    I Want to Be Someone Else; Somewhere Else.

    Sometimes I wish I could just take the bare minimum; the things that mean the most to me, pack up my car, and leave.  I wish I could start all over again.  I wish I was brave enough to take the risk to change everything. New life. New job. New home. New...

    To Leap? Or Not To Leap?

    The Rice Cooker

    Hit or miss. Trial and error. Guess and learn. For as long as i can remember, I've never really been able to get the rice cooked right. How hard could it be to cook rice, you might ask? See, with a gas stove, the kind where the flames are very easy to burn things, there is no...

    All I Want To Know Is Why?

    Do you ever look at your life and ask why? Why do such events occur and why is it happening to you? I ask myself that each and everyday. Does it mean that I am self centred and I should be grateful for what I have? Every day is a battle for me. I wake up, wondering what the day...
