  1. Two surprised me–Game of Thrones and Shades of Grey

    • I was somehow expecting Shades of Grey would be in the list (although not #1). It’s like everyone I know have already read that book except myself and have talked about it in the social media for quite some time.

MIRAGE

Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a persistent one. So get a few laughs and do the best you can. Don't have an ideal to work for. That's like riding towards the mirage of a lake.
