Hey HOMIE G'S!!!
It's been quite a while, eh? Well, since my last post, ALOT has happened. One of them being me leaving to Egypt for about a month. Leaving Qatar (finally!!) was freaking amazing but it's great being back home.
My visit to Egypt was full of everything. Laughs, tears, smiles, frowns, happiness, sadness, anger, sickness. Seriously, name it! I got to meet my newborn cousin Hamza, reunite with family that I see only once a year, go out with friends, spend quality time with my sisters and my mother, watch movies, go swimming (and tanning!) and my favorite thing to do during a holiday, change my hair do! XD
We left to Egypt on the 3rd of July. We got to be there for the birthdays of my cousin Hassan M, Rasha (my uncle's wife), and my grandma. We were supposed to be back in Qatar by the 29th of july at first but decided to extend our stay. We were booked for the 14th of August instead. Our extra stay had many upsides to it. We got to visit Sa7el (i guess translated that means The coast :P). Either way, it's the home to some of Egypt's most beautiful beaches. Across that coast are many resorts. We stayed at Mena 3, the same one we stayed at last year. When people visit the coast they would usually stay at Marina. Its loud, expensive and naked :P. It a cool place to visit but Mena is better in my point of view. It's quieter and smaller. Personally I think that when you go to such a place, you would want to be in a quiet, more peacefull resort. Whats the point of the beach if its crowded and loud :P
Our stay also had its downsides however. Throughout the holiday, I was not such a huge fan of my cousin Hassan A. Due to reasons I do not wish to speak of, he has turned out to be a very loud and obnoxious spoiled brat. He is also at that "annoying" age. We've all been through it (he's 9). We would always get into arguments. I admit, I should have not went down to the level of mentality of a 9 year old but sometimes I just couldnt hold myself. He spoke to me (and everybody else older than him) like we were kids, kids younger than him! He would tell me "Shut up, I'm not going to listen to you because i dont respect you" or "Why are you even here, your guests, you should be treating US better!" and once, he even raised his hand on me. To my surprise, his mother was quiet about all of this. She would just let him say his shit and then talk to him like nothing happened. Even worse, sometimes she would go like "aww, its okay honey" when he yells at her, HIS OWN MOTHER!! I was the only person that tried to deal with him and fix the damages but since I was the only one doing so, he obviously didnt listen to me. But what to do, whats done is done.
By the end of all of this, me, Eiman and Sally came back alone. It was pretty nice. The first time in a very long time that i travel without my parents. XD
Comming back to Qatar was amazing, honestly. No matter how much I complain about Qatar, I still love it. Others might not understand but I was born and raised here, in this very same house! So I am pretty attached to this place. By the end of our stay in Egypt I started becomming very home sick. I was literally ill! I would cry at the very thought of my mum and going back home (ITS CRAZY, I KNOW). But that was mostly because by the end of our stay, I started becomming really frustrated with everyone and everything. On top of my cousin, many other problems came up, and they weren't pretty either. I finally got to see my friends who I havent seen in ages and stay at home. Sleep in MY bed rather than share a bed with someone or sleep on the couch! :P
Ramadan is comming up tomorrow! I'm excited. I feel terrible for not fasting last year, I really do. That is why I will be fasting all of ramadan this year, no matter what! One thing thats going to be helping is the fact that college will be starting later in ramadan this year. That way I will not be surrounded by temptation to break my fast :P
Thats all for today!
Peace out peepes!
