Holiday Rants

  It’s Christmas day- the time of year when families are said to gather around the fire of a fireplace(or technologically savvy flat-screen television that now poses as the red and orange flickering tongues of flames and burnt bark of the fictional labor of chopping down a tree and hauling its fruit toward home) and exchange gifts with one another in the spirit of love and Christ’s birth.
  When I look at this international holiday carefully, I see a commercialised enterprise of money and food and selfishness. Some people do give gifts out of the goodness of their hearts, which is fine and wonderful, but others just look forward to getting something for free.
  If we really love someone and appreciate them for what they do, then why do we need a specific day in the year to tell us when to show our appreciation? Shouldn’t we always tell others we’re glad to have them around us?
  Of course, this is just my view of things and mentality. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions.
  Christmas really is a holiday for which we should be grateful- a request from me(which is completely optional) is that you look deeper into the meaning of this day and any other holiday or celebration and give the people around you a random “thank you.” Yes, some people will think you’ve lost your mind, and others will be glad.
  If you have a Christmas story you would like to share, or simply want to say something, leave a comment and I’ll get back to it as soon as possible. Merry Christmas.

Wattpad- Excellent Book Site

  Lately I’ve been busy- research has always been a hobby of mine, and it’s always interesting what one can find with no real purpose. My attention has been drawn to and captivated by “Wattpad”, an official app that allows one to read, or even publish books.

  I started off as just a visitor. Since I hadn’t made an account yet, I just picked out random reading lists and began reading from there. The idea of a writer, professional or not, being able to share a book they wrote on this website and to get feedback from the people who’ve read it intrigued me.

  Within a month of discovering the app, my love for writing shone through and I opened an account.

  My point: if you’re a writer and would like to publish your works, download the Wattpad app and create an account. It’s simple and free; which are two of the best things.

  I’ll occasionally share a story from Wattpad that I think might catch the lovely reader’s interests, and post the link here for you to decide whether or not you want to give it a shot.

  If you have a Wattpad account and would like a story featured, or have any questions, just leave a comment and I’ll get back to you as soon as I possibly can.
