These past few days have been a blur of moving-in, buying books, heat and “hurricanes” and a very familiar walk up and down Comm Ave =P.
Moving-in to Myles in the blazing heat(in Ramadan): Two huge suitcases, and two equally huge storage boxes. It took me a couple of hours to unpack and then sometime to relax and catch my breath. Seyhr came straight from the airport later on in the day :). We grabbed Iftar, and then went to buy fans and lamps etc. from Bed, bath and beyond. Crispy Crepes was a refreshing end to one hectic day…
A day to class and there was so much to do: Barnes and Noble, visits to the bank, Mugar and back. Ran into a lot of old faces.
First day of classes. Woke up early, miraculously and talked to ami and sis for some minutes. Got dressed up and took the bus to work. It was interesting to get back in routine and though my feet hurt from all the walking in the heat, it was still nice. My first class was GE356: Third World Development, the class I was looking forward to most. The prof is cool, and it’s one class I imagine never to get bored in. The only problem is that it’s really challenging, and strongly discouraged for Sophomores.
My next class was International Organizations and Governance. Another class I think I’ll love…
Shopping for rainboots on Newbury. Selling ISBU tickets. Dinner with Shayaan and Seyhr.
Arabic class, work, philosophy class…This is the only semester I’m excited about all my courses and Insha’Allah I hope to keep the enthusiasm up :)…
Met Minah and her mom!! Catching up with Wafaa
Movie in Metcalf Hall. U-burger. Clockwork Angel.
I don’t know what’s going on outside my BU bubble, and maybe I don’t want to know either. I took a glance at dawn.com yesterday, and surprise surprise, no good news. Maybe ignorance is bliss, and maybe ostriches have it better.
