I have done a couple of optional fasts, on the 13,14, 15 or rejab and shaban. I think it helped me after making some mistakes in my life. I am looking forward to this year's ramadan. I wish I could read Arabic well enough to be able to read the Quran but inshallah that will happen in the future.

I have neglected this blog though I have thought of posting again many times. It's been almost a year since the end of ramadan last year since I have posted. So, since last year, I have started learning to read Arabic. I can now recognize characters by themselves but still struggle to recognize them in words. I finally told my dad that I'm muslim. It wasnt that big a deal actually. My dad is non-religious for the most part. He believes in God but I can't remember the last time he went to church. He has been attending Torah study classes for awhile as well.
