    An interesting person you have met.

    So a week back, I went to watch the movie Interstellar with one of my friend. As we went to purchase our tickets I felt a tap on my shoulder. I immediately froze and slowly looked behind; there was this guy with a goofy smile on his face and he awkwardly told me hi. I looked to...

    I just have to share what happened on the 24th

    of December this year. I was in my car with mom and my brother, we were on our way home. On the side of the road, there's this guy waving. Mom stopped and he asked if he could go with us. It was a bad weather, rainy and windy. Mom said she just needed to drive to a better place...

    This might be the internet

    I found out my husband was cheating on me two

    People Do Come Into Our Lives For A Reason

    Sometimes, we don't know why they come into and OUT OF our lives, and sometimes we don't find out until many years later when we can look back and finally see the whole painting, instead of just a few pixels. These moments are precious and enlightening and fill you with great...

    The Story of 'US' from the Individual Statuses We Posted

    First, the disavowal… NONE of this is true. It’s total fiction and in the extremely unlikely chance that anything in this story even remotely resembles truth, I wouldn’t know it. So, please take this in the spirit it’s intended—total fiction—just a fun way of thinking...

    Maybe not in a cosmic way,

    They Come & They Go

    The title speaks for itself. I believe people come into one's life in order to push them to the next level, even if it's only a small favor, when you're down they pick you up, if you need help with the smallest task, you get assistance. Others are there to influence you either...

    and completely take you by surprise. I don't usually like surprises. I'm learning to accept it for what it is though and enjoy the ride.
