Ramadan Mubarak! and an update!

Just wanted to say to my lovely brothers and sisters in Islam a RAMADAN MUBARAK!

May we make the most of this blessed month inshaAllah!

Sorry I haven't been updating on much everyone! Been extremely busy with honours. But alhamdulillah I think I'm coping.

So I am 3 assessments into honours. I got my marks back for them and they were really good ALHAMDULILLAH!

But I won't lie. I am stressed. The other week my cell culture got contaminated. I thought I would get SO much done in the week that my supervisors were away on conference and when they would be back they would be impressed with all the stuff that I got done and all my results. But no :(

In the week that they were gone, I did practically no wet lab work that would go towards my thesis :(

Insha Allah everything will go well. INSHA ALLAH.

I am not going to quit! Speaking of quitting, the med student in our lab doing his ILP with us quit. He quit while I was away doing my introductory seminar. It's sad :( I thought we were all in this together. But it turns out he wasn't coping and just couldn't get stuff. I don't want to be like that. To be honest, I NEED to do honours.

On a happier  note, I made cupcakes!

I made the blue-pink cupcakes. The mono-coloured cupcakes were made by my mum. Actually, my mum made the actual cake bit in the blue-pink pic. It's just that I decorated the cake with the buttercream icing. And my sister added the sprinkles on top.
Go teamwork!

So I actually brought the mono-coloured cupcakes for my lab colleagues to eat. And they really liked it. Some didn't even know who brought the cakes but just took one when they saw it on the table. LOL. But yeah. They were pretty cute. Maybe I should've made the icing a different flavour (or perhaps should've suggested to my mum). Such a pity my actual supervisors couldn't taste any though since they were away on conference.

So it's Ramadan now. It's the middle of the year and I need to focus on my Honours now and most importantly, on my Ibaadah. It might be a while before you guys hear from me again.

But until then inshaAllah!
