Basketball , Baking and Me

Hello everyone, I am Aisha zahid and currently doing my bachelors from Lahore school of economics in majors in marketing and minors in media. describing my past in one word would be “twisted” .nothing happened to me the way I planned it, but it was the best part I got to experience new things and learnt a lot from it too. From childhood I have been favorite of my family as I am the only daughter that did not make me the favorite though. It’s my dad. He is the shining star of everyone eyes in his family and I resemble my dad a lot.

I always wanted to be pampered and taken extra care  kind of child, but no that spot taken by my youngest brother. We all simply adore him.

I did my junior school till A-levels from the city school and I have a lot of respect for it in my heart. Made some great friends and shared the most wonderful time with them as well. As I mentioned before nothing happened the way I wanted in my life and so is LSE was not exactly what I wanted to do. I am very much inclined towards the arts and drawing, since childhood I wanted to be a fashion designer. The fashion industry always attracted me a lot but God had different plan for me. I am from a business background and so my dad wanted me to join a business school, at first I use to regret the decision but now it’s all I wanted and the best I could have. I am thankful to God and pray that whatever is an ahead of me is only betterment for my future :).

I live to love something.my friends, family and my favorite sport basketball.it may be known as a fun past time for any person but I see it as a life. On the court struggling to win for the thing you are good at. It always was special for me and is a great way of exercise and a great way to have fun with friends and possibly make some new ones. Basketball in my view is the best thing I can do with my friends to have fun while burning a few calories. I see basketball as a fun and easy way to have fun rather than sitting on the couch all day playing video games or watching television. Basketball is known as a good pastime in many people’s eyes but can also be seen as a passion for many others. 163315_10152544277020307_1146573613_nTo me there is not only one word that I can describe basketball.

To the people who are new at basketball you can play it with different styles .there are styles such as a passer, playmaker, shooter, defensive player, and dunker or highflyer. When you play basketball you feel much more confident and makes you not care much about how others think about you. When I possess the ball in basketball I have the mentality of being the best and no one could stop me. Many people have creative ideas and find new ways to trick the opposing players. Playing Basketball is very entertaining since there are endless ideas you can think of just with a hoop and a basketball. It’s a great way to get your mind off things and is also a great way to express yourself. It is a sport that can work your whole body. I see in my eyes that basketball is very addicting and makes you want to play more and more of it.

 

Another passion of mine is baking. My mom is a great cook and she also wanted me to learn cooking like her so it was a matter of two three times to enter in the kitchen and voila.

My advice to new bakers is to be patient because it’s not a one day game and follow the recipe exactly. You need all the ingredients on room temperature for better results. I wish to prosper in future and the love for my sports and cooking remains the same

Play time

                           

Most of my day consists of rushing, assignments, and going to class. With all that, all my time is frequently taken up. It is very hard to find time for myself. It can get very hectic with homework, the weather and the lectures.

 Different individuals have different hobbies. Some people are on the hobby of collecting stamps or philately. Some have attraction for writing books and editing in newspapers. Without any hobby of our own, our life would have been void of charm and joy.

 

When I do get the opportunity to have some extra time, I have another activity I enjoy doing. I engage myself in the hobby of basketball.

I think by this way I make the proper use of time.   Since I was a little girl, I started to play basketball in the school team and also with my friends in the neighborhood. My mother told me that I liked kicking the ball around and had so much fun with it when I was only about three years old. Since then, playing basketball is my favorite sport and it is my hobby whenever I have free time.
Playing basketball also helps me to relax and be confident when I have stress and frustration.   For example, after doing my homework or when I come home from my university, I play a little bit with my friends to get

relief of the tension and worries I face the whole day.

Whenever I play basketball, I feel healthy and stronger.  I not only like playing basketball, but I also enjoy watching basketball on television. Also, during weekends, I would call up my friends to play basketball with me. After the intense games, we would go to the teashop nearby to relax and grab some cold drinks to cool us down from the games we had. It not only gives me a peace of mind but also help me enjoying with my friends too.
For me, basketball is a part of my life and it means a lot to me.

Most of the people confine hobbies related to sports and exciting activity to men. I fail to agree. Adventure is something that every human seeks because it gives them a sense of thrill and achievement.

Many of us let go of our interests and hobbies to assemble the daily demands of life, don’t do that. Life is about being happy, about being able to enjoy what you do, and trust me, there are many things that people enjoy doing.
