ugggh its been a few days, a few crazy days but none the less...Wow the world is a microscopic place where we are all just within degrees from each other or intertwined in so many various ways. I have no idea how to dwell on that any more its just whats flowing through my mind right now. Anyways I'm full speed ahead with my college dorm room preparations. Still confused about what I have left to buy however my lovable Sony Vaio will be here soon( Mac book who?) and I'll be able to blog more often and fill you in on my progress. Speaking of Mac books I'm so glad I'm such an individual. I mean this whole time I've been thinking and stressing about what laptop to buy everyone has been saying "oh get a Mac book,GET A MAC BOOK" and even though it looks very shiny and awesome like the new toys I would open every Eid all Mac books....LOOK THE SAME.They are all uniformly cut,uniformly functioning,and symmetrical.I mean if someone stole your Mac book in college how could you really tell which one is yours?And God knows I was not born to be a follower. For instance today I went shopping and I stopped at Aeropostale because I'm on a whole brand new me, shopping for new wardrobe thing so I said OK I'll go in try on some shirts and they had the Aero graphic tee's 2 for 15.And I'm standing in the dressing room wearing this tee and thinking what the hell??This isn't individualism!This is me falling for a fashion craze and being like everyone else.I AM NOT LIKE EVERYONE ELSE!I'm a hijabinista and I'm different and not only have I accepted it.I've empowered it. So I walked straight out that store and bought my self an awesome graphic tee( even though the parents will be killing me after they see the AMEX bill) but hey this is to INDIVIDUALISM!!!until next time...:)

Hello All,I have arrived..

So today at exactly 10:42 am I had an awakening.The most beautiful and exhilarating awakening.I finally realized what I'm going to do with my life and how I'm going to get there!Isn't it awesome to have a path with a goal at the end and voila! all you have to do is follow it.You are probably reading this like great here is another blogger junkie who is just purging random thoughts of her young mind into the world wide web.But this awakening is so much more than that.I've finally realized the individual I want to be in this world and do you not know how awesome that feels?Yes you who is frowning right now giving me the whatever eye roll.You're in search of your path as well.I should probably reveal who I am and the ultimate purpose of this blog.Well it is essentially the "Confessions of a Hijabinista"(I love Sophia Kinsella as you can tell) and its my life as I dictate. I'm a high school grad off for my fist year of college and dealing with being a now young woman navigating the world of temptation and trying to be an ideal muslimah!I'm Muslim and I love every minute of it but I'm also human as you will soon find out.I'm from A Town,USA and I'm off to "my parents are giving me hell because it costs so much but I luv it" University in about a month or so. Oh so before I forget here is my "20things list" The 20 things list is all the things that need and I mean a complete MUST be done before my twentieth birthday.They also pertain to the whole "path" in my life right now. So without further delay....

3.Update the wardrobe
4.Forget the last 2 years of my life
5.Learn Surah Yasin(yes I want to learn the surh about death.How happy)

8.Maintain at least 3.5 GPA.(Totally obtainable)
9. Study and ignore text messages or facebook alerts that are truly unimportant
11.Shopping Spree in NYC
12. Internship in India
13.Prepare speech for November gala and don't sweat out my dress before speech is given

15.Balance my checkbook
16.Give proper Zakat every month
17.Join campus newspaper
18.Get into Ivy League college I want and not the one near home where my parents are pressuring me because frankly...I can't go back there.
19.Keep my hijabs organized hahahah!

20. Find myself this freshman year and through all the craziness and my new found independence and always keep my morals and values close inshallah.(even though I might end up shisha-ing by December.stress reliever)
