Daily30: Seek to Love, and Not to be Loved.

Posted in Daily30, Life Thoughts

Assalamualaikum,

First of all, apologies for not posting anything for the past two days. I was working at the Sureworks Education Fair in Mid Valley Exhibition Centre, and I was swamped after talking to dozens parents and students about their future with Monash Malaysia. I did, however, get some good conversation out of my encounters with a few of the people I met, so I’ll be writing about that soon insyaAllah.

Since I was working for the past two days, I took a day off from work today to rest at home. Man, it felt good to sleep in and catch up on much needed sleep. I also took my grandmother (from my Dad’s side) to PPUM for a check up, and on our way there, she imparted some words of wisdom that I felt I need to share (or at least write it down for myself to remember in the future).

Daily30: Letting things go.

Assalamualaikum,

I took a day off yesterday because my brain couldn’t function well enough to write a blog post. For today’s post, I posted a poll on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter – asking my friends to help me decide whether today’s post would be on something light & fun, or deep & personal.

So here I am, 10-something at night, cracking my head at what to write about. So naturally, me being me, I Googled stuff. “Deep topics to write about”. A bunch of websites came up and all, all listing different topics and blog posts ideas and whatnots. I read through a couple, and found one website that had something I kind of enjoy, and felt like, okay, let’s do this. While in the back of my mind, there’s this nagging thought that says “dude you’re so going to regret writing about this“, but oh well. Here goes nothing.

When have you given up on something?

Daily30: Dear 16-year old Me

Assalamualaikum,

I forgot to put up a poll for today’s topic, so here’s a quick, random one that I can think of for tonight. This is inspired by so many posts on the internet where people share letters to their past self, and I thought of doing one myself too, of what I would tell my younger self if I could go back in time (to 8 years ago, to be specific) (oh crap now you know my age).

This is 16-yo me, who had just recently discovered the joy of smiling with her teeth showing. And yes, she was wearing braces at that time.
