When I'm busy, my life is SO NOT BARE;\

your busy life is no excuse. this entry doesn't count. where are you on the elections? who are you voting for? who are fighting against? and where's the music? and your sketches?
busy means productive. and that's fulfilling.
maybe you're keeping busy to avoid something. otherwise you won't feel this way. am i right or am i right.

My life isn't bare nor barren, but it's a bit on the dry side these days and I don't like it.

All Butterflies
Too many questions there.. :)
I'm not working for any campaign if that's what you mean. I'm watching and waiting for the vote. My music is mostly in my iPod. My sketches, I don't know.
And you're wrong. The one thing I want to avoid is a busy schedule.

Oh my, Shurouq.

It does seem like a lot of heavy political responsibility and expectations are being placed squarely on your shoulders, doesn't it?

Even for the mighty, there are times when energies need replenishing, thoughts need gathering, and raison d' etre's need reassessing and re-establishing. The boring and calm, routine "unproductive" moments are for things like that, especially with creative forces like you. They are for centering yourself in times of madness, for listening to the quiet of your own sanity just before things get fierce.

Chances are, it will get crazy enough soon. So consider this "quiet" and "routine" time your touchstone and a breather to regroup ;) You are just a human girl after all ( a very, very special one at that :* )

7amdilla 3la salamtich, how was the Gogoosh concert and Dubai?

The question of leading a barren or productive life seems pointless to me at the moment. Everyone around me is sick these days - some mild, some fatal. And the dusty weather isn't helping either, Shloonich dearest?

احذر من عقم الحياة المزدحمة

Moderation is the key. Or so they say.

Ms. Baker
No responsibilities are being placed on my shoulders. I wouldn't take any :)
Watching the political scene from where I stand is heavy enough for me.

Googoosh was mesmerizing.. Dubai was humid.

Shosho dearest!
I'm good.. So sorry about your news though.

Salamat your head :)

So I was "discussing" your blog and its new look with a friend the other day.
Bottom line: blue, white, or orange, we love you :*

بو مريوم
أوعدك البوست القادم عربي.. خريجو الثانوية العامة ما ينرد لهم طلب وهم أصواتهم مطلوبة في الانتخابات

3abeer
Not bad ;)
You guys deserve a break. I hardly see or hear from your partner H these days. :(

kwtia said...

:)
Love you right back :*
Hope the new look is easier to read... It's been much better for my eyes and my optimism. Mmm nice to say optimism and 'my' in a sentence.
