The past couple of days have been pretty normal. Except for the fact that i hate my pills because im always sleepy, tired and nausious! Im imagining things that didnt happen and doing shit i dont remember.....
FML

Believe it or not, some parts of this break are actually pretty awesome..... :)

Hey Homiesss!!!

Well, i told my parents a couple of days ago that i was off my meds (for the past 6 months or so) and they got really alarmed. You see, the thing is they made me dizzy, drowsy and i lost all concentration, staring into space.... I was afraid that it would affect my grades. They rushed me to my doctor yesterday and told him. He agreed that the meds do tend to have that affect. He wrote up another pill called Keppra. Here is the awesome stuff i found out about it....it somehow seems worse... :S

Call your doctor at once if you have any of these serious side effects:

  • hallucinations;

  • fever, chills, body aches, flu symptoms;

  • weakness, lack of coordination;

  • increasing or worsening seizures; or

  • nausea, stomach pain, loss of appetite, itching, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes).

Less serious Keppra side effects may include:

  • dizziness, spinning sensation;

  • drowsiness;

  • feeling irritable;

  • headache;

  • runny nose, sore throat; or

  • neck pain.


Anyways...I feel sick right now. I havent eaten anything all day long and im not hungry. Forced myself to have some popcorn from sally but it only made me feel worse. Driving, let me tell you was a bitch! But its kinda fun :P i walked into a couple of doors, all the walls into the house so im enjoying :P

Ive recently been hooked on some Lady Gaga songs. Kinda hated her at first but damn....i feel like partying!!

Happy new year loverrrsss!! ♥

We celebrated the new year at my uncle's place. Though me and eiman had planned that this would be the first new year that we spend without family, as in outside the house with friends but my uncle planned my cousins birthday part that day. It was alright, enjoyed the company of the little children! xD



The weather was really nice today. It rained just 30 minutes into 2010. I hope thats a sign that we have a good year ahead of us :P


I took this pic at around....5....ish...i think. Hehehe, beautiful isnt it? :)

In other news! A couple of days ago we spend the day with Jayson who was awesome enough to take us out of our misery at home. We didnt do much but it was awesome xD However, i did come to the conclusion that we are a bunch of very indecisive people :P We met up at Silver then decided to go to The Pearl. Half way there i needed to pee so we stopped at this group of restaurants and cafes. Then we decided that we're going to go to Freedom (as Jayson calls it). Its the road that takes you to Al-Khor. Eiman didnt like the idea so we said we'll go to Bandar instead. Then Jayson asked Eiman if she has ever been to the top of Aspire Park hill. She said no and that was our next destination! We chilled there for a bit, had coffee at this cute little cabin cafe and then went to Villagio for dinner :)

The awesome fountain! xD

Another thing i did earlier this week was meet Princess!! xD Fahed's new adorable little pink kitten xD They got it pink but his brother managed to remove most of the color (which obviously is not natural)


 
I hope this year brings you the best of the best and everything you've wished for comes true. ♥♥


Dirty Little Secret....?
lingsbling

Hey Peeps!

Okay, so I've been thinking a lot about making a post about this and I have finally decided that I will. This is something that I don't usually tell people about but I have come to a conclusion that I should not be ashamed. I would usually tell myself that people will treat  me differently when they find out but so what, if you can't accept something that is part of who I am, then I probably deserve a better friend....sa7?

Anyways, the whole point I'm trying to get to is that I am epileptic (I have epilepsy). The medical definition of that is "common chronic neurological disorder characterized by recurrent unprovoked seizures. These seizures are transient signs and/or symptoms of abnormal, excessive or synchronous neuronal activity in the brain. About 50 million people worldwide have epilepsy, with almost 90% of these people being in developing countries. Epilepsy is more likely to occur in young children or people over the age of 65 years; however it can occur at any time. Epilepsy is usually controlled, but not cured, with medication, although surgery may be considered in difficult cases. However, over 30% of people with epilepsy do not have seizure control even with the best available medications. Not all epilepsy syndromes are lifelong – some forms are confined to particular stages of childhood. Epilepsy should not be understood as a single disorder, but rather as syndromic with vastly divergent symptoms but all involving episodic abnormal electrical activity in the brain."

Translation= you involuntarily get seizures!

I've been fortunate enough to only get 2 seizures in my lifetime. Since my doctors have never actually seen me get the seizures, they were not able to tell what kind of epilepsy I have. Okay, let's rewind! I was 11 the first time I got one. I was sleeping and having the same nightmare I've been getting for 2 years (I now realize that that specific nightmare is a sign that I will get a seizure). As usual, I yell out for my mum except this time, I didn't fully wake up when she came to me. All I remember is calling out for her, hearing everybody talking to me and around me but not being able to respond to them. After around 10 minutes I regain consciousness and I look around, ask what happened and lose consciousness before I hear a response. Next thing I remember is being carried from the car into the emergency area in Hamad Hospital.

What my family saw and heard=I yelled out for my mum and she came, eiman who shares a room with me, woke up. My mum panics when I don't wake up and yells for my dad. As soon as he comes in, I start shaking and making weird noises. My eyes were apparently half open but I didn't see anything around me. My dad knew right away that I was having a seizure and told my mum to step away because she was trying to stop me from shaking (which would have never worked). He then asks eiman to get a spoon from the kitchen and put it in my mouth to keep me from biting or swallowing my tongue. After I had gained consciousness (and the ambulance did not arrive yet) they took me to the car and drove me to the hospital. My mum was calling on me the whole time in hopes that I would respond but I didn't.

I stayed overnight at the hospital where I was watched and a couple of tests were run the next day. They came to the conclusion that I need to be on medication for 2 years. I took it and stopped. 6 months after I stopped I got another one. It was pretty much the same as the first one except this time, when I got up, Eiman told me that I got another seizure. Apparently I said "ukkhhh" and lost consciousness again :P and I have been on medication ever since.

There are many different kinds of epilepsy and within that, different types of seizure. Because my doctors have not physically seen me get a seizure they do not know what kinds I have. To tell you the truth, I myself did not know I was epileptic until a year after taking the medication after the first seizure. I looked up the pills I was taking online and figured they were epilepsy pill. I then asked my dad just to be sure and he told me that I was epileptic. I then looked up the signs of all the types until I found what resembles my seizure the closest.

Type of epilepsy:
Progressive myoclonic epilepsy
within that type, there are different kinds of seizure. The ones I get are Secondarily generalized that would then "evolve" into Tonic Clonic.

Secondarily Generalized: These seizures are called "secondarily generalized" because they only become generalized (spread to both sides of the brain) after the initial or "primary" event, a partial seizure, has already begun. They happen when a burst of electrical activity in a limited area (the partial seizure) spreads throughout the brain. Sometimes the person does not recall the first part of the seizure.

