Quickly list five things you’d like to change in your life. Now write a post about a day in your life once all five have been crossed off your to – do list.
1. Return notes to Shazia.
2. Choose a dress for the coming Eid.
3. Eating favorite Ice – cream.
4. Visit aunty Farah.
5. See a movie.
Esme hurried to cross the road. She had so many things lined up. She had finished her final paper. It wasn’t possible for today, but by tomorrow she could go, and visit Shazia, and return all the notes she had taken from her.
For now, when she reached home, she was going to choose a dress for the coming Eid-ul-Duha, which was less than a month away. Mother had badgered Esme to order the dress, but she kept on saying, “after the exams”. So that was the first priority.
Then next on the agenda was having her favorite ice-cream with mother; a concoction of pecans, and caramel. She was going to enjoy each spoon full.
She looked forward to visiting aunty Farah. She hadn’t seen her adorable cousins Maira, and Farwa for some time. She missed their lively chatter.
Finally, Esme planned to stay up late, and watch the latest movie she had ordered.
Now she was hurrying to cross the road. She spun in slow motion, as the car hit her, scattering what she held in her hands.
So much for plans!
