life grammar 101..


Past Progressive - Use:

1) actions were in progress at special time in the past
example from life: They were playing the field actively in their youth..


2) two actions were happening at the same time (the actions do not influence each other)
example from life: He was having his coffee, while she was lost in thoughts of his dark past..



3) repeated actions irritating the speaker (with always, constantly, forever)
example from life: She was always being reminded of her experience(s)..


and keep in mind that Simple Past tense just doesnt exist in life grammar!


end of lesson 1..


we all think we wanna know, we really dont. coz it will haunt us from time to time.. just let bygones be bygones..

adoosh: i meant in the sense that when a 'past' exists, its never simple. 7atta law it was the most innocent relationship. ppl always think of their partner's past sometime.

I write for a living but I never was good explaining or understanding the rules of grammar... I just know what is correct and what is not.

That said, I respond to your post.... "uh...I don't get it." ;-) (I'm too tired this morning to think.)

Ok, in this sense: ma fhemtesh eshi :sc:

well I just loved this post put it as one of the best ever written posts on ur blog belive me am a real fan of ur blog so I can judge when its one of the best :).

I want to add one thing the problem is not in ur past actually its ur present ...ur present is the person whom u have chosen to tell about ur past..ur present is how u react in certain sitiuations that would make anyone close enough refer to your past in order to analyze and understand you...ur present is how u make ur past affect ur personal judgement on the people who are ('7a6ain 7omor ta7t el are law sama7tee)not were around u.... finally ur present is the self defense mechanism u have developed from from ur past to keep a person away from you.

u know thats kind of funny I have heard it yesterday on the radio channel I think UAE english radio they were sayin a quote by someone about ur experiences in life and it states that any experience u face will certainly help u in growing up but its up to u to decide whether to grow up after it or consider it an obstacle not to grow up.
sorry for hell writing to much but thats life grammer 201(ebte3rafee grammer mo 7ayalah bedo share7 :P).

tiger: awalan nimer wein ra7 ur blog?

taniyan thanks a lot, i dint know i had hardcore fans of my blog, this or the previous one :) good to know. thanks..

talitan, present is never a problem, past doesnt affect it only if ONE LETS IT i reckon. fi nas bitdalla 3aysheh bil madi, and ppl who look back all the time never go forward. and thats a shame, coz what passed has passed. and the present is a gift and the future is what we shape it out to be.. i wish ppl can let go of bad experiences, and only take out lessons from their past, rather than letting history repeat itself..

When you're in love with someone you're very interested to know everything about them, their past included! But that need not alter or interfere with your relationships because you're more interested in the person you know now vs the one they used to be! If someone is not mature enough to recognize this then it's probably best to keep them in the dark ;)

Vendetta said what I wanted to say, the past is past and it is gone.
