Voices Of Youth

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I have been inspired many times on VOY. I'm not so much active nowadays but I try to check in from time to time.
Let's talk about discussions on VOY...
The media, this is a never-ending topic. Does the media affect young people? Is it too biased? I always get drawn to these topics and say the same things over there. Yes, I do. But it's kind of cool!
The Lebanon/Palestine- Israel conflicts, I don't think they'd be discussed if our friend Yonatan wasn't there to respond to every word you say. I used to get involved in these topics a lot but it's hard to keep up and gets boring because they don't realize they're saying the same things over and over and over again.
Religion, this is probably the funnest topic to discuss, but also the place where it is most likely you'll get fights in. The hottest topic nowadays is 'Is Jesus God?' and they're going on and on about it.
And a lot of threads on how people suggest ways to help, or need help with their orgs, and so on.
There're also Stories from people from all around the world about how horrible things are.
How do wars affect people, how can we help. It's hard to list all of the things we discuss.
The really good discussion I'm having these days is about the middle-east with someone from the USA. I've managed to make her see that not all of us are living under the fear of terrorism. That is a really really fun thread.
Here's the link:
The Arabic forum is sort of boring! But VOY just rocks. Even though sometimes spam threads take time to be deleted, even though sometimes offensive threads take time to get a warning. Even though some discussions lead nowhere. I just Love VOY!
I've joined YFCI and A2I through VOY, I've grown to be a caring person there. I've learned about communism, socialism, capitalism, Hinduism, and so many other things.
It's not the same as it was a year ago but it is still rocking. I never thought I'd learn this much from VOY and gain the experience I have. I've learned how to control my anger and always be nice even when I know what it being said is complete nonsense. I've gained the most azazing friends (online and offline) ever.
Join VOY if you haven't and get your voice heard...

My Future

My ideal life to be:
Marry a prince who will evantually become a king
Become a good-will ambassador for UNICEF
Become a fashion icon

That means I need to be Queen Rania, she's beautiful, very fashionable, works for UNICEF and is married to a king! What more can I ask for?
She's got this ad for UNICEF specialy for Ramadan, I tried searching for it on YouTube but it wasn't there yet.
She's leading the life I would like to lead someday. But again we all need to find a life that suits us, and that is different from other people's life.
Has to be one in a six billion :P

Random (stupid?) question

Is the reason for choosing the age of 18 for being an adult, that our cells reproduction (I study bio -science- in Arabic so don't mind the terms) becomes slower?

Who Cares?

You know while I'm checking my friends' blogs, I tend to check their friends' blogs and those friends' blog and so on... It's fun reading random things from people I don't know. I leave them un-commented mostly but this post had to be noticed. I don't know the person who wrote it and it is probably one of the most selfish things I've ever read.
Check it out:
It's the first time I'm convinced some people deny global warming is happening. And somebody please tell me how obesity relate to global warming??!!
There are a few care-less people in this world, ok maybe more than a few. It's really annoying to see him talk like that.
Well, I just thought I'd share that.

Mr.Paulo on Al-Jazeera

This is an interview with Mr.Paulo Coelho. I love everything he said. Like when he said that we breathe the universe. It's so true.
Also when someone asks him, what makes a successful writer, he says he wished he knew. Ahh, I also loved it when he said there was no contridiction between his life now and his life in the past. I can go on talking how I loved everything he said. You should see the interview yourself.

Ramdan Ramadan Ramadan!

Hey hey hey, it's me reporting after the second week back to school. It's been fun. My classmates are hilarious, they teach us about 'How goats are dangerous to society'. I'm sure you're either confused or thinking I'm making this up. But believe me, I'm not. The girl who taught us, seemed to believe in what she was saying. Yeah so that is only one thing.
We've been playing a lot, laughing at what they teachers say (yeah they say a lot of unreasonable stuff, specially our English teacher, I seriously think I can do a better job that her in teaching, and no bragging)
Our science teacher is a drag as well, other teachers are less annoying. Anyways I won't get into complaining about them yet, we haven't had a lot of lessons yet.
A part from school, life has been sort of aweful. :P ok not that much, but my mouth has gotten me in trouble. I should just get it under control so that I can be at ease while talking, and not fearing to say things that can get me in trouble. Yes, talkative people get into trouble because of what they utter, they need to watch the words that they say. If anything I've said that may sounded a bit unreasonable, a bit... I don't know, a bit annoying or irritating... (unfinished sentence I know) I'll just try to think more before I say anything. :)
So what else?
Oh, yes! Tomorrow is Ramadan, may you have a blessed Ramadan. It's going to be fun I know. Ramadan is always fun, and makes you feel your blisses and remember them. Never forget the blisses you have because then, you'd be ungrateful to what you have in your life. Ahh, I'm excited.
This reminds me that I have to go drink as much water. I feel thirsty. :P I seriously do, I've been chewing this gum since forever and I just sensed it. I need to get it out of my system. Ok, I have some things to do (get rid of this gum and go drink water) so I'll bid you all farewell.
Good night.
Ramadan Kareem

Hey people,
School has started (obviously) and it's been pretty hectic. 10th grade is different from other grades. There is so much going on and we haven't met all of our respected teachers yet.
I think this year should be fun. One time our Islamic teacher was headed to our class and we're like 'Please God let her go to the class next to us' She stood on the door and said is this '10/2'?' and we're like 'Aha :S'
Then she went to the class next to us and it was like a party in the class, cheers and claps and dances of joy. The teacher noticed but that didn't matter at all. :P (btw: I didn't cheer or shout or clap or any of that sort, joy filled my heart though) Teachers are teachers, a bit too annoying though but that's ok. Our exams are not coming from our teachers but from the directorate (?) of Education. It's kind of scary to think about it. Adds more pressure.
On top of all of this, our house has been going under renovation. It feels brand new, which is awesome. Life has been hectic I can say for sure.
Well, that's all for today. Too much happened to tell. I tried to be brief while updating you.
Good night

Josh Groban's interview

Josh Groban simply ROCKS. I just adore him. This is an interview with him that I think it's really good. He talks about changing the world, I really liked it when he said 'It's tough when you're young and broke'
He's right. If you see the video he says his org raised 300,000$. That's awesome!
Check it out...
