I’ve recently been going back and categorizing each and every one of the 1150 posts that I have written in the past 2 years, and while going through them, I discovered that my life has literally been recorded on the digital pages of this blog. Although it is freaky to a certain extent, the awesomeness beats the freakiness.
The same also goes for dates and occassions, and for someone as horrible with dates as I, it’s awesome to have all of these things recorded for future reference. For example, these are real examples that I have been asked recently.
“When was Hisham’s graduation last year?” Oh, just Google it, I’m sure you’ll find something on my blog.
“When did we go to the Turkish bath thingy?” May 27th, 2005.
“Do you remember when Paul left?” Google knows everything.
Yet, the weirdest sensation when looking back at older posts comes with the realization that I have grown so much. I have become more serious a person and less of a happy-go-lucky one. Here’s a post I wrote back in early March 2005 titled “If Confession is the Road to Healing…“, amended to be more realistic with what my confessions would be today.
only sources of world news are Aquacool, Mental Mayhem, and SubzeroBlue(although I keep myself up to date with news related to culture and technology).
Although I haven’t become a news junkie yet, I am definitely addicted to reading the news.
2. I’m a
bad, bad, bad parker.
I’m a good parker.
recently learned how to spell restaurant.
The “recently” isn’t too recent anymore, is it?
4. I don’t have an anti-virus software installed on my computer.
Ok, that one still holds true.
recently learned the difference between a democrat and a republican(ahem, ahem)
Same as number three.
6. I’ve been submitting the same research to the
same professor for the past 2 semesters.
Yeah, well, that went on, and once I thought I used it too much, I started using other research papers or the research papers my friends wrote earlier. We still do that. It works.
7. I have quite a hard time distinguishing left from right.
Ok, yeah, I think I’m getting worse with that. Like, much, much worse.
unsuccessfully tried to learn a dictionary(and I’ll probably try again eventually).
Last time I thumbed through the dictionary in an attempt to learn any words I didn’t know was a few months back- I used a regular pocket dictionary, and wow, I actually know most of the words. Hilarious.
I think FireFox is too yellow.
What? What? What? Firefox is the embodiment of perfection.
10. I never bothered to learn the multiplication table and never will. There’s also no way that I can add, subtract, or divide without using the marvelous calculator.
Ok, that’s also getting worse. My math-related braincells are dying constantly.
