5 things I learned for which I am thankful

Standard

5  new things I learned/accomplished in the past 3 months for which I am thankful

1) As I have always been busy in my studies, I never used to get time to learn cooking. Nor did I ever bothered trying myself. However this time when I came home and was completely free from studies my mom asked me to learn a few dishes. So, in the past month I have learned making Kaal Masur di Daal ( Black Gram), Moong Masur di Daal (Yellow Gram) and Bhindi (Lady Finger). I am Thankful that at least I learnt a few dishes.

2) Second thing I am thankful of is that the burden of certification is over (for now at least). It was really difficult to prepare myself and read the six volumes of book and retain so much of the material.  As it was my senior year at the university, there were a lot of events and parties and it was hard to study when all my friends were enjoining. So, I am glad that it’s done but I do hope that I pass.

3) Third thing that I learned last month was cycling. As a kid I remember riding a three wheeler but I never learned a bicycle.

4) This Eid, I applied Mehndi/Henna to people at a parlour and earned a good amount out of which I gave a proportion to charity. This was the first time, I donated and I felt really happy. I hope to continue working for social cause in the future as well.

5) I found out one of my closest friend on a social networking site and it was great talking to her after 5 complete years. After high school, she was out of touch with all the classmates, however it was truly a joy re-connecting with her.

Welcoming 2017

Standard

So I am writing this blog post after four months and 8 days to be exact.
2016 was a fine year except when I look around me and watch the news channel, there was so much trauma happening which I really hope would reduce in this new year. I pray that my Syrian brothers find solace and those seeking refuge in other countries become successful. There were so many air crashes this year with the recent being the the PIA accident and the one in Russia, I pray that may God give the families of these victims patience to bear the loss and I hope that no one dies such an unexpected death. I also pray for all those students studying to pass out with flying colors and make their parents proud. May God bless everyone with good health and guide all of us to follow the good deeds. May the suffering in this world end and everyone gets prosperity.
I welcome 2017 with a beacon of light and lots of hopes.
Wishing all my readers a very happy New Year!!!

Cheers,
Mehak

Numbers

Standard

This week’s topic for the weekly photo challenge by “The Daily Post” is “numbers”.

This is something that most college students have dreaded and since I am procrastinating studying it, I thought it would be the right picture for this weeks topic. It shows the algebra problem to solve.

I hope this will serve as a reminder for people procrastinating like me to start preparing for Gmat if they are to give now.
