Gone With The Wind!

Hey Traveler,

I was about to comment on your comment on my comment on your blog "Americans History - An untold sacrifice", added on 25th Oct.

But imagine my dismay when I found it had been removed!

So I offer you this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to paste your comment on my comment upon this blog, and I'll do my best to give you a well-researched, balanced (ah, perhaps not...), and thoughtful reply.

Best regards,

Jeffrey

Bye High School!

Hi,

I'm back with my new story ^^

I've just graduated from High School and now I'm a university student LOL. I took an architecture major.

But, I really should change it. And guess what? I got new friends with same major.

The first person I knew at my university was Chelsea Pricilia. I met her when…

That's to say, being fearful or afraid of something is human. You're not alone in feeling that - just admit it. Try to face the fear and…

LIFE IS A GLORIOUS GIFT

the condition that distinguishes animals and plants from inorganic matter, including the capacity for growth, reproduction, functional activity, and continual change preceding death is life or the existence of an individual human being or animal that is all in a scientific language.

But for me life is a glorious gift given by god, and we are not enjoying it now as we enjoyed it in the very first stage (childhood), No fear of any competition, we all had only one challenge that to collect…

Writing Challenge: Terrifying Two-Line Tale -- The day we met (A Nightmare)

I'm too excited to get out of the house today, I'm well dressed more than usual as it is the very first day that I will meet the man that I only love.
