I was born in Ramadan 1430 in the hijri, or lunar calendar. The lunar year is now 1434 and today is my birthday again and the first birthday to coincide with my Lunar birth month as well, which is something that occurs once every 33 years only! Happy birthday to me, I’m 19 once more and forever and I have to say being in your 30’s is not bad at all. If anything, somehow it feels better than being in your 20’s. You are much wiser, more accomplished, more confident, less awkward, and people take you more seriously plus you don’t look that old. Read more »

July is Finally Here!

By | July 1, 2012

One of my favorite months of the year is July, and its finally here 😀

Why July? Well, first I was born in July so my birthday which is one of my favorite days of the year is in it. This year however two lovely occasions will occur as well. First, Ramadan will come 2 or 3 days after my birthday and I CANNOT wait for Ramadan to arrive, Allah y3odha o ybale’3na feeh insha2 Allah. Second, my book will be out of the printer soon and will be sold sometime next week -hopefully!-. A third reason is that with July, we know that we are nearer to the winter time in Kuwait which is the best time to enjoy outdoorsy activities of my beautiful country!

So, rejoice, happy July everyone!
