Untitled Due to Mood.

So I don't usually like to Rant about things, well I do, but not really on my Blog...though I think I might've before too...ANYWAY!

After getting many discouragements from almost everyone about almost everything - you wouldn't call me your typical jolly camper.

I don't disagree. I haven't been myself lately.. everything is off balance. In simplest form, everything is 'screwed up'.

But I'm trying, because I really want things to work/improve in terms of everything: my academics, home and social life. (I probably sound like a psychopath right about now) - However it is not going so well.

You know those times, when you're extremely angry or upset about something? And you just want someone to understand you? You act abrupt and behave irrationally because you actually want someone to ask you, "what's wrong?".
I usually don't want people to fuss over me when I'm upset, but this is/was one rare time I wanted someone to comfort me. *sighs* Unfortunately, I was 'let down' if you may.

What got me so moody? Chemistry. That's right, I'm trying to work hard and do my stupid chemistry homework, but three questions in a row did not make any sense to me. As a result, I got extremely upset.. upset enough that I wanted to rip up my entire notes and go bang my head somewhere. I really don't like chemistry and I try to get it, but it just seems so pointless to me.
And I'm going to stop right there about that topic because it's making my blood boil once again.

Anyway, that was my little rant about some very stupid things. If you are reading this, please pray for me. Trust me, I need it.

Yeah so It's been a whole while since I last posted.. 3-4 mnths to be's been busy. But right now.. I just have to update this with a few OH MY GOD realizations:

2 - Time is running out, I really need to work to my maximum limit.

4 - I should really be doing my Biology assignment.

5 - OMG it's DECEMBER!

A Mess of Fortunes

With going back to school in approximately 33 hours (calculations may be at fault due to sleepiness) I decided to make my summer some what productive and clean out/organize my valuables.

Today I frantically looked around to find my enormous bag full of greeting cards I have been saving since I was six. I found them, and was I ever happy I had them saved.

I found party invites, get-well soon's, birthday wishes, eid greetings, thank-you's, valentines and even little notes. These are the things which really take you round and about memory lane. The good times and the memories all preserved encriptions on paper. How I adore cards! I'll have you all know that every little note, every little paper, anything that was given to me from someone, stays with me forever (yes of course that makes my mom annoyed that it takes too much room and looks like a mess.. but oh well!). I have all those cards saved from everywhere. To all those who ever gave me one, THANK YOU once again, I have treasured it.

Two days ago I even cleaned up my drawers and a bag which was loaded with papers, items and God knows what else. It was a mess really, but everything in there was worth a fortune for me. There were pens, markers, papers, pictures, small gifts, key chains, ribbons, gift wrappings.. you name it! The thing with me is, I like to presevse memories..I like to keep things as long as I possibly can.

Anyway, I dumped it all on my floor (starting at about 6:30pm). I started sorting through, reading papers, examining and admiring the small items..and by the time I was finished and the drawer was ogranized it was 2:30am. Yeah, I had a lot of stuff. But the good news it's all organized now, did throw away two bags of old paper and things that were broken and no longer of my use. It was nice trip down memory lane. (A separate blog devoted to those fortunes soon to follow).

Now school's going to start, the final senior year. Whoa.

I look forward to collecting all the more memories.

Quotes ..

Sometimes you come across a few sayings which really mean something to you.. here are a few I just adored:

" 'latte' is italian for you paid too much for that coffee"
Me and two of friends went to Starbucks, bought Frappchino's.. total ripoff! Rather can an icecap from Tim Hortons! :P

"Our eyes are placed in front because it is more important to look ahead than to look back"
so true!

"If you don't go after
what you want
you'll never have it.
If you don't ask,
the answer is always no.
If you don't step forward,
you're always in
the same place"
Sometimes we're too afraid to move on or to ask..but if we don't, then we really do end up no where..

