Christmas, New Year and the Cold

Yes I know I’ve been away for long. Long enough that I didn’t write about a few important occasions and events that happened in last couple of weeks. To make excuses I could say that I was not well, was working overtime, was busy the rest of the time, or just didn’t feel like blogging at all. But to be honest, all my excuses are true.

Yes, I was working over the holiday period because my nature of job doesn’t allow me to take days off when rest of the world is off on holiday. Anyway, like always they were expecting it to be a “White Christmas” this year, because it had snowed in the first week of December, but it didn’t materialize. New Year’s Eve was, to be honest, quieter than last year’s, and the year’s before that, but I couldn’t really think of a reason other than people still suffering from the Credit Crunch and all that _____…  But yeah New Year was not all that this year. Though it was quite busy down in London, as my younger brother went down to see the amazing fireworks display that they do near the London Eye every New Year’s Eve.

All this holiday period I was down with chesty cough, flu, cold, fever and what not. Which really didn’t help me enjoy this amazing time of the year when everyone is going crazy. And yeah it wasn’t some normal flu fever kind of thing, it was a viral infection, hundreds of people die in this country every year because of this virus. So I was worried whether or not I will survive it… :S

My status on facebook and twitter on the 01-01-11 was ‘M B A Khan has entered the new year as a Professional Photographer’. This means a lot to me, and I mean a lot! Last year really helped me to make my mind up regarding what do I ‘really’ want to do in life. I have been an artist all my life, that’s what I’ve loved doing, that’s what makes me happy, and that is really what I’m going to make my career in. Yes I have made my mind to become a Professional Photographer. I am going to follow my dream now. I know I have made some wrong decisions in life, but who doesn’t? I once read somewhere that not to learn from a mistake is a bigger mistake. So yeah, I will be one day photographing amazing things and living my dream to the fullest!

Anyway, I’ve got to get ready for work now and I’ll try not to be away for this long again.

Happy New Year Everyone!


Every Day a Happy Day!

What a lovely thought isn’t it? I mean people have different Happy Days, like Merry Christmas for Christians, Eid Mubarak for Muslims, Happy Diwali for Hindus, etc., also days like Happy Birthday, Happy Anniversary and many more but just imagine if we people start thinking that Every day is a Happy Day in its own way.

I went to the bank today and there were quite a few international students present in the bank(because it’s start of the new term). One of the Oriental Students had “Every Day a Happy Day” written on the first page of her notebook. It made me smile and I thought to myself that what a beautiful thing it was to read something like that today. Why today? Because I have passed my Driving Theory Test Today. That too, only after a day’s preparation. Amazing, isn’t it? That’s M B A Khan for you. 😛 So yeah it’ s a Happy Day for me!

This was a lovely thing that happened today, So I’m blogging about it. 🙂
