Everywhere like, such as.


Are you feeling blue and experiencing self- doubt? Do you feel as though alcohol is the only cure to your problems?

I have some good news for you. Say goodbye to the Vodka and Wine because what you are about to see has what I call ‘magical powers’. Regardless of how good or bad your day is, the below clip is guaranteed to make you laugh.

I completely understand the concept of pressure and being on the spot, and no, I do not think laughing at someone’s lack of intelligence is funny but this is on a whole new level, I cannot deal!

Tell me, do you feel better now ? … Oh yeah you do.

What does that even mean, I asked? She replied, well, the society is the shoe, we are the aching foot and in some cases even the forcefully bent toe.

I laughed hysterically at how ridiculous she sounded, forcefully bent toe she says, but it could work.

We unnaturally mold the arch of our foot to meet the painful aesthetic demands of society. It’s uncomfortable and not necessary therefore you would agree that it is self-inflicted pain. But why do we put ourselves through it?

10934184_10155175330285235_1634837341_n ‘Noor’ she said, the paradox is we claim to be numb to critics although we are aware and abiding. It’s a script. We are purely incentivised to do this in order to categorise ourselves into what we perceive as elite. Elite? High end? Unattainable & Exclusive?

The photograph captures the pride we carry to conform and simultaneously steering clear of associating with conformity. Ironic.

It was starting to get way too technical so we joked about how we had a ‘shoeclication’ on our hand, it was a serious shoe complication.

Innocence of a child


This late Sunday afternoon I sit on the floor in a “play area” watching my baby cousin float around. With confidence I can say that there is nothing more refreshing than the innocence of a child.

It’s free of worry, honest and as real as anything can be. There are no expectations, so he roams around looking for the next exciting moment, he giggles and screams and onto the next he goes.

Every emotion is heightened and without excuse. Just because he can he will and who’s to stop him, nobody. Instead we clown around like children to cater to his mood, it’s funny, the joke is on us.
