Holiday Havoc

Assalaamualaikum Wa Rahmtullahi Wa Baraktuh,

I am so unbelievably sorry for delaying my posts! I have recently started college, and you know first week back is always cray cray. Just to let you know, and even if you dont care, I will tell you :P. I am doing A2 English Lit, AS Sociology, AS History. Suprise suprise I am doing all the writing subjects. Ye can tell I like writing. ALSO I will be making videos for YouTube! SORRY I have been busy! I plan to make a hijab tutorial and college advice video, so keep posted! InshaAllah!

Okay! So todays post will have to be about Holidays. I have to! To help my fellow workers/schoolers..bla di bloo.
If you have a holiay or one coming up, these are tips!

-Get organised! Do not leave the whole break packed with going out and having fun! Use your time wisely!
Make time for lectures, prayer and revision! AND if you have no revision because you work then stimulate your brain with books, puzzles or activities(Throughout the break!)

In Islam we are meant to be productive!

Imam Al-Ghazali, “[Time] is nothing other than your life, and your life is the capital that you make use of to reach perpetual felicity in the proximity of Allah (swt).”

This does not mean everyday is ISLAM ISLAM ISLAM. You can relax sometimes!

-USE productive muslim w/s ! THEY ARE AMAZING! You should defo visit their site!

- Use this break as an opportunity to fast! Optional fasts are much easier during breaks! Mainly because you dont have work or school to distract you or take your energy. Remember the optional fasts? Check this post for more information!

-Use the holiday to educate yourself! Not only islamically but academically aswell! If you dont like reading, watch a documentary, or maybe a game? Try it out!
Visit a musuem! Or historical places!

-Try taking a walk?! Or visiting a quiet place! Ponder on Allah(SWT)'s creation! See my post for more info!

Lastly have fun! Enjoy your break while it lasts!
If you feel like your holiday is dragging on why not attend online seminars?
Visit this website to check some out!

Okay! So thats it have fun! And I know everyones back to work/school but I thought I would share my post-holiday thoughts! KEEP in mind for next holiday I guess!

Happy music

Life takes us through so many hurdles, so many journeys so many discoveries of ourselves. Do we ever just sit and think about how we came to be the person that we are now? I know I have been through a whirlwind of different personalities, different phases, feelings, thoughts, dreams. However I have remained somewhat constant- what I admire about myself is that I believe in myself (not necessarily my abilities) but I believe and support my actions regardless, and ... I'm glad I have strong principles, I guess it makes me who I am. Despite what I've had to sacrifice for them.Over the years I've always wondered who I'd be. In fact when I was younger I would dream of how I would be when I was older. (Older being past 20's) I'd imagine I would magically transform into this strong, independent, accomplished woman. And it would somehow come to be at this magical transition to adulthood. Oh how I would tell myself it's not that simple. Life is not that simple. We n…

Capturing my heart

I've been watching 13 reasons why on Netflix. It's been an interesting journey of suicidal thoughts and the teenage angst in high school. I feel enlightened to a certain degree (bearing in mind it is for entertainment) I feel like the message Hannah passes on to Clay is very similar to the one Virginia Woolf wrote to her husband before she committed suicide. I can't help but feel there's so much tragic beauty to these notes, so much beautiful poetry. I've always said there's so much beauty to sadness.       But you need to be here if I’m going to tell           my story. If I’m going to explain why I did what I did. Because you aren’t every other guy — you’re different. You’re good. And kind. And decent. And I didn’t deserve to be with someone like you. I never would. I would’ve ruined you. It was me and everything that’s happened to me."
(13 reasons why: Hannah's message to Clay )       Dearest,       You have given me the greatest possible            …

What im grateful for

I must say my post titled '23% complete' is one of my good posts, I don't know what's a bad post of mine (with no arrogance intended) maybe the posts where I'm not thinking enough or encouraging my readers to think more? Anyhow I've been at placement for about a week now and I can honestly say I've learnt a lot. I've learnt practical skills but that's not what I wanted to talk about. I wanted to talk about how grateful I am to be in a career where I can impact lives' daily, I sincerely hope I am helping others even in the smallest way. I am grateful to be able to listen to others who have not been heard by society for a long time, those who are deemed as 'old' or 'forgotten' , I feel privileged to listen and provide comfort. I am grateful that I can aid others in their difficulties and make them feel better, because everyone needs to feel better sometimes. I am grateful to be that someone who can make a difference when I had noon…
