So with a few days to go til my bsl lvl 102 exam, I’m doing fun things like revising with these kinds of videos 🙂
You may have noticed I’m back to being a hijabi, by this I mean a Muslimah (female muslim) that practices the use of hijab…
I’m happy like that, I sort of took a leave of absence from it for a while after I got out of hospital, which goes to show that all sorts of people can have bouts of low or high iman. Alhamdulilah though (All praise is due to God), I’m working my way back to this deen.
Like nowadays, I like to hang out at the masjid when I can, and it’s actually (well obviously) a nice place to hang. I’ve made some new friends out of the sisters I see there on a regular basis. I love having muslimahs for friends because in a way the encourage you towards what is good, not only in matters of this world, but in the next one. May Allah bless them and give them Barakah ameen.
Anyway I’m pleased with the way things are going Alhamdulilah, May I, and you always be content ameen
Crosspost from my Lj
Discovered this poem thanks to Gayle Forman … Read “where she went” over the weekend.
But as I mentioned on my Instagram I’m thinking of doing a couple of posts on poetry.
Having studied English literature during my a levels I have a soft spot for reading, analysing and enjoying poetry.
What are your thoughts on this poem and poetry in general?
I’m not a particular fan of Hannah Montana, but I have been known on the occasion, to sit down with my younger ones and watch a couple episodes. I may have even enjoyed those few episodes. 🙂 I do tend to listen a bit more to what the characters say, then what they do. Drama, is interesting and there are different mediums that are used to get messages across.
The first part of this title’s post, is from one of ‘Hannah’s’ songs. Life is what you make it.
To some extent I agree, how you approach things is important. The way you tackle something can make it easier or harder.
Take shopping with your parents for example. Too much mouthing off on your part can make the experience a very arduous one (speaking from experience 😛 ), but joking a bit and doing what needs to get done, maybe helping to get different products from further aisles can make the experience a far more fun and positive excursion.
For me personally, I still believe in what I refer to as Qadr, divine decree. Of curse it is important how you approach things, it’s very important. In fact that’s called intention. Our intention behind things matter. What’s our purpose?
That’s one of the questions I want to ask myself this academic year. What is my purpose? Why am I doing this degree?
To remind myself, I’ll probably look back at this post. So I might as well write down the main answer to my question.
First and foremost may intention is to please my Creator. I want to utilise the degree in a way that it can be counted as an act of ibadah. So in order for me to do that I have to make sure I do the best I can in this degree. I want to use it in a way that helps people. At this juncture I’m not sure if that means being a lawyer, or any other job that a law degree enables. However the degree will give me OPTIONS. I love options. They lead to opportunities 😉
I’ve been given a second chance at my first year, and I cannot afford to waste it.
Economically speaking, I have less supply (of resources) than I have demand (for use of said resources). So, I’m going to have to give some stuff up. It’s funny I’m still able to apply the basic rules of opportunity cost, and I can tell you why.
It’s because I enjoyed it. I really did enjoy it, because learning about it was fun. I approached economics with that mindset, it’s just something i need to make sure I remind myself. I do enjoy learning. 🙂
Okay, I’m going now, I have some stuff to do, and yes one of those things does include reading about Gibson v Manchester City Council (I actually remember the case name yay! 🙂 )
Take care party people
