Mother, I love you so much. You dragged my sorry ass around for 9 months until you gave birth. You loved me, fed me, dressed me, read stories for me, taught me to read, taught me about ancient history and so much more. I love you with all my heart. I love you so much that I always compare women I met with you. I look for the strength, intelligence, kindness, love and warmth that you have because I wish my children to one day have the same beautiful mother.
Your kind words wipe away my tears, and your kisses take away my sadness and problems. I want you to always be proud of me, and I will do all I can to make sure that you never need to suffer any of the hardship that you've gone through ever again.
As for the rest;
Check out this Mr.T video.

Come around, feel the sound
Oh you make my heart pound
Fill me up, bring me down
When I hear your sound
The bunkering period has begun now. I've decided to pick myself up off the ground, and put my pieces back together. So yes, this means that the era of cramming and hardcore studying has arrived!!! I celebrate this fact by getting my credits out the way and passing my first exam to kick things off properly!
Anyhow, I have this love-hate relationship with this specific period in time. I do hate being forced to study, to miss out on holidays and vacations, but most of all to miss out on Sweden and a proper summer. BUT! (and here's a big one) things are not all bad!
I also love the insight I always gain during these trying times. It is not until you push yourself to your limits that you truly know yourself and what can I say, I've pushed myself to many limits upon arriving here in 2007.
But I still feel there is much more to learn, about myself and about how I interact and feel about certain things and scenarios.
I always feel like I'm growing as a person, enriching my life with new important and less important experiences that help me shape myself, shape my thoughts but at the same time keep me fluent and unshaped like water.
It is here, where I truly matured and learned how to stand up for myself, to find my "Taymaz'ness", to pursue the goals and interest which I hold dear and so much more.
I have this funny tradition of always installing Linux (Ubuntu to be more specific) each year just around this time of the year, vowing to never use Windows again and to set myself free from my shackles. But it's not until now that I fully understand that we are not limited by others, we limit ourselves according to others.
So next time you're being part of a situation in which you feel limited, unhappy and unjustly treated. Don't cry. Don't panic. YOU have the power to break through those shackles. If I could do it, so can you! Believe in yourself.
You are beautiful, you are smart, you are ambitious and loving. I believe in you, so why won't you start believing in yourself? :)

This is the 3rd week the Playstation Network has been offline. It's especially hard now cause I'm feeling so bored and lonely!!! I can't unwind after a stressful day and because of it, I can't sit down and focus enough to study.
Sigh... please PSN... get back!!

During this campaign I'll be posting profound randomness at a reckless rate. Actually I'll just be blogging about EVERY "first thought" that strikes me at certain timings during the day (which I'll disclose at the end).
So without further ado, let me introduce you to the first day of the Enter the Profoundness campaign!
I've been spending way too long checking my tongue in the mirror
And bending over backwards just to try to see it clearer
But my breath fogged up the glass
And so I drew a new face and laughed
I guess what I'm be saying is there ain't no better reason
To rid yourself of vanity and just go with the seasons
It's what we aim to do
Our name is our virtue

It's important to utilize our powers of observation so that we can correctly move according to the political struggle (read class struggle) in which we are in the midst of.
"WTF are you talking about?" you might wonder. Well, we are all members of our respective classes in society. Needless to say that the majority of us are represented in the working class whereas a tiny minority, in comparison, is placed under the bourgeois banner. The roles we play, inherently determine the status quo of the capitalist economy, and in turn the world.
I know people preach that politics should not interfere with personal relations, but I do dare to say that it very much does so indeed. A capitalist sees not in him to care for your demise, because should he do so he would ruin himself. Meaning he wouldn't be a good capitalist to begin with, right?
So if this person is so blatantly out to harm you, dry out every penny out of you, make you endure slave labor to sustain your petty life which itself is perpetuated by the advertisements made by said person's products. Why do you not see him as an enemy?
He is not the enemy in the traditional samurai-sense of things, but rather the kind of enemy who silently bleeds you out without you so much as suspecting it.
Personally, I'm not into the whole alienating myself from others thing. But I do make a very distinct understanding of who the enemy is. And I never fool myself into forgetting that a capitalist is my enemy, and will be so regardless of how nice or awful he is. A person like that can never be considered a true friend of mine, regardless of how much this person claims to "care" for me. Because the very nature of the system he so profoundly supports is based upon the very principle of him harming me.
So I say nay. To me, you are nothing but despots clinging on to a broken system which will be replaced, just as how the industrial revolutions of the world spawned the proletariat and the bourgeois toppled the feudal lords, and one day democracy shall truly win and the world will belong to the working class. It's either that, or the death of us all. And since the capitalists don't care about others but their own profit, we better wake up soon to realize who our enemy truly is or we're all doomed.
The enemy is not some "insurgent" or random fanatic in the Middle-East, nor is it some fanatic Jesuit from the US. It's the bourgeois mass murderer who is sucking our planet dry for their profit. The leeching parasites who stuck themselves onto others slowly, slowly, slowly tapping off their life energy.

