Thank ya 2010 !!

From a very long time I was waiting the year 2010 , I don't know why ?
I was always saying I'll do this by 2010 , or by 2010 this will be done, may be because its a good looking number or may be because its the year that I'll be 25 which is a unique year in everyones life, whatever was the reason is , but I was always saying to my friends while I am in high school I'll marry in 2010, to my college friends I'll travel out of the country by 2010, and to my close friends I'll be muscular by 2010.

Even thought nothing of this happened, but one fact remain obvious , thats 2010 was always in my mind for a reason or another, and once its started I realized that at the end of it I'll be 25 - Old - & at the end of it nothing of what I planned gonna be true , I thought its gonna be so disappointed year & will be nothing close to the image I drawn and drown in my mind years ago .

But 2010 didn't disappointed me at all , It was better than I imagined it carried for me a huge success, an epic progress & a great experience.

I am just Imagining my self a year ago in January 2010 and now while I am in January 2011, and God what a long ride did I took !! It was amazing , this year for me was a concentration of a bunch of years's progresses & Improvements, what happened through this year should have happened by 2012 or 2013, Not just because the things I've done through this year was great but because - which is more important - that I came from far away, very far away .

I didn't Done so much though, I Didn't got my PHD yet, didn't master everything at work, didnt break a world record or appeared in a Tv show , but I just put myself back on the right track after everyone Including myself thought and believed that I am already knocked out, or to be precise I was already Knocked out, But with plenty of God blessing plus a lot effort and a little luck mixed all together with some secrets I am back on the track and aiming the gold medal .

Taking advices from people younger than me with 2,3,4 & 5 years about success & failure Issues wasn't a good thing to experience, disappointing my parents wasn't my hobby, being "ejected" for being not promising wasn't on my list, but I appreciates that era so much, all these things together gave me the motivation and led me to my U-Turn, makes me happy with what I have done, glad & thankful, and as I used to unfavored things wasn't on my list in the past, Now I trying to get used to unexpected good things being adding on my list, Like when I signed a resignation and gave it to my manager and he offered a promotion to stay, Or when I got the full-mark in an Interview in a place I wouldn't dream to pass its exam, or finding an old friend calls me and asking me to be his mentor - what that means - ? , or the funniest thing ever that one of my cousins asked me to write my biography because its Inspiring ! , my reaction to his statement was a good proof that he was totally wrong.

Recently I found out why I am writing and blogging, I think finally I found that my blog is my online diary, which I can check years later, So I think that the most Important year in my life So far is 2010 and I should mention in my diary .

And now for the Just Born Baby year 2011 ... I am not willing so much, I'll enjoy my life in you and get back to jumps and wide steps in 2012 for sure, So starting with a good trip to homeland after 2 weeks , going to the gym, buying an SLR Camera , this year 2011 is the year for personal goals, health, enjoyment, trips, sports & love . nothing academic , may be some seminars every while , But the slogan of this year will be " Lets Rock n Roll " , A-Wop-bop-a-loo-lop a-lop-bam-boo !!!!!!

What Is My Lucky Number ???

I feel jealous when I see everyone has a lucky Number And I don't have my Own ?? ... Believe Me .. Sometimes it helps .. if you play Estimation or any other game and you have no clew what is the number you should play, You'll find yourself choose the number you love, and prays that he loves you back and don't let you down .. In the past I always go with the even numbers , I love the even number , I hated when I was in school and taking a division lesson and I found a stupid odd number cant be divided on two so I have to add a fraction, or when I grow older and in an algebra class and trying to divide both sides on two to find out what is X or Y is and I found another odd Number, ..... yeah of course its not the end of the world I can try to divide on 3 or 5 or what ever But divide on 2 is much easier and more organized .

Anyway I used to love the even Numbers , but can my lucky number be 2,4,6,8,10 ..... etc. , No I cant make all the even Numbers my lucky numbers , So I have to decide what is my Lucky Number . So here is the paper and the pen . I will write some facts - Right Now- about my self and try to figure out my lucky number .

First of all the day I was Born , unfortunetly the day and the month of my birth day is two digits, I was born in the 14th of December , 14 and 12 ?? I need a standing Number , a one digit number , so lets start from the beginning and write my birthday and try to figure out what is my lucky number , So I was Born in 14 - 12 - 1985 , here are six digits one of them is my luck number .

