What we have in common

I guess I'm not alone.

There are, I'm sure, other 21-year-old, 'four-eyed,' lonely teenagers who would pretty much like to share their every thought and memoir. I'm also sure I'm not the only one with so feeble a body that can't perform daily, ordinary tasks daily and ordinarily.
My younger brother called me 'weak dude' today. I kind of think it's funny. But it's still real.
The only question that remains unsolved now is why. Is it my depression? Probably. Or maybe a deficiency of some vitamin, which reminds me of the name of a book that I've made up. The girl with the vitamin D deficiency. Sounds nice. I'd definitely read that.

A golden era

May has been a golden month for me. I started using Twitter (as exemplidied on the right,) I got a new cellphone, my laptop came back in business today and I developed an addiction to Twitter thanks to the means available. Oh, and by the end of May, this semester ends.

I've had two final exams thus far. Did well in both, I suppose. That's good news. Another is that I've just found out that I have a tiny bit of an
audience.
Mostly in the USA. So in order to keep it going this way, I'm going to need a set of rules to go by in my blogging journey.

Rule number one:Never look back.
So I shall never read previous posts no matter what.
Rule number two: Never feel shy.
So I'd post whatever I want whenever I feel like it.

This might be the last time I post in May, since I have two exams left--for which I have not prepared in the least.

Social networks. Again!

I've never thought I'd ever get this disease, but...

My name is Abdullah. And I'm an addict.


Twitter and Facebook have never meant a lot to me. Neither do they now, but recently I've been letting them become an essential part of my life. I'm, like, obsessed with who wrote what on whose wall and mentioned whom in a comment or tweet.
This disgusts me. But somehow I enjoy it.

Nice try

Just trying mobile blogging.
Much simpler than I thought.

Social networks and their effect on my conceited, lowly-esteemed, somewhat paradoxical personality

I think one of the reasons I don't 'blog' anymore is that when I go back and read some of my previous precious posts I find them silly. Maybe that happens to everyone, but I , in particular, have self-confidence problems.

It all started with me as a kid. That is to say, when I was a kid, of course. I was raised in a manner that made it clear to me that kids and what they think are of no consequence whatsoever. Especially me and mine. That might be true, I think, but is no reason to shut them up all the time.

It is only recently that I started expressing myself clearly and vehemently. Thanks to social networks, methinks. And ca va sans dire that I don't care what people think. As a matter of fact, I would like it if someone was to disagree with me so that it would be another chance for me to prove myself.
You know why?
Because years of silent listening have given me something most people lack.

Wisdom.


Boy, do I sound (or read, if you will) arrogant.
