Five silly things people do on Facebook!

Social networks have now become more like a lifestyle, everybody masters their own online kingdom, and it fools them with fake power and  delusions.. Some people use it properly, but others… you know what I’m talking about; all they deserve is a merciless “block”! Here are the top 5 things that irritate me on Facebook!

1. No offense… but, do I know you?!!

Who doesn’t love to have hundreds of friends?! But, (hello?!) Facebook is for connecting with your friends, not for making friends with random people, just because you like their profile pictures! It’s how popular you are in real life that counts!

2. Please remind me again, what is the “like” button for??

As far as I understand, if you post something, it already means you like it. So why on earth like your own posts?!! Also, liking someone’s comment should never mean you like them, or that you want to be friends with them.. Don’t make people regret they agreed once with what you said!

3. Sir, you might want to keep “what’s on your mind” in your mind!

It’s amazing how some people can abuse this little box, and fill it with loads of nonsense and utter inappropriateness.. Thank God there’s a “hide this post” button!  Some people too can provoke you with their plain shallowness! The same goes of course to the “comment” box..

4. I swear I don’t “farmville”!!

It floods your requests page as well as your home “news feed”! And people insist on inviting you over and over.. My games tab is empty and always will stay that way! I can bet I don’t miss much awesomeness!

5. And “rumor has it”!

You must have stumbled upon tens of these! And sadly, so many idiots blindly spread that rubbish!

What irritates you??

Another dose of questions..

And the cycle of questions keeps spinning.. I never was into this “chain-post” thing, but when people ask interesting questions, you can’t help but answer ! 🙂

Here are Better this way‘s questions..

1. What book are you currently reading?

Again.. “A thousand splendid suns”. But if you mean medical books, then it’s “Basics of dermatology”!! 😛

2. If you could live in any country/city in the world, which would it be?

Let me think.. I’ve always wanted to visit Paris, but not that I want to live there. I love Cairo where I live now; it’s crowded and noisy, but I love it! My second favorite place is Abu Dhabi.. 🙂

3. If you had three wishes, what would they be?

Endless faith, endless patience, and endless wishes perhaps??! 😛

4. Blackberry or Iphone?

Neither nor!! What’s wrong with Samsung or Nokia phones?! People blindly follow the trend, but I’ve never been that trendy!

5. What’s one thing that you can do really well?

Writing I guess?? Or If not, I’m a professional procrastinator! 😉

6. Harry Potter or Twilight? (you shouldn’t even have to think about it).

HARRY POTTER!! And yes, of course I shouldn’t think about it; Twilight actually stinks, I’d never like a shiny blood-sucking creature, even if it was “Edward Cullen”!

7. Name one song that could be the anthem to your life right now?

I’m not that into music, so honestly nothing is on my mind now. You can pick any song about moving on and hoping for the best.. 🙂

8. If you could meet any famous person from the past, who would it be and why?

That would be the prophet Muhammad (PBUH).. If he was here, I’d want him to rule the country, for the people in charge now have turned everything into chaos!

9. Favourite movie of all time?

You’ve got mail, also the Arabic-dubbed version of A bug’s life, it’s a lot more hilarious! 🙂

10. If you could spend the whole day doing just one thing, what would it be?

It depends, sometimes I can spend the whole day writing what’s on my mind, sometimes facebooking and tweeting, sometimes just sleeping, and sometimes literally doing nothing!

11. Who in your life inspires you the most?

My mother. 😀

Because she’s simply that adorable! :)

Whenever I think my whole life back and rewind the tape in my head over and over, I see how  often I panicked, stumbled, and fell over my face.. I also see her; always taming my fear, picking my hand, and lifting me up!


She’s that kind of confident, strong multitasking women who is strict, yet knows well how to have fun; a woman whose sarcasm gets you rolling on the floor laughing.. A genius doctor who also happens to be a great cook, a creative hairdresser, a good listener, a best friend and a lot more. She has this way of scolding you and making you laugh at yourself in the same moment, always encouraging you do what you love to do, but not on the account of your duties.. That kind of people you can’t recall a moment of happiness or misery without her always being on your side..

To her I say Happy mothers’ day, not only today, but in every given day of my life. To here I say thank you; for being you, and for making me who I am.. ♥ ♥  😀

More questions, more answers!

