Although, we didn’t get the Summer temperatures, we got a lot of sunshine ( no complains, well except that driving east bound in the morning with the sun making it impossible to see). As I came out of the tutoring lab at my local community college, I totally felt in love. It was magnificent! The sky was a shade of gray. Trees had a fresh … Continue reading “Phir bhi Dil hai Pakistani”: heart is still Pakistani
Personally speaking, I don’t like Dollar Store ( a shop which sells everything for $1). First, hear me out and then you may agree with me why I don’t like Dollar Store. Everything they sell is a cheap quality, until it is a brand name. The toys are just to use one/two times. The plasticware is terrible: the lid will turn you into a gorilla … Continue reading Impressed!
Whenever people came back from Umrah or Hajj, no matter how many days they spend there, they all have the same response. All of them said that they want to go again! Now, how in the world do you want to travel thirty one hours or more all over again? How in the world do you want to pack again? How in the world do … Continue reading A Hajj Spell
Tired. Drained. Burnt. These are the feelings you get after losing a race. It started out as a non competing phenomenon. But ended as a race. I got a great start. I knew I would win. But I was lagging behind. It was not working out the way I expected. I lost. (On a side note, this race was for who gets their bag filled … Continue reading A Lost Race
Around three months ago, I took on a couple of challenges: – started tutoring Math, – became a supplemental instructor for college algebra – enrolled in Calculus – enrolled in a 200 Bio class At first, I was excited. I enjoyed the challenge. Juggling around with my time, making sure to be proactive. But as time went by, the “love” started to fade. It started … Continue reading I survived!
I am not a caffeine-ohlic. But when my friend told me that Dutch Bros are giving 9 stamps (11 stamps gives free drink), I was all for coffee. We had one hour to kill before the next class. We were prepared to wait in line. We were even prepared to walk and get our stamps. There was no man-made force that could stop us. We … Continue reading Nine Stamps
Millions of people were suppose to come to Oregon. Towns were suppose to be packed with cars for this celestial event. People told me that a two hours drive is taking six! Hotels in the path of totality were full all the way from New Port, Oregon on the Pacific coast to Wyoming which is far as we looked. Air bnb was full. One family … Continue reading The Great White Trash Solar Eclipse
Somethings are deceiving ( weather and miles)! It was a car-less day for me. This means I was forced to stay home-all day. But fate had other plans. I wanted to complete an errand and it was just 0.5 mile away. Piece of cake, right? My walk would take 25 minutes one way.I will have an excuse to wear my rainboots ( earlier it was … Continue reading 0.5 Mile
I have been a loyal customer of T-mobile since fifteen years, but the time has come to bid adieu. I was driving home on a state highway, when suddenly my car showed “Aladdin’s magic lamp” sign (later I found out it is called an “oil can” sign). I stopped as soon and safely as I could. With the hep of the car manual, kids and … Continue reading T-Mobile to Verizon
For some (or most) moms, getting the kids out in the summer is sometimes a challenge, and then herding them back is all together another task! My friend and I took the kids to a neighborhood park. It was time to go and of course our “bosses” were not ready. An ice cream truck came to our rescue. (Well, indirectly!). The ice cream did not … Continue reading Super Duper Cool
