Dreaming the Impossible Dream

I have one of those big dreams that one can say to be too unrealistic, considering my circumstances. Yet I continue to hope that I would be given a chance, no matter how little the possibilities may be.

You may tell me that all the hindrances are just in my head and that nothing is impossible. That if I really wanted it, then I should just go for it. That even if I do not succeed the first time, I should just try and try again. Believe me, I would if I could. Then what is stopping you? You might ask. My height. What? Yes, my height.

Date a girl who reads

“Date a girl who reads. Date a girl who spends her money on books instead of clothes. She has problems with closet space because she has too many books. Date a girl who has a list of books she wants to read, who has had a library card since she was twelve.

Through the deserts of Egypt

My mom, becoming a history teacher just a couple of years ago, has taken interest in buying various history books be it brand new or second-hand. Whatever the state of the book is though, I find it very informative and full of pictures just the way my mom likes it. She likes the books (if possible) to contain lots of images because it makes understanding easier and I too realize that with these, I get to visualize the event or the place itself as if I am there as well. Upon returning to my home, I saw that her collection has grown and this has caused me to start reading them. History is and will always be interesting because it tells of stories passed through the ages. And I like good stories. The factual facets of every topic does not bore too as it adds to my knowledge. It always pays to know some trivia. It makes you appear very smart especially when in conversation. Haha!
