Kindred Spirits

Welcome to Dum Vivimus, Vivamus!

It means "While we live, let us live…"

WHO WE ARE: Isra and Hamna: Canadian expats, sisters with different last names that are fully related by blood, and kindred spirits that go to high school in the armpit of America.

WHERE WE COME FROM: Born in Pakistan. Home is a little island cradled by the waves on the east coast of Canada. Now we live in a small town in New Jersey, of all places.

OCCUPATION: Almost college student and whiny high school freshman. Daughters and sisters. Canadians. Full-time hockey fans with a soft spot for goalies. Professional "I-will-do-it-laterers". Coldplay listeners. Emotional criers. Hipsters and Prepsters. Honorary Scandinavians (in our hearts).

WHAT WE DREAM ABOUT: Success. Happiness. Peace. Compassion. Fulfillment. Knowledge. Prestige. Magic. Miracles. Imperfect Perfection. And dreams, of course.

WHY WE STARTED THIS BLOG: One night, at one o'clock at night, we were just like, "Hey, let's start a blog".  We wanted to write about the most random things that make our lives what they are. And so we did.
