The personal blog of a not-so-typical half English/ Egyptian girl in her 20's rambling about her life, friends and everything else. Don't read if you can't handle her dark sense of humor or moodiness.

Tuesday, March 20, 2007

I know this sounds crazy. I'm so excited and in such a hurry now I can't explain, but I'm preparing for, may be, the most amazing experience of my life. I'll tell you all next time. Can't spoil the surprise now.

Oh and by the way you all thought I was hiding something from you when I told you about that guy (half Lebanese, half English) last time, but I really was NOT! I mean I swear there's nothing to say. We haven't even been out. He asked me out actually but I turned him down. I don't need the confusion and distraction now. I mean he's very sweet and I saw him ONCE later and I was with Emma and we talked a lot. We only emailed and talked online and that was that. He wanted more, but as I said he's NOT the one for me. What's WRONG with that?!

I'm so happy (and proud since well...I started it :P) so many people have answered the tag. I'll go read you all now :) Here are mine:

1. What are your ambitions, things you hope to achieve in life and what are your goals?

I have many dreams. I actually don't know where to start! I want to be a well-known chef and have my own restaurant or even bakery one day. I want to travel the world. I want to write a novel one day. I want to be happy and get married. And I also want everyone around me to be happy. This is VERY important for me and that includes my parents, family and friends.

2. What is marriage to you?

Friedrich Nietzsche said, "It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages."

I couldn't agree more. For me marriage has no definitions. It's an eternal friendship and absolute love, acceptance of who the other person is and living WITH not against that. It's giving without questioning and being happy without asking why. Am I making any sense?

3. What are the traits that must be present in YOUR someone?

Honest, handsome, loyal, loving, romantic, tender, caring, understanding, attractive, he must have a great sense of humor, not a workaholic, but not lazy either, intellectual, fun to be with, has a great mind and his own way of thinking, hopeful, religious, NOT moody or a miser, does not smoke, does not have 1243 girl friends (or exes), can not be abusive in any form (and you'll be surprised to know abuse exists A LOT), does not yell, must love and take care of me ;)

4. Do you think having a child (or conceiving one) in the first year of marriage is a must/obligation?

NO! But if he wants that, we can talk and see what's best for us.

5. Are there any illnesses you suffer from?

I'm allergic and used to be asthmatic years ago. I'm also overweight (or pleasantly plump as I like to call it) so if that's an illness I should I mention it.

6. Are you social? Who are your friends?

I'm not really that social. I have many friends and I go out with them when I have the time or feel like it. I don't like parties or crowds much though.

7. What's your relationship with your parents/brothers/sisters?

I argue with my father from time to time but I love him so much. Mom and I are very good friends and I am a lonely child :(

8. What are your hobbies? How do you like to spend your free time?

Reading, writing, baking and cooking, walking, listening to music and watching TV.

9. Do you do any voluntary/charity work?

Right now, no.

10. How would you feel if my mother or yours interfered in our relationship or life later?

I don't think I'd be okay with it :D
