Every Woman is a Goddess

God created only one me, who am I to question that?
Kristine Paton
 Posted by Hello

This post is dedicated to a very dear friend, who’s some where along the way lost her confidence in herself...I wanna remind her how beautiful she is inside out…no matter what people say…you are beautiful….we may not be a size 4 but honey we sure have a lot more to offer…women come in all shapes and sizes and we gotta learn how to appreciate our beauty…
I wanted to post the lyrics of a song that just inspire me by India Arie “Video”
This song is dedicated to you my dear friend and to every woman who ever had doubts on how beautiful she is…

I'm not the average girl from your video
and I ain't built like a supermodel
But, I learned to love myself unconditionally
Because I am a queen
I'm not the average girl from your video
My worth is not determined by the price of my clothes
No matter what I'm wearing I will always be India Arie

When I look in the mirror and the only one there is me
Every freckle on my face is where it's supposed to be
And I know my creator didn't make no mistakes on me
My feet, my thighs, my lips, my eyes; I'm lovin' what I see

Am I less of a lady if I don't wear pantyhose?
My mama said a lady ain't what she wears but, what she knows
But, I've drawn a conclusion, it's all an illusion, confusion's the name of the
A misconception, a vast deception
Something's gotta change
Don't be offended this is all my opinion
ain't nothing that I'm sayin law
This is a true confession of a life learned lesson I was sent here to share with
So get in where you fit in go on and shine
Clear your mind, now's the time
Put your salt on the shelf
Go on and love yourself
'Cuz everything's gonna be all right

Why do Arabs love to fight?

Two of my friends are visiting from out town and they asked me today to take them out to an Arabic restaurant then to an Arabic night club…they are both Americans and they love anything and everything that is Arabic…I was happy to take them to the restaurant but I was a bit reluctant to take them to an Arabic night club…my past experience with Arabic night clubs were mostly bad…but finally I cave in coz I felt bad that they came all the way here and I wanted them to enjoy their time.
We went to this Arabic night club which was decent in my opinion but for some reason they didn’t have a belly dancer today and my friends girlfriend wanted to go to a place with a belly dancer…so fine we drove to another night club that I hate…we walked in and it looked like a meat market…I felt a bit uncomfortable but I was in good company with a big group of friends…we sat in our little table and the place was packed!
The music was too loud and the belly dancer was lousy in my opinion but my guy friends thought otherwise but that’s another story….we ordered some shesha and I was smoking like m3alema (yes smoking I guess my new year resolution went out of the window LOL) the next thing I know two guys are arguing and then started hitting each other and the fight got bigger and was a group of “Khaljeeyen” fighting with a group of “Shamyeen” at first I started laughing and I said to myself here we go again…but I had a thought this wasn’t the first time I witness a fight between Khaljeyeen and Shamyeen…why do they hate each other?
I don’t know the thought just crossed my mind…personally I have friends from both sides…anyways we left the club unharmed…thank god!

Jelly the Bully!!

OK today was a very good day, I think!
My friend dropped me off to school since my car is still at the dealer and in the parking lot we see this Kuwaiti chick that I’ve been looking for her for the past 2 years! You ask why?
Well, 2 years ago I was invited to fo6oor with a bunch of Kuwaiti girls…normally I never and I say never go to these functions coz lel asaf Kuwaitis here are just “Khama” bas the main reason I went coz I have been hearing rumors and gossip about me. I wanted to go to confront the girl who’s been saying these outrageous stories about me, however, she never showed up. You see I never met this girl in my life yet she created so many stories and gossip that it reached all the way to Kuwait!!!
How can a person whom you never met could make up these kinds of stories? Maybe because I’m in your face, I smoke in public and don’t give a shit if the Kuwaitis here are shocked when I light my cigarette in front of them…maybe coz I go to clubs and I don’t hide when I see them…maybe coz I don’t live a double life like most of them do!
Whatever it is I’m doing I never lie about things.
So what happened is I stopped her and talked to her, at the beginning I was surprised to see this tiny, little girl with a total nerdy look would do such a thing! But I felt like a bully and I had to question her for what she did…she didn’t know who I was and I introduced myself…I told her inna 3aib iley ga3ed itsawena o inna we are not in high school…kebarana 3ala hal sowalif…I told her I’m 26 years old and these childish things is way behind me but what bothered me the most of you talking behind my back is you never met me!!! How can you judge me and create all these stories!
Of course she was in a state of shock and she looked scared LOL
She denied the entire thing yet she apologized!
I don’t know if what I did was wrong or right to many but I felt I needed to put a stop all the gossip, although I doubt she will stop bas I warned her the next time wont be pleasant!
Yes baby don’t mess with Jelly the Bully ;)

