Confession of a coffee addict

Addict? Yep. 24Hours without coffee. It's the greatest hell I could possibly imagine. And I've proven that it is the greatest hell. The most horrible day of my life, filled with grumpiness, headaches and continuous depression. A life without caffeine is not for me.

A judge of classic philosophers: Aristotle

Whenever I see I quote that I love, without knowing the author, I know chances are it's probably something Aristotle said or wrote. Without ever really knowing anything about him besides that he was a great philosopher in ancient Greek times, I've always loved his words.

Weekend Edition – 5 Questions to Ask When You Don’t Know What to Write

I don’t usually like to reblog posts, but this is one post that I’d want to come back to again and again.

Change, in search of Motivation

There are certain thoughts that go through my head just around ten-to-ten. Thoughts like my untouched Business studies notes. All the books that I want to read. An empty wheelbarrow that I still want to plant things in. The book that I'm writing, but lately has been going very slow. I even think of this … Continue reading Change, in search of Motivation
