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 XD it 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 shift in the way I perceive my goals.

It was not an easy thing to chase at all, I still recall some of my colleagues have put me down saying there won't be any chance for me to go. But I did :) Have faith in your dream, chase it as it will happen eventually nothing is impossible . Surround yourself with positive people who believes in you.

This doesn't tell you that I have achieved everything I wanted! I still have more to go and I know with hard work and faith I will get there !! I am really grateful for my family support although my parents were not so excited about me moving away from them. And I truly appreciate those who believed in me and know that I can achieve what I always aim for

More responsibilities are on its way! and hopefully I will be up to them

Keep your happy thoughts coming

Where Are We Now - Week 1

Hello my readers am back with first update of Ramadan Schedule

Let me tell you one thing I know for sure : it is real fun when you plan how will you spend the next month or  two , planning itself will change your entire mood , and will change your way of thinking to accomplishing things








So after my plan I was aiming to start implementing from day one ! I actually did face a little of a challenge to start all the items !! I  guess the discipline part needs improvement too ><"


The only challenge I have faced was managing my sleeping hours , and that of course has affected my entire schedule , I am one of those people who can not really function well when I don't get my beauty sleep .


I made a small journal in which I use to keep track of how well a doing








You can tell exactly where the push ! and maybe a slap is needed :P just kidding ....
after reviewing the schedule I kept thinking if I need some sort of a prompt reminder on my phone this way maybe I wont forget to fini…

My Experience with NO Snapchat

How did it start

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

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 ....
