Why I Started Blogging

Aloha people!

How ya doing? This is the first most casual blog I’m writing (or rather typing). In this section I’ll be talking about random topics, tips on random topics, your suggestions (if there are any people reading my blog), and I don’t know.. I’ll surprise you I guess?

I’ll tell you a bit about myself, cuz connecting with people means you have to be transparent about who you are and how well you mean. My name is Nusrath. I’m an 18 year old girl (recently turned 18, so still hyped up about it). I was born and raised in Sri Lanka. I’m a Sri Lankan Malay. I am the eldest child in a family of five. I have one sister and one brother. Like I mentioned in my icebreaker, I’m a very forward and confident person. I love writing (and speaking) about topics I feel are very important. Capturing photographs is what I do in my pastime. I love capturing those moments you might never get again. My mum is my rock. She’s my inspiration. My dad is my biggest fan. My siblings are the typical siblings, adorable and annoying, but I love them to bits. I’m more of a what you’ll call a modern Muslim, I do believe in God completely, I try my best to follow my religion as much as I can, but I am also bold and fearless. I am ready to conquer the world (not literally, but get what I mean?).

As to why I started blogging, I always have wanted to but I needed that extra little push to get me started. I am writing my A/Ls this year. (If you are not familiar with that, in Sri Lanka that’s the final exam you have to sit for as a schooling student. It’s the exam which selects you for university. Sri Lanka provides free education, but to a limited number of students due to limited facilities, and to receive it you have to be one of the top achievers in the country.) So these days I am quite busy preparing for it. However, like any other student I found myself procrastinating. The worst part was I was procrastinating doing nothing. Just sitting and staring at oblivion. So I thought of turning to blogging to divert my procrastinating (or if I stop procrastinating, my well deserved breaks) to something useful, to something I’ve always wanted to do. And here I am.

I guess that’s enough about me for now. I don’t want to bore any of my readers to death. That’ll be terrible cuz I won’t have any readers after that, and it’ll be indirect homicide which I want no part of.

Until we meet again, adios amigo!

    1. I don’t know what Citizens Band radio is, but it sure does sound like it’s the the last century’s blogging. Blogging is quite the thing though. I know now that I’ve started it. I love the positive vibes it gives you.

  5. Hi Nursrath, nice to read about you and your family. It’s a great thing that your dad is your great fan, and you have fun with your siblings. When I was little (I have 5 younger siblings and one older sister), we fought, and we turned around to be friends! That’s the strange and fun part about siblings!

    1. Yup, so true! I don’t know how I missed this comment. My sister and I have a 6 year age gap, my brother and I a 10 year gap. They are amazing! I just wish they grew up a bit faster, to diminish the evident age gap! 😊

  6. Thanks for sharing so much about yourself. I’m an American and as you know my society’s views on Muslims is so fear-based. Fear is often caused by ignorance. Your words help dispell those fears and ignorance with understanding and appreciation. So congrats on starting your blog. I hope you keep it up.

  9. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a little bit, but other than that, this is magnificent blog. An excellent read. I will certainly be back.

    1. Hey Ula! I just found the spam comment folder in my blog. I don’t know why these comments are marked as spam. 😲 You mean pics of what exactly? Thanks so much though! I love your blog too! It’s amazing! Love! ❀️

      1. I use quotation marks (“) around words that I don’t mean literally…I am not actually meeting you in person–I am meeting you in a virtual (online) context…I’m not literally following you (as in walking behind you) so I put quotation marks around the word…does that make sense to you? Written communication leaves lots of room for miscommunication , so sometimes I end up overcompensating πŸ™‚

        View Comment
        1. Well.. That was definite overcompensation in that case! πŸ˜‚ And yup, it made plenty of sense. But I don’t think you actually need to do that cuz this is an online world where everyone knows that you don’t mean it literally (I’m just saying)! At the same time, thanks for teaching me something new! πŸ˜†

  11. HI, as both a parent and a teacher I should tell you to study, but as a fellow human who gets sidetracked all the time-I say don’t worry you will do great on your exam! Thanks for posting!

