Update on life on Hiatus
Before I post any more snippets of my notes and pictures I thought it appropriate to first give a general update on the status of my life on hiatus. Right now I’m in Kuwait, spending the Eid holidays with my parents and little sisters.
I’m half way into my driving classes (I’ve delayed this for four years out of procrastination), and my test is scheduled for the 27th of this month, my admission test for University is scheduled for the 7th of November, and the TOEFL test for the 24th of November (I’m applying for a part-time MBA at the American University of Sharjah). Motives behind and intentions of this cannot really be articulated at the moment, but it would be safe to say that its part of my life-long self-enrichment research project. Do feel free to insert a snigger here.
Part of my Hiatus plan was to move away from the obligation of making art, to churn out objects in order to feel relevant. The alternative to that, I’ve found, is to only pursue things that I find will add value to my life. Some of which are related to my practice and research, two of which are mentioned above, and the rest are mostly things like getting a drivers license, furnishing my place, and other self indulgent activities. Soon to come is a life map with all the things I feel like doing, whether or not I’ll end up doing them, and whether I will during the time of the Residency is something I don’t know and am not particular about.
