Remember when you were an innocent little kid and you couldn’t wait till you grow up and figure out everything about this big world; well, my friend, you got to admit you were just a little fool.
While being an adult can be fun sometimes, there are other parts that are not so much fun; so here are 5 morbid facts you realize in your twenties:
Stress never ends:
Remember these high school days when teachers lied in your face claiming if you study hard and ease your thanwaya 3ama exams, you would feel relaxed for the rest of your life? LIES!! Every stage of your life has its own ups and downs; there is absolutely no truth in putting your all in just one thing to be lazy for eternity. Enjoy everything you do with its stress and reward.
Doing what you love can also be stressful:
I think by the time you make it halfway to your twenties, you realize that nothing comes ease, specially the things your passionate about it. They told us if you chose a profession you liked, you wouldn’t have to work a day in your life. I totally disagree, if you want to be good at something, if you want to over achieve, you will have to work hard, learn and develop your skills.
Dentists Appointments are still scary:
I thought my fear of doctors will lessen by age, it turns out, the phobia on grows in you. Doctors are forever scary, some are cute tho..
Budgeting is unfathomable:
I believe all our parents told us at some point that when we started earning money, we would be wiser on spending, that we would value money more. However, budgeting seems like a mystery to me! Since, I’ve started making my own money, it seems like I always find some nonsense to waste my money on, although I have lots of financial problems that I should put into consideration.
We often go through situation and circumstances that push us to only one option: letting go. Sometimes, letting go is the best option for you. You will have to let go of people and things even if you don’t want to. It is hard, it is painful, but it is an important part of maturing.

According to the Saudi Authority for Industrial Cities and Technical Zones (MODON), the number of Saudi women taking part in the industrial cities it oversees has seen a significant increase by around120 percent, bringing the total number of female workers 17,000 by the end of March this year.
Khalid Al-Salem, director general of MODON, said that the authority “has come a long way” and still aims at encouraging the female participation in the industrial sector.
“These oases host clean industries such as medical and food industries, rubber and high-tech industries, as well as prefabricated factories supporting women entrepreneurs and small and medium enterprises,” he said.
He said: “MODON seeks to support the productivity of women by providing an optimal environment for their work. Therefore, it signed a memorandum of understanding with a building development company to implement nursery and kindergarten programs in industrial cities and oases under the Ministry of Education’s guidance.” He added.
This strategy of activating the role of women in industrial development goes along with the Saudi Vision of 2020 that aim at enhancing women’s role in the Kingdom’s economy.