My Car :(

My baby is giving up on me after all these years. My car broke down on me; I guess it couldn't handle our little trip to Mexico. I had to take her to the dealership today. I have a feeling this time it's gonna hurt...I'm already so broke after spending 300 dollars on books! This time it's my transmission and you know and I know that's bad news!! :(
I started thinking back to the journey my baby took with me and I couldn't believe how many places my car has been to( Washington D.C, Virginia, Boston, NYC, PA-Philly, Erie, State College, Scranton, Pittsburgh, New Jersey, Connecticut, Ohio- Kent, Cleveland, Toledo, Detroit, Chicago, Arizona- Phoenix, Tucson, Flagstaff, Sedona, California- LA, San Diego, Laguna Beach, Long Beach, Orange county, Anaheim, San Bernardino, Nevada-Vegas, and Lake Tahoe.) I think that's about it, so my baby never been to the south east nor north west....hahahahahahha…I think it did pretty well and mashallah the mileage is average…bas I just hope my baby will survive until I graduate.

I'M BACK from my little trip to Mexico and everything went well al7emdallah. I know I didn't post for a while but I got busy with school trying to get the classes I wanted and paying my tuition.
As you can see from the pictures I had a good laugh in Mexico, my friend was trying to cheer me up coz I was nervous as hell, when we got into Mexico we did some shopping and she saw this Jackass...she begged me to take a picture with the jackass..I couldn't help but was so funny...bless her heart she made the trip fun
Re-entering the border was scary at first but everything went smoothly (al7emdallah) thanks to my mom she smsed me every second with a little prayer...hahahahahaa.
yeah so I'm back and everything is good, I'll keep you posted on school and I just wanna say thank you to everyone who prayed for me and wished me you all :*

My last obstacle before getting everything straight with school is an immigration issue. I have to have a new I-20 and I have to leave the U.S and re-enter but since school is going to start on Tuesday I can't go back home, my only solution would be Mexico!
I have to cross the border and come back in, the only thing there are major risks in doing that coz I could be stuck at the border and the immigration officer have the total power to decide if I should re-enter or not. I am really scared that I would be stuck in Mexico but I am left with no other choice!!
I'm going to go probably on Wednesday coz my I-20 should be ready by then and I wanna do it during the week coz sob7an allah if I do get stuck there, I could contact the international office, embassy or whomever I need to contact.
So if you don't hear from me in a while, that means I never made back in!!!
Please wish me luck and pray for me coz I am really worried about getting stuck there. I will be prepared for the worst but inshallah that won't happen.
But if everything goes smoothly, I'll be home inshallah at the end of the summer.

Tomrrow is the the big day

I’m gonna meet my Dean tomorrow and I’m still stressing out. I’ll try my best to stay focused. I don’t think I could handle any negative news from her. I am confident I have done well the past couple of semesters but I can’t help to think of what if?
Allah kareem and please remember me in your prayers :)

Allah Ye7afeth Al Kuwait inshallah

I read the newspapers today and I started crying!
I was horrified to learn that such a thing could happen in Kuwait?!?
Terrorism in Kuwait!!!
innocent people being shot? What's next?! How did we reach this point?
I just pray to god to bless our small country and I hope they catch those bastards who did this coz in my book they ARE NOT KUWAITIES!!!!!
I hope they get prosecuted and strip anyone from their citizenship who even dares to think of doing such a thing to their own country.
I hope everyone will stay safe.
Allah ye7fethkom we7afeth Al Kuwait inshallah min kil shar.
God Bless.

Salsa Baby ;)

Posted by Hello
Today I had a blast going out with my friends…they dragged me out of my apartment coz they knew I was going through a depression…12 people showed at my place uninvited and I usually hate it when they do that bas it was very funny how they all came in….they all looked good and they were ready to party…
Our destination was one of the hot salsa clubs in town…I got all dressed up in red…you know to get into the mood…hahahahhahaha…
We had our little United Nation going on, we had the Latinos (Mexicans and Puerto Ricans) the Arabs of course (mostly from the Gulf area with an exception of a Moroccan-cutey) and some friends from East Africa (to be exact Zanzibar and Kenya) and within this little east African group they were mixed…Indian/Arabs/Africans…LOL
But man they can shake what their mama gave them….the funny part we kind of created our own dance coz my beloved Swahili friends had their own little dance going on and we just all followed….hahahahhahaaha
Now my thighs, tummy and my butt are sore….it was a nice little workout.
Here is a little Swahili word that I know “nakupenda” which means I love you.
I love you “Beoble” ;)

