Daily30: What Makes Me Happy?

Posted in Daily30, Personal

Assalamualaikum,

Today’s Daily30 post is inspired by an anonymous question I received on my Ask.fm account, and since I’ve left it unanswered for more than a month, I figured that it deserves a pretty solid answer in the form of a 30-minute blog post.

What’re the things that make you happy?

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.

Daily30: I’ve been promoted!

Posted in Daily30, Personal

Assalamualaikum,

First of all, I apologize for skipping today’s topic of Fresh Grads Tips (as chosen by voters on Twitter). Since I’ve just been promoted to a new ‘position’,  I figured that today is a special day that deserves its own post.

Daily30: From Actuarial Science to Higher Education.

Assalamualaikum,

Hello again. For today’s Daily30 blog challenge (yes, that’s what we’re calling it now), I actually did a poll on Twitter to find a topic to write about. The topics I put up in the poll were either posts I’ve been meaning to write, or things people asked me on Ask.fm (but were never answered yet), or just things I found on random blog-posts-ideas on Google. And the good thing is, they’re pretty broad, so I can write about anything I want related to them.

52 Twitter-ers (?) (+3 people who voted via Instagram) have spoken.
