September Wrappers

Hey girl hey. And boy.

October already?! I can’t believe it’s been a month of school but I’m low-key loving it so far! I thought I’d be that lonely potato like last year but I’m actually liking the atmosphere and people there. I’m not exactly friends with everyone but it’s so much easier to be myself than it was at my previous school. (click here for memoriesย ๐Ÿ˜‚) We have so much to go through this month so as usual, check out my last wrapper post here if you missed it.ย  Skim through to what interests you and let’s get started.


 

School

ย It’s been a while since this section appeared.ย ๐Ÿ˜‚ย I wrote about my first day here so make sure to check it out if you haven’t already. All my teachers are really great but omg it took me a while to find my classes because there’s some upstairs and downstairs and the school is literally 4 squares.

I had to

Not even joking, I joined like 8 clubs even though I’m pretty sure I might drop some of them if assignments get hectic. Everything’s great so far to be honest (alhamdulillah). My friends, the extracurriculars, the teachers and even the people. I made a couple new friends and aah it’s much better than last year’s start.ย ย None of my old close friends are in any of my classes like great but it pushed me to meet new people so it turned out fine. That’s basically school in a nutshell but here are a few events.

One thing that bothers me is how EVERYONE is on their phone nowadays. I sound like a hypocrite because yes, I use my phone but I’m really trying to get out of the trap of obsession. I wrote a whole rant in my journal about it and I might make a short film for this film festival next year. There’s this quote in my business class that’s in the bulletin in front of my computer and it says “Be The Change You Want To See” and that really just hit me. I have business first period as well so it’s a great way to motivate me every morning lol.ย ๐Ÿ˜‚

We had picture day on the first week of school like great. I literally forgot how to smile and my picture is just fjbkdhhfjigkl. We also went to watch a football game (I know, how cliche) but it was actually pretty fun. I got to know my new friends a bit better because my old ones didn’t come like thanksss. I saw my teacher from last year there because she came to see her son and aah I miss her so much.

We had this event where we went to a camp for a day and played games which was surprisingly really fun. Except that I stubbed my toe 500 times from the tarazan activity.ย ๐Ÿ˜‚ย On that same day, we had a muslim club event at Skyzone which is basically a huge trampoline indoor park in USA and Canada. Kind of like Bounce in Dubai. It was so fun but literally no one from the club came so it was just me and my friend Raisin. I kept falling and the employees kept having to talk to us for violating rules like we were giving them more trouble than the 7 year olds.

I ALMOST FORGOT THIS but me and my science teacher literally had 10 minute back and forth’s this month. I’m the type of person to ask questions when I’m confused but I ask them specifically and I feel like I’m being really annoying but I’m trying to learn, okayyy?ย ๐Ÿ˜‚ย I’d ask something and he’d be like yeah but why is that? and I’d clear up the question and it’s just this whole thing back and forth. And omg if you don’t pay attention in Science, he just stares at you and smiles like thankfully it didn’t happen to me but that’s so awkward.ย ๐Ÿ˜‚

my science teacher tired of my questions

AND speaking of awkward and science, my mom called like two times in the middle of two classes. The first time, we were doing an experiment so it wasn’t too disruptive but the second time, it was a quiet working period and aaah. I love when my mom calls, don’t get me wrong, but this is the first time it happens in class. And I was whispering the whole time like mamaa I’m in the middle of classss.ย ๐Ÿ˜‚

And finally, we had tableaux presentations from drama and it was so fun to make. This one was a practice but the assessments are this week (update: THE REAL ONE WENT TERRIBLE – to be continues in October Wrappers mwahaha). The lights and sound went smoothly too and ugh I wish it was assessed instead of the real one.ย ๐Ÿ˜ญย Okay maybe school wasn’t that interesting when I read over this section but I’m pretty happy with it so far. Classes go by pretty fast and my academic and social life are great so far too. Inshallah it stays that way for the rest of the year.ย ๐Ÿ˜‚

Life

ย My old neighbours moved away like whaaaat? We’ve known them for like 4 years now and literally everyone left our old neighbourhood. It was so surprising because one day there was just like we’re moving tomorrow and it was so unexpected. I really hope they find it easy because moving gets hard sometimes.

Image result for you're leaving me gif

There was a brunch fundraiser at our local mosque and it was pretty good. They had really good fries but where my samboosas at? Jk it was fun. There was also a run of palestine being held and that was actually so fun. Apparently the walk was supposed to be 1 km but EVERYONE went 5 km and they didn’t say otherwise so I was stuck being a turtle. I walked most of the way so I didn’t die…yet.ย ๐Ÿ˜‚ย We got free shawarma after and it felt really good to participate for a cause.

