Pretty uneventful day except for 3 things - The Trifecta: 1. Took a shower which I do daily in case there are any doubts. In my half awake state, I brought a clean shirt and socks instead of underwear into the bathroom. After the shower, I went to grab the shirt of our washing machine.

As a foreign graduate, you must make yourself stick out at all costs. The goal is to get residency interviews.
The last night on the island was a complete panic. I took a series of 1-hour naps since I was pressed for time.

The places were small one bedrooms where the living room was also the kitchen. But being alone, I really did not need much space. The price was $600/month which was only $50 more per month than what I was currentl ...Read more ›
I dreaded the day my wife and kid were going to leave the island. We had a birthday party my daughter at a local restaurant that served Middle Eastern food on Saturday. It was mainly all students in my school and some University staff. The closest person to my daughter’s age was a 12 year old that was one of the the staff member's sister. It was fun and sad, knowing this was the next to last day with Hibah ...Read more ›
