I am Shagufta Pasta, a writer, social planner, and storyteller who calls Vancouver, Toronto and Joburg home. I have been blogging for the past ten years and in 2010, Seriously Planning was born, a blog that discusses my life, stories, faith and cities through written pieces, regular audio stories and a monthly bookclub that brings together interesting people, wonderful books and tea. Currently I live in British Columbia, Canada.

This blog talks about my life, cities (and my adventures in the city) and about the books I’m reading. My reading tastes are broad, but I am most interested in diverse books, books about or featuring Muslim characters, books about cities and nonprofit organizations and good nonfiction and fiction books more generally.
