Advertising & You Written By Hira C.

It is too simple to say that advertisements are merely just marketing tools to sell products and services, although that was originally the main idea. The earliest advertisements were important but not a major source of income because most manufacturers produced similar goods and there was no need to promote or compete between the products. Since technology advanced, goods were packed, labelled  and designed which then also led to brand-labeling. Advertisements were then necessary to use when competition grew between the new brands. At one point, ads were just information for goods and services, now socialization is used as a tool to advertise. Socialization is the lifelong process of creating and adapting to norms, customs, and ideologies, providing a way for people to use skills for participating within the society.

What the eyes see, the camera defines: Take 3 By Marie Sch

Take 3:

 Hey Baby, I had to mention,
That they got nothin' on you,
You're beautiful, it's true.

Beauty comes in many forms. I've learnt, through my experiences, the very nature of any woman is beautiful. Let's take the picture on my left as an example. From her lashes to the natural sway of her hair, it defines the very word that we so carelessly say, 'Beautiful'.

From the smile that she shows of the thoughts she could be thinking, the very mystery of a woman so elegantly shown and what might her thoughts be at the time. To the red dress resembling her passion for herself, how could we ever so carelessly say 'Beautiful'.

And then she took my breath away while the wind caressed her hair, she looked past that horizon and sees her definition of beauty.

Chapter 5: A Memory Long Forgotten (Part 2)


'Love, I hope we get old. I hope we can find a way.' 'Love, I hope we can wait. Maybe not now, maybe not today.' 'Love? I guess we were wrong, I guess we changed.' 'I kept holding to our memories too long, doesn't really feel like love any more.' 'The mistakes we had made lets not repeat them again, lets walk our own way confident and strong.' 

'Son, make me proud. Let me hold my head high.' 'Son, listen to my words, learn from my mistakes.' 'You stumbled and strayed, now climb back up.' 'Maybe I was wrong, maybe you're not strong.' -Silence- 

'You didn't wish me, that's okay you were busy.' 'I told you, I'll be there but she won't.' 'Who are you man, where are you?' 'Don't bother, I'm busy.' -Silence-

'Who am I, where am I?' 'Damn.' -Silence-
