Of the pinky life of moi & miraculous equations

Well, the past period wasn’t all pinky, I had a few purple days..one cannot dislike purple days though, for A) life is a series of a pink and purple days and they correspondingly lead to each other  B) purple is tres a la mode 😉


I have to admit, that although I was super stressed at work, and had other-distressing- issues along side, yet what really put me that down was “disappointment”.  The thing is I believe in people more than any other thing in the world, more than I should to be honest.  (To my surprise or not) I was totally disappointed in many people lately, I don’t want to go whine about it for long.  I have to admit, it is not their fault, it is mine…coz I don’t learn from past experiences, I don’t or pretend not to see the Crystal Clear signs, I just keep expecting and hoping for the best -which is pretty lame and childish not to mention draining-

Note to self: new year’s resolution should be flexibility and learning from past experiences. 

It was like a huge engulfing wave that brought along so much despondency, but hey it is over with.


Off with the purple..let’s go pink!! 

Mama Mia + Meteorological delights =  Mood Booster

It was that very Friday when I went out to watch Mamma Mia with a friend when – in a strange turn of events- Autumn has decided to make a guest star appearance in the land of the Pharaohs.  Rumor has it, Winter is approaching…It is getting a bit chilly in the early morning and late evenings..well not so late evenings ya3ni.   The thunderous appearance was genuinely welcomed J, and has significantly altered the mood.

Note to you:

Dr. Seuss 2al eih: ” those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind”, so if you do mind..then you don’t matter, no!!  (not in that haughty manner that it sounds)


Book Recommendation:

Half of a yellow sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

The Laila’s I know are no victims…are you!!

Some women tend to victimize themselves, curse the day they were born in an oriental masculine society…and pray for a miraculous “change the birth” arrangement.  While the rest don’t.  Personally, I don’t subscribe to this “emra2a mahidet el gena7” pattern, neither -I may claim- the ladies am surrounded by at home, work, or social circle. 


Maybe I was lucky enough to grow up in a house full of strong passionate women who took pride in their own gender and embraced their nature.  Yet, away from home everyday I get to meet wonderful women from different backgrounds and social standards and I rarely come across one who is fond of the victim role.   But at the end of the day Egyptian Women are always looked upon as “victims”.  Why?


Am curious to know; as an Egyptian female…how do you see yourself!!
