June Things 

Hello July, and goodbye, June! Yes, it is that time. Another month gone, and less of 2017 to live. I feel like I say this every month, but wow 2017 is almost over.

June has been incredibly busy.

I started the month with heading to college orientation, which was kind of intimidating. I signed up for classes, walked (a lot) through the UT campus, and learned a lot about university life. I feel like I’m not prepared at all, which, I guess, is normal. But, wow. I’m just not ready– and that’s coming from the girl who has wanted to go to college since kindergarten. I know it’s the nerves, but as a type A, intense, anxious person, I’m not the most excited. I’ll let you guys know how it goes once I begin!

I also completed the month of Ramadan and celebrated Eid! Here are some pictures:

I also got my wisdom teeth out yesterday, which was terrifying for me. The overall procedure was pretty painless, but the recovery is killing me. I love eating bread, and I can’t. I know, first world problems– I am just thankful I could afford the procedure. 🙂

I hope your June was incredible! I will be posting more soon, I promise.

March Things

Can you believe March is over? It is officially April, and I am in total shock.

This year just keeps moving, but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate small moments in my life, right? This is what happened in March!

I finally got a new camera! I have been using my iPhone since the beginning of this blog (that was in 2014), but this spring break I finally invested in a real camera. I’m still getting the hang of all the accessories and features, but overtime I’m sure my pictures will get better. 🙂 For now you can view my developing photography page.

I also finally announced my College Decision (!!!), which is so exciting. It shows that I’m one step closer to college. Ahh, how? All I keep thinking is how much I’m going to miss my parents!

I also got my senior pictures taken! You can view a couple of them here (aren’t they so good)! 🙂

This month I finished reading The Help, which is officially on my favorite-books-of-all-time list! I couldn’t put the book down. I love books that make me think and reflect on my life– this one definitely did that.

As April begins, so does AP season– ugh. It’s ok, though. This is the last AP season I will ever experience, so I will make it count. 😉

December Things 

Ahh, it’s been so long since I did a “things” post. Hi, guys! How’ve ya been? 🙂

December was a very busy month for me. As you can see by the dearth of posts; I’ve been very busy. School, extracurricular activities, other classes, have been taking up a big part of my time. Anyway, enough with the excuses, let’s get into the month of December! How is it already time for a new year, like, come on I’m not ready for 2016.

So I turned 16… crazy, right?

This was the cake I cut with just my family. It was an ice cream cake!

This cake was cut to celebrate with close friends and my family! ❤ (Thanks for the cake, Mom! I really do appreciate it. 😀 )

I’m finally old enough to drive, which I don’t plan on learning anytime soon. Seriously, I’m terrified of driving, like, how can I learn how to drive?

I also finished another book: Columbine by Dave Cullen. This book is about the horrific Columbine shooting that took place on April, 20, 1999. It was very interesting, I couldn’t keep the book down. If you like dark novels this is definitely for you. But I warn you, you might cry (I did).

If you didn’t hear December was an especially wet month for us Texans. The power went out at my house, which caused our router to break, which means we had NO wifi. And everything I do requires wifi. I couldn’t blog, use the computer, watch TV, do online assignments, it was a mess. But, it’s okay now 😀 .

Anyway, cheers to the New Year! Can’t wait to see what 2016 will bring (and let’s hope lots of desserts)
