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 was going to tell you about the creepy guy from my biology class, and also maybe rant about the new twilight book, but that can all wait. Look at this purse. Isn’t it beautiful? I found it online a couple days ago, and when I saw it for 50% off i fell in love… Continue reading This is very upsetting.
*sigh* I think I might have touched on this before but not in depth. The point is: I’ve got this little thing called jealousy. Its been a very real problem for me for most of my life, especially in the past couple years. I’ve always had this need to feel adequate. I never wanted to… Continue reading Satisfaction not Guaranteed: Experiences
In my Gender and Women’s Studies class, we were discussing the topic of sex tourism. This girl was explaining the concept to me very politely, while her male friend sat between us and listened. If you are unfamiliar with sex tourism, it is commodification of having a sexual experience with an “exotic” partner. Sorta. Basically… Continue reading Does My Disinterest in Sex Offend You?
I have never understood Christian holidays. Especially since everything has become a gift-giving holiday, but nothing confuses me more than Easter. If someone would be kind enough to explain it to me, I’d be more than happy to listen. But for now, here’s what I just don’t understand. Jesus “died for our sins” on the… Continue reading A Confused Muslim’s View of Easter
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
This post is long overdue. This morning I was running late for the bus (…as usual) and somehow I got all red lights on the way to the bus stop. Now, this bus will take you from this particular stop, to all the way to my school. And I take the last bus going inbound.… Continue reading Why I Hate Public Transportation
I’m sitting alone in my room doing nothing. Usually the fan is on or I’m listening to music or I can hear what’s going on downstairs but my door is closed and its so quiet in here. And its Driving. Me. Nuts. I can hear my clock ticking. I can also hear my three watches… Continue reading Silence Will Make You Insane
I survived my first week of college, but I totally wasn’t prepared for it. EXPECTATION: I’m gonna make so many friends! REALITY: I eat lunch alone every day. Not a single person has spoken to me all week. I’ve also found that I have zero interest in making friends with these idiots. EXPECTATION: I’m gonna… Continue reading Expectations Versus Reality: College
Do I even need a reason? They’re little monsters. Yesterday we had an impromptu graduation party for my cousin and I. It was…interesting. My cousins brought along their cousin. She’s five years old and she’s an over privileged little twerp. We didn’t want them to make a mess in our bedrooms, so my sister and… Continue reading Why I Hate Children
