About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Liberal-Humanitarian Transcendentalist

ABOUT ME

My name is Ma'en, I am originally from Jordan, an AIESEC alumni, studied Computer Information Systems in Jordan and MBA-MIS at GAU Cyprus.

Right now I am 26 years of age although I'd rather think of my life in count-down terms, not in a morbid way! but in a way that life is precious, limited in time and space and we only get to live once, so seize the moment, the chance and live up before life is no more...

PS: so far and through my CS experience and the reviews I got, I just realized that I (humbly) am a great host :D don't take that as an egomaniac over-inflated statement, I just wanted to say that:

I believe that I am a good host, and all I want in return is simple; I want you (future guest) to carry on your way with a smile on your face, nice memories and experience and then when asked to host someone to treat and host them the same way I did (or even better) and in return ask them do keep pushing it forward. Simple and Fair Enough! :)

PHILOSOPHY

At times I can be so overwhelmed by the sensation of being alive, that I cry or I laugh, that I scream or just breath deeply, and NO, I never once imagined that to be supernatural, I understand that the thing that is much greater than me to have caused lightening has a name, and its called atmospheric electrical discharge, the being humble is simply the feeling of recognizing the reality of one's small significance to a universe so massive, and being grateful to be alive doesn't require a "person" to be grateful toward!

I recognize that being happy in a comfortable social setting is an evolutionary trait of my species, that my body naturally craves specific food for nutritional and psychological reasons, and that the intoxication of romance is most likely driven by the need to procreate, but I am ONE with the universe, not metaphysically but physically, I am as much as the universe as a supernova, made of the same particles, governed by the same forces, I am genes that mutates randomly, then are selected naturally based on their success at survival, and I love my extra strong French Roasted Arabica coffee with a slice of new york cheesecake.
