No to Jealousy

I am quite new on social media when it comes to image-sharing. I’ve had a Tumblr blog, Instagram and Facebook for ages, but I haven’t really been active when it comes to sharing photos of my own life. Recently this changed when I started this blog last September. I just felt comfortable sharing some aspects…

Goodbye, Cairo University

Yesterday, Tuesday the 23rd of April, I attended the very last lectures of my undergraduate university studies. The realization that four entire years have passed with the same routine, lectures, study, exams, summer, go back and repeat is just a bit overwhelming. I have to admit that there have been days that I have wished…

When it’s all too much

What I learned from university in Egypt

Four years of university are slowly coming to an end. At the beginning of fourth year, reading my peers’ Facebook posts praising the faculty and practically writing poetry on their love towards it made me feel almost irritated. I didn’t feel like that at all. Quite the opposite. I felt happy to finally leave the…

A night full of poetry

I was very passionate about all the extra work and spent hours after school planning, working on or executing some new project. Towards…

A day in my life

Welcome back! Today you’ll be following me through a day as a busy uni student+mother! This day is a bit different though. My husband is traveling and thus I’m staying over at my mother-in-law’s so that I’m not alone all day. Things look slightly different when I’m home, but this is also a piece of…
