It Wasn’t A Sequel To Begin With
November 29, 2012 – 18:32 | No Comment

My 3rd novel wasn’t meant to be a sequel to the 2nd novel in the first place. Then something happened. Characters began to beg to be included in the story. Thus, a sequel was born.

Humans Like Apples

Submitted by on February 12, 2010 – 05:42No Comment

There are all kinds of people in life.
In my sight, people are like apples.
Some are red, some are green,
Some are sweet, some are not,
Some are crunchy, some are soft.
But most important of all,
Don’t ever judge them by their skins.

Apples may look nice in the outside,
But a worm might be nesting inside.
Apples may not look good in the outside,
But it may taste good in the inside.
Therefore, before you judge someone,
Please get to know them first.
Maybe then, you will be able,
To find the real them inside.

It amazes me how people can perceive an apple so differently; How someone can tell me the girl is a bitch but I think she is nice, or how someone can call the guy an idiot but I think he is actually quite smart. Perception – Never let people’s perception of you affect the person you are inside. Their perception may slice the surface of your personality and character, but never let them do more than that. Because deep inside, their perceptions of you do not count. It’s your perception of yourself that matters. The stronger you see yourself as the person you are, the more you will be the person you have imagined yourself to be.

Remember that people often judge a book by its cover or an apple by its skin. If you have to let them take a bite to perceive who you really are inside, go on and offer them a bite. And remember to make sure that they are worthy of that bite. After all, it’s all a matter of Apple Perception.
