Shofouni Ya Nas / Look at me, people.

So I had a conversation with my friend about something I posted on Instagram, and we stopped for a bit, to discuss the answer to her question why I’m more active on Instagram than Facebook.  I want to clarify something first, if we’re active on social networks, whether it’s Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, for another […]

Election day: voting is a necessity

I know I’m not the most politically educated person, and I know that everything I say in this post will be used against me in many different aspects. The situation in Israeli is messed up in a way that every time you try to state an opinion, you get lashed out, and decide to stay […]

The Ten years challenge

I can easily just post a picture of myself in 2009, and another one from today, but why is that a challenge? “I challenge you to show a picture of you ten years ago!” I honestly don’t recall having any real embarrassing pictures of myself ten years ago, but I could find myself in a […]

Women can do any job

I found this on UN Women page on Instagram, and I thought it’s worth sharing: Women and girls can do any job–and as we progress into the future, they continue to defy gender roles in various male-dominated industries. .Like many young, educated Lebanese women today, Sandy is creating new and innovative opportunities for self-employment by […]

Feminism: we still need it

I had a friend (had, not have) who used to say that feminism is overrated, and that considers that prioritizing women empowerment has become an obsession.  He’s not the only modern modern, liberated, even educated man who has ever said that. Many men nowadays are frustrated by feminism, they claim it’s hardcore, and they strongly […]

Christmas for Atheists

Christmas is a holiday that beats all holidays around the world. And it doesn’t matter how much you can argue, Christmas remains the most magical holiday of all times.  I was brought up in a Christian house, and surely Christmas was and still is  part of our winter holiday season. Even though we live in […]

Suffocated by modern progressive society

I wrote before about being suffocated by many things in my life. I spoke about being suffocated by society, by traditions, by patriarchy, by Zionism, and by occupation. This time I have something different that suffocates me. Something that should in fact liberate me, or make me a great human being. I try to be […]

#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 […]

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 […]
