     “In Michigan, I was surrounded by people who were familiar with Pakistani culture and understood Islam, so I didn’t feel challenged as a Muslim there. Here at my school, I’m one of only a few practicing Muslims, so I had to figure out how to do many things on my own on top of my other responsibilities as a student. It’s been a slow and rough transition. In the beginning, I got a lot of advice from my father, but he passed away in my sophomore year. I realized then that I have to think for myself and hold myself accountable as a Muslim. I’m trying my best to be a normal American high-school teenager while still holding on to my beliefs.”     “Do you think being challenged in this way as a Muslim has been positive in any way?”     “I think so. Before I got here, the best reason I could find to say why I was Muslim was that my family was Muslim. Here, I thought more about why I was Muslim, and I realized that I agree with the philosophy of Islam. Without having Islam in my life, it’s very difficult to ascribe a purpose to anything.”

Big cats are so beautiful. It makes me terrified to think they could be gone needlessly one day.

The trinities reactions every time Mamrie makes a joke that they didnt think of that was too good for words.
