eight photos of me because @amira_f98 took 32 so one is clearly not enough. i'd apologise but then @fatimakabid will shout at me for not loving myself & for saying sorry so maybe not this time.
here's a random illustration i found on my phone that i decided to post because i'm sat in a lecture on political economy during 'the great depression' & it's so boring i needed to find something to do / #artbyhawwa
i drew on a wall at university. (& even though i honestly don't like it, at least i can put 'university mural commission' and 'live art for a staff launch event' on my CV so that's a pro). (also the end is me kicking the air for no apparent reason, don't ask me how i make my life decisions because i really don't know) filmed + edited: @temne_conteh track: 'serenity' by @stylezconteh / #artbyhawwa
@janellemonae - #artbyhawwa (yeah i really tried using colour for a portrait for the first time)
okay so let's just talk about the fact that this shot was completely undirected/not posed at all, i saw a moment and moved as quickly as i could to get the framing that i wanted and snapped the photo. and then my little sister said the hand ruins it why is his hand there and my dad said i love it and you're welcome, my hand makes the shot. i love some good old family support / #hawwaexplores
i was going to write a motivational caption like keep on swimming you can do this blah blah but honestly half the time i feel like i'm drowning. it's okay though. i remember ages ago someone said that if everything in life was going smoothly for you, then you should be worried, because maybe that meant Allah was giving you this life, and not the next & that freakin scared me. so whenever i feel like i'm drowning i think about how i should be grateful about all the things i have in life, and that even if i feel like i'm going crazy i should always say alhamdulillah. and yeah, that's it. back to my seminar reading now.
