you know how when girls start living together or spend a lot of time together their "time of the month"s sync up??
well in the working environment i've noticed that it kinda happens to us too.. on random occasions i've found that me and one of my co-workers are wearing the same thing, or matching colours at least..
Today me and my supervisor were wearing the same exact colours.. with the exceptions that he made the fasion faux pas of wearing a black belt with brown shoes.. TOTALLY OMG.. and i was giving a presentation to upper management today so my supervisor and I either looked cute together, or looked like complete idiots..
on another note.. there is this guy in our group who doesn't ever stop talking, or asking questions.. he's the type of guy who is EXTRA friendly to the females in our department, and wants to come off as everyone's friend.. DUDE.. we live in saudi arabia, being extra friendly to the girls could get them in trouble or give them a bad reputation.. and being the "womanizer" at work isn't the most flattering thing either..
anyway.. he comes up to me after the presentation and says "good job, that was the best presentation you have ever given since joining us"...
ITS MY SECOND PRESENTATION HERE YOU A$**&^... IF IT WASN'T BETTER THAN MY FIRST ONE THEN THERE IS A PROBLEM...
GOD.. I HATE HIM...
I hate how he thinks he's so smooth.. and what kills me.. is he is the type who does very little.. but gloats about it forever and taking whatever credit he can get..

It would be very difficult to find someone who doesn't believe that poverty is a real problem we are facing in this day and age. However, with everything else going on in the world (terrorism, global warming, natural disasters) it seems that poverty has taken a back seat to all the attention.
The month of Ramadan has just finished and in the Arab and Muslim world, its a big thing to give during the month. But the sad thing is that some people ONLY give during that month as if the problem doesn't exist after the month is over.
A huge misconception about the poverty issue is that all we need to do is donate money, or clothes, or food. Although a very noble thing to do, to regularly give, it is sadly not enough. What our countries and our entire planet needs is people who are willing to donate their time to look for the worthy and the truly needy. For people to come up with truly selfless initiatives that will have a long term benefit. Our governments need to give leeway to NGO's to take a stronger role in helping the communities.
The solution lies with us, the people. With the support of the powers above, with the determination and by working together we will be able to raise awareness and Inshallah one day find a solution.
And maybe one day, implement it.
