We are who we are!

Nermeena - Thu, 08/10/2015 - 9:20pm
Never do the mistake of trying to define a woman who is neither willing to be defined, nor found. Women who have long lost the sense of what should be, and what would be. Could be is our synonym for life. We either can or cannot, and it all depends on our capacity at the […]

2014 Epiphanies

Nermeena - Sat, 27/12/2014 - 4:40pm
“I’m a free spirit who never had the balls to be free.” In pursuit of my passion for only one person, I lost the world..I have been revolving around the center of my heart barely touching base with the world and alienating almost everyone, that my phone now barely rings. I have lost and won […]

The Forty Rules of Life

Nermeena - Tue, 30/09/2014 - 7:17am
Disclaimer: this post will be updated every now and then, there are a lot of rules that I will get to discover along the way. 1- Never forget that your significantly insignificant. In case you forgot, watch the sunset or sunrise..or sit by the see. 2- There is no such thing like model answer for […]

البنات دول

Nermeena - Wed, 13/08/2014 - 8:01pm
عارفين البنات دول، البنات اللي هما لا حلوين ولا وحشين، النوعية اللي متشدكش أول ما تشوفها وتتعامل معاها كأنها هوا بس تتحب لما تتعرف بجد عشان جميلة من جواها وجدعة وشخصية كدة! البنات دول اللي لا هما AUCians ولا مؤهلات متوسطة اللي أهلهم علموهم “كويس” عشان يعرفوا يعيشوا بعدين خلصوا الجامعة واترموا في البحر ومكانش […]

بحبها و هي مرمية جريحة حرب..بحبها بعنف و برقة وعلى إستحياء

Nermeena - Tue, 12/11/2013 - 1:05pm

On alleged angels and demons

Nermeena - Tue, 17/09/2013 - 11:22am
This is an overdue post, that I didn’t want to write when angry or prejudiced. I wanted to put out the facts clear and raw as they are, not as they seemed to me early this year. Conclusion So I have not only forgiven him…I did actually ask him twice to reconcile, and by reconcile […]

Is Sufism IN?

Nermeena - Thu, 18/04/2013 - 6:55pm
It hit me during this Ramadan night, I was browsing twitter when I found people sharing El Halaj poetry tagging it #الخواجة_عبد_القادر , I was like people but this is Kazem ElSaher, chanting El Halaj’s poetry, there are no Abdel Kaders here, let alone khawaga. I then realized that it is an Egyptian series that […]

M for My Emotional Puberty

Nermeena - Sat, 09/03/2013 - 7:53pm
When he first stepped into my life I asked if he is here for “a reason, a season, or a lifetime”. “lifetime” he answered. While I was sure he is there only for a season. Now, I can positively tell that we both didn’t get that right..he was there for a reason. A reason that [...]

#EpicFail

Nermeena - Tue, 12/02/2013 - 12:08pm
I have been reluctant to write about it (again), because it is ridiculous…it is uber humiliating for a 30+ woman to admit that she has failed miserably in loving, leaving, and living. What’s more embarrassing is the fact that this person had the dreams, the will, and enough reserve of energy to turn those dreams [...]

on Crazy Girls

Nermeena - Tue, 25/12/2012 - 4:45pm
I am the crazy girl who speaks her mind and heart out..realizing that I am losing because I don’t play by the rules of a world I see as mediocre. I am the crazy girl who finds solace in ugly truth. I have been called negative because I strip the truth bare and reject unnecessary […]

Jeopardy Style: What is Abandonce

Nermeena - Sun, 02/12/2012 - 11:15pm
I always thought that  the word ABANDON is phonetically constructed in a way that tells the whole story of leaving….unregretfully. The stages, the trials, the attempts of picking up what might have been lost in between.  \ə-ˈban-dən\ As per Merriam-Webstar Abandon: to give up with the intent of never again claiming a right or interest [...]

On Peeing Statues and Kafka

Nermeena - Tue, 25/09/2012 - 5:49pm
Nothing could set a better introductory to the -well- perfectly Kafkaesque setting of Franz Kafka’s Museum in Prague as David Cerny’s “Piss/Pee” Statue. What on earth could be more welcoming than a couple of men pissing on a Czech Republic shaped pool!! On his take on Art, Cerny says: “Provocation is the amplified…uh…amplified reason why […]

*ولسة جوا القلب غصة..

Nermeena - Tue, 17/07/2012 - 10:33am
مع  كل نكتة، أو خبر حلو أو سجدة بتتمني انها تتمحي ويرجع قلبك بيضحك من جوة. الضحكة اللي في اخرها وجع بطن مش وجع زور مخنوق ودموع محبوسة.  مبقيناش بنعرف نضحك من جوة. كل واحد فيه اللي مكفيه، وكلنا بنلف وندور ونتحايل عالدنيا تضحك لنا –ضحكة حلوة مش صفرا- هي كمان.  العنوان مقتبس من ديدو Filed [...]

جريمة علي كوبري ستة أكتوبر

Nermeena - Tue, 03/07/2012 - 8:00pm
في جريمة قتل عمد بتحصل كل يوم وكل ساعة. من كام شهر بدأت عمليات اصلاح وصيانة أعلي كوبري ستة أكتوبر. بعد ما خلصت المرحلة الأولي، ابتدت مرحلة تانية من العك الرهيب..منتهي العشوائية وعدم المهنية. الفواصل الأسمنية بين الاتجاهين مش موجودة اصلاً أعلي منطقة رمسيس . من كام اسبوع كان في عربية بتتحرق علي الكوبري وكان […]

An angry letter to Egypt’s Political Activists

Nermeena - Tue, 26/06/2012 - 10:29am
Dare I say that I consider the rise of Egyptian Political Activists one of the revolution’s downsides?  I would actually take my exclamation to the next level and consider it a counter revolution movement to be perfectly honest. Let me start the love letter off with a disclaimer. This is by no means a directed [...]

Exorcism

Nermeena - Wed, 06/06/2012 - 7:57am
Yes, I did the mistake of wrapping my life around one person…for three long years (including the breakups). Yes..even during the longest one a.k.a the Grand Breakup, I backed off or literally vanished only to play the six months game that I was pretty sure he would resume the chase once it hits him. On [...]
