Life is simple but it does not mean that it is easy. Life according is all about a set of rules and guidelines that we need to follow and in doing so it will make things a lot easier in a sense for us. It is all about balance as well as we need to know when to have fun and when to work to work in order to get what we want. We all have responsibilities nad tasks to do. Once we are settle with our responsibilities, we all know that we can go on without any fear or worry.
Show me your friends and I will tell you who you are! It is true that friends share the same values, beliefs and culture most of the time. But to what extent is this quote true. How much can you resemble your friends? I don't know for sure how much do friends share the same characteristics but what I can tell you is that the opposites attract each other.
Very often, we are very judgemental about a group of people. In other words, If I am sitting down with my friends at the beach and they are consuming beer for instance, in the eyes of the society it definitely means that I am a huge beer consumer as well. However, the reality is that I am just chilling with a group of friends. Why is it like we have to create scenarios in our heads whereby we already chose where to put one another. Why is it like when you see someone from a different skin color or dress code you conclusive make the deduction that this person is from that background and the other person is like that. We have created myths that are so strong that nowadays when we look at someone, we do not really get to know who that person really is. We conclusively draw our conclusions based on those myths.
It's crazy how people can bring you down unknowingly. We are so selfishfly saying what we say sometimes that we forget to consider what the other person might feel sometimes. We just give our thoughts out of the blue sometimes that we hurt others unknowingly.
Why is it like some people are not optimistic about whatever you are doing. They will always tell you that you cannot do this or that. They will tell you that you cannot reach that level or you cannot go that far. Well, the only thing that we can do is to ignore those people. We know where we are going and where we want to go. Whatever they do or say, do not allow it to reach you even if it is coming from the people who are very close to you. You may not be where you want to be yet but with time and experience you will reach your destination. Have faith in yourself, this is the most important. i know that you can prove your critics wrong.
If there is something that I have learn so far, it is that we should never underestimate or downgrade anybody. Sometimes we see people acting weird and we judge them without knowing the reason why they act like that. We judge them because they are different compared to everyone else around us.
But when we dig deep, we tend to see that these people are really nice people. For sure they can be drug addict, alcoholic and awkward but trust me! If you are willing to see something good in them, you will see it. This is a fact people! Talkless of what you may say or thing about it. I believe that we should never give up on these people as well as it is never too late to change. Sometimes they just need a bit of confidence and trust and here we go. They get on their way to do great things already. And afterall, we need all kind of people to make a great world. Sometimes we do not understand them for shoes but sometimes we need to walk in their shoes as well.
Everything happens for a reason they say! I am still wondering what can be the reason and I haven't find an answer yet. Sometimes when I think about I say maybe things happen for a reason for real but on the other hand I say to myself that we have to make things happen. We have to fight for what we want. I believe that we are the only one in charge of our present life or destiny.
We live in a world where we always get caught up in our own world. We are just there being in our comfort zone and once we get out of it, we panic and then we start worrying. We are often so caught up in work that we tend to forget about our friends and families. We forget how to have fun like we used to do before. For sure money is something that is important for survival nowadays but to what extent should we go after it? Some may say that money is never enough and some may say that they want to be a billionaire. But to what extent are we willing to go for money.
Last week I went to Melaka and to be honest with you here it is my favorite place in Malaysia. If I am to mention all the reasons why I am so fond of Melaka, words will not be enough to describe why it is so. But today I will try my best to give you the different reasons why you should go to Melaka.
First of all, Melaka is completely different from any other places that I have been to in Malaysia. The lifestyle over there is just absolutely awesome. At first the place seems to be a bit crowded but that’s the beauty of it. Seeing a panorama of people going to and fro around the area is just amazing. You will get to meet people of different races and ethnicity. You will instantly get new friends as well. Myself, I got a lot of friends from France over there.
My best friend is someone who is very talkative. He likes to take initiatives and he has a kind of aura that attracts people to come and open up to him. When he meets someone new, he can tell to that person exactly what perfume is he using and what brand of shoes and clothing he is wearing. I will not hide that every time he does that, the people go crazy and are instantly fond of him. Mostly girls! Ha-ha! Well you can say that there is a beauty in everything that he does. From his dress code to his eloquence!
Sometimes, we wake up in a good mood as well as in a bad mood. Did you realise that when we wake up in a bad mood almost everything goes wrong throughout the day. Even from the very start everything tend to go the wrong way. Maybe our alarm clock fall down or we break it or we just fall off from our bed. Then we turn out to be late to work as we are thinking so much about what if we are late. At work or at school as well it seems that nothing is right as well. So obviously here, we just got a bad day and there was no fun in it.
The swedish girl. Well what can I say more about her apart from the fact that she was unbelievably awesome. I met her during in a kind of weird situation and the story ended up in a weird way as well. I was in Rodrigues Island and I was about sixteen years old during that time. I was walking along the white sandy beach with the sun stronger than ever and the sound of the waves crashing onto the shore. I was quietly waking, there was nobody around except me and I had no idea where I was going until I noticed a silhouette coming from far from the opposite direction. I will not hide that I was intrigued and I was willing to know who could that be.
