Word of the Day

I'm sure everyone has encountered a situation where you know you know a word but at that point in time, that word had slipped your mind. It is a frustrating and funny scenario that just bugs your mind all day.

Trudging Uphill

I used to think that I adapt to changes quite well. But this, by far, is probably the most challenging change I'm trying to acclimatise to.
