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 […]

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 […]

Those friends thou hast

“Those friends thou hast, and their adoption tried, Grapple them to thy soul with hoops of steel;” (Hamlet Scene 1 Act 3 – Shakespeare) Unlike many people, I don’t have many friends. I only have few friends I try my best to trust and not depend on. I have few friends, not because I chose to […]

I Am Not a Stereotype

Sisyphus and the Arab Woman

In the myth, Sisyphus was punished to be compelled to roll and immense boulder up the hill, only to watch it roll down once he reaches the top, and to repeat this action of rolling the boulder, forever. The same goes for the Arab woman, she is punished to roll an immense boulder of traditions […]

Where no one accepts me I can succeed

It was the final day of the semester, few years ago, when I was still a student at the Theatre Department. I was one of those who never had any previous experience they can relate to when dealing with Theatre performance and arts. I chose to study Theatre because I was interested in the subject […]

Alternative Reality

I have seen this clip/movie a week ago and then I’ve noticed that everyone on Facebook is sharing it. It is a share-worthy video. Reality: women are harassed every day when raped it is their fault. If it’s not the case and I’m exaggerating, then please pay a visit to the middle east. Surly a […]

Probably the best Apple commercial

It’s somehow ironic, how technology has changed our lives back in the 80s and the 90s, and how it’s affecting our lives in the 2000s and somehow ruining part of it in the 2010s.

I’m no beggar

Check out my writing here He was a little boy cannot be more than ten years old. as beautiful as an angel, with a hidden smile on his face, looking at all the colors of the street, at all the faces of the nation. He holds nice balloons of different shapes and colors. “Buy my […]
