Two posts in one go, woohoo!

Thank you to all of you who have wished me all the best during my difficult Master's dissertation times! I can gladly say that I have now graduated and that this chapter is forever closed, alhamdulilah :-) Alhamdulilah again just because I really truly mean it!

I am so anti virus right now

Virus is the new word in my daily vocabulary. Having learned about it first in Science lessons and then in IT, I went on to further teach this to my students. I thought I was all virus'd out when I somehow mysteriously en counted a Trojan virus on my USB stick. Turns out that it somehow transferred from my school PC but luckily for me, my home anti virus software readily identified and attacked it. Computer viruses all out, I then encountered the scientific virus when members of my family were recently infected by it. Of course, spending a couple of days with them during my holidays last week would lead to me catching it too and oh boy, did I suffer or what. One and half days off work and dying of utter boredom and sickness I am oh so virus'd out.

Having just about recovered from a strong bout of virus attack, the one single piece of advice I can share is: eat your oranges, or drink the juice if that's what you're into. As soon as the sour sweet juices hits the back of the throat and induces a tingling feeling, you can be sure that you're well on your way to recovery, yessir, I know.

Thought of the day [2]

The lessons are usually not all that obvious. Yet they are there if you will think to take a look. The lessons are there in every moment, in every dilemma, in every frustration and every joy. They are there in every sadness, every victory, every discomfort and every pleasure.


Wave in the air!

Salaam everyone

What can I say, it's been a while. While I may not have logged on and typed more words (of utter randomness) I have been coming back to keep myself updated with all that is going on in your lives. What's kept me from logging on? Hmm, hard to say really. This period of time that has passed has been one of speed full of exciting-ness and sheer unknowing-ness. Forgive me for my lack of words today.

In a summary then:

  1. Blogging is cool, fun and a great 'me time' place
  2. Working is fantastic mashaAllah, just wish it was full time! This past term has been another hectic one but I am so proud of all the girls and the hard work that they have put in :-)
  3. The job hunting process returns! And it is one hell of a pooper. Really stinks. I have an interview on Wednesday and have been planning stuff for it since yesterday. Allah only knows what is in store for me. More details to follow, naturally :-) Keep me in your duas please!
  4. Another *counts on fingers* 5-6 months left before the hubs and I fly the nest, his nest, rather. Living with the in-laws must come to a natural end and inshaAllah we will leave amicably with their blessings.
  5. I graduate in 2 weeks time! Yeah that's right, I've offically earned my Masters (with Merit!). Hoorah! lol

So, there you have it. A snippet into the life of a mint.fresh.muslim.

Until next time, ciao amigos!
