Weird Wonderings

so i have been wondering . . .

1- Why when we say "el7mdela welshukur" we kiss our finger and press it to our foreheads?

2- Why when something falls on the ground we say - la7asa elshai6an-?

3- Why when we say "yuma minik" we slide a finger on our cheek ?

4-Why when we say - 7arrah- we grind our fingers or our fist to our palms ?

5- Why when we want to "7areb" someone we slide our finger on our lips?

6- Why when two people say the same thing at the same time they hit eachothers forehead?


sa7 kalam my lovely cuzn sponty

7- Why do we knock on wood to avoid 7asad? shel 7ekmaa?

*and after tafling on papi (3an el7asad esmila 3alaiha) i gotta ask

8- Why do we spit 3an el7asad?

9- Why when we say -malat 3alaich- we put our palm to the persons face?

*conclusion: we have really weird cultural traditions

To Help or Not To Help

I have heard/read about how when people are in a crowd they are less likely to react and help someone because they depend on the next person to do it.
I never thought about it until...

A few months back a 26 year old American woman i know told me her story

I was really hungry, and it was around midnight, so i decided to leave my hawalli apartment and drive to the restaurant street to buy shawermas. After i bought my dinner, i noticed a car with two men following me. I stopped at a red traffic light and one of the men got out of the car and came knocking on my window, i ignored him and as soon as the traffic light turned green i sped off. They were still following me, so i didn't want to drive back home, instead i headed towards Plaza mall salmiya. Costa coffee there was crowded, many men in (making a hand gesture over her head to indicate a ghetra) were having coffee outside, and i saw a security guard. so i thought it would be safe to wait a while in the parking lot till the two men drove off. I parked my car and started stuffing my face with my shawerma. I rolled down my window to throw out the wrapper, when the guy from the car appeared out of no where and grabbed me. He opened the car door and pulled me out. I started screaming!! HELP !! HEELLLP! The guy started hitting me, trying to get me into his car! I could smell alcohol on his breath! He beat me so hard, on my face, my stomach, he started grabbing my private parts. I begged for help, but no one moved a muscle! The security guard was right there!
I don't know how I did it, but i managed to wrestle free and get in my car. i sped off and went to the police station. Where the cops where of no help at all, they could hardly speak English, they were rude and openly mocking me and laughing at me!

Now i wont get into the fact that our police force has a lot of short comings, i was extremely surprised/shocked/ashamed, that such a thing happened in Kuwait, and that NO ONE not one person tried to help that poor woman. Not even the security guard, who's job title apparently is just a decoration.
I apologize to that poor woman on behalf of the so called men that were sitting there enjoying their coffee while she got beat up by a drunk!

whats good about byes?
i HATE them
they say with time you get used to it,
who are they that say?
i still get the same feeling of nausea every time i even have to think about saying good bye
which as i said before has no good aspect to it
it should be called bad bye
bad bye to my sisters
bad bye to my parents
bad bye to my cousins
bad bye to my friends
weather i am coming or going there is always someone I'm leaving behind
there is always someone i have to look at, smile, hug, cry over,let go, and leave
i miss my friends
their half the world away
i miss my family their on a different continent
i miss i miss i miss
they who said you get used to it, are big fat liers, it never gets easier

i HATE goodbyes!
*cries for hours

My Favourite 9th Grade poem

Annabel Lee
by Edgar Allan Poe, 1849
It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of ANNABEL LEE;
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
Than to love and be loved by me.
I was a child and she was a child,
In this kingdom by the sea;
But we loved with a love that was more than love-
I and my Annabel Lee;
With a love that the winged seraphs of heaven
Coveted her and me.
And this was the reason that, long ago,
In this kingdom by the sea,
A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling
My beautiful Annabel Lee;
So that her highborn kinsman came
And bore her away from me,
To shut her up in a sepulchre
In this kingdom by the sea.
The angels, not half so happy in heaven,
Went envying her and me-
Yes!- that was the reason (as all men know,
In this kingdom by the sea)
That the wind came out of the cloud by night,
Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee.
But our love it was stronger by far than the love
Of those who were older than we-
Of many far wiser than we-
And neither the angels in heaven above,
Nor the demons down under the sea,
Can ever dissever my soul from the soul
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee.
For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And the stars never rise but I feel the bright eyes
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And so, all the night-tide,
I lie down by the side
Of my darling- my darling- my life and my bride,
In the sepulchre there by the sea,
In her tomb by the sounding sea.
p.s: its proven Drunken men are geniuses!

I wish I wish I wish

I wish

I wish I was a punk-rocker
I wish I spoke Italain
I wish I had the guts to change my major
I wish I liked my major
I wish I knew how to play the piano
I wish I knew how to play guitar
I wish I wasn’t afraid of cats
I wish I was a certified chef
I wish I spoke Spanish
I wish I could move to Italy
I wish I were a ballerina
I wish I could travel the world and seven seas
I wish I studied law
I wish I could take over my dads firm
I wish I could turn back time
I wish I wasn’t so emotionally scarred
I wish I could write the worlds greatest novel
I wish I would win the nobel prize
I wish I had my own chocolate factory
I wish I could buy my mama a house
I wish I wasn’t afraid of cars
I wish it didn’t hurt so damn much to wax
I wish I could fly my own plane
I wish I wasn’t afraid of heights
i wish I didn’t have to worry so much
I wish I was athletic
I wish I went diving more often
I wish I were in the same country as the people I love
I wish I wasn’t so shy
I wish I kept better touch with certain people
I wish I was flexible

I wish
I wish
I wish

I can go on forever
Enough for now
Bs ham

I wish
I wish
I wish
