Random Thoughts

Last week was bad, the general atmosphere was still tensed and everybody, including me, was nervous and stressed. I felt blue. Simple things no matter how silly they are made me sad.
To make things worse on us, the country is suffering from an electricity crisis. We spend many hours without electricity, doing nothing, just staring in the void and thinking of how things in this world are getting worse and worse each day.
Bathing has become a luxury, one has to wait until there is electricity in order to get hot water and be able to bath.
Reading in the light of the candle really sucks. I wondered how our ancestors managed to live like that.

Apart from this, I noticed a new campaign in the streets of Lebanon, March 11 gathering, and I liked that!
They're neither supporting the government nor the opposition, niether March 8 nor March 14, something in between: March 11.
baddi 3eesh ma3ak ( I want to live with you) is printed on this poster, with 1♥1, 7ebbo ba3ed ya jama3ah!

Another thing happened the day following the Ashura, two Shiite kids at school came to show me the injuries in their heads where their fathers injured them with a blade the day before and then they hit it with a sword :s. I was taken aback! Poor kids, How do these parents have the nerve to hurt them like that?! :s

Anyway, I posted some nonsense yesterday. For those who read it, don't take it seriously, I was hallucinating . I'm sorry if I made any of you feel bad because of it. Noura I feel much better now, and Averroes I read your reply and I appreciate it :). Ammar thank you for always being there for me, I appologize for nakedding 3aleek, I didn't mean to . Thanks to you I feel way much better now :)
