Minerva is a Hero! Just that.

"I didn't want to talk about what I'm passing through right now, and when people are asking me how I'm feeling, I'm saying I'm good. Maybe this will make them feel a bit better. He who sees the agonies of others may rethink theirs."

"A dear person asked me to write about what I'm passing through and I couldn't say no. I may be living the hardest days ever. I know I have said this before, but now I truly believe this. I thought what I have passed through in the past was very tough, but now I see it as something very minimal... Two months ago my health deteriorated greatly and I started my university studies. The projects and studies became harder and I couldn't deliver my projects on time. Thankfully, my university doctors were understanding and they let me be a bit late. Also there's a person whom I love, who helps me with my assignments. I chose interior design and it is tough and might need physical effort, but hopefully, I will be able to finish it.

I have felt many illnesses, and many other things that I don't know of.

On top of all this, being locked down at home is sad, while my body is not helping me walk freely... but im still fighting regardless of everything. We're all tired and we're all burnt out, but "life is a victory for the strong, and not the weak"... I didn't want to talk about what I'm passing through right now because when people are asking me how I'm feeling, I'm saying I'm good. Maybe this will make them feel a bit better. He who sees the agonies of others may rethink theirs."

"ما كنت حابي احكي عن وضعي لان كل الي عم يسألوا عني عم قلن اني منيحة بس بلكي وضعي بخفف عنكن شوي لان الي بيشوف مصيبة غيرو بتهون عليه مصيبتو."

"في حدا كتير غالي عليي طلب مني اني اكتب شوي عن الفترة الي عم بمرق فيها و طبعاً ما فيي ارفضلو طلب. يمكن هاي اصعب مرحلة عم بمرق فيها .. كتير قلت هالشي قبل لحد ما اسا عنجد وصلت لهيدي المرحلة و عرفت انو كل الي مرق كان صعب كتير بوقتا و هلق عم شوفو شي عادي.. من شهرين انتكست صحتي ورجعت لورا كتير وبلشت جامعة وضغط درس وبطّل فيي سلم el projects عالوقت والحمدلله دكاترة الجامعة كتير كانوا مناح معي وخلوني سلم عراحتي واكيد في شخص بحبو بيساعدني وبخلصلي el assignments .. صح الاختصاص الي اخترتو صعب (interior design) وبدو مجهود جسدي كتير بس انشالله شوي شوي بخلص ..
