The Christmas Song Book Tag

I saw this tag on 'round The Flames blog. You can check it out here. In this tag, titles of popular Christmas songs are taken and a question is made out of each one.

So, here goes!

1. "You're a Mean One Mr. Grinch" - Name a villainous character you couldn't help but love to hate.
President Snow from The Hunger Games Trilogy. An old guy who kills children to further his political agendas and seems to enjoy it? Hell Yeah! He's so methodical in what he does and he's extremely good at psychologically manipulating someone to get what he wants. Maybe it's because I really like the actor playing Snow in the movies. But, looking like Santa and Papa Smurf combined he is a hell lot evil and I find his character really interesting.

A Decent Story, Peaceful Aliens and Some Fun Characters In A Blender

I Have Not Read any of the books in the Twilight series. I have watched all the movies, but I didn't read any of the books. I'm still not gonna read them. I consider it an okay story..But they are not in any way Good pieces of literature. No matter anyone says, I'm gonna stand on that! Seriously, I think even the fans of the series know that. The truth is bitter, but it is the truth.

So, I was really surprised when I read The Host by Stephenie Meyer and liked it even though it wasn't the kind of book about aliens I usually read. I'm not gonna be like OMG! That book is Awesome!! There were some things I didn't like, but overall it's a pretty decent read. This a short list of why I think you should give it a try.
Now, these are strictly my opinions.With that said let's get onto business!

To Speak or Not To Speak

Listening has become overrated.

This question has been in my mind for sometime now...do we listen as much as we speak?
Have you ever tried sitting in a room where everyone is talking all at once continuously? It is like many horses neighing at once. Your head would feel like it's trying to explode with all unintelligible sound. It ceases to be a conversation at that point and just becomes plain old noise.Yeah, it's not pleasant. Also it wouldn't get anyone anywhere.

Nowhere Else

November 14th was Children's Day, the day specially dedicated to kids in India in the honor of Dr. Jawaharlal Nehru's birthday and with that day brought a long line of memories starting from Kindergarten.It was fun and enjoyable to watch all the teachers trying to entertain us with whatever talent they had and sometimes they were bad at it, but remembering the effort they took to make us happy filled my heart with pride and immense happiness but, with it also bought the realization that I would never experience it again. I wasn't a school student and definitely not a kid anymore
