Pourquoi? Well, ahem, I have an incredibly high metabolism which means I can eat mounds of chocolate cake and still not feel full *smug smile* No, actually.
I'm hungry because I'm not eating. This is because the nineteen days (March 2-20) is the Bahá'í month of ‘Alá’, or loftiness, and it is spent fasting! You only eat before sunrise and after sunset (unless you're sick, pregnant, traveling--like I was--etc.). Because I turned fifteen in January and am thus officially "of age" in the Bahá'í faith, it's my first year of fasting. I'm not an official Bahá'í, but I could become one--and my mom is.
Thus, the diaries of a hungry girl. I spent the past few days out of town, meaning I was eating, which is making this morning even harder! I got up at around 6 AM (on a Saturday), made some nutella and banana crepes, and got to work on some French homework. Good times.
More on the religious front--oh! And the schooling front! Man, am I good--I'm seriously thinking about spending my grade eleven (or, in Europe, year II) year at the Bahá'í International Youth School in the Czech Republic, Townshend. I would be nervous; a whole year away from home, and I'd have to take Phys. Ed which I just finished! Ugh.
Exciting prospects, though. Happy Saturday, everyone. Go do something memorable.
PS: Aaaaaand a picture.