1,2,4,5,8,9 six numbers , I had seen on TV people adding and divide the numbers of the birthday to find the lucky number, I dont like this idea , I'll find out my own Idea to find out my own lucky number .. So I think that my birth date carried six different digits out of the ten digits, So I think that my lucky Number should complete them, To have all the numbers with me, So the missing Numbers is 0,3,6,7 ... So my Lucky Numbers is one of those . Now I'll try to cut off the extras to find out what's my lucky Number ... but wait a minute ... I can add the Time I was Born to my date of Birth , May be it cut one of those 4 numbers , BINGO ... I just asked my Mom -I swear to god - , I was Born at 06:00 am, 6 o'clock in the morning , Yeah I didn't miss a lot of time in my first day on earth , So After Cutting the 6 I have those three Numbers 0,3,7 .

Okay I'll check my birthday in the Islamic year , Actually I didn't even thought about finding out my Islamic birthday, So I used a website to enter the Georgian date to convert it to Hijri date, So my Hijri Birthday is 2 Raby' Al-Thany 1406 , which is In Numbers 2 - 4 - 1406 , and yeah of course 6 o'clock in the Morning . So the 6 I Cut already from the 4 Numbers (0,3,6,7) by adding the Time I was Born now Its Officially Cut from the list because its in my Islamic birthday , So the three Numbers I Should search in them still 0,3,7 .

Okay I'll Check my phone Number, may be I'll find a sign if I am walking in the right direction of knowing my lucky number or not , and yea I am on the right direction Because I found the sign, the 0,3 and 7 are in my Cell phone Number which is 012-5(307)*** and they are standing together , I feel them like yelling at me " here we are !!" " here we are !! ", Huh this aint gonna help , 2 of you will be Cut at the end of this Post , So the three friends 307 Still together , but I have to find out how can I make one of them special more than the others.

Okay, My Mom n Dad is the reason that I am Here , So lets try to find out what is the meeting points between their Numbers and my three Numbers , My Mom Delivered me to the world when She was (30) .. Thats a good start , my father was Born in July (7) , and he graduated from the Military Academy 37 Years ago in 1973 , and when I was Born he was 33 years old , The Father's Day is the 3rd Sunday in June & The Mother's day is 21st of March(3) , and yes 21/3equals 7, the fathers day in the year I was Born (1985) Was June 13th, My father was Born in30 st. Building Number 77, and He have 7 Brothers and Sisters , My Mom and her Siblings is 7 , she has 3 siblings from her Mother and 3 from her father, Our Old Flat we lived in was at the first floor Flat Number 3 , Now we are Living in the 7th Floor Flat Number 13 , Even My Fucking Mobile Phone is Nokia N73 *, Oh Shit ... I swear to god I am brain storming myself now , Ohh here again !! this is Serious !! I Signed my First Work Contract at 3rd of March(3) , I got a phone call that I am Accepted in my Current work at 27 - 07 and when I went there they gave me a temporary access card for trainees , the card number was 37, Okay I 'll keep Storming My Brain I think I'll Find another 3s and 7s , YES !! I graduated from Faculty of Commerce , It Took me 7 years after I Failed in 3 , Now I Just Checked My ID and Damn the last two Digits is 73, So how Ever I red my 14 digits ID Number to anyone the last word I'll Say is - and seventy three - , 23rd of July (7) The revolution in Egypt, 1973 Egypt Won the War, 1979 Egypt Got all its land back , So me, my Parents & my Country are Drawn in the 7s and 3s With Zero Doubt .

