Flatmates from hell and other stories

I’ve been living in shared flats for almost 5 years now (miss you, mum) and I have had all kind of flatmates, from the absolute best (please, move back in with me) to the very very very indeed very bad ones. I refuse to call anyone the worst flatmate because I have heard worse stories than the ones to follow, but, man oh man, I still don’t understand where these people find the energy to be actively a pain in the ass.

Drowned in data

I like numbers. They always used to make sense, like some kind of Kantian category that was just needed filling with the outside world. Basically, I was a maths nerd.

I was, note the past tense, a maths nerd. Liberal arts education has made my matrix knowledge a thing of the past. I am confident, with the usual optimism of people who believe that past events can help predict future events. If I was smart then, I surely will be smart now. Surely. Of course. I am.

Why men should be feminists

The topic of the century, isn’t it? Feminism, that awesome word that so much fear causes some people.

I am not going to enter on the debate of the thousand faces of feminism, because I think it is clear that, like with any other movement, there are people who are very angry and people who are more radical and a million ways to twist a simple concept. Feminism just wants equality for everyone, regardless of who you are, how you are, your sexuality, ethnicity or where you live. It’s a simple ‘hey, we are all humans on this planet, let’s have the same starting rights and expectations’. Okay, so I have entered the debate a little bit. But I have tried to hurry past it and you might not have even noticed. Continue reading “Why men should be feminists”
