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…

‘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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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….
