Sometimes, you hear a sound..

Hours compareable to incarceration. Guilt complex unrelenting. Self-inflicted insecurities. I am the cause of these things, bringer of isolation, an unquenchable hunger. How is it found, the bread of satisfaction, to which I find my cravings resolved? No blood has been taken this moon, nor sacrifices at the alters of flesh, yet the memory of your anguish at the hands of the demons in your mind justifies. It stands out like an idol, bound and infected with the misery you have gestated this far, speaking a language you learned while living in the light. Its words sound like the love you condemned yourself for abandoning, reassuring you to the testimony that placed you in such a choice to begin with. This graven image, this self-created idolatry has now somehow become the boon of effort. This is my prize? Resurrected scar tissue in the form of haunting memories? Another moments pause at the hands of time quells this paranoia. Another song presents itself. Another day begins and you understand now that this image is only real because you have become capable of seeing the self you have created.
I have not been able to forgive myself once, in every day Ive lived, since I left you. My sleep is unfulfilling without waking up next to my daily reminder of why I live to breathe. The food I eat only lets me live longer to count sobering minutes into a life spanning memory of dreaming this had more purpose. The flouride in my water is my best shot at getting a sembelence of stability. You did, however, let me know that I have your blessings and love. A single line of words that burn my eyes and steal my breath every time I remember them.
Well, graven image, idol of my agony. I have heard your words, felt your song and tasted your testimony. I thank you for your time spent waiting, your compassion and your honesty. Please let it be know, oh Idol of my regret, that I have all asperations of obtaining the salvation my love has hoped I reach. I will not forget how we have spoken today or the voice you sing to me in. Let my requiem begot of your salvation, oh bearer of burden. Please return to the creator of your message and announce its delivery, reception and praise. Give thy creator an assurance, her voice is heard.

what is career counselling
Career Counselling is the process through which one can understand one’s own self and the world around him/her to be able to chalk out a career path by making an informed decision around the same. Through Career Counselling, a student might overcome the uncertainties around his/her career, the lack of knowledge on the same, any disagreement with his/her parents, and come closer to fulfilling his/her dreams.  Why do we need a Career Counsellor?  We spend a good 40 years of our lives working on our careers. That’s almost 36,000 hours. Shouldn’t we ensure that we spend this precious time on something we enjoy? In order for us to identify what we like, and what our strengths are and how well they are aligned- we need the help of a career counsellor.  Clarity of thought School is a time when options are many. Children are surrounded by aspiring doctors, lawyers, singers, actors, sports stars. What’s more, teenagers are typically more impressionable which means they need more careful supervision. Here is when a career counselling session can really be of help to them. By asking the right questions and showcasing reality, a career counsellor can help erase some of the confusion in a student’s mind.  The direction towards the right path  Once the student’s confusion has been eased, the career counsellor can help him/her find the right path. Through multiple interactions, the student’s interests, aptitude, and personality can be concluded. In the process, the career counsellor also listens in and establishes a good rapport with the student which then puts them in a position to direct the student towards a path that is most suited to him/her.  Technology-aided assistance thereby reducing bias  It is likely that some career counsellors are influenced by their own personal bias while counselling. However, with the help of online psychometric assessments, the results are quite evident. They make the counsellor’s task easier because they can then base their recommendations on the assessments. Thus, the student receives an objective suggestion.  Awareness of lesser-known and more obvious choices It is impossible for a student to keep track of all the possible career paths available to him/her. Due to the extensive research they conduct, career counsellors are often able to shed light on the not very popular choices of careers. These unknown paths might end up being the ideal career for the student!  Who needs counselling? The CBSE requires that there be a career counsellor in every affiliated school. Every child who goes to school requires a career guidance counsellor. If children are to break free from traditions and create their own lives by not following their parents’ footsteps, they must counsel a career guidance specialist. Even children who have supportive parents can benefit from career counseling sessions because they can learn a lot more about themselves and make a more informed decision about their careers.  Who does Career Counseling?  In schools, there is supposed to be a designated career counsellor who handles queries. However, most schools are in acute shortage. As a result, schools outsource counseling work to private companies. There are several career counselling companies that shoulder the responsibility. They offer professional assessment, guidance, college shortlisting and application assistance. There are also independent career counsellors who perform the same functions on a freelance basis.  What is required to do counselling?  Most career counsellors have a Bachelor’s degree in Behavioral Sciences or Psychology or in a related discipline and they top that up with a Master’s degree in Counselling, after which, they take some more steps to earn their license to practice. After they have earned their certification and license, they can start practicing. This is the long route to becoming a Career Counsellor which involves several years of academic study and a few years of practice too.  Another way to do career counselling  Let’s say you’re genuinely interested in career counseling but haven’t had the necessary education to support a career in it. Fret not, you can do the Global Career Counsellor certification program and start practicing anywhere in the world. It is Asia’s first career counseling program in partnership with UCLA Extension. Take control of your career, become a Global Career Counsellor today!
news today
What is left for traditional publications, even traditional publications on the Internet, is to create news digests with generous doses of opinion and views to turn out news features that provoke readers into making comments for or against the writer. That's what news articles are all about today. Because they take time to write and research, and much before the writing is finished, the raw information reaches those who are crazy about remaining updated. The Internet is open and active 24 X 7 and news is received by people interested in a topic, usually within a few moments of the news reaching the news room, and much before a feature is created and published on a news outlet. This does not of course mean that news articles have lost their value, but that they have gained more value and become immensely tougher to write. Unless, of course, you are just creating landfill content, or recycling stuff. Today, when writing a news feature the writer usually assumes that the audience or at least a part of the audience who would be most interested in the topic is already aware of the news in its skeletal form. So, third person reiteration of information is going to receive little appreciation or reaction among readers. Since users are now able to publish their opinion on the same page where a news feature is published, the writer runs the risks of attracting negative comments if the news feature is not fleshed out properly, and does not match the sentiments of the reader. This means more research to be done for news articles to create views articles that can engage the audience and hold their attention for more than three seconds, and then progress to a maximum of three minutes. The "three seconds" job is done by the title, and the rest has to be done by the writer working hard and demonstrating his skills. So, there are few categories of news that do not have a direct or indirect bearing on business and thus may not be categorized as news - and its business all the way from showbiz to political biz with such news fuelling our everyday life. https://fastworldnews.com/

