Picture thoughts


When I saw that picture of the pawn and its reflection, I immediately decided that I would use it as an avatar here for a while, and possibly in some of my other accounts that I use as semi-official ones.
I also decided to write some kind of article (I'm doing it right now) that would relate to the picture in some way. However, the main reason for this article was still to write something, as it so happens that I haven't been active here for a few months.
I had a few ideas of what I could write ab

Resolutions for the New Year

It's that time of year again.  The old year is departing and a new one is approaching.  It's that time of year when we reflect back on what was and what could have been, but also look forward to what can be.  A time when some people make resolutions.

A resolution is something YOU can do that doesn’t rely on another person.  In other words, you can reach the goal without depending on anyone but yourself.  Find true love, for example, is NOT a resolution - that is a wish, a hope or a desire.  It re

But, if you are self-learning at home




My dear diary,

My teacher said that if I want to improve my fluency in speaking,

I should use new vocabulary, which was learned recently, by writing or speaking.

Whatever it would be. But, if you are self-learning at home and not having tutors or friends.

How to do speaking practice? I asked. She told me that I could talk to myself and read aloud or

do writing practice. At least it would be a diary. That's the reason I am writing to you.

Deep Grief


I was in love with someone. I went away for a while, when I came back she had been engaged to another man. I went through deep sorrow. Of course, the wheel of life must go and you must get used to that. I do not know how to express myself properly but those lines might reflect something of it. Thanks in advance for your point of view:



Someone help me!

Life is hard,

Your words are harder.

I pretend not to feel,

Under the daily tears,

The anguish is clear.

After you,

I remain in grief.

You are the oppre

My fairy tale (The most worthy treasure)

Once upon a time, there was a king in a small country who had three sons. Because he couldn't decide which one he should resign his throne to, he said to his sons, "I will resign my throne to a son who brings me the most worthy treasure." So the three sons went off in quest of it.

Can You Finish These Sayings?

It has become common in movie titles and in everyday speech to shorten idioms and proverbs. As a subtitler, I have come across many instances of such puns.
