Sitting in the dark.

From time to time power use to go out in our flat in Karachi. Temperatures use to spike upto 55-60C which is pretty hot. I use to sit out on the terrace of my apartment and gaze at the stars. Either that, or just sit outside and enjoy the breeze. Once you’re out there your mind likes to wander to different directions. You think about life. Even when i was 15 i use to think about life because in Pakistan thats considered an adult.

what if things were different than how they are now. Im getting tired of power going out everynight. What is the life like on the other side of this ocean. Where is that plane going to. The emotions of people on that plane are so different. Everyone is looking forward to doing something. Everyone is constantly moving around seeking something. What will be my life like 10 years from now”

its been 10 years.

Tonight i opened my door and i saw it snowing. As soon as i started to stare at the snow falling down it took me back to the memory in pakistan. Its like nabeel you wished for this day and here you are now. Ten years after you are finally away from what you didnt like. Its good.


Don’t give up on something you love doing. 

Even with all the stress around me of school work load I decided to take this course to remind me who I am as a person. 

I see people get lost in their world so much that they forget where they came from. They forget about stuff they loved doing. This is my passion and I will continue to draw and continue to get better with time. 

Maybe have my own art show someday haha if I ever get that good ya know? Enjoy my Indian ink drawing and pencil sketches. 

They’ll come back. 

Make sure your intentions are pure with whatever you do. Make sure that when you go to bed tonight you’re going to bed with a clear head. People don’t last in your life. They drift away, they move on, some move to a different state, city or even country. Worst part is if they’re not really really close to you, they won’t even say goodbye. And you’ll find out from Facebook. It sucks doesn’t it? Think about it. That’s life though. 

But sometimes they decide to come back to your life because of whatever reason 

Recently a certain somebody decided that they wanted to be cool with me all of a sudden. If you’re the type of person that hold grudges then maybe this will be a little tough for you but still try; try to let go of the past even if it was couple days ago. Try to get over it mentally. Emotionally it’s hard to let go of things. TRUST ME I KNOW. 

Being an emotional wreck isn’t fun but there is a light at the end of every tunnel. So if someone decides to come back to your life and make peace to you; you smile let them back into your life. Here’s the thing, they don’t have to be close to you; they don’t even have to be anywhere near you ever but breaking the ice will bring peace to your mind and heart. Something’s you don’t let go though. Which is okay. Sometimes you don’t give people chances, you don’t let people near you because you’re afraid that they’ll hurt you again etc. so you be the judge of that. 


For most of you that already know that I am in College studying IST. Im learning how to code right now with two languages (Java and Python). Around next semester or possibly sooner I plan on starting to work on my own application. My question to you guys is what are some of the apps that you wish existed. It seems like everything is out there already. I have a couple of ideas of my own but Im trying to pick peoples brain here. So if you take a minute to write about what your thoughts are I would really appreciate it. Even if its just a game or something ‘stupid’ tell me about it. All comments are highly appreciated. Thankyou!


On the train to Philadelphia

With all this pressure of studies and work load it’s been tough for me to blog lately. It doesn’t mean that I came here for a couple months and I stopped blogging. No, it’s just I’m occupied with a lot of things in life (mainly school). I’m an IST major at Temple University; since I changed my major you can say that it’s my first semester as the new major. It’s awesome I love it but it requires time and sitting down while figuring out coding.

Since I commute every day for an hour I think I know when I should be posting my blogs and hopefully I don’t slack off because train rides are boring and you get sleepy. There’s only 24 hours in a day so I’m constantly trying to figure out how can I make my time most productive without killing myself. Here are a couple things that keeps me going. 

1) have a schedule. 

Having a set schedule is awesome but getting to that set schedule is the tough part. I’m still making changes to my lifestyle but it’s looking promising 

2)nap when you can 

My naps are crazy long. I’ve been trying to not sleep for more than an hour now because then it affects my sleep at night. 

3)eat healthy and exercise 

This is a new one for me but it’s coming along pretty good. I recently started going to the gym and this time I won’t give up until I have the body that I want. 

4) if you’re bored, study. 

There’s always a possibility to get some studying done. Don’t ever think I don’t have anything to do. There’s always something to do and learn. It’s a tough one I know but still; learn. 

5) enjoy your school.

Looking back at my school life I wish I enjoyed more of my time. So in the coming left semester I’ll change that and go out often in my free time and make new memories.

These were pretty basic 5 college things that makes my day go by a little better. Of course you have to throw league of legends in there late at night but then it messes with your sleep (once in a while isn’t that bad). 

Have a wonderful day! 

My get away

What do you do in your free time? Like something for yourself. All I need is some charcoal and a paper when I’m feeling down or lonely and I’m good. Putting my feelings onto paper is what I’m good at. Turning emotions into words through blogs is what I do; turning emotions into pictures Is my passion. Taking pictures of stuff that reminds you of something is what I do. 

That’s my get away from reality. 

What’s yours? 

You make me feel alive again.

How many of you use tinder? Probably alot of you; or even if you know of it. Well I met this individual through something similar to tinder and we started talking. Im mean making new friends all the time is my thing. So we start talking; its been about a week now I’ve been talking to her. And what I came to realize that I pick my phone up only to check if she messaged me. Its too early for all that right? I dont know how to express that feeling; whatever it is, I like it. She makes me feel happy again. I dont have to force a conversation to talk to her. Everything comes natural. The only downfall of this whole situation is that she lives fairly far away . 3000 miles far away. how do you guys feel about long distance relationships if this were to go down that road? Im the type of person who likes to spend time with the special individual and I want to be around them. This is the first time something like this is happening to me. Have I talked to her about it? no. Because its too early for anything plus I like how things are. She texts me 24/7, she facetimes me twice in a day to see how am i doing. Its nice.

Its one of those things that you feel like are good but at the same time you’re thinking to yourself nabeel what is it that you’re getting yourself into. Again, its too early for anything but to people who ready this take a minute out and tell me how do you feel about long distance relationships? have you ever had one? would you ever consider one? I seriously want to know. Thankyou 🙂

It’s almost that time 

Work where you don’t feel like you’re working

Well that’s what people say. But I look forward to it being 9pm so my store closes and I don’t have to deal with customers.
