I don’t think I even need an intro for that one. If you’re indeed a woman, then go ahead, and read on because this one is for you!
What would you do if you were the punchline of every joke?
If you were the odd one out in most conversations
The one expected to obey and stay silent
The one expected to never lead, but always follow
The one they told to never say no
The one who’s afraid to walk in the streets
The one defined not by what she does, but by what she looks like
The one who struggles to have a voice or to speak out
The one they look at as overly emotional and ridiculously sensitive
The one expected to do well in the kitchen as a given but is met with surprise if she shows any signs of intelligence
The one who no one anticipates would fight back
And above all, the one who is judged the most.
Well, some do nothing about it.
But, some women really do appreciate a good challenge. Some women don’t fear change, but fight for it
Some women won’t let you stand in the way of their dreams so you can reach yours
Some women won’t let you count them out of the conversation..out of the whole equation
Some women will stand up for what they believe in and will tell you when you’re wrong
Won’t laugh at your silly jokes
Won’t be afraid of aiming for what they want
Won’t back down for you to shine on
Won’t let you silence their cries so you could speak
Won’t sacrifice their happiness for your comfortableness
Won’t act like ladies if they don’t feel like it
Won’t dumb themselves down to make you feel like the one with the brains
Won’t take no for an answer and will question everything until they run completely out of questions
Because simply, some women don’t care about what you think
Or about how you see them.
And I dream of a day when I get to say all women.
When all women start believing that they deserve so much more than what they’re getting
And go out and get it.
This is a salute, to every single woman who stands her ground
Who doesn’t cave in in the face of society.
Who rips the given rule book apart.
Dear women, please go after what you want and show them all what you’re made of.
Egypt Made it To the Top of the List Using Oranges
For years, Egypt has been well known for exporting a lot of our unique ancient Egyptian cotton and as you know, most things we import are from China. Everything you own probably has an imprint on it claiming that it was “made in China“.
Which is why we were genuinely proud and happy to hear that Egypt has finally overtaken Spain as the top orange exporter worldwide!
Spain was always well known for their citrusy oranges that has been a top seller for years and years. We’re glad to finally hear the Egypt beat Spain and is currently the top orange exporter worldwide according to Abdel Hamid el Demerdash, the head of the Agriculture Exporting Council.
The year before, charts and graphs showed that Spain was dominating regarding the orange market and trading. This year though, it is shown that Spain has ranked second to Egypt for the first time in history! What?
According to Demerdash, Egypt tends to earn an income of $1 billion dollars a year off of oranges. Ever since 2017, Egypt was keen on making it to the top of the list by showing people how our country grown oranges are the best. Since then, 17% has increased annually on exporting oranges.
It is known that Brazil, India, China, US and Mexico are the top producers for citrus, but all of their citrus goes into domestic consumption rather than exporting and importing.
Egypt’s cheaper and healthier oranges have been flooding the market world wide and has made it on the top shelves of Myanmar, Japan, Russia, Europe, and even Uruguay!
The government has been working in expanding the amount and acres of farmland throughout the years to allow a larger profit and income to enter our country. Egypt has also been a powerful exporter in terms of Potatoes, Onions, Garlic, and even Grapes!
Egypt had faced difficulties in 2017 when Kenya, Saudi Arabia, and even Sudan had banned our fruits from entering their market due to the amount of pesticides induced in the vegetables and fruits thus violating international health and safety standards! Yikes!
Which is why we’re left dumbfounded and honestly quite impressed at the amount of positive remarks and changes we’ve been making recently! Watch out people because Egypt is booming!
Hottest Tattoo Artists in Town 2020
Art has been one of the most important things we have been graced with, because if you think about it this way, Art can be expressed in many different ways. For instance, Art can be expressed through a certain dance or maybe even a specific painting, which is why we hold on to it so dearly.
