I got this broadcast on my BlackBerry this morning:

“MassCreation would like to invite you to watch our interview on Al-watan TV. Abdullah Al-sunosee and Jasem Burhahma with great announcer Salman Al-njady in Taw Alail at 10:30pm 29/12/2009″

And I thought.. Why not give my friend’s recently founded business a little more exposure? While Abullah got lucky and was accepted to major in Mass Communication, Jasem got stuck with an English major. However, that didn’t stop him from co-founding a business with his friend and coming up with impressive videos and designs proving that the Mass Communication major lost his talent. Their work and contact information can be found on their website: http://www.masscreation.net/

Check out their website, watch the interview, and give feedback under this post.

On a different note,

We still don’t have plans for New Year’s Eve. Any fun suggestions?

SCENE 1

Setting:

Day 5 of Film Week. Theatre seats. Discussion after the film, The Namesake.

Girl raises hand and receives microphone. After a long introduction, she says something along the lines of, “… however, my question is, I can understand why the Indian boy he falls in love with the American girl, you know, because she is blonde and White.. but why does she does that? Why does she fall in love with the Indian boy? He is Indian.”

African-American man and Asian-American man in the seats in front of us are offended.

Host asks if anyone wants to answer the girl’s question. Guy raises hand and is handed the microphone. His answer? “Because he is not really Indian. He was born in American and lived his whole life there. It’s not like he was born in India and lived half his life there before coming to America.”

Great answer. Couldn’t have said it any better.

SCENE 2

Setting:

Lunch invitation. The sun has set. Great company. Great weather.

Discussion revolves around heels and whether or not they are unhealthy. Personally, I can’t live without them. I don’t care much for risks that are unlikely. Example used to develop the argument is smoking. I say that I am not for or against smoking.

Reaction? *GASP* “Ana kent a7ebich gabel la etgouleen hal kelma.”

I explain that I don’t care much for smoking. If a loved one decides to smoke, I would advise them but only because I care for them and not because of whatever act it is that is harming them.

My argument is refused. It is a shade of grey. I never realized I had to make it either black or white for it to be accepted.

In the passenger seat of the car, the driver seat taken by the love of her life, she sits exhausted. She shares silences with him and bits and pieces of random conversation when her eyes are open, but when her eyes are closed, even gently, she finds herself taken back into her past – which is several years back and several hours back all at different moments.

She remembers eating two massive stuffed black mushrooms at Gaucho Grill across from one of her favorite people in the world. She remembers talking about a book. What was it? Reading Lolita in Tehran. She remembers laughing so hard at something A said that she tripped in her new metallic gold heels on her way out. And she remembers telling the valet to read the book. Her eyes open.

They are about to go under a bridge. She tells her loved one about her days at the library. How she decided to dress down and kick back. From covering up to stripping down. From sitting on a chair to sitting on the tiles under a window. From heated discussion to silent reading. The gradual descend to this comfort created a strong bond. She loves him so much it hurts. That’s how she described it to her companion in the driver’s seat. In this case, she understood that phrase. Because that’s exactly how it felt. She closes her eyes again.

She remembers watching herself sitting on a window sill waving to her elder brother as he walked out of the fences of their mansion. Her eyes open as the car slows down. Something interrupts this flashback. There is an accident on the road. A man lying on the gravel. Neck and chest area covered in blood. She remembers another accident. She tells her companion about it. She can see it with her eyes open. A bus smashes into/runs over around a dozen motorcycles. The next morning, she wakes up in the foreign country. Picks up the foreign newspaper from outside her hotel room, and sees the picture. She cuts it out and puts it in her notebook. She recalls that she cried. She can’t really remember why.

She believes today is a good day. She read 147 pages of a good book, texted back and forth with T, discussed the pages she read, had good food, and a strange car ride home. And he was with her all along. That’s what matters. One more thing would make this day an even better one..

She reaches home and decides to write this very post. A post about that strange between the worlds-car-ride. She opens up her laptop, places it on her lap, and types away effortlessly..

Eid?

Yes, I’ll save you the excuses. I’ve been bored, unemployed, and sick. Yay?

Proof that I will be a bad mother:

I went to Johnny Rockets with The Hubsand, my sister-in-law, her husband, and their two kids. We decided to sit outside because the weather was great, cool breeze and all. We ordered, our food came, and we started eating. All was going perfectly well when two slinky cats show up. The younger of the two kids stands on the chair and starts crying because he’s scared of the cats. In attempt to get him to sit down and understand that there’s no point in him standing on a chair and falling off if the cat gets close and he panics, what did the Amethyst say?

Sh7aga wagef 3ala elkersi?! Ya3ni ma tadri ena elga6wa tegdar etne6 3alaik?!”

“Why are you standing on the chair?! Don’t you know that the cat can jump high enough to reach you?!”

Of course, the kid freaked out more and started screaming loudly for us to take him home. I mean, really? Did I have to say that? Where’s the logic? It scared the shit out of him! Sigh..