Its One of Those Number 3 0 7 , I decide to But them in this Order 307 because how they are in my phone Number 0125-(307)*** , What the hell ??? Why Do I put those asterisk ?? Here is my Number Ladies 012-5307789 , Dont Forget to add the 3 digits Egypt's Code, Then The 3digits area Code 012, Then The 7 digits Number, Okay Now I am So serious with This Shit , I put this (307) in Google and I found out peugeot 307 , After along time I didn't Find any Sign or Interesting thing with this Number ,So as I took This Numbers Out of the Calender or actually my birth date Now I'll Throw them back To Calender, The First thing I mentioned People Born in 1933 is now 77 years old & people Born in 1977 is Now 33 Years Old,People born in 1937 is Now 73 years, People Born in 1973 is Now 37 years , lets try to separate those numbers lets start with 3-07, which means march 2007 , So I wrote march 07 in Google and I searched on Image , Damn here is a sign from God , A LUNAR ECLIPSE , On march 3rd 07 , So here is the3s and 7s Again , In a ( six digits date with just 3 digits a 0 a 3 and a 7) .. 03-03-07 a total Lunar Eclipse and this Event repeated every 19 years , Yeah Its a Damn Real Sign . So thats What I got from the first separate to the 307 Into 3-07 , So Lets try To separate them to 30-7 , So I put 30 July In Google and Here Is Another Sign, There is a track on the first search page under the title of 30 of July to a Band Called Coffin Break , ..... Coffin Break !?!?!? Is That Means wake up from Death Or What ?? So this a good thing or Not ? Should I be Optimistic ??? May be it Means Wake up from death or a tractor ran over my Coffin and Smashed my Body , I'll Go with the first , I am Not Living in a Cheap Karate Movie To be Smashed Dead By a Tractor in my Coffin , So It's wake Up From Death .. Okay 30 of July is Much easier than March 07 to find a fact Happened , On march 07 in Wikipedia I can Stay for Days to read , but 30 of July Is Much easier to check is there a sign Happened , it's more specific ............................... , So at July 30th The First Disney Cartoon With "Colors On it" in 1932 , The First Lunar Rover on To "Land On Moon" 1971, The 730 (Transport) ... The Last City in Japan to " Back to Basics " Before WWII & Change its Traffic on the Right-hand side of the road to the left-hand Side in 1978 , The last Old Style Volkswagen Beetles -Best Selling car in History- rolls off the assembly line in 2003, In 1930 the final of the first world cup which is by now the most Important event in the world for the most lovable sport on earth, In 2006 Top of the Pops - The Longest Running Music Show - Broadcasting for the last time , In 1751 Motzart were Born - Greatness - , 1947 Arnold schwarzenegger were Born -Strength -, 1970 Chritopher Nolan were Born - Genuis -, & in 1974 Hilary Swank were Born -Talent- , I even searched in my own memories , notes , phone msgs , and everywhere else and I found that at this date a very special events and beautiful memories happened , it was supposed to be a date to celebrate every year , and it was a date from Zeros Threes & Sevens .

So the (3 , 0 , 7) , one of them is my lucky number , and I have no clue how should I choose one of them ! , but wait a minute !! the lucky number should be a one digit not two , In that case I have to kick the Zero out ... It cant be my lucky number !! So it should be (3 or 7) , now I am Thinking ***** , okay I have an Idea ... I wrote the three numbers in Bold font , So now I think I'll go back - Scroll up - and count how many 3 in the post and how many 7 , every single one of them including the last two ones ... the number who was lucky enough to be repeated more than the other will be my lucky number and thats it ... I'll be back in a minute ..

So the Number of 3s = 71 + 7 (march s)= 78
and The Number of 7s = 65 + 8 ( July s)= 73

Okay Congratulations Number 3 , now you are officially my lucky number , that was close , with 78 points the number three won , after that came in the second place number 7 withh 73 points .
OOHH MY GOD 73 Points ??? Its 73 ?? Yeah yeah ? the two lucky numbers standing beside eachother ? the two numbers creating my facts, Id , Phone number , work and memories ! , they are the some of the sevens ? So I was Counting the 3s and 7s in the Post to Find my lucky number and I found the two in One which is SEVEN !!!

"Self-Discovery Channel ... Archive" Inroduction .

"Every one of us has in him a continent of undiscovered character. Blessed is he who acts the Columbus to his own soul. "

The self discovering is not easy thing to do , not hard as well, not fun neither Boring , not quick , not specific & not a must . its an adventure with the full meaning the word adventure carries , easy times don’t make the adventure easy, fun time don’t make the adventure funny, scary times don’t make it scary , fast don’t make it fast , pointless don’t make pointless & so on, its like a painting full of white black orange green red and blue but we call it the Mona Lisa . you don’t have to take the decision of going for the adventure by yourself , you press the start button automatically - and enter the game - when you found out something you didn’t know before about the person who lives inside you from years, and blessed whom starts earlier .

