I have been asked alot what has happened to me lately. Things have changed alot in the past year or two since I last checked in, so I think I owe it to you all for an update.
I ended up moving to Texas to go to graduate school. My husband at the time ended up not being able to come. I took a few weeks off over the summer however and went to Saudi. Of course, I still didnt have the legal permission to be there, so to get into the
country I had to sneak in by boat from another country. I had a nice time there, but I knew I couldnt stay there... atleast not illegally, it was just too much work and problems along with some serious risk, so I left in less then a week and got back out of
the country to fly home. I kept in touch with my husband, but when we hit our 3 year anniversary and I still wasnt allowed into Saudi, we decided it was best for both of us to move on with life and let it be a sign that it just wasnt going to work out. We
got a divorce.
I am still Muslim, but much more liberal and I dont take anything as a "rule" of our faith unless they can back it up with proof from Quran or Sunnah. (hence, I do drink, but I never let it interfere with prayers) Since then I moved back to Kansas to work for
a meat company. I have had some serious health issues since moving here though. The doctors still dont know what is causing everything, but I have been staying positive and looking on the good side (my happy moment for the days is that my biopsy came back
negative for leukemia ). I have found one guy who has stuck by my side though everything I have been dealing with since I moved here. He has been my rock to hold on to when things get scary, and we have dated on and off, but we both need time to develop who
we are as individuals and make our own path in life as independent people, so we arent in a committed relationship.
Anyways, that is where I stand in life.
