Be Careful What you Wish For

Be Careful What you Wish For

Author : Aliaa nabil

For as long as I can remember, I’d begged my parents to stay in Egypt and stop dragging us back to Kuwait after the summer vacation. Soon enough, my prayers were answered, and back to Egypt, my family came. But Egypt was not the country I’d long imagined it to be; it had changed; people had changed. I came to discover “interesting” qualities about my relatives that only geographic proximity had rendered possible. I struggled to fit inI believe I still do on some level. I was alone; nobody understood me; nobody listened to me. Until I discovered my new best friends: a pen, paper, and a wild imagination. I would hole up for days on end and write. It was the only time I could pretend all was well with the world. Things as little as a squabble with a friend, a conversation with my Mom, or a disagreement with a classmate would trigger a story: a story about the status quo, about what I want my life to be like, and about unfulfilled dreams. I took comfort in writing. It was what made me get up the next morning. It gave me hope; it kept me sane; it gave me a voice.
