I’m Back!

Hey Maniacs 🙂

I know I’ve been gone a long while…but I have my reasons!
I’m hoping to get back on track and post more here and definitely make more videos on my YT channel.
Basically, I wasn’t feeling the need to share here anymore. Besides, this whole blog started as a mean to promote my YT channel, which is what I want to be my ultimate income source from advertisements. I have shared really intimate things about myself only a few times, and even though it was very empowering, I was worried that people I know would get more info about me, and we all know knowledge is power. I just didn’t want to be vulnerable. 
But at this period in my life I feel much more safe to walk about in this world and I’m not afraid to share my true feelings, at least here on my blog. I even feel the need to, especially now, that I have deleted my Facebook account. on my account deletion, i plan to make a whole video talking about it, so wait for it 🙂 
So In about two months, I’ll be finishing my BA degree! well, at least I won’t have to go to classes anymore, I’ll then have to take exam and write papers for a long while 🙁
I can’t believe it’s gonna be all over soon! I mean, who knows where I’ll be next year?
But then again, it’s a wonderful opportunity to make changes and do different things! it’s not a secret I was suffering every minute of these studies, and I have no intention whatsoever to work in something related to my field [east Asian studies]. I could look at it as a waste of time, but I choose to see it as something that I completed from start to end, overcoming a challenge, and a mean to enrich myself. 
In the end, without my resolution to go to the university a few years ago, I don’t know how I would have gotten out of the crisis I was in at the time. I made some great friends and learned a lot about myself.
Anyhow, I have a deadline to all the papers, as i’m going to trek the Israel Trail in September 🙂
Surprised? Me too. It all started on the day I deleted my facebook and broke up with my ex boyfriend. 
I was walking on the way to class, and saw a discounted book fare on the way. You know those books who just *call out* to you? this one was Wild by Cheryl Strayed. It’s a story about a woman who decided to hike the Pacific Crest Trail, after getting a divorce and having her life all messed up. 
The funny thing is, two days before I got the book, I was walking on a trail [not something I EVER do!] quite close to my parents house, that the Israel Trail was going next to. I didn’t pay much attention to it, but I noticed it has a different color. 9 years before that, I heard about the trail for the first time when I was in sorting for the army [I didn’t enlist in the end]. a vegan friend there told me she knows someone who’s doing it, and I remember thinking “that’s crazy! and awesome! but absolutely not for me”. but for those of you who know about my Freud crush, know that I truly believe our subconscious is dynamic, and things that go dwell there, don’t just sit idle, and they influence us in different ways. So while reading the book, I was like “omg. I’m going to a journey on the Israel national trail”.
But the trail is only two months, three tops! what will I do later? I don’t wanna go back to my ordinary boring life…heck, I don’t even wanna live such a life! A life where you get up in the morning, go to a job you don’t like so you could buy things you don’t need. Fuck it! I’ve been in a minimalism journey for almost a year now! I don’t need to work to but things cause I don’t need things! I don’t want to have a limitless amount of useless objects that ground me to a certain place and deny me my movement freedom! I mean after all, experiences are worth more than objects right?
So I don’t know how, this got me thinking I need to go travel the world.
That’s settled. I’ll be off to Thailand in November 🙂
I’ll be posting more in my blog so be sure to check it out! I even sorted out my RSS feed, so you can sub and get notified whenever I have something new up.
Peace

My Life Through Drawings & A Quick Update

Hello Little Maniacs!

Sorry I haven’t been here for a while, and for uploading only awesome videos and not super awesome one’s.
I have been extremely busy with my personal life and trying to get back on track in my studies.
How’s it going your’e asking?? Frankly not so well, but hey! at least I’m going to class everyday!
That’s something!

My last super awesome video I uploaded was a Draw My Life video I decided on making after I saw all this Youtubers making one. It’s seemed like a great way to express yourself and more personal stuff that one might not feel comfy enough talking straight to camera about.

Ever since uploading this video I feel so much relief, so much stress taken off. I have nothing to be ashamed of myself. on the contrary, I’m proud of myself and the place I stand in now, and I’m even thinking about making a video talking about how to help yourself and encourage yourself to get better and get help, Cause I’ve been in so many horrible places in life and I wished I had any positive figure in life I could relate to.

Once again I want to use this platform to thank you all, I’m really grateful to you guys, as a lot of where I am now is thanks to you! Watching my videos, my blogs, liking, sharing and commenting, it really does mean the world for me.
I love you♥

Here’s a preview to a makeup tutorial I’m editing for next week 🙂
How do you like this look??

See you soon!
LOVE

Snow In Israel – Winter 2013!

Sup Maniacs 🙂
Guess what?
It snowed in Israel! 
Well, there are places in Israel that snow every winter, but in my city – Jerusalem, it doesn’t snow every year and that why its such a HUGE event for all of us!
It’s funny, because it doesn’t snow frequently we don’t really know how to handle our normal lives when it snows, so the public transportation stops, schools are off, all the stores are closed, and a snowy day becomes a holiday in no time 🙂
So in my snowy holiday yesterday, I stayed home cause the university was closed.
Alina imas [check her channel here! http://www.youtube.com/user/alinyanart], my best friend and flatmate, made us vegan breakfast with a vegan Shakshuka [Israeli food that usually uses eggs] and I made us vegan tomato soup and Moroccan porridge named Lchshu, which is a traditional dish in my family to cook when it snows [I’m half Moroccan half Bulgarian, which means my ancestors came to Israel from these countries], cause it has so much garlic and Coriander, that it makes it the perfect natural antibiotic medicine for the cold and snowy days.
But off course we didn’t stay eating all day at home when it’s snowing! 
We went outside to play like little kids 🙂
We took some pics and we made a snow cat!
