2011 came ...

Happy new year everyone, I hope this year will be full of happiness, joy , and health to all of you, and for my Iraqi friends, I wish this year we can live in peace, may the bloodshed stop and we can all participate in rebuilding our beloved country , may the reunion we've been waiting for can be achieved this year, and our families, relatives and friends come back to Iraq . let's hope for a better tomorrow …
We celebrated the new year's evening in my dad uncle's house where we had a nice family meeting, with lots of food, deserts, we exchanged gifts , jokes, and spent such a lovely time together, but came home at 10 o'clock as it is not safe to leave in a late time..
my laptop's recharger was damaged and it took me a while to find another one , that's why I couldn't publish lately ..
I was so busy with college and exams, and I was feeling tension because the college is in mess, many exams each day, sometimes they demand us to study subjects they didn't explain, they are very harsh ..
my friend says "at last we'll all graduate and become engineers, it doesn't matter first or second turn, we'll all be staying home engineers and can't find jobs" I am trying to convince myself with this opinion (except the jobs part) ,I'll just do what I can, no matter what will be the results ..
about two days ago, I couldn't reach college because of the closed roads, and I missed the laboratory experiment, I asked If I can do it in another day he said " if the professor allows you to do it in another time then do it, but I can't give you my approval otherwise, because I am not responsible of your personal circumstances " just like if I closed all the roads of mosul !! the professors didn't allow me to do it, each time he'd say come in another time, I kept going over and over till the day before my exam, I asked a girl to explain it for me, but It's hard to imagine what's going on without making It ..
I had my practical exams, on the first one, we choose numbers and each No. carry a different experiment , well, I had kind of bad luck, I got the no. of the only experiment I missed!!! I asked the professors to change it, but he said " no its your luck", I didn't do well..
In the second practical exam , I did well .. on the third exam I didn't , my computer didn't work, and they didn't give me extra time, the exam is only 30 minutes and the professors restarted my slow computer three times, and brought another mouse.
And in the programming lab. No one could answer the question !!
Now, we're having our mid-year holiday which last for 2 weeks, but our exams will be after the holiday !! it's crazy, because of the Shiite's ceremony they postponed our exams, I made a schedule and I am studying in my holiday and waking up at 6:45 am !! what a great holiday!
We need a holiday after this" holiday "! … I am doing my best, I study till 11 pm, just take a short nap, and my rests are about 5 minutes only ..
Just like every year I am going to spend my birthday studying!! But inshallah after my exams, I'll make a birthday party ..
Last week, I went to my best friend's birthday and we had fun, I love parties :D
And today , we we had dinner in a nice restaurant, we spent lovely time ..
I've been receiving many e-mails and comments from my dear readers asking about aunt rose, she's doing well, her husband took the PHD, and her daughters are doing excellent in school, my grandparents visited her recently and spent a lovely time in Dubai ..
I pray one day my aunt, and all of our other relatives come back to Iraq and we'll get together again just like the old days before the war, I didn't see her for six years..

nice to see you back on the blog, was really worried about you. Hope this semester goes better than the last. Your professors sound really "old school." with no appreciation for what you go through just to get to school every day. Joanna in Walpole, NH
