*taps mic* Is this thing on?
Hi, my name is Zainab. I live outside of DC. I’m 25 — meaning I’m just another year into this longass, Joseph Campbell-approved journey to becoming an adult — and a Sagittarius — so you knoooow I’m infuriatingly charming, impulsive and exhaustive.
I’ve had a magical and surreal adventure the past few years, and along the way, I’ve learned a trick or two to keep faking it even when you’re not making it.
That’s what this blog’s going to be all about:
It’s the little lessons I’ve learned like depuffing your face after you bawl your eyes out ten minutes before you’re due to take your seat on a panel at a conference. Or how to transition last night’s eye makeup and pajamas into daywear, a la my hero, Liz Lemon. And *slaps roof of blog*, this bad boy will fit a lot of Sixers and NBA takes in it.
And since life’s one big trial-and-mostly-error experiment, I’m going to report back on everything I’m doing — whether we’re talking getting microneedling to get rid of these acne scars or trying to pull off a $2 revision nose job by tanning on some contour. Will it work? Will I fail spectacularly? That’s half the fun of things. We’ll find out on the way.
I’m still here for the adventure of a lifetime, and hoo boy, I sure am glad to have you along for the ride.
All of my love,
