I wanted to share this page with me followers. A charming young lady I met while working at a hotel in Summer 2010 is starting up her own business in Israel. She’s an American who moved to Israel about the same time I moved to Cyprus, and how she’s trying to raise funds to start her own company. I’ve made a very little donation, and I would like you to donate as little or as much as you can, as well as share her page with friends.

Reason #3 why I love my job

Reasons why I LOVE my job…

Reason #3: Sometimes, it takes hours or even days to solve a ridiculously simple problem

In my line of work, as a programmer, it could take me hours, days, or even weeks to realize that the problem was just a dot in the wrong place, or semicolon in the wrong place or wrong line. Sometimes, I would have to revert my codes and undo hours and sometimes days of coding, in an attempt to solve the problem.

You must have seen photos like the one below, if you’re a developer. Most developers and programmers can relate with this 🙂

45 Life Lessons, written by a 90 year old

  1. Life isn’t fair, but it’s still good.
  2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.
  3. Life is too short not to enjoy it.
  4. Your job won’t take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and family will.
  5. Don’t buy stuff you don’t need.
  6. You don’t have to win every argument. Stay true to yourself.
  7. Cry with someone. It’s more healing than crying alone.
  8. It’s OK to get angry with God. He can take it.
  9. Save for things that matter.
  10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
  11. Make peace with your past so it won’t screw up the present.
  12. It’s OK to let your children see you cry.
  13. Don’t compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
  14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn’t be in it.
  15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye… But don’t worry; God never blinks.
  16. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
  17. Get rid of anything that isn’t useful.  Clutter weighs you down in many ways.
  18. Whatever doesn’t kill you really does make you stronger.
  19. It’s never too late to be happy.  But it’s all up to you and no one else.
  20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don’t take no for an answer.
  21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, and wear the fancy lingerie. Don’t save it for a special occasion. Today is special.
  22. Over prepare, and then go with the flow.
  23. Be eccentric now. Don’t wait for old age to wear purple.
  24. The most important sex organ is the brain.
  25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.
  26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words, ‘In five years, will this matter?’
  27. Always choose Life.
  28. Forgive but don’t forget.
  29. What other people think of you is none of your business.
  30. Time heals almost everything. Give Time time.
  31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.
  32. Don’t take yourself so seriously. No one else does.
  33. Believe in miracles.
  34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn’t do.
  35. Don’t audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.
  36. Growing old beats the alternative — dying young.
  37. Your children get only one childhood.
  38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.
  39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.
  40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else’s, we’d grab ours back.
  41. Envy is a waste of time. Accept what you already have, not what you think you need.
  42. The best is yet to come…
  43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.
  44. Yield.
  45. Life isn’t tied with a bow, but it’s still a gift.


Highway Thoughts: September 23rd 2013

let’s see what happens today 🙂

The #sea is calmer today than it was yesterday

The belediye is cleaning up again

Just because we pay people to clean up our mess, doesn’t give us right to mess things up! #NONEcleanup

Wow! I’m really very impressed with our work yesterday… Look how clean this area has become 🙂 #NONEcleanup

I know cleaners won’t have jobs if we didn’t create mess, but we can make their jobs easier by staying neat #NONEcleanup

There’s just this good feeling about wearing new shoes, and newly washed shoes lol

Haven’t seen school this crowded since the era of the Pakistanis

Trying to decide between an iphone and an android phone…

#bbm now on #iphone & #android, trying to decide b/w android & iphone. I wanted 4s just for #instagram + paid my whatsapp till 2015 So… ?

Couldn’t do any work today… Stupid slow computer 😦

Unfortunately, i never get to play out most of my fantasies

The return of the students!

I don’t get this bus! The tv ain’t working but they leave it anyways & i always feel like “hey, a tv! maybe we’d see a movie on this trip”

It’s sad, but true… Some peoples’ reality are based off of some false information. At other times, it’s just out of sure ignorance



Reason #4 why I love my job

Reason #4: It is possible to solve a problem long before you even encounter it

Sometimes, in the kind of job that I do, it is actually possible to solve a problem long before we actually experience it. This has happened quote a number of times, and again very recently.

It suddenly came to my realization that we had to normalize our database as much as possible, and that the current DB structure wasn’t properly normalized. But then, we also needed to generate reports from data that was dynamic. For instance, we need to track sales of an item and the price of that item changed over time. Only a de-normalized database can afford this.

After the normalization process had begone, I realized the the current DB structure already solved the problem! It was such a relieve, you know, because when the DB structure was created, we didn’t have that in mind nor did we imagine the need for this. Still, it felt so good to realize 🙂

Highway Thoughts: September 22nd 2014

On my way to my Sunday morning swimming and i see my favorite akva driver… He’s got a clk benz!

Even the Turkish students are looking for houses

The truth is that, sometimes, people tend to forget that word does NOT revolve around them. Just that… Some forget more often than others

Thank God, the trash collectors just came 🙂 #NONEcleanup

Shopping for charity…

I am Kheme, I am a programmer
I am Kheme, I am a programmer

When i was little, i always admired those kids who rode bicycles as big as themselves

Beware of people who are full of words, words with no meaning or message

There is AT LEAST 1 opportunity daily, to show #kindness to another #human being
