November... Already?!

It baffles, flabbergasts, confuses and leaves me utterly dumbfounded that 2014 is only 2 months away. Where did this year go? Why on EARTH did I not do ANYTHING productive? Have I gained anything this year? Apart from weight of course. 

In all seriousness though, I haven't achieved anything this year. I remember telling myself, right after the New Years celebrations, that I need to pull myself together and that I need to find myself a new hobby which will benefit me. Yet here I am, with an account on twitter, instagram, tumblr, facebook and God knows what else. All these websites are like black holes. Once you're in, you CANNOT find a way out, no? Well it's definitely the case for me. You just seem to get more and more involved as the days go by, which can actually be very infuriating.


My point, however, is that I want to find myself doing something beneficial, but fun, in 2014. Something that will keep me busy. Something that will lead me into living a pleasurable, healthy lifestyle. That's obviously never going to happen. But who knows, maybe, just maybe, I'll find myself an awesome new hobby. (pssht yeah right)

ADIOS SEPTEMBER

The first month of school, September, is just about over. Just about 53489534 more months to go. Okay, slight exaggeration.

The first month back at school always goes smoothly. Everybody is on their best behavior, they stick to their revision guides, and do all their homework, smartly dressed, with a great attitude towards learning, no? Well, that is definitely the case for me.

In the previous summer holidays, I had made my mind up that I was finally going to put my head down and revise everyday after school for about 10 hours (exaggerating again, chill yo beans) to get some good GCSE grades so I could get into a good college, as everybody would want. With that idea in mind, I signed myself up for some clubs and an extra after school GCSE, which I told myself would be a great idea. wow Bisma, way to go.

It's not that I'm not pleased with all my extra curricular activities, because obviously I am, why else would I have signed up for them? I don't know how I'm saying this, but these activities make school a hell of a lot more fun to go to as they're new things, not just the same old boring geographical maps, or the Shakespeare quotes or the algebraic equations, but something NEWSo I'm glad that I signed up for them.

I still have about 2 years till high school is over. Somebody once told me that the years spent in high school will be the best years in life. Really? Is that true? Because so far they have been terrible. Is this quote trying to tell me that life has a lot more to throw at me, because if that's the case then congratulations you just made me cry.

Burka Avenger - Review

Burka Avenger. Does it ring a bell. No? Well, here's the trailer. So watch it: Burka Avenger Trailer

Burka Avenger is the first type of Pakistani super-hero animated TV series. The show is aimed at the younger audience, and has been created to teach kids about the importance of things such as education, morals, friendship etc.


The Burka Avenger, herself, is a "mild mannered" school teacher who fights for peace and justice, as all superheroes obviously do. What's significant about this superhero is that unlike other female superheroes, such as cat woman, she is fully covered up. The only thing that she is admired for, is her kind acts to the community. 


What I particularly liked about the trailer is that the man who stole the right to the children's education by shutting the school down, was shown as the villain. Which shows that education is important, and not having an education is bad.


Having the Burka Avenger as a superhero portrays many positive images to the viewers, such as:

1) The fact that she is a teacher who fights for justice using just pens, books and other sorts of stationery, which conveys a positive message about education. It shows that education is important.
2) She is fully covered, which shows that she's looked up to for her great acts of kindness towards the society, and not what she appears to be on the outside.
3) Having a lady in the Burqa as a superhero conveys a positive message about Islam and the whole idea of "Burqa's" as there has been a lot of controversy and discrimination towards them till this day.
4) It portrays women in a strong way, it implies that women can also be strong, even if they are from a "religious" background.

I know that this isn't what I usually post, but I felt that the show itself deserved some recognition and appreciation.

I'm Sad.

I'm Sad. oh my god, Bisma, nobody cares. Why am I sad, you ask? It's Because the summer holidays are coming to an end. Hang on, let me just jump off a cliff. 

I'm so annoyed, agitated, disgruntled, discontented, angered, exasperated, vexed (I may have used a thesaurus for this part). It's not because I don't want to go back to school, though that is a point, but it's because I'm annoyed with myself at the fact that I haven't done anything productive. Nothing. Zilch. Isn't that how it always goes though? We tell ourselves that we'll do this, and that, and everything, but when the time comes, we just can't be bothered. 


The thought of going back to school makes me feel uneasy. I'm obviously not the only one, but I really don't want to go back to school. It's not just about the work, it's about the environment, it's as if I go to school to get experience on a prisoners life. 


Okay, I should be grateful that I get an education, that the teachers are qualified, that our environment is safe and we have all the facilities, but sometimes what matters most is how we feel, emotionally. We get told to be free, to express ourselves, yet we have a strict uniform and behavior policy, so technically, we're not free to be ourselves.

School takes this wonderful concept of learning and discovering new things and just completely ruins it with the tense atmosphere of judgement and strict deadlines and basing your intelligence on a letter which you could easily copy off google.


 I guess that's just how high school really is. It makes me want to dip my fingers in chilly powder and rub my eyes. 


This is me crying. Feeling sorry for myself. 
Oh, and don't you think I'm amazing at making
these pictures. PLEASE, TELL ME I'M AMAZING.

The Introduction

HEY GUYS! Oh my God, my first post. Okay, Bisma, calm down. This is the hard part, you know, actually introducing myself. I don't even have an audience as I've just started blogging. AWKWAAAARD. I'm not going to lie and tell you that writing is my passion, because it most certainly isn't. However, I do enjoy writing. I've been told I'm good by some, but I've been told I'm crap by others (harsh, I know)

A bit about myself, no? I honestly don't know how to describe myself. Others would describe me as a really happy person, someone who is all flowers and rainbows and bunnies descending from the bright blue sky. I somewhat agree. However, on rare occasions I can be the opposite, which isn't very nice. Okay I'll shut up about me.


Moving on. More about my blog. Why did I make a blog, you ask? Well I don't know either. I guess I just have a lot of feelings that need expressing, okay? Jokes aside, I really don't know. I'll just be posting random things in the hope that someone will read and take inspiration, ha.


I honestly don't mind if nobody reads my blog though, because writing and reading back what I wrote brings me nothing but sheer pleasure. I don't usually write, but when I do, I get carried away. Like right now.


I don't have much to say. Holidays kill my creativity. Okay bye.



This is me excited about my first blog post 


(OMG SO COLOURFUL)
