I’m a strange kid.  I’ve always done strange things but it started a year ago when I suddenly hoarding art work.  I don’t know why I did it.  I sort of knew it would smell funky, but I did it anyway, out of curiosity.  You see, I know it was strange to think it and probably more strange to act on my thought but I find it hard to contain these strange urges.

Like, a month later, I found myself having the habit of hoarding.  Every hour.  No matter what I was doing.  It was like an alarm bell sounded in my brain and I had to purchase each fantasy once with my wallet or else something inside of me wasn’t getting satisfied.

Another time, I found myself cleaning my ears with a Q-Tip, sniffing and touching the tip with my tongue…habitually.  That lasted for two weeks.

Oh, please, I don’t mean to gross you out. But you see, I know it’s weird.  I’m a weird kid.  I get it.  I don’t know why I’m weird.  Are there things that you do that are weird, too?

Arash has been writing stories ever since he could hold a pencil! What started out as an intrinsic love for storytelling has turned into his lifelong passion. There’s nothing he likes better than writing (and reading) stories that is humorous in English and Persian languages, with a touch of Suspense and a poignant streak of truth running through them. Arash is also a YouTuber, Persian singer/songwriter, blogger, traveler, filmmaker, big dreamer, and professional kabob eater. When he’s not writing or dreaming up new stories, you can find him in an adventure road-tripping to national parks!
