I crave for Nando's.

I cringed waking up this morning because I knew it was going to be a hectic day. My free Wednesday is being replaced with 2 group discussions and one replacement class. I knew I shouldn't have much to complaint since I did get a Monday off, but still.

After MAD, I feel like I have gotten a bit out of my own head. I have sort of abandoned my studies for a while and now that I have, must, need to pick it up again, I find it quite difficult. I know this will be on my own implication but I have gotten Mama, Abah and my promise to them as a reminder for me to score well today. Plus, I have made a bet with a friend of mine to score High Distinctions for at least two of my four subjects.

My Marketing group discussion today went better than I thought it would. The people are so fun and they are extremely nice. They are quite updated with their work and pushed me to do good as well, as compared to my OB group last year where there wasn't much cohesiveness and teamwork. I have another at 4 o'clock later today with a very handsome Australian friend of mine, Xavier. He is so enthusiastic about Arabic that he even excites me into it.

I'm not as excited about tomorrow's Micro discussion though. Simply because I barely know my group mates (I was recruited as a matter of factly) and we need to answer our own questions before coming in the discussion. I know thats basically how these things work but as I have been quite out of Micro, I'm not sure how pathetic I will look tomorrow. I'm glad I have some free time to study for it today.

Other than that, I guess I'm just really excited to go see my sister and be at her Graduation in July. I have not seen her for a while (okay so last Raya wasn't that long) but the best part of it is that mom let me stay in London longer than the family will, which means I get to tour the place on my own account. Ayong promised a short trip to Paris and Rome along the lines. Whats even better she said she will be dumping all her winter coats and what not to me. I much trust her fashion sense so I'm looking forward to that. I would also be able to spend some long awaited time with Shahir (much to mom's delight) :)

Other than that, I have a bowling tournament this Saturday which I have yet to prepare for. It doesn't help that I sprained my right wrist for what reason ntah. I'm looking forward to Friday's usrah actually since we've missed it for almost 2 weeks now. The MAD team will also have a makan2 next week and I considered my infamous bread pudding again. One assignment due next week and two in the upcoming week.

And I'm fat.

- I'll never be the same, if we ever meet again ;D

Harmony to my heartbeat

I find changing a habit is ridiculously difficult. I do believe that when you set your mind, initially you will start changing for the better. But soon time passes and those old habits start coming in and taking over again. And in my very familiar case, my habit of procrastinating is leaving me awake at 5 in the morning while trying to squeeze my brain thinking what In Addition To is in Arabic.

I shall wait for my Subuh prayers and hit the bed before my morning class later.

:- I want a harmony to my heartbeat :)

Slip your fingers, tap your toes and hum a tune :)

I particularly like the one in italic :)

Remember when you told me in the morning you said I was tough
Tougher than the average women but I guess that is not tough enough
Cause when you left me on the weekend I was crumbling
Like the roots and the stem, like a flower dying in the garden

Now I'm gonna have to strengthen up my little heart
Find my own way, light my torch and sparkle my own spark
When I wake up in the morning I felt very numb
But I'm gonna get through
I'm gonna tell myself everyday

Get yourself up, get yourself up, get yourself up from bed
This is a new day, this is a new day, this is a new day today
Slipping your fingers, tapping your toes, you are humming a tune
You know, you know
This is a new day, this is a new day, this is a new day today

On the borderline from what is right to what is wrong
There I am and there I try, I try to carry on
And when I'm standing on a mountain I feel brave and strong
And I'm gonna get through
With or without you

I'm gonna change, I'm gonna change, I'm gonna change the way I see myself today
But there's gotta be an easier way, an easier way to start the day
