In japanese there is a word that means “foreigner”, a person that does not belong to this place. It’s Gaijin, and if you will ever happen to stay in japan for a long long time (like 10 years), chances are you might still be called gaijin, because you will still be gaijin. The curious thing […]

how to raise an argument

Let’s say you felt betrayed by a friend and now you both hate each other, how do you manage that? You might try to ignore it, fake the relationship, or think about how to fix it. Maybe you won’t be able to fix the issue with him/her, but at least having such desire is a […]

we don’t need you

We don’t need your presence when we’re sick, we don’t need your comfort when we’re sad, we don’t need your help when we’re building our ikea table, we don’t need your suggestion when we’re facing a problem.
