Kul 3’m wa antum be5eer!!

Today is Eid al-Adha, although it doesn’t really feel like it. I woke up early this morning and went to prayer at the Islamic Centre (run by the Egyptian Embassy). I only stayed for the prayer and the sermon. I had to get back to work. I didn’t really want to take the day off since I am taking a few days off next week. Some people stuck around for lunch afterwards.

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday. For those who have to work as well, enjoy your days off next week; and those who made it to Hajj this year, I hope you had a wonderful experience.

I fasted yesterday (for Arafa) and it was harder than I expected. I had such an odd headache all day. Sunsets around 8pm didn’t really help either. I’m glad I made it through the day. Although at times I didn’t really want to talk to anyone at work.
