I Live In One Of The Worst Countries For Women|Pakistan

So I came across something recently.

Pakistan ranked fourth worst in gender parity.

And when I say that I exploded, believe me, I became a ball of rage! 🀬 But to be honest, we all know Pakistan is a very sucky place to be a woman. Just last year, I was violated of my privacy by a group of men. Since then, I always have the worst thoughts if a man walks too close to me. Just recently I had to go to the market to buy some groceries, and found myself tensing up every time a man came near me. You know, when your eyes dart left and right and your hands find themselves covering your behind.

So what does this tell us?

Gender Inequality IS NOT

  1. An Islamic Problem
  2. A Desi Problem
  3. An Asian Problem
  4. A Brown-People Problem
  5. A Backwards-Mentality Problem

It is a PAKISTANI problem. Own it.

I mean just imagine this, I’m teaching an 18 year old girl HOW TO WRITE HER OWN NAME! Her dad didn’t believe in educating her, so she’s been working since she was 16. Child labor and lack of education? Ding ding! Oh and the cherry on top, how could I forget, SHE’S MARRIED.

Does anyone care?? Yes?? I mean we all care until it inconveniences us. Once that happens, we enable the very system that puts these women in these positions.

Anyways, its 1 AM and I feel like I could go on for HOURS and HOURS about this. All I’m asking for you guys is to please use your privilege and platform to help others. If I had one dying wish, it’d be this. And I won’t stop until this world becomes a better place.

A parting quote for you all from Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan.

The 6 PROS of Virtual School! (yes, there actually is some good!) πŸ₯΄

So as we all are aware, my school officially shut down in March 2020. I was in my senior year of high school (A levels). When my siblings went back to school in August, it was a combination of in-person school and online. I was technically out of school for one entire YEAR. Miss Korona Kardashian gave me the gap year I never asked for and it kinda drove me crazy. (Read about my downward spiral here)

Now, one year later almost to the day, I’m back doing what I love most: learning! My classes have been entirely online, and I’m sure I’ve become some sort of a virtual school learner expert. Because we want more positivity in our lives, here are some of the BEST parts about virtual learning!!

Without any more delays, let’s get this bandwagon rolling!! And if you aren’t a student, I promise, from the deepest pits of my cold heart, you miiiiiiiggghhtt crack a smile πŸ™‚

  1. SLEEPING IN

Now don’t lie to me, I KNOW YOU’RE GUILTY OF THIS! Yes, YOU! The one reading this. I can see straight into your soul. It’s embarrassing, but I have once (okay FINE, it was more than once :/) just attended the online class to take my attendance, before dozing off to sleep. πŸ₯΄

To reassure y’all who have a conscious and feel guilty afterwards: It’s okay, because technically, you can also learn while sleeping. Don’t believe me? Medical News Today actually agrees with me. Ok I don’t actually know if they confirm this, I only read the title, but if it doesn’t confirm this then the title is misleading and I can sue for ‘fake news’.

I once attended a history class to mark myself ‘present’, fell asleep, and dreamt of the exact things we were talking about in class!! Our brains are weird!

Relatable Memes If You Have Daytime Sleepiness

2. ONLY HALF OF YOU GETS READY

I swear, I just wear my PJs and change my shirt if I ever have to turn my camera on. There are some classes which actually require it, so for this I actually make an effort. But for the classes where turning your camera on isn’t necessary, then girl, you better believe I’m looking like a whole hot mess!! πŸ”₯😳

3. SO MUCH TIME SAVED

Okay, let’s be real here. Most of the kids who take online school don’t make the effort to get ready. You don’t have to wake up an hour before school to get ready, eat breakfast, or take that long commute to school. So instead of waking up at 7 AM for an 8 AM class, I’m waking up at 7:59 AM and I’m still on time!! Booyah!!

This also gives me the opportunity to sleep a little later and get more work done! Uni workload is decently tough, plus maintaining this blog, and oh yeah, I HAVE A JOB NOW!! πŸ€‘

4. MULTITASKING

Now people often ask me: when was it that you realized you were an excellent multitasker?

