Earlier this year when I shared tips on how to improve your reading, I included listening to Audiobooks. And with the smugness of an Ignoramus, I immediately dismissed the idea based on my single experience with an audiobook. The book in question was a pirated copy of The Confidence Code I got about 3 years ago. In my defence, I was as broke as a church rat at the time and there was no way I was buying that book.

Anyways, on the 28th of May this year, I got into it with a friend. When i say got into […]
I sometimes imagine what a reality show of my life would look like. In fact, for about 3 months in 2008, during the time I was supposed to be preparing for my A-levels exam (I say supposed because I pretty much spent a year goofing off).
