Standard

Salam dear friends,

The past Sunday was the International Women’s Day, and I thought of sharing with you some of the brilliant women that you need to know about 🙂

One of these women is a young lady who inspires me in every possible way and I just love her.. I’m talking about the talented: Sarah Kay 🙂

It’s been weeks since I last watched her videos.. My friend reminds me of her today, and I thought I need to share with you and you need to watch her and know her 😉

I first found out about her 2 or 3 years ago, and looking into her bio, I have a lot of things in common with her.. I love that 🙂

To give more information about her, I took this from her Facebook page, and it’s lovely:

Sarah Kay is a New Yorker. a poetry writer and reader. a spoken word poetry teacher. the founder and co-director of Project V.O.I.C.E. with Phil Kaye. a witty banter enthusiast. a postcard lover. a documentary filmmaker. a foodie. a playwright. a singer. a songwriter. a photographer. a best-selling author of the book B. an editor for Write Bloody Publishing. a Gemini. a mediocre driver at best. a musical theater geek. a smoothie expert. the daughter of a Taoist mother and a Brooklynese father. a hapa. less cool than her little brother. an alum of the United Nations International School. an alum of Brown University. an alum of Brown University Graduate School’s Masters Program in the Art of Teaching Secondary English. a recipient of an Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters from Grinnell College.

Her talks and spoken words are just mind changing 🙂

I want to share with you some of my favorite videos of her.. Enjoy and share ❤

Be a Better Reader…

Standard

Salam dear friends,

We live in a world where technology takes a huge part of our daily life. We got the habit of checking our emails, spending time on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and looking for news from different websites . Yes, we do live a life that is “controlled”-if I might say- by the net, but the pleasure of reading a book can not be replaced by any other tool.

I’m always saying that life without books is not a life at all. I want to see people read more, which is very much possible 🙂

read more

Anyone can be a better reader. If you want to, you can be so. Being a better reader means not only reading more books, but reading in a slow manner. You have to understand the book, feel something ( anything ), and read it once again. Don’t just hold it, ans say that you have read it: when someone tells me with a proud tone that he has finished Pride and Prejudice in just 5 days ( Like I would really believe you ) I say: But, did you really read it ??.

And I won’t even talk about people who say: I don’t read, because I don’t have time. I don’t read because the movie will come up anyway, right??. Well, for them I say: First, you have a plenty of time, use it in a good way; and second: The book is always better.

keep

So, if you want to be a better reader, these are my 5 tips to be one… Enjoy 🙂

Be patient

Read to know more. Look for details that make you identify with the book.

Use the dictionary 

Yes, you might think you don’t need one. But reading with a book in one hand, and the dictionary in the other is even better. It will make you know more words, idioms and expressions.

Take notes

This will give you the chance to be critic. You will jot down your impressions on the story, the characters, the writer, and this could be your next full review. And because I’m a words lover: I always write down all my favorite quotes, so don’t forget to do that 🙂

Make expectations 

Predicting the coming events is always fun: who’s going to be the bad guy?? Does she really going to find her passion?? What’s going to happen to the missing child??.. That’s will make you want to read more pages of the book, and it”s really useful for you as a writer or a thinker 😉

Compare

Yes, the right way to be a better reader is to think in a global way, I always love to do that. Compare the book with previous books that you’ve read, and find what you like more. Also, it’s helpful to compare the writer’s books. You can look for other similar books and read them; that’s will definitely make you a bookworm, join the club 😉 🙂

Hope the tips were useful… Keep on mind that to be a better reader, you just need some little effort 😀

That’s it… Talk to you soon Insha’ALLAH 🙂

Be happy,and keep on reading 😉

Me, and my blog: Little things about us…

Standard

Salam dear friends,

me bb

Today, I’m writing about me, and my blog… Enjoy 🙂 🙂 🙂

What I think you should know about me ???

That’s a hard-easy question 😉

I’m a simple Moroccan girl who dreams high and want to touch the sky 🙂 I love doing many things and I love being able to do what I can do. I am that kind of person who loves helping others, and I really think that is the reason why we exist: to be there for each other. I love my family, my country, and the world. I’ll stop talking about me, and if you want to know more, just click here.

Why I chose blogging ??

I could have just start writing my diaries, or thoughts and keep them for myself…. But, it will not be fun or new to do so. I chose blogging as a new way to share my thoughts with people from different countries, different cultures, and different backgrounds. It is an experience that makes me better in my daily life, and I’m happy for that 🙂

I love blogging. I love posting new things here, and waiting for you to comment, like, and share… I love being able to share what I love with amazing people like you.

What I write about ??

Everything… The sky is the limit, right ?? I write about life, me, Morocco, the world, Islam, books, health, music, facts, feelings… I share some of my poems, my own quotes, pictures I took, books I’ve read… I’m here to write about what I think you need to know. I want to make a small change in somebody’s life, and I want to see people think in a better way: live in a better way.

ssssss

I hope you’ll keep on reading my blog, loving what I do, and making me feel happy and blessed every single day 🙂

Talk to you soon Insha’ALLAH 🙂
