Hi there! As you can probably tell from the title, this post is about uni! You may or may not know, but I started university on the 26th September, and moved into halls. This is my personal experience of Freshers’ Week and the whole moving away from home process.

Moving into halls was an incredibly scary experience for me. Prior to moving in, I was extremely scared and worried about how it would be, but most importantly how much I would miss home.. even though it IS only an hour away… it was very difficult. I went home on Tuesday evening and came back on Thursday, and then went home on Friday and came back on Sunday… so technically I didn’t ‘really’ move out but still, it’s a big step for me.

The next couple of weeks when actual lessons start would make it difficult for me to visit home so often… so I will let you know of how homesick I get in the coming weeks.. Hopefully I will get used to it because I’m finding it pretty difficult! Thankfully though, I’ve moved in and settled in pretty well… My flatmates are all really nice so that helps a great deal. XD

Soooooo, freshman orientation, most widely known as FRESHERS’ WEEK was last week and will continue throughout this week. I’ve heard countless times that freshers’ week is supposedly the best week of your life. In my opinion, if that’s the case, then you’ve had a pretty sad life. YES, it’s incredibly fun!! But it’s not the best week I’ve ever had. XD Most everything does, unfortunately, run around discos, partying, clubbing and all that other stuff Muslims aren’t supposed to be involved in, which really sucks but it meant that I could actually find friends who were like myself and didn’t go either!

During the day there’d be a few introductory lectures and then everyone would go back to halls or commute home. From around 8pm to early morning is when the partying etc would start. Basically there’s nothing left for me to do and I’ve just had an hour in the dissection room which was pretty scary! Sooo yeah, I’m gonna continue being bored and wait for tomorrow’s lectures to start. ZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzz……. Hopefully, my next post will be when lectures start and I’ll actually have something awesome to write. ^^ Ooh, and I go home tomorrow! I miss my family ever so much. :’(


As Humza Arshad rightly said, “Paki’s are always late!”, I’d like to wish (a belated) EID MUBARAK to all who celebrated! Hope you all had an awesome day and enjoyed it as much as I did. The reason for such a late blog post is due to me being incredibly busy in the build up to uni starting, as you may have read in the previous post.

On Friday I had to attend a Mehndi, Saturday I went to Chessington World of Adventures with my besties, and yesterday was the wedding ceremony. On top of that, I’ve been tidying all my revision notes up.. and what a mess it was! And… I’m typing this post on my brand new laptop! I must say, desktops are much easier to use, but not very efficient to take to uni THAT REMINDS ME! Just got my accommodation sorted, woohoooooo!!

The list of things which occupied me this past week have been yes, I’ve been busy. So, the thing I wanted to talk about in this blog post is the trust between ourselves and our parents. I’ve always been a good girl (A) so that trust meter is pretty high between myself and my parents. Alhamdulilah. As a result of that, I’ve been fortunate enough to be granted privileges which may not have been possible without that high level of trust between us.

Before you think I’m bragging and don’t see the point of this post, I’d like to say this: NEVER break your parents trust, no matter what situation you’re in. I’ve seen it happen when others meddle with the blessed relationship you have with your parents, and it’s just not worth it! Always strive to keep them happy and satisfied, and in turn Allah swt will be happy and satisfied with you too inshAllah I should have worded this post better, but whatever, you get the message. In light of recent events that have taken place in my life I feel the need to share such a blog with everyone. Things happen and people will eventually show their true colours. You can’t choose your family so even if you’re unhappy, you might as well just make the most of it!

I also feel the need to tell specific people to stop thinking SO much. Nothing in excess is good and well, some people have a little too much time on their hands. I’ve received some mentions on Twitter I’d rather not reply to. Stop being such a depressed old soul and enjoy your life! If I know and love you, I’ll help you. <3
