Hence, let's see some alternatives that you can use for practicing your…

NEW YEAR's RESOLUTIONS from my point of view

Yes, it's a common theme in the beginning of every January. All of us tend to make new year's resolutions. Just because everybody wants to change his life, more or less. And maybe the ultimate new year's resolution should be to reach a harmony with your life and stop making new year's resolution at all, shouldn't it? 

But, in fact, every year everybody promise to himself stop or start doing something. And me is not an exception. I've fixed 4 goals for this…

After almost a year of being away from MyEC, I started missing it.  But now that I'm back, I feel lost and uncomfortable.  Strangely enough, even after couple of hours of wandering here and there, it seems like I still couldn't find my way around.  The site appears to have changed a lot.  And there's just so many unfamiliar names.  Most of my old friends seem to have disappeared from MyEC as…

I really don't know

             When I was a young boy, I felt guilty if I was late for school. When I went into the school’s compund, I was deeply ashamed of my late. There was no one around me but just one man who opend the School’s gate. He didn’t say anything; no one was watching but I was hunted by feelings of guilt because I was late.

             I was back from other townships where my grandfather lived in that morning. My mother and I visited…
