Sad Today

     I miss my friends and my family. I miss having people I can call and not have to check what time it is at home so I do not wake them up. I love my new friends, but sometimes I feel like I am bothering them when I ask them to do stuff. I miss having  someone to go to the movies with, the mall.
    I leave for Sri Lanka on Friday for Spring Break. My friends either were going to a location that was too cold for my liking or had other plans. To be honest I don't wanna go. I am just not feeling like going anywhere right now. When you travel alone you have be hyper vigilant, no one is there to watch your back, you are in it alone.

    Travelling alone is an experience in itself and I  just not in the mood. Granted this trip with scaled back compared to December. I am only visiting one country, I will be in three cities and one of them is a beach resort. I need to relax, all I need is my book, a pool/beach and the sun.

    I am sure this feeling will pass, inshallah that happens soon. 


  1. It will pass and you will enjoy your vacation. It is okay to feel the way you do. It is all a part of the experience. I say take that sadness and go for a have always felt better after a run. Sending you well wishes and virtual hugs.

    1. Thank you for the kind words. I appreciate it.

  2. Hang in there lady! I'm sure it's hard to be by yourself right now, but you will gain from it and become stronger from it. We all love hearing about your experiences and I hope to meet you when I come over in the fall (I got the job!). :)

  3. You are blessed and I know the feeling. Keep your head up and safe travels. Inshallah, habifti, I'll see you there soon!!

  4. Haneefa, I miss you very much! I kiss you and kiss you.

  5. Hugs dear...I know how you feel. I live in Uganda and at times I get so home sick. Reach out to your friends as much as possible, they won't mind what time of the day or night it is. Hope you feel better soon!

  6. Hi, I would love to email you. I have my second interview in one week: one for AEDC and one for IAT. I am sure I will land a job with one or the other. I would really like to know more about the culture.
