A post of dreams

As September approaches, I get this itch for new beginnings. Back to school, new stationary, packed lunches… Those things you grew to hate throughout the year seemed almost exciting in September. “Who will my teachers be?” “Will I like the new subjects?” “Will there be a new kid this year?”… Maybe I am going through…

Reminiscing about Mallorca

This week has been my first week at a new job, and after a very slow two months in my last position, and month of holiday in between jobs I am finding myself slightly overwhelmed. I forgot what it feels like to always have a couple of unread emails in your inbox that you just…

I want to be funny, so bad it’s kinda lame

Today in the series “Isa tries to tackle the patriarchy one step at a time”… Humor! How does this have anything to do with the patriarchy, you may ask? Because of articles such as this one: Why Women Aren’t Funny Long story short (no need to waste your time reading all of that bullsh*t) we…
