Nice post
I liked this post very much right from the title “The World According To Me”.
After reading all the points I got to know many things about you . There are some points which i truly agree and also think the same way as you. Some of them are “when we know better, we do better”, “Home is where yo make it”, “life is too short to keep toxic people around” etc . There are some points which i do not agree like “English is the most glorious language to play with”, “Education should get more funding than the military” etc.

Well every one has their own individuality and view towards the world. Any well written and nice work.

Thank you for sharing.
