Identity Crisis

I was 28 when I realized I was having an identity crisis, with four kids around. I thought it was too late. Although during teenage life I had periods of wondering who I am uncertain if I answered that question. I realized the crisis of knowing who we are is not confined only to a particular stage but on various points throughout life.

But one looks over them all

From his branches can be seen

The vast and treacherous sprawl.

Reading has many benefits; here are 10 reasons which should encourage you to read.

1. Vocabulary: When you read an article or a book you may come across a new word(s) or a different usage of a word you are already familiar with.

2. Creativity: Unlike a TV serial or a movie, reading will make you think.

3. Pleasure: A good book or article is as enjoyable as a game of baseball.

4. History: Other than history books we can also learn historical facts by reading biography/autobiography or by reading books or novels set in a particular period or era.

5. News and Information: Magazines and newspapers not only keep us updated about the current events but about family, living, food, trends, etc.

6. Empathy: This is especially true for readers of literary fiction. The reason being, the incompleteness of the characters turn readers into writers.

7. Reduces stress: A good entertaining novel can also reduce a lot of stress.

8. Fighting Alzheimer’s: A study showed that elderly people who regularly read or play mentally challenging games are 2 ½ times less likely to have the debilitating illness.

9. Life goals: Reading about someone who overcame obstacles may motivate you to meet your own goals.

10. Reading can save your cash: Reading is always cheaper than splurging your money at a pub or watching a movie at a cinema hall.

The Fear of Heights (1 min read)

Hi guys, today I’m gonna talk about something I have feared ever since I was a little kid and still fear to this day, and its heights.

I don’t know why but heights just happen to suck the life out me. Every time I’m somewhere high I start to freak out and panic like a total idiot. But it’s not just about being in a high place that freaks the shit out of me, no every fucking time I see a large and incredibly tall building my heart starts to race at a thousand miles per hour and my hands start to shake and I feel like a complete loser (which I am).  And sometimes it can be really embarrassing, for example, once I was with some friends and we decided to get my friends, little sister, a toy, but the problem (for me, everyone else was fine) was that the toy shop was on the top floor, and there was no fucking elevator. I mean what type of a sick person places a fucking toy shop on like the 100th floor, I mean think of the kid)s who can’t climb up the fucking largest staircase ever.

Another example is when I went to London with my family we went to the London Eye and it was great for me until I found out we had to actually go inside a large round box thingy made completely out of glass and it just happened to rotate around a fucking wheel, and don’t get me wrong that thing was so high I swear I could see the Eiffel Tower from up there. Now I couldn’t back put off going in it as we had already bought the tickets so I prayed to God to help me survive and stepped in the box thingy, now I saw everyone around me walking in the glass box and taking pictures of the view while I sat there with my sweaty hands and racing heart beat next to an old Chinese lady who after five minutes also got up and walked around, and everyone was just staring at me like I was paralyzed or something (although I did act like it so…)

Alright guys I think this enough for now, I hope you enjoyed these embarrassing stories, and I hope they made you feel less like an idiot, cause let’s be honest no one’s as stupid and clumsy as me (yeah I’ll just go and cry in a corner alone now) bye guys and hope you enjoyed. -H

The Water Beyond the Leap (2 min read)

A salmon in the river swam steadily upstream and regressed, then again, swam steady then regressed. The water resisted as he swam against it,but propelled him effortlessly as he regressed back downstream. He swam forward eight feet then retreated five. As he advanced, the water around him began to whir as all the other salmon swam head on towards the nearing waterfall. The rocks towered the water high and caused it to fall with such brute force. He watched the other salmon as they disappeared right above the blurry water fizz.

He was perfectly strange, this stranger was. He was smart and elegant and courteous. He was different and complementary. We fit like jigsaw puzzle pieces. This stranger was perfect until I came to know him. But that’s what perfection is, isn’t it? It is picturesque and Hollywood until we begin to examine it. Like all models, it is bright and seductive, but when we finally gather the courage to look closely, we begin to see its pores and blemishes. Quick to judge, we assume either the worst or absolute perfection and that vision crowds our perception.

There is a magnificent tree outside our back porch.  It’s dressed beautifully for summer in limey green leaves, providing shade and comfort from the hot sun. I adore sitting on my back porch and enjoy the mornings with my friend, the tree. As I sip my coffee, I feel in touch with the beauty of nature and her many offerings that come with each day.

Four Different Types of Writing Styles (6 min read)

A writer’s style is a reflection of his or her personality, unique voice, and way of approaching the audience and readers.However, every piece writers write is for a specific purpose—for example, writers may want to explain how something works or persuade people to agree with their point of view. While there are as many writer’s styles as there are writers, there are only four general purposes that lead someone to write a piece, and these are known as the four styles, or types, of writing. Knowing all four different types and their usages is important for any writer.

A piece of paper on the street, beat up and torn, was attractive for some reason. I picked it up, it was partly drenched; the words were slipping off the page. It wasn’t a love note, neither was it made of words of hate. It spoke of resuscitation, but from what, I did not understand. I read it over and over again, and it remained, dampening my hand. A man bumped into me, his coffee now on my jacket. Watch it, he tells me and resumes his hustle. I forgot New York was my land. Back to the note, I read again, but why can’t I understand? Hieroglyphics shield the page, but language I understand. So I need a translator? Hire him, I can.
