-falls flat on face-
Ugh! Well to explain, today I accompanied my father and brother to UC Davis (Go Aggies!)
Since it was going to be a hot day I decided to wear a long flowy skirt, something I rarely do.
When we entered the large basketball stadium converted into the Q&A for Freshmans, we decided to climb the steps up. I should have taken the side steps with my brother but nooo, I wanted to climb on the seats like my Father.
Putting up my right foot on the 2nd step, it got caught in my skirt and -
the father's nearby caught me by the arms thankfully and if I could blush out of embarrassment, you bet I would have!
When we were leaving the stadium/auditorium, I decided to play it safe and take the steps down, but apparently it I didn't anticipate the gap between each step and nearly tripped. Thank God that my Father was in front of me so I grabbed his shoulder.
I still felt embarrassed...
And to sum it all up, I hate tripping in skirts so I'll stick to pants until I can work up courage again..
Oh and I might as well tell you all about the Mosque at Davis. It's right across the school! :DDDDD I was starting to like the Uni even more, although my brother was going not me.. yet.
It looked pretty awesome with the outside painted bright blue and there was a mini dome and minaret. Even though it was smaller than my 'main' masjid, it still looked better outside-wise.
I was reluctant to part from my dad and brother since I knew none of the girls (excluding the two that I saw during the Campus tour, they don't count because we only exchanged Salamses.. ) And get this, besides the fact that it was a 'separate' no way you can see the imam except through the BIG SCREEN TELE, they had a wudu station with sandals and everything. I get excited by these small things people. When I see a muslim person or anyone who has anything in common with me, I smile. If there's an active MSA at a University, it makes me want to go there (yes, I judge a College MSA by it's events and member-size while my own high school's MSA is floundering..)even more.
The prayer area was even better! Even if it was small (it is across from a college), there were -gasp- 3 chandeliers! And a little closet where if you think your attire isn't good enough for prayer, because not everyone is a hijabi, there's prayer garb!
I could totally imagine myself walking across the University on a Friday to pray Jummah.
Alas my brother is going here and I hate this whole siblings going to the same University thing. I mean we've seen each other at the same elementary, middle and high school for nearly all of our academic 'career'.
Irvine baby :D
