So it's Thank God It's Thursday where I am from! It's the weekend and I couldn't have felt better about it. Today and yesterday were rather hectic at work and I definitely need the time to relax a bit. Am I much of a weird person for my lack of World Cup excitement? I mean, I am happy I am on the same continent and everything, I don't hate the Shakira song, and all that, but I am just not...excited per se.

Anyway, so back to it being the weekend - I feel lonely sometimes, and it hit me hard yesterday, it hit me so hard and I cried in the shower, I don't know how hard I cried, but it felt bad. I realized that there is no special person to listen to all sorts of nonsense I have to say (which is most of the time) or tolerate my constant nagging and complaining when I am having a bad day. And then came my good friend (who I was complaining to, as usual) and told me that he listens. He made me smile. Thank you for always being there.

It was my cousin's birthday on Tuesday (the one who called to tell me he loves me). He turned 22 and will be as old as I am until I turn 23 in August. Turning 23, in itself, is a bit freaky...since it brings back Jim Carrey's the number 23.

Being my random self, I have to mention one last thing: I took a nap today when I came home, and woke up in the worst mood ever! Belonging to a noisy house didn't help much, so I had to get out of there. So I passed by my other cousin's house, and we go grap coffee and park the car and read GMH stories in the car. End result: two girls with smiles on their faces!

Things I am thankful for today: Great friends, my cousins and my blackberry, oh and my dad and I arguing about subsidies and macroeconomics AS USUAL! (my dad is an anaesthetist)

Sara darling, it can be hard to go from having someone that always listens to not having that person. I like how you handled it by confiding in family and friends.
I hope you feel very okay soon.
You are brave.

1- i am not excited about the world cup what so ever .. maybe the worldcup fever did not reach me by any means.. beside i am not a football person what so ever.. but on the other hand i would like to the thank the world cup because it will remove the traffic from egyptian streets..

2- lonely.. its ok.. i wouldnt say its easy to get over.. but just hang in there and keep your self busy ... what about starting a wool pullover project.. this will make you feel better and if its difficult start a sock..

3- DONT call SAMA7 Anwar

Enjoy your friday.. i am enjoying mine i am on the way to idko and its 7:00 am ... :)

World Cup...what's that?! hahahaha. Kidding. :) I do watch it...when I get a chance or just need to relax like this afternoon but other than that...not excited at all. :)
So, you're not the only one lacking excitement.

Hahahahaha. That's super cool. I never thought about it before. Thank God for Thursday. What I love about this blog is that it has such a positive attitude towards everything. You're amazing, Sara. And yeah, we should thank God for everyday, because everyday is a good day! Have a fabulous weekend.

Hi friend! I know how you feel when you wake up and you just need to get out - sometimes the things you need are the simple things like coffee and a coffee buddy. I live in a house of 6 right now and at the present moment, I hear my sister's stupid boyfriend talking...he is so loud...I don't dislike many people but he is definitely on my list, ranking high. He talks so loud, about stupid things, he's rich and obnoxious and my sister thinks the sun shines out of his ass..

Sorry for that rant! Anyway, they're watching the world cup game now, and I could care less too right now. Maybe when he leaves I'll watch it! Listen, have a great weekend, and smile - because all of your 300+ followers love to hear from you, me especially!
