I've been really weirded out lately by how stuff in my life will just fit together like a puzzle piece when I didn't even know they were part of the same puzzle. You get what I mean? 

Here are some recent examples of that: 

There's a girl on Instagram that followed me. So I did the courteous thing and followed her back. Later she posted a video tagging two friends. I clicked I'm one of the friends' page, checked her out, went back to the video. Then I clicked on the other one. That profile was private but the profile picture struck me hard as I realized that I might just know that particular person. I clicked and looked at any pictures the first girl(that I mentioned) had of her and I was astonished to realize: I did know her! How crazy is that? What's even crazier: the reason the first girl even followed me was because she'd seen me somehow through another girl I know. I was just totally weirded out. 

Another example: I saw a video by a popular South African YouTuber: Caspar Lee. The video was called Licking Vegemite. I don't know if I watched it but I did see the guy Ashton(whose name I didn't know at the time) on the thumbnail. Later I was browsing the Instagram popular page and I came across that same Ashton person. I thought "Well he is pretty cute, I'll follow him." So I did. That's not all though. Later I had watched a video by another YouTuber, this one Australian, this one named Troye Sivan. He did a cover to a song called Heartbreak Girl by a band called 5 Seconds of Summer. I thought the song was pretty nice but that was it. Later still, I was browsing Ashton's Instagram and I came across a comment that said something about 5 Seconds of Summer and I was like "Wait, what, is he part of 5 Seconds of Summer?" Turns out, yes he is, he's the drummer.     

So yeah, that's just my little weird puzzle piece life. It seems Instagram has played a part in them both. 

Anyway, I think that's it for now. My weekend was pretty good, friends came over on Saturday, just chilled and watched Modern Family on Sunday, it was nice. How was your weekend whoever happens to be reading this? 

Well this is officially it, signing off for now, bye, annyeong, ma'a salaama, sayonara, adieu, adiós!!!

P.S. October 1st is tomorrow, crazy right? I'm kinda excited though because the awards ceremony is in less than two weeks! I really can't wait. I'm hoping and hoping that InshaAllah one of us wins, just one is all. To me it doesn't even matter who of us, just at least one of us. It would be so awesome and it'd mean a lot.

Life as I Know It

Well this past Saturday was the last event on my schedule. We went to the Mint Museum of Art to tour the fashion collection which we had actually already seen during the reception but it was cool to get to see it again. Plus I got a picture this time: 

This dress was so hype and the whole time we kept saying how it'd make a great overgarment. 

We also had a barbecue yesterday with my grandparents and it was really nice. We had perfectly spiced kebabs, pasta salad, and even something new: deep fried broccoli! It was all very delicious. Except for the fact that my mother decided to put zucchini and squash on the kebabs and I really don't like zucchini or squash but oh well.

Anyway, now that all that is over, I'm feeling kinda empty. I'm gonna go back to life as I know it: humdrum, repetitive, same-old, same-old. 

I mean, yeah I have homework now but that doesn't take very long to finish. So I'm just gonna pass my day as usual. Which actually is fine as long as it doesn't get boring and overly repetitive. 

I'm gonna stop complaining now. I still have a lot to do and I'm glad for it and I should be. Besides, I don't need to be super busy, it gets hectic. 

So I was thinking, I should see what events are coming up in the Library schedule. I probably won't make it to a lot of them but at least if I know I have something to look forward to, I will feel like my schedule is full and that's satisfying. 

Sorry, today's blog is not very fun or funny, just thoughtful. Just a little insight into my mind. Hope you at least somewhat enjoyed it. :D 

That's pretty much it, signing off for now, bye, ma'a salaama, sayonara, au revoir, adiós, annyeong!!!

Oh No!

Oh no! I totally forgot! Yesterday I was supposed to write another post of my weekly blog! I am sorry to whoever reads this and waits every week for a new update in my life(which is probably point blank no one anyway). 

So, anyway, here I am today! I will continue posting on Mondays but just for today it'll be a Tuesday post. 

So, as you well know if you've been reading my blog: Saturday was the Fashion Show!! It was pretty awesome. I kinda wish that they did my model's hair different so she could wear the hood I made which had some totally badowl spikes but whatever. I completely loved the outfit Laila made for me which is funny because I didn't at first. It grew on me though and I was glad to be wearing it and walking the runway with it on. 

Sunday we were supposed to chill and we did for a while before we decided to go and have dinner with my grandparents and aunties. 