Well well well, a new era has begun in which I have finally installed an app that enables me to blog on the go.
I really do love the ways in which we can utilize all these services seamlessly via mobile platforms.
Anyhow, my thoughts go to the people of south east asia, who are in the midst of a natural disaster. My german friend who lives in osaka thankfully is safe and sound, but I wish this could be said about everyone involved.
Be strong, you are not alone.

But what bears to mind is something a tad more interesting than my personal disarray.
I'm a medical student, meaning some day I'll be a doctor. But at the same time I take on the challenge with some reservations. I think it's important to stress the fact that generally speaking, humans were "healthier" back in the day compared to how we fair today.
Now before you start off ranting about how a simple flu or strep throat ravaged lives, please bear in mind that I'm referring to the days of modest antibiotic treatments, and how reserved we (medical community) were in prescribing them to patients. Most people just had the common cold come and go without any real use of drugs. I mean sure, they might have been KO'd for a week or so, but it would pass. In fact, in most cases I dare to say we were more resistant to some forms of common colds.
But then... the "quick-fix" mentality sprung and we started prescribing and taking drugs and pills for a quick fix for everything. And look at the aftermath now, we are actively making sure that evolution kicks in at a higher rate within bacteria and virii thus making our "cures" useless. This is quite alarming, because even TODAY there are scenarios where contemporary treatment is lacking simply due to resistance developed by the infectants. Of course this also leads to us being forced to apply more aggressive treatment plans which in fact are TOXIC to your body.
And for the love of god, get over the "OMG I GOTTA GET A FLU-SHOT"-craze. Every year there are thousands of people all over the world who die from the flu. It doesn't matter which type of the flu, all of them are just as lethal/non-lethal. It all depends on your current conditions. Some people share risk factors that upon infection can cause death. Most healthy normal people don't.
So if you're 15-55, healthy and with no underlying conditions (such as previous heart failures, etc etc) then don't worry. Avoid the sick people, if you get the flu then just "rest it out" and let your immune system do what it's supposed to do.
After all, there's a reason we HAVE an immune system to begin with, right? :)

It comes to mind that given our current resources being finite, we should strive to produce products which are sustainable and upgradeable in a way that allows us to limit the excess waste which accumulates after excessive production. An example would be, imagine if we produced a car out of the sturdiest most reliable material, and designed it in a way that it was both lenient on the environment as well as easily maintainable forever or at least for a very long time. Or imagine a computer designed with international standards so that component switching for upgrades were made seamlessly simple and the product itself would be "ever-lasting".
But you know, things aren't supposed to last for two reasons. One reason is the very obvious law which governs the universe, being how nothing is everlasting and that all things will decay. The other more profound reason is simply profit. Everything we have is not flawlessly designed, but rather intentionally flawed so that the product will break. Once it breaks, we are forced to either buy a new one or to repair the old one by buying new stuff to it. This is how companies stay afloat.
It's not innovation that drives or excels our technology, it's the failure of it. Just look at the explosive rate of which cellphones are being produced. A Sony Ericsson official once said that their products (cellphones) were designed to last 2-3 years at best because that was their intended lifespan. After that it was thought that the customer would purchase a new phone. And now with that in mind, try to picture your own consumption and how many times you've purchased a new phone, laptop or any other device. Interesting isn't it?
It's not until we look back and think about how much we've spent on these silly upgrades that we realize and, in a way, regret our expenditures in the past. But how were we to know? And how are we to refrain from this? You might think about these things today, but in 6-12 months from now you'll be standing there in your shop ready to purchase x item again. And so it continues until there is nothing left to produce, until there's nothing left at all.
The truth is, it's not the companies that are to blame for polluting the planet. Nor the government for allowing them or not enforcing high enough taxes or whatever. It's YOUR fault. It' my fault, it's every consumers fault - for not considering the moral and environmental price that our consumption pays.
Ah well, enough ranting, time to sleep.

