Finally midterm week is over, we’ve had four Arabic tests this week: fosHa, listening, speaking, and ‘amiyya. They all went pretty well which is nice, but I now just want to crash. The fact of not having slept well lately is really wearing and it makes me just not want to do anything except lie in bed. I’ve also watched all the movies I have so I probably need to go get some new ones.
The plan is to get tattoos tomorrow, but since my excellent idea was kiboshed (sp?) I now don’t know what I want. I might do the chamsa/hand of fatima though, but I’m thinking really small and right on the wrist. The other thoughts were verses from a poem or from Alf Laila wa Laila (A Thousand and One Nights) … there’s a poetry verse in the first story that’s kind of cool. It’s hard to find something on command, and I haven’t found anything that really resonates so I don’t think I’ll get a tattoo of any of those. In any case, we’ll see if it actually happens or not, we tend to be quite disorganized vis. planning, etc.
This post is a bit of a ramble and a bit depressing, but I figured it had been awhile so it’s about time. Insha’allah I’ll get some sleep and maybe be able to post about happier subjects in the near future, ya’anee mustaqbal.
