How Do I Waste My Time

Today was my day off. Finally! During my working week I planned a bunch of things to do when I get some free time. Writing things for the blog, reading “Nausea” by Jean-Paul Sartre, visiting my hairdresser, studying German, learning about video editing and a few more little things. How many of them I did accomplish? None. My morning began when I picked up my phone. Instead of doing anything worthy, I was glued to the screen of my smartphone. Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, you name it. I need the Internet for my work, but every time I pick my phone something distracts me. Instead of doing valuable things I now know… Read More

Why Do You Need To Play Musical Instruments 

I’ll never forget that day when my dad took me for a walk. He brought me to a nice small building. It was in the summer and a nice lady there asked me to sing and perform something on the piano. I was six. And I didn’t know until I left that stuffy room, that I had just passed the entrance exam to the musical school. I never showed any talent for music whatsoever, but my father wanted me to study it. And so my journey of long and mundane lessons began. There were tears, screams, resentments and many threats to run away. Thank God my teacher was an angel,… Read More

Stop Wasting Your Money!

How much do you make a month? Don’t tell me, I’m not actually interested in the number. Instead, answer yourself, how much of that money is saved up for your bright future? We all promise ourselves to tighten our belts and go to that dream trip, open a business, get an education or, who knows, fulfill a childhood dream of owning an Aston Martin DB5. But how often do you leave you promises behind because saving up didn’t seem effective. You see, spending money wisely sometimes can be more valuable than knowing how to make a great deal of it. 1. Planning Planning is our everything. It is necessary in… Read More

What To Do If You Hate Your Job

I hate my job. I’m not a statistician, but I’m sure more than half you can relate. Unfortunately we live in a society where many people are trapped in a mundane job, just because something they’re good at is not deemed as worthy enough. But that is a topic for a very long post and I won’t be talking about that here. Instead, I’m going to share some tips on how to survive on a job you hate. Our jobs are a huge part of our lives. Doing something for a living that you despise is the equivalent of marrying the wrong person. Burnouts are quite common nowadays. And they’re just devastating.… Read More

Suffragettes

Last month I published an article on the importance of feminism. You can read it here. And now I decided to write a little more about the movement which, arguably, shaped the modern feminism. Before we go any further, let’s sort out a few  basic terms (with the help of our good friend — Wikipedia). Suffrage is the right to vote in public, political elections. Full suffrage is the right to vote and be elected. Universal suffrage is the right to vote without restriction due to sex, race, social status, education level, or wealth. Suffragist is a member of suffrage movement, who believed in extending the right to vote. And finally, a… Read More

Why Does Feminism Really Matter?

The level of sexism women face everyday is simply appalling. Trust me, I am one. But I’m not writing this to complain. I just want to show you, why certain movements will change our world for better. Feminist campaigns are becoming viral nowadays. The negative side of this is that those movements are becoming  a ‘trendy’ thing. More and more people are claiming themselves to be feminists only because their Instagram gurus are doing the same. According to Cambridge Dictionary, feminism is: the belief that women should be allowed the same rights, power, and opportunities as men and be treated in the same way, or the set of activities intended to achieve this state. So next time some senseless… Read More

One Hundred Years Of Solitude

Just finished reading this masterpiece. Usually, I’m done with a book in a couple of weeks, but, for some reason, this one took 5 months. It’s not because the book is boring or too long. You see, some of the events that are described by Gabriel García Márquez are not that easy to absorb. You’ll need to think them through. The other thing that slowed me down was the amount and the names of main characters. The story is about seven generations of Buendía family (about 40 characters). Many of them are named after their ancestors, so it’s easy to mix them up. ‘One Hundred Years Of Solitude’ is novel… Read More

Cochrane Library

This is the best place to find independent information about many health-related topics. Wikipedia: Cochrane, previously known as the Cochrane Collaboration, is an independent, non-profit, non-governmental organization consisting of a group of more than 37,000 volunteers in more than 130 countries. The group was formed to organize medical research information in a systematic way to facilitate the choices that health professionals, patients, policy makers and others face in health interventions according to the principles of evidence-based medicine.

Do We Need The Moon?

The Moon. It’s hard to imagine our lives without it. Since antient times it puzzled the brightest minds. It has always been a huge part of our everyday lives more than we can imagine. But have you ever wondered why is it out there? Why does our planet need it? What do you know about the Moon? As for me, I didn’t think about it a lot until recently I found out that my name actually translates as “the moonlight”. This discovery provoked some interest  in me and I decided to learn a bit more about our eternal companion. The Moon is an astronomical body which rotates around our planet.… Read More