I say: When I cooked, ate, showered, prayed, and blogged all while attending an online class!!πŸ’€

I’m the self-proclaimed kween of online school multitasking. If the Olympics actually registered this as a sport, I’m pretty confident I’d be able to win a gold here. Or maybe I just have attention deficit. omg.

5. EVERY TIME IS SNACK TIME🀩

Is this not self explanatory?!?!?!?

6. ACCESSIBILITY

This is actually quite convenient. Its great because I can attend classes whenever and wherever. Shore, you still need a solid wifi connection (which mine actually is sucky lol), but its still super relaxed! I can spend the night at my Gramma’s without any stress whatsoever!!


Yes, my friends, we’ve reached the worst part. The ending of my post!! 😭πŸ₯²

Hopefully I was able to get you to smile a little by this point. We really need more positivity in this world. πŸ™‚ But don’t worry, I’m still going to post all the cons of online school very soon!!

And once again, I want to reiterate that I am SO SO BLESSED to be given the privilege of attending online school. This corona pandemic has really amplified the digital divide around the world. My maid in Pakistan lives with us, and her four kids have suffered immensely because they haven’t been attending school due to lockdowns. I’ve taken it upon myself to help them now, and I wish more people did something with the privilege they’ve been handed.

ANYWAYS, I think I’ll stop bothering you and let you go back on with whatever it was you were doing before being disturbed by my post hehe!! πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ

First Day of Med School! (why am i torturing myself?)

OMG. DΓ©jΓ  vu much?

My first blog post on here was about a little more than a year ago, and it was all about my last first day of high school. (you should totes check it out ;))

And now, here I am! My FIRST official day of medical school! AAAAAHHH!! I’M NOT READY!!

So for everyone’s information, I got accepted into a medical college in Karachi, a 17 hour drive away from home! Alhamdulilah! Don’t ask me how I’m coping with that, because I am, but my parents, well um, they’re a little iffy about that. For better or for worse, all my classes are online. *sarcastic yay*

I think for privacy reasons, I won’t be disclosing my college name any time soon, but I am definitely taking you along for the ride! If I gotta be suffering, SO SHOULD YOU!! πŸ˜›

Let’s start this journey *gulp*

OKOK, THAT’S ENOUGH CHIT CHAT. THE BIG QUESTION: HOW DID MY DAY GO? (as if anyone asked lol)

So I set my alarms for 6:45, 6:46, 6:47, 6:48, 6:49, 6:50, and so on until 7 AM. I guess God didn’t want for me to wake up at the time I wanted, because I ended up waking up 15 minutes before my class. BIG YIKES. I’ve got this condition where my face retains its sleepy, puffy eyed look an hour even after I wake up. Anyone got a name for this? Sleep deprivation?

My first class of the day is called The Ideas and Faiths of Pakistan. It’s an unconventional way to teach history and religions that are present in Pakistan today. It’s really discussion based and super interactive. It was only an introductory, getting to know my teacher, and so for an hour and a half I just kinda stared at my screen. Super fun!

I only actually had one more class for the day, Chinese!! We had the option to choose from 8 languages, and I selected Mandarin Chinese as my first choice followed by Spanish. And guys, Chinese is SO FUN!! My teacher is amazing, having lived in Karachi herself for two years, now living in Huhan. It’s hard, I won’t lie. We started off with Pinyin, going over the initials, finals, and tones.

Chinese itself is so intriguing. Nothing like English, Urdu, or the very small amounts of Punjabi I’ve been exposed to! I’m just super worried that my tones are WAY OFF!!

So my classes started at 8 AM, ending at 1 PM. Don’t worry though, this is MED SCHOOL. It won’t be this easy (ΰ²₯_ΰ²₯). Truth be told, the first four weeks is purely social sciences and humanities. I’ve got to take Urdu and Media Studies as well. The actual science-y stuff starts at the end of March, and that’s a solid 8-5 PM day, with about a 1.5 hour break in between. I’ll give an updated routine then, but every day has different subjects and I doubt I’ll even have any time lol.

angela on Twitter: "anyways i can live with the fact that miss im jin ah  herself has noticed me, that's all it matters… "
An actual picture of me. This is 100% real.

