Fortnite

The true happiness is in Fortnite.
It is the best game in my sight.
In Fortnite there are dogs, you might get a bite.
When you look at the sun in Fortnite it’s not even bright.
Fortnite is my best game.
Whenever I no-scope somebody, I say damn.

On democracy

Democracy is a type of political system that requires a popular vote to take place to elect the leader of the country and other officials. Simply said, the leaders are chosen by the people. Democracy is almost used everywhere around the world, including the United States, the United Kingdom, and others. Here are some advantages and disadvantages of democracy.

More than meets the eye

Lookism is a form of ideology that is solely based on appearance. People form opinions or ideas and make decisions about something or someone based on outer appearance and this brings a lot of negative side-effects. This ideology affects the current society in many different ways from our behavior, social standards and perceptions, lookism is very ‘physical-based’ and extremely shallow.

Of ethics and manners

Martijn Gerrard Garritsen is a 22 year old, Dutch Producer. He grew up in a musical life of his own. He got inspired after watching Tiesto performing at the 2004 Summer Olympics during a commercial break. Garrix became the number one DJ in 2016. People often disagree on the way he became the world’s greatest DJ at a very young age. Here are a few reasons why Martin Garrix is one of the most well deserved producers of all time.

Who took my time?

Many months ago, I was stalking Vivy Yusof’s Instagram page and she posted videos of a talk she attended on her Instastory. It was pretty late. I had just put my daughter to bed, and because I did not want the sound of the video to wake her up, I watched the videos without its sound. Couldn’t be bothered to take my headphones downstairs either. Watched the video, read the caption to one of the videos, which immediately caught my attention.

Chicken Soup for the mind

It has been a while since I have had some time to catch a breather. The Eid-Ul Fitr break has come at just the right time. While I get ready to rejoice and celebrate, I cannot help but be reminded of the death by suicide of two very well known figures; one in fashion and design and the other in culinary. Yes, I am talking about the passing of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain, both of whom took their own lives out of depression. They are not the first.

Ready, set, GOAL

Football is one of the most merry sports there is. 22 men chasing after 1 ball. But, they all have a goal. Place the ball into the net. That is the goal.

Needless to say, having a goal gives us direction. That everything planned or executed, is with the intention of meeting the goal. Every argument, debate, disagreements, hustling, strategies, all happen in order to meet the goal.

Shiny and New

I was watching a TEDx Talk by Gautam Khetrapal back in November of last year. Mr Khetrapal asked his audience if they had a smartphone. The camera did not show the audience, but by the look of his expression, I am assuming a majority of them put their hands up. He then asked how many of them had the same phone in the past 2 years. Again, the camera did not show the crowd, but through his reaction, hardly anyone put their hands up.

Fight song

We have all been hearing and reading about how our current young generation lack knowledge because they do not read. Abedeen students have reading time. There are times they are taken to the library to do some reading. During these times, they are allowed to ask their teacher for meaning, pronunciation, etc. At other times, the teacher would read them stories. It is part of our effort to create a future generation of leaders who read.

A whole new world

Parents love sending their children all the way to their classroom. This is taken as an opportunity for us to have quick chats with the parents, to hear what they have to say about their children’s progress. Some, leave us in tears.
