Twitter vs Facebook.

Often some friends ask me ‘What is Twitter?’ I always try to explain what it is, but after a minute, my friend’s face makes me feel that I am not making sens.

End of Summer (Almost).

I’m getting back on tracks as the summer comes to an end.

My summer was quiet exciting and as good as I expected.

June 6th was, for me, the beginning of my summer. My birthday always brings me a lot of joy and happiness. Since I’m a kid at heart,  I secretly feel that this date is very special and the beginning of something new.
