Is a Gemini associated syndrome that has recently been drumming me relentlessly, not that I wasn’t a Gemini before-coz I’ve always been one- yet little Ms. ridiculously irrelevant decided to start acting up and for a reason I chose not to have power over it. I used to know how to control my mood swings, and innate dithering but currently am more into the spontaneous side of myself. Seriously, I found out that there are things that I need to know about myself, fa no way I can figure them out, unless am totally myself!!
Last night I was torn between watching tv, reading a nice book that I’ve started a few days ago, and writing an Arabic post in a series that I committed myself to write ( one of the new year’s resolutions).
Nerro would have scolded herself muttering things about amusement and prioritization, yet Rateeba made up her mind and ended up doing the 3 things simultaneously while Ensaf stood in the middle of the room lolling at what Rateeba is doing and wondering if this would have been done better a la Nerro!!
Side Note: I have segregated the Arabic posts from the English oneس, and gathered the “what me thinks is” readable material here.
Since it is the book fair hype and stuff I have a lot of reading to do, I even contemplated a reading vacation, nevertheless am a relatively new hire, and still have 3 months to be allowed some rest. Am currently reading Shay Aswad by Rabee3 Gaber a Lebanese writer that I fall in love with his style (in this novel, as I haven’t read any other thing for him), and I highly recommend. Here is a quote from the novel:
“يزعم أن الحياة لا قيمة لها (أولاً لأنها زائلة و ثانياً لأنها سلسلة لا متناهية من الرغبات فالتحققات فالخيبات فالرغبات، و ثالثاً لأنها غير مبررة – و هو اجتماع أولاً و ثانياً) لكنه يظل يتعلق بها و يكره أن يضجر و يود لو كان كذا أو كذا رغم أنه يعرف تفاهة هذا و سخافته، في النهاية”
