Here I am being a nocturnal UConn grad. student at 3:50AM, abruptly, my father wakes up and walks into the Kitchen area (Where I am semi-working) for Fajar. He realizes that Namaz is still in an Hour and walks away. That commitment to God makes me in Awe of his connection to his Creator. #HolyMan (He Doesn’t Realize that I wish I could be Half of Him) #Mashallah #StayBlessedBaba

I flew to Dallas unlike my peer who decided to make the drive from CT for the Final Four games at Arlington, Texas. Whilst flying, I was in deep contemplation of the human intellect establishing the ability to have the technology to soar far above the birds, multiple feet in the air. To witness the enigma of human potential always takes my breath away and makes me believe even more in the existence of a Sole-Creator who provided the mind of mankind the ability to establish a thought and make it into a reality. The experience of flight is truly one of the greatest human invention.

Coming to Dallas was an amazing experience for me thus far. As I continue to extend my stay here, I look back and reflect on the major landmark that my university landed. Dual Championships for both the Mens and Womens Basketball Teams, respectively. UConn is on top of the national scene and the dawn to my completion of my times with UConn are sadly emerging soon. All my life, I was in Connecticut, born and raised. Having completed my B.A. and soon my M.A. at UConn really makes me proud of this moment in 2014. These titles are like the perfect cherry on top for my personal journey of undergrad and grad school here. Attending the record attendance to support my Alma Mater compete in the Final Four and National Championship game was a dream come true for me. Being in the student section was nothing but priceless! I couldn’t believe Presidents Bill Clinton and George Bush were in attendance at the games. Also at the games were former first lady, Laura Bush, Kentucky supporters: Drake, Anthony Davis, and John Wall. From UConn’s Hall of Famers: Ray Allen and Rip Hamilton. At the Florida V UConn game, I even saw Dwight Howard. At the end of the National Championship Presentation I was able to get Legendary Coach, Jim Calhoun to sign my Hat and the cushion of my seat. Also, Neils Giffey signed the hat as well. Awesome experience. So thankful to God for making this happen for me. Bleeding Blue Forever.
