Play Life Like A Free Cell Game

With respect to there being no 'restart life' option: I'm trying to deal with it (surprisingly hard to do considering how recently it has struck me). And yes, I did take the background photos I am using here so there's no plagiarism involved.

De-NAY-ing it

What prompted this? 
(Only for people who understand Urdu/Hindi  - for those who don't understand: it's a torrent of grievances about how women are never happy, are always bitching and have a problem with almost everything)

You're First...Therefore, You're The Loser

I know it sounds whiny. It's not meant to be. Okay, actually it is - a tiny bit. Disregard the whininess and concentrate on the logic of it. There you go.

"Girls Your Age..."

It's just too bad, rural ladies don't get to hear about how their urban sisters are driving around, free as a bird and have a lil something called 'life'...And I mean come on, having kids in your twenties - understandable but this lecture is given to 14-year-olds all over the country. What are you trying to tell us?

Could It Be? - Nah!.........Oh. It Could.

What triggered this?
I could put the link here but I won't. Don't want the hate to spread (not that it'll help) - the only thing I'll say is this: Please refrain from making fun of other people's beliefs. Also, in case you hadn't noticed, you are not in charge of passing judgement. Well okay, you are - on yourself.  Aaaaaaaaaaaand you can begin......NOW.

Girls, Be Safe (In Fight Or Fright)

Don't answer that last question.
And do NOT discuss head-scarves/religious issue here. Look at 

And while we're talking about cat fights, the only ammunition girls have is HAIR. I remember coming home from school and telling my dad about a catfight and even he said "Well, overall I'm guessing no harm done - hair can grow back" :P I am so glad I have short hair so I'm safe (relatively speaking).

If you don't believe me about hair ammunition:

That is NOT Mirpur, AK - I think it's a private exclusive school in one of the bigger cities.
Anyway, still not convinced?

F'oreal: Because You're Worth........ A Lot

This is why I hate going to unknown beauty salons to get my hair cut  - the 'beauticians' are like leeches - In all honesty, I can't blame them for pushing it but I like having the freedom of choice if only for how fake I want to look (a little and not too much, as it turns out)

A Hairy Situation

Yes, I know - sort of a girly topic, right? 'Some' people (including my sibling) were doubting if I was a girl lady cuz I'm not into makeup and/or dressing up. (Yes, getting me to discuss clothes really is akin to torturing me  - although that doesn't deter me from trying to sew them, I've noticed). But she and I have always wondered about the above. You get no points for trying to guess which situation applies to me. *sticks tongue out!* 

P.S: From my school grammar classes, I seem to remember hair was to written in the singular - like sheep and/or fish so did they change the rule? Or did I understand incorrectly?

Deep Meaningful Conversations....

...with your friends can make you a better person.

Yes, I learnt a lot from this particular piece.

*beefee = best friend (or as I like to say Baise faaraind)
