[This is me, Mona, with a frustrated facial reaction every time I read ridiculous emails and comments.]
My normal day:
1. I wake up, do my morning duties, eat breakfast, drink coffee, and check my emails.
2. As I am reading emails, I laugh, cry, cringe from disgust, and answer people’s questions.
3. I ignore half the emails I get because people are so persistent to piss me off.
4. I read every single email, unless the person keeps emailing me because I ignore them 10 times, and they still will never understand. You are spam to me now!
5. People read my old posts and wonder, what? And email me or message me with utter confusion and hatred.
6. People judge me because of the title of the site, and think the only way to comment or email me is by being disrespectful, negative and ridiculing.
7. I get really peculiar emails from Arab girls with their problems, and expect me to give them the advice they want to hear. Yet, I am a very conservative person when it comes to many Arab life issues.
8. I watch TV, read news, and check out latest blog technologies and cool new web applications.
9. I drop 300 Entrecard cards on 300 websites a day. I read some of those blogs, and I am frustrated by the same design that people use. STOP USING BLOGGER.com!
10. If I answered any emails, I get replies back with the following tone: angry, thankful, pissed off, or happy.
11. If I ignored someone’s email or deleted their comments, I get 4 or 5 pissed off emails that I skim through or completely ignore.
12. I have a web server running on my machine, and I test new things throughout the day, and see what is appropriate.
13. I am currently planning a couple of new ideas, and I haven’t been sitting on the computer for more than an hour so I can actually work on them.
14. I end up drinking 3 or 4 cups of coffee, and become too jittery to think anymore.
15. I spend an hour reading and watching girlie videos about makeup, hair, etc.
16. I count the minutes, hours, and days till my wish of getting a real nice and good job where I can meet new people and share my skills and persona.
17. I go to bed, and sleep by 11:30 pm and repeat it all again the next day.
That’s my day.
Now a few RANTS.
I am sick and tired of people judging me by my site’s title. I am sick and tired of people giving me religious advice thinking they can cure me from my rebellious ways. I am sick and tired of people trying to analyze me by focusing on the word rebellious and not anything else that I write. I am sick and tired of people thinking that if I don’t listen to them or agree with them, that I am a very horrible person and should be ridiculed some more.
Honestly, I did everything I could. I automatically got the comments on each post to close after 7 days. I tried to give people some freedom in writing comments without me moderating. I tried to be as democratic as possible when dealing with people’s comments and emails. I feel like I am a president of a country and I am trying to please everyone. However, I am not ANYONE and I am a very stubborn opinionated person. When I say something, I will not go back and change it or change my opinion to match yours. If you don’t like it, then find someone else that will worship your worthless advice. That’s my rebellious thinking! I will not agree that easily, and God gave me the will power and brain power to make my own decisions and formulate my own opinions.
What puzzles me is people’s persistence in me agreeing with them, or forcing me to read their opinion. I am not interested in anything that is forced to my face. I am a human being. I decided to have a blog to share my life, my thoughts on certain cultural and worldly issues, to have some fun writing and enhancing the skill of writing, to be creative in web design, and try to formulate a community of readers that I enjoy reading their opinions of what I say. I love people! However, I dislike morons and closed minded individuals.
Another thing, I am sick and tired of people giving me religious advice. It’s only Arabs I swear to God. And 90% of those Arabs are male. First off, how can you be 100% sure I am a Muslim? 20% of Arabs are Christians. I am not saying I am denying my Islamic faith, but don’t give advice to a person that you know nothing about or bothered to research. My faith is for me to live by, for me to follow, and for me only as a human being. I cannot spread religion, and I don’t want people to force it on me. I know how to read Arabic. I know the Islamic laws and rules. I follow my faith 100%, and I never sway from it. I am more Arabic and more religious and conservative than half the Muslims that I ever met in my life. Yet, I never judge anyone. I don’t care. It’s not my problem. It’s between that person and God.
Lastly, I am very Arabic. My way of life is very conservative. I don’t go out much. I never been to clubs, bars, dancing, etc. I don’t do anything. I am more quiet and more to my self than anyone you met. I continue writing on this blog and I am proud of it because I can write rebellious thoughts of the ridiculous new Arabic traditions or messed up traditions that have no bases, and I question them. I talk about life of an normal Arabic girl. In the end of the day, I view my self as a really good person, and I never in a million years thought of doing anything that opposes my religion or culture as a whole. I am just another girl, who has rebellious thoughts against certain issues. THAT’S ALL!
I am going to make this post as a warning post from now on before another idiot emails me. Ay.. what a day.
