Pornography: shame, reality, and society. Let’s evaluate.

hypocrite (n.) 1. a person who pretends to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that he or she does not actually possess, especially a person whose actions belie stated beliefs. 2. a person who feigns some desirable or publicly approved attitude, especially one whose private life, opinions or statements belie his other public statements. Before I dive into this juicy topic, I need to clear few things up. If for any reason you don’t agree with the opinions stated in this blog post, you are welcome to start a lovely discussion on either any of my social media platforms…

I want to remember…

Be prepared to be hit with a block of cheese in your face wth this post. The beach. I want to remember how sand feels between my fingers, I want to engrave in my memory the pattern of waves. I want to be able to smell the salt in the air in 50 years time, I want to be able to recall the calming swish of the ocean late at night when I have nothing but troubles clouding my mind. I want to remember the blue of the ocean in the dark months of winter and I wish to feel…

What is your biggest fear?

Today my work college from Iran is hosting dinner for twenty people in celebration of the year’s longest night, which is only one second longer than last night was or tomorrow night will be, this is their tradition of showing appreciation for every second. When I was little, I used to fear heights and spiders. Over the year, I’ve developed a new fear, much stronger and much more intimidating than an eight-legged insect (is spider even an incest?). Time is now my biggest fear. I’ve never understood the comfort in saying ‘time will heal you‘ or ‘give it time‘. The…

I always pray or give thanks to the animal before I eat it, so doesn’t this make it okay? – or why I went vegan, part2.

This is the second part of my ‘explaining veganism’ entry, if you haven’t yet read part one of this then please go and do that now. As explained before, I will touch up to some of the FAQ that I have gotten whenever I mention my lifestyle choices. If you have any more questions then send them my way on my social media channels. Veganism is not healthy. Most of the time, this is not even a question, but more of a statement. Yes, it is possible to become malnourished on a vegan diet, just like it is a possibility if you…

Do vegans care about animals more than people? – or why I went vegan, part1.

This is part one of two part blog entries about veganism. This should explain and reflect on all the why’s, but’s, how’s and so on and so forth. Part one (this post) will basically highlight how I came about going vegan, how I am adjusting and how I find it. Part two will be sort of like FAQ’s and anything else that I hadn’t covered in part one. I think I have already answered the ‘why’ question with the educate yourself on veganism blog entry. For those, who didn’t bother reading that post – I went vegan for humanitarian, ethical and…

In photos: Rome (March 2015)

I’m sure everyone has experienced and taken part in those 4 am drunken conversations in someone’s kitchen with fellow peeps where the discussions vary from politics to my-life-would-be-perfect-if or I-really-want-to-do-this – the true moment of vulnerability where you for once are not afraid to voice your ambitions out loud. Yeah, you know what I’m talking about. I would always blab about how I want to push myself out of my comfort zone and how I want to see the world, you know really see the world. So when I got my good paycheck I decided to book a trip to…

PR: pointing fingers will not solve the issue.

I would like to think of Ryan Holliday as the Maleficent of PR world, the supposed evil character yet when looking closer maybe not so evil? Self-proclaimed media manipulator Ryan Holiday has pulled a stunt after a stunt shocking the publics and building his marketing success. He is best known as the former director of marketing for American Appeal and for the Planned Parenthood stunt while working with the New York Times bestselling author Tucker Max. In 2012 Holiday made headlines (and not pretty ones) with a PR stunt that not only raised eyebrows but also got public reacting similarly…

What was your first time like?

Note, this post was originally published December 16th, 2014 on my old blog, edited November 27th, 2016. I decided to only leave a small extract of the original post as to be honest for the most part the content was rubbish, but I quite liked this one paragraph.  First times is a funny concept, when we are born we are innocent and programmed to love, this is the time span when we tend to experience a lot of firsts – first words, first steps, first teeth, first tears, but with time the firsts take a sharp U-turn and with years…

Minimalism, veganism and envirounment.

“The clothing industry is the second largest polluter in the world … second only to oil,” the recipient Eileen Fisher of an environmental award told a stunned Manhattan audience earlier this year.  – Source I’ve been vegan for nearly two years now. I’ve worked part-time in retail even longer. I’ve seen the waste retail produces and this is why I believe minimalism and veganism go hand in hand. For someone who’s primary reason for switching to a vegan lifestyle were the environmental impacts, I find minimalism just as important. Words cannot describe the amount of paper, plastic and other waste…
