But I’ve been extremely busy , honestly since I started my new job I don’t have to do anything, I miss being bored at work, I miss reading blogs on my break time, it totally different, I seriously don’t have time to do anything.

Don’t get me wrong, I miss the blogs so much, I miss writing on my own blog the most, bs this is kinda cool, being super busy like that is extremely nice,  I know it sounds crazy, but I’m always running out of time to do things, if the day will be 50 hours instead of 24 I will still be running out if time !! 😀

[Blog about Palestine Day] The Holy Land, this is where I’m from.

I honestly don’t know where I’m supposed to start! This page has been up for more than 30 minutes now, totally blank, I have so many things in mind about this event, Palestine ::sigh:: couple of days ago I tried to look up my roots, and I read a lot about Jeneen, it’s amazing the history that city had, and I must say, I got goose bumps just by looking at the pictures.

Jeneen that small city, I still have relatives lives there, I don’t know most of them, but you know, the few that I saw…. Hmmm how can I say it, can I say that… let me just say that I feel very special around them, I keep on looking at them admiring them, sometimes I ask them “how does Palestine looks like?” do you go to Jerusalem?” did you bring ma3ak trab mn el blad?”

And I actually asked one of my friends who used to love their for “trab” from el Quds! He gave me a bottle full of it, I have it in my bedroom, maybe for some people it’s stupid, but for me, that’s part of the holy land, et3a mn ardi!

Guys, this is the first time that I actually struggle while writing a post! Maybe I’m getting too emotional from all the posts I’m reading for everybody for the past few hours!

And I dare you, try to watch this little girl without having goose bumps or not even cry!

PRICELESS WORDS (LOOOOOOOOL!)

OK.. I got this on my Email today, maybe most of you knows it already, well… I didn’t get it till today 😀 , I wasn’t planning to blog about it, but it cracked me up 🙂 .. so cute kaman 😳

A husband wakes up at home with a huge hangover.
He forces himself to open his eyes, and the first thing he sees
is a couple of aspirins and a glass of water on the side table.
He sits down and sees his clothing in front of him, all clean and
pressed. He looks around the room and sees that
it is in perfect order, spotless, clean. So is the rest of the house.
He takes the aspirins and notices a note on the table.
‘Honey, breakfast is on the table, I left early to go grocery shopping.
Love You!’
 
Totally shocked with the note , he goes to the kitchen and
sure enough there is a hot breakfast and the morning newspaper.
His son is also at the table, eating. He asks, ‘Son, what happened last
night?’  
His son says, ‘Well, you came home around 3 AM, drunk and delirious.
Broke some crockery, puked in the hall, and gave yourself a black eye
when you stumbled into the door’.

 

Confused, the man asks, ‘So, why is everything in order and so clean, and
breakfast is on the table waiting for me? I should expect a big quarrel with her!’

His son replies, ‘Oh, that! Mom dragged you to the bedroom, and when she tried to take your clothes n shoes off, you said,  
 
‘LADY LEAVE ME ALONE! I’M MARRIED!’

Moral:
Self-induced hangover – $ 400.00
Broken crockery – $ 800.00
Breakfast – $ 10.00
Saying the Right Thing While Drunk * ‘PRICELESS”

SORRY… I’m BAD! :(

::YaAaAaAaAaWN:: it’s not even 8:00am (well, it will be by the time I BuBlish this Bost, it’s too early for me, allah wakeelkom mesh tay2a!

Any way, I was feeling like ranting, but then I changed my mind 🙂 (Pretty schizophrenic I know!!), you guys I wanna tell you something, I noticed that I’m becoming a very mean, rude, ignorant, bel 3arabi… bad person!! 😦 I hate that, I know what the reason is and I’m gonna tell you about it bs tawlo balkom shwai…

As I always say, I’m a calm person by nature, I don’t yell, and I hate yelling, pretty patience, and I can call my self an understanding person,  but due to stress I became really impatience, I get irritated easily, it’s so not like me, I mean seriously, I hate it, and I’m mad at myself and at people due to that fact, it’s like I’m mad at myself cuz I’m getting mad easily now… HUH!! Say that again, that doesn’t even make any sense!! Bs hada elli ejakom! 😦

ON GOOD AND EVIL…

I personally do not really believe in good and evil. I get irritated when people simplify things to something black and white. It just doesn’t work that way, in a lot of cases. Like the poor man who steals so he can buy his dying wife some medicine that he can’t afford to keep her alive. Technically, society should be helping the less fortunate instead of allowing a man to resort to stealing in order to keep someone else alive.

