When was the last time you sent the universe some love?

  1. thank you for the birthday wishes!! I will respond in a more personal manner soon! My laptop had failed me but it's back now!
  2. I need inspiration. Tons of inspiration right now.
  3. This is my first post as a twenty-three year old.
  4. My car failed me today, but it's up and running now!
  5. I went to this really, really cool concert on Friday and well, here's a song. It's by Donia Massoud, and she sings Egyptian folkloric songs. This is a song from Aswan. Listening to this song in an open air space, the crowd fell silent, and I was in a place by myself- in my head...close to heaven

I have so much love within me that I don't know where to direct, and it's frustrating really is. I have so much love for my family, which it irritates me and it backfires. I miss my best friend. I have so many books to read and so much potential to explore. I want to take the time to love myself, which I have mentioned before but haven't done yet. 

I know I may sound like a nerd, which I am, really, but I miss school. I go back on Wednesday the 5th. And I can't remember for the life of me which classes I am taking. Oh wait, I remember (I cheated from here) I am taking economic growth and development and ECON 506: economics of competitiveness which is a Harvard economics course! I am so excited! Because not only are the classes interesting (at least to me) but this semester, I'd be half way through my masters- I am doing it part time.

Bedtime for me. More interesting post, I hope, tomorrow.

I have a few comments...

1. HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I am so sorry that I missed it, but I hope your day was wonderful and memorable. You deserve for all of your dreams to come true.

2. Masters degree!? Harvard college course!? You are inspirational, determined, and such a role model for me - I love how scholastically inclined you are!

3. I love how you put it - that the amount of love you have for your family a strange way, I so understand what you mean...I completely do! I live it myself sometimes!

Happy birthday! (:

Just letting you know I've been following your blog for months now, and I love it! It inspires me and makes me laugh. I figured it's high time I dropped you a note, and now seemed like as good a time as any. (: I hope your birthday was fabulous!

Oh love, I'm so proud of you. That ECON class sounds hard. Good luck :)
I know what you mean when you speak of where to direct your love. Sometimes, I'm just restlessly in love with everything, it's annoying.
But, it's a good thing. I guess.

I think it's great that you like school. it means you will probably do really well because you're interested in your classes.

And good work for doing a masters degree. I don't think I would have the strength to do one right now.

P.S. The cake is just a normal sponge cake. I actually don't like Ube lol.
