What happened to me?

I was going through this blog and was wondering what happened to me. Why did I stop writing on here? Then I realized that I spend most of my free time browsing Instagram and Snapchat...ugh those things should have never been born! It's like the bane of creativity!

Anyways, hello my little blog. Sorry I've ignored you for so long. I've been so busy with two jobs and PhD. I would've never thought I'd get so busy. Anyways, life is great, Alhamdulilla. We are still in Oman and very much loving it here.

First rant of 2016

So I can't rant on Facebook because its been a while since I have and since its become that place where, if you write something 'hearty', people jump to all kinds of conclusion.
Better I keep those 'hearty' stuff here instead of more public places. I am certain not too many folks hit this spot, so I feel better ranting on here.

Okay. So what is this? What is going on? Jealousy. Whats up with jealousy? I mean, I am jealous too but I rarely let it destroy my relationships with different people. Like people will be jealous of stuff you buy, of stuff you get from other people, of your looks, of your significant other, etc.etc. I don't know. I'm not all that. I'm chubby with a pudgy nose and fat thighs. 

Anyways, I went to a mediocre school growing up and that is probably what has helped me remain somewhat grounded today even though I am at a very good place in life. I am not singing my own praise but the type of people I have encountered lately...especially the last four years, absolutely deplorable.

I encountered people who I thought were my friend, but was sorely mistaken. But when I say all this, one might think they probably did some kind of backstabbing or something really horrible. No. They didn't. They did like annoying things. Like for instance, if I did something for them, it wouldn't be appreciated or reciprocated. A good friend of mine and I were discussing this over the phone the other day and she mentioned how this whole process was getting tiresome and gruesome. I don't even feel like writing about this anymore.

I am so glad to be back in Oman, close to my family. I mean, I will be ever grateful to my husband for magically landing a job here. I love him so much for that.

Random rant

Things that grind my gears (the sequel):

1. People who have $60 eye creams and luxury handsoaps in their bathroom, yet will ask everyone for rides. 
2. When you've waited too long to peel hard-boiled eggs. The shells just won't come off in a clean, neat manner!
3. Ode to point no. 1. When people brag about how many houses they have, how many cars they have and when you go to visit them...they offer you only a glass of water (that too, after you've asked them to). 
4. When the dryer has dried your clothes ununiformly and there are wet, damp patches here and there. 
5. When you've bought a fresh loaf of bread and it gets all moldy the next day.
6. When the passenger behind you (in a plane) will dig their knees into the back of your seat. No. Just no. 
7. Shampoo/conditioner/lotion bottles that have leaked in the suitcase. 
8. Hotels that have smoking rooms.
9. A shrimp dish ( at a restaurant) served with two shrimps. I paid $18.95 for what?
10. When I've forgotten to plug in the phone charger.

Happiness is being loved by the one who matters the most.

I had to stop by here to reflect on one of my older posts about being patient for a bigger reward from the one above. Dang! It just happened again :) It is just so important to keep performing good deeds and not to keep complaining about rewards or reciprocation. I kinda do this thing where I just look up, give a little smirk and go like 'ok...I hope its going to be something good this time' and whadayaknow, it is! Thanks for listening to the great one above :) Thank you!

P.S.: I am not pregnant.
