I just cleared out my closet of all my old clothes that I don’t wear anymore. I’ll be honest, I cringed at a few of the fashion choices I thought I could pull off over the years. It’s been a while since I did a really good clean-out, and I ended up getting rid a… Continue reading Spring Cleaning
After graduation I thought I’d indulge in some well-deserved rest and relaxation before trying to find a job. Everyone was telling me to take some time off before I inevitably work until I die. Well, it’s been two months and now I’m bored out of my mind. I think the most alarming thing is that… Continue reading Unemployment is fun
**SPOILERS AHEAD** I’m going to start with my review, then I’m going to rant about how unnecessarily cruel people have been about this movie. First of all, I really liked this movie. I had low expectations going in. Not in a mean way, but like, it’s a TV movie. More specifically, it’s a DCOM. I’m… Continue reading #KimPossible and Poorly-Adjusted Millennials: A review/very long rant
I finally graduated college. Alhamdulillah. For a long time there it felt like it would never end. But now it’s over. Still, I can’t quite shake this feeling like I’m forgetting something. It feels like I have some assignment due that I’m forgetting about. Maybe it’s the subconscious acknowledgement of unemployment. I see everyone around… Continue reading Progress (?)
I’ve been wanting to make this post for years. Recent events have made me think I shouldn’t have waited so long. If you are the parent of a child who is going through this: I know it’s hard for you to understand. I know it’s a lot to take in. I know you’re worried about… Continue reading Dealing with Depression and Anxiety as a Young Muslim
This has nothing to do with the actors themselves, and everything to do with Disney being culturally insensitive. Disney announced today that they have given the roles of Aladdin, Jasmine, and the genie to Mena Massoud, Naomi Scott, and Will Smith respectively. A lot of people are upset by the fact that Naomi Scott is… Continue reading Why “Aladdin” casting is so upsetting
I can’t tell if everyone else has this problem, or if it’s just me. It’s too damn hard to find cute, modest clothes for summer. My closet is full of last year’s sweaters, a bunch of men’s t-shirts, and an embarrassing amount of plaid, none of which I can actually pull off. Most Muslim girls… Continue reading I hate fashion
I was never voted “Most likely to-” anything in high school, but I always liked the concept of superlatives. About a week ago the thought popped into my head that it’d be pretty funny to do for Ramadan. Every year we all fall into our own patterns. I will admit, I’m most likely to sleep… Continue reading Ramadan Superlatives
There’s just this overwhelming feeling of “Well, what the hell can I do about anything?” And I really don’t know.
I bought the domain “awkwardmuslimgirl.com.” I don’t know why, but I did, and here we are. Its all mine now. I’m too possessive for my own good. And really, I have no business spending money on a domain for a website that I hardly use. But I’ve spent more on things I’ve used even less,… Continue reading We’re Official!
