I Was Afraid of the Infodemic
Although I was never active on social media, since 2018 up to 2020 I occasionally shared some contents and did the random activities that most people do on the internet: look at photos and videos, like, comment, and so on.
How Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Affect Me
After almost 10 years of struggles and fights, I have barely recovered from Anorexia Nervosa. Even though I eat reasonable amount of healthy food, I am still on vitamin pills. If I don’t take my pills, I become very weak, and I cannot work efficiently. It seems that I haven’t come yet to fill up the gaps of around 5 years of repulsion toward foods.
Why Abortion Should Be Legal Everywhere
As many of you have probably noticed, this post-covid era has become one of the most retrograde moments for many powerful countries, like Russia with its invasion decision, or the US, as the Supreme Court has removed the constitutional landmark right to abortion and returned this issue at state level.
Black Men Are So In Shape
Sometimes we see discrimination and prejudice against Black people as a unique problem that affects all types of Black people equally, regardless of their gender, origin, sexual orientation, marital status, mental and physical health conditions, social and/or economic status, age, size, skin tone, etc.
Online Dating Is Almost Inevitable
If you haven’t noticed this yet, I’ll post it boldly: I am on tinder now. That means, I am ready to be someone’s girlfriend! Now I feel more stable, I have better relationships with my body and inner selves, and I need to enjoy life other ways than just with family members, friends, and amazing acquaintances. That is, I need to start dating some nice guys. Who knows? In the long run I might find my perfect match.
Black Inside, (Not) Black Outside (Part II)
Recently, I published a text about job interviews in which I describe my experiences and share some tips. Afterwards, I realized that this article lacks nuances because it focuses only on the applicants. Getting hired doesn’t depend only on the applicant, but most often on different other factors, like the interviewer(s) backgrounds and biases, the whole corporative culture, the society values, and the applicant social and ethnical community.
Right now, I am in a long-lasting process of trying to know myself better and getting to be self-conscious about my actions and feelings. In the meantime, I am also analyzing my relationship with foods and drinks, which are two of the principal elements that maintain us alive and healthy.
It has been a week now since I cannot write a whole sentence without being blocked. It is not because I have no ideas. I have plenty of them. The real problem is that they are mixed in my head, like strips of spaghetti twisted altogether in a tiny bowl. Under this circumstance, it is almost impossible to take one without messing up the other strips.
