Glad Tidings

Journal Entry: Thu Sep 15, 2011, 4:06 AM


How have you been? Does it rain much where you live? There was a storm in my city, yesterday. The thunder shook me a little and I watched the rain splatter against the windows of a lonely lounge artfully. I have begun writing my diary again. No more being lazy for me! The seasons are quietly changing and I think it is time for a little chill. Some cold breeze? Yes. There is some good news from my side. And after I am done telling you, I hope to hear something nice from your side of the world, too.

I have been enrolled into a university. I got accepted for civil engineering. I have been elated and even more, since the announcement. It is going to be my freshman year at the university. It makes me a little nervous. But all is good. All is good. Also, I have been able to get my hands on my new tool. Yes, I am the now the proud owner of a dslr camera. :blush: I am just overwhelmed, I guess.

Some features to lighten up the mood, even more!

The transition is inevitable,
unavoidable- change is
a painful process. It rips,
sears right through all that you try
to hold close. But once
there is healing and you
open your eyes-
only then will you know
how beautiful it actually is
out there.
Love is like laughter by Valcom2the Raindrop Bokeh by alban-expressed SubductionWe drip into October
with the silence of spiders
heavy in our chests,
our hearts curling in
on themselves like
leaves in autumn.
Lungs unfurl into the
stillness;
there is a breath, a whisper--
This dying wind whistles
through empty throats,
as if to murmur a warning,
perhaps, that we threaten
to become
earthquakes
along our hipbones.

A few things I thought I would put up here.
i.Be there and there will be for you.
ii.Board games are fun. Siblings, even more.
iii.Cycle till you feel the wind. Breathe.

Congratulations on being accepted! That's great! :D

September is beautiful in Denver. It's finally cooled down a bit from the hot summer, so now there are just comfortably warm, sunny days.

So good to hear from you.

I can actually imagine how lovely it must be. The temperature steadily falling and the winds starting to pick up. I hope a beautiful time comes you way.

Peace be with you. And Keep me posted. Please.

Thank you for you kindest comment. It really made me smile and happy. It is good to hear from you.

Yes. I got a dslr. It is quite crazy. Anyway, it is Nikon D3100. I figured and thought that this is it. This is what I want. And have been elated ever since.

It's raining pretty good here. Karachi me flood phir se. It is so sad. I really wish people don't have to relive all that again which they did, last year. Anyway, I pray for the best.

Thank you. I am reading its user manual currently. learning all about its buttons. And inshaAllah, I shall be on the road again, clicking and going crazy.

It rains a fair bit in Britain. Usually it rains just when you least want it to. :P

Do you (try to) write in your diary every day? I tried to keep a diary once but I didn't like it. I felt I was ruining my notebook unnecessarily (I love notebooks and have loads of them, but now I never write in them because they're too pretty!). :lol:

Oh, congratulations! When do you start? :la:

Ooh, a DSLR?! I am so jealous! I assume the pictures you've uploaded (which I have yet to look at) were taken using that camera?

Once again, thank you so much for featuring my poem. There are some really beautiful pieces here!

:heart:

I used to write my diary everyday. Then I grew up and I write diary about something that strikes me during the day. Like a smile. Or a joke someone made. Or a friend I met. Or some inspiration I felt. I keep it short but I keep it worth the read. Usually when I read old entries I laugh and think, Man! I was so stupid. But that is life. You learn, you fall and you get up and cheer. :w00t: Never give up.

I have an obsession with books. Notepads. Pages. Paper. When I look at them I go :w00h00:...almost high. Because plain and blank pages look very inviting to me. The things we can do with just paper!

Yes. Yes. Yes. :party: A dslr. *wiping happy tears* My grandfather gifted it to me. And you assumed correct. Smart girl. :heart:

Thank you for being a part, a glorious part of my life.

Aww, that's lovely! Yeah, I once read back over a short diary I attempted to keep when I was around fourteen. The stuff I worried about back then was silly!

ME TOO! :highfive: Although I think my obsession is slightly different, because I don't actually write in them (or not usually, anyway)... I just like to look at them looking pretty on my shelf. :lol: The really nice ones I tell myself I'll fill up with memories, once I've finished the current memory book I'm on. (It's sort of like a diary, I suppose, but I stick significant things in it, like tickets from places I've visited, and write about my experiences.)

What a lovely gift indeed! :love:

Thank you for being the same. :tighthug: :heart:

Makes you LAUGH, doesn't it. We all have been young and carefree and a little silly. It's alright. :heart:

You know, I also have started saving my notepads and copies. They look so pretty, blank and untouched. After saving loads, I am forcing myself to NOT BUY ANYMORE and use what i have. I can't believe what you just said. I have a copy which I thought I would fill it with memories of my yester years. The good times. Whoa, we have quite some common thoughts and ideas. Like like like. :tighthug: Okay, this is creepy but amazing too. I save things like tickets and post cards and pages which have some significvant memory on them or are worth saving. I dooo.

:heart:
Hope you are well.

True!

Haha, I still can't resist buying them, especially if they're on sale or something. :lol:

Really?! We must be mind twins. :giggle: I think I prefer it to keeping a 'proper' diary because the entries are shorter, and I like sticking things in my book.

:heart: I am, thank you. I hope you are too. :sun:
