Too posh lol
And the doubts start creeping in.
I think I’m too romantic to be a good muslim. I can’t stop myself from worrying that I threw away my best chance of being happy to try and find someone more ‘supportive’. I feel stupid that I didn’t realise how much I was already supported, or that feelings, situations, people can change, and just because it didn’t work right now, doesn’t mean to say that...
My New Year started on 18th December 2012
Well I have been a little MIA on the writing front of late, but I have good reason. It’s now been 20 days, almost to the minute, since I converted to Islam. And not a lot has changed. Not that I was expecting it to, since I had already been making gradual changes before actually taking my shahada, but everybody asks me “what changes do you have to make to be Muslim? Is it...
I do not like being ill
Looks like I’m going to have to stock up on those immune boosting vitamins, soft and chewy num num
Modify your approach please!
I know ultimately everything we’re learning is important, but honestly when she speaks I just hear “blah blah blah BLAHHH”. Most of my class are in their mid/late 40s (I’m one of the youngest, which is a strange feeling these days) and she has us designing posters to stick around the room that a) nobody else will ever see and b) don’t count at all towards any task we...

poeticislam: Did anyone watch the latest ‘Horizon: How Big is the Universe’ on BBC Two? I am telling you that is one show to watch. It’s actually awesome, me and my brother were literally in awe. Subhan’Allah, we truly are nothing compared to what’s out there. If you can, watch it. We are just one tiny planet in our Solar System, and our Solar System is just one member of a vast Milky Way...
Everything will be okay in the end...
I think things might be starting to work out, inshallah Happy faces =] =]

This is the great English Summer we’re all used to.

The meaning of my dreams, revealed in vague detail
That dream where you’re running around in your wedding dress looking for a toilet, and Kate Middleton does some weird things with her mouth and tells you she’s joining the X-Men. Broken down, this is what I think it all means, or at least what the internet has told me… I’m going through a spiritual learning experience. I’m evaluating my personal relationships. I...
Give me my hair back
All my beautiful dead hair… gone…
Are you going home?!?!

Four minutes in to a BBC documentary about Mitt Romney and Mormonism and already I’ve heard Sabotage and Paint It Black. And right on cue there are the attractive young men, this could be my favourite documentary ever… (sorry Helvetica http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0847817/, Shine A Light http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0893382/, and Stephen Fry with your Gutenberg press...
I dreamt last night that all my hair was falling out. The internet told me this is because I’m scared of dying and also that I’m losing my sex appeal =[ I mean I didn’t really have that much to start with, but I suppose I might need it in the future. Please can I have it back? And my hair too. I don’t want to be bald, not even in my sleep.
I loved you in the best way possible
Dear Mum and Dad
I was going to send you out for a nice meal, but since you’re bickering like a couple of children, you’re going to marriage counselling instead. Yeah that’s right, no steak and wine for you two, I’m paying £40 for you to go bitch at each other for an hour. My treat. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY (if you even make it that far).
Are you afraid of the dark? No, I'm afraid of...
There is a lot of crazy shit that scares me. Of course there are the obvious things, like spiders, open steps, public speaking etc, but these make me sound full on mental. This is a list of things that freak me the fuck out, and possibly a bit of an explanation as to why… some of them I have no idea… Fish. I know exactly where this comes from. Blackpool Sealife Centre. “SOPHIE,...
35 dresses. Thirty five. When did I become such a girl? Tidying up is no fun, so I’m going to play Rome: Total War instead. Going in hard with my phalanx. Oof.
Sorry but bitch be trippin'
http://www.tmz.com/2012/07/24/james-holmes-lawsuit-shooting/ I have every sympathy for this guy after what he has been through and what happened to his friend, but trying to sue Warner Bros. for the movie’s ‘violent content’ is just fucking ridiculous and just another example of what I dislike about American culture. This guy chose to go see the film, presumably he had some...
