Ever have the feeling of being detached from yourself? I've been feeling like that all week - it's like floating without an anchor. It's a conflict that happens when the chaos in your mind sharply contrasts with the normal mechanical happenings of your day; it's maddening. As stressful as it was, Eid sort of made it better :) It feels good to be connected to something so wholly bigger and greater than you. In other news, November. Bismillah.

This is a little strange, I always come back here and find loads of comments. Oh well, I hope all is well.

Dear Brotherhood et al,
Why do you always say things like "salaam :D" in response to her blogs? You should get a life. some of the stuff you post don't even relate to the blog itself, like "salaam :-/". I also suggest that you stop making your dumb personal overtures to her. Or at least do it where I don't have to see it or something. You're killing me, I tell ya. A good night to all of you.

Its me again. Thought I would weigh in on feeling detached. It occurs when deep and shallow randomly placed thoughts in one's mind begin to, shall we say, wrestle. With no clear victor in sight, one feels the sensation of floating without anchor.

In other news: A teenage kid in Compton was overheard saying he had overcome this feeling of disconnect by joining something so bigger and greater than he, namely, a gang.

what's your problem, anonymous? I assume you're trying to be funny or something, but it's really rude. I don't know brotherhood or anything, but I still admire his dedication to this blog.

And what's wrong with saying 'Salaam' to his friend, Asmaa?

Safiyyah said...

Who is brotherhood anyway? If he were Asmaa's personal friend, his posts wouldn't seem so strange, but I agree with Anonymous that people should think before they post or comment. And of course, that applies to me too.

umar said...

salaam!

sara said...

Hahaha. I second that single word comment and say simply say, 'Salaam' as well.

the old apartment

"I stand here in an empty living room, this old empty apartment. Cold, dark and furniture-less, the walls stand out dull and plain, lacking colour. Scratches and blotches and dents cover these walls..."

Asmaa said...

Hello everyone. Sort this out amongst yourselves. I'm too tired.

Umar, the funny thing is that quote is from Sara (the one who commented right above you). Is that from the website you were going to make me...like 3 years ago?

sara said...

Hahahaha! That must have been more than 3 years ago, I wrote that in 9th grade!

Don't spread that around, it's embarassing.

zjmanrf said...

yeah... i know who wrote it and when & where it's from.
why else do you think i wrote it after her comment? it didnt have anything to do with whatever discussion was already going on
:P

in other news...
i have yet to create my own blog page
i was inspired, but lack motivation

umar said...

"zjmanrf"

that was supposed to be the word verification thing.
how'd it end up as my name?
:S

Bob said...

I second what anonymous said. If you gotta make a comment, make sure it has a point. What point does 'salam' make?

Since when was Asmaa and just about every other Islamican female with a blog his friend? Yes indeed, brotherhood, get a life and stop stalking women.