Some information on it:-

"Tonic clonic: This type is what most people think of when they hear the word "seizure." An older term for them is "grand mal." As implied by the name, they combine the characteristics of tonic seizures and clonic seizures.

- The tonic phase comes first: All the muscles stiffen. Air being forced past the vocal cords causes a cry or groan.(the weird noises I was making)
- The person loses consciousness and falls to the floor (I was already in bed and basically sleeping)
- The tongue or cheek may be bitten, so bloody saliva may come from the mouth.
- The person may turn a bit blue in the face.
- After the tonic phase comes the clonic phase: The arms and usually the legs begin to jerk rapidly and rhythmically, bending and relaxing at the elbows, hips, and knees.
- After a few minutes, the jerking slows and stops. Bladder or bowel control sometimes is lost as the body relaxes. Consciousness returns slowly, and the person may be drowsy, confused, agitated, or depressed. All the muscles are exhausted and usually the person does not have the energy to move or feels pain if any movement is made"

After doing my research I also found out that I DID get other seizure as a younger kid except they weren't as aggressive. I would get that same nightmare and then I would just see a colored ball at my left eye that keeps revolving. It grows until it covers up my view completely. That is where it usually stopped (secondarily generalized seizures). Because that wasn't obvious at first, it was not treated until they became more frequent and I had those 2 seizures (tonic clonic).

So kids, what did we learn today....

1) Ling is epileptic
2) She has had 2 major seizures with a couple small ones in between
3)She is currently on medication for an "unspecified" period of time.

Randomness!

Hey Peeps,

my day was BORING!!!
So here is some of the stuff that kept me entertained!! ;P
I woke up one morning to hear the birds outside my window and my mother cooking breakfast downstairs. I've never cried so much in my entire life. I had been deaf since the age of 8.


Some MLIA posts
- TODAY, I REALIZED THE VOICE IN MY HEAD YELLS WHEN I READ ALL-CAPS. I bet yours does too. MLIA
- Today, I was in a fitting room and I took off my shirt. I was trying on pants. MLIA.
- Today I found a shirt in my drawer that said "Run Forest Run" and showed a scene of trees running from a bolldozer. Never have I felt so clever. MLIA.
- Today, my friend explained to me that if you write 3.14 on a piece of paper and hold it in a mirror, it will say pie. Mind. Blown. MLIA

Hunger Strike.....
lingsbling

Hey Peeps,

Well, it is safe to say that my day is probably the shittiest day i've had in quite a while. It started off crappy, with everybody yelling at me to get out of bed. I kind of understand, I was asleep until 3! But then, as I was having my coffee, my dad is urging me to get up, and get out to get them lunch! Even though they took food out for the day, they suddenly decide they want take out, and I am the person to get up and go get it for them. Alright, i fine with getting up to get food but if you are going to be lazy enough to wait till i get out of bed to get your lunch for you, alteast have the decency to wait until im done with my coffee. So i finish my coffee, and about to get ready to go get their food, i notice that everyone is dressed and is about to leave the house :S Okay, whats the plan?! They were going out for lunch because i was "taking too long" Alright, fine! Just when i was about to stay at home because I wasnt hungry anyways, i thought, maybe i should go. It would make them even more pissed off if i stayed at home.

First, we went to NY Deli at the petrol station near our house. My parents start DEMANDING the New York Burger because apparently thats what my mum had at work once when somebody brought some NY deli food to work. The menu is right there, there is clearly nothing by that name, yet they are still asking and asking for it. My dad told me eiman and sally to order anyways so we did. Just then, my mum walks out and goes like. they dont have what i want and my dad makes us leave. Sorry, but thats just fucked up. But whatever, we'll let that pass. We apologized and left.

We got into the car with no where to go and my dad was just driving and yelling and so was my mum. The same old goddamn lecture. "You're useless, you're lazy, you sleep all day long just to stay up all night, there is nothing left in the day, you spent it sleeping, bla bla bla!" We just kept quiet until they finally stopped at Burger King. Now i didnt leave the fucking house 30 minutes after i woke up to go to Burger King. I could have stayed at home and ordered it from there. My mum gets down and my dad is going on and on and on! So i couldnt keep quiet anymore. By the time we got there we were torn down emotionally and verbally and grounded for some gay ass reason! My sisters are crying and my dad is yelling. I couldnt keep quiet anymore. You know what he said? "Your mother and i wanted to go out for lunch alone anyways but when we got annoyed by you guys we decided to take you with us just to annoy you as well, just to get you down!" OMG, what are you, FIVE?! I laughed, i couldnt help but laugh because if you are willing to steep that low and put that much effort into bringing someone down just because your day was boring and absolutely unproductive, then you deserve my complete sympathy because you're sad and pathetic. Anyways, by that point, we werent hungry anymore so we sat and waited in the car till they were done stuffing their faces.

Because we didnt have lunch with them, my dad thinks that we are on some hunger strike to prove our point so we cant eat.... :S Even though we didnt say anything about being on a hunger strike. What i am pretty sure we said is that "we are not hungry anymore...."

Now you want to know what was the cherry ontop of my awesome day? Well, I got my grades for the semester and it said that i got a 75 on EP. I was upset, i cried but i got over it because it did not affect my GPA that much. But then, out of curiosity, i asked Mehvi how much she got (she was in my group) and she got an 80!! and atif got 8 fukin 5!! WHAT?! Even mehvi said it and admitted "You practically did the whole course for us!!" Which i fucking did! Now, I am on the verge of breaking down and exploding. I sent him an email (mehvi and atif volunteered to email him as well) and hopefully I will get an answer soon because this is plain bullshit......

FML!



No Surprise.....

Childhood Dreams....
lingsbling

Hey Peeps!

Did you know that ever since i was a child, i dreamt of one day becoming a model? Yup, and till today, i dream of modeling!! I promised myself that I will model atleast once after the weight loss as my sort of mini celebration to where i came but still, nothing. I almost did at one point, for the VCU show earlier this year but Kareem did not "approve" or give me his "blessings". Now that i no longer have to listen to anyone, Im going to live my childhood dream. Now that i look back, i cant beleive i let you stand in the way of my goals. Rather than being the support  you are meant to be, you turned out to be an obstacle. Ughh, Im not even going to start on that topic because once i start, i dont stop.....someday :)
 

Eiman always told me that i have the "model jawline" ;P



 

I pitty people who change for others and that is what became of me during those 2 years. I feel like i was not free enough to be myself. Fuck that! This is why I am a better person now....I am a free spirit living life for myself and enjoying every second of it, the way it is meant to be for anybody my age. I dont have the energy to look after someone else. I shouldnt even be forced to do that until im a mother. Yet, that is how i ended up, putting myself after everything else.