One of the waiters dedicated himself to shooing away the cats when they got close, but it was no use. I’m just glad he slept without any nightmares.

Happy Birthday, HAJ! Hope you enjoyed your birthday picnic;*


Happy Birthday, Hussain! <3

So, I’m done. Soon, I’ll have a BA in English Literature. And I’m sitting here in my silk robe watching/hearing Grey’s in the background and eating a popsicle..

What next? I don’t know.. I just might go crazy with so much time on my hands!

Acknowledgments:

N.

I love that you were there for the last year. I’m so glad you were. I can’t imagine what it would have been like without you to come home for/to. I know you’re proud, and I love you baby;*


My jam3a buddies, Hanan. F. Phawaz. Angel. Sou. Hussain. Aj. Nu. Enchanteurs. JB. Dana. and everyone else..

I really couldn’t have done it without you guys. Love all the crazy times. I don’t know how you put up with my bitching about classes! Love you loads!;*


The rest who don’t have blogs and don’t really read mine:

Mom, Daddy, my bros.. You guys made it harder for me to get through it all. I had to do my work and yours, but doing your work gave me a break from doing mine.. so it worked out fine.


My two besties, Haj and H.H.

Nothing to say other than I’m grateful for your existence!;*

I terminated my gym subscription this week, and I miss spinning!;(

I love that class! It is the perfect exercise. You exercise your whole body and have fun at the same time. I’m actually thinking about buying two spinning bikes and forcing the hubsand into spinning with me. Hmm.. Okay, too many evil thoughts there!

But seriously, everyone has to give it a shot!

Enough for now.. I’m rusty on writing posts..

So, I decided not to post a lengthy response on the previous post. I did not like that e-mail at all. It’s sad that people have been spreading it around. Really.

So, I’m going to officially be done with classes on Thursday. I’m doing paper and signature steps towards having a BA in English Literature as an official document. Yes, I’ve been busy. But I’ll be back in full force soon. Starting this post.

Random Updates

I was called a whore in class. Disrespectful. Yet, not surprising at all. And NOT because I am a whore.

I have learned that I hate Semantics. Really hate it. With a burning passion.

My love for flip flops is now much greater than what it used to be.

I need to lose weigh I don’t think I’m a cow, but I will be if I don’t lose a good bit before I take the next step.

Spinning classes rock.

I want a job as an editor. Badly. Very badly.

I love being in love more than falling in love.

I need more Grey’s before I’m done with season five. I do!

My parents are being mean to me. As in blatantly mean. Not even trying to hide it.

Playing cards is a good way to waste time. And a fun one.

I think I should stop and go to bed.

I have a Semantics quiz tomorrow. I didn’t study for it.

Wasabi with Sou. Another thing to look forward to.

Hmm..

So, my blog has been conquered by the oneortheother domain. It’s okay. I’m still an individual with my own thoughts… which is why I have to make something super clear. N.TheEverything believes in the following quote from his blog:

Life is a series of choices. Every step is a choice, an option, a decision. We try our best to make these choices based on what we know. What we pick may not be based on what is right and what is wrong, but what we believe in our minds and hearts. Whatever we do decide, we have to compromise. It is always one or the other.

As always, I have to disagree. Nothing to me is one or the other. Actually nothing is just one thing. I am a big fan of deconstruction. A huge fan of deconstruction. And multiplicity. So, no, I don’t believe in one or the other. I believe that if I see something as one thing, you can see it as another.

So, what do you think? One or the other? Or one and another?

Clearly, I’ve been busy. Really busy. Seven classes killed me. I just didn’t have time to blog. I was totally exhausted. It’s not the first time I take seven classes, but these weren’t merciful at all. Four of the classes were in Arabic, obviously not of my major. One was Human Rights in English, and only two were major classes. Even the major classes weren’t merciful. Four hundred level painful theoretical analytical mind digesting classes. So, yes, I disappeared. But really, am I to be blamed? All I would’ve done if I were to post is complain. Be thankful I saved you from the torture of yet another set of complaints in the blogging world. Sigh. Yeah, enough of my excuses. I had no right. I know. But I didn’t feel missed. Thanks to you.

So, what have I been up to?

I’ve been addicted to my BlackBerry. Anyone want my PIN?

I watched all of Sex and The City plus the movie as a very successful method of procrastination.

I’ve been dragged to social obligations.

I’ve been talked into watching Grey’s Anatomy. Don’t spoil it. Really.

I’ve been buying books and eating sushi until I’m broke.

I’ve been to Swair’s wedding, which was great:)

Oh, and I’ve been gaining weight. In reality, I’m losing, but my mom is insisting that I’ve gained, so I’m joining a really cool gym I checked out two days ago.

I’ve been seeing a lot of Sou. Thank the lord. I need her around to keep me sane, but I don’t think she knows that.

I’ve been up to more. But the other stuff is boring.

One more thing.. Yes, I’m not done. Shush!

I’m tweeting here. Follow my daily life if you want.
