Trying to figure things out for when my Saturn returns.


This is everything, and nothing. An autobiography, an epitaph, a bible, a map. A reminder just in case I lose myself along the way.
Love & Light.

Apr 6th I didn’t get to take a photo of all the shawarma my mom sent from Kuwait cause we ate it so fast before my phone could charge up. So here is a photo of the pint of mango ice cream I ate last night instead.

The Human Brain



The first time I held a human brain in Anatomy Lab I was completely speechless. I looked at my classmates expecting a similar reaction and they looked back at me confused like…”dude let’s start identifying the structures.” I had to take a step back and let it process…in my hands was someone’s entire life. From start to finish, every memory, every emotion, every bodily control…was right there in my hands. 








This one’s for Rikki B. Rikki has a very big brain. Her brain is in better condition than mine. Rikki isn’t even her real name but I’m using it anyway.

Apr 1st | 1 note Hey, you.

I meant to write to you on the anniversary of the day I first met you. 

I know I’ve been with you every waking day for months now but some days I know it seems like I haven’t.

The other day we were talking about how both funny, rewarding, and amazing is the fact that we’ve been through so much in a short span of time.

We’ve been to so many places too. We’ve discovered so much about ourselves and each other and we’ve met some of the most amazing people on earth. 

I am so grateful to have had all these experiences with you, together. I could not think of any one else to share these experiences with but you.

Forgive me if at times I fail to forget. You’ve done so well at proving yourself. Thank you for showing me that holding on was worth it. I almost lost faith, thank God you didn’t let me. Now this time prove yourself to you. 

It’s been a year and a few weeks since the first day I met you. There will be so many years more.

I learned so much from you. So much. Thank you.

We’ve grown in wisdom, in spirituality, in soul, in dreams.

Thank God for all of this. 
He’s given us so much.
He’s made this work. 
He’s loved us.
Jeremiah 29: 11.

Here’s to a billion more adventures.
The universe aligned our stars when we met.
You are my soul mate.

I love you, i love you, i love you.

Always.
N.


P.S. Never lose passion.

Note to self before I plunge to my death this Thursday.

The time in my life when I felt most able, most capable and full of potential was when I was in my senior year in high school.

The point where I read most books from the beat up library of my not so prestigious high school.

JD Salinger, Lewis Carroll, Jostein Gaarder, The Secret.

Books that fueled my lust for knowledge and adventure. Something more than what there is.

Throughout my four year journey (hopefully not more than) through college, I’ve lost that yearning. I’ve forgotten the determination I had to leave the normalcy I so everyday lived. If anything, I am at my most fearful right now.

I want nothing more than to be done with this so I can finally go back to who I lost through the past few years.

I used to be passionate at what I do, now I do it because I have to.

I pledge an oath: To you who has lost passion, to you who has succumbed to need, to you who has detached herself from who she really is, to you whose moonshine have dimmed, redeem yourself. For all that is good and true, redeem yourself. If not for others who have superficial outlooks of you, redeem yourself for you. Redeem yourself from the mundane comfort you have so gotten used to. Redeem yourself from the cycle and state of mind you once dreaded. And, with each time you fall back into this trap, redeem yourself once more.

Always,
N
