COVID-19 Reflections

It’s been more than a month since we all started working from home. At the beginning I was reluctant to the idea, and even concerned.  It was the beginning of March, I started feeling dizzy at the office, and my throat started to ache. I had to go home and rest.  The coronavirus, COVID-19, hasn’t […]

I wish I’m a believer

This is quite random: I wish I’m a believer. I wish I could pray right now, and pray for those who are suffering, for those who are ill, or those who are fighting death. I wish I can pray for those who have lost their jobs and their hopes. For those who are trying to […]

Keep going

Keep going. The path is still long. Yes, it goes far. You can walk, slowly, or fast, or even even run. But keep going. Yes, there are people. Remember, it’s not a race, run when you can, and walk when you’re tired. You can stop, surely to have some water, but then keep going. It’s […]

Shofouni Ya Nas / Look at me, people.

So I had a conversation with my friend about something I posted on Instagram, and we stopped for a bit, to discuss the answer to her question why I’m more active on Instagram than Facebook.  I want to clarify something first, if we’re active on social networks, whether it’s Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, for another […]

Busy people are not your friends

There are many people in our lives that always say that they’re too busy to meet with us. Fact is: they’re not that busy. And they just don’t care enough to make time for us. Resolution is: leave their busy ass alone. I know, it’s not easy. Letting people off simply because they’re busy sounds […]

January is the longest of months

Why does January feel like the longest month of the year? This month contains 31 days, and it is indeed a long month. But so are many other months during the year. Still, January feels like the longest of them all. And for some reason, it feels like it doesn’t end. So many things have […]

The Ten years challenge

I can easily just post a picture of myself in 2009, and another one from today, but why is that a challenge? “I challenge you to show a picture of you ten years ago!” I honestly don’t recall having any real embarrassing pictures of myself ten years ago, but I could find myself in a […]

2018 resolutions review

Last year I wrote some resolutions, which I updated in March, and now I think it’s the time to review those resolutions, and evaluate my performance in 2018. You see, I sound professional. Let’s hope I can excel in keeping some resolutions this year too. So here’s a list of the resolutions I updated last […]

Adonis – Bent El Hawa (song)

Why is it that when we’re young dreams are still allowed? When we’re young we’re allowed to dream and talk about our dreams. No matter how ridiculous they are, we’re allowed to love, be passionate and talk about our dreams.  Wish I can go back in time, and dream more. Without any shame. 

Christmas for Atheists

Christmas is a holiday that beats all holidays around the world. And it doesn’t matter how much you can argue, Christmas remains the most magical holiday of all times.  I was brought up in a Christian house, and surely Christmas was and still is  part of our winter holiday season. Even though we live in […]

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 […]
