I know I have been posting funny depression memes and at first I was laughing really hard at them. But due to the events that occurred today, I think I might seriously be at risk for depression.
I just spent the last hour crying in my bed. Which I know I joke about doing twenty- four seven. Most of the time I just lay in bed and sad thoughts come and go. Then poof, I feel better later.
But this was a legitimate breakdown in witch for a split second I though about ending my life. I’m still a little in shock from what just happened. I know that suicide is never the answer. But at that moment…
I was acting completely irrational and I would never do such a thing.
However, I can’t draw. I can’t even draw Bliz it’s that bad. Drawing is literally the only thing that puts my mind at ease at the end of the day. (That and dnb off course) But for the past three day, I’ve had this small feeling of dread in the back of my mind. Today’s events just sent me over the edge. Now, I’ve lost interest in drawing.
Not gonna lie. I have always displayed aspects of clinical depression. ( lack of sleep, dismissive interest in most things, impaired concentration, exc.) My parents always kept a close eye on me. However, I was still interested in some things. (drawing, anime, video games)
But over the course of my first and second second semester, I no logger watch anime or play video games. Now that I have lost interest in drawing, this is serious.
It hasn’t been long enough to be classified as clinical depression. But it is prevalent in my family. I’m going to try and find one of those assist groups on campus and see if they can help me. Maybe even call my parents about this before it escalates any further. I really want to get better.
I’m also not doing to good in school right now. Going to try and put more focus into my studies to bring up my grades.
That being said, I’m going to be a little distant from now on. I’ll still reblog stuff to keep my blogs somewhat active. But art wise, I don’t know yet. Might hop on streams to watch other people draw.
For those of you that followed me for Cyber0 and Bliz, I’m really sorry. I’ll continue them as soon as this passes.
He was an avid Potter fan, and expressed his passion partly by working at Universal Orlando Resort in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter - Hogsmeade as a ride attendant on Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey.
He lost his life today due to the tragic events which took place in Orlando last night.
Events like this, and people like Luis, remind us that it is more important than ever to practice love, bravery, and friendship every single day.
I pray this reaches you all in the best of health and Imaan.
You asked for it; and now it’s back!
Only this time; Even better!
AcquiringKnowledge has set out to make the new academic year of 2015-2016 even more exciting!
Introducing the brand new design and layout for The Ultimate Planner For A Muslim Student!
As a student myself, I know it can be difficult to balance both out deen and dunya life. With assignments and courseworks and multiple deadlines to meet, we often forget our daily Qur’an recitation, or have panic attacks during exam time because we forgot our study duas.
This is where our student planner comes in! Not only can you record your homework/deadlines from your secular studies; but also your Alimiyyah/Madrassa studies!
Let’s take a closer look insha’Allah:
This is our brand new design for the front cover. We will have two front cover designs to choose from insha’Allah for the hardcopy. Alternatively, you could visit our etsy shop and buy a digital copy with an option to get your own personalised cover! (Don’t worry muslim brothers; you don’t have to opt for the feminine cover)
And our contents page!
Next, we have our ‘Note from AcquiringkKnowledge’ and the ‘Personal Data’ section. This is brand new for this year and in the event you lose your planner; Insha’Allah it will find it’s way back to you.
Turn over and we have our ‘Duas for Studying.’ This has been placed at the beginning of the planner for easy navigation but also to remind ourselves, we can only succeed with the help of Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala. Insaan in forgetful; and this planner is designed to remind.
This is our brand new weekly layout page. Our decision to incorporate scenery and some of the Wonders of the World: “Indeed in that are signs for a people who give thought.” (Quran, 13:3)
The weekly layout page is spread over two double pages. This is to ensure you have plenty of room to record all your homework from both secular and deen studies on the right hand side whilst having enough space for reminders, Due today and events today.
Zooming in a little further and we have our signature ‘Duas of the Week’ section. These duas have been taken from the 40 Rabbanas and are included for reflection, action and memorisation!
Once we complete the 40 Rabbanas, we begin the ‘Hadith of the Week’ - a compilation of short hadiths also for memorisation taken from the famous Zaad ut Talibeen (Provisions for the seekers)
Each day also has a Daily Qur’aan Memorisation and Recitation tracker to remind us to take out a couple of minutes to give time to Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala and His Book.
I once read somewhere; Give time to Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala and Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala will give you time!
We have also added a ‘Notes’ section and ‘Exams of the week’ section to record all upcoming tests and exams.
