Well hello there

I'm glad you've found me! Welcome to my blog. I am an abnormal teen though you don"t see it at first. Strange once you do and funny if you know what to look for. I appreciate creepers like no other! Look around and get to know me a little bit :)

can be found anywhere. This idea was brought to the front of my mind yesterday, and I just now realized what it meant. So what does it mean? It means that no matter how old, tall, strong, smart, wise someone is, they can teach you something. Therefore they are a teacher to you. For example, most of you may have read over some of my posts and thought, this kid is so(synonym of stupid here) and maybe you can't learn anything new from me. Or from any of your other teachers, but you have to give people a chance, because

Those who don't seek answers will never find them.
Obviously I'm not telling you to go up to a stranger and ask for the meaning of the universe, but we could all learn something, if even a small thing from someone new.

My own experience recently actually occurred yesterday, in REC (Religious Education Center, where we Ismailis go to learn about our religion) my mom was talking about the possibility of introducing calligraphy into the course. My mom is my teacher. The class is for 8th-9th graders and the young woman thats will be teaching us calligraphy is 10 years old. You can imagine the reaction from the class when my mom added that the teacher would like to be called Ms.

Because as dignified teenagers we are above the idea of learning something from someone younger than us. It is ridiculous how people in general allow their EGO to run their life. People need to take control. I don't really understand what an ego is on first glance. So I did some thinking, and my personal definition of ego is a monster deep inside your brain made of all the insecurities, anger, and resentment mushed together. This monster is not very aesthetically appealing so it acts as a gamer, it doesn't care who or what it hurts, offends, or destroys, because at the end of the day. We have to pick up the pieces and start all over again.


  1. Wow! I recently learned about the EGO and what it can do to us and I'm in my 30's! Way to go Aly (I'm Zaahira, Jasmine's sister, nice to virtually meet you!) I will be in Miami this Friday, hope to meet you sometime :)
    So the way we weaken this EGO is step outside of our thoughts and have an awarenss of what our mind is thinking. It takes practice but eventually the EGO dissapears in more life situations for those who choose awareness over being engulfed in false thoughts. :)

  2. It's great to meet you! I've heard so many great things :) It took me a little but I get what you're saying! Welcome to the EGO awareness club! I really do look forward to meeting you in person
