Famous and Friends

Life is an awful, ugly place without a friend. Indeed. This goes right for celebrities and famous personalities around the world too.

I am an aspiring writer who has hopes set high to make a career in journalism. I am an avid reader, so I just find myself a corner with a book in my hand whenever I get this opportunity. I think they are the best inspiration for everything that you want to do in life. I love to read Elif Shafak. I also love to sing and watch movies. I would love to travel all around the world, know the people, their culture and history and settle in some small Europian country , perhaps Spain. Poetry, beauty, books & love , this is what I stay alive for ! [/author]
