On the road

Well this is new… Here’s what is: I now work as an Architect. I am seeking things, new things. Read the rest of this entry

This is our farewell

I sent this to the little group of coworkers/friends I made in my first job on my last day there. I’ll just leave this here to come back to it later. Read the rest of this entry

Jadal concert tomorrow!

Tomorrow’s Jadal’s live concert! Yay or Nay?
I’m pretty excited to be honest; I’ve never been to a live concert before. They’re just not my thing, but I agreed to join my friends on this one as I felt I needed the change and I didn’t mind the change to be this. Read the rest of this entry


This part of my life is different. It feels like nothing I’ve been through before. I can’t tell if it’s a good or a bad feeling, but there’s a possibility it can be neither. Yes, that’s how it feels like, it’s neither good or bad, yet. It’s like the build up taking time before the occurrence of something big, could be a blessing or an explosion I don’t know. I’m giving it time so I can see it better when it evolves into a defined and framed being whom I can interact with.

I placed myself in a spot that’s not of my wanting. But it was the right decision, and that decision was needed to be made. It might set me off a different path from anything that I had planned, close to none of what I had planned since my plans weren’t working. My plans weren’t that clear and I wasn’t very confident about them either. So I let myself go with the flow, for once, as the resistance wasn’t getting me anywhere.

Modello Architects:
There is also another beginning in the making, something returning from the past but taking on a new form. This one has more of my “wanting” and it makes me feel positive and excited, it’s the creation of something which has the potential of becoming big on the long run. It’s one of those things which unload a ton of responsibility and seriousness whenever it’s the dominant thought in your head. I’m betting on it, on us to be precise. I hope it gets farther than we foresee.

Introvertial spotlight

I stumbled upon this Huffington Post‘s post (heh) while scrolling my facebook timeline. While its title says 23 signs you’re “secretly” an introvert, I don’t think me being an introvert is a secret at all. I do consider myself an introvert, I’m proud of it and more importantly I love it. Read the rest of this entry

In the forest where none may pass but you…

In the forest where none may pass but you, you’ve taken all the available detours trying to get around it instead of going through. And every time you lock onto a path and go forward, the vines grow behind you and block your way back. You’ve been circling around that forest for a long long time that both of you grew, but not in the same way. The forest grew thicker, you grew weaker. The forest grew higher, your back bent low. The forest twirled with life, while your soul sank deeper…

Okay, so this is me here doing a report on…ummm…myself?

You know when you’re playing a time trial in a racing game and you pass by checkpoints then your time get extended and you get a shot at getting to the one after and so on? That’s one thing.

You also know when you’re playing adventure games or side-scrollers (like Mario) and then you pass by a certain point where you can respawn at after -God forbid- YOU DIE MISERABLY LIKE A N3WB13? Read the rest of this entry

Things I’ve managed to do today instead of writing

I think I should write one of my own “Things I’ve managed to do instead of writing”

Sincerely, Salma

I should be writing, I really should; I have this idea and I’ve planned it out and even thought of characters and wrote a one page summery. I SHOULD BE WRITING. But I am not, and it’s amazing what I manage to come up with to procrastinate.

Just so you’d have an idea, these are some of the things that I thought “I have to get over with first and then I’ll really get down to writing” during today, Friday, the weekend, when it’s usually the only chance I can get a big chunk of pages done.

–        Reading another chapter, then another, then another… of Paper Towns.

–        Watching a cooking show on TV.

–        Watching an entire season of The Office.

–        Eating chocolate.

–        Googling stuff written in German on the back of the chocolate wrapping because it tasted funny.

–        Turns out chocolate IS expired.

–       …

If my blog was one of those big corporates. These would be my job titles.

Why you ask? Because that’s what I’ve been doing lately. I’ve done it before for quite sometime and as I look now, it doesn’t seem I managed to fully recover. Read the rest of this entry
