29

It’s quarter to life
A letter a picture and tomorrow

I’m 29 tomorrow. I know! I don’t look a day over 28 and a half!
My mama is coming soon …
I will be engaged soon … Yes! Engaged! Me!!!
I know where I’ll be early Spring. You guessed it ...
And I move to my new job early Summer

Soon nothing will be the same …
Life does surprise you when you least expect it …
It’s true …

I'm so stressed out right now and seem unable to hold a thought
So excited right now about all the changes around me
So scared still .. Good scared though ...

We'll see what happens ...

Today i go to bed, my good old bed,
I wake up to my New York
walk to my lab, talk to my boss,
get lunch at the same place
have a coffee break with Mia
Maybe see Mazen, Wassim or Tina ..
Design an experiment with Corina ..
fill out some forms, send some emails out ...
Write ...

Most of all start saying goodbye
little by little
every day ...
And start enjoying every moment left
In this place i called home for so many years
And in my cozy little life here ...
And i can't wait for what's next!

mabrouk for the engagement!!he is a lucky man.
sorry for the move! NY will miss you...
changes are hard... even if they are good!! we get so used to the equilibrium we call routine, the break is always stressful.... but it will pass! best wishes! wherever you end up being!

Mirvat!

Where are you off to?

I almost hope that you may actually be moving here to Dubai.

But I think it's back to Leb for you?

Whatever it is, I hope it all gets better for you than it already is.

XOXO wo mabrouk!

Happy Birthday my dearest mirvat... I am so glad your mom is coming too. you needed that... now.

Congratulations also of your engagement :) I am so happy for you. and yes he is a very lucky man that is for sure.
Where are you moving? leb? That would be great if you could. but please do tell more, do tell more.
