Lately all I can think about is ATX. Where the people are warm and sunshine is abundant. Tacos are a staple of our diet and cotton candy sunsets a norm. I miss the heavy summer rain and loud thunderstorms. I miss wearing shorts every day and feeling the breeze fly through my hair. I long for the people who love each other so hard and genuinely care for each others wellbeing. I seek the comfort of the life I built in Austin. Cannot wait to go back in two weeks!
Hahaha I asked my boyfriend what the caption of this post should be. This was what we came up with. Which one do you prefer?
Me: Love yourself harder than anyone else ever could.
Boyfriend: Do you like beige food? I like beige drink.
‘Hi! Remember me? Im still breathing’ 👹
This Shab e Barat I prayed to Allah to give me strength to study for my exams (which is tomorrow let me tell you), also prayed that I get to finish my course at time and said; true words were ‘Mujhe mere imtehaan mein kamiyaab karna aur mujhe Sab yaad hojaye ITMINAAN SE’ (notice that)
But... didn’t know that this would lead to ACTUALLY NOT HAVING LITTLE INTEREST IN STUDYING although I have my exam tomorrow and I’m not even prepared for it. 😐😐😐
All these years I’ve been panicking throughout these exams days with sleepless nights especially a day before. But this year I’M POSTING wow. I don’t feel like I have an exam tomorrow, again, Wow.
Cheers to this clueless Hafsa! 🍻
Pray for me☠️
Some days you've got to rise above the challenges and be thankful for the people in your life that are always there for you, every step of the way. Today I am thankful for @seeairuh_k for the love and thankful for my boyfriend (who doesn't have an Instagram) for the support and care. I'm also thankful for the friends I spend evenings and weekends with because you brighten up both the world and my life. Stay optimistic and love yourself. Keep the ones you love close and don't ever shy away from telling someone how much you care about them. Live your life for yourself. <3 Oh, and this was my lunch from the other day hahah. Go out into the world and grow! Love yourself, love the world, love people, and your life will in turn be full of love and happiness.
The sunshine is my fuel and now that summer is approaching my heart is so excited. Lately many thoughts have flooded my mind from focusing on the things that make me happy to searching for ways to add happiness to our world. My passion for making YouTube videos comes from my love of people and connection. My goal is to put a smile on your face and maybe make you laugh or make you feel like you're not alone in your struggles. My love of YouTube is ignited every time I read that someone was able to connect to something I said or did. I've thought about what my purpose and goal is in life. I think for me it's to be happy and to spread love, happiness, and care. This photo is of me deep in thought, exploring the city, listening to upbeat music, and loving the sunshine. 🌞
Avocado toast on a rainy day! Lately I've spent each day thinking of ways to focus on self care. Mostly focusing on this topic because my physical and mental health experience many challenges. Some days self care means taking a long hot shower or working out, other days it's an acupuncture appointment or therapy, and many times it means watching YouTube and cuddles with my boyfriend. But most days it's trying to slow down my thoughts and putting energy into the things that make me happy. In fact, taking care of myself may even mean filming a YouTube video to channel my creativity hahah. What sorts of self care tips do you all have? I'd love to learn what types of things you do to brighten up your days and prioritize yourself. ☀️
I'm lying in bed struggling to fall asleep once again since coming back from my trip. Thought I'd share the travel bag I used while in Asia. It made the trip way more simple! I'll probably make a video on what's in my travel bag soon in case anyone is interested and looking for ideas. ✈
The last photo I'll post of the trip. If you haven't seen my one minute highlight reel yet, the link is in my bio. My heart is happy knowing we had an incredible adventure. My body is still jet lagged, but it was worth it. Now, for editing the longer blogs. I hope you all are having a great weekend so far. <3
Saying goodbye to Seoul was tough, I fell in love with the city, but I cannot wait to go back one day. I seek those moments where I feel most alive. My heart felt calm in this city and time seemed to slow down. Time slowed down as I wandered the streets in the sunlight, as I ate delicious meals, and as we walked in the fluffy snowfall at night holding onto Chris' arm. I'm thankful for those moments of pure bliss.
