I use words like thugs and siyah.

I have a lot of friends – thugs, sefeed people, PERSIAN, siyah’s, etc. Okay, I don’t actually refer to my friends like that… anymore. I was raised in a pretty lenient household – I was free to do what I wanted (sex not included), stay out late, go out with friends, etc. But that doesn’t mean I was safe from hate. […]

What is failure?

I have had a mental timeline for my life (don’t laugh): I would graduate college at 21 (check), get my masters’ at 23, have a kick-ass career by 25 (and be financially stable), get engaged 26-27, get married 27-28, and have my first baby at 31.5. I know, I know. Ridiculous. Having goals is what […]

How to Keep HER Interested

After Nima’s post last week on how to keep guys interested – deleshoon bekhad – I think it’s high time someone spelled it out for all the men in our lives who seem to only know how to complain about women. “Women are so confusing.” Um no. Big shout out to our joons who contributed […]

Relationships are like a Math Problem

Relationships can be fraught with all kinds of disagreements that fall on the spectrum from petty to apocalyptic, and frankly you need to have disagreements. But how can you fight like hell without it falling (entirely) to pieces? *disclaimer: I am not a relationship therapist. Just sharing what’s worked for me. Treat your disagreements like a […]

6 American Foods I Don’t Get as an Iranian AMERICAN

I don’t consider myself a foodie: a pretentious term used for people who eat super expensive meals in tiny portions. … but I love food. Like, hi I’m Persian, I need more than one bite of koobideh. My American side loves burgers, hot dogs, donuts, and anything else you can imagine. At the end of the […]

Iran: Unedited History

This summer, I was lucky enough to take a trip to Europe with my Baba joon. When we were in Paris, we kept seeing advertisements for the exhibition, IRAN: Unedited History. Curious, we decided to check it out at the Museum of Modern Art. The large gallery of drawings, pictures, film, posters, and artifacts is […]

Celebrate 4th of July with a Japadog

You don’t have to be a baseball enthusiast, culinary critic, or a morbidly obese person to realize that hot-dogs are truly an all-American favourite – especially on the 4th of July. You’d be surprised to know, though, that hot-dogs are by no means a domestic invention, especially not the one I’ll be cooking up today. The […]

MANLY NOSE MONDAY: Founding Fathers edition

It’s Monday, and we’ve got another edition of #ManlyNoseMonday. In honor of 4th of July, here are the founding fathers of the manly nose trend. But first, can you guess which manly man this manly nose belongs to? We’ll reveal it at the end. For now, feast your eyes on Paul Newman’s slightly crooked-on-one-side, strong […]

We Should All Celebrate Pride

There’s been this little thingie happening over the last month: Pride. Once referred to as Gay Pride, chopping off that first word makes it more inclusive, and it’s only right since the parades and festivals have brought together people of every predilection and walk of life for years now, not just gay men. Whatever you […]
