Expressing myself to 100 now.

We’re soaring, flying, there’s not a star in heaven that we can’t see.

If we’re trying, yeah we’re breaking free.

-Breaking Free, High School Musical

So. Here I am. When I first created this blog, I was 13. Now, I am 15. In these two years I literally had one or two people following my blog.

It was just a month ago, on a normal sunny day, that people actually started to read and comment on my work. They started to follow me and well, I was so overwhelmed. I am still trying to figure out what changed suddenly. 

I was still me, I still used to write just what used to come to my mind. There were times I felt that I was just messing around. But I didn’t give up on this thing. This amazing thing called Sentinel Of Phantasm.

Yes I did change. That 13 years old me and this 15 years old me are poles apart. But I didn’t give up on my writing. Maybe stopped for some months but I was unable to leave it. This, is my relief from all the daily life drama and stress. This, is my achievement.

And now that I look back to all those years I struggled with my work. I realize that I could never give up on my blog. It’s something worth my time, something that made me feel known. Something that gives me hope that I can  always dream and achieve. Because I can.

-Thank you to all the followers. I am so so thankful to all of you I don’t think I can ever explain how much. I know I am still very inexperienced and my writing need so much more improvement. But the fact that you people always like and appreciate my work gives me a feeling that I am going the right way. The way which would get me to my destination. Thanks once again. All of you. 

PS: What I really wanted to say was -‘yayyyyyyyyy 100 followers, GOD I am running out of words’- But well, my words and hands betray me sometimes.

-Thanks for reading this.

 -Be nice, do good 🙂

Call them ‘A Fighter’.

chain-690088_960_720
Like a small boat
On the ocean
Sending big waves
Into motion
Like how a single word
Can make a heart open
I might only have one match
But I can make an explosion
And all those things I didn’t say
Wrecking balls inside my brain
I will scream them loud tonight
Can you hear my voice this time?
This is my fight song
Take back my life song
Prove I’m alright song
My power’s turned on
Starting right now I’ll be strong
I’ll play my fight song
And I don’t really care if nobody else believes
‘Cause I’ve still got a lot of fight left in me.
Fight Song By Rachel Platten
Hola, Hej and Hello. Did I ever mention in any of my blog post that I want to be an Oncologist? Well I don’t think so. Well yeah, now that I mentioned it. I want to be a cancer specialist. Now whenever I mention this in front of anyone, the first reaction that I ever get is ‘Oh, so why do you want to be one? Does someone close to you was a fighter or survivor?’. Not that anyone asked me this question when I used to say that I wanted to be a dermatologist.
The point is, you don’t have to be a cancer survivor nor does someone close to you ever need to be one in order for you to have an interest in helping people to fight it. People have different interest in different things all the time.
Those people who fight cancer are legends, even the ones who don’t survive, they all are the winners, the strongest ones among us. They don’t need our pity. Yes we can sympathize with them. But we don’t need to show it.
The world is getting modern day by day. We learn how to fit in it, how to catch up to it. We learn and strive hard to not get left behind in it, and we adapt to all the new ways and trends that are introduced to us.
So well, This is one more thing we need to learn and practice really really hard. It’s that how to not make a cancer fighter realize in every moment of their life that they are fighting something they didn’t ask for at the first place.We need to learn to how to be just normal around them, to not pity them, to not make their life any harder than it already is.
I am no doctor or specialist. Well, not yet. But one thing that I know for sure is that every smile and a normal look that you pass on to a fighter becomes a part of their therapy.
So let’s just try and help through any way that we can.
-Thank you
-Have a nice weekend
-Be nice, do good

Recognize Your Super Power.

20160903_145021.jpg

We are living in a world which is being destroyed, piece by piece, in each second that we breath. There are tons of problems that this world is facing and whether we address them or not, there are problems lurking around in the corner for our future generations. Be it global warming, which we may or may not know, could destroy our planet in the worst way possible or be it terrorism, or wars, or maybe even child labor even though WHO CARES UNTIL OR UNLESS IT’S NOT YOUR OWN CHILD  WHO’S WORKING AT THE AGE WHEN THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN IN A SCHOOL LEARNING THINGS LIKE HOW COULD THEY CONSERVE FOSSIL FUELS.

Don’t worry, These are just four problems that I mentioned. And the irony is that some of them aren’t even considered “major issues”. And why should any of this be considered? after all, don’t we have Superman, Batman, Captain America, Iron man, and Aqua man *Don’t forget that the sea creatures also need some serious rescue* to save the day.

Okay, so personally, I am a HUGE superman fan but *tada!* time to realize that those people aren’t real. They won’t save the day when most of the world population would be uneducated, they won’t be able to help when the frequent oil spills, mercury and lead contamination in the oceans, and all the marine pollution would eventually lead to the painful deaths and extinctions of the most common sea creatures, nor would they be there to help when the world would be a peace-less place which it has become just now, at least the half of it.

So the point is that this is delusion and imagination of the human beings. We can’t be dependent on someone else to save the day. In the end, we have to be our own superhero. Even when you and I are no world leaders or public figures, we shouldn’t fail in playing our parts to protect this world which is just so close to destruction.

We can at least try to save ourselves, or fellow homo-sapiens, and yes at the same time we should continues watching and believing at all those superhero’s movies not with the  hope that they will save the day when time comes *And once again, the day is saved, thanks to the Power Puff Girls!, Sorry, couldn’t help myself* so yeah, we should watch Batman VS Superman and Justice League and Captain America etc etc not with some false hope that they’ll save us, but with hope that we can learn something good out of them, something helpful, something that would make us a better person for ourselves and the world.

-Play your part. Be kind. Do good.

-Thanks for reading

-PS: I hope you’re all having a great weekend!
