anger managment

So this Ramadan I'm trying to work on making myself better and one of my main things is trying to stop my anger. i get mad at the smallest things and even i admit that. but let me tell you this is probably one of the hardest things ever. like someone will do something and i'll start yelling then midway through i'll remember so i have to decide if i should continue with the yelling or switch to nice. lol i think when i switch to nice that freaks em out more. is there anything that you struggle with doing?

The rules of this award are;

•When you post your five winners, make sure you link them as well. Don't forget to let your winners know they won an award from you by leaving a comment on their blog.

My 5 current obsessions are...

1- Ice caps, these things are addicting if you're in Canada you know what i mean and if you ever visit canada you need to try one.

2- Fashion,clothing and yah did i mention fashion

3- Reading!! i love reading, enough said.

4- making a difference in the world, and not just living a life without meaning and that's a forever obsession not just a current thing

5- the beach, i love the water

I tag anyone and everyone that wants to do this

Mama, i'm in the pictures!

SO the other day while at the beach I'm sitting there under my orange towel trying to get dry when a little of from beside me comes a big group of people dressed all in white. well i was like they're either angels or people taking pictures for an ad, and i was right!! well not the angel part. so I'm sitting and these little girls are running up and down the beach while a cameraman is snapping pictures. they looked like they knew their stuff. after a while of this picture taking i realized that i was in the background of these pictures. so people if any of you happen to come upon ads with white clad people running around on the beach and theres a lady in a red hijab, purple leggings and an orange towel around herself, that's me!

I just found out that you shouldn't go in the water with brightly colored clothes because that attracts sharks, i think i attracted more people's attention though.I need a burkini that'll show 'em

last but not least RAMADAN KAREEEM!!!!!

Driving around town

we were driving by, nothing out of the usual when from the car next to us a little girl peered at me and my hijab. then two other little heads looked out from their back window watching me. i looked at them and smiled to myself at their bemusement and wonder. i waved to the little girl still watching and she waved back. just then the road forked and we parted ways, probably forever.
That really made my day, not sure why but for two people for a moment in time to have that human connection and put aside differences, ok i'm probably going all deep and overboard with this and most likely the little girl was just waving cause i waved at her and that's what kids do :P

my laptop is still sick :( so sad i don't think it will be able to fast this Ramadan with us, so sad since that would mark it's one year anniversary with me

I plan, you plan and then God puts out his plan

when at the beginning of my summer break i prayed that I'd have an amazing and memorable summer I didn't expect it to turn out the way it did.
I didn't expect my mom to get sick and go to the hospital
i didn't expect myself to be in charge of a household, cooking, laundry and the whole shebang
I didn't expect my dad to quit his job

but then i remember the ayah in the quran that goes

"But you may hate a thing although it is good for you, and love a thing although it is bad for you. God knows, but you do not know.” (2:215-216)

and then I'm like alhmdllah because at the end i came out with experiences even if it wasn't that much fun it was definitely a memorable summer and I'm closer to my parents more than before.

my laptop is sick

sorry for not posting much lately and not replying to comments it's not because of the laziness ( which i assure you i am) but my poor laptop has a virus and until i get it fixed I'll have to do with my brother's laptop. i Also just came back from vacation but can't put up pictures until i upload them to my laptop, so this might take a while. God I hate those viruses
