Sleepless nights and other randomities

Its been a couple of months now where I have not had a full nights sleep.  I always wake up once or twice during the night.  Some times its for a brief period while other times I am awake for 30 minutes or more.  It gets really annoying during the work week because no matter how early I slept, I still cannot wake up for work and I am tired through out the day!   


Whats wrong with the internet in Kuwait?  Are all the ISP’s not working?  Well its working here at work, but its not at home, or my dads either.  I mean I could log on to some sites, but not others.  I really wanted to check my gmail yesterday, but it wasn’t working and neither was facebook.  Although I was able to track a shipment on fedex.

I’m changing my internet to Zajil, any comments?  Recommendations etc?  Does anyone have a clue how long it would take for the internet to start working at my house from the minute I subscribe?

The Race is On

I just came back from an interview for a scholarship to study in the UK.  I got a conditional offer (which hopefully inshala will become unconditional) from the University of Portsmouth to study Strategic Quality Management.  I don’t know how well I did in the interview … I finished in half the time they told me was allocated for interviews!

Please pray I get the scholarship and that my offer at Portsmouth becomes unconditional!!!! I really want to go!

Blogging slump

I’ve been in somewhat of a blogging slump.  I’ve actually been really busy, last week was a crappy and hectic week and I have not had much time to do anything.

Its gotten much better this week, I cut my hair yesterday! Well I trimmed it and cut side bangs, a change from my other hair :p.

I became quiet the pig yesterday.  We went picked up McDonalds then went to Fays house, where I ate my doublecheeseburger adn fries, and I actually felt really full to the point of exploding.  Then two girls came late and decided they want to eat, so they went to the kitchen and got food.  One of the girls had lasagne on her plate and it looked sooooooooo good, I went and got me a good helping of lasagne and at it.  I then ate the really good cheesecake that Fays aunt made.  Oh how I love food.

Some questions! :)

My dear blogger friends,

Have any of you been to the following areas :

  • Portsmouth, UK
  • Morgins, Switzerland
  • Champery (Portes Du Soleil) – Switzerland
  • Innsbruck – Austria

If yes to any of the above please recommend hotels etc.   Also more information about each area, esp Portsmouth would be greatly appreciated.


Now for car fanatics and to guys…..

My car radio can only go to odd # stations, I really want to listen to 88.8 but all I can get is 88.7 and 88.9.  I didn’t buy my car here, I shipped it with me after I graduated.  So its been a while like that and I don’t know why I didn’t care much before.  But if anyone has ANY clue how I can change that, please let me know.

Don’t Get Mad

It was a freezing february night.  The thermometer showed that the weather had dipped down to -15F and the windchill made it feel even colder.

Five girls all dressed in black hooded sweaters sat in the corner table, heads low and voices down to a whisper.
#1: I can’t believe they did that! I think its time for revenge!!!!!  But first lets order pankcakes, its going to be a long night!

When the pancakes arrived, fluffy and warm.  With the butter and maple syrup dripping down its sides, one of the girls had a revelation

#3 – I KNOW I KNOW I KNOW WHAT WE COULD DO!!! HAHAHAHA God I’m so gooooooooooood!

Her excited yell made all the other four girls jump a little in their seats, they were all in their own little worlds, but now all four pairs of eyes were fixated on #3 ….

#3 Okay, so “don’t get mad get even” and we’ve been brainstorming for the past hour of how to “get even” and I think I finally got it … come closer … MAPLE SYRUP and EGGS!!!!

#1 Thats gross! and what kind of plan is that?

#3 Let me explain .. its freezing cold outside, whats worse than having frozen maple syrup in places that it doesn’t belong …like the windsheild wipers of your car …… and frozen eggs on the paint of your car …… GENIUS!!!!!

After they finished their food, they rushed to the closest grocery store and each girl bought herself two Maple Syrup jugs and a dozen eggs …. And off they drove to their destination ….. The digital clock in car showed that it was almost 2:45 AM, and they were sure everyone was asleep.

They parked their car in the lot right across the house, and four of the five girls went down.  One of them would stay just incase they had to rush to the car.

It all happened so fast … each girl took a couple of cars, put maple syrup on and down the windsheild wipers … eggs were SQUISHED onto the car doors and hoods … and more maple syrup was poured on to the sides of the windows …. when everything was done they all ran to the car and drove off into the night.  Their laughter was nervous but giddy, they couldn’t believe what they had done.


Dear Friends,

Perfect Gifts

In december I wrote that I met with the guys of Reminicing Kuwait to make the perfect present for T’s birthday.  I picked up the painting from them yesterday and I was amazed.  The whole ride home I couldn’t help but be so enthralled by it.  I like art, but I never realized how amazing it could be when it meant something to me personally. 

When I met with them back in December, I gave them a little information about T and told them that they could do whatever they pleased, but I wanted them to copy one of the paintings they had done.  (If you go to my old post you will see which one).  I also told them that I only want to see the final version because I don’t want to make any changes to it.

After 2 weeks of waiting, I realized what I had done, but I didn’t want to go back on my word.  So I didn’t contact them and ask them to see it, but I was kind of getting nervous of what the final painting was going to look like.  Kent ga3da 3ala a39abi until last night when I went to pick it up.  I was amazed and SO SO SO excited to give it to T. 

My excitedness didn’t go to waste, T loved it.   I suck at keeping secrets, and I am SO proud of my self to keep this secret this long.  I also had other gifts and I stayed strong and gave them all at the same time.  Yaaay my willpower is becoming better! 😉 

Working with Ali and Hamad was amazing, they are extremly professional and really nice guys.  I didn’t give them a specific date that I wanted the painting but I gave them a time range, and it was done almost on the day they told me it would finish.  When it was not ready they did not beat around the bush trying to make me wait, they told me that it wasn’t ready on that day, and I would get it the next day. 

Ali and Hamad thank you thank you so much!!!!

If anyone is looking for the perfect gift, I recommend you visit their website and/or contact them.  Its not some common gift you could get at any store, and it shows that you put a lot of thought into it.  I hate recieving AND giving thoughtless gifts so if any of you need a really meaningful gift and are stuck in rut, this is a safe route to take.  All my friends who saw their work thought it was one of the best ideas!
