Hello guys, I saw a title among blogs, named "why we cant stop using smartphones" or someting like that and i want to tell you that "WE CAN". There some reasons of me stopping using my smart phone but there is only one main reason which is that I wanted to see what changes when i dont use my smartphone anymore. It has been one week already and so far things went well. And I can list what things has changed after stop using it.
1. More time to think for things around you.
I would like to share my unforgettable moment with you all, actually it was more a scary moment at that current time, but looking back, my sister and I can really laugh for long, long time recalling that memory.
It was a summer day, I was about six years old, Mom told us to go out and play - Behind our house there was a playground.
My sister and I decided to lay down in the grass - As said so done. I can not recall what…Continue
I am taking the challenge as well!!!
When I was a child I wanted a sister.
Many years ago my mother got pregnant and I remenber when my parents went to the hospital because the "moment" had arrived! (at that time you were not able to know if the baby was a boy or a girl. You had to wait that your mother gave birth to know it!), I got anxious, because remember: I wanted a sister!
I put my elbows over the window and waited for long hours for my father"s return…Continue
It was when I was about five years old. I was sleeping with my parents in an upstairs room, which had a window that lead to a balcony. I woke up at midnight and looked out of the window. Then I saw something white floating in the dark and thought it was a ghost. Though I was very frightened, I soon fell asleep again because I felt my parents would protect me. After that, I became frightened of ghosts when I was a child, but when I became an adult and thought…Continue
Like many of you I also have many unforgettable moments in my life! So, I want to write some more stories one by one. Here is the first one!
It happened many years back, then I was 17 years old. I went to my grandparent's village to attend in my grandfather's funeral. There we stayed 3/4 days. One day I along with my cousins had bath in the pond. There they made a boat type thing with the stems of the banana tress. We, everybody rode on it. But, suddenly it turned over, I fell down…Continue
Following is my submission on Onee Chan's motivation.
It was a long time ago when I was looking for a job. One of my relatives asked me to visit his house to talk about this how could he help me. He directed me how to reach his house which was situated in a locality of lower middle class where all the houses were on the roadside. …Continue
Long time ago, when I was 14-15, I wanted my parents to buy me a mountain bike. That time I didn't know that real mountain bikes are 10-20 times more expensive than regular ones, although they look almost the same.
There were no limits of my happiness and gratitude on my birthday, when I had gotten my own bike! But the bike's gear shift…Continue

Yes, I would like to say thanks a lot to our honorable founder Mr. Josef for his today's mail regarding English club members' profile pictures!

Hi everyone! ^_^
Checking photo collections in my netbook made me think of the words for the pictures. However, I found it not too easy to find the correct words. What about you? I've checked the answers. The answer of each picture is one English word except number 5. Let me know your idea or guessing. :))
* Participants have already found the answers and I wrote them at the bottom of each picture. Hence, you…Continue
Muslim in all over the world will celebrate their holy day, Eid Day, in four or five day later. There is a different tradition to celebrate that day. Each country has their own way to celebrate it. One of the traditions that we have in my country is "Mudik".
"Mudik" is a mass exodus of million people…Continue
You know when it comes to books I'm a hardcore advocate. Reading them, giving them to friends, family, kissing cousins, hell even random strangers. The point is these days it's really hard to find people reading $#!7. They're busy taking pictures of their new doggy door or the last molar they have removed.
In France there's a bookstore that's onto something. The Librairie Mollat employees take pictures of themselves and do their best to match their actual photos with book…Continue

Have you ever offended the people who are somehow important for you? What did you do to get forgiveness?
I would like to share with you one of my stories. I offended one of the very important persons for me. And he didn´t give me any chance to ask for apologize. No one tiny chance. No answers to calls. No answers to e-mails…nothing of that. And I was really hurt with my guiltiness.
What I did is I wrote a blog. The first blog in my life. And sent a link. Expressing my thoughts and…
