Work-First Day

17 Mar

So, this is my first day after my Viva. I kept looking at the time almost every 15 minutes before the alarm set on. I woke up at 9:4 a.m. I wore cool green top with blazer and my Steve Madden’s summer sandals. I did my hair and wore Night Angel Perfume. The moment I went to sign, the evil lady asked me 2 sign under her red remarks. I acted like careless. I know deep inside that all this will be over so soon.
I have been told that she is the one who was checking the Viva’s schedules and told the dean that I have been doing stuff behind his back (attending my Viva!!!) and told my cousin that I haven’t invited them!! Woman, seriously! get a life!!!
Now I have to start my lecture. I wish myself a good luck


I Graduated

16 Mar

So here it comes my lovelies.. the day I waited for so long: My Viva 🙂

The Viva itself is not a big of a deal. It just means finalizing one remaining detail before qualifying you to master your major. But before this really happen, you have to show lots of responsibility and efforts.

In my case, I study what I’m passionately interested in; English Literature. I wanted to master it so bad and I had to wait and work so hard till it really happened. so much tears, sweat, and literally blood all the way. It was a battle if I could say so.

I can sum up the most important incidents in points:

– My Viva was held on the 12th of March 2012, at 12 P.m. I was lucky enough to have a distinguished cute Viva date.
– The examiners committee made of three. Supervisor+ two examiners: arab and non-arab. One of them simply understands the discussion as an act of “attack.” Poor him!
– I knew too late that servants and coordinators are not allowed in the discussion area. So I said they were my home-maids (LOOOLZ). They let them in after signing many papers.
– I’m so quite person and don’t like the hustle bustle of parties. I invited very, very limited number of people and by that I mean one person 🙂
– I had an awesome treat that day. Sum1 is in charge of the whole set up till the break down of the Viva. Another 2 help me wearing my 3abaya, taking photos of me, wait 4 me out of restroom, passing by every few minutes to make sure I’m all ok and having fun and that was all for less than 1000 SR.
– To be honest I had a storm of ideas that day about other equally important stuff. They happened, in the best way, at the worst timing.
– I felt like a butterfly after it’s all said and done. I went home and played this:

-It was a hectic week thinking of many things at once. My Viva was my last concern. Eventually, everything was in tact alhamdulla.
– The next day I went there to finalize my graduation paper, there was a b5oor smell everywhere. It was the Farewell party of Dr. Hayfa and welcoming of my supervisor.
– A new side of me revealed that day. I used to believe I’m pretty much shy person, but by the end of that day I was literally hugging everyone.

That day marked a turning point in my life. What’s yours??

Much love and pancakes; Zaina

Tomorrow I’m going 2 work. I have been absent for a week now, in other words, I haven’t attend the 2nd semester yet which is pretty sick.

My life is going pretty rough esp. yesterday night, it was by far the hardest. I feel so much ache inside of my heart because of ppl I need to see, Mom is on the top of the list. I talked almost 4 three hours with my bestest friend. We didn’t plan for the call at all but I don’t know she always pumps out when I need her the most. I have no doubt that she is a God-sent and I always tell her so.

I know it will be such awhile b4 we can get in touch if we ever had the chance aslan. She will get engaged in March and married soon and I’m so selfish cuz I can’t imagine my life without her. She is like a dear sister, a soul-mate.

I wish and pray from the bottom of my heart for her happiness.. I feel so much related to her, so I kept thinking if get this thing done, may be I will too 🙂
Still, talking about her brings tears to my eyes just like now. Allah ywafegha, Amen..
