Pink for October

 

P4O-GPedron1

 

“Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM), also referred to in America as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM), is an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities every October to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure. The campaign also offers information and support to those affected by breast cancer.

The National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) is a collaboration of national public service organizations, professional medical associations, and government agencies working together to promote breast cancer awareness, share information on the disease, and provide greater access to services.

Since its inception more than 25 years ago, NBCAM has been at the forefront of promoting awareness of breast cancer issues and has evolved along with the national dialogue on breast cancer. NBCAM recognizes that, although many great strides have been made in breast cancer awareness and treatment, there remains much to be accomplished. Today, we remain dedicated to educating and empowering women to take charge of their own breast health.

Although October is designated as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, NBCAM is dedicated to raising awareness and educating individuals about breast cancer throughout the year. We encourage you to regularly visit these sites to learn more about breast cancer, breast health, and the latest research developments. Click on any of the websites below for more information.”

 

Many of us may be suffering of things, others may not know about. That is the hardest. That is the toughest fight. We gotta fight ourselves, the feeling of giving up. But we shouldn’t.

I’m thanking God for not giving me this kind of illness and I’m thanking God for not giving this to my close people either.

However, I have friends who have experienced this and I know it’s not a pleasant feeling. Therefore, in order to support this and to raise awareness I’ve decided to add a pink ribbon to my blog.

Whoever wants to do this too, here’s the link: Pink for October.

Women and PMS’ing

I’ve been PMS’ing for the past two, well counting today, three days. The day before yesterday I wasn’t in the mood to study and I was craving something and I didn’t know what. I kept complaining to my boyfriend every time we talked on the phone and believe me that’s a lot, so I think he got tired of it and decided to make my day!

How? He said he’ll bring me whatever I want for dinner. But there was a problem, I didn’t know what. Lovely him, he remembered that I’ve been nagging for shawarma and he said he’d bring me that. Plus because he knows how much I love Pinkberry (this frozen yoghurt thingy which is here in Kuwait), he told me he’d get me that too.

I swear, after that phone call I studied more than I studied the whole day and if I take in consideration the fact that he called and came at 6.30ish, that’s like wow, a lot.

He brought me the biggest basket of chocolate Pinkberry with all the berries and kiwi. Yum yum! And the most delicious two shawarmas ever! Ah. That was amazing. I ate half of the basket that day and I’m sure that today I’ll finish it.

Therefore I would like to thank him for being so understanding and so sweet when it come to me PMS’ing. And I would also like the advice all the guys/men who read this. We, women are not monsters when we PMS. You just need to know how to treat us

One very short sentence: pamper us.

Arguing with your mother

I hate arguing with mum and I think this is normal with everyone because come on, she’s the mother. She’s the one who held you in her womb for 9 months (most of the time). She’s the one who went through all the pain to bring you to life. She’s the one who raised you up to become who you are now. You mustn’t argue with your mother ever in your life. However, it does happen and sometimes although you know you shouldn’t say some stuff, or you know you should apologise, you don’t take the in consideration.

It hurts because the mother is the one who knows you the best. It hurts because the mother is the one, the only one who loves you unconditionally. Without any reason, without any limit. It hurts because she’s your blood. Your mother.

The mother tries to do the best for you and whether she does it or not, that’s not the matter. She tried. She gave her all to do so. Appreciate it. And show it. Because many appreciate it, but their words and actions don’t show it at all.

Love her. Love her always because she’s a fallen angel sent by God to check on you and protect you throughout your whole life. And you never know when she will be gone and you’ll miss her. You never know when she will be gone and you’d give years from your life to spend a minute with her.

I’m not perfect. And as you have surely realised, I just had an argument with mum and I feel rather hurt. Therefore, I’d love to apologise again. I love my mother and she knows this. Despite the fact that I may not show it at times, she’s my world.

Thank you God for Her.

Yes, I wrote her with a capital letter because she’s divine.

Almost the end for my History coursework

 

I’ve been working for my A2 History coursework for about a month and half continuously. Although the normal time is about half a year, I decided to do the course recently, so I had only a little time. I must say that I’m literally crazy. Been researching and reading books this whole time and I think I wrote the two essays over and over again for maybe ten times each.

My coursework is about ‘The change of role and status of women in Britain between 1850-1950’ but I had to concentrate on the ‘Militancy of the Suffragettes’. At the beginning I had no idea what this was. I didn’t even know how to spell ‘Suffragettes’ well and I’d get the letters mixed up, but now? God, now I know everything. Well, not every single thing, but I know many things about this.

I must recommend this course to anyone who likes knowing about Women’s rights, how these developed and Feminism, of course in Britain. And if anyone doesn’t want to do the course (that’s because they’re not in a British system and stuff) but wants to know interesting things about this, they can easily find so much information on Google.

I found it very interesting, especially because I am a feminist to some extent. No, I don’t want all men to die and I don’t go to the extreme, I am a normal feminist, who believes women are equal to men.

Anyway. So this is all I have to say about my coursework, but before ending I have to confess that I’m very relieved for knowing that tomorrow it will be submitted and sent to the UK. I no longer have to worry about it. It’s done. Thank God.
 

I am such a feminist today

 

I know that all my today’s posts were so pro-women and stuff and this is not like an excuse post or something, because all I wrote about is the truth.

