I was playing around with documenting a day in my life for one of those livejournal communities. I decided to do it this past Sunday. As I was looking at the community rules, I noticed it said no cell phone photographs. I used my BlackBerry camera because mine hasn't worked in ages and I couldn't borrow my sister's. Some pictures are good, but most are just okay quality.
A few of the people who added me on here back in the day (does any one still check their friendslist?) did so because they thought it was interesting that I lived in Abu Dhabi, so here is a day in my life for you all :)

This day includes work and work related things. Image heavy.

Next time the pictures wont be as big and sure as hell not as grainy. I hope.



My phone rang and woke me up at 5:20 (ten minutes before my alarm), so I kind of got distracted and didn't take a picture. The only thing you missed was my cat Tina jumping up on me and meowing for food. Also, I lay in bed for a bit willing myself to get up.

Tina wanted me on the bed.

Got dressed, put on make up/perfume. My shoes were being fiddly.

Photobucket

Checked up on the kitty.

Photobucket

My dad shuffled into the kitchen at this point and said he wasn't going to work. I envied him for a bit. I took a picture of the time.

Got my stuff ready for the day. I had three bags on me: my purse, a bag with some grading in it, and my laptop.

Photobucket

Going off to war.

Start time, finish time, and then my tired face. With Kate Bush asking to be let in through the window I got ready for my next lesson.

Photobucket

I let them watch a movie. (I swear there are girls in the class)

Photobucket

School is over for the day, but I have tutoring for an hour.

Photobucket

All done!

I sign out and wait with the girl until her mother shows up to pick her up.
The Kindergarten graduation was the week before and they put that up. Every time I pass it, I get startled because I think its actual people.

The girl's mother shows up, so I talk to her for a bit and then its off home. Goodbye school.

Up the elevator, then I go say hello to my dad in the living room.

Photobucket

Feed Tina and then myself. I'm having marrow/zucchini stuffed with a rice mixture then cooked in tomato sauce. It was delicious.

Photobucket
Photobucket

I watch some French and Saunders until its time to get ready again.

I go check on Tina in my parent's bedroom, then after she follows me into the living room, she plays with my dad and mom. My ride then calls and I leave.

I love Abu Dhabi around this time of day.
After driving on the same highway I use to get to work, we get to our destination.

The place was pretty cool looking.

The assistants from the school were there to greet everyone as they came in.

We sit around clapping and standing up for various things.
Finally, it finishes.

Off home, but first food.

Perfect.

Photobucket

Blah traffic.

She doesn't like it when I go places.

Photobucket
Photobucket

I change, set my food up and watch more French and Saunders while I eat.

Photobucket

Multitasking.

Photobucket
Photobucket
Photobucket

I watch some The Young Ones and then go say good night to my parents. Meanwhile Tina is shameless.

Photobucket
Photobucket

Take off my make up then I settle down to watch a bit more then sleep.

Photobucket

Good night :)


I hope you guys enjoyed that. I'm thinking of doing another one next week when I go stay with my sister who lives in Dubai. I think I'll borrow her camera for that one.

Thanks for reading/looking :)
