So after much worrying, and delibration and again a little bit of worrying, i have finally moved into my own apartment. My own in the every sense of the word. I co inhabit this place. Which draws a thick line right down the rent and other costs. Hence making living a little bit easier. Yes it seems i have stepped out of shell and into my own. Flown from the nest so to speak. First staying at hotels, on my own, sponsered by the company ofcourse. But me. Not piggy back with my dad on one of his trips, but me! It’s all in digestion.

About the place. Well its furnished. It has a view of the sea and the sprawling city that is karachi. And its clean and has a lot of potential to become one of those living spaces one admires on tv. That requires work and commitment. My flatmate and I have already decided to paint the walls and jazz up the place.

There is worse music people listen to out there.

Apartment, cleaning, cooking and the whole running the house scenario.

Anyways even the anxiety attacks have passed. No good trying to anticipate something when there is a million ways for it turn out. The equations never would balance.  Too many variable.

The thing is. The kinks work out one by one. Travel plans, hotel reservations, everything is slowly falling into place. Now it’s just the matter of finding a good apartment to spend the rest of my days in.

This is Karachi, my new home, sprawled like spilled milk on a polyester table cloth.
