Eid !

Eid holidays finally got over yesterday. Eid is our, Muslim, version of Christmas or Hanukkah. It was good to take 10 days off work. I didn't do anything particularly interesting, went for a picnic, played cards with a couple of friends, played a lot of video games, spent time at the gym again & spent time with my younger brother who came back from college for the holidays. We usually get money for Eid from our family friends and parents, but since I have become an earning member of the family I had to pay out as much as I got. It was all good though, I remember how much fun it used to be when I would get money as a kid. Near the end of eid everyone always got together and compared how much money they got. I saw the news and was very disturbed to see that Eid in Sudan, Iraq & Afghanistan would be a very somber affair. The Bush administration now wants to blame the government in Iraq for its failings in that country. What the heck ??? You put them in power and then blame them when they don't have any real power. Accountability without power sucks, I know what it does to leaders. The country is already headed towards civil war and finger pointing won't help.
In lighter news, I have decided to start doing some art. I used to be pretty good at it as a kid but I haven't done anything since freshman year in college. Sometimes I think architecture would have been a fun field to be in. But then again I think that I wouldn't have been able to get through those long reviews and sleep while working on a model. Some of those archi's were walking zombies before their review week. I plan to go to the gym as soon as I get back home today. Hopefully I will be able to get into better shape before the trip to India in 25 days.
Also to everyone who stuck around thanks(yin, uzair, kiat & others that will remain nameless) I plan to be a bit more punctual in my postings from now on.