I decided to share with you the song I was dancing to in the club and one of my old time favorites for the queen of salsa Celia Cruz “La Vida Es Carnaval” (it was my first song I danced to in my salsa class)
So enjoy the link…sorry I wish I knew how to download the song into the blog…It would’ve made things easier…but anyhow enjoy ;)

adore ustedes y las vivas ( I don’t know if I said it right)
cheers ;)

I need your prayers

Ok I think I’m going crazy, no no crazy is not the word….I think I’m getting paranoid…first day of school is in 2 weeks and I have my appointment with the dean on Wednesday to decide on my school status.
Yes my school status, you see I screwed up royally in the past and I've been working hard to make it up. I don’t know what’s gonna happen, I’m just waiting and praying that things will turn out ok. I am ready to graduate and get my ass back home.
I need your prayers, that inshallah she’ll understand my situation and work with me towards my graduation.
I just hope I won’t fall apart until Wednesday.

Joke of the day ;)

SINGLE BLACK FEMALE seeks male companionship, ethnicity unimportant.
I'm a very good looking girl who LOVES to play. I love long walks in the woods, riding in your pickup truck, hunting, camping and fishing trips, cozy winter nights lying by the fire. Candlelight dinners will have me eating out of your hand. Rub me the right way and watch me respond. I'll be at the front door when you get home from work wearing only what nature gave me. Kiss me and I'm yours. Call (404) 875-6420 > and ask for Daisy.

Over 15,000 men found themselves talking to the Atlanta Humane Society about an 8-week old black Labrador Retriever. Men are so easy. .

Sex and the City

Posted by Hello

One of my favorite shows on HBO is Sex and the City, I just bought their final season on DVD. For those of you who watch the show know that each of the girls has a very interesting character.

Carrie Bradshaw (played by Sarah Jessica Parker) No one captures the lives of the lovelorn and the love-seeking in New York City better than columnist Carrie Bradshaw does. As fodder for her column, single and fabulous Carrie looks to the experiences of her best friends and her own. Never shying away from difficult or delicate subjects, Carrie has covered everything from emotional dependence to sexual independence. And somehow, through all her research and realizations, she's remained open to the possibility of finding love among the ruins.
Samantha Jones (played by Kim Cattrall) Scintillating Samantha is a successful PR exec who knows what she wants - and most of the time, she gets it. She radiates confidence in everything she does, whether it's landing a star client, getting a table at the trendiest restaurant or bedding the hottest guy in a room. Samantha embraces her uninhibited sexuality with a diverse (and large) group of lovers, from wrestling coaches to power bachelors to a studly farmer. Forget wedding dreams; Samantha takes lust over love any night, and she's proud of it. Once, she even experimented with lesbian love, but when her "girlfriend" demanded more intimacy, Samantha knew it wasn't going to work out.
Charlotte York (played by Kristin Davis) Charlotte has a refreshingly optimistic outlook on love and romance amidst the ever-complex dating scene of NYC. Well-bred, she walks through life with a perfect sense of decorum. And a lot of idealism. For years, Charlotte had a crystalline vision of the life she wanted to have. First and foremost, she wanted to get married. She wanted true love. And she wanted her husband to be wealthy, handsome and belong to the social elite. Dr. Trey MacDougal seemed her Prince Charming, but her marriage was far from what she had hoped it would be.
Miranda Hobbes (played by Cynthia Nixon) Miranda is smart, self-assured and proud of her achievements. She raises the bar for herself continually, be it in her professional or personal life. She made partner in her law firm and was able to buy her own pre-war apartment on the Upper West Side (Take a look inside). However, she's struggled with her love life and, at times, abandoned the pursuit of love altogether. Tough and down-to-earth, she doesn't open up easily, masking her vulnerability with cynicism and self-deprecating humor. Throughout her long-term relationship with Steve, she had bouts of doubt about her true feelings and was constantly frustrated with Steve's laid-back approach to life.

So here is the question ladies and gentleman,
Ladies which of the girls you could relate to the most or you could see yourself as?
And guys which of those girls would you like to go out with?

Day Three, Smoke Free

Posted by Hello
Today is day 3 and I haven't had a cigarette yet!!
I have to say this is one of the hardest things I have ever done, I'm craving 2 smoke a cigarette so bad but I'm holding back.
I'm even trying to avoid some of my friends because they are smokers and I don't know if I'm strong enough to be around them yet. This is one new year resolution that I better achieve, so I'll keep you updated, wish me luck!
