In the past 10 years I have:

1. Gotten married younger than most girls in my social circle. Those who used to be stuck up around me are still single posting about their “girls trips” on SM.

2. Have our own house and a car 

3. Do what I love when everyone else is slaving away for acceptance in the community.

But 2020 the best year, I just know it.

a couple of Surahs... alhamdulillah

The tongue gets tied, so you make that dua asking Allah(سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) to untie the tongue.

They are heavy.

أَيُّ شَيءٍ وَجَدَ مَن فَقَدَ اللهَ ؟ وَ أَيّ شَيءٍ فَقَدَ مَن وَجَدَ اللهَ ؟

What has he found who has lost God? And what has he lost who has found God?

—Ibn ‘Ata’ Allah Al-Iskandari

What has he found who has lost Allah, and what has he discovered who has found Allah? They can never be equal; the one who has found Allah has found everything and the one who has lost Him has lost everything.

The original source of the words of ibn 'Ata I quoted above appear to be Imam Husayn (عليه السلام) in his supplication on the day of Arafah.

I will start:sunglasses:.I accomplished 

1. A baby (after a very high risk pregnancy) even without being high risk a baby is still an accomplishment.:D

2. Masters Degree

3. A divorce (something I should have 'accomplished' in the past decade but better late than never :p)

4. I bought my first car with my own money lolz 

5. Won the mod elections on ShiaChat :grin:

6. Blessed with Ziyaraats :NH:

7. Learned not to give a hoot about what people think or say.

8. Learned to upload gifs on ShiaChat.

That's about it. 

# 1 and # 3 sound particularly painful. But it inspires people like me who still have a lot to accomplish in life. God bless you sister, and hope your list of non-painful accomplishments continue to grow :)

The new decade starts in 2021, not 2020. There was no year 0. 

So you got one year left to accomplish something. 

Thanks. I'm thinking of taking up farming. 

But this post is still a party pooper post.

1] l just can't imagine you being so excited -rather than pleased- over Shadow's work. And . . .  it's your hair. You can pull it out if you want to. :D

2] OK, but for every "partially disagree" you give me, l'II send you a little snake.

Question: Doesn't use of recriminating,numerical accounting on a forum, such as 2xthis for 1xthat,  portend intellectual dishonesty?  :respect:

I haven't achieved much in terms of accomplishments, but one thing really big I did was finally change my priorities for the better.

1. Finally quit learning Japanese after 7 years. Everything in my life was second to this silly hobby; my religion, my ambitions, my education.

2.Finally started learning Arabic after saying "Yeah I'll get to that after Japanese". 

3.Finally started working towards my career after saying ""Yeah I'll get to that after Japanese".

4.Finally started my education after saying "Yeah I'll get to that after Japanese". 

 

Moral of the story: Don't be a weeb. Don't let your life revolve around entertainment, God and the afterlife should be your top top priorities.

l was gone to the store, ate out, post office, and went to the bank today. l kept hearing these echos of sardonic laughter eminating from the foothills of the Himalayas --half a World away. l kinda figured from who. So when l sat down a few minutes ago, gone from the keyboard for only about three hours, l have these notifications. She has gone back to April 2009 and started clicking a few partialities agreements. l guess, with these distances involve, a simple homicide is out of the question. So she is trying to do-me-in  by sillycide.  :grin:
