Will words help?

The Arabic language is profound in that it is meticulously expressive beyond the scope of other major languages. You can call me biased and you can call me affectionate, but the truth to the matter is that Arabic is a beautiful progression of mankind. In fact, even back to the days before Islam the people that were skilled at oral communication and expressing themselves were considered as the grand figures in our society as they were the ones that told age-old stories ever so vividly, they were the ones that crafted poetry to the benefit of promoting reputations of tribes, kings, and even civilizations. The point being, I have a word in mind which can only be truly expressed in Arabic and that is: '3orbah.
I have to say that being abroad, all you need is to create a new network of people you will function within socially. Further, you must know that there are people out there that are sincere and wish to help you without asking anything in return. Whereas in contrast, you have people that have been conditioned to consider selfishness natural to the utmost degree. You may want to brace yourself for the fact that food choices can present to be a dilemma. Take me for instance, I sometimes find myself lost in thoughts on what to eat and how to keep up an exciting diet rather than a bland one. What is more is that the weather can affect you and your emotions, so just keep that in mind.
I feel that I am somewhat rusty with this blogging deal.

It's hard man, but like you said, it helps if you make friends, especially ones that you can relate to. Just get yourself some mosque buddies :p.

Sub7anAllah. I rarely visit my blog these days. By chance I said I'd check it today, and I see your comment posted. Quite the coincidence. Actually, I have made quite the mosque buddies.
