Book Review: SAPIENS by Yuval Noah Harari

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I really loved the book Sapiens and recommended it to everyone! I’ve talked about it even more at home with my husband. He’s not really interested in books like this, but I made sure I talked to him about it all! 😀 Now he pretty much knows the whole book through me and didn’t even have to read it! I honestly think he’s so lucky but he would beg to differ haha! I couldn’t help it. Sapiens had me totally hooked from the start! I have never read such a thrilling account of humans that covers all the nerdy topics that I love: history, religions, philosophy, psychology, humanities, science and technology! (more…)

Let Freedom Ring

The last exam of my university life is less than 24 hours away. And the motivation I have to study for it could not stoop any lower. With all the excitement of crossing the finish line, can you really blame me?

When you have a lot of ideas and opinions to voice, just start blogging!

I’m a story teller.  Everyday, I make someone listen to me as I talk about how I caught my bus last minute, which YouTube video I watched, why my little brother made me laugh, or what I think about a politician who’s acting up.  Mostly, I find myself victimizing a fellow school buddy for this purpose.  But now that I’m about to finish the final year of my undergrad, it just hit me that I will no longer meet the people I’ve been seeing for the past four years!  And of course, it’s a given that they’re gonna miss hearing about my adventures… 😛

So in light of this sad reality, I’ve decided to join the blogosphere to not only keep in touch with friends, but to also connect with new people who share my interests.  Why not use Facebook and Twitter for this purpose?  Because tweets and status updates kinda suck.  Sure, they tell you that people are still alive, but I believe it’s much more meaningful to read a piece written by someone you personally know or have been following for sometime.

Here, I wanna share the extraordinary lessons I learn from an ordinary life.  I want this blog to expand and mature.  But it can go crazy and then stay crazy if it wants.  It can even go missing and then rediscover itself.  I’ll be writing about a whole bunch of stuff – life, travel, religion, current events, music, or even my random observations as a bystander on the street.  As a matter of fact, I was going to call this blog “The Everything Blog” until my sister told me that it would be really “lame.” I believe her.

Um, someone please tell me why I didn’t start blogging earlier…?  Because I just got really thrilled about it.  Anyhow, I’m excited to have you join me and please don’t be afraid to comment and say hi! 🙂

Welcome to my Blog!

Sincerely,
