2010 was a new beginning… preparations, marriage and festive occasions…
2011 was the year of vacations… Here are the top 10 reasons we loved 2011:
4- In July 2011, we planned a New York Trip with our friends. We first went to Philadelphia then took the bus and spent a few days in New York city. We went to Broadway and saw “The Addams Family” and got Brook Shields autograph.
5- In August 2011, my mother came to visit during the month of Ramadan. Her vacation was a breath of fresh air for us. We enjoyed her company.
6- In December 2011, we planned a Florida trip to visit my husbands uncle and enjoy what Florida got to offer. We went to St. Augustine, the oldest city and port in the US. We then headed to Orlando and experienced the magical Magic Kingdom and Epcot.
7- Aside from vacations, 2011 gave us the opportunity to bond and get to know each other more and more.
8- Along with bonding, in 2011 we maintained our health. We tried to eat right and exercise.
9- In 2011 bonding and health were also accompanied by intellectual stimuli. We took care of our mental wellness. We inaugurated www.cognitivedimension.wordpress.com to keep the ideas flowing and discussions happening.
10- In addition to the vacations, bonding, physical and mental health we got each other. And that is the greatest reason to love 2011.

Typical, is the word that first comes to your mind. It’s always the case. When will women learn that no good can come from a man?
He has a heart of stone, that is to say, if he has one in the first place. She, on the other hand, is so loving and caring.
He rationalizes each step she takes, and she feels every action he makes. She gives him her undivided attention and surrenders her love. What does he do instead?
Words start flying out easily when describing the harshness of men. His cold-blooded nature, his indifference, and hard-heartedness are some of his general attributes.
But when it comes to women, we find ourselves very careful with our choice of words. No matter how cruel we tend to be with our description, we still manage to throw in a couple of motherly and angelic words. Even when she is remote, she is concerned. Even when she is harsh, she conveys compassion.
This is how it has always been, and most probably will remain for centuries to come. Unfortunately none of us will be alive by then to confirm or challenge those accusations. The earlier we accept them, the earlier women can formulate ways to protect themselves from the one they love.
Women have always been the victim and like I stated before:
She loves him no more, but without a doubt he has been wrongfully accused that he loves another.
