Ever heard of the saying ' Patience is a virtue'? I love it since it's true: Patience is the most valuable quality in a person, which most of us regrettably lack.

Besides being a Patient guy, +Barack is a technology lover, research partner, water chemistry enthusiast, and a private campaigner against INSOMNIA:)

Most stuff in Barack's profile will be about technology, internet marketing, swimming pool maintenance, and product reviews.

Away from writing: He rolls in roller skates, a student of Shotokan Karate, and also has a knack for swimming...What about your story?:)
