EASTERN STATE PENITENTIARY

While in Philly last weekend, a friend and I visited the Eastern State Penitentiary. At first I was a little skeptical of how much fun this place could really be, but after visiting and taking a tour, I highly recommend doing the same if you're ever in the area. 

The biggest spook factor was just that the place has been run down over the past few decades, but during it's time, it was a prime prison that successfully housed thousands of inmates, including Al Capone. His prison cell was the "5th Ave" of Eastern State, and looked like the goal apartment atmosphere of a Brooklyn hipster. Seriously, check it out his cell below.

EID AL ADHA

I'm not very religious, but when I almost wasn't able to go home to celebrate Eid Al Adha with my family, I became upset. At first, I shrugged it off, but the more I thought about it, the more it irritated me. Why was it that the weeks prior I had days off from school for Rosh Hashanah, and then later, six weeks off for Christmas? No, no, no, no, no... not fair! At the risk of sounding like a fortune cookie, I leave you with this, "when not given the privilege of time to celebrate, one must create time."

XOXO S.
