that's HOT!

here in saudi scorching heat is something very common during late spring and summer seasons but this time it's too much. on the news now, weather broadcasters are forecasting a major heat wave coming our way! temperature might even reach 60 degrees Celsius! just when I thought susan boyle was the only thing hotter than global warming 
its shitty u no day or night now u feel like ur trapped in a hair drier with disgusting hot winds 24/7! (yet ur clothes dnt shrink) 
I wonder how peps on the equator feel! probably by now they can cauz sparks by just blinking.
I can personally light a match on my tongue...
thankfully sweating here in the sandy kingdom is in one's own favour cuz it acts as a natural cooling system when ac's r unavailable.

the weather anchors are surprisingly conveniant now in oppose to what they forgot to warn us about months ago. I am not sure if u guys had seen it on the news but it was this major sandstorm that engulfed Riyadh (the capital of KSA, the city I live in, my hometown, il shut up now). it was so massive! I was in my kitchen ready to leave to the gym when literally in a second I felt the kitchen get darker; so I looked out the window and noticed my whole garden was orange! (MARS! was the exact word and planet that came to my mind)
here r some links:

ps. my friends arrived (our weekly BBQ, usually on friday's), so I have to go cook some meat  and sausages on the marble tiles in my front yard

This is very exciting! I've been meaning to start a blog for sometime now but never really knew how to organize my shit nor decide on what to to post first.

I will be posting my anecdotes and opinion as I go, hope you enjoy them as much as I had enjoyed experiencing them. 

I just finished a macro-economics assignment, what a mess! I had to search for central banks of an oil producing country and a non oil producing country to compare their GDP's over the last five years and somehow analyze the data (do I look like an economist!?).

for the first choice I picked saudi arabia :D but as for the second choice I had to go through three f'n countries!! the 1st one i chose was lebanon, when I entered the site I found no economy! no GDP! I swear a cone of ice-cream there is 2000 livres! (their currency). my 2nd choice was Bahrain (so now I'm thinking to myself this has gotta be good cuz they have this new campaign as a business friendly country so I figured their economy must be booming with activity and new projects) think I was right?? nigga the hellz na! theirs was the most ridiculous one...they had nothing published but did have the courtesy to display "Please visist us again soon" as if it were a restaurant or someshit! I can just imagine their stores "we are closed because we are currently not open" WTF!
finally for my third choice i went with egypt. Thankfully, their data was ready and available.

when I came to analyze the numbers for saudi, all I could see was more numbers! so I tried to take a hunch and wrote: the numbers look pretty good, certainly positive, I can see a gradual increase in GDP, long live the king.
as for egypt, somehow when I calculated the data i ended up with negative statistical results :s

ps. i am not talking to myself, I will have subscribers and readers soon!
