Season's Screaming !!!

I have been trying for a while to post something new , but I am suffering from a brain stop phase, everyday I get loads of Ideas, but once I'm in front of my laptop I lose track of what I wanted to write about, so I end up deleting the crappy draft .

The last 2 weeks have been really busy for me, lots of welcome backs, goodbyes, new glasses (that I thought would change the way I look to the world...didn't happen), New job location... any one would say " these are endless reasons to write something " but it is just not working.



Last year was a hard one, lots of broken dreams - even small dreams were hard to achieve - , but we still attached ourselves to the 1% of "It wont be that bad" possibility.

Even you believe that a New year is a reason for new hope, it is a milestone for putting the bad things that happened in a closed box, and move on with a smile that indicated that you are sure that next year will be better, but since we all want to forget bad memories and have hope, why do we have to let a stupid calendar do it for us? ... Everyday can be a milestone and we can have the same hope we pretend to have at the beginning of every new year... as Duke Nukem used to say: " Let's kick some ass and chew bubble gum".... Happy New Year.

Creativity in a time of financial crisis!

As most of us know, Dubai was one of the places that was heavily affected by the financial crisis, Many people were laid off under the justification of "Downsizing", "Restructuring" and "Cash flow problems" .

Farah Nasrawi a talented designer -who happens to be my cousin - was one of those people mentioned above, but instead of losing faith, hanging around, and doing nothing she starts working on her painting skill, which I found amazing, I shall leave you now with some of her paintings.

Note: the description under each picture is taken as mentioned by the artist.

Description: My cat, Caramel - was asleep next to me one night....I couldn't resist sketching her!


Description: You can decide what this is - i know what it is! :P


Description: Butterfly - taken from a real image i found in one of my dad's old Butterfly books.


Description:In a dark moment..


Description: Happy!


Description: Hope


Description:Ornamentation (Zakharafah) that i worked on this summer - the Arabic Calligraphy in the center still needs to be added.


Description: A close up of the ornamentation (zakhrafeh), so detailed, everything hand drawn and painted, took almost a month and a half - which was record-breaking!


No description added

9 Quotes to think about...

These are 9 Movie quotes to relate to the present, try they may seem a bit negative, I hope you find the positive side in them and relate to your life ...

1- Tyler Durden – Fight club


Man, I see in Fight Club the strongest and smartest men who've ever lived. I see all this potential, and I see it squandered. God damn it, an entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables — slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cars and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need. We're the middle children of history, man. No purpose or place. We have no Great War. No Great Depression. Our great war is a spiritual war. Our great depression is our lives. We've all been raised on television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires, and movie gods, and rock stars, but we won't. We're learning that fact. And we're very, very pissed off.


2- Jake Green - Revolver

There is something about yourself that you don't know. Something that you will deny even exists, until it's too late to do anything about it. It's the only reason you get up in the morning. The only reason you suffer the shitty boss, the blood, the sweat and the tears. This is because you want people to know how good, attractive, generous, funny, wild and clever you really are. Fear or revere me, but please, think I'm special. We share an addiction. We're approval junkies. We're all in it for the slap on the back and the gold watch.


3- Michael Corleone – The Godfather

Never hate your enemies. It clouds your judgment.


4- Frodo - The lord of the rings

The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began,
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow if I can,
Pursuing it with eager feet,
Until it joins some larger way
Where many path and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say.
The Lord of the Rings
The Old Walking Song sung by Bilbo Baggins, Chapter 'A Long-Expected Party'.


5- The Rabbi – lucky number slevin

The unlucky are nothing more than a frame of reference for the lucky, Mister Fisher. You are unlucky, so I may know that I am not. Unfortunately the lucky never realize they are lucky until it's too late. Take yourself for instance; yesterday you were better off than you are today but it took today for you to realize it. But today has arrived, and it's too late... You see? People are never happy with what they have. They want what they had. Or what others have...I'm a bad man who doesn't waste time wondering what could've been when I am what could've been and what could not have been. I live on both sides of the fence, and the grass is always green.


