The Graduate

I Did it!!!

I passed my Masters 😀 I am so overjoyed el7imdilla! It was probably the best email I have received in a while.


Anyways, about a month ago Mirim and I went on a mini europe trip, our first stop was London, where we spent a couple of days and I went to turn in my dissertation, then we headed to Amsterdam and then to Brussels and back to London.  I LOVED that trip, it was basically a trip of food food food, relaxing and walking around.  I had the best food in Brussels!

The funny thing was that the whole trip I had a feeling that my phone was going to get stolen, and up until I was in Heathrow checking in for my flight back to Kuwait, it was still on me.  All of a sudden, in the middle of trying to get everything done my phone goes missing! The thing is, I am not pissed about the actual phone, but the pictures in the fone, SO MANY MEMORIES!

I don’t understand why people steal phones, ya3ni you can get them for so cheap now, WHYYY STEAL A PHONE! Anyways KHEEERA!

Oo shay el thani that I don’t get, is when I told people I am going to Amsterdam they ask me why I’m going, theres nothing there its a country of “da3ara and mukhadarat”.  Um really?? There is so much more to Amsterdam than the red light district! First of all, its beautiful, I seriously felt like I was walking around in a painting.  You could walk for hours (like London) and just get lost in the city.  Second of all, their french fries are amazing.  Third of all, there is soo much history and I am a history nerd, especially when it comes to modern european history.

As much as I disliked studying in London, I MISS IT! Okay so the education system didn’t tickle my fancy, but everything else just made me gidddyyyyy, especially the food! Ghair the food hall in Selfridges, and the open air food market in Sloane Square on weekends, I love Pret a Manger and Marks and Spencer food! I miss walking around for NO REASON, and sitting on the train or the tube listening to music and making up imaginary stories about people sitting around me.
