Where Were You When I Needed Someone

August 13, 2012  |  Creative

Disclaimer: The below work is a piece of fiction written by me, nothing is insanely wrong in my life for it to be applied to it.  I just felt a need to jot these words down as they were fresh in my mind.  Feelings, emotions, thoughts, words all float in my head right before I attempt to sleep so why not.

Where were you when I needed someone to talk to? Where were you?

Where were you when I needed someone to lean on? Where were you?

Where were you when I needed someone to wipe my tears? Where were you?

Where were you when I needed someone to laugh along with me? Where were you?

Where were you when I needed someone to hug out my pain? Where were you?

Where were you when I needed someone to just be there? Where were you?

Seriously, where were you?

Now I no longer need you to talk to, because I carry on a wiser conversation all by myself.

Now I no longer need you to lean on, because my body has found a new strength.

Now I no longer need you to wipe my tears, because nothing is worth those precious tears.

Now I no longer need you to laugh along with me, because laughing alone brings a new type of joy.

Now I no longer need you to hug out my pain, because I feel no pain.

Now I no longer need you to just be there, because I’m there.

I am stronger, wiser, smarter, and so much more now that you are no longer here.

The Making of the Dathra Doll

July 12, 2012  |  Creative, Cuteness

I mentioned in my previous post about how I wanted to create something special for my good friend Danderma who wrote the series “The Chronicles of Dathra: a dowdy girl from Kuwait” and the thing that came to mind is immortalizing her “Dathra” into a doll. But the task was not as easy as one would think.  Well actually it kind of is for me!

You see my aunt enjoys crafting (my only aunt from my father’s side that is) and she has embarked on numerous projects one of which was rag dolls.  I was standing there in her craft room where I saw a couple of rag dolls which she made earlier I was enticed and thought she would be the best person for the job.  At first I wanted to learn how to make a doll but receiving the invitation and having only a few days to prepare everything I left her in charge.  I picked up the phone and called in the order “Hi Auntie, I want one ‘Dathra’ doll please! Hold the fries :P” (I’m kidding I didn’t say “hold the fries!”).

[Gadget Girl Diaries] The Introduction

June 26, 2012  |  Creative, Gadget Girl Diaries

Disclaimer: The following short story is a work of fiction; names, characters, and incidents are the product of this author’s imagination.  Any resemblance to actual people or events is coincidental.

Most girls at my age would be worried about paying for the latest pair of Gucci heels, Prada bag, Armani shoes; they’d also be making over their look once or twice a month and sometimes a week all of this in hopes of catching a guy here or there.  But not I, nope, no sir! I am the closeted (or so I lie to myself) gadget-a-holic! I am a twenty-something girl who is absolutely and utterly obsessed with the latest gadgets! And if you like fruits, as I love them, then you’d know which fruit I’m quite partial too.

Ever since I was a young cub (woah, I’m not a bear, let’s just scratch that), so ever since I was a young child I had a certain infatuation with all things that speak geek.  I am not a certified geek-a-holic but I sure loves me some nerd speak and a lot of technology!

My obsession reached it’s peak a few years ago, a point of no return.  I require a fortune just to feed off this obsession and allow myself to live the geeky life.  Family members would ask me to go shopping with them and instead of losing myself in department stores filled with the latest clothes and shoes I find myself yearning to enter an electronics store in hopes of getting lost in between the endless rows of mobile phones, music players, TVs, laptops, desktops, and everything that is wonderful! Don’t get me wrong I love to shop for clothes and shoes and all the basic necessities, but that’s exactly what they are: basic necessities.  But my UMHs (Ultimate Must-haves)? That term would be applied to the latest phone that is being released which has x-y-z features or the revamped tablet or computer.

I thought one of the best ways to make new friends as I am constantly being told to do so, is to give you this glimpse into my life and show you what a typical day would require from me.  But before I can do any of that I have to introduce myself, hmmm on second thought I would rather prefer to remain nameless, to give you that sense of mystery and allow you to imagine yourself in my shoes for once (trust me they’re not Gucci heels!)

But remaining nameless will sort of be hard therefore I think I would like to be  called “Gadget Girl”, my friends call me “GG” and since we are going to know more about each other I believe it’s safe to assume you could all call me that.  So fasten your seat belts and be prepared to enjoy the roller coaster ride of your life, I am about to give you the inside scoop of my life and I bet you will surely fall in love with it.