In this world there are certain treasures that we need to cherish and once we get these treasures we should never let them go. One of these treasures is love. Love is something that can really drive us crazy as well as willing to give everything. Sometimes we misunderstand the concept whereas sometimes we get it right as well. Sometimes we argue and sometimes we have a very good time. All of it forms part of the whole concept including the term that we refer as relationship.
Live your life people! That's what I'm talking about! I believe that no matter what the situation is, no matter where you are or who you are with, you simply got to be yourself. I say this because when you are yourself, you avoid disappointment. You avoid disappointing yourself and you avoid disappointing people.
Merry Christmas and happy new Year to all of you people. Now it is a new start and it is something as well as situation that is really nice. We are all ready to face new challenges and acheive new goals as well as successes. If we are are, I sincerely hope that we will get ready along the way.
Everything that we do in life has a benefit and the core benefit behind is our personal benefit. It may sound selfish to you but this is how it is. Some people happiness might come from money, clothes, a brand new car, family and love. Whatever it is, it makes us happy! There is nothing wrong in seeking happiness. Nonetheless, there is a way of doing things. There is an ethical code in doing whatever we do. Let's make sure that we do things that will not leave a staint on our happiness. If we are doing something good for ourselves, let's be genuine and let's not use, manipulate and hurt others. There is nothing worse than having your empire being constantly disturbed by guilt and remorse.
Hi everybody! I hope that you are all doing great. I am so glad to be here as usual. Well, first of all I have to apologise for my absence. I was having some health issue for the last week and trust me! This sickness made me feel like I will never see tomorrow. Anyway! Despite being still sick, I started missing you guys already and just wanted to pass by, check on you and say hi!
You are so close but yet so far! There was a time when you were the one who were removing my doubts but since you've left me you have reinstalled that doubt. Every single day I have been waiting for you. Now that you are back, I am scared! Scared about our so-called love. I love you but do you feel the same? Before your departure everything was so great! Now that you came back everything seem so different.
I have no idea what is to come but what I am sure of is that nice and big things are already coming. During the time where we tend to feel discouraged, good things tend to happen suddenly. Nonetheless, we got to keep our feet to the ground. Out of nothing, we are starting to get our rewards. Out of passion, we are starting to harvest the fruit and out of hard work, we are starting to see the results.
Everything that I have written so far, everything that I have acheive so far, everything that I have been doing is only because your smile has been guiding me. It may seem to be madness but that's the reality. There may be a bridge between us and the sky but we will get through it. I know that one day I will get back to you. It can take two thousand years or two years but we will get over it
Sometimes I really feel that we live in a world of lies and illusions. While we are growing up we are taught to listen to our parents and be obeidient. Most of the time our parents will tell us very nice stories. When we asked questions during that time, our surrounding most of the time will ask us not too ask too much questions. Now I understand why! It's because life will give you the answer.
Life sometimes has certain ways of testing us. There are ups and downs! Very often when life brings us down, we tend to feel discourage. When we face difficulties, we prefer to abandon our goals and focus on something else. It is ok to fail sometimes. this is how we know our limitations and strength. However, it is not ok to let go too early and too easily.
Over and over again! Thinking about someone for who you care and who cares for you! It is amazing and sad at the same time. The reason is because when you think about this person you are happy and thinking about having a future with her or him. But you feel sad because the particular person is not here with you.Thinking about all the time that we are wasting while not being with the one.
Hello everyone! I have been thinking lately about relationships and I can tell you that there are a lot of advantages of being in a relationship. It is always nice when you are with the right person. isn't it? haha! well, today we are going to outline few advantages of being in a relationship.
Hello everybody! I really hope that you are all doing fine! Well, on my side everything seem to be awesome for now since I kind of have a girlfriend! haha! Can it be true? To make it short here, two nights ago, my friends and I were have a few drinks at a bar and we were talking about few crazy reasons why our girlfriends got mad at us. And the reason sometimes are just crazy and funny. Today we are going to break this down people! lol! I am so excited to be here today! hahaha! Let's get back to business here!
High school! well high school was and is still amazing people! Make the most out of it while you can. For sure there were good moments as well as bad moments. But when you think about it, you cherish all the moments. Personally, I have a lot of good moments from high school. So cherish those moments while you can.
Differences between men and women are sometimes very obvious. Despite the fact that there are individual differences, men and women have certain character traits that distinguishes them. Without generalising, today we are going to break this down people! haha!
Love is really amazing people! Love is a special bond that unites two people together. when we talk about love, we think about relationships and couples. It comes through different aspects and forms though. Today I want to share the different couples that I can see around me.
The kind of pressure that the society put on ourselves nowadays is huge people. I mean really huge! what is going on! It is sad to say that but there are certain things that are hard to understand.
Life can get complicated people! There will be always up and down! there will be always rise and fall! what matter is what do you do about it. When you fall down, do you just stay there or do you try to get up? When you get to the top, do you just chill there or you try to stay there?
