Good day and welcome back to my humble blog.
Yes, I have realised that today is the 31st of March. This is the first and last post for this month. For the sake of not letting one whole month fly by without a post, I decided to make sure to have something typed up and served for this month and to explain a little about my disappearance.
As I have mentioned in my previous post in February, I am a busy man. I have many commitments in school and life here and I can’t afford to forgo these commitments for the sake of this blog. I have set my priorities, and my blog isn’t something that will directly determine my future, such as whether I will be entering the university of my choice, or whether I’ll be getting better grades. From now on, if my life here has become just too busy, you will have to look forward to at least one post for that month. Any less than that would mean something very unusual has happened to me, such as a serious illness, a prolonged breakdown of all internet services in Egypt, etc.
I am pleased to announce that I could now add a new country to the list of countries I have visited over in my lifetime: CYPRUS! Yes, I have mentioned this in my previous post, and I have so much to tell you all about how this trip went. It was a significant achievement in my life, because it was also the first time I have ever undertaken a school trip which involved travelling abroad. I have photos, a video and even made a special song to memorialise the whole experience for the trip, which hopefully, In-Sha-Allah, will be shown in a special post in the coming days.
In addition to that, before the week of the Cyprus trip, my whole family went to Antalya, Turkey for a short but amazing holiday. There I took far more photos than in Cyprus (I wasn’t able to use my phone in Cyprus to take photos as much). I will also explain the whole trip in another upcoming post which I will post in a few days.
I have to work much harder to catch up with all the time I had been away. Yes, the two travel events made it tough to update anything but the school that came after the holiday and trips is worse. Here is a list of all the things I must complete by the end of April which should be in my blog:
- The trip in Antalya, with explanation of what I did there and lots of photos
- The expedition and camping trip in Cyprus, what happened to my friends and I and photos
- My newfound interest in song-writing and singing, introducing my YouTube channel
- My self-sung parody “ALL ABOUT THAT PACE”
- My university plans – what do I want to study? Where? Why?
- Continuation of My Fav Language Series which I have almost forgotten
- Updates on my school life and the IB programme
- Most importantly, next month, I will be travelling again as a family, this time to beautiful Amsterdam! The trip will be for 5 days 4 nights, touring the city and visiting tulip gardens. More details about this in the near future, when the time is closer to the trip itself.
Please, please, please, I really need encouragement from you all as readers because, frankly speaking, you’re the fuel for my motivation. I want to continue writing but I need reminders and pestering from you guys so that I could meet my goals in blogging. If you notice that I am not keeping up to my promises and plans, please comment, personal message, give a shoutout through social media, whatever, I don’t mind. I will be fully appreactive of any response I get from those who come by here.
Starting the end of this week spring break will start at my school, so I will of course devote as much free time as possible with making updates on my blog and to the other blog in Blogger, which I have not given enough attention to. In addition, I will try to be more active among the WordPress community by reading more other people’s blogs, blogs of people I subscribe to, liking blogs, reblogging, updating any outdated info and other sort of things bloggers are supposed to do. Until then, I have to focus on the last few days of Arbeit which I can’t avoid. Thank you for reading!
