There’s this girl I know: part 1

There’s a girl I know who studies at my uni. I was introduced to her through a mutual friend who said that I would totally dig this chick as she’s into anime and Japanese (woot woot!) and because she can speak Chelha (something I would love to one day learn). Chelha, for those of you who might not know, is a dialect of the Amazigh language, spoken by Berbers who are the indigenous people of North Africa. Today, they are mostly concentrated in Morocco and Algeria although there are groups scattered all across North and West Africa, as well as diasporas in Europe/the West.

She’s in her second year, doing Physics (:-O). She’s a Dutch citizen, born and raised in the Netherlands and is of Moroccan Berber origin (from the Souss region - near Agadir to be exact). She can speak Chelha and Dutch fluently, of course, and her English is impeccable. She is also taking a Japanese language module as part of her course.

Here goes…

Bismillah.

Ok, so here goes. My first ‘personal’ blog post.

Since I’ve started my Tumblr (just over a month ago), I’ve been mostly browsing, reblogging, liking, etc. (when I ever actually go on, that is). I’ll post a quote every now and again but nothing much, nothing original (i.e. coming from me - I’m fully aware that most things aren’t ‘original’ in the sense most people understand the word).

But I’d like this to change, insha’Allah.

Of course, this isn’t the ideal time for me to start (final year at uni - EEK!). And I mean, maths is difficult enough as it is without having a wonderfully alluring dashboard, filled with thought-provoking posts, quotes and pictures. And memes - God, how I love those memes.

Anyhow, regardless of it being the perfect time or not, I’m gonna do my absolute BESTEST to keep up with some regular posts.

NB: My understanding of the word regular will fluctuate in accordance with my coursework deadlines, revision workload and my levels of CBA-ness. I will try my utmost to keep the last to a minimum.

For sure, I’ll be keeping up with reading posts, insha’Allah. Heck, I’ve already learnt so much just from randomly clicking about.

But for now, I think this’ll do.

Peace out!
