Peddling my Wares
After much thought I have decided not to return to Egypt. This fact has taken some getting used to. When I open my eyes in the morning I expect to see dusty sun-covered minarets, street vendors, and traffic. Instead these days I'm greeted by views of evergreens, frost, and most notably, sidewalks. Perhaps inspired by the revolution, I have decided to embrace this next phase of my life and move forward with a healthy mix of confidence and desperation. In other words, I need a job. Admittedly, Portland is notorious for lacking jobs - especially those in my field - but I just witnessed a dictator resign, anything is possible.