I like the depth and profoundness of the poem which is expressed in such a subtle and simplistic matter. It's simply beautiful. Anyway, here it goes;
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.
He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

En ung kvinna vid namn Natalie Sörman, åkte buss med sin kompis från Huskvarna mot Jönköping då ett gäng skinskallar hoppar på bussen. Skinskallarna satte sig längst bak i bussen och började sjunga nazist sånger och hylla Adolf Hitler, antagligen för att bete sig motbjudande mot chauffören. Natalie Sörman, bara 16 år gammal, vände sig då om och bad dem sluta upp med detta beteende, och i gengäld så fortsatte dem att sjunga ännu högre. Natalie vände sig om igen och bad dom sluta upp, och då kommer en av skinskallarna fram till henne och misshandlar henne.
Vid nästa hållplats så hoppar de av bussen, men inte innan en av skinskallarna, en man, kastar en full ölburk mot Natalies huvud, vilket ledde till att hon tuppade av för att sen väckas av polis och ambulans personal.
Skinskallarna blev videofilmade av övervakrningsutrustning på bussen och kommer åka dit för sitt äckliga beteende. Men det viktiga att ta från allt det här är vilket heroiskt mod unga Natalie uppvisade.
Så här är mitt tack till dig Natalie, tack för att du finns och att du är en människa med mod att säga emot. Jag önskar dig all lycka i framtiden!!

I mean sure, I did prepare myself somewhat for Stomatology before the break but I've probably forgotten most of it. Then there's Propedeutics of Surgery which hopefully isn't that bad.. but what really worries me is the Pharmacology final. It's supposedly quite immense. And well, I'll be forced to study that so hardcore so that I can get rid of it before the next semester starts. Add to all of this, the fact that I'll be BACK in that godforsaken place.
It's really very depressing. I'd say that 5 years ago I was pretty discontent with my life in Sweden and I couldn't wait to get out of here. Now, it's the complete opposite. I know I should have studied and done some work when I was home over the xmas holidays but I simply couldn't. I mean, I havent been "home" for a whole year. And last year was pretty harsh on me, I'd say that from mid April onwards, (pretty much until 17th of December when I arrived in Sweden) I was in a huge depression.
Moving houses, uni stress, and just being away from home and civilization took its toll on me.
But ah well, I guess I need to start with the "mantras" now so that I don't collapse into another shitty state when I get back. But as I said before, this year I'm not going to let myself get overwhelmed by the hardship over there. I'm going to embrace things with a better attitude, or at least try to, and hopefully at the end of the next semester I'll have a greater shot at a summer vacation.
On a lighter side of things, this trip allowed me the chance of rekindling with one of my oldest friends. A person whom I've been friends with since I was.. hmm... probably 5 years old. He was my neighbor back then, and he still is!! It's been really fun to hang out with him again like we used to. Going around shopping, eating out, or just messing around. It really made my stay here very enjoyable. We even managed to set out some goals for some epic journeys. First off he's probably coming to visit me as soon as things quite down over there. And then, I FINALLY found a companion for my epic-winter-survival-in-the-mountains-for-a-week journey in northern Sweden. I pitched the idea to him, and well, being like-minded he immediately took a liking to it!
So that's that.
Anyways, time to go shopping for some snus haha!
Toodlez and au revoir Sweden!
