Self Challenge

It is time to Challenge my self .. I used to put my aims in front of me and act patiently till I reach them .. example of achieved aims:

1- losing weight.

2- saving money.

3- pursuing a higher degree.

4- buying a luxury car.

I'd always ask my self since I can plan for my aim very well.. why I am not able to Challenge my self?!! I had a bad habit(don't get me wrong!) that I couldn't get rid of it since long time ago.. the question is why? why I couldn't ? is it hard for me to practise my self not to do it? is it because I used to do it? or maybe It is out of my control?

Today I was thinking seriously, and between me and my self I decided to S T O P !

Hope I mean it this time! and I wish I'll never get back to this bad habit again!

Awful thoughts

Many of us have been experiencing bad moments in their life.. we call it experience as we learn from our experience so we won't fall in the same fault again.. in my life I had a bad experience and fortunately I get rid from all those bad experiences long time ago.. it took a quite long time for the pain to be healed .. but after all you will leave normal life with caution not to fall in the same trap again!
I don't wana be specific in this issue .. I don't even like to think about it! but the thing that I had some bad time last night... I went to bed late at night and suddenly every single bad thoughts came back to me!! it was like a horrible movie rewinding inside my mind.

I was terrible.. amxious and hectic! I was like ohh god not again.. why now!.. I don't wana remember.. I don't wana live that moment.. but couldn't stop thinking! couldn't sleep at all.

I was filled with anger.. I felt my head exploding.. Suddenly my mobile start beeping I had a message! I didn't even want to read the message! it was 1:30 at night.. for a moment I got paused from the bad thoughts "who is messaging me at this time?" I graped my mobile to read the message, hoping that it wasn't something related to what I was thinking about! Thank god it was a forward message from one of my colleague, after reading the message I slept immediately :) The next day I skipped my work and spent the entire time sleeping Z z z z z z z.

Kolon, originally uploaded by MissTechnogal.

A church in Kolon near to the train-station ( Kolon Bahnhof) I was watching all the people standing next to the church and then I notice that there was a prayer inside the church.. I went through and there was a charity event.. There were hundreds of people outside donating their shoes.. you wont imaging the number of shoes surrounding the place.

Roberto Cavalli hysteria at H&M in Amsterdam

OMG.. I can't believe what happened in Amsterdam when H&M opened their store with Roberto Cavalli products , the people were running, jumping and collecting the whole things, the store was nearly embty! they even don't remember what is in their hand.. they drag the things they collect and give it to the cashier.. is this what we call it shopping? or is it a rat race competition to see who collect more Cavalli's!?

My enduring problems with shipment issue!

My problems with shipment issues are continuous! I don't know who should I blame, do I have to blame the shipment service or the clearance department in Kuwait? I have placed my order to be shipped within two days using the DHL delivery service.. My order status was as the following:

Date Time LocationService Area Checkpoint Details

November 19, 2007 14:02 Marseille - France Shipment picked up

Dutch Land

It was a cool vacation.. we spent like 8 days there. Landed at Fra airport and from there we've purchase a twin pass ticket for 5 days and valid for one month. it costs about 280 Euro for two person. From Fra bahnhof we took the train that take us straight to Wie our main destination. The weather was perfect it was not too cold. We spent the first 5 days every morning heading to the bahnhof that takes only 30 minutes walking and from there to other destinations. The first day we went to Kolon (using ICE train 2 hours from Wie). The second day we went to Bonn (Via ICE train 3 hours from Wie). The Third day to Frankfurt main (half hour) and then to Rhein River (30 minutes). We went to mainz and to Dusseldorf ( 4 hours period from Wie via ICE train) it was the best destination as there where many shopping malls since it was the biggest city.

My New Car

Finally I bought my dream car :) after waiting for the right moment to get it.. I wanted to have this car without monthly payment or any interest.. in fact if I am not able to buy this car I won't have it at all!! I don't encourage people to spend like 3 to 5 years paying 300 to 400 KD every month, with 3000 Kd interest or maybe more!