Good and evil, like when I hear my friend talking about how she hates lions because they kill animals. Pfft, why don’t people like this just turn vegetarian? It’s one thing to be annoying and vegetarian; it’s another to be selectively caring of an animal’s fate. Sure, the abattoir doesn’t involve people running after zebras and strangling them to death, but surely people recognize that the slabs of meat they engulf everyday has to come from somewhere? Just because it comes on a nice styrofoam plate with hardly any blood and backed by very bright lights doesn’t make it better, it doesn’t diminish any responsibility. We’re able to just go about doing what we do, without any thought to where that meat comes from.

Who knows where the meat comes from anyway? Have you ever been in an abattoir? Have you ever seen the slaughtering of cows, goats, sheep? How am I supposed to know that the cheap beef in the supermarket isn’t from somewhere else like cat or dog? Could you kill an animal yourself? Our society now, where people cringe at the thought of slicing a chicken’s neck open, I can’t help but wonder if this is a good thing.

Then again, that’s something to think about as well, the act of just not thinking about things which leads us to live like blind men.

Sorry…Sorry…Sorry

I haven’t posted anything in ages, it seems to be getting worse as I get older. I seem to be posting less and less, and I do apologize but I cannot help it. It’s not the fact that work has been crazy everyday for the past three weeks, or that I’m afraid of my boss reading my blog because he can see it on my facebook profile, or the fact that most of my opinions might get me fired, hehehehe but that I’ve just seemed to lose my inner voice.

My inner voice has plagued me since I was a child, always thinking and never shutting the hell up. I used to do anything I could to drown it out like reading books, watching television, you know, mindless stuff that kids do nowadays to destroy their mental well-being. Yeah. Now it seems, I have succeeded. Well, sort of. I still think about the same things that I rant about over and over again.

There seems to be an underlying trend though, people just following something so blindly and being told that it is wrong without considering the other side of the fence. For example, deforestation and development. I can understand a person’s fury if a forest were cleared for a golf course however, I cannot understand a person’s fury if it’s for a new housing estate or industry. Obviously the land is needed for the benefit of human lives, would we deny third world countries the same sort of development that we have already done? It’s really easy for someone to say this when they’ve had clean running water, a solid roof over their heads and a walmart for all their needs. Curse those people in huts and shanty towns, how dare they destroy our planet. Why don’t they recycle? Those idiots!

Why don’t people think about these things, it’s not that hard, really. I mean, all you have to do is consider a topic beyond what any medium has told you. I blame the intarweb and mobile phone entertainment. Obviously human ignorance has been happening since the beginning of history but you’d think with the… increased(?) free flow of information that, that would have been abolished. Nope, now it’s worse because we don’t have an excuse. It’s worse now because children would have been exposed to more information than their grandparents and not have enough time to digest that information.

As a person who is guilty of trying to destroy her mind in her younger days, I can understand it. Keep your mind busy, don’t think. Play a mobile game, listen to some music, watch a movie, watch television, go play a sport, go sleep, etc. We all hate to be bored, but sometimes it’s necessary. It is when we are bored that we ponder the great questions of life. My theory is that instead of the toilet being the throne of contemplation, the toilet is just a place where we are shut out from any external information and are thus able to ponder and think. Unless of course, we have a mobile phone.

Now with the dawn of mobile entertainment and the cursed mp3 player, everybody may be entertained at all times of the day and never have to think. We have become the zombies that our predecessors have warned us about. Just steps away from Orwell’s 1984 but then again, maybe I’m wrong. Maybe we were all zombies in the first place, it’s just that now we’re entertained zombies. Huh, how about that?

(Hey, managed to rant quite a bit about not being able to rant. Yeah!)
