Today is the first day of Ramadan. For y'all that don't know imma give yall the break down. So, Ramadan is a muslim holiday that celebrates the 30 days in which Allah (God) revealed to the Prophet Muhammad the Quran (Muslim religious text). Now starting today all muslims all over the world are going to be fasting from sun up to sun down. They can't eat or drink while the sun is up, not even water. So, basically for me, who lives on the east coast of the U.S. i have to fast from approx. 5:30am to approx. 8:30 pm everyday until August 8th. The sun rises and sets at different times each day it usual changes by a minute or 2 each time making it slightly easier everyday. Also, Ramadan changes dates every year. A long time ago it was in December when the day were short and ti slowly moves up the calendar. It was in september for most of my childhood when I didn't fast. But now it's been slowly creeping into the summer months and the days get hotter and longer :/ This will be my 3rd or 4th year fasting I don't remember. I didn't finish last ear because I get sick real easy and the fasting wasn't helping so I had to quit. So now having that said, I woke up at 4:45 this mornin threw on some pants and a jacket because it was prayer time. So we (me, my mum n sisters) got on the rug and did salaat. Soon as we finished we went upstairs to start preparing breakfast. Today sunrise was 5:35am exactly. So I hurried and ate an apple, some milk tea, and a croussaint. I normally would've stuffed myself to prepare, but I wasn't all that hungry, which was extremely inconvenient, but I'll survive. So after that I tried to go back to sleep but I ended up just layin there for half an hour before my allergies started actin up. But of course I can't take my allergy medicine, so I just got my usual cool cloth and put it on my eyes, laying on my bed sideways listening to "My Prince" on loop. I eventually got tired and just crawled under my covers with my jeans still on, ipod playing. I woke up at like 9:30 and here I am. My ipod is totally frozen, It plays music but I have to push play and pause with my headphones, I was luckily listening to a playlist when it froze. But the home button and lock button don't work, it wont turn off. I'm spazzing out and I don't even want to think about having to fast without music 0.0. Help!!