6- Top Dollar - The Crow

A man has an idea. The idea attracts others, like-minded. The idea expands. The idea becomes an institution. What was the idea? That's what's been bothering me, boys. I tell you, when I used to think of the idea itself, it put a big ol' smile on my face. Greed is for amateurs. Disorder, chaos, anarchy: now, that's fun.


7- V - V for vendetta

There's no flesh or blood within this cloak to kill. There's only an idea. Ideas are bulletproof.


8- Robert Spritzel- The weather man

Do you know that the harder thing to do and the right thing to do are usually the same thing? Nothing that has meaning is easy. "Easy" doesn't enter into grown-up life


9- Brian Shelby – Vanilla sky

You can do whatever you want with your life, but one day you'll know what love truly is. It's the sour and the sweet. And I know sour, which allows me to appreciate the sweet.

Impossible is Something!!!

Yes; Impossible is something to admire, like and hate, impossible is wicked and it does exist, lets face it, Most of our dreams are impossible, and dreams are different than ambitions because they have the tendency to be possible!.

In the science of probability impossible is the event that has zero probability of happening, but this doesn't mean that the event does not exist!.

what happens in life is that we tend to put lower standards, less dreams and objectives that need much less efforts, we are lazy, we hate to work, we don't want to move a muscle and still we want to have all the attention, credit and love of the whole world.... well this is impossible!.


when we accomplish something that is impossible is that you change the concept or the environment of the event, Example : men can't fly... man created planes that fly, planes can carry men when they fly, but still man didn't fly".

Sadly one of the impossible events I have is to do the hobbies I used to do 2 years ago!.

and you what are your impossibles?

The never ending challenge!

There are those that stare up at the stars and those that build rocket ships ...Lee O'Shea

Everybody has his own Challenges, how we meet those challenges, Come over them, Turn around them or even enjoy them is what really set us apart, make us unique and give us sense of achievement (or failure).

I always thought that doing what I have to do is never worthy of acknowledgment, doing less that you are supposed to do is worthy of punishment, and doing more than you have to do is stupid!, although determining this exact amount is really controversial , well folks I hope you like my conclusion, I guess this is why they say in Arabic ( e3mal 5air o ermy bil ba7ar- do a good deed and forget about it).

The exact amount is the effort a person makes without feeling guilty when saying that he's done, with the condition of having the output of the work in its best possible way, this theory applies only for people with an "active conscious server" otherwise do whatever you have to do to stay out of trouble, and be on the good list ( The fastest way to move from the good list to the bad list is to explode!).

A challenge is a time related mission that has 2 types of outcomes and they are :

1-An accomplished mission: the mission is not necessarily self-initiated
2-A conclusion about rights and wrongs, this would help enhance the next similar mission.

But what if you have continuous challenges, what if you get used to having a challenge, what if you become one of those who would be informed that the world is falling apart and just thinks of a solution right away! I think this is where challenge has become a routine, stress became a welcomed friend and life has become much less interesting!.

This is what I thought before, the killer is having nothing to do -No Challenge- it is like having no purpose or direction, challenge is what makes us wake up in the morning accepting the fact that we are still alive and I am thankful for every challenge I have.

Hope you are up to your challenges :).

Suffering for music!!!

It was my Birthday last week , and as every year I got a flashback of the old days, this year the flashback was about the old music days, when I became 14 years old I was introduced to Nirvana, And ever since I became a rock/Metal Fan.

I lived in Irbid which is a small city in the north of Jordan, There wasn't much to do for a teenager there; Internet was the newest thing at that time, where only the rich can go to an internet cafe; and not everyone owned a computer!.


