DA BEST GUEST BLOG EVAA

Salaaam guys and umm sisters, my name is Waleedudin Younas Abdusami

(Waleed Sami)

And Anisah has been begging me to guest blog so I have relented. She also found me this picture to talk about so I will.

So apparently this is some folk singer at a hippie concert some-where. My music tastes range from Qawwali to Death Metal to underground gangsta rap. I'm try to make a death-qawwali-gangsta rap genre too. I'll tell yall how that works out. Anyways the only folk music I'm into are The Greatful Dead.

Anyways, this picture is pretty boss. The guy is riffin through a chord with a cig in his mouth with the eternal peace sign above him. Quite symbolic of the Caucasian-Oriented peace movement in the 60s. Fun Fact: My uncle had an afro in Pakistan. The newspapers went crazy and printed his picture in the front pages saying he was the first hippie of Lahore. So yes people all over the world have afros.. including my uncle... who is like 56 now.

Word.

Anyways the only thing I find wrong with this picture is this man is smoking a cig. I think thats so low class, I'm personally a pipe enthusiast. So I'm very biased. Yes I do have elitist tendancies.

Anyways, thank you Anisah for letting me blog! This has been a truly amazing experince that I won't do again!

Peace and Love

Salaam

50th POST!
GUEST POSTER! Mariam is here with us today, and she has a couple words she would like to say to the world:
"I cant really think of anything of importance that I want to say to the world but I feel priveleged to be able to have my two cents worth on Anisah's blog... trust when I think of something important to say that I will revisit this page. I only wish I were as creative and witty as Anisah.. too bad, lol"
yayyy!! mariam and i are sitting in the library with three other girls who aren't important enough to mention, and we decided that we needed to make the 50TH POST to make the blog a little exciting!! we're about to go to a shura meeting, which should be funn! tomorrow we're going to do a thing called Project Downtown and make sandwiches and hand them out to the homeless! be like us, or at least smile at the homeless pereson! you will make their lives a little bit brighter :)

ITS OVER.
ohhh happy dayyy! (free concert from hanane and mee 16th floor, hollaa)

Kat Von D.
today in my english class we were discussing religions. we did a fishbowl discussion with two groups: religious and non-religious. hmm...Im the only person in the class that isn't christian! haha it was very weird cause everyone kept saying, 'we all go to church lalala we all read the bible and so lalala' i was like... i go to the mosque hehe... :) it was all very interesting, though. we got to see everyones backgrounds and kind of where everyone is coming from. and im sure everyone was curious about me because im cool... or maybe cause i wear a scarf... nahh, it's probably because im cool.
and just outside of our building there was this guy preaching to the world about the bible and how being gay is wrong and then there were, of course, people who were yelling back and I JUST WISH he would keep his damn thoughts to himself. honesly, who the hell cares what he or she believes? just worry about yourself, and i'll worry about myself. kthanksbye.

EID MUBARAK EVERYONE!
don't you love it when everything goes better than planned? i just got home and i had a really greatt nightttt.
i went to the library to study today (i didnt even start to work) and then we went to a friend's house for the last Iftar of Ramadan! first of all, the food was delicious (go to an arab's house if you haven't already, they'll feed you like no other :) ). secondly, when we were done eating we watched Sky High. which sounds a little dumb but Warren Peace is VERY attractive. so we all kind of stared at the tv and drooled. and then we were like 'roadtrippp' so we went to this place called Moody Point (except its not even really called that) to see this scary abandoned house that is definitely Off Limits and we screamed our lungs offff even though there was nothing. there used to be a prison in the area and a murderer escaped or some scary shit like that though so umm thats a good enough reason i guess! so we went back to our friend's house and chilled in the basement. and because its ginormous, we rode scooters and lifted weights and then had an extreme dance party with strobe lights and all that good stuff. it was fun cause dance parties are only my favorite thing in the entire world!!!
its 3:10am and its the beginning of Eid.
freshh startsss.
IM SO HAPPPYYYYYYYYY :)

i guess he charges my happiness...
"He is the energizer bunny to your heart." Nicely put, Anfal.
I'm kinda sad now that it's done
You think my time is for free
In all the ways you say to me,
Sweet versions of let's wait and see
We all share the pain of our histories
But the ache goes away if you could see
This night under stars, well, I call it peace

If you say, I'll never need more than this

The trees grow so thick
You can barely see through
But the forest bestows the simplest of truths
You think you'll be happy if granted one more wish
But the truth is you'll never need more,
You'll never need more
You'll never need more than this

I have such great friends, alhumdullilah. i'm so happy i've gotten to meet so many amazing people throughout my life. I always talk about my hometown to my college friends, so much that they probably know each of my friends just by hearing my stories about them. Aileen and I were talking the other day and we were just remembering summer and thinking about how much our group of friends hung out and how lucky we are to have such close friends. She mentioned that she doesn't know any other group that hung out every day and we're both just really thankful that we have one another! It's so true that you can get through anything with a close friend. Anytime I had to go through something tough, my friends were always there for me. Sometimes you don't know how much you've impacted someone else's life. You may have thought you were just good company, but for someone else you may have been their lifesaver.

Here are two nice things that were said to me in the past week by good friends:

"When i moved here, I thought you were the most magical thing I had ever seen. I just sat back and watched." (Nadiah)

"You're so utterly intelligent and you so very maturely carry yourself everywhere you go. Honestly, you'll go sooooooo far in life inshallah. You have something that some people spend forever trying to embrace." (Sarah)

i'll never need more than this :)


i get lost everywhere i go. including the library! i love the library. i took this picture of our endless bookshelves.

remember back in the day when i blogged about locking my keys in the car??
i did it again at the laudromat over the weekend. and i got locked out of my dorm twice in one week!! i have the worst memory in the world, but i dont even think that's what it was about! i dont know, im not that irresponsible! but i cant blame anyone but myself... i guesss.
anyway ben was telling me that hes going to forget all of us when he's 80 because altheimers runs in his family! i told him i would forget everyone by the time im 20 so he wouldnt feel so bad.
thats DEFINITELY not true though. i could never.
anyway, today i walked around campus and saw guys playing the bongos and a fencing club meeting. they were fencing! in the middle of a little park! it was cool. then i saw a pretty building and thought, 'ohh i wish i had my camera'. i want to take lots of pics and post them. but right now i have to study.
my dorm is too cold for meee! but at least it's cute, so i forgive it for being so cold.
story time by mohammad:
"and my cultural foundation teacher is insane. like literally she randomly starts laughing really loud, it's hilarious. she thought it was funny that the room was long so she started laughing REALLY LOUD then 15 minutes later she explained why she was laughing haha u would love her though"

he's right, i would love her. should i include something more in this blog? i feel that Calvin is just what this post needs.

If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn't. And contrary-wise; what it is it wouldn't be, and what it wouldn't be, it would. You see?
