-bus people-

There is nothing that beats the bus and its people. You see all sorts of people in the bus. Some are regulars; you see them most days of the week and you are beginning to feel like you are one big happy family. There is that guy who sits across from you, always in sun…

-summer 2017 reads-

Hiya guys! How are we doing? I hope alright. Between having my thesis done and submitted to examiners and starting a new job I have just about managed to do some reading. I thought I’d share some of the books that I have been loving lately. Guys my summer reads: It begins as it must…
