I’m 26 and I’m still here. I’m still not sure where I’m going next, and I’m still not sure where I will be for my next birthday. I’m not sure about anything anymore. Here’s to the waiting, uncertainty, and lifelong dreams…

  1. According to my experience, your words are typical symptoms of someone either about to graduate, or about to get married ;)

  2. Happy Birthday to you!
    Having son your same age, I’d suggest you do what he did to celebrate- go to a nice Pacific Island, soak some sun and meet a completely different set of people and immerse yourself in everything for a few days- changes perspectives these types of trips…

  3. Happy birthday. Hope you’ll have a great day. Wishing you all the best – and hopeing those dreams of yours will come true.

  4. I’m 48 and I’m out. I know where I was before but don’t have the slightest idea as to why I was there in the first place. I don’t know where I’m headed in this great country of ours we call Saudi and nothing seems to matter or is clear anymore .

  5. Happy Birthday Ahmad and many happy returns, uncertainty is the norm and knowing is the exception, I’d say you are doing well despite the uncertainty…

  6. Happy Birthday, Ahmad. I love your blog, which I’ve been dipping into off and on for quite a while. I wish I’d known about it when I was researching my novel, The Burning Veil, just out. I can’t remember 26 very well–one child, living in Beirut–My very best wishes.