Its MY time to shine......

Did you know that.....?

Hey Peeps! I read something super awesome a couple of days ago and decided to share it with you guys!!!


"As adenosine is created in the brain, it binds to adenosine receptors. The binding of adenosine causes drowsiness by slowing down nerve cell activity. In the brain, adenosine binding also causes blood vessels to dilate, most likely to let more oxygen in during sleep.

To a nerve cell, caffeine looks like adenosine. Caffeine therefore binds to the adenosine receptor. However, it doesn't slow down the cell's activity like adenosine would. As a result, the cell can no longer identify adenosine because caffeine is taking up all the receptors that adenosine would normally bind to. Instead of slowing down because of the adenosine's effect, the nerve cells speed up. Caffeine also causes the brain's blood vessels to constrict, because it blocks adenosine's ability to open them up. This effect is why some headache medicines like Anacin contain caffeine -- if you have a vascular headache, the caffeine will close down the blood vessels and relieve it.  

So, now you have increased neuron firing in the brain. The pituitary gland sees all of this activity and thinks some sort of emergency must be occurring, so it releases hormones that tell the adrenal glands to produce adrenaline (epinephrine). Adrenaline is the "fight or flight" hormone, and it has a number of effects on your body:
  • Your pupils dilate.
  • Your breathing tubes open up (this is why people suffering from severe asthma attacks are sometimes injected with epinephrine).
  • Your heart beats faster.
  • Blood vessels on the surface constrict to slow blood flow from cuts and also to increase blood flow to muscles.
  • Blood pressure rises.
  • Blood flow to the stomach slows.
  • The liver releases sugar into the bloodstream for extra energy.
  • Muscles tighten up, ready for action.

This explains why, after consuming a big cup of coffee, your hands get cold, your muscles tense up, you feel excited and you can feel your heart beat increasing."

BIATCHES!!!!

How have you been? Thats good, I've been effin awesome too! xD
Well, lately things have been one big mixing pot of every emotion, feeling and experience possible. I went through the most stressful week of finals since I entered CNA-Q but at the same time, I had such a blast! I had a movie moment (only those that are meant to know, know what I'm talking about!) It rained so beautifully, and at the same time I was able to do well in my finals!

Now for the last day of finals....that was a big big part of the mixing pot! Other than the fact that I spent 2-3 hours with Garfield after my last final, the WHOLE group met up afterwards for a little get together for Hala. It was a farewell dinner as all 3 of my readers know. So first, we met up at Friday's. To my surprise, it wasn't a "little" get together. It was one big ass get together. The bill was 1003!!! The highest I've seen so far!

Afterwards, we decided to go to Hala's compound to chill. We didnt do much over there. We enjoyed some stand up comedy, played some awesome music, enjoyed the weather from the roof and had some weird ass cake that Faisal was kind enough to bring! Me and my awesome dancing buddy Jama made up some moves for the song "Move Your Feet". It was so cool that we had to show it to everybody! Unfortunately, our fun was cut short. As we were calling Hala and Jayson to come and witness awesomeness at its best, Kareem got some sort of attack. He was twitching and shivering and breathing heavy and any sort of weird ass shit you could think of. Now, I dont want to sound like a terrible person but no body gets that sort of attack out of the blue, no body! And I was not the only person to think that. Almost everybody thought that it was planned out at some point. For a second I thought it was real and tried to help out. I got a bag and put it over his mouth to help him breathe better. It helped (but he started shivering more) making Faisal think that its not working; LEADING him to snatch it out of my hand and yell at me. For the first time in history, Faisal yelled at me, and over what, something that might have not even been real or was not real. Dont mean to sound soppy but it did hurt. I dont blame him, its the first time witnessing Kareem pull off something like that, but me and Jayson did warn him.

They decided to call an ambulance. I wasnt there for that because I was so pissed off I just left. Now if I was this bothered, I dont even want to IMAGINE how Hala felt. On what could have been (and ended up being) the last get together, doing that sort of shit. When the ambulance came, I heard 2 stories. Kareem's story which was "they told me my blood pressure was high". I know 2 people who are suffering from hypertension and that has NEVER happened to them. Not because they are taking medication that controls it but rather because that just doesnt just happen. The other one was from the guys who said that nothing was wrong. Which honestly is more believable considering what happened afterwards.

Hala's dad was at home or had just come back from work and saw that there was an ambulance parked outside the club house. Obviously, any parent would go and check, in serious worry! So he did. Kareem decides to just jump out of the ambulance and run! WTF, why? I dont effin know! Nobody does. Im not sure Kareem knew what he was doing either. He then goes to the SHISHA! Shisha? Yes you heard me right, SHI fukn SHA! We'll get back to that point later. Moving on! Her dad went in and saw that Jayson's arm was around her (not literally around her but on the chair around her). Now think about it , he came back from work, its midnight or after midnight I'm guessing. Hes tired, theres an ambulance outside and theres a guy's arm around his daughter's shoulder. Im guessing the lights were also still off. You can imagine how he felt. What I am about to tell you is just the stories I'v heard because I wasnt personally there. So he asks who Jayson is. Rushes towards them, and grabs Jayson by the hoodie and drags him to the outside of the club house. As far as I heard, Hala went home instantly.

Now tell me honestly, who do you blame? Jayson and Hala? No! Because they were sitting innocently. Do you blame Kareem? YES because his little show brought unwanted attention to the clubhouse and made her dad go there to check up. He does his thing, runs out of an ambulance, claims "high blood pressure" and goes to the shisha. Now how fucked up is that? Personally, I think that is epic fucking up! I hope you know Kareem that your actions are not appreciated and ALOT of people, a hell of a lot are very very very VERY pissed at you. Like they would like to come to your place and kick your ass pissed at you.

This little incident has obviously caused Hala problems with her dad making him book her for a flight that was 2 days earlier than what was previously planned. Next time your looking for attention, plan it better!

Ugh, I will continue this later. Too pissed off right now!
Peace out G's!

Hey Biznatches!!!

Been quite a while and DAYM do I have shit to tell you :P. Lets get right into it!

