My Sister's Keeper

I was searching online and I discovered that My Sister's Keeper is actually a novel and I didn't know that it is actually a book even that I saw movie. I liked the story of fighting leukemia because it is a violent disease. I am really want to buy this book but I am sure that in Iraq it is not exist! so I tried to download it but I didn't find it so I got desperate and hopeless. I want that book! >_<
I also put a list of books I want to read and I'll start searching about some books in libraries here and I'm sure I won't find most of them and especially they are English. Sometimes I can't find Arabic books how I am going to find English books!
I also tried to buy some books online but I didn't know how, I tried in Amazon but I failed! I want to learn how to shop online and where are the book will be sent? please tell!

About Next Year

I have to read as much as I could so I searched about some websites for reading online and I found two great websites and I'll add them to my favorite websites on the Internet as well as I decided to buy 10 books and reading them through the summer but, problem is the private lessons! I'll be attending private lessons in the summer after the final exams. It's normal for all the pupils to have private lessons in all schools even my school which is the best in Mosul! it helps the pupils to get a good average, but with some pupils, it is not helpful! I think there is something with them, they repeat the year 3 times to get a good average and the good news, they never give up and it is a good thing.
And as I said I have to read a buy books but in the summer I won't have enough time for reading, all what I have to do is just studying for the 6th grad.. and all my future depends on the next year so I'll my best.
The exams will finish tomorrow and it'll start again in Wednesday, that means we only have 2 days to rest, I got bored of this but it doesn't matter.
I also find a funny websites called SparkNotes. There is some cool stuff their, check it out!

I need a break!

Hello people

today, I discovered that I need a rest of everything. I wanted to spend a couple of days alone in nature! I don't need persons, Mobile and Laptop even that I can't live without them. It would help me to get rid of some stress, especially before the next year because it going to be hard and not easy!
And I also need a MP3 player with a lot of sonatas, some symphonies and some Opera of course.
I love Piano and I would like to learn how to play a Piano.. but in Iraq,it isn't even existed! so may be I should just hear it.
May be some day, I'll buy a piano ^_^ .

An English Report

The English teacher ordered from us a report contains of one page about a subject, he suggested to write about figures but I didn't! I wrote about Harvard University because it is really deserves my words and it is a great university and I respect John Harvard for his creation for this fantastic university. the following is my report:

Harvard is a private university located in Cambridge, US. It was incorporated as the best university around the world according to Times newspaper. It is also a member of the Ivy League. Harvard is the oldest institution of higher learning in the United States and currently comprises ten separate academic units.
It was established in 1636. Initially called "New College", after that it was renamed “Harvard College” in March 13, 1636. it was named after John Harvard.

A lot of students from Harvard got prizes from all over the world. Seven presidents of the United States have graduated from Harvard, including the two presidents John F. Kennedy and Barrack Obama.

Harvard today has nine different sections. Listed below:
School of Arts and Sciences
Medical school
School of Dental Medicine
Law school
Business School
School of Design
School of Engineering
School of Education
Harvard Kennedy School of Government
It’s competing other universities like Yale University and Stanford University.
Most of Nobel prize winners and in all different sections were graduated from Harvard as well as other prizes.
Harvard through the years becomes very famous and hard to get.

New Blog: Glitters


Although that I don't know much a bout art! I made a new blog that, I would like to share my favorite drawings and portraits for famous artists.
I've faced only one problem, it became in Arabic and I don't know why, if any one can help me to change it to English please let me know. Thank you.

As much as I tried to draw, I couldn't find the gift inside me so i gave up! and as I failed to express my feelings with colors, I became very interested in art so I decided to gather my best artists and portraits in a blog.

In Iraq, it is obviously no body interested in art and such things!
I've put 300 portraits in my Mobil, when people see it they say: "You're so complicated!" am I ?
A person who is very interested in such things, he shouldn't announce this in public!
That's us! this matter really disappoints me!

Gibran Khalil Gibran

Gibran Khalil Gibran bin Mikhā'īl bin Sa'ad
جبران خليل جبران بن ميخائيل بن سعد

Birthday date:January 6, 1883 – April 10, 1931

He was a Lebanese American artist, poet, and writer. Born in the town of Bsharri in Lebanon

The writer Gibran. I read most of his books and liked them .. there is no words could show my happiness when I read for him. He gives me wings to fly in space, I could feel his taste in choosing words and thoughts, He is magnificent!

They say to me in their awakening, "You and the world you live in are but a grain of sand upon the infinite shore of an infinite sea."
And in my dream I say to them, "I am the infinite sea, and all worlds are but grains of sand upon my shore."

I read for him:

Spirits Rebellious
The Broken Wings
Sand and Foam
The Prophet
The earth gods
... and I read selected shorter works.

I can hear his voice shinning as a light in the dark, Gives me strength and push me to breath and thinking about what he'd think!

