Things they don’t teach you in high school

They teach us a lot of things in high school but we end up using nothing of what we learned in real life. I never find my self using any of the information i learned from school. And there’s a lot of things i wish i learned school like HOW TO HANDLE A PROBLEM or HOW TO COOK or HOW TO ORGANIZE THINGS but don’t worry today i am gonna teach you things they don’t teach you in high school

1.How to go through a bad breakup:                                                                                                                                           I Can’t say i am the best to give advice for this matter  but my friends has been to a few bad breakups so, i understand. first thing realize that it’s his lost. You are amazing anyone would be lucky to be with you and if he can’t notice that then, he is really not worth your time, your tears or your mascara. Cause come on if you put makeup on you know a good mascara can get a little pricy and we both know no one is worth finishing your mascara on. secondly try to FORGET HIM and i know this may be a little hard but train yourself to do it cause practice makes perfect and you can’t forget about him if the background of your computer you and him holding hands or you showed up to work late because you spent the last night going through not only his instagram but his friends and family. I am not gonna lie to you but it’s not gonna work that way. You need to erase every picture, throw any gifts and delete his number. That’s the only way you will forget about it. Last but definitely not least watch a lot of movies with a lot of hot guys in it so you realize how bad he look even if he is not compared to them and now all you will be able to think about is how hot zac efron looks in Bad Neighbors, you will not even be able to think about him because zac efron had took over your mind, God now i have problems getting zac efron out of my mind. And remember i told you i am not the best in this matter i am making an effort here okay

2. How to save money                                                                                                                                                                 My name is salwa and i am a shopaholic, My 2 favorite places are zara and h.m. They are like a second home for me. The smallest amount of time i spent there was 30 min and i can’t tell you how bad i felt about it, it broke my heart. I normally spend from 1 to 2 hours and if i am lucky 3. Now no one wants to go out with me, they claim i am insane, i love clothes more than i love them and they can’t handle walking for 5 hours without food. well, clearly they are they are the insane one’s who needs food when he can have clothes. Well actually i am insane and that’ why i decided to recover and today i am gonna tell you my secrets. I try my own clothes at least once a week, that way i satisfy my need to go to fitting rooms and try clothes on. Another thing that really helps is i try to create new outfits from my own clothes that way i feel like i already bought new clothes. Another tip on how to save more money is i like to hid my money in books, yass you read right. I like to hide some cash in my old books and later on i forget about them and when i find them it’s such a great feeling and i am thinking about doing it in cds too because that book thing is getting obvious for me.

3.How to solve a problem                                                                                                                                                                I will tell you what works for me. when i have a problem i like to sit alone and think about it. I think about what happened and i ask myself  was it my fault or their fault and don’t act like you don’t talk to yourself cause at some point we really need some expert advice. The next step is asking for other’s advice and opinions. At last i like to think more with my friends opinion’s in mind until i come up with my solution.Then i study my solution and try to visualize what will happen in case i tried it and at the end i find the answer for my problem.And always just like in math every problem must have a solution.

Taking things for granted

We are always taking things for granted like we own it. We act like it’s our property and don’t appreciate it but, what we don’t know is that it can easily be taken away from  us. And when that happens we will be left alone with nothing and we will feel great regret for not appreciating what we had and not trying to make the most of it.

we take a lot of things for granted but the top 3 things we take for granted are Money, family and health and for each one of these things i have a story that taught me not to take any of these things for granted.

1-Money

A year ago my best friend and her family lost most of their money and her home. Just like that after having a beautiful home and a big factory. They were left with no home, no money and a non-working factory. You can imagine how difficult it was for them and having to live in friends home. This teached me how to never take my family’s money and my home for granted and to appreciate that money and know a lot of people are not lucky enough to have it. The money i spend in a month can be pretty enough to solve some of people problems. I am not a spoiled brat i swear but a little amount for me or for you can be huge for someone else. It teached me to stop spending my money on unimportant things and to appreciate how hard my dad works to bring us this money, I haven’t actually went real shopping in 3 month and anyone who know’s me know’s i am a shopaholic. So, appreciate the money you have and spend it wisely in order not to wish one day you did.

2-Family

Recently my other best friend parents are filing for a divorce. I can never imagine what she is going there. Having been in that situation but thank god my parents backed down and made up truley opened my eye’s about that issue and how badly it can affect you. I never ever thought aboout my parents getting a divorce or splitting up. It never crossed my mind so, i never really understood how horrible it is and how again not to take a happy family for granted. If you’re parents love and understand each other be grateful for that and appreciate it because some people wish for it, They pray all the time for it. So, dont take your family for granted and wish they always stay together and happy.

3-Health

Don’t worry this will not be another best friend story. This is my brother’s story. So, ever since my brother was a kid he suffered from a big health problem and for a while the medicine wasn’t even available but, thank god it is now. So, as long as he takes his medicine hopefully everything so going to be fine but sometimes it doesn’t. So, appreciate it your body and how great it works, appreciate it your beating heart and appreciate your life.

