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.
My life hasn’t been very funny lately, and I was debating whether or not I should even keep this blog up. But I like the concept of it. I really like what it used to be, but then life got a little to busy and a little sad and kinda boring, so I didn’t post… Continue reading *Nervous Laughter*

And somehow that makes it a little easier. Almost as if being nice has become something rebellious. Everyone just wants to push your buttons.
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.
I don’t even know why I’m posting this on here. But I was outside looking at some flowers. I thought a really fat bug must have landed on my arm or something so i flicked it off. It wasn’t a bug. It was a poo. Im so mad. Thats what I get for going outside.… Continue reading I GOT POOPED ON
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
