On Writing and Resolutions

For too long, this site has been dormant. In the spirit of the start of a new year, I’ve opted to resolve to post here more often, ideally once a week, barring situations that may make me right more (interesting visits somewhere) or less (some sort of outbreak of massive Yemen related news or another #Barrymoregate-esque brush with unintentional viral stardom). If the past is any indication, I’ll aim to keep things eclectic; I’ve previously used this space to do everything from comment on Al Qaeda leader’s sartorial choices, discuss the surprising ubiquity random KPOP singles, expound on the importance of facial hair, and contextualize media frenzies, in addition to posting photos and aggregating my recent writings. I’ll refrain from setting any real limits or making any firm predictions on where things may lead: if the time since I unfortunately inadvertently set this space aside is any indication, things are likely to take a series of twists and turns. Either way, I’ll aim to use it as a place to post writings and reflections that don’t fit into my usual platforms (in addition to, hopefully, using it as a means of facilitating my long ruminated aim to begin reviewing the burgeoning number of Yemeni restaurants popping up around the world). Here’s hoping what I write will be of use to readers on some level–or, at the very least, make for somewhat interesting reading.
