Ramadan always just creeps up on me. The year goes by so fast. In the past I was more excited about it. Not that I’m not excited and happy about it this time, but I’m not as giddy anymore. Everyone always sees Ramadan as a fresh start and a month to recharge your spiritual batteries… Continue reading Ramadan Mubarak!
I just read an article about how there’s actually no conclusive evidence that a low level of serotonin causes depression, and now I’m reevaluating my entire life. I’ve been feeling kind of down lately, which I’m prone to feeling every couple of months because, you know, happiness is fleeting and we’re all just cretins on… Continue reading Everything I know about Depression is a Lie

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
Why? Because it fuels my inferiority complex. I never used to be the type of person who wanted acceptance from other people. I had no desire to be one of the popular girls, or be the funny girl, or even have a ton of friends. And then Facebook happened. And then twitter. And then instagram.… Continue reading Social Networking Gives Me Anxiety
I’m talking about life. Is anyone else feeling this? Summer is practically over. You know what happens after that? Life happens. And I am definitely not prepared for it. I have to be an adult now.
