Eid Sweets




متى يخلص حلو العيد وأفتك؟
عيزت وآنا آكل فيه




I went to a party. Girls were dancing; the good looking and the not so good looking but definitely confident. I was watching only; wishing I was confident enough. A friend's mother advised of enjoying one's self without putting up restrictions. That friend's mother advised too much. Finally, the advice hit me so I stood up, took off my not so comfy high heels and started dancing along with the rest of the girls who were "enjoying themselves even if they weren't that good looking, even if they didn't fit well in to their tight dress's, even if they didn't know how to dance well, even if their eyeliner extended from their eyes till their ears”. I took a few steps, very few steps when suddenly the music played got corrupted and everybody went back to their seats….

…..so much for confidence.

Yeah, I don't like that kinda scene where women dance and other women sit and watch (judge?) them. Leish chithi? :/ Especially when its a 3irs and the dance floor is packed with single girls trying to get the attention of a mom or aunt or sister in hopes of getting engaged or something. Talk about self-marketing. It doesnt have much to do with self-confidence, but i dunno it weirds me out sometimes.

Wil sweet hatha mayshahee!

The secret is to get up when the song first starts. If 1 minute has passed, then just stay sitting and wait for the next.

self-marketing.. 7ilwa! I love watching old ladies dancing.

Miya
you're right. but it takes me long to get in the mood :P the problem was that the song suddenly sarat saree3a as if it was played twice at the same time. when it first happened i thought that it was my mistake for not knowing how to dance in to the rythem hehehe until i saw the freaked out look from the girls who went back to their seats.

Breeze

Ma3lish :)

It happens even to the best of us :)

I admit i dance at parties, but doesnt have much to do with confidence really. Thats what i used to think. Hmm well actually it does. Its more like t3wid. You got a try a few times.
