Letter to a 15-year-old Beauty

Dear 15-year-old Beauty, Let me ask you this: All the days you spend filing and bleaching and plucking, All the nights you sleep naked, curing under thousands of gas lamps, Waiting to be smoother and whiter but not too white, Waiting to be just a little bit cleaner but not overdone, — Why do you try so hard to be hairless? Why do you wrap your body around an iron conveyer belt, Shredding your skin and nails under the rusty bite of a razor, As if your monsoon heart could


Pokemon Go

As I write this, Pokémon Go, has quickly changed the gaming industry as we know it. What makes the game so noteworthy is its use of a technology referred to as augmented reality which blends together a virtual world with the real world.  Unlike virtual reality games, which create entirely digital worlds that players experience by way of fully immersive headsets, the AR technology behind Pokémon Go uses the GPS of players’ mobile devices to layer virtual “pocket monsters” over what appears to be the room they’re in or the street they’re


Can You Not?

When you are in a relationship, every piece of you goes to the other person. It is no longer, ME ME ME. It’s now, US US US. Sometimes, it’s hard… but all great things aren’t easy. If love were easy and fun, everyone would have a boyfriend/girlfriend and would never get heartbroken… can you imagine a world without Taylor Swift or Adele? No, stop imagining it. Now.   I have been in love, but sometimes these things gets on my nerves. Sometimes, I want to throw a pan of grits in


“This is 7”

iPhone 7 announced with water resistance, dual cameras, and no headphone jack A shiny black finish and new home button also make their debut. Apple has officially announced the iPhone 7 today. The new iPhone features a design that’s very similar to last year’s iPhone 6S (and the year prior’s iPhone 6), with a rounded aluminum body. But what’s entirely new is the phone’s water resistance, which means you can get the iPhone 7 wet without worry. Also new is the long-rumored dual camera system, stereo speakers, and a darker



Your voice paralyzes me, Your laughter brings warmth to my heart With one word you can blow my soul all around the world Or tear it completely apart Your smile on your beautiful face, Is the one thing I look forward to every day. I love how you count Every rainbow you see, I love that you will defend me But cannot feel the same way. You’re too beautiful For a dark shadow such as I. I miss the laughter, The kiss, your voice You would be right beside me

The Rainy Day

Looks can be deceiving, but the scenic view of drizzling showers is beyond our picturing power. Despite the fact that, almost everyone likes rain, but if it rains in winter, people dissuade on going out to enjoy the dribbling showers of the rain. Children always come to like the rain, because it is rain that, bring amusement and a present of changing weather. From summer to winter and back and forth. I always like the rain and especially, the rainy day. Because it makes me wonder, how would it look

Romeo and Juliet: Love vs. Lust

We all know the classic love story, or have at least heard of, Romeo and Juliet. The dark tale, written by none other than William Shakespeare, tells the story of two young lovers who, because of their feuding families, can’t have their relationship known. The story ends with the unification of the families (Montagues and Capulets) after Romeo and Juliet kill themselves. However, this traditional tale of love may be nothing more than a tragic tale of lust. While most good relationships take years to build, Romeo and Juliet met

You Know its True When it Hurts

Love is a wonderful thing in life; it’s what makes it worth living we must love one another. Love is something unique and unexplainable, but magical. Most people search for it some try to even force, that’s the thing you can’t force it if it’s there then it is if not then it’s not. The best kind of love is the one that happens when you least expect it, when out of nowhere it comes when you least expect it. When love happens when you least expect it its more magical


The tale of Love and its triumphs has been told over and over again in our society, through books, through songs, through all forms of Art. We’ve been captivated and inspired by all these stories that true love can be found out there. We can all identify with finding happiness in unexpected places. As a matter of fact, we’ve grown tired of the same old pattern of love that’s been painted so many times it’s become like a broken record. So what’s the solution then? Do we continue the cycle

Run or Walk??

There goes a proverb- “Time and tide wait for no man.” Does this mean that we need to run for everything? Or walk slowly down the road until we reach the destination on our own. I was shocked to find out. I thought I was the only one- it was too unusual- way too unusual for someone else to do it too. But as it turns out, there is someone else who is also forced to physically cover up the remaining pages of a book when nearing the end to
