I like my name.

I went to Sal’s for dinner the other night and saw all these lovely ladies that I haven’t seen in forever. The food was amazing and I’m so grateful for the company.
Lately I’ve been so busy in RA training (which I love and will be posting photos as soon as I find the time) all day every day. We always have so much fun, but there’s so little time to ourselves. I just had an hour break (that I should be using to work on other RA projects, but I’m just so tired) so I’m just enjoying the comfort of my bed before our next meeting. I love seeing everyone from last year, and it makes me sad that a lot of my friends have moved on to bigger things or to different staffs. Either way, I’m feeling kind of homesick for my good friends. And family of course. It’s weird being one of the only people fasting during training, but the lectures and constant activity helps distract me from hunger, which is rarely there anymore. I honestly haven’t had a hard time at all this month Alhumdulillah.
Sal, Kairshma, Zain, Zarmeen, Amena
Me, Saira
Anyway, here’s one of the photos from the iftar dinner. I’ll probably be posting more of these later, too 🙂

I need to start taking videos. My camera is pretty bad with actual photos, and I only manage to get a couple good shots out of a million. The videos come out pretty good, though, for casual use. So I’m thinking I’ll compile a bunch of different videos from my year and by the end it’ll be something great that I can share with everyone.

Anyway, I have a meeting in 10 minutes, so I’ll be updating more later.
