I’ve started reading a new Urdu novel, Jannat Kai Pattay (Leaves of Heaven) that a friend recommended me to read. I like the style of the writing and the story is good so far, although it has already started off with suspense and is very weird in a few places. Let’s see how it turns out.

His Dark Materials season 2 has been released!!! Two episodes have come out and so far so good. Finally I can see the second book of this trilogy comes to life, although I would’ve loved a more expressive Lyra like the one in the movie The Golden Compass. I’m glad they showed Lyra moving the dials to each symbol on the alethiometer (the instrument that tells the truth). An episode is released every Sunday so am excited to watch it!

I went out for some winter shopping as the shivering cold season just showed up one day and now I’m shivering like anything. I went here to Nishat Linen where every stitched kameez of theirs also had a matching stitched face mask with them. Even the kameez I got (not this one) had one and it looked pretty cool.

Since I’ve given up coffee since last week, I’ve started appreciating a nice cup of mixed chai (tea) that I’m going to start binge drinking, because of its warmth and taste.

After having partied so much after my sister’s Nikkah, I’ve decided to head back to the library to study for my annual professional exams that will take place by the end of December. I reach there at 8am and leave around 12 hours later so I manage to cover a lot of content. I took along biryani with me for lunch because it is delicious and I get satiated quickly so hunger isn’t distracting my concentration. I had a cup of mixed tea as well and saw a big, orange and white stray cat scare away a small black and gray cat to steal the bones I had leftover from my biryani. Weird experience but it was nice to be entertained.

When the library is so cold and the Sun brings a lot of heat to the cool winter day.

It’s just me ‘chilling’ at the library today with my textbook showing reactions of photoreceptors, a water bottle and hidden on the side is my phone with my earphones to jam to, random tissue paper and extra socks to keep my feet warm. Happy studying(ish)!!
