New Read, Car and Roommate
Once again, it’s been a long time! I have only been back in Sharjah for a month (as my internet data package so nicely reminded me) but plenty has been going on, it feels a lot longer!
1) I finally got a car. A small, affordable-style car, but a car nonetheless. I haven’t received it yet, the dealers are supposed to call me later on in the week for me to go settle the registration fee and take the car. Until then, I’ve vowed not to take cabs for long distances, just to make it more rewarding (I have to take a cab to work).
2) My roommate arrives tonight! I tried to tidy up as much as I can, and hope that I don’t weird her out when she gets here. I’ve been sick (again) today, and very sniffly, and have no social energy at all. Blegh.
3) I’m starting a new book, which my friend and I have decided to read together and then discuss at regular intervals. This is not the kind of book I would usually pick up, but I think will be an interesting read.
