    Oh wow! Is it just you or your whole family? That was well said aha! No I dont have a religion. It's interesting to to hear about the things people sometimes do differently like weddings and celebrations etc. There are so many cultures out there. The fair was at the university of bham, there were so many people there! Im the same, questioning whether I will get the grades to get onto courses. No clue what to put on my personal statement as well :/ x

    I know! some people have problems with mixing with people different to them & i just think why haha. I've never been to a Pakistani wedding before, tbh i dont actually think i know anyone from that culture. Are they vibrant and carnivally or quite serious? So does that mean your fasting? Is it hard? Id be starving aha! You'd have to get used to the accents :P i babble quite a lot as well so its gonna be hard for me to only write a limited amount of words x

    Aww seriously I'm shy at times but most of the time I'm pretty outgoing and confident but if I'm with people who are going to judge me in a negative way then I'm pretty intimidated and don't do as best I can :/ I need to seriously overcome these issues :/ xx

    Yeah I get what u mean and omg new York that's ace !! Ours aren't that amazing but still they're good to have on your personal statement and seriously wish I could just get rid of the people I dislike they're so petty and annoying like I'm the newby at the 6th form I started and I knew nobody.. I made a few friends and because they were guys and the majority of the school population is Asian I was talked about for a few months like 'omg she's friends with all they guys' LMAO like what the actual hell I found it easier to get along with guys because so many girls there are so fake but yeah I found it kinda hard to settle in although I got popular without even realising :/ I'm not about that life ahah I like minding my own business xx

    Lmao no no don't worry about it basically because I'm Muslim we have this specific month in the year where we fast for 30 days. Fasting is where we don't eat food during the day but we do just before sunrise and then to open or to break the fast we eat just after sunset it's really really tough and even more so since the weather is so sunny and warm it's basically a month of self reflection and peace xxx

    You can eat as much or as little as you want. Eating healthily helps so much because you're body's full of nutrients and goodness but eating fats food will then make you thirty during the day and tired xx
