As long as I live I will never be as fashionable as Taylor Swift is.

I’m trying hard to live by Cat Principles.

1- I am glorious above all things
2- Eat when hungry, sleep when sleepy, play when bored
3- Affection is given and received on my terms and only mine
4- Show displeasure clearly.
5- NO
6- Demand the things you want. If they aren’t given, demand them again, but louder this time.
7- If you are touched when you don’t want to be, say so. If they continue to touch you, make them bleed.

MEGA 100 Happy Days Update

I stopped doing this for ages (because I’m totally unreliable and I sorta wasn’t happy enough to do it) but here goes the update!! I’m gonna do the update a few days at a time because I can’t remember most of the individual days.

Day 53 - 59

I went on holiday to Spain with my best friend!!!

The beach was amazing and the weather was so nice. I’d been really stressed so it was so good to just go and relax, even if it was a bit expensive (oops!) but hey, that’s what I have savings for, right?

Happy hour!! It has ‘happy’ in the name, so that had to be included. These drinks (and literally everything I drank in Spain except the tea and coffee) were so nice! Totally recommend Spain for it’s drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic included).

We spent a couple of evenings on the beach, in the sea, walking around, shopping etc. it was cool to just relax and not have to go home and yeah, it was just really good! Wish I could go back!

Days 60-66

So this last week has been a few days work (=money for when I go back to uni) and I think the people on check-outs are starting to get to know me a bit better and I’m feeling better about the job, I’m not so worried about asking people for ID etc. so it’s going really well and I’m having a fun time. I think I’m getting a bit more confident too which will be good for when I go back to university next year!

I took Monday off to just sit round the house and I had to do the ice bucket challenge! Which I was super scared about because it’s ice cold water!!! What’s not to be scared about??

Well I did it — and it wasn’t that bad really. It wasn’t as cold as I expected thankfully (probably because I didn’t add enough ice lol) and I donated my money to charity so that was a fun day.

And then today I came to Sheffield and spent some time in the new house!!!! Which I love, I feel so much more comfortable here than I ever did last year and I got here successfully on the train which I was worried about. So all’s well, I’m feeling a lot more positive. I think I got too comfortable at home and got worried/worked up about coming back to university but now I’ve spent a chilled night here I’m feeling better about the whole thing!

Although my bed was like this when I arrived!

That’s my 100 happy days sort of updated. Sorry about the inactivity (I don’t know who I’m apologizing too, I’m sure none of your lives were negatively impacted by the lack of my 100 happy days posts, but yeah). Will continue properly from now on - but then again, I said that before so yeah, you’ll hear from me whenever I feel happy enough/bothered enough to do it!

Racism and ignorance clearly evident in our society, as experienced by my friend’s sister. This is what her potential dorm roommate, whom she had never met or talked to before, tweeted about her.
"Today I googled my last name and found this as one of the search results. Apparently, just by looking at my profile picture, I am Indian and I can barely speak english. This, my friends, is a prime example of racial profiling. I am an American citizen. I was born in Houston, Texas. My roots are not from India but from Africa. My parents are Algerian. I am Algerian American. English is my primary language and it is a struggle for me to speak my parent’s native tongue. My name is pronounced exactly as it is spelled. I wear a hijab (a head covering), and not a niqab ( a facial covering that excludes the eyes) though I do admire, respect, and find the beauty in all those who do choose to wear the niqab. But this girl is right, I probably would have had a heart attack living with a person who could not, and refused to, respect me and my beliefs. I can only thank God for an opening of a single room shortly after they assigned this roommate, way before I knew she had posted any of this. Alhamdullilah. I also thank God for being born in Houston, one of the most multicultural cities in the United States, and not experiencing racism like this everyday of my life. Sunday is my move in day and the start of my college career. This can be nothing but a good sign for the years to come, inshaAllah.  In conclusion, I urge everyone, please, don’t judge a person by their appearances. Racism exists in this nation because we continue to do so. We have to look beyond the covers of appearances and read the texts of their characters. Stand with me and ‪#‎stopracism‬.” -Roukaya Mabizari