Around a week ago, I had a moment of englightment. Me and Kareem were having some problems and I asked that we go on a break because I need to focus on my studies since I only have this semster and the next left. The last thing I need is more stress from something that shouldnt be stressing me out! Anyways, one thing led to another and here I am, a single bird! Now I cant really explain how I feel. Its a bit of sad, a bit of happy, a bit of everything really but the last thing I expected was....even more stress after the break up! Does that make sense to you? Me neither! Anyways, I'm doing my best to enjoy my single life and let me tell you, I AM! xD

Other than that, eid is comming up soon. For those of you who dont know what that is...too bad! hahahaha! Okay seriously, its like the muslim christmas. Except without the tree and the gifts and santa. Its just a celebration with money and new clothes! x) Now im not that excited about that money part because my dad is cheap when it comes to that! However, I LOVE THE NEW CLOTHES!!!! xD im DYING to get new black boots.... the knee high ones so I could stuff my jeans in them!!! WINTER!! xD

Wow, I expected this entry to be longer but yalla, nvm! Heres some photo updates of college! XD

Rant?

Hey Peeps,

Well, ALOT has happened since the last time I "blogged" but I will just keep it short and simple.

- College is making me feel LOST! My EP course is making me run around in circles and the amount of tests is making my head EXPLODE!
- I'm doing a hip hop dance for an event at college! YAY but my body is aching! Also, we will be doing the Thriller dance as a finale! My body is aching thou!
- I had a stress melt down last weekend! :O Not very pleasant! Sorry Ahmed :(
- None of The Army was accepted back into the SRC (more to come on this specific topic)
- Eiman wants the guys to beat up a dude at her school XD
- Kareem quit smoking :O :D
- We have "Frenemies" :O
So much more but I'll just stick with what has been happening lately :D

Well today, the old student council members received an email from upstairs. It was....interesting. I won't add the whole thing onto here but here are little bits and pieces of it

"In the meantime after this week the outgoing SRC will not be able to use the SRC room, unless you are on the new SRC. I am asking Facilities to clean the room, including removing the graffiti and markings on the wall, which I am sure you all knew is not allowed, this weekend and then the new SRC will take possession after the weekend."

"There will be new rules for the room this year and it will be strictly for SRC members only. The computers will be restricted to new SRC members only and the locker assistants. Other students will not be able to hang out in the room at all."

"Could you all please ensure you remove your personal belongings from the room by this Thursday afternoon, Oct 22, as Facilities will be throwing away anything left in the room over the weekend. "


Starting off with the first quote. The "graffiti" on the wall has been there for almost a year now. Through that year we have had a million meetings and many visits from you guys. Why didn't you just tell us then and there that it wasn't alright. Why didn't you tell us, no matter how inappropriate it might have seemed? You know what I think, I think the way you did it (through email) was inappropriate.

Second quote: uhhhh...HELLO! Did you EVER listen to a single Goddamn word we ever said?! How many fvcking times did we have to tell you to restrict the log-in of the PC's to members only. But now, since it's Qataris, it has to be super perfect, right? Because we don't matter...we're trash!

Third quote: Did you bother doing that when we were being blamed for the "locker assistants'" trash? When they had bags and bags of crap that nobody wanted back, did you bother removing that? No! Why? Because....Qataris are now in the SRC!!!


But you know what, it has been a good run! We had fun and we did do something. For all you HATERS that think that the SRC didn't do anything, then you don't even know half of it! We made several recommendations for things, for you, to keep you shit heads happy. They were all rejected. Now, let's see what the "New SRC" will do. I'm not saying that they're not going to do shit, I'm just saying that they don't know the student body like we do. They just care about their well being and that of their own kind! We took everybody into consideration and people actually liked us!
Your loss CNA-Q....Your loss.


Happier topic....umm....uh......pfftt!

Butterflies and Rainbows!!!

Peace out G's!

Hey Peeps,

I just realized that there was a special someone in my life that I didnt mention properly in my blog. My sister from another mister, the person I'm married to ;P and the craziest b*tch on this planet!

Me and Manal met in grade 6. We werent such huge fans of each other, or atleast I wasnt (I hated her guts:P). We were hanging out with these 2 girls (who shall remain unnamed). Let just call them as One and Two. One and Two where obsessed with this thing called "popularity" (especially oNe). They would have these crazy mood swings and be friends with us for a couple of days and then write secret journals about one of us the next day! During the 8th grade, me and Manal got sick of their ways. I was first to leave their little posse and then manal joined me afterwards. Ever since then, we've been as close as ever.

I love you, you crazy monkey!

Never Fear, College is...NEAR!

Yo Hommies,

Yes, YES!! I CANT WAIT. This Summer has been great but I just cant wait to get back to college. Seeing the Army everyday. Having something to do everyday. Being productive instead of just waking up late, staying in bed until its time to eat, getting back to bed until its time to sleep! :P and that it self would be around 5-6 am. Speaking of which, I have no idea how I'm going to sleep tonight to be able to wake up early for the registration. Yalla, I'll figure something out!

Yesterday, I went out for iftar with an old friend of mine. Ive known Mariam since diapers! XP She, however, moved away for uni. Her parents still live here so she comes for holidays. So we got to meet up with her yesterday. After she had to leave, we met up with the guys (by we, I'm talking about me, Eiman and Kareem) We went to have shisha at El Beit El Shami (yes again :P) and it was awesome. Even though it wasnt everybody, but it was great to finally see SOMEBODY from the Army after a while of not seeing them.

Now, for a dose of oddee-ness. This is an article I found on one of my most favorite websites that I thought you guys might find interesting. I thought it was funny. Creepy but funny :P Enjoy! XD

Hey Homies,

As you can tell by my last post, Im feeling better. Believe it or not, one of the guys from class told me on MSN that he was comming to Qatar and that he wants to meet up. I was SHOCKED! :P Either way, whether he told me or not, the comment that shoooooo left me for that blog and conversations I had with naslash about it made me feel a lot better, so thats good! XD

Today, I went out for iftar with Kookie, Eiman and Amy! We went to El-Beit El Shami and had food, shisha, tea and it was FUN! FINALLY! It was especially hilarious becase its been such a long time since Amy had shisha and she got kinda trippy :P There are videos but what happens with at El Beit El Shami, stays there! :P Afterwards, the girls wanted to stop at their friend Marlene's place becuase she just came back from Jordan and she couldnt join them today. Anyways, we took Amy home and came back! XD

Look at how me and Kareem look alike now :P

Is It Just Me?
lingsbling

Hey peeps,

Recently, I realized something. I knew it before but didnt want to pay much attention to it. Yet, when I was thinking about it today. I realized that it really bothers me :S. I was thinking about my senior year in high school. The whole thing all together seemed like alot of fun but when I really think about it, all the little details, it actually kind of sucked. And I dont mean in a way that is like "OMG, it was so boring" I mean in a way that I am really let down.

