Documenting My Life | February

This is the fourth time I attempt to write this. I don't want it to be a negative post. Let me try one more time...

This February felt like a fancy cold drink in a hot summer day, one of those with a scoop of ice cream and an umbrella on top. When you really need something to quench that thirst. It's not your ideal drink but you still go for it. You drink it and realise it doesn't taste good, it gives you a painful brain freeze, but it does the job. It's over with all its bittersweetness.

The first half of February was all about seeing my friend prepare for her big day. I tried to be there every step of the way. As cheesy as this may sound, she looked like a princess from a fairytale. I'm sure she'll create her very own fairytale, she has always been original. Celebrating Mariam was the ice cream, the best part of the drink. The first half of the month also coincided with a beautifully unexpected visit with Ksenija visiting Oman. It was an extremely short visit and I can't wait till she's back again. Having Ksenija around was the umbrella, a little bit of something extra nice.

The second half of February was bittersweet. The fact that it coincided with the book fair makes it all better. For a big crowd to be sheltered under one roof with the company of books is an amazing feeling. You know that the majority have a deep connection with books. The book fair taught me that a book seller is not an easy job and it's not for everyone. A good book seller will give you a book for free if you didn't have the money because they they respect books and cherish the idea of reading. It's the right atmosphere for a book lover.

Let's forget all the hard times, the sleepless night and the overthinking.

March-ing till April.
