Alright lets go:

Favorite quote

“Sometimes when I look at you, I feel I’m gazing at a distant star.
It’s dazzling, but the light is from tens of thousands of years ago.
Maybe the star doesn’t even exist any more. Yet sometimes that light seems more real to me than anything.”  – Haruki Murakami

Meaning behind my blog name
Sis and I always see happiness in the little things. And I say even if things are bad, I still have a good life because I focus on things that make me happy.

My collections
I have a pretty awesome music collection. I know everyone has music on their computers and phones but I ‘collect’ music. I have albums of artists you have never heard of and I curate playlists every now and then on Soundcloud.
I used to burn my own CDs and design covers for them back in the day, now I just download MP3s.

Difficult times in my life
I have depression and anxiety and it makes life hard sometimes. Everyday is a struggle but I try my best to focus on the positive. I have a couple of awesome friends who help me get through the bad times.

Most used apps in your phone

Best thing that happened this year
My current job, my trip to Lahore in March, my One Plus 3 phone, and the last thing is yet to happen in December for which I am really excited! Update coming soon.

Dream job
I joined my current workplace this year and I think its pretty much a dream job. I get to illustrate comics, do social work, attend events, travel and my colleagues are the loveliest bunch. Not most people get to say this but I already have a dream job MA.

  1. Hey! Would love to see Atiya’s 30 answers. Please please do a detailed post on online shopping for international brands esp through facebook pages, what brands deliver here, etc, etc. You shopped from Ali Express, I read quite a few blogs complaining that it delivered them unoriginal cosmetics. How was your experience?

    • Atiya’s post will be up soon.
      I have bought a lot of clothes and accessories from Ali Express, but never makeup. I already know where original branded makeup is available so I know better not to shop from Ali Express. That website sells replicas of everything. So looking for original stuff is sorta silly to be honest.
      As far as clothes go, I got some good quality shirts and some shitty quality shirts 😛 So I have learnt which stuff is good and what is bad quality. I look at reviews and pictures of people who have bought them to get an idea of size and quality. So far only two things i bought were bad, the rest have been my most worn things in my closet. 😀