We used to buy tapes to listen to music, My dad Used to give me (3 JOD = 5$) every week as pocket money, a music tape was 1.5 JOD (not original of course).

there where only 3 music shops in Irbid, 2 of them had mostly pop music ( that was when Nsync was the biggest thing ever) and a little rock collection ( I had more rock tapes than they did), The Third was the real mind blower!.

At that time, Heavy metal music was an underground industry, everyone who likes rock music was thought to be satanic,and everyone had access to heavy metal music. It was hard to get any good music, except at what I'm going to call in this post "It".

It was a music shop with no name, and the biggest alphabetically ordered music tapes, the biggest collection ever, and right behind the counter there was a hard to see group of shelves where all the things I really wanted were kept... Anathema, Metallica, Slipknot, Haggard, Korn and many other great bands where listed there where no one can see them, and Since internet wasn't so accessible at the time, It was hard to know what's new, what's good and what's not, so here came Osama's turn.

Every Thursday I skipped the last class at school and walk for 20 minutes to reach It, If Osama (which is the name of the owner of It) had any customers and I want to ask him anything he looked at me and said "wait", When the customers are gone I could ask him about a band I heard about or about a musician I found Mentioned in Smash hits magazine since Metal hammer Magazine was also hard to find!.

He never gave me the Music I Wanted, he always gave me advice to take something else, explained to me the different types of Heavy Metal, made me listen to samples while he eats his small sized onion cream flavored pringles with mango juice ( a killer combination if you ask me!) and every tape I bought (which cost 50% of my weekly income at the time!) was a wonderful experience.

Osama started to open only on Wednesdays for few hours, then closed for ever, Few years ago, I found out that Osama owned a huge music store in the UK, and he went back there because he couldn't fit in!.

I am really Grateful for Him , I think a huge part of my personality developed this way because of the music I listened and still listen to.

Note: thanks to allouh who encouraged me to write about this.

Yours,

For those who died alone - by pentagram

We live, walk this earth struggle , spend all our lives searching for happiness and we are not Happy. The more aware, educated and intellectual we become, the more unsatisfied we are.

We fear death, and we search for a reason to die for!!!

Human.. that's what we are... a word that holds all the contradictions in it, we destroy to build, kill to live and live to destroy and build, most of us live and die with no cause other than greed, and those who die for a cause never get the acknowledgment unless after they die, the phrase "life is unfair" has become a fact, and facts have become so hard to find!.

I dedicate this song to all of those who died, dying or will die all " all of us die alone in the end" ... It is ironic how we make an endless effort while knowing that at the end we will be on our own!!!

I have listened to this speaking music all day today... and I can't have enough of it ...I hope it rings a bill for you...

Where the good times Go???

I know It has been a while folks, But I was busy being a working class hero... lots of tasks, allergy comes in handy whenever the weather changes, I had my share of anti histamines, I think I'm a great asset for the medical industry!!!.

early last week I had a job mission, there was a conference and our company was a software sponsor , and they thought of me as the person in front of the cannon ball, but It all went well.

The 2 days I spent were full of hard work, but I found myself with a lovely, easygoing and cooperative team, there were around 10 people, I thought I was the only outsider among them, but yesterday I realized, the maximum number of people who already knew each other was 3!!!, and the rest were just like me , it is amazing how harmonic the work was, how together we enjoyed the hardest moments, and how with each step we took we became closer to success in our mission!.

what I learned from this experience is : " if you know your task, you are good to go, you don't really need time to adapt!" .

I'll miss the team I worked with, but I wonder if I left a fingerprint in their lives during this short time!

The unlucky lucky me!

Well , I was writing the unfortunate events that I have had this week, but after I realized that I spent 30 minuets talking about only one incident I realized that it will take me forever to say them in details.




1- I lost my mobile 5 times " yes five..it was lost once and it took me from Saturday to Thursday to get it back home".

2- lost my apartment keys 2 times "always happens".