Let's hope that soon everything will get better in New Zealand. There has been an earthquake that has happened and it was a really powerful one. Some areas have been really damaged according to the news. I have friends there as well and thank god they are all fine! Hopefully everything will be back to normal soon.
Hello, everybody! I hope that you are all doing great! If not please cheer up! We do not have time to feel down people! Find to enjoy every step of your ride. Well as you can see, I am starting to change things around on my side. There is a new look, a new website. But sadly it is still a work in progress and there is stiĺl a lot of rooms for improvement. I have to apologise in advance for any inconvenince.
Sometimes, there are emotions that you cannot control. A lot of times, people say that distance kills the love that we have for someone. However, there are exceptions. However, distance can be in our favour.
It takes time and distance to realise that you love someone. With distance, you get to know who really loves you. I met a beautiful girl few years ago. Despite that we are from the same small hometown, we never got to meet each other there. But life has surprising ways of giving you nice people thag that you can rely on in your life. So many times I asked god to allow me to find love. But destiny has decided that the contrary should happen. Love found me!
Friendship is a good thing when we do it for the right reason. In fact, you do not need a reason to be friend with someone! you can be friend with someone because you like the way they do their things or you share the same mode of thinking.
According to me, friendship is something that comes from the heart. It is a written contract from inside where you say to yourself that you will be there for someone no matter what the situation is. So many times we see a lot of people together as best friends and then suddenly everything collapse. Most of the time, it is for silly reasons.
There is no place better than home.It is true that when you live abroad you may have fun, money, a great job and a lot of friends. But the thing is that home will always be home. Sometimes you will sit down thinking about your friends and family and say to yourself what are they doing.
The kind of love that you get at home is not the same. It is just beyond our imaginations. So many times we take what others do for us as something small. What I mean by that is we will wake up having our breakfast ready and everything just follow up like that. This is our daily routine and we do not appreciate what we have enough. It is only when we leave the nest that we realise that doing those things is not compulsory and not easy. At that moment then we realise that we were living like a king all this time. Here I am mostly talking about the family situations.
How deep is your love! how deep is your love for the cause that you are defending? how deep is your love for your family? how deep is your love when it comes to your job? how deep is your love for success?
If any of us is doing an activity, a job, a passion or something that we want to have, then we have to ask ourselves how bad do we want them. Because when we put love in everything that we are doing or about to do, there is no way that we are not going to succeed.
Sometimes the least of your priorities is the only thing that is able to lift you up. Let me try to explain to you! There is always a time when you feel down. In no matter what we are doing, there is always a time when we feel down. We feel down because we are tired! We feel down because of the struggles! We feel down because of the setbacks. But we are always able to come back. We may fall down a lot of time but we get strength to get up and fight back.
I am in a state of mind where success is everything now. It is really hard to get the life that you always want but I am going for it. Its either I will break down this puzzle or the puzzle will break me down. No matter what happen, I am going for it. I am going to have my dream life.
Sometimes we may feel that we are stuck and that there is no way out in a particular context. But trust me before any problem has been created, the solution has already been created. So no matter what it is, what has happened, what is happening and what will happen, I am going for it. full house!
Drunk people are nice and interesting people most of the time. They are really funny as well. lol! I saw a drunk guy yesterday and that made my day. It made my day in the sense that the guy was all other the place and it reminds me as well about the moments where I have encountered drunk people.
When we talk about drunk people also, we realise that they have different personalities.
Halloween is coming people! Nowadays, halloween has become something global. It is like the whole world is celebrating it and people are going to party everywhere for halloween. Even from where I am now, people around me are just getting excited about it. however did you ever wondered where did halloween come from and why people celebrate it? Nowadays it has something that is very commercialised and where the kids enjoy themselves. but matter of fact, it was not always like that.
Well well well!!! hello beautiful people. Today I am really excited to be here with you as usual! lol! So basically today I want to share with you what I have been up to and how we can help each other.
So, I have just created my patreon profile. For people who do not know what patreon is all about then let me give you a brief explanation. Patreon is just a platform where you can follow artists and writers. In doing so there are exclusive services that you will get from the particular person in exchange of $1 or more. So in order to get a better idea about what I am talking about, make sure that you clink the link below:
Today i woke up with a lot of questions in my head. Despite that I know the answers already, I still kept thinking about these questions. I woke up today thinking to myself;
Who am I? where am I? who do I want to be? and where do I want to go?
Well! I have the answers already and they are very obvious to me. However, why did these questions got stuck into my head since this morning? I was even asking myself whether I am insane! lol!
Hello everyone! I hope that you all had a great day or are having a great day. Today I want to spread some love to you all! If you have had a bad, then just remind yourself that tomorrow is another day and that you will get other it. By next week, all your sufferings will be history. For those who are expecting a great day ahead, then good luck with that one. Just stay positive no matter what happen.
