le vendredi

another Friday....another blog.


I'm once again at my Euro-Med lecture, but for once I'm paying attention.

Had a so-so week feeling sick, dizzy and what have you, worked a bit on thesis, and anyway, I'm having one hell of a boring life right now.

Did you know every single diplomat in the world plays bridge? Apparently so...heh

Matt arrives tomorrow:) can't wait....and then Sunday we have Jess and Amaira's birthday so looking forward to that too....especially....cant say anthing else for now, ha ha ha ha

i'm bored now....becky is sitting next to me and she s bored too.....then there's ger sitting on the other side playing mahjong, and rach is next to her playing with farms and sheep. The EU really affects us deeply I must say :P


enough for now
tataaa

decided to go on skype today after a long while to talk to Mark...and found Matt online.....

annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnddddd

he s coming to Maltaaaaa
on saturday
for a WHOOOLLLLEEEEE weekkk




WOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOO
I'm so happy :):):):)


it's past midday:S

Ok....so I just woke up! As in, I woke up at 10, took 2 panadols and went straight back to bed....aaaa what is wrong with me???? 


Yesterday I broke my lenten sacrifice....went with parents and bro to Melita...and I couldn't resist....had some pizza. oooo shame on me. I have to really make up for it now. sigh....

tickets for Allo Allo just arrived....we're going to watch it on the 5th of April...and I'm rather excited...should be good:)...been watching youtube videos of the old series and some of them are really hilarious. hehe watch this. 


This week its both Karl and Jess's birthdays...so we should have a relatively nice weekend:)...and then next tuesday its another public holiday, so thats great too (you've just gotta love March).

How sad I realised that since I'm working most of this week I won't be able to go to the ezercizzji at uni after all......I really wanted to go, heard that Tonio Caruana is an amazing speaker. ehh mhemmx xtamel. But lately I've been planning things on the same day, or just not writing things down and forgetting. Like the 5th me and Ver wanted to go to the youth worship at the chapel, but now i went and bought tickets for that day...ehh it cant be helped....i'm growing old and my brain is shutting down. hehe.

enough for now...maybe i actually do something before I go to work.

cheerio

of perfect days

It's been a while since the last blog......well actually it hasn't really,but it sure feels like it has. Somewhere in the last week and a half my life moved from grumbling and moaning about the work I have to do and how little time I have left to do it, to just a system of working without complaint. Havn't been really out so much, and missing some of my friends A LOT, but  at least we're managing to fit in a couple of nights out per week. Holidays are around the corner now anyway so we can hopefully have some good nights out then.....I'm desperate for a couple of pints of beers! (xkien lol) I've also been working quite a bit at St James....I love it there: different artists, actors and producers showing up all the time, a million events taking place at the same time, tourists from different places.....insomma, I like my job:)


dont reall have much to say ta..... a big hello to the people I havn't seen in a while (HIIIIII:p) .....and I leave you with this....a perfect sunset on a long summer day....something which we can all hopefully enjoy relatively soon:)

enough for now

10 weeks....

I know I said I wouldn't worry, I wouldn't panic etc....but I can't help it. I have ten weeks to finish off and hand in my thesis, two rather complicated exams to study for, one long essay for god knows when....and after that I have absoultely no idea what it is I want to be doing, or what I actually am going to do.


The only thing I know is that I will be in Ethiopia again from the 4th to the 29th of August....and it's really the only thing worth looking forward to....though the finances are also a source of worry.
All the rest....well, it's up to Him now. I've decided to give up!

On a brigther note, a big shout out to my adorable little pest of a brother who found his way to this blog and has been teasing me ever since. Yes Jean....I DO have a blog....and Yes.....it's pink. Deal with it....and get back to studying for your Alevels ejja.....

