As my alarm goes off at 6:30 in the morning, playing that aggravating sound that would probably agitate me as well if I heard it coming from the room next to mine, I slowly open my eyes whilst scrunching my forehead, portraying the "I hate mornings" mood that most people probably do on a regular basis, to check if the sun is up through my tiny window. I do this religiously with the thought of having a great start of the day- a boost of some sort that gives me the idea that today will be productive and fulfilling.

To be honest, the first few months I practiced that routine was actually to refrain from checking my phone. It would be unhealthy for me to start my day with either a discourteous text of argument, or no text at all.

(This is way long overdue but the memories are still worth blogging)

Ecstatic. Relieved. Blessed. Those were the exact words that went through my mind upon the approval of my US visa. That day was one of the happiest of my life, and no, I'm not overreacting. I was denied 3 times, and as I was being interviewed for the 4th time, I wasn't expecting anything other than being denied again. Don't get me wrong, I prayed and hoped for the best. However, it was as if I was getting used to rejection. Now, can you feel how happy I was? I cried. The rain was pouring so hard, and I couldn't recognize the car that my parents sent out to fetch me. I didn't care. I stood under the rain, looking for shade as I was trying to wipe the smile on my face, but I failed. I couldn't stop smiling. God is good. His timing is just perfect.

"Alright, good job! You're approved." -The exact words that was said to me by the interviewer. Alright, moving on to the actual trip! Here are the photos under the corresponding dates and venues of our holiday vacation!
