I haven’t shared with you much about myself, so here it is:
I love great scripted visual works that make me laugh for ages, ponder my political views, dream like a hopeless romantic, or are simply fascinating. They don’t have to be Oscar winners to meet my taste, just memorable enough to cause me to mention them in conversation; such works are engrained in my mental process.
I’m a Pakistani-American. Although I have never been there, Pakistan always has a place in my heart. I know the people of Pakistan will persevere through unsettling government, corrupted political processes,and ignorance from those who invade their land and their beliefs. It is up to them to improve their conditions,but it is also up to us to help them in doing so because we are all the same and borders shouldn’t stop us from humanitarian efforts.
I do not have the grandest vocabulary; you will never hear me use juxtaposed in a sentence (except for this one).
I’m Muslim. To me, Islam is beautiful and unbounded to a single ideology which encourages me to appreciate life with critical thought. I am not a pure example of Islam, it’s not possible for a human to fully represent–or groups, or cultures, or history for that matter. I welcome questions on my faith. I’m open-minded to learning different viewpoints on my religion and encourage dialogue of this topic and religion in general.
I’m not a competitive person unless it involves the game of LIFE™. I don’t see a point to the competition I sensed from my fellow peers in my educational career thus far, it inhibits learning and emergence of positive ideas that can can lead our society to plausible growth and sustainability. But when it comes to board games and cards, you do not want to be on my bad side. Ask my family, do me wrong and you will feel my wrath.
I also don’t thrive on texting. Thumbs weren’t formed to click across inky-dinky keypads, they are designed to signal status of approval and act as weapons for war. What I do live by is thinking, talking and writing; that’s why this blog still exists!
Last but not the least, I’m a dork. I calculate in my head fondly and am easily humored with a horrendous laugh to prove it. I’m grateful for this quality because it prevents me from participating in horrible pop-culture phenomenons such as adoring vampires who glitter in the sunlight instead of melting like they’re suppose to.
Yup, that’s me in a nutshell.
