all the lights that lead us there are blinding

– After making a really silly mistake of having some pink pasta and hot chocolate yesterday I was in alot of pain, which resulted in another sleepless night.
The pain got much better towards the end of today so I decided I’d go out for a walk, as I approached the end of the road I saw the mark on the walk way where I start jogging so I thought ok I’ll jog slowly, no harm in that… Little did I know that my slow jog excelled and before I knew it an ‘A State of Trance’ episode was playing and pumped the adrenaline into my head and I ran all the way home. It was relieving to say the least, I knew it would hurt but thank God theĀ worstpain only lasted about 20 minutes and now there’s just that other constant pain that I can’t do anything about. It was worth it though, every itsy-bitsy second of it.

– I hope it doesn’t rain on Saturday, cos if it does jetskiing is cancelled šŸ˜¦

– Wonderwall – Oasis. This song is my new obsession the lyrics are really nice.

– I’m not crazy about rock music but lately I’ve really been enjoying listening to Marilyn Manson, his lyrics are unbelievable. Blasphemous at times but interesting.

– The FIRST thing I’m doing when I can eat properly is going to Gaucho Grill. Beef sirloin medium well with pepper sauce… Heavenly.

– I wanna go to Vegas!!


17 tracks & I’ve had it with this game, I’m breaking my back just to know your name.

The song in the title (Somebody told me – The Killers) has been stuck in my head literally all day, I was out for a jog and I had it on repeat, I’ve probably listened to it at leastĀ 20 times.
I found a use for my watch! I can use it when I go out jogging. I like timing how long it takes me to jog from one end to the other, I have this specific place where I start jogging and it ends at the entrance of my house, so usually I time it on the stop watch on my iPod (weird I know, but I like timing my progress and noting it down and figuring out a pattern), the watch I feel is much easier to deal with since I can keepĀ changing songs on my iPod without having to go back to the stopwatch application.

My younger sister has her first performance tomorrow playing the violin, I’m so excited! I can’t wait to see her play.


I like apple pie and you like banoffee

I’m not really that into photography but I like having my camera around and when I see something I like, I take a picture. So here a few of my favourites, I promise to post more soon, maybe a weekly thing, I don’t know yet.
PS: Don’t judge, I’m not a professional nor am I claiming to be. šŸ˜€

These are my favorite songs:

Cheftak
Kazdoura
Aranis
Leh Zaalan
Flower Juice
Herzann

I’m so-so-so-sorry

I’m in love with will.i.am’s song it’s called Heartbreaker! Really nice!

The game was AMAZING! Who watched it? What do you guys think?

I thought the messages from the elections were finally over, but noooo they decide to invite half of Kuwait to come over and eat! Leave me alone!

I’m happy things are finally settling down in Lebanon (knock on wood) That means 78 days ’till Armin plays in either the Forum or Biel, I’m not sure! Don’t really care, even if it’s on the autostrad!

Ate machboos for lunch, reallllly yummy macboos with daqoos and salad and bamya… I miss hot meals at the office (Thanks Franky)

Finally got a mani and pedi! Firecracker red! My favorite colour for nails.

That’s it for now.. Until Sunday šŸ™‚


Let’s go, beep beep, gotta get up outta your seat!

Very eventful weekend and! Every time I sat down to write a post someone or something would sidetrack me..

Highlights of my weekend:

  • A friend came back from the UK as a surprise! (I had so much fun Teeno! And will miss you when you leave..)
  • I finally got my copy of Madonna’s Hard Candy which I’ve been listening to for a week and I will be reviewing each song soon! (Thanks TS!)
  • I OD’d on Alaska ice cream cake! (iligoo!)
  • I had my first class yesterday! It was OK but the fact that it’s AUK and the teacher was speaking in Arabic was kind of a shocker! I understood what he said but there was a few words I was like huh? The terminologies he used were in English obviously but he speaks to us in Arabic. Do you guys think I should say something to him?

I shall now proceed to get back to working so I can get myself out of here before the sun rises!


I’m walking on sunshine

I left work at around 7 last night and went straight to The Avenues to meet my friends… D and I went shopping before everyone showed up for dinner.. I bought a couple of basics that I needed for the summer. I got a couple of track pants and 3 pairs of shoes, and tank tops in a couple of different colours..Ā  We ate in Al Forno, in general their food was okay but sometime in the middle of the meal the table next to us ordered a sea-food dish, and it was still smoking when they brought it, everything ended up smelling like fish for a good half an hour.

A friend sent me a quiz (What is the theme song for your life?) and I got the song “I’m walking on sunshine… You are an extremely positive person. This is a good thing, but don’t let people take advantage of your good nature!”

Someone got me a bracelet that is a 50 fils with two holes in it and orange (my favorite colour!) string holding it together, how sweet! Thanks O! I will find out the name of the place and post it here!

Ā 

What just happened outside?! my office just turned yellow!


Creed

I’ve found that as soon as I open Adobe Illustrator I get sucked in and I don’t notice anything happening around me. So I had my headphones on and before I knew it I didn’t even realise what songs were playing. So as I was working I came across this band called Creed and Crossfade on iTunes that I’d never heard before and I fell in love with them almost instantly.. I’m a rock music fan, I’m not hard core though, I’ll listen to it but I won’t buy the albums (Except for P.O.D!) .. I would download the music though..

I’m still contemplating if I like this version or not, his voice sounds kinda off when he starts, the embed is disabled on the original so here’s the link!

I think the guy is soo HOT!! (the lead singer)

Creed – With Arms Wide Open , One Last Breath, Six Feet From the Edge
Crossfade- Cold, So Far Away