I love to talk to people a lot. Yesterday I definitely got a new friend or new friends. True story here people! We are friends on facebook for a few weeks now! He always like and read my stories. So it was already as if he knew me already! But we never had a private conversation. If you get what I mean! So he messaged me into a pretty simple way!
"Hi! How are you doing?"
Eventually, I answered him and from there we got to have a very nice and awesome conversation. We were talking about random stuffs as well like how was your day and how is your family? Then the conversation took another way round into an entertaining and informative one.
Where do we start here? Hey yes I know! Long distance relationship! Well! Long distance relationship can be a really nice thing depending on how you go about it. It can become a nightmare as well. Today I want to break this down for you people.
Sometimes, when couple have to be separated from each other for usually a lot of time, they prefer to stay together rather than breaking up. A fact that I will not deny is a pure act of love, understanding and optimism.
Love! What is love to you? What is love to me? I have absolutely no clue. The way that ı see things now is that we are being train to be good dates. Yeah! you may tell me that it is always good to have someone to compliment you. It is always good to know each other. It is always good to receive flowers. Yes ı am sure that you will have a good time with that particular person. There is no doubt about that! But to what extent are all these things being done in a genuine way? When you look at the divorce rate nowadays, the percentage is absolutely astonishing. Well! Nobody wants to be a divorced man or woman at the first place. Unfortunately, the divorce rate continue to increase. The amount of lone parent family is just huge.
There are definitely some people who just brighten your day without doing anything. These people are generally the kindness and the most amazing people. These people are the one that will always have a smile on their face no matter what the situation is. These people are the people who will be able to see the funny side of even your silliest jokes.
I met a friend like that yesterday and while writing about it now it makes me laugh. I am sure you are curious about what we were laughing right now! But before going further i want you to know that the situation may not make you laugh. But i will try to describe the situation to you as much as ı can.
Time is just passing by and ı am not yet where ı want to be! Damn! But ı am confident that everything will get better very soon. I am one step closer day by day people!
As for now ı am thinking about my life. I am thinking about my past. I remember all the moments as if it was yesterday. These memories are what drives me actually. These memories are what have shaped me. Whether they are good and bad memories, they are beneficial to me. Why?
The reason is just that bad memories has shaped me and made me stronger and good memories give me energy to move forward.
Seriously i do not know what to say right now! I have a friend whose leaving the country in two days time! She has finished her studies! I am glad i knew her.
Our friendship is just awesome. We have this kind of connection that makes us very comfortable around each other. But the thing is that i did not thought that her departure would make me so emotional. We threw her a farewell party yesterday and it was one of my friend's birthday as well. We were five of us. We are so close despite that we all come from far and from different countries. We had a dinner all together then we went to enjoy a bit. We enjoyed as if there was no tomorrow to be honest.
Kids can be really amazing sometimes. Last time I met a three year old kid with her grandmother. She was just adorable. I even took a picture with her despite that she was a bit shy. It may seem weird to you but i felt like a father to that kid. What has strike me the most that particular day is that she was the one at the counter. I was taking a room in a hotel and she was the one recording my entry, taking my money and giving me back my change. I was really surprised because at this age she was already very smart. Do not get mistaken, the hotel belongs to her family. it was not something like she was forced to do. She was doing it because she loves doing it. This is something that we as the grown up ones should learn.
Damn!! There are some people who are definitely born to be late! Mostly my friends! Lol! These guys if your are in an emergency and you are about to lose your life, you should definitely not wait for them. Hahah!
Since childhood they were like that i thought they would change but they never did. Here i am not saying that i am always punctual but if i am late i will let you know and i would me most probably late for five minutes maximum! I don’t know whether you can relate to what i am saying here but do you have friends who always give you these responses when you call them to ask them where they are. They are as follow:
well well well! today i want to thank you all for reading my daily posts. i know that sometimes it can take a lot of your time but the most important thing is that you enjoy and learn something from it. hmm! i hope so! well so far i have reached more than 10, 000 views and i am so glad about it. i would not be able to make it without you.
my biggest wish right now is that we grow up together and exchange our thoughts to one another which will build a bond between us. but i can already feel that we are already starting to have a great bond with all your comments and reaction. seriously i would never thought that you would even think of reading my stories. however, as usual life turns out to be pretty much surprising. as we always say:
What have I done today? Honestly speaking? Nothing! I woke up today listening to Bruno Mars! Ha-ha! And guess which song? No idea? Lazy song! Damn this song is just really awesome! It puts you straight into a lazy mood.
So, the first thing that I did as soon as I woke up is taking a look at my phone. Then I took my shower as usual. Grab a cup of coffee! Then opened my laptop! After spending a few hours on Facebook, I ordered a pizza for my lunch! I was thinking about doing some drawing, and then I said to myself;
It is amazing how some people can make your day better. There are some people in our life that we cannot deny that they bring joy to us. It is just an undeniable truth.
I have known a lot of people so far and very often I think a lot about all these people. When I think about them, most of the time I just burst out laughing by myself. I laugh because we have shared so many memories together. The good memories as well as the bad ones!
