Dallas Samagam

Well, I finally have some time to do a new blog post. Last weekend, I attended an AKJ kirtan samagam program in Dallas and it was amazing. At least, when I wasn't on the verge of falling asleep. Thankfully, the gurdwara had rooms upstairs in which I could sleep in. And I had no problem with sleeping on the floor. I attended this samagam with a GurSikh family from the Austin area. I am grateful for them letting me tag along and I am also grateful for them letting me into their house. I can't wait to attend other future events with them. I also went to my first SSA meeting this week and that was something lol. They all have their individual personalities, which I like. I went to the Austin gurdwara today for the first time and that was nice. I definitely can see myself being apart of this Sangat for the next 4 years. And this weekend is the Austin samagam (which I heard is WAY bigger than Dallas'). So that should be interesting. Ok, it's late now. College has taken over my schedule and I kept saying to myself that I should update my blog. Please forgive me for my errors and mistakes in this paragraph. It's kind of all over this place. Wjkk Wjkf.

Update (7/21/2018): Still love AKJ kirtan and samagams. I also found that I love Dodra samagams as well. Also, meeting the Virdis (that GurSikh family) is one of the best things that could have ever happened to me. They really are like family to me now. And lol, I dropped SSA for the UIC (University Interfaith Council). I think that was a good decision on my part. And if I remember correctly, that Austin samagam was alright. I was fairly new to the community so I remember having that "deer in headlights" look 😂
