So what!!!!!

19th August 2009 17:01:00 “Pens down,” the lecturer says I put mine down recalling the last word I wrote in the exam. “Life” was the last word. I slowly crawl off the chair with my script. I hand in. I ran outside the room, hands held high, looking to the skies. “It is finished,” I […]

Recently I had a chat with some of my colleagues. We looked at some of the global issues.
