Hi there! I am a freelance writer who lives and breaths content on a daily basis. I consider myself to be a living paradox. An old soul trapped in a modern world. A self-proclaimed hopeless romantic and a professional over-thinker. I can't start anything unless I have my coffee. Writing has been and always will be my way of calming the storms in my heart and mind.

Technology is now a part of human lives. Moreover, it plays a great role in strengthening human relationships of all sorts, does as it can break even a very strong bond. The scenario seems to be inevitable. Unconsciously, everyone tends to get hooked to the offspring of science until they get too dependent on it over time.
