Beware of Greeks Bearing Gifts!

Hey, the title is a bit too much, no? LOL

My dearest Hubb bought me an iPod Touch 4gen in January due to my outstanding result, which was 4.00! (Y)

He actually promised an iPhone 4 but due to its unappealing design, (read: IT WAS SO DARN EXPENSIVE) I opted for an iPod instead.

Months after that, my dearest Hubb again, surprised me with another gift, a Blackberry for my birthday!

Both came in packages, iPod was delivered in January while BB was in April.


I was beyond shocked with these gifts. I was as happy as a clam at high tide, until he laid out, THE CONDITION. To cut his long-fatherly-lecture short, he basically forced me to complete my Master's Degree this semester! I had one last subject and a minor thesis (project paper), all to be submitted by the end of June.

It was tough. I even had nightmares at night about not being able to complete everything in time. I was busy tossing and turning instead of resting. I struggled. Not with my one last subject. Not with the thesis.

But..., with the temptation of indulging myself with his gifts.


-____-"


Fast forward, now it's June and Alhamdulillah, I managed. All there is left is to make hardcover for my thesis, which I will do next week (I'm waiting for a pink form from my supervisor).

And after about 5 months, last Tuesday was my first time trying FaceTime with a friend, F.


Please excuse my atrocious Hana Tajima attempt (it was Hubb's blankie LOL). 
I was sick and had to stay in bed for a week. Will share that story later when I'm, ehem, strong enough.


I'm glad everything falls to plan and now I have all the time I need to change by BB ringtones or even change the wallpapers of both gadgets -___-
