Someone wrote me a love letter (and it wasn’t from God lol) Ha!

She also always smacked my hand whenever I wanted to pull my hair. On the other hand, Hayat was a Community Adviser (like a Residential Assistant), so she had a room to herself and a spare bed. Whenever I spent the night in her room, once Hayat noticed I was awake, she greeted me with “hello beautiful”. That’s quite cheesy, but it made me really happy! What lovely words to hear first thing in the morning! Hayat made me my first cup of coffee, and whenever I was too lazy to leave the dorm …
