a lost giraffe in the chaotic crossroad of life, a tea drinker, an omnivore and in love with literature, a linguaphile and gamer, many movies many books, never enough, never hesitate to correct my mistakes, I might end up learning something. #آوای_سعید #شعر_سعید I ought to take this pen and make a circle around you!
Dear Friend, Good day and compliments, I know this letter will definitely come to you as a surprise, but I implore you to take the time to go through it carefully as the decision you make will go off a long way to determine my future and continued existence,Please allow me to introduce myself.I am CAPTAIN GREG, in 4th Battalion, 64th Armored Regiment unit here that Patrols the helmand province, Afghanistan. I am desperately in need of assistance and I have summoned up courage to contact you. I am presently in Afghanistan and I found your contact particulars in an address journal. I am seeking your assistance to evacuate the sum of $25m (Twenty five Million United States Dollars) to you,as far as I can be assured that it will be safe in your care until I complete my service here. This is no stolen money and there are no dangers involved.
is the future of the world as dark to you as it seems to me? I know about the politics in Iran, and we have got to be very lucky to survive the power struggle that will ensue after the current supreme leader dies (he's old and has cancer). a lot of corruption because of petrodollars :|
this was inside the holy shrine of Shah Cheragh. the thing about these shrines is, they usually let tourists (who are not muslim) enter the courtyard, but they can't enter the shrine itself, the full hijab, with what we call Chador is mandatory for women to enter even the courtyard .
is there any way to increase the volume of one's writing? as far as I can remember I've had problems with minimum word limits for essays, for an essay of say minimum 1000 words, I'd finish all I had to say in less than 400, when it got to 10 pages, I would finish all I had to say on the matter in 4 or 5 pages, if I write more than that, I feel redundant and repetitive, and now that I have to write chapters of minimum 20 pages, I'm banging my head against the wall.
around two years ago, I had a course with my favorite professor on the Psychology of Prejudice, and in that course we saw that after people were educated about racism, their racist behavior was reduced. however, there was also this notion of aversive racism, in which people are still racist, but they just don't show it as much as a classic plantation owner of old would do. at the end of the course I had the feeling that what those racism education does to truly racist people, is to teach them how to hide it better instead of how to leave being a racist person. I asked the professor the same question, that don't these programs just teach them to hide their real thoughts better, and she laughed and said no, I hope not.
today, in the subway, I finally finished reading "for whom the bell tolls". it took me a whole year to read it, as I read a third of it last year and the rest this summer. I don't agree with what's written on the back of the book : "Hemingway's best work" I would always prefer a farewell to arms.
