Saterday is spelt Saturday

Sorry for any inconveniences this may have caused :)

Ain't No Sunshine When She's Gone

When she frowns, a cloud is cast upon our skies.

Saterday Recollections

There comes a point in a woman's life where the empty overtures of men, the abundant flowers, and sunshine of the world are equated with horseshit.

One is quick to state, "What an insolent and unworthy girl! She has the world at her feet and she still asks for more."

What is at your feet? Ultimate happiness for you may be a thing I dread.

My happiness will no longer be dependent on others.

If I depend on another person's wanton mood then how will I live my life?

My whole life, I sought the approval of family, friends, and the community.

There is a realization that I am living a life like a marionette and my master is the worries of "what will people think?".

Snip the strings that tie you before it is too late!

Are you stalking me?

Texas summer heat is here and the swealtering sun showed no remorse as I ran my errands on campus. The university landscape has improved tremendously since my freshman year. As I was walking to a review session, a violist in the music balcony was serenading me with her homework and I relish the two minutes before I had to imprison myself in another lecture. I passed by a good friend, who happened to run into me twice already...his reaction is: Are u stalking me? Because that would be great. I answer, "Today must be your lucky day!"

I am unsure if this is a Texan reaction (when you see someone repeatedly throughout the day) or if it is common in other cultures....but it is used often on our campus

This brings me to another afternoon coffee break with a good friend of mine, let's call her M. I am going to write more about M in the near future..but for now, M and I have been friends for years and she has showed me a view of this world that I would never have seen. I admire and consequently envy her. This envy is not the type of ill will that most people associate with envy but it is the healthy type that encourages you to work to have qualities like that person.

Today, she told me something that I would never have known about her. She, too, saw qualities in me that she also wish she had.

I never thought that she felt the same way about me. In ways, I wanted to be like her and she wanted to be like me. This type of yearning may be perceived as a type of negative emulation where we all try to have a homogenous character. I disagree. I see it as a natural yearning to exhibit qualties that we sense we lack. We all strive to be wanted and liked, so we want to exhibit qualities like intelligence, humour, and beauty to make us appealing to others.

My dad always tells me to surround myself with people whom I can learn from. These friends have shaped me into the person I am today.

When summer comes, I am going to attribute posts to those who have shaped me and also give an interesting biography of their lives...

Only In America

Guess what folks?

Today, I got paid $120 cash for giving my opinion. I swear. I am on a list and meet the criteria. I was fed, watered, paid, and asked to criticize and judge...I'd like to see this happen in Lebanon.

Only in America

Patience My Friend

You will have the world at your feet if you learn to be patient.

'But I am Lebanese, isn't there a hookup?'

Rude Awakening

Every word that comes out of your mouth must be censored, for you never know who you will piss off.
