Nope. Still Can't Properly Open Ketchup Packets.

I feel I've become more self conscious and inhibited.
For example, anything I think is worth blogging about turns into a 'no one wants to hear about that!'-type internal dialogue minutes later.
Like right now, I'm thinking: What are you typing? No one wants to read about your insecurities.

I'm afraid this is all I've got for the moment.

Today there was a piece in the paper about a mufti denouncing "faking one's virginity."

Last week there was another one talking about how women should not be allowed to go on the internet without a male guardian present.

It amazes me how these people handle issues of this magnitude with such grace.
I mean, really?
That's what you want to talk about?

What will it take for these people to wake up?
It's not cute anymore.

Saudis will get me on this;

Why is everyone in this country so angry about the Dubai metro?

I know we're jealous of the progress the UAE has made, but really we need to stop hating.

What Do You Say in Your First Post in Over 4754.8 Years, Anyway?


Here's what's new:
  • I'm almost a graduate
  • I'm even more of a hippie than I used to be
  • I don't believe in "Obama the president" anymore
  • Don't get me wrong, I still think he's pretty fly
  • Actually, I don't believe politics can solve anything anymore
  • All we need is love <3

I'm sorry I've been away for so long, but I'm back now. For good. I hope.
If you're reading this, thank you for sticking with me and my drama <3

If it's your first time on my blog and you have no idea what I'm on about...

I Can Never Properly Open Ketchup Packages

I always make a mess.

Wtf is it with all the Octomom talk? Why is she news?
I am appalled that she made her way into Saudi newspapers.

Yesterday I met a girl (17-20 years old) who had never used the internet.
I was... Bewildered.
I mean, how? Why?

Also, follow me on twitter.

I had to.

Someone Should Have Told Me

... You wing it, you FAIL.

Or maybe I should have known on my own.

Anyway. Good thing I'm not a quitter. 

I'll be okay, right?

This is Actually Happening

So the good people in Qatar want a meeting of Arab and Muslim nations to talk about what's going on in Gaza.
And a few days before that's set to happen, Saudi Arabia holds a meeting of its own, basically urging Arab and Muslim countries not to go to the summit in Qatar.


I am getting total dejavu. This has happened before, I'm sure of it...
When, though?

Oh, right.

What the fuck?
Can't we, for once, shut the fuck up, and not embarrass me?

God damn it, only today 65 people died. And this is what we're doing.
Great job, governments of the world. Really.

Prayer is All You Can Give Them. (And Ofcourse, There's Always Sorcery...)

I don't think I've ever been more selfish than I have these last two months. I have not been aware of anything that has gone on outside of my own head.
As a result, I have neglected everything from my school work to this blog, and I apologize.

I want the world to work. I really, really do. And, to a certain extent, I still do not understand why it doesn't. I might be young and naive, I might still have that wide-eyed, childlike view of the world, but for the life of me I don't get why we can't all just get along. I don't understand how casual violence and murder has become. And to be completely honest, I hope I never do.

And so, I reluctantly watched the news for the first time in two months, and it made me cry. Again.
Because people are dying, and in my country I am not allowed to stand in the street and hold up a sign. I am not given the right of silent, peaceful protest.

Please give blood to the injured in Gaza. There are blood drives in most hospitals in Riyadh, KFH among them.

May God be with them. May God give them strength. And may God forgive us all.
