    You have to go to a forum heading like "General Chat" and you should see a button toward the top left for starting a thread.

    Hay all.
    Just back from some long 9 hours at work... and soon going to my spanish lesson.. so i'll be back online only tommorow.. ..
    Now as for koas question..
    Yep it's true.. army in Israel is mandetory to all.
    Boys - 3 year right after finishing highschool.
    Girls - 2 year right after finishing highschool.
    If you want to study then you just have to wait after finishing your service.
    Altought in the last years there is an increasןing amount of people that refuse to serve or leave the army for medical\mentaly reasons.
    I have at least 4 or 5 friends like that, (it's not that they really get carzy or something the army just sometimes prefers not to handle with people that make a lot of trםubles and don't really want to serve..
    Altought for some of them it really hard to leave becouse they use them as example for others and sometimes even send them to jail... ).

    Hi, I'm so delighted to discover this website that really suits my interests. Can't believe that there are so many already registered and welcoming new friends in literature. I would like to have this as my regular pastime.

    Hey hey. Pensive, what a great idea. It never crossed my mind to start a thread like this. I'm glad to come across it.

    The name I use is my real name, but separated. Adil Youssef. I use it all the time at any place I subscribe to.

    The avatar represents the kind of person I would like to become, wise and chearful.

    My hobies are sport, music and reading. I love horses. The first time I rode one was at age of 4. I like also cycling and swiming. For music, I like rock music and instrumantal one also. I have a guitar although I'm not a profetional. BTW I don't have a good voice. I avoid singing.

    I'm now a teacher trainee. I've not expected to become so but it hapened. I've started learning English since 2001 and now I'm teaching it. I truly love this language. I believe that anyone who truly like what he/she does succeeds in it. I've not yet finished my university studies but I hope next year I'll have a chance to finish them. I most like psychology and anthropology. But we don't have them in my city. If I graduate at the university, I'll try to get my PHD in these fields: somthing like an analysis of human behavior according to a specific culture or area.

    I don't whant to bother you with what I've done in my life or the diplomas that I got for that I'll be just boring. I feel I'm writing a lot.

    There is one thing that I'd like to say which is I love this Lit. web, it is truly something I find myself in. You guys are the best friends I have for I share with you what love.

    Thank you for all being here and sharing our ideas and respecting what we are. We are different but all human.

    Kindest reguards.

    Adil

    Oh! life you'r but hell
    Oh! hell you'r but in me
    When I'v lost your love
    I'm lost in an ocean of destiny

    No, no, go not to Lethe, neither twist
    Wolf's bane, tight-rooted, for its poisonous wine;
    Nor suffer thy pale forehead to be kiss'd
    By nightshade, ruby grape of Proserpine;
    Make not your rosary of yew-berries,
    Nor let the beetle, nor the death-moth be
    Your mournful Psyche, nor the downy owl
    A partner in your sorrow's mysteries;
    For shade to shade will come too drowsily,
    And drown the wakful anguish of the soul.

    The first stanza of Keats' Ode to Melancholy. Very nice Nightshade. Now I will always remember where your name came from. We could spend hours talking over Keat's Odes. Possibly the best poetry in the English language, even better than Shakespeare. My favorite lines from that poem are the concluding two lines:

    His sould shall taste the sadness of her might,
    And be among her cloudy trophies hung.

    Smilingtearz, I was a kind of surprized when I saw some members calling you Eva, now I have gotten it. So I gotta call you Eva from now on. *smiles*

    Nightshade, Great Introduction....reminds me of A tree grows in Brooklyn. I should re-read it but no, first I have to complete The Magus. It is getting interesting.
    I sang of leaves, of leaves of gold, and leaves of gold there grew.
