I am wondering if I want too much out of life or that I am just not organized enough to do everything I want to do. I am here in Alexandria to crack the Arabic language. I see Arabic as a code. And once you learn the alphabet you decipher it bit by bit. It has been a long road, I can tell you and I got still some way to go. My aim is to return to the UK speaking (Fus-ha) fluently. That is an ambitious goal. Is it too ambitious? Life is about a lot more than learning Arabic and I try the make good use of my time. I want to keep up with my writing and I want to stay active. I used to cycle a lot in London and do miss it. So I want to join a gym and practice yoga which I can do at home. Until last week I practiced yoga at least four times a week. I haven’t done anything for the last 10 days and have yet to join the gym. I also work from home for two London based companies, which takes an average of 15 hours a week of my time. Although I am the queen of Egypt I don’t have a housekeeper so I shop, clean and do the laundry. And then there are the social and cultural activities. I am in a foreign country after all and have to take excursions to other exotic places and mingle with my fellow and sister students, who are good people. Now, I could have a strict schedule in which my activities and duties are set out by the minute. But what is the fun in that. I am split between my head strong little self –it has been done before so I can do it too- and my more relaxed/ lazier/ less confident self who has to admit she is not wonder woman and should just enjoy the ride. Can’t I be wonder woman enjoying the ride?
