Still searching for Secret of Success

Daily Prompt: Secret of Success

What would it take for you to consider yourself a “successful blogger”? Is that something you strive for?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us EFFORT.


It would take at least a 100 likes on post and above 100 views in a single day to consider myself a successful blogger.. but when the excitement of achieving this goal will finally subside, I guess I will need another goal and yes of course, I constantly strive for it. I try to make my posts likeable enough to like and comment. I also share my posts on facebook to get some feedback but alas! no one bothers to read my posts even then! 😦 But still, I am optimistic enough to believe I might just achieve my goal finally to strive for another one! 😀

The other side of me..

Daily Prompt: The Full Moon

When the full moon happens, you turn into a person who’s the opposite of who you normally are. Describe this new you.

I was sleeping the other day when I suddenly woke up shivering as the clock struck midnight. I was shivering very very badly and I didn’t know what was going on. As soon as the shivering stopped I didn’t wake my sister as I normally would have done and slept on! My mom woke me up at 6 o’clock and I woke up immediately. Got ready in my usual t-shirt and jeans when I was asked by my sister.. What are you doing Yumna?? when will you get ready? get changed into something suitable. I silently nodded and wore my abaya over my dress and told my sister and mom that I’ve already changed! I went to the university and sat with the rowdiest group of the class.. I don’t know what made me do so or even why they were staring at me in a weird way, but all I knew was that it’s perfectly okay to sit with them and few of my fellows, to whom I didn’t even bother to talk to, came to me asking if I had reserved seats for them. I shrugged and said No! they asked me if I was going to sit with them and after another shrug and a No! they went back muttering about me being somewhat ignorant! But, honestly I didn’t care at all! After my classes were over during which I laughed alot sitting at the back seat and  got really insulted by the teachers too, whatever! Well.. After the classes were over I stayed into the university with my friends to catch up on some work. My mom asked me when will I be back, so I lied to her that I have classes till late today. In the evening, when I reached home, I changed quickly and started studying. As soon as it was dusk, I found myself working and thought what was I doing? I hadn’t even checked Facebook or WordPress?? I stood up and immediately switched on the computer to write a prompt..

Laziness is the answer

Daily Prompt: Procrastination

What have you been putting off doing? Why?

Well… I know it is extremely monotonous but I just can’t help it. I’m putting of doing all my university work for at least a month now. Reason? At first it was Ramazan, a month of prestigious occasion for Muslims and I didn’t feel like doing work then. I strongly believe that university should have given us off. Now it’s been over a week since Ramazan ended but last week I felt pretty lazy as I was still not over my post-eid laziness. And now it’s weekend again and my homework is piled up like anything! Two days ago, my sister asked me casually that how much work do I have left and I recited a complete list of work for all the subjects I take! She had no idea it would be such a long list and was pretty much shocked by the amount of work I have to do. And look at me, I’m still delaying my work by writing posts and watching T.V.13196456-lazy-girl-falls-asleep-while-studying-surrounded-by-books

Cake Day At Karachi University

Daily Prompt: Standout

When was the last time you really stood out in a crowd? Are you comfortable in that position, or do you wish you could fade into the woodwork?

Last time I stood out in a crowd was the last time I was present in a crowd and it was not more than two days ago i.e..  on 13th August.

Actually It was the celebration of independence day in our university On 13th of august as it was to be an official off on 14Th (Independence day of Pakistan). So I decided to look into the event for a short while before going home. When I, along with a few friends of mine, reached the venue, it was nothing that I expected but it was one of the crowdiest place I’ve been to for quite some time, and so being 5’1 I wasn’t able to see the promised 500 pound cake baked in the honour of the  event. I climbed a little higher where many girls were standing but were still unable to see the cake. Me and my friend got really exhausted and finally climbed a little stone step on the base of a pole and FINALLY! I got what I wanted, I stood above most of the crowd and hopefully stood out too! Finally standing on that tiny place with my friend I enjoyed to the fullest! I just hooted and sloganeered with the rest of crowd and enjoyed a lot! And so I found an upside to my personality: I am so totally comfortable in standing out rather than just being mixed up in the crowd! =D
