I'm a work in progress! I love writing for fun (mainly short stories, informative bits and heartfelt pieces to make people happy).
This is my personal writing page.
Tuesdays with Jessie
It's Tuesday. I'm sitting at our table. The one right next to the restroom of our coffee shop. It's not even a table, really. Two green stools sitting by each other and a wooden bar fixed to the glass panel. Perfect to place our drinks and our special treat. The window looks out to a back alley. Most people would think this is an unusual choice. Having the beautiful view of the walkway by the Thames, why on Earth would two people choose to sit looking at the garbage bins in the alley? A place which most people in London choose to ignore. As all abandoned, sketchy alleys in the city.

Love Your Hair! Bring Back Scrunchies
I've never been much of a fashonista or a huge trend-follower. To be honest, I'm clueless when it comes to fashion. I'm okay with that! But, if there's one trend I would love to see come back in full force, it's this unbeatable 80s and 90s hair accessory: THE SCRUNCHIE!
A Man By The Sea
Each evening, I sit here. Witnessing the golden sun, as it prepares to sleep far in the distance. Lighting the sky with a fiery orange and red glow. I hear the horn of the cruise ship "tooting" goodbye as it sails to the next port. Three times, as dictated by maritime tradition. In contrast, I notice an old sailboat that sits quietly in the horizon, small to the eyes, making its way slowly, gliding through the waves. It used to be a party boat years ago, full of life and music. Now, it just sails from one side of the island to the other. A ghost ship. Drifting away, every day. That's the passage of time, the passage of life. The wind guides it towards its destination. The same wind that, as a light breeze, brushes my face whispering a tropical melody.

Master-ing an Investment on My Creativity

Swish and Flick: Fascinating Facts About Squirrels (and Their Tails)Top Story - March 2021
I'm an animal lover. I love pets and wild animals. I was a vegetarian for years because of animals. As a child, I loved watching Animal Planet and the Discovery Channel (remember Henry's Amazing Animals?). Years ago, during college, I even started an animal fan page. Unfortunately, as it happens, adulthood got very busy and I left some of my hobbies behind.
Royal Fever: 3 Things to Watch if you Liked "The Crown"
Please note: There are mild spoilers for "The Crown" in this article. - For the past two years, I was studying a Master's degree in London. Being a foreigner living in London, I was curious about all things related to the British Monarchy. I visited the Tower of London to see the Queen's Jewels, often walked through St. James' Park (next to Buckingham Palace) and watched the Royal Guard rehearsing early on Saturdays. I visited Windsor Palace and went room by room hooked to my audioguide listening to historical facts (you'll find that I'm a bit of a history nerd).
