Peshawar





Thick Clouds. They look so beautiful !



  Just took them moments back. And now it's raining after a long time.

 


GoodBye Long Hair






Did you ever get rid of something because you thought it was bringing you bad luck?

Today, I got rid of my long hair, because for some reason I thought it was causing me bad luck. I can be superstitious at times, and long hair bringing one bad luck was something I had on my mind for long. So bye bye goes the long hair.

Oh and a legendary superstition that I was just reminded of, by some of my friends, goes that, hair which has been cut off must be burned. It is unlucky to throw it away. It seems that it might be picked up by birds and woven into their nest. They might weave it so tightly that you will have difficulty rising on the last day. Funny ! :-)

Presentation Convent High School Peshawar





It has been ages since I've last met my old class fellows from Convent. I wonder where they would be, and how they'd be doing? I miss them all. I wonder if anyone remembers Sister Monica?

She was very loving and kind. It's sad that she passed away.


Sister Anne was a pleasant change for Convent. But she was transfered to Pindi Convent, and left Peshawar. She is one of her kind. She reminds me of "Julie Andrew's" character, "Maria" in "The sound of music". At least, that's what I have heard about her from her students. She is a very lively, into music, understanding, and intellectual lady. She would support extra curricular activities in school. A very fine lady.


She was the first Principal (sister) of the Presentation Convent School Peshawar, who would wear the local dress. I met her 7 years ago in a musical function at Convent.

Sleep well !





Hey all teenage students! Have you ever felt an unpleasant change in your behavior in school or college days, especially when your daily routine is really hectic and you don't get enough time to rest? When there is a lot of workload on you and you don't get enough time to rest, especially at night, have you experienced mood swings, fighting over trivial matters, losing temper, etc? If yes, then I will tell you what the problem actually is, and also provide you with a solution.



I have had such an experience about some 7 months back when almost one month was left to my final exam. I had to study 14 hours daily. I would wake up at 6:00 am, go to school and then reach home at about 3:00 pm. Then I would study after lunch till 11:30 pm or 12:00 am. This means, I would be awake for 18 hours and sleep for only 6 hours at night.



In those days, as my daily routine was really hectic and exhausting, I became short tempered, impatient and experienced mood swings frequently. I tried to control myself and my emotions but could not. I wanted to get rid of it but failed to do so. The reason was that my night sleep was insufficient and the solution was to sleep for at least 9 hours at night, which is sufficient for all teenage students.



If you get an average of up to 5 or 7 hours of sleep at night, you'll become cranky, short tempered, start fighting with others for no apparent reason, become fed up of almost everything and lose interest in almost everything that used to interest you. Such restlessness will not only badly affect your personality but also ruin your mental condition and make you unsuccessful in one way or the other.

It is necessary for all teenage students to sleep for the said number of hours. Only then will you be able to carry out your everyday activities in a better way and will become successful, especially in studies.

Once Upon a Medical College





The days when my brother Saleem Khan Mahsood got into a medical college in Sindh. I don't remember why we posted this on my blog, but probably because we thought girl's may have something to say about medicine. :-P

Saleem Khan


Go green






Green is the answer !

"You'll always find your way back home" --- Hannah Montana





A beautiful song from "Hannah Montana - The Movie".

Lyrics By: Martin Johnson & Taylor Swift

Whoo!

You wake up. It's raining and it's Monday.

Looks like one of those rough days. Time's UP!

You're late again so get out the door. (Get out the door).

Sometimes you feel like runnin'.

Find a whole new life and you feel like jumpin'.

Let go, get up and hit the dance floor.

When the lights go down it's the ending of the show!

And you're feeling like you got no place to go.

Don't you know?

[Chorus:]

You can change your hair,

You can change your clothes.

You can change your mind,

It's just the way it goes.

You can say goodbye and you can say hello.

But you'll always find your way back home.

You can change your style,

You can change your jeans.

You can learn to fly,

And you can chase your dreams.

You can laugh or cry,

Like everybody knows.

You'll always find your way back home.

Huh!

Your best friendsYour little hometown.

Waiting up wherever you go now. (MMM)

You know that you can't always turn around. (Turn around)

Cause this world is big and it's crazy. (It's crazy)

This girl is thinking a maybe.

This life is what some people dream about. (Dream about)

Cause when I'm feeling down and I'm feelin' all alone. (One-one)

I always got a place where I can go.

Cause I know.

[Chorus]

Yeah they know exactly who you are. (Are)

Where the real you is a superstar. (Star)

You know that it's never too far away.

You can change your hair,

You can change your clothes.

You can change your mindIt's just the way it goes.

You can say goodbye and you can say hello.

But you'll always find your way back:

You can change your hair,

You can change your clothes.

You can change your mindIt's just the way it goes.

You can say goodbye and you can say hello.

But you'll always find your way back home.

You can change your style,

You can change your jeans.

You can learn to fly,

You can chase your dreams,

You can laugh or cry.

Like everybody knows.

You'll always find your way back home.

You'll always find your way back home.

You'll always find your way back home.

You'll always find your way back home.

You'll always find your way back home.

Home. Always!

You'll always find your way.

You'll always find your way (back home) back home.
