So Much Going On!

No matter how much I say to myself “I won’t let life come in between my blogging…“, but unfortunately it always does. Life does come in between, and you’re left feeling guilty and shitty that you’ve abandoned the one thing in your life that gave you absolute JOY. I miss doing this. Hitting my two index fingers on the keyboard (yeah I type like a child) and pouring my heart out. Anyway, this is a “lame-excuse post“, a post describing the things that have happened to me and my family (don’t worry it’s all good news) over the last couple of days, and how I am always NOT-HERE anymore. Let’s get started, shall we?

1. MY BROTHER GOT ENGAGED!!

YAASS! The one thing my family was anxiously waiting for finally happened! We found my Bro’s Miss Right 😀 And God, she is…. AHMAZING. I couldn’t have asked for a better sister-in-law. She is not only a talented writer (anyone who can write well is a winner in my books) but she’s also THE most compassionate person ON EARTH. She has great taste in movies, music and novels (thank God for that). And she is gorgeous. My little future nephews and nieces are gonna be soooo cute 😛 Hahaha I’m really excited for the wedding. It’s gonna happen in next year’s February most probably.

She has already become my sister/best friend in this one month, and I absolutely LOVE her. I don’t wanna get into the specifics, coz she is like a really private person when it comes to her own life, so that’s why I’m not gonna reveal too much 😀 But just know this, me and my family are the luckiest people on Earth to have her in our family. We all love ya so much Amna, you dash insaan. :3

Love Ya

2. I GOT A GREAT NEW JOB!

Alhamdulillah I got a really cool kickass new job. Well actually two. The thing is, I got a really great offer from this company called RepairDesk; it was sort of a startup that sells point of sale systems for repair shops, and they were huge overseas, especially in the UK and USA. I loved the work there, and the team was such a delight to work with.

But then I got another job offer for a Social Media position from this bigger multinational company, called Cresset Technology. CressetTech is one of the oldest and biggest digital agencies in my country. And they deal with a heck load of huge clients, mostly the biggest fashion brands of the country. So they offered me better pay and more exposure, therefore I decided to pursue that instead. So now I’m currently working there. The work is so amazing, I’m getting to learn new stuff everyday. I really do see myself building a career here. Before this I didn’t know the F of Fashion 😀 but now I’m getting the hang of it and love the work they do. I sometimes feel like Anne Hathaway from The Devil Wears Prada 😛 Yes, I’m that clueless, but it’s so much fun 😀

Clueless Me

3. I GOT A NEW PHONE!

Well, technically speaking this isn’t a part of the lame excuse 😀 I just feel like showing off :’) Actually my previous phone Motorola Moto G was acting out and had become a pain in the arse, so my Dad decided to gift me a new phone. Yes, HE IS the best Dad in the world.

I selected the LG G3. And aahhh man, it’s the best decision of my life. I actually wanted a phone that took kickass pictures and this was the best in the market within the price range. Take a look at this picture I took. It’s like top notch DSLR quality, right? *beaming with happiness*

LG G3 Camera
*heavy breathing*

4. GETTING NEW DECORATIONS FOR MY ROOM!

Well, now because I have some spare money lying around I decided to spice up my room. I won’t show it to you until it’s finished so stay tuned :3

5. Well that’s pretty much it.

Told you, it’s a lame excuse post. These aren’t reasons enough to abandon writing. I used to think that when I start with my job I’ll get the free time to write at night, but right now my body isn’t accepting this new routine. I get home by 7pm and sleep by 11. In between I try to take out time to do some reading and spend time with my family. I’ll try my best to keep up with you guys on the weekends at least. Almost everyday I experience something that I wanna write about. I note down those ideas in my post-its, but then again, I never have the time anymore to dedicate half an hour to you. That’s so pathetic on so many levels. I’ll try guys, I’ll try my best. I miss you all so much.

