The game went great. All I could hear was the crowd screaming my name. I could feel the sweat dripping down my face, all the eyes staring at me, and the taste of the dry air. I had to make that basket. Everyone was counting on me. The ball leaves my hand and the crowd gasps and jumps to their feet. The ball spins in the air, circles around the rim, then… IT MAKES IT IN! The crowd goes wild! My teammates lifted me up over their heads and I felt amazing! At least, I did for a little while until it was all ruined.

After the game, I saw Angelica. She talked to me for a few minutes. We haven’t spoken in a while. She told me that I played really well in the game. I blushed and thanked her. I wanted to talk more but her mom showed up in the car and she had to go. I love everything about her. I have for a long time. I love her silky, brown hair, her beautiful light brown skin, and her eyes. They’re this magnificent hazel color. But the thing that I love the most about her is her personality. She’s funny, sweet, and super smart.

None of that matters now.

See, right after she left, my friend Angel walked over to me. We haven’t seen each other in a while and he had this strange look on his face.

He says, “Hey bro, I want to tell you something but please don’t get mad.” He starts to tell me how Angelica asked him out a few weeks ago and they’ve been dating. He’s been avoiding me because he knew I liked her but then he goes on to say that he always liked her, too.

My head was spinning. He never mentioned that he liked her once.

He knew how I felt about her and he betrayed me anyway. I felt like I had been punched in the stomach. He was still talking but I couldn’t hear anymore. I finally just screamed at him, “Leave me alone! I don’t want to talk to you ever again.”

He kept saying he was sorry but I didn’t care. He looked like he was going to cry and I said, “I don’t trust you anymore. You are not my friend.” I just walked away while he stood there. I thought about it the whole way home.

He was never a real friend, just a fake one and I will never trust anyone with my feelings or secrets ever again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Arash’s “I hate being a VILLAIN!” monologe


It’s not fair! I don’t like being called a villain. If anything, Mario is the villain, and who ever said I was the villain is wrong.

I only kidnapped Princess Peach because she asked me to. All because Mario isn’t smart enough to run his own country and now Princess Peach needs to do it herself. I mean that’s why I did it. Hey, I would be upset too if all I could wear is a “pink frilly dress.” Gross! Even that Turtle called “Yoshi” that Mario rides, comes in more colors than Princess Peach does. I had a wife and children. I had my picture-perfect life and then I got involved Mario’s mess. Now I get bored just waiting around for Mario to get past that flying level. I only have one life and that MARIO has too many to count. How is that fair? All the odds against me and he’s the one having fun all day. People adore him and people despise me.

And I get so mad when they come out with a new video game with Mario as the front cover. Without me, you wouldn’t have your precious video games anymore. I practically invented video games! And then, you go to a Halloween store you see Mario and Luigi costumes but do you see it any Bowser costumes? NO, you don’t see any Bowser costumes! You don’t see any villain costumes because nobody wants to be the villain!

So why should I be one? It’s not fair.

What is Alcoholism!?


In one of my lead shares in A.A. , I spoke of life as an Alcoholic Person in recovery.

So What is Alcoholism exactly?

Disclaimer: I am not an expert on this matter but i can only share my experience about it.

Picture yourself , i said as a passenger on a vast ocean liner like the Titanic in a lonely voyage , surrounded on all sides by mystery. Looking up , there’s the old Sky, .
Looking down , the mystery of the heart of the ocean.

So what do you do when lost at sea?

I continued by reminding myself by my notes that by looking back and forward.!!!!

There is no comedy in this! only drama!

So you pray to be saved!

Some other people are lost in their own different pursuits.

Some Gamble,others in music, Sex, Lust, Art,Eating etc.


alot of people think A.A. is nothing but a social club.a place to go and see who is doing what.

to answer the questions is that the correct answer is : alot of people people are lost spirits.

They just have to get lucky.


Some say Alcoholism is the most severe form of alcohol abuse and involves the inability to manage drinking habits, thinking habits etc. It is also commonly referred to as alcohol use disorder or thinking use disorder. They say Alcohol use disorder is organized into three categories: mild, moderate and severe but i think there is a third category and that is the chronic ones like me. Each category has various symptoms and can cause harmful side effects and every body knows that!.

We now know that If left untreated, any type of alcohol abuse can spiral out of control. but what about those addicted to Gambling,music, Sex, Lust, Art,Eating etc.

there are other kinds of help for those people but there are other 12 step programs for them too.


So while both alcohol abuse and other abuses are included in the alcohol use disorder diagnosis and involve engaging in mal adaptive behaviors in the use of alcohol or sex or other addictive vicious cycles, abuse of any substance stangely enough does not include the person having a withdrawal symptoms or needing more and more amounts to achieve intoxication (tolerance) unless the person has developed Addictions.

Rubies have an almost other-worldly quality that has beguiled and delighted humanity throughout the ages.


Rubies were treasured by early cultures as they represented the redness of the blood that flowed through their veins, and many believed that rubies held the power of life and so were often carried into battle for protection. To the spiritually inclined, such as is the case for people of Hindu faith who composed the earliest written accounts of ruby or “ratnaraj” (meaning “king of the gemstones” in ancient Sanskrit), the gem is as radiant as the “sun new risen” and “paints the whole house with crimson”.



In 2012, Gemfields added Montepuez Ruby Mining to its portfolio, the mine developed from a greenfield site, covers 350km2 in Northern Mozambique. It is the largest known ruby mine in the world today. This gemstone deposit has been described as the most significant discovery in recent history.

Rubies vary in colour more than you might expect, from brownish-red to orangey-red to purplish-red to pinkish-red. Neither too dark nor too light, and evenly distributed throughout the gemstone.

Traditionally the most prized colour of rubies are a vivid crimson with a hint of blue. As with all gemstones the colour should be even throughout. The appraisal and appreciation of colour is, of course, subjective to some extent. Rubies from different origins often have distinctive colours although each deposit can have a range in hues. Mozambican rubies are quite unique in their formation as the region produces rubies that are in many ways similar to those found in each of the other key producing nations, thereby spanning breadth of the know colour ranges.



Arash of Beverly Hills


The lord of the Sevens!




Once upon a time there was a Young man who was born in the 7th month of the year.  Many common trouble people came to him but he lived , but it seemed to the him that he was the boy who lived.

“Troubled people acted like there’s nothing more to the young man than what he was doing,he wanted to be an actor, singer,pirate,” he said to himself with a frown.

One afternoon in a writers club, he thought, “Sometimes I wish i could be a story teller but i dont feel inspired all the time ,besides i have no training, no confidence,i want to tell the world greatest story so he thought of the notorious number 7, a lucky number supposedly! he did something special for his birthday but he wanted to do something special for himself again.”

He went to his room and found his favorite piece of jewelry , the one that sparkled when he taking it up high under the sun.  He took the jewel to yard and threw it higher and higher without worrying it would fall and break. One time he threw it extra high and when he ran to catch the jewel, He slipped on a wet floor and fell. The jewel fell and plopped right down into the royal well!  He raced over to fetch his jewel before it dropped too far, but by the time he got there he could no longer see his priceless jewel in the water.

he dived into the well and dug the priceles jewel out. it was not brocken. now he was thinking to sit down and write his story.
