A College Student's Guide To Sorting Out Finances

Moving out from my parents' home and moving to a whole new town for college meant a huge deal to me, not only because I was throwing myself into a completely new situation of life and starting something that I've never known before, but also because I had much more responsibilities then and I only slowly realized how serious it actually was.

A very important and at times problematic point was that I had to take care of my own finances. I didn't have to deal with all of that before as my mother would take care of the finances in the household and just teached me how much money I could or could not spend. She was the one planning how much and what groceries to buy, she was the one paying the bills for our home, for our education, for electricity, the Internet.

And then I started my own household in my very own flat and kind of went crazy. I was terrible at my spendings and constantly felt bad. I don't have a shopping addiction or anything but I kind of just lost the control over the money that I had and the money that I gave away.

How To Meditate

Some of you have asked me to write a little about how I practice meditation at all. You were interested in hearing why I meditate, whether it really works and how it works.

Everyone experiences meditation differently and it works differently for everybody. Some need a little more time to practice it effectively than others. So if you're a beginner or just simply interested - this is the post for you.

About The Time I Got Catfished : Part I

Ever seen the MTV Show Catfish? It's a reality show on MTV by Nev Schulman who, along with his camera buddy Max Joseph, seeks to help people find their online romance who seem to not be who they say they are. Nev himself was catfished before and his brother and a friend filmed the whole thing, making it into a big hit documentary called Catfish.

Well, if you're familiar with the show, you'll know that the act of catfishing people means to lure someone into a relationship by making a fake profile with a fake identity on social media. So the catfish is someone who pretends to be someone they're not by using pictures of someone else and using a different name, age.

Well, in the last post I mentioned that I was catfished for almost two years and just recently found out about who was really behind the fake profile. Some of you were interested in hearing about that story and I am very excited to share it, not because it makes a good story but because there are still many many people out there who are being catfished and whose trust has been crushed by this act.

My Life As An Introvert

First of all I feel like giving a definition on the word introvert because I’ve seen many introverts being misunderstood and I’ve seen the term being looked upon as if it was a name for some kind of disease.

On the other hand the term has already evolved everywhere and is now one of the most detailed personality trait, probably of you and me and many other people.

Do keep in mind that it is not supposed to put you in a box but help you understand that you’re not the only one feeling the way you feel and that there is simply a term for it so you don’t have to explain loads to people who don’t get your ways of living.
