I long for freedom, and when I get it, I don't know what I'm going to do with it, but I will surely be happy.

Unlike last year, Bath Bayakhah has been a complete disappointment this year. Other shows haven't been really interesting either.
However, this is priceless..this is just pure genius!
Seriously they should build a statue of Raja'i!

I've been anxious to read something amazing; something that would blow my mind away. Today I grabbed Ibrahim Nasrallah's "Taht Shams al-Duha," as I already read "Aminah's Weddings" (they are both published in the same book).
Anyway, I started reading, and you know how Ibrahim Nasrallah has this unique way of telling a story..he starts in the middle, confident that you will grasp the details slowly, letting you get to know the characters on your own...no explanation, no background to build on..he just gets to the point and draws the scene for you, allowing you to choose to love it..and that's beautiful, that's ingenious! but I am just not in the mood for it now, I need something that would take over my mind at the first line like when I read Evaluna or The Truce, as a reader I'm just not patient enough right now for Ibrahim Nasrallah.

So, I remembered this book that one of my American peer tutors told me about once, it's called The Diary of a Young Girl and it's about a Jewish girl who was trapped in her house with her family during the World War II when the Nazis were waging a genocide against the Jewish.
I'm extremely excited to read it, I have a feeling it's gonna make it to my list of favorites, but first I have to get it.
I will be coming back with a review after I read it inshallah.

عالأقل كافي الناس شرك

I hate all these photography pages on Facebook..most cheesy dull stuff I've ever seen! They represent everything I don't want in my photos
First there is the fake shot: you throw a rosary on the sand, or toss flowers on a table and bam! you take a close up shot and you post that on Facebook as if you freaking invented photography, honestly did you think that we would look at the photo and go "Oh my god! that is a woderful shot!! how was he able to snap that extraordinary photo without any previous plans!!" seriously?

Second there is the bimbo pose: you take a girl that looks like a bimbo, make her pose with her boobs or butt all over the photo and voila! you're a first-class Hollywood photographer!..ummm..no you're not

Third there are the slow shutter photos, personally I love slow shutter shots, but just the fact that u took a photo of water splashing around doesn't mean it is a masterpiece, I rarely ever see really good slow shutter shot

Black and White: I swear I used to love black and white photos until those so called photographers abused the hell out of them

I love vintage effects but only if they fit with the photo...Not every single photo of an old door should look vintage

Flowers: Stop taking blurry photos of ugly weeds and calling them photography

Stop taking cheesy shots and writing poetry and shit all over them

You took a photo of two bugs mating? seriously? and you're proudly posting it on Facebook? No comment.

I do not claim to be a great photographer, but at least when I post crappy photos I don't pretend I'm a freakin' professional!

So a while ago I applied for a job I was dying for, I got through the first exam and did the second one, but they did not invite me to the interview so I was like whatever..I'm still learning

BUT just this morning, someone actually told me, and yes they know all about it, told me that I was actually one of the best ones who applied for the job, but they didn't want me because I don't have much experience

God I was so pleased! :) it isn't much but it is nice to be appreciated every once in a while isn't it? I'm becoming a bit workaholic these days but I don't care, I'm motivated, ambitious, and happy! :) ya rb!

Two years ago when I got a scholarship to study for one semester at Granada University, Spain I was dead scared.. I was worried that I will be lonely, sad, lost, culturally shocked..I had no clue who I was and I did not understand what was around me let alone what was out these so far!

I do not regret my decision to decline the scholarship until this day, I actually think it was one of the best decisions I ever made in my life, because it was simply NOT the right time.

Now..I feel like I'm ready.. I have a full understanding of myself and a sufficient understanding of the world... I wanna travel and see other places
So..I'm looking for scholarships...programs...anything that would give me the chance to see the world
Wish me luck...and if you have any suggestion let me know

Over n' out ;)
