A piece of my mind - Thu, 08/01/2015 - 9:46pm
You said you were different. You kept saying you'll be my rock, always there for mr when I need you. But on the first sign of emotions, you run and hide. Please remind me again how you think you're different! The way I see it, you're all interested in the hunt, just the hunt. Good thing I never let those walls down. I'm out

Strong Woman

A piece of my mind - Tue, 30/12/2014 - 9:08pm
I came across this quote about a week ago, it touched me so deep, that I saved the image, and  kept re-reading it over and over again until I figured out why it resonated so much. Let's leave feminism on the side, that's not the point here. Let's just focus on strength. Strong women are just awesome! I'm not talking about successful career women, not presidents of nations.. I'm talking about

Updates on 2014's Resolutions

A piece of my mind - Sat, 27/12/2014 - 6:51pm
Around this time last year, I wrote a few blog posts; - I was fascinated by the concept of the "femmes fatales", little did I know that the twists and turns of time can turn me into one when I was not looking. I am not (or at least trying not to be) a manipulative bitch, but one has to admire the power women can have over men and how to exercise it. Evil? Don't think so. Powerful? You bet! - I

It's all new to me

A piece of my mind - Sat, 27/12/2014 - 5:51pm
I'm in that state when I don't know myself anymore. I used to be tense when in silent, but now I appreciate silence more than words most of the time. I used to understand how I feel about different things/people/plans/places but so far, I don't even have feelings towards most things. I am used to knowing, now the most common thing I say is "I don't know". And I'm used to being emotional, now I

وفي النهاية... الرقيقة دائما تنتصر

A piece of my mind - Tue, 16/12/2014 - 6:54pm
  المشكلة الحقيقية هي أن الرقيقة خدعتهم كلهم، هي الأقوى رغم انف من يجرأ ان يقول غير ذلك. رغم كل شئ تجرأ على التخيل والحلم والحب. رغم الجرح الذي لم يلتئم بعد. رغم محاربة الكل. في النهاية... الرقيقة دائما تنتصر

I give up

A piece of my mind - Tue, 18/11/2014 - 8:48pm
As a control freak, as a fighter, as someone who thinks I will always find I way if I try hard enough, it's incredible for me to say it, but I give up. I really give up; I tried everything I could and there's nothing more I can think of to get out of this.I spent the last 2 hours crying, yes, me crying; real tears, a first since 2007. And contrary to what I thought, no it doesn't feel better, I

A piece of my mind - Sat, 15/11/2014 - 12:40pm
I miss you. It doesn't go away I hate you for getting that deep under my skin. God only knows the lengths I go through to get you out of me. The world isn't big enough for both of us, one of us has to die. I'm not suicidal. I'm not depressed. I'm just being pragmatic.

Begin Again - A Movie

A piece of my mind - Wed, 12/11/2014 - 8:59pm
It's been ages since I fell in love with a movie. It's a musical, so if that's not your cup of tea, don't bother. The songs are just incredible. The cast is great; Mike Ruffalo, Kiera Knightley and guess who... Adam Levine from Maroon 5 ...wink wink (my wink is actually at Ruffalo but I'm humouring you). Oh , and the director is the same guy who direct "Once", another awesome musical movie.

Of Tinder - and What we find out about ourselves on the way

A piece of my mind - Thu, 23/10/2014 - 6:27pm
Note: If you haven't read yesterday's post, then you'll be a little disconnected but you can proceed anyway. So Ahmed, 35, sent a messaged me last night. His message was an ok icebreaker, except that it was written in poor English. It's not like I'm the queen of spelling or a grammar whiz, but when you use "gonna" without an "am" , and "not sure too" instead of "either", umm, you sort of turn me

Of Tinder - and All the Lengths People Go Through to Find Love

A piece of my mind - Wed, 22/10/2014 - 7:11pm
On, Amira-the-brave, went through the effort of trying out "Tinder" for the rest of us. She registered a profile, checked out some people (and weirdo creatures), and even started talking with a guy or two. Nothing solid yet, it's just a experimental phase. That was a spark. See, I was already curious about it to the extent that I actually wanted to start a dating website at some

When Love Died

A piece of my mind - Sat, 04/10/2014 - 5:23pm
Yes, love died, about a year ago. No body knows exactly when, but it was sometimes early September or late August. Can you imagine something as big as love dying and no one noticing? Well, people did notice, in a way or another, but rather they couldn't possibly imagine that love , could in fact, die! For some, it changed into other feelings; feelings that could have usually be confused with love

