Those days are still here =)


It’s surprising how a day can feel so great, no…it’s the greatest day I’ve had in a while would follow some of the worst.
Has it been because of the perfect score my group and I earned, or the documentary footage being done close to how I had it in mind. How in both of these delightful achievements, the power of teamwork and individual effectiveness has emerged, having a certain goal ahead of us and consuming ourselves to reach it.

Hands down…Time’s up


I’m slow, that’s a fact.

Not with understanding, not with talking, not with responses, but with execution, between the decision to do and the doing itself stands lots and lots of foreseeing and prediction, and while doing it’s much slower when deciding to choose which way to go through a single step, lots of foreseeing and predictions again, and it gets slower if I don’t know how the result should look like, same when I’m doing something first-hand without any previous knowledge.

Curious case of curious people


Curious case of curious people

Have you ever been on a ride for a long time to notice someone around you checking you out?
Watching everything you do and everything you make?
Leaning to see which book, newspaper or magazine you’re reading? Read the rest of this entry

30. ثلاثون THIRTY!!


I can say that this blog has been one of the best things that happened to me!
Something I’m really proud of, something that fills me with joy.

It might not affect my life greatly but I have a really good feeling about it.
It’s a good step, it’s comforting, it’s a beginning to something, or many, great things =)

And because I can’t loosen the leash of happiness much, I know I’m not the only one who blogs, and other bloggers can tell me things that may turn me off my blog. It’s possible, but I’ll keep reminding myself of the initial reasons I started with. “I’m not writing FOR anyone”, still all those who read are welcomed =)

I hope I keep posting with the same rate, with better motivation, with more self-satisfying thoughts…

And I hope that the day when I get distracted from the blog never comes…

Venting…
A month of posts have passed…
and there’s still too much to keep in!

Requesting….


I’ve been thinking -as usual- about how I’m silent most of the time around people or during discussions. When I don’t know enough about what’s being discussed, when I’m not sure how my opinion will be received by everyone or just laying back and watching others dealing with each other. I don’t like to be under the spotlight, I don’t like to be focused on or grabbing everyone’s attention alone. Read the rest of this entry

Superpowers…


A week ago, I was asked about the superpower I wish I had. My answer to this question has always been “Teleportation”. Like in the movie “Jumpers”, where the characters in the movie could teleport from one place to another in a blink of an eye with no limits. I always thought I need this ability to be able to shift between different places I want to go. Read the rest of this entry

Pleased


It’s getting harder to accept facts lately, facts mostly concerned with how my life will turn out to be. I’m not one bit certain it’ll be something I’d be ok with. I guess I’ll be thinking that it could’ve turned out better. I’m pretty sure that during the time between now and forward in time, things will happen that will force me into giving in to a kind of life that’s unlike anything I’ve imagined.

I don’t know how exactly I want my life to be. I’ve already foreseen a couple of different scenarios from which I couldn’t pick a favorite. Scenarios concerning different choices of careers, dreams, social circle, places and people. These scenarios either seem too hard to achieve given the current reality, or a worthless pointless life following the herd.

That was how I felt when this week began, but it changed! And how? Only a few compliments from a friend whom I dearly appreciate and seeing something I’ve been working on all week coming close to being finished, seeing partners appreciating it and pleased with what I did.

Thank you all for making my week =)

The Machine


“There’s a time, when the operation of the machine becomes so odious…
Makes you so sick at heart, that you can’t take part, you can’t even passively take part…
And you’ve got to put your bodies upon the gears, upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus and you’ve got to make it stop!
And you’ve got to indicate it to the people who run it, to the people who own it
That unless you’re free
The machine will be prevented from working at all!”
Mario Savio, 1964 Read the rest of this entry

From one “!” & back to “!”


It starts with brainstorming for the building form of my design project
An idea in my head, picturing it!
Can’t turn it into a physical form Read the rest of this entry

Okay-ly Misplaced


It happens sometimes when you’re forced into a spot you don’t want yourself in, the same spot you were avoiding for some time. You didn’t see it coming, and you don’t understand how it happened! And I certainly did not. Read the rest of this entry
