    "The difference between an ordinary life

    and an extraordinary life is only a matter of perspective. Pull the blinds. Look around you. It is a mad, mad world and you do not require ten digit bank accounts to immerse yourself in it. Travel down dusty roads without a destination in mind. Climb a mountain and scream out...

    True To Yourself.

    No matter how old you are there's a lot of temptation in life. Whether it's temptation to have sex, do drugs, or do things for money... They're everywhere.   But there's one temptation everyone always seems to fall for.  And that's the temptation to change yourself for other...

    I always had my head wrapped around the idea of

    getting into a wonderful university and getting a good job and getting married and having a family and being able to support them, but for some reason now, all I want to do is travel and eat new foods and meet new people and get a tan and buy a one way ticket and not come home...

    A murder has happened recently in a building

    that I used to go to for work purposes, which makes me feel close to the ‘scene’ and more disgusted by the crime, because I am quite familiar with the area where it happened. It is such an awful crime, a lot of blood is involved, the motive is vile, a crime that was...

    As many of you already know,

    I have lost both my mother and my best friend to cancer. The thing about cancer, specially in the final stages, is that you know the end is coming, and it leaves you time, sometimes too much of it, to reflect on your life and what really matters. What struck me the most is...
