Turning 22 on 22!

22nd January, 2017

What. A. Day.

Let me confess, it was my birthday.
Yes, I turned 22 on 22 Jan, this year.
Right since the time I woke up, I filled myself with positivity and joy. I was really looking forward to this day. I don’t celebrate birthdays, but I think when the day finally comes, we all have our little box of expectations and hopes that opens up. So did mine.

I gathered quite a lot of good wishes, and they came
… from a couple of amazing people who are very close to me, people that I consider my own, and their single wish right at 00:00am makes my day;

… from colleagues whose birthday celebrations I have been arranging all throughout, and they wanted to return the gesture of making the birthday girl/boy feel special;

… from some long-lost friends who were reminded of my birthday by the Facebook reminder;

… from some kind souls that follow my work on my official Instagram account .

… from colleagues who ordered a yummm chocolate cake and some hot samosas for a group treat in this chilling winter (with occasional drizzling too!)


I must say, it was quite a mixture of emotions that were running through me. Since morning all the way till late noon, I was quite up and high, maybe because I had kept myself so occupied. But as the day was arriving to its end, I felt something was missing, something was incomplete. I think somewhere inside I even knew the reason, but din’t want to face it. Umm.. Khair.

Highlight Of The Day:Image result for kfc spicy fries

Jennifer, my sister soulmate, arranged a Cinderella-like surprise for me by coming to my place at a certain time of the evening and planning for a great time together.

She also got me KFC Spicy Fries and Tiramisu- the treat that we both used to relish together when we were working together. This surprise was all about nostalgia, and her effort, and how much I miss her presence around me.


Birthday Message:

To all you lovely people out there, I only wish the best for you. May you reach a li’l more close to your ultimate goal,
May you be blessed with more love, care and support of your near and dear ones,
May you find more people who are deserving of you,
And may your sheen continue spreading light around.
I hope you make the best of this year, and have a great time ahead.

Much Love,
-Shereen A. Mir
