Enlightenment of Knowledge

Being in university one goes for learning no? I like it, the knowledge, the exercise to the brain. By far my favorite class last semester was History by a really good professor Clay Burlingham. We talked about the European history from B.C.  up to the French Revolution. I learnt much by hearing the stories of empires becoming magnificent and then declining. Governments working and not working. Cultures changing and worldviews shifting all due to disease, or heretics. I found this very fascinating but one thing that I really understood was the idea of the monarchy. Yes there are bad monarchs but there are bad rulers everywhere whether from a democracy or from an elected congress. The world is based off of rulers we need them to keep everything in orders but the democracy prevents them from making decisions period usually the good ones and the bad ones comes through because the world is run by politicians. Therefore, my views is that countries need a constitutional monarchy with a senate or other form of government to get a good person and ruler with various requirements, and to give other consent. With the monarchy the decisions will be made and in most cases if a country had a good ruler then they prospered very well. In conclusion I am for a constitutional monarchy.

Do Dreams Change?

Are all dreams able to come true? Realistically, no not at all. This does not mean yours wont. I should really listen to these words. I have been losing faith in myself, I tried writing a book in the past year along with the poetry since I got inspired by a new idea. I was all ready I even had the first chapter edited and ready to publish then half way through my grade 12 year I lost it. THE WHOLE BOOK!! I am still frustrated by this and upset, but I did still attempt to write it again on paper this time. According to the famous Austin Powers movies "I lost my mojo"! Of course in different reference. One has to love the classics. I cannot get a new idea and my old ones are lost to me. I have been questioning to myself "should I stop writing then focusing on university and biology? This is my predicament. I pretty sure no one will read this but I will keep you posted on how the inspiration will go.
