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

BLOG POST

Usually, I don’t have a so-called favorite post buy honestly speaking, I enjoyed writing the ‘gift ideas’ post. It seems unusual and may be that’s why I liked it. I look forward to posting the same kind of posts in the near future (insha’allah)

November’s Wrapper

Heyyy everyone!!! I hope y’all are having a great day like me. This might be a little bit odd and late as well. But anyways, November was filled with many challenges and events that can’t be forgettable.

So now let’s hop into the post!!


School

Most events actually happened at school so I’ll be putting them all together. So anyways, this year was the first time I won two trophies for first place. Like usually, I’ll get one trophy for first place and the other trophy for a second/third place. But this year must be the happiest year for me. You must be wondering why I got those trophies? 😂 Well, I actually won in arabic poem recitation and essay writing and to be honest, all these are the stuffs I’m good at so this was like something great for me.

Another prize I got was from the sports side. This is also the first time I get two medals, though one of them was the one I’m actually proud of. I got two medals, one for basketball and the other for relay. Damn I’m so into team work aye?😂. Anyways, I’m proud of the relay one since I ran felt like Usian Bolt to pass the ballot to the last runner.

Not to mention that I learnt how to make new friends. I’m not a huge extrovert but I’m not an introvert as well.. so it seems that I’m in the middle of the two, an amprovert probably?!😂😂. Anyways, yeah I’m an amprovert. I talk about some topics with my seatmates, I crack jokes between classes but I try my best not to disturb my classmates. What surprised me is that I got closer to my seatmate not just in class, like we hang around together and talk about many stuffs.

Sharjah Book fair 2018

Mark my words: I’m not a bookworm. But damn I love reading some books😂♥️. Anyways, Sharjah book fair happens every year and last for a week or so and believe it or not every year there are over one million books (or that’s what I heard). So this year, I bought some books which I always wanted to buy:

  • Wonder by R.J.
  • Wimpy kid: Meltdown
  • The girl from the other side vol.5 (manga)
  • Death note 13 guide (manga)

It rained, at last

I’m not exaggerating though. It doesn’t rain a lot here, I mean in UAE since it’s a desert. But when it rains, its something that’s gonna last for two days at least and that’s exactly what happened. And guess what? We got a holiday from school and I guess it’s a coincidence since I didn’t even wanted to go to school on that day since I wasn’t in a mood. Like, who goes to school when it rains with thunders?

November Favorites

Favorite Song:

My favorite song on november which I got addicted to was: Freak Penne 😂. Now don’t make fun of me, okay? Even though this song got released on September but I grew addicted to it lately. Not just that, it’s an Indian song and I don’t mean to say I don’t that Indian songs sucks, its just that I don’t listen to them much since they’re all from movies. But well, this one is a special one with a western touch so it deserves all my love😂

Favorite book:

Renegades by Marissa Meyer. As I said earlier I love reading some books. But by looking at it’s thickness, the first thing in my mind was: this might not be my type. But guess what? I LOVE IT! I started reading it on the beginning of November and ended the book in a week. And that’s unusual for me since I’m a slow-reader but this book was something else. It was so interesting and exciting book, it gave the same feels as hunger games and that’s the best thing. I highly recommend it. And you what? The sequel came up already on November, I guess. Damn I’m gonna get as soon as possible😍

Favorite Movie:

Madagascar 3. I keep rewatching it and it surprisingly gets better everytime, especially the part when they sing fireworks by Katie Perry. The best thing is, I knew now when the song is gonna play and I start singing along😂

Favorite food/ cravings:

Kinder chocolate with cereals + kiwi&lime juice.

Honestly, I don’t now what made me love kinder with cereals all of a sudden, but God it’s so good and I love it.


December’s Goal

  • Complete all the 3 tag post which are pending
  • Make at least 5 posts
  • Try making a new dessert
  • Make a study schedule
  • Watch 3 Christmas movies
  • Post at least two videos on YouTube

I always hesitate when thinking about YouTube, I don’t know if I should keep posting videos over there since I don’t know what to post anyways😂. It would make me happy if y’all can take a look at my only video


And that’s all for the wrapper. I hope you guys enjoyed and don’t forget to keep up with my coming blogs. Much love.
