Conversations with people I love, discussing exciting plans, make me swell with happiness and feel all lovely
Why do people think roses on a bed is romantic? Yes I really want decaying organic matter covering the area where I’m going to be sleeping. Cheesecake and pizza, now those are two romantic things you could put on a bed.
I’d happily be alone for the rest of my life, if I had a constant supply of cheesecake.
The media’s repeated scapegoating of the Muslim population and its continual ‘clash of civilisations’ narrative must be challenged. It is time we recognise and fight against the distorted depictions of Muslims we see every day in the media. When a Muslim murders a white man it is denounced as terrorism and considered worthy of rolling news coverage but when a Muslim is killed in a racist attack, like the one on 75 year-old Mohammed Saleem in Birmingham earlier this month, it is treated as a one-off murder and largely ignored. These blatant double standards are not acceptable."
I like drinking coffee alone, and reading alone.
I like riding the bus alone, and walking home alone.
It gives me time to think, and set my mind free.
I like eating alone, and listening to music alone.
But when I see a mother with her child;
A girl with her lover;
Or a friend laughing with their best friend;
I realize that even though I like being alone
I don’t fancy being lonely.
