Yesterday I visited a restaurant with Orsi. There were two toilets. One for men, the other reserved for women. And I asked myself why even the smallest places tend to gender-divide their toilets. And why is it that – as a man – choosing the “female toilet” instead of waiting
I learned to apply and get jobs through impressing the audience, the employer. I learned to polish my CV. I practiced interviews with my friend who asked me the standard questions. And after each rejection I edited my application letter. But shortly after living in Thailand as a semi-pro fighter,
A toddler has no definition of itself. She doesn’t care about career, or future. She lives in the now. Like a dog… or a chicken – she just exists. She doesn’t tend to take things personally neither does she accuse or bear grudges. She tries, she fails, she learns. “You’re
For years the image of two men making love together made me shiver, and desperately trying to think about something else. Even talking with or about a gay made me feel insecure and distant. Why? Perhaps because I learned that it’s “not normal”, disgusting, “in-human”. Until I realised that sexual

When my father left school he basically had two choices. Either go to the butchery and become a butcher. Or go to the fabric and become a laborer. He chose second. When I left school I had not two but hundreds of choices. And it left me nervous while desperately
A few days ago I bought a small motorbike. “Welcome to Mexico,” said the mechanic today with a pitiful smile. After almost a day the bike broke down and wouldn’t start again. I bought a new battery, made a service – and still, the bike would just not start again.
We can count Euros, Dollars and Pounds. 1 dollar, 2 dollar, 3 dollar. Yesterday, after a conversation, I’ve had this thought that what we can’t really count is “money”. 1 money, 2 money, 3 money. It brought me to the notice that there are countable things, and others that are
