For one my Media Appreciation lectures we had to talk about a social media platform that came to rise and influence the lives of a large number of individuals, and I decided to pick Twitter.
Before I begun using twitter, I didn't really realise the point of it and I didn't know why anyone would use it - the word limit count sounded so weird to me. I also thought no one really uses it and it is not important overall. However, I realised how wrong I was when I started using it daily and following individuals I wanted to know more about.
The reason that made join this community is so I can discover new artists from different countries, such as: Korea and Japan. Nevertheless, I slowly began following my favourite youtubers and then comedians, until one day I found myself reading news on twitter, debates and politicians' tweets.
So what is Twitter? Twitter is a new media platform that
allows you to “tweet” short messages to the world, within the limit of 140 …
Yesterday I finished reading a fun novel, and here is all about it!
Title:A Boy at the Edge of the WorldAuthor: David Kingston Yeh Genre: Contemporary/Cultural(Canada)Synopsis: Meet the Garneau boys, triplets from small-town Ontario. Daniel the “eldest” is gay, and moves to Toronto with his best friend Karen to attend university. Eventually, he meets David, a bike mechanic whose Catholic Italian mother talks to her dead husbands. Their chemistry is immediate, but Daniel is still drawn to his ex-boyfriend Marcus, a performance artist whose grandfather was a book-burning Nazi. A Boy at the Edge of the World is a rollicking dramedy that explores the compulsive and (ultimately) universal human pursuit of intimacy, sex, and love.

Each time I was waiting for the bus or before going to bed, I would take my phone, open my e-reader and start reading 'A Boy At The Edge of The World'. What I enjo…
Hello Beautiful People, I have just finished reading Orca Rising by Chris Hannon , and here are my thoughts about it!
Ocra Rising revolves around Ocean, a 16 years old high school student who just finished his IGCSEs and decides to spend his summer vacation at a not so ordinary school. This is a fast paced, thrilling novel with an engaging mystery. The characters in the novel are diverse, as they come from various spots in the world. The conversations can help you remember where each is from. For instance, Dante - who is from Spain - slips in Spanish in his dialog. The characters keep you entertained while reading the book, and I just wish that we've have gotten to know them better. The plot contains clichés to the genre, but this doesn't necessarily makes it "bad". I enjoy reading spy book and there are certain clichés I like when present and done well. Some of the plot twists toward the end of the book took me by surprise, however, the ones at the beginning I saw th…
