Not much going on at the moment. Kind of still in limbo, waiting for things to happen, trying to keep myself entertained and content in the meantime. At the same time, I don’t really know what I’m waiting for exactly. Every day it’s just reading and writing, consuming media and ideas and content. Also spiritual rejuvenation, visiting the mosque, going to classes, reading the Qur’an, etc. Its nothing to complain about, in fact, its something to be really happy about, where I am right now, but in the context of the way this world functions, I can see why one could easily become irritable and annoyed at the perceived stagnancy I am currently experiencing. This is life though is it not? Its like Travis Bickle from Paul Shrader’s Taxi Driver said, and I’m paraphrasing, “The days are all the same. They go on and on and on, and then something happens.” and thats the norm. I wake up, I work, I write, I read, I eat, I see a friend, I go to the gym, I help my parents, I take a walk, I shoot some photos, I write some more, I watch a movie, I read, I sleep. Where it is leading me, I couldn’t tell you, but the places I’ve been to already came about by a similar accord.
