Live it Right

Life is about making Something out of Nothing at all. If you're able to do that, you're able to do Everything.

Painted Life

Life is like a flower, painted to perfection, yet at the end it wilts, fragile as it is, only the stem left unbroken.

Fallen Leaves

Like the autumn leaves, we fall at times, only to find ourselves blown away by the wind, and thus we reach yet another place.

Why Literature?

9 out of 10 people that ask me what I study in Uni will ask me, "Why Literature?"

Well, I never really thought of that,
"My answers were always, because I love writing, and not Shakespeare style, mind you."
"I love expressing myself in words, writing poems, writing blogs, even short anecdotes."
"I love the way words bring something to picture, it's like a picture says a thousand words, but in reversed, a thousands words paint a picture."

My lecturer once said that "We're teaching humanity in literature, we're teaching the people how to be human."

I admit the only thing I'm good at is my writing (which tops the rest that I am not so good at), and because of that, everyone wonders, what can I do with my Literature in English Studies degree?

Often, I will try to explain that a language degree can take you anywhere, but as times go by, I started to realize I may not be as competence as the other fresh graduates. I will be vying with thousand others for a job position, which I may not like or even know what to do with it.

Life is such that it is such a reality that we live in.
When it comes to money matters, we feel like there's a strong weight holding us back in our dreams.

"What are dreams?" is often the question in the mind of the younger ones.

The older we get, the more we realize that this "Dream" is so not happening, and that everything just goes on in "Reality".

"Literature is in fact a combination of both "Dreams" and "Reality", it's where "Reality" is converted into "Dreams", and "Dreams" transpired into "Reality".

P/S: Do you know, the word "Literature" means the Art of Words.
