I was excited, fifteen, and naïve. I had just been introduced to the world of literary magazines, and was amazed to know that there were so many platforms on which writers could publish and share their work. To a tenth grader whose poetry had previously been limited to her personal blog and the school yearbook, this realization opened up a myriad of avenues in my hopes and imagination. Reality #1: Not everyone will love your work Until the point I started submitting to liter...

When you go on vacation or a long trip to another country one of your biggest worries is if you will be safe or not. This isn’t somewhere you are used to or know the ways of the land. But you do expect that if something were to go wrong that the police and judicial system would be there to help you even though this isn’t your home country. In the Merriam-Webster dictionary, it states that domestic violence is “the inflicting of physical injury by one family or household membe...

A lot of things cross my mind everyday. I am still indecisive about what I want to see in the future. However, I clearly know what I don't want to see. A world ravished by wars. This definitely what I don't want to see in the future. I didn't witness a war myself, I only see the aftermaths on television during the evening news. However, I some how came so close to it through connecting to my grandfather. Looking at his face, and through his glassy eyes I can tell you a lot abou...

My dear friends, I miss you. I miss you. I miss you. The first time I met you I wouldn’t have thought that I would write this in the near future – but look at me, here I am. I don’t think I have ever had a more memorable, intense, instructive, and exhilarating time in my life than during the short time I was with you, and now I miss you with my every bone. We have only been together for two months. I entered the camp one day, gazing into stranger’s eyes �...

What does it mean to volunteer? How do you volunteer and what do you get out of it? Let's take a closer look. Lots of people volunteer only for success, or to look good in the community. But there is far much more to that. Here are good reasons to volunteer: - Make others happy - Confidence and self-pride - Make the world a calmer place and reduce suffering - You like sharing your privileges with others who also deserve them. - You are trying to become a bette...

It amuses me that in the present age, many people still do not know what blogging is all about. They find it difficult to comprehend how you can make a living by just blogging. Call yourself a full-time blogger, and they’ll quickly label you an unserious fellow who lacks vision and ambition. In this part of the world, blogging is still unpopular; it can’t be placed side-by-side with professions such as Medicine, Accounting, Engineering and Law. At best, it should be taken a...

I was recently fortunate enough to attend a political party conference. There I attended the ‘Youth Zone’ and was excited to hear the opinions of my peers from around the UK on various topics. I found myself deeply disappointed with the format however; politicians sat and spoke about apparent ‘youth issues’ while young people were invited to ask questions. The day was almost laughable and summarised by one politician’s phrase ‘I think that young people think…’. Can...

Life was never meant to be perfect. There is some joy in imperfection, in things left undone, in words left unsaid, in adventures left unexplored, in feelings left unexpressed, in pains left unhealed, in moments left unlived. It makes us realize that nothing will stay forever and life is to live with whatever we have got out of our imperfection. Perfect things are most wanted by imperfect beings. Most people live for themselves only, but there are few who live for other...

Did you ever think that a man can establish a forest with all efforts single-handedly? Have you ever wondered that it is possible to make your own forest and live happily with the wonderful nature? Maybe not, or it may sound an impossible task? Yes! We have planted a single sapling, two or more, or maybe dozens in our lifetime. But, that impossible task seems possible for a man, who can be actually considered as a super-man of the Mother Nature and as a whole of the "Humanity...
