I have a major writer's block, owing to my sleeplessness and a ridiculously busy schedule. Me having a writer's block means you have to bear with my pointless randomness once again. I promise to keep it from getting nuttier in future!
I came across this photo on deviantart and instantly felt connected to it. It reminds me of life and people and our journey together. Each one of us traveling together but to different destinations. I like to think of this life as a wonderful journey where we have wisdom of the past, moment of present and thrill of the future. Journeys are beautiful, you get to meet strangers. You get to learn from everyone, you just need to have an eye for it. One thing each stranger can teach you is how all of us are connected on the same level.
I never imagined how wonderful I'd feel wearing the graduation robe till the day came when I finally wore it. It was indeed a big day. I was content that all my hard work for so many years had finally paid off. The only bad part on that lovely day was that parents weren't invited. I know that comes by as a big bummer but that's the way it was. I missed 'em so much, imagining seeing pride on their faces every minute the ceremony lasted.
I fondly remember my school life, my first ABC book that I still have possession of (surprised?), my play group days, then nursery, my first grade teacher who pampered me, the third grade teacher who was so scary; the list goes on. After years of hard work, I made it to the place where there was this one seat that was meant for me and me alone. It was the place I had made for myself in a batch of over a hundred, I was amongst the top three.
You know the best moment of that entire day? It was seeing the look on my mama's face when she saw me in that prestigious black robe and with my graduation certificate. She hugged me tight and told me she was proud of me.
Hope you have a great weekend ahead! *smiles*
I strongly feel each one of has two sides to us. One that the world sees and one who we are in the dark. Okay, with some exceptions of course. You may take it offensively, accept my apologies if you do so, but think about it. Are we R.E.A.L.L.Y. ourselves in front of others? Completely?
I kept myself away from the flashy glamy side of Lahore. I found it all too artificial and it always made me restless. Right now, my most important need is to find myself again.
