Must-Watch Movies

Before I get started , I need you to trust me when I say that this post is not as lame as it might seem , OK? Good! I've recently turned into a kind of a movies maniac, and not that I'm proud of it , but *Whispers* .... I could watch ten movies in a row O.o Yup! Heheheee. Anyways , I still manage to be very selective to what I watch , and you'll judge my taste once you watch these movies that I highly recommend (Y) 

Dead Poet's society (1989)
The first time I heared the phrase Carpe Diem was from Mr.Keating in this movie. It's what the whole movie is about.
Seizing the day and living an extraordinary life! P.S. Make sure to grab some tissues!

Good Will Hunting (1979)
It's the story of one of those beautiful minds 'Will' who happens to be a janitor at MIT
One of the professors there discovered him when he solved an equation that the MIT students couldn't solve.

Dangerous Minds (1995)
It's very close to Freedom Writers. Ms.J here is kind of cooler though.

Legally Blonde (2001/2003)
Teaching people how to not judge you by the way you look or underestimate you.
It's also about not giving up and challenging the whole World for what you believe in.

Freedom Writers (2007)
This is my best movie ever. It's based on a true story of the English teacher Ms.G who was assigned to teach a troubled class in a school that supports integration system. She was able to make the hugest difference in their lives eventually.
Absolutely stunning!

 Brothers (2009)
This is also an amazing one. It's mainly about the effect of war on family life.

 Waiting for Superman (2010)
A documentary about education in America , shedding more light on the teachers' roles. I really loved it.

 The King's speech (2010)
Stunning doesn't begin to describe this film. It's brilliant! I wish they could do more like it? Funny and sad and inspiring. Colin Firth did a splendid job as usually (Y)

My Name is Khan (2010)
This is the BEST movie you could watch about the effect of 11/9
It's very sad and very very real

Morning Glory (2010)
This one might be more of a chick flick , but I really loved it.
Turning a blind eye to all the scenes that were included , it was rather inspiring for me.

Conviction (2010)
It's an extraordinary movie about not giving up and fighting for the ones you love.
It's a story about Kenny who was falsely accused of a murder and he spends 16 years in prison while his sister Betty studies law so she could be a lawyer and get him out.

.. And voila xD

Alsalam Alikom , every one. So as I've been trying to snap out of the manic phase , I get this really really shocking news that sucked me all back in. The other day , a relative of mine attempted suicide !!!!!!!!! An adult , a Muslim , a wife and a mother of five swallowed some pills 'cause she was sick of life , and she wanted her way out .. Aaah !! However , alhamdu li Allah she survived , but well .. I think that her life will get no better especially now as she's made such a huge mistake !!!

I still can't believe it! As if I'm dreaming!!!!! I thought that stuff like this only happen on TV and acting or at least by people whom life and death make no difference for .. those who don't believe in Allah and the day of judgment .. who couldn't care less if Allah is pleased with them or not .. those who don't know that they'll rot in hell over killing themselves .. And believe me , despite all of this , they would think it through a million times before they do it. We are Muslims , and Muslims do not kill themselves! They're patient and Allah-fearing .. they follow the footsteps of prophet Muhammad , May the blessings and peace of Allah be upon him , we follow Abu Bakr , Aisha , and Khadijah. Not freakin' So3ad 7osni or Marilyn Monroe !!

It broke my heart when her 7 years old son told her (You know that people who do that go to hell , don't you ??) Nothing could be more crushing for him !! What happened to us?! When did every thing get so messed up?? What possibly could've happened that make you throw it all away?? Your family , your children .. and your life in the Hereafter???!! I know that my relative had a lousy husband and a troubled life , but come on .. Who didn't ?? Is it worth it after all ??! Turn to Allah repenting , hon .. seek his forgiveness and ask him for patience and strength ! Focus your attention on your kids and raise them on high values !! They need you more than anything !!!

Alsalam Alikom dear readers. For those of you who haven't learned yet .. Tuesday was my last day at the school =__= This means that I'm no longer a teacher at the 15th secondary school or .. to be more accurate a trainee over there. It should also tell you that on the grounds of this , I'm not quite in the perfect mood whatsoever. So needless to tire you with my burdens this time. I finally uploaded the pictures. Please enjoy them ^.^ Updated

I'm in Love !

