I know, this seems like a topic everyone knows about and might not even read, but I would still like to share my opinions because everyone thinks of love differently.

Firstly, what is love?

Loving someone means that you enjoy their company, you feel comfortable around them, you feel safe, and you feel as if they are the only person who understands you. Most importantly, you can be you in front of them.

But, when you truly love someone, it’s also important to keep several factors in mind because when you’re in love, you are bound to let mistakes jump…


Have you ever wondered how one becomes a great writer? Whether you’re a new writer, growing writer, or a published writer, you’re bound to ask yourself this question over time.

To be honest, being a professional writer for almost 7 years now, I still don’t know what makes one a great writer but surely, following the simple tips which I’m going to share with you in just a moment, I’ve found a change in my writing (in a good way). …

I fell in love, and I didn’t know it,
I didn’t realize what I was going through,
the rapid beating heart,
the thoughts that lingered in my head,
it was all too much for me,
all too tiring for me.

I don’t understand why people fall in love,
because as far as I know,
it hurts.
it hurts when your heart doesn’t stop upon seeing him,
hurts when he talks to another girl,
or smiles at another girl,
or doesn’t reply to your common ‘how are you’ messages.

Is this how everyone feels?
Because I hate it.
I fell in love…


Trust me, these will surely work.

COVID-19 not only changed the world but the way we think and feel as well. In fact, this virus is related to how we feel, think, and sense things. It brought a lot of fear and anxiety into this world and we have all seen how the once pretty world, turned out to look like hell.

While many were fell weak to the fear of COVID-19 and the impact it made on the people and the economy, there are others who managed to fight the battle of restlessness, apprehension, and terror by following certain…


These are simple yet life-changing habits.

Are you someone who feels that they aren’t being productive enough in their life, or sometimes feel overwhelmed to try new things and even avoid trying new things by assuming that they wouldn’t be able to do it? Well, you’re not alone. We have all been in that state for a while now.

In my opinion, creating a habit can help make your day (or even life) more productive. It can make you feel motivated to do what you were meant to do and help you create a cycle you can’t break from.

If you put in the effort, you are sure to reap the benefits of it.

Being a writer might seem like a walk in the park, but it actually isn’t. It’s like climbing a huge mountain with little to no gear. It’s fearing if you’ll be able to reach the top or not. It’s not knowing what lies on the top of the mountain.

Nowadays, we’re all looking to just leave our regular jobs and become our own boss. It’s kind of like a trend but the reason why so many people are becoming entrepreneurs or in our case, ‘writing…


Sometimes we’re good at it, other times we just suck at it.

It’s safe to say that saving money is a work of art; it needs patience, perseverance, and most of all, you need to have the knowledge of excessiveness and frugality.

Saving money can be beneficial in the long-term process as in the future, you will surely be met with challenges that might require you to live on a budget. Life always has something unexpected for us but we need to be prepared for the worst.

You will definitely thank yourself later for saving money because 1) it will…

Although we all crave a healthy and cleansed body, we don’t take the responsibility to implement this idea just because we are too lazy to get up early in the morning and get some workout done.

Our generation is pretty devastating, to be honest. I mean, we aren’t taking care of ourselves the way our parents used to take of themselves. …

By now we all know who Jacob Blake was. An ordinary man who was just trying to help in Kenosha, WI. He was just like us, going about his day but unlike us, he went through something which no one must go through.

He was shot in the back seven…yes, seven times on the back by police officers — by people who should have protected him, not execute him. It was reported by Kenosha News that Blake was just trying to help settle everything in a domestic dispute.

Jacob Blake, 29…
