late night Ramblings

Something is wrong with my throat. It's been hurting me at least once every week. It feels dry and achy, oh and painful. I must not forget the painful.

So, today was boring. I studied all day, I'm kind of on the top of school work, which is very weird for me. Maybe after 4 years in uni I finally learnt how to multi-task and spread my time??!!

The first month of the countdown is almost over, meaning that now I have 4 months left for me in this country. This is my last fall, and I will probably enjoy the winter before it becomes too bitter. This summer was not my last summer, coz that was the year before. I did get to see spring though, so I am happy. I get to witness the 3 seasons that do not exist where I come from for the last time. I guess this is the upside to everything.

Seeing that I am counting my remaining days here and everything, I have become a camera-freak. Whatever I see, I have to take a picture of. It's like I am trying to capture every small piece of this great city to keep for future use. Like I need a picture to remember Montreal?
Come to think of it, I actually do. Hahahahaha, Seriously, sometimes I freak myself out.

On a lighter note...

I am sitting with one of my friends in a coffee shop and this cop walked in. My friend, being the typical big/loud mouthed Arab he is, starts swearing at him and verbally abusing the poor guy. It went on for something like a minute. I told him what if the cop understood Arabic? He only replied by shrugging me off and saying that can not be.

Of course, and as irony would have it, the cop turned out to be Arab and he understood Arabic perfectly.

The look on my friends' face was priceless.

Nothing like a friend to really depress and bring you down. I was alright before this friend of mine came to say hello. He started asking about what I wanted to do with my future and what is happening with this khara professor of mine who just refuses to grade my deferred exam. It's like, I do not know, both the answers to those questions are "I don't know". I sound stupid saying them, but i reallly do not know. That simple!

God, I hate you Concordia, you inflict unnecessary stress and pain on us....

What I do?

I took a sleeping pill an hour ago. I turned off all the lights. I lay in bed, closed my eyes and prayed that today, I will get more than my usual 3-4 hours of sleep. What did I get instead? Mmmmmmm, nothing! I am still wide awake, I was tired for a brief amount of time but that has all gone away.

I neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed to get some sleep. Tomorrow is a loooong day. This just sucks. Ma baddii...

Me sad = (


I am my friends' "wealth"!

Is that not the cutest thing?!!!!

Me smiling like an idiot... actually, grinning like an idiot...

Oh well...

SO I was thinking, screw the Ice-cream. I no longer want. I'll just settle for a vanilla chillate from Second Cup instead. Hmf, who needs the half half ice-cream anyways?

Um..... me, I WANT MY ICE-CREAM!!!

= (

Feeling unlucky...

Is God playing a mean trick on me or something? Remember my ice-cream post earlier? Well, I was walking down the street and I pass by this place that i know for a fact has aplace that sells the half-half ice-cream I want. I went in, and the WHOLE place has CLOSED down. NO MOO ZOO ICE- CREAM place!!!


I am depressed; I am angry; I feel discouraged; I feel miserable. All that for what? For a stupid ice-cream that I just can't seem to be able to find.
Unlucky, miserable me. =(

Me sad, *sniff* *sniff*

My previous piercings

In case no one believes that I am a piercings freak.... this is what my ear looked like last year:


I HATE complicated computer things!!!!
I am trying to post a picture in my profile, so, I take Bloggers' advice and download the program "Hello". Hello?!! It does not do what it is supposed to. I can not post a single thing onto my blog, let alone use the whole "webhosting" thing.

Ramadan Kareem to all.

Build for yourself a strong box.

Fashion each part with care,

When it is as strong as your hands can make it,

Put all your troubles there;

Hide there all thought of your failures,

And each bitter cup that you quaff;

Lock all your heartaches within it,

Then sit on the lid and laugh.

Tell no one else its contents,

Never its secrets share;

When you've dropped in your care and worry

Keep them forever there;

Hide them from sight so completely

That the world will never dream half;

Fasten the strong box securely-

Then sit on the lid and laugh



Ok, so I confess. I am one of those wierdos that absolutly LOVES piercings. I'd get one every month if it is not for fear of them looking ugly in huge quantities. My other confession? I get bored with them just as fast. I love getting them, I actually go through the pain of being pierced, then that of the piercing hurting, then finally, the healing stage. Then, it happens. I get it removed. I'm a sick idiot, I know... but i LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE them!

My newest masterpiece =)

For a good two weeks now and I have been craving a soft, half chocolate- half vanilla ice cream. Unfortunatly, where ever I went, the machine was broken down. I decided to try my luck again today, so I went into Sucre Blue to get my icecream. Ofcourse, and as anticipated, the ice cream machine was broken down, it could not produce the half-half ice cream I wanted. So, I decided that it was alright. I was going to settle for the vanilla ice cream I do not exactly like instead. So, the guy walks over to the machine, and starts to pour the ice cream into the cup. He looks into the cup with a wierd expression on his face, looks up at me and says "sorry, this too is broken down I guess, it is not freezing". WTF?!!!!!!!

I WANT MY ICE CREAM!!!!!!!!!!! = (

love, love, LOVE!

I love technology. i am sitting in a coffee shop, enjoying a single long esspresso, studying, chatting, listening to "radio sawa" and blogging. Technology rocks!


Wow, this month has been a horrible month for Egyptian actors and writers. First, Naguib Mahfouz, the first Arab ever to win a Nobel Prize passed away, then came Fouad El-Muhandis and finally, Abdel Muneim Madbouli. Such a loss for the egyptian literature, cinema and theatre. Such a loss for the Arab world as a whole. Ofcourse, Egypt- and the world- lost one of its heroes a while back, Ahmed Zaki.

May they all rest in peace. May they find peace where they are. May God bless them and have Mercy on them.

My Walk with a Leaf

I was walking the road of life one day,
When I saw a leaf lying near by,
He came up to me a few words to say,
With a half smile and a sigh.
He introduced his little self to me,
His story, his life, his cry and smile,
And as we reached a faraway tree,
I realized that we had walked for over a mile.
And this marked a new beginning,
Of our everyday walk together,
I felt like a bird with wings,
Of which the leaf was the feather.
We soon started walking close by,
The leaf became a part of me,
If he were to wither knew I were to die,
If he were to bloom, I were to be happy.
Then one day things weren't so good,
I guess the leaf was tired of the walk,
He didn't behave like he usually would,
I knew that it was time for a talk.
We talked and fought while I cried,
I didn't want the leaf to wither away,
There wasn't a thing I hadn't tried,
To convince him to keep walking my way.
Then suddenly the wind blew the leaf away,
The time- right after Dawn wanted so bad for him to stay,
But I had to face that he was gone.
I thought about the leaf for long,
And our walks which I thought would last,
To pass time I read or sang a song,
But that too reminded me of the past.
And as I walk the path of life today,
I see many leaves lying near by,
I guess its time a few words to let them say,
And bid the memories of the old leaf goodbye!

When did that happen?

Although I have been forcing myself to become accustomed to the fact that I am leaving in a few months, I never thought about the minor detail: Graduation. I know, how stupid and silly. Two days ago, I went to see my Academic Advisor. She looked over my transcript, checked off the courses, made a few calculations, looked me straight in the eye and said "Congratulations, you are all set". Ofcourse, if I were a normal person, those words would have sent me through the roof. However, being the weirdo I am, all I felt was numbness for the first 10 minutes, then my heart started racing, my lungs were about to fail me, and I found myself experiencing what could be nothing other than a panic attack. Me, graduate? Me! I'm being released into this world, with what I hope is education sufficient enough. Me, graduate! Huh, when did I grow up? When did I imply that I was ready for the world out there? When did I say I was ready to come out of my cocoon? Graduate... Shit. I am graduating and can do nothing to stop it. I am getting older, which is not exactly a bad thing. Although, when I was younger, I remember wishing for Peter Pan to come and take me to Neverland. Sadly enough, somewhere inside of me that little girl is still down on her knees, wishing on that single star, for Peter Pan, Tinkerbell, Fairydust and happy thoughts. Maybe my Neverland will always remain constructed in my mind, the again, maybe not. I sometimes realize that that little girl with the impossibly silly wish is being smothered by facts and life. Afterall, we all know Pan never existed, there is no such things as fairies, thus, no fairy dust. At the end of the day, we are left with one thing: Happy thoughts. Maybe that is what will get us through life. Perhaps it is the secret to never growing up. So, I am graduating, and here I am analyzing the existence of a fictional character. At least I am happy with my analysis, no? Goodbye, Peter Pan, hello world. Goodbye Childhood, hello adulthood. I am planning on making you ROCK!
