Yoga

Posted in about the blog, Me, Uncategorized with tags , , on 31/05/2012 by arabrhizome

Today was my second yoga class and it went wonderfully. I really like the group of people there. They all seem really nice and really chilled out. I had a nice conversation with one of them about the nature of greed and whether it was constructed or part of a natural tendency after the class. This week was a lot more demanding than last week, but also a lot more rewarding. I now know the sun salutation and can do it on my own. I will try to make it a daily routine, as it is a great way to stretch and get the blood flowing.

People seemed to really enjoy the piece that was published yesterday. I hope you enjoyed it too. I am really proud of it and think that we made some important connections. I am still getting messages about it and people are sharing it on social media. It’s a nice feeling to have your work appreciated and passed on. I’ve also really enjoyed working on it and think that this might actually be where I should focus once my thesis is done. I would love to be a freelance writer, eventually maybe getting a column (I know it’s premature but I can dream can’t I damn it!).

Anyway, that’s basically all I have to say right now. I’m very relaxed and very happy. I am going to see some friends tomorrow. I’m looking forward to that as I really like them. I will need to get some work done as well. I’m still catching up but will hopefully be done on time. I hope you’re all doing well. I will now go get ready for bed and have a nice long sleep. As always, stay safe everyone. Live long and prosper.

Read The Article

So the article I co-wrote about the pogrom in tel aviv last week has been published by CeaseFire Magazine. Here is the link to it. Please read it and if you like it share it. I’m really proud of that piece. It did take some work but the final product is worth it. I’ve had a lot of positive feedback from people about it. Please feel free to add a comment here about it or on the article itself. I spent a good portion of my day publicising it. Anyway, I need to go eat a little bit and then get ready to sleep. Stay safe everyone. Live long and prosper.

Being Published

I know I promised a return to my D&D posts today. However, it’s going to have to wait another week. I have no time to write it up. I’m sorry if you were looking forward to it (who am I kidding, no one was). In lieu of that I have some news, the piece I co-wrote about the pogrom of African in tel aviv is going to be published tomorrow by Cease Fire Magazine. I’ll link to it on here when it is. I’m really proud of it, I hope you all find it interesting. I am very attracted to the idea of writing more pieces like that. It would be a great job. Anyway, I need to get ready for bed now. As always, stay safe everyone. Live long and prosper.

So Tired

I’m very tired today. I spent the day feeling tired. I didn’t do much. Just waited for the day to pass and for bedtime to come. I was so lethargic throughout the day. I didn’t even watch my shows, which is saying something. I don’t know why. I will hopefully be able to do more tomorrow. I hope to be very productive in the coming weeks. I need to be. I can’t have days like today anymore. Anyway, I’m going to go get ready for bed. I also have to do some shopping tomorrow. I hope you’re all okay. As always, stay safe everyone. Live long and prosper.

Still Waiting

So I’m still waiting to hear back about that piece. We’re probably going to hear tomorrow. I really hope it gets published. I will keep you all updated. As I said before if it doesn’t get published I’ll just publish it on this blog and my friend will publish it on his. But it would be great if it got some mainstream exposure. It’s a really good piece, if I may say so myself. Anyway, I must go and get ready for bed because it’s late and I am tired. So as always, stay safe everyone. Live long and prosper.

Waiting To Know

So I spent today with my friend who came up to Nottingham to perform. I always enjoy hanging out with her. She’s a wonderful human being and I love her very much. However, the whole day involved me being very anxious about the piece a friend and I co-wrote. We’ve sent it out and are waiting to hear about whether it’s going to be published or not. If it doesn’t I will publish it on here and my friend will publish it on his blog. However, we really hope it will be published in a mainstream publication. I’m really proud of the piece. Now it’s just about waiting and hoping. Anyway, stay safe everyone. Live long and prosper.
