Back to Reality

So guess where I am?

INDIA. Or is it Indi-YEAAAAHHH. No. Let's keep it to India.

So as soon as I land my skin goes through a major transformation. From beautiful {ps - thank you, God, for my nice skin} to greasy in about 30 seconds.

Beofre immigration we had to get our ear temperature checked as screening for swine flu. Anyone who has a fever gets transported immediately to the hospital for quarantine. Fun stuff, I tell ya.

When I got home I found out my AC was broken. I'd say it's about 90 degrees. And my room faces the sun all day long. My room is the hottest room in the house. Luckily my multi-talented driver who I can no longer live without fixed it. I feel like giving him $300 for fun. If I had money to throw around like that I would.

Oh and I went to school today. Aww my first day back. My sister took a picture of me and everything. Class was cancelled. We went to rotations. then class again, which was cancelled. I basically sat around for 2 hours drenched in sweat.

Then I come to school to find out that I'm so so behind in studying. I'm freaking out kind of because this is the most important year in the world for me. Whatevs. Better start soon.

I am in slight jetlag and am trying to stay awake until at least 8 pm. Jetlag makes me super hungry. So I had pasta at 6 this morning. Popsicle. Bagel that my friend told me to eat or else her maid would be upset if she didn't eat. Bagels are a delicacy and not found here.

But I've had a great great day. Why?? Because I had a popsicle this morning on the way to school. :)

Why am I still here?? peace out.

Alhamdulillah I'm glad you made it "home" safe. I can't believe you're starting your last year. Times flies so fast.

welcome back home! that's very warm!! i don't know if i can ever stand the heat without giving out lol. last time i went back to malaysia, i whined like a total bitch that i felt like slapping myself on the face and suture my mouth shut. or something. heat sure makes people do bad stuff, ya know, like stripping.

HAHAHAHAHA popsicles are awesome. Especially fudgesicles. I don't know why I love them, but I do. I really really do.

Glad you're back safely. We don't have AC here but it's not that hot in our house... we use a little fan occasionally. Now it's winter we just bought a little heater and I have made it my new best friend.
I love that you thanked God for your nice skin. I would if I had nice skin... but I would rather write God a note that said "Hello. My relatives have lived in a hot land for about 200years now (probably a lot less than that actually..) and I was wondering why we still have pasty skin that's made for cold climates. Can't you tweak it a bit? I just married an Arab so my baby has nice brown eyes and slightly yellow skin but she's still pretty pasty.. what's with that? I love lots of your other work though. Love, Sarah."

And I don't think there's ANYTHING wrong with iceblocks for breakfast (that's aussie for popsicle). You go for it. Maybe have 2.