SOOOOO. That was my first day! I’m writing this after I completed my second day of school, but it was more or less the same! Just replace The Ideas and Faiths of Pakistan with Urdu (which went disastrous!)!! Oh, and I have Media Studies on Thursday and Friday from 2-4 PM too!

Sunshine Blogger Award β˜€οΈπŸŽ‰ (thanks y’all *:γƒ»οΎŸβœ§)

*:γƒ»οΎŸβœ§ THANK YOU AYYYY!!! *:γƒ»οΎŸβœ§

I was recently nominated by ceridwensilverhart over at Illuminating the Fool’s Mirror! Check her out!! THANK YOU FOR NOMINATING ME!! It’s been a while since I’ve been able to do these award posts, but it’s great to get back into them! πŸ˜€ In fact, when I’m rich and famous one day (that day COULD NOT come quicker omg) I hope I get to do a million bajillion interviews because I love answering questions. Wait, is that narcissistic? πŸ‘πŸ‘„πŸ‘

Ceridwensilverhart’s Questions

  1. Which would you rather watch, a sunrise or a sunset? Oof, neither? I think I’d rather catch up on my sleep lol. But if I MUST, then I’d go with the sunrise if I’m ever able to wake up that early. The thing with sunsets is, well number one, I have to pray Maghreb. It’s an obligatory prayer in Islam. And secondly, sunsets really stress me out. It’s like my reminder that the day is over and night is here, yet I’ve accomplished basically nothing all day. AM I JUST PARANOID?????
  2. How much do you organize your tools? I’m assuming tools for building and constructing things, right? I actually don’t personally have any tools, but my family has like two big toolboxes that we all use. Although to be honest, I suck at rebuilding furniture. We’ve been in the process of moving and let’s just say that there is a broken bookcase and me at the crime scene!
  3. If you could name a star, what would you call it? DEFINITELY going to be naming it after something Star Wars-y. Or maybe after an inside joke only me and my siblings understand because we’ve got thousands of those! πŸ™‚
  4. With TV or book series, how important is it to you to start at the beginning versus starting wherever you happen to discover it? So fun fact: I’m not into TV shows or Movies AT ALL. I used to really try to get into them, but I just realized that it’s okay to not be into the same things everyone else is. Same goes for books, I don’t read series. Usually standalone psychological thrillers and crime (maybeeee romance) books are what you’ll find on my laptop.
  5. What’s the weirdest animal encounter you’ve had? I don’t really think I’ve had any weird encounter. I have very little encounters anyways, because, you know, I’m brown. We’re born scared of dogs!
  6. If you had to give up one sense, what would it be? YIKES. Probably taste? I can’t go without seeing my family, hearing people’s laughs, feeling peoples warmth, or smelling the smells of my childhood. And who knows, maybe I’ll finally lose my Quarantine 15 πŸ˜› But then again, NO DESSERTS? NO WAY! I can live without smell! I change my answer hehe.
  7. If you could have one sense from another species, what would it be? So thanks to this question, I spent an hour going through cool animal senses and I’ve come to the conclusion: I think I wanna keep my human senses please!
  8. If someone told you they had magical powers or were a magical/supernatural creature, would you believe them and with what evidence? Nopes! Wouldn’t believe em at all! Don’t believe in magic!
  9. If you were stuck in isolation, which three of these things would you most want to have with you: other humans, your phone or other device, your pet(s), a year’s supply of books, crafting supplies, exercise equipment, or curious but harmless wild animals? OTHER HUMANS X 10000000!! I’m a total extrovert and just love, love talking to people. Phones and other devices would be a close second if I ever got to fed up with those I’m stuck with. But human interaction is a must for me!
  10. Which of these magical items would you most want to own: a door that opens to any room you choose, a cloak of invisibility, a cauldron that produces any food, a mirror that shows the truth, or a shield that makes you invulnerable? I think I’d go with a cauldron that produces any food! Assuming its infinite, I could literally end world hunger. 😱
  11. What is worth waiting for? I’m gonna write an essay for this….

