hi. apa khabar?

Welcome to my blog. I hope you'll find something that you can relate to. Who knows, there could be other souls out there who think a little too much and feel a little too deeply, just like me. 

Tired, but smiling.

Tired, but smiling.

Here's a sneak peak of how my mind looks right now:


I've been SO tired lately. 

Setting up interviews, travelling, uni, working out in between so that my body doesn't explode... 

You know when you've so much to do that you can't help but feel antsy?

That's how I've been feeling! 

No amount of sleep seems to be enough anymore.


In spite of the chaos which is my life, I'm truly grateful. I say that because when I put everything in perspective, I'm in a good place. I've been making it a habit to thank God for every hardship I go through these days. I just feel relieved every time I do. 

There's only so much good things you can have in life. I always try to assure myself that no one can have eeeverything and I shouldn't ever want everything. Because having everything doesn't guarantee anything

You know, I've a diary which I write in as regularly as I can, but with everything that's been going on, even that's being neglected. 

Oh, I was in Istanbul over the weekend for a 2-day conference on 'The Assessment of Islamophobia in The Media". Needless to say, it was a very informative and interesting event. I've gotten to know some very lovely journalists, academics and made some Turkish friends! 

I'm going to have to cover that event in a separate blog post so until then, be patient. 

P.S: My graphics tablet's been dysfunctional so I've been using my Macbook's touchpad to make my illustrations. I apologise for the overly simplistic doodles. I tried. 

Busy busy busy
