It is Eid today, and this marks the end of Ramadan and start of a new month in the Islamic calender. I am ready to eat loads of food and have a relaxing weekend. I am visiting Poland next week, so that shall be exciting.

A few days ago, the international student ambassador team had a farewell get together. I finally got to meet some other ambassadors who blog just like me. I was also working for alumni networking at the master student graduation farewell this week. In a few days, I will go back to Canada to spend my summer holidays there.

Hello everyone! Here is another blog that I want to publish today. This summer has been amazing so far in Sweden. The weather has been sunny throughout May and June. This definitely made up for the long and dark winter. Here are some pictures that I took over the course of last month or so.

Ramadan in Sweden

Hello everyone! It has been a while since I have blogged. My new job and the last course of the semester kept me busy. The last course was on research methods. It was probably the most demanding course so far of my master program. My thesis proposal was due last week. There was a take-home exam, an empirical exercise, and many small assignments and seminars that needed to be handed in within a month. This was more challenging because I was also fasting since Ramadan lasted from mid-May until mid-June.

Ramadan is a holy month for Muslims where we fast from dawn until sunset. We can not drink or eat anything for 29 or 30 days, depending on the lunar cycle. In Sweden, Ramadan can be very tough during this time of the year since days are around 20 hours in length where I live. Nights are short and not even completely dark. Here are some pictures of my iftaar (breaking the fast) meals from different days.

Labour Day weekend and new plants

Hello friends! This Tuesday it was labour day holiday in Europe, unlike Canada where it is in September. I worked on my final assignment for my course, and now it is finished. Next week I will begin my fourth and last course of this semester.

Since spring has started, I got some plants for my room. They are very refreshing to look at. Hopefully it gets sunny, because they desperately need some sun.