So, moral of all these stories is to not take anything for granted and to appreciate what you have. And if you’ve been through any similar situation i wish you the best and i hope you learned for it. Understand that i am not telling you this to gain your compassion or sympathy. I just want you to learn and be grateful. I will see you all next time, Byeeeeee 🙂

Dear, young me

Hi, young salwa. I am you and i won’t ask you ”How you are doing?” because i know. I know everything. I Know you are struggling right now but don’t be too upset because, everything that is happening now to you all this sadness, all these tears and all this pain is what made you who you are today. It surprisingly made you stronger. I remember how you used to think what a stupid phrase ” what doesn’t kill you makes you  stronger ” was  but, it turned out to be so true salwa. And another thing that is so true is that life comes in seasons and that you will never be sad for too long. You are actually happy now. I mean you still have bad days a lot but overall you’re happy and life is great. I know it’s a shock for you. You never thought you would be happy again but life surprised you. And i am really glad you didn’t give and i know how bad you wanted to sometimes.But thank you for not giving up because, life is beautiful and there’s tons in it you haven’t found out yet and you will keep discovering how beautiful it is until the day you die. Did you know that you became a writer? Who would have thought you salwa adly could write. I mean i had no idea. And you made a blog too. See things are working out  pretty good. well, the blog isn’t that big at all and i barely have likes or followers but i promise you i won’t give up just like i did before because i am sure things will work out at the end. You finally  know now what you wanna do and major in college. I Know you had such a hard time deciding and looking at different majors but i think you picked the right choice.your friend Dana left school. I Knew you were so upset about it but things are fine now and actually you friendship became better and you became closer. Also your childhood best friend lara returned to your school and you guys became closer than ever. You went to the philippines and you had so much fun there. Gossip girl is still one of your favorite shows, friends as well but sadly glee isn’t anymore. I Know you are so surprised right now because how much i used to love it but trust me it isn’t the same anymore and ever since cory monteith died i stopped watching it. Omg i forgot you don’t know he died but sadly he did. you will cry a lot but you will forget about it a little later. You know what is one of your favorite shows now. You will never guess it. The vampire Diares. I Know I Know you never liked it or even understood it but trust me it’s such an amazing show. You will fall in love with it. I think that’s pretty much all what changed. I have to go now but i hope to see you again. Bye salwa and i wish you the best. May the odds be forever in your favor 🙂

I Would also really love to hear what you guy’s would say to your younger self’s or any advice you have for them because it’s really interesting to know and it may help someone out there who is struggling with a problem you once had. So, feel free to write anything or any advice you have in the comments below. Thank you and i love you so much 🙂

My february

Hi,guys and welcome back to my blog . Today i am gonna tell you guys all about my month. I really love posting this kind of posts and i hope you guys do as well and lets get right into it .

What i’ve been doing ;

  • Back to school : This month i returned back to school after my mid year vacation which only lasted for 2 months .But its okay as it was really needed. School now isn’t that bad and i am really enjoying spending time there with my friends as school is almost over for me.So, I am trying to make the most of my school days and that’s what i recommend everyone to do.
  • Went to cairo book fair : This month was really exciting for me as i got to go to cairo international book fair which is only held once a year. It was my first time going and it was so much fun . I got 7 books for such a cheaper price which again is just perfect as i really enjoy reading and sometimes books can get a little pricey.                                                                                   I got 5 english books which are : Eleanor and park, the book thief,looking for alaska, the book of life, adultery .if you guys read any of these books i would love to hear you guy’s opinion on them.

My favourites:

  • Friends tv show
  • Note books
  • Earing

My happy moments:

  • Art’s arts reply: one day, i was feeling really down and i was crying in my bed . I didn’t feel like doing anything that day until while i was crying i checked my blog where i found a reply on community pool for my feedback on Art’s arts blog ( Which is a wonderful blog btw) . In that comment she thanked me for my feedback and told me how she also really enjoyed reading my blog ” your blog is great, inspirational and well written” she wrote and she quoted one of my phrases in one of posts. It was ” MAKE THE REST OF YOUR LIFE THE BEST OF YOUR LIFE ”. Her comment really made my day and reminded me of who i am and my words. And how i aim to help others so i should stop weeping and start helping myself. so, i can really help others. After reading that comment i stopped crying, opened my laptop and started writing . So, a huge thank you to Art’s arts. I love you.
  • Secret valentine: this year me and my friends decided to do a SECRET VALENTINE. we took the idea from secret santa and added our touch on it. It was perfect as we are all single. It was so much fun and i will definitely will be doing it next year because who am i kidding i will still be single. But it doesn’t matter because i am happy and i have amazing friends.

