Days of My Life

Talk about daily life of a teenage girl in Iraq, and days of suffering and success. My nick name will be Sunshine..

Tuesday, January 27, 2009


I finished my exams last Wednesday; the teachers brought very hard questions, but did fine. I was planning to have 2 lectures everyday during the midyear holiday, but my grandparents, and everyone urged me to take a break, relax and spend the holiday in Baghdad, after I thought about it, I decided to take their advice, and have a break, I rally deserve one after 9 months of continuous studying so that I don't get bored later.
So in the first day of my holiday I traveled to Baghdad, the road was really good except the two hours we stopped before we reach Baghdad because of the crowded road as the cars must be inspected before we reach Baghdad gate..
I am having a pleasant time here, Baghdad is much safer than mosul, we can go out, wear what we love without fear, walk and enjoy the warm weather, I love Baghdad and I wish I can stay here forever!
I may not be able to write often, I have very limited spare time, each day we visit relatives or go shopping so I don't use the computer very often these days ..i feel extremely happy that I'll celebrate my 17th birthday In Baghdad, I feel so excited.
I can't wait till I write a new post, I have interesting things to tell you about..
With love

I pray for peace for you, your family and country. May God continue to bless you and cover you with his blanket of love and mercy.
I'm glad I found your blog. All of the Iraqi and Iranian people I have met here in the States have always been friendly. I wish more people knew the kindness in your hearts and our Nations could be truly united in friendship. Hopefuly our new President will help bring peace for all.

Please keep sharing your life, I can tell your light is strong and bright. God has a great purpose for you.

Sincerely, Paul

Happy Birthday Sunshine!!!
I am happy to know that you are enjoying your visit to baghdad. You deserve to have a vacation. I am glad that you decided to take grand mother's advice and rest for a few days.

I hope Mama is visiting Baghdad with you. Mama needs a few days away from Mosul and a visit with her mother and father.

I hope you and Mama enjoy your vacation.

Happy Birthday! I'm glad you are taking a rest and visiting Baghdad. It must be nice to feel safer than you have in a long time, but still be careful. Are you still to young to vote next week? Over here you need to be 18 and I don't know about Iraq. I hope some good people will win this time and maybe things can get much better. I still think you should be Prime Minister some day. I have a feeling that whatever you want enough to work really hard to obtain is within your reach. Such a brave, strong, and smart young lady you are.

Happy Birth Day!!! have you checked out Karada yet? We spent like 3 Mil on that area to open up the shops. I'm glad you are in a safer place. Please take lots of pictures! I'd like to see how the neighborhoods are looking now. As always, I will pray for your safety.
