Coffee Break

After every weekend, you find it hard to get your brain to start functioning the first day. So you are sitting at your desk struggling to get things done which on a day during the middle of the week, would take you half the time. Half the day has past and I am feeling like a truck ran me over. Best medicine is a nice kick-ass coffee from second cup to have while working. Got me a caramel machiato and am sipping on it with big smile :D Cheers!!

Baked Potato

Friday afternoon, I went to Rawda Co-op to take care of some grocery shopping. I had not eaten anything all day since I was so bummed out after Thursday night. But as I was walking out, I came across a baked potato stand. The smell overwhelmed me and, since I am a sucker to backed potato, I just had to try it. So I ordered me a potato which they cut in the middle and fill with cheddar cheese, topped with ketchup, mayo, salt, pepper, and other stuff you can add, but that was it for me. It was definitely one of the best baked potatoes I have ever had and its for only 750 fils. You gotta pay 4 times as much in restaurant where it tastes half as good. Highly recommend it.

Quality NOT Quantity
I believe in the saying "quality not quantity". This past weekend was one of those times that reminded me of how true this quote is. The past weekend was pretty different. We were supposed to go to a party in a far isolated area in the desert but things didn’t work out. So we ended up simply going with the flow and seeing where we end up. We ended up going to a friend’s chalet who was hosting a small scale party which was pretty boring at first but, half way through the night, we were having our own fun which was great; I even got the chance to DJ and spin some of my musicJ At around 2:00 we got a call from another friend inviting us to another party so we head to it. It was very chilled out, and more like a night cap kind of night, which was nice. We chilled there for a few hours, and I didn’t even feel the time pass; next thing I know I am at home 6:00 a.m.!! I collapsed instantly and spent most of my Friday asleep recovering and making up for many lost sleeping hours.

A thought: It doesn't matter how many people you are partying with to have fun, what matters is who you are partying with............. quality NOT quantity;) I can be at a party with a 100 people and feel extremely bored yet I can be chilling with a few friends having the time of my life.

Dark Future for Lebanon
November 23, 2006

There will be a lot of demonstrating going on in Lebanon today. Yesterday, on the news, Dr. Samir Geajea was asked if there will be a demonstration today to overthrow the lebanese so-called president, Emile Lahoud, and he stayed quiet shaking his head. That didn't look good. Many say that overthrowing Lahoud wont help much as there is a bigger power behind him, Syria, which needs to be resolved. But getting rid of this useless president, who has done nothing for the country but make it easier for outside forces to interfere and ruin the country, will definitely be something good for Lebanon and its people since nobody wants the country to be ruled by him. After all these terrorist attacks and assasinations, the people are all wound up and want answers and will resort to violence if they have to. If Lahoud is out, the people will at least calm down. The chances of a civil war are growing by the day, and as much as I hate admitting it, it might come sooner than we think.

Personal Note: Im sitting here on my desk reading the same page over and over again cos the only thing on my mind is the state my country is in and what will I hear on the news at the end of the day. God help us.

Independence Day

Today is the independence day of Lebanon. This day is celebrated every year with joy and happiness but this year it is full of darkness and depression as we bid farewell to the martyr, Sheik Pierre Gemayel. It just keeps getting worse with time. With this day, we are inclined to think and believe that Lebanon is actually an independent country whereas the fact is that it has never won its independence; there is always a stronger power controlling the government. Lebanon is a country that all the bigger guys want a piece of and has become the land where all disputes are handled irrespective of what happens to the country and its people. It might be our independence day, but I sure as hell dont feel independent. I am afraid of what the future holds.

"Catchy" Phrase
I saw this ad on the back of the bus and for a split second I was thinking "what the hell are they talking about?" I mean we all know what they use this quote for most of the time :) But for the yellow card?!?!?!?! Couldnt they think of another catch phrase, ok they did get my attention but I was disappointed knowing it was for the yellow pages! What a poor advertisement, if I wanted to get a copy of the yellow pages, now I changed my mind. I mean, they might as well wrote "size doesnt matter!"

Another Assasination - Pierre Gemayel

Yesterday was yet another sad and depressing day for Lebanon and all the Lebanese. Pierre Gemayel, the 34 year old industry minister and son of former Lebanese President Amin Gemayel, was shot dead in broad daylight in the New Jdeideh area north of Beirut. Reports said that a sport utility vehicle either rammed or pulled alongside Gemayel's silver KIA sedan and then was fired upon through the driver's side window, hitting the minister and at least two others. {More}

May he rest in Peace.

Whenever we think that the country is improving and we get our hopes up, something like this happens. Ever since Prime Minister Rafiq Al-Harriri was assasinated, many have followed and since none of them have been solved, I guess these damn terrorists consider it "ok" to kill politicians in Lebanon. With Gemayel's assasination, the Cabinet has lost 7 members during the past two weeks! Gemayel did not deserve this, he simply was standing up for what he believed in. He was anti-Syrian and a main leader of the Christian Phlange Party. The consequences of this terrorist attack will prove to be devastating as christians throughout the country vowed revenge against the March 8 coalition and pro-Syria Lebanese President Emile Lahoud. Dont look good. At first it was Israel and Hezbullah using Lebanon as a battle ground and now, even with the international forces around, it got worse cos it is now the battle ground for American and Syria; keeps getting worse when we think it is getting better!

Whether it was Syria or not, I have just one thing to say: Whoever you are, get the fuck out of our country and leave us the hell alone!!!

Collapsed

After working myself to the max the past few weeks, I was feeling exhausted and I had reached my limit. Last night I was supposed to meet up with some friends for coffee, so decided to take a short nap and then get up and meet up with them; this was at 7:00 p.m. When I woke up, the clock read 5:00 a.m.!!! Ooops:P Yeah, I was pretty worn out, sleeping max 4-5 hours a day for over a month; there will come a time when you simply just cant go on and yesterday was my breaking point. But I really felt like going out, I guess I got some explaining to do :P Got me thinking though on whether this system I am following is healthy or not. I mean is it better to work yourself out to the extreme for a while then crash at once and make up for all the lost rest or sacrifice some of your entertainment and socializing hours at the end of every day and get an early sleep so you wake up refreshed every morning? For me, I dont think I can handle sleeping early and letting work be the only activity in my everyday life; if I dont see friends at least every two days, I know I will lose it. All in all, it was a terrific and refreshing much needed good sleep :)

First Day at School
Yesterday was my first day at my course at IBS. When I first walked in, they had name plates for each of the students which we had to pick up and place before us. To start with, the teacher was 20 mins late and it was extremely boring waiting for him; when I got there, there were only 3 other guys in the room but the front table was full of plates. When the teacheer finally showed up, most of the other people had shown up. As usual, I sat all the way at the back of the class, just like the good olds days in university:) When the lecture finally starts, the dude is speaking in arabic!! We are supposed to be in an english-speaking institute, yet he is speaking arabic. Well that was fine by me, but there was one Indian student who had to focus on the notes to understand. The good thing was that we were given a copy of his notes so no need to take notes, that was a relief. It was a 3 hour class during which we had a 15 minutes break, when I had a coffee and a cigarette. All in all, the material was diverse and had some interesting points, although I already know most of the stuff which is why I am looking forward to learning new stuff in later classes; the teacher knows what he is talking about but sucks at explaining stuff, is dull, and for some reason, I dont think he likes me. As annoying as it was having to attend classes again, it reminded me of the university days, best days of my life!
