Final Notice

Ms. Hala:

As someone whom has worked with those battling addiction, this story by Fiona Helmsley hit a very strong cord with me. Please read and share, it may save someone from this disease.

“As soon as the collection agencies discover he’s dead, they are going to drain that bank account,” John’s sister, Rebecca, said. “I’ll write you a check for the balance, minus a few cents to keep the account open, and date the check for a few days before he died.”

Rebecca had been handling all of John’s finances while he’d been sick, and I’d been impressed by how well she could sign his name; it looked a lot like his signature. Forgery is one of those refined talents drug addicts have that don’t translate well into any other world. One of my refined drug addict talents had been rifling through the dresser drawers and pants pockets of people asleep in the same room.

“Deposit it immediately,” Rebecca warned. “Collection agencies monitor the Social Security rolls to go after the estates of the deceased. They’re relentless, the vultures.”

The First Day of Spring

Today is the first day of spring which means it’s mother’s day in the Middle East..

To the woman whom has taught me how to love and fear God, why I should love others unconditionally for nothing in return, the appreciation of God’s creatures, how to be the one that listens but not to forget to speak out, being kind and generous all while looking too good for my own good!

HAPPY MOMMY’S DAY MAMA!! Love you, miss you, can’t wait to hug you, kiss you Insha’Allah!! xoxoxox

Happy Mother’s day to all the wonderful women whom have inspired me and helped my mama deal with the crazy child that is me! Know that I love you, miss you and have you in my prayers always!!

Hilarious Article on Dating by Ali Ashbaker

I just came across this hilarious article, Pickup Lines I Wish Guys Used On Me by Ali Ashbaker. This is seriously a must read for any young lady whom has hated dating for as long as I have or looking to date again after so long.

My favorite pickup line in this article has to be:

“Oh, hey.  You wanna have a Kill Bill marathon and eat our weight in popcorn while wearing sweats on my Love Sac? By the way, cool bangs.”

All of them are good and unless guys are a little bit more real and none of that surface stuff as Ali has put it so well in her article, dating would be so much easier. I prefer dating people I’ve been friends with first, even for a short but comfortable while, where all this surface stuff is simply unnecessary. With that, I will confess that as someone whom has steering far and clear from dating for the last 3 or 4 years, I’ve accepted dating again (more on that in an upcoming rant I promise). The reasons I accepted dating this dude is because he’s real, brutally honest and after the following conversation/exchange/pickup linish that took place at a New Year’s Eve potluck party we attended, how could I say no afterwards?

Dude: Where’s your share of the chocolate cake? Here, take mine, I hope you like it, it’s 3 layers and very rich.
Me: It does look good, you did good getting it man. I came to see all got a piece but yea, I’ll share yours.
Dude: I can’t eat that because of my stomach, but I’ll take one bite.
Me. Ummm… why would you bring something you can’t eat to a party?
Dude: Because you like chocolate, I got it for you really.
Me: =D

“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”  -Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets

Single and Proud – My Comment

My friend posted on my Facebook this weekend the article titled “Single and Proud” by Rasha Dwedar on the marital status Muslim ladies are choosing, specifically in Egypt. My friend ask for my thoughts and here’s what I had to say…

Skimmed through the article which is exactly what I saw in Egypt… girls dying to get married only to feel stuck. Some get out, some stay put because they don’t know what else to do. I saw a girl put up with a really stupid, idiotic fiance because people envied how cute he/they were. Now she’s married, with a kid, and dare not continue dreaming of going for her masters or her high school diploma hubby will dump her. Those same girls then always ask me why I don’t want to get married and my simple response, “what for?” I know what I want in my life, I’m extremely independent and don’t need someone to “order me around or take care of me”. Until someone out there can share my vision in life, has great ambitions to go further in life and can give two shits what other people might think, then I’ll consider getting married. Until then, single and proud!

Do read the article, “Single and Proud” by Rasha Dwedar, and share your thoughts below.
