The world in which we live is the only world about which our senses can testify. Unless it is made a better world, a fairer world, millions will continue to go to their graves silent, saddened, and embittered.
Still by far the best confession in anime lol (gif is not mine btw). I have just finished Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (鋼の錬金術師, はがねのれんきんじゅつし) and arrived at a conclusion that Japanese animation is the best way to get over dramas.
This month, I have a couple of articles I highly enjoyed reading |discussing with a couple of friends.
In a work-shift where one can only get 5-10 minute breaks every hour, it is normal to hear complaints like “I don’t even have time to pee!” or “I’m so tired.” I blink and I read some pages of a book, or add more words to my piece, learn a Japanese word, drink coffee and sacrifice socialization.
It’s not surprising that this makes it to my list given my growing affection for the concept of alchemy presented in Fullmetal Alchemist.
Somehow, this concept reinforces the idea in the first article.
It was a wish granted by my parents when I was recuperating from appendectomy. I felt like a child again.
Working in a performance-based company has taught me that clothes dress code does not have an adverse effect on how one does well at work.
Ignorance is not included but the list makes sense.
I haven’t read any Pratchett’s work — I know that is a shame — but I admire the fact that he had been prolific before dying two years ago. However, I think using a steamroller is way too dramatic to obliterate one’s work from the face of the planet.
As a published author, I am proud of every star, review (positive or negative), and every dollar my novel and articles earn. This recent case about a book making it to the New York Time’s Best Seller’s list has just intensified this pride. Instead of dousing my desire to write because any nameless writer can make it to the top of a prestigious list, I am delighted that the product of my own night musings and caffeine-induced daydreams is there, fighting a fair battle for me. It is perhaps a turning point in publishing literature: it does not matter what is on the list. What matters is what is going to last.
Handbook of Mortals may have earned a bigger publicity albeit how negative the comments are; it has etched a hideous mark on what most authors have been aiming for.
I won’t even go as far as rating the book with a star. For now. Maybe the writer did her part in creating a wonderful story- I could give her that benefit of the doubt. Then again, I’m a writer as well, a very ambitious one who is easily swayed by competition.
Bosses irk their employees by promoting those who don’t deserve it, so nobody can point a dirty finger at me and expect me not to bite.
