Ten Things I Hate About Me by Randa Abdel-FattahRanda Abdel-Fattahs new novel about finding your place in life . . . and learning to accept yourself and your culture.
At school Im Aussie-blonde Jamie -- one of the crowd. At home Im Muslim Jamilah -- driven mad by my Stone Age dad. I should win an Oscar for my acting skills. But I cant keep it up for much longer...
Jamie just wants to fit in. She doesnt want to be seen as a stereotypical Muslim girl, so she does everything possible to hide that part of herself. Even if it means pushing her friends away because shes afraid to let them know her dad forbids her from hanging out with boys or that she secretly loves to play the darabuka (Arabic drums).
Things I Hate About Myself
10 Things I HATE About You, Grief
Self-doubt is my enemy right now. I feel it constantly, nagging at the back of my mind, just burrowing in and building a nice little nest for itself. No one will go through the entirety of their lives without self-doubt creeping in. Or without feeling a little lost. And it hits some of us harder than others.
Self-hate is a dark, black hole in our soul that can be easy to fall into, but difficult to get out of. Last week I wrote about some of the reasons why people hate themselves. The truth is you are NONE of those things. Nobody can make you love you other than you! And if I act better, I will feel better.
A lot of the times I like to be away from people, and I wish it was an okay thing to be. To anyone. AT ALL. I shut everyone out on purpose and I never know why. I hope everyone gets the meaning about this.
Things I really hate about myself: • I either love way too hard or not at all. • I'm so fucking awkward, I can't say babe without sounding like I'm weirded out or.

Give them all to me and right now. These are the movies my sister and I quote relentlessly. It drives the people around us insane but we are who we are so sorrynotsorry. My favorite character is not Julia Stiles as the tough as nails older sister, Heath freaking Ledger as the bad boy, or even the little sister who is desperate to be popular. No, my favorite character in this movie is the dad. He is the BEST. He is the perfect foil for his two capricious daughters whom he is raising all alone.
