Does it ever just make you want to cry, to think that Allah has promised you something better? And you know its there, but you can’t see it, and you cant touch it, and until it reaches you, you’re fumbling around and making mistakes. And sometimes they’re big mistakes. And sometimes they’re small mistakes. And… Continue reading Something Better
I spent a solid hour explaining to my sister that she’s better looking than she thinks she is, but she doesn’t realize it because she’s not used to her own face. Like, she thinks she has certain unfavorable traits because she focuses on those when she looks in the mirror and scrutinizes them far beyond what… Continue reading Thoughts
A few days ago I received an anonymous question on tumblr from a young Muslim asking for advice. I think this is a topic we can all relate to in some way, so I wanted to share it with you. Q: I feel I can’t do anything, and there are so many pressures. How can… Continue reading Islam is Too Strict (Tumblr Question)

When I saw the trailer for the first time I honestly thought I would hate it and it’d be stupid but I am so in love with… Continue reading My Current Obsessions 2

I feel like I do the most exciting/stupid/hilarious stuff with my sister and… Continue reading My Sister is Better Than Yours

It was a friday, the last day of school before spring break, and for some reason I had decided that blogging was… Continue reading Happy 1 Year Anniversary!
Look, I am not an expert on this subject. In fact I’m last person you want advice from (even though I will more than willingly offer it to you). But I feel like I’ve figured a lot out in the past week. And after reading some of the things that other people have been writing… Continue reading How to be Happy

But considering how brutal this week has been for my mentality, I figured a good distraction and plunge into self-thought couldn’t be so bad. (sidenote: I have survived almost this entire week. That in itself,…
YOU GUISE! I got offered a fake ID. This means I’m officially a college student. Also, fake IDs are so expensive! What had happened was… So there’s this dude who was in my English class last semester, and he missed a bunch of classes, so one of my friends in that class gave him my… Continue reading Do You Want To Buy A Fake ID?
