THE NEW NORMAL
things are not exactly the same. but we adapt. and we adjust.
As I slowly get back with regular programming, months after being offline and taking my break, I am still trying my best to adjust to the new normal. Wearing a mask every single time I go out, which is pretty rare because till now, as we all know, the pandemic is still here and cases are not exactly going down. Europe is currently going on their second lockdown and tensions in the US elections isn’t making things easier either for people who are affected by the pandemic. Dubai, on the other hand is slowly getting back to “normal” – meaning it is back in business and open for tourism which actually baffles me because to be honest, I am, like many other residents out here are scared that we will also get hit with a second lockdown if we are not careful. The city is doing its best of course to make sure everyone is well informed and doing their part in protecting themselves but you can never be too sure.
I am for the most part keeping myself busy. And getting the website back online does help a lot. My decision to rework the entire format actually inspires me more now than ever before. A little less of me, but more of my voice and those of others. Things that matter more.
My main instagram profile is yet to get back on track, which I plan to in the next couple of weeks once I do get around to shooting some new content – I have a huge backlog and my clients are already on standby.
For now, I am happy to say that I am looking forward to sharing new things out here like people who inspire me, a little culture and history, some thought-provoking discussions and probably share a few articles that I wrote back in the day. It may be useful for some, entertaining too, but however you absorb it, I hope you appreciate it.
