Desperate College Girls

Eposide (1)

Lily Tomlin said once: “When I was growing up I always wanted to be someone. Now I realize I should have been more specific.”

I think I need to respond to this.

“Dear Lily, you did nothing wrong. I was already  more specific. And guess what? It didn’t work. At least, not as I was expecting .. not as any one of them was expecting!”

**********************

For 4 years, I was the Know-it-all-girl because I had quite good knowledge of what I should know. I know my syllabuses, my homework, my friends, my favorite food, the size of my shoes and .. my aim in life. Having put a side that it wasn’t the greatest aim in the galaxy, it was cool enough for me .. it was a good motivation for me to move on .. and guess what again? (you’re gonna be asked to “guess what” a lot. So don’t get bored and start to work on improving your ability to “guess what” without even being asked. Be mature!) It worked like magic.

I can proudly say: I survived the 4 years with the slightest damages. I kept my sanity. I remained in shape, somehow, depending on your definition of “remaining in shape” and how much you weigh. My grades were awesome. My head was full of dreams (P.S. I was idiot). My spirit was young (And I want you to focus on “me using the past form of ‘verb to be’ ” in the last sentence. I am getting old, my friend). The life ahead of me looked so bright (Which turned out later to be optical illusions).

To make a short story even shorter, I was happy. And that was the last time I felt happy. No. Wait! It was the before-the-last time.

**********************************

Ravens .. I love Ravens .. They are so cute and black .. Not to mention, that there is plenty of them where I work. I thought it was natural (P.S. Go back to the previous P.S.). It wasn’t. It was nothing but a WARNING. Who said I was good at understanding warning? Bring me that liar and I will give him my warning.

Anyway, an old myth says that ravens are captured souls. Don’t ask me for more details about the myth because I am not really that much into details. I feel afraid of my own shadow .. and the bathtub when it’s full of water! (Don’t you dare say a word! Okey!?)

It wouldn’t be normal for me to know the whole scary myth, then. Actually, I don’t need to know it .. I may experience it ..  personally !!

Once Upon a Rock

Published April 5, 2015 by Dalia Hazem

Once upon a time, when  things were not known yet, when their names didn’t even exist and where an old planet in a dying galaxy was trying to leave its last imprint in this universe, a strange mountain with a strange rock on top of it stood alone on this planet. The rock was so huge, that nothing could remove it from its place for long ages, but every long age has its own end, no matter how long it lasted.
