Reflections During Ramadhan: Part 1

So half of Ramadhan is gone and we are entering the second half, I want to share a couple reflections/thoughts/ from Ramadhan thus far.
 Man do these Africans feed me like I'm the skinny child they wish they never had... SHEEESH !!! (LOL). You should see the amounts of food they give me, It's crazy. then they "try" to make me eat some "white, creamy, lumpy, porridge like substance (pause) to break my fast, but that's a NO go ! the other day they gave me FIVE pieces of chicken, along with chicken and lamb 0_o !!! But do I waste anything ??? Nope, it's Ramadhan and I refuse to waste food when there are less fortunate people out there.


One thing I love about Africans is their good hearts... it's a beautiful thing.


O yea, why do Jay-z and Kanye keep emailing me ??? I coulda swore I told them I wasn't listening to any music during Ramadhan, haha. yes I got my copy(s) of "Watch The Throne" and NO I haven't heard it yet (Even though I've been tempted).


So far this has been an excellent Ramadhan for me, learning new things about myself, strengthening my Quran (this is the BEST time for a Hafidh), and just clearing my mind/thoughts/head of all the smog that the past year has accumulated.


You should see my beard, Freeway, Stalley and Rick Ross would be proud, ha ! (you would think I was a miniature version).


I have been gettin NO sleep ! *Rubs eyes*

I HATE being touched... everyone wants to hug and grab me, especially after I lead Taraweeh (Night Prayer), I guess as a means of saying "good job". It just annoys the **** out of me ! Shaking my hand is cool... Cuz I sorta have to. Ha !


One thing that has been happening to me since the day before Ramadhan began is...EPIC Dreams !!! My dreams have been cinematic, descriptive, book/movie worthy... and to top it all off, I remember Everything. Look for some "writings" to come out of it.


There's more (I'll add to and share as I remember)...


All in all I'm truly thankful for this Ramadhan, one of my best. Have been able to spend much more time with my Qur'an (which is always a plus, I've finished my personal Khatam 3times, not including Taraweeh). This is a time when I try my best to better myself in every way possible and I feel I'm on the right path (Inshallah). 


Not to mention so many job opportunities have come my way in these short 2weeks.


Looking forward to the second half !
