Monthly Recap — December

Heyy everyone!!! I disappeared without telling y’all, my exam season approached quickly and I didn’t have enough time to react to it. I should organize my blogs cause I don’t wanna post previous month recap in the middle of the other month. By the way, I liked using the word recap more than wrapper so I’ll be using this from now onwards. Before starting, I’d like to thank Bayance for inspiring me the idea of a monthly wrapper. I couldn’t link her blog in the previous post because of some error.

Now let’s hop into this post!!


School

Since December is the last month before winter break, we usually have events before school closes. We had annual day on 13th and it is conducted every alternative year (mostly even-numbered years). So it’s all about stage performances, dances, skits and anything similar. It had been a tradition in our school since the very first and I always enjoyed watching it. But this year I made an attempt to participate and that was literally unbelievable (until now). It was the first time I ever participated in stage performances, let alone a dance. So it was like every class performs on stage and our dance was a zumba type like 3 in 1 dance with 3 different songs. We had practiced days before the performance and that was super stressful since I wasn’t good at dancing (plus my first time duhh). I wanted to quit since I felt I was a burden but well I made an attempt to practice and I can say that I was doing good. When it was annual day, I was literally scared. I even asked ny parents not to attend since I’ll be even more anxious (but they attended anyways, being supportive as always😁). But there was some issues when we were about to perform. I’m not gonna put on all details but well our dance was threatened to be cancelled and that made things even worst. I was already nervous plus this thing coming up.. I was done. So our performance was delayed because of that issue and we had to wait in a classroom for a long time but the worst thing was that most of my classmates were crying. For me, my eyes were literally filled with tears and if I blinked, my tears would flow non stop so I choose of hold on. But when I hugged one of my classmates to comfort, I tried to hold my tears and that was hard. I didn’t wanna cry in front of my classmates, I mean I never cried in front of them anyways and I didn’t want to. But when my best friends entered, I told them everything and started crying heavily. So now it was like everyone is crying and when I hug anyone I’ll cry even more (man I’m literally laughing while writing this😂) I was so nervous about the dance and now scared about our performance being cancelled. Later on, after many discussions, our performance was confirmed and I can’t help but laugh. It was insane. Now, when I think about it, I find it funny and I always ask my self: why did I even cry?

Anyways the dance went well, except the part when I FORGOT some steps and moved my left hand instead of my right one. Oh God! that is so embarrassing if you only saw the video!! Everyone, students and parents, saw me plus it got recorded and the DVDs would be out soon. Ughhh. But this was my first and last performance on stage, I sure am not participating again. I had to be the odd one with hijab on but still I would never remove it 🙂 and not to mention that that was the first time I kept make up even if it’s just foundation and lipstick (dark lipstick, thanks to my best friend) I couldn’t bear it for a long time. It was one of the greatest experience and I know it won’t be repeated but it made me learn more about myself… I always fail on stage 😂

Other than that, we had some vacation classes which I skipped mostly. I know have to keep up and that’s actually so much but I couldn’t pull my self to go to school in winter duh?! I actually attended 2 days out of 6 xD


My Photography

damn this is my favorite one! It was on 2nd December 😍😍

ft. my little sister

I’m proud of this one.. after learning a new photography hack XD


Celebrations

December was important ever since the second day. One, because it was my little sister birthday. Two, it was UAE’s national (I somewhat consider it as my home) and even though I’m not an emirati citizen yet being a part of this country is something to be proud of. I planned to go out on that day but since it was sister’s birthday I chose to stay at home to celebrate it with my family and her friends. WoW!! What a great sister I am, aye? 😂. But actually I did that cause I’m pretty sure the streets were full of traffic and I might return to home late at night and I don’t like that. Anyways, is was one hell of a party, I enjoyed staying around her crazy friends and I realized that I enjoy being around youngsters.


Favorites

MUSIC

Good years by Zayn

I’m so addicted to this song and I don’t even know why. I keep singing it all the time and I’m sure my little sister is annoyed by now xD

Gift ideas ˚🎁˳°✧

Hey there everyone!!! I hope y’all are having a great day just like me. I was planning to go out with my best friend and I wanted to buy her a late birthday gift. I think this idea came up at the right moment since I was struggling to think of a right gift and today is Christmas eve so this blog is right in time aye? even though I don’t celebrate christmas. Many ideas came up to my mind.. I wanted a simple, memorable, special and literally anything that would make it seem perfect XD. But every gift I think of turns to be a good one and that made it harder for me to choose.. anyways

Let’s just hop into the post!!!


1. Friendship bracelet (or necklace)

What I thought was to buy two bracelet with the letter ‘A’ hanging since both of us have the same first letter in our names.. woah now that’s friendship goals right? 😂 But honestly speaking, this one is a good one and even though it seems simple yet its valuable.

2. A mug

This one is so cute and can be found everywhere plus it’s affordable haha.

