many don't believe me when i tell them the weird stories and experiences i go through.. and today is just another STORY to share...
no i didn't swallow any dababees.. and no i didn't get lost in a desert with more cows but well i saw AN OWL!!! i kind of have the feeling owls don't usually hang out on office windows!!
you know when we were kids i remember my mom used to use the word " ya bowma" to express how someone is nikdeh... : liesh mbawma lol that was always confusing to me.. why the bowma tashbeeh... up until today.. where i met the BOWMA.. it all made sense... now i can worry abt the 100000 other questions in my mind lol
bowmas tend to look a bit depressed... i tried to make it smile.. to prove all those ppl wrong... but ja7aratni :P
i thought of keeping it as a pet but it looks like it had the bird flu... for it to come to an office window instead of a tree.. major sign lol
so... i havent been blogging i know.. but you know the countdown has started.. i still can't belive im getting married! it feels like yesterday i was blogging about finding " THE ONE lol now that he found me.. its just too much info that i need to sink in...
i mean its the first wedding i go to where im the "3arooosa".. truth is im not really stressed out YET.. but i just feel there is so much going on .. too much responsibilities.. decisions.. deadlines.. people involved..and i know i tend to forget a lot.. and at this time my memory is very CRITICAL :S forgetting now might cause irrepairable damage...
you know how ppl say.. its your night.. do what you want.. don't bother with people because people wont even remember this night.. and no matter what you do you cant please everyone... that is what i have been hearing and i TOTALLY AGREE....couldnt AGREE MORE......BUT... the reality of the matter is... its not just your night... its FOR the people.. and there are EXPECTATIONS & there are lots of people who will interfere... lots of money will go to waste.. lots of arguments will arise... lots of unwanted advice..and so on... everyone means well... and they assume they know what you want.. or what is best for you.. not knowing u and them ARE soooo completely different & have different taste..
oh not forget to mention those calls or msgs i am getting from people i hardly remember or even know who say " oh am i invited?" & im like.. emm emmm (you know i7raaj kteer) so i go like.. yeah SURE... but in the back of my head im like.. WHO ARE YOU lol
I just hope i don't trip... & that everything works out because im this close to eating my COW!!!! :P
Anyway.. pls id3oooooooli ya nass.. i hope i dont reach that BRIDZILLA GODZILLA phase
don't you sometimes sit in shock at how fast time passes you by!! I mean especially on those days when you come across a relative or friend you haven't seen in ages.. but somehow you remember their cute little baby boy who once threw up all over you & then u changed his diapers!! So you ask how is your kid? they laugh and say well he is right here in front of you... and u look up to see that he is now TALLER THAN U! i mean HOW HOW HOW?? its just WEIRD! now its like i have to wear hijab in front of him and well it seems like not soo long ago i was carrying him around singing him " 7adba7lak 7ammaaaam" :P
have u noticed how the songs we sing to kids are a tad bit disturbing & graphic! like for example " 7adba7lak 7ammam".. i will slaughter pigeons for you! lol
anyway.. back to my topic.. TIME.. they say time flys when u are having fun... and i think it might pass by faster when u NEED IT!!
conclusion is... we waste so much time in our lives and we are simply just getting old people!!! :P
Any hooooooooo :P here is a really funny link i came across today! a jordanian cartoonist ... CHECK IT OUT :) Omar Cartoons
i love sleeping.. i can take a nap at anytime! i love weekends because i get to sleep in the MORNING! Anyway... even on those days when u finally CAN sleep SOMEONE or SOMETHING wakes u up.. like the next door neighbors having a fight or the sound of someone drilling a wall somewhere! or maybe even the smell of someone smoking in the house.. you feel the smoke is going straight to your brain cells... ARGHH
you try and try to ignore all those annoying sounds & smells... and instead of them going away .. they get louder by the second..you realize there is no use... you are now awake.. and furious... sleepy but " raaaa7at il nowmeh" can't sleep anymore...
im sure many of you have shared this experience with me at one point in thier life... or when you are in bed.. soo soo tired.. and just when u started to get comfortable in your warm bed..a very ANNOYING ALARM goes off!
