i just havent found it

I quickly rushed out of there. Everyone at school didn’t know she was in a relationship, hardly anyone did except my friends. So I didn’t know why I was surprised to hear her friends didn’t know either.

It didn’t bother me most of the time that she had slept with a lot of people. I just didn’t like to hear about it and I think that was normal for anyone in a relationship. Or I wasn’t sure? Nia was my first girlfriend ever, my first friend ever, my first genuine connection to another person ever. Besides my family.

Sometimes I wondered if I hadn’t grown up the way I had, would I still be clinging onto her so tightly?

i’m so bad with words and i’m hoping someone who’s better will ‘hijack’ my post but i only just recently realized why mic was hoping uraraka would win the sports festival

i always wondered why uraraka specifically. it’s not like he picked a side for every single match. and i realized…

he probably has a soft spot for her ever since this adorable moment

the fallout ‘blacksmithing’ perk is so pathetic, it just lets you duct tape or glue things like saw blades or even a small rocket (?) onto a sledge hammer or drive nails into a baseball bat. I like a good ol nail bat as much as the next girl but give me:

  • rebar ax
  • railway spike dagger
  • crowbar pick
  • the lumberfucker saw blade blade
  • spring steel razor or stiletto
  • good ol’ file knives

Just any evidence that the people of this world actually make new things out of the wealth of readily made materials that the old world aggregated in their proxmity. Rather than just re-using things as-is or looking for eternally ‘improvised’ weapons.

I just watched the first episode of s4 skam and I’m just crying silently. 

I see the hastag #relatable so often on the internet and I dont think I’ve truly understood it until now. 

Its the most transcendent experience to see your identity expressed and represented in a way that is so familiar. It feels like home. 

In Islam we have this concept called ummah. its a bit like the french revolutionary principle of fraternite, brotherhood. Its not like the Christian idea that we’re all God’s children. Instead we share the human father Adam A.S. Ummah means every single person within the Muslim community is your brother or sister. You protect them and love for them what you love for yourself. I instantly have that connection to Sana simply through this, regardless of how practicing or not she is.

The difference is she is. I can say completely I have never seen a practicing devout Muslim depicted positively in any media platform. When we do have Muslim representation it tends to occupy two spaces. One of the terrorist, violent, radicalized, angry man. In the feminine world its of a suppressed silenced woman. If there is positive representation on rare cases the Muslim is shown without being visibly Muslim, they cant practice, and they have to mock their weird ways and fit in and assimilate with the Western world. 

Sana is neither. She is a visible representation of a woman. She has a voice. She has opinions. Her eyes speak. Which is the only thing that shows when a Muslim women wears a niqab (veil). Even if she is not wearing one, she is standing up for them. Her physical hijab and her metaphorical hijab is in practise. 

Hijab means modesty, its not just the cloth, its behavior, its a whole way of being. The way she didnt touch that man as she walked past him is such a familiar struggle to me on the tube in London. The way she isolated herself from the crowd on the subway was just so achingly recognizable. 

More than anything what moved me was the Salah (prayer). I have a similar reminder on my phone to pray Maghrib. Maghrib is our prayer that occurs when the sun sets. The way the music stopped when she entered the bathroom was when I started crying, and I havent stopped since. In my practice of Islam, music itself is frowned upon, as a distraction. That might be strange for you. But the melody of the Quran, and the soothing nature of Allah’s words is enough for us. 

I’m going to glaze over the fact that the editing of the wudhu (ablution) meant she did it wrong and it happened in the wrong order haha. The fact that they showed our ritual wash was beautiful. Islam is a religion of cleanliness and purity. The idea is that it cleanses your sins away, so you can perform prayer before your Lord.

Then they actually showed the Salah! I was so impressed. Usually films exoticise the adhaan (the call to prayer) but ignore the physical act. They actually let her recite the most important bit, and correctly. I’m guessing the actress is Muslim, which is even more wonderful. Surah Al-Fatihah is recited every day, 5 times a day at the beginning of Salah and calls for Allah to guide us to the straight path. 

Islam is not a medieval religion. We all have compasses installed in out phone, utilizing modern technologies to practice Islam. She was finding the right direction for prayer towards the Ka’ba. Every single Muslim all around the world is facing the same direction to pray. Think about how powerful that is. 

I don’t know anything about the main character, or any of the stories so I apologize if I’m misreading it. 

It’s just the girls seem like a unit,a family structure. Her “Norwegian” friends. I know this may sound insulting but in university I do the same thing: I have my English friends, my white friends, and then my isoc (islamic society) friends as separate worlds. I love them both but I interact with them differently, not that I’m fake, I just trace two different worlds precariously, and my sense of self shifts in interaction with them. 

It was just the most moving minutes of television I’ve ever watched. I’m still crying as I write this. To see somebody just like you in art is the most moving experience. I feel so empowered.
