Loneliness

I’ve been thinking about writing a post on loneliness for some time, but I just can’t find the words. Perhaps because I’m surrounded by so many people that it seems weird to confess that I’m lonely. And it’s really starting to bother me as this really isn’t how I imaged my life would be; and perhaps not how others perceive my life to be. After all, I’ve got over 1,000 friends on Facebook about 95% of whom I actually do know in real life. Also, my phone has a few hundreds contacts. Yet there is often an intense feeling of […]

Lessons in Ruthlessness

House of Cards is on my radius as everyone (well almost everyone) is talking about season two, just released by Netflix.

X Games at the Winter Olympics

Every Olympics has a few Cinderella athletes and teams; those who just barely made it on a wing and a prayer.

This appeal tugged at quite a few hearts and brought back memories of the original Jamaican Bobsled Team that made its debut at the 1988 Winter Olympic Games in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and was immortalised in the major motion picture Cool Runnings. That being […]

Sochi Winter Olympics Empty Seats

Having watched hours and hours of coverage for the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, what is abundantly clear is that the International Olympic Committee has yet to figure out how to ensure that all the events, including preliminary ones are well attended. This is most disappointing considering the outcry from the London 2012 Summer Olympics. It’s just inadequate for the athletes as well as fans within the stadiums and those watching around the globe. I make this point as having attended a good number of events during the London games, I know first-hand what a difference it makes to the atmosphere […]
