Its not been a long time since iranian women started working outside their homes and have serious jobs. yet in this moment only 20% of us have jobs, others are house-wives or just live with their parents without being able to handle themselves financilay. fortunately this number of working women is growing as we have lots of female univiersity students (more than 50% of all students) i hope that in future things will get into a good balance and all women will work equally with men, 50-50 :)

but anyhow, when you wish a good future for yourself and your sisters, it means you have to fight for it, and try hard to change this selfish male theory that says "all high things belong to men and low ones remain women". this wrong opinion exists in most iranian men's brains! however they will finally have to leave it...

iranian culture is in transition from traditional toward modern. in traditional families, girl was trained to become a housewife and just do house hold chores, in other hand, boy was supposed to learn a skill, get a job and manage his future family. in iran today, things are different, some girls learn skills too, go to work and make money, but men haven't adjusted themselves with new situation yet. its so hard for them to see a girl doing the same job as they do, as well (or even better) than them. sometimes they tell some type of jokes, or words, obviously with the purpose of hurting their female colleagues and making the environment difficult and unfriendly for women.

and they find the easiest way for offending us, by reminding the typical image of traditional women we might be!! jokes such as this one" whats the use of your effort in learning technical knowledge? you think you need it when washing baby diapers? " and burst of laugh after that can be even more annoying..

but in fact, in opposite of what they think, its men themselves who should feel ashamed when remembering iranian tradiational women. our ancestors didn't let women learn anything other than house chores, and then claimed that women were good only for house chores!,,, its silly.

i dont know how the adds came into my blog comments, i just removed them.

Ramadan, Ramadan, Happy Ramadan!
how is it possible to be happy with Ramadan?

for me Ramadan means staying hungry for hours and hours, have no energy to work, get headache, and wait impatiently for sunset! it makes no difference if you believe in "fasting" or not, you must be hungry and thirsty because GOD wants so!! this is what living in ISLAMIC REPUBLIC means, this is what stupidity means!

don't need to remind me the old funny story about how Ramadan lets us taste the hunger that hurts poor people!, its just deceiving ourselves! if one of those firm fasting ladies or gentlemen agree to spend even 5% of his/her monthly salary for poor hungry people, then i will beleive they really care for them! but just staying hungry and forcing others fast? has nothing to do with poor people! it is silly!

in the company i work, restaurant serves no food during the Ramadan, and if you decide to bring your lunch from home there is no place for eating it. this is how they make you hate Islam and all its nasty rules which are supposed to bring happyness and luckyness for human!

Finally, i have a firm full-time job. and i should say that i was so lucky that could get this job as an engineer, in a rather good, big company in Tehran. i have a regular monthly payment which is high in comparison with average wage for a fresh graduated engineer like me. i love it to be financially independant, however, its not easy to call it "independant" if i do some simple calculations like this : i should save all my salary for 3 years continously to afford a car, i should save it all for 13 years to be able to buy the smallest cheapes apartment in the worst location of Tehran, i should pay all my monthly salary to rent that apartment! but its still OK, i keep living with my family and try to let positive thoughts and ideas enter my mind, but not negative ones!
most other iranians are living the same situation and i'm one of them, i'm proud of myself that i can be active enough to make my own money. it tastes so good to me :)

Doing a full-time job makes you spend lots of hours with your colleagues, it seems like being in the heart of the society, i get to know more people and know people more! the only thing i dont like about it is the lack of sport, cinema, books, and being with friends.

i also like to update my blog more often, i got lots of encouraging emails and like to keep this window open, it lets others have a look at my world and lets me have a look at their world and sometimes wave hands for passengers who are passing .
