Birthdays mean nothing to me.
It just means that I have become older .. but never wiser.
Once silly, always silly.

In other matters, it has been pouring here. The sun hasn't come out for a few day and that naturally dampens my spirits. Back home in Bahrain, clouds in the sky and a little drizzle used to charge me and add a sparkle to my life. Sigh! Not any more!

I don't think I can bear the snow and cold weather for another winter. I don't think I can continue to be so homesick anymore. When I talk to people back home and tell them how much I miss Bahrain, they hiss back at me صلى على النبي!!

It sounds like I am committing high treason by saying that Bahrain is where my heart, soul and life is - despite everything - from the childish politics to the Surreal Life!

My life here in Canada wasn't a total waste. I discovered new things about myself. I mean for someone who never had to make tea or coffee for herself in her entire life - I am now down to cleaning toilets.

Now that is an achievement!