Papa bless. ❤

StayFocusd: An Effective App for Fighting Procrastination

Procrastination is known as the phenomenon where you forgo your responsibilities and delay your work in order to pursue pointless activities, such as:

  • Opening shitty entertainment websites where you read mind-numbing articles on celebrities who have nothing to do with your existence.
  • Taking online quizzes that tell you what kind of a person you are (like you don’t know already) and/or which Hemsworth brother you’ll get married to in your next life.
  • Scrolling through the Facebook News Feed and seeing your friends post unnecessary details of their private life, watching them bask in the glory of their “marital bliss” and then cringing at the baby pictures of their not-so-cute children (but still saying the obligatory “AAWWW” because you don’t wanna seem like an a-hole); all of which eventually makes you feel like punching someone in the schwantz.
  • Going on YouTube and seeing someone else play games for a living while you sit in front of a screen, eating ice-cream and falling deeper and deeper into the abyss of the interwebs until one day you feel dead inside.

Need Motivation to Go to Work? Follow These Steps…

I think we’d all agree that waking up and getting our arse to our job is one of the toughest things we humans have to do in this day and age. But fret not my friends, I have come across a magical therapy that’ll get you pumped up for the challenges your boring-ass job puts in your way. Yes, you will be excited about going to that thankless workplace which sometimes makes you want to kill yourself (or your co-workers and/or boss). So please, follow the given instructions carefully in order to experience your “employmental bliss”.

1. Wake up, go to the bathroom, freshen up, have a shower, get dressed, eat a healthy breakfast. After finishing your meal take out your phone, open YouTube and watch the video of “Busy Earnin'” by Jungle. (Video posted below.)

2. Carefully observe the swag and badassity these people are putting into the dance. Listen to the words of wisdom being said.

3. Get into your car (bike/rickshaw/bus or whatever mode of transport you use) and go to your workplace.

4. Once you’ve entered the office, play this exact song on loudspeaker, stand in the middle of the lobby and start imitating the dance moves you learned from the video. Don’t worry about looking like an idiot. You can also ask your co-workers to join you.

5. Remember to repeat the mantra “Too busy earnin’, I can’t get enough” out loud.

6. Please make sure that your boss sees you giving those ‘Such Swag, Much Dope Death-Stares’ (1:52 to 2:10).  Do NOT exaggerate the stare otherwise he/she might sue you for sexual harassment. If done correctly, you might get an early promotion because your boss would be so deeply intimidated by you.

7. When finished, walk calmly to your cubicle and continue your work.

Repeat this therapy at least once a week, and you’ll start seeing the difference in your performance and also in the behavior of your fellow employees and the administration towards you.


To listen to more amazing songs like Busy Earnin’ please check/purchase the album of FIFA 15. The people at EA Games know how to compile a perfect soundtrack.

“Let Her Go”

Writing 101 Day 7

Today’s Assignment: Write a post based on the contrast between two things — whether people, objects, emotions, places, or something else.

Today’s twist: write your post in the form of a dialogue. 


3am, on a rainy summer night, Abeeha walked towards her bed like a zombie – neck tilted, mouth hanging open, feet dragging and all – let herself fall on the bed and went into a deep sleep before her head even hit the pillow. Five minutes later, out of nowhere, Worky (the part of her who drives her to work hard) and Funky (the part of her that lets her have fun) appeared beside her.

Worky, always with the smug look on his face, looked down at her and frowned.

“Do we have to listen to her snore every single godforsaken night?”

“Oh come on, chill bro. She’s had a long day,” Funky replied. “And I like the way she snores. She looks so at peace, sweet child of mine.”

“She looks like a moron and sounds like a 100 year old tractor plowing a field of rocks.”

Funky chuckled and said, “You need to relax, dude. When was the last time you ever jammed to a song, eh?”

“I don’t jam. I’m with her for a purpose. She needs me because I’m the one who’s….”

Life Lessons Learned from Parks and Recreation’s Perfect Series Finale

I had imagined that when the series finale ends I will be an emotional wreck and will lock myself in my room for a week and keep on crying; crying for the loss of my on-screen family and my mentor/spirit animal Leslie Knope. Yes I cried. Very loudly and for quite a long while. But not because I lost my life’s best sitcom, but because the finale left on such high notes, teaching me and the rest of its fans some crucially important lessons about love, friendship, family, and work. Lessons about LIFE! This one will surely go down in history as one of the most perfect and “punishingly intricate” finales of all time. :’)

Parks and Recreation Family

So without further ado, here are the lessons that I learned from the perfection that this series finale was.  Continue reading
