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.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us NIGHTTIME.full-moon-goddess

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..

Parallel universe.

Daily Prompt: The Bizarro World

In the DC comics universe, a planet called “Htrae” (“Earth” spelled backwards) is populated with bizarre versions of superheroes. A Seinfeld episode made the idea of this Bizarro World popular, where the characters encountered their opposite selves.

Craft a scene in which you meet an opposite version of yourself — or a story in a bizarre, backwards world.

Just Ten days to go until examinations start.

Tring! Tring! Alarm rings On a Sunday morning at 7.30 am. I woke up, Changed my clothes and silently tip-toed out of my room (In order not to wake my sister up), went into the common and started studying. I studied until 9.00 and prepared breakfast before my mother wakes up and has to do it for me. After breakfast, I shut myself in my room to study again. Before 8.00 at night, syllabus for the subject has been completed. And that is me in a parallel universe! 😀

Just Ten days to go until examinations start. 

Tring! Tring! Alarm rings On a Sunday morning at 7.30 am. Ughh! Alarm’s been snoozed for the thousandth time by you now Yumna!: My sister yells at me and I woke up at 9.30. I hardly studied for 20 minutes in my room officially disturbing my sister’s peace before sleeping off again. At 10.30 my sister wakes me up for breakfast and after breakfast it’s like 12.30. Then it’s facebook, wordpress and pottermore for 2-3 hours and then irresistible hunger. Oh God! Its 4.30 already! Yay! Tea time! After tea, it’s little bit of T.V  (all this time wanting to study, but not being able to, I don’t know how the time flies). After studying for a while, It’s 8.30.. T.V time and dinner. After dinner I’m too tired to study and here we go… Another day efficiently wasted before exams. And That’s me in my actual upside down life! 😀



Still Remembered!

Daily Prompt: The Transporter

Tell us about a sensation — a taste, a smell, a piece of music — that transports you back to childhood.

Everyone’s aware of the fairy tales… Cinderella, Little red riding hood, Jack and the beanstalk are all household words.. But no, they do not transport me back to my childhood. Stories which transport me back to my childhood are the one’s which might not be familiar to any of you but were, and still are, very important to me. They take me back into the time when my Maternal Grandmother was still among us, to the time when I was properly aware of the relation of a Grandmother.

Whenever we visited her, we asked to listen the same four stories and she always did tell us those! 😀 Those weren’t just stories but truly they were my childhood. Today after reading some well-known authors, I realize that no books or stories can replace those limited edition stories of my Grandmother.. 😀