3- Got the news that there will be no raise this month " yes of course it is the international crisis"

4- had been waiting for a bad thing that is going to happen but I can tell you what! "I can't means that I won't..even if you ask..sorry"

5- got stuck in the elevator once and on the way out i almost got cut into half...who on earth would design and elevator that has hidden blade doors that close so fast even if someone was in the middle.

6- Was waiting 3 days to eat my frozen meal that turned out to be the worst meal I ever had.

7- Had to be away from people I love.

8- Had minimum or no contact with people around me!

9- I almost missed the bus because of a long delayed meeting! " i had to run like forest gump"

and What makes me wonder about is the fact that i still wake up every morning , I look at the mirror with a smile and lie to my self by saying " today , everything seems to be OK!!!" and I go to work convinced in this fantasy!... so stupid of me..I know

yours,

This story is symbolic

There was A princess ,
she was waiting in a place,
where she lived happily,

She fell in love,
she was as peaceful as a white dove.
she had all she wants in this love.

But an adviser came up with a thought,
and to the palace a young prince he brought,
and the king never cared for what the princess thought.

Her man needed time,
for all he can afford is bread and thyme,
and he didn't have a dime
to be with what he called " the love of mine"

The princess was forced to see the young prince,
the peasant lover was overwhelmed with anger
"how come this prince thinks he can claim what is mine?" he said
"for maybe I'm not the best... but I would Cherish my queen the best"
"its not the crown,
its not the fame...
its the tear I drop whenever she looks away..."

the prince left the palace and he shall wait and may reappear,
when the lover and the princess shall wait in suspense fear!!!

Note: this poem may mean different things to different people, it is about "someone else" that is trying to take what is "something" from you, It may remind you of reoccurring incidents!!!

A Strange Hair Day!!!

People always hope for a good hair day, and when they are upset they say " having a bad hair day",Well... Today for me was a "strange Hair day".

Today was the first day in the rest of my life (of course it was... but had to start somehow!).



I came to work, started a task that was assigned to me yesterday end of the day, I was actually glad because I prepared all the items I need for the task since I didn't have time to actually start with it, and things went smoothly... Until... KABOOM; I found that the template I take as a reference for my review tasks has been changed ; it kinda became a whole new document that needs restructuring.

Two months ago; such incidence would have caused me to announce "code red " in my "Brain department" and start seeking a contingency plan.

Today the little Adi behind the fancy desk that is behind the red velvet curtain inside my Brain Department yelled : " Assess then react!!!" , so I decided to proceed as before since the task was initiated according to the older Version and no notification was received by my side.

It is quite strange, I finally reached a point where I can make a decision that has consequences, although I might be blamed for it, but I have to start at some point!!!

Another incident; I went down with a colleague to smell a bit of fresh air " as in the Opera O Sole mio (l'aria freska)" , we were talking about a graduation project for a university student we saw few months ago, it was an alarm clock that sprays water when it rings then it runs away... my other colleague was saying " I swear to God, if it throws Water at me I will *#$#$%&%$" when suddenly a huge amount of water fell on both of us from a window.... Yes people... KARMA exists!!!

And finally I went to a restaurant and the waiter was strangely nice to me.. I even thought he was gay but it turned out that he is nice to everyone. But really he was nice in a scary way, He refilled my soda free of charge without even asking!... is there still such nice people in the world?!.

Advice: strange hair days are the most worthy of being documented!!!

Spiritual Coffee Story!

Once my friend and I went to a Coffee House, we both ordered cappuccino to go, I noticed that he didn’t put any sugar in his cup when I told him to do so – I thought he forgot to do so!- he answered “ No…This is a spiritual Drink!!!

Let’s say that I have been inspired to write a post about coffee (Passive Voice), I did some thinking and research, and the strange fact was: “Coffee was initially used for spiritual reasons; it became the substitute beverage in spiritual practices where wine was forbidden

Imagine how Much less people would any of us know if it wasn’t for coffee, the photos below tell the story of a coffee bean …


Picture 1 (above) The white Coffee seeds are placed in soil until young coffee trees grow up then they are moved to land plantations.


