On September



March wasn’t much of a month as life was on halt, temporarily. Strike by strike, April passed, and the world went on, but rebirth was still on pause.

Then came May, which I knew was going to be one of the most important months in my life, on several levels. I stopped striking away at the calendar sometime in mid May. The first half of it was painfully slow, but I had no idea how the rest of
it managed to come to an end. But it did… and there we were at June. May changed everything; I graduated from university and Musa came back to Jordan. Life was finally back on track.

Next came June, and I still could not grasp that the wait had been done for a while and that May has come and gone. It tickled my heart to see the future standing open, and the pages all unlocked. Alas, there was finally more space to write, live, and dream. June was one of the best times in my life; satisfying, comforting, and “yayeah”, but regardless of all the chocolate bar makers’ attempts at marketing their chocolates with those three essential ingredients for happiness, they have yet to discover the secret that makes a moment turn perfect.

I had discovered mine a while back; a lot of red Sharpies :)

July was… determinative. To say the least. It had a lot of hardrooted changes; I started working at Syntax and that was a huge change from college life. I was amused at how quickly it passed. Ghamed 3ein… fate7 3ein…  … and along the way, people got mad because I did not yet know how to fit everyone into this different, unfamiliar routine while keeping everyone happy. I think some of my friends are still mad, and that’s why August was sort of weird.

Now September has come to an end, and it had some of the most amazing times ever. Life at this point might as well be perfect, with the previous 7 months accumulating to give way to what will hopefully be a wonderful October. For now though, here’s September:
