About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I aint gonna stop untill I'm done, I aint gonna quit untill I've won --- Black Eyed Peas ---

ABOUT ME

Let's start with bad news first, I'm unpredictable but not to the level demonstrated by females ( Sexist? Get over yourself! ) You should expect a bumpy ride with me that is full of surprises, pleasant and not so pleasant. Second, I am not your hypersocial Tom or Samantha, the social butterfly. I usually take time to open up esp. with people that I meet them for the first time ( You see it as arrogance, fine. this tells a lot about how secure you feel ). However, I am usually your average laidback & hilarious Jerry with my friends & cool people. This is IMPORTANT, I am a stubborn guy, there's no way around it. I like to do my stuff my way and I don't like people telling me what to do about it. So, if you think you can shove it down my throat, think again buddy and watch it because it may back fire . I know that this can be annoying for some people but I'm OK with it because on the flip side, you got determination, willpower and courage, and I'm happy with this deal. Assuming that you're still interested to know more about me and you haven't walked away already, let's conclude with the good news. I am funny ( Don't make the temporary frowned/serious look on my face fool you ), passionate, cool, open-minded, intellectual, ...etc. Definitely, I am not the type of guy who writes an essay describing how cool or funny he thinks himself.

PHILOSOPHY

My favorite phrase still holds true and successfully stood the test of time and even will have a greater influence in my next phase of life.

'Live Today Like There's no Tomorrow'

Don't be held hostage to your past, unchain yourself and live the moment. Don't be so preoccupied about your future to the point that you can't enjoy the present moment & let it pass by.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I was introduced to CS by a member in a Lonely Planet forum. That's the beginning of my story with CS.

I participated in many events in my hometown, and I was the guide for many friends to tour the city.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

As of date, I haven't surfed yet any member's couch ( No pun intended ) but I guess this is bound to change in the future. On the other hand, I hosted few of my close friends prior to joining this community. To be honest, I still have doubts & fears of letting a stranger into my house but I think those feelings will dissipate once I accumulate good experiences.

Interests

My dream is to tour the world and explore all the continents. I hope that my dream comes true someday.

My goal is to live rich & beautiful experiences & collect as many unforgettable moments as possible from around the globe.

Music, Movies & Books

Movies ( Those the titles that I enjoyed watching but not my favorites as I don't have any that I watch frequently ) : 1- Pirates of the Carribean2- The Godfather, Goodfellas, Scarface ( Men's thing, it's in our DNA ) 3- The Mask4- Ocean's 115- The Matrix6- Religulous ( Eye-opener, thanks Bill Maher ) TV Shows ( those are my favorites & really dope ):1- The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.2- The Colbert Report.3- Real Time with Bill Maher.4- Seinfeld.5- Prison Break.6- Curb your Enthusiasm. 7- Desperate Housewives.8- LOST.9- CSI.10- Mitchell and Webb.Music : I have a very versatile taste when it comes to music. I usually don't follow a certain artist's works ( except for BEP at the moment ) and I have fresh new playlists every now and then on my iPod. Here's a snapshot of the most current one: 1- Californication - RHCP2- Daddy Cool - Boney M3- Let's Get it Started - BEP4- Fare l'amore - Bob Sinclar5- I Like to move it - Reel 2 Real6- Around the World - Daft Punk7- Beautiful People - Chris Brown8- The Chase - Giorgio Moroder 9- Bonnie & Clyde - Jay-Z ft. Beyonce10- Party Rock Anthem - LMFAO Books: I am not a big fan of books as they demand commitment to finish reading them & I usually have a busy schedule ( Yeah, you guessed it. I have some commitment issues ).However, my favorite genre is Self-Help & How-to guides as I'm a down to earth & practical guy myself. Recently, I became interested in evolution, cosmos, ancient Egyptian history ( Pharaohs and Greek ) and of course atheistic ( criticism of religions and dogmas ) themes. Â I valiantly and miraculously managed to finish reading these best sellers:a. The 7 Habits for Highly Effective People - Stephen Covey b. Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus - John GrayOn my list to read next are the following: 1- Brain Rules - John Medina2- Emotional Intelligence 2.0 - Travis Bradberry

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Create your own visitor map!

Teach, Learn, Share

I am generally good at visual arts. I can teach you few tricks with photography esp. in post-production.

I can also give few tips about drawing like how to make portraits even if I am not the best authority available on the subject as I am more comfortable with the digital toolbox.

I am also very good with languages such as Spanish , Italian & of course Arabic. I can cook too and I can teach you few recipes for quick, delicious & nutritious meals targeted usually at university students and busy guys.

For now, what I'd like to learn is how to tag & create a stunning Graffiti work & few advanced photography techniques won't hurt.
