We All Need A Kumbaya Moment Right About Now

What in the world is going on?? I mean, on top of the constant bad worldy news – draughts, terrorist attacks, corruption, impending economy collapse, impeding war?… It seems that people’s personal lives are in chaos too. In the last week I think I have read more sad personal posts than I have ever in accumulation. They all have something in common, it goes something like this: “Sometimes life just sucks. And that’s just the situation for me right now.”  Continue reading “We All Need A Kumbaya Moment Right About Now”

I Don’t Understand How People Think Right Now

Wtf is this shit. I do something terrible, wrong, selfish thing and everyone from all angles (except for one and myself) keeps telling me I did nothing wrong, that it was God’s plan, to not feel guilty… Wtf.

I’m baffled, confused. Why? How? I don’t want praise, I don’t want pity, I want people to say “yeah you fucked up”, “people make mistakes”, “when did you become so selfish?” (this is one I wonder every day now). Something! I don’t know. Continue reading “I Don’t Understand How People Think Right Now”

Life and Travel Lessons from Tyler Durden

Most of us are familiar with the movie Fight Club, the movie that came out in 1999 and quickly gained a cult following. Tyler Durden played by Brad Pitt and the narrator, a depressed and insomniac man played by Ed Norton made a lot of us think a lot. But it’s all a masterpiece created by the brilliant Chuck Palahniuk (author).

Whether you watched the movie or read the book, viewers and readers are left with a strong message: “This is your life, and it’s ending one minute at a time.” Continue reading “Life and Travel Lessons from Tyler Durden”

A Tragic Eye-Opening Refugee Story by Humans of New York

You may follow HONY (Humans of New York) on FB, Twitter, or Tumblr already, if not, you HAVE TO; and you may have come across this story but I absolutely couldn’t not share this. This story has to be read, it has to be known. The ways of this world are unacceptable, the selfishness, the heartlessness, the greed have taken over and are making this world a terrible place. We have to change. Continue reading “A Tragic Eye-Opening Refugee Story by Humans of New York”

My Unpopular Opinion Related to Valentine’s Day

Confession: I don’t like Valentine’s Day, I think it’s stupid. And this is coming from someone who has a chocolate addiction, loves flowers and is in a relationship.

Exactly one year ago, in honor of Valentine’s Day and my disdain towards the holiday, I wrote about my opinion on relationship/dating checklists and today I feel the same way about them so I will share it again (with a few edits and additions). Continue reading “My Unpopular Opinion Related to Valentine’s Day”

Forget about New Year’s Resolutions. This year, I’m making a Fuck It List.

I am not one for sitting down and writing down my New Year Resolutions or even thinking about them. If I ever did make some as a teenager, I don’t remember ever achieving them. I gave up long time ago, mostly because I don’t care that much. I’m pretty okay with how I have and am living my life.

So in honor of that, this year I am making a “Fuck It List” and I invite you to do the same.  Continue reading “Forget about New Year’s Resolutions. This year, I’m making a Fuck It List.”

My Writing Process

Alex over at The Art of not Sitting Still wrote about his writing process and he has asked me to do the same.

I write but I don’t consider myself a writer if that makes sense. I often get pleasantly surprised when every now and then people compliment my writing specifically. I have no idea what my style is, I simply write. Subjects vary a lot, and I think my style varies too depending on the piece. Sometimes I like to do a little research about what I’m writing about and sometimes I do none at all. Continue reading “My Writing Process”
