Take the Wheel


At the end of 2016 I found myself lacking motivation.

I wasn’t in the mood to read a book, even if I was craving for a good story, I couldn’t even write a post, even if the ideas were floating in my head. I was feeling like there was an invisible wall stopping me and just like that I stopped doing all those things that made me happy.  

At first I thought that my day job had gotten the best of me and that was of course the reason I wasn't writing. Then I watched a ted talk about procrastination.

The Clock of Time




The year is almost over and it’s time again to look back and evaluate the months that passed by. Was it a productive year? Did you use your time wisely?

Lately I’ve come to realize the importance of time, and I don’t mean time as we know it, not the minutes that are ticking steadily on our perfect and accurate clocks. No. I’m talking about our personal time, our internal clock that moves and adjusts according to our needs and moments.  

So, what time does that clock say?

People




There are many people in our lives. 

There are those who are bound to us like parents, sisters, brothers, cousins and uncles. Those are the people we didn’t choose, but we somehow “inherited” since we came to their lives and they came to ours without any consent.

Then there are those we encounter while growing up. Friends, lovers, colleagues and those whom we just kindly wave as we pass by the halls, many times not even knowing their names.

The Scorch Trials




It’s been a while since I read the first book in this series. Although The Maze Runner was a book that thrilled me, I didn’t feel the need to keep reading. So I kept postpone it until I saw the books collecting dust on my shelf and I thought: It’s now or never.

So let’s take a look at The Scorch Trials.

Feed the Reader



Reading is a huge part of my life. I’m one of those people who can proudly call herself a reader. Yes, I am a reader and I enjoy every single part of the reading process.

It starts with going to a bookstore, walking slowly around the aisles, reading back covers, observing the covers and even sniffing the books when no one is watching. I pick them up and then carefully put them back down as if I disturbed the story when I touched it.
