I love travel, but it’s not a Soulmate

Over the past 4 years, I’ve traveled to 12 countries. I’ve ziplined in Argentina, hiked up a volcano in Costa Rica, and eaten waffles in Belgium. In short, I think it’s safe to say that I’m living the millennial’s dream. On my travels, I’ve racked up frequent flyer miles, learned foreign languages, and made irreplaceable […]

Sick literature

Today, I had the disgusting experience of reading a small tale, that was contained in a book assigned as homework for high school students —I will not mention the author’s name nor the title of the story, as I don’t want to give free advertising—.

The Power of a Story: Revisiting What I Saw at the Abortion

While he had always considered himself to be pro-choice, he had never actually seen an abortion take place. However, what he witnessed at the abortion changed […]

Empty social media

All social networks are full with groups and web sites with “light” content. PlayGround, VICE News and BuzzFeed are only a few examples of the great opinion leaders of our generation. In the age of the instantaneous information, we can’t escape from short and colorful videos explaining how the world works; and even if they […]
