Most of you have forgotten

I would put a thousand JDs on it, most of you have forgotten. You felt so bad at the time, donating your facebook status, changing your profile pictures, writing notes, posting videos, participating in protests all around the world, donating clothes and money, even not celebrating the new year. And now what? You move on with your life, you might even delete the imagen561646064_1754908_6475 and the memory from your head. That’s what some people do. Right now I am both happy and sad. Happy that i still see a few people around me thinking about this entire issue, praying, trying to help, simply REMEMBERING. That’s all i ask of you, remember, don’t forget, maybe even try and fight. Sad that most of you have forgotten.

The other day my university took us on a trip to Umm Qays in the north of Jordan to visit a site for our next project, for all those of you who are new i study architecture, and so we took a bus and drove, drove, and drove some more with a couple of bitches in the back drilling a hole in my head bi aswat-hom il jameeleh :p. Il mohiz we drove and drove, we walked and walked and then we got there, it’s now my favorite place in Jordan :D. We sat on the top of this mountain, with miles and miles of mountains and trees all around us and the Golan Heights infront of us. The most important part was that i saw it, I saw Palestine :). Right there below me was Lake Tiberias (bo7ayret 6abariya). Right there infront of me was Palestine. I wished i could just walk the few kilometers from where I was standing towards my country.

Sometimes I wish i can do more, I know some of you will tell me that i can, so if you’re going to please provide that with examples other than donating clothes and money, because i doubt that clothes and money will ever free a country.

 Now this week, starting from tomorrow the first of March is Israeli Apartheid Week. Israeli Apartheid Week (IAW) is an annual international series of events held in cities and campuses across the globe. The aim of IAW is to educate people about the nature of Israel as an apartheid system and to build Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaigns as part of a growing global BDS movement.click here.    

This year, IAW happens in the wake of Israel’s barbaric assault on the people of Gaza. Lectures, films, and actions will make the point that these latest massacres further confirm the true nature of Israeli Apartheid. It is taking place in more than 40 cities across the globe such as Bethlehem, Birzeit, Hebron, Jenin, Jericho, Qalqilya, Nablus and Tulkarem in Palestine, Boston, Chicago, London (UK), Montréal, New York City, San Francisco, Toronto and many more. I was looking for Amman on the list, you guessed it we’re still sitting on our butts doing nothing :). For more information about this click here.

It's raining depression.

1196248924io01qoI woke up at 6:30 am to the sound of the rain, which hasn’t stopped since yesterday morning. No, it’s not fun anymore. It’s literally pissing rain – no offence God – (my spell check wants me to write offence with an S. I’m writing it with a C, fucking stupid mac). Anyway, it’s pissing rain and the streets are covered with rain and I haven’t gone outside at all. I don’t even have juice in my fridge (something that’s utterly vital for the survival of a potato couch as myself). I couldn’t even take my girl out yesterday >_> and this rain thing is starting to annoy me. I’ve postponed taking driving lessons too.

I love the rain, but too much of anything turns sour sooner or later. Anything that stops me from getting my daily fix of sugar doesn’t deserve any love >_>. Would you please stop raining ! According to my weather widget on my iPhone, it’s going to continue raining for the next couple of days, and I’m going to go insane!

This post is completely bullshit >_> and I’m just so pissed off at the rain. So until it stops raining or I get in a better mood, I’ll take a rain-check on posting anything.

Cheers.

Dee and I have been kinda disappointed lately. Ever since the lovely Miss Dee started blogging, our traffic has gone up. It’s always nice to see our “Blog Stats” reach high numbers but it’s still kinda disappointing when we don’t see people commenting. The following is a simple tutorial on how to comment when visiting our gorgeous blog.

comments

1. When you first enter our blog, please look to the right, and notice the “Recent Posts” list, that shows you what we have posted up in the past few days.

2. Do not hesitate to click on the title of any post you like. Once you click, you will be re-directed to the same post but with an extra few boxes at the bottom that ask for you name, email, website (if you have one) and a slightly bigger box for you comment.

3. If at any time you are unsatisfied with the comment you have posted, you can email me asking to withdraw it.

4. Do not hesitate in being an asshole/bitch in commenting if you don’t like what we’re saying. The point of a blog is to start these friendly fights.

5. Miss Dee is giving me a hard time, so please comment so I can get some suga, please !

6. If at any time during the reading of this post, you found out it was sarcastic, applaude your wits :-P.

Come on dear viewers, have more passion than simply reading our blog ! Get involved ! We love you all =P haha, yes if it takes ass kissing we will do it. Cheers to all !

Song of the week

It’s my turn for Song of the week wohooo :D. Lately i’ve been listening to this song over and over again, I think it’s very cute, both Jason and Colbie sound really good in it. I’m guessing you found out what it is hehe. This weeks song is Lucky by Jason Mraz featuring Colbie Caillat. Enjoy :).

