If you see me post, I'm awake. If you don't see me post, then I'm probably still awake. If I say "I'm going to go to sleep" I'm lying. I'm Hannibal Lecter (But not really), 18, England. I post stuff. I think I'm far enough into my blog for you to be able to look around and see if you like, or dislike, the things I post. Feel free to follow me, but it's okay if you don't, I'd rather my follower count to be lower. Followers are too mainstream for me ;) Also, be sure to check out my art work before you leave (The link should be down there somewhere)!
Right, so, me, where do I start? My name’s Fokral Islam, I’m 16, but my name isn’t really Fokral, because that’s the wrong spelling, which I prefer, so I’ve been using it for years - Also, I have a first name, which isn’t Fokral or Fokrul (The other spelling of my name, which, as I said, I do not like), but something else, and I’m not going to tell you guys because I, am one of the very few people that know it, and I like that, it’s awesome.
I live in Birmingham, England, which is okay, not perfect, but, hey, where is?
Things I like? Hmm, this could turn out to be a very long ‘about me’ post - I like a lot of things, I like doing a lot of things, I just like stuff. I should probably start with school subjects and branch my way out from there - I enjoy Music, Art, Maths, Physics, PE and probably some other stuff that I can’t remember due to my lack of awesomeness today.
Music! I like music, I play the keyboard and acoustic guitar. I’m a fan of bands such as Rise Against, Three Days Grace, Sum 41, Fall Out Boy, Paramore, All Time Low, Linkin Park, Evanescence, Xandria, My Chemical Romance, Blink 182, Bullet For My Valentine and ya know, the list goes on, I like rock, punk rock, alt rock, heavy metal, pop punk, deathcore, and so on…
Art, well, art, where do I go from here? Art’s cool. I don’t particularly enjoy the lessons or the way it’s taught or anything, it’s quite boring. I’m currently taking the unendorsed Art GCSE, so I’ve had the chance to experiment with photography, sculpting, fine art, graphic design, and whatever else. Outside of art lessons I enjoy messing around with cameras, I draw various things, I do 3D modelling, and I make stuff out of Post-it notes.
Ah, okay, Maths, this is easy - I like maths because it’s pretty easy for me, I took the exam last year and it was a breeze. I’m currently doing maths A-levels and it’s a lot more interesting - I’m no longer just doing it because it’s easy, I’m doing it more because it’s new and fresh, and there’s more applications and such. I also like maths because of how it plays such a massive part in life, there’s an infinite number of ways it can be used, and that’s gr69.
Physics, also fairly easy - I plan on becoming a doctor in Physics, because it’s just absolutely fascinating, It’s so much more interesting than Biology (Which is just blech, for me) and it’s mathematical - It’s pretty much describing life with numbers (Except medical physics, which is much less number-based). Quantum mechanics is what made me interested in Physics a little over a year ago, it was just so strange and there’s so much creative freedom, it’s awesome.
PE, probably the shortest paragraph - I’ve liked PE these past two years because our group’s been awesome. PE used to suck and, in year 1 or 2 or something, I didn’t go to school because I didn’t like PE - But now, it’s great, I enjoy it, I’m great at dodgeball, so, yay, go me! I play football, basketball, badminton, tennis, I used to go kick-boxing, but something happened to our trainer and I also used to do Judo, but they stopped it. I’m also a Sports Leader, and part of the Step into Sport voluntary program, which means I can organise sporting events and help out around the country (Which I haven’t done ever since I got the qualification, but the qualification’s come in handy quite a bit)
Some random other stuff about me? Uhhh… I’m weird, I don’t know what to say - I’m a proud delinquent/supporter of the amazingly awesome Hayley McGehan, I can build complex electrical circuits, I can draw up circuit diagrams, I can wire up and strip down a house’s electrical doo-dahs, I like Doctor Who, I like Harry Potter, I wear glasses sometimes, my favourite authors are Eoin Colfer and HG Wells, I’m a casual gamer, I make video tutorials, AMVs and animations on Youtube, I like scissors, I like people, I have delusions of grandeur (I have had for quite some time, and I’m not sure if knowing that I am delusional still lets me qualify as delusional, but, yeah, that’s the only way I can describe it), I have brown eyes (But almost black, a lot of the time), I don’t like dogs, I’m a cat-person, I like reading manga, I like it when people smell nice, I prefer Sonic to Mario, I like Lisa Ruocco more than Holly Madison, I like Alex more than Jack, I like Rian more than Zack, I like Australia, Canada and Spain, my first language is Bengali, but I can speak Spanish better than I can speak Bengali, I like writing short stories, I’m addicted to chocolate (Not even a stereotypical period-fuelled, hormonal, constantly post-breakup girl eats as much chocolate as I do), I like chicken, I absolutely abhor cheese, and, yeah, I’m a boy. So Hi :)
That was my original ‘About me’ page thing, I guess I’ll keep it up, unedited because it’s still fairly relevant for the most part, and I think it’d be nice to just be able to see if things change over the years (If this Tumblr lasts that long).
I’m now 17, have been for a fair while now, I guess. I go to college (English college, so… High school, I guess? Something like that, I don’t understand yer systems!) currently doing my Maths, Physics, Biology, Chemistry and Critical Thinking A-levels which are going pretty well, I’m enjoying them, at least :)
Even though I no longer do Art as a GCSE, I still do a lot of art-based things like drawing, painting, wax modelling and such, there’s a link to some of my stuff on the sidebar, so go check it out!
Also, I don’t do Music any more, but I still do… Music…? O_o I still play guitar and piano and stuff, I still enjoy it, and strangely enough I’m singing a little more now, not so much for other people (My voice is terrible, nobody’d want to hear me sing to them) but more for myself.
Aside from those, I’m not really sure what more there is to say, I’m pretty much the same person, I like to believe that I’m a little better as a person and that I’ve got a better way of thinking now, but I don’t know, thinking and thinking ‘correctly’ are such strange, abstract-y things that I can’t really say for certain that my way of thinking’s any better than it was before - It may be worse, in the grand scheme of things!
In the end, I guess I’m still just a boy with some dreams.