"Sometimes you need to
just to see who will come
I have a friend who always runs away.. maybe this is why ;)

"Fall in love or fall in hate.
get inspired or be depressed.
ace a test or flunk a class.
make babies or make art.
speak the truth or lie and cheat.
dance on the table or sit in a corner.
life is divine chaos, embrace it
forgive yourself. Breathe.
and enjoy the ride..."
I don't know why I liked this..but I guess it was because I like idea of enjoying the ride of life.

some people are like
slinkies. They don't
have a purpose. But
they bring a smile
to your face when
you see them
going down the stairs"
Ooooooooh This one I like!! How thrilling that must be/is! :P

"Be strong now
because things will get better
it might be stormy now
but it can't rain forever"
..I wish I came up with that!

give up on someone
you can't
go a day without
thinking about!" sweet is that?

"Someday someone will walk
into your life and make you
realize why it never worked
out with anyone else"

...and that's all the stack I have for now!

Ramadan Mubarak

Once again the holy month greets us!
Gives us yet another opportunity to purify ourselves and cleanse us of our sins. So let's make the best of it and remember each and everyone we know in our prayers. It's time ladies and gentlemen..or Islamic sisters and brothers to pray our hearts out! Happy Ramadan to everyone and their families!

(Picture looks better enlarged to its' proper size!)

Wake-up Call

With only 19 more days until school starts, frankly, I'm freaking out.
It seems like everything is happening so fast and time just isn't on my side.

I woke up this morning with a big envelope next to my pillow -- my Grade 12 time-table. I avoided even looking at it for half an hour and then finally got the guts to open it (reading all the other sheets first and left the schedule for the end). Call it paranoia or simply freaking out, but I was scared and my stomach wasn't to happy with it either.

Summer is ending and I feel like I did nothing (which is quite true). But with this little mail delivery as my wake up call, I want to get my life back in order. I need to make these last nineteen days really worth-while SO HELP ME GOD!

The moment I got that schedule, I NEEDED to call one of friends. And that also gave me a really good realization that no matter what I go through, I know that as long as my friends are with me, I'll make it through. The journey ahead is hard, confusing and pretty damn scary! And it's coming at us pretty fast whether we like it or not. So I'm just going to keep my friends close and hit the road, because that is the only way anything can be achieved.

It's time to set priorities, to set goals and to set life back in place. It's time to take on what's coming without having the slightest idea of what it is. It's time to make this time really count.

Blue and Green

The lighting was nice, the weather was pretty; I was wearing a necklace set, two rings and I was in the mood for a picture :)

And this time, she hoped it would be different.. [ 2 ]

[Part 1 Here]

Part 2

It's all lies really. They don't mean any of it all. Sweet talk, yup, that's all it is. Truth is, when you really need someone, when you need a shoulder to cry on or even when you just need some nice one comes to you.

They say they'll be there when you need them, but they're not, not when it really matters. But how would they know? They aren't telepathic.


Every step she took on the path seemed light and gently. The rain drizzling all over her face. It was nice, she liked it, but she was outraged inside. She always had a thing for the gloomy weather. It was mysterious and kept her thoughts concealed. Her black backpack bounced on her back as she stepped into another puddle on the gray sidewalk. Who am I to trust now? It's not like I can tell everyone..besides, who would I tell? HIM? Or the friends who wouldn't even return my call?

What she was afraid of was now her living reality.

Life and Death..The Art of Nature

Nature (a flower in specific) is beautiful..alive or dead.
It's wonders and beauty intrigues me day by day... it's gorgeous even in its death.

Life is Sad..


At times it seems like everything is just against you. Nothing is in your favour and you feel like a complete failure unable to achieve anything.

Not only that, but you keep hitting road blocks, and if not that, then well.. let's just say your faced with situations which make you a not-so-happy-camper. Where's that good luck charm when you need it ?

A friend once said to me, "Life is sad when you make it sad." Which is true..but sometimes things are just meant to go wrong and make life sad--make you miserable. And it could be anything, from work to school, to family, to friends! All at once.
But I guess we need those sad moments in life so that we can really appreciate those good times that we also have.

And even those upsetting times are valuable because we can learn from our mistakes. Just today me and two of friends were downtown..searching hospital to hospital for a volunteer opportunity. All had the same response: "sorry, it's too late..maybe next summer" ...bummer eh? Try having that said to you several times while having to walk in the boiling heat.
But, in the end, all three of us learned that from now on, no more wasting time. And we actually managed our time and found some other places to volunteer. So it was quite productive, not to mention fun! :)

So in summary.. life is sad.. at times. But those sad times are completely vital in our lives, because they are what help us to realize what and how to prioritize our life and make us matter what it is that we do.

