Hello, stranger.

Well well well... what have we here? Ah yeah, it's me.

I'm sorry, I didn't recognise myself. You see, it's just been so long since I last posted a blog. I say "so long," when I really mean "a very long time; almost half a year."

I first started blogging because an english project inspired me to do so, but as many of my friends know, my enthusiasm shines in its first five minutes. It doesn't really shine so brightly in the long-term.

I decided that I ought to post something, to try and redeem myself. By that, I mean "hey, it's christmas day and I have nothing else to do, so I thought I'd log in."

Yes, it is christmas day, and I'm muslim, so I don't really have anything to do. Although I always tell my parents that it's fine to celebrate christmas, because it's not really Jesus' birthday, and has virtually nil christian symbolism in its framework. It's so commercialised, it's not really religious at all. So even though it has nothing to do with me specifically, I'm still rather excited. Namely for one reason and one reason only... the christmas episode of Dr. Who! It's got to be said, it is an amazing show! It's a real pity that they don't air it all year. Most of you probably won't share that opinion, but i'm a dork.

That's really all I was building up to. I made you suckers read all of that, thinking it was going to be really exciting and about how my christmas day was going, as well as various religious or moral conflicts I have with the celebration, but I really just fooled you all. I hope you had fun reading about how awesome I think Dr. Who is... Great job wasting your time! :)

Prince is a legend, your argument is invalid.

Fact. I have nothing else to say on this matter.

On Point.

Sunglasses; my raison d'ĂȘtre. especially the unusual ones. admittedly, i'm not the biggest GaGa fan, but you can't deny that her shade game is absolutely on point. i love it.

OH THEY SUCK, but we all have to do them, which is a shame. ICT exam on monday and i haven't spent as much time as i originally anticipated on revising 'the internet', but more time actually using the internet. "Facebook + Texting = Textbook... so technically, i'm revising" - I love facebook groups. Some of them are rather stupid to say the least, but others can put a smile on your face.

It's absolutely stupid that the school isn't letting us come to school in non-uniform on the day of our science modules!! who's idea was that?!?!?! i was expecting something like "you can wear non-uniform, just nothing with writing on it" and technically, that means that the whole of year 9 won't be contributing towards whatever charity collection there is going on, which i believe is actually an in-school thing. that's immediately £157 the school have lost out on.

The revision sucks too. I wish i could download all of the stuff i needed to know into my brain. Why can't apple invent that, instead of a giant iPod touch?!

Exams, exams, exams. My life couldn't get any better right now.

Rockstar 101 - Rihanna feat. Slash

Abolutely uncreative and very repetetive. These songs and videos that people call 'art' and 'trendsetting'. Seriously? Surely this isn't what the female teenage public have been reduced to? It's not Rihanna who wrote them, it's not Rihanna who directed or cut the videos and its certainly not Rihanna who came up with a concept and you know what? there probably is no 'Rihanna', perhaps she's just a fictional character or just a 'hot chick' that Jay Z taught how to lip sync and set her editing software to autotune.

I always wondered, doesn't Rihanna get sore throats? and the answer is, no. Rihanna doesn't. The person that sings for her does, though. There is no way that you can take a Barbados accent and transform it into a platinum selling album.

Being a rockstar isn't about playing guitar and whatnot; it's about attitude, and she can't even pull that off! 1 more thing: SLASH WASN'T EVEN IN THE VIDEO!!!

She needs to get her hair cut somewhere where they can either redeem what's left of its dignity or just cut it off and give her a weave, like Beyonce, and she needs to fire her stylist and hire someone who can do quirky, not incongruous stripper.

Every single song in Rated R is awesome, the guys at Def Jam records did a great job, seriously fellas, you rock! Robyn Rihanna Fenty, who the hell are you!? If you're going to insist on the creation of this poison, i don't see why your albums don't have 'ear rape' warning labels on them.
