اللي تحط الاغراض بالسوبر ماركت تبتسم
حتى الفقير المشرَّد اللي مقطوعة يده اليمين وعلى كرسيّه المتحرك عند محل تارقت يبتسم
رغم قساوة الحياة
قاعد أتنفس الحرية بأرضه وجمهوره
وقاعد آكل برغر بين أرضه وجمهوره
لكن بنفس الوقت البلد ما ترحم
اللي ما يشتغل راح ينتهي هوملِس
اذا تبي تشتغل راح تلقى الشغل
واذا ما تبي تشتغل راح تقعد هوملِس ورافع كرتون كاتب فيه قصة حياته
وتدور على حشيش وويسكي
وتشتغل هني بولاية مينيسوتا
وتسكن بشقة مشتركة مع بنتين
وشغالة بكل اجتهاد
وتم علاجه من مرض القلب بتكلفة امية وعشرين الف دولار
تكلفة لا يستطيع دفعها
وعنده عيال ما شافهم من فترة بسبب الطلاق
وهو يعمل سائق بكل اجتهاد
صومالي ويشتغل سائق الصبح وحارس مواقف سيارات بالليل
يقول انا ما احب اتكلم عن السياسة
ولو ابي اكون سياسي كان درست علوم سياسية
عبدالرحمن يبي يجمع فلوس عشان يدرس تمريض واسعاف
وايضا ماليا يساعد اهله
لا يعرفني ولا اعرفه
ما أحب افكر وايد وأفكر وأحلل سر ابتسامتهم
لأنهم كفار طبعا
ودام الشعب مبتسم انا ايضا مبتسم واعيش لحظة الابتسامة
رغم ان اخوي مريض وقاعد يتعالج
ابتسامتهم هي خليط من الحرية
كل واحد يسعى لتكوين نفسه ويعيش حياته بنفسه
دون قيود الاهل والمجتمع
واذا أخطأ... المجتمع ما يعتبره منبوذ
بالنهاية هو انسان
انشالله راجع لبلد الملائكة اللي لا يخطئون... الكويت
على الاسبوع الجاي
وأترك اخوي مع الوالدة بعد ما تعدى المرحلة الحرجة من العلاج
وعندي شغل بالديرة
بمناسبة غير مرافق مريض
كاليفورنيا وفيغاس ومسخرة وعمات عين مثلا

Hi ppl of blue planet earth,
I'm writing this to you as I am breathing freedom right from the land of freedom.
Though it pains me a little that I had to enjoy this while my brother is having his health issues treated in here.
But you know ... Overall... I'm enjoying this
It's like sour and sweet
And it isn't like I've never been through situation similar to this
My bro Faisal is having kidney issues since the day he got into this world. His right kidney is working 8% now which is considered not functional and the other one is sore but can do the job. He've been through many surgeries in Kuwait and the doctors said he can live with these kidneys and he'll be fine with them though in that time his right kidney was working 20% with growth injection when he was infant.
Starting this year, he just keeps getting fever and back pain every 3 weeks or so . The doctors in Kuwait did just fine collecting data about his kidney issues but his health keeps deteriorating so he applied for US hospitalization.
Tonight he'll be having a surgery to remove the right kidney. It's small and non functional besides it's causing him reflexes of urine and infection in it . plus, the reflexes of urine back into his body results in infection reaching the good sore kidney so they'll have to work on that too but this is for later
Long story short, he'll be having a surgery for small right kidney removal and inshalla it will succeed.
Sigh, this was not the plan as I'm supposed to write something about myself
But why not write something about my brother and the situation am in.
