Surviving the Madness

Hufflepuff FTW?

“Huh? Seriously? Hufflepuff? Oh well, At least it’s not Slytherin”. Those were my thoughts when I got Sorted into Hufflepuff House on Pottermore. Zain jokes that it makes sense seeing as the Fat Friar is the house ghost. (Well, he better be joking!) But then I read the Welcome Letter and it sort of made sense. Hufflepuffs are trustworthy and loyal. We don’t shoot our mouths off, but cross us at your peril; like our emblem, the badger, we will protect ourselves, our friends  ...

An Eid Blog

Yes, yes, I realise Eid was a few days ago but I was honestly so kus I couldn’t even put my thoughts into words. Also, I was lazy. Eid was quite relaxed. I love that I get to go to Eid salaah in the mornings. I wasn’t ever able to before I was married because mornings were always so  ...

Prepping for Eid

Ramadaan is coming to an end rapidly. Where did the month go? It always goes so fast. Always! So now my brain is buzzing with all the things I need to get ready for Tuesday/Wednesday (depending on when the new moon is sighted). It always gets a bit technical for me now. Doing calculations to  ...

Lazy blog

As a child, teenager and even all through campus it took minimum effort for me to stay thin. In fact I hardly thought about it and thanked God for my high metabolism. And now a few years and a whole lot of kilograms later, I find it difficult to commit to any form of exercise. I start off with  ...

A Weekend of Sickness

“Uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurgh! Make the snot go away”, I said to the lovely lady behind the pharmacy counter on Friday afternoon. She gave me two boxes of drugs: one to clear the snot, the other to clear the flu/cold that had started a party in my body. So I took some that night and again  ...

Changing it up

So because I am the actual worst blogger in the world. I’m changing the way I blog. Clearly I am not capable of blogging every single day either because I don’t have the time or the energy. Yes, energy is needed to take the unruly thoughts in my mind and spew them into coherent  ...
