My 6 quirks

I’ve been tagged by Operon few weeks ago. It has been on my mental checklist for some time, so here it is:

  1. My favorite drink is tea with fresh mint, however, tea with mint (the packets) makes me sick
  2. I have always dreamt of having a grandmother like Julie Andrews 🙂
  3. I joined the school yearly talents show when I was young. I have a very bad voice, how on earth did I do that!!
  4. I try to remember my dreams, I feel like watching a movie 🙂
  5. For the second time in my life, I have absolutely no idea what I will do next (the first time was right after finishing university)

The Thinking Bloggers Award week ago Asrar EL Banat honoured me with the Thinking Bloggers Award !!! I was very flattered with the description of my blog… Thank You Thank You Thank You Thank You 🙂

It all started with one blogger, Ilkar Yoldes, who decided that all the tags out there are mindless and the blogs useless.

Too many blogs, not enough thoughts!

He started a new tag “5 Blogs that make me think”.

The participation rules are simple:

1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with links to 5 blogs that make you think,
2. Link to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme,
3. Optional: Proudly display the ‘Thinking Blogger Award’ with a link to the post that you wrote (here is an alternative
silver version if gold doesn’t fit your blog).

And here is my list:

Nesrina and Nerro: a double gemini! Two of the sweetest twins I have ever met (or shall I say “read”). 

Juka: It was a nice coincidence to get to know her through the blogoshpere, especially that we have lots of friends in common! we even went to the same faculty!!! Life is sooooo small !

I appreciate the blogs of these three girls more than anything, maybe it’s because all of us are single working women in their twenties,,,, momken! But when I read for them I feel like I have been through the same thing, it sometimes feels like looking at the mirror from different dimensions 🙂

As for the boys, I love being up to date with Gr33n Data , he always has something new for me. And Cairo Freeze has a brilliant way of expressing himself in caricature. Love them both! 🙂

Thanks AAB, I really appreciated it 😀

The school days

Tagged by Juka

1. Did you use to be a good student at school?

mmm u can say that. I wasn’t bothered much with studying, it was just a fact of life. I was that quiet student who was trusted by the teachers.

2. What were your most loved and most hated subjects?

I was good in math, I loved numbers :-), I also loved geometry. I hated chemistry and biology. Physics always fascinated me, but was little bit difficult. I was interested in history and geology but I think that I would have loved them more if it was taught in a more interesting way. Languages were okay for me. Hated geography (why should I know the names of the petroleum fields in Egypt).

3. When young, what did you want to become?

At the beginning I waned to be an engineer, in what field exactly I don’t know, I just loved the logic of mathematical equations. Later on I wanted to be an explorer (a la Indiana Jones) or a journalist (a la Tintin)

mmmm, I would like to tag Memz and Myra,

Tagged: 5 things you dunno about me!

OpeRon has tagged me. Okay, this is my first time to be tagged, so allow me to get a little bit excited here. I didn’t really think about the things people don’t know about me that I’d like to share them on the blogosphere. First of all I am a very ‘open’ kinda person, I love sharing, maybe too much. But here it is:

  1. Those who I like, take me as a friend, and those who liked me, I saw them as just friends…
  2. I was a very quiet child.
  3. I hate crabs and don’t know how to eat them
  4. I can’t help but buying Mickey every Wednesday night, and if I didn’t, then I expect mom or my brother to get it with them.
  5. I have almost memorised all TinTin’s stories in Arabic
