RAMADAN AND READING

Ramadan destroyes my good routines. Today I woke up 09.15 AM, but somehow fell asleep again and woke up 12.30 PM. I don`t like waking up that late at all. Let`s just say thank God it`s summer and vacation. We have some of the longest fasts in the world, as we break our fast about 22.40 now. Since there`s not that much space between Iftari (when we break our fast) and Sehri (“pre-dawn meal, the meal we have before we start our next fast) I don`t sleep between these two meals, but stay up instead. I eat Sehri early and go to bed between 1.30 and 3 AM. Also, maybe it`s just me, but even though I fast for about 20 hours, I don`t feel that hungry when I break my fast. Some people think that`s insane, but I prefer to think I`m just not the kind of person to starve (at least not yet). 😉

Apart from fasting and sleeping I`ve been reading a book about Norwegian-Pakistanis, and yesterday I started a book about anorexia. The writer is a quite well-known journalist and social activist here in Norway. She had anorexia for several years, and she shares her story. I`ve just started it, so I can`t say that much about it, apart from that it`s an impressive book written by a strong person.

A graduated Anne is blogging right now. Can you believe it? I can`t wrap my head around it. I know I graduated this Monday, but it`s still weird. Anyways. More about my graduation in another post!

Yesterday was a very great day. In the evening I went to Østmarka School to spend some time with lovely people. Going to the summer shutdown is always better, as the tenth graders graduate and it`s way more “personal” then. As it`s three years ago since my graduation, it was JK`s turn to say goodbye to his students. I loved his “speech” and I loved what the students had to say about the teachers. I hadn`t laughed as much as I did yesterday for quite a while – it was that hilarious. Thanks to all the people I met that made my day this good and thanks for all the nice comments. It`s nice to know people appreciate what I write and my voice.

This vacation started off very great and I`m excited to know what else it holds for me. Even though I can`t believe it`s summer already.
