The Color Purple

One of my favourite parts of a very unique novel ('The Color Purple'- Alice Walker), winner of a National Book Award and a Pulitzer Price


Here's the thing, say Shug. The thing I believe. God is inside you and inside everybody else. You come into the world with God. But only them that search for it inside find it. And sometimes it just manifest itself even if you not looking, or don't know what you looking for. Trouble do it for most folks, I think. Sorrow, lord.

It? I ast

Yeah, It. God ain't a he or a she, but a It.

But what do it look like? I ast

Don't look like nothing, she say. It ain't a picture show. It ain't something you can look at apart from anything else, including yourself. I believe God is everything, say Shug. Everything that is or ever was or ever will be. And when you can feel that, and be happy to feel that, you've found it.

Exams are the same everywhere

I don't know why I find it hilarious.

No matter which level of educational institution you're in, which continent you're in..it's all the same!

The minutes before the exam where all the examinees are revising, asking each other random questions, talking about how nervous they are..

Entering into the exam halls and going to your assigned seats. A few people realising they've forgotten to get their ID cards or their calculators.

People looking around to see who their neighbours are. Wishing each other good luck.

The examination papers being distributed. A few minutes of paper ruffling and general unrest and then a deep silence sets in.

The drone of the air condition in the background. The footsteps of the exam invigilators. The squeaking and scratching of pencils and pens on paper. The occasional cough, sniff, yawn, sneeze

The sound of so many people thinking furiously. Not saying I'm a fan of exams, but I love that sound. The sounds of many minds at work.

1 Litre of Tears

The only drama that managed to make me cry in almost every episode. This is a must-watch Japanese drama based on a real-life story of a fifteen-year-old girl who gets an incurable degenerative disease that makes her slowly lose control over her body before it takes away her life. This was a reminder I needed to let me appreciate my health and body, and to never let me take it for granted.

It's worth it- only 11 episodes but filled with life lessons!
