Book Review: The Four Legs Of The Table

It’s true you know, that phrase: “Not all readers are writers, but all writers are readers.” I can’t express with words just how much I enjoy reading. Being an aspiring novelist, I challenge myself to read genres that are outside my comfort zone. I find reading enriching, for so many reasons other than a good…

How to be single

The end of suffering

For decades and even centuries, I think the humxn race has been able to at least agree on one thing and that is, that something somewhere went terribly wrong and that that something needs fixing.
