The first blog…..

The first one is …. almost always the hardest one to start isn’t it?  Just like going back to school after a long summer (which still feels short) is the hardest thing to get motivated about.


Speaking of which, I am totally excited about attending university orientations which start next week. This year though, I have a motivation, my motivation is all about stepping into this new environment – new school, new friends, new program, new world.  I am slightly nervous about the workload, yet extremely eager to explore this new atmosphere. Who knew I would end up taking this path? A year ago, I was probably one of the many confused grade 12s out there, (seriously though, how does this world expect us to figure out our life when we are only 17?)

Anyhow, apart from the fact that I think I know that I will endure many stressful days; I shall stay open to detours if necessary. I think at the end of the day, it’s about making sure you are doing what you love, I completely love my sciences, although physics is more towards the dark side, I still find quantum mechanics absolutely mind blowing.  So you really just might find me throwing random facts at you, but I am definitely more of a chem and bio person. For starters, I recently learned that our taste buds change every 7-ish years with a transitional period of 6 months, meaning chances are that we might actually enjoying eating something now that we probably hated when we were kids,  so why not give that detested food another chance. (I am thinking, I will try some eggplant, for some reason – I have never been a big fan)


Something else that will probably surprise most people, even if you are not a bookworm is that I just started reading the Harry Potter series. I know I am very late, but in my defense all I have to say is I tried reading them a few years back, but having watched the movies, they were all so fresh in my head, I felt I couldn’t use my imagination at its best.  So I will take leave and head back to the magical world for a while.

I’d love to hear more about your university experience, or how you got to deciding what you want to be? Or simply anything you would like to share.

  1. Being 22 and holding a Bachelors I can confidently say that I still don’t know exactly what I want to be/do. All I know is this is what I love, what I want to be is kind of a mystery still. Insha’allah hopefully I will figure it out soon 🙂
    Uni was so much fun! Through out the years you tend to complain (or at least I did) about the work load and how stressfully it is but once you get out, you realize what a nice little world you used to live in. It’s been a year since I graduated but I still miss it so much!

    On the subject of tastebuds, well now, that explain my sudden like of chicken liver after all these years 😀 Learn something everyday. Thank you for sharing! 🙂

    I wish you the very best of luck sister! May Allah guide you and grant you barakath in all that you do! 🙂

    • Insha’Allah you will definitely figure it out and I guess that’s the idea, you know. What’s the point of adventure if there is no mystery to it eh ? I am totally scared about the work load, especially after hearing plenty of horror stories, but thanks a lot for boasting my confidence, I feel like I still have some hope. Do you mind me asking what program you were in ?

      Yea I know, the first time I found out, I was WOW-ed. Clearly explained my sudden love for olives, my childhood disaster embedded on pizza. Haha.

      Thank you very much, insha’Allah and may Allah give you the same and much more ! 😀
