Writing 101:unlock the mind.


  Todays assignment;writing 101 challenge was to sit down for 20 minutes and write anything,i really love to call it free writing.To write has been something of an habit for some people.Everyone write for different motives.
*some write to get the attention of the public.
*people also write just because they love to write and have taken it as an habit.
*some also write about controversial issues to bring about a change.
*people write because they have a story to share with the world.
*and some also write to express themselves.
  Looking at it from a practical point of view most people write to gain attention of the public,they may focus on writing about a particular topic to become well known for their opinions about it,even though most people fail to gain attention because they are not willing to admit to themselves that they want it or at one time or another they did admit it,but then gave up to soon.
  Oh time is almost up but why do ‘we’ write.

Wenger, 64, has led Arsenal to eight major trophies since joining them in September 1996.

This season he guided the Gunners to a 17th consecutive Champions League qualification and ended a nine-year wait for silverware with victory over Hull City in the FA Cup final.
The Frenchman was coming to the end of his previous contract.

Cristiano Ronaldo to Skip Portugal Vs. Greece Friendly Match

Cnmeister's Blog

Cristiano Ronaldo will sit out Portugal’s friendly against Greece on Saturday as he looks to recuperate for the World Cup.

Ronaldo has been dogged by leg injuries and sore muscles in recent months, though he played in last weekend’s Champions League final and scored the fourth goal in Real Madrid’s 4-1 win over Atletico Madrid.

Portugal coach Paulo Bento said Friday he wouldn’t risk playing Ronaldo against the Greeks in Lisbon.

Real Madrid center-back Pepe, who missed the Champions League final with a calf injury, is also sidelined.

Bento has said Ronaldo will be given special medical attention to get him fully fit in time for Portugal’s June 16 World Cup opening game against Germany. The United States and Ghana are also in Portugal’s group.

Can lightning strike twice in a row? Two Real Madrid purchases in two years? Hmm. I’ve wanted Karim Benzema at Arsenal for some time, and would be extremely happy if Arsene Wenger makes this move.  Benzema will see a return to a more mobile and technical striker, than the more straightforward Olivier Giroud. Still not a fan of the fellow.

Like the article says though, it may be too good to be true. I still don’t trust Arsene Wenger with big signings even after Mesut Ozil.
