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.

The Life of Chris

Life was hard for Chris, but he did not give up on himself. He has always wanted to be a writer, however constant bullying from school and in his neighbourhood drove him to suicide at the age of 14. With God’s will, his best-friend was always there for him and helped brought him back. Still, with all of these events happening he did not care so after the suicide scenario he continued looking forward pursuing his interest in sports, that is football. This did not require hands, Chris thought to himself, so he did just that.

Fortnite

The true happiness is in Fortnite.
It is the best game in my sight.
In Fortnite there are dogs, you might get a bite.
When you look at the sun in Fortnite it’s not even bright.
Fortnite is my best game.
Whenever I no-scope somebody, I say damn.

On democracy

Democracy is a type of political system that requires a popular vote to take place to elect the leader of the country and other officials. Simply said, the leaders are chosen by the people. Democracy is almost used everywhere around the world, including the United States, the United Kingdom, and others. Here are some advantages and disadvantages of democracy.

More than meets the eye

Lookism is a form of ideology that is solely based on appearance. People form opinions or ideas and make decisions about something or someone based on outer appearance and this brings a lot of negative side-effects. This ideology affects the current society in many different ways from our behavior, social standards and perceptions, lookism is very ‘physical-based’ and extremely shallow.

Who took my time?

Many months ago, I was stalking Vivy Yusof’s Instagram page and she posted videos of a talk she attended on her Instastory. It was pretty late. I had just put my daughter to bed, and because I did not want the sound of the video to wake her up, I watched the videos without its sound. Couldn’t be bothered to take my headphones downstairs either. Watched the video, read the caption to one of the videos, which immediately caught my attention.

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.

Ready, set, GOAL

Football is one of the most merry sports there is. 22 men chasing after 1 ball. But, they all have a goal. Place the ball into the net. That is the goal.

Needless to say, having a goal gives us direction. That everything planned or executed, is with the intention of meeting the goal. Every argument, debate, disagreements, hustling, strategies, all happen in order to meet the goal.

Fight song

We have all been hearing and reading about how our current young generation lack knowledge because they do not read. Abedeen students have reading time. There are times they are taken to the library to do some reading. During these times, they are allowed to ask their teacher for meaning, pronunciation, etc. At other times, the teacher would read them stories. It is part of our effort to create a future generation of leaders who read.
