In this month’s edition of the Atlantic they present the 100 most influential Americans of all times. The ‘holy trinity’ -  Abraham Lincoln, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson – naturally occupies the first three positions. Elizabeth Cady Stanton, the first woman that turns up, comes in thirtieth. Thirtieth!!!! Which is fine, except that for instance [...]

I think it’s about time I mention the weather. Not because it’s supposed to be the favourite topic among the older Brits (and who could blame them – I mean, wouldn’t you want to discuss the weather if you have rain, cloudless sky with amazing sun, snow, rain again, maybe even hail if you’re lucky [...]

I’m procrastinating. For the last 3 days I have had a hard time opening a new word document. I still haven’t done it. Instead I started reading another book for my last essay of the semester. 2 more weeks and I’m going home. I feel exhausted, to tell you the truth. Constant concentration, repetitive days, [...]

I’m reading a really ‘gripping’ book by Haideh Moghissi called ‘Feminism and Islamic Fundamentalism: The Limits of Postmodern Analysis’ and it’s interesting for me because it sort of addresses a dilemma that I have had ever since I started studying the Middle East region and Islam. Moghissi criticizes ‘postmodern relativism’ because it basically literally follows [...]

Today I ate the last cookie my Mami had made for me and were brought to me by Staša and Peter when they visited me almost two weeks ago. I felt genuinely sad. Both because they were delicious (made with my Babi’s walnuts – btw. she said she must have had like 200 kg of [...]

I am torn. Torn because of reading about all these conflicting views regarding organic food and fair-trade products.

But [...]

I usually read this blog from a Saudi guy called Ahmed and in his last blog he talks about an online campaign which was started by a Saudi women entitled ‘Where is the Change’. The gist of the problem is that some stores in Saudia refuse to give change back with the excuse that they [...]

Yesterday evening was a complete waste of my time. After setting up, extremely enthusiastically I should add, my blog page, I started writing the essay and couldn’t produce more than a sentence. My concentration was lost by the fact that one of my flatmates (I leave with 5 other grad students) appeared on the iTunes. [...]

So………instead of intensly writing my essay which is due tomorrow at 9 pm I came up with the idea of creating my own blog. A completely obvious activity if you’re swamped with work. But today I spoke to a very dear friend of mine, Özgün, who’s studying in the USA and it again reminded me [...]
