Hopeful Smile

Oh how I miss blogging!

A lot has been going on lately, unfortunately that means more secrets to hide from you. I feel like writing the story of my life but that's too early I guess. Time would shape my perspective and prove me either right or wrong. That's why the story shall wait as well as proceed. Since you're here I'll share bits and pieces of this story.

Today I received my MBA (General Management) degree from the States, finally! I've been waiting since April. I got an A for my thesis and a GPA of 3.67 *bows for applause*

Earlier, I shared with you that I applied for a double major but things did not work. Months passed, while I was in the process of writing my thesis, I was informed that my wish to do double major was answered and the dean approved it. Had to do extra courses and take a course from EMBA program. All went great -al hamdulillah- and here I am in the process of writing my second thesis.

The second specialization is in HR and my thesis is about Blogging and the use of Intranet Blogs in organizations. That's why I've been reading tens of blogs and online publishing about Blogs. I don't have hard copy of references (books or journals). The topic is new and there are books but most of them study blogs as a phenomena in marketing, PR, and organizational image. Thanks to David, who helped me over a year back with finding references for my Organizational Communication course when I made a presentation about the Revolution of Blogs in OC. I was really fascinated by the topic and that's why I had to adopt it for HR and spend extra effort to achieve what I have in mind regarding the topic.

:)

That's all for now
Wish me luck

أظن انني استغللت المدونات ابشع استغلال بعملي لمجموعة مدونات بعنوان ملاجئ الموت
بعد ان عجزت كل المنظمات ان تتقدم خطوة واحدة في مجال حقوق الانسان في العراق والجرائم التي حدثت فيه
وهي مجموعة في هذه المدونة

Thank you all for your sweet words :)

الأخ سحاب
اهلا بك في مدونتي, اكرر ما تفضلت به اختي زهرة لان الوعي العام و توعية المجتمع تتطلب اهتمام الجميع

في اول ايام الاحتلال كان عدد المدونين العراقين ينعد على الكف الواحدة الا انهم استطاعوا ان يلفتوا اهتمام الناس في العالم و خاصة امريكا على ما يحدث من جرائم داخل العراق و كان لهم اثر كبير في تغيير الاعلام و اصبحوا محط اهتمام الصحف و قنوات الاخبار

وفقك الله لكل خير

First of all I want to send my congratulations on receiving your MBA.

Second, I wish you all the best in your research and please let me know if you need any help or assistance. I will be more than happy to help.

I saw many familiar faces commenting and I am glad to be part of the group gathering and sharing their good wishes and honest feelings with you. For that reason, please allow me to tell Sahab something through your blog "brother, you didn't ruin anything. You proved that in Iraq there are still honest, courageous and noble people who never fear and always tell the truth. I know it is difficult, but don't you ever give up, never, because me and many others are supporting you 100%"

Attawie, my best wishes again, and from my heart I wish you happiness and forever success.

Mixmax,
Thanks a lot for your wishes.

Iraqi Spirit,
Actually there are a lot of theses written about blogs but most of them are about Marketing and Public Relation issues. Hopefully I'll write something good.

I just checked that comment on Nawfal's blog.

Dear friends and bloggers,
As for my study I'm working on a questionnaire and planning to share with you to fill soon inshalla.
thanks for your support.