I got my hair done with proteinnn! It’s basically a protein treatment to make your hair soft (even after showers..it’s a miracle guys) for 8 months. I got it done at a home business and my hair legit took 4 hoursss. The woman was so nice and her daughter’s almost my age and she likes turkish dramas too so I think I have a new bestie.ย ๐Ÿ˜‚ย Jk probably not but the family is so nice. I’m going to make a hair post soon (which is weird because there won’t be actual hair picturesย ๐Ÿ˜‚ย I’d send you pictures if you’re a girl but I don’t trust the internet so…๐Ÿ˜‚ย But anyways, I’m really happy with how my hair is now like wow this is how everyone else feels like.ย ๐Ÿ˜‚

And finally, my neighbour drops off her baby sometimes after school to pick up her kids at the bus stop and since I arrive earlier than them, I get to take the babyyy. She’s so cute mashallah but it’s so funny because she automatically acts like an angel when I walk in.

That’s about it for life. Here are the books I read this month.

Image result for the boy at the top of the mountainย ย Image result for but then i came backย ย Image result for what to say nextย ย Image result for my sister's keeper book

The Boy at the Top of the Mountain – I never read third person and historical books. I usually just stick to the same genre but I thought I should branch out a bit. And oh my – this book was SO good. It was a bit boring at times but I practised reading aloud the whole thing and the ending thoughhh. It was so heartbreaking to see Pierrot go from this sweet little boy to a heartless soldier. I was so happy when they were about to poison Hitler but Pierrot just HAD to ruin it. Pierrot got so played at the end and it just shows that you’ll never get satisfaction from doing bad in the world. It was so cool to see the progress of the character and John Boyne did a really great job with this book.

But Then I Came Back – This book had a really cool storyline but aw I thought Jaz was going to wake up in the end. I loved the part when she told her to let go and how the reason she died was cleared up at the end. So much family theme was shown in this book too. This book does have a lot of fantasy with the element of the afterlife because we can’t describe what we haven’t seen yet but other than that, it was actually pretty good.

What To Say Next – Oh. my. God. I have a lot to say about this book. So the beginning was kind of boring but the events started to pick up a bit after that. I looved the family themes on both sides but wow Kit’s side definitely surprised me. I also liked seeing the different personalities since this was from both characters’ point of view and so was the previous book. But I was seriously not expecting that plot twist towards the end. It would’ve been much better to have that plot twist in the middle because no one did anything about it at the end. And why did Kit get mad at her mom for cheating when she was the one who – okay I won’t spoil it but that part was just very rushed. I liked the characters but dang, Kit and David think a lot about kissing throughout normal situations like okay?ย ๐Ÿ˜‚ย Overall, it was a pretty good book but that plot twist was just a little less effective in my opinion.

My Sister’s Keeper – Okay…I lied. I didn’t finish the book – I’m not even half-way there but I need your opinion. Is this book worth the read? Because with me, if a book has a movie and it’s a pretty big book, I’d choose the movie because it’s the same storyline so I probably don’t want to waste my time twice, you know? But if any of you read the book, let me know what you think.

Dreams

I did not get many dreams this month. Like August was a really hype dream month but I don’t know – September just wasn’t feeling it.ย ๐Ÿ˜‚

  • I had a dream that my dad wanted to visit my aunts at like 12 pm so I went with him. We stopped at a gas station and it was huge and had a bunch of people older than me from my old school. I was talking to this girl and then turns out she was Alexa from Awkward World! Apparently she was my friend’s friend or something like whaaat?

Image result for whaaat gif

  • This girl from my 3rd grade class who I don’t really talk to threw a huge party for me. I was so confused like bruh, what? We took so much pictures and I was so “popular”. But suddenly, this dream took a sudden shift and it turned paranormal? Like I don’t know – everything was so eery and dark and I remember trying to escape the dream but I couldn’t? This dream was so weird.

Image result for what's going on gif

  • So there was a twin pair in my class apparently and they look like clones of this guy in my class from 7th grade except they had green eyes. I liked the one with the darker green eyes but the one with brighter green eyes liked me so it was this whole chain. The darker green eyed one didn’t like me back (LE CRI) and was talking to this other girl. We made eye contact and omgg I literally felt something right there. It full on felt like a breakup in a turkish drama. And it’s so weird because I don’t even know the guy loool.

