What's up?
AIESEC Egypt is a mess. be continued
So, I was in Ras Sudr for the past three days in an AIESEC conference. Three years ago, I had attended he exact same conference as a new member, this year, I did as an alumnus.
I miss AIESEC to be quite honest.
And it was mostly a trip of nostalgia, chilling and appreciation.
Nostalgia for the old times, and the old friends that were there over the weekend; Mai Daoud, Hisham and Abdo.. All those who joined AIESEC in 2005.
And today, watching the sunset, reading a book and just sitting on the couch with nothing to do; chilling!
As for the appreciation; one of the most important people in my life, Mohammed (aka Jimy) I met in AIESEC, way back in 05 (only that we got together 2 years later). And I shared a room with my bestfriend whom I greatly appreciate as well.
Maybe afterall, AIESEC Egypt is NOT a mess.
The MC is doing a great job. Also, the conference was relatively a success.

It's chilly!
Officially so! I mean, even over the weekend, which I had spent in Alexandria(where it didn't rain), it rained! And it rained heavily for that matter.
First signs of winter: Blue fingertips. Yes, my circulation kind of sucks.
Anyway, on the 31st, I am supposed to be at Ras Sudr, attending an AIESEC conference, I'm kind of excited since it's Halloween and stuff. I was thinking of either going as Jackie Kennedy or a gypsy...or something..I might steal this idea as well.
I need to do hardcore working out this week, I have a wedding on the 5th (my cousin is getting married!) and I need to look amazing! It's from Mango, if I don't wear the leggings it would be..less cocktail-dress-esque right?
So, now I have two married cousins out of sixteen!

Sometimes the world becomes too much for you to take and you feel so faintly appreciated and everything is just...going wrong. It is this one long minute; when it all happens, that could ruin days.

It was that moment of anger, of fighting the guilt of not being there, replacing it with rage of being unappreciated.
It triggered it all.
It ruined it all.

There are also the moments when you're too arrogant to breakdown. Those moments when your ego fills you up, forbidding your mouth from letting the words out.
The words that would let it all out.
That would make it all alright.'re just on the verge of falling apart. And you'd do anything for anyone to hold you through it- for someone to hold you through it. Yet you would do anything for no one to notice.

Just wanted to wish everyone a good cup of morning coffee!
Heading to work; I need to decide on which jib to keep soon...
Later people.

Tonight is one of the very few chilled-out nights I've had lately. I feel like I haven't relaxed for a while, so I thought I would just sit back and stretch today.
I have been going to that school to help out this week, and I don't know if I like it. Well, it is definatly more productive and fulfiling than researching and reading the newspapers every morning for a job.
I've been going to the gym as well.

I don't know why I don't have much to say, I just don't feel inspired, I need something to muse upon; how about that?
 Last week, I bought 1984, even though I haven't finished the eye of the sun nor did I finish another 4 or 5 books. I have no idea what is it that is wrong with me.
I mean, last night, I had spotted a parking space and by the time I reached it, someone else had parked there, guess what I did? I cried! Yes, actual, tearful crying.

Thursday Things

Allow me to give this a try; down at iCiNG this happens every week!

One of my favorite tings include that it's the weekend!

It's the NINETH! Jimy comes back today!

My spreadable cheese and Tabasco sandwiches =) yes, this is what I eat all day.

Buying the papers. And the fact that Yussuf Botros Ghaly is chairman/president/whatever of the IMFC!

this cupcake actually.

Well, last night there was this very unstructured argument between my friends and I. It was typically about how things are here. Home. Egypt.
Will update later today. Now I got to run.

For the Love of Home

Masri | My Egypt, originally uploaded by (mO)² - Photography.

I just love the fact that I am Egyptian!
Lately, I've been wanting to explore further the home that I belong to. Go visit the Gayer-Anderson museum and the neighbouring Ibn Toloon Masjid.

I think I found a JOB! I'll update further on that later...

Such a great day!
Seriously! We left home at 5:30 am; me, my 2 sisters and my sister's best friend. Went to pick up my cousin- car broke down so we switched cars.
Went to the Masjid, and Oh MY GOD, seriously, you could feel the energy, the aura- nothing but positive, there was this happiness in the air. Met up with 3 of my cousins and my aunt- male cousin came to help me know what was wrong with the car. Fixed it!
me acting all bad-ass haha

It's just a happy day for me.
Driving peacefully in the MIRACLEOUSLY empty streets of Cairo, wind in my hair, glasses on, and my favorite of all flowers as an accessory.
I love today.
You could hear it in my voice.
I also brought breakfast home with me for the rest of my family.
I love today.

PS sorry for the fragmented post!
