Have you ever heard of Ramadan? It’s a month long fast that Muslims partake in every year.It usually happens around August. I don’t know exactly when it happens, all I know is that it usually happens when we start school. Muslims don’t eat or drink anything when the sun is up. I have a roommate named Hafiz, who is Muslim, and every year I have to watch Hafiz suffer through it. He wakes up before the sun rises and eats. He watches us eat and even goes with us to eat sometimes but he never eats. When it happened this past year, Eman, who is another roommate of mine, and I said that we’d do that for lent. To see how much pain he goes through every year. We call it Lentadan and today was my first day. It fucking sucked and I kept forgetting I was supposed to be fasting and accidentally ate a twizzler and a couple of saltine crackers. Here is to hoping tomorrow goes better.
