First of all this is a glimpse at who I am:
Im Nour (that means light in arabic), I'm 19 and I live in Beirut Lebanon.
Here are some random facts: I speak English, Arabic, French and a bit of Spanish, I also did a few years of Latin in school but I couldn't remember a word of it to save my life. I’m currently studying Computer Science which is something I’ve never thought I’d pick but I recently fell in love with it and I think everyone should try coding at least once. I also recently got into rugby, which is pretty cool especially since we’re one of the first girl teams in my country (yay!). Also, Im not sure why Im sharing this but, my favourite foods all start with a P and they’re peanut butter, popcorn, pickles and poutine.
Secondly here are a few lists of things I’d like you guys to check out.:
4 movies I think everyone should watch:
Enter the void by Gaspard Noe (Warning: Its a bit disturbing)
Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain - Jean-Pierre Jeunet (The soundtrack is just breath taking, its by Yann Tiersen and you should totally check it out.)
Harvie Krumpet - Adam Elliot
West Beirut- Ziad Doueiri
Good Bye, Lenin! - Woflgang Becker(Also has a soundtrack by Yann Tiersen)
4 Songs I absolutely adore:
Old Stars - Jack The Ripper
Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk- Rufus Wainwright
Shim El Yasmine - Mashrou’ Leila (They’re a great Lebanese band)
Misery - Green Day (fun fact I used to be obsessed with them in my early teens)
4 Books that are a great read
Le Petit Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi (Graphic Novel)
Flowers in the Attic by V.C Andrews (Warning: F*cked up.)
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon.
Also, if you speak french, I totally recommend Les Fleurs du Mal by Charles Baudelaire.
Finally, here are a few questions I’d like to ask you guys:
1- If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be?
2- Why did you pick the job/major you're in (or hoping to get into)?
3- Whats a movie/book/song I should check out.
4- Whats a story you like sharing with people?
PS: I’m going to India this summer and I was wondering if you guys have any tips or ideas on what I should do while I'm there?
PPS: I’ve you’re ever planning on coming to Lebanon (which you should!) don't hesitate to hit me up for ideas on what to do here.