Besides, family is part of myself... That no doubt for a 28 years old guy who got born and raised with his family for 28 years
BTW am in Minnesota state, Minneapolis city. Any one, preferably a girl, there who'd like to say hi let me know 😝

I know.. I know that my activities in social network dropped to its lowest levels recently
That because I was very very very busy lately
And that brings me to an interesting thought
I'm starting to believe that at the end of every year, something "life changing" happens
That was the pattern over the past three or four years
The year starts boring then interesting (mid year) then mind blowing at the end of the year
This year is no different. Except it was mind blowing for good
Firstly, let me review my last year's resolutions which are:
- Change of a career --> Fail
- Continue to take care of my brothers and beat manners into them --> Success... and it will always be :D
- Travel to USA --> Fail... I didn't get the Visa and it's still under processing since October 2012. I have traveled to Australia instead :D
- Buy a new mobile phone --> Success... I have my shiny new Google LG Nexus 5 and I happen to love it :D
Well I feel relatively bad about that I couldn't get a new career
I passed the CCNA Exam and I'm a Certified Cisco Network Associate
I know that it's nothing compared to my peers who may got the PHD level of networking
And I know that I will not work on Cisco Networks at my work place cause all I do is paperwork
But it means a lot to me
It gave me a big boost towards carrying through self development and having more knowledge
And more importantly, it gives me a sense of achievement in my kinda boring life
- Study more. Maybe I'll study CCNP, the professional level of Cisco Networks
- Apply for a Master Degree Program overseas
I make it sounds easy LOL
Well... I'm looking forward to challenges, successes and failures
Before ending the post I'd like to say something to those who are "giving up everything although there's a chance to correct things":
You'll get Emo
You'll feel bad
really really bad
You'll feel the world is so heavy on your shoulders
and it is
But don't give up everything when you still have chance
Maybe "the chance you didn't take" is the one that would've fixed all things up and put you on the right track
Consume all your chances
Don't just give up
Anyways all ppl of blue planet earth,
I wish you a merry Christmas and a happy wonderful year full of great adventures and accomplishments

The chat continues. One topic led to another and we were talking about relationships
I mean better than a community system that suggests long term control of their youths's way of life and behavior.
One freind, a girl with the name "Afrah", said "Waleed... You're seeing things with your own eyes. Others see something different on their own eyes"!
She said that those countries with such way of life have good education. That's why they tend to have good and responsible people.
And that if Kuwait is granted such life, it will be chaos. Boys will make parties everywhere. It just doesn't suit our society.
She said "Education" huh
We can always improve our educational system
The hidden message in all what she said is something like "The age of consent"
Giving youth the freedom to seek the life they want --> parties --> coitus --> chaos
Why does it have to be about coitus?
That reminds me of the "super ultra ultimate limited edition questions" that guys used to toss on every discussion table.
Do you accept that for your sister?
Do you allow your daughter to do that?
If you're asked such questions, what would be your answer?
I used to do the "face palm"
Because it would take me a lot of time going through finding logic & brain farting to find the answer :D
Some people can go as far to say something like "Do you allow your sister go to parties and dance if there is a night club in Failaka?"
Straight to my face
Sigh... I really like those people
The answer is -after going through finding logic & brain farting-:
First of all, my father is still living and kicking. He's the one responsible to allow her to go parties or not. But if you ask me "Do you allow your daughter to go to parties?" I would say it depends because you know there are "good parties" and "bad parties".
"birthday parties" are good parties while "striping parties" are bad parties
But if you insist on giving answer I would say "No"
Why? cause I live defensively. I have to protect the ones I love. I can't let my daughter just wander around a cruel world where everyone looking for raw meat
But at the same time I believe that there is a community, within our society, that allow their beloved young boys and girls to live independent life and protect them at the same time
But as I said, I get too confused to answer these question LOL
You know the pressure, tension and all
Some times I don't even "face palm"
Why do I "face palm"?
I know how brain works in most of the people of this society
I know what are they afraid of
I know what's in their "end of the tunnel"... It's coitus
I was talking about the right of being "independent" but friends keep bringing coitus and link it to "freedom"
That makes me wonder "Are they really listening to me?"
Some how, Afrah changed the subject
She was talking about some weird guys. Two guys to be specific
The first guy I should call him "The scientifically honest" guy
That guy said to his old single sister "I know that you have your needs like eating and drinking. I bet you need sex since you're not married. If you need to have sex, don't worry.
Just let me know and I'll arrange that"
And he does arrange that
-- well, sex isn't basically "a need" for human. That is scientifically proven.
Because we will die if we don't eat or drink but on the other hand we won't die if we don't have sex.
Though I can approve that one would die "inside" from lack of sex LOL --
The other guy is "the Hentai" guy
She said that he told her that he does "wife swap". It's like he make a deal with other couples to do the "wife swap" and they practice it at chalets
So if they were two couples, they book for two chalets
and if they were three couples, they would book three chalets
-- first of all, the chalets part falls under "too much information" milady.
Second, wife swap!... that's gross.
Third, "SAY WHAT... THERE ARE WIFE SWAPPIES IN TOWN!" --
Everybody was in shock from the "wife swap" story. It's when another friend, a guy, interfered to add his story.
-- I should tell you that this friend is an athletic guy. He plays Judo and regularly builds his body in gym. Long story short, he's a handsome black guy with big muscles and six packs that make most of the girls drool -Now that you call "too much info"--
Anyways, He said he met a guy. That guy is a "friend of his friend".
So they became friends, exchanged phone numbers, hangout together and all.
One day that friend told him something like:
" I want you to be a friend who's always with me. You can stay at my family's home whenever you like. You can even hangout with my sisters, like you're one of the family.