You need to lose yourself to find yourself. This is how you will know who you really are. Dare to do something unusual or out of common. In that sense you will know whether you like it or not. So many times we look at things from far or from an eye bird view. So many thing seem to be difficult from outside then when we try it, we can see that it wasn’t that hard. It goes the other way round as well. When I am saying that I am referring to something new that may be good for you. I am not referring to stuffs that can be detrimental to your life. I am sure that you get what I mean.
Yesterday night I was having a conversation with a wedding photographer. We were talking about how does she look at her job and so many stuffs that revolves around wedding. It is always nice to get to know from which perspective a wedding photographer looks at weddings.
From there, we get to a part of the conversation that went really deep. She was telling me that she does this job for a really long time now and while doing her photo shoots she know which couple will last long or which one is getting married for status and money issues and which one are getting married out of loneliness.
This conversation was really deep according to me. According to h
Take your time to enjoy this very moment. You never know what may happen tomorrow. For me now the end of my studies is near. What’s next? I don’t know. It is kind of a scary thought. I know that I have done something great for myself. I did it all my way with all the struggles and steps. I have faced so many things. But still I have enjoyed so much. Regrets of course I have a few but we have to live with it.
Going to college is a really nice thing as you are in the pre adult zone. You will enjoy it a lot trust me. You will change more than ever. You will get to know a lot of new people as well as a new perspective when it comes to life. I’ve met a lot of people who share all different visions when it comes to lifestyle. I do not really feel that comfortable talking about it but I will share my experience with you guys.
Today I was talking to my psychologist. We were texting each other and I came to ask her about what is it likes to have a kid? What is it like to be a parent? And she asked me!
“ Are you going to be a parent soon?”
Of course I am not going to be a father soon! So, I told her no! I just ask her this question out of curiosity.
Well! The answer she gave me was quite neutral to me and I perfectly understood her. She told me that it depends on people. Some people may see it as a job that is hard to do and some people may see it as a blessing. A blessing! In the sense that a child will bring a lot of happiness in their house!
When it comes to who we are there are a lot of things that we need to take into consideration. There are certain things that are key to shape us such as norms, values and beliefs. These three things vary from time to time, place-to-place and society-to-society. Norm is something that is considered as normal in a particular society. For instance, the kind of clothes that we wear. Then there is value. Values are the behaviors that we consider as right such as help the needy. Then there is belief which what mostly we have faith in it and consider as the right path.
Here is the love story of a friend of mine. He is one of my best friends in fact. He fell in love with a very beautiful young lady name Amelia. Amelia is a very nice and understanding person. This is the reason why we are good friends as well. Amelia has been dating my friend for the past three years and my friend has finally proposed to tie a knot with her. Of course she said yes!
Today I want to share how I fix my problems any time I get into a conflict with someone from my surrounding. Fixing problems for some people is a big issue for some people. But today, you will get something that can really be useful to you.
First of all, you need to observe! Observe the problem and the person that is doing something that annoys you or affects you in one way or the other. After you are done with your observation, wait for a moment where you are in private with the particular person. Once you get to that point, you can share your observation to him or her and in a diplomatic way. You need to make sure that you do not get angry or raise your voice in order to be able to continue with the process.
Recently I was with one of my friends. We were having a great time together and somehow through our conversation we came to a point where we ended up talking about love. We always love to hear and talk about each other’s love stories. In a good way of course! At a point of time, my friend asked me the following question:
“What is your best love story?’
Well! Here is the thing! The way the question was set up is in a pretty simply way. But the reality is that it is much more complicated to me when it comes to that question. The reason is simply because I have had a lot of love stories. However I decided to answer the question.
The story here is about the time when I was in boarding school. The situation in boarding school is when you stay in the school for few months before holidays then we will be allowed to go back home. During that time I met a girl not to say ‘the’ girl. Her name was Aphrodite!
Aphrodite and I had this kind of connection that was really undeniable. Her friends will always tease her about the fact that we will never be able to stay away from each other. The connection was that clear. If there is something going on with me, it can be that I am in a bad mood or sick, she will know it instantly without me saying anything and it was vice versa. This is a connection that I haven’t found again to be honest.
Well! Last night a woman asked me to write her a story. When i asked her about what should i write, her response was exactly as follow:
“I don't know.. Surprise me.! like a little child hearing a story for the first time.. Haha!”
Here is the thing! i am going to try to do something for you.
It was a Sunday evening and there was nothing much to do at home. So, i decided to call my friend mike and ask for a meet up. At that particular moment we were unaware that that same particular Sunday evening would be an unforgettable and fun evening for us. Eventually Mike as usual is open for anything good. I still remember that the following Monday would be the first day of school after a very long holidays To be more precise here, it was the last day of the end of year holidays. Mike reached some safely and right on time. It was around 8:30pm! Of course mike would never come to my place empty handed. Mike in fact reached home with two bottles of wine.
When i was younger i had a quote that i would always use with my friends while talking about girls and woman. The quote was a deep one and we would all burst out laughing after i am done saying my stuff. It is not a wise quote though and now this is the way for me to unquote that quote. The quote that follows can be really offensive and please forgive me for these words. I was young and now i am no more the man i used to be.
