Just one more day left in the semester. Two exams. I am paralyzed by fear. Could do nothing but snack mindlessly all afternoon and now find myself in a despondent funk. I am in that headspace where I am watching all the dominoes fall one by one in my mind…I’m gonna do poorly on the […]
I can’t believe it has been exactly a year since I started Running-Muslimah-now-The-Muslim-Orange. So many changes, memories, upheavals…what a year. Happy 1st Birthday to The Muslim Orange!
So I’m sure a lot…or some…or maybe none of you, are wondering about the name change. Over the past few months I’ve felt like my original purpose for starting this blog has changed. I was going through my earlier entries and they mostly all fell in line with the theme of working out and fitness, […]

‘Tis raining. Or was. Is. Whoa, thunder. Shook the whole house just now. The Sister accidentally kicked the cat in the face in her haste to answer the door for my mom. I arrived home about half an hour before the sun faded away and the clouds rolled in. As I sat outside and felt […]
This all-encompassing heat has been taking a toll on me. Just walking across campus is a nightmare. Every time I inhale, I feel like I’m breathing in scorched vacuum.
