Ahoy There! I'm Haneen Ibrahim, a mad Linguist, who teaches children, cheers for FC Barcelona and reads a bit too much.
I also mix all that in the goblet whenever I return from a voyage in a parallel universe by the TARDIS and come up with some crazy fiction, this I guess makes me a writer in the real world.
Wow it’s been
a while since I last blogged. It’s the Adha Eid holiday week and I’m home
studying and hanging out, the first three days (Eid was Saturday) were quite
stressful. But what I know is I missed blogging. I missed you guys and I
certainly missed my cute Kindergarten kids (nice to be called Miss Haneen,
How are you
everyone? How’s life been and what dreams were you perusing? I hope some of you
made magic, intoxicating magic.
I feel like I
was tumbling about in a tunnel or a cave for a long time and that I have
finally reached the light, I’m out into civilization again and I feel exhausted,
in the best kind ever, like it was a real journey. I feel rejuvenated, can’t even
remember when was the last time I dipped into the pool of depression and that’s
of the reasons I went all low profile this time is I hated how the blog looked,
the font, my writing, my topics everything, I couldn’t stand anything! But I
didn’t have the time nor energy to make an extreme makeover cause that is what
it needs, or what can satisfy moody me anyway. once I clear my head from
academics I'll get to work on the new look, now I’ll feed my routine-hater self small chunks
things. I finished
Danielle Laporte’s The Desire Map and it was really something. Thanks to
it I learned a useful way to organize my whole month, I tried a lot of methods
before but this one sounds the right match in this phase. Currently I’m reading
through Michael J. Losier’s Law of Attraction: The science of attracting
more of what you want and less of what you don’t. This topic falls into my
orbit of interests. I think it will be a good read.
I got out too,
been meeting people and socializing, impressive ha!
And I watched
that lovely Korean Drama “Rooftop Prince” and the beautiful
bittersweet story ignited something inside me, an outpouring of strong
emotions. I need this kind of thing every now and then I’m a writer after all,
to be inspired is key for me.
Barca? With only one
defeat in The Champions league against Paris Saint Germain 3-2 (that is still
not very dangerous with their 2 away goals) and one tie with Malaga in la lega
the team under Luis Enrique looks winner material. Everything is so interesting
about the games lately cause there are many new faces and tactics, whether comers from other teams
like the wonderful Rakitić or from La Masia like the unstoppable
and Munir El Haddadi, and of course because the team plays under
Iniesta’s lead as Captain (he is a great Captain by the way) meanwhile, Messi, who
gets to be Captain a lot lately also, is on fire, Neymar is on fire too but for
a different reason, the latter for scouring and the former for killer passes. Both Bravo
and ter stegen are
promising keepers and Jérémy Mathieu is an experienced defender, FINALLY!
New blood: from upper left Munir El Hadaddi La Masia's sensation,
the strong man Rakitic, down from left Stegen, Bravo the keepers and Mathieu in defense
and Mundo Deportivo announced it:
Messi & Neymar the Machines!
And to make
things even better Xavi, yes our very own Xavi is still on board :D he didn’t
leave!, Enrique asked him to stay and he did! I’m so freaking thankful.
Xavi the heart & soul of FC Barcelona
Ramblings. I want to get
inside a rocket and fly to Madagascar, and Comoro islands and I want to visit
Japan and Tunisia and write about all these places, I want to hop into a time
machine and go 2 or 3 hundred years in the future and see how the world will
be, how Sudan will look like and how Africa will evolve.
I have been a
farer for a while this time, I’m thankful my feet have reached solid ground and
although I can hardly wait for my next voyage I will be immersing myself into
the boons of land and feel gratitude, cause I sure feel grateful for
& Artzy stuff. I googled
some Japanese YA novels covers for inspiration and got these
New Moon haha
cover, and I adore the vertical writing, it gives the designer enough space to create,
i.e. make magic yes, thank you! :) whether Japanese, Korean or Chinese I am
going to learn one (Or all) of these languages one day, now I need to master Spanish.
Wow! This is the
real deal. This boy (without the glasses) can easily be my Mark! Classy, young
and treats his sword like a musical instrument.
Ah! I don’t
know why but these covers have hit my romantic cord and I’m going all swoon :’)
(now why did I
have to go and say that word ‘swoon’? I hate it :<)
And at the end
I had to show you this cause I’m one of those writers who want pictures in
their books and this is so gorgeous, I think I’m capable of doing my own artwork
in my books, difficult yes but very doable :)
