One of the best lines I've read

كانت الدنيا تمر بحالة من السكون التام حين يكون الليل و ما فيه من نقيق و صرير قد ولى ، و حين لا يكون النهار الكامل بأصواته و ضجيجه قد أقبل بعد. سكون تام مطبق وكأنما ستقوم القيامة بعده . سكون جليل مهيب تتردد حتى أدق الكائنات في خدشه.

In Kuwait after 4 years

It's been around 4 years since I've last visited Kuwait. As a first impression it doesn't seem like it has changed alot. But before I state my first impression, right now while I'm writing this there's an earthquake taking place.
I guess Kuwait is greeting me or probably as we say in Egypt ( gebto ma3aya wana gyy ).

Here's my first impression :

1) Alot of private clinics, spas & law firms. This wasn't the case or wasn't even close 4 years ago.
2) Starbucks & Mc Donald's in almost every street and around every corner.
3) Ladies are using toooooooo much make-up and perfume.
4) Construction is taking a fast pace, lots of cranes and new buildings.
5) Streets are more crowded than what I know.

These are the first things I've noticed in after one day.

Hopefully, more to come soon

Undiscovered Talent.

I don't really know why I have this feeling that I'll live and die without knowing what my true talent is. This is true, I don't know till now what my talent is ; and if I have a talent at anything in the first place. I even can't find a hobby that I enjoy doing for long time, I enjoy lots of things but nothing in particular.
I'm usually good at most of the things I do, but this has something to do with my persistence rather than any talent.

Here's a list of fields that I crossed out:

I'm not an artist
I'm not a musician
I'm not a first class athlete
I'm not a writer
I'm not a poet

I really wish I'd figure out and most importantly make use of it before I die.

Losing track of time

Today I had some weired moments in the early morning that left me laughing for more than 15 minutes.

Here goes the story:

My alarm beeps at 7:30, I jump out of bed with the first beep. I look at my clock, here's what I think " Shoot, I've only got 5 minutes to pray al-3asr prayers ", how could that happen I can't recall that I've prayed before heading to bed; I even can't recall at what time I went to bed aslan.
So I just went straight to the bathroom for wodoo2, then I started recalling my day's incidences sequentially in order to figure out at out time did I sleep. It crossed my mind that I can't even recall what I had for lunch, so I just went into the kitchen looking for anything left that could notify me of what I ate . I found nothing, so I just said " I probably grabbed a bite on my way back from work, 3adyy ya3ny ".

On moving around the house, I still couldn't figure out what's wrong all clocks and watches are showing it's 7:35 yet it's still sunny; what the hell is going on " Homma 3'ayyaro el-taw2eet wlla eih" the idea just crossed my mind.
It's not until minutes later that I found the newspaper with Today's date on it. I just stared at it for around like 5 minutes, then I fell on the ground out of laughter.

Yalla, this is a typical Belya :D

Why wasn't I told earlier.

I love my job soooooo much to the extent that I can stay working and performing surgeries non-stop for some long hours.
Why is that ? I have no particular reason. May be because I simply love it, may be because the smile of content and appreciation on the patients' faces makes you forget all the hell time you had to go through or maybe because I have nothing else to do ;) I simply don't know why , and I truly don't care as long as I'm enjoying it.

BUT there's one thing, I hate about my job that comes hand in hand with our work. At some point you have to deliver some bad news to patients as simple as : The patient has cancer and we need to remove a huge part of his face.

How on Earth am I supposed to deliver such news ???????!!!!!!!!!!!!

I really don't know, but I'm trying to figure it out.
It sucks, it really is devastating the look on the patient's face on hearing such awful news. begadd 7aga bashe3a.

I hate the fact that we don't have the luxury of having social workers or psychology trained personnel around

The universal person

If you were given the chance to choose traits from countrys and regions allover the world. Which ones would you choose ?

Here are my choices, ( in no particular order )

- Think like a Japanese
- Be punctuate like a German
- Enjoy life like a Lebanese
- Love like an Italian
- Dance like a Latino
- Strong like an African
- Mysterious like a Russian

Finally, sarcastic as an Egyptian :)

What about you.

Not blogging

I don't know why, I just had nothing to write for more than 2 months now. I even forgot about this space for sometime.

Maybe my blogging days are over, I'll just wait and see.

As for my life, I'm hectically busy at work.
Am leaving for Kuwait for a couple of weeks at the beginning of Ramadan isA.

That's all for now
