That Time Again ^_^ /
I trust you've been well?
I have. And haven't at the same time. You know complicated me.
And it's very often truly...complicated :)
Yeah, highlight to the " :) "
I know I shoulda told you guys looooads of stuff but... I'm only human >/////<
So, in order to keep my life in check (you do realize the difference when you record stuff down in any form, be it diary, blog...etc) I went through Dec 2009. I know I didn't do a resolution back then... but I had one in mind. I mentioned most of my intentions throughout my entries that followed.
I decided since it's a little overdo that I might talk a bit about the major events of 2010 for me :)
Here goes!! \(^,^)/
*Will try and keep it in chronological order* (heehee)
1- 2010 started off with my being head-over-heels and way deep into my studies (first semester) I was struggling to establish myself among my peers... not knowing how I'd ever measure up to their writing abilities and experience. I felt really lonely :(
2- I think when I received the results of my first semester that's the time I figured out where I was standing... that was the spring board that allowed me to form and plan my following steps into the course (MA course).
3- I made good friends from my group (awkward enough... yes, some of which were English!!)
4- Spring/ Summer found me digging way deep into my research project... something I'll be forever proud of ^_^ All thanks due to Allah Almighty...
5- Major disappointment: Wanted to go back home (Libya) for the summer.... needed a breather really badly!! Did not go as planned.... and I never went. Major payback: I got to work extra time on my project. So there you go XP
6- It's been a long time since I last studied during Ramadan (last time was...in... 2002 I think? When I was in second year at college ^_^) And Ramadan was really hard this year... hot long hours... Inshallah we'll be rewarded greatly ya rab.
7- I've been thinking seriously of getting married ASA I am through with my MA ^_^"
8- I had my haircut so short just like last time back in, like, 1992? :) woohoo!!
9- I felt so free-spirited, and tried out a lot of things I've always wanted to try out... I now know for sure that I'm way stronger than ever.... and I'm a survivor.
10- I've been yet again through another breakthrough in matters of the heart... and I'm glad.
11- I graduated and received my certificate... my main mission here in the UK finally accomplished :)
I think December was the most month in which I cried.... Life's hard, no matter how "strong" I think I am... but as I like to say: I allow myself the space to grieve... just in fear I might suffer from side-effects on the long run (God forbid).
Will be back with more inshallah
Here's wishing you a happy new year... I'm optimistic!! So feel the same ^_^
Till next time
