On September 13th, 2005 at 3:00 p.m. I landed in Kuwait International Airport. Its been one year since. Well, I have to say its been a very eventful experience for me. When I first got here, I hated every second of my life. I hated the lifestyle, the people, the air I breath, the whole country. First 5 or 6 months were a disaster; I had 2 or 3 friends and didnt know where to go and what to do with my time. It was one of those long depression phases. I was always homesick for Lebanon and my friends and just wanted to go back; because of that I focused completely on my job and forgot completely about my social life, although did manage some fun outings with those few friends. But month after month, things got better as I got more involved with the country and the way of life especially after getting my driver's license and car.
The past several months have been amazing. Suddenly, out of nowhere, I started meeting all kinds of people and soon had some very close friends. That helped BIG time with my residence in Kuwait. Partying, going out, planning all these trips which dont end up happening:P Its all been great! Also, working at the bank for the past 3 months put me in a much better mood as I enjoy what I do and I do it very well too.
This goes to show that one should always experience new things and give them the benefit of the doubt; not to judge something until they can back up their judgements.
This whole one year I lived by one quote (which I had on my MSN always):
Patience is a Virtue and I am Perfecting it Now
Anyway, enough said...... HAPPY ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY TO ME :DWarda
: Operation "Love Kuwait" is underway;)
