What earthquake?

Apparently everyone around me felt the earthquake that hit here in Jerusalem a few minutes ago. It's probably just the tippy-end of a bigger one somewhere else, but I didn't feel it either way. When I was 8 I slept through a California earthquake... so... yeah. UPDATE: Here are the details from Ynet - Earthquake... Continue Reading →

Now they're taking *our* semester breaks?

A little ironic after my last post, but: Universities set to cancel vacations to make up strike time There are so many three, four and six-letter words running through my head right now (bilingually), I can't really write anything else. University officials say that students will probably have to give up their semester break, and... Continue Reading →

I'm no Bar Rafaeli, but…

I miss my roommate.

So, the past week has been one big proof that marriage really works for me. Husband has been in London for a week-long trip of aliyah expos and I've been keeping the apartment... um... well, keeping it. The dishes have been hanging out on the counter (they're close friends now), the dinners have been -... Continue Reading →

Last year's a charm.

I just found out that for my last year of studies, to get my tuition paid for by Misrad Klita/Minhal Studentim, I need to volunteer 120 hours with little kids, the elderly or other olim chadashim. Apparently they only make you do it in the third year of receiving money from your aliyah rights. The... Continue Reading →
