Step into the imaginative realm of my mind, a writer whose existence is tightly intertwined with the flourishing landscapes of their own mind. From an early age, I discovered the comfort and solace of residing within .
As the archeologists carefully opened the mysterious box, a sense of anticipation filled the air. The lid creaked open, revealing an ornate mirror within. Its surface gleamed, seemingly unaffected by the passage of time. Little did they know, their discovery would unleash a malevolent force that threatened to drive them to the brink of madness.
My name is Samuel Aziz l was born, but l know not about my parents and my country. All l know is my lot in life was as brittle as Jenga pieces, l fought to get one meal per day if it was a good day. l have seen my friends fall into drugs and killing just to survive, here your life is as strong as your luck and as fleeting as your hope. The promise of going to a new country and starting a new life keeps us going, at some point dreams are the only food we fed on for some nights until we had ravage in bins for lefts overs. We had become immune to diseases not because of any medical help but because any sickness is death to us so our body became strong from our will to survive. I closed my eyes to see conjured fantasies the future l dreamt about only to be awoken by someone fighting or escaping the police. This was my life for a time, one day we heard people were crossing the border to other countries to start a new life and we made a goal to save enough to reach that goal. So we stopped cars to wash them and took cash that had been dropped under the street code number 2: finders, keepers. The streets to its occupants have in own system and laws, you would do well to follow them. After a year of careful preparation, we were ready to go, unaware of the dangers that we would face, hope had rejuvenated us but blinded us as well. We set on our way eager to arrive at the country that would change our lives and our future, but the truth was to come in time. When we arrived at the border, since we were entering without any papers, we had to go through a river that separated us from our goal. Deep as it was we entered anyway, no turning back became our insignia to fuel our intent. The harshness of waves pushes with great pressure and we were almost throne adrift but years of bathing in dams had given us the skills to navigate the river, and so we did until we reached the end of the river. We had finally made it, we began to set towards the nearby city new Weaverville and by near meant 100 km away. So it took about 10 days to get there since we had little food and constantly got tired.
The songbird and the warrior.
I hardly fly well,"l was born with one wing too short".l cannot sing but l am songbird, constantly ridiculed by my peers, to them l am freak. Our family travels to battlefields to sing songs to dying warriors to guide their souls to rest.l am afraid of blood, but l go to please my family and onlookers. This life is but l cage l cannot leave, things expected of me l have to do. My future was to take over my family's legacy and continue the tradition, a future l dreaded.
The running shame
G One thing far more worse to me than my fear of snakes was fear of crowds. l was born with a nuclear level of fear of snakes and crowds and every time was near the two my body would shake with fear and soon after a moment of mental blankness. I don't know maybe it was the sudden glances of eyes for the crowds or how a single snake bite can kill a man that created these phobias. Anyway, l was still at a young age at the time, and my Zimbabwean family liked to travel around visiting tourist spots as a bonding experience for the whole family.
This story l was told by major Andrew Yang .A old story he once told me after a few drinks.They once was a small boy who like many people had no direction in life, so he just followed what everyone was doing just to fit in .One day his father suggested he join the army and serve the country, "this was great because lost people find direction when they do things bigger than themselves his father said".This made the the boy very happy.What was his name l asked, the major responded " the boy shall remain nameless", "ok". Then a few months went by then he enrolled into the army.This part of his life was full of soul breaking training , day in and day out.The training seemed to get tougher every time and the whole body would be in agony, this went on for years with few missions along the way, slowly climbing the ladder and status.After all the pain he reeped what he had sowed, and became a senior major officer leading a few maned crew into special missions.All seemed to fall in place and he had finally found a calling that was noble.He even was awarded many medals of honor for being very good at missions and saving countless lives.
The lover l can share.
When l was young, not sure what age exactly but l could not say any words yet. l was told when l cried they would put me in front of a tv and nothing else would silence me faster. This coupled with the fact that my family were tv junkies only added to my obsession.lm a mid 90's baby so l grew up in vadamne,stalone,Jackie chan and Wesley snipes era, and make no mistake this was their era.Action movies seemed to dominate mostly until the early 2000,when a shift started to happen. Tv shows started to gain more flavor in people's eyes and other genres started to gain their footing as well.Soon after a splurge of variety entertainment was unleashed and it was upto your choice what you wanted to watch, and for a while it was amazing.However a lot of tv shows and movies are out in the mainstream now and a guide is needed to find quality from the quantity.In my slightly biased opinion l share my ideal library to those are willing to consume it.l as fan of the questionable finale of game of thrones can tell you if you loved not only the complicated storyline and the medieval setting and slight fantasy of game of thrones, then look not further than Vikings.It is history channel's show about viking history mixed with fiction .If Jon snow's underdog story and rise left a mark on you then ragna lothbrook will surely rekindle your flame.It has kingdoms and betrayal, and even female bad ass warriors "shield maidens". It sits on 6 seasons last time l checked and l promise it is a must watch.If somehow you cannot get enough of vikings there is also the last kingdom now on Netflix .It has Viking life retold in a different way and the ties with England history is there as well.Understandibly medieval-type shows or movies have people asking for more because it gives you a sense of understanding of the past and the contrast with the modern age leaves you feeling happy to be born now.Moving to a different setting of fantasy there are shows and movies for superhero type, marvel and dc which are usually blockbusters and high budgets.If you like dc or marvels films and shows then look no further for a good alternative than the boys.I recommend if like me having seen superman with all that strength you wandered , what if with all that power superman becomes evil what would happen.My answer was given in the form of the boys ,were they shed light to the practical things that might happened if the wrong people were given superpowers.Its blood and gore is on a mortal kombat level so l advise not eating while watching this one.Maybe its too much gore and for the first time you might want to start with the localized version of avengers the defenders.The defenders is low budget but it still packs a punch,with a blend of superhumans from different areas come together and the rest will be too much of a spoiler.Lets move to a different genre, Romantics and comedy are not as popular as action movies because unlike action movies the story takes more than 40 percent to make it good .If it lacks a good story it easily becomes boring as to action movies were a poor story can be saved by well-made action scenes.
Millennial wisdom :
It is well known and in this century slowly becoming a fact, that people are gradually increasing their knowledge consumption and with interconnection of people and overflow of information from the Internet.There seem to be no limit to what one can learn, a utopia of knowledge.However a side effect rather small but increasing by person has begun to surface.The heavenly gift of knowledge seems to be a cup too much for many due to various information to a fact.Many answers seem to surface and hard to find the truth .The information itself needs to be learned to find the actual truth and many fall victim to random and loose truths .The vast increase in information is causing people to become lazy mentally, not the heaven they had hoped.The value of a educated person has become diluted, now reading small facts everyday causes people to think their brains are actually learning.Most graduates for their final thesis will take most of their information online and not even extensive research but a mere copy and pastes we approach the golden age of technology better approach to knowledge is needed , for a blind taste might overcrowd a mind with useless information there no wisdom is attained .The world still takes these small problems for granted, but if they could combat them ,for example in games introduction things that require thinking and problem solving etc. Imagine an average gamer has about more than 9 hours on a game and if all that includes learning aspects therefore more children and parents can benefit .This thought can be applied to anything in our lives .Its hard to full accept the new reality of too much information because it's seems more and more people are divided , too much generalised information and fake truths and some use them to trick those unaware.The questions to be asked are what can we do to better control information?