Okay, my previous questions post got me into a cycle of more questions! I don’t mind, it actually gives me something to write about!  Here’re Nasmira‘s questions..

9. When was the last time a stranger smiled at u because of your kind word/deed to him/her ?

As far as I remember, that was few months back at Tahrir; when I volunteered at the field hospital. A woman smiled at me and patted my shoulder just because I was there!

I don’t think I have a favorite color, but people claim that I love pink! 😛

Five people I can never trust!

In a world infested with lots of not-so-trustworthy folk, If l list the people who can never earn my trust, these 5 will make it to the top!

1. Politicians:

99 percent of them are professional, manipulative liars! They consider the world their playground, and us, their puppets!

2. Gossipers & mockers:

Constantly sticking their nose, asking many questions, talking about and making fun of anybody and anything! When they don’t speak to you, surely they’re busy gossiping about you!

Source: Google images.

3. The snake-ish:

They change their skin, and they’re poisonous! They never stick to a side; they always change their mind.. Today if they’re on your side, tomorrow you’ll get stung!

Source: Google images.

4. The narrow-minded:

Stubbornness blinds them; they think they’re always right, and even when they don’t, they never apologize!

5. The vulgar:

I don’t know why exactly, but I can never trust those who use profanities thinking it’s cool, or just for fun! What’s inappropriate is inappropriate anyway!

Who’s on your list??

iQuote: (3) Take risks!

They say..

“Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass… It’s about learning how to dance in the rain.” ~ Vivian Greene.


“Nothing comes easy. Nothing is given to you. Whatever you do, you’ve got to work for it and earn it. Whatever reward you get you’ve go to know that you’ve had your input into that success. There’s no substitute for hard work. And if you want to be well known or well liked, you have to put yourself out for people.” ~ Jack Charlton.

So eventually..

“You have to take risks. We will only understand the miracle of life fully when we allow the unexpected to happen.” ~ Paulo Coelho.

And after all..

“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” ~ Helen Keller.

It’s time to ask! :)

Thesilentsoul tagged me to answer some questions, it’s fun, and here I am.. 🙂

1. You must post the rules.
2. Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and then create eleven new questions to ask the people you’ve tagged.
3. Tag eleven people and link to them on your post.
4. Let them know you’ve tagged them!

* In case anyone’s interested in answering, consider yourself tagged! 🙂

TheSilentSoul’s questions:

1. If you could have been born at any other time in history when would it have been?

That would be a time when radios were a brand new invention, when people rode horses and carts, and went to sleep by sunset!! Life was a lot simpler then..

2. What’s your ultimate cheery-up thing to do when you’re down?

It depends; I mostly tend to distract myself and get busy. I watch a movie, sip some coffee, read something, or talk to someone. Sometimes I pray, and sometimes all I do is going to sleep!

3. If your life was turned into a movie who would you like to see playing the part of you?

I don’t think anyone would fit! I might go for an Egyptian actress; Donia Samir Ghanem isn’t close to me whatsoever, but she’s a pro, I guess she would play it well.. Or if not, her sister Emy might be the next option..

4. If you could go back in your history and be any age again, which age would you chose and why?

Preschool age, when I had no responsibilities, and absolutely nothing to worry about.. 🙂

5. If your entire DVD collection was confiscated apart from one DVD which one would you chose to keep?

This’s confusing! The one on my mind at the moment is “You’ve got mail”..

6. What 3 things would you take if you were banished to a desert island for the rest of your life?

A tent, some instrument to dig for water, and a source of food; a cow pregnant cow perhaps??! LOL!

7. What’s the best book you’ve read?

The Qur’an; it has this soothing effect, and it suits all the moods, and all the situations.. 🙂

8. If you were eaten by a shark would you expect someone to hunt the shark down?

Yes, I would! Hope keeps you alive, right?? 😉

9. If a genie offered you the choice of a million pounds or a guaranteed healthy and happy life, which would you take?

“A guaranteed healthy and happy life”.. Money is valueless with no health or happiness!

10. What’s you’re favourite pudding?

Anything with caramel or cinnamon on top, or both!

11. If you could have any animal in the world as a pet (assuming you had as much space as you needed to keep it) what would you choose?

I’ve always wanted to own a horse.. 🙂
