In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.

Blimey, I thought I did the non-obligatory but somehow required first post of the year.

But nooooooope.

I really am who I am!

I hope everyone has gotten into the groove of things because I actually haven’t and we have already reached the end of week 1 of 2020.

Found out my best friend’s meemaw passed on but I don’t quite know what to do so I will offer a prayer instead. Al-Fatihah.

Okay, I’m not quite sure how to segue onto another topic. It’s not something you can bring up and drop easily.

I never quite know the right words to say given any social context.

And most of the times, I only realise how idiotic it sounds when I read my words in a different time and space.

There is clearly a lot of learning to do. I will probably never master any social skills.

And I probably don’t want to master any cooking and baking skills but I have to!


Well, in the words of another friend, “We are what we work for”.

So work hard and play harder.

And Allah is Ar-Raqib, The Watchful One. – MM
