Today was the first day of Eid, and as usual, my go-to Eid gift to my nephews was Lego. You see, boys love Lego. It provides them with endless opportunities of stuff to put together and take apart, and stretches their imaginations. What I did not count on, however, is how lazy they are. Before I knew it, I was marched into the dining room, seated at the table with all the Legos scattered around me and ordered to build them by my 7 year old and 4 year old nephews. So there I was, building Lego toys when I started wondering what the story behind it was. A quick google search and voila! This is the inspiring and heart-warming story of the Lego blocks, and, this month marks their 80th birthday. Happy Bday Lego!
Have I mentioned how much I missed my sis and her kids this Eid? It was so depressing not having them here, however, C'est la vie. I'll be seeing them soon hopefully as I am planning a trip to Canada during Christmas- provided that I am still unemployed by then.
... well, 80% it's a girl, as per the ultrasound. However, that 80% is close enough to 100% from where I stand, and it is great news.
One of my closest friend, Y.J, is preggers, and she is having a baby girl. We are all so excited for her, and I am truly happy for her. She will make a great mama, and I will make a great whacky auntie - just give me a little human to ruin =D
Yes, I realize it has been ages since I last blogged.
Yes, I realize my blog has recently turned into a stream of images and videos.
And no, I will not apologize, however, I will update :p
Where do I begin?
Well, to begin with, I finished my 8 modules for my masters and have officially progressed to "writing" my thesis. Of course, I haven't really started writing yet, but today my lovely sister gave me advice on how to get my lazy ass motivated to start, and I will take it. Actually, I did take it, I printed out calenders as per her advice and have filled them out... just an initial thing for now.
Last month my friend Nan got married in Lebanon. It was a beautiful ceremony and she looked stunning. Words can't describe how happy I am for her and her new hubby.
My friend Umen is preggers, meaning I'll be an auntie again before the end of this year!
My friend Beli's bday passed a few days ago, and this is for her:
I got the Game of Thrones game on Xbox and it is AWESOME =) I think now we all know why I haven't really started my thesis * shameful face*
Apart from that, nothing major has been happening on a personal level.
I miss blogging... but I've been busy pinning on pinterest. It's a labyrinth that sucks you in and you just can not stop.
This must be one of those totally spaced out posts... but at least I posted.
I am job hunting... and today, I felt like venturing away from the normal job-posting dedicated websites and contact the companies directly. I called up the Audi HQ, had a very nice chat with the receptionist, obtained the e-mail address, copied my cover letter and attached my CV, after which, I naturally hit sent.
I wasn't until 10 minutes later when I received a confirmation email from them that I realized I had sent it from a VERY embarrassing e-mail address that I use for ads and stuff.
One word: Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!
Is hoping that they may find my email address intriguing and oh so cute a long shot?
