ghir bessyas a moulay!
11:05:23 AM Friday Feb 15, 2008


Hi guys. It's been a while. Grad school is definitely kicking my behind (almost sounds like I'm asking for sympathy!) Heck, I'll take it still; no shame. I looked in the mirror the other day and all I could think was "what the f&*$ are these bags and black circles around my eyes?) But I'm still loving it.

One of the things about grad school, or school in general I presume, is that it pushes you outside of your comfort zone. Some professors push you too far and then fear creeps into your spine, you feel cold and barely keeping above water all the time. I don't know about you guys, but when it happens, I feel very vulnerable. I'm reading the same text, but maybe my imagination is not developed enough for me to understand what's going on. Then you quickly feel helpless, and if you don't run to the TA's office and beg for a mini-lecture, you'll feel/be hopeless.

So this is a long introduction to what I really wanted to present in this log. When I am most vulnerable, I am most sensitive to how other people deal/react with/around me. Over time, I'm bound to reciprocate unless I am aware of my actions 100% of the time. Back home, a lot of people feel vulnerable most of the time and over time they reciprocate bad reactions as well. I notice it when I go home. Some people are constantly on the edge. It won't take much for them to let the demons out.

I read this article this morning, and though I have some reservations about it, I feel that it was pretty well presented. I hope you can give it a read. I think it's pretty topical and very current as far as economic theory is concerned (a lot of work on how social dynamics -positive/negative- impact economic well-being.)

I especially loved this bit:
ضقنا بأنفسنا وبالناس وبالحياة، لذلك تجد في غالب سياراتنا عُصي وهراوات لوقت الحاجة وساعة المنازلة والاختلاف مع الآخ

I remember a while back we talked about how most people in wejda have a metreg in their car:) Made me laugh like a mad man this morning.

Thanks for this amazing article! it comes in a time when I need it. Imbalance is starting to reveal the weird side of me. I shared the article with a colleague and he told me the author of the article Dr. 3aed Alqarni has written a book entitled "La Ta7zan" (Don't Be Sad) and is rated by Forbes as the best selling book in the Arabic world. I would love to get my hands on that book!
