HOW I GOT THE DISSERTATION HELP TO GET MY DISSERTATION AAPROVED !!!

When Dissertation Troubles Surrounded Me:



This is an appreciative letter to thank the people who provided pin-point and professional dissertation help at the time when I was totally disappointed and had braced myself to meet the disaster regarding my PhD degree. It was the worst time of my life when I even thought of my dissertation disapproval.



I was busy working and handling my social life. You can say that… Continue

The Blue Moon

The Blue Moon



Maria Ní Mhurchú



The blue moon

Sings a lullaby

To the sparkling stars.



As I sit here

On the dewy grass

I’m reminded

Of my disco days

Stars dancing

Too and fro

Kissing

Laughing

Screaming

With delight!



As I gaze into

The Heavens

I realise that I am staring

At the Milky way.



I’m reminded of my Maker

And my Grandad’s mantra:

“He knows every hair on… Continue

Moment of Piece

A fragment here;

a ragged end of parchment there.

Bits

morsels

nuggets

reflective panes with wavy lines and frosted edges

tossed in a pile in a musty room darkened by a cloud of inactivity.



Awaiting

contemplation

conversation

compilation

consummation.



Tangled up with random weavings,

nails and glue guns;

screwed-up heavings of weightier notions into place.



Hard-fought battles of overladen… Continue

ROLE OF MASS MEDIA

Mass media can easily bring a difference in shaping the course of national history.It is in some way an extension of human voice.Human brain imparted a new dimension to man's ability to communicate with the invention of printing about 1450 AD.Within a short period of only 30 years between 1896 and 1926 appeared one by one film,radio and television.There was a revolution of technological development and the idea of 'Global Village' emerged.Yet mass media was nothing but a dream to the third… Continue

Finding Joy

Transitions from one year to the next naturally and organically invite us to reflect on the past while we contemplate and plan for the future. Even if the concept of time is a construct we have chosen to help organize our existence, this cycle is inevitable, perhaps necessary, and -- we hope --constructive.



And so I, like many of you, have been considering my personal 2008... knowing that my inner space influences not only my life, but also that of the planet. I'm not feeling… Continue

There's Something about Blogging...

Have you ever thought about it?



Blogging is like casting bread on the waters.



Fish might eat it. Ducks might swim up, quack a little, then eat some, too. It might float back to you, soggy, but in a pinch, edible. It might float away to another island and tell people you're there.



Blogging is sending out signals to the world at large that you exist. You have an opinion. You want to share. Words flow out from your keyboard and form little rafts made from posts and… Continue

Winds of Winter in My Veins

My heart blows cold like the winds of winter,
Winds that seem to freeze the very blood in my veins
With the dictates of a life rigid with false rules.
How fiery they rage, and yet how fleeting,
Living for a time, then vanishing like snow's blossoms.

My heart blows cold like the winds of winter.

Amid Willowy Mists

Amid willowy mists I stand,
Waters beckon to fallen leaves,
Shadows dance on the lake.

In the Wake



The siren moon rubs her eyes and wakes

To flirt with midnight's enchanting stars...

I lay there, between the cool sheets,

Gazing out the window,

Witnessing the courtship...

A sweet peaceful dance

As the night frolics while the day sleeps.



I Drift...



Slumber tugs at the corners of my mind,

Whispering...

Scenes from life...

Playing like a picture show behind my… Continue

corporate life.

In my past i've been the creative force in many people's lives. I've been known for my art and for my writing to the point that i've always gotten three or four journals for christmases, birthdays and more. In joining reality and the adult world of bills, children and husbands, i've lost that bit of myself that was driven to look within and share thoughts and ideas on paper through story, commentary or poetry.

Why in this world of gas mileage and mortages do we feel the need to stifle our… Continue

Out of the Box and Looking for Work

Whether you are applying for a 'regular' job, or making a pitch to do some writing, you have to use all your advantages. Sometimes a traditional approach is not sufficient.



If you don't have a long or recent employment history that is pertinent, take a look at other things you've done that show off your talents. This can be especially true for writers.



Newsletters written on a voluntary basis nonetheless show your writing talent, ability to meet a deadline, creativity,… Continue
