    What are you reading?

    So I finally completed the Ursula le Guinn book - The Left Hand of Darkness. Part of the ending was really frickin sad though, never saw it coming. I had to restart it because I felt I was too stupid to figure out what the heck was going on, and I was, and then I thought I'd just plod through it because I have never not finished a book, no matter how much I didn't understand it. Halfway through, I realised that it was two people telling the story and then it clicked and I actually enjoyed it. It was a lot of walking through snow though and then very anticlimatic with what happened at the end.

    What are you reading?

    It's not her teenage years, she's just writing in that 'dear diary' style. I suppose people feel that it's more real and enjoy that but I don't. It's not an autobiography but almost a motivational type of book. A student loaned it to me and she said it had a profound effect on her. I can see why, knowing the student's background and life experience, but it's really not for me. It's not all bad, some parts are interesting and could be useful as motivational bits for students.

    What are you reading?

    I'm currently reading Shonda Rhimes' A Year of Yes. I'm not enjoying. It's like diary entries by a teenager 😕

    What are you reading?

    I love the stories and I used to read them once a year but haven't been able to recently. I watch the LOTR movies to get me by when I miss it though, but I hate the Hobbit movies so I'd rather read the book. I'm trying to decide if I should start re-reading Ice and Fire series but since there is no date for the next book release it seems like it may not be worth it. I know that once I am done reading for the phd I'm going to take a year off academic readings and just indulge in sci-fiction and fantasy.

    I managed to complete Allegiant. Glad to be done with it. I've come home with Shonda Rhimes' Year of Yes. A student gave it to me. I've got the Silmarillion as well to re-read. Hopefully I'll get to indulge in my old past time of an annual LOTR and Hobbit read.

    What are you reading?

    Anyone read Ursula LeGuin? A colleague really loves her work and loaned me a couple of books but I've really struggled to get into it. I literally fall asleep after about 20 minutes of reading it but I'm trying to push through 😕

    Last film you watched?

    BLACK PANTHER YASSS It was a good movie. Not your typical superhero movie with a typical superhero plot it felt deeper and more relevant to political issues but you could still see the heroism. important movie for this generation to watch i liked it. and All The Stars by Kendrick Lamar and SZA is a beautiful song - the offical music video is very good too!

    1- Emission of Semen It is a thick white liquid which exits in spurts due to sexual stimulation and is followed by a loss of strength. Its scent resembles that of a rotten egg. The need for a ghusl is stated in Allah’s saying: “If you are in a state of janaba (ritual impurity), purify yourself (bathe your whole body).”(Al-Ma’idah:6) And the Prophet’s ﷺ saying: “When you ejaculate, take a ghusl.” [ narrated by Abu Dawud.] source: https://www.al-feqh.com/en/al-ghusl