During my senior year in MIS, I became friends with almost everybody in class. Some I didnt likeand learnt to love and other I  i didnt like but still wanted to be friends with, I mean, it was the last year! Though I still keep in touch with alot of them, there are many many more that I havent seen or spoken to since our graduation day. To top it all of, when I do talk to them after all this time, it's almost like they're trying to avoid me. Who has midterms in mid-july? :S Is it just me, or am I just way too paranoid? Do I pay too much attention to the little things, to the details? I guess I will never know.

Honestly, I am hurt. I really truely miss alot of these people but I guess I didnt mean as much to them as they meant to me. I am disappointed that no body is keeping in touch with each other. I only hear their news through others or through facebook. There are so many reasons running through my mind about why they dont keep in touch. Too many to list but the one that really sticks out is as follows:

Manal, my best friend and sister since high school, was close to the people I'm talking about. I feel like, they only spoke to me during that year because I'm "Manal's friend". Nothing more nothing less. To prove that point is the fact that I  mostly hear about what they are up to or if they are in town through Manal :S

Either way, not to sound cheesy, but I really do miss them. We have soo many memories together. Here are some of them <3

 
These are just 2 pictures in school. So much more happened.

Im not bothered to talk about this anymore, sorry.

Surprise Surprise!

Hello friends, lovers, and fellow LJers! LiNG.a.LiNG is ready to wow you once again.....

The question is....are you ready?

 
 
Yes, I have become part of the "glasses club". I was going to post another picture but I was told that I look angry (thank you naslash! :P).

I knew for a while now (around a year), that my eye sight isnt as great as it used to be. I started having trouble reading boards in class and I have a hard time reading in general. During my visit in Egypt I felt like every step I took outside made my vision got worse. So I decided to get my eyesight checked over there. It's cheaper but just as good! :P Its not as bad as I thought it would be. I'm supposed to wear them while driving, reading, on the computer, etc.. but my dad told me that I might as well keep it on (which is good because I'm not bothered to keep taking it off and put it on :P).

I wanted to keep it as a surprise and WOW The army but I just couldn't wait :P

Peace out Home Dawgs!

Home Sweet Home
lingsbling

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

Anyways G's,
Thats all for today!


Peace out peepes!

What a day! XD
lingsbling

Hey Homies,

Before I start telling you about my day, let me start by getting something off my chest before I forget! At around 5 a.m. yesterday, me and Eiman were up talking about relationships. She said something that made me crack up but also  made stop for a moment and think. People these days are so wrapped up about dating at such a young age, it's getting ridiculous. As the great Eiman once said:

" My friends talk to me like I'm a spinster, I'M 17!!" - Eiman

Anyways, moving on. First thing we did today was go to the MIS Graduation. Eiman was the hostess, MC, Master of the Ceremony, whatever you want to call it. Ms. Nutan also asked that some old MIS students go there and bullshit about how MIS is the reason we are doing well with our lives. It was kind of cool for an MIS Grad. It was unorganized, packed, and VERY MIS! So technically, I wasn't surprised. But i got to see alot of people that I haven't seen in quite a while. First of all, I saw Abood Naami! OMG, I havent seen him since our graduation...TWO YEARS AGO! I also saw...Nizar..*throws up in mouth and swallows it*. Long story, I dont even want to begin talking about it! And finally, I saw Vassil who has been (not) ignoring me for the past...3 years! He tried to convince me that he wasnt ignoring me...I didnt buy it! :P

Afterwards, they called us to meet up with them at Applebees for lunch. It was pretty cool. Hilarious, interesting, fun, but also really awkward. :P Some of the marvelous moments we had included: me talking to myself because Petko wouldn't talk to me, me and Eiman being made fun of, and finally, me and Vassil arguing like hell (I must admit though, I kind of enjoyed that XD). After lunch, we got to take this lovely picture :)



Left to right: Me, Vassil, Eiman and Petko XD

 
Afterwards, Vassil insisted that he goes home and changes. We met up afterwards at El Bet El Shami. It was alot less awkward, I must say. There was more argueing (yipidee) and actual conversations :O.

All in all, it was a good day!

Michael Jackson Dies at 50
lingsbling

Hey peeps,

Yes, its true. The pop legend passed away today in an LA Hospital. Here are the details

"Paramedics were called to the singer's home around midday local time on Thursday after he stopped breathing and suffered a suspected cardiac arrest. They performed CPR on Jackson and rushed him to the UCLA medical centre. He was rushed by ambulance to a local medical centre, but his death was announced shortly afterwards."
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/8119993.stm

No matter how we feel about the man, there is still no doubt that he is a legend. There is also no doubt that his records will be listened to for decades to come....

Speaking of which, Charlie's Angel Farah Fawcett has also passed away after a long struggle with cancer.

May you both rest in peace

 


Why?
lingsbling
Hey Peeps,

I'm not feeling very well today, so this might be a short post. I just wanted to let a couple of things out.

First of all, thank you family. Thank you for letting me know that I am skinny. Yes, I think I realized it when I found it hard to find clothes that fit. The smallest sizes are too big. Yes, I KNOW. I know I get cold quickly because I dont have enough body fat to keep me warm. I know my spine sticks out because I am thin. However, I AM AT THE NORMAL WEIGHT. I dont need to gain 10 kg and I do have an a$$. When you ask me if I am happy with my body, I dont know what to say anymore. I was, until you started giving me $hit about the way I look. I was happy until you started shoving these comments in my face. Thank you for letting me know, that I am too skinny. Thank you for making me feel better. You guys ROCK!

Second of all, what is happening to the world. Is it just me or does it seem like the world is comming to an end. First of all, there is this huge fuss about the swine flu. I am sorry, but the idea of having a disease that those filthy animals get does make me a little digusted. There are 45,000 people around the world who are sick with an illness that PIGS get. EWW!! My thoughts go out to you guys, seriously. I hope this $hit goes away soon. Second of all, the economic crisis. Thrid of all, the wars around the world. And lastly, the hate. Why? Why must there be so much hate? We are all decendents of the same people whether we like it or not. We are not each other's enemies. We are all of the same Goddamn species. We are all human beings, for Gods sake. Why cant we live in peace? Why cant everybody just get along?! If everybody just got along, I promise you, there wouldnt be as many problems around the world as there is now.

*sigh* I know this post isnt going to make a difference but I really do hope that things change soon.

<3 <3

It's Here, Damn Pigs!

Hey G's!

Let me start by celebrating the end of this school year...."YIPIDEEE!". My Business Law final with the beautiful JuJu was BEAUTIFUL. It was so easy, I actually had to go through it twice to  make sure that I didnt miss out on anything. I don't want to jinx myself so I will just hope and pray that i do get the 4.0 this semster. If I do, Lina will be an official member of the honor society!! YAY!!

