Absence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder?

I have been absent from social media for over 3 months, a length I never wanted but such is life.

27 Things I’ve learned in 27 Years

I’ve been 27 for an entire month now and unfortunately I didn’t enter 27 with the best of starts, but regardless I wanted to share this post on rabiaqureshi.com.
