lots of stuff going on.

i was able to keep my word this time and not smoke sheesha for one full month... i know i'll eventually get back to it (i can't imagine summer without smoking sheesha), but it's good to know that i still have some determination left in me when i need it.

in the past few weeks i got like 4 different job offers and i didn't even graduate yet...i didn't apply anywhere either, i get these phone calls from a friend's friend or a distant relative's acquaintance telling me that as soon as i'm done with the graduation project i should go and work in their architectural firm. cool. but that doesn't change the fact that i'm still gonna be spending A LOT of time considering which career i'm going to get myself into first.

my brother's wedding is tonight. he wants me to give a small speech/toast in the wedding. i don't know what i'm gonna say. also the whole dancing bit i talked about before in my earlier posts is making me nervous.

my graduation project is turning into a nightmare. we were supposed to submit our pre-final phase a week ago, and i didn't. i'm really falling behind in the project. the professor gave me a final chance to submit it next saturday. that gives me thursday and friday to work on it. and as you already know i can't work today because it's my brother's wedding. so that leaves me tomorrow only to finish up my whole project. sort of an impossible task but i'll do my best.

ok gotta run.

Well, don't leave us hanging, what happened? Did you manage to pull through in time and submit it? Tell us about the wedding.

the wedding was great...everything was perfect. i danced my head off actually. i thought not dancing would ruin the spirit (i am the groom's brother afterall), and dancing would make me look like a complete fool. i decided to look like a fool and keep the joyful spirit in the place.

i did submit the pre-final phase of my project and i got a "c+", mainly because it was too late. i'm not disappointed in the grade at all, i think it's fair.

all that's left is the final part of the project, which is due on 7/7.

Well, congrats on the "no shisha" resolution.

Congratulations to your brother.

About the career dilemma we're all going through, several people (I rate as beyefhamo) advised me to do this:

As soon as your done, sit down clear head, grab a pencil and paper and put down on how you imagine your life to be (or more of how you want it to be) in 5 years (for example), write down every aspect you can think of.. then consider the alternatives that can get you there, then select your preferences.

Good Luck with the rest of your project! :)