"Pray. Before Prayers Are Said for You..."


Sometimes we need a reality check..a sort of realization to get us back on get us focused again. THIS VIDEO (a-must-watch! You'll need to have facebook) just makes you realize that even some of our small daily habits are ones we just might end up regretting..once we are no more..

As being a Muslim (Alhumdulillah).. prayers are a must. And we never know when our lives will be taken away from us. many times have you heard that? How many times have you said that yourself? But the real question is.. how many times did you actually take that seriously?

I'm going to be completely honesty, I've heard and said that phase many times.. but then I find myself wandering off from that concept. I find myself living by putting things off until tomorrow (not in the case of prayers however, Thank God).
"Cleaning up the closet, the dresser ...I'll do it later.. I've got all summer!" By the reality is, life is NOT under our control. No matter how much we deny it, we know it isn't.

And so, to all my Muslim sisters and brothers.. please..the worldly tasks can wait, do nothing that will interrupt your prayers. And to those who already do not ignore namaz, MashAllah.. keep it up!

..because you never know what the next moment beholds..

May Allah (SWT) be with and guide us all. Ameen.

Memories.. oh so many memories!

With each day going by and each moment being passed.. a new memory is gained and cherished.

No matter what they are or of whom they involve.. they're the things we treasure.

And once something is so near and dear to our hearts, it's only human to miss it.. because those memories, those moments, they became a habit, they become a routine, they become embedded in our hearts.
..And that's when we realize how incomplete we are without them .

So summer's here! The fun has began.. and everyone's at it with their busy lives. You promise to keep in touch.. but having no idea of how often that will be. You promise things will not change but there is no guarantee. So we live and pass our days feeding off those memories we've saved. And then.. we miss them.

"Memories are always pleasant. No matter how far away from each other we are. The way I miss you will never change"

...THAT quote is the inspiration for this post (found on the top right picture.. a pencil case I received from a relative while in Karachi few years back).

The End. Now What?

I literally have just finished my final exam. Physics.
Next week, we get our marks and that's it. We're done. Grade 11 over.

I can not even begin to say how fast this year flew by. It feels like just yesterday when Ramadan began and school stress rushed in. And now, in about two months, Ramadan will be back (InshaAllah) and so will a another school year. Our FINAL school year. ..scary.

This year, as a friend of mine so perfectly stated, was "a year of firsts". So much has happened, so many changes and a lot of things which I didn't even expect, let alone dream of. And let's leave it to that.

But, it was worth it.

Every single moment of it. Because when I look back now and see where I am and who's around me, it would never be this way otherwise.

Sure a lot (of fun, weird, crazy, stupid, scary, sad drama) happens, but in the end, it leads to where we are now, and that's where I want to be.

School, academically was okay too. But scary, that next year will be the final year of high school. Time is just going too fast for our own good. Exams are done though, and now summer is here.

That's a good thing. But what to do now? I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm going to (and am kinda already am) miss school.
No, not the homework part of it, but just being with Friends.. those were/are priceless moments.

InshaAllah we'll continue to have more of those. And the last final year will be great, memorable and successful.

As for now. Summer's HERE! School's OUT!! A whole two months of nothingness! To everyone who reads this, have a FABULOUS SUMMER! Get lots of rest, and enjoy to the fullest. Make the most of the time you have with family and friends.

To those who know me and reading this.. this year was a crazy year. School and social wise (haha ;) ) and now that summer's here, I don't know who often we'll meet (but it should be often!) .. I'm gunna miss you!!! Keep In touch everyone! :) xo

Okay.. time to have some fun :) Adios!

Sunday Night - Nearly 10pm.

Major summative (Computer Science - Programming final project) due in two days.

My Progress? Haven't even BEGUN! So yes, I am doomed to the extreme. I have to get something done in two days which would normally take me two weeks, so HELP ME GOD!

So why am I blogging rather than doing my work right now (as my sister so kindly (not!) pointed out) ?

Because I'm tired, slightly stressed and about to lose my mind. I needed to rant and no friend to rant is online. Hence the blog post.

