I’ve been watching many friends lately posting old pictures of them and their families followed with the hashtag “TBT”. I was actually very curious to know what it is all about until I saw the image above and knew what it certainly means.

Here’s my #TBT for this week.

(144) – Sacrifice


How many times have you been inspired by a song, a movie, a success? This source of inspiration means a lot to you especially when you’re reminded of it later on; you relate to it and recall the feeling you first had when exposed to that inspiration. you feel the hurt, tear down and feel strong as well. But have you ever thought of the person who’d been through this true story? The one who’d been through loss and had to sacrifice it all to make you feel inspired?

Well, some people are meant to go through painful events in life, there are destined to have truly impossible fate and suffer. One day, they’ll get through it and beat the hell of out their lives with memorable lessons to teach us, the blessed, the careless and the ignorant who never appreciate what we have or do. Those people had the privilege to be hurt and opposed because they’ve got their share of suffer in life and now are ready to have fun and live peacefully away from all miseries.

Nonetheless, there’s a few who had to sacrifice and still sacrifice and bear the pain all day and night long. I don’t know what God holds for them but I’m pretty sure they’ll be happy and satisfied, if not in this life, then it’ll be in the eternal life.

Eminem is one of the most inspirational artists ever happened; his movie 8 Mile is one of; he might be famous today but he had been through all kinds of troubles in life. I hope you enjoy this song by the truthful Eminem.

 

French words of the day will be updated later in the next post. 

(142) – Midweeks


I never knew what it means to work five days a week or how some people can’t wait until the weekend. I used to think they are not productive and just like to exaggerate things but this semester with a full schedule at university I know exactly how it feels to be busy all the week long.

Three days out of five, I have lectures from 8 am until 5 pm; it’s really exhausting, mentally and physically. By the time I get back to my house, have a shower, eat my dinner, see the family and rarely a friend, I’d be completely worn out and not in a mood to do any additional activity. Then next day, I get up very early as well, go to university, spend many hours and so on…

Weekends now are full-scheduled too; I have to finish my homework, my reports and study for a few hours. I have to compensate for my reading part, so I spend many hours moving form a blog to another then comes my books, read few chapters and go back to WordPress. In the evening, I’d chat with my pen-friends or hang out with my local friends; sometimes we have dinner together or just enjoy a silent weekend.

The best thing is that I’m learning to become more productive under pressure. Being busy all the time could be really helpful especially if you have problems with your sleeping habits where you’ll have to sleep early so you can get up early and enjoy an energetic day.

What about your week? Is it busy as well? Or you’d rather it be quiet? Are you productive under pressure or like to take your time?

 

 

French words of the day:

– comment vous appelez vous? comment t’appelles-tu?

– je m’appelle…

– À bientôt!

– Au revoir

– Enchanté

(141) – I’m Learning French :)


Languages have always been my passion as well as my challenge. If you ask me why I love languages and what’s interesting about learning foreign languages, I’d probably have no answer, it’s just in my blood.

I couldn’t start learning English the right way until I was in my early 20’s; I’ve had the opportunity of meeting some native speakers and other people who use English in their daily life. Well, that was fantastic. I still remember how I felt at first to be among a group of people who speaks only English.

Today, I’m practicing the language and use it more than ever before; I read books in English, I watch movies needless to see the translation, I can deliver a full speech and convey my messages in English. Besides, my blog, which is helping me more than anything else.

Consequently, I thought it’d be appropriate now to move up to the next level and start something more challenging. French is my current challenge; I’ve got many useful applications downloaded on my mobile phone, subscribed to a few channels on Youtube and began my learning process on my own. I’ll be learning a few words everyday as well as grammar. I have plans to share the words I learn everyday here on the blog as notes added to the end of my posts, but let’s just see how it goes.

Here are the French words of the day:

– bonjour (hello).

– comment allez-vous? / ça va? (how are you?)

– je vais bien, merci. (I’m fine, thank you)

– je ne vais pas très bien, merci. (I’m not going very well, thank you)

 

How about you dear readers? Do you like languages? Which languages would you like to learn?

(139) – Stop Worrying For God’s Sake!


“If youth only knew, if age only could”

Just stop worrying, stop nagging and complaining. Be responsible, be aware of the time you’re losing. You might be doing well in terms of what you’ve missed a few years ago but you’re losing the moment, you’re missing many other things, that’s for sure.

Your youth knows and is capable of doing it, why not do it? why? why?

(138) – Remember?


When we first met I didn’t think you’d give up on me one day and that you’d be more committed to someone else, someone who would never be able to love you the way I do or be able to understand you the same exact way I do. When we first met I was willing to sacrifice my life, my time, my duties and responsibilities only to make you happy. And yes, I did, don’t you remember? Don’t you remember the days and nights I left my family and spent it all with you? I knew you were lonely and homeless, I realized you needed someone to be with you all the time and that you wanted to talk and talk and talk… I still remember our first meal together, you were gorging food like you hadn’t had anything in years but you know what, it was never annoying nor weird. I loved you the way you were and believed in your potentials.

Back then, I didn’t want anything but to see you smiling and laughing all the time. Remember when you told me I’m nuts and feminine? Actually, I’m not dear, I was just acting that way deliberately; don’t be surprised, that made you smile, that let you forget the old days. Even though, I accepted your false judgments and took that as a compliment.

Remember the tears in your eyes? When we were sitting on the front of my car? Or when we were sitting in the car with the windows closed and the sky falling down? You were staring at the sky and asking why you? I do remember, clearly. Do you have any idea what I felt back then? I wanted to hug you, to hold you tightly, to wipe up your tears and replace them with a grin from ear to ear. I wanted to make you feel my love, my care, my fondness.

Remember when I said you’re spontaneous? I meant it; your simplicity kills me, your spontaneity is what obliges me to always be at your beck and call but that doesn’t mean to take me for granted, that doesn’t include my hurt feelings and emotions. You know I love you and I’m very jealous, you know that I’d never like to be just another friend of you. Well, that should encourage you to keep me close, to keep me in and take care of me. That sounds dumb and silly but I’m serious, I’m very serious about it.

You know the statement “do no harm but take no shit”??? I’d put up with your shit, you did thank me for that one day, as usual, I took it as a compliment but up to some extent, I’ll do harm, I’ll hurt you and challenge you only to prove that you don’t deserve my love. Even if you’re spontaneous, I’m not to be messed with.