There are a lot of things worth waiting for. But for me personally, this question really hits home. I really want to do something in this world. I don’t want for my life to have had no purpose. Y’all don’t even know, but I spend almost 99% of my time just day dreaming about HOW I’m gong to be able to carry out all my dreams and goals. That’s something I love about Pakistan, it’s a land of opportunity for those who want to help. There are people who need help at every turn. And I’ve gotta do something about it. What’s the use of having privilege if you won’t do anything with it? I hope I dont have some Messiah Complex, but I can’t help myself.

Part of the reason why I’m putting myself through med school (aka hell) and taking on part time jobs when I have no need to, is because I want to start as soon as I can! But I realize that I still gotta do a whole lot of waiting. At least 5+ years. And you know what, I’m OKAY with that. Sure, if I had the choice, I’d start right now. But if I did that, I wouldn’t be able to do as much as I dream.

God, I could go on for hours about this. (dont believe me? ask my friends, they’ve heard this so much they hate it lol). Maybe I’ll write about it one day. Although I’ve learned never to share your real goals with anyone? Then it gives you this unnecessary pressure and stress that I could’ve just lived without.

WordPress calling me hehe

first off, its my birthday! I’m finallyyy 18 πŸ₯³

SECONDLY, WHERE HAVE I BEEN?! My dear reader, I have one word for you, but this word is self explanatory and requires absolutely no explanation (but me being me, I shall still explain): MDCAT. 😭X∞

So yeah, I’ve been in a self exile of some sorts since August, vigorously preparing for the MDCAT here in Pakistan. Which might I just say, is heavily biased against those who chose to do A Levels in high school. Regardless, my results came out this month, and even though a loooonnnggg process of university/college applications stands in my way, I’ve been deprived of this blog for too long. 😦

And would you look at that, 2020 is almost over huh? And I still have to tell you all about my A Levels results drama! And fill you up to date on every. single. thing. How I started driving, started accurate medication, finally got a job, made a new lifelong friend ❀ and UGH there’s too much to start rambling on about now!

Not to mention, I’ve got a lot of reading to do! Catching up on every blog I can get my hands on that is! Hope you guys get to see more of me around, and make up all that time we lost together. I mean, imagine how dull life would be without me in it! πŸ˜›

✨ 10 Hours Until A Level Results! ✨ Let’s Chat! βœ¨

It’s been a while since I’ve been on here, and let me just say, this is the perfect timing! My final A Level results are hours away, and here I am at 3 AM not knowing what to think, what to expect, what to do other than feel my heart fluttering. ✨ ✨✨✨✨

So let’s start off with addressing the elephant in the room. 🐘

These A Level results will be historic, and quite frankly legendary. This will be the first (and hopefully last) time results are being handed out without giving THE ACTUAL EXAM. So my results are actually predicted grades that teachers just HOPED I would get in the end. 😬

Which leaves us with two possibilities. 1) The exam boards are lenient and hands out everybody’s expected grades, making it easier to get As and A*s and effectively decreasing the value of them or 2) The exam boards not giving a you-know-what and making it harder to achieve As and A*s.

But hey, this is a STRESS FREE zone. πŸ’•And as much as I’m lying about not being even a teeny weeny bit stressed, I think it’s important to realize that these results are being conducted in the most confusing and unprecedented time in nearly a century. It’s completely normal to feel nervous, but just know that everyone did their best to satisfy everyone. The exam boards, teachers, students, and you. πŸ™‚

I think more than ever before, exam boards are beginning to realize that final exams are not an indicator of anyone’s achievements. Some students work really hard all year but don’t get what they wants, while others are laid-back before the finals and wow everyone.

The real key is consistency. And I predict that final exams will eventually be devalued as schools look upon a students overall performance throughout the year.

But alas, I can also predict with 110% confidence that I will still be awake a few hours from now. πŸ˜‚

So what do you think? Are you nervous for results? Excited? Intrigued to see how these turn out? And what about A Levels in general? Do you think they are an outdated way to measure students academics?

I’ll see you all in a couple hours, hopefully with my final results ready to share, God Willing! Until then, stay safe, and keep smiling! πŸ™‚

A Group of Men Took Pictures of Me And I Don’t Know What To Do

A couple of days ago, my eight year old sister would not step begging for me to take her to the park, which happened to be a 10 minute walk from our house. Being the perfect older sister, I complied.

