Technologically Challenged


I consider myself to be a fairly technologically-savvy person.

But today, while studying on the 5th floor of the library, I disproved that assumption in embarrassing fashion. One of the assignments for my daily Arabic homework was to listen to a Nizar Qabbani poem--resalah min taht el ma'a (Letter From Under the Water)--sung by a famous Egyptian singer named Abd el Halim.

Only after I had listened to nearly ALL of this song on my laptop did a fellow classmate named Tom (who happened to be studying nearby--thank goodness), come up to me and whisper:

"Hey . . . did you know your earbuds aren't plugged in?"

Yes, my friends. I had plugged my earbuds into the WRONG HOLE on my laptop and had unknowingly been listening to this FULL BLAST in the library.

To anybody and everybody studying on the 5th floor today: I offer my sincerest apologies.


  1. HAhahahahahahaha oh my goodness that made me laugh really hard. I truly wish I had been there. Don't worry, it happens to the best of us!

  2. Hahahaha! I was on the 5th floor today for a good 2 hours with my study group and I did not hear this.. unfortunately.

  3. I was sitting at a bakery reading this when I burst out laughing. I'm pretty sure the people here think I'm crazy now.

  4. Hahaha. That's a funny story! It does happen though :)

  5. This is VERY funny to me. I wish I had been on the 5th floor but I never go to the library--I just go home and pass out on the bed in my underwear.

  6. I wish I could "like" Tara's comment.
