Happy New Year 2008!

So there is nearly 24 hours before we welcome 2008 into our lives, and I for one am dying for a new year. 2007 has to be one of the worst I’ve ever been through but at the same time, I’m thankful for this year in so many years.I’m happy that 2007 has wizzed by and hopefully that is a good sign that 2008 will be a better year. I have many plans and goals that I wish to achieve in 2008, I’m excited, nervous, scared, hopeful yet I can’t wait to see how my life will plan out.

So, to welcome 2008 (which hopefully will be a good year), I made a little quick change to my blog to welcome ‘New Beginnings’, with the header featuring Liv Tyler and a very emotional quote “Maybe our mistakes are what make our fate. Without them, what would shape our lives? Perhaps if we never veered off course, we wouldn’t fall in love or be who we are. After all, seasons change. So do cities. People come into your life and people go. But it’s comforting to know the ones you love are always in your heart” . I do believe that my past has made me who I am today and made me learn from past experiences to ensure that my next steps are taken the new found wisdom based on past events.

My resolutions are:
01. Graduate
02. Play guitar
03. Keep in touch with friends all over the world more
04. Follow my heart and do what I’ve always planned to do
05. Head to Paris for some relaxation time
06. Start taking my medication properly
07. Brush up on my Arabic & French
08. Visit Dubai for the summer
09. Save $$
10. Never let good for nothin’ guys into my life- ANYMORE!
11. Buy as many gadgets as I can
12. Be Happy

Tomorrow will be a crazy day, I’m going to the salon to do my hair, then need to go buy some last minute accessories for my outfit, then heading to a french restaurant for dinner then to a party in a huge hotel nearby and I’m getting majorly dressed up to say goodbye to the year from hell.

I wish everybody a great 2008 filled with joy, happiness & lots of love. So readers, what will you be doing 24 hrs from now? Do you have any resolutions? and do you plan on sticking to them?

McDonald’s Canada Card: Free Medium Fries or Drink

McDonald’s Canada Card: Free Medium fries or Drink

Between November 26-December 30, 2007, load or re-load a McDonald’s Card with $10 or more and you will receive a coupon for free medium fries or a free medium Coca-Cola.

Although I don’t particularly agree with their “give the gift of smiles” slogan, I think the free medium fries is a good deal considering you have to do nothing but load a McDonald’s Card with $10 then use it to pay!

May their souls rest in Peace. Ameen.

It’s never going to get easier. There is never going to be a ‘Death for Dummies’ book. There is never going to be an escape plan to pain because no matter how much I try no matter how much I cry my life is never going to go back to the way it used to be, because I know I can’t just shut the door and hope everything disappears. I know that I can’t stop myself from hoping that you will one day walk in the front door and smile as if nothing happened. I know that there will be days that it will be hard to get out of bed and look people in the eye and lie when they ask how I am. I know that its going to hurt for the rest of my life and that I will always cry, but I also know that you’re in heaven now and your away from all of the pain and everything is better for you now. We attach ourselves so strongly to people that when they’re gone, a part of us is gone too.

You left before I had a chance to say goodbye, but that’s the way life usually is–it just passes you by. But you can’t hold on to regrets and you can’t look back, so I’ll just be thankful for the times that I had with you.
