Up there, the dictionary meaning of "crazy", but does it really mean that?

Being “Crazy” for me is the way of having fun. Being “Crazy” is to have a friends like Souhaib, like Natheer, like Amira Al Halabi , like Abdallah Merhebi, like Nasser Saleh and like many other. Being “Crazy” is an adventure starts with “What an idea!!  HUHAHAHAHA” and ends with “KAH KAH KAH what have we made!”

Being “Crazy” is to do some unexpected thing. Last Eid, I’ve read a status on Facebook written by Mikati, "يللا عالمراجيح" (let’s go to the amusement park), and we went there! A group of 6 (without Mikati), it was my first roller coaster ever. We had fun :D I was like “woooooooooooooooooooohoo” when they tagged me in a photo on Facebook, all of my friends, that day, asked me “Taha Why u don’t tell us about it?”

Being “Crazy” is to “colombossing” new places, to new area, it’s climbing mountains, it’s discovering every cities, every village, and everywhere. Just like the way we did with William Matar (the admin of, with Khaled Taleb (admin of the page Akkar on Facebook), with Omar Bakkour when we discovered “Jbeil Flower Festival”.

Being “Crazy” is to share the Tripolian Spirit everywhere, anywhere, and all the time.

Most of youth in Tripoli don’t know the accent, is to talk like “Em Simi” and old imaginer character, created by Souhaib Ayoub (a famous Journalist in Lebanon). When Souhaib create this character, 4 years ago we were together, I’ve even wrote some posts about her life, about her habits, about her neighborhood.

Being “Crazy” is to live a dream as if it’s real, is to see Tripoli as Las Vegas, no one will sue you for your dream, and in case you’ll need a lawyer who’s better than Khaled Merheb, the only man in the world who sees Tripoli as Las Vegas. He introduced us to many popular bands, many popular artists, many popular rappers, and many many many wired thing.

Being “Crazy” is to screaaaaaaaaaaaaam loud, with Khaled Wadha in the wedding of our brother Jalal AlJamal. It was the first full Islamic wedding”, I've ever went to. The best part of it, when we took Jalal to the entrance of the hall, and we kicked him. ( AlJamal family has #2 in their Sejel of Al Kobba )


Being “Crazy” is to have passion, passion for photography, where no one else can takes you except Natheer, we started 4 years ago with our 2Mp cell phone's camera. Today, after having DSLR cameras, we’re everywhere. Our photos are everywhere about everything in Lebanon. The craziest moment, when we were discovering the “long exposure” photography near Rashid Karami Faire, we spent hours taking a 15” photos.

            In the end, after all of this, I’m proud of being “Crazy”. Doing all what I do, saying what i say, having “Craziest” friends just like me. What about you? when was the latest time you were “Crazy”?
