I'm not really sure what answer people are expecting when they ask students like myself how we are feeling about the upcoming exam results day. Sometimes the question can be easily answered with a simple reply but at times it can be tricky depending on the person. Most of the time though, it is a…Read more Don’t Ask Me About Results Day!
Month: July 2014
Celebrating Eid on the second day is always more lively than the first for me since it is the day where my mother's side of the family get together. Although there are actually less kids of my age, the relationship between my maternal aunts and uncles is much stronger than the paternal side. Although sometimes…Read more Picking Sides
Those Dreadful Fees Just Became A Little Less Dreadful
I'm not really one to announce things like this but since you people have been wishing me well and good luck in my search for financial help for tuition fees, I thought I'd share with you some good news. I have managed to secure a £3,000 grant for the first year of my university fees…Read more Those Dreadful Fees Just Became A Little Less Dreadful
My Wisdom Is Growing
I know it is not good to boast and I detest arrogant people but today I can honestly say my wisdom is growing, even as I type. Have I been injected with some Gamma rays of the intelligence kind? Alas no, instead the wisdom is growing in my mouth. Wisdom teeth. Cheeky little things which…Read more My Wisdom Is Growing
Curiousity And Racism
There is a difference between curiousity and racism. When a close-knit community receives a visitor, it is only expected that stares and perhaps even suspicious glances would greet him. Although they may seem slightly off-putting, it is a reaction which does not have its roots in hatred but only curiousity or fear for security. The…Read more Curiousity And Racism
Learn In Your Sleep? Yeah Right.
Scientists like to tease us. You'll see in the news one day that 'Humans Can Learn In Their Sleeep' so understandably you read the article, eager to discover how such an amazing thing is possible. It is only when you get to the end that your heart sinks as you realise that it, like many…Read more Learn In Your Sleep? Yeah Right.
I am not really sure Yorkshire can be classified as the countryside or simply a small sleepy town. The people here appear to be friendly although there are the few racists who shout out remarks as they drive past. An ignorant bunch, borne out of fear of the unknown. The one thing that is more…Read more The Countryside
Do You Like To Talk Publicly?
Normally, when the teacher announces that presentations will need to be given, a collective groan rolls around the classroom like a mexican wave but would it be odd to say that I tend to secretly look forward to them? No, I am not an accomplished public speaker who charges a couple thousand pounds for a…Read more Do You Like To Talk Publicly?
Not Travelling In Style
Car journeys can be fun but mostly they are a chore. Unless you are travelling in luxury and comfort with spacious seats, sufficient legroom and a beautiful view. Sadly, today's four hour drive along the grey motorway was neither beautiful, luxurious or comfortable. Squeezed into the car like sardines meant falling asleep was quite the…Read more Not Travelling In Style
Planning The Two Thousand Followers Party
So amazingly the two thousand followers benchmark is approaching-hold your horses no congratulations just yet! What I wanted to ask was, how should we celebrate? As you know in the past, I have done the art pieces for fellow bloggers so that is an option. Another option could be a Q&A post where I answer…Read more Planning The Two Thousand Followers Party
It was an amazingly hot evening in London but instead of relaxing in the coolness of the living room with the fan whirling merrily, I had to instead do my duties as an older brother by attending my younger brother's end of year play. It is his final year at Primary School so it was…Read more Child’s Play
How Do You Read?
If we were all judged on our acting skills according to how well we can pretend to be asleep when our parents poke their head in through our bedroom door, then I am pretty sure that would to a large extent, even out the disparity in the social backgrounds of film stars. We have all…Read more How Do You Read?
