Africa is the second largest of the earth’s seven continents and makes up approximately 22% of the earth’s total land area. g With the inclusion of the disputed Western Sahara territory and the island nations off the continental coast, there are a total of 54 independent nations in Africa. a The current population of Africa is nearly one billion people.

i am in a constant battle with my mind. i go from thinking that i am special for being "intelligent" to realizing that being aware of my being special is, in fact a sign that i am just seeking attention and simply something i like thinking about myself. then i realize that being aware of that fact counter-acts itself, and i am stuck in an endless paradox of myself. i have not yet learned how to stop and just say "it doesn't matter" Written by on Jul 8, 2009 @ 09:11 Share this on StumbleUpon <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
