Manic Monday


  1. I am done with the semester.
  2. I am done with presenting my paper at the young scholars conference.
  3. I still have to go to work.
  4. I need a break
  5. This is killing me!


So, for a change, today I am taking my brother and my cousin's son out, since I no longer have to study/go to class after work!
I found this through here.

I am reading الصياد و اليمام by ابراهيم عبدالمجيد . He also wrote " No One Sleeps in Alexandria" which I read in English. I express myself better in English, I think in English...I read quicker in English and it's a shame that I don't master my own language...

So I am reading an Arabic book!

Make Monday a perfect day because it's never too late!

“…the ones mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing but burn, burn, burn like fabulous roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes ‘Awww!” – Jack Kerouac

I miss you, Miss Adventure!

I hate Mondays.
My perfect day has to include other people (I'm clingy and needy) so I couldn't figure it out.
hahaha,
I have a cold.
I love you!

i know what you mean about not being able to do as well in your own language as in english. i am in the same boat. at least in arabic you have material to read. in my language, there is little that is worth reading!

Awh congratulations!!!!! You won't know yourself with all that free time! :)

Do you speak English normally or do you speak Arabic normally, or is it half-and-half? (Do pardon my ignorance)

Mondays are nice.. better than tuesdays and wednessdays..
did you ever forget which day it is..

cause sometimes it doesnt make sense.. what is the difference between monday and tuesday and wednessday .. what if we re-name them.. you know something. i believe all these days are made to lead to the weekend.. but what if the weekend is just a normal day.. then all the days would be equal .. isnt that correct..

anyway.. enjoy your day ..

Congratulations on wrapping up the semester!

Isn't it so strange how we "think" in our language? I've thought about it before. Do we really think in our language, what are these words? Or is it a universal code, that anyone could attempt to understand?

I would love to learn another language.

I miss you, Sara!!!
I am in Norway at the moment, Couchsurfing, and just today I was telling my host about On The Road, because she had mentioned getting 'the itch' to get up and just go and explore. So, I was telling her about the book, and of course I thought of you.
I take it you liked it, then? Have you finished it??
<3

I no longer have to study/go to class anymore!! yay!
I went to Arabic school for about 3 years when I was back in Nigeria. It sucks that I can't remember most of it. I wish I could.
I have an Arabic Qur'an that just sits there while I read my English one. :(
Have fun!


LOVE!

the quote was exquisite.

i have missed you. you sound like you need a break. i hope you get one!

Livingsword said...

Hi Sara,

Your blog provided me with 6 smiles, 3 knowing nods and some thoughts about walking through life in another persons shoes…thanks!

Enjoy your outing =) What a thoughtful way to break the mundane.

tywo said...

I have never read "I wrote this for you", but I'm interested.
I love so many quotes from the Qur'an. They make me ponder. They are not straightforward, they make me think well. They are beautiful.


LOVE!

OneCraftyFox said...

Love those images. I find it difficult to read in my native tongue too... I must do it more often :)

Gracie said...

At least your semester is finished. Have fun with everything and take a break :)

I think it's really interesting that you think better and read better in english. It's truly fascinating.

Fé... said...

It's that tiring??? Gosh, please do take a break, Sarah :) Sometimes we need a little getaway, don't we? A little adventure really does well to rejuvenate us! Hoping for the best, sweetheart!

Josie said...

Well Done, but I think you may need to take a little break hunny!

Farah said...

I know how you feel about the language bit. The national language in Malaysia is Malay. And my Malay is actually atrocious! When I start speaking Malay people usually either start laughing or tell me to stop altogether! I can't help it, I think in English! LOL

Nikolett said...

Yay! Congrats on being done with your semester and presenting your paper :) but I do hope you get a well-deserved break ... and major kudos for reading an Arabic book! I have the third Harry Potter book in Polish which I want to read this summer ... it's my second language but I want to master it more, as wel. Hope you have a great rest of the week! :)

Ohhh myyyy how I've missed you!!! Elle is settling into a nightly bed time... it gives me time to read my favorites again!

Winnie said...

My friend asked me a similar question the other day, and as I live in the UK, speak English almost all the time, I think in English. My cantonese is good but unfortunately I didn't stay at chinese school for long enough to be able to read chinese fluently! My one regret!

Congrats on finishing--I entirely hear you about the need for time off. That's great that you are reading something in Arabic--I hope it is enjoyable.

Jodes said...

oh gosh, that is one of my favorite quotes by kerouac. him and i are so cut of the same cloth!

Dina's Days said...

Oh I remember when I used to be able to read like a champ in Arabic, if you don't keep up with it, it's so hard. I try to read the newspaper in Arabic online everyday but I forget to sometimes! Sounds like a good book!
