From Saudi With Love! Part 2: Women Behind the Wheels! Activists Behind the Bars!

I used to accompany my grandfather to almost everywhere he went, and one of my favourite places he used to take me to was the rural area of the eastern region, ‘Nariyah’. And whenever we went, I would see women driving their vehicles around alone (emphasis on alone). In rural areas, and small villages, women driving […]

How Politics ACTUALLY Work!

Politics makes up the majority of my daily news read! I wake up with at least two or three notifications on my phone screen, because realistically the political world never sleeps. Although I managed to control the habit of reading news notification first thing in the morning -because, with complete honesty, most of what makes […]

From Saudi With Love! Part 1: Where Shall We Begin?!

I started the blog in the hope I would share some of my thoughts on different issues that are close to my heart! Human rights, global justice, and equality! As well as other aspects that I find interesting, human behaviour, self-motivation (and demotivation), and positivity amongst other things.  Nonetheless, my main aim of starting this […]

Random Thoughts Series: ‘Love is No Fairy-tale! It’s all Wagamama!’

She thought time will be the best healer, and she still in some way do! She also knew that we can’t easily forget what a person made us feel. Do we miss the person that provided us with the feeling or do we miss the feeling? She kept trying to find the answer. Needless to […]

For All The Samas!

Last Saturday, I watched the remarkable documentary ‘For Sama’ on channel 4. The documentary showed the Syrian revolution through the eyes of Waad Al- Kateab as a mother and as a woman.   ‘For Sama’, was Waad’s way of documenting to her daughter, Sama (which means ‘sky’ in Arabic), why Waad and her husband, Hamza, decided to remain […]

The Harsh Reality About Love!

In short terms, love cannot stand on its own defeating the atrocities, the hunger, the suffering of the innocent, or our collapsing eco system.  I have been following, like many people in the UK or elsewhere, the protests against the nearly non-existing environment policies, laws and practice! Two days ago, the Extinction Rebellion protestors in […]

Random Thoughts Series: “It’s October and That’s How I Know”

I don’t know whether it is the dull weather lately but I have been feeling a bit lazy and gloomy. My daily routine does not allow me the luxury to be lazy. With early long morning commute, I leave my house before the sunrise. Some days I love it because of the beauty represented in […]

No One Is Above The Law and Other Lies!

If you have been following up the news lately, then you might have noticed the hypocrisy in the global system we currently live within. And if like me, you might have rolled your eyes over the political series of hypocrisy.  In a not so surprising move, the UK’s Prime Minister Boris Johnson unlawfully suspended the […]

Suicide Prevention Day

Life is hard! It’s that simple! It’s that complicated!  Life is tough and the reality is sometimes it could get unbearable!    Every time I go through life’s tough and testing times, I always go back to the best moments of my life. The times when I was just a little girl, with little care […]

How Dictatorship Begins!

When I think of the atrocities occurring globally on a daily basis, and how horrifying it is to be witnessing these violations with so little to do! I think, how could that have occurred? How is it that people are willing to turn on each other, kill and torture with such inhumanity?    Knowing fully, […]