The Broken Wings
A Tear and A Smile

A tear and a smile

The strong shore is my beloved
And I am his sweetheart.
We are at last united by love, and
Then the moon draws me from him.
I go to him in haste and depart
Reluctantly, with many
Little farewells.

I steal swiftly from behind the
Blue horizon to cast the silver of
My foam upon the gold of his sand, and
We blend in melted brilliance.

I quench his thirst and submerge his
Heart; he softens my voice and subdues
My temper.
At dawn I recite the rules of love upon
His ears, and he embraces me longingly.

At eventide I sing to him the song of
Hope, and then print smooth hisses upon
His face; I am swift and fearful, but he
Is quiet, patient, and thoughtful. His
Broad bosom soothes my restlessness.

As the tide comes we caress each other,
When it withdraws, I drop to his feet in

Many times have I danced around mermaids
As they rose from the depths and rested
Upon my crest to watch the stars;
Many times have I heard lovers complain
Of their smallness, and I helped them to sigh.

Many times have I teased the great rocks
And fondled them with a smile, but never
Have I received laughter from them;
Many times have I lifted drowning souls
And carried them tenderly to my beloved
Shore. He gives them strength as he
Takes mine.

Many times have I stolen gems from the
Depths and presented them to my beloved
Shore. He takes them in silence, but still
I give fro he welcomes me ever.

In the heaviness of night, when all
Creatures seek the ghost of Slumber, I
Sit up, singing at one time and sighing
At another. I am awake always.

Alas! Sleeplessness has weakened me!
But I am a lover, and the truth of love
Is strong.
I may be weary, but I shall never die.

words by: Gibran

Our Absence

In last Wednesday , I was going to have a chemistry exam .. but I didn't! because all the students were absent in Tuesday after the election (it was sooo hard). The headmaster was angry indeed, he didn't let us take the exam, he thinks that he punished us .. so we didn't take the exam and it was normal for us actually because no body remembered what he studied!
I went home after school ..

mom: "How did you do in the exam?"
me: I didn't take it
mom: what!? why?

I explained for her the matter

mom: what are you going to do?
me: relax, it is not only me :)

... and that's it

Purple Fingers !

As most of you knew, the Iraqi election was today, it is done with a number of explosions in Baghdad and other cities of Iraq.
I and my family went to the voting center (is it the correct word?) and of course as I said I couldn't vote, I've just went to there for fun and most of people voted with no damages ! I went their as I said, entered from the main gate, walked away to find the names of my family and the workers their were so fool ! they can't say the Arabic letters alphabetically ! although that they are a student in colleges ! I was like >_<
so we continued our way for "VOTING", they entered into a room and I stayed outside,they voted, and the worse thing ever is they had to put their fingers in ink and it'll be in your finger for nearly a month. After that we went to my aunt's house, my cousin made a cake, we ate it with tea and then we went back to our house.

In these days, I watched a movie (The Lovely Bones) and I liked the story.
I read a little bit and studied -of course- that's it and I'm so eager to watch (The Oscars) I'll see it tomorrow because it'll be 2:00 AM and it is too late.

I'm sure that I've forgot something to mention, but I can't remember what it was !

+ The Previous Post

I felt I didn't talk enough in the last post , so I decided to talk a little more ..
Today we went to my aunt's house in the afternoon, we stayed for the dinner. we talked,laughed and enjoyed and I'm actually love being there after they built a new house and it is far from our house (kind of) maybe because we used to be together in all situations and because we lived side by side for 18 years, that means we shared all the memories of happiness and sadness together too. And another aunt was near to both of us too, but she is now living in Syria with her family because they got an accident.
The election will be in Sunday 7th march, the general situation is calm until now !
The people are doing the shopping in a crazy ways, they are afraid of running out of food and stuff and the others don't have money to eat or sleep!

P.S: I don't know if there is somebody reading here or not! but if you do PLEASE leave your comment because I can't do stuff for no one, I'm doing this for you, keep in touch.

I can't write any more, too bad .. see you later, bye.

Still Alive

Hello ..

I didn't send any message for couple of weeks so I wanted to write something here
The election taking the biggest part of our life these days, every body talks about his opinion about the list that he is going to vote for. Legally I can't vote because I'm under the legal age which is 18.
Most people are going to vote because they still have some hope and others won't ! because they say it is just promises, no body did any thing since the last election and no body deserves our help to win in this election. And I say, Both are right from my point of view and surly we'll see what is going to happen after the election.

From my life side, 21/2 was my birthday (as you saw in my profile) we brought a cake and some sweets, my aunt came to our house and we celebrated. Best wishes to me and best life days.

My school is doing well, we stop attending the classes before yesterday, we'll stay at home for a week and that would be a spring vacation.

That's all for now ... Bye.
