Binge Much?

Is it just me that the days are getting longer yet the hours are quicker?

Maybe…maybe not. But I don’t know about you, I’ve been bingeing so much lately and it’s a good thing for me. Since it is summer season and there are a lot of things that I am looking forward to 🙂 I am excited! Happy Monday to you all!

Anywoo! We all get sucked into the world of Netflix, Hulu or even Amazon Prime, I’m sure and it is so hard to not binge when it is so close to bedtime. You find yourself looking at the time in the dark and shook yourself that it was already 3am. You curse yourself and force yourself to sleep because you have work in the morning. That’s pretty much me sometimes. When I find a show that I really like, like really likes the show so much that I binge so hard. I tell myself daily that I need to start organizing my shiet before watching my show.

A few days ago, I just finished watching a TV show called “Lucifer” on Hulu and man, it is good. I personally like to watch fantasy slash crime type of shows because it makes everything so interesting. I finished that show less than 3 weeks. I KNOW. I know. You’re thinking “Omg, HAYA.” or “Damn girl, you have no life when it comes to bingeing.” I know, I couldn’t agree with you more. It’s a bad habit and I’m pretty sure y’all do that too! Hopefully, Netflix will add season 4 for Lucifer” since the show itself got canceled on FOX channel. (fingers crossed). Now, I’m catching up with “Wynonna Earp” on Netflix season 2. I should stop, don’t I? (telling myself to start prioritizing again).

There’s nothing wrong with watching Netflix or Hulu and chill on your bed. I mean honestly, that’s how I do #Hayaflop right there. However, it’s taking away your priorities. It’s a distraction if you have your show on in front of you. I’ve been telling myself not to do that and you ended by telling yourself 5 more minutes with the show or at least the episode ends. But then again, there’s nothing wrong with that.

Not to worry, next week Monday’s post will be better 🙂 Thank you for taking your time of the day and I appreciate you so much! Catch a glimpse of Haya later.

 

Aneela

One random morning, my roommate and I were sitting in the dining area. I asked her if she would like to be the first person for me to interview. She was like “Yeah, sure.” And so this happened…

img_3539Tell me about yourself.

Wanna know about myself? 

Yes.

You know about myself.

Well, the point of this interview is the people who are reading this blog will like to know about yourself.

Okay…I grew up in San Diego. Where my family from is from Iraq. I forgot to say that I was born and raised in SD. I was born with a lot of complications and survived through multiple surgeries. I was mainstreamed throughout the school. I was bullied because I am Deaf. I bear through it even though I don’t complain about it. I love my family but I don’t get along with them due to communication. A few of my friends and mentors encouraged me to go to school which is CSUN and yeah, there you go! WAIT, go back. First move in with roommates. My first roommate moving after 29 years living with family. I got so lucky that I have amazing roommates AND I heard rumors that you guys are bad roommates But only me, I got lucky. Then after that two years, I got a BA.

What ethnicity are you?

American-Chaldean.

Describe yourself with 3 words.

Faith. Hope. Love

Woman, that is a quote.

HAHA! (walks away to the kitchen) Woman.

What is your pet peeves?

(Laughs). Nothing.

Are you sure?

Yes

Woman, what you don’t like or see in front of you.

Nothing. (facepalm). Because I know you have certain things you don’t like, but okay.

Who is your role model, and why? Someone you look up to.

Still thinking, I don’t know (eating her toast in front of me…Looking at Lance.)

Vadja. Why? He is my teacher from high school. He is also my mentor. What he did for his children and how he raises them. I look at him like wow! I want to do similar things like him. And plus he is Deaf. He teaches for 35 years. He is also the reason why I go to CSUN.

What’s the spiciest thing you’ve ever eaten?

Hot sauce. No, I’m kidding. Jalapeño. I like hot Cheetos. One time, I ate chicken wings but the sauce itself was the spiciest I ever have eaten and vowed myself not to eat them again. It’s like OOO! Another one is curry. 

How do you judge a person?

I don’t judge people. Unless in my culture, we do judge people with their makeups like if they put WAAAY too many makeups or did not fit with their skin tone color. That it.

What’s the most annoying noise?

The sirens in general and cockroaches. One time, I asked my mom what is that noise? She asked what noise? That ticking or ee-ing thing. Mom said oh, that’s cockroaches. You can hear that?! She said, yeah! I can hear that. It’s gross. Mom asked, can you hear them overnight? She said, no thank god. I took off my hearing aids when I sleep.

What food do you crave most often?

Obviously, sushi.

What is your sign?

Virgo. You know. VIRGO! (fist in the air)

But people don’t know that. 

What are you currently worried about?

About my recent surgery and my health.

If someone narrated your life, who would you want to be the narrator?

Points at me. (I laugh then a straight face). HAHA.

At this point, I ran out of questions and time. I had to get ready for work. Let me know who you want me to interview and I can try my best to interview that person in person or possibly in face time. So far, I am liking how this interview turns out when I added the action and expression in it. It shows her personality and the vibe of the interview, hahaha. Anyways, catch a glimpse of Haya later!

Thoughts of Moving Out

Inside the world of my thoughts.

“Shiet.”

“Think positive. Everything will be alright.”

“I’m moving out for some good reasons: saving money, helping out my parents, focusing more on what I need to do for myself.”

“Eh, it’s not a bad idea.”

“Eh, maybe it is. At some point, I’ll suffocate.”

“AHHHHHHHHHHhhhhhahahhhhhhhhhhhhh.”

“What about my freedom/my independence?”

“I’m going to miss driving everywhere every time I’m craving for food.”

Looking around the living room and see Lance in his own little world on the floor.

Awh, I’m going to miss Lance and his weirdness. Look at his long legs!”

“I’m going to miss this huge space. Coz’ I know it’ll be small when I move in back home.”

Fake crying on that thought.

“What about my work? Gotta think about the miles and hours.”

“At least, I got some excuse to stay longer or sleepover.” “Pothativeth thinkink.”

“Meh, at least I only work in the afternoon every day. Should be fine.”

“Well, during night time…Probably going wait until the traffic wind down.”

“I think I have a lot of things to bring.”

“My parents need to get rid of a lot of things before I bring them down there.”

“I need to donate most of my clothes. I don’t even wear half of my closet.”

I started making a list of what to do.

“I need to reserve a u-haul. I need to ask my boss for a request day off.”

“I need to start saving more money instead of buying food…Should I get acai bowl, though? That sounds actually pretty good right now…”

“I need to start organizing my shit especially things that I don’t even use at all.”

“I need to remind my roommates about the day I’ll be moving out.”

“Mama needs to get rid of her scrubs or send it to the Philippines.”

“I need to get my shiet and life together.”

I got distracted.

“What should I eat before work?”

“I want spam and egg with rice…”

“Why I have so many books in the storage?”

“Should I stop by Targets?”

“I need to finish this level on Genies & Gems game.”

“I honestly don’t think I have a lot of things from here…Seriously…Maybe…”

Burp.

“Excuse me.”

Stay tuned for a glimpse of Haya 🙂
