6 Things Anyone Who Moves A Lot Knows

Blog

As a child, I was raised by parents who decided to move around every one or two years, whether it was because of a job far away, or shifting from an apartment to a suburban town home of our very own. Some people say “Oh I am sorry. That must have sucked,” but in retrospect, you think it was pretty awesome to get cultured in so many ways. Sure, it was stressful at first but I learned to adjust.

If you were one of those kids, you definitely relate to the following list:

1. Everyone assumes your dad was in the army.

And when you tell them he wasn’t, you have to sit through an entire conversation explaining why you moved so much, and how it really wasn’t as bad as they presume it to be.

2. Everywhere you travel, you will have a group of friends close by.

Going to Austin City Limits music festival and you need a place to crash? No problem! You know your bestie from high school goes to UT and she can totally hook you up with a place to stay.

3. You know how to determine which friends are keepers.

With the number of people you have met, you already know which guy is the jerk just by looking at him. You also know which friends are worth hanging on to for life. #squadgoals for real.

4.  College was an easier transition for you than it was for most people.

New place and new friends? You got this! Talking to people and starting fresh is your forte. You probably even have the emotional strength of a Scorpio and emanate confidence to all your peers.

5. When people ask you where you’re originally from, you tell them the place you lived longest or the place you lived last.

Be honest, your answer to this question changes a lot but who is there to check? I think it’s pretty awesome saying you are from New Jersey, Texas, and India.

6. Your personality is a combination of fragments from all the different places you lived in.

You wouldn’t have been the person you are today, even if you hadn’t lived in one of those areas. You got your accent from Kentucky, a huge appetite from Texas, your love for rap music from New York, and met your soul mate on a mission trip to China. Say what?

What Is Your Life Story?

Motivation & Inspiration, Wellness

I don’t know about you guys, but sometimes I feel a little down when I think of my future career and competing with myself to get better at what I do. I strive to become a successful scarf-wearing news anchor on national television and a well-known YouTuber. I want to improve my speaking/interviewing skills and be able to influence the way in which the news is portrayed. I don’t want it to seem like I am biased in any way just because I openly represent my faith through the way I dress. I want to make it easier for those Muslim women who think they can’t get a job because of their religion and the way they dress. I want to be the best reporter I can be and improve on my filming skills. Those are my career goals. It is up to you guys, my lovely followers to view my videos, help me improve my content by commenting on what you did/didn’t like, subscribe, and share my link to your friends. I truly love every one of you who has supported me in this way 😘.

Throughout the years, I have been changing my mind regarding what I want to do with my life, and identifying who I really am. The change is never going to end, but I have gotten a pretty good sense of my responses to those two questions. When I feel like I am stagnant and not moving forward, I like to watch motivational videos from successful people so I can understand the struggles they went through. It cheers me up and convinces me that hard work will always pay off if you don’t give up easily. There will be crises along the way, but you have to remain unstoppable on this winding journey.

Check out this “Draw My Life” video by famous YouTuber Lilly Singh, aka Superwoman. She has nearly 10 million subscribers and she has literally been all over the world, chilling with her best friend celebrities and politicians worldwide. If she can reach the stars, so can we. I hope this video helps out at least one person.

Fashion & Beauty

I don’t know about you, but I just don’t have the time or money to go out and buy new outfits whenever I have a wardrobe malfunction.

If you are ever in a mini fashion crisis, here are some handy tricks to keep you looking fabulous.

Just when you open your closet and imagine the perfect outfit for the day, you see little fluff balls all over your sweater. Pilling sweaters can be so frustrating that you avoid wearing that sweater all together.

Childhood

Photography

As I look back down memory lane or stare at childhood pictures of myself, the sole question I ask myself is “Who am I?” It’s almost as if I can’t recall growing up so fast.

One year ago, I turned 18. Finally a legal adult. Adult. How did I receive this label that I refuse to accept as a determination of who I am. College hit me hard and I sometimes feel that I need more time to live responsibility-free. I constantly find myself looking for answers, trying to find ways to inspire people, change a life, become a better person, friend, and daughter, pursue a degree, and break into the world of journalism. But then when you think about it. Does any of this stress really matter? Is it necessary?

The children at the mall run around free-spirited, unable to comprehend the concept of life, not knowing what they will do the next day, or what they need to get done. But then again, they don’t need to know because they couldn’t care less. I guess that makes sense. I would rather live life knowing there is a purpose and that there is always a higher “self” I am capable of achieving. When a child gets tired of the fun and games and has no idea what the world has in store for him, what next?

Do you ever feel the same way I do? What conclusion have you come to, or if not, what is on your mind? Let me know what you feel in the comments below.

This song always gets me in the feels. It makes me assess how to run my life and list out things I want to accomplish in this fleeting lifetime so I won’t regret it when I am 60.
