I write to call myself a writer and be called a writer, because that means more to me than words could ever convey.
“No tree, it is said, can grow to heaven unless its roots reach down to hell.”― CARL JUNG I spent most of my adult life trying to avoid suffering. It made everything worse. I spent my days waiting, hoping for my knight in shining armour. The funny thing is she existed, I just didn’t have the courage to... Continue Reading →
The other night I got into a pointless argument with someone after they decided to leave a comment on one of my older posts telling me that I should have my head examined. (A fair point in retrospect.) She said that Trump is a true American unlike Biden who is a horrible person. Naturally, she went on... Continue Reading →
The other night, while I was trying to sleep, I started thinking about the post I wrote last week where I stated that hatred is driven - at its core - by a fear of death. I couldn't shake the idea that I was missing something fundamental. Naturally this started to make me feel a... Continue Reading →
“We must meet the forces of hate with the power of love.”- Martin Luther King, Jr. I’ve been thinking about hate recently. Not only because we’ve see so much of it this past year, but because I’ve felt some as well. Truthfully it got to a point preceding the US election where it broke me... Continue Reading →

Yesterday I ate a piece of chocolate. Just a single square, wrapped in a golden foil. It had been chilled in the fridge. I like sweets this way. The cold and creamy sweetness danced on my taste buds. I savored it. For it was just another fleeting moment in time. . . . SnapDragon is... Continue Reading →
Hi all, I want to talk about googling information today because I made a mistake regarding it the other day. I love technology. I think it is very helpful in a lot of ways. We should embrace it. But as with everything, it has some bad sides as well. You probably heard the warnings against... Continue Reading →
Don’t throw rotten tomatoes just because of the title. If we think about a habit, it’s nothing more than a strong neural path which have been developed and strengthened over the years. So over the years we developed a certain behavioural pattern we apply in social situations. But where does that behavioural pattern come... Continue Reading →
Hopelessness, financial pressure, peer pressure, deceit, frustration, dilemma, anxiety, depression, life showed me everything in between within one month. The month of November been pretty much like a gloom chain for me.
I had a trip lately that involved some heights and I had to face my fear of heights phobia (also called acrophobia). A phobia is basically an excessive persistent stupid fear. Because I want to overcome it, I brought out in the light my old college materials and I found this method called systematic... Continue Reading →
