'Personal' Career: Society
- Writing: I find writing to be the single most rewarding activity
- and I am not just refering to the finished product, but to the actual
process itself. To me writing is soothing, self revealing, and most of all entertaining. I plan on
writing profusely in the future (God willing); whether I actually get
published or not is of little relevance. I enjoy writing non-fiction. I
involve myself in a variety of genres that can best be grouped under the
single title: "life matters" ("matters" is intentionally used for its
capacity to be understood within that phrase as both a verb and a noun):
psychology, philosophy, Islam, politics, lifestyle, and social commentary.
The underlying mentality behind most of my ideas is Islamically influenced,
though I try to not to be too self righteous.
- Media: If ever I amass a significant amount of money, I would
definitely invest in a pioneering, quality media enterprise. I am appalled
at the shortcomings of the existing media corporations; they are taking
humanity down a very bumpy road to eventual chaos and disfunction, awhile
amazingly illiciting its heartfelt blessings and support. I believe the media's purpose should
simply be "to nourish the mind and soul". I think its capacity to influence
is immeasurable as is proven day after day. I am sorry to see that amazing
potential to bring us together, and cure our many social diseases be put to
utter and complete waste. I believe that the movie making industry,
especially, is in the hands of those who could care less about the
collective fate of human beings; that makes me very angry. The movie
industry is also the media branch with the highest potential for influence.
- Politics. So far, I am definitely interested in some sort of
future political involvement. I figured with all the garbage out there, I
couldn't possibly make matters any worse. Alternatively, I would like to be
involved in a significant social effort or organization that works to
someway benefit people at large.
- Hobbies: I also hope to find time to practice my hobbies and
interests: sculpting, painting, caricaturing, debating, Judaic and islamic
studies, Islamic charities, and activism, and children.
