Work from home..

yes, that's right. Now you don't even have to step outside to go to work. Just turn on your computer. City Talent helps you find that kinda work. Yes, Craigslist might also get you there. But to me, City Talent seems more reliable.

Our World online...

Been a month since I posted here. No e-dreams, so didn't have anything to write. Haha. Actually, I fell asleep on a conference call, and probably talked a whole lot in my sleep. But (un)fortunately my phone was on mute, so no one heard me.

I'm back to blogging on here, and will try not to leave it deserted again. Speaking on Wired-Me, I'll be attending an online Concert, Insha Allah. That's right. A very interesting idea! From SunniPath Blog:

We are extremely excited to announce that SunniPath will be hosting a free online Eid concert featuring Talib al-Habib on Saturday, October 20th at 12pm GMT. More details, along with a link to pre-register (seats will be limited), will be posted the week before the event.

In the meantime, you can visit the Nur al-Habib Productions website to preview some of Talib al-Habib’s albums.

We look forward to seeing you there and celebrating Eid together!

Save the Changes

Saturday, September 01, 2007


Yesterday, I went to Walmart with my parents. We had just left home, and were at closest major intersection, I realized it then - I had forgotten my phone/blackberry/pda/clock/gps - my "everything" - at home. I didn't feel like asking my dad to take me back.

We went to Walmart, and another stop on our way, and we were home in less than an hour. All through the trip I kept missing my phone - wondering who might have called me, emailed me. And I wondered what H would think if I didn't reply to her immediately. Anytime my best friends calls, they know I'll answer - no matter where I am. Once H emailed me, and asking me to call her. I didn't see the email for 10 minutes or so. When I called her, she was like, "woah, Hafsa, 10 minutes delay? What's wrong?"

That's how connected I am - at all times.

This brings me to the point of the post. Early in July, I found a new friend (HD). And this friend asked me something very interesting. The question that kept echoing in my mind for a while was, whether my tech craze represented my love for the dunya?

I don't know if I have an answer yet, but I understand the question better now.

And there are people out there who can live without Email or Cellphone:

Alan Moore, 53, a writer in Northampton, England, has no e-mail, no Web access, no cellphone. His PC is a "glorified typewriter."

He knows all about blogs and Google and MySpace; an imposter even put up a MySpace page in his name. He understands the convenience of cellphones and knows that people can have hundreds of channels on their TVs rather than his few broadcast ones.

Despite this, "I don't think I'm missing out."

Instead of Googling every question, he refers to books. Instead of toting a cellphone on a walk, he just walks. "Not being able to be phoned when I'm out: that is blissful," he says.

"We live in a culture where we are completely swamped with information. It's like some invisible fluid. I try to control the flow of information through my life."

The floor's open to my readers**. How connected are you? Ever had the thoughts of cutting it down?
