One Voice In (Almost) 8 Billion

I assumed it was time for a little storytime, explicitly why I, a seventeen-year-old teenager, raised in a relatively sheltered environment, with no qualifications whatsoever to blog about life, politics and societal issues, continue to maintain this blog.   No greater agony than bearing an untold story in you Above all, it is my passion […]

New Year, No New Me

According to my pessimistic personality, or as I like to call it, being realistic, down to earth and with an already crushed soul because that’s what life on earth is for, I am not in a transport of delight. People expect others to be a bundle of joy due to the commencement of this new decade, […]
