I am like so totally excited. Cuz like um my birthday is coming up. Yay. Actually I am not. Well I kinda am. I dunno why. I like my birthday. Its a day dedicated to me. I love Me. Ok now I just sound like C.A. Anyway. Birthdays aren't really a big deal in my family. My dad doesn't really celebrate birthdays. However, we do (sometimes) go out to eat as a family on our birthdays. But thats it. No gifts or nothing. A few years ago we tried to celebrate Father's Day and my dad freaked out. We kinda just did it to be funny since we know he doesn't celebrate that either. My dad thinks that Father's Day (and Mother's Day) should be every day. And hes right. Sigh.
I'm pretty sure celebrating birthdays is a touchy topic in Islam, as well. Thats where my dad gets it from. Anyway. There are different beliefs that scholars (of Islam) have on celebrating birthdays. Some say its alright to celebrate your birthday if you are thanking God and showing gratitude for being blessed with one more year of life. Others say its not right to celebrate and be happy about losing one year of your life.
Anyhoo, I am quite sad about losing a year of my life. A year that I wasted and could have spend much more productively, sigh! However, I am also excited to be one year older just because that means I'm closer and closer to getting married!!!!!!!!!!! Just kidding..kinda. I dunno. Lately the days have been going by SO FAST. I can't believe its October already. Sigh. But thats a good thing for me. Cuz next thing you know I'll be done with college. And perhaps far away at another college. Or not. Or maybe I'll just be a fail and do nothing with my life. I think the latter will happen. Sigh. Please pray that it doesn't. Anyways, I have to go stalk celebrities on Twitter. Ok bye.
Yours for the Sake of Peace and Sisterhood,
