Chronicles of a 18 years Old Moroccan Girl #10

Chap 11 : إن الفتى من يقول ها أنذا ليس الفتى من يقول كان أبي 

Translation : It's an Arab proverb: The value of the person is defined by who is, not by who was his  who is his father. 

 Based on a True Story :

   Long story short, someone stole my smartphone on the train station. 

Instead of offering any help, the security agents only made me feel confused. They also discouraged me to try to find the thief.

Even though losing my cellphone didn't bother me as much as the fact that nobody helped, yet I tried to report the theft so I went to the police station. 

The following events went like that : 

I met a police officer (I guess he was) really sitting comfortably in his chair : 

Me : Hello, I'm here to report a theft. 
Police officer : ....
Me : .... ?
Police officer *staring really annoyed* : Where and when did it happen ?

Meet Dina aka the Artist Didsy

Welcome back,

I'm a room full of art canvas.  I took a quick glance at them, and immediately picked up the pattern "Deers", but I was more interested in the girl adjusting the paintings to make them look perfect.

She was the artist !

I found her interesting, and tried to start an awkward ( hehehe yeah that's me ) conversation. I learned that she is a self-taught artist, but she also has a bachelor & master degree.

Lately, while reading my Facebook feed I found out that she started her first solo exhibition  "Deer Love" at l'Uzine. What a great opportunity to get to know Didsy!

Who is Didsy ?

My Top 10 Indie/Folk Fall Playlist

Welcome back,

You know how much I love Fall / Autumn ( and I love how I get inspired to write a post when I should study for my midterms )

I mean what's better than drinking your coffee in your comfy onesie while the rain is pouring out.

 AND What's better to set the fall atmosphere than a good playlist. I'm really into indie/folk pop or rock music lately

Take those Feelings Away

Welcome back,

Please, take those feelings away
What started with a leaking tap
ended up with a powerful waterfall
Your sweet voice floats with blood in my veins

Take those feeling and shut them up
Like I want to shut the echoes of your sleepy voice
Still, it's on repeat in my head like a litany
Prayers in club to stop your deafening laughters

Chronicles of a 18 Years Old Moroccan Girl #9

Welcome back,

Chapter 11 : Red Light On Human Behavior !

This summer, I traveled abroad. 
It was interesting. I got to play find the 7 millions differences between my mother country and the hosting one. 

The striking difference was the behavior of the citizens. In europe, my feet were my only carriage and I had to use to road a lot. All those times, the cars would stop whenever I would cross the road on the pedestrian crossing This little detail was almost shocking for me because one day in my home a car almost ran on me while I was crossing the street ... on the PEDESTRIAN CROSSING