“Caution : this will be a very long introduction”

In the mid 90s I watched an Egyptian series talks about a journey eight guys making to turn down a fire established in an oil well, and they will turn off the fire by making a bigger fire around it to turn off the source , this is a well known method in the huge fire fighting , they will make the fire with a flammable liquid , this liquid can explode and make a huge fire if you just shake a bottle with this liquid inside , the barrels which was designed like a giant bottles will be carried on a big truck and surrounded by a lot of equipments to reduce the shakes whenever the truck shakes or the driver passed on an un-finished road , there is also a cold water dropper drops over every liquid Barrel to keep it under the temperature line which makes it explode, four trucks will be moving to the mission area with carrying two liquid barrels & two drivers in each truck , and they will swap the driving & the sleeping however, wherever & whenever they want as long as the truck is moving all the time with a maximum speed 40 k/h, no problem to stop for safety purposes , after every driver sign on the mission and takes half the reward he should also sign that his life may ends at any moment and he is responsible on his life not the company, and of course if the job is done the second half of the great reward is waiting and this reward can change each driver life , its like giving him the salary of 10 years in 3 days the time of the trip .

So far everything is great and we get to know every driver personal life in the early episodes and how long he took to take the decision , one of the drivers was married to a woman and she refused the offer and she was always telling him that she cannot accept the deal as long as his life is in danger even if this danger was only one percent , and he was telling her that he will come after 3 days with a huge amount of money which will change their life for ever , but the problem wasn’t in the man’s wife , the problem was in his father in law , his wife’s father was a great man he was the leader of the people in this village , he was known with his wisdom, strength, dignity he was like the Don vito corlione to everyone else in the Godfather movie, but this great man has a story , a little small story but this story makes him discover things about himself he shouldn’t discover , the story that he was walking with his daughter and with another man , and as always he was talking with the man and it seems like he just put a punishment on this man for something bad he did and while he was talking as a leader strongly with a sure voice *Clicnk* …… he stepped over something , and its appears on everyone face that they know what he stepped on , at this area of Egypt the series took place was a place the world war II took place as will , and as we know the war has so many ugly faces but the ugliest ever that if two great countries decided that your country will be the round for their fight , like two gangs knock on your door come in and fought with each other , the victorious ones celebrates and leave and the defeated ones carry their buddies and go out , and you look around to find out how your home will look like aftermath , that’s what was happening , and in Egypt wide areas still full of mines and still explode till today from the WWII , one of those mines which was planted by one of the great nations 50 years ago is now under this poor man’s foot , the great leader who was always known with his strength, wisdom & leadership is now standing on a mine , he start to look to the people around him and then he started to peg the man he was putting punishment on him to do something and save his life , but now he is not talking like the leader everyone knows , now he is almost crying , and asking the man not to leave , to save his life , to deactivate the mine , to do something , the man was crying and crying and if there wasn’t a mine under his foot he would kneel & ask for help, after minutes of thinking , the other man decided to help , he took of his head wear , reshape it , take a look at the mine , the man’s foot , the sand , he told him “ let me control your leg” , he start to dig around the mine , he put the scarf under the mine slowly , he took a rock from the sand , he put his finger on the trigger –once that happened the old man ran and sat on the sand and he putted his hands around his head while he watching what the other man doing -, the other man put the rock as a replacement for his finger on the trigger , he rotates the scarf on the mine and the rock , the man's daughter came to help him to tighten the scarf around the mine and he stepped back , AND BANG ….

To be Continued ..

.. Immediatly

(02-Dec-10) “What was that ?? ”they are all on the floor asking, and they figured out that it was a cat stepped on another mine 100 meters away. Actually there is no cat no mine and No Bang!!! , I already make up the last few lines and if I was the writer I would add them to spice up the series and to attract the viewer to watch the next episode, now I discovered a new thing about myself, I can be a script writer , So lets get back to our story which ends that way : the old man was saved and the guy who rescued him now helping him to stand up and go home, but since then the great leader didn’t get out of his house, didn’t shave his beard, rarely speak, don’t eat for days, always thinking, miserable, pathetic, not the same in anyway, but he sometimes speak for a long time, speaks philosophy, speaks with words no body easily understands, he didn’t lose his mind he didn’t went crazy or go insane, but he discovered himself , or actually discovered a flaw in himself, he discovered that he is a coward, a chicken , someone who whenever he is frightened he lose his mind, forgot who he is , his age, his prestige, his history, He was a leader of a group of ppl. Who should sacrifice his soul for their safety , don’t cry when he find his soul in danger !!, and that what he actually did, he was unable to face him self , his people & his daughter again, after he cried in front of her begging for his life after years he was a role model and a figure to be followed in bravery, But what is the problem to be frightened, or frightened to death from death, what else should I be afraid of , its normal to fear death and in case you are a believer and you know that you will be standing infront of your creator, judged for your deeds and you are standing on an active mine and eternity burning in hell might be where you going to step on next , Obviously, 100 % , and with no doubt you have to be afraid, its one of your rights and no one can blame you about this, you wasn’t afraid of a bee, a dog or darkness you was afraid of die in a thousand pieces due to a big explosion which is able to disable a tank, die and they cant find something to bury in your grave, but what makes him embarrassed, hidden in his house and in this miserable status , that he thought himself a brave man, a hero & a patriot , he disappointed himself in front of himself, he embarrassed himself in front of himself, and that what really matters !! .

