    Nice post as always Murtadha,
    I always find myself with myself not only in US but every where I go, among others, I would catch my thoughts pondering somewhere else, it seems that I’ve grown so accustomed to my own company that I rarely seek others’ unless they forced themsleves on me, like family and coworkers, it’s just a personal trait…

  2. Hala,
    I notice that people who spend more time with themselves, have a thoughtful insight and wisdom in life.
    since this year is my last year, I tried to limit my social life and focus more on self-development.
    I enjoy it from every aspect.

    I was so proud to be a Saudi girl in syrai,
    but when I came backe to saudi arabia I start feeling different way,