“ the woman who will change me is not born yet and her mom is dead already”
It is always nice to have someone in your life. But when it comes to love, you have a choice between accepting that person completely with all her qualities and flaws or accept the person by ignoring these flaws. When we think about love, we always have this kind of perfect picture in our head which is like live happily forever. But one thing that I have noticed is that it is not always the case.
I do believe that when it comes to love, you need to have compassion and care for each other. You need to know when to let go and accept some things that maybe goes against your ways. But be careful here! I am not saying that you must always be like that. But sometimes you need to get loose. For instance, maybe you do not like watching series but if your partner asks you to do so with her I think that the best decision would be at least to try it once. You never know! It is highly possible that you will have the moment of your life by doing so. But to be honest here, when I think about love on a personal point of view it goes to another level.
Living with strangers sometimes can get messy. Today i want to give you some of the advantages and disadvantages of having housemates. As long as you are with the right housemate there is nothing wrong. You will enjoy the experience. And it will be even more awesome if you are studying abroad. If you have the right housemates then you have nothing to worry about. Everybody will be well and fully satisfied.
Waking up in the morning! Doing the same thing over and over again. Is it really what we are best at?
Everyday most of us wake up in the morning. Take a shower, brush our teeth and take a breakfast. Sometimes we do not even have enough time to take our breakfast. After breakfast we are off to work. While going to work we are stuck in the traffic. When we reach work we meet our boss and colleagues. After work we drive or take a train to home. In the scenario where we are driving home, we are stuck in the jam again. Here is our daily life routine.
From now on i hope you can look at your life differently. The things that i am saying are not much but i hope that it is enough. Honestly speaking right now, my hope is your hope. My strength is your strength. I wrote this today because my family and i are in a bad time. The only way that i can at least do something is to write these few lines. Losing someone who shares your blood is never easy. But i still hope. Despite that i am not able to be with them, i hope that they know that i am there for them. I hope that my lost relative will find paradise.
Yesterday I went for shopping with some friends who all happened to be women. I decided to do so because so many times I could hear my housemate telling me that it is tiring to go for shopping with a woman from your area when you are in foreign land. The next reason also was that I had nothing to do and I said to myself it would be nice to help them.
We first of all went to china town. We were in total six of us and we were only two guys. When we reached destination, the group split into small groups of two. We gave a meeting point so that when the time comes to leave, we would be able to meet and leave all together. Nice plan right? Lol!
First of all you need to allow yourself sometimes. When i say yourself i really mean it. Take a break from everything that you are doing and spend some time alone. By doing so, you will get time to think about yourself and about what you really want to do with your life. You will get a clear picture of who you are and enough time to put your projects down on paper. By taking a break also you will get to know who are the people who genuinely care about you and who do not give a damn at all.
After this being done. You have already get all your shits together. Go back to a normal life and work on your goals. If you do not want a normal life, then work towards the other end of it. But please do something positive for yourself and the people that surrounds you. However, the problem with your normal life can be that you have a busy schedule. The best thing that i can tell you is to find some time on a daily basis for working on the thing that you want. For instance you may want to be a professional saxophonist. If u want to do that, there is nothing wrong with it. You just need to allocate yourself at least one hour per day and work really heard on your stuffs which will involve practicing, learning and sharing. We all have the change to be whoever we want on this planet. We just need to give a room and some time for what we really want.
I do not know what to say or think about politics sometimes. Yes! It is a very important institution in our society. But sometimes we take this thing too far. It is just too extreme. So many people are fighting and arguing because of political issues. Where will this lead us? Nowhere! As usual.
Politics has great power when being used properly. It will enhance the development of a country for sure until a certain point. But sometimes when i look at some people who are involve in politics, it just leaves me speechless.
Before going further, our society tend to go overboard while criticising and talking about a politician. But we still have to remember that a politician is first of all a mother, a brother, a son, a father and a sister. We have to at least give a minimum respect to those people who decide to come in front of the society and give a point of view. I know we that we live in a world where there is the majority countries that promote democracy as well as freedom of expression. I know we have to talk but please do respect these people.
But at first i have to say that this issue comes from far long time ago. There are certain politicians
I’ve always been fascinated when i look at a pregnant woman and i still am. The thing is that they look so beautiful and natural when they are pregnant. It is like mother nature that has been personified.
When i look at a pregnant woman, the first thing that come to my mind is:
“this is amazing!!”
The reason is that there is life growing within the womb of the woman. The few kicks that the baby is giving to her and her body is changing for a purpose. The body is changing in order to be able to feed the baby and give him the best nutrition possible. Another good thing is that they do not need to care about their weight much. They can afford to eat a lot. All these combines gives a beautiful result that we can see with our own eyes.
Family is something that very often we take for granted. We often think that what they do for us is compulsory. But the reality is that it’s not. We sometimes forget to show love to them or sometimes we don’t know how to love them.
