Some changes to the blog

Hey guys; This post is just to highlight some of the key changes I made to the blog. The most visible change you'll find is that the post about navigating this blog is no longer on the top of the page. I decided to instead add a menu link that will take you to the …

As if the week was over already…

Hey guys;   So, I thought that the week was over already, but...it's not totally over. Although today I had just 1 class, but there are still other updates, mostly on the non-academic side. So let's get to those... First, some good news regarding club activities. There'll be 3 club activities this month, although they'll …

This reminds me of my high school years. Even now, to be honest, I really miss my high school years, especially the long residential trips that I was guaranteed a spot on virtually all the time. As mentioned in my earlier posts or somewhere else that I can’t remember, until now I still can’t really cope with the fact that trips that aren’t related to a subject are no longer guaranteed assets; instead of just simply saying yes and pay the fees I actually have to compete with others.

Recently, my 16-year-old sister was talking about how fast a whole year has passed since she started revising for her GCSE exams. It reminded me of how it’s been nearly five years since I left my 11-16 state comprehensive secondary school – a place which played a great role in the development of my personality and my interests. With this in mind, plus the fact I’m now finishing my degree, I’ve decided to have a reminisce and tell you all about my experiences as an awkward teenager!

The story of my blog

Hey guys; So, this month officially marks 4 years since I actually started posting directly on this blog. Although my blog itself is nearly 7 years old, but literally all posts during its early years came from my older blogs. As this year marks the 7th birthday of this blog, I decided to share a …

Minor tweak to the blog’s appearance

What if 2016 was a great year

Hey guys; So, it's a good while since I last posted alternate scenarios of my life based on the concept of alternate history, so I think it's good to create another one... Like what the title says, this scenario is simple. What if 2016 was, instead of a bad and horrible year, a great and …
