Power to the Peaceful

"If you ever think you're too small to make a difference, try going to bed with a mosquito in the room."

We are children of our age,
it’s a political age.

All day long, all through the night,
all affairs—yours, ours, theirs—
are political affairs.

Whether you like it or not,
your genes have a political past,
your skin, a political cast,
your eyes, a political slant.

Whatever you say reverberates,
whatever you don’t say speaks for itself.

The voice of the sea speaks to the soul


The world spent $1735 billion on war in 2012

It would cost approximately $135 billion to completely eradicate poverty.

 Isn’t that a shocking example of how thing are prioritised globally

Big life choices

So, I may or may not have just submitted an application to spend next year studying at East China Normal University in Shanghai. I can’t actually describe my emotions at the moment; but, it’s safe to say that I don’t think I’ve ever been so in shock and anxious and terrified and freaking excited all at once in my whole life. Hopefully the adventures are soon to begin!
