Life is a series of choices. Every step is a choice, an option, a decision. We try our best to make these choices based on what we know. What we pick may not be based on what is right and what is wrong, but what we believe in our minds and hearts. Whatever we do decide, we have to compromise. It is always one or the other.

N. Backstage: Latest Thoughts

  • I am now the Vice President of Membership at the Al-Koot Toastmasters.
  • Thank you to those who congratulated me on my job!
  • I have not had time to blog, since I blog mostly at work. Hence, I’m actually very busy (mostly..)!
  • Facebook’s application Friends for Sale has become the biggest thing to hit me since blogging.
  • I am eating healther, and haven’t had a soft drink in quite a while.
  • My uncle shared an apple with me, forcefully. He’s a great (old) man, and I am grateful but that was a little too much!
  • I ALWAYS think of great posts, I forget to note them down, and they totally slip my mind.
  • I’ve been expanding my mind a lot, now I’m even more open-minded and it is freaking me out lol.
  • I love my friends, and everyone I care about. Those who aren’t my friends, I care about them too, just not as much.
  • I’ve got to watch my stress levels.
  • I need to buy a Digital Camera and actually use it.

  10. Amethyst |

    It’s good to know that you’re alive and well.

    Congratulations.

    7aram your uncle! Be nice;\

    Shsalfat your new poll?

  11. Laialy_q8 |

    I love short posts … they make me smile ^_^
    congrats on the position at toastmaster :)

  12. suspic |

    You’re open to new things..?

    Want some weed? A muscular man..?

    I keed, I keed. About your post, just write the title as a new message in your phone and then save it as a draft. I have an awful short term memory, so I forget things.

    Don’t act cool and record an audio clip though going “Bloggers Log, Starfleet 598..”.

  13. Navy Girl |

    congrats N you deserve the best :)

    congrats again ;P

    I dont feel like blogging lately either :/

    hate facebook duno why !

    good for you !!

    start drafting them or write down notes you lazy boy :P

    just dont get tooo over-minded oo start walking outside naked ;P lol

    good for mr.big heart :D

    dont get too stressed out .. mo zeen

    hate cameras ..

  14. Swair |

    Eeeeee, who nominated you balla? :p *turns into a true spotlight lovin’ Leo*

    Friends for Sale is CRAZY! A wise someone said “woah, you’re selling faster than Macs” :p
    I’ll take that as a compliment :p

    Being forced to eat half an apple is better than being forced to eat a meat-covered pizza! lucky you ;p

    Like suspic suggested, write it as a new message then save as a draft.. That’s what I do when I’m at work and not near my papers and desk..

    I need to watch my stress level too.. yalla, abi vacation :/

  15. Shoush |

    Congrats on ur position as vice president. Kash5a. ;) As for the digital camera, everyone shud own one and actually use it. I can’t live without mine. I literally can’t leave the house without it. And when i do by mistake, i hate myself becuz i mite find something photo worthy and not hav my camera in hand.

  16. Angelo |

    - Again Mabrook 3ala the new job. You certainly deserver it.

    - Yeah, I get like million requests to add the “Friends For Sale application in my profile but I keep ignoring them constantly.

    - Man it’s been awhile since I drank a soda. Water FTW :)

    - I had the exact same problem with the posts delimma but they slipped outta my mind the next day.

    - The same goes for Digital Camera.

  17. FourMe |

    Congrats.. wish you all the best. Oh friends For Sale damn addictive, so what’s your price tag? :p

  18. KJ |

    You got a new job?!

  37. Nasser |

    MiYaFuSHi,
    Thanks! Well the apple was originally his, he said it’s good here have a bite! and so I was reluctant! “he said here take it! bite here! and here! see this is the good part! Here take it! keep it eat it!” lol!

  38. Ri |

    The questions are good, N. Welcome them, embrace them, nurture them. You may not get instant answers, but as long as you’re considering new ideas and the questions they raise, you’re moving in the right direction. Towards logic, and intelligent thought.

    QUESTION EVERYTHING!

    A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions.

    Oliver Wendell Holmes quotes (American Physician, Poet, Writer, Humorist and Professor at Harvard, 1809-1894)

  39. Nasser |

    Ri,
    Very true, really good quote. The questions are getting deeper and deeper, and its all good.

  40. Navy Girl |

    if they are tooo close step back few steps ooo if they are very far step ahead 3aaad !! your making such a fuss ;P

  41. FourMe |

    by the time you find me the price would of changed :p btw now that’s an accurate poll and yes i voted :)

  42. Nasser |

    Navy Girl,
    hehe, well I tried to take a picture of this glittery hummer on the road tonight and it didn’t work cause it was a little far, and my cam has bad lighting and a bad shutter speed so the picture was all hazy :p

    FourMe,
    Yeah.. lol It seems sometimes its just slow to make money on there! I’m glad you approve of the poll this time!

  43. SHISH |

    Vey Coool Blog…
    and interesting .

    Keep it up:)

  44. ::: ShoSho ::: |

    Hey Congrats on Toasmasters! I would love to be there one day, it looks interesting!

    LoL, we tend to buy stuff sometimes and barely use them, not the case with my camera but sometimes I buy appliances like say a pop-corn maker or a waffle maker , not really important, and not use it!

  45. Mai |

    Mashalla! MabrooOoK =) VP sounds COOOOOL!

    Atmanna stop drinking soft drinks ! w eat healthy food!

    Buy me digital cam m3ak :P

  46. Nasser |

    Shish,
    Thanks! you too! :)

    Shosho,

    Mai,
    Allah ebarek eb 7ayatech! Enshalla you can do that, it takes patience :p Enshalla men e3yony!

  47. Music Site |

    Congradulation for the new work, I hope the best for you, but as we say with higher positions come big responsibility, but don’t let the stress come on you, try to spend time with the family and friends, cause at the end no one would help or be with you at the hard time but only them,

    wish you the best,
    Regards.

  48. Nasser |

    Music Site,
    Thanks, the new job has more convenient working hours which I hope is for the best :)

  49. asoom |

    ok, I want a 4-slot toaster, not a 2 slot one

  50. Nasser |

    Asoom,
    A 4 slot.. oooh.. that will be a little difficult to find, nonetheless, I’ll find and send you the finest toaster, with a bag of freshly made bread for you to toast and enjoy wholeheartdly!

  51. Shaymaa |

    Mabrook on toastmasters and the new job! About the apple sharing story, lol, I think it’s my favorite from the list. I wish you all the best…. Enjoy life!

  52. Intlxpatr |

    Love it that you are a toastmaster, but you just lost your anonymity! Or did you ever have it? hahahahahahaha!

    Buy yourself a small digital camera, one that you can carry everywhere. Once you get totally addicted, buy yourself a larger one with a significant zoom. But keep the little one in your pocket. When you have the camera with you, photos just appear!

    Keep that camera next to the notepad with scribbled notes for the next blog entry!

  53. Nasser |

    Shaymaa,
    Thanks! Ajma3een enshalla :D

    Intlxpatr,
    lol, well I had it, but it was quite negligible! I don’t intend to keep my anonimity. My original idea is to reflect who I am in all of my “states” if that makes sense. Thanks for the camera tips! I’ll get one tomorrow or very very soon enshalla :)

Reserved, going to add something here later.
