Coffee with Ameena #15

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you how this week I was looking through some of my old pictures when I was 15/16, in my first year of university, and I smiled at how I look nothing like what I used to look like then. I lived differently, loved differently, dressed differently, reacted differently.… Continue reading Coffee with Ameena #15

Coffee with Ameena #14

If we were having coffee, I'd tell you I spend way too much time on Pinterest reading grey's anatomy quotes, even though I do not watch the series. It's so bad that I already have a favorite, simply from reading the series quotes. Her name's Amelia. If we were having coffee, I'd see your raised… Continue reading Coffee with Ameena #14

Coffee with Ameena: The marriage list

If we were having coffee, I'd apologise for having only caffeinated black coffee at the table. I am one of those coffee snobs who judge people that drink full cream coffee or decaffeinated coffee; please don't judge me for judging you. As we sip our coffee and exchange pleasantries, I wouldn't bore you about my… Continue reading Coffee with Ameena: The marriage list

That time my brain failed me…

"Do you know, I can't remember what you got me for my birthday". This was the statement which greeted me, one October evening. To rephrase it, my sister was telling me, the birthday gift I so thoughtfully put together for her, wrapped with love and money too, was all useless because she couldn't even remember… Continue reading That time my brain failed me…
