It feels funny crawling in here 13 days into 2018. In fact I feel so strange in my own blog, I had to sneak in this way. How time flies. 2018???!!! An extra year. More things to think about, more sad songs to relate to and more time to break people’s hearts. And get heart-broken … More Tough love?
Picture this; paired up couples all over the place, plastic smiles and no Wi-Fi. Some situations make you discover how you’re too single for weddings. Well, there was this one who offered me a seat near her, at the reception. However, she looked like just being polite; no intentions of being friends. From there it was a downward spiral into that familiar smorgasbord of silent awkwardness with her until I recognized her from her personal Facebook page. … More Is Social Media Revolutionizing The Term “Stranger”?

Ashamed of myself, Myriads shapeless shrapnel, Lord, here, my broken pieces receive, Fit me up like jigsaw.
It’s a crescent moon tonight. Or is it? I see a tinge of white-yellow peeking out in the canopy. I’m seated on the bonnet of a March at the car-park; and peeling an apple between intervals of sipping overpriced coffee in a can of Java’s. I know; who peels apples? Well, me.