So, guys this was my month. Hope you guys enjoyed and i would love to hear all about your month. If you wrote a similar post i would love to check it out just leave me a link in the comments with your thoughts on my post. I love you all and thanks so much for reading. Have a great day , Byeeee 🙂

DON’t CARE ( How to not give a fudge? )

The art of expressing yourself without taking in account what others may think of you . Well, the word art maybe a little too much. It’s really simple to not care .If you want something then that’s an enough reason to do it and no one have the right to even discuss it with you. But now days people seem to put much thought in what others may think or do and there are far many reasons for that. but, today we are here to solve this problem . We will try to be a part of the solution not the problem . So, I am going to give you the tools you need to master this art .
1. Cut off the excess weight
Cut the negative people out of your life , or what I like to call the excess weight .Those people can be represented as heavy weights that you keep carrying with you everywhere all day and they just make it harder, they make your life harder. So, just drop them off , drop that excess weight and live freely and happily. you are not in need there silly comments on every detail in your life. you don’t need their negative energy. you don’t need them to drag you down with them . so, just get rid of them . I have a great analogy that will help you to understand the effect of these people and the hold they have on your life . Picture in your mind a chair and now picture yourself standing on that chair. Now picture one of your negative friends standing next to you but on the ground and now picture your friend trying to drag you, to bring you down with him , to bring you back to the ground where you started. it takes one second for that person to bring you crashing down on the ground . Its hard, isn’t it ? only a single second to destroy everything you worked for . so, if these people don’t respect you and respect the descions  you make in life than they definitely don’t get to earn a place in it .This is your life and you get to choose who stays in and who gets out and there is nothing they can do about it . will they arrest you for cutting them off of your life ??, you read it right YOUR LIFE . I need you to emphasize on that word ”your” because as how simple it may seem as how meaningful it actually is, it’s used to show that this life belongs to you, and no one has the right to interfere. This is your life . you’re the king, and your life is your kingdom and you get to rule it. But why allow others to invade your kingdom, when it was meant for you. So, think well when choosing who to spend time with because as much as it seems so simple as much complications it will bring to your kingdom.
2. Haters gonna hateee & people gonna judgeeee
It’s a very well known fact that we people tend to criticize a lot . we criticize life , food , school and finally fellow human beings. But you need to understand that criticism is just a natural behavior and it doesn’t mean surely that there is something wrong with you . People criticizing life doesn’t mean that life isn’t beautiful this is just how they see it. So, people criticizing you doesn’t also mean that you aren’t wonderful . You need to realize that people will judge you no matter what , no matter how good or sweet you are they are going to judge . There not a single person in this planet who hasn’t been judged , beyonce was judged , ghandi was judged , prophet Mohamed was judged , but you know what its okay. Because you weren’t born in this life to please any one , this isn’t the reason behind your existence. This isn’t why you were born , you were born for far more important reasons than that ,.you were born to aspire and inspire you were born to create, to love, to live , and trust me you’re not doing so . its time you start questioning your actions towards these people , I once heard a great analogy about this topic .. Picture in your mind a tree and on that tree a bird singing (that bird represents you) so you’re a bird… you are doing your thing your singing and your happy and while your singing a guy comes to you and started to thank you for making this morning more beautiful by your voice , what will the bird do (you), he will just keep singing and then other guy comes around and start shouting to you for waking him up by your annoying voice , what will the bird do (you)he will also just keep singing … so keep doing your thing no matter what .. Keep living. Also understand that there’s people who won’t like you sometimes for no apparent reasons… this is just how it works… its like science some people just don’t react well with each other. Moreover, remember that you can be the sweetest piece of peach ever and there still will be that one person who doesn’t like peaches. Just don’t care if they like you , hate you or judge you . you don’t need them in order to be successful , so keep being yourself , keep doing what you love and keep going .
3. We are who we are
Learn to accept yourself , accept your flaws , accept your failures and overall accept everything that makes you you, and understand again that there is not a single person on this planet that hadn’t fail. Einstein failed school and got kicked out , Mendeleyev who invented the periodic table failed to enter the university of Moscow , but the point is that failures don’t define you and that every time you fail your one step closer to success. So, just don’t give up so easily and understand that this doesn’t mean that you are going to fail no matter what , this means that failure is just a stage in life which you’re going to go through and benefit from .so, don’t rely on the fact that failure is necessary and just keep failing , no keep going and when failure comes your way don’t give up and accept your flaws . Understand that you’re not perfect and you will never be perfect , because that’s what humanity is about . In my own dictionary humanity means imperfection. It means striving to be the best un perfect person . So, don’t stress about your flaws and just accept them and that’s the key for not giving a fudge, So, accept YOU.
4. Tick tock don’t stop
Live your life. Most of us just exist. I myself used to just exist. But more people need to start living. Because if you don’t live your life now when will you live it , live your life , enjoy it , go out , make friends , laugh a ton , work hard , succeed , fail , dream , dream until the dream come true , start NOW , right now. I want you from this moment on to start living and don’t care for what anyone have to say about your choices , about your decisions , about YOUR life . Honestly none of this will matter 20 years from now ,Will you even remember these people name ??. All you will remember is the life you wished you have lived and all you will feel is regret for letting those people affect you and affect your life. And it’s never too late to change and remember that everything and everyone deserves a chance . So, give your life a chance, give yourself a chance to be. MAKE THE REST OF YOUR LIFE THE BEST OF YOUR LIFE.
