Wouldn't it be great if we could turn back the clock? I bet it's everybody's dream! Correcting the mistakes we've made, choosing the right paths, making the right decisions... but life doesn't work that way people -_-
There are so many things I wish I had done differently, but I believe wishing so will not grant me the experience I have today especially that related to dealing with people.
- I've learned a great deal of information regarding certain types of people and how to deal with them.
- I've been on both sides of the coin which is a wonderful way to experience what others have.
- You acquire wisdom which is not given to everybody.
- You become more careful in planning your future moves, a listener more than a talker.
- You get to tell stories about the things that happened, be it misfortunes or not, you'll end up having your share of laughter after time has driven by it.
- The most important thing, is that you see who's still with you on this journey despite all the mistakes and misfortunes and during your maturity. Those are often the people who'll last till the end, to forever and beyond, the people you'd want to meet in the afterlife.
So stop wishing for a clock to turn back time and live this moment, laugh on the mistakes you've made and deal with the present situations. Regret is a good for nothing tool while moving on with your life and trying new things is the refreshment you'll need.
Now who needs to turn back the clock when you are who you are today because of all that has happened? They say mistakes shape you up better than the right decisions and no one could tell how success tastes without a sip of failure ;)
Have a refreshing start!
Â bientôt ;)

Here's a chilling poem in remembrance of the cold month of the cold December times back home~
The cold earth slept below;
Above the cold sky shone;
And all around,
With a chilling sound,
From caves of ice and fields of snow
The breath of night like death did flow
Beneath the sinking moon.
The wintry hedge was black;
The green grass was not seen;
The birds did rest
On the bare thorn’s breast,
Whose roots, beside the pathway track,
Had bound their folds o’er many a crack
Which the frost had made between.
Thine eyes glow’d in the glare
Of the moon’s dying light;
As a fen-fire’s beam
On a sluggish stream
Gleams dimly—so the moon shone there,
And it yellow’d the strings of thy tangled hair,
That shook in the wind of night.
The moon made thy lips pale, beloved;
The wind made thy bosom chill;
The night did shed
On thy dear head
Its frozen dew, and thou didst lie
Where the bitter breath of the naked sky
Might visit thee at will.
The cold earth slept below by Percy Bysshe Shelley
Enjoy the cold, for those who live in the cold parts of the earth :(
And nobody saw December coming!
After a nice -and much needed- breeze in November, here we are standing in front of the last month of the year 2014. To be honest, am not ready to start writing 2015 in the date column :/ it still feels weird how unbelievably fast time is going, as if it were flying. I could almost hear Demi Lovato's song "Let it go~" in my head xD No Demi, I can't let it go!
But only new beginnings hold the key to relief, after all, they say "the happiest are, those who forget quickly" and since a lot has happened during the past few months, it is only wise to learn from them and move on. I've met new people, lost dear friends, made new friends, caught up with some good old friends and done a lot of fun things! I had the best birthday party that could be made within few hours x3 And made some progress with my research... Alhamdoulillah.
One problem I still have is insomnia, some troubled souls still come to bother me at night and I can only wish them the best of luck... outside my room please xD After moving to the new Mahallah, we started hearing-and feeling- a lot of ghost-related stories (my favourite subject) which turned out to be super spooky and super true :s but that's a story for another post.
Since the title of my blog says "I shall read to you again" which happens to be the title of my favourite composed poem, I've decided to start reading stories to you, my dears: True stories, for the purpose of letting some dragon fire burst out in the open air from one side, and singing starry lullabies from the other side... all for a higher purpose that no one will know about :p After all, am tired of keeping things bottled up on the inside.
So welcome December and let's pray the upcoming days will hold more learning experiences and fun times, for there's one thing I'll never be satiated with; and that is a sip from the wisdom glass.
Au revoir ;)

Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay.
Remember me when no more, day by day,
You tell me of our future that you planned:
Only remember me; you understand
It will be late to counsel then or pray.
Yet if you should forget me for a while
And afterwards remember, do not grieve:
For if the darkness and corruption leave
A vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.”
Christina Rossetti, The Complete Poems

So wake me up when October's over~
I've had the most challenging, tiring, nerve-wracking month ever! and am grateful I managed to pull it through... with my full sanity. Am glad I'll be back to blogging and doing whatever crazy things I used to do, I missed them dearly. I will bury October in the back of my memory and welcome November with open arms <3
We've moved to a new mahallah and it was the refreshing breeze we all needed, things appear much better from the current view and hopefully, each tomorrow will bring a better story for me to tell.
That's all I can say for now, cheers to new beginnings.
