Quckie ;)

*sighs* took me I think three years to fully understand this song, but no worries. I got it in the end:P!

Bon chanson nadim

My mother used to sing this to me when I was a baby. When we first moved to Montreal, I sang it to my french neighbours. It was my way of communicating seeing that I didnt speak a word of french or english at 3 ;).

will do some serious blog hopping, soon I promise

Stay ethnic my lovelys;)

Im sweet like, lalalalalala

I am going insane, I mean more so then usual without stress. I mean I finished school eh? But I still go to the lab cause I am still running experiements and what not and I need to annoy my prof daily or else I feel incomplete.

Ilmuhim lets get back to the stress, I am getting withdrawl people..really its kinda sad. I work two jobs, I volunteer and I go to the lab..On top of that I am a maid/servent/slave for my family these days since i have no school..

I think you guys should also know, that I succumbed ..I did I did..I am a weak weak human being..I couldnt resist..

it was so tempting

so inviting

so mysterious

so sexy

so irresistable..

just downright erotic

I accepted the offer I got from my current uni for my masters in neuroscience..I know
I know

I should have moved to some other city-->broke ass cant do it

I should have taken a job in the middle east--> got offered, still thinking..but you get paid more when you have masters:P

I should have taken a year off to enjoy breathing normally--normal is overrated..

so yea

I cant wait for stress, how pathetic is that?!?!?!?!?

I need help..

and ice cream

stay sweet my lovelys
