What's my day like?
Today, I'll give you a glimpse of how it is living my life.
Thursday, 15th of June, 2017
I woke up at 9 am to my mom's voice saying (or declaring, rather), "You guys better get up, your uncle's coming over today..." I kinda felt sleepy, because I slept at 1 am last night (morning?), so I thought of getting some more shut-eye. Just a few minutes.
Sadly, my plan didn't really work out, because a few seconds later, my older sister practically forced me to get up. So I finally (hesitantly) left the comfort of my bed, and got ready. My Dad already left to meet up with my Uncle (My Dad's cousin), because they had some car stuff to do, ya know, not that I care but haha! After breakfast, my Mom wanted to clean the house, which everyone does when they have people coming over. Because why clean when you have no visitors?!?
While my mom started to vacuum the entire living room, my sisters and I stayed in our bedroom — but we didn't clean there because duh, no one would like, enter our bedroom, right? So, on a normal day, I would start studying by this time, but I feel like today was gonna be a lazy day, because that's what my Thursdays were always like. My sisters and I love watching vlogs, so guess how we spent the next twenty minutes?
Also, for the past few weeks, my phone started having problems because it kept on restarting for some reason. Yesterday especially, it started restarting every like twenty seconds. Yes, twenty seconds! I can barely use it! I already thought of performing a factory reset/ hard reset on it, but I was just too lazy to do it earlier but, today is the day. One of my sisters and I attempted to do it (and failed a thousand times idk why!) and finally succeeded by the I don't know, tenth try? I suck at stuff like this, okay haha. After that, my phone began working faster, and better. *Credits to my older sister for saving my phone (I was forced to type that).
My Dad came back, without my uncle — who wasn't coming over anymore. At least the house is clean now! Thank you Mother dear! We watched our favorite TV shows together (while I did all the stuff needed in my phone, because it kinda is like a new phone, but with all the back up data). We ate lunch — it was Adobo, by the way, (If you don't know what Adobo is, search it up! It's a popular, tasty Filipino dish). Oh, and also, I learned that our Armenian neighbors' sons were coming back today (they came here for a vacation but left last month), Did you know that Armenia has the best apricots? Hmm... yes, they do. Sadly, the boys weren't able to bring any apricots with them because it isn't apricot season yet. Aw. Anyway, I'm really happy that they're back, because although they don't speak good English at all, we still get to have fun together., along with my sisters, and the last time they were here, my family was super busy so we didn't get to hang out with them that much.
One of our relatives in Al Ain had a flight to the Philippines on the 23rd, so my Dad told my sisters and me to write a letter for our grandma, so we could send it along with our relative who was leaving, and in turn, she would hand it to our grandma. Okay, that was really confusing, I hope you get what I just wrote! So we wrote a letter and my mom and dad left to send it. As I mentioned before, my sisters and I really love watching vlogs so guess how we spent the next hour again? Pff I can't believe how much time I wasted today. I was also supposed to iron my clothes for church tomorrow, but luckily, I already did that yesterday. *insert happy dance*
Later, our neighbors' sons finally arrived. Maybe I'll talk to them tomorrow. I'm pretty sure they're still exhausted from their flight. Also, we found out some bad news — one of my childhood friend's dad had passed away yesterday. The news really tore me apart and I can't imagine the pain my friends are going through right now. I can only pray and hope that they get all the comfort they need.
Now, it's 7 pm, and all that's left for the day is Dinner, getting ready for bed of course, not forgetting to set the alarm for church tomorrow, and maybe a few more other interesting things! My mom and dad hasn't come back yet, and I bet they passed by a friend's house (I think).
That's it for today! I hope you forgive me for talking (or writing) too much! I shall end it here. Bye! x
