Tough Times

I'm going through a bit of a tough and stressful time right now, and I know some of my friends are, too--it seems that this isn't anyone's weekend. I just came across this post on Glitter Guide's "5 Things To Try This Weekend," and it seriously could not have come at a better time.

This post is dedicated to all of my beautiful friends.

I absolutely love learning Arabic. .انا باحب ادرس العربية Getting my Arabic keyboard cover and figuring out how to type may have been one of the more exciting things that has happened to me this semester.
