Free-writing

Once upon a time, almost a year ago. ROB nominated me to do a free-writing challenge. It’s a challenge where I dump thoughts on this post and leave the words as they are, WITHOUT EDITING. This post is the reason why I have to edit, just how random my train of thought is and how many mistakes I make.And I DO like talking! (You’ll know why I randomly said that when you finish reading the post) Just when it’s with people I am close to or when the subject of conversations is around topics I am passionate about, I just can’t bring myself to talk just about anything.  I can’t make any sense if I don’t edit my horrifying grammar. I feel so weak and vulnerable. Here I go-


I made a mistake on the first try, so this is my second attempt. Not on the first try. Well, actually on the first try. More like in the first likne. I mean ‘line’. Boomchicaboom. Boom-Chicka-Maro. Maro-chica-maro-re.

The song basically says to kill rats. ‘Chica” means “rats” in my country, not girls/ DSSo….I mean so the song isn’t telling you to kill your girl-friends, lol. It says, “In the morning, in the afternoon, kill them rats. kill them rats”. I don’t know how who I mean, actually cqame…I mean came up with this song. They were probably infested with rats. It’s a real song. Here’s the link to the original song: LINK. It should be added to the wierd side of youtube. “maro chica maro re…maro chica maro ree….”

The main reason I  am writing this post bis….is because I feel like I am losing my self. Myself. Well, I don’t mean starting a post on a topic like that ranodomly, but I mean that I’ev been writing less and less……..personally since my IAL’s tests. It’s gonnna be a whole year of torture. Educational torture. “Maro education, maro re” ugh, no point to singing, education is always lurking around me, jumping at me from time to time. Lurking it’s ugly educational head. No that doesn’t make sense. I mean…ji….hiding it’s ugly educational head. Hiding, no wait, what’s the difference between this and ‘lurking’? Not much.Maro Mon maro ree…..amar mon-reeee maroo ree…..I am becoming quite……

Noooo. HMosquitoes are biting me. At least I am not those lost refugee-kids, like those kids who lost their parents there in Aleppo have serious mosquito bites and it’s worrying, they say that all night is spent on scratihing their bodies. BPoor things don’t have mosqueto nets, but how would you fix a mosquito net outside? there’s been so many terrible news of late. I’ll be reading less news from now on, just so I can focus more on studying. Whether I read the news or not, my reading isn’t doing any change.

Yesterday I straight out said to a girl that I didn’t like talking. NO! I wasn’t trying to be mean! I LITERALLY thought she would get it because she is very quiet too, and I thought we would silently relate on being introverts. But she was surprised and just went, “Waaaaa,, don’t you like talking?” Anti-social freak I am, I nerviously replied, “No”.

 

Productivity Spreedsheet

Progress

I am such an egoistic bastard, writing my name first all the time, I didn’t mean to though lol I just realized it after seeing this xD

Thanks to Dizzy Chick , Willy, Mel, and Wendy for playing along!:) I think I did as much as I would expect myself to do (teehee). On Week 11, I did absolutely not-much😮 I had period that week.😥

Alright before I go on to my next week’s plans, here are some tweets-

The goat-quotes, ahhh….

Anyway, this week’s task won’t be a daily task for me😮 More like weekly goals (even though keeping weekly goals didn’t work for me before, but it might now, since I am tracking my progress on MS word).

  1. Pick out 21 problems from my accounting questions
  2. Finish Chapter 3 & 4 of Maths
  3. Exercise for one hour

Ugh. Work. But I have to do them.

Do you want to take part in the Monday Productivity Challenge? (Well? You do, I know you do, I know it good). All you have to do is just list three tasks/goals you want to get done by next Monday in the comments section below. Then on next Monday, write about how you did the past week😮 For last Spreedsheet, click HERE.

News-Topic INTERESTS?

Here’s some of mine-

News Interests.png

I get (almost) daily updates on news on the above topics. Read about US-elections, Syria, Putin, different wars, updates on Israel-Palestine conflict and Argentina war, some states-relationships and in which battlegrounds US-made weapons found (I have to update this one because I get news on US as well, I just want to know about the weaponry-finding-a-dingdings). Things like that.

