Aish de Terre.: Privilege. →
aish-de-terre: I’ve seen this new phenomena circulating the interweb recently: privilege. It’s mainly white privilege or man privilege I hear of. Or white woman privilege in some extreme cases.

In sha Allah I’ll be doing this more and more in the following days.
It really isn’t hard for me to envisage that the time between now and me potentially going to uni is going to be spent alone, sat in my house. I want to enjoy my free time and go out and do a few things but I’ve got nobody to do anything with. My one remaining friend here is always busy with work and on her days off she wants to “lie in”.
