Today I kept my eye on the politics news. FML. All the politicians are cheating. They are pull the wool over our eyes. Nothing worse than this eyesore job. Don’t be idiots and don’t catch our eyes on their stupid speeches.

Last winter my family was on a vacation to Italy. We went sightseeing and the architecture at the capital city Rome caught my eyes immediately. My brother has an eye for the map so we fortunately never got lost in the city. In the afternoon we were tired and hungry so we went to a nearby restaurant and oder a large pizza but we have to keep our eyes out for the waiter to come in 30 minutes.

It is difficult to act in the age of globalized communication network. Cause there are so much information coming up to us all the time that ends up in pulling the wool over our eyes. We feel stucked like there isn’t any way out of these old structures-wearing new masks- we’re in. But deep down I know that there is more to these moments we live right now than meets the eye. The old structures are ruining a long time, and the new ones are going to take place inevitably.
