Frustration Time

29 Sep

مرحبا

I have kept busy the last couple of weeks.

Good news: I have been accepted to go on a international trip for Alternative Breaks during Winter Break.
Bad news: I have no clue on earth how I will be able to pay for the trip or if it’s even possible (I reeaaally want to go!!).

Good News: I did well on my first Arabic exam.
Bad News: I now have two chapters of vocabulary I need to learn so I don’t fall behind; I’m also applying for a scholarship that is going to eat all the time out of my week, and I’m not a good writer, so I don’t know if it will be a complete waste of time.

Good News: I was productive today.
Bad News: I didn’t get nearly enough done today as I needed.

Good News: We’re almost half way through the semester.
Bad News: We’re not even half way through the semester.

I know this is a poor attempt at a blog, but I didn’t want to forget to post.

مساء الخير

Mizzou Round Three

7 Sep

Hi friends! مَرحَباً

I’m about to start Week Four at Mizzou for my junior year. I have already had a blast thus far! ResLife (year two), Alternative Spring Break, Phi Sigma Pi, football games, Arabic, pre-med stuff, and emails are keeping me busy (I hate emails). I haven’t had any interesting ResLife stories to tell from this year yet (except for the girl and guy we walked in on during drills), but I’m desperately trying to avoid dealing with alcohol, nakedness, weed, and all other ungodly actions these children partake in. The football games aren’t in full swing yet, but I’m sure once they get going our butts will get whooped enough times for me to be tired of watching (Year Two in the SEC). I am taking Arabic (my favorite class), and I feel…unlearned. It’s a very interesting class, but I feel I’m at such a loss for information and experience that it’s overwhelming sometimes. Engineering – somehow I got stuck with the same professor as a year ago that plagiarized MIT tests, so that’s fun. We’ll just have to wait that out to know how it all turns out.

I hope you all are well, and I miss you all very much!
