As humans we experience and learn new things every day, which is understandable since our brain is constantly working to learn new information. We also discover new emotions throughout our lives, whether it be an emotion that we have never experienced or an emotion that is being enhanced to a greater level. I, like every other human being in this world have experienced great emotions throughout my life, and like every other human, not all emotions were enhanced at its greatest. Continue reading

I ran across this quote today,

Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.

-Steve Jobs

What got me thinking about this quote was the thought process I went through when I was quiet young, around when I was in the 5th grade. You see, whenever someone asked me the question “What do you want to be when you grow up?” I never had an answer like all the kids my age. I would hear kids say “Doctor, Vet, Police men, Firefighters” the typical thing you would expect a child to respond with. Continue reading

What do you want to be when you grow up? This is a question that every child is asked at least once. And many times the child answers the question by stating a job that his or her parents do. Other times they name a profession that the parents hope the child will grow up to be.

When I was young, I was asked that same question many times. At first, I would always answer with a simple “I don’t know?” and that caught people by surprise. Children often times speak their minds, and that is exactly what I did. Continue reading

Understanding life is complicated, on one side, you are told to do what is expected and the other side is begging you to do what your heart wants. If you do what is expected by everyone around you, you feel as if you lost yourself. However, if you follow your heart, you feel as if you betrayed everyone around you, as if you’re a disappointment.
You can’t have it both ways, unless you get lucky and what your heart wants is the exact same as what everyone else wants, but that’s not always the case.  Continue reading

I have been sick for the past week, and it has been absolute torture. I don’t get sick easily, but what sucks is that when I do get sick, it’s like my body is about ready to die. So conveniently (note my sarcasm there) my final exams have also started. The universe just hates me doesn’t it?

My last exam is today, and I am not looking forward to it. From what I have heard, this exam is pure horror and stress and I don’t doubt it one bit. So here I am, my body is drained of energy, trying to heal, while I force myself to stay awake and not faint in place.

This is an e-mail to a friend I sent because she was mad at me for not contacting her. 🙂

Hey you!
(This is the part where you say “Don’t ‘hey you’ me!” and I get scared and hide behind my teddy bear)

You have every right to be mad at me; I know that, so I’m sorry. But don’t think that it means I’m not going to give you a bunch of excuses that probably won’t even justify my lack of contact with you. Continue reading

Before I was even born, my family lived in Bangladesh, in a beautiful flat. Everything was new, and we knew no one. But soon, our neighbor from the second floor became a part of our family. It’s not easy to let people into your life, let alone find someone that becomes such a big part of it, but when you do, it’s like the world turns to an amazing place. I was born into that world, and those people became my aunt, uncle, brothers, and sisters by heart. Continue reading
