Oh, cruel world? Why hast thou forsaken me? Alas, a cold in August, the peak of my summer is a cruel fate indeed!

I’m not trying to be vain, just rather bored, sicker than a dog, and thought I’d get some conversation going. For those of you who have been around a while, we know how it goes. For our new crowd, this is a place to chat about anything really. The board rules do still apply, but off topicness is to be expected.

So, getting the ball rolling, fall plans anyone? For my southern hemisphere gang, spring plans? Schooling? Working? Taking a break from it all? On the home front here, relatively unexciting. Looking at a big move in September, new town, new people, new opportunities. I’m feeling it’s time for change.

Weather here has been strange here too, beautifully hot and sunny one day, massive thunderstorms the next, now we’re into the weather that just drags. Not warm, not hot, damp, but not rainy. Just kind of boring.

While I am moving in September, I almost wish I was going back to school, I feel the educational itch.

Happy Woman’s Day! I’m just rolling with the punches down here. Summer’s on the way; the rain’s started and the birds are glaring at cats. Glad I got the friday off (this week has been packed!) Everyone’s cancelling plans as they usually do around this time of year and family’s starting to take notice of the world again. You know what I love about weekends? I can lie in bed and suck on Wilsons Toffies and post until I’m blue in the face. Ahhhh, the year has finally started for me!

I love Centre Parcs! I went years ago to the Lake District one, it was brilliant! Which one are you going to?

The weather in my country doesn’t really matter, as it’s sunny and fine without rain—while i’m celebrating this joyful, yearly event—Eid!
Fireworks lit, big feast—food, drinks, and delicious cakes!—in every house and mosque, everyone forgiving each other, adults gave money to the youngsters, families homecoming and many more…

Yeah, Erin, who would not? I, myself, have waited for this day for a long time…
I guess you’ll feel similar atmosphere as you’re enjoying Christmas or Thanksgiving :)

Ha. Summer. Sure it is hot and everything but this year my family has no money to open the pool or bring me anywhere. So I’m stuck here in Milan while all of my friends are enjoying their holidays.

Of course if I have a concert somewhere then money magically appears.

Christmas won’t be much better in fact its the day I dread the most in the whole year. Sure its my birthday but I spend it at my grandmother’s house where all my cousins are around their late 30s and all my second cousins are younger than 10, so I hide in the computer room for 6 hours while I wait for my parents to finish playing their stupid Christmas games with the rest of the family.

Oh yes, apart from my close parents, my cousins, my uncles and my grandma have no idea its my birthday.
Happy Christmas.

Christmas holds nearly nothing for me and we don’t do Thanksgiving. Its New Years I look forward to. Its on that day, you see, that very suddenly nothing happens. Every year, everyone expects something to change but all that really changes is the amount of wrinkles on faces. But that’s not the main reason. I love New Years because its the only night when I can have a whole glass of wine to myself. It sets me apart from cousins and friends. I can just sit there, grinning at everone else older than me who can’t actually have any.
But I pay for it the rest of the year.

For Christmas and Thanksgiving, I always go to New York to visit family. Though they’re annual events, I always look forward to the trip.

I hate festivities. Its just a way for my father to bring me to his side of the family, as if I didn’t make it clear enough I hate it.

What’s even funnier, is that when my brother and sister were my age, they also hated going there.
What are the odds, Dad?.

Would your opinion change if you celebrated festivities on your own?

At least I’d be at my house. I’d have better things to do than stay on a computer for six hours straight.

Not even staying on here 6 hours straight is better? :P