Picture 2 (above) the young coffee trees are planted in plantations, notice that there are banana trees nearby , this is why Coffee planting countries are also famous for banana, coffee trees are planted in the shade of other trees


Picture 3 (Above) green coffee cherries grow ... don't they look inspiring???.


Picture 4 (Above) Now the cherries became nice,red, shining and Very tempting for gathering, I always wondered why when a fruit or a vegetable is ready to be picked it looks at its best!!!


picture 5 (Above) The gathering has started, the Joy of harvest and never mind the exhausting hard work.


Picture 6 (Above) the nice red shining cherries are peeled, each cherry has 2 coffee beans, can you imagine that this used to be done by Hand!


Picture 7 (above) coffee is processed, this takes huge amounts of water, in places were water is a limited resource a "Dry" method is used.


Picture 8 (Above) coffee beans are slowly roasted with constant motion so all beans are roasted equally , the amazing smell of coffee becomes noticeable , a nice brown color starts to taint the fresh beans , to have shiny beans with an amazing aroma!!!

Finally you can order you favorite coffee ... sit down and relax, each bean deserves to be enjoyed and respected!.



I hope that you won’t use the phrase “Just a cup” the next time you invite someone for Coffee maybe the word spiritual is more honest.

Yours,
Adi Nashashibi

In a time of Celebration!!!


In a time of Eid lots of memories come to mind, it make a man wonder how things changed in the last 10 or so years, I remember in my neighborhood how the first day of Eid was, it used to start with one person going to his next door neighbor to celebrate Eid, then both visit the next neighbor, and so on , there are around 100 houses in my neighbor hood, and the whole process to let everyone meet with everyone else took only 3 hours at the most , people even met on the streets while different groups are walking towards the next house it was really nice, simple and real.

Nowadays - And speaking for my self before anyone else- I went through a whole maze of virtual networks I did all the following:

1- I sent emails to all my contact wishing them a happy Eid.
2- I sent SMS's to most of my contacts on my mobile phone.
3- I set my facebook status to congratulate my friends.
4- I set my twitter to congratulate my followers for Eid.
5- I replied on threads and commented FB statuses for messages and statuses congratulations for Eid
6- I replied on message for those who I lost their numbers and sent messages to me so I had their numbers now.

all of this took hours and hours, we are all becoming broadcast centers, we are becoming too connected to meet , too arrogant to take the initiative to meet, and too social to spend a "God know how long I've been waiting for this" Vacation with the ones we really love, care about and cherish the most!. after listing all the points above I look and say " WHY???!!!" and the only answer th1at come to my mind is: Guilt, there is no more satisfying celebration more than being physically, Emotionally together, focused with each other.

Being a telecommunications engineer contradicts with what I'm saying...well no, Telecommunications is meant to ease people's lives in order to save time so we can be together more... am I right?

after all I wish everyone A happy Eid -- I know that was number 7 :) --

The six employees

I was on my way home with some of my colleagues at work when i talked about this, allouh convinced me to post it , hope you like it...



Working in Many places until now , dealing with all different types of people made me realize that employees come in only few categories, I hope I include them all,

1- Smart: the ones that are always right, this type is hated but respected at the same time, they are the most qualified to succeed but for some reason their career is a struggle against endless obstacles.

2- stupid: this is the type that everyone hate to work with, the very same type that you forget to send meeting request to or if they don't come to work, you don't even notice, they lack since of adventure, but they do exactly what they are asked to do! But they have to ask many questions of course!.

3- social: the nice people that like to help anyone that comes along, but when in need they are totally alone, the good relationship with everyone makes it hard for this type to complain about performance , they are usually mistaken as non-productive people, but they are good performing hard working and non-complaining employees, and they are usually under estimated.

