Egyptian Women's Day

In an attempt to appreciate women, today is the "Egyptian Woman"'s very own day. So let's pretend we don't get harrassed on the streets, or while driving..let's ignore all the demeaning comments we get from low and middle class men. Let's pretend, for a day, that we are appreciated.
On harassment

I am not one who is known to be cynical, nor am I of the pessimistic type; I am, on the contrary, very optimistic...but when it comes to women..Egyptian women and their rights...this has to end.

I found a pretty blog!

I am currently trying to put off the most tedious of all tasks, updating..or rather creating the online circulation list (work)..the list is an 86-page one. So it's basically huge...and it is so boring doing it! Very!

I have been thinking of totally changing my career..Apart from the recession..or rather as a way around it; the Egyptian Council of Ministers is offering a train the trainers course.You get paid 2000 LE a month for while taking the course (2 months) and then you get to be a certified trainer and your pay basically doubles (At least). Now, it is not about the moneym but rather the sense of accomplishment I would get. I think it is such a fulfilling career..I know economics is what I have studied..but then..uh! I don't know.
When I pronounce the word Future,
the first syllable already belongs to the past. When I pronounce the word Silence,
I destroy it. When I pronounce the word Nothing,
I make something no non-being can hold.
