Home and some self-reflection

"Home is where the heart is". Whoever said that must have been the most loved man or woman in his or her time in the world because he definitely knows what he's talking about. After spending my time callously before my first finals and ending the year as a 'freshman' as they call it in the States, I came back home after being away for almost 9 months. But to be honest, and I know everybody says this, but it feels way longer than that. Meeting old friends, friends who I have known from Year 7 and spending time with them after so long made the occasion ever so special, as they are truly becoming family as each day passes. And of course, meeting my parents after so long definitely made me shed a few tears. As you can tell by the time I publish this blog post, it will have been the first one in quite a long time and it's all because I was busy having one of the best summer vacations in my life.

My first blog post in a very long time

Hi, Wimpy Asian here. I know it's been pretty long that I have posted anything, and in the meanwhile I have garnered some followers and if any of you are seeing this, then welcome to my blog. I know I haven't posted anything for a while. Well, I don't really have an excuse for that, I had all the time in the world after my exams ended and have been leisurely spending my summer vacation sipping ice tea in the comfort of my home back in Bangladesh. The blog was really an excuse to get away from my studies for my finals in the first year as an undergrad at City University, which I think I should've spent more time preparing for than blogging. Well, I always had to be the hard worker to get the results, and well... I didn't. My parents were disappointed at first, however they were comforted by the fact that my results were still 'first class', but they were expecting a bit more. I am saying all of this now because I have openly shared my convictions with the world. I mean, I know that this blog hasn't really gotten much traction in terms of traffic, but I stopped caring about that after I had decided that I would write this post

I guess we just need to get some of our thoughts off our mind, and sharing my stupid dreams and ambitions on the internet always helped me calm me down. I kind of realize now that I started this blog because I felt alone in this new environment by doing an undergrad abroad, something that I did not experience this summer vacation back home socializing with old friends I went to school with for around 6 years. Now that most of my closest friends have gone to pursue their studies in America, I am going to staying an extra 2 weeks alone. Maybe that's why I'm deciding to post all of a sudden.I guess people are very simple in that aspect, it's always the simplest of reasons why we do things

I know all of these thoughts are not coherent, but I my intention was to say that I want to try and blog more in the future, with whatever interests me. I have been reading a lot of books while I was gone, so hopefully, I will be posting a review of the 'Life of Pi' by Yann Martel pretty soon (haven't finished reading it). I think by now people would understand that if you want content from me, consistency will most definitely not be the 'it' factor about this blog. However, if I do post content, I will make sure that is "quality over quantity". I still do hope to entertain anybody who stumbles upon my blog and spares a few minutes to read what I have to say.
