Book Review – Local Girl Missing

Local Girl Missing by Claire Douglas, was a great read. I finished the book in three days because, well, I had a lot of free time on my hands, and I just couldn’t put it down. I kept wanting to know what was going to happen next!

The book is about a 21 year old girl, named Sophie, that goes missing in a small town and it breaks her best friends heart. After almost 20 years, Sophie’s brother Daniel and her best friend Francesca go back to the old town and look for answers.

There is a huge twist in the book that makes you question so much! The end, was definitely a shocker but it was a very good ending! 


Spoil Yourself

Spoil youself,
Go ahead,
Don’t be shy.

Buy yourself some flowers,
Go for a bike ride.

Purchase a new book,
Or go watch a movie by yourself.

Nothing wrong with some alone time,
Go ahead and spoil yourself.

Go have dinner at one of your faviorite spots,
Or go buy some bread, and feed them to a flock.

Don’t double think this,
Don’t worry about being alone.
Go ahead and spoil yourself,
enjoy some time alone.

Day 1 – Introduction and Recent Photo


I was never good at proper introductions because I use to just say random things about myself, that people weren’t really interested in. Of course, this is one of those times, so here it goes:

My name is Nadine. I’m Lebanese with Armenian blood, but I was born and raised in Qatar. I love animals, reading and writing. I have a passion for dancing.

I speak Arabic and English, and I am learning French.

I lived in Garland, Texas for my senior year as an exchange student and it was the best year of my life (2010-2011).

I’m a very motivated person, and a big positive thinker, however, I do have my low moments were I just can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel.

I’m a hard worker and I have been working since I was 14.

I’m an accountant, and I love it! I know, you don’t hear that a lot. I’m currently an employee at Schlumberger.

I love to travel a lot and learn about different areas of the world, languages, and cultures. Give me 15 minutes and I will be ready to travel anywhere in the world.