Secondly, yes, dear citizens of Doha, Qatar, it's true.

http://www.thepeninsulaqatar.com/Display_news.asp?section=Local_News&month=June2009&file=Local_News2009061741131.xml

Not just that, but now, because of this...

http://www.earthtimes.org/articles/show/273286,egypt-reports-three-more-cases-of-swine-flu.html

...my parents are double thinking whether we should go to Egypt or not. I do not want to go to a place where I will be scared sh*tless the whole time about whether I will get sick or not. Not just that, but now there is another problem that Egypt is facing.

http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20090617/wl_mideast_afp/libyahealthplague_20090617160542

Yes, now Libya has the Bubonic plague "not far away from the Egyptian border".

I know that if we don't travel I will be going crazy here. I don't know Homez.
 

Either way, tomorrow we WILL BE SWIMMING. ADEMA, here we come!! X

Have you ever considered converting to another religion?

View 516 Answers

It's funny because we were just talking about that in college a couple of days ago. Though the media makes us seem like terrible people and like terrorists, nothing will ever make me want to become anything other than a Muslim. One person surprised me when "they" said that they want to change to a more peaceful religion; because Islam isn't peaceful enough. I may not be a religious person but that doesn't mean that I am not proud of what I am. And it definetly doesn't mean that I am going to change because the media tries to make us sound like terrible people; I am not embarressed to be a Muslim!

Bye Bye OF1400!!
lingsbling


Yo Homez!!

Yes, I am back already. Just wanted to announce the end of my OF1400!!! It was awesome but the report was PAINFUL! I have a strong feeling Ms. Sandra won't even bother reading the whole thing. People wrote around 9-15 pages. I wrote a painful twenty friggin five (25)!! I am happy to say though, that the 25 pages were the summarized version of my actual report! :P

Anyhow, at the end of OF today, Ms. Sandra gave out these AMAZING cookies, I actually stayed back to get her to give me the recipe! Delicious!! For all my SRC peeps, you will be getting a sample soon. Not SOO soon...but soon :P

I have a test with the beautiful JuJu tomorrow in Business Law :P

 




Peace out G's!

 



OMG...THE EXCITEMENT!!!
lingsbling


Hello again HOMEZ!
Whats Cracka Lackin!!!


OMG..I just got back from getting Baskin Robbins with my sisters and we did the COOLEST THING EVER. I was telling Sarah in the car that I will scream at anyone walking in the compound if there was anyone. So, back in the compound, three guys were walking...guess what I did...? Yes, I opened the window, slowed down, stuck my head out the window and screamed like my life depended on it! It..Felt..AMAZING!!!

We passed by them a second time, this time, I told Sarah to scream with me, except, I laughed so hard, Sarah screamed all by herself, and then laughed her ass off, still windown down, still head out the window!!! I'm still shaking with excitement!!!

After realizing how crazy it feels and the rush it gives, there will be more yet to come. Pedestrians of our beautiful city of Doha, beware. The Mirghanis are comming for you....MUWAHAHAHAHA...MUWAHAHAHAHA.....MUWAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAA!!!

PS: Thanks Clyde and Ibrahim for inventing ST!! YOU ROCK!!!

 


Already?!!
lingsbling
Hello again readers,

It has only been a couple of days but yes, I am back and ready to talk some more. Many things have happened lately. Yesterday, for example, I stayed a little bit longer than usual at college. Mainly because I was waiting for Kareem to fnish his football match so I could see him before I head back home. Instead, me and Jayson went for a ONE HOUR walk. Wanna guess what we were talking about? EVERYTHING...We were on a ranting ROLL YO! It was so relieving to finally let so many things out. I spoke about how SH*TTY my Saturday was, how annoyed I am at people around me and things like that. We spoke about what we hope to achieve after graduation and how, bit by bit, the once inseperable Army, is changing.

 

(Don't laugh, this was 4-5 years ago!!!)
 


Anyways, at the end, I had to leave before I got to see Kareem. We left college at around 6:40!!!

I came back home really tired, not in the mood to do anything for anyone. Yet, as always, I was asked to go take little Mariam to the friggin store. Why you ask? Because she felt like buying juice and some colorful bouncy ball thingy. Amazing, eh? The day before, I had to take her to the store because she wanted Pez!!!!! (OMG!!!!) Today, I was asked to take her to the store to get nail polish remover! "But what does a 6 year old need nail polish remover for?" Because she didnt like the color of the nail polish she bought OBVIOUSLY. So I have to leave the house because she is not satisfied with the toxic paint she brushed all over her nails. Thankfully, I dont have to anymore. As soon as they told me to do that, I just burst. They finally understood that I dont like leaving the house just because she has moods like that.
 

Anyways, today wasn't so bad. We learnt about the "right" way of sitting. Clyde thought that shooting himself was better but to be honest with you, it was actually very interesting. I dont want to be getting surgery on my wrist because my posture isn't right. IM HEALTHY!!


Kareem had to play football again today. And again, I had to leave before he was done. Except this time, as soon as I was about to leave, Arthur came to me and told me that kareem is telling me to wait for him (that sentence was hard!). So I did. Everyone left, and I was still in the office, lying down on the floor (because I was exhausted) waiting and half asleep. Wow, it has been 45 minutes. I started to get worried because Arthur told me that he was done playing and he was comming to the office. Luckily, Mahmoud came walking in (and had to wake me up) and told me that kareem decided to continue playing.........0_o "Are you f**king serious?" was the first sentence that I kind of yelled out after a long awkward silence.....


Exams are comming up next week. Though I am fortunate enough to have just one final exam, both courses need just as much work. For my "non-final" course, I have to hand in a final report on Sunday. Tomorrow, I have a test, and a test on Monday as well (both on the same course). My final is on Wednesday and I can't wait! (and that was not sarcastic)! I can't wait to be done with this semester. I need to leave Qatar. I NEED A PROPER BREAK from this place. It's getting hot and sticky!

*sigh*...

Later G's!


Crazy Weekend!
lingsbling

Hello my one or two readers :P

Today was a crazy day. Yes yes, grasshoppers, I will tell you all about it. But first of all, let me tell you about yesterday. I decided to go to college with Kookie instead of taking my car. Just for the hell of it, we drove half way the Shamal Road and back before heading to college. On our way back there was a big ass accident on the landmark roundabout.
On our way to Johnny Rockets at the end of the day, on the landmark roundabout, there they were, Jayson and Faisal, in an accident. After stopping and helping them out, Faisal asked Kareem to tag along with him to the police station. So I drove Kareem's car and Jayson came along with me. On our way to Johnny Rockets, WE ALMOST GOT INTO AN ACCIDENT........AGAIN!!!! Jayson is....an accident jinx....yes!

