Hello, I’m Eszter Brhlik. It’s nice to have you here!
If you asked me to describe myself in 5 words, I’d say I’m conscious, balanced, caring, goal-oriented, and adventurous. I’m an ENTJ-A.
Although I studied International Business with Entrepreneurship, Scenario Planning, and Sustainability majors, I find peaceful fulfillment in life as a writer and teacher.
To master my writing skills and find my voice, I’ve crafted more than 90 articles within 8 months. During this time, I had a part-time…
Your writing flows as you find yourself in that gentle, focused state of mind. Expressing yourself has never felt easier: the words dance and sing together in perfect harmony.
And then it flops again.
Blank paper. Dirty drafts. You can’t move forward. Your creativity sinks, and you get frustrated.
You stare at your computer, unable to put words on the screen. It’s chaotic and heavy. You feel like you’re a failure. Your words don’t dance anymore. They barely stagger.
What’s gone wrong?
The following two questions will help you punch writer’s block in the face.
Why do you write?
I’ve just turned 23.
My generation was entirely left behind in the pandemic.
We’re about to graduate and can’t find jobs. I sent more than 80 applications last year, and everybody rejected me despite having the best grades, a recommendation letter from my teachers, and even some work experiences.
Nobody needs us, which is completely understandable from the companies’ perspective. I also wouldn’t hire fresh graduates that are new to the job market in a crisis situation. That would be a waste of resources.
We were also not allowed to meet our friends. I didn’t socialize, I spent Christmas apart…
“I have this productivity anxiety
that everyone else is working harder than me
and I’m going to be left behind
cause I’m not working fast enough
and I’m wasting my time” — Rupi Kaur
It was Sunday — my only rest day. Even though I was supposed to enjoy my free day, I felt frustrated.
I worried whether I could rest ‘well enough.’
I realized the main reason I implemented rest days and self-care is to be more productive later on. I needed to optimize every day to move forward with my goals. …
“But we had protected sex.”
“Uhum, and how did the condom taste when you went down on him?” asked my friend when she realized I was unaware of the dangers of unprotected oral sex. I was a complete newbie to hookups.
Blowjobs have serious health risks. To enjoy them to the fullest, we should be informed about the whole game.
I remember the hilarious phone call I had with the STD hotline to inform myself about the consequences of a wild Saturday night. We had protected sex. I just didn't think oral sex counts too.
The hotline worker told me…
Would today’s scientists simulate a universe if they had the means?
If we suppose the answer is yes, then it’s also valid to think someone has already created a hyper-realistic world before us.
According to astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, the chances we live in someone else’s computer are 50–50.
“Maybe that’s why we can’t travel faster than the speed of light because if we could, we’d be able to get to another galaxy before they can program it. So the programmer put in that limit.” — Chuck Nice and Neil deGrasse Tyson, StarTalk
“Good writing is clear thinking made visible” — Bill Wheeler
Shani Raja, Ex-Wall Street Journal editor, says there are 7 common but not so apparent mistakes that blur sentences.
I’ve been writing and editing nearly every day since last May, and I only recently discovered them. I would’ve loved to know these quick fixes when I got started.
Use them to sharpen your writing.
The perfect recipe to scare your readers away is to go in endless circles around a topic. I know because I’ve done it many times.
Do you have something important to tell? Go ahead, don’t tease…
99% of the people fail to manifest their dreams.
The Law of Attraction still claims the universe will bring you money, health, and happiness. These assets are abundant; you just have to manifest your deepest desires.
Ask, and it will be given.
“The only reason why people do not have what they want is because they are thinking more about what they don’t want than what they want. The law is absolute and there are no mistakes. Like all the laws of nature, there is utter perfection in this law.”
Having sex can easily turn into a routine. You already know what to expect, the fire slowly burns out, and a fundamental part of your relationship gets boring.
Most couples experience a decline in their sexlife only after 6 months into the relationship. They lack novelty, lose interest, and their sex drive reduces.
How can turn such a sensual, exciting, and pleasurable part of life dull?
If you keep repeating the same activities over and over again, eventually everything gets boring. So does sex.
To keep the fire burning, you got to introduce variety. Something new, unusual, and exciting.
“For forty years, climate action has been delayed by technological promises.” climate researchers Duncan McLaren and Nils Markusson said.
Admittedly though, we have no chance without sustainable technologies. But expecting technology alone to save humanity from climate change is optimistic.
We could leverage our progress, create strict rules, introduce carbon taxes, stick to the Paris agreement, and work together globally. Or we could hope technology does the trick.
So… let’s imagine it’s 2050.
In this scenario, new technologies drive the development, although the exploitation of natural resources is still increasing. We couldn’t give up economic growth.
