Will power

Smoking is harmful for your health as it causes a lot of diseases. We see people around us who smoke and then suffer from diseases like heart attack, stroke, psoriasis and diabetes. Fortunately, there are some ways to stop smoking. However, if you keep smoking for a long time, you may end up dying or living a insufferable life.
The most important step in quitting smoking is to forget smoking by making yourself busy with activities. When our mind is focused on doing something or new things, we tend to ignore the urge to smoke.

A shoulder to cry on

When I was 12 years old, I had a lot of friends. Looking back now, my best friend was someone I really never thought as a friend. She is Alaa. I met Alaa at Abedeen Academy. At first I thought she did not want to be my friend and she looked like she hated me too. But now we are best friends!! Alaa is a nice girl, she respects everyone, even the people she does not know. In 2017, I came to Abedeen and met Alaa.

Chicken Soup for the mind

It has been a while since I have had some time to catch a breather. The Eid-Ul Fitr break has come at just the right time. While I get ready to rejoice and celebrate, I cannot help but be reminded of the death by suicide of two very well known figures; one in fashion and design and the other in culinary. Yes, I am talking about the passing of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain, both of whom took their own lives out of depression. They are not the first.