I kid you not, I took 237 steps outside the house (my iPhone will verify that) before I noticed a group of young men aiming smartphone cameras at me. I squinted my eyes to see what was happening, and that’s when a series of flashes ensued.

They thought I didn’t notice the flashing light, especially with the bright sun out at midday.

But I noticed.

And I froze.

I can’t even begin to describe to you why I froze. I just did. I just locked my eyes with one of the men, and I was going to confront them.

But I didn’t. Because as “safe” as these politicians and leaders say women are, we are not. With me confronting them, I was only putting my own life in danger. Can you imagine? A 17 year old girl, with her younger sister, ready to confront a group of juvenile men? Had it turned physical, I would have surely been a goner. I could have been murdered, because in Pakistan, and unfortunately the rest of the world, the women will always be the one at fault. It’s unimaginable that the male is the guilty one at hand. And it would only bring disgrace and dishonor on me to even accuse someone of such a thing.

And imagine if I had called the police. Because get this, Pakistan actually has LAWS against sexual harassment (under section 509 of Pakistan Penal Code). But you’d be an absolute idiot if you think any of these laws are regulated. They would questions whether taking pictures of a woman without her CONSENT is even deemed as sexual harassment.

But worst of all, they would say that men taking pictures of me is a compliment. That it is simply a measurement of the beauty I possess (???!?!?)

I’m so upset right now. I know this happened a few days ago, which is why I delayed writing about it since my emotions were going through the loop of a roller coaster. But this is so wrong.

I feel humiliated. Embarrassed. Exposed. Vulnerabe. Angry. Furious. Violated. Stripped of all my dignity and self worth.

I’m just so angry. I’m angry because those men thought they were in power, and I’m angry that I didn’t even try to confront them, despite all the odds stacked up against me. The fact that I didn’t do anything about it means hat they still think they are superior to women.

I know this rant makes no sense, but I hope it gives you an insight into how emotionally troubled and disturbed I am. I literally don’t know what to do. I pray to God Almighty that He punishes them severely, because as much as we all preach forgiveness and letting go, I can’t. No way. What those men did is plain disgusting, and they need to pay.

So what now? I literally don’t know what to do. Those pictures of me could be circulating in WhatsApp chains, men may be jerking off to it, who knows, maybe I’m about to be killed in a few days? All I know is, I’ve let those men win, because I’m terrified of leaving the house now.

God, I just want to scream and kick and punch those men so bad right now. They’ve turned my life upside down in a matter of days. Making me questions my own self love and respect.

But for now I suppose I’ll just cry.

Because that’s all I can do.

I want to thank those men, for making me declare an all outward against sexual harassment. And when I get on something, I won’t stop until I’m dead. Can’t wait to see you and people like you in court!

9 Things Muslims In Ramadan Understand All Too Well|Ramablog #1

untitled design

** For some reason this post was found in my drafts so I had to republish it! At the time of reposting it was not Ramadan, so sorry for any confusion! πŸ™‚ Stay safe!

Asalamualykum, my fellow Muslims and non-Muslims!! Ramadan Kareem!Β 

Hey there! So this is the first Ramadan I have a blog and I’m going to kick off my Ramablogs (hehe) with a post I hope fellow Muslims find relatable! And even if you aren’t Muslim, I hope I have in some way, educated you about Ramadan struggles!πŸ’β€β™€οΈ


1. Binge Eating At Suhoor (Meal Before Dawn)

Now I can’t personally relate, but my family and friends can! Especially when they wake up with only 10 minutes left!😱

2. Wobbling During Taraweeh (Taraweeh: AKA Leg Day Workout)

c192d794-a318-40fd-9c85-d2427dedaba1
Actual footage of me after Taraweeh prayers

I felt this every year when we used to pray at the mosque, when the imam leading the prayer made Taraweeh last SO LONG! I would shift my weight from my left foot to my right foot to ease the pain. And the WORST was when my foot would fall asleep!Β 

Now with this whole global pandemic, Taraweeh have become somewhat easier with my family praying at home together. But I still feel like I’m doing my leg day workout! 🦡