    1. Hello there! Thanks a lot for the concern. I use this to wake myself up in the morning. It’s 4.16am now. I usually don’t wake up atleast until 6am to study. So I use this to wake me up to study and get a lot of work done in the morning! 😊

  12. Hiya, Nusrath – so, I came (at your kind invitation) – I saw your lovely photographs and read a little about you and … what would you suggest I look at next. You got any stories that you’ve written?
    Hope you having a great day. πŸ™‚
    Kindness – Robert.

    1. Hello again Robert! Nope, not as yet. But I sure will post a good story or two. I’m just very busy these days (and will be until the 19th of August which is when my exams are done). After that though, you’ll most certainly get tired of all of my endless posting. Until then, it comes as it comes. 😊

  13. Now Nusrath, you take me 20 years in a moment in life, like the photographs you capture because you can’t and wouldn’t have those moments back. Had I know at that age what I see you knowing and embracing now, my life would have turned out much differently. But then there is no time for melancholy, all what I now know is great and so will your future be great if you keep at all you do. Embrace all the opportunities, be bolder ask questions, read and write and snap more pictures. Using procrastination ‘time’ this creatively and nurturing will produce better results than dreaming into oblivion. You’ll make your A levels if you work hard which I think you do

          1. Oh that’s what I meant, we talk similar age ain’t not limitation really. You are 18 and know some words I don’t even at 20 years older. It is in peace I make such remarks girl, to chuckle over lol

          2. Nusrath, let me be honest with you. Thank you so much for blogging. I have never met nor exchanged words with someone from Sri Lanka knowingly. May be at some conference you know but I can’t tell. That is why after those beautiful pictures and someone’s comment that your place could be Miami, I read your why you blog. I also found your tagline and style daring for a Muslim Girl and since am a daring woman too, of course I love meeting other daring and unconventional people. Thank you for the perspectives. When I first met someone from Myanmar (never heard of there too, only Burma) that was when I lived in Dubai, I was very touched and candidly impressed. The world is such a small place and we are more alike than different. All these human barriers are doing more harm and creating more prejudices than ever. So you still young girl, you keep at it, embrace your world and the Universe and live your legacy Namatse

          3. Thank you so much Marie! All what you say are truly going to stick with me. It really does mean a lot. When you started with to be honest with you, I was thinking ‘what did I do wrong?’. Stupid me. Thanks a lot again! I shall I shall I shall! Embrace the world and live my legacy! Much much love! ❀️

          4. Hahaha Nusrath, I sincerely wished for that effect in using that starter of a phrase. It was a risk: use that and get her take the rest of your comment seriously; or use that and risk her wondering who the hell you are or why read the rest of the dang comment and maybe even delete same before wishing she hadn’t. Now it’s official: you are wise beyond your age and will be more alert to the world than what e channel and Cinderella illusions have to offer…Go go go girl

          5. It was always official! πŸ˜‰ I hope I meet you in person someday. I have a feeling we’ll be having a good time instantly. Your comments make my day by the way. All the time. You’re amazing Marie! ❀️

          6. You may not know but I love globe trotting. So, where you are is a few flights, bus hope, train jumps and mild hikes from me. And maybe a cruise into the mix? I’ll love too visit and have show me that villa. When I first saw that picture I foolishly wondered if you had taken that picture from inside the compound lol. Write me at info@marieabanga.com and you seriously have you an older friend for life. Enjoy the weekend and hope you get a free copy of my poetry book when the promoting starts in a few hours. Tell all your friends, it’s free for five days

          7. Hopefully if and when you do visit, the villa is the same. 😊 The promoting starts in your website? I’ll love to get a free copy of it! I’ll write to you for sure. Thanks for the email address.

          8. Nus, just click on that cover and it takes you to the Amazon and you’ll get it there at 00:00 for five full days. As for the villa, let’s just say keeping my fingers and toes crossed. Insert a smiley of your choice here ( am clueless about inserting those o)

  15. Damn, just started blogging and already you have 136 comments. You must have told people you know about it ha ha. I don’t do that, because otherwise I wouldn’t feel free to speak my mind, unfortunately. But that’s because I’ve got secrets.

  18. Amazing, I love your attitude . Keep blogging and I look forward to reading your post. Recently I visited Sri Lanka for the first time and I was blown away with the natural beauty of the place and how clean the country is. I stayed there only for 4 days. I still have several place which I want to come back and see in the future.
