Graduation sushi! Congratulations, grads!!!

I graduated college the other day and went to this modest yet authentic looking/feeling Japanese restaurant! (Forgot my camera so it’s phone quality.)

It has got to have some of the best nigiri I’ve had in Charlotte, NC, USA thus far! the Philly roll was delicious and the rainbow roll (front) was marvelous!

I can’t wait to go back there. Wish they were closer to me!

الثالثة بعد الظهر. التاريخ ٧/٧/٢٠٠٨ . جلست منتظرا في السيارة، التي وقفت مطلة على ميدان التحرير على ناصية مطعم هارديز، في الجهة المقابلة لمبنى الجامعة الأميركية. جلست سارحا في منظر الميدان المكتظ بالحياة،…

Something I wrote sometime ago

All the leaves are brown 
All the leaves are brown
And the sky is grey
And the sky is grey
I’ve been for a walk 
I’ve been for a walk
On a winters day
On a winters day
I’d be safe and warm 
I’d be safe and warm
If I was in LA 
If I was in LA
California dreaming
California dreaming
On such a winters day..

All the leaves are brown
All the leaves are brown
And the sky is grey
And the sky is grey
I’ve been for a walk
I’ve been for a walk
On a winters day
On a winters day
I’d be safe and warm
I’d be safe and warm
If I was in LA
If I was in LA
California dreaming
California dreaming
On such a winters day..

I wanna talk

about mind blocks; since I am now in a lecture that I don’t get anything from despite my capability of comprehending up to 80% of what being said. We become anxious of what we don’t know, at the first glance, stuff look complicated, out anxiety of the unknown builds a block, a psychological barrier, hindrance, between your mind and the content. Mind blocks distracts the mind leading to a loss in focus and prevents brain from establishing associations and working with maximum cognitive efficiency. So because of mind blocks, you can feel like an idiot while in fact all you need to do is melt down and break those barriers that resemble a stone blocking a water hose.
I haven’t figured out ways yet to do so, but I guess one of the first steps is to resist the procrastination that follows the anxiety, and being aware of the problem and the content.
Then the second step would be focusing on building associations, seeing the bigger picture, and relating to background knowledge. One big contributor to breaking mind blocks is growing confidence, that counters the effect of anxiety which makes the foundation of mind blocks. Once you destroy the foundation, the block will come down rapidly. Confidence can be grown by understanding, and the sensation of getting back in control. The feeling of regaining control is what boosts confidence and beats anxiety. For me solved examples is the best way to understand what the whole theory was about and quickly builds a sense of confidence inside of me. Once this state is reached, understanding the entire content becomes an easier task, as the mind starts working more efficiently and closer to it’s normal operating performance..
