There are different times when I wrote in different posts that we should never stop dreaming, even when the circumstances around us make us think otherwise. It is something that I really believe. There were times, though, when I was thinking that this was not really possible for me. But then changed. Thursday, 18 February 2016: Padelis Padelidis, ''the guy with the guitar'' was killed in a car accident at age 32.The shock was huge for everyone. It’s not just that I like his son...

"I will leave my mark,so everyone will know I was here''. -Beyonce (Song: "I was here" ) It is one of those rare moments when I have a doubt for writing about some things.And when it comes to something that comes from a diary, the decision is even harder. But then, I thought that maybe I was not the only one who thinks that way.So, I decided to share my thoughts with you. I see different sad things happening every day. People hating others, people dying, the nature being d...

If you have read any of my articles, then you will probably know about a movie called "The Normal Heart". I have written about its plot, as well as how it affected me and why it changed my life. But, today, I'd like to talk about one of its main characters; Felix Turner. Felix is a journalist working at "The New York Times". Ned Weeks is a gay activist, who tries to raise awareness about the new epidemic that kills gay men, as well as to convince the government to find a tr...

Happy New Year, everyone; Καλή Χρονιά ("Kali Hroñá''), as we say in Greece. 2015 was a year that that kept us in our feet.There were beautiful moments, happy moments and sad moments. From terror attacks to marriage equality in the US, we witnessed things that made us think, feel, and help, each one of us, in our own, unique way. The new year is here, ready for us to leave our mark; to make a change and do the little things that will make our world a better place...

"If you wanna make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make that change". This is going to be a short post for something big and important: human rights. We live in a world where "discrimination", "racism", "war", "inequality" and more are a part of our everyday lives. Thousands of people in different parts of the world are denied even the basics: a safe environment, access to clean water, food and education – things that are important for a person to live...

In a previous article I wrote about my personal experience of the difficult process towards the national exams, as well as the possible plans I had after the announcement of the results. A year later things have changed, and thankfully the news is good. After nine months, full of studying hard and taking private lessons, I took part in the national exams of Greece for the second time. As a result, I passed and was accepted to a Nursing school. It wasn't a profession th...

"Bullying is the use of force, threat, or coercion to abuse, intimidate, or aggressively dominate others. The behavior is often repeated and habitual. One essential prerequisite is the perception, by the bully or by others, of an imbalance of social or physical power. Behaviors used to assert such domination can include verbal harassment or threat, physical assault or coercion, and such acts may be directed repeatedly towards particular targets. Rationalizations for such behavior...

As you may have understood, from previous posts (here and here) the issue of HIV/AIDS, is probably more important for me than ever. As a result, the campaign that has started, in order to end adolescent AIDS, could not leave me uninterested. Especially when we talk about ages that are so close to mine. Most of us have heard of HIV/AIDS - how it is being transmitted and what are the ways to prevent it - but not everyone. According to the website allintoendadolescentaids.org/, 2,10...
