Guest Posting!


The wonderful, wonderful Taylor of Anticipation asked me to guest post for her blog. I cannot begin to explain how happy and honored that made me feel. Taylor is a lovely person!
Spending almost in a week in Alexandria inspired me to write this.
Thank you so much Taylor!

Lately: The CC

So a group of talented Egyptians started a tumblr that is quite similar to and of course inspired by Thought Catalog. I am part of this group (even though I am not sure if I would go as far as calling myself talented, and I am sure I am not fishing for compliments!) and I would really appreciate it if you check it and let me know what you think!

And that, in addition to work, work and more work, is what I have been up to lately. Oh and this: 
I really like this photo of me for some reason

NaBloPoMo: My Favourite Quote

NaBloPoMo November 2012
I am taking part in NaBloPoMo! I figured this would be a great way for me to update the blog more regularly!

Liz was the one to introduce me to Beat Generation, needless to say, I instantly fell in love!
My favourite quote is one by Jack Kerouac, I am sure a lot people LOVE this quote. I can relate to it in so many ways;

 But then they danced down the street like dingledodies, and I shambled after as I've been doing all my life after people who interest me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!"

The only people for me are the mad ones, really. My friends are quite the weird ones, to be honest. I would love for everyone to share their favourite quote with me! Please do!
