Rolling to paint

Painting is an art activity that beautifies and makes things shine. Painting is fun and mostly when done with a roller. I have learnt that painting is so easy when you master the direction of fibres as mummy calls it. She always shouts, ‘stick to one direction when rolling’! We do it at home every

It’s written biblically about the forbidden fruit that our ancestors [Adam and Eve] ate. It’s always beating the religious leaders’ minds and even threatened to create public judgment on them, but it all comes to be cool when one says that the husband and wife enjoyed an apple.

Saving the Planet

Our individual lives dont mean anything in the large scale of things, because the world is where we all live. Everybody (about seven billion people or more) live on the earth, but we are the only ones benefiting from our own lives, so in order to not be selfish, we should think about the majority

The black blackboard?

The blackboard makes me think of: school. French and Maths! Homework! Writing. A huge whiteboard. The happiness of seeing my teacher. The pleasure of working. The pleasure of writing. Having fun! Doing exercises. Doing geometry. Doing grammar. Doing history. Doing English. Reading. Working with a world map. What is a blackboard? It’s magnetic. It’s white

A flawed perfection

The invisible barrier is apparent. I’m separated from the others, silently excluded from their interactions and conversations, their voices akin to the silence of white noise fading into the background. I am judged by the angles of my face and the scars on my skin. Their faces morphing into ones of grotesque disgust, as they

Hackschooling, Why Not?

Our Demigod Dream

Who are we? The dwellers of earth, is that enough? We can imagine aliens and monsters, doodle them in notebooks, but do we really know anything? The thing we do know is who we are. So when our imaginations look for fantasies, we see only ourselves. We look to our past; we look to our

Imagination over Knowledge

Imagine setting foot, in older times, on the flocculent ground of an alternate dimension; it is a macrocosm, which is utterly different from the one we have always known, despite having been just at our fingertips since the beginning of time. I truly believe that Einstein was justified when he stated that, ‘Imagination is more

In the Future, Children will still use pencils

Mistakes are opportunities to learn

A mistake is an action by us, that gets either other people or us into some sort of trouble. Mistakes can be careless or accidental, gigantic like losing one’s life savings in an investment or tiny like spilling juice over a school essay.
