As the self imposed quarantine continues, the Natural Born humans discover new ways of living. Since in the "imperfect world" there is no imposed order, the Savages must show resilience, self control, compassion, empathy, altruism and other characteristics that are not in their habits. Some governments show surprisingly good management of the pandemic and, even… Continue reading Black Mirror Episode “Day 5”
I wake up, yet again, on the 4th day of what looks like a scene from Huxley’s Brave New World. The year is 2020, 16th of March. I am not within the confined State World, where engineered bred humans are soothed by SOMA, the rules are clear, the pain or depression doesn't exist and each… Continue reading Brave new world
Be a Lady They Said Paul McLean on Vimeo. This particular clip created quite the stirs. I resonate deeply with pretty much all the lines narrated here. Only that feels like yet, many things are still left unsaid . Seeing it more than once, I started counting how many of those I have encountered and… Continue reading Be a lady they said
“I am a woman.” “Resignedness is only abdication and flight, there is no other way out for woman than to work for her liberation.” (639) So i read and read and the more i read, the more i get angry. Ok, ok, i am angry naturally, is just a gift that i have - some… Continue reading The F word. Feminism, that is.
Mercury Retrograde is back to hunt our lives and i am back with it, to complain about. I will try not to (complain), however, it's very hard since the dark winter is not gone , Dennis The Storm is friendly haunting us and it's not even the end of February. The year started pretty strong,… Continue reading 2020 post apocalyptic journal
Fie ca. You know the drill. Ce am mai facut anu' asta si ce mai facem la anu'? Nu? Așa e trendu’ - facem un bilanț al anului care tocmai se încheie si (re)scriem noi liste lungi cu rezolutii pentru 2020. Bineînțeles începem cu mâncatul sănătos si făcut de sport. De mâine, oricum e imposibil… Continue reading ce mai facem în 2020
As the year comes to the end, as usual, the celebrations get ahead and people start organising the pre- fun of the actual festive days to come. So there are a few weeks before that, where you will probably attend a series of parties and social gatherings, supposedly to wind up after the hard work… Continue reading The social pressure to drink
As I was complaining in one of my previous posts about having to wake up on a Friday, I had to wake up in the same (extreme I would say) conditions on Monday. So I make it to work. I drink half of my coffee after having to be nice to people, I get into… Continue reading Care to share an embarrassing moment from 2019?
Fridays. The eternal day of hope for all the corporate people out there. Early December, on a Friday. Waking up at 7 (is this even an hour to be awake at any level?), it's dark all right. The decision - it's really too dark to get up. So you stare at your ceiling a bit… Continue reading Dark Friday mornings
I know you've missed me, so voila, i am back. Don't i always? As the norm in the winter, my hibernation is right on, this one is no exception. Especially since i have moved in my ultra Instagram(ble) new place. It was a hassle, but hey, it was all worth it. Now, i would literally… Continue reading black friday, black widow, black is the new black
