SNAIL MAIL!

img_20160928_235654.jpgOh how I love letters and cards! There’s just something special about letters and cards personally given to you and no it doesn’t include e-cards or emails or even typed letters…..     -_- These things are best handwritten and handmade. But sadly, I have no one to share this joy with. Some people don’t understand the value of these things and those who do are either too busy or don’t wanna put in the effort. sigh. And this really                       pisses me off!

Like what the heck are you doing with your life?!

I mean forget about writing to me, why don’t you have time or why can’t you just sit down for 5 mins and write a letter? A heartfelt message or wishes for someone who does actually mean something to you…..

I’m sure we all miss the old days when we used to get so excited upon receiving little greeting cards or letters from friends who moved far away. Heck! I remember writing letters to friends living next door! I also remember how, back in Pakistan, when we were little and we would exchange Eid cards with everyone. And we would get so much joy that we’d read them again and again. And they weren’t anything super decorated or big, they used to be tiny little cards for a rupee or two                       .f21cea37ed7665f26c1d8889872b93d2

If I could, I would go back to that time and I know many would disagree and object saying there are many advancements now that have made things better for us but it’s not about that. Because no matter what I hear, I know that happiness in those times was truly something else. So much more than what we feel today. Happiness is more concerned with materialistic things now-a-days and I admit that I too wouldn’t choose to go back to the problems of the past so that’s why I want to bring the good things,thoughts,acts and hobbies from the past and instill them in our present and future.55c1205dc49c87cb61a6ff0fe0db2662

I know it’s not simple and I can’t do it on my own but I can surely play my part. And I hope that I can find someone who is willing to support me in this and in practicing  this with me………

Blogging like never before! 

A thought just occurred to me.  

Why don’t I share all the activities and arts and crafts that I’ve been doing,  here!!?  

Haha I’m so crazy! Why didn’t I think of this before? The blog has been completely out of my mind (well not truly,  I mean I remembered it but I thought of it more as in something I left or something only for writing professional things).  But not anymore!  I’m gonna blog like I’ve never blogged before. Hopefully 😀.  So get ready ya’ll…..  

For:

  •  Arts and crafts tutorials 
  • New arts and crafts projects 
  • Journaling flip through and layout tutorials 
  • Journaling and writing tips and prompts 
  • Some art pieces of mine (doodles,  sketches, paintings etc) 
  • Also a review and Journaling post about my most recent trip! (where? That’s a surprise! 😺

    She Loved Mysteries So Much That She Became One

    So there was a girl who loved mysteries. She loved reading them. She loved watching them. She loved finding them and solving them. But most of all she loved creating them. So much so, that she became one.

    In hopes of being discovered, analyzed and accepted. But most of all…clarified

    Little did she know that to get something in the world, you have to snatch it. For her mystery to be solved she had to open up, leaving clues here and there.

    So she left her traces everywhere she went…. hoping that someone would come to her rescue. That maybe one person would care enough to save her from the big dark and deep hole dug by none other than herself.

    Her heart was a secret garden and the walls were very high.

    She always had that about her, that look of otherness, of eyes that see things much too far

    and of thoughts that wander off the edge of the world.

    I prefer to remain mysterious and have people make their own judgment calls about me than to always have to EXPLAIN who I am and what I’m about.

    Ballerina,Astronaut,Firemen,movie star?? Did you ever stick to one long enough?

    In my childhood,like many kids,I wanted to become a teacher when i grew up, due to the wonderful and idealistic teachers assigned to my class. I have to admit I was very lucky in this matter.But along the way my interest in astronomy increased and the passion of becoming an Astronaut pretty soon arose.Before I knew it I became obsessed with it and enjoyed anything related to astronomy. I guess the partial credit for this obsession goes to the anime series “Sailor Moon”. Oh man, did I love those cartoons or what?! In fact I still do ^_^ Sailor Mars and sailor Saturn were my favorite just in-case you were wondering 😀 (Tell me yours, if you watched it too)

    Anyways….. The astronomy dream stayed for quiet a while, like till 10th grade, and I could have sworn that was my future career, but eventually the obsession disappeared due to the many changes in my life and I got a craze for acting (which I’m pretty good at but I never went on to pursue that career) and sometime after, the thirst for religious knowledge grew more and more inside me along with my passion for writing. I’ve always had a thing for writing and I have been writing since I was in 4th grade (I guess I should thank my reading habits for the height of imagination it enabled me to achieve).

    What this journey of mine has taught me is that you don’t know what will happen in the future, whether you’ll follow your dream and lead a great life or that great life will lead you to another dream to follow. And that dream will turn out to be the best for you, Trust me. And if you haven’t quiet found it yet then don’t worry because you never know when your mind will take a turn and lead you to something that you never knew you wanted.