And our ‘Drops of Knowledge’ section at the beginning of every month for reflection.
A monthly view has also been added for forward planning and reminders.
Our brand new ‘Books to Read’ section. This is pretty self-explanatory; I mean, who doesn’t love reading? And the fact that Allah subhanahu wa ta’ala revealed the first word of ‘Iqra’ (read) to Nabi
ﷺ shows us the importance of seeking knowledge.
And for all us University/College students: Our ‘Assignment/Coursework and Assigned Reading’ tracker!
This is just some of the features included!
Others include: Dua List, Notes section, To Do section (long term), Contact pages and much more!
Alhamdulillah, this planner is now available for Pre-Order! Contact details will be given below.
Please Like/Share/Reblog for a chance to be entered into our upcoming GIVEAWAY insha’Allah.
More details will be posted soon so watch this space!
Stock is limited so hurry and pre-order yours now before they’re all sold out!
Please remember us, our families and the whole ummah in your duas.
Summary: Phil believes he already met his soul mate, his best friend Jake who he’s known since they were 9 and share literally everything in common with. They can’t wait to be able to start communicating in their dreams when they turn 18, but when Phil turns 18 first and finds out Jake isn’t really his soul mate, how will he be able to cope?
Fell off my post-a-day pace due to a protracted series of unfortunate events. That should change today. In the meantime enjoy these goofy wallpapers I made of the inimitable Faker of SKT T1 after he lead his team to a perfect OGN Champions Winter season. Truly the king of League.
Side note: Montecristo retweeted these and it made my fucking life.
There is no yoga class at the park today due to the events of the last yoga class that completely leveled the entire park itself and turned the sky a shade of purple deemed illegal ever since. So today’s yoga class will be in the individual cells of each yoga trainee where you will await further questioning, be under strict surveillance, and entirely chained from head to toe and suspended from the ceiling.
No but can we talk about the relevance of Harry posting lyrics to Black or white though, seriously, some parts of the songs are really interesting
They print my message in the Saturday Sun I had to tell them I ain’t second to none And I told about equality And it’s true, either you’re wrong or you’re right
But, if you’re thinkin’ about my baby It don’t matter if you’re black or white
I am tired of this devil I am tired of this stuff I am tired of this business Sew when the going gets rough I ain’t scared of your brother I ain’t scared of no sheets I ain’t scared of nobody Girl, when the going gets mean
Protection For gangs, clubs and nations Causing grief in human relations It’s a turf war on a global scale I’d rather hear both sides of the tale See, it’s not about races Just places, faces Where your blood comes from is where your space is I’ve seen the bright get duller I’m not going to spend my life being a color
Don’t tell me you agree with me When I saw you kicking dirt in my eye But, if you’re thinkin’ about my baby It don’t matter if you’re black or white
Okay I’m not saying anything I’m not even about analysing things, this could be just Harry listening to Michael at 4am because he can’t sleep. What I’m saying is that it’s really really really interesting that he posted it today, due to recent events. Not making a point here, just thought it was (then again) interesting.
So I was looking up something and I saw an old anti Irish propaganda drawing and it sent me to this blog. I saw people commenting that white Irish people aren't discriminated against today, when in fact they still are due to current events and for being Catholic. So denying that my people were called "lazy Irish lackeys" who were treated as jokes for centuries is like racist white people denying bad things that happened to Black people in a way. I'm against racism and all, so let's cut the crap
When will y'all let these “what about the Irish” insertions die? Like you took a convo that was most likely about Irish Americans and tied to compare it to anti-black racism, gtfo with that shit.
Happy (Very Late) Valentine to @rionydal. I’m your ML Valentine exhange <3
So sorry it took so long for this to be done. I had a super busy weekend due to some school events and back to back assignments due yesterday and today. This is also my second time actually doing a full art piece on Photoshop and I can honestly say that I’m happy with how it came out (shading still sucks a bit. Someone one PM a shading tutorial to save my skin!). We are both MariChat fans so I did this little piece. Really happy with how Chat Noir came out.
Ban Ki-moon stands in solidarity with the people of Paris who are unable to join a climate march today.
The Secretary-General has donated a pair of his “marching shoes” to be placed at the city’s Place de la République, near the scene of the terror attack of Friday 20 November, and where the climate march originally planned for today was due to start.
After this event, the thousands of shoes contributed will be donated to NGOs working with Syrian refugees.
