And She's Back!

I have been busy with my cousin, Jen, who went back to England on Friday; the day it rained, and it hailed, and it was unbelievable. The streets were soaked and it took us almost three hours to get to the airport. As opposed to the usual 40 minutes, it was funny. I had a headache, and spent most of the time sleeping...stupid headache.

But it was funny!

We made it five minutes before the check-in desk was shut, and we had to say our goodbyes really quickly, I cried after I finally went back home, well, because I'll miss Jen.My mum and sisters had sushi after; lots and lots of sushi. It was fun, I don't remember the last time I went out with my sisters and mother.

Friday, was the first post-colonial revolution in North Africa. Tunisia. I feel so proud, and hopeful. Compared to Egypt, however, Tunisia is a much smaller country in terms of population, the working age population in Tunisia is around 7 million while in Egypt; 50 million... and all I could listen to was Emel Mathlouthi.

On Thursday, I finally did it. I FINALLY, FINALLY did it. I got a fringe/bangs!! I was so scared, I had wanted to do that for so long. I finally did it, and I got a bit of a trim, because I am trying to grow my hair out.

Yes, that's what I have been up to, and today, I had a talk with the authority's vice president and I couldn't believe how I gave the chance for someone to tell me that I am being pessimistic, I am by far one of the most optimistic people I know. I am optimistic to the extent that I am not realistic, too unrealistic at times, even.

If I get a raise, I might stay. I will create my own learning experiences. One should not wait for opportunities, because we create our own experience and opportunities. Right?

Glad your'e back! I really believe as well that we need not wait for opportunity, but we have the ability to create our own opportunities!

Haircut documentation photo please??

I've been thinking of getting a fringe too, lately, but am not so sure I'd like it... I don't know. Would be nice with a change BUT I remember the last time I had a fringe, in highschool, and how it's divided on one side and wants to curl.... so I had to use products to make it stay in place and blah blah -

nah. I'm probably too lazy :D
