    It’s the perfect opportunity!
    I’m already brainstorming ideas!

    But I can’t come…why? because I’ve got a class…yes, you heard me right, a class during iftar! of which I can only take a half hour brake from to break the fast..

    This. Truly. Sucks =(

    I would have loved to participate with some love poems.. but I have promised my significant other not to ever make a public display of them, since they mean a lot for both of us.. don’t know if I should..

    P.S. I will try to make it.. but I’m not very good with directions in Doha.. is that going to be inside education city?

    • mimizwords said,

      I am sure you are a great poet and your significant other would love it if you read something … she might be forgetful sometimes but she never forgot about you .. you know how two people become one

      and yes it will be in one of QF buildings, your significant other will show you the way as she always does 😉

  7. homme du Qatar said,

    yeah.. but I wont break a promise I made to her like I want her not to break the promise she made to me.. that’s all..

    she can be forgetfull.. but I hope not her promise to me.. like my promise to her..

    great.. I still use google maps to get to education city…!

    • I CARE said,

      a freshman?

      forget google maps.. it’s one of the villas across the street from LAS.

      after taking that U-turn in front of VCU, take a right. that’s it !

  8. homme du Qatar said,

    no I’m fine thanks.. just like you said.. google maps only get updated every 90 mins.. in doha the roads change much fast than that.. I’ll find it.. thanks buddy..
