Happy Friday everyone!  I’ll be bringing you the most interesting links on the Internet for your own pleasure this week. Unfortunately, Tago wasn’t able to do the Groove this week because of her exams.

Anyway, a clear message to all of you: try being sarcastic about spending the weekend at home; it might help I guess *hears gunshots*. I take it back!  So here are some really cool links to check out POST-curfew:

  • It might not be late to save a college freshman’s lifetime of unemployment misery through this.
  • “Suddenly I had to start wearing shirts without holes in them to big meetings where I needed to convince people I was going to do things I might very well be impossible”… a story of success!
  • What does Disney have for us the rest of the year and the upcoming years? See for yourself here!
  • This can be your next movies-to-watch list during our lonely curfew nights.
  • On marriage and love, a story from another side of the marriage line.
  • Coldplay might actually make you a Hunger Games movie fan with this song.
  • Finally, this is not even close to what it was like in WWII, but we shouldn’t stop trying.

Mariem El Tagoury

I am a graduate from German University Cairo. Reading novels is my passion and writing is my release. My guilty pleasures include fashion & playing around with my make-up kit. A couple of years back when I was introduced to the online world, back in 2007; I was quite surprised that in spite of the presence of thousands of young Egyptians who follow the online sphere daily, there wasn’t one site that represented us or our lifestyle. [Later we’d come to see the rise of the political, religion, social-elite, and foodie websites, but still the voice of the average Cairene youth was missing.] I was glad to find out that I wasn’t the only one who had the feeling of the outsider on the internet, that’s why I decided to gather a team to fill a gap & finally find our place online and give Cairo’s youth a real voice that reflects its true culture. I hope you find our site interesting with a new view of life. Besides running the magazine & editing, I write the “Sans Sugarcoating” column, pardon my french, and a couple of other stuff around here! If you want to contact me, my email is mariem.eltagoury@cairocontra.com; you can also use our contact form or email directly to admin@cairocontra.com
