How It Feels To Fast During Ramadan
Let the hunger games begin. A list as long as your fast.
At first you think it will be easy.
You've even created a list of goals this year.
You've even decided to cut back on social media and internet use because this happens...
You change your relationship status.
But you don't care cause you'll still have a date every night.
You try to be nice to everyone.
When you step into the kitchen, you step right out.
Food what? What is that even?
Ignore the caffeine headaches.
While there, don't think about the pain.
You even decide to make Suhoor for the first day which means: grocery shopping!
Once your masterpiece is complete you go to wake up your family members.
Angry feelings start to creep in...
But you shrug it off because it only means more Suhoor food for you!
Fast kid, fast! The sun is rising!
And when you walk into class the next morning your first words are:
And that kid who decided to have coffee for Suhoor is like...
Then your gym teacher makes you run the mile despite knowledge of your fasting.
Then anger builds and words start to slip out.
You find your sister in a closet with food.
You realize that somehow you're actually gaining weight.
The days start to feel like they're getting longer.
When someone asks you how much time is left
Before you know it you're this person.
When you tell your non-Muslim friends you can't engage in food, gossip, parties or obscenity and have no energy to do any physical activity, they're like...
So you convince them to fast a day with you and by 3pm they're like...
And when you tell them water is not allowed either:
But let's get back to you. You may slip.
Watch some Game of Thrones.
But when the hour mark hits you know you got this.
You imagine your feasts to go like this:
And then before you know it, IT'S TIME!
But after your first bite...
And you end the day the way you started.
Here is where I was going to write the real meaning of Ramadan isn't about food in GIFs, but this has gotten way too long. Stop reading and go pray or sleep, your choice.
