Home sick


Shukri came and left like a breeze! we had a blast and i loved having her here but it all came to a sudden end and it made me remember that there is no place like home. Its official am homesick i miss everything.

i miss my family

i miss my mums cooking

i miss my crazy friends

i miss just been around people who know me


I was having a fantastic time till shukri reminded me what i was missing! Oh and my teacher is a slave driver, she had me purchase a book for grammar,a book for verbs ( i have hit the past and command) a book for writing short stories.


Short stories, my jaw dropped i even asked her if she was joking i haven't even completed level one yet!!!!

Indeed, being homesick is a most awful feeling.

Fret not....Allah is with you, and you are in the thoughts and prayers of all of those who love you.

It's only a small matter of time, and you shall all be reunited. That aside, enjoy every last second you are there, for blessed opportunties as yours are very much few and far between.

Aw....it was bound to happen, NM. Of course you will miss your family and friends and familiar surroundings! Something massive would be amiss if you didn't!

You've already been there a couple of months, you'll be back in the bossom of your loved ones before long I'A.

We expect you to be fluent, so get on with it, ey?

Oh, poor you! NM, homesickness sucks but think of the difficult language you're learning. Before you know it, you'll be close to all things familiar and near your family. You'll also come back to ignoramus Westerners who can't even command their native language much less entertain a new one. Cheer up and keep blogging! Some of us are visiting Egypt vicariously through your posts.

Wow i didn't realise i sounded so suicidal my phone hasn't stopped ringing since:)

very natural so i hear and since i didn't shed a tear when i left i guess this balance out the sepculations that i am made of stern stuff.

thanks you guys for the comments and the text and the calls, a girl is greatful to know that when things get a little gloomy your all there to the fan the flame.

Anyho there is a lot going on in the flat which means its too crazy to even contemplate homesickness and if smelly blogger would let me sign into my OWN account i would tell all!

But Alas i shall re-count the current tails at flat 1A very soon inshallah but its safe to say that Arabic, an egptian male and a change of address are all part of the tail :)
