Worries of a day

04/02/2010

I can define myself as a husband, a father of two, a son, a brother, an employee and a Saudi. All of that feels too much to handle. At the moment I am thinking of many things. I’ll be buying a house using the interest free loan from the company I work for. Yet, the loan will not be enough and I’ll have to borrow some more money since the real state  and land costs in a country full of vast empty land is high rocket.

In the same time, I am looking for a private school for my daughter Joori who will turn five next year. The only sources of information about private schools in my country are either friends and their experiences with schools for their own kids or the discussions boards in the internet!. Opinions differ and drivers for these opinions differ as well. I am not sure where she will end which is not a comfortable feeling at all since I believe that education will be one of the most important things I’ll leave her with.

As a Saudi who cares about what is happening in his country, I cannot stop looking at missed opportunities and things that can be done better. Maybe being an Industrial Engineer enforces such feeling. There is a long list of things that I can criticize, but there are few things happening that can help shaping a better tomorrow.

The above is just a sample of thoughts that run through my head during a normal day. Many more to come soon.