Today, me and Kareem went out for lunch. He knew that I was craving Thai Snacks for two weeks so we headed there. We were there at exactly 2:30 to find out that they CLOSE at 2:30 and open up again at 5. We went to Orient Express instead. Afterwards, we said we wanted to do something different, so we decided to go to Aladdins Kingdom. Since I was wearing high heels, we went to Carrefour to get some cheap ass shoes. Yes, there they are, the fake converse also known as double....   :P :P






 


After going to Aladdins Kingdom, we realize that it was torn down. Yes kids, you heard me, Aladdins Kingdom, Qatar's ONLY theme park (until Disney Land or Harry Potter World are built in around....umm...NEVER) has been torn down. Anyways, since all our plans of doing something different were ruined, we decide to just go to CC and watch a movie. Kareem suggested Push and it turned out to be pretty friggin awesome......


Crazy weekend, eh?? :P


Hope your weekend was just as AWESOME as mine!!

Peace out G's!

Short Update...
lingsbling


Hey Peeps!

College started just about a week ago and I already have an assignment due on Monday...awesome yea?! :P

We had 2 birthdays already and another 2 are coming up. First of all, was Mimi's bday. We celebrated it at Souq Waqif. To be honest with you, everything felt like it was falling apart at first. Afterwards, when we stopped thinking about it, we were all able to have fun and Mimi had a great birthday! (I hope :P)

As for today, it's Kareem's birthday. My Kookie Monster is turning 23 today. We celebrated it at Fuddruckers yesterday. I got him DC shoes that he had his eyes on along with DC swimming shorts! XD He told me that he liked it so I hope he really did. I believe that Jayson got him the most original gift though :P. He got him a dog leash and a dog toy that looks like a giant burger! :P Pictues will be posted as soon as I am able to do so.

In other news, my uncle, his wife and 3 youngest kids came from Sudan a couple of days ago. They will be staying with us for 2 or 3 weeks. The little girl is GORGEOUS!!! Again, I will post the pictures as soon as I can.

Anyways, I will be back for more soon! XD

Peace out G's!


Holiday's OUT!
lingsbling

Yo Homez!

The break is basically over. Went to college today to pick up an official copy of my report card. The beginning of the day was terrible though. I had my alarm set for 9 but woke up at 6 with a stomach ache beyond all stomach aches! The first thing I did when I woke up with that stomach ache was scream (and you could ask Eiman)!!! What happened afterwards is a story that I choose not to talk about here…. ANYWAYS!! Went back to sleep and woke up late. Kareem called to wake me at 10:15 and we left the house at around 11:30.


On Wednesday, Nikko invited us to his compound for a barbeque. To be honest with you, that hangout was anything but a bbq. The bbq took the least amount of time during the day. First thing we did was head to the clubhouse and swim. We swam and swam and I LOVED IT!!!  However, some very very terrible things took place. Mikey dislocated his shoulder. The reason, and I don’t mean this offensively, was because of Shams. He is buff and all, but I feel like he was trying to put on some kind of show. Again, I believe he's a great guy but just throwing people into the pool without warning them or the people in that area of the pool is a little dangerous. Because of that, Clyde hit his nose, Kareem hurt his jaw, and most importantly, Mikey dislocated his shoulder. For almost 3 hours afterwards, Kareem, Jayson and Mavin took Mikey to the hospital.


I thought it was really nice of them to take him there but just one thing went wrong. This was the first time me and Kareem swim together. So we were really excited about it. But after by the time they came back, we had already stopped swimming, went to Nikko's place, had lunch and were just chilling. Again, I don’t mean it in any bad way, Mikey is one of my closest friends and what Kareem and the others did was really great of them, I just hoped that the day had went as planned. Either way, we went back to the pool later on for an hour or so.

Lunch was AMAZING (Thanks to Mrs. Gibb :D). There was karaoke (a lot of it!) and TEA!! XD as I mentioned earlier, we went back to the pool and swam some more.

I almost forgot though, we used the sauna!!! XD It was so cool. It was mostly me and Jama but we from time to time, Ibrahim would join. Also Mimi and Kareem joined us. And the bbq was somewhere between\during the karaoke and before going back to the pool :P

Anyways, I went with the fam to watch a movie yesterday. It was bad! Advice, DO NOT WATCH "WHAT JUST HAPPENED"!!!

Anyways, catch you guys LAATERS!!

19 Year-old Child....
lingsbling

This is going to be a short entry but I just need to release some anger!

Okay, this is really starting to get on my nerves. I am f*ckin 19 and I'm being treated like a child. Believe it or not, I'm only allowed out of the house once a week. During college I understand but during a break, that is just ridiculous! People are going out and having fun, and I'm just sitting here at home on the laptop all freakin day long! I actually can't wait till the semester begins. Though I couldn’t wait for the holiday so I could get a little break from all the stress but I just want to go back. I hate this break……

A little something that could maybe even out the mood....


The Results Are In...
lingsbling


Hey Peeps!

Ling is feeling good because she got her grades!! And they are:

Macroeconomics: 80%
Workplace Skills: 80%
Consumer Behavior: 80%
Professional Selling: 85%
Website Development: 90%


And finally, her personal favorite....

E-Commerce: 95%

Ling happy XD



And now as for other news, its all good. Only went out twice this whole break. Swimming at Sarah's like I mentioned last time and yesterday. Eiman has been wanting to go out with me and Kareem so we did yesterday. Usually she is too paranoid to hang with Kareem but she finally decided to. The only reason my parents let me out was because Eiman begged them :P. I really hate the fact that they only let me out once a week...even during breaks!! Thats the Goddamn reason I couldnt go to the barbeque that Hala had on Wednesday. And another thing, I'm going to have to miss out on Arthur's Bday AGAIN because of this stupid rule. If they didnt have to dump all the get-togethers over this week it would have been fine with my parents. But what to do, eh?

And now I have to go with my mum and sisters to the Aspire park for some stupid family day thing because they said I have to. Fun, dont you think?! :D (just incase you're an idiot, that was sarcastic)

 

Till next time...



ITS THE BREAK!
lingsbling


YO HOMMIES!!

Yes, yes I know my dears, it's been long!

