Erin and I at the front desk at the library asking a man for help with our human spirituality project:

"Hi, where can we find the Torah, Bible and Quran?"
"In the BS section."

Yes, that actually happened.

"You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She’s not perfect - you aren’t either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break; her heart. So don’t hurt her, don’t change her, don’t analyze and don’t expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she’s not there."
Bob Marley was a smart man.

Leonid Meteor Shower!
I went to see my first meteor shower this morning from 2am til 4am and it was so incredible! We didn't see too much because it was a bit cloudy and there was still a lot of light pollution even when we left the city. but what we did see was beautiful :)
but before we actually went to view them, two friends and i got lost for 40 minutes on some highway... haha surprise, surprise...
when we finally got there, we put the blanket out and laid down to watch the magic.
i kept giggling because it was so early and i havent gotten any sleep! and that's what happens to me when i'm that tired. i just finished writing my sociology paper and now i have to read for one of my classes. so i just pulled an all-nighter...hooray.

wishes, wishes, wishes :)

last night was so much fun :) zaneera picked me up at 11 last night to go to the park with friends... the park closed at sunset. so we went and met up with 6 other girls to have a BONFIRE!! it was so scarryyy and so much fun! just a bunch of girls on a cold night crowded around a warm fire. starting a fire when the ground's wet is soo hard. it took us forever and it ended up being a baby fire. and when the fire finally started to crackle and strengthen, kairshma yells at us all to be quiet and then she was like, 'oh shit, everyone shutup! come on lets go, COME ON we have to leave!!!' she stomped the fire out quickly and we all grabbed our stuff and started running. it was pitch dark and we couldn't see where we were going!! we couldnt turn on the flashlights because we all thought a cop or someone would see us and we would get into trouble for trespassing.
so we finally got back to the car, and headed towards kairshma's house! her, urooj and i stayed up to watch The Ugly Truth (which we all learned from LOL) and ended up going to sleep around 5:30am.
this morning at like 11am, kairshma calls us for breakfast. we ate delicious eggs and waffles and i walked back to my dorm to get ready for a day out at a historical manor near campus. today was the most beautiful day we've had in a while. the weather has been super bipolar and i wouldn't be surprised if there was a random blizzard next weekend. at the manor we toured the mansion and got to ride the horse-drawn carriages around the park. it was so relaxing and the house was amazing. the furniture was all victorian and basically, that's how i want my house to look like when i'm older.
and now im tired. greattt weeekend. goodnight. xxx.

just bought some puma's!!! finally some comfortable shoes.
not that my cowboy boots aren't comfortable :)... but yeah. i needed some real shoes. chucks are so uncomfortable! i didnt think so before but after living in the city where all i do is walk all day, i found that they are the most uncomfortable pair of 'tennis shoes' i've ever tried on!
yesterday was so much fun. MY FIRST COLLEGE BASKETBALL GAME. i love bringing out the war paint! and apparently i was on TV with my group of friends! hollywood, here i come. and we left early cause we were so hungry...right after we left, one of the players won free pizza for everyone in our section of the stadium... a large box of pizza for each of us... that definitely beats the qdoba we paid for.
hmm, what else? i would tell you what i did later last night but i'm trying to surprise everyone when i get home. so, uhh for now, that's a secret!
my dad and brothers came today! it was so much funn, i love showing people 'my' city when they visit me. it's weird, but it's cool.
anyway, going out aimlessly tonight.
laterrr, skaterrrs.

blogggg. yesterday was so much fun. i spent the day pretty chillin... i probably should've done work but i guess that's what today will be for. yesterday kawthar, fadi and i were in the library "studying" and just hanging out cause the weather is bipolar. and ALL we did the whole time was listen to fadi read YO MAMA jokes off some joke website hahaha it was HILARIOUS. it was really silly, but it was a rainy dayy and we're silly people haha. there was one joke that made our whole section of the library laugh.

and then later at 9pm we went to the gym and played basketball. MY GOODNESS! such a great workout. but i was really hungry afterwards. actually, i was pretty hungry ALL day yesterday... it was weird. anyway, basketball was a lot of fun, and i got to do pull-ups on the bar! which i havent done since the summer. after hanging out with ben so much, by the end of the summer i could do 3 pull-ups! (this is a big deal because at the beginning i could only do one!) and yesterday at the gym i could barely do one!! it was so sad. all that hard work fo nothin'. i guess that means im gonna have to keep making these late night gym trips! it was so much fun playing basketball, though. i LOVED it. almost as much as i love soccer.
weather update: umm i almost got blown away (not exaggerating!), 10 of my friends complained about their broken umbrellas, and its freezing! alan, hanane, erin, and i were running backwards to qdoba wednesday night (at 2am lol) because it was so cold. AND qdoba was closed because it's veterans day! so we had to drive to macdonald's (bleh!) and burger king (mehh). ANYWAYS back to the weather (PS i think i have ADD... its annoying). I CAN JUMP IN THE PUDDLES BECAUSE I HAVE RAIN BOOTS :) !!! it is so much fun, everyone in the world should have rainboots (unless you live in the desert or something). the bottom of your jeans will never get wet again! it's a wonderful thing.

So what, so I've got a smile on me
but it's hiding the quiet superstitions in my head
Don't believe me
When I say I've got it down

Time together is just never quite enough
When we're apart whatever are you thinking of?
What will it take to make or break this hint of love?
So tell me darling do you wish we'd fall in love
All the time

if you're ever wondering what kind of flowers to get me, sunflowers are my favorite :)

how about some color?

Yesterday after Friday Prayers, the MSA made sandwiches, chips and tea for the homeless. Then, we went to the park in the middle of campus and distributed them to all of the people there. A big part of the charity we do is not only giving food, but also talking to the homeless and making them feel like they are really a part of our community. We've made friends with many of them and they always thank us for coming out every friday. One man who we see a lot always tells us to smile. He thanks us for the food and then he just talks about how important smiling is and asks us to smile for him.
Next time you see a homeless person, SMILE at him :)

then last night we went to a candle light vigil for Breast Cancer Awareness. it was really nice and some of us got to speak about our experiences with breast cancer (family members who have it) and how it has affected us. Breast Cancer Awareness month is over and this month is Lung Cancer Awareness month. Keep that in mind.

what a rewarding day.

if you finds a cure for cold hands i will love you forever.

1am nature hikes by the river are good for the mind :)
last night we went hiking on one of the nature paths by the river and it was incredible! some of the most beautiful things can only be noticed at night. i suggest everyone take a late night hiking trip to straighten your thoughts or just clear your head. turn your phone off and look around.
