Did someone slip Prozac into my coffee?

All this time I was blaming everyone else for my lack-of-life-in-Dubai-syndrome.
But it isn’t anyone else's fault.
It isn’t cos I’m living with parents. It isn’t that my job is taking up all my time. It isn’t Dubai.
It’s me!

I’m the problem.

And all this time I’ve been trying to escape from everything else, instead of changing what is MY fault. How can I run away from me??

Sure, all the problems I’ve mentioned are real, but they are insignificant.
If only I look at it from a different angle.

I should just stop complaining about stuff like this.

So I've decided!

I've decided that I'm gonna get off my butt and start enjoying life. I mean, there are millions of people all over the world who are trying to come to Dubai.
And right now, this place is booming with oppurtunities!

And I'm right here! And I'm trying to get out!? How crazy is that!
Life is not gonna be easy anywhere. But it's easier in Dubai than in most other places (I kid you not).
There really are so many things I can do here. I can meet people from all over the world! I can go bowling or ice skating or scuba diving or jet skiing or even skiing!

All you really have to do is have a positive attitude. And of course, I need to actually get up and get going! And I'm ready.

I'm ready to live and enjoy the ride, through it's ups AND downs.

Hell, I just might even find that stripper. ;o)

We are responsible for everything that is happening to us. We can blame it on the circumstances, but ultimately it is our responsibility.

Happy Holidays.

Santa Baby, just slip a sable under the tree,
for me.
Been an awful good girl, Santa Baby,
so hurry down the chimney to me.

Santa Baby, a Fifty-four convertible too,
light blue.
I'll wait up for you dear, Santa Baby,
so hurry down the chimney to me.

Think of all the fun I've missed.
Think of all the fellas that
I haven't kissed.
Next year, I could be
just as good --
If you'll check off
my Christmas list.

Santa Baby, I want a yacht and really
that's not a lot.
Been an angel all year, Santa Baby,
so hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa, Honey, one little thing -
I really need the deed
to a platinum mine, Santa Baby.
So, hurry down the chimney tonight.
Santa, Cutie, and fill my stocking
with a duplex ... and checks.
Sign your 'X' on the line, Santa, Cutie,
and hurry down the chimney tonight.

Come and trim my Christmas tree
with some decorations bought at
I really do believe in you.
Let's see if you
believe in me.

Santa Baby, forgot to mention
one little thing,
a ring.
I don't mean on the phone, Santa Baby,
so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Hurry down the chimney tonight
