…at its finest ๐Ÿ™‚

helping Caitlin fix her hijab on Twin Day during training ๐Ÿ™‚
I love anyone who just wants to steal my scarves and wear them for the day ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s always so much fun!
[it was triplet day for us]
I love being an RA! So many amazing people with open minds, creativity, excitement and eagerness to learn.
At the block party during the first week of school the DJ played The Wobble just for the RAs ๐Ÿ™‚


I had a dream last night, wherein I traveled to Spain.

“Dreams are the touchstones of our character.” Henry David Thoreau
I was born to travel.
Who’ll come with me?

Right now,

more than anything, I just want to be 25.
as weird as this sounds, and I’ll probably regret saying it in 5 years, this is the age I’ve wanted to be for a while now. I just want to have everything figured out. And I know that probably will never happen, but it’d be a couple steps closer, right?

I had the most delicious pomegranate raspberry green tea tonight at a holy books discussion (which also doubled as a tea party). It was lovely.

I miss my summers.

home is wherever I’m with you

people, let me tell you ’bout my besttt frienddd

I’m not quiet sure why, but this is the funniest pose to me. I always want to do it.
like a G.
pink eyeshadow
purple liner
We don’t really look alike in these pictures, but I swear we could pass as twins most days.

Lately I’ve had absolutely NO time to do anything but attend classes and organization meetings, and be an RA. I love keeping busy, but I also love breathing ๐Ÿ™‚ haha
I’ve kind of missed out on everyone’s recent posts, but I hope to catch up with you all soon! It’s my junior year and I’ve finally started my upper-level Social Work courses. Hearing about poverty and disadvantaged peoples in class just makes me so anxious to get out of school and into the field. I already have 10 million research papers and projects to do, as well as lots of reading. It’s all very interesting, but can someone point me in the direction of time? Because I could definitely use some more of it.


seriously, random.

fancy staff dinner ๐Ÿ™‚
Waffle House- the last suhoor; nomnom
some of the guys at suhoor
Saira and I pretending to be candid at Eid dinner.
There are a million other pics from this night, but I had to put this one up
because Saira is my big date and I’m her little olive.
my train ride home; my first train ride ever. I really liked it ๐Ÿ™‚
a station along the way
one of the smaller stations we passed. the train goes through such small towns, it seems dangerous.
i felt like we were passing through peoples’ front yards
checkered station tiles
random tunnel I love and had to photograph
and the stairwell leading to… well, I wasn’t about to find out.
