet again to achieve what he desired so badly that he’d do anything to have it.. 🙂
