Back to Work

Posted in about the blog, Me, Uncategorized, Work with tags , , , , , on 29/08/2011 by arabrhizome

So I’m properly back to work now. I’ve been writing for two days and it feels good. I’m still writing slowly but at least I’m writing. Last night was great. Going out and getting plastered was a lot of fun. I will be doing that from time to time. I’m looking forward to my first MMA class tomorrow. It’s exciting but also kind of scary. I don’t know if I’m going to be any good at it, but I like this place I’ve found. The main guy seems like a very nice guy and it seems like he knows his stuff. Anyway, I’m tired and I’m going to want to sleep soon. But I just wanted to point out that things are looking up. I feel good about myself and that’s a nice feeling. Stay safe everyone. Love you bye.

So I had that meeting today. I was really not looking forward to it. I was feeling nauseous and had a terrible feeling in my stomach of pure dread and stress. I didn’t want to go because it was going to be bad. It was bad but it wasn’t terrible. I think I was feeling so much worse about because I’m ill. Illness makes everything seem worse. Now though I have no room for mistakes. I need to write and write and write. Basically, I have no time to do anything else. The problem is that I need money to do that. I don’t think I can work and have time to write my thesis in a year. So this means I need to take money from my parents. It sucks but it seems to be necessary. Anyway, I need to go back to work now. Stay safe everyone. Love you bye.

Sick To My Stomach

Posted in about the blog, Me, Uncategorized, Work with tags , , , , , , , , , on 24/08/2011 by arabrhizome

I am feeling sick to my stomach. Not only am I actually ill but I also have a meeting tomorrow. It’s a supervision and I have nothing to show for it. I feel sick to my stomach. I really don’t want to go but I can’t not go. I will probably write an email and explain to them what exactly I’m going through. I feel like I will be able to explain to them what I’m feeling by email a lot better than in person. Hopefully that way they’ll have something to say rather than me having to explain everything in person. Anyway, I’m going to go write it right now and then I’m going to work. I might actually stay up all night and try to get some work done. Stay safe everyone. Love you bye.

Day Eight

I woke up relatively early today. I was happy and thought I would spend a bit of time on twitter in the morning. I got on and realised that there are 40 e-petitions on the UK government’s website demanding the restoration of Capital Punishment. I was stunned by that number. But very quickly twitter restored my faith in humanity as there were three trending topics on the subject: “Capital Punishment”, “Death Penalty”, and “#crimesworthyoftherope”. All three were either mocking the people who called for capital punishment or decrying the practice. There were a few nutters saying it’s a good thing but they were drowned by the sea of people saying that Capital Punishment is a horrible thing, or thinking of silly reasons to hang someone, thus showing how bad the death penalty actually is. In other news, I’m still working. Today involved my rewriting some of the stuff I wrote yesterday but it’s fine I’m adding stuff now. Anyway, I need to go back. I’m kind of on a roll here. So as always, stay safe everyone. Love you Bye.

Day Seven

Things seem to be going alright. I have kept working steadily today and feel like I’m actually making some progress. Hopefully this good run will keep going. I am in a happy mood work wise. I’m feeling slightly lonely though, but that’s understandable, most of my friends are away or very busy. Also, the fact that I’m very busy means that I can’t really hang out with anyone. I wouldn’t be any fun any way, as I’d be feeling guilty and not be able to commit to an evening or afternoon out. Anyway, I’m going to go back to work now, as I’m still awake and quite happy to work. Stay safe everyone. Love you bye.

Day Six

Day six is going pretty well. I was able to get some work done. In fact I’m on a small break now and intend to keep working. I hope this state of affairs keeps going on. It would mean that my work gets back on track very soon. In other news, I’m starting to see some positive effects of my guitar lessons and practice. My understanding of scales and modes has increased tremendously. Also, I’m starting to see an improvement in my speed and technique. Hopefully, if I keep going the way I’m going now, I’ll be able to start improvising with some confidence. I can’t wait for my next lesson this Friday. Anyway, I need to go back to work now. Hope you’re all doing well. Stay safe. Love you bye.

Day Four

Day four has been slightly better than day three and two, however not as good as day one. Still it’s an improvement and that’s a good thing. Hopefully, the rest of the night will be more productive. I woke up quite late and I don’t think that I will go to sleep anytime soon. In the mean time today has been one of the bloodiest days in the Syrian uprising with tanks going into Hama and killing a great number of civilians. There are also news of other massacres in other parts of the country. It’s really appalling. to see this kind of behaviour. I am also very disappointed in so called arab leftists who are nothing but apologists for the Assad regime. The “West” is useless in this situation, as it has been through out the Arab uprisings. Again I have more to say about all this but unfortunately I need to focus on my work. I would only like to say that the brave people of Syria have my full support and solidarity. I hope to visit a democratic Syria in the near future. The dead of the past months will never be forgotten. Stay safe everyone.