Lets get out of the series for a moment and try what a man like this thinks when he looks in the mirror , " thought you were a brave man" that what he will told the man in the mirror , he will still feel ashamed and embarrassed alone , not because people find out that he is a coward But because he thought that he is a brave man , convinced that he is a brave, feel proud of himself because he like the way he is, and suddenly he find himself someone else, a coward and he didn’t like the person who he is.

So this man was afraid that his son in law faces the same destiny, discovers in this journey flaws in himself should be still undiscovered, and one of the master scenes in the series was this man talking to his daughter’s husband try to convince him not to go to this trip, try to make sure that the money of the world can not buy himself the person he is going to lose and can not bury the things he discovered about himself deep in the forgotten, finally the man decided to go the old man couldn’t pull him back, the old man even ran after the truck while shouting “ please come back “ “ you cant face this “ & “ keep yourself “ .

Then the story keep going , the adventure keep going for another 30 episode , the series name was " the price of fear " , its was a good one and one of not many that I still remembers , but actually I didnt understand all those emotion inside the man's heart , when I was nine and watching this series I thought that the man was afraid of going out and steps again on a mine, and while I was thinking about the self discovery topic -or any other thing I am going to write about-, I try to attach everything I watch in my daily life with the topic , thinking about the topic , its introduction and what the-photo-above-should-be most of the time, and I was lucky that I randomly remembered that series and while I was thinking about it from the perspective of a "going to write about self discovery " man , I discovered that the series was talking about self discovery while in that age of course I couldn't realize that purpose and meaning .

Magnificent Contrast and Heart Pasteurization

The Contrast in the photo and in painting and using Colors is one of the magic keys to a good photo and a good painting .

I Always believe in Contrast , and in the meeting of the opposites . It Gives a Magnificent unexpected Beautiful results, lets hit the point here and give some examples .

Tomato juice, add to it the Opposites ( Salt + Sugar) and the Opposite ( Cooker + Refrigerator ) led to the great favorite sauce of all time ... Katchub .

Milk, Put it in the Opposites (heating + cooling) led to killing 99.999% of the number of viable micro-organisms in milk.

My own Adventure - hence I love being in Kitchen - The salt-less Omelet in a Plate add to it the Extreme opposite - not only subtract the Object but also add its opposite - , So I added to the salt-less Omelet some honey on the surface , and guess what ?? I believed more in my theory that adding the opposites to the same thing - if possible - led to magnificent unexpected beautiful results, Try this Dish everyone .

Thats what I always looking at and looking for , the opposites in the same thing , the same Object and Sometimes the same person .

Finally I've meet my own - unexpected beautiful results - , Meet the out of range , multinational and So Nubian - were I originally belong - led to magnificent results , So International from Outside and So Nubian from Inside , I fallen in love with that Contrast which led to my heart Pasteurization and Killing of 99.999% of bad things shouldn't be in heart, So here is The short story ........

After being an unemployment for more than 6 months after getting my Bachelor in Business was about to drive me crazy after it already killed my excitement and Activity to Start a new Chapter in my Chapters-full life, But Finally the first place I Knocked it's Door Ringed my bills back, I Found a call from an International Hotels Corporation, after lots of unneeded Details in the story I went there , and once I Entered the place I found it classy, trendy and look like my father's grandfather House in Nuba, Yes its a 5 stars and in Nubian style in the same time, Thats what I mean by Contrast & by the opposites Reunion in a single Object or Person, And what I also mean by magnificent unexpected beautiful results, and that place what I fallen in love with it in the last paragraph .

So I Got a new Job and I am Not Sure when I am gonna add another post or a drop of juice, I am gonna miss my Space , I am gonna miss this place, No Doubt I will .

Wish me Luck Everyone .

ah, I was about to Forgot ... There is a new Header Up there , Did you Like it ? Like The Contrast in it ?
