Resolutions revisited

I’ve been thinking about something recently, and I want to write about it. Do you remember the new year’s resolutions I wrote?  I’m going to list them here again, and talk about what is it to be improve the self. 1. Lose weight (and workout more).  Only work out when I can make time, and […]

#IWD2018

Today is the International Women’s day. And for some reason, I don’t like making a huge deal out of this day. Perhaps because I’m fed up with all of the women empowerment posts on the social media, and all of the cliched statements that are recently made. You can go around, and feel like “Oh […]

Bullshit motivational quotes #1

So I found this on Facebook the other day, and I thought of sharing. Not because I find it inspiring, but I rather think it’s bullshit. Motivational quotes nowadays are getting out of hand, and started becoming irrelevant to our daily activities and our personalities. I do many things during the day, and I have […]

My home town, not my homeland

I should be entirely ashamed of my feelings. I should repent the way I feel. I was driving back to the my home town, to see my family. I do that every other weekend. The minute I entered my hometown, instead of feeling nostalgic I felt alienated. I cursed my home town. I cursed my […]

Constant race

We live in a constant race. Race with time, people, life, achievements and and self improvement. Why? Why can’t we just relax, and think about happiness for one moment? Happiness is also a race. Who’s happier? Who’s living their lives to the fullest? Who travels more? Who parties more? Who attends all of the events […]

(N)Ever Have I Ever

So apparently we live in w a world that wants us to dare do as many things as possible. I found this post on some Facebook group, and apparently the fewer points you get the cooler you are. Because everything on the list is adventurous activities you must be proud to “Have ever” done them. […]

January deaths

New year began, with January. New year’s resolution we want to begin with, but there’s no time. Maybe after we finish our current assignments we can hit the gym to work out more. And after finishing some papers and exams, we can read more books we wanted to read a while ago. There’s no time […]

New Year – not too much of a big deal

I was thinking about the whole perception of “The New Year”, and “new beginnings”. I was thinking about the notion behind writing New Year’s resolutions, and why we do that. I live in a country that doesn’t really make a huge fuss about celebrating the New Year. It’s considered a Christian holiday, and as a […]

December 2017 – Christmas and New Year

It was Christmas few days ago. And for some reason, I’m kind of glad it’s over. Indeed it’s the most joyous holiday or time of the year. But the fact that it’s considered the greatest holiday of the year, puts a lot of pressure on me as an ordinary person who has no idea how […]

When a door closes _

I’m not usually an optimistic person, I’m very pessimistic and I complain most of the time. But throughout the years I’ve learned that many things don’t work out as we plan, and yet we shouldn’t lose hope. When things don’t work out as we plan them, or imagine them, they don’t turn out necessarily better. […]
