Hey, I am a person who likes to think positive about life. There are many things I like to experience, like to do and to see. I like to think, I like to dream, I like to see the sunrise in the morning and also like to see the moonlight at night. I want to feel the music flowing on my face and like to smell the wind coming from the ocean. I also like to look at the clouds in the sky with a blank mind. I like good books and thriller movies. I always wanted to be a great writer, like Victor Hugo and Roman Roland, who have influenced millions of people through their books. I am just doing some teaching, some writing and some research. But my dream is still alive. I like to write an article on different topics, where I try to provide important information that will meet the need of the people.
