5:30am

It's 5:30am when I'm posting this. Early morning is so interesting. When you get up, it almost seems like time is at a standstill. It's peaceful (i.e. everyone else is asleep). Hey, I just heard the newspaper guy throw the Toronto Star at our door. Kind of freaked me out for a bit. Until I realized what it was. Can't wait for autumn to hit, though I can definitely wait for school. I start Monday inshaAllah. Sometimes it seems like a fruitless endeavour, school. School doesn't impart vision or passion for a specific thing, at least not in me. School is just there, for no particular reason besides draining the money/fun/joy/all other good things out of life. So what do I want to do with my life? I think I'd like to be a starving artist. Wait, wait, hold that thought. A fed artist. Okay, maybe not an artist per se. More like a fed person doing something cool. These are my 5:30 am philosophizing rants. All you sleeping people should get up.

Yes, I am an earlier riser myself...but only because my job makes me wake up. I leave for work about 5:45 a.m. Don't start talking about autumn. I already am starting to see trees turn yellow and condensation on my car windshield in the morning. Yes, it is beautiful...but it means winter is on it's way.

I've already started school. And it's not as horrible as I imagined. It's scary as heck, but not horrible.

Hey Asmaa. What a coincidence, I was also up at that time today, contemplating many issues such as what to put in my belly.

Food is on my mind. I need Ramadan to set me straight. Oh did you know that yesterday was the first time I tried fresh dates? They're so delicous. You peel them first then the sweetness oozes into your mouth.. yum.

I love school. :D And I can't wait! haha Suckaaaaa! But yo, did the chocolate I gave you and your friend contain gelatin? My bad. When I gave it to you I didn't pay attention to that. :S Sorry.

Asmaa said...

Gabriel, the chocolate you were handing out had gelatin in it?! Ahhhhrgghh! It's not your fault though, I should have checked :S