What news interest you?

The Trolls happened

I recently wrote a tweet saying I thought it was racist of Blake Shelton to presume that someone who was speaking in a foreign language was a  “dickhead’ to who needed to “speak English” so that he knew what “he was planning to bomb”. And then the kids, the unsupervised kids online, the kids happened >_< (I am Mon, @Mon_Blogs_Life by the way)

Troll 1.png

I don’t want to give any of these people any sort of publicity (no such thing as bad publicity) so I censored their names. One guy said it in a condescending tone that my “safe-space” was violated (while not being able to ignore my tweet on Shelton :o) If calling out on racism is safe-space violation, call me the Safe-Space-Violation….er? No, that sounds very wrong.

Anotha one!

Troll 2.png

I was talking about the part where Blake said that since the Dems attacked the republicans (which happened both ways in the past, repubs to dems and demb to repubs), and then commenting “tell me, who were the crazy ones here?” Shows that he made an overgeneralization on the part of democrats. Blake also praised Trump in the past on his ability to speak his mind like he could.

Anyway, under my response, a person responded that “haters have nothing better to do” while at the same time she previously told me “manned up and apologized”. AFTER which she favorited a post by someone who was part of a White-supremacist group, this person who told me, “Not ONE phrase was racist, grow up!” As shown below-

Troll 4.png

@abossytalks spoke out against this person.

Troll 3.png

This same person has sent me multiple tweets, spamming up twitter because my one tweet expressing my opinion on Blake…..went against her cult-like worship of the celebrity >_< I say cult-like because it IS cult-like worship when you’re just spamming hate on the other person😮 Anyhow, I told her to stop, saying that she was sending in too many tweets and jamming up my notifications, to which she replied, “Not enough if you’re still whining about BS” Who’s to say, “Still”? And BS as in Blake Shelton or Bull-Shit?

Troll 5.png

My one post on “whining” and her spamming my twitter. She told me my one response to her multiple tweets was wasting her time.

Troll 6.png

I DID not respond to her anymore because I didn’t want any more tweets coming from her >_<

LOL, follow me on twitter- @Mon_Blogs_Life

 

First Impressions…

I’ve decided to make a post in response to the last comment, where you raised an interesting point on how Muslim countries can deal with diversity. The first four paras are what I’ve already written to you, so you can skip them. Ever since I saw this tweet, I wanted to write a post on this, and I thought I would take the opportunity here.

A couple things I want to point out first-

a) I would most probably be the kind of person who wants to go to a cinema AND not want to miss the prayers. Like that lady, obviously. In our religion, you pray TO the God, you don’t pray for attention- that itself is spoken against of. You don’t ‘flaunt’ your deeds.

b) This woman is sitting in a corner praying, and in my belief, because the time was running out to go to her house and THEN pray and by then the required time to do the salat will have ended. Which, if I were at a cinema and late to go home, something I WOULD probably do.

c) My father once prayed on a moving bus with an extremely congested seat where he couldn’t comfortable place his legs, but he prayed through because he was getting late to go home where he could’ve prayed alone. He had to bend in an uncomfortable way, sitting right beside me, and pray because that’s all he could do then before time for salat ran out. Our family had to pray multiple times in public just because time was running out for the prayer-time to be over.

d)Cleanness in salat is very important. Notice that she sat on a chair instead of on the ground, so it showed that she needed a clean space to be able to pray (not to mention, all the other parts of salats that involve putting your head to the ground). It’s in Canada, so it’s obliviously not a place where there are prayer rooms, it being a secular country.

Alright, now that I got those our of the way.

I believe people from every religion should be able to pray whenever they want- because…..they’re just praying. It doesn’t have to do with you or me. And not every country can accept public prayers. I doubt that anyone from other religions would be able to freely pray in a strictly Islamic state.