And I want you to be with me, hangout together and do shopping together. You choose clothes for me. I can buy you gifts"
-- It turned out that man is gay and that the man is offering something like "Gay marriage" --
As soon as he finished telling his story, Afrah said:
"This is the freedom that Waleed wants"
I can swear that it took me like one tenth of millisecond to react:
FREEDOM ISN'T ABOUT WIFE SWAPPIES
And linking freedom to all those stories is not fair
This time, I had to "face palm"
Wednesday, September 25, 2013
One friend, a girl, talked about how people are dressed these days. She was complaining rather than talking I must say. It was about:
Girls with little to zero hair on one side of their head leaving the other side with long hair
guys wearing low waist jeans with underwear shines out for public to see
Girls showing their sexy curves
Guys showing their extraordinary muscles
among many other things
What's with those people?
How they wear something like that?
It's 3aib "Aiyb"
People shouldn't be allowed to wear that
Guys should be forced to join military to be real men instead of wearing low waist jeans and do weird haircuts
I was in total disagreement with her as I see that everyone should have the freedom to dress as they like.
Most of my friends disagree with me if not all of them though, which I find weird. I thought that they would agree with me but that didn't happen
"You know what's the story behind low waist jeans" one friend, a guy, said
I said "It has some story and I don't wanna talk about it".
I could see it in the eyes of the girls... Yes curiosity it is LOL
It's something about the color of the boxer that shows the "sexual status" of prisoners. It was used as a signal that says "I'm horny and I'm available".
Anyways I told my friend that I know. And I know the story behind punk and the story behind emos as well but I believe that:
Everyone should wear what they want
Everyone can cut their hair the way they like
Everyone should have the freedom to express their own style
UNLESS THEY'RE NAKED... AND THEY AINT
I myself don't like turban. Hate it I should say. I hate silky floral pants too. But I don't go as far to say that women shouldn't be allowed to wear turban
or "Floral pants are not allowed at work place"
or even despise the people who take turban or whatever as their style
-BTW I don't like guys showing their chest hair cause I don't know what does "showing chest hair" supposed to mean. Plus, I don't have chest hair-
And come on guys we travel overseas walking beside nearly naked people and have no problem with that. So why is it when we come back to our home we start complaining about citizens wearing this and that.
Friends keep listing reasons that I see unreasonable
"It isn't beautiful. They shouldn't wear it"
I, myself, have my own standard of beauty. I keep it for myself though. I don't force anyone to follow my "beauty standards" nor do I try to despise non-followers
"Some times I don't blame guys for harassing a girl wearing this"
What is that bullshit?
Then tell me what is the minimum requirements of clothing that would make a girl safe from harassment?
Let me say something to you. I saw guys despise and neglect "tight jeans" girls for "black Abaya and burqa". Following them... flirting with them... and trying to harras them
Harassment will not stop
Unless women wear a big wide black sack that shows nothing... absolutely nothing. Not even eyes. And that is arguable too
"Religion doesn't allow that"
Don't get me started. If you say religion then I would assume you mean the religion that states women are allowed to show face and hands only. Streets filled with women all in black would make our religion.
You got told that this is our religion mate
but in fact... it isn't
Go read history books about Muslim's social life throughout the history of Islam and you'll know what I mean.
Flight crew didn't mention anything about dress code to the passengers coming to Kuwait
Because there isn't any
The chat continues. One topic led to another and we were talking about relationships
To be continued...

It's one of those moments where I wanna stare
I don't wanna stare at something in particular
I just feel the urge to stare
I try to know why I insist on staring
I start to list the things that are not reasons for my sudden urge to stare rather than listing the reasons themselves
So I say
It isn't about getting concerned about how my brothers gonna succeed in their life in the future
It isn't about how that "relatively" big amount of money I have isn't enough to to fulfill my dreams
It isn't about rethinking my life
It isn't about how wrong/right the path I took in my life
It isn't about whether my personality fits the age of 2000s... or should I shape it to fit so
It isn't about doing something else to be like anyone else... instead of doing my thing and be nothing
It isn't about the thought of "I'm the right man in the wrong world"
It isn't about why the world still has poverty while we are manufacturing artificially processed chocolate and milk pills called smarties
It isn't about how people are suffering to get their "own way of freedom" rather than "freedom"
It isn't about how people kill each other in the name of religion
The thing is... I just wanna stare
So I get myself looking at my computer monitor while actually staring at something very very far away
Looking at the monitor is a good way to cover the staring action though
Part of me says I had to stop it
But I can't help it
the other part says just keep this staring at nothing far beyond up
