For the past recent couple of months, I’ve been extremely absent-minded. I forget things I thought about like half a minute ago (I’m not exaggerating). The moment I divert my thoughts or attention from one point to another, I forget about the previous point. I’m starting to think of this as a symptom, that’s how far it’s gone. And I’m constantly scared that because of this, I’m going to make mistakes at work. I’ve come up with a solution though, which basically is writing stuff down or doing it the minute I think about it.
Anyway so the reason I didn’t remember Rayan’s first Eid (see previous post) was because I wasn’t here last Eid-ul-Adha. I was in Luleå, celebrating it with O and her family. See I knew that I couldn’t forget something like that! I didn’t forget, there was nothing to forget in the first place!
Anyway… Eid-ul-Fitr 2012 was pleasant. My cousins came over last night and one of them stayed, and today we went to another cousin’s place and then to a neighbor’s place. I know that I said I wanted to spend this Ramadan in Bangladesh, but due to unpredictable circumstances that plan was cancelled. So next year if God wills, I will be able to experience a joyful Eid. Not that people weren’t happy here… it’s just, well Eid in Sweden is boring.
I tried putting on henna [seriously] for the first time last night. It went… better than expected. That still doesn’t mean good though . I tried again today, and have realized that it’s something you have to practice a lot. The henna my cousin brought is all watery and dries the skin out, and the color is kinda ashen. I’m gonna try to find some good quality henna and practice on myself.
And yeah that was my Eid basically. Eid Mubarak to all of my Muslim readers by the way! How was your Eid?
