  1. As far as I know, the hijab is a symbol of modesty in the Muslim religion, so I don't think it would be appropriate for a Christian to wear one. While I do think it is good to be modest, there isn't really a need to be that modest, and it could easily be seen as mocking their religion, or not taking it seriously. It makes me uncomfortable when people wear the cross or get it tattooed on themselves and don't believe in Christ, and I can imagine a Muslim person might feel the same way because the hijab is a pretty recognizable sign that someone is of the Muslim faith. Also, you mentioned in your question that women of that faith are required to wear wear a hijab to cover their hair, and I think that is true in some countries, but in other countries they make the choice to do so after puberty because it's an important part of their faith, to my understanding.
  2. I was talking to a friend of mine a few weeks ago, and he started making fun of Christianity, which is not okay with me, and I told him so. I have known for a long time that he is an atheist, but as it would turn out, he didn't know I was a Christian. He apologized, and hasn't done it again, but the conversation keeps bothering me. I started paying attention to specific things my friends said more, and realized that many of them are probably bad influences, and that more of them are atheists than Christians, and that most of the ones who claim to be Christians don't behave in a good manner. I also realized that I haven't been very good at owning up to my faith. As a result, I've been going to church more, and have been making an effort to be a better Christian. I know I need to make new friends, as all but a few of the ones I have now aren't good friends for a Christian to have. Turns out, it's hard to make new friends, and to give up friendships you've had since the start of middle school, even though I feel like I need to. I don't have anyone my age to talk to about this problem, so I figured maybe I should go online to find people of a similar age and faith to talk to. And that's the reason I'm on this website. To actually talk a bit about myself and my personality: My name is Abbie, and I'm fifteen. I have a cat named Molly, a dog who I have nicknamed Paarthurnax, and I enjoy video games and origami. Which I guess aren't really similar hobbies. I also play tuba, and band class is a pretty big part of my life. I'm kind of a homebody and mostly only leave the house to go to church, school, or to perform in a concert for band. My favourite video games are Skyrim and Rocket Slime. I often have a tendency to worry about things that don't make sense. That's all I can think of to say about myself, so I guess that's it. I look forward to meeting new people. Gee, this post is longer than intended.
  3. I just started a new account, and I was asked to put down the current month. It is April fifth, but the site wouldn't accept my information until I said it was March.
