“Keep a diary, and someday it’ll keep you.”
– Mae West
What a saying, Today daily prompts, forced me to open my diary when I was 16. I bring it out and start reading. I read it for about 1 hour and just forget why I brought it out from my old bag.
My diary, kept me, preserved me in my sixteen very well. I smiled and get sad also while reading the random pages. Okay let’s say I am 85% still like 16 years old Afsheen, Surprisingly though! And I am glad that the lost 15% was not worth enough to keep at all.
I had taken some clicks from my diary, I want you all to meet the 16 years old Afsheen by yourself!
Allah is always with me, I write notes like these often.
I love Pakistan
I can’t see anything losing by Pakistan, whether it is in any sport, politics, or the people of Pakistan. I want to see my country with great power of Unity, Faith, Discipline and Love. I can just honestly do what is in my share and only PRAY FROM ALLAH.

This is beautiful. It’s a little window to you. I had a list of the countries I wanted to visit, too. Earlier in my life, though. When I was 12. It was on my wall in my bedroom! http://marthakennedy.wordpress.com/2014/04/16/stuck-in-the-mud/
Thank you so much for giving my Blog your precious time.
Well I still want to visit these countries , i didn’t mention Iran , China and India, I really really want to visit these 3 countries. They sound so mysterious to me.
Anyway , Glad to see you here.
May Allah bless you , ameen
China is wonderful and that is the first country I visited (lived in!). When I made my list (1964) China wasn’t even on it. Iran and India, yes, I’d like to visit them, too. I still have a list but traveling taught me that my list is just names of places; once I get somewhere it’s millions of times more interesting than I imagined. And as Robert Frost wrote in his poem, The Road Not Taken, one road leads to another that we never even knew was there!
Blessings on you, too.
greater Martha..how did you find China then??
Iran has so many holy places which I really want to visit.
India’s culture is very same like us in few parts but they also have so many other cultures which are very unique

HAHAHA Afsheen this was great. Tom and Jerry? This is my alltime favorite cartoon. I still watch it today as a 42 year old man. Fun story.
😀 … Yes it is 🙂 My father and husband also watch this show.. it is very unique in its own way. And i think there are no such cartoons now.
None. There never will be again.
I missed reading this until today. Thanks for going back into your personal “archives” and posting your entries from when you were 16- it looks like your were a talented writer and artist back then as well! I also enjoyed your list of countries to visit; have you visited any from that list since then?
Well thank you so much for liking it and secondly my list wish is still my wish list 🙂 I have never been to any other country yet. I am trying my best to go to India 🙂 Rest Allah knows:)
I love the quote “See the beauty of soul not the looks.” You are older than me. I am still 85% 13!
