Who am I?

Tayyaba Iftikhar is pursuing a bachelors degree in Mass Communication. She’s known by many names: Tab,  Tay and Timbukto are some of them. Feel free to call her any of these.

She’s dragging her feet through  university, fighting a war against procrastination and trying to achieve a little place of her own in this world.

The journey is perilous but she hopes she makes it through.

Oh, and she loves cake.

    Hahaha, I’m not a regular blogger. 😛 so my blog usually is catching the dust but occasionally, himmat kar kay kuch likh laiti hun. 😀

  2. Hey, Thaanie! Just give me your ID. It’ll be so much easier for me to find you than the other way around. There are lots of people with my name floating around. =P

    Uh.. Sure.. But there’s one problem.. You see, I was in FB before… and my parents were okay with it…until..something happened…
    The teachers requested my mother to ground me frm FB..So my mum grounded me frm FB for 3 yrs… 😦 I used to have ” Thaanie Mohamed ” .. buy now its de-activated..
    I tried getting online when they were asleep but ended up falling into double trouble!They had put K9 web protection alert into our comp and they can see what ever we do. >..< Sux ryt?
    Anyways, you can have my mail ad until I get an FB ad.. So add me in mail until then.. 😛

      Seriously.. I wonder if my parents would allow me to use FB when I’m 50!
      I think not! >.<

      Anyway, God Luck, Thaanie!!! mwah! ♥ ♥

  10. thank you for swinging by and showing solidarity with the martyrs of the bhoja airline crash !….hope u keep visiting for much happier posts as well !

  11. abasnoor says:

    Asalamu 3alaikum! Thank you for stopping by. I enjoy the creativity you have here. Looking forward to more.

  12. Hi Tab……..thanks for stopping by ‘Unwalled’ and liking my Mother’s Day post. You’re blog is quite colorful and interesting. I’m glad you chose writing as your way to escape……..it’s far more healthy than many other choices :).
    All the best with your journey through university………one thing that helped me was to keep thinking that my degrees were only tools I needed to help achieve my career goals and I kept visualizing graduation day……..the other thing was prayer……..Shalom!…..Kim

    • You’re welcome!

      And Thank YOU for dropping in an awesome comment!
      Hah, that’s what I do! Think of the day I would graduate, even though it sends a pang through my heart.

  13. I really like how you’ve customized your blog! It looks and feels good. I recently wrote about how writing soothes me… It reaally is an escape to a beautiful world. And on a side note, I like your blog:) Do you live in Pakistan?
    I like cake too:) But those that are not very sweet and non-chocolatty. And I may say I bake well. Should I bake you one? 😉

    • Thank You, Moniba!
      It really is, isn’t it? Come to think of it, writes2escape just floated in my head without just one big thought!

      Yus, I live in the Land of Pure aka Pakistan! Oh, not much of a sugar person are you? 😉 Oh, Yes please! I bet it would taste out of this universe!

  14. AnkitaD says:

    is it unconditional love for cake, or it just depends? For me, if it’s chocolate and whipped cream, then I am totally set.

    • It’s pure unconditional love, I tell you. A bit disturbing but totally pure.

      Oh Yum, sounds delish. I can eat any cake – experimentation is the thing – but keep the pineapples off, please!

  15. drsuraiyanasim says:

    As-salaam-alaikum Tabby! Bright and lovely blog you got here.
    I have finished college dear….trying to get a foot-hold in the world of jobs and preparing for a specialisation. It’s so nice meeting you. 🙂

  16. I have nominated you for ‘The beautiful blogger award’. If you’re willing to play the game,check out the rules on my blog. If not, don’t feel any compulsion to follow through.
    Take care! 🙂

  17. Hi Tab……..thanks for dropping by “Unwalled” again and liking my post “A Place Called Stuck”. I’ve visited that place many times in my life and will probably go there again a few more times (smile), but I never intend to purchase any property and build a home……..LOL……with God’s help I just keep passing through…….blessings to you!……..Kim

  18. I am so delighted to reach your blog and read your writings. Today is Eid and I greet you and your near and dear ones:

    May the choicest
    blessing of Allah
    fill your life with
