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…

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT SOCIAL MEDIA

CO MILUJU NA SOCIÁLNÍCH MÉDIÍCH There are times when I get obssesed with things. First it’s the Big Bang Theory, then it’s the Harry Potter books again, then it’s Naruto… and what happens during these times is that I cannot stop thinking about it. Or talking about it. Or living just for that single addiction…

WHAT NARUTO HAS TAUGHT ME

When I was young, I used to watch the first seasons of Naruto and then I stopped. Two months ago my friends started watching it and I heard that it had already ended, so I decided to give it a try. And I don’t regret anything. 7 weeks of watching this amazing anime and sometimes…
