Behind the mask



Are there times when you question what all the efforts you have put into literally everything you have ever done in your life is for?



It is especially distressing when all these efforts do not yield the kind of results the one putting in all the effort expects. Someone told me what her motivation was, she had lost a sense of who she was because it was consuming her, and requested that I publish this to help her heal...

Fear, insecurity, those are monsters and those feelings can kill. They can kill your drive or drive you to your ruin.

Lotteries


Once upon a time, I always said 'I am not lucky with lotteries'...

The European Film festival is held annually in May. Everyday, there is a raffle draw and of course a winner would emerge. Those winners are asked to come on the last day of the film festival to participate in the final raffle draw for the grand prize. I have attended for two years and the grand prize has been a return ticket. In 2013, it was a return ticket by Air France to any destination in Europe while last year, 2014, it was a return ticket by Turkish Airlines to any destination in the world.