Do you hear me,jason_mraz_-_mr__a-z

I’m talking to you

Across the water across the deep blue ocean

Under the open sky oh my, baby I’m trying

Boy I hear you in my dreams

I feel your whisper across the sea

I keep you with me in my heart


colbie4You make it easier when life gets hard

I’m lucky I’m in love with my best friend

Lucky to have been where I have been

Lucky to be coming home again

Oooohhhhoohhhhohhooohhooohhoooh

They don’t know how long it takes

Waiting for a love like this

Every time we say goodbye

I wish we had one more kiss

I’ll wait for you I promise you, I will

 

I’m lucky I’m in love with my best friend

Lucky to have been where I have been

Lucky to be coming home again

I’m lucky we’re in love in every way

 Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed

 Lucky to be coming home someday

And so I’m sailing through the sea

To an island where we’ll meet

You’ll hear the music, feel the air

I’ll put a flower in your hair

Though the breezes through trees

Move so pretty you’re all I see

As the world keeps spinning round

You hold me right here right now

I’m lucky I’m in love with my best friend

Lucky to have been where I have been

Lucky to be coming home again

I’m lucky we’re in love in every way

Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed

Lucky to be coming home someday

Ooohh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

Ooooh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

Oh and by the way I will be blogging in purple from now on, so u guys can differentiate between my posts and shadi’s, what do you think? Keep it like this or go back to black?

Moi is seeing RED

Hello people of the world, see I warned you about the bitching, and soooo it starts now!  Todays bitching class is about people :). angrywoman2

I call them people cause they’re not really friends, they are just people you know, you hang out with them at certain times such as university only for lack of better options. Mind you, I do look for better options but its not really working out at the moment :-P. Il mohiz (il mohem for those who don’t understand, get used to it you’ll be hearing a lot of it min hon w tale3 🙂 ) again il mohiz ino sometimes a person might be forced to spend some time with people who aren’t worth shit, thats how life is, I’m guessing you guys know lol. Now you might tell me that no one can force me to do anything I don’t want to do, and that’s how I live my life il sara7a, i dont give two shits about anybody but I’ve been told manyyy times how this will make my life much harder, so I’m giving it a try for the time being. Now to list only a few of the things that piss me off about people:

* Being skinny, lol.

* Being smart in class and stupid in real life.

* Girls wearing high heels to uni.

* Girls wearing tights to uni.

* Girls wearing skirts to uni.. you get the point :-P.

* People with no interest in anything what so ever.

* People who watch Turkish soaps.

* People who smoke (any kind of smoking if you get what I mean e7em).

* People who shout and laugh loudly in public places as if they’re dad owns Jordan.

* 5aleeji people especially the ones with cars , all 5aleeji people.

* People who go out in slippers with their toes sticking out there and the slipper either 10 sizes bigger or 10 sizes smaller than their shoe size.

* People who talk about people when they are the same exact way.

* People who have no opinion about anything in this life, and if they do then it’s a totally stupid opinion with nothing to support it.

I can go on with this for hours bas I wana keep some stuff for later posts. So it’s time for you people to share your thoughts on this, I bet you have some stuff you hate about people too so comment ibleaz :-P.

Random thoughts of today..

I’m sorry if this post seems utterly pointless and full of crap, but I’m a little hung over, lol =P. Anyway, today’s random thoughts include a couple of shitty things from Jordan.

1. Nickname bil 7ara : 

thumb-3618624

  Other than the many strange family names found in Jordan, like “Mlo5iyeh”, “Sabane5” and “Abu 5eit”, teens nowadays have really weird nicknames for each other, especially those who hang out in “7ara gangs”. For example, I was walking home today and this 14 year old kid calls out to his friend from across the street and says “Walak abu el rab!”, basically his nickname means “Father of God”. I’ve heard lots of others like “5ashabe”, “allah”, “ketchup”. Teens nowadays watch too much bloody TV. There’s nothing more influential than the fucking media, it’s fucked up everybody, young or old.

2. Stupid fucked up facebook groups :

facebook_logo

   So I go on facebook today and my cousin posted this picture for a guy called Yahya Sweiss, apparently he’s the new Jordanian dick that’s on Star Academy. When I saw that I was like “Ohh God, not another Qwaider”. I have no fucking clue why they make such a big deal over something so lame. He’s going to lose again, just like Qwaider, and then everyone’s going to mourn for a week. Get over yourselves! Who gives a rat’s ass about Star Academy, I can’t even believe it lasted 6 seasons!

[Link to the group]

3. People who don’t know how to argue anything.

debate2   I love debates. I love intelligent debates where people can talk about subjects they have different opinions on actually stir up a conversation. It’s a “conversation” which includes 2 sides, I talk, you listen and then apparently you don’t fucking reply. It gets on my fucking nerves! I can’t find a single person who I can finish up a controversial topic with and not have him say “Man, fuck you, I’m leaving” or “I don’t want to talk about it” or “If I start talking I’m going to hurt you”. I want to get hurt you bastard ! I started the fucking conversation ! Idiot ! Arghh !

That’s it for now, until the next time I’m either hung over or just plain pissed off =).

Cheers.
