This is my first post on this blog. That's kind of cool, except that Mama beat me to it and already wrote a post first. I'll probably beat Huda though since she can't think of what to write. Unless I write a really long post and by the time I'm done I find out that she has already published something.
I think it's awesome that Ramadan is so close because now we have something to look forward to. All this time we were looking forward to the wedding weekend and now it's over. But we don't have any time to be sad about it because Ramadan is a million times better than weddings.
Okay, here's a joke. It's not really a joke (as Furkan will probably be quick to point out if he ever reads this), but I want to say it anyway. During weddings and Ramadan, our feet hurt. But what's the difference? During a wedding, our feet hurt because we are wearing extremely uncomfortable shoes that leave red marks all over our feet and make us wish we could just sit down. During Ramadan, during tarawih, we stand for a long time and that makes our feet hurt, too. Actually, forget I said that because I can't remember a time in any Tarawih prayer that my feet hurt as much as they did in the wedding. But you get good deeds for praying tarawih and you don't get good deeds for wearing party shoes...unless of course you are making your grandmother happy for wearing the shoes she gave you. That gets good deeds, too. Which leads me to say that making your big sister happy can also get you good deeds.
I think we should all make some Ramadan goals and I can help anyone who needs help with it. For example, one idea I have is for all of us to try to not bother other people when they are trying to go to sleep. But then, I just realized I won't sleep during the night in Ramadan. Or maybe I will if I don't get enough sleep.
Another idea I have is to make videos of cool suhoor meals. A certain girl with a certain apron from Turkey could help make that possible.
Did anyone else realize that Turkey and Tarawih are similarly written? I wrote Tarawih instead of Turkey in the above sentence about Huda.
I think Huda already wrote a post, too, because we chatted with me a little while ago about it. It doesn't matter. I'm pretty sure mine is more interesting than hers.
Let's start a Ramadan countdown. Let's do it like the Care Bear countdown. I love the CareBear countdown except that it starts from 4 and we have to start from 7 or 8.