Yesterday was sort of a chill day too but later we went to drop Jawaad off at practice and to the library. You'll never guess what though: Jibreel drove us! It was just all kids in the car, Jibreel driving, no parents. That was so crazy to me but I know it probably won't be the last time. 

So remember last week when I said we were supposed to start homeschooling back up but we didn't? Well we actually ended up doing so later. We didn't really do any work but we got everything situated such as books and notebooks and stuff. 

So back on the topic of the fashion show, we will not see who won until October 10th so on the plus side we have time to chill but on the down side: we have to wait nearly a whole friggin' month!!! Ah, patience my dear self, patience. :D

So yeah, that's pretty much it. I would do an OOTD but I'm not really wearing much. Just a fancy green shirt and white jeans. I look pretty cute though. Sunday's OOTD was way better and I loved it. It was a jean vest over a white 3/4 sleeved shirt that I've mentioned before, a green skirt and jeggings. Accessories were my Claire's earcuff and a plain stud in the other ear and my only two rings: the black and white one I made and the fake gold ruby one. I also kinda shared my ootd on Instagram so yeah, you know I loved it. 

Well that's definitely it, signing off for now, au revoir, annyeong, sayonara, adiós, bye, ma'a salaama!!!

Fashion Show Jitters and OOTD

Hello!! I'm back for my weekly blog!

So there have been a lot of times this past week when I wanted to just blog but then I remembered that I have a system and you're probably wondering: "Then why not a daily blog?" It's because I don't really want to write about my day every day. I don't even write in my diary every day. In fact, I probably haven't wrote in it in weeks. Anyway, my blog consistency is not that important compared to: 


I'm so nervous. The fashion show is on Saturday. The kick-off is tomorrow. I'm still unsure as to whether we're going to the kick-off or not but I'm so so nervous. 
I really hope my outfit kicks butt. 

Speaking of my outfit, yesterday we went to Paul Mitchell the School again because the models had a mandatory workshop and we weren't sure if we were supposed to be there or not. So it turned out that we weren't but watching the models walk was fun. I even got to see my own model walk. It was pretty awesome. 

So today we're supposed to go and get our tickets for the fashion show. I'm really so nervous you just don't know. 

I still actually haven't finished my outfit but I will be completing that this week. Hopefully before Friday at the latest. 

So today is one of those days when I like to share my OOTD: Outfit of the Day. My outfit today isn't spectacular but I really like it. 

I'm wearing a black turtleneck, a dress that has a black and white striped top but a black bottom, and black leggings. 
For accessories I have my new ear cuffs from Claire's on and my gloves that Laila made me, the ones with the chains. So yeah, like I said, nothing really fancy just really cute. :) 

So that's about it. Today we were supposed to start homeschooling up again. However, I'm glad we haven't. The fashion show coming up is stressful enough without having homework to worry about. 

So yeah, signing off for now, sayonara, annyeong, au revoir, adiós, ma'a salaama, byeeee!!!

Hey anyone and everyone reading this! I'm back for my now weekly blog(yes, in case you haven't noticed, I've got a system now :D)

So today I'm talking about shopping. Yup, good old shopping. I'm one of those girls that actually like to shop. My only problem is I haven't the money to do such so I mostly just "window" shop. In the mall I actually window shop, like literally because I just walk through with my family(in search of a certain destination of course) and we pass a lot of stores with cool clothing displays in the window and my sister and I point out our favorites to each other. 

Anyway, starting this month, we are going to actually get an allowance/shopping fee of $50. How it goes is: we get $50 each month to buy any clothes we need for the month or if we don't feel we need any clothes for that month we just get the whole $50. Honestly I only have $14 of that $50 left(yes, even though I just got it). It's because I've been really needing bras and so this was my chance. However I only ended up getting one and it was $20. So after that $30 left right? Well because Claire's system is messed up plus Claire's is expensive anyway. I ended up paying $16 at Claire's. So that's how I have only $14 left. The good thing is that I got some things I really needed/wanted. I got the bra in my size, perfect fit and I got ear cuff earrings which are über cute and I love them do I'm cool. I also got a spike bracelet to cut up so I can put the spikes on my hood for the fashion show. So all is well and good and if I can keep the $14 or at least most of it until next month  then I'll have $64. Actually $74 including some money left over from Eid. 

So that's pretty much it, signing off for now, bye, annyeong, salaams, adiós, au revoir, sayonara!!!
