Hey guys! I hope you all are doing good. It's Sunday — the busiest day of the week once again. ( In the UAE ) The photo above is a picture of Mamzar beach taken last 2014. I can't believe that in a few months' time, we'll soon be waking up to 2017. My life has been steady for some time; there are no up-highs or down-lows, however, it's safe to say that I'm not letting situations get the better of me. Not yet. Like I've written in my previous post here, I'm turning 20 in a few weeks' time and I'm trying to escape from the reality that I am going to be out of my teenage years, out there to see what life has for me. I've been quite busy teaching writing to homeschooling friends + sisters, and doing all my independent coursework, reviewing for my GED test while making sure that I don't miss out on posting here from time to time. Anyway, to cut the long story short, I'm okay for not being really okay. Here's my Sunday Currently Entry. . .
"Don't Waste Your Life" by John Piper. I have been searching for new books to read and I haven't realized that for the longest time, up on our bookshelves are some really good books in the, Christian category or not. This book has so far been so good. It encourages me as I read along its lines telling me that education is not the answer for everything. As long as I live this life for Jesus, nothing goes to or will go to waste. I have also been reading Wuthering Heights and Emma as part of the reading sessions we do.
Sunday Currently volume 3. I have also been writing some poems about feeling anxious and also, I've been working on a post about the essence of volunteering as a guest post in another blog. I will keep you posted!
to some of the songs sung during Passion Conference 2016. I figured out that attending a Passion conference would be so cool, so I'm putting it on my bucket list.
*sniff sniff* the leftover air particles of the burger I just ate awhile ago.
that life would just surprise me with good things as I turn 20. #ImStillYoung
a grey shirt and black jersey shorts. If I'm not mistaken, this are exactly the same clothes I wore when I wrote my second Sunday Currently entry.
the new course I have been working on. It's called Leaders of Learning under Harvard University, delivered by edX. It just gives me a whole lot of insight regarding the different methods of both learning and teaching. I've been quite interested in teaching lately and this course helps me a lot! Can't wait for the certificate!
to buy contact lenses; I've been wearing my eyeglasses for many years now and I'm deeply irritated by it. If only I could wear contacts to lessen my dark circles and evenly apply make up (as if I wear make up *smirks* ).
a good person to talk to; someone who would laugh with me and listen to my drama about all my insecurities and inferiority in life. If you're that person, come tweet me on Twitter and let's have a Twitter date.. #Shhhh
so ill and annoyed because of the allergy attacks I have been getting recently. I don't have any medical tests done yet, but thankfully, my mom's a nurse which technically means I can trust her about any health issues. Good thing I'm taking some anti-histamines that really help lessen the pain and occasional shortness of breath. However, our observation has led us to the thought that anything meat (chicken and beef) are the main causes of my allergy. But I love meat and beef, and burger (I just ate burger!), and steak, and nuggets, and hotdogs, and egg. Help me, God.
There we go, I hope you enjoy it!

P.S. Happy Birthday to my youngest sister and frienemy, Angel. I hope you're eating, singing and dancing just fine. I love you. Insert *eyebrow wiggle*

See you next time,
I live an ordinary life; striving and making it work in the giant sandpit aka Dubai. My life isn't perfect (I wish it was!) But I guess there's something about the imperfection in my journey that makes it worth the write and share. I believe that we don't have to have everything figured out because if we do, a lifetime won't be enough...
