My birthday!

So, new day new story! 

Yeah, today was a good day overall. In school and later too. It was my birthday, so everyone in the class congratulated me. It felt really good. Later I met my mom in a cafe where we had a glass of coffee and talked with each other for a while. As last year, she had many gifts for me this year too. But soon it got a  bit uncomfortable when we started talking about the last year. It wasn’t really easy to discuss how the last year was,  and what I have accomplished so far. After our short discussion I was allowed to take the train back home. She was standing there staring at me until the train drove away and I couldn’t see her anymore. 

Yeah that’s how my birthday was. I am home now all alone, reading a French book & trying to find out what some difficult words mean. I think I will continue doing it… I wish you guys a nice evening. See you all soon. 🙂

My daily life… 

Hello dear friends, 

I am back & thought I would take everyday some time to share with you guys how my day was. 

Yeah, right it was Monday & I had school again. The start of the day was not really good. I always take a train from my house to school, in between I have to change once. Today the trains were late because of a technical issue somewhere,  that means I was late for school. Luckily I have some friends who were there already. I wrote one of them to tell our teacher that I will be late for the lesson. And as far as I noticed he did it… So no big deal. 🙂 

I’m in a translation & interpretation school where people learn how to translate from languages like French, English, Spanish, Russian and Chinese into German. I am leaning French and English to be an interpretator in the future. I really like the environment in the school & how nice my teachers are. Today I had English vocabulary lesson where I learned how to solve some anagrams & learned a lot of new vocabulary. Later on I had a German class where I wrote a short test. It wasn’t difficult so I had a good feeling after I have done it. 

Right, that was a bit about the lessons… Besides I played ping-pong in my break (45 minutes) and chatted with my classmates a bit. I think we are 32 guys in our class from which most of them are girls. They are all very nice. They like to talk and listen to some crazy music. I think I will never like the music they do! It’s really hard for me to listen to it. I recently started liking one of the girls in my class. It’s difficult to talk to her, she is really quite and usually uncomfortable around boys. I just look at her all the time, but haven’t got the chance to talk to her so far. Maybe it works out in the future… 🙂 

Yeah, yeah… That was the day in school and a bit about my classmates. I also play football on Mondays. We are a group of migrants who come together and play in a sport hall. It’s nice to be among them & play with them. Like every other Monday I played football today too and that’s the reason why I am really tired now. I made some soup for myself and started writing my blog. The soup is nearly finished and I think my story for the day too. Hope you like the idea & come here often to read how my daily life looks like. Thanks for reading. 🙂

Am I just too much?

I am one of those people who constantly considers others, regardless of the detriment to my life. This is especially true in my relationships. I can’t help myself for always thinking, what would they like, and getting it , what do they need? And providing it. I always want to go the extra mile to make that person feel special and valued and important.

The trouble is, I have never been in a relationship where the other persons does the same for me. As I have got older and somewhat less wise, I have always questioned this. Maybe I am just not worth it? Sure there are gestures, but generally they are half hearted, or half thought out or promises are made and expectations are set and then they fail to deliver.

Are the people that I pick just overcome with emotional laziness. Or do I just give too much? It is my fault? Do I expect to much? Is the problem actually me? Should I just try and rein it in? Am I the only reason why I am continually disappointed?

As you can tell, I am having one of those days. I just want to be adored. We all want that don’t we? So come on my lovely readers, let me know – Am I just too much?

“If we look at the world with a love of life, the world will reveal its beauty to us.” ~Daisaku Ikeda

Hey friends, here I am again with something which kept me going on so far. I’ve always managed to find things that inspire me. No matter how creative you are, there will always be days when you’ll need inspiration. Inspiration means to make someone want to do something, to move them toward trying to do better, to be better. People who are inspired are more open to new experiences and are more absorbed in their tasks. If you’re feeling unmotivated, stuck or lost, these are ways to get inspired every day!

Here are few small things I would suggest to get some inspiration:

  • Take a walk outside practice mindfulness, and lose track of time for a while.
  • Read books and magazines 
  • Listen to music
  • Connect with people
  • Teach someone to do something and tap into your potential as a leader.
  • Read blogs written by people who have overcome adversity
  • Ask someone you love what they consider to be the most important thing they’ve ever learned.
  • Go for shopping
  • Take a camera outside and photograph everything that looks beautiful to you.

I just want to add something. I am really new here, but you guys have been my inspiration to continue! You are all amazing and so supportive! Thank you So much for following this journey with me.

We all need inspiration, no matter who we are or what we do. So what about you? Where and how you find your inspiration? Let me know in the comment box. You never know who might get inspired by your words.

Thank you so much for reading! Have a wonderful day and always stay inspired 🙂

Childhood

Have you heard someone recently, who wants to be a child again?

Of course every stage of our life is important, but childhood is an unforgettable time in our life. One has no worries, no tremendous workload, no caring about what others might think. Free from all these extra-added problems in life.

Beside that, as a child we spend our time mostly with our parents than in later life. They take care of us every minute and devote themselves to us. If we are ill we have a person to look after us. If we fight with other friends, they are there to give us a piece of advice.There is always someone who we can turn to…

I really miss the time when I just turned five. It was a beautiful summer day, the sun was just rising. Because of the very hot weather, I was sleeping on our rooftop. My mom came walking the stairs to wake me up for school, but as always I insisted to sleep for few more minutes & said the very thing I would say every morning. “Mama please, it’s early yet let me sleep for 10 more minutes and then I will get up”, she kept insisting that I am getting late, but I would keep my eyes shut until she would come & give me a kiss on my forehead.

After a while I woke up, wash my face with water and a small piece of soap in our bathroom & then came inside our only room where we had to sit, eat and sleep. I had a piece of bread fried in oil and also a glass of milk with a lot of sugar for my breakfast already prepared by my mom. Soon after having my breakfast I would take my bag which my Dad bought me from a very famous shop in Jalalabad. I would start walking to school. It was about 20-minute walk from our house, which was my daily routine in the mornings. In the evenings, I would go out & play with other children of my age. Creating houses from sand & imagining it was our palace we were going to live in.

Life was so simple, I had no responsibilities. All I knew was playing, eating & sleeping. There are a lot of more reasons why I want to be a child again.Defining them would take a lot of space & time now…

Would you also like to be a child again?? I am really interested in your opinions. Please comment below & let me know what you think. Thanks. 🙂