Okay my rant is completed, I shall begun my work now. Thank you very much.

And this time, she hoped it would be different [ I ]

And this time she hoped it would be different.. [Part 1]

They're all the same.
Every time.

She stood silently near her balcony railing, sipping her cup of tea. The sun would set soon. A pigeon flew past her, then another and another; all heading for their homes. I wonder if they have anything to worry about, she thought. The sun setting in the west cast a shadow of her on her balcony wall. Her long black hair gently swaying with the wind, she took another sip of her tea. The warmth from the cup heating her cold hands. Gazing at the tree-tops and watching a car, then a bus and then a van zoom by, she thought of every thing, but nothing at all. She sipped her tea again.

She feared if she got too close, she would be hurt. It would hurt. And she knew she was right.

Watching the Rain ..

As Each Drop falls.. I wait and watch .. and hope for more..

The Last Ray of Sun Shine ..

Maghrib Time (the sunset).. is one of my most favourite times of the day to capture some great shots, with all natural and beautiful lighting.
So here again, wittness the the last rays of sun shine on the Canadian National Tower, along with neighbouring sky-skrapers!

Rain Drops..

One of GOD's most beautiful creations.. Rain.


So one beautiful night, around 10:30pm ... it started to rain very heavily, and must I say, it was just gorgeous. Not to mention, I was able to capture some shots I've been dreaming about for ages.

Behold the RAIN!

And they flow and flow and flow.. unconcerned with the world, they flow on the Will of GOD and GOD alone..

Forever And Always


There's no such thing.

"I'll be with you forever."
"I'll always be there for you."

What a joke! Everyone uses those lines, including myself. Unaware and completely oblivious, we commit ourselves to things that are just not possible. Not our fault I guess, as mere mortals, we want things to last and always stay as is. No Change, no pain, no sorrow.

Until Reality hits.

Old bonds begins to break, new ones make their way. Times, places and people change. A natural part of life? I guess so. Truth is, no matter what the promises or vows, there words, forever and always, have no meaning. They're just sweet fillers to make you feel good for the moment, until everyone becomes engulfed by their own lives.

So even though saying you'll always be there forever doesn't mean anything and rationally speaking.. that's not how it works in this world. Nothing on earth is eternal. Everything and everyone eventually ends.

But I do know one thing for sure.
No matter where we are, whenever,
as long Allah keeps me living and breathing,
despite the distance,
despite the lack of communication,
despite anything,
you'll always be in my heart,
...forever and always.

... But I guess, no matter where life takes us, all of us, the time we've spent together and shared are going to be remembered and cherished forever and always too. Because friendships are really that strong! And just because life happens to be a certain, doesn't mean it's bad... it's all good. Everything happens for a good reason. We always begin friendships hoping they last forever.. so we're going to keep it that way. Doesn't matter where or when, friends and friendship sees no boundary!!

I guess I just contradicted myself.. or am I just running from the truth?

Tolerance: One of the Greatest Qualities of our Messenger (PBUH)

I never thought I could be so easily influenced by anything.

Parents. Peers. Tv. Nothing so quickly.

But yesterday, I attended a program called "Path II Piety", in our local masjid. An evening with speakers about the Islamic virtues and whatnot. There were two sessions last night and even though I enjoyed one of them more, the other one showed its effect in just a few hours.

Shaykh Sulaiman Moola, gave a lecture on "Hilm: Tolerance of the Messenger in Times of Hardship and Ease". We were given examples of how despite the worst senerio's the Prophet (PBUH) was faced with, he kept calm and a smiling face. MashAllah. So I just listened to the lecture thinking, oh yeah, wow, that's amazing.. how could anyone be so tolerant, but wow! That was it, no big deep thought to it. Then I went home.

Now when a bad situation arises, all that kept coming to my mind was Shaykh S. Moola's words written in the Hadiths (Stories about the Prophet (PBUH)). The Prophet (PBUH) was even calm with the worst of his ememies. People yelled at him, disgraced him and he never shouted back. Ever. Talk about looking for a Role Model! That's what kept me calm too, I can proudly say, despite all my sister threw at me (literally at one point!) I didn't raise my voice and I tired my best to help the situation.

"You have kill them with niceness", as a friend of mine always says.

