Did I put so much emphasis on new things that I forgot to solidify the old commitment ? Continue reading

Life has not been too bad! Really

Life has not been too bad-My EXPERIMENT.

I recently found an experiment on the quote: life has not been too bad! So far. I decided to try myself.

Her husband was a farmer and she was a maid in one of the big house in the village. So life has not been too bad! Really. Continue reading

Swimming with Fishes

Title: Swimming with fishes
Author :Rasheda Ashanti Malcolm

Swimming with fishesSwimming with fishes is an amazing love story.  It takes us to in the foreground of Jamaica where the characters come alive.
