I’m not dead, ffs

My humor is, like, really ace.

For those who have been speculating that I have expired, I would like to hop out of my dorm-grave and prove them wrong. I am not dead and no, I have not tied the knot (yet). In fact I have other important things to do. For instance: Passing my final exams, winning the parliamentary debate championship, coming up with new ideas for my editor and composing several reviews on some very impressive reads. For near and dear ones: It’s great news that I aced the debating competition and won the Best Speaker Parliamentary Debate Championship trophy. My yapping skills paid off. And the trophy is like, propa big-ass.

Also, the heat in Lahore is terrible. And I made the horrendous mistake of drinking gallons and gallons of cold chocolate milk, thinking this is going to “cool me down” but nooo, it got worse. Nosebleeds followed with massive headaches and cranky mood swings. So the next time your girlfriend tries cajoling you into making chocolate milk for her, you better tell the bitch to calm down and make YOU a sandwich. (Passionate advocate of female-lead anti-feminism acts, I am.)

I haven’t been updating the blog for quite a while maybe because I’m out of ideas to write about. There are many things I would like to jot down and rant about but, then, most of my readers have done their fair share of research on them. For instance, writing about the post-traumatic stress journalists suffer while reporting in war-torn countries. Or about the shooting of a young teenage homosexual at school. As a student of mass communication and journalism, I have often found myself explaining the intimidating challenges most journalists suffer. It isn’t an easy job. Even small-scale event coverage by internees like yours truly can be tough. Punctuality, precision and a strong flow of creativity is constantly required. If you’re out of ideas, you’re out of the game.

I will be reviewing a few books that I have had the chance of reading these days. Expect to go through a review on Bapsi Sidhwa’s “The Crow Eaters”, scandals noted by Capitol Hill and some very, very disturbing chapters on existing cults. (Psychos, I tell you. Propa psychos).

    Well this is finally a break from your last two posts which were quite serious. This is the first time I’ve come across your blog and its very impressive. Its wonderful to see how the youth of Pakistan are reacting to the various events happening there. Here in India, we often get a very biased picture.
    Its funny, but its interesting to see that it is mostly students of Mass Communication who raise these issues. Maybe I’m wrong. And yes,I’m a student of Mass Communication too, and I’ll have to intern from this year. Tell me, what is the experience like?

    i was jus lookin’ fer some other mehreen ali / mehreen arshad to start with some business but i think its not you, i’m not really sure, she’s a writer….however, looking at your blog i’m kinda impressed and wants to offer you a job, i’ve recently started a firm based in lahore and i’m looking forward to expand it throughout the asia with the passage of time, anyway, the job i’m offering you could be an opportunity to work-at-home or there could be a better opportunity to work in our office. the job would be as simple as writing us some content or simply proof reading others work.

    I’ve provided you my email above, i’d be looking forward for a positive response.

    thanks & regards,