Bloggingย 

ย September wasn’t a really fun blogging month but the back to school marathon was really fun (even tho I mentioned it in my August Wrappers- whoops). You’d think after a year of blogging, my stats would be much higher than last year but last year was actually the higher one. Not that I really care about stats but wow I was really consistent in August & September 2017. I hope I gather up the motivation and time management for it this month again.ย ๐Ÿ˜‚

Fav Day Of The Week: Tuesdays and Thursdays (I don’t know why these days are always so goodย ๐Ÿ˜‚)
Favorite Quote/Quran Verse:ย โ€œEvery human being is bound to taste death, [and] in the end unto Us shall all be brought back” – Al Ankabut/The Spider 29:57
Image result for kullu nafsin zaikatul maut
I memorized this chapter (it’s the one I had to recite for the Quran contest back in June) but this verse didn’t hit me until now. Sometimes we get so caught up with the distractions and worries around us that we don’t even see death and accountability coming. This is a constant reminder I have to remind myself and I wish you guys knew Arabic too because the language the Quran was sent in is truly powerful and it can’t be translated to English with that same effect (especially since no one speaks like thus, thou, ye anymore but I hope you understood the verse above). I usually don’t write a follow-up on favourite quotes but in this case of a Quran verse, I just wanted to share with you the impact on me that I’ll try to incorporate into every thought.

      Aww thank you SO much!! You too, Ryry ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’— Hahaha yes please transfer. It’s pretty average but I’m trying to make the most of it and being optimistic ๐Ÿ˜‚ IKR but I sometimes forget to unmute it later and there goes 500 missed calls from my brother ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Thank youu I’m so happy with it! And ayee yes tell me if you like reading it. Omg the second dream is so weird but hmm party turned paranormal sounds pretty good ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ IKR but seriously, the third dream was so dramatic. Okay I watch way too many Turkish dramas but I’d recommend either Cilek Kokusu or Tatli Intikam. Both are so comedic but I recommend Tatli Intikam more if you want some drama and serious stuff towards the end. I love both so so much ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Gurl thank YOU for always commenting and making my day

      I CANT WAIT TO WRITE IT TOO! Btw should I call it ‘Why I Hate To All The Boys I Loved Before’ or ‘Is To All The Boys I Loved Before Really Worth The Hype?’ It can go either way but I don’t want it to seem like I hate it hate it, you know? ๐Ÿ˜‚ Let me know which one sounds better.

      IKR me neither but it’s sooo good and yes I’ll send some over for sure ๐Ÿ˜‚ Thank you so much!!! ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’— Aah I’ve seen a bit on Mia’s blog and she sounds very angelic. I’ll have a listen at her other songs. Thank you so much and loved your comment ๐Ÿ’•

    This has almost become a cliche at this point but just as true-I LOVE YOUR POSTS SO DARNIT MUCH!!
    *ahem*
    I actually had another dream that I met you this month, but for some reason it got really weird and we were chasing seagulls or something and then my pointe shoes sprouted wings like the keys in Harry Potter….(I know, my dreams are borderline demented) but I also had one where I was about to meet one of my favorite fictional characters (not Artemis Fowl unfortunately, it was Halt from the Ranger’s Apprentice books, lol) and I was like incredibly excited…annnnd then I fell on my face…and realized that I was wearing dance clothes and so the character was just like ”ummmm, what?” and of course I ws just mortified beyond belief, like whyyyyy. Thank goodness it was a dream, haha.
    I’d LOVE to see pictures of your hair if you’re comfortable sending me pictures, no pressure, I’m sure it’s fabulously gorgeous ๐Ÿ™‚ I had so many short pieces in the front of my hair that I had to start doing this complicated braid/bun thing to keep them under control fopr dance. Onnnn the upside though, the jerk I was dealing with hasn’t been too awful, so yayyy.
    And the biggest new of all this month….this antisocial potato made a friennnnndd! Is it sad that I’m so incredibly excited about that? idk.
    Loved this post so much ๐Ÿ™‚
    Great posy!

      Aah I know right!! It feels so nice compared to my frizzy hair ๐Ÿ˜‚ Yeah..let’s just say I wasn’t very careful with my hair before either. My mindset was basically why would I brush it if it’s going to tangle in the shower again? It took the woman 4 hours to do my hair so yeah me neither but I might go back and do it again later on.