Creative Writing and Jacqui

June 25, 2012  |  Creative, Random

I sorely miss my creative writing days, if you search the “Creative” category on this blog you will see some short stories I wrote a long time ago.  I have a story in mind and I have already written the introduction to it, but I sorely need a new name to call it.  I am hoping to launch this bad girl later on today I am just in the final stages of choosing a name for the series and whatnot.

Are you excited? Would you love to read a nice short story here? Of course once it starts it will be a weekly thing, I will give you a glimpse into the lives of the characters every week and bring you a new “adventure” per say.  I for one am excited, what about you?

So until we meet again this evening, I bid thee adieu!

Join Me On My Couch and Let’s Watch Fall TV!

September 13, 2011  |  Creative, Hot, My Life, TV

It’s that time of the year, you know where we get to see new shows coming onto the scene and old ones returning to give us all the gory fun!  What better way to celebrate that time than by sharing with you freaks my Fall TV Schedule! I slaved over it for a couple of days and spent hours wondering about color coordination and such and I’d like to give you the final piece of work!

Ta daaaaaaa!

It’s awesome isn’t it? I am so proud of my baby! To summarize what you see up there and in the “Master Key” The returning shows get the “Blue” color because well they’ve been on for a while! And the brand new shows get “Orange” sort of to make it pop in your face that there is a new show coming out! And the “Grey” ones are the summer shows and the ones on hiatus since we will be seeing new episodes coming out sooner or later.  The size of this calendar is like insanely huge it can even serve as a wallpaper background for your laptop/desktop (I know I will be placing it at mine!

I just can’t wait! I’m so excited! So far “New Girl” has released their premiere episode and it rocks! And we’ve got “The Secret Circle” releasing theirs before their premiere date which is this Thursday.  I can’t wait to get back to watching shows full speed again! [And thanks to the removing of the data cap we can enjoy our Fall season].

Anyways enjoy it! Drop me a comment on whether you liked the schedule or not, and if you’d like you can blog about it yourself just be sure to mention my hard-ass work :P

P.S. If you might not see your favorite shows up there well it’s because they are not on my list LOL! This is after all my favorites list! :P

My Fall TV Preview Has Been Published

September 13, 2011  |  Creative, My Life, Work

I am officially what you can call a “writer”! I know I know you might say the sentence doesn’t make sense or that I need to work on my grammar but nonetheless I am a happy person today!

I woke up and headed to work at 1:30PM (yes Dudette my job rocks! :P Waking up at 12 having a late breakfast taking my time then going out is the shizzle!) and I immediately grabbed today’s copy of the newspaper to see my name in print.  In that beautiful inky print on a snazzy-looking cool newspaper!

I will now be contributing to the Newspaper in terms of “Fall TV Previews” giving you glimpses of new shows or running shows and recommending what’s hot and what’s not! It’s so cool and I am proud of it! If I was back in school now instead of collecting the Arab Times Newspapers as I did before simply for the awesome comic strip pages and the Entertainment pages I would ditch that and grab the Al Watan Daily Newspaper and check out the cool TV News that I introduced as well as the TV Show Previews!

No more feeling bored while reading news that can be found anywhere; you will find a new TV Preview in the newspaper every other day or so! Depends on how fast I can churn them out! But in short I’d like to say to myself that I am very proud of myself!

Al Watan Daily Newspaper; September 13 2011; Entertainment Page 21

Yes I am one snazzy cool hipster cat! Chill on J!

P.S. Be sure to head over to the Article’s page [here] and leave a comment I’d love to read it on the official newspaper website as well as here! And thanks to everyone for your awesome support! Rest assured more awesomeness will be on it’s way!

P.P.S. There is nothing like seeing your name in a printed newspaper it just has that awesome-y lengend-wait for it -ary feeling!

Looking Forward To

October 9, 2007  |  Apple, Creative, Designs, Hot, My Life, Random

… the Eid break!  No matter how short or how crazy it’s going to be I’m looking forward to it because I can catch up on some sleep and rest my poor over-abused self!

It sucks having to just go day in and day out dealing with alot of things and not have a small amount of time to yourself, it even sucks more when you can’t enjoy your sleep anymore it becomes a matter of just sleeping enough to pass the neccessity for sleeping time.  If I ever made sense about that!

Anywho here are somethings I am checking out:

Sony Ericsson is coming out with a “Havanna” Edition for their new phones.  The W910i and W880i in Havanna Bronze are just HOT!

You have to love those Mac Fanboys who spend some time creating their renditions of how they want the products to look like.  This is their rendition of the MacBook Pro Touch!