I’m going through some moments which guys don’t really understand, or at least not fully. God, if you men would know what we have to always go through you’d shoot yourselves. Really.

 

Women are tougher than men and when I say tougher I mean emotionally tougher but also physically tougher to some extent. OK, we can’t carry very heavy stuff or we can’t do some things, but if only you knew what pains we go through along our lives.

But we don’t complain.. or at least not always, so don’t judge us.

Things about women

 

– We will never be too old for sleepovers.

– Gossip isn’t a sin. It’s an art.

– We have this thing called feelings. don’t hurt them.

– We don’t wake up looking pretty. It takes time and effort.

– Sometimes is just never quite enough.

– We need to spend time with our girls.

– We hold grudges [sometimes] and we never forget the things that hurt.

– Makeup can hide so many things, like puffy eyes from crying of a broken heart.

– Never ever ask a girl how much she weights; or simply anything about her weight being too much or too little. Just don’t do it.

– Never ask a girl if she’s being b*tchy because of PMS.. because she will SHOOT you!

– Girls notice every little thing.

– Our eyes are located in our heads. Not our chest or butt. So when someone is not looking in our eyes, we know it!

– We get a feeling in our gut when things are wrong.

– Sometimes we trust because we want to, even when we know things are just lies.

-We hate liars and hypocrites.

We’re just women.. complicated yet simple.. common yet unique.

 

 

Why women cry; story

 

A little boy asked his mother, “Why are you crying?”

“Because I’m a woman,” she told him.

“I don’t understand,” he said.

His Mom just hugged him and said, “And you never will.” 

Later the little boy asked his father, “Why does mother seem to cry for no reason?” 

“All women cry for no reason,” was all his dad could say. 

The little boy grew up and became a man, still wondering why women cry. Finally he put in a call to God. When God got on the phone, he asked, “God, why do women cry so easily?” 

God said: “When I made the woman she had to be special. 
 I made her shoulders strong enough to carry the weight of the world, yet gentle enough to give comfort. 
 I gave her an inner strength to endure childbirth and the rejection that many times comes from her children. 
 I gave her a hardness that allows her to keep going when everyone else gives up, and take care of her family through sickness and fatigue without complaining. 
 I gave her the sensitivity to love her children under any and all circumstances, even when her child has hurt her very badly. 
 I gave her strength to carry her husband through his faults and fashioned her from his rib to protect his heart. 
 I gave her wisdom to know that a good husband never hurts his wife, but sometimes tests her strengths and her resolve to stand beside him unfalteringly. 
 And finally, I gave her a tear to shed. This is hers exclusively to use whenever it is needed.” 

“You see my son,” said God, “the beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. 
 The beauty of a woman must be seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart – the place where love resides.”

How to treat a woman

 

The following list may be a cliché, but it’s also the truth.

 

1.Whatever you do, don’t just show up at our house, we run around in their underwear just like you do.

2. Don’t cheat on us. It may seem foolproof, but we tell each other everything about everything. Trust me, we will find out.

3. Never miss an opportunity to tell us we’re beautiful.

4. Don’t refuse to kiss in front of your friends. If they laugh at you, it’s because they’re jealous.

5. If we slap you hard, you deserved it.

6. Don’t be afraid to touch us if you want to. If we’re going out with you in the first place, it’s because we like being in your arms.

7. Not all of us eat like birds, a lot of us can eat like whales. (And I’m one of those ones.)

8. Every woman should eventually get three things from her man- a stuffed animal, one of his sweatshirts, and a really pretty ring. Even if it’s not a serious relationship.

9. Make sure we get home safely as often as you can. If you’re dropping us off, walk her to the door. If you aren’t dropping us off, call to be sure we’re home safely.

10. If a guy is bothering her, it is your right to kick the s**t out of him.

11. If you’re talking to a female friend of yours, pull us closer. (I’d kill my boyfriend if he did it, so it doesn’t go to him and I.)

12. Go to a chick flick once in a while. We doesn’t care whether you enjoy it or not, it just matters that you went.

13. You’re dead meat if you can’t get along with our pets, parents and best friends. Be prince charming to their friends, Mr. Polite to their parents and make sure to be nice to their animals.

14. Don’t be freaked out by PMS. It’s not gross, and it really does make us feel like s**t, so be understanding.

15. Don’t stress where you go for every date. We really only want to be with you.

16. If we complain that something hurts, rub it for us without being asked.

17. Girls are fragile. Even if you’re play fighting/wrestling, be very gentle.

18. Memorize our God damned birthdays. You forget our birthday and you’re basically screwed for life. (Totally goes to Mr. Boyfriend -.-)

19. Don’t give us something stupid for our birthday, Christmas or Valentine’s day. It doesn’t have to be expensive, but it has to be meaningful.

20. After you’ve been dating for a while, realize that we really have started to trust you. When you have a girlfriend who truly trusts you, you have a lot more responsibility, privilege and control than you would think. Be careful with it, most guys would kill for that kind of power, and it can be lost in a nanosecond.

This goes from a woman to all the men out there.

 

I must add that I’m almost 100% happy with how I’m being treated by my man. He’s not perfect, but neither am I. 😉