You move from la la land to REALITY... U HAVE TO GO TO WAKE UP for WORK "lugmet il 3aysh sa3bah yaboy"! You sometimes choose to break the alarm or ignore it and go back to bed... but usually doing that too often will get you fired eventually!
Yesterday my dad had an operation for the "disc" he has in his neck... AL HAMDULILAH he is okay now.. recovering from the operation.. got me thinking about life.. and how we alway get so caught up in life.. so caught up that we dont remember God as much as we should.. or we do remember God but yet have a lot of contradictions in our life... we might even bend or break a few rules to make them more "modern" or "socially acceptable"
till one day you really want something and you also know its ONLY in God's hands.. you have always known everything is in GOD's hands.. but in that moment you feel desperate and pray more and say things like " ill never do this again" or " God if you answer this one prayer i wont ask you anything again".. an so on..
maybe you meant what you said and deep inside you know you might NOT deserve to get your prayers answered because you have been too distracted & have so many sins in your life... but still you know GOD is forgiving.. and MERCIFUL.. so you pray because you know HE is always there no matter what happens...
ive had ppl say things like " ill tell my mom or bint il jeeran to pray for me because i havent prayed in years!! so i would feel bad if i prayed now just cause i need something".. that is not how it should be.. God asked us to pray ... and we all should :) not only when we need something like a "job offer" or "3arees" lol
Allah KAREEEEM :)
186 و إذا سألك عبادي عني فإني قريب أجيب دعوة الداعِ إذا دعانِ فليستجيبوا لي وليؤمنوا بي لعلهم يرشدون " البقرة "
When My servants ask thee concerning Me, I am indeed close (to them): I listen to the prayer of every suppliant when he calleth on Me: Let them also, with a will, Listen to My call, and believe in Me: That they may walk in the right way.
Unfortunately the cycle repeats itself.. we all go through ups and downs and we don't always keep our end of the promise... out of weakness, laziness or temptation..
But i also know God created us and HE knows of our weaknesses and life is full of tests we all go through.
Prayers can sometimes make miracles happen :) Al hamdulilah for everything :)
so conclusion is..
" YOU GOT TO PRAY.. YOU GOT TO PRAY JUST TO MAKE IT TODAY" <-- said like a true MC HAMMER :P
Sorry i haven't blogged in a while.. been kind of busy.. but well the less i blog the more things i feel i need to blog about! You know how sometimes you are in a situation and someone says or does something and you say something like " mush tabeeee3i jad jad ABNORMAL" or " i CANT BELIEVE HE DID THAT?" or " if i was in her place i would never DO THAT?"
and we tend to get a bit judgmental when we compare ourselves to others and we get carried away with our judgments not realizing that they are nothing but false accusations we base on our reference to ourselves & our experiences..
We have to realize that we are all different.. not even 2 people in this WHOLE world are exactly the same.. we might agree more with some ppl.. disagree with others.. want to avoid a few because they GET ON YOUR NERVES :P
BUT we also might find a lot in common with someone.. and when we do meet that person we feel is our "LONG LOST TWIN" we tend to assume they are like us in every way.. when in reality they are THEM and YOU are YOU..
not ONE person is like you in EVERY single way... and knowing that.. we should ACCEPT that different people react differently..and ACCEPT people for who they are instead of trying to turn them into YOU !
And just because someone doesn't react like you doesn't mean they are wrong.. doesn't even mean you are wrong.. it just means you are different... different yet normal
And speaking of normal.. what is normal ? a normal reaction? i feel that there is no such thing as "normal".. the definition of normal nowadays is what is common... and as soon as someone decides to go against the tide or be unique or original... they are seen as abnormal or weird.. plus being NORMAL IS OVERRATED :P
id rather be SPECIAL ( not the special that is thrown in mental hospitals though) :P
3anyway... point is... each person is different and expresses themselves differently.. a poet could write a poem.. a singer could sing a song.. a painter could paint you a portrait.. but just because they are talented and have the gift of expressing themselves in better ways .. doesnt make their love stronger or deeper or more real...
i am a mother,:P talk way too much!!love art& illustrtion photography! graphic designer illustrator..try to be as religious as i can.. what else?
apparently im a rooster according to this Chinese horoscope :S hmm i adore chocolate.. explains my nick.. i should stop any CAFFEINE INTAKE cause im NATURALLY HIGH!!
