History tends to repeat itself. On the surface everything seems tranquil. Everyone's amicable now that they've got their minuscule share of the land. Some of the land's already been divided and settled by the lawyer. But what's startling to know is that there were more properties hidden by elders unknown to us. Personally, I don't need it for I've got no intention of living with toxic individuals in the future. It's also unwise to conduct business with them knowing how underhanded they can be. Nope, it's not a worthwhile investment of money, effort, time and affection.   I'm distressed by the thought that some people choose peace and change their perceptions whenever they receive cash or properties. Is that human nature? Sorry ... Read More

What drives people to cut-throat with each other? Jealousy, greed, pride and wrath. This is pretty common in large families when it comes to getting their inheritance in the form of money & property (like land) disregarding the quantity.   It baffles me how people can live in duplicity to achieve their goals. Is it even worth the hassle? Is it worth burning the bridges of your kinsmen? Maybe yes, maybe no; It all depends in your principles - your value system.   If you ask me, I'll bluntly say no. It isn't worth the shot. For why should I fight for a legacy which doesn't amount that much when I can just make my own through my sustained efforts.   I don't desire for things ... Read More

      Have you ever been hounded by hungry mobs? It feels irritating at times, anxiety and stress-inducing, right? They feel as if they have every ounce of right to consume your whole being. They think of you as a property devoid of rights; Rights to privacy which is one of the most basic human rights. Although privacy in social media is considered oxymoron. But one can still have privacy by only showing snippets of their life. However, the concept of privacy is lost on people who enjoy attention and those who sought to destroy a persons' reputation whether in social media or in real life. Like I said, there are countless people who can't control themselves ... Read More

In reference to the "Game of Thrones" Growing up, it seems that we always prefer the princess type: Bubbly, so full of life, naive but they do have their downside. They're whiny and expects others to solve their problems like the world revolves around them. I believe that every girl has been on this phase but what happens if you're near your 30's and still act that way? Detrimental, right? Enter in the Queen. The queen is often seen as calculating, unfeeling, stoic but despite all that façade lurks a strong woman capable of loving and supporting the ones they cared for. Often times, women who emulate this strong persona were passed off for the airhead counterpart (ruled mostly ... Read More

I find it difficult to write about love or something related to mysticism. It seems that whenever I tried to illicit an emotion or pen flights of fancy, it always sounds void & devoid of emotions. It doesn't feel like me at all. I'm still in the process of developing my style so hopefully this dilemma will be remedied. Aside from that, I've been contemplating about the excessive use of highfalutin words and its effect to readers. It seems that it is akin to overcompensation of a shallow content; often times, I avoid it. In this manner, I'm hoping to reach a variety of readers. Isn't the point of writing equate to effective communication? If I relate it to the ... Read More
