Lol, once I was humming the song “Trumpets” (humming ok chill) and my brother starts yelling “HARAAAAAAAAAAAAAM” and mum gives him a look and asks him, “how do you know it’s haraam, have you been listening to it?”

That’s how you know, friends. That’s how you know you’re the favourite child.

Being liked by someone who hates everyone is one of the nicest feelings in the world.

You ever have one of those days where everything is going OK and all of a sudden something happens and your first instinct is to go tell a specific person but for whatever reason they’re not in your life anymore and it just sucks because even though it’s involuntary, you still automatically think of them and what sucks even more is now there’s no one to share this news with

This girl has a 600 second Snapchat story.

Nah. Hell nah.


Anonymous: You're Canadian so you're probably boring

I’m Canadian and I’m boring. The two are not necessarily associated with one another, lol.

But look, Canada has

  • Ryan Gosling
  • Really colourful and shiny money
  • It’s actually a really beautiful country, in terms of the landscape
  • Our weather is unpredictable, one minute it could be snowing and the next it could be sunny

SEE, Canada isn’t boring!

"ily" doesn’t sound as nice as "I love you" and "I love you" doesn’t sound as nice as "I made you chai"

x6tance Lol. I’m not saying it’s bad to express your love, rather I think it’s a really good thing. All I’m saying is that it’s something that I personally have difficulty doing because that’s just not something I saw often growing up. To me, affection isn’t just telling someone that I love them. To me, when I ask someone how their day was, when I tell them about something that reminded me of them, when I ask them if they got home safe, when I tell them they are in my prayers, that is also a form of affection, albeit not one that most people acknowledge. To me, sarcasm and teasing one another, is a form of showing one another that you care because that’s what I’ve always seen my parents doing. When I’m mean to someone (jokingly, obviously), it just means I’m comfortable being myself around them. I’m not faking being nice to keep them around, rather I trust that they’ll stick around despite my not-so-nice disposition.

I’m trying to learn though, how to be more expressive. However I find it exceptionally unfair that I’m being asked to change my entire personality and cater to the needs of others, when I would never, ever, ask anyone to change any part of themselves for me. Why can’t someone know this is how I am, and that be good enough? Changing for someone isn’t a bad thing, in my opinion, if you’re growing and learning to be a better person overall, but how is it fair if I’m the only one that has to.
