Hello everyone!

What a great day to be here in MyEC and meet you all. :)

I remember about my…

Writing Challenge: How I Describe "Darkness"

One day, I opened my eyes and was surprised, even shocked. How could everything be so dark, total black, the darkest black, without color, not even a single dot of light. I tried to sit on my bed. My heart was full of anxiety and confusion.... "I still can't believe this. Am I blind now?". My two hands were shivering and still holding the blanket. I was sure that that was not a dream.…

2018 was a great year to me. Many things happened as changes in my life. Not all of them were good. But somehow there is a great lesson to me.

The big thing was when I changed my phone number due to the broken sim card, my friends thought that I wanted to vanish from their world. lol. [please leave it, it isn't the main thing :D]. This is how I know who the real friend is. In friendship, I always say "do not make a gap among friends". Yes, why? When you have only two…

The morning is so gloomy, and he is in a deep sleep. He wakes up when the sun shines right above the head. Finding his wife and his daughter no more around him, he recalls everything happened all of a sudden yesterday. He closes his eyes for a few minutes more. Afterwards, he gets up, throws on his only black jacket, takes the car key, and hits the road. Crazily thinking of committing suicide, on a highway, he very fast drives his car. In the…

The Proofs

There was a man who worked in an office. He often came to work late, though it was still in tolerant limit. He also went home hurriedly once the working hour ended, at the last second. But oftentimes, he would come back to office after an hour to work overtime.
