Hungry...

Love
Guest post!
Love
And Love!

 

Yesterday was the English proficiency test (finally) for my masters degree. It went great! And then, my cousins, my sister, Mohammed and I went to Sequoia ,one of my favorite places in Cairo!

Yesterday, overall, was fun! The getting dressed (my sister, cousin and I) and driving to the place with loud music coming out of my tiny car. The fact that the electricity got cut off and we lit candles all over the house, and were even considering getting dressed in the candle light. It was so funny!

I went home to find my brother had spilled water on my laptop, which is now not working... so no pictures of yesterday for now.

I don't feel like I belong in this office. I know I don't.

Mohammed came back from Istanbul on Saturday, and got my baklava and a Turkish teacup set of 2! And earrings, and a t-shirt! Why is baklava so deliciously yummy?


I found a recipe!
 
I am so inspired by Nick Hornby's "High Fidelity" and how there are lists all over the book. The top five...anything, everything.
And I am thinking of a little something!

Where and what are you planning to do your MA in?

I love High Fidelity, one of my friends and I used to send top ten lists to each other all the time.

I hope your laptop gets fixed soon! x

and this: "I don't feel like I belong in this office. I know I don't." --that's me too! I need to be free, not in an office with florescent lighting. It's so dreary :-(