Exam week is OVER and the 2 week break is HERE!! YEA YOOO!! I had three exams (along with tons of work to do) my exams where on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday. So I had a day off to do some extra studying...but NOOO I still had to come to college because I had to finish an assignment that I couldn't work on at home because we don't have the software at home!! :@ (Webpage design)
However, I am done with the assignment (since Thursday) and I was very pleased with what I was able to come up with. Believe it or not, he told us a minimum of 5 and I ended up making 7 pages for my website! :P

I had finals in Macro, Consumer Behavior and E-Commerce. Macro was alright, I studied a lot for it and that was worth it in the end. Consumer Behavior, well I don't actually remember how the exam was, but I think I remember saying that it was alright but long: P. As for E-Commerce, the last of the exams, it was beautiful. He gave us a list of 24 questions from which he will choose some for the exam. All the questions that I concentrated on because I had a feeling they would show up, they showed up :P

After exams on Thursday, we went and watched The Fast and The Furious. It was alright. I didn't fall in love with it. I guess it had something to do with the fact that I didn't see the first three :P Afterwards, we went to Layali. What happened there was hilarious. At first, they told us that they didn't have ANY tables for 12 people. Then once we said "You will get a lot of money, we are very hungry" and then mentioned that we should go to Grand Cafe, they suddenly had a table. They table was only enough for 10 people, AND we had to get up by 9:30 because it was reserved for 10. We decided to take it because we might not find a table anywhere else on a Thursday. When it got really annoying, we called Grand Cafe and they had free tables and we reserved one. It was so funny that as soon as they gave us the menus, we found the table at GC because it seemed like we left because of the prices, especially since we didn't look like we were as POSH as the other people at Layali. :P

Grand Cafe was good, except for the part that that Jama said "Where my fork and knife" and it sounded like "Where my F*CKIN KNIFE?" hahahaha!!! Good times...good stuff :P

And finally, as for yesterday, we finally were able to go tanning properly at Sarah's place. It was fun, swam some, tanned some. I finally got to try one of Kareem's favorite traditional Jordanian dishes. I just forgot what it was called :P hahaha...but it was really good (Thanks Sarah!)

That's all so far.
Catch Ya'll Laterzzzz


News Flashes....

Hey Hommiiieeess!!

Its been ages, I know! I have had so much to do lately. Exams start on the 12th and I'm not ready because the instructors enjoy flooding us with assignments and tests right before the exams. Fun, eh?

Not much has been happening except me not eating because of the studying and writing ive been doing. I had two assignments due yesterday and a test today. For the next week I have two assignments for Sunday, one assignments and a presentation for Monday, a final exam on Wednesday and a case study for Thursday. After that LONG tiring week, exams will begin. Its fucking annoying that I will have absolutely no time for anything but studying.

My cousin gave birth this last week. According to Hala's research, that makes her  a second cousin but I DON’T CARE!!! I'm a second aunt whether you like it or not, OKAY? She had a girl, Raghd. Yes, it is a weird name, I would have preferred Raghda but it's all good.

Yesterday, I was very pissed off at Kareem (my sexylicious). He skipped math class ( that he is taking for the 5th time) to go meet up with a bunch of 15 year olds. No offense but I'm 19 and Kareem is turning TWENTY-THREE (that is 23!!) in a month. Is it just me or do I have a reason to be thinking so much about it. Don’t get me wrong, it's not the fact that he was meeting up with girls, because I trust him. The real deal here is "Are 15 year olds really worth failing math for a 6th time)?" NO ITS NOT….but hey, it's over it's done with…so its all good in the hood.

I have a feeling that that girl wants something a little bit more than a friendship from Kareem. Every single time she calls or texts he is in his own world. She talks to him about all her family problems even though they have only known each other for a week MAXIMUM.

A couple of days ago, my friends and I watched some very disturbing videos. I won't name them but they have truly changed my view on humanity. DAMN NASTY!!

To wrap this up….here's a picture of Jayson. He said that I can post a picture of him naked..so stay tuned because maybe, I will get to take that picture :P Jayson has been taking care of me since grade 10. Just like Faisal, he's like an older brother, one of my favorite people, and one of the funniest guys to be around…



Take it easy, peeps!

What a Surprise!

On Saturday, on my way to go pick up my BEAUTIFUL XTrail from its second service, it started raining like SHIT! I thought it would only last for a short while but it didnt. It just kept going and going. My car had just been washed and it had to go through all the mud and the shit all over the streets. It's all good though, because the sight of thunder has once again made me stop and think.

Did I ever mention that one day I would like to be a storm chaser? Im in love with the sight of lightning and could just sit there staring at it for hours. Believe it or not, after many tries, I was able to get a picture of it using my cell phone. Who ever said that "taking pictures of the lightning without a professional camera was impossible" ?(the words of my sister Eiman)
Sure its not perfect, but its something...and im DAMN proud :P




Yesterday was a pretty normal day. One thing happened that truely made my day. I'm not going to say any details but mimijuice knows what I'm talking about ;).

Today I have shitloads of work to do. Exams are coming up soon...*DunDunDuuuh* I have a test and an assignment for tomorrow. I also have a presentation to get ready for on Thursday. The presentation is actually pretty interesting. We had  to interview sales people and I choose to interview someone from The Pearl and OMG THE GUY WAS SEXY!!!

Heres a pic of two of my most favorite people. The guy on the left is HAJI...probably the funniest person i know. On the left is Faisal, he is like my older brother and hes been like that since high school, the sweetest guy i know <3 <3



(Just for the record, this isn't how they actually dress. The stuff they have on their teeth and on their hands and arms is aluminum foil :P)


That's pretty much it for today...or just for now.

Peace out Homie Geeeez!!

A Little Bit of Ling
lingsbling


Well, let me start off by introducing myself.

My name is Lina and I'm 19. I'm studying in the College of the North Atlantic - Qatar, Business Management - Marketing. My life revolves around my family, my friends and my studies.

I have three sisters. Eiman is 17, Sarah is 13 and Mariam (my little monkey) is 6. My father is a doctor and my mother is a banker. I was raised in the same house in the same compound.  (Yes, I like to cherish the little things in life)



 Monkey <3

My friends, the awesome part of my life, are The Army. We are slowly taking over CNA and soon, the world. The army is made up of people to many to name one by one but you guys know who you are.

My life isn't that exciting. I get up in the  morning, always worrying because i overslept, drive to college in my beautiful xtrail, chill there for almost 12 hours (most of the time, just because i feel like it) come back home, eat and sleep. From time to time, however, something exciting happens that tells me "Yes, I Am still alive :P"

I believe that I'm ALOT of fun to be around :P. I am also very modest ;) :P

I recently lost 30 Kg which i am very proud of. Why you ask? Simply because i was sick of being big. I'm not saying its a bad thing, but i just wanted to be thinner (again)

I love a good joke. If you can make me laugh, i will fall in love with you :P. "Humor is way to my heart"

I loooove my music. i listen to music at all times. While driving, while studying, while on the laptop. Even when there is no music playing, its still playing in my head.

I have run out of things to say.

Catch you all laters....
