I have pondered about this article for a long time now. What kind of materials do people need that are feasible and convincing enough to make them want to pay attention to women empowerment? We get it. the topic isn’t so new nowadays. You see it being talked about on social media and it’s on the headlines every now and then. But I still think that it needs a little bit more attention.
No, my February playlist does not contain love songs. Well, for the most part, at least no.
I take my playlist wherever I go and I just can’t leave without my music. Come on, I know you can very much relate to that. Although, I’m not a fan of the usual pop you hear on Spotify’s Top 100 so you most definitely won’t see Ariana Grande’s 7 Rings in this playlist.
You’re in the middle of December, re-evaluating the year that is 2018, and then you suddenly think of a good resolution for 2019. Immediately, you think: Will I actually be able to follow this through? Hold that thought, keep reading and you’ll never have to ask yourself that question again.
If you’ve already come up with a list of your new year’s resolutions, congratulations! You’re a step ahead of making 2019 YOUR year (yes, claim it). Listing it all down seems easy alright, all you’ll need are a pen & paper and a sane mind. But after that comes even the greater struggle: keeping up with the list.
WE GET IT, YOU’RE NOT A MORNING PERSON.
Or maybe you are and if that’s the case, then good for you! I bet planning the rest of your day isn’t as complicated for the lot of you who are. Although, it is a fact that mornings can be such a drag for some of us that organizing tasks and to-do’s for that specific day could be such a burden. Whether you are a morning person or not, technology (specifically our phones) is one common thing we all have. So, better yet that we start taking advantage of it in the most efficient way possible.
AH, LIFE. *SIGHS*
You probably have heard of the so-called “living in the moment” concept a couple of times before and you’re thinking: How exactly? In traditional terms, it’s called mindfulness, which is all about being in a state of open and intentional attention on the present; you become both an observer and an admirer of life as it happens in front of you, and you live each moment with pure gratitude.
WHEN IN DOUBT, READ MURAKAMI.
Okay, let’s get straight into it and I’ll try to do this as spoiler-free as I possibly can. The novel was, as expected, really great. It contains seven stories of, well—men without women. Not literally though, there were female characters, but eventually as you read on, you will see why it’s called Men Without Women. These seven stories are entitled Drive My Car, Yesterday, An Independent Organ, Kino, Scheherazade, Samsa In Love, and the last one, I think, would be more interesting if you find out for yourself. I’m not sure if it will give you the same ‘wow’ effect but it turned out to be the main point of the story so I had a little eureka moment after reading it.
