What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working on my PhD in Philosophy, looking forward to getting out and on with it. In five years I envision myself working in a different part of the world, speaking a different languag.

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

As an ongoing student I read a lot of philosophy, from Phenomenology and existentialism (Nietzsche, Husserl, Heidegger, Bergson, Merleau Ponty, Deleuze, Sartre) to Political philosophy (Rousseau, Hegel, Machiavelli, Agamben, Chibber) and Post/Anti-Colonial theory (al-Azm, Cesaire, Fanon, Memmi, Said, Samir Amin, Dabashi).

Recently I've been reading fiction again for the first time: Jean Genet, Elias Khoury, Tayeb Salih, Ghassan Kanafani.

As for films, I mostly watch documentaries. I loved Terrence Malick's "Days of Heaven" and and the Coen Brothers' "No Country for Old Men". And I used to be really into Wes Anderson.

Musically, right now I'm listening to a lot of Sameeh Shukair, Marcel Khalife and many other Oud players. I've also been getting really into Om Kalthoom.

Food? this is getting long. Well, the last year has been for me one of exploring bread making. Pizza, flatbreads, round loaves - experimenting with different flours, rise times, even no-knead breads. I ran a skill sharing workshop last week on breadmaking, there were only 2 rules: "no measuring" and "turn the oven up all the way". Smiles ensued.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
my beard
and a book in my bag, that thinking about makes life feel at least a little bearable.
Musical instrument (either my guitar, mandolin or oud)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Political struggles, questions of collective self-determination and self-assertion. What solidarity means, especially when there is a conflict in values between yourself and the one in need of solidarity. The treatment of animals, especially concerning how capitalism has transformed already exploitative relationships and made people cold to their own everyday cruelty. Possibilities for radical transformation - and especially how those possibilities are quashed by sloppy thinking, (often thinking which goes by the name of "possibilities for radical transformation").
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
At my home - a shared co-operative living situation, collectively preparing food, maybe watching a documentary on our projector. Or headed out to an event about the ongoing catastrophe in somewhere or other.

Edit: summertime Friday's=porch beer time!
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
A recent relationship radically changed my understanding of my own sexuality.

I'm practicing polyamoury, and I have two wonderful partners. So, if you're looking for a monogamous partner, well we can still be friends!