Let’s make something clear! Very often the first person to criticise our lifestyle is our mom or our dad. We sometimes get mad at each other or we sometimes ignore each other. But the thing is that they are and will always be the first people who will come to save us during our moments of distress. Sincerely speaking, i don’t know how to love my family. I am far away from them which makes the relationship more difficult to maintain. However, i know that i love them a lot and they love me as well. They may criticise my decisions but this is how we roll.
If today you are in a place where you feel you need more and you are not comfortable enough. Please do not get dramatic over it. Your time will come. Your time will come into the most unexpected way. You never know what is around the corner. Maybe your true and absolute happiness is not into the plans that you have in mind.
There are so many very successful people today who came from down. There are people such as famous actors and writers who were once homeless however they are now millionaires. It may seem impossible for you to reach that level but hey that’s what life is all about. Expect the unexpected. You may not see it now but in the future this kind of success may reach you.
I always love seeing mixed couples. Sometimes when i am having coffee in Starbucks or just walking around in the shopping mall and it happen that i see a mix couple, it just make my day. The reason is pretty simple. It makes me realise that we are living in a free world and after all we are only one race which is human race. It makes me realise that the human race has bring evolution and boundaries are minimal nowadays.
These couples are so cute and seem to be so happy when you look at them. They may look different from the outside that is their skin tones or any other physical characteristics but from the inside the are similar. For me it is a very good thing that we have a lot of mixed couples nowadays. First of all, we will discover and understand each other's culture and perspectives a bit more. This will lead to a more open minded. Sometimes things that the media shows about a particular race is not necessarily true. The best thing is to go and discover by yourself.
Being in this world can be really crazy at times. There are moments when we feel low, we let go and we think that everything is against us. Life is hard for sure. At times we are broke and at times we are all caught up in our daily worries. But we need to remind ourselves that after the storm always come the sunshine. Let's be optimistic and positive. Today i want to make you realise that no matter how lonely we feel, no matter how broke we feel, no matter how down we feel, we must always hope for the best and tell to ourselves that there is something great that is coming to us.
Yeah!! I was at the point where i was saying that the only way for us to talk was through face to face communication. As from that time, her friends were my friends too. Bit she was not someone who had a lot of friend. She was kind of quiet compared to her best friend Angela who was not shy at all. As we often say opposites does attract each other.
I can recall the first gift i gave to her. It was an album of French love songs. She seemed to be quite happy about it as well. But during that time i did not really knew how she was feeling about it because she wasn’t that expressive. Anyway, i gave her the gift with my heart. We were quite happy i would say. Even after school sometimes i would wait for her because she had extracurricular lessons and i would spend some time with her.
The next Monday, as a student who is disgusted by school i was going to that place very happy. The reason why was that i would go and see her during lunch time. I passed through her whole block to find her class and finally i got there. She was sitting near the window, looking outside, eating a bread and her bag on her knees. I was like hello!!
As soon as she saw me, she blushed, put her bread in her bag lol! And then say hi back. All these were done in a haste. From there i knew she was shy to eat in front of me and secondly she was really into me. To be honest with you guys it was the cutest act any girl has ever done in my presence. We were together almost everyday and we enjoyed our time together. She even came to watch me play soccer during a class tournament that we lost. I played badly that day. The reason is that i think i was overwhelmed by her presence.
Yesterday night i had a great time with my friends. We were in total six of us. At that time i just woke up as i slept for the hold day. I took a good shower, ate and then jet off to go and meet them. It was around nine pm i would say. I walked there since the place for the get together was not really far.
When i reached there, everybody was already settled and had a few drinks already as well as shisha. Some were drinking coffee and some were drinking juice i greeted everybody and shared few jokes with them. Then they went on to ask me whether i slept well and what have i been doing the previous night because i slept the whole day. My answer was that i was with my girlfriend. They were hungry for some details but i didn’t gave any. Because knowing them, i know that they will tease me all night long with that. After a while i just switched off. My mind switched off without going anywhere. What k mean by that is that i was not paying attention to what they were saying nor thinking about something else. My mind just went blind.
Love yourselves people. No matter what we do in life will never be enough to please people. Its in human nature. We are a race that never gets full satisfaction No matter how much good things we have done, people will always point their fingers on our wrong doings and weaknesses.
Everyday we get criticised. People will tell us that we study too much that we are to fat, too skinny, too short and too tall. Im fine with that. The reason why i am fine with that is because i feel comfortable with myself. The reason why i am fine with that is because their opinions doesn’t count and i am who i am. As long as i am happy that is enough for me.
Should life be that complicated? Why should we work over and over again to get money? Why isn’t it love for instance. We all work hard to get money and food. Yes! It is true that money contributes a lot to make us happy. But nowadays, the methods that we human beings are using to get money goes against our moral values. Nowadays money can be evil and deadly.
