About Me

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.

Yesterday I was driving in Medina street, and the traffic jam was unbearable even though it was not anywhere near the rush hour. My car crawled slowly through the street until the reason behind the jam was visible and right in front of me, a car had hit another car from the back, the two cars, and a third one, were parked on the left lane. The damage was not grave, and a woman and a man, who were clearly the ones who had the accident, were standing by their cars chatting and laughing.

You see, there are many things that are wrong with us, we are what we are because of so many reasons, but I genuinely think that this is the core of our problems: Selfishness. People are simply so selfish they cannot see beyond their noses, they live in their teeny tiny bubbles and think that only THEY matter. They don't even THINK that they are getting in the way of others. That man and that woman were making one of the busiest streets in Amman a hell for people and they were simply standing there on the left lane and chatting. Was it really that hard to park on the right like sane people would? did they think for a second about the situation around them?

When I saw them I wasn't mad, I was overwhelmed with sadness and disappointment, why should I live in this horrific city and this horrific country? when am I gonna leave this shithole that we call home?
THIS is what's wrong with us: We lack the most basic principles of citizenship, loyalty, and civilization. THIS is what is wrong with us: We think we love our country but we only love ourselves. This is what is wrong with us: We are a herd of sheep that has no real values, and I have to live here..
