After Christmas I shall put some more content up, and as promised I will finish off the Here With Me story also on this blog, but please do be patient on the story front as at the moment I’m currently experiencing a mental block, but I am rereading what I previously done and hoping to continue where I left off in the story.

The Lost Girl Has Finally Returned! :)

Hello my dear friends and  followers,

How are you?

It appears that I took a wrong turn and ended up getting so lost I couldn’t find my way back. Somehow, I finally managed to get back on track and here I am, again.

Firstly, I would like to apologise to all of you, for such a lengthy disappearance act. Well you see a few months ago I had to drop everything and take care of the household and whilst looking after my mother (who is much better now). Then things ended up getting crazy over the past months due to work searching, CV’s and covering letters, courses, job interviews and not getting anywhere and only now have things settled down.

As always though, I am still busy – just the way I like it – but I’m going to maintain this blog.

A few thoughts occurred during the phase and I wasn’t proud of it. It was like a game of tug of war (if that is the correct name, I’ve forgotten lol) a part of me was saying, I would never have time for the blog anymore and that I should delete it; but then another part of me thought that you have worked so hard to make this blog survive and all the hard work and effort will be a waste, You need to go back! Your followers are missing you, can’t you not see that?

Eventually the voice that said I need to go back eventually won. And here I am.

So here’s what I am planning to do:

  1. I have created another blog which will be just for my stories.
  2. I am keeping this blog as a thought journal, or songs of the day that is related to life in general.
  3. The stories on this blog shall remain here, but I will also upload them onto the new blog as well.
  4. The Here With Me story I shall continue but upload onto the new blog!
  5. On the new blog I will continue to do the 5 word writing challenge, I heard that it helped, or inspired some others to write also.
  6. I will also be doing a word a day, this is just to help me to broaden my vocabulary.
  7. Lastly, on the new blog I will do songs of the day that relate to my stories or characters.

Once again I wish to take the time to apologise for my absence and I hope you can truly forgive me and know that I really truly have missed everyone from this blog. Especially my followers and the friends that I made.

I will give the link to the new blog when it is ready to be fully launched!

P.S. I have changed my username to Gurmeet Kaur rather than Misguidedghost86. I wanted to come back with a new sense of positivity. Gurmeet Kaur is my alias now 🙂

Anyway, I better go now.

See everybody around!

A Little Thank You Note! :)

Thank You Message

Recently I have been reading this book called “The Magic” and it is mostly about feeling gratitude for everything you have in life and feeling grateful.

I’ve been following the exercises in the book for the past 18 days and I’ve noticed a huge difference in the way I feel.

In doing the exercises everyday I feel happier and the self hate that I used to feel is leaving me bit by bit. I’ve started to learn to love myself again. Right now it feels as though I’m back in 2011 when I first came out of shell, the first time I got my pixie haircut (as I got the pixie cut this time round, again); but there is one difference. I haven’t fallen in love this time!

Anyway I’m moving on to the main point of this post. And here it is: whilst counting my blessing I put my blog, my followers and my blog friends as a blessing. It is because of you guys that I am still here blogging away. You motivate me and inspire me to continue, and your kind comments and likes give me the push I need to make my stories and posts better!

So basically I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for you, my followers, the people that like my posts, my blog friends and most of all to the friend that pushed me to create the blog in the first place.

This is me just saying Thank You so much for your support and it means a lot to me! 🙂

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!

And now I shall stop there.

I found this nice picture from google and I thought it said everything I wanted to say 🙂

Liebster Blog Award!


I would like to thank Dreampunk Geek for nominating me for the Liebster award. It means so much to actually receive this award as it shows all the hard work that I put into stories/enteries has paid off. So thank you once again! And I found myself a spot in the blogging world.

The Rules:

  1. Thank the person that nominated you and link back to them.
  2. Answer the questions that the nominated person gave you.
  3. Nominate at least ‘5’ blogs that have less than 200 followers.
  4. Write down 5 questions for the nominee’s to answer.
  5. Post it all on one’s blog.

My questions to Answer:

What do you do when you can’t sleep?

Well when I can’t sleep sometimes I read a book, listen to music (on earphones of course) or I play video games. Once when I was ill with the flu and I couldn’t sleep, I ended up playing Prince of Persia on my mobile, and actually completed the game within 2 hours. The rest of the night I listened to music.

If you had the ability to time travel, would you go to the past or future? Why?

If I had the ability to time travel to the past or the future, I would go into the future just to see how things look at the other end. I would want to see if I am something better than what I am now. Am I happy? Got a good job that accepts me for what I am and never pulls me down, and gained a lot of progression through decent hard work.

Favorite drink?

My favourite drink? I have two favourites. The first one is my master as without it I cannot seem to function properly, it is Mountain Dew Energy Drink. The second is from Twinings: Mango and Lychee Greentea. I would recommend both as they are yummy!

Tell us a secret.

A secret? Once I signed up to be a in a band as a signer. and at that time I really wanted to be a singer (I even joined the choir and gospel singing class and an actual singing class in college as part of an enrichment program), and they told me I was crap because my voice wasn’t rocky enough. So never sang again. No-one knows of that except for my mum and brother. Not even my friends. Until now of course! 

Sing or dance?

I would prefer to sing. Even after not singing for years I would prefer it. Although it is mostly humming, but I sing quietly to myself.  I just cannot dance. I have no coordination. Maybe I should join up for a zumba class! apparently good for improving coordination problems.

My Nominations:
