  • I am becoming my father, since he used to be the one complaining and asking about the daylight saving. That’s what I do this times, the day is messed up and I just can’t adjust. Today I was in the office and I found it 12:15pm. So I went and prayed. I usually pray in the conference room so when I got out… I found H and R asking me what was I praying… then I realized still one hour to go.
  • Due to the holidays we had these past days .. I can no longer tell what day is it. for instance tomorrow is the Labor’s day and we are off. So I am feeling that today is Thursday. In the old movies they used to assess sanity … in a way that they ask what day of the week is today? , so if I was to be judged in that sense I would have been declared crazy 🙂
  • I had this urging need to talk to a friend yesterday, and there was absolutely nobody. One of these friends was probably upset, don’t know why… won’t ask. Even my sister had to attend an event in Zamalek and wasn’t there. So I went out with my mother and since we have already talked about nearly everything (we are very close) … the main issues were the weather and traffic.
  • I have had it from “Paradise Now” I want to see the movie. Will go see it and won’t be waiting for anybody.
  • A strange guy is bugging me calling me on my cell phone and insisting that I am Mye his colleague … I am not answering anymore, hope he gets bored. In return I am missing a lot of calls since my phone is on the silent mode.
  • S and her personal requests are unbelievable. I am even trying to respond in a way that is not rude but at the same time not friendly so she can get the message that it’s not my job but she doesn’t seem to care. Last Thursday I responded to one of these requests via a formal email and I sent it with high performance (that was me trying to be sarcastic about her trivial request). So she read the email and asked me to come over to her office to explain it (She got me 🙂 ).
  • T is leaving the company, I was glad to be invited to the farewell party although I am not going. Whenever anyone leaves the company I just begin to worry that it’s either my turn to move or otherwise the world will move around me.

  • I wasn’t able to watch the movie despite my efforts 🙂 , we went yesterday to Stars complex and among the six or seven movies there, Paradise now was to be screened at 9 pm or midnight. how annoying :). So we watched “Firewall”.

If there is something wrong, I wish I could be told about. People makes mistakes… I try not but I am human as well, may be I wasn’t wrong and that was a misunderstanding. Because If I did something wrong I would have recognized it. But I don’t. Why do I have to guess ?!!
I am a very open person and I don’t lie because simply I have always brought up to be a good person so there is nothing that I have ever did that I am not satisfied about. so… if accidentally I said something that might upset you… why don’t you tell me or ask what did I mean.
It’s always as simple as that !

Just felt I want to think about what I enjoy and I am sure there are still a lot of things that I can consider favorite, but here is what is on the top of my mind in a random order .

Nature
Reading: Qoran and interesting books
Shopping
Family gatherings
Cooking; special attention to the decoration and colors.
Photography and photo editing
Talking and listening; not always
I like everything very clean, neat and organized.
I like the words : sincere, dear, tenderness, faith, honesty.

I would like to have a day wedding myself, with very small number of guest.

It was this show on TV yesterday ,I don’t even remember its name but it was an attempt to get myself to sleep to get up early for work.
Anyways, there was a girl that has been so pissed of a colleague of hers for a reason and she couldn’t confront him. So she sent him an email and then she told her friend about it so she said “I used the Garamond font as it appeared the most hostile of all”.
I laughed so much because I do that except for the font thing, never thought about it ;). but my aggression is always reflected in the kind of extremely formal language I use, no matter how close the person is to me. I did that a lot let’s see with whom:
– My boss: asking for a raise, another time when I was upset as he talked to me once in a way that I conceived as yelling and that was unacceptable for me and I wrote that in an email.
– With (A), we didn’t seem to understand each other, we were too different. So whenever he used to say something that I don’t agree with or I don’t understand and I don’t have the effort to nag. I used to send him an email. It was funny that after his phone converstaions, I hung up … think a little, I used go directly to the computer and write him an email and sit for days waiting for a reply. (although I didn’t care that much, was jus trying to make it work out but I am now glad it didn’t)
– Today, (N) came to me and told me about a worker in one of our plants who passed away and that they are trying to help his family. So she asked me to see if there is anyone who is willing to share and help.
So here comes the BIGGER problem, I love charity work but there is a phase that I am not comfortable with; asking for money. I know it’s not for me but it’s just hard.
When I was young , I didn’t use to ask my parents for money. I was always trying to manage with my allowance. To the extent that they were always concerned about me as they know if I need money I won’t ask them. My mom used to put extra money in my drawer to ensure that no shortage will be experienced 🙂 .
So after some thinking; I sent them an email and they came and participated.
I think I am clear now why I have a blog. Yes I am talkative but there are things that I have to put in writing.

Egypt blasts
I can never express how sad and Scared I am , I can’t even cry… I don’t want to touch my phone, I don’t know who was there, It’s an Egyptian holidays and most of the Egyptians are in Sharm, Hurgada, or sadly Dahab. We were supposed to be in Ras Mohamed but we cancelled. Why are they doing that ???. I can’t watch the news.
I felt it after they announced there was a plan to blow up the gas pipes along the ring road, I pass by the ring road everyday in my way home, I was terrified but it just happened elsewhere.
Less than a year, there was Sharm’s misery and now Dahab.
Don’t know what to say ..
“إنا لله و إنا إليه راجعون”
Update: the panic is over, so please make do3aa for the victims and pray Salat El 3’a2eb.

Looking back … there were a lot of things that happened when I really didn’t expect.
I had them not exactly as objectives but as steps that I was planning to take, started going through some obstacles, tried to hold on … started to think it’s not going to happen, thinking od alternative even if I don’t like them but trying to surrender to the easy and available, realize how important my original plan was, feel its importance try again and pray … then BINGO, mission achieved 🙂
College, work, working at a Multinational, …working at the Marketing department.
I understand that there are way bigger and more important achievements. But the concept is the same. Anything happens if you really want it!
If it works with smaller dreams, it will with bigger ones.
The idea of living a fairy tale isn’t realistic for one reason. We make it unrealistic …not because dreams don’t come true. Or what we want is hard to be realized but because we don’t believe it can happen, why don’t we try… and even when trying, yes there will be hardships and we will give things up but this is life … everyone has a share, being willing to take more of something will result in a shortage in another, we can’t have it all.
So patience is required and keep visualizing how it means if we can make it.
I had a colleague who was so frustrated at work, he felt he is stuck and will never move from his place. All of a sudden he found an opening and he applied for it and got accepted. The offer was much better in terms of position, money and privileges.
I went to congratulate him, and to my surprise I thought I was happier than he is. I asked why you aren’t happy. He said “I am afraid”… , I couldn’t help asking “of what” , his answer was really strange, I will go and have the medical check up tomorrow what if I have virus C. it doesn’t have any symptoms…. I told him you know what, it is not what you are afraid of . you are afraid to be happy and live the moment. He said yes I am afraid to be happy, and I can’t help it. I am anticipating that something will go wrong so that when it does it won’t be hard. So I went like ,,, let’s assume that something will go wrong, how long will it last ? definitely not forever, so if you will have a problem that will last a month and before it happens you are worried and don’t stop thinking about how bad can it be, you are just increasing the duration, so you will be feeling bad for two months instead of one… he laughed and said “Qadar Allah wa ma sha2 fa3al”. what a relief ! ,if only we can have it in our minds all the time.
Another thing is that when you get what you want, the problems and hinders won’t stop. In reality, life goes on. We won’t be seeing “The End” written when the best part is realized. There is no guarantee that will live happily ever after but they sure will live and that’s a bless.
Allah is capable of doing anything, bearing in mind that everything is under the control of god, how can’t we expect to get what we want as long as it is good.

Yesterday was really hectic at work. I was trying my best to leave on time as I was going to meet Rain, Moon and Nerro. That really gave me a push.
Then came the best part of the day. By the time I arrived at the Café the girls were there.
I was so happy to finally meet them in person. they are just like their blogs; Rain is calm, mature and sweet and Moon is active, amusing and has a lovely personality.
I personally didn’t feel that I am meeting them for the first time, we talked about a lot of things and we laughed. The blogs were one of the main subjects and bloggers as well ;).
Hope we can make it again isA.
Many thanks girls.
