Well - my appologies for the long silence - but i've been so busy with loads of shitty deadlines and on top of it all i've reached adeadlock within myself - i really dunno' what i want from life anymore!
It's just that i keep getting asked from potential employers/corporates whether i'd like to work with them - and then i go 'no' cos i'm not done with uni yet. Hoever, i do wanna' work with 'em - cos i like the challenge & a competitive yet dynamic environment that corporates here in MultiCultural Bahrain has to offer. Except i'm getting offers from right across the Middle East to South Asia & Asia Pacific - but i can't start on anything 'cos im not done with my graduation yet!!!!
Its so frustrating - and to top it all off - i've gotta' deal with the following sad moments in bahrain's blogging scene & life these days:
- SBG has gone a holiday - and i don't get to ready any more fugly posts!
-Flipping the Coin - Eunice Del Rosario's blog has gone all private, she's made it password protected - hell - i miss commenting over there.
- Mahmood is coping with a family crisis - u feel the stress in his posts due to that - gets you down a bit (his dad is in the hospital)
- The Bahrain Blogger's meet up has shrunk in size - last week Scorpio, Tariq and myself me up at the country club in Saar, Chanad couldn't make it and Shiv who was supposed to be there wasn't - But overall - Where in the world is Haitham Sabbah - the guy who kick-started the blogger meetups in Bahrain back in November last year. Have ppl lost interest so soon! And BahrainBlogs.com - needs a rapid makeover and more committment from everyone involved - to my knowledge it's bagged a few awards so far and been mentioned in a few local dailies.
I went for the Bahrain Heritage festival last night - it was awesome i think - a great cultural experience for me - but 2 observations at the festival pissed me off. One was the amount of visible pollution around the Bahrain National Museum - it was pathetic - I don't understand how organizers could tolerate all the plastic cups, plates and 'food' - yes i mean food! - floating in the water surrounding the main festival entrance! And they weren't doing anything to pick up the rubbish - instead - they allowed the garbage to gather together in the water and keep floating about! Secondly, i stayed around the festival till the lights went out to signal that the festival had come to an end for the day, and will continue tomorrow, well, fine i walked out with a friend into the car park and there we see this huge 'fight' going on between 2 groups of high school students - i personally think that's a bad image for the festival as a whole - where was the event's security? No Organizers even at hand to halt the scuffle! That was just so sad!
I think i'm going thru a whole re-discovering myself 'crisis' - probably cos i'm just so exhausted with overworking myself and uni stuff or maybe i just need to make time to get out more from coffee and poetry sessions or clubbing - or maybe i need to spend more time with myself and try and start my love for wrting again - loack of inspiration - i think - and the whole formula of the girl-guy dating scene here in Bahrain is very wierd. Very! I know ppl who chase after gurls and vice versa, bug them and in the end they know the gurl won't talk to them or whatever - so shit!
Maybe we all need more loving in our lives!
