One of the most important identifiers of a habit vs. an addiction is the amount of effort and time required to change the learned behavior of the habit or addiction.

Habit vs. Addiction and Their Impacts

Like with addiction, you may wish to change a… Continue

One day there was a young man sitting and blank gaze leading to a lake. He had travelled to many places to find a happiness, but anything or anyone couldn’t make he happy for long time. In silence, suddenly he heard a nasal voice from behind.

"What are you doing here, young man?" an old man who lived around the lake asked to that boy. A young man turned and said, “I am tired Sir, I have walked to many places searching for a…

It's The Great Pumpkin Season, Charlie Brown!

I was looking through the movies released in 2015, and I bumped into The Peanuts Movie. Imagine my surprise when I saw one of my favorite comic books has turned into a 3D movie. Charles M. Schulz and Bill Watterson are my most adored cartoonists. I learned a lot from good ol' Charlie Brown and Calvin & Hobbes when I was a kid and those lessons are making sense now!…

Consistency is the key of success

Consistency is the key of success and boredom is the main cause of failure. This statement can be applied on all the goals we want to achieve, but now I am talking about English learning process.

Most of the time, we are not consistent, when we start to learn English. In initial stages, we are energetic but soon we lose our zeal to learn. We feel bored. We leave to learn and we…

A Friendly Ghost!

Topic taken from Seeker's 'Writing Prompt-2"

Last night I came across with a ghost. She seemed to be very dejected. She was weeping. I felt a deep sorrow for her and asked why she was wandering between heaven and earth. She told me the following story:


I have been wandering since I have given my life to my love. He had the coolest heart, but there had always been a warm smile on his face. He was handsome. In my eyes he was prince charming, but he had always…

Blog challenge: may/might/could have + a past particle

Yes, this structure can be used to talk about the possibility that something happened in the past. 

For example, you can say 'Expector may/might/could have missed my blog.' (You're not certain whether it was actually the case, though.)

'Could have' can also be used to say there was a possibility of something happening in the past, but it didn't happen. For example, 'I could have been killed.' (But in fact you weren't killed.)

It's such a useful structure…

:( I'm fine :)

Do you know anyone around you, who tries so hard to be chirpy during the family get-togethers, or in a friend's birthday party, but the moment the fun's over they look like a poster child for depression ads?

You think to yourself maybe I should go to them, give them a friendly nudge and say:" Hey pal, everything alright?" But in the end you just smile at them, they smile back and that's that. …
