Save me!

I am struggling with my dissertation proposal.  Why is that.  Cuz I still didnt think of a topic! AND ITS DUE ON FRIDAY! I am freaking out.  I need to have 2,500 words written on my topic, how i’m going to research it, the data gathering and all of that.  I am about to go crazy. Help anyone?  I need to write something that has to do with Strategic Quality Management.  (TQM, Management systems, the ISO’s, ERP, CRM, Change Management, PErformance Evaluation, Project management, etc etc) yeah so I am gonna die right??:p

I’m happy for all of them.  Especially ma39ooma imbarak who was 1st in her district.  a7ibha hal mara wala!!!

Like Obama said “Change we can believe in” :p

Marriage Shmarriage

I was going to post about this topic a couple of days ago, but a) I had finals and b) I have recently become lazy.   By typing up this post I am procrastinating going out to get my cousin a birthday present and her bday is tomorrow! Anyways eshda3wa blogged about it before me, but I will still write about it :p

I am 24 turning 25 after the summer, and I am in no huge rush to get married, and the thought of it scares the bejeezus out of me.  But anyways, my mothers friends think I am getting too old and have taken it upon themselves to try to find me a “3arees” against my will.  I have a couple of traits I like in a man and a couple of traits I dont like in a man (just like any other human being).  Just like in girls (when selecting friends) there are traits that I cant tolerate, but with friendships its different because your not living with them 24/7 so you can over look some things right?  To some people I am told that I AM TOO PICKY, oo itha ga3adt 3ala hal 7ala I will never find a man.

Well why shouldn’t I be picky?  Most men are picky, while some men as their mothers to look for girls based on looks “aby wa7da samra” or “aby wa7da baytha” etc.  See the things I like in a man are not physical.  Looks are not that important to me as long as I see the man attractive (and my taste is different than that of all my friends).  But for me personality is extremly important (cliche but true).  I like a man to have a strong personality, as much fun as it is to amashy wa7id 3ala kaify, I don’t want that trait in a man.  I don’t want him to be a dictator but I do want to feel like he is the actual man of the house.  Its not like we won’t discuss major issues and come to a middle ground but you get my drift right? Another thing is ma7ib a guy to be extremely shy.  Then again everyone is different and some girls might like shy guys.  I don’t one fa9ikh il7aya completly bas I want a man, when put in a situation with my family or friends he will be able to communicate, joke around and feel comfortable.    Having the same interests is extremly important for me as well, such as sports, politics, economics and food.  Yes food is an interest and it is important to me.  And the last factor is the kuwaitiness level.  As much as I come off as a chicken nugget, I do have a kuwaiti side to me.  o0 maby wa7id totally americanized oo ma yetkalam 3arabi wayed oo ma yegra 3arabi at all.  ya3ni ma abeeh ikoon 7acher oo mokha imgafel bas ikoon tafkeera on the same level as me. Oh yes and he has to be social, he has to have his own circle of friends.

And I agree that most married couples shouldn’t have kids in the first 2 years of a marriage, not because the marriage might not work out, but because its during that time when they start to really get to know each other.  No matter how long you dated, or even during il khe6ba wil micha phase, you truly don’t know a person until you live with them.  I also think that it is important to care about/love/like the person you marry, because like every human they will have 3yoob, and if you care about them then you’ll be willing to stay quiet regarding somethings.  I also think that people should enjoy that time to travel and have fun, because once the kids come everything is different and your life will revolve around your babies.

I am not against the institution of marriage, I do want someone to settle with, to be my partner etc etc.  But just because he looks good on paper doesn’t mean hes a good candidate.

To end this post I will leave you with an article on Why Nice Guys Finish Last [Link].  I think its true.

And like so3ad 3abdulla read bil mosalsal (i think it was dars kh9oo9i .. 7adi nesait! re7t adawer il dvd bas ma legaita) “I hope you have a happy marag”


I can’t believe that the studying part of my masters program is almost over! ya sater!  I have finals in a couple of days, then 2 paper due by the 22nd oo IM DONE.  Well I only have my dissertation to write which is due on the 1st of December, bas then IM DONE (inshala)!!!!

I don’t know if I blogged about this before, but about a month ago me and the girls went to the Jason Mraz concert here in London, and it was AMAZING! Waaai I still won’t get over how his voice is so hypnotizing!!   Then a couple of days after his concert, me and some of the girls went 2 Paris.  It was a blast.  I really wished Jason Mraz was there with us so he can sing to us while we were walking around paris, 7ada 9oota ye9laa7 7ag chithi wala.

Eiffel Tower

The Eiffel Tower at night was gorgeous.  Its been a while since i’ve been to paris and it was one of the funniest trips I ever had.  Our experience was amazing, we didn’t even feel the french rudeness! Everyone we met was so nice and Paris was so beautiful that I didn’t want to come back to london.

But I am back now and stressed with the looming finals and papers, bas allah isahel inshalah!

Lately I’ve been having really weird dreams, all about airplanes, either having problems taking off or landing or issues in the air. I don’t know what they mean and its annoying me!  I also had a dream that I was in Kuwait and I didn’t vote oo I was so angry at my self, I know that dream is meaningless but I just thought i’d blog about it for the hell of it.

To end this post I will say .. I can’t believe AC Milan and Juventus tied today 😦  I wanted AC to win.  And I don’t understand twitter at all.