You and Jin would bake a cake and cook food. Hobi and Tae would clean up while Namjoon and Yoongi decorated. "Namjoon please don't break anything." Hobi laughed. Namjoon rolled his eyes and laughed. The next day it was super hot in the office and all you wanted to fo was take a shower. You rushed home and jumped into the shower. Jin would be shopping for food with Namjoon while the others bought decorations. Jungkook would be at the library volunteering so everything should be finished then. The water felt so good as you allowed it to hit your skin. You had your relaxing body wash. You inhaled the lavender scent and lathered up your body sponge. You began cleaning and singing when you seen a pair of eyes looking in the small crack of the door. You paused thinking you seen something else. You didn't know if your mind was playing tricks on you. Then you looked back and no one was there. You finisjef showering and walked down to your room. You noticed Jungkook's door was cracked. This was strange cuz he always locks his door. You pay no mind and get dressed. The crew arrived and you all get to preparing the surprise birthday for Jungkook. You were pleased how everything played out. Namjoon only broke 3 things which is good. You walked to your room to get an extra present you brought for Jungkook when you noticed your pantry drawer was opened. Your neatly arranged panties were all a mess. You picked up the present wrapped in shiny red wrapper and seen that Jungkook's door was cracked wider. You walked down the hall and heard odd noises. "Yass gosh noona..." You peeped your head in without makjng a sound and saw Jungkook with your panties in his hand. He was licking a pink pair with a red pair wrapped around his man hood. Jungkook was stroking himself. You found yourself shook for a moment. But then you began watching out of enjoyment. Your breathing goth heavier. Jungkook slowly his hand motion and grinned. "I know you are watching me noona."

Remember you made me promise not to tell." You walked into his room and closed the door. "Shh boy that was a mistake." "A mistake?" Jungkook said while raising his eyebrow. He smiled while looking at the gift I had. "Nice wrapping but do you know what I really want noona?" Jungkook smirked. Jungkook walked closer to be still hard as a brick and stood behind me allowing his hard on to rub between by cheeks. He let out a groan. "I know you been with all the guys nonna, they brag about it. I want you now." Jungkook said. "Jungkook...look those days are behind me. I'm no longer group banging trash." "Okay I will just spread the word at work." Jungkook laughed. "Fine Jungkook." I hissed. Jungkook pushed me on my stomach while sliding my shorts to the side. He was happy to see I had in no panties. He stuffed a pair or my panties he had in my mouth and plunged deep inside me without mercy. The pink wet panties muffled my scream of pleasure. Jungkook pounded me hard and fast. "Noona you were all wet from watching me?" Jungkook smacked my butt hard. "ANSWER me. You like watching me wack off?" I nodded as he pulled me hard into him. He switched so we were facing the mirror and began pounding me hard hitting all my spots. "Look at that little face. You love it noona. Yoongi said you like it rough." I surprised Jungkook and pusjed him back on his butt. I climbed on top of him. "You gotta do more to get me off little baby boy." I said while grinning. I began riding him hard and fast while pulling his hair. He began sucking my right breast as I rode him. "Yass that's a good baby boy." I moaned. I could see he was coming to the edge and so was I. The room echoed of slapping skin. "Noona yasss! Oh shit!" Jungkook moaned while exploded in me. The explosion made me go over the edge. My vision was so blurry. Suddenly the crew busted in "Happy Birthday Jungkook!" "Shit looks like we got to the party late." Yoongi blurted.
