Poems and Stuff

Stressed! I have two papers due in the morning, and I’ve promised myself not to skip even one more class since the semester is coming to an end soon. Darn! Why, oh why, do I always procrastinate?! R’s here with her babies. They’re the cutest things, mashaAllah! After I came home last Friday, Husain ran […]

S’mores Cupcakes

Assalamualaikum wa rahmatullah! 😀 Today was a wonderful day, alhamdulillah! It was also my first day volunteering at G. Elementary School.

I mean, I guess it is good on […]

There are benefits and drawbacks to each, but I don’t know which is the best for me. After having a talk with Daddy Dearest, I definitely know I have to make […]