3. A painting

Here’s a little fact: I don’t know how to paint as much as I know how to sketch. Funny, isn’t it? I tried painting but I didn’t complete it yet so.. Anyways, if you’re good at painting you can give one as a gift since it’ll be handmade and damn creative.

4. Makeup

Okay! I’m not a huge fan of makeup like I don’t even put on make up except once and that was just some foundation and lipstick. I can’t even stand staying in make up stores for so long, it kinda irritates me. Anyways, I found that buying your friend some simple cosmetics like lip gloss or eye linear or maybe nail polish?.. can be nice. But my friend is not a make up fan like me (no wonder why we’re best friends 😂) so.. I didn’t consider it.

5. Perfume

OMG!! This one is really cool.. you know the small and cute ones? Yeah!! They’re really my thing!! I love them😍. But here, the emarati perfumes are the best.. like the scent stays for a really long time.

This is seriously an old pic like since last year.. I guess? xD

6. Electronics

If you have a friend who’s so into electronics then you should consider buying them stuffs like: a phone case, headphones or earphones, or even a pop socket will be a good idea.

7. Pillow

To me, gifting my bestfriend a pillow is still the best idea. Like she’ll get to see it before she sleeps and after she wakes up, I mean that’s so cute right?

And here are the other ideas:

8. Watch

9. Stationary (like a sketchbook, calligraphy pen, set of brush pens)

10. A book

11. Shirt (or jacket)

12. Scented candles

13. A calendar (maybe with some inspiring quotes)

14. Fairy lights

15. Sunglasses (or fake glasses)


This post took literally two days to be completed— one whole day gone for writing and the other for checking the mistakes and so on.


I hope y’all enjoyed reading! Merry Christmas in advance🎄🎅✨ (for those who are celebrating). Much love.. see ya!!

We’re changing.. and that’s scary

Hey everyone!!! And welcome back! I know it’s been a really looooong time since I posted or (even written) a blog post. But before getting into this post, I’d like to say that there’s a really serious reason behind me disappearing from the blogosphere. And that reason is what this blog is talking about. I hope you guys can stay up till the end of this blog so you could understand me a lot more better.

✦✦✦

Being a 15-year-old girl, a high school student and a girl who can understand and feel everything around her. I have many stuffs spinning in my head, and it’s hard to deal with every single one. Day by day, I’ve realized that I’m not the same anymore cause obviously we change, all of us do, sooner or later. I’ve realized that I don’t have enough time to think about what’s bothering me. Not just that, I don’t even have enough time to do my homeworks, chores and even blogs. I tried to get back to blogging from a long, long time, trust me. But, there were many errors going on in wordpress that stopped me from uploading my blog posts and that annoyed me. Like, literally imagine writing a blog for days and when you try to upload it, it gets deleted immediately. Despite that, I tried to be active around here, so people won’t think I’m dead. But sometimes, it seems that there’s something that stops me from staying around the blogosphere. I tried to stick around all the time but I can’t. Not just blogosphere, I can’t be active in my other social media accounts, it’s like I can’t stand them anymore. Let’s say, when I open Instagram, I get bored easily and I don’t blame the posts in my feed. It’s like I don’t have patience anymore to like every pic, to comment, to read long captions. The same thing applies for twitter. Lately, I’ve been sticking around Pinterest. I find everything that might brighten my mood and makes me happier, like, quotes, jokes and many other stuffs I’ve been saving to my boards over there. Anyways, I’ve had many mood swings lately and believe me it’s not in my hands to control it. I get tired and bored quickly plus I often find myself getting away from people. Not because I hate them, but because I don’t feel like being around crowds or even talking to anyone. I found myself wanting to alone for a little while. I found myself staying alone in my room with earphones on, I’ll either be writing something or drawing to keep myself away from the world’s noises. I keep pushing people away from me and you might think it’s rude from my side but they understand me and I appreciate them. I don’t wanna say I’m depressed or something, cause I know very well that I’m not and depression is so much different than being sad. That’s one main point. So, I’ve finally came to a conclusion that maybe, just maybe, I’ve been changing and that’s why I started looking at the world in a different way, maybe a better way. But maybe what made me dislike that change was because I was.. scared. I don’t know what’s scary in it but we still get scared.

I know very well that I’m not the only who went through this change but I don’t know how did people reacted when their views and mindset of the world changed. I found myself wanting to stay in isolation, all by myself, listening to my own voice. But let me tell you how comforting that was. Being alone, thinking and dealing with what’s bothering you, listening to your thoughts without anyone interrupting you. That was nice for sometime.

And I think that’s all I’ve got to say. Thank you for reading this post and keeping up with posts. It means a lot to me to find people who wants to listen to my rants. I’ll be back to my regular posting again. Besides, winter is coming and I’m looking forward to my bucket list and the posts that might come up.

That’s all for now! Don’t forget to keep up with my coming blog posts. Much love!!
