The painful truth of what comes after a knee surgery

First of all, I clearly understand that if you have never gone or do not have planned to go through a surgery, you will most likely ignore this article faster than a hot girl who deletes the messages of her beta orbiters. Don’t worry, until three months ago I would have done exactly the same, as this was none of my business. Nevertheless, in case you have already gone through surgery or unfortunately you will need to go soon, then I strongly recommend you to read the following lines. I […]

Come on lazy boy, it is time for you to get in shape!

First of all, I must tell you that I am a “normal guy”. I do not have a super physique which makes all the girls immediately turning their heads at me. But I do my best and I can say that I have never had a girl who had not been impressed with my body, when I take off my clothes. Or that, at least, has said something like “you know Andreas, you should work out more because you look a little bit flaccid/out of shape/weak”. I am a person […]

Caffeine: the disguised drug (almost) nobody talks about

I have been drinking coffee my entire life. As probably have you. Or as most of the people you know. It is taken as a fact that drinking coffee is almost obligatory – especially if you belong to the Rat race and need to be kept awake and alert – and that its advantages are endless: From preventing dementia and Alzheimer, to reducing the risk of diabetes or lessening the symptoms of such diseases as Parkinson, passing through making you happier (and therefore not depressed), cleverer and sharper and ending […]

The child is grown, the dream is gone

I remember when I was 20: the head full of dreams, the world on the palms of my hands, a bright tomorrow. Basically, everything was (falsely) possible and if today did bring what I wanted, it would surely come soon. In this new millennium, when a regular guy grows up in any given western city, there are two ingredients which are always present in his everyday’s menu: scarcity and illusion. Scarcity because society tells him that he will never be rich and that he must study and word hard to […]

How much shall you sacrifice your sleep in order to be productive?

In this modern jungle that never rests and towards which one is always running behind and trying to catch up with, every creator, self-made man, entrepreneur or artist struggles every day with basically two things: (lack of) inspiration/willpower and time management. While the former is clearly what pushes one forward, what turns the average into great or what even makes us evolve as a specie, I prefer to leave it out of the scope of this article, since I would most likely need to write a book to cover all […]

Welcome to my world

I want to introduce myself. I know you do not give a shit and that the internet is full of people like me. But I still want to introduce myself. Not that I am needing more friends or looking for attention, but just because I want it. The world is getting more and more disconnected and packed with individuals who do not know what they really want. Actually, the first thing you will know about me is that I have the opposite problem: it is difficult for me to know what […]
