Where I’ve been: regaining my sanity

What I’m back for: to take another try at blogging

It’s summer now where I am and this has been a really strange one indeed. I’ve received bad news and good news. I’ve cried. I’ve felt like I was losing my mind and I still feel that way now.

I’ve read a lot of books. I’ve obsessed over colleges when it’s not even college application season. I’ve felt so lost in who I am as a person, a teenager, a Muslim, and a human.

Now, I’m taking a break from SnapChat. I’m trying to cut off my addiction to my phone and instead dive into books. Dive into getting closer to my family and becoming stronger in my faith. I want to learn how to strengthen my mental capacity and learn to overcome the stress I feel on bad mental health days.

I want to accept that I’m human and that it’ll be hard sometimes but worth it.

As for blogging, I’m not even sure what I’m doing anymore, but I’ll just keep going. I’m glad to be back.

  1. Also, I was wondering if you would want to take part in my Islamic-Fiction reading challenge for the summer? It’s basically where you just need to read a minimum of one Islamic-fiction book and post about it, link your post back to my original post about it (yet to be published!).

    The point is so that we can all read more Islamic-fiction and share titles that may be less well-known to others because there isn’t much islamic-fiction out there πŸ™‚

    I wanted to ask you before I tagged you in my post πŸ™‚

    1. First off, I want to apologize for accidently deleting a message you sent. My phone spazzed out and I trashed it. Sorry!

      Second off, heeeey!! I was hoping you’d still be around because I’ve been gone for a while. Thanks for your kind comment. I’m excited to see what kind of content you produce as well!

      YAAAAAS! That idea is amazing and I’m more than excited to. I don’t know if there are any new Islamic fiction stories you have for me because I feel like I’ve read them all. Saints and Misfits, She wore red sneakers, does this make my head look big, 10 things I hate about me, etc . HECK YEAH I NEED MORE ISLAMIC FICTION!! (I’m trying to write a YA Fantasy with a Muslimah main character In Shaa Allah so I hope to contribute one day πŸ’ž)

      LET’S DO THIS!!! πŸ™‚

      1. That’s totally fine!
        You’re welcome πŸ™‚
        How about If I Should Speak by Umm Zakiyyah? It’s one of my favourite books!

        Yes same I’m trying to write an Islamic-fic book myself! πŸ™‚

        Well, I want to read Saints and Misfits, I started does my head look big in this but I really didn’t like it (how did you find it?) – I might even re-read She Wore Red Trainers because I loved it so much… I was also thinking of reading Muslim Girl by Umm Zakiyyah but when I read the sample I don’t think it is up to the quality If I Should Speak is at and I’m not sure if I will like it.
        I also think I might read Burning Boats by Zaynab Dawood and I might re-read When Wings Expand because I read it 3-4 years ago πŸ™‚
