#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 […]

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 […]

Rebloggoed: 50 Gentle Reminders For When You Feel Like You’re Going To Die Alone

Unsplash / Mikail Duran1. You might not have a boyfriend, but you are already loved — by family, by friends, by pets, by the universe. 2. There is more to this world than whether you have a ring on your finger. 3. Your relationship status does not define you as a person, your heart does. […]

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. […]

Bar Bahar/ In Between – a film by Maysaloun Hamoud

I haven’t seen this film yet, though I’ve heard it received good reviews, and for once the Arabic woman stereotype is broken. For god’s sake, people around the world think that Arab women are supposed to be of one kind, but in this film, as it appears in the trailer, Arab women can live on […]

In a nutshell

Jews and Arabs must admit that they’re enemies, and must find a way to live with that. Live with the fact that they’re enemies, and then later, if that works, they can start finding a way to live with each other.   The same applies to anything. Christians and Muslims must admit that they’re racists […]

I won’t wish you a Ramadan Karim

Every year I decide to write a post about Ramadan: either to wish my friends a Ramadan Karim, or just to criticize Ramadan. But each year I find no words to justify my thoughts and I keep postponing the task. It’s the middle of Ramadan now and here is what I…

Little Princesses are sick of society fucking standards

I found this shocking, yet I’m pleased. If you’re appalled by hearing little girls swearing with no shame, then maybe you can think of the society standards. And over think about feminism and equal rights in our so-called modern society. Facing a future where women are still paid 23% less than men for the same work, and […]

Stop Asking

How dare you question anything? How dare you believe others over your own original beliefs? How dare you question the people who raised you and taught you how to live? How dare you think on your own? You’re human, you’re not allowed to think. You’re not allowed to question anything. You’re only allowed to eat, […]

ISIS and Islam (pt.2)

I noticed I lost some followers due to my previous post about Islam ad ISIS. I don’t want to justify myself, I only realized I’ve forgotten to mention few things and I would like to add them to a new post. I want to ask few questions that sometimes I ask myself when I defend […]
