Lol, do you see what I did, there? :D
I was supposed to take Gina-Bean's shift tonight, 'cause her car isn't fixed/registered yet. She texted me earlier to confirm, I said yeah, and then I go a text just now saying she was working anyway. Turns out her phone's not taking texts right now ... But I'm taking her shift tomorrow, and, God willing, she'll have her new car soon.
In other news, our convert support group's meeting next Sunday! Yay! I'm also hosting a ladies' tea party next Sunday, so it'll be after the meeting. Gotta e-mail the two brothers I met and say, "Yo, my brothas, come kick it!" :P
Also, my Easter hijab:
I got the idea from this hijab tutorial
on YouTube, by HijabTrendz. Should have used the yellow scarf as the
underscarf, rather than my not-quite-matching bandana, lo.. ^_^ Then I
just experimented. It got a little uncomfortable around the neck, but
eh, it was liveable. If you want to do what I did, layering two of
them, then you need to wrap both scarves simultaneously. Layer one on
top of the other and adjust how much of the lower one you want showing,
then wrap the bottom, then the top, adjust, and repeat. ^_^ You can
fiddle with the gathers around the neck, and which parts are over your
shoulders, which is nice.
Anyway, your Hijabi Waitress is enjoying her night off and right now, wishes she had a husband to rub her feet for her.
Welcome to my blog!
This blog is an honest look at what life is like for this particular American convert to Islam. We're taught in Islam to cover our sins, to not air them, for fear of lessening the severity of sinning. In this blog, I may relate past indiscretions from time to time. This isn't to make light of them, but in the interest of educating Muslims and non-Muslims alike as to the realities of life as an American convert, I present my mistakes honestly. I make no excuses for them, nor do I claim that they were okay to make. I am not perfect, and I make no pretenses as to that. If others can learn from my past, know that Islam, and religion in general, is open for people no matter what mistakes they've made, then I will gladly air my sins when needed.
