I always hated my birthday but this one is extra special.

on next Friday the 11th of May I'll be sent away (hey, that rhymes!).

I'll start my first paid job (no, I wasn't unemployed til now, I just finished my mandatory post-graduation training course which was a complete waste of time just like the university itself).

I'll be posted to Southern Sinai & just like always, the Egyptian proverb "a good thing is never complete" applies to me. the place is great considering the situation the country is in BUT it had to be in the 60km gap of communication, no cell phone coverage or internet access. only a hard line which can't be upgraded to use DSL & takes half an hour just to open internet using a dial-up modem.

there is "unofficial" system of working schedule there, 15 days in Sinai & 15 days at home, but being new to the place I'll be given a month at work in the first run.

if God gives me more time down here this should go on til my mandatory reserve army service by next January when I'll be enlisted for 3 years as a reserve army lieutenant & it goes without saying, almost all communications will be lost by then.

anyway, I'm glad for the good times I spent here on dA, caused some havoc, spread some ideas & met some people who I consider to be my closest REAL LIFE friends.

thank you all for your kind birthday wishes, I know it's sincere & I'm for ever grateful.

Hashem

PS: don't ask what sort of job I do because I wont answer, but I assure you it's dull boring stressful job, I hate it & I'll be doing it for the rest of my life.

Happy birthday! Hope you do well in your labour, and hope your mind doesn't rot from the boredom and stress. Strength to your arm!

I almost feel like crying; it's as if you're dying! Hey; that rhymes! But you are one of the most memorable people on DA and one who has made a big difference. you have left an important imprint. And even when you are away from us you will still be here in spirit.

oh, I'm so sorry for making you feel sad... I have no regrets except may be not getting to know you better.
& what ever happens I'll always be in touch even if it's not as much as I want ;)

as for the imprint... like the great Bart Simpson once said: I didn't do it :lol:

Well, I have come to the conclusion that life is rather sad. I'm re-reading Saint Therese's autobiography right now and she says "With tears in my eyes I realized at an early age that life is nothing more than a series of goodbyes and separations and pain. It is only when we enter that Eternal Afterlife that we shall never again shed tears of sorrow over losing people."

Hmm not so good to hear about that. Nevertheless I hope you have a nice time, think positive! Better than no job or a criminal one ;)
Happy Birthday and best wishes for you :salute:
(hope you like the present:))

I understand. In some situation I feel strange about think positive.

Hah, that really rhymes, I already ended up singing this xD

I don't know what exactly to say but I can tell you that I also consider you a real life comrade, it doesn't matter we talk to eachother by the Internet. It matters that we could discuss things that really make sense, talk about our interests, history, spread the idea, be friends who really know what friendship is. Thanks to you I know more about the Arab world, I mean I know it from a different side than the one presented in the media and so on, the text you wrote about the "revolution" in Egypt can be an example, it's also because of simply talking to you. You were really useful here.
I hate how people think the Nazis hate other races and can cooperate only with their own nation. We and many others here on dA show it's totally not true...

thank you, nothing needs to be said. we did what friends do... spoke, discussed serious business, laughed & sometimes just hang out wasting time. the only difference is we never met face to face but why this make it less of a friendship?

we did show a forcefully hidden unwanted side to what we believe, rocked the boat & I know that my friends here including you will keep on rocking ;)

& may be someday I do the thing I want the most, meet all my friends & shake their hands.

True, you are right.

Yeah, I and the others will keep on rocking :D And the fact that we won't really have any contact now doesn't mean we won't remember that there's always someone else with similar beliefs.

That would be great. Especially if everyone from here would meet in one place.

why will you be doing it if it's boring and stressful and you don't like it?

people here don't chose what collage they join, they are bound by 2 things: parents' wishes & high school grades. this gives them a limited range of specialties (university here is classified into certain specialties from first year). & by the time you figure it out (& grow your own opinions, character & balls) it's too late (usually 2 or 3 years later & no chance for leaving to another good collage).

there is no internships or campus tours before joining, no special qualifications required more than the grades which reflects absolutely nothing regarding personal capabilities or inclinations & even the grades themselves are for how much you can memorize.

screwed up system made to produce graduates with empty titles.

Unfortunately, it's the same here. You can go to whatever school you'd like to if you have good grades, but once you finish it, you'll be looking for any job that comes, not thinking twice to accept it if available.

Good luck with the job!
