Money, Money Money

I’m just about to leave work. Its Saturday tomorrow and I am working from 7 in the morning till 10pm and again on Sunday. The joys of events management and the not so much -joys of bags under my eyes, stress lines, clinical exhaustion and an undying desire to OD on Prozac.

Update....

We started our meeting shortly after 7pm and firstly introduced ourselves (the founders) and talked briefly about why we wanted to embark on this journey. We asked all of our attendees to introduce themselves too. With all the formalities out of the way, the vision, in terms of strategy was discussed. We shared with our guests our passion for why we felt we should be giving voices to pockets of marginalised communities across the globe, across creeds, across races, and across religions.

No balance in the world!

I am ill today. I have caught the head munching, nose clogging, throat scraping cold bug and it's now having a rave in my body. Mother Nature was cruel to me on Friday as I made my way home from work, soaked to the bone in rain water infused with acid from the London fumes.

And we complain that we are poor...

I look at the balance in my account and moan and groan and join the poor student brigade even though i am fully employes. I complain about Lodnon being expensive but completely look past the three pairs of shoes and bolero jacket i baught this month without a cause. I guess we all, well, most of us, have this way of living. We are never satisfied. its the ienevitability of our cycles of life.

Today

Now, I have had the privilege to a degree and an MA and lead the last 23 years in quite a cosy manner. I am now a lover of all things Japanese in the western mainstream, love skinny jeans and voluminous dresses, read books about the trials and tribulations of the yummy mummy or the afghani woman’s pain, watch US TV, moan about the British government yet love my cafe breakfasts and earl grey and have a passion for asparagus and ice-cream.

Starfish

A traveler was walking along a beach when he saw a woman scooping up starfish off the sand and tossing them into the waves. Curious, he asked her what she was doing.

Saima

I spent the weekend at my brother's place. This equates to my sister-in-laws smothering via food and banter peppered with her bouts of OCD and complaints of pregnancy (she is 8.5 months pregnant). It also consisted of sleeping in my ten year old niece's bedroom and having to be the biggest, correction, second biggest fan of Hanna Montana (a US kids programme) and Power Rangers (need I say more) for my 6 year old nephew Abid.

Update!

Hey all, just a quick update of the strategic decisions of the Restless Beings. It has been decided that we were to go for a not-for-profit status, and Restless Beings has now been registered with Companies House England and Wales. I am happy to announce that they were thrilled with our proposal and we were granted this status as of immeadiate effect.

A restless thought by Mushroom

So who are the restless beings? We are strong minded individuals intent on giving a voice to those unheard in the world that we live. We are still in our early stages and currently the team consists of two; Mushroom, a quirky 'save-the-world' self proclaimed hippie events organiser and Mabrur, a logical 'easily-exciteable' philanthropic media accounts manager.
