About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Letting go of the fear and responsibilities in my head that hold me back from just being a carefree backpacker!!~ IT'S AMAZING TO SAY I'M 23 YEARS OLD AND I'M GONNA TAKE A YEAR OFF. THAT'S PRETTY AMAZING!! :))

ABOUT ME

After realizing that my job, my college education, and all my other hobbies and habits have all failed to make me an even slightly happy person, I knew it's time to grab a rucksack and head off to a country that will hopefully force a personality onto me!! Yeaaah, it's time to backpak, and Let go of all my fear and all those responsibilities in my head that hold me back from being the carefree traveler I always wanted to me!!~

Nooow, I am planning for more long journeys..~~ just hope it all goes well !! ~~

Hmmm..how to decribe myself!?
First, I can say that I am an adventurous type of person with a looot of thoughts on breaking down internal barriers! I am ready for everything! Yaaaay Goooo! :D

I describe myself as astrong big girl, though my friends would say quiet and a bit sensitive! But I don't think we would disgree on the fact that I smile a loot! I am a cheerful person who likes to laugh and smile through life's hurdles, and always keep my sense of humor...never afraid to laugh at myself!!!

I believe in happiness, love and tolerance. I believe people make mistakes. I believe people are selfish and generous at the same time. I believe in happy endings.

PHILOSOPHY

- "We are not human beings on a spiritual journey. We are spiritual beings on a human journey"- Pierre Teilhard de Chardin.

- Being stuck is a position few of us like. We want something new but cannot let go of the old - old ideas, beliefs, habits, even thoughts. We are out of contact with our own genius. Sometimes we know we are stuck; sometimes we don't. In both cases we have to DO something.- Rush Limbaugh

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Being lost in a snowy day in Charleroi! :)
Ehh.. the world seemed so big that day.. !! Hahaaaa!

Haha I can't stop laughing now when I remember it...!!!
That experience which I would consider to be the most unforgettable and most scary yaaaay!! It was my first time I rode a crazy Fabbri Boooster --- in Sinksenfoor Antwerp:)
.....
I can't believe I did it!!! Now only the thought of it sends me into a panic attack!!!!!

Teach, Learn, Share

Languages:)) I can teach you Moroccan, Standard Arabic, French, English, and even some German if you are a beginner:)
I'd be also very happy if you could teach me some Duch! It has become very important to me since I've moved to Antwerp.
I can also teach you how to cook on the Moroccan way (Tajine, couscous, Tortilla, Bastila..and all the other stuff:))
I'd also enjoy talking about literature, sociology, food, health and even middle-east politics)
I'd feel glad if you could read or listen to some stories I've written!! :)
