Should you hate or love Mr. Solitude?

You know Mr. Solitude. We all do. It’s a nice guy sometimes, or a not-so-nice person too. He doesn’t change; he’s the same guy, but you don’t know him well enough. None of us do. And yet we like to say we dislike him or even, some of us, like him. Just as you can’t […]

Life Light

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 […]

Remembering with sounds and smells

This is something curious I thought about several days ago. I know, and I figure you know too, that senses trigger memories sometimes.

I also highlighted the fact that there’s no need for them to be jokes, rather than plain knowledge. Specially if that knowledge brings you some kind of emotion: sharing that emotion with someone else, and […]

Inside-jokes for relationships?

I don’t know if it’s a well-known fact —or if it’s a fact at all— that inside-jokes help a lot in build a relationship with anybody. Friends, colleagues, even people you like in a “couple” way, as far as I know, feel closer to you when you can establish a joke only the two —or […]

Yes

Yes. The power of a single word.

I don’t really like the concept of neurolinguistics and honestly I find it unrealistic. Yet I do find interesting the words “yes” and “no”. Not as words per se, but as essences of affirmation and negation, respectively. People usually tend to balance, to think affirmatively about some thoughts, actions, behavior, and negatively about other thoughts, […]
