    Kidding. Subscribing 'cause you write wonderfully and the jokes are nice (and I have a private interest in some of the subject matter). :five:

    Thank you! :ahee:



    Lmaoooo, #BengiSquad is going strong. :dance:

    Ugh, tell me about it! They're just waiting until:
    a) a girl graduates
    b) a guy graduates + gets a high-paying job.
    :rofl: I haven't been to a family wedding in over 4 years now. My Dad hates them too to be fair. My Mum and everyone else was expecting us to be at the latest one (her 3rd cousins from Milton Keynes ) And we mutually agreed to fabricate a story where we were absolutely swamped with business at my Dad's restaurant on a Sunday morning.

    There was no swamp... I was on a train home. :ahee:

    See because of my dad's side of the family (not even my dad as such!), I should have already found a wife, and a house at this stage. The idea that I did a PhD is baffling them, but I don't think that the conversation about my non-religious ways and the fact that I'm bi won't end to well :hide:

    So yes, I know the feeling when you attend weddings :hugs:
    LOL this reminds me of the time I told my parents to think a little more critically about God and some basic psychological ideas like indoctrination. No word of a lie, he didn't say a thing in response and made me sit there with him and watch Zakir Naik for 3 hours straight

    This sounds like the time that they decided (this time on my mum's side) to take me to church for 7 bloody hours one time! I just didn't get it, I was like :erm: :lolwut: and all at the same time ...

    How did you retain your sanity? :eek: I can barely sit through the ten-minute YouTube videos with titles like 'atheist girl asks stupid question and argues, Dr. Zakir Naik gives powerful reply.' :rofl:

    Oh my God, don't get me started on Zakir Naik.
    Friggin' Peace TV. :rofl:
    The one time I even hinted at questioning the Quran, my mum FLIPPED. Kept frantically asking me why I was speaking like a disbeliever.
    Shame I couldn't answer by saying, "Because I am a disbeliever".

    I spent the time breaking down all of his arguments in my head. It got a little boring though since the same fallacies come up repeatedly Of course at the end of it I was reborn, never again shall I doubt what has been taught for over a millennium

    Too late, his arguments are really scaring me ... He's going on about the fact evolution doesn't exist and not he's getting mad at this stage ...

    If I sum up the text: it starts with reaching the centre of the Earth, then switches to 50 Shades of Grey, Shia Leboeuf, and concludes on an existential crisis. :confused:

    You didn't even make a proper introduction, for a literature student, that's pretty bad.

    I don't even mention the lack of a bibliography and footnotes.

    I explicitly said what the aim of this blog was in the first post.
    And I didn't realise there were specific guidelines for writing blogs, since this isn't even a proper blog site like Wordpress? As far as I've seen, everyone's blogs on here are varied and different, which means there's something for everyone.
    I'm sure there are more academic/essay style blogs for you to read if you can't follow my snappy writing style.
