Brabo alayna

Babes, I want to hug every year abroader and tell them their feelings are valid.

I just want to hug them all
but I can’t

I’ve been off sick  alot these first two and a half months. But as of this Monday lunchtime we’ve all made it through midterms! and I’ve thanked my mentor and advisor and classmates – in person as well as anonymously on the internet – for all the encouragement and support I’m cheesily  grateful for.  OH NO I AM TURNING INTO A YEAR ABROAD BLOGGER.

Here are a few Arabic miscommunications we’ve had since arriving:

mithaliy – perfectionist
mithliy – homosexual

nabaha – to wake up
nabaHa – to bark like a dog

SabaHa – to wake up
safaHa – to spill (blood), to shed (blood), to fornicate, to whore

qussay – name of my friend
kussay – my p****

Slightly more than half my class slightly more than a quarter through our year (all of whom got the ‘black, white and burgundy’ memo)

I asked permission for these photos to go on the blog. “Go for it, I’ll still be pretty anonymous“, said one. “I’ll be famous!!” said another, separately.

USUAL SERVICE OF BLOG UNRELATED TO MY YEAR ABROAD WILL BE RESUMED
