"Love and all it's complexities is a difficult subject. The love we feel for a child, parent, or best friend, is so different when compared to a wife, husband, or life partner. As a Christian, I believe God puts people into our lives (at any…"

WHAT MAKES YOU TICK?

Some of you may question the title of this latest entry. Incase you're wondering, "What makes you tick?" is an English expression (idiom) that loosely translates to mean, "What's your reason for living? What gives you motivation to wake up in the morning? What's your true passion in life and why?".If the question were literally translated, I'd be writing about pre digital age mechanical clocks that make a "tick tock" sound. Honestly, and as far as I know, there's no antiquated time pieces that…See More

"In my case there are two important things that make me Tick. 1. My family, including watching kids growing up 2. My hobbies. Without hobbies I would die of stereotype!"

Writing Challenge: THE WORLD'S BIGGEST PROBLEM

Posted on September 12, 2014 at 6:08 5 Comments

Honestly, I could rant and rave regarding the problems of our global issues. As a somewhat educated person, who's occasionally traveled and seen different cultures, watched the evening news, and experienced a bit of what life has to offer, standing on a soap box and picking just one subject would be too easy. My opinion through all of those collective experiences and memories is deeply mine and not something to be shared in a blog posting for English Club.

To me, The World's Biggest…

Posted on July 12, 2014 at 4:30 5 Comments

I've been a member of English Club for about two years now. Anyone here WHO's ever met me knows that I'm a huge DR. WHO fan.

Some may ask why I'd chose such an eccentric fictional character as a dinner guest. He's not exactly notorious for having excellent table manners.…

Challenge Versus Fear In It's English Enterpritation. (American Style)

Posted on March 6, 2014 at 8:30 6 Comments

In the often "politically correct" language of American English, we sometimes exchange the word "fear" for the word "challenge"...

To many Americans, "challenge" just sounds better when motivating a good friend while encouraging them to face his or her "fears".

For a brief example, I'll give you two sentences. One is written in the negative context. The other contains the positive. Both…
