FIRST

I didn’t understand people’s excitement of seeing a man until the unexpected moment I laid eyes on him for the first time. As he walked in the pathway, I gazed upon the beauty of his. He walks like a runway model on a high fashion event. His face mimics the grace of that of an…

BEAUTY IN DARKNESS

I first met her in a country I lived in yet was exotic to my nationality. Exotic to her own country. She has always been different, in looks, personality, mentality, and religously, compared to everyone around her. The suns delicate light had just turned the world a-flame with gold when I saw her. She had…

PREPRATION OF ESTERS

WHAT IS OUR WORLD MADE UP OF?

“What is the world, our world made up of and what holds it together?” I ask myself. This universe isn’t just some kind of random spark that has fluctuated in an empty void somewhere beyond the space/time continuum. It may be that, but it is also much more than that. Why do so many things…

TREK’KING’ TO TAAL

EVERYTHING IN THE UNIVERSE IS WITHIN US

YOUR DIGITAL FOOTPRINTS MATTER

As I said previously in my “Knowledge From Media” post, Media can make or break a person. If you were to make a mistake on media, specifically social media, people can frame those errors and display them infinitely. I believe, just like Publilius Syrus: “A good reputation matters more than money.” One doesn’t understand how…
