Category Archives: The World According To Baraah
As I am one of these IT people in the world, I’ve been dealing with and watching some actions from people around me regarding to their technologies they use or smart phones they own, and it amazes me how much you can tell about someone just by knowing what he uses or by the way they talk about technologies they believe in.
So I tried to list some and share it here, though it doesn’t have to be always true, this is just the way I see it, and I am going to talk about few ones around me and I see everyday. Let’s check them together:
- iPhone Users:
They are very classy, they only get what they think is best. If they were wrong about anything, their pride can’t let them admit it, yet they know it inside.
They are usually well organized and on time. Male users tend to wear suits.
- Blackberry Users:
99% of them live in the UAE, they live inside the BBM, usually they are shy if you meet them personally and not that social, but they know themselves very well, some of them may amaze you with their big dreams.
The rest (1%) are business men. Easy to talk to.
- Android Users:
Hard to read, a bit complicated, usually don’t get along with general people, they think you have to be an Android user in anyway, and they start convening you to be one before saying hi.
They think they are smart and everybody else isn’t.
Not my fav kind of peeps. (Please don’t take it personally).
They have a very attractive self confidence, they’re so down to earth, they can wait a long time till they get the best service.
They never judge people from the first meeting, and they make you feel you are special in any kind of ways.
Good taste in food, usually get a good respect, they collect things and they tend to travel a lot.
Most of them married and doing good at work.
- Whatsapp Users:
They believe that a picture can tell a thousand words. They’re thankful for their lives and families. They have a 3D imaginations, usually think they live somewhere out of this planet.
They treat themselves well it’s ok for them to spend a lot of money as long as they get a good service.
Female users tend to tell lies through Whatsapp just to make a conversation more fun.
- SharePoint Users:
I have very close friends who know a lot about SharePoint, and I have to admit they are my fav ones.
They are amazing, always optimistic, always smiling, some have awkward habits, they are trustful, they have a weird taste of music and they know it.
It’s almost rare to find female users, and male users are usually good fathers.
To be continued..
So finally, I did it, I got a job in my best city: Dubai. Not only that, I totally moved in, I got my own apartment too!
I gotta admit it’s a bit weird to live alone, but yet it’s excited, and funny in a way, you’ll do things for the first time in your life, like for me, I bought grocery for myself, and I have my own keys now!
Anyway, the point that I wanted to mention in this blog that I’ve been planning for this for a long while, and it feels so good to achieve it, have you ever wanted something so bad and one day you just woke up and find yourself there? in a real dream? If so, please share it with me
No matter how down you feel, and whenever you find nobody who believes in what you can do, when nobody is around to support you, it doesn’t mean that’s it.. you and me know very well that you can reach to whatever dream you have, weather it’s big, small, needs time, needs money, needs help… we know, you know too that it can be done! So get up, go for it, don’t wait that someone to tell you that you can (well, I kinda just did) but you got what I mean.
I do understand how much it helps to find a supporter, I did have that, but it wasn’t the main reason behind what I got, it’s that thing that wakes you in the morning “Passion”!
Go find yours and get it … yes, that simple!
I got really obsessed lately with every move I make or every word I say, I think twice before that, sometimes more. So, I keep my eyes on the person’s actions very well, which is annoying to me, cause I might receive some negative energy while he/she doesn’t mean it, But I’m sure that we all can agree on some common actions people do that show a disrespect.. let me mention some shortly:
- · When they smoke while you’re talking to them, inside a closed room or in the car and the most when they offer you a cigarette.
- · When they interrupt your talk for a stupid question that’s already obvious, like “Are you serious?” or they repeat what you just said but in a question matter.
- · When they show up late on a date, or they don’t show up at all.
- · When they don’t pick up for a formal phone call, though they’re waiting for it.
- · When they talk while eating, and the whole cow inside their mouth says hi to you.
- · When they chew and make balloons!
- · When they act like they know you very well from the very first meeting.
- · When they don’t stand up when you walk into the room toward them.
- · When they talk about you in a way you hate behind your back, and show you a smile in the next day.
- · When they tell your secrets.
- · When they lie to you.
- · When they touch you without permission, and I don’t mean it in any kind of abusing.
- · When you’re in the office with the manager in a middle of a serious talk, and they just come in without knocking and start a new talk.
You might think I’m over reacting, or it’s a bit rare to find such people nowadays, but unfortunately, I’m not, and they don’t even think they did something wrong or disrespectful.
I don’t mean any disrespect to any of you, specially smokers, cause many of my friends are, but I was only sharing my personal thoughts.
Have a blast;
This word is weird, isn’t it?! I believe that too, so many things just don’t make any sense to you, other things are stupid and so hard to explain, Why?! I don’t know!
Have you ever wanted something so bad for a long time, and when you finally got it, it turned to be nothing?! And when you figured that and tried to lose it, it turned again to be even worse?!
Why do we always feel like there is something missing?! Even we know that we don’t know what is it, we just feel it, it’s everywhere, it controls us, when you wake up in the morning, when you’re in the shower, when you go to work and even when you go to bed!
Why do we follow wrong things just because everybody else does?! Or just because we have to go with the flow? Why do we even call the different right person a freak? Is he really? Just because he is doing what he thinks is right? Shouldn’t that make us the freaks?!
How come that you always lie and people seem to buy it, but when you finally tell the truth for one time, nobody believes you?
How silly is it to be effected with some chit chat from someone in the streets who just told you things you’ve always been listening to from people you know very well?!
Something is going on, and I’m sure there is an explanation out there, we just need to put things right, we know it somehow deep inside, we’re just not ready to face it yet.
Don’t you think it’s time for you and I and everybody else to know some facts, some secrets if I may call them, some truth waiting to be told?
I don’t know about you, but I’m so God damn ready this time. I’m officially announcing that I’m going back to school, this is my last chance to show myself how silly it is.
Wish me luck;
