This is what's happening under my umbrella.

All this free time (the summer, I mean) has given me the chance to do a lot of thinking. It seems that in the past year, with the suffocation of academia in my senior year of highschool, I forgot how to...think. But anyways, this would be a whole 'nother post--rather, several posts.

Some business to take care of, first!
1. I've been featured again! I mean, you know, whatever, this sort of thing happens all the time, so like, whatever.
I can't portray the nonchalance of other bloggers who oh-so-casually mention near the end of their post that oh! "oh yeah, I've been featured on Big Deal Magzine" or "I have an interview with Really Popular National T.V. Station". AND HONEY, frankly, I don't do nonchalance! (Doesn't really fit in with the whole 'maximalist' thing, 'n'awwww mean!?) But anyways, this time it was on another cool blog called MuslimStreetFashion! It even sounds super swell, right? Obviously, I follow it! Go check it out, y'all, HERE!

2. Hey, my fellow female Muslim followers! Have you signed up for SistersWhoBlog Network yet!? It's a social networking site for female Muslim bloggers. It's got HEAPS of benefits. So take a look for yourself and join! GO HERE GO HERE GO HERE GO HERE!
And, if you join because you heard it from let me know! (I need to recruit five people for the SWB awards.) Speaking of which, if you like Under Urooba's Umbrella...please vote for me! Put your name on the voting list...HERE! Thanks, guys!

3. I've going to be adding a spiffy new feature to UUU. I call it: Best Comment of the Post.
It'll look something like this:
 Best Comment of the Post:

It's to encourage creative and engaging comments! As a 'word person', this makes sense, no? I got the idea from Adored Austin's blog! Well, here's to hoping I don't get lazy and actually keep this up.

Goodbye lovers! + outfit post soon! WAHOOOOO.

Congrats on being featured! Whenever I get an award or an email from a reader it's such a nice feeling.
