Od·ys·sey :- A series of travels: a long series of travels and adventures
My Odyssey So Fine, It Dares To Defy This Very Time.
The names Mushba-- not Mishbah, not Muzbah, or Bushra, Mushba, M-U-S-H-B-A. I'm 19, in the most delightful country in the world (Pakistan), have the most revered of beliefs (Islam), and incase you haven't noticed, i LOVE GREEN; i'm also sarcastic, but i'd like to think i have a nice of humour, as i steer through these difficult waters i've suddenly found myself in, with the help of a blog no one reads, and a tumblr where i post whatever my heart desires. Currently, due to these difficult waters, i'm neglecting my online life to get a real life, but i'm sure you neglect a few things yourself, so we're even. Feel free to say hi (i'm very nice), or stalk (i can be very rude too!); whatever tickles your fancy.

This Tumblelog consists of reblogged photos and art i like; rants i've written myself; quotes that i collect; links of stuff i want to share/publicise; stuff from my art blog; & causes i support. A good way to navigate through my blog is to click the tags and use the index. Thank you for reading.
I decided to change this after reading my old one, because i’ve realised how much i’ve changed sadly; materialistically, i might’ve gained something, but i feel individually i’ve lost alot.
But, such sob stories will make this page redundant, thus i shall give you a cliched, but honest picture of myself…. a picture of words, not an actual picture :P
Honesty if the first thing you should know about me. I’m VERY honest… so honest i’ve lost ‘friends’ because i spoke my mind. I’m also very nervous and anxious, and this in turn makes me over-dramatic, and i have the tendency to over-react to everything, and get very emotional with everything -_- So yeah, tick the emotionally unstable box :P
The second thing you should know about me is that i once aspired to be a writer, and used to read voraciously, that is until my studies re-started (did i mentioned i dropped out of school for 9 years?), and i had to leave everything i love to obtain an education, of which i’m still in the process. But it’s worth it i guess, because i suppose i may love my family a bit more, irrespective of the ups and downs. —The one thing i have learned in life is that your birth and death are already decided by someone else, the middle is yours to write.
Ummmm… um um um… I love music! I have a very eclectic taste, though i no longer focus on the intrinsic value of the lyrics;— ever since my studies have started, and i have been exposed to society, my intellect that took me some 6 years to build has degenerated in a span of 3 years or so.
And i enjoy all things artsy; currently, i enjoy graphic design (that’s what i call making logos on photoshop :P). I like making jewellery too…. What else? I’m very sensitive about my name: It’s MUSHBA. M-U-S-H-B-A. Not a common name i know, but try to get it right damnit; it’s not Muzbah, or Misbah or whatever :P
And well, i love hugging, intellectual people, babies and kids, and animals; i support everything good, including gay rights; though my principles have faded to the back of my mind, these causes still keep it alive, along with argumentative essays in English at school :P
What else what else? Um, i’m trying to get back into reading, and faith, and everything else, let’s see how that goes. Blogging is something i do not have the intellectual energy to do it seems -_-
And that’s all i can come up with i suppose… i’m tired, and i tried -_-
I’m terribly sorry for this pedantic bio, and my boring blog. You clearly have a lot of time on your hands if you’ve read to this point, but i’m afraid it wasn’t well spent, sorry again -_- I’ll try to improve it.
In case you missed that little description on the side, i’m Mushba, i’m 16 going on 17 (just 8 days till my birthday!) i’m 17 18, and yes i’m a teenager, and like most teenagers, i’m confused and finding my way, and am extremely depressed about my life, but things like tumblr,(and certain friends and family), keep me going. (If you read beyond this point, thank you! Because its pretty damn long i can assure you)
I don’t like swearing, and i can’t stand people who swear, although tumblr has made me more tolerant. I don’t rebel like most kids my age; i’m against drugs, pre-marital sex, and drinking and smoking for reasons so long you’ll die trying to read and understand them. I rebel by being good, because lets face it, everybody’s bad these days, and bad is so last year! This blog of mine keeps me going and my typical self alive when the rest of the internet is confusing me. —At first, arguing why one should be good was my way of rebelling; now, it’s who i am, although i’m somewhat quiet and stupid in real life. I’m also as fat as a beached whale, prone to many diseases due to my parents bad mating choice, and i’m very self centered and constantly live in my imaginary world; no, i don’t live in a mental facility (yet!).
I have many philosophies, many thoughts, way too many crushes, and a small group of awesome people i call tumblr buddies and online friends; one thing that remains the same about me is the fact that writing my diary is very very important for my well being, and a tiny part of me still wants to be a writer and will continually be inspired by amazing classical novels. Yes i read, although these days i’ve been out of touch (i’m so sorry Henry James for not paying more attention to the Portrait); i ONLY read classical novels— to date, i’ve only read like 2 modern novels, Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach, and Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone by J.K. Rowling. My favourite novelists are the Bronte Sisters (Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights ring a bell?), Jane Austen (of course!), and Lewis Carroll. The Karachi International Book Fair is my favourite place to visit at the end of the year, because i feel happy there, although i’ve only been there twice, and on my first visit bought so many novels they’ll last me till i’m 21-30! (depending how much i read)..i bought 26 i think? ^^’ My current obsession is drawing on photoshop (yaayyy! no more sketchbook’s going to waste!), and i make a lot of mistakes in everything i do, whether drawing or writing, so you’ll have to bear with me.
I might hate my family sometimes, but i still love them; my mother loves me insanely (really seriously, it can drive a person insane) and my father has never said no to me when i wanted to do something. I’m the center of their worlds, and they’re the center mine, and i want to make them proud someday some how. My latest scheme on how to do that is to become a tennis player (i can dream). Justine Henin is my tennis idol by the way.
Final few things (at least i think these are the final few xD):
I’m 5”8 (yes i’m proud of my height);
I love music (who doesn’t?)..Phil Collins and Michael Jackson are my 2 childhood favourites whose music still inspires me;
I’m a more accomplished songwriter than a story teller, because i’ve actually written a bunch of songs and finished them, unlike my Godforsaken stories;
I like Encyclopedias alot;
I’m into history, geography and animals, and thats why i like watching National Geographic, and don’t mind listening to other people talk about it, or reading long articles about it;
I’m pro-choice (yes i support abortion, ask me why, and i’ll tell you why the schmuck), believe in contraception, and am confounded when grown teenagers don’t know anything about reproduction but everything about porn;
I’m a practicing Muslim, i believe in my faith, because my faith teaches me to believe in peace;
I love panda’s, whales, cheetahs, lions, gorillas, koala bears, owls, hawks, falcons, dolphins, bears, tigers, and wolves (these are my favourite animals :P );
I’m a Gemini (May 29-er!);
I’m highly opinionated…i’ve got so many opinions on almost everything, its really insane;
I invented the term *panda XxX’s* (panda hugs);
I like Yiddish words like schmuck, and my names Hebrew as well (i just found this out, so please, no Yahudhee traitor stuff please) ;
I’m silly and stubborn and crazy, and thank you very much for reading to this point. Really, thank you. I’d love to get to know you, because you seem to have a lot of spare time ;b
*panda XxX’s* and much love,

Guys, i was going through my tags, and i found that when i’m going through a particular tag, and decide to click on the last page (circled in the snippet below), it takes you to the general last page (like it’ll take you to page 32 of my blog, not to page 32 of THAT TAG), not to the last page relevant to that tag. So yeah, since i don’t know how to fix it, just thought i’d let to you all know
