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!
A few nights ago I had a dream about a zombie apocalypse. I can’t quite remember all of what happened, but I remember the zombies werent bad people and they just wanted to live their lives but people were shooting them anyway. I felt really bad because they were just misunderstood but no one wanted… Continue reading I have some weird dreams
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 (?)
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*
At least, we think she was homeless. My mom and I were walking into a grocery store when a woman asked us if we could buy her something to eat. She was wearing faded denim shorts, an orange tank top, and flip flops. She looked to be in her late forties. She seemed harmless enough. Even before… Continue reading My Mom Bought Lunch For A Homeless Lady
At the end of the day, I know that I’m doing my best to be nice to people, and I recognize and accept the fact that a lot of times, people aren’t trying very hard to be nice to me. And somehow that makes it a little easier. Almost as if being nice has become something rebellious. Everyone just wants to push your buttons.
