1. 'unjust' won an award. jo's film won a special jury award at the 'movies that matter' film festival, 24-30 march 2011, the hague, yay!
2. 'just write'. i've been devouring the web recently for articles, blogs and websites on writing tips and tools. the most consistent advice i found was nicely summed up by aisha- 'just write'! indeed. like with anything else, first you need to begin, and then you need to keep going. in between, you will put in the necessary time and effort to become good, inshallah.

3. making plans with a friend. in this huge new city where just the people i know (excluding H's family!) can be counted on my fingers, let alone any friends i may have, it is wonderful to make girly plans and have something to look forward to at the end of the week :)
