My Experience with NO Snapchat

kind of awkward  post I know but I thought it would be nice to share my experience with you guys living for almost two weeks without snapchat

How did it start 

I always felt like I have to reduce checking on snapchat , every morning I wake up am like ok where is my phone whats new on snapchat and that is totally unhealthy
So I felt I should stop using it for awhile , after reading Michelle Phan Book specially the social media or digital detox part am like hmmm now it is the right time to do it ,  the same day I finished reading the book I was like Okay this is it! lets delete this App and have little peaceful break

Addiction Symptoms 

sounds serious symptoms huh ? well the first couple of days I would wake up and look for the snapchat app and then am like Woopss I deleted it , then I switched my snapchat addiction to Instagram "Funny how things can go " . right away I figured this is aint going to work so I kept leaving my phone the whole day after coming back from work and keep on living normally  read more and play my sims more :P

keep it simple and real 

the big lesson that I learned from this short experience is that I totally forgot how to live my life simply in away I don't worry about filming recording or whatsoever , better be in the moment with my soul and heart is present at this current moment .


I think the next time I will re-use the snapchat am going to have few rules there , keeping in mind protecting my privacy and my family privacy too

I truly want to thank all of my friends who texted asking and misses my presence of their snapchat timeline , you made me feel really loved and special

what about you my smart readers any plans to take digital break anytime soon  ? don't forget to share your thoughts

Love you

بصراحة قبل كنت جيه مدمنه الحين عادي يخطفن الايام ما اشوف السناب، يعني مب مخلتنه الاهتمام رقم واحد عادي اذا ما شفته الحمدلله، بشكل عام تجربة حلوة ، بس خلاصة الموضوع كله "اشتقنالج"❤❤❤❤
I experienced this when i travelled to Tanzania, there was barely any signal and internet over there. Best part is that i enjoyed every moment capturing the beautiful country with my own eyes and memory and the saddest part is that i couldnt share wat I saw with my friends and followers! All and all, it was a nice experience but super challenging!

Great decision Anoofah!
Sometimes I have the same feelings regarding social media. There are times when I feel myself very attached to my phone and my apps, and forget to get some peace from them! For sure we live in the digital age, and almost everything is conducted via smartphones, but that for certain doesn't mean getting addicted to them!

Your decision is good for your mental health, and I sometimes do the same, seperate myself from the virtual life a little bit!

May Allah bless you and brighten your way.

What I am going to miss ...

Hello my beautiful readers I feel super guilty for not posting for such a long time I guess MAPP took most of my time or maybe I would have sometime if I managed my time a bit better don't you think ? :p
Anyhow believe it or not almost ONE month left for graduation !! I just don't know how time flies so fast , as much as I am super excited to go back home and re-live my normal life or the life that I love , I know that I will miss this phase of my life. This phase taught me so much about myself and its funny to say this  but MAN!! I am so proud of myself ^^ , so I thought of writing this post as I reflect upon the last 7 months.

There are so many things I will miss when I will go back home ....

- Being fully independent

Living my dream

When I was a little girl I remember telling my siblings that I have two personalities; the first is Noof as they know and the other one is the American personality and I named her "Suzie" how funny is that XDit has always been my dream to visit USA and experience living there .... Guess what

Today I am at United States pursing my masters at University of Pennsylvania 
No Magic was required to make my dream came true all I needed was to "believe that it will happen in the right time " I know this might sound like ridiculous topic to talk about and what a goal !! to me it is not just to live the western life, it is to know my true self without any instructions, to appreciate everything that I have. Also to learn how to be independent. Most importantly I want to inspire others.

The journey to get here took lots of courage and determination I had to be sure that this is what I really wanted and I have to be clear why do I really want it. For me this has made a huge shi…