I just want to say-  I am not here to represent a group. And I believe a lot of my other Muslim brothers and sisters would agree that we are individuals with our individual qualities. We are here to represent ourselves, with our individual deeds. Not to show for a group. No one is responsible for anyone’s deeds but themselves, as spoken of in our religion itself.

I know that Canada is an awesome country, it’s the one hope I had after US had those two candidates. I know Canada pretty much rocks! And it’s for those reasons I want to go there because opportunities in countries like mine aren’t much. Anyhow…

And I do know this- When in Rome, do as the Romans. I would know this best in my own country where certain things, which are totally fine in other countries, are not okay here. Does not mean I agree that people shouldn’t be allowed to be themselves- my personal value is that as long as it doesn’t have anything to do with me, let them be.

But the main point of this post is, what one group from a faith does- isn’t a reflection of the entire faith. The man in the tweet was pointing and going, “Oh, look. An immodest flaunter, we have!” It seems like over-generalization is his thing, AND that’s fine with me, as long as you don’t inflict on my rights. As with praying as long as it isn’t going against with others’ rights. Again, that’s my thoughts. And what other leaders do isn’t a reflection of me or many other Muslims.

Well, I think that’s basically it. I know, I wanted to end this post really nicely, but that’s all I could do😥

Other than the whole, “I ain’t no one’s likeness, I am too good and uniquely fresh, you know you want to be a Mon like me” (Joking! About the last bit) I was just wondering how easily it could’ve been me or my own mother that was praying there. And then this stranger with a video-camera would record and make such big statements. All I’ve learnt from that video is, even if I can’t find a prayer room or a quiet place to pray in Canada- if I sit quietly in a corner and do pray, it’s not going to be okay (in such an advanced country, which is kind of a shame…….please don’t judge me! I am nice!)

When in Rome, do as the Romans. And now that I learnt this, I now KNOW I can’t do it. That’s fine. But these rules should be spoken of in that country, made more clear of- people should do something about it. Instead of judging on a women sitting knees bent on a bench. The man who tweeted that video has a lot of followers. More than me! It’s sad, I am more fun and less not-fun than that guy. It’s not fair. I am less judgy on first meeting with people. Karma shouldn’t ignore m, that bastard karma.

I hope you got the answer from this lone-y. You are quite right in your statement that Muslim countries are much stricter. I won’t disagree, I know it so well! But the main point being- no group- whether it does good or bad- does not reflect how good or bad I am. I really wanted to say something in response to the guy who was spreading such negativity- that Tarek guy on twitter- you’re a mean one Mister…..I know the me also being someone who can trust the media without doing research, but really……you know, we’re all individuals. I am an individual, what I do doesn’t reflect anyone other than myself.

I was very scared of posting this because…you know…politics and stuff. But please no mean comments, I honestly cry over things people say to me online (I am dead *sniff* serious!)- don’t go breakin’ my heart; you could if you tried.

National Relaxation Day

I’ll celebrate this special day by sharing some relaxing videos…..some ASMR videos :))

If you don’t know what ASMR is- it’just s a weird way of relaxing through rhythmic  calming sounds, calming whispers, relaxing visuals (and movements) and role-plays (that might have all of those). Here are some ASMR videos that works for me-

I rarely watch role-plays, but if I were to recommend one, it’s by this French guy-

If they work for you too and if you want me to share more of such videos, let me know!

Monday Productivity

Yes, I was late with this post. Today is Tuesday *mad pouting*

Got some inspirational tweets there. Now it’s time for how (cough) well I did this week! I give myself a 20% this week.

Anyway (lol), this week’s task is to follow my intuition…..for friggin’ 4 hours a day (what kind of a goal is that!?). Because I am too lazy to act on my intuition even. And a lot of times, I would save myself from a lot of mess and get a lot done if I just listened to myself. Anywhoo, that’s all and here’s one last tweet for y’all

Did you make plans last week? How did the previous week go? What are your plans for this week?

(P.S The whole monthly spreadsheet will be coming soon, if I listened to my intuition, it would’ve come sooner)