Yeah, I  most certainly am :$ Deeply , obviously , and officially in love! And how can't I when I've got the super awesome students?! Those who made sense of my life .. the most amazing thing that happened to me in ages .. I'll be stone cold! Being a teacher was one of the hardest toughest most difficult yet sweetest experience I've gone through .. like EVER. My question is however , what's that about teaching that makes you struggle that much to get the knowledge conveyed , and that pushes you through the nights that you stay up , and that condoles you during the disasters that you come across O.O and that makes you put up with everything else?!

For me , it's only that sparkle that shines in my students' little eyes once they understand something , seeing them raising their hands in excitement , that stupid feeling that I just LOVE when I know that I'm someone's mentor or role model! Al7amdu li Allah , getting these rewards was beyond enough to make my days , and to make me work even harder :) But what I got from my students recently is something different , something sweet and touching and special and awesome *tearing* .. Let me fill you in with it , Some of my students have started away their OWN blogs .. I know , right? Others have made me the most amazing glossaries ever. My students know idioms and some of the most important words in English. When I saw thier comments on some of my posts , I was literally wordless !

Lemme start with my lovelies , Fatima took the lead and started her blog .. Fatty is all the sweetness in the world gathered ;) Sawsan , a very smart and funny yet so fragile gal did so as well. R3'dosh is a cool kid who doesn't give up and who thinks she deserves nothing less than the best .. she needs a little push to be something very HUGE. Omaima is very naughty talkative yet keen .. her website is also out.(Please support my students) Maisan is someone I'm so grateful for having in my class. She kept reading and commenting on some of my posts with astonishing English ;) Iman is a thinker and a very wise little woman .. It would be amazing if she has a blog of her own , wouldn't it? Ala'a or Lolo ;) is someone with a great deal of passion. There are MANY MANY great students in my classes whom I really really hope that they take such brave steps .. for those who started , keep it going , sweethearts ;) For those who want so , it's not gonna take more than three minutes .. and you'll have your own page xD

P.S. Please support my students , please please please ?! 
P.P.S. I'll upload a few pictures of their glossaries and presents. Will sure provide you with some. Vaya con dios ;)

Yes , We Can Make It !

Can't we? no no wait? I don't really know for sure .. Maybe the title needs a little modification?! It's a bit of wired , don't you think? .... neh , it's Abrar who is talking again , so the thing is pretty much normal , huh? Good morning/evening everyone , hope all is well at your ends?! It's so depressing how the whole process of writing is taking an outrageous sort of way for me. I don't write till I have enough of the life out there. I can't take it anymore , and I desperately need to vent it all out , so I'll just cut to the chase ..

Today , at school , something happened , and it didn't only move me , but wallahi it brought me to loads of tears. The special education girls at the school ( Our school is one of those who have integration systems ) held a little celebration on the occasion of the success of King Abdu Allah's surgery and his wellbeing. The celebration they organized was very nice and touching. It was amazing how passionate and outgoing and eager learners these kids are with all the things which they lack and so desperately in need for! I felt so ashamed .. we've got it all , and yet we rarely thought of doing such things .. and do you think we were listening to them? No , we freakin' were not! Every one was busy with his own self !! It's very painful ....

It got on all of the nerves and provoked the hell out of me! I mean , on top of the whole stupidity that I put up with every single day , despite all the attempts that I and a lot of people make to fix the world .. nothing is working. Good are good and bad are bad .. there is rarely bad going good ! It's like this ..

And I went nutsooo

Our problem is that we are taking everything FOR GRANTED. We are thankless enough to think that we own every thing as if it could never be taken away in a snap. We are cocky enough to think that we are the smartest , the funniest and the most modern of all. O.k. folks .. you need to realize something YOU ARE NOT so !

For me , my problem is that I suffer from a severe clear concience that I need to be urgently cured from. I wish I was this person who doesn't care about a thing. I wish I could live my life so quietly and peacefully! I really really wish I can stand the feeling that I could come and go without people noticing me .. keep to myself , do my own things and leave. No troubles , no 7argat A39ab and nothing , but I CAN'T. I can't see something wrong happening in front of me and keep quiet , I can't remain silent when stupid things are around .. and to be honest with you , I'm horribly afraid that I might lose my life or be thrown in a mental institution one day over this!

Wallahi I just need to rest and give my poor brain a break. I swear to God it hurts .. ouuuuwwwwuch ! I just wanna relax , lay down , have a massage , a hot bath , a cup of coffee or God have some sleep ..