Now you wonder about the Messenger's tolerance: Well He was the Prophet (PBUH) of course everything works out for him because he's him! But would being tolerant help us folks? The answer, through experience, is yes. Yes it does help. Usually when my sis and I ends chaoticly and both of us just yell and tell the other to shut up and we don't talk until the next day. But last night our conversation ended with a very sweet Thank You and I promise I'll try make things better (said by myself). Both of us I think were able to sleep peacefully. Thank God.

Tolerance really is a great skill to have. Just try it, and it feels so good, not to mention helps your hardship.

All I could think of was wow, how lucky was I to hear that lecture!

Oh and for more information on Path II Piety.. visit this link .

Seventeen Years Later

Here I am. Seventeen years later.

Started off smaller than a grain of sand, and now.. in the world with my own stories; my own life. I can seriously never say this enough, but TIME FLIES!

That's seventeen years of my life which I'm not getting back. Seventeen years in which I've made several grave mistakes (and learned from them), made several life-long bonds, and seen a lot in life. Happiness, sorrow, anger, jealousy, excitement and felt awfully loved.

Seventeen years gone.. or another year closer to death??
Yes, I know birthday's are supposed to be joyous right? So I won't touch that topic. Instead I'm going to talk about what a wonderful day I had.

This birthday, there were a few people who made this day more special to me than it ever was before! They made me feel like I really did mean something special! It was the most heart-felt and touching feeling ever! So to all of you, Thank you SO MUCH!! Even all the loads of wishes..thank you all.. so much!

There were actually a few people who seemed more excited about my birthday than myself! They may seem like little things to them, but honestly, they were worth so much! For example, one of my friends brought a cake to school (it was DELICIOUS!), another one sang to me (how sweet is that??), one just said some very sweet things! You see.. it's the little things that make the whole thing worth while!

So all those of you who made that day so much more special to me, I can not thank you enough! It just meant (and means) so much!!!!!!!! Thank you!

..Oh dear Life

..why make life so complicated?
It's only ours for a little while .. so make the most of it and smile!
Seriously people. Think about it.
I know we all have our bad days and good days, but you never know when this life can be snatched away from you! I know that we all somehow do land ourselves in situations which we can't control the result of. I know that things happen which we don't want. I know that we regret a lot of things we've done. But take a moment and think. Can you say for 100% that you're going to be alive in the next 15, 10 or even 2 minutes? No. You can't. I'm not saying to never feel sad and always walk around with a smile on your face! But just know that life isn't as bad as we think it is.
Think about GOD. Think about all the people God has placed in our lives to comfort us, to be there for us. Those people are there by God so that we can have support in our lives. So that suddenly this complicated mess isn't such a pain anymore. Use those people - and don't worry they'll use you when they are in need to. That's what friends are for! You help each other in good times and the bads.
And you know what's really great about friends? You can say all the random nonsense you want to them about you and your life without worrying about anything. And if you hesitate speaking to them then ya'll are not friends at all! We make friends so we aren't lonely. Our friends are like our diaries.. expect they can speak back to us with wise advice. They have the power to make us laugh, smile, cry, and get angry. They have the power to comfort us, to advice us, to protect us, to hug us and to care for us.
We are also blessed with our one-in-a-gazillion-parents, our siblings and the rest of our family too. All are there by God to lessen our burden.
And then most importantly there is GOD himself. We can turn to confide in God no matter what. Good, bad, happy, sad, whatever it is, God will not, and does not let us down.
But with all those things, you have to believe. Without faith and belief you go no where. So trust the people you are blessed with and enjoy your life please. It's precious, and so are you.
**This is for someone in particular - I really don't know what to say to you exactly.. but please, just smile. I don't think any less of you and never will. You're truely special and please don't worry about anything. This post is dedicated to you.**

Qasidah Burdah Sharif


This is one of my most favourite Nasheeds! It not only is beautiful to hear but also soothes and relaxes the mind, not to mention its splendid lyrics. My God.. they're just wonderful! I've listened to it now several times now after quite sometime.. it's amazing.

I recommend reading the translated lyrics at this link HERE while you hear it.. it's totally worth it.

Another one of my favourite renditions is by Junaid Jamshed.

