Ive been very busy this past week, with all my school work and interests that i had no time whatsoever to blog, and to top it all, ive been suffering from Insomnia. been awake for around 5 days now, only managed to sleep a few hours yesterday after a tiring school picnic and outing afterwards.

For those who dont know, Insomnia is the inability to sleep for a reasonable period of time, or at all. There are different types of Insomnia, caused by different or no reasons. Some of the common causes of Insomnia are pain, fear, paranoia or stimulants.

For those of you who never experienced Insomnia, consider yourselves very fucking lucky.

Another day

A construction site in Qusais

A clock on my wall.

Another day passes, as usual, faster than the one before it, in this endless acceleration towards oblivion.
An EXTREMELY uneventful day.. Holiday from school, caught up on blogs n websites, played a bit of counter strike. watched 2 movies, slept.
Have some plans for tommorow tho, going out with friends, should be fun.

Behind the mask

For those who dont know, My header image, is the jabal hafeet mountain road in Al ain, considered "the greatest driving road in the world".

Back to the main topic, me.

Abdul-Razak , born in 1990 to Syrian/Romanian parents, life was nothing but a myriad of randomness. i spent the first 7 years of my life, travelling between Syria, Romania and Egypt until finally settling in The united arab emirates in 1997, which i could call home for the past 10 years.

I found Dubai to be a new world, my young self stared in awe at the then modest yet astoundingly clean, developed and 'homely' place. The ride from the airport to my new home, on the smooth roads that were an unknown luxury to me, having lived in less developed countries like Syria and Egypt, was a ride, that i would never forget.

As i grew up, so did Dubai, from a small clean city, to a metropolis, the would be business capital of the middle east. Corporations from around the world, eyed Dubai with interest, could this be the business capital of the future?, slowly, they started setting headquarters in Dubai, leading their operations in the middle east. Then came tourism, who wouldve thought, a tiny fishing city/pearl diving city on the coast of a distant sea, would rise to such fame, already a favoured destination among tourists, it continues to grow, with projects like The palm, and The World attracting the attention of millions.

And so, theres Dubai, and theres me, and heres what we've both become. hope i didnt bore u with my history lesson ^_^.

from now on , call me Arso.

Caffeine in excess
