Revolution

When I was younger, my bedtime would be at 9:30. I would be tucked in bed by 9:30, asleep by 10:00, with just about eight and a half hours of sleep before school. Sleeping after 11 o’clock would make me feel like I was breaking a rule or doing something very erroneous. I am fourteen…

Rape: The Ceaseless Domino

A number of us wear earplugs when it is noisy, to cancel out any noise around us. However, more often than not, perhaps unintentionally, we do the same with what is happening around us in life. Rape. It is extremely nauseating, the fact that I have to be told not to go out late at…

Pull Down, or Push Up?

The other day at school I had a math test. I had studied the weekend before test, and was, well, decently confident about my preparation. On reaching my classroom, whilst I was in the process of recollecting a formula unknown to me just a few days ago, a friend of mine, a rather nervous and…

You Fall. You Rise.

If you are a person that considers themselves to be successful, if you believe with all surety that you are not failing at something, anything, this article, is not for you. What I am about to tell you right now is an utter contradiction to what the title of my article is. The fact that…
