7. I cry easily, I might look tough for some people, but I’m one of those who cries 3ala atfah el asbab!! :S

8. I LOVE guys with gray hair, that’s why I’m in love with George Clooney’s look :dreamy eyes:

9. I hate history, I used to cause sooooooooooooo many troubles in history class, and I got kicked out of it several time, bad bad bad Maioush!

10. if someone gets on my nerves, I can be very rude, I smile a lot and all, bs ma y’3orkom el mazhar 🙂 .. when I’m mean.. I’m mean!! For real, I always’ end up hurting people’s feelings!

What every girl should NOT do before 18

 Ok, so everybody knows that I’m not the best when it comes to follow rules 🙂 , since I got tagged by Batoul, Wonders, and Oriental Arabesque, I decided to answer it … my way 😉

What you should NOT really do

1.Don’t get married:

The worst thing to do is to get married before the age of 18; girls are not mature (enough) to get married, and YOU CAN WAIT!!

2.Don’t dye your hair:

You’ll grow old and have A LOT of gray hair, you’ll get to a point when you wish you can take a break of it, do not damage you hair with these chemicals

3.Don’t put any makeup on:

There is nothing better than the natural beauty for little girls, you don’t really needs it in you teens, you’re suppose to have a great fresh skin, enjoy that.

4.Don’t fall in love:

Don’t break your heart too soon; you are better off without boys when you are a teen 😉

5.Do not quit school:

Don’t you ever, under ant circumstances quit school, finish Tawjeehi, and pick a major you like, and put a plan to yourself, DO NOT QUIT!!!

6.Do not get fat:

If you get fat in your early teens, you will NEVER be able to lose it, and even if you will, you will struggle keeping it down, make sure to watch your weight, have healthy habits when it comes to eating, it will affect you later in your life.

I’m not gonna tag anyone, as I noticed, most of the people are either tagged, or answered it already, but if you read this and feel like answering it, go ahead 🙂

State 5 things. at least. And tag 3 people … simple No??

Yalla… what will happen to Maioush if I go to Amman:

Real Moms… Raise, Care, & Love


I’ve been tagged by 7aki Fadi one wonderful tag.. I can’t be more proud to answer it, it’s about the person I love the most in my life… my mom…I got this tag in the time I miss my mom the most, I really miss her these days, I really need to see her, talk to her, hug her and kiss her.

What can I say about this wonderful lady… she is the sweetest and most delicate of all. She knows more of paradise than angels can recall.

She’s not only beautiful, but passionately young, playful as a kid, yet wise as one who has lived long.

Her love is like the rush of life, a bubbling, laughing spring that runs through all like liquid light and makes the mountains sing, and makes the meadows turn to flower, and trees to choicest fruit.

Her love is like an island in life’s ocean, vast and wide. A peaceful, quiet shelter from the wind, the rain, the tide.
She is at once the field and bower in which my heart takes root.

She is at once the sea and shore, our freedom and our past; with her i launch my daring ships, yet keep the things that last.

My mother’s love is consistent and patient, it will never fade.

My mother’s love is warm and compassionate, even in the shade.

My mother’s love always helps me through the weakest hours.

My mother’s love is always like a bouquet of flowers.

My mother’s love is strong and never steered me wrong.

My mother’s love is beautiful in many ways.

My mother’s love is sincere.

My mother’s love knows the depth of love.

My mother’s love is contentment, just like God’s love.

My mother’s love is absolutely all of the above.

You filled my days with rainbow lights, fairytales and sweet dream nights, a kiss to wipe away my tears, gingerbread to ease my fears.

You gave the gift of life to me and then in love, you set me free.
I thank you for your tender care, for deep warm hugs and being there.

I wish I could tell you, Mom how much you mean to me…. But there are no words to say how much I admire you… how much I appreciate you… how much I thank you for everything you’ve done.

For all the times you gently picked me up, when I fell down, for all the times you tied my shoes and tucked me into bed, or needed something but put me first instead.
For everything we shared, the dreams, the laughter, and the tears, I love you with a “Special Love” That deepens every day..