Went to hear Redelectrick yesterday for the first time...had been meaning to do that for ages but never actually got round to it....I must say I was pleasantly surprised....it's so nice to see Matt on stage, cos it's clearly where he belongs and he should be. So well done Matt, and keep going strong:)


enough for now.....I'm at the library so I guess I'll start writing...again...

baking frenzy

Friday is officially my blog posting day, since I usually have internet access during my 1-3 lecture and use it to indulge in my little blog here. I say usually because we don't actually have the lecture today, so I'm writing from home in the process of checking the oven to make sure my brownies don't get burnt. Because lately I've become cooking-obsessed all over again...and so I've been baking and cooking things to my heart's delight....much to my mother's shock when she sees the kitchen when I'm finished (but I always clean up ta....and plus she enjoys it cos it means she doesn't have to cook herself hehe).
So insomma, I'm making brownies and shortbread for after the 9pm mass tomorrow at uni....so who wants to taste, come to mass. hehe
I am sincerely regretting my past two manga posts....I think....I'll know for sure tomorrow evening. I hope that what I'm thinking won't actually occur....sigh.
Also, I've decided to stop worrying...about the future.....when it comes, it will come. (and I'm so cringing at the literal Maltese translation hehe)
that's it for now....some thesis-writing now I hope, and then tonight slumdog millionaire...can't wait.
over and out

Spit lessons

Nostalgia and sadness are now firmly put behind me, and I'm determined to make the most of what I have around me for now. It's amazing though, how you can be on an all time high one moment, and fall so low the next. 


Today had a marathon of spit, and we played one particular game with two packs of cards....it was soooo nervewrecking: one second you think you're getting somewhere, and your pile is slowly vanishing and  BAHM!! one move and you're back where you started all along, or even worse off behind. A lot like life I guess; fun at times, so frustrating at others, makes you mad at everyone else at some points, creates hope and anticipation when you think you're getting somewhere. And then joy, sorrow, defeat when it's all over, possibly even relief. And ultimately you will forget all about it, or you will just remember it but it will lose the significance it had originally. It's amazing what a game of spit can do to. haha. Just for the record, I lost....again.

Must stop philosophising...or however that's spelt. Getting along with thesis somehow....it's a slow process but taking shape, and if I give it some more effort I'll be write on track where I should be. The trouble is finding the concentration to do it....but somehow...I will:)

Nostalgia big time

I'm lying under my quilt trying to sleep just now...and a big big bout of nostalgia for the events of last year hits me like a wave. Not really sure why I'm thinking about this now, but I just can't help remember all the stupid, crazy, lovely things we did in the past couple of years, and sadly realise how much life has had to change since then. I have to confess I miss you (ie Mark and MGS) so so so so so so so (you get the point) much....and I'd give anything to rewind back to last year and laugh one good laugh like we used to.


:)

sigh....
However since we can't exactly turn back time (yet....was watching Smallville yesterday and they do that a lot...so you never know, muahaha)...I'm attaching these two videos taken last year, with shit quality and whatever, but which always make me laugh a lot. There are loads of others I could and would post, but I fear some form one students (u min ghandu jifimni, jifimni) might find their way to this blog and then panic will arise...hahaha...

First vid is from the picnic at Delimara last year, and Karl relating his almost abduction story in true Amaira fashion...the censored parts were obviously censored haha
video

This second vid is from Malc's last birthday and the surprise at SAC we had made him; it's what I call a typical us moment: weeks of plotting and worrying that Malc's gonna find out the surprise we were planning, only to have him completely and utterly oblivious to the very last minute, Mark complete with balloons and me and Matt laughing like two complete idiots. haha ...good times indeed!


video



And to end this semi-nostalgic, semi-pessimistic blog on a more optimistic, more anticipant note, I can only say this: though it's hard (and believe me it is bloody hard), don't dwell on the good times like it's a bad thing they're gone, but thank God for all the wonderful memories, keep them close to your heart and cherish them, for they have changed your life and will continue to do so forever. And anyway, the separation is only temporary....the laughs will be back...for sure.

:D

Much love,
Dan
