School


❝Hi!
My name is Farah and I am first semester student doing Masters of World Literature (without thesis)❞

That is how I have been introducing myself for two days in a row now.
I've been to two classes so far and I am somewhat feeling pretty tired!
I still have one more class on Thursday.
I've already received my reading assignments and presentation dates.
It still kinda feels surreal,
being back in school.
But I am loving every minute of it (so far)!
I have to, for now, get my hands on 12 novels and start reading.
With every class the number of novels for me to do keeps increasing!
Eeeeeks!!

p/s: remember to enter my giveaway!

Friends


Well,
I've had a really interesting weekend.
Basically what I needed in a while.
I met up with some friends on Christmas, and then some on the next day.
It was fun.
Especially the next day, we had dinner and then we went dancing.
It was really funny, it was a long time since I went out like that and all the attention I got was pretty refreshing.
Sorry there are no pictures, I was just way too busy having fun.
My feet hurt, I haven't had enough sleep but hey, I'm actually feeling light hearted.
I guess, there is much more to life than just being worried, freaking out and angst.

Tonight would be my first class for the semester.
And the lecturer is someone that I have taken classes from before, so I expect it to be a bit fun and kind of laid back.
See how that goes I guess.
Eeeeks, wish me luck!!

p/s: remember to enter the giveaway!

Words

Words like these just blow me away..


You asked if I miss you. I wouldn't know, I've never missed anyone before in my life, I've never cared enough. If missing you is having a gaping chasm in the middle of my chest, wanting to run to wherever you are, and feeling miserable all the bloody time, then yes, Harry, I do miss you. I hope you are missing me. You didn't say in your letter and I am trying not to care, but I do, I care more than I would ever let on.

You said you can't stop thinking about me, well I feel the same. You are in every mirror, every pair of eyes, every laugh I hear. I think of you first thing in the morning and I hate you last thing at night because you are not with me. I don't love you because I don't know what love is. All I know is that I need you more than anything else and you are not here, and it has to be this way.❞

No Excuse

Hello everybody!

So sorry that I have been missing in action, but seriously I have just been extremely busy attending weddings and more weddings. Remember what I said about December being the month of weddings? Well on Sunday alone I attended two lunches and one dinner! So since last Sunday (6/12) I have been pretty exhausted attending all wedding related events and traditions; and the madness continues this coming Saturday and Sunday! Insane.

The worst part of dressing up is the undressing! When you come home from the function or whatever and then you have to remove the makeup-not cool! Sometimes I wish I could just skip everything and go right to bed, but of course me being completely weird OCD; I need to have a shower before I go to bed!

But this time I didn't take any pictures of myself all dolled up. Can I say that I was totally distracted with all the outfit planning? Yeap, I said it. I planned my outfits in advance. I know right, such a girl!

I hope this was a reason enough for all of y'all to forgive me for my unplanned absence here. On my defense I was still regularly reading up on everyone's updates! See that's how much I love y'all! ;)

Lastly, thank you to my lovely blog buddy Nico, for giving me this humane award! Love ya buddy! ;)

Mind Your Beeswax!!

I don't if many of you notice, but every few months I get the urge to go through the Neiman Marcus site just to browse and then subsequently be depressed (because I can't afford anything). On this visit I fell totally in love with these Judith Lieber creations. It's a nice break from the usual butterflies don't you think (although butterflies will always remain close to my heart)? I am totally digging these...


I am not even going to bother saying anything about the price tags but seriously, Neiman Marcus makes me wana be a mafia lord (so that I can afford these things or better yet, scare people into giving things for free!).

Happy Birthday Big Brother!

Dear Big Brother,

Happy 33rd Birthday!
It still feels like yesterday that you were still in med school and I used to call you and tell you all about my crushes.
I remember how all of us back home would sit down and write you letters when you were doing your pre-med course.
It's been ages since we had those carefree times.
I know that right now we all have a lot on our plates, each of us siblings have our own demons to deal with.
But I know that no matter what, you will answer when I call.
A bit late, but you will still answer.
We both know that this year has brought us many, many disappointments.
Us disappointing each other.
Us disappointing ourselves.
But I believe that you still had my back and I, yours.
I guess over the years this is how our relationship has evolved.
From brother you have become and most definitely are a father figure to me.
I don't say that to make you feel old, I say it because it is true.
I know that there were times where you had more faith and believed in me more than mom and dad.
I know that when I first wore a short skirt, you freaked out like an overprotective dad.
I know that when I first started dating, you freaked out as a dad freaks out at the prospect.
But most of all I remember how the girls in upper secondary used to bribe me with ice cream so that I would tell you about them!
Well, I never did tell and I did eat all the ice cream!
Sorry girls.

Thank you so much big brother.
For realizing all the potential in me.
For criticizing me to become better.
For always being there for me, even when I think you are not.

Thank you so much big brother, for just being you.
I love you and will always be here for you as I know you will be for me.
Happy Birthday brother, have a good one!

Love,
Your Sister

Pink!

I was colour tagged but the lovely Sher to show you things that have the slightest shade of pink in them. Well, I hate to say this but I am not a pink kinda girl! Most of these things in my room were either given to me as presents or my mom, thinking that I was the only girl in the family, decided to drown me in as much pink as possible! Not cool! So without further ado, pinkness in my room...


A pair of indian style earrings-birthday present from my middle brother a few years ago


A Juicy Couture box-A birthday present from my eldest brother and family this year.
It's a purse, I'm not using it yet.
I'm waiting till my current one dies on me!


A G-STAR RAW tshirt from my middle brother and an Abercrombie tshirt from a friend.


Fairy lights-I bought these with soulsista on my birthday this year


Dora the Explorer pencil set-it was a gag gift on my 22nd birthday from my eldest brother and his business partner.


Hairband- it's pink!


My bed sheet-courtesy of mom.


Well, since now I have to colour tag a few other bloggers, I would like to see what purple coloured items you have in your room, it is after all my favourite colour! So I now tag


Your mission now, if you choose to accept (how mission impossible does that sound? although you have no choice but to accept! teehee) is to look around your house, room etc. for items that are purple in colour or have traces of purple in them, blog about it whenever, choose your colour & then tag other readers! Have fun loves!



p/s: I would have put up a picture of my hot pink nails but I already removed the colour to cut my nails. It was too long and got in the way. My mind works in retarded ways!

p/p/s: I just realised this tag is slightly voyeuristic, don't you think? well, without the sexual innuendo of course!