And guess what else I found out? According to wikipedia , "some Muslims believe that, if recited with love and devotion, the Burda can cure diseases and purify hearts". Pretty nice eh! Such powerful words..brillant.

If you have not yet heard this Nasheed (which most people probably's quite popular)'re missing a great deal!

Grade 11 - Semester One - Over.

The End. Finito. No more!

It's here and done. Never again shall I have to suffer through this again this way. Honestly speaking, it was torture. And what for? In the end, the Subjects I focused on most left me disappointed; the ones I focused on least made me pleased. Ironic much?

First Period Photography - Strongly disliked certain parts it (the course) at first. Then I guess, I learned to love it. And I always loved photography so that made things easier. I learned a lot from that class. A LOT. Techniques about photography which will help me forever onwards. I'm able to see Photography in a new way now...with a new passion. :)

Second Period English - Don't even ask. Too much effort gone to waste.

Fourth Period French - French is fun, I love learning it. Teacher was awesome. I look forward to it next year for further improvement in my speaking of this tongue :P

Fifth Period Biology - Biology is really interesting. I'm satisfied with how I did and I gained a lot of knowledge and understanding. The Class was also fantastic, it was great. I look forward to next year Bio as well.

And that's that. Little summary of how the semester went. Well, no. This was a summary of how today's Exam Review Day went. But either way, this semester is over. The lessons learned were definitely beneficial and worth-while. Yeah it was hard to get past, but at least we're done with it.

Now, as of this Monday, February 2nd, 2009 begins Semester Two of Grade 11. Let's just hope it's less of a torture and more of a success :) InshaAllah.

Absolutely Nothing

So it's around twelve thirty in the morning. Twelve twenty a.m. to be exact.

It's a Sunday night, no school tomorrow due to exams. I should sleep so I can get up early and study for my exam the following day. Instead, I'm up here writing a complete nonsense post and listening all random bollywood songs I can think of: Hoth Rasilay, haule haule, tujh mein rab dik tha hai, dance pe chance, beegay honth tere, my dil goes hmmm.

I was in the mood for a very cheesy flick, but could not find one. Hence. I just can not wait for Tuesday, Jan/27 11 a.m. After which I will completely done and over with Semester One and would be able to relax fully.

Okay, I'm out of random things to say. Good Night :)

Quote - 04/09/08

I strive for love
I strive for care
I strive for something
that was perhaps,
never there...

So here came exam time.. and while studying for my English Exam, I came across this quote/poem-ish piece of literature I had made up on the night of Thursday, September 4th, 2008. English class seemed to like the theme of love..

MY Cake!

Yes, the day has finally arrived that I have created my very first cake - from SCRATCH!!

That's right folks... no assistance from mum what-so-ever!! Well, she had to tell me where the ingredients and equipment were located.. but apart from that I did it ALL-BY-MYSELF! :D Yes this is probably the first thing I made by myself, so yeah, I'm gunna be happy about it!

The recipe was obtained from my little cousin, Maham.. so thank you Mahamu! Too bad you're not here to taste it and tell me how it is!

It's nothing fancy, a simple plain-cake (with chocolate and few walnuts), but hey, it's a start!

Happy New Year 2009!

Here we are!! Thousand and nine! Wow! It honesty just feels like just yesterday when I took a picture and exclaimed, "here's the first picture of 2008"! And just last night (12:00am) I clicked the first picture of 2009.

The year of thousand and eight was really a productive and will always remain a memorable year. Lots happened. So many memories, so many happy moments, much bonding and also finding some really great friends. This year started off with grade ten and ended with grade eleven..these divided the year into half. I'll have to say I enjoyed and loved the first part of 2008 much more than the latter. Most of this has to do with being in grade ten and eleven, but apart from that Life was just real good! Many more memories on Facebook and MSN. Yes, that includes staying up until three, four, five and six in the morning! What great nights!
I would give highlights of this past year, but at this current moment I lack the energy; perhaps another time.

So here we are 2009! One more year gone that will never return; one more year gone that leads us closer to certain ends.. but also one more year that leads us to a another beginning. Let's forgive and forget all the sorrows while cherishing the joys and make the most of the year two thousand and nine!
Happy New Year! :)
