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 […]

December 2017 – Christmas and New Year

It was Christmas few days ago. And for some reason, I’m kind of glad it’s over. Indeed it’s the most joyous holiday or time of the year. But the fact that it’s considered the greatest holiday of the year, puts a lot of pressure on me as an ordinary person who has no idea how […]

Stop Asking

We talked about Pavarotti and Frank Sinatra, until I started talking about the French chanson that inspired so many Arab (Lebanese) musicians and singers.

Easter – like all holidays

Yes, I do celebrate Easter. For some people this might sounds shocking for the fact that I’m Agnostic-Atheist, and it would sound like a hypocrisy to celebrate a holiday that I don’t personally have no beliefs for it. I’m skeptic, not at all gnostic – I can’t tell what’s going on. I personally don’t go […]
