When life tells us “You’re just wrong”

I’ve been out for a while, out of my hometown, out of the internet (or at least my appearance has been severely decreased) and while that was natural due to a big change in my life (moving out to college), what never appeared to me as “normal” was my lack of ideas for writings for […]

Loosing focus with Music

Days ago I wrote an article talking about Why do we like to lose focus? and frankly I do believe that we actually look for distractions.
