Life Path – Which Direction?

“…Chatting with people, the amount of pressure that exists on today’s youth is incredible. …Many people consider and pursue the career options that are shared with them by the main influencers in their life: family, friends, school and the media. The problem is that these groups will often disproportionately promote certain traditional career paths, such as doctors, teachers and lawyers. The biggest mistake a young person can make is to…

Cheers, To Life

“This life is what you make it. No matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes… …Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.” ~Marilyn Monroe “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep…

“OLF and TPLF are two faces of the same coin” – Quote of the day

The last thing one may expect in Ethiopia’s comical political drama: Seeing diehard supporter of Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF)—the dominant member of the ruling party in Ethiopia (EPRDF)—defending similarly diehard supporter of Oromo Liberation Front, a former ally of the TPLF, in the struggle to overthrow the Derg military dictatorship, but now considered “a terrorist group” by the ruling and “damaged beyond repair” due to its internal dysfunction and…

Today’s Quote: Someone Who Can Completely Turn Your World Around

“[Only once] in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful…

Quote of the day …

The following quote is from Syd Field’s inspiring book Screenplay, a quote which I think is worth sharing with you, my friends: When you think about it, underneath this skin of ours we are really the same, you and I; certain things unite us. We share the same needs, the same wants, the same fears and insecurities; we want to be loved, have people like us, be successful, happy, and healthy.…

Turning Point: What happens when a book is judged by its cover?

While reading ASSATA, Assata Shakur‘s autobiography, I came across the following section, and I thought it is worth sharing! I wish I could write as descriptively and piercingly as Assata does. ASSATA is an excellent book that I recommend to anyone interested in understanding the “impact of racism on a sensitive and powerful young black woman,” as reviewed by the NY Times. And the impact of this book on me…
