Heal the World

I feel more and more cultured everyday. This morning, for example, i finally got to watch Steven Speilberg's "Schindler's list". Very nice Mr. Spielberg; of course i am about 20 years late, but better late than never right?

after watching his film and shedding many tears, i realised that we have so much to be grateful for. Despite global recession, our generation escaped many cruelties from the past; what is left to us to do now, is to learn from ou forefather's mistakes and to create a better tomorow for ourselves( am i the only one who can hear "heal the world" playing in the background?). We should not use this oportunity as a means to get back at our offenders but as a means to make amends; that is what Nelson Mandela did right, surely we, who have suffered very very little compared to this extraordinary man, can do the same?

Nice to meet you

In the words of Austen Powers (the international man of mystery!!!), allow myself to introduce…myself. I am nolo and I would like to start writing stuff that people can read while laughing at my stupidity!!!

Now, before I expose you to my distorted mind, allow me to warn you. I have spent the past 6 months in what I have come to see as a form of exile. It seems to me that I am being punished for something (I have yet to find out what), my sentence, for an indefinite amount of time, being the banishment to a place of isolation. In simple words, I have had way too much time to myself over the past 6 months and have spent much of it alone with my thoughts. This is, as it has been brought to my attention, is not a good thing because my mind has turned into a dangerous neighbourhood that I should not go into alone.

Please be advised that there will be a lot of quotes from movies, TV shows, and books that are not necessarily popular, current or good. Rather, these are there movies, TV shows and books that I enjoy watching and reading on a regular basis!!!
