A Little Less Square, a Little More Round

Lately I’ve been feeling rather soft, like some kind of pillow full of fluffy stuff. Maybe more like the fluffy stuff than the pillow itself. That softness has become the core, the foundation, the essence of who I am. Or have I become the softness? Have you ever shifted into a consistent state of being, […]

A Few Words on Meditation

Meditation makes me feel fresh, like a newly picked mango or tart juice from a thick lime. Sometimes meditation makes me feel like white sheets drying on the clothes line in a cool breeze. That is all. – Aminah Jamil

Career Change, Website, and Medium

Hello my friends. This will be a quick and straight-to-the-point post. I recently began posting on Medium, which I am enjoying very much! The platform, the ease of use, the community, and much more has me hooked. My most recent post is here, if you’d like to take a gander: Embrace the Pivot: How to […]

I Should Change My Middle Name to “Pivot”

Despite the pivoting I’ve experienced throughout my career life, the one thing that’s always been consistent is writing. Every single job I’ve had to do, writing was a big part of it. So I guess I should cut myself some slack, huh?

I Just Moved to Albania

Welcome to Albania It’s been two days since I arrived in Albania. I’m still quite a bit jet lagged and all that, but I’m mostly happy to be here. Anxiety was beginning to take over my life back in America, so much so that it was becoming harder and harder to focus on the things […]

Sleepless in Phoenix

Today is the big day: my permanent overseas move. I’m hesitant to write the exact location until I’m actually there. Perhaps a little bit of childhood jinx residue left over from past disappointments. I’m supposed to be up in 2 hours, but I can’t sleep. The majority of yesterday was spent running errands and clearing […]

Tomorrow I’m Leaving

Right now it’s 8:14am PST and I just finished meditating. It’s either overcast or there’s a haze of really bad air hovering over the south Phoenix mountains. I’m sitting here, paralyzed, because I still have quite a bit to pack and quite a few errands to run while I still have my car. Tomorrow I’m […]

Life Moves Faster Than Me

Hello my dear readers, It is I, Aminah, back for an update because I’ve been gone for a long minute, a minute longer than I’d anticipated. My last post (I think I published it…) was about my new moves: teaching English in Korea, getting my TESOL, etc. not necessarily in that order. Guess what? THOSE […]

This Life and All Its Things

Greetings my frenz, I hope you all are doing well! As this post is titled, I wanted to talk about life and what’s been going on. As my post Rediscovering My Inner INFJ talked about a little bit, my life has been going through some changes lately. From quitting my corporate job to realizing that […]

When Your Life Stops but the World Keeps Going

Even though I do my best to keep my Reddit experience to just the things I want/need to see, sometimes things outside of that creep in. Today there was a post about Frank Ocean losing his little brother and as soon as I saw that, my heart broke into a thousand little pieces. Frank Ocean […]
