Close those eyes, close them hard

My happy place is a very weird excentric place, with really really weird music… I can’t identify it, and i can’t replicate the journey every time (I am talking about the “happy place” that we go to when it is you or everyone around you).

I can’t really relate to the need of going to my happy place, but I know that this music is loud and clear in my head, and you know what they say, you better follow that sound (or was it that light??).

Ok, so let me explain what is with the hormonal rage… Today is my first day at a new job. I can’t really identify my feelings or my thoughts, i must say im in a pending state kind of…

We all did it, the “new beginnings”, “fold that paper”, “start over”, etc.

All I can think about is that, they are loud, and i hate the new keyboard…

I know it is not the ordinary “To new beginnings” post, but that is the way im feeling… Maybe I just need sometime…

But you know what, if companies treated their employess good, we won’t leave. I mean working hours are there for a reason, same goes for Evaluation system hence bonuses, promotion and even demotion… and you know what is pissing me even more, is that i spent 2 years learning all the shortcuts and the tricks to avoid traffic to and from my old work (it really takes effort and planing).

Oh well, here’s to new beginnings. (Food is here)


Tweet that RoadTrip!

Waking up at 6 am on a Sunday is not usually my favorite or most wanted thing to do. However today was about something special, ROAD TRIP (and it is also the first round of Lebanese Municipality Elections in Mount Lebanon).

I still like to think about it as a Road Trip (The most tweeted Road Trip ever).

Ok, so the thing is that I volunteered to cover the Lebanese Municipality Elections which is a project by Lebloggers, and I was assigned to cover Baabda and Aley… for more information about the election check: Lebloggers

I’m not an expert on the Shouf area, but I must say it is one of the most beautiful areas I’ve seen. I’m not a big nature fan, more of a windows & doors person and I found what I want (Note to self : go back and really shoot)…

I am also not an expert in citizen journalism but today’s experience was really something, we ( all the Lebloggers team member) actually managed to cover today’s event with the utmost level of professionalism and objectivity… We were a reference even to the main stream media … (*YEY*)

Looking forward to the next round of Municipality Elections, I’m sure that Lebloggers team will grow… but for now, don’t forget to check Lebloggers for photos, videos and articles as well as twitter using the following hashtags:  #lebloggers, #engageleb.

PS : Tomorrow is my first day at my new job, wish me success 🙂 (*will keep you posted, and all i can think about is Maya’s illustration)
