Humans appear “hairless,” not because we have less hair follicles, but because our hair is thinner, shorter, and more transparent than that of other mammals. The outermost layer of the hair is called the cuticle, and it is composed of dead, overlapping cells that form a hard protective coating, like shingles on a house. Caucasian hair (left) typically has ~5 layers in the cuticle whereas Asian hair (right) has up to 12, making it wider. Asian hair has a round fiber and is straight. Wavy and curly hair have oval or irregularly-shaped fibers. The shape of the hair follicle determines the shape of the fiber.

I believe in love, all kinds of love. Whether it be for your husband, your wife, your mom, your dad, your best friend, your dog, or your cat. Love them, and do so wholeheartedly. Don’t worry that they may not love you back as much, or at all. Tell them you love them anyway. Love will find a way to balance itself in the end.

On my mind..

Everyday is just crazy for me but man I love it. At the end of the day though, I’m in my bed and have a few moments to myself.. and I think, I wonder what God thinks of me. When I meet Him, will it be as horrifying as people make it out to be or comforting and my soul will be at peace at last? I wonder so many things, like are we still strictly obligated to follow the many commands of God that were revealed to us 1400 years ago? What are we really judged on? Islam is a religion based so much on intention, how can we force ourselves to have the correct intention of our actions? Sometimes, to be honest… I don’t really know what my intentions are. I mean, I hope they are good.. but then again they may be vain.. And I’m so vain that I assumed my intentions were good when they in fact weren’t. I wonder if I really know myself? I always ask myself this: if I wasn’t me, would I want to be my friend? Am I a person who is kind hearted? We have all met the person who thinks they’re perfect and never takes the moment to look within themselves and realize just how imperfect they are. I hope I’m not like that. I hope that I’m smart enough to recognize a major flaw within myself. But if I don’t, and this misdirected my intentions… Is that really my fault? I hope God understands that i’m not perfect.

Shared by a good friend of mine, he has great taste in music. This has been one of my favorite pieces to listen to while doing homework. This is what I listen to when I need to relax, take things slow, and get work done.