4- Multi-personalities: this is the best type for success, the worst for companionship, these people are the one that yell at you one day for not saying good morning and thank you in a meeting for being too busy to say good morning, they are unpredictable people, not smart but mainly mood driven , I think they suffer from Multi-Personalities disorder or a hormones malfunction, these are the most dangerous!.

5- Cranky: what ever you do they wont be happy, nuthing makes them too angry and nothing makes them calm, they are always is a constant state of rage, so do whatever makes you happy!

6- Mysterious: these are the ones that come early, leave early and finish all their tasks, nobody know what do they do exactly or what skills do they have, people assume that they are arrogant but the issue is that they come to work only for the money, this type is qualified but not highly motivated.

However; an average employee is a mixture of all these six stereotypes, so in order to be normal you have to be smart and have 5 disorders... ironic isn't it :)

Adi Nashashibi

The philosophy of positive reality

Last weekend I had to give my dog away because no one could take care of him since I'm not around all the time, Absy (the dog's name) added some new action in my life and now he is gone.

That same night - Sad and alone - I went up to the roof had a moment with my self, I had a distant view of faraway lights of houses, when it popped to my mind... What about everyone else!!!???.

No matter how sad, poor or lonely you are; many people would love to be in your place because as we all see everyday that life is no picnic , its a harsh human crushing time consuming obstacle Machine, Maybe we don't Fight lions to survive , but we swim with invisible sharks every second, we are never out of reach and we cannot afford not to be available! (or we can't afford to be free!) but have to be thankful because it is our right and duty!.

I'm sure I'll miss Absy a lot and i regret that I had him for a year and never took pictures of him -I don't know why I did that - but I know for sure that I went down from that roof a slightly different person - Hopefully a better one - I hope you do as well !

When time stops!


I think we all watched movies and TV shows about time, where someone has a special ability to stop the time, travel in time - like back to the future- or even wake up in the same day over and over again!.

well the idea itself seems impossible since we - all living creatures - are a complex function of time that goes to zero - death- after a certain time passes, so it is us that change according to time not the other way around, time doesn't change, doesn't wait and doesn't care if you have a bus to catch , a problem to solve , it goes on no matter how important or insignificant you are!. time is the only fair judge, don't you think so?!!

recently I had the feeling that time has a tendency to stop, work tasks are finished fast, and I wrote all the above and the clock didn't change at all!. am I the only one feeling like this?, the problem is that months pass so fast, I know it doesn't make any sense but what does make any sense nowadays?.

now that one minuet has passed ; I come to the conclusion that when you need time to pass, it doesn't and when you need time you don't get any, its all a part of the human greed system, that system that makes us think we are the most important, its OK if we were late, but it is not if anyone else is, I think its about time to stop all this mambo jumbo and go to sleep!

The Back Stage experement!!!


This week end I had to usher The Palestinian youth orchestra, I expected to see old people with a bad attitude , How ever I was shocked that the average age range of 120 musicians was 18 years old, some are as young as 14.

People say it takes a lot of hard work to make a good show, form what I saw it take a lot more than that, me and another 2 volunteers had to go bring food, tea coffee for all 120 people, I was hard to find 120 items of each product, it was hot, crowded and really exhausting.

backstage was a total bohemian miss, vocalists warming up together, others are changing, ironing their clothes, one violin player got sick and she had to rehearse before she went to the hospital, there wasn't enough space on stage for an ant to breathe!!!.

Lunch was served, I went home to change into formal, went back to the theater, and took charge of the front door, tickets were sold out, and still many people came to buy tickets from the door, some where lucky to buy refunded or canceled tickets , other had to go back home!.

The rehearsal was over, the musicians entered and the doors are now open , most of the people where not that young, My boss and his family came to the show, he loved the show, shall I be expecting a raise soon?...I don't think so!, what do you think?.

there were three parts in the concert, the first is a purse classical music part, the second the was a choir that sang patriotic songs written by Mahmoud Darweesh ( may God bless his soul) and the third part included Reem Telhemi, a beautiful voice accompanied by an astonishing orchestra and dreamy choir!, it was a great show , maybe one of the best!.

