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…

HOW TO ACHIEVE PEACE?

This is the question that people have been asking themselves since the beginning of time. What is peace? And if there is such thing as peace, how can we find it? It’s quite funny, actually, because I’ve been thinking about this question for three weeks now and I started thanks to an anime Naruto (if…

IT’S RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF YOU

I have always hated the town where I was born. It’s in the north of the Czech Republic and it’s in a region which suffers from a high unemployment, there are lots of factories around us and my town has this horrible communistic look since most of the buildings were built during the times of…

‘BEING SINGLE IS WRONG’?

About a year ago my friend Veronika sent me a youtube video of some boy (I don’t remember who it was, unfortunately) who was talking about being single and being in a relationship. He said something like: “People think that being single is wrong, somehow. They think that I’m not okay if I’m not in…

WHAT NARUTO HAS TAUGHT ME

When I was young, I used to watch the first seasons of Naruto and then I stopped. Two months ago my friends started watching it and I heard that it had already ended, so I decided to give it a try. And I don’t regret anything. 7 weeks of watching this amazing anime and sometimes…

ISN’T SEX OVERESTIMATED?

I’ve grown up in a world where sex always has seemed to be very important. My family and I are surrounded by people (especially men, that’s the reason why I hated all people with a pennis until I was like 17) who cheat, lie and build their life on attraction and sex. Then I became…

WHY I LOVE SECOND-HAND SHOPS

I love second-hand shops. And in this article I would like to show you why. Get ready… steady… go! Here are the reasons: It’s good for the environment. I have never minded buying clothes in a second-hand shops but I didn’t do it that much, I must admit. I prefered fast fashion (I didn’t even…

IT DOES FEEL LIKE HEAVEN

It does feel like heaven. I am sitting on a plane and just a few minutes ago I was down there, on the ground. The sky was grey and it was raining, our plane was delayed and the world seemed to be a little bit too boring. And now I’m here. We kept flying through…

HOW TO LOVE YOURSELF

A few months ago we had a girl visiting our high school and doing a presentation about studying abroad. She was the same age as my classmates and I and she said she was applying for medical studies in the UK and in Denmark (at least I think so). That presentation was not very new…

PARTY LIFE

(I wrote this post in January but it all vanished, I don’t know why, so I’m writing it again.) Two weeks ago I’ve been to this party that my friends threw. And I got drunk of course. I always get drunk when I go to some party. And when I was younger (that seems like…

IT’S OKAY TO BE ALONE

Every time I am at some event (which is like once in three months haha) and then I go home, people ask me: “You’re going by bus? You’re going by car? Don’t you want to go to some pub with us?” And I simply reply: “I walk. Thanks, but no.” And nobody really gets it….
