Hello everyone! Inspired by such blogs as the religious policeman, mahmood.tv, and many others, I've decided to become the newest addition to the booming blogging community in the middle east. There are many reasons why i've decided it's a good time to start blogging. Partly because because I'm going through a severe patch of boredom, and partly because there is so much that is going on now in Bahrain and the middle east that the oppurtunity of indiscriminate ranting just cannot be missed! Since this is the first post, some introductory info is due. I'm a 21 year old bahraini studying for the fourth year (too long) running in England, where now I'm doing a masters. I've seen a blog made by a bahraini in Bahrain, and recently a blog by an expat in Bahrain, so I think it's about time to have a blog made by a bahraini who is outside of bahrain. Anyway, I hope this new venture of mine works, and hopefully that I do keep posting for more than a week (that's my initial target!).
