The one I like is outta water!


Quoting the cool girl again...

There is a line in the quran that says, “To you, your religion, and to me mine”. And so they are letting me express myself the way I want to. People tend to think that someone who tries to be different and someone who breaks the rules are the same. I work within the rules, but I find those little loopholes that allow me to do my thing. There is this cool anime (Japenese animation) called The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya in which the entire world is made just to amuse her, the main character. Sometimes i feel the world is created just to amuse me. Because things, mashaallah always go right.
-Sophie Ashraf

I think she is super cool and was born to amuse me.

Sundays are not for traffic jams.

Shouldn't we all keep our Sundays free to lie dead on a bed of grass with the clouds-painted sky acting as roof; to spot a rare bird and wonder what its songs sound like; to close our eyes, count till five only to open them for rain and rainbow; to see how colors co-ordinate perfectly to form flowers and leaves; to let that really old banyan tree do the talking; to allow bees to bite and insects to crawl over us; to notice how the sky changes from day to night; to align ourselves to the pole star; to make our own constellation and shape our own destinies; to rename Jupiter; to discover that night has a smell; to search for grandma's twinkling eyes in twinkling stars, to understand the use of bioluminescence by fireflies; to spot a comet and make a wish; to sleep under the watchful eyes of our saintly moon before we wake up to yet another manic monday.

because Mondays, unfortunately, are for traffic jams.

This city makes you so numb. You can't tell the difference between a slap and a kiss.

On Insecurity.

You know you are insecure when you start finding faults in your shadow.


Be loud.
Be proud.
Take a walk in the clouds.

Be strong.
Go wrong.
You are a meaningful song.

Be high.
Go fly.
Weed tastes good in the sky.

Be drunk
Stay punk
Come on...get out of that trunk!

Join the club.

Who am I? Who are you?
Have you forgotten or you have no clue?

What are we? Where are we?
Are you searching hopelessly?

Well my friend, join us
you are now a part of Alcoholics Anonymous ;)
