We all have thought, at least once, that we are missing something that we need to have - like that red handbag that we saw in a magazine or your favorite team’s newest shirt. But do we really need it? It’s not wrong to think that we need them but we should really think if it’s worthy and necessary before buying them. Today I woke up in a comfortable bed under a fuzzy blanket and in a warm room, and I hope many of you had the same experience as I did. But do we realize how luc...

Hello everyone! First of all, I want to wish you all a happy new year with all my heart. It’s been a while since I wrote my last post and now that I press the keys of my keyboard I realize how much I missed it. If you check my previous posts, I say this quite frequently but it’s the truth. This year, from my perspective, is a year of changes. The US is going to have a new president in a few days, climatic change is getting worse and we need to work together to make it stop; the...

Have you ever felt like you are not good enough? Like if everything that you’ve worked really hard for, someone else gets it even though you worked harder? Or maybe like you did all the teamwork on your own and everybody else gets credit for it. Well, let me tell you that I’ve also been there. Lately, I’ve been feeling like everything that I do is not good enough. For example, my classmates ask me for my notes or my homework, and I do share it with them because I want to be helpf...

Hello there, I think that if you are reading this it is because you found the topic familiar or you have heard it before. But, do we really know the meaning of the word? According to the Cambridge dictionary, it means: The act of delaying something that must be done, often because it is unpleasant or boring. Now that we have the definition of the word, we realize that we all have done it at least once by leaving that big project or essay for the night before its due date or b...

Do we really notice what happens around us? According to my philosophy teacher, reality is just an illusion, a projection of our own ideas, but what do you think? We do see what happens around us but sometimes we do not really ponder on it, like when we see a beggar on the street. Do we wonder how or why he or she is there, or what must have happened so that his/her life has ended up this way? I do, and I’m completely sure I’m not the only one. I know that if we all could sav...

Perfection. The word is so foreign but so familiar at the same time, right? We always try to reach it but we never quite get there, no matter how hard we try. Do you know why? Because it’s impossible to reach something that doesn’t exist. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It’s a phrase we hear frequently on the TV or at school, in art class. The phrase itself tells us that beauty can be different for each one of us, the same happens with perfection. What you think is perfect,...

Today, I woke up telling myself I’d do what my heart wanted to and that was to write a post so here I’m and I mad with myself for not writing as frequently as I want to. This is something that I really enjoy and I don’t want to let it go. So, after saying that, I’m going to explain you this post. On the 23rd of this month, I turned 17 and a half years old, so that’s why there are 17 and a half reasons, one per year, except the last one since I’m not 18 yet. This made me remember al...

Lately I’ve been feeling more tired than I usually do, I feel like all the homework and projects are going to eat me alive in any moment. That’s why I haven’t written a post since a month ago or so and to be honest, I think that no one knows how much I missed and needed this time for myself. Sometimes I wonder if I worry a lot about my grades, and at the end I realize that I do. I always do my homework and I hand it on time, I’m quiet in the classroom and I raise my hand to par...


Travel sets your heart on fire

When you search the verb ‘traveling ‘on the internet, the definitions that appear on your screen are something similar like this: going to different places instead of staying in one place. It’s that, indeed, but personally I think that this type of definition doesn’t do the word justice. Traveling is more than going to another place by any type of transportation. It is a process, an adventure to discover new things and get to know and understand others, and even yourself....
