Life is a series of choices. Every step is a choice, an option, a decision. We try our best to make these choices based on what we know. What we pick may not be based on what is right and what is wrong, but what we believe in our minds and hearts. Whatever we do decide, we have to compromise. It is always one or the other.

The Building Just Shook

Was it just our building, or did anyone else feel it? Our building is in Sharq. I thought I was getting dizzy or sick because the world was swaying gently. A colleague mentioned that out loud and it turns out the building had actually shook very gently for about 10 seconds.

Update: We’re on the topmost floor, the 7th floor and people on the 3rd floor haven’t felt it. It might be from the construction close to our building, so thank God it isn’t an earthquake.

Update 2: It was actually an earthquake in Iran.

    They should, but I don’t think they would anytime soon.. and that is not a relaxing thought.

    Amethyst,

  27. It was an Earthquake in Iran | N. |

    [...] Yesterday I posted about the building wobbling (my new word). It turns out it is the aftereffects of a 5.1 magnitude earthquake that hit Iran. It was later reported that it was felt on the coastline in Kuwait. My colleague and I thought it was related to a construction nearby. [...]
