Sometimes a dream is just within your reach.

I have this weird far fetched dream, and somehow that dream these days seems a little more realistic. And one day i pray to my Allah to make into a beautiful reality (Insha Allah).
At this point i am sure one would start wondering what is this dream this girl speaks of?
It is my dream of attending this university that makes me at time wish to just fast forward my life only to see if  i will ever reach my destination.
I have never truly felt i belong somewhere, not at my old school, certainly not at my new college, but i have this gut feeling that: Yes! that's the place, that is somewhere i might have a chance.
And that college is really  far away from my home, family and the people who i love.  If i head out to that college one day i will be leaving behind a huge part of myself.
Right now i am getting all emotional and sentimental about it,  i sort of feel homesick even though i haven't even been there ever..
                                                “We are homesick most for the places we have never known.” 
                                                                                  ― Carson McCullers
Here's a picture of the college i dream  about some of you  might recognize it.

Pre Fathers' Day Dilemma.

Well fathers' day is approaching (Hint: it's on the 16th of this month) and i have no idea what to get my father. My father is not the outdoor type, or the book type or a movie type or a cake lover. My father doesn't enjoy cake specially chocolate cake, he only like coffee cake form The Bombay Bakery which i might add is in Hyderabad not in Karachi and it will be sort of impossible to get that cake. Okay not impossible but hard. I mean it is so easy to shop for my mother, some clothes, a watch, chocolate cake etc but i have no clue what to get Papa!
What plans do you guys have for your father? Maybe i can copy that.. I can always give him an handmade card which he absolutely loves as they are made by his extremely talented daughter..

I come bearing news.

I come bearing news. Happy news, sad news, news news.
For over a year i was MIA from here and in that amount of time life has taken so many twists and turns that even though we are those same people we were last year, our lifes are perhaps not the same anymore or maybe they are, what do i know?
This year i graduated from school *Yay!*
Graduating from my school it was such an emotional roller coaster, one minute you are really happy on top of the world, leaving a place you wanted to escape for a long time. But as you say goodbye one last time it's like you are leaving a piece of yourself there which no matter how hard you try you can't get back. And when you are going to colleges for admissions and you compare all of them with your school, they seem dull and way too tiny. You feel claustrophobic there and you just want to go back to your old school and sit in your favourite corner.
I leave St. Joseph's Convent as a proud Josephian, what ever i am, where ever i am it is because of my school and despite my complaints i will miss it.
On other notes:
For the first time i saw justice being served in this country, the rich were helpless for the very first time and the victims got their justice. I am sure you all must have heard about the Shazaib Khan case by now. The two murderers got proven guilty despite their efforts of bribing everyone and they today they got their verdict i.e sentence to death, in my personal opinion their punishment is full on accurate. They destroyed a family, killed an innocent for a very ****** reason. They deserve it and their punishment will set all those rich spoilt brats with guns in line as for they will not even consider committing such an act!

As my last post was about Malala praying for her health, i am extremely happy that our brave girl has fully recovered and continuing her studies and making a difference.