Of Extinct Animals

A piece of my mind - Thu, 18/09/2014 - 2:36pm
I posted this on Facebook, saving here for safekeeping. I'm obsessed with extinct animals lately. No the animals themselves of course, I'm no zoologist, but the concept of going extinct and how it must feel. I don't think it happened by chance, I mean the animals must have known; wether they didn't catch Noah's ark or froze in an ice age, they must have known. I imagine the following scenario,

500 Days of Summer

A piece of my mind - Sat, 13/09/2014 - 7:13pm
I think I read it's plot on Wikipedia a long time ago (a sad habit I have), but have always delayed watching it (mostly coincidence but sometimes consciously). I think I didn't want to watch a movie that confirms my fears. It hurts when it's confirmed movies, you see, cause they usually let you dream. So when they say it straight to your face, it really hurts.Tom fell in love with Summer, but for

A good life = financial independence + emotional independenceI have neither

A Good Day

A piece of my mind - Mon, 08/09/2014 - 8:26pm
It's been a looooong time since I had this feeling of satisfaction (alhamdulilah). Today was full day stacked with one thing after the other, but as I sit in bed ready to sleep, I think, what a marvelous day!I wake up super-early, study for 3 hrs, and actually learnt a couple of new tricks. (Wish me luck, the exam is on the 30th)Work work work! Busy with meetings (good ones), proposals and

I wasn't gonna blog but!

A piece of my mind - Tue, 19/08/2014 - 2:00pm
I wasn't gonna blog. But I saw this being shared on Facebook and it just hit where it hurts. You didn’t love her. You just didn’t want to be alone. Or maybe, maybe she was good for your ego. Or maybe she made you feel better about your miserable life, but you didn’t love her, because you don’t destroy the person that you love. Grey's Anatomy 

Trial period

A piece of my mind - Thu, 24/07/2014 - 11:27am
A good friend gave me a good reason (for the first time ever) why I shouldn't be so public about my feelings (mostly people in the past gave the lousiest reasons, really!).Now the trick is that I'm a very public person, and I really like sharing and getting feedback and so forth, so I'll substitute my "personal" and "emotional" blogging from fashion rants , foodie talk and possibly travel. Mostly

A familiar feeling

A piece of my mind - Tue, 22/07/2014 - 7:41pm
I have felt this weight on my chest before. This incredible suffocation and heartache, I know it, although not common, it's rather familiar. It's the bottom line, the end, it's the sign. It is the darkness, right before dawn. Because as familiar as this painful feeling is, as optimistic as it makes me. Khalas, the only way from here is up. I only need a moment before I jump. I'm coming...

The Saddest Poem by Pablo Neruda

A piece of my mind - Thu, 17/07/2014 - 9:00pm
I can write the saddest poem of all tonight.Write, for instance: "The night is full of stars,and the stars, blue, shiver in the distance."The night wind whirls in the sky and sings.I can write the saddest poem of all tonight.I loved her, and sometimes she loved me too.On nights like this, I held her in my arms.I kissed her so many times under the infinite sky.She loved me, sometimes I loved

Good things come

A piece of my mind - Sun, 13/07/2014 - 11:19pm
There's a saying, "good things come to those who wait"Honestly, nothing pisses me off more than this saying. Wait?! Wait and do what?! 2a23od keda 7atta 2eedi 3ala khadi w waiting!That is so passive!The days where I have to wIt for a phone call or email kill me. Imagine waiting for unknown "good things". Won't ever happen, patience is obviously not my strongest virtue.That said, I'm forced into a

ادعوا لهم وادعو لي

A piece of my mind - Fri, 11/07/2014 - 9:33pm
قلبي بيتقطع كل يوم لما بفكر في الاسعار الهبل اللي بقت حولينا و بفكر الغلابة هيعملوا ايه. وانا كواحدة عندي هوس السيطرة(  كنترول فريك) الموضوع بيتعبني اكثر كمان لأني عرفة اني مهما عملت مش هعرف اغير حاجة. اسوء حاجتين في الدنيا ان الواحد يشوف ضناه جعان او مريض و مش لاقي حاجة يعملها له لأنه ببساطة ممعاهوش ثمن الأكل او العلاج. بيتقطع قلبي خاصة في رمضان وانا بجيب صنية كنافة بالشوكولاتة ب٢٠٠ جنيه  وانا

Let's talk about strength

A piece of my mind - Sun, 06/07/2014 - 9:06pm
انت أقوى من كدهأكيد مش الموضوع ده اللي مزعلكمش حاسة انك مكبرة الموضوع شويةYou're just pms-ingYasmine, be strong!It's probably just stress.That's what you all say, isn't it?You have a certain definition of what strength is and since you define me as a strong woman, then I'm expected to fit in the mould you've created of what a strong woman should be.Well, I'm not sorry to disappoint you, but here
