ON (VEGAN) RADICALISM

We sometimes get so excited about something that we stop realising what we’re doing. We sometimes find an issue so important to us that we forget how we’re representing it. We forget to actually be the thing we want to represent; and by that, we kill it instead of spreading it. What I want to…

Dear Most

Dear Town, it’s time to say farewell. Adieu. Sbohem. Dear M, it’s time for us to part. Our relationship was never perfect. Was never meant to be. Dear O, it’s time we break up. And never come back together. Except for an occasional visit. Dear S, I have hated you for most of my life….

‘THE FUTURE YOU’ DOESN’T EXIST

How many times have you caught yourself picturing adventurous things you’d do, great outfits you’d wear, life goals you’d achieve? And how many times have you actually gone and done it? We all do it. We picture ourselves doing the things we’ve always wanted to do, travelling to countries we’ve never been to, being the…

CHANGE YOUR TRADITION

Since it’s Christmas time, I thought I’d write an article about traditions. Christmas is a tradition. And everyone would agree that it’s beautiful to celebrate it each year, that it’s a magical event that bonds people together. I think that as well, but there are many other things related to this topic. In the Czech…

HELP DONA AND HER CHILD

Hello, merry Christmas to all! As some of you might know, every Christmas I try to do some good deed and help others/make them happy. This year my friends and I have decided to help Dona, a woman from Sumatra who I know personally, with delivering her child. It would be amazing if you sent…

IN MEMORIAM OF ANNE FRANK

I’ve just finished reading The Diary by Anne Frank. And it hit me so much that I just couldn’t keep my mouth (or fingers) shut. Because, even though this article might be read only by a few people, she deserves to be remembered, together with all those people killed during Holocaust. Anne Frank Anne Frank’s…

ANIMALS ARE NOT OUR TOYS

When I was in Mariánské Lázně last month, I saw these horses. I slowly came closer and watched them for a while. They looked so sad. One couldn’t even see what was around him because it would scare him, and the other had such desperate gaze. He looked as if nothing mattered to him anymore,…

WHAT IS BEAUTY?

During my short life I’ve heard many people making comments about appearances of others. ‘How could he want her, she’s not even pretty’, or ‘Have you noticed she’s lost weight? She’s so much prettier now!’ or ‘This guy is really ugly, I doubt he’ll ever find someone’. Such things. And I would be very happy…

ONLY WHEN WE’RE LOST

Written on 17th June 2017 “Only when we’re lost can we find ourselves again.” I bought a picture with this saying on it when I was lost. And now I’m sitting at the Dubai airport, heading to Indonesia, feeling like I’ve finally found myself. If I didn’t get lost, I would never try to find…

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT SOCIAL MEDIA

CO MILUJU NA SOCIÁLNÍCH MÉDIÍCH There are times when I get obssesed with things. First it’s the Big Bang Theory, then it’s the Harry Potter books again, then it’s Naruto… and what happens during these times is that I cannot stop thinking about it. Or talking about it. Or living just for that single addiction…

THE PROBLEM WITH GENDER STEREOTYPES

GENDEROVÉ STEREOTYPY „Men always want sex.“ „Women are the more emotional ones.“ „Men are stupid and think only about football/other sports.“ „Women are annoying because they live for shopping.“ We hear these things every day. It‘s everywhere around us. It’s in the pictures, in the television, some people say such things on daily basis. While…

STEP OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE

VYSTUP ZE SVÉ KOMFORTNÍ ZÓNY This is the sentence I have been hearing a lot recently. “Step out of your comfort zone.” It’s because I’m quite obsessed with Ted Talks and travelling and almost every single traveller knows that this is a very important factor if we want to explore the world. People tend to…
