In the blink of an eye 6 months had past! And that meant it was time for my probationary meeting to review my performance over the last couple of months. My meeting with my manager was nerve racking but it turns out I had nothing to be nervous about. The meeting went well and I was told that I would be graduating a week from that day. I had arranged for my mom to come over for my graduation.
When I picked her up from the airport it was such an emotional experience! Not seeing your mother for almost 7 months is not ideal. Every girl needs to have their mom in their life! We ran into each other’s arms there was a mixture of laughter, happiness and tears…. I was really excited to show mom my apartment and how grown up I’ve become in the last few months. Mom was especially keen to checkout my new cooking skills. As I would always show off and send mom pictures via Skype of the meals I was rustling up!
And the day had come GRADUATION! Alice and I got ready for the day, while Alice’s parents and mom waited at the apartment to meet us at the ceremony. It was a crazy feeling to think 6 months had past and I was no longer in my probation period. After the graduation we now have access to one of the best benefits of the job……to swap and bid for flights!! The ceremony was really nice you are called up in your batches and introduced individually with your name on the big screen and your countries flag. So far that is still probably my proudest moment!
Below are a few selfies of mom and I on our holiday around Dubai! We went on a desert safari, shopping at the biggest mall in the world, night out at the Marina and many more things like going out clubbing in Dubai (Very proud of you mom) to getting henna tattoos and visiting the tallest building in the world. Mom was also lucky enough to see Ginger the local cat that lives around the Sarab buildings. It was truly an unforgettable time with my mom! I love and miss you every day! xx
