Where do I begin? I could start with a corny introduction of myself or just jump in the middle of some kind of lame subject, but I’m not in the mood for any of the two. You see, I have more important issues to think about. I am not talking about the Middle East conflict (which is getting a bit boring by now), the latest earthquake, or about any other place where people are dying (because that is one of few general facts in the world: people ├íre dying). No, it’s not that. The world is passing me by because of just one simple thing: I have just arrived in Singapore and I’m totally lost. I am twenty-something and my life is booming. Well, it should be, but no, that’s not how I am experiencing it.
It all started when I was still an innocent university student. I was enjoying my night out with my friends, but then I saw him. This guy who totally blew me of my feet. Six feet tall, beautiful eyes, wild sexy hair, a gorgeous but and terribly drunk. Him, with who I fell in love with immediately and who I married before I could blink my eyes. It was like a dream.
But then I woke up, and all of the sudden I am living in tropical Singapore, far away from my family and friends. Married. I thought it all would be fantastic, but I can’t feel that right now. I am trapped in this weird generational and ethnical clash: I don’t fit in the student atmosphere, but I don’t see myself having a social network consisting of mothers (who seem constantly pregnant) either.
But still, I have hope. In the meantime, I am building on a long-term, efficient relationship with my netbook in my big new house. My days are filled with the giant task to stop talking to myself and start writing more, hoping I can find media who want to publish my work. While that should keeps me busy all day, I am also doing my very best not to become pregnant because I do appreciate to have a life of my own. Only because I don’t have one, it doesn’t mean I don’t want one.

Hi, Wtf, and Welcome to WriteWords.
I'm not sure what sort of feedback, if any, you are looking for in this piece. I'm assuming it's an introduction to yourself, in blog post format.
Anyway, all the best with the writing,

Hi NaomiM,

Yes, I should had given an introduction to my piece. It is the first of a series of columns. But I see now that because I have a trial membership I am not allowed to edit my piece or upload a new one :-(.