3. Using The Bathroom CONSTANTLY After Suhoor (all that water you speed drank!)Β 

img_7614

This is my reality now, especially since I’m consciously making sure I’m hydrated this Ramadan! Every Suhoor, I end up drinking SO much water, to the point that I can hear it swoosh in my stomach! And I’m waking up at LEAST three times just to relieve my bladder. Anyone else?😳

4. Eating Too Much At Iftar (even when you say you won’t)

No explanation necessary! But I must add, I come out of Iftar looking pregnant!🀰

5. Staying Up All Night And Ruining Your Circadian Rhythm

Every year, I say I’m going to sleep early and wake up early during Ramadan. Well, um, that’s going great!😌

6. Vowing To Not Eat Fried Things

Trying to be all healthy shmealthy huh? Those pakoras, falafel, samosas, chicken nuggets, Β fries, and rolls won’t disappear on their own! And why are these so tempting?? I eat one, and I just gotta eat them all!

Why are the best foods SO BAD FOR YOU?!?!? Explain!Β 

7. Freezing Masjids

img_7649

Not too relatable now (I hope!!), but why is this so true? I’m nearly shivering during Taraweehs!Β πŸ₯Ά

8. When You’re Thirsty All Day Long (but suddenly not at Iftar)

Same goes for hunger! It vanishes by Iftar time!Β 

9. Ramadan. In. Summer.

img_7650

I’m counting down the days that Ramadan is in the winter!! πŸ₯΅This summer weather is too harsh! But gosh, I can’t just give up my mangoes!! πŸ₯­


AND there you have it! I hope you found some solace in knowing that we are all going through the same pesky things during Ramadan. But isn’t this what makes Ramadan so special?

I’m over here complaining about this, but deep down, I’m loving it! πŸ₯°πŸ₯°

Soooo, how many of you all are fasting this year? How is it going so far? And if you aren’t, just drop by and say hello down in the comments!! (If anyone is up for a deep conversation about why mangoes are the ultimate fruit, you know who to go to!)

Awesome Blogger Award! πŸ˜

I was nominated by Jess! So let’s show her some love and check out her blog!! πŸ₯°

Now without further ado, let’s get into the questions!!

Rules

  • Thank the person who nominated you
  • Tag it under #awesomebloggeraward in the Reader.
  • Answer the questions your nominator gave you.
  • Nominate at least five awesome bloggers.
  • Give your nominees ten new questions to answer.
  • Let your nominees know that they’ve been nominated.

Questions

  1. What is the first thing you’ll do after social distancing measures are lifted? Nothing too exotic, but I NEED to meet up with my friends and sit in a circle on the grass while recounting all of our funniest and most epic memories from high school! With our schools closing so abruptly, we never got a chance to properly say goodbye. It sucks even more because it is our last year of being together as a group.
  2. Your house is burning down, and you only have enough time to save 3 things. What do you save? Honestly…I don’t really have anything I’d truly want to save. I’m a minimalist and I don’t have any possession of mine that I must MUST save. I mean, there is my iPhone 6+, but it barely functions and so I wouldn’t mind it burning! πŸ˜‚
  3. What’s your favorite social media platform? Does this blog count? I actually cannot, I absolutely CANNOT, stand social media! It’s weird, most 17 year old girls fresh outta high school have the usually Instagrams and Snapchats, but not me! πŸ™…β€β™€οΈ
  4. Where would you like to travel one day? I would love to visit countries where there is a humanitarian crisis and try to help as many people as I can. So wherever I get a calling from!🌍
  5. Would you rather have the power to fly or be able to turn invisible? Depends on the speed at which I would be flying. I’m such an over thinker, so I’ll go with invisibility. I could sneak myself in for free anywhere! Maybe even crash top secret meetings and be able to end wars. The possibilities are endless!πŸ™‡β€β™€οΈ
  6. If you could snap your fingers and solve a global problem, which problem would you solve? WHERE DO I START?!? You guys reading this have no idea, but I want to do so much and help so many people. I don’t even say this to gain attention, I genuinely want to be able to help so so so so many people and set up schools, hospitals, prison reforms, build roads and skyscrapers and create millions of jobs.
