A note on apathy

You got to give it to drama queens. They experience their emotions to the fullest, regardless of the annoying stir they cause or the fact that they are so unbearable to most of us. They are passionate about their ‘suffering’. They translate stimuli around them in the most demonstrative way.

Now think of the extreme opposite. Not feeling anything. Not just momentarily, but as a persistent state of mind. Being transcended by events around you and not having the mood to deal or care about them.  Continue reading A note on apathy

2016’s Favourites

2016 was a year of mixed impressions for me. It either swirled me sky high or dropped me abruptly to the bottom. I am not disappointed, though. I am rather fulfilled. In 2016, I managed to make my crazy big dreams, rooted in my teenage years, come true. Living this experience made me feel the thrill of having some things being realized the way Ι have imagined them to be.

And yes. You finally reach that point in your life where you have finished with your studies. Good on you! Congratulations! etc.

Hello nostalgia, my old friend

Life offers an abundance of possibilities and choices. For those of us that have the travel bug or the unbeatable urge to live abroad and have been lucky enough to achieve it, there is a feeling that compares to no other. The feeling of being torn between two places: your home, your comfort zone, and the place where you  have always dreamt of living, the place where your heart longs to be. Between the first case,where you want to live somewhere else and experience the different possibilities, and the second, where you are actually at this dreamy place but you’re missing home, your people, the ease of familiarity, lies a big imbalance.