Everybody has lost a bond or connection with someone for whom they had great affection or shared a lot of good times together. You may find yourself in this situation with an ex friend, ex boyfriend or ex girlfriend. It is a fascinating thing and weird at the same time. Why is it fascinating, well sometimes we make decisions to move on! Move on people, move on in our career and in our relationships. So the destination is always unknown. You may say that this guy is born to fail but at the end of the day he is the most successful one. The weird part is that you have been friends for a long time and suddenly for no reason or because something shitty happen, we don’t talk anymore. And the weirdest part most of the time is like you can’t even smell or look at each other anymore. Some will even do back peeking but for me i don’t really do stuffs like that. I believe if you had a bond with someone, it was with that particular person and not the whole world. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. No worries! After we will say to ourselves that we don’t care and we mean it.
Studying abroad can be a really nice experience. You will get to know more people, you will have new friends, new activities and a lot of things to discover. When we think about it, all these new adventures seems exciting. However, it has a hidden curriculum as almost everything has it nowadays by the way. Here i will give you some food for thought before you engage yourself into an adventure like this.
Uhm! What can i say about her. There is too much to say and i don’t really know where to start. I can say that we are the exact opposite of each other on almost every ground. She is a nice person but with very strong principle and discipline in life and that had an effect on me.
When i knew her, i liked to party a lot and drink a lot but she is not into those kind of things. Before going further, you can see that i have written ‘Lao po’ in my title. It means wife in mandarin but don’t get too carried away because i am not married yet. It is just that i am not ready. Lao po is just how i call her because everytime that i call her lao po she would just smile, blush and say:
“ i am not your lao po”
The way things are going nowadays is crazy. A kid will ask you for a phone. Yes! A real one! Then when they get fed up of it they will ask you for a tablet. Afterwards, they will ask you for a laptop. Next to the laptop comes the PlayStation. And next to these which are the latest ones which are the drones and the hover boards. The thing is that all those things cost money and they want them badly.
Growing up as a kid was really great for me. I got every toys i wanted to have and any capricious thing that i wanted to have. However, when you are a spoiled kid you always tend to exceed the limit. During that period of time i was flawless and fearless. I controlled everything and everyone around me and i had a problem as well. The problem was that i could not control my anger. But everything changed when i went to primary school. Let me tell you the story as it happened.
Is it love?, is it lust? Or is it infatuation? Is it money?
First of all before going further lets just break those three things down. When it comes to lust, we are talking about how the trends and the media affects the way we value things and the influence that it has on our decision makings about what to wear as well as in term of relationships. For instance there is a stereotype in media that portrays a view of how a sexy woman or man looks like. However its just an illusion and something that media puts in our heads. Trust me we cannot believe everything that media says or put forward. The thing is that things are bigger that this and in one way or the other there is a hidden curriculum behind everything that they portray.
Have you ever been in a situation where you don’t know who you are? I am in a situation like this. I am into a situation where I am confused. I don’t know what to do with my life and I don’t know who I want to be. Let me get it clear for you. There is a difference between how people think you are and who you are really.
I have always had that feeling where I don’t get a sense of belonging no matter what situation I am in.
Dare to make the difference people! Here is the thing. I am about to tell you a story about how did i make the difference for myself and not for anybody else. I grew up on a small island where there is not much happening but where almost everybody is very happy. In my place everyday you will see and taste what we call the beauty of simplicity. You will get to breathe fresh air everyday, pollution is almost totally inexistent, a large lagoon, mountains and white sandy beaches. No wonder they call the island as the anti-stress island. The best place to go.
I used to have a dog before and his name was cooper. Cooper was one of the most clever and strong dog so far that I’ve known so far. He was the kind of dog onto which you can rely only in moments of distress and trouble to protect you. He would never pee or do anything wrong inside the house. Cooper was just an amazing talk. When he will need to go out he will allow any member of the family that he needs to go out or even for food.
Life seemed always amazing to me when I was a kid. I got friends, I got food, I got love as well as a lot of affection from my family. However, the only thing that never worked out for me at that stage of my life is that I couldn’t accept that my actual family was not my real family and I had some other people as my parents. It was like hurting me so much everytime I hear people talking about my story or sometimes they will just come straight to me and tell me that. I is really painful but with time I didn’t care about it anymore.
I don’t know whether this only happened to me but grand parents seems to care a lot about their grand children every time. I have a lot of childhood memories but the ones that seem to stick in my head are the ones at grandma’s house. It is like magic to me. Its like as soon as you reach their house you get a feeling of peace and safety.
Agnessa!! When I think back about Agnessa, I am pretty much intrigued. I am intrigued because I always saw her taking the same bus as me in the morning to go to school and she was always quiet but at the same time she was so cute. She had the kind of aura that said;
“Don’t you dare talk to me.”
Has it ever happened to you to love someone on the spot as soon as you met her? For me it certainly happened. Make no mistakes! It was not the typical kind of thunderstorm or like people say that they got struck by lightning. For me it was more simple than that but yet, the complex love was there.
I met Lucile during a time that I was feeling tired and then It happened that I took a break from school and I went out of the busy lively town for a weekend with my friend Jonathan.
Let's move together at every step!
