With the post titled: “Screwed in Wong Town”:

Hmmm The title is Screwed in Wong Town hehe basically i was screwed today :r not literally but metaphorically speaking.. kalait khara ib what i had to do :r o check it out:

Last night nemt at 4am and woke up at 8am bl ghasob :r
Had classes at 9 till 3 .. I was ok..
Had to pick up siblings at 3:30 then take ’em home.. no brobrem :r
Then had to take siblings back to school to attend a concert that my other sister was in.. that started at 7
Finished at 8:30 had to then go to my granma howse and pick up maid.. :r who didn’t come till 10 :r but what was funny on trip to granma howse it took 30 mins when it shoulda taken 5 bekause of trafic :r den.. dere was dis trip home..
i reached my room at 10:30pm :r that’s when i had a chance to relax :r

So I guess yea I wasn’t that screwed after all.. oh yea did I mention i got 2 papers that i gotta turn in on wednesday hehe that i haven’t started either and i was meaning to start one today :r

yea it was a normal day today :r

To me, this was supposed to be a temporary thing, a thing that would take up a few days of my time for now and will be cast away until I remember it again, but unfortunately or fortunately enough I did that for a month or two and then it took control of my life. I can’t remember the date quite exactly but I remember it was shortly after another anniversary which I had on that same day. You see this date is very special to me, because it marks my relationship with my loved one. My blog, my baby, is turning 1 today. And my relationship is turning 3 today. It is really an outstanding day to start blogging and all.

Anyhow, I really can’t begin to describe how blogging has become theraputic to me, how it is a way to vent out my inner frustrations, my inner most feelings, my love, my passions, and my crazy-ness. It is a place seriously where I can call home. Where I can be most at ease with myself. I know I should have planned something big today. The big thing that was supposed to be today is the move from Blogger to WordPress but I did that earlier. So it can’t be counted. But, to me I don’t need to do anything else special because seriously it already feels more than home to me.

I’d just like to take a moment here to thank everyone of you who has made my blogging experience a rather good one, who has commented, who has shared, and read every single post from Day one until today. It truly means the world to me.

I love you, you, and you. I love my Blog, I love my love, I love my rants, I love my readers most of all.

Thank you alls, I know I shouldn’t play favorites just yet but I can’t really not recognize my most faithful readers & Purgatory72 (My very first Kuwaiti Commenter I believe). He really has watched this blog grow and change and inserted his input many times.


Update: Symbols happens to be my first Egyptian Commenter :P As well as my first non-friend blogger (as in not being a friend in school or whatever) meetup party :P

About the author

I am a Kuwaiti Apple and gadget girl freak, who gets bored of her blog layouts so much that I change them like I crazy. Currently I work in a newspaper and if you don't see me around I'm being sucked into my job reviewing TV Shows and APPS! This is my space where I vent and release everything, welcome to it.


  1. MABROOK!!! YAY!! A year old!! WoW! Insha2alla 100 yeas old! Wow that would be a helluv an autobiography! ;)

  6. Yay! I feel loved! woohoo!! I get a little “update” section!! Definatley a reason to gloat for!!

    Not ONLY am i the First Egyptian to comment, BUT i’m your “non-friend blogger” ya3ni you hadn’t known me before! woohoo! But you know me now–fortunatley for you, or else 7ayatik min3’ayri salata! LOL! ok, i just had to say that hehehe :**

  7. I had to read first quick to see if I was mentioned, which I was, then read the post again :) Symbol trying to steal some of my fame ha :P

    If you had listened to me, this would have been a better day for you to launch your new format, bes ma tesm3een elkalam shswee feech :)

    But Seriously, I am happy that you are a one of the bloggers around, you are a bright young kid with lots of potential and I hope you get as much out of your life as you can. I remember when I first found your blog, it was all in black, with the picture of that cute cartoon character and I was thinking “yum”, but then “yum” changed to “yup” [you know what I mean ;)]. You first wasa fiesty woman picking fights with PSS calling her spoiled brat or something, but later on, you two became normal. During the same time
    you also have become one of my best friends online, and through you I met other nice people.

    Now Although I was not invited with you three (shame on you), I would like to wish you a happy anniversary and many more to come, though I am not sure how long you will continue, but I will “force” you to continue until I say you can stop.

    So as your mentor, reviewer, and most importantly, your true friend, YAAAAAAAAY :P