Spacial thanks to Al Balad theatre and the volunteers in the picture below.

a day in paradise


Today I woke up at 7:00 am, brushed my teeth, got dressed and got out. On my way to find a taxi . I remembered that i forgot to take my medicine -which if I didn't take I'd be coughing like a 20 years old exhaust-so i went back to the apartment after I told my friend to buy something for breakfast.

after I took the medicine I took a cab picked up my friend and went to work, the taxi driver didn't have change , so I had to agree to the rip off with a smile on my face!.

I arrived early to work , turned on the computer, checked my email and my attendance log, I found out that I had a leave on monday for 1:45 hours, and I didn't move a muscle on that day, so I had to contact HR to resolve the issue. I spent all day looking for a 4 digit number the number was 9402, which is an application port number... can you imagine!!!... all day.

I also was late for a meeting because the restaurant took so long to prepare the sandwiches and traffic jam, and the food wasn't even good!.I walked from work to home, It was a 50 minuets walk because I tried to find a shortcut!

Well; moral of the story is : I shall keep my medicine at work since i don't need it at home, I forgive the taxi driver because the same thing can happen to me, maybe 9402 is only a number but I'm proud I could find it, and walking is a good sport! ... I guess it wasn't just another dull day!!!

To Bid You Farewell!!!

In the last month and a half ;My Best friend Rami Came Back from the US. for a Visit, he did a really silly joke by surprising Me, it was a huge conspiracy , I hated him for doing that to me, and I will never forget it!

Most of the people Live and die without having a true friend , I Consider my self lucky with the friends I have, but once they are gone, I live in a huge Void of space, Just waiting for something to happen. I was really sad he left, but the great memory remains!

we volunteered to usher events, we even had dinner with Lena Chamamyan, A wonderful voice and character , played bowling, did stupid stuff and had our usual fights.

and this time was the time where we really had a blast, I'll miss seeing you bro, but I sure had the time of my life. there is another person I would like to thank for being in my life, however I'd rather do this in person.

Maybe some action is what has been missing from my life recently, and I am to bid another friend farewell too , Fadi; he doesn't know I know that yet, and I don't wanna tell him that, I figured that i stinck at goodbyes!

This post goes for all the Good people that leave fast.... cheers!!!

P.S. the name of the post is a song name by Opeth!

volunteer of the year


Living a life where career stress takes all you time and thinking, plus being a social person who like to have a good time, strange combination,I know but I found the perfect solution , the other day i went to Tareq Al Nasser concert at the roman Audiom , it was a great show indeed specially with the girl vocalists from tunisia and the amazing voice of Abu-Al sa3eed (who had the biggest applause i ever saw for a musician) and sahar khalifa .

After the concert I got an offer that I cannot refuse , It was to volunteer at Al-Balad Theater to help usher the events they have and make sure everything is okay.

The next day I was on the Audiom's door taking tickets and arranging seats, bringing ice, it was a lot of hard work but I enjoyed the shows as well, and the sense of achievement i got was incredible, I can't wait until the next event, I wonder what would it be!!!

Welcome me

Its been a while since I have been thinking of Starting a blog, A space for me to shout in, with acceleration of life, work and worries, where stress has become an everyday challenge, then it became a routine, we actually reach a point that we want to shout about everything, but when we want to shout sometimes we find ourselves helpless, speechless to the point we pity ourselves, is it human nature to get accustomed to things we hate to the point we have nothing to say, or are we too stressed even to scream?.

The first thing that occur to our mind when we are in trouble is " life sucks, life is unfair, Why me?... etc" but this is a good sign, isn't it, if you don't hold on to life or if you don't love life and the whole idea of being alive, you wont be upset! ... would you?

well I decided to keep the blog's Name , but i wont Scream, I'll celebrate Every little small thing in life in it!
