Graduation Day.

People have always talked to me about this day telling me that its the best thing ill ever have to go through in my life so far,by all means.. it was!
There was everyone in my class marching to there chair on the stage, we were looking at each other wondering how those three years pass by so freaking fast.
   We sang three songs:

  • The Best Day Of My Life. 
  • وبحتجلك وتحتجلي
  • Time Of Our Lives

The three songs made my eyes tear up and gave me goosebumps, and if Mariam Mazhar and Hussein Khattab are reading this.. this was one hell of a graduation speech. You made me laugh, cry, feel the love that i have for everyone on and off that stage and you made my heart ache for those days that are not coming back.

Those three years were by far the best three years of my life. I have loved every single one in my class like i've known them since forever.
Do you ever get a time when you feel like you love even the people you havent talked to at all?
Yeah that basically sums up my entire senior year!
I have laughed, cried, yelled, ate, drank, slept, had the time of my life with those people and i can never thank them enough.
This school has given me so much more than just knowledge, it has taught me how to be tough, how to stand up for myself and most importantly how to grow and im so thankful for that.
I know that i have made many mistakes and that i have collected some regrets over those three years but if i ever had the chance to go back i wouldnt change a thing because as cliche as it sounds; i am thankful for this little infinity that has given me so much to remember.
So my advice, if you're still in highschool; enjoy those days till the very end because you will be crying while remembering every small detail about them when you're up on that stage in this seat on your graduation day.

If you already graduated highschool; well , i dont have much to say to that except, try and hold on to those memories without letting them stop you from still savoring the rest of your life. Anytime can be your time if you just decide that it will. I know that i've still got some time ahead of me to take care of all the accomplishments i still have on my plate and hopefully i'll start getting them done right now!

My real life starts right now and yours starts whenever you decide, so go do that, not because you should, but because you'd love to!

Thank you for reading this.

My Summer!

I know i haven't been posting very often, but i promise you i've got a good excuse.
okay, so its not very good. Lucky me, this was a verrryyyy busy summer. I have been trying to get everything that is university-related done and i like to think that i have successfully got this done.
I also went to Europe which was extremely fun and exciting. I traveled with my whole family to Rome and from there we took a huge ship 'Costa Favolosa' to a couple of cities; Savona, Palma De Mallorca, Barcelona, Ibiza, Palermo and then we stopped in Rome Italy and stayed there for three days.
The cruise was the best experience ever. People were so friendly and nice. Everything was just so refreshing.
if anyone from Costa's reading this .. All the love in the world goes out to you for giving me the best summer ever.
After i got back from Europe i went to Sahel for a couple of days, that was fun too.
I spent most of it with my bestfriends just chilling around.
They were the most relaxing couple of days in summer so that was a good thing.
It was time to get back because of my graduation which was absolutely the best day of my life so far and i will hopefully have a post written just for that.
Two days after, i had to go to my university ( AUC ) for the FYE ( first year experience) which was awesome too. Thank you for all the peer leaders who helped us along the way.
And yesterday was officially my first day at university, i must say, i was panicking the whole time,but it was fun too, i mean it was a completely new experience for me.
I miss school so much but im just excited to know what comes along.
I'm gonna try to write a post about the first week too to let any of you who are absolutely afraid of that new stage know how it feels like.
Good Luck to everyone out there..

Feel free to comment or send me emails telling me about your summer.
I'd love to hear all about that!
And btw, you'll be hearing from me a lot more often because summer's over and we're all down to business.
you can always check my instagram too (farahemara) to see everything i talked about here but in pictures.
my email's : -- feel free to send me anything anytime, ill read it!!

Love Love Love,

What's The Best Thing That Anyone Has Ever Done For You?

I went out and asked a bunch of people this question thinking it would be very easy for them to pick out just one incident that really made them happy,one really nice thing that someone did for them; no matter how small or simple.Surprisingly, everyone's first answer was "I cant think of anything!"I have to admit, i was a little disappointed.. I know we tend to forget all the awesome stuff we receive from people, but i still think its extremely important to step back every once in a while and think about that. 

Here are some answers i got :
 One : I was going out one day with all my friends and there was this guy I've been having a crush on for like what feels forever. We were really close but he never told me how he felt then. His Mom showed up outside the place we were in to give him something and out of all people, he called me out to introduce me to her. That was the best feeling i have ever remember feeling.

 Two: So, it was last valentine's day when my husband promised to take me somewhere really special for the day. i found him taking me to the airport where we took the first plane to Paris. We spent the day there and got back right when it was over.

 Three: My Best friend got me a mini smurfs key chain; the ones you get with a McDonald's happy meal. 
That was the day we started a collection of them. 

Four: The day my dad took me to go pick up my favorite dog. That was the best thing i remember. 

Five: On my last birthday i was so pissed because all my best friends told me they were going to be busy doing other stuff. I returned home only to find them there with a surprise that they were sleeping over. Best. Girls. Ever. 

Six: I always go to the gym with my bestfriend, except for this day when i was really sick so i called to let her know i was taking the day off. She called me after a while and told me to open my front door. I found her there with my favorite Starbucks coffee with a note that says Get Well Soon. 

Seven: My Bestfriend got me a small frame that was a penguin's face wearing a graduation cap when she returned from the US. She told me to put our picture of us together when we graduate in it.
 Eight: The girl I've been in love with for the past three years got me a trophy that says 'For The Best You In The World'. She is the best of me. 

Nine: Aguero scored the winner in the dying minutes to win the English premier league on my 14th 2012. I'll remember that day till the end of times. 

Ten: My Boyfriend got me this box from Hallmark which looked like a toy. It was a box full of all my favorite chocolates. I looked closer, found a Tiffany&Co. box. I was soooo excited, i opened it, only to find a note that says 'I Love You'. He apologized for not getting the actual jewelry because it was a late order and many things went wrong. It was really enough all what he did. 30 minutes later he stood up and started looking for something in his pockets, he got out a Tiffany necklace just like the one i adored but lost some while ago. 

Eleven: I've been working in that place for only one week. It was my birthday and i was heading to my office like any other ordinary day, only to find a huge surprise; everyone in the office had baked some stuff and even brought some food from home, lots of balloons were beside my desk and they sang happy birthday in the happiest tone possible. I didn't even know they knew my birth date. 

Twelve: I was with an English friend of mine during Christmas on the outskirts of Manchester. It was about -11 degrees and everything was freezing. My friend's car stopped, and something happened to the key too so the engine wasn't working. We called some help but the only help we could find was willing to come only after two hours because it was night time and everything has closed. My friend isn't exactly the biggest fan of Egyptians. I started reading the car's manual looking for any solutions for about twenty minutes, and for those twenty minutes i was reading and my friend was letting me down and telling me that i wouldn't find anything that would help. By the end of the twenty minutes, i had gathered a decent amount of knowledge about a fuse that can start the engine, and it did.. My English friend got said some words to me that day about how much he actually thought an Egyptian like me, is so freaking brilliant. I will never forget those words. 

Thirteen: My best friend skipped my birthday because he has a very important match with his team that he had to show up to. Next day he brings me my favorite flowers ever and gives them to me halfway through English class, with everyone just sitting there thinking it was all cute. Actually that was pretty sweet.

Fourteen: My old teacher just called to tell me that she really wanted to see me before she migrates. I dont even know how she got my number.I havent seen her in four years :')  

That's it, I hoped you enjoyed reading all those very heart warming things just like i really hope you start appreciating everything that everyone does for you. And if you're one of those people who think that stuff is bullshit, try expressing your love and gratitude in other ways. Just please, try making people's life more of a blessing. 
Have A Good Night, Love Love Love
