Many people around the world research the history of Greece. Undoubtedly, it is useful to learn about the broad histories, but what about the specific people who made ancient Greece so great? Those who glance at the history books might come across the name of Aspasia, and uncover her role in the history of Ancient Athens. But unless they probe a bit more deeply, they’ll never know how grateful to her we all should be.

Some sources and references mention her only as an Athenian beauty. She organized the coolest parties. She had the coolest friends. Her husband, Pericles turned the whole 5th century into a golden era for human history. A period of success few societies have accomplished. …

Every day we listen to people that struggle and feel depressed about the fact that there is so much evil in the world. To be honest, I was this kind of person. I couldn’t emotionally handle any of the news I heard and read. And this is normal behavior. It is normal to feel sad in a sad reality. And we need to accept this feeling of sadness.

In order to understand why there is so much evil in the world, we need to dig deep into the roots of our ancestors and relative species.

We all have heard people saying: “I don’t understand why humans are so evil”, “The human race is the worst species on planet Earth”, “I feel ashamed to be a human”, “We should go extinct”.

Some students of mine often come to me and tell me that some of their Greek friends and relatives tell them that, no matter how hard they try they keep on having issues with their accent. They make mistakes and the way they speak doesn’t seem natural or correct. So, today I felt the need to help you how to become a perfect student, not only in Greek but in any foreign language.

In order to do this, if you have experienced something like what we mentioned above, I want you to go back at this moment. …


The ultimate guide to failure

Do you feel broken deep inside? Do you know horrible things about yourself that others don’t know and you think that you deserve to suffer? Are you at this point in your life that you enjoy your self-destruction?

It doesn’t matter that others made you believe that. It doesn't matter if those that made you believe that feel great. You are a horrible person for some reason you have made up for yourself, and you must pay. No one will notice it, and you don’t deserve it. But you must pay.

I am the most appropriate person to write an article for this, so, I made a shortlist of things that are all tested and they work. It took me 8 years to test them and 4 minutes to write them down. They work for losing your time, time that never comes back. 100% warranty, no money back. You will lose everything. In order to recover after all this successful failure, you will need too much effort to gain your pride again. …

In beautiful places

the moment of goodbye

I told the land and sky

I will be back.

I will be back,

no matter the roads that

will be open to me

like a lover in flames

I will be back,

no matter the seas that

will call for my eyes with temptation.

I will come back I said,

and left

But now my map is changing.

That’s life

I can’t hold it back.

North seas will be the lands of desire

new waves and roads to hold my heart

Bittersweet to think

that my promise to come back

was my sadness that I won’t

and that this was the last goodbye.

Goodbye to the place

but also

to myself.

This young self and young soul

that tried to hold the spirit of the moment

forever.


My beautiful journey, that started from zero.

Give five minutes to read my story. I am not a guru that has the ten bullet point list that will transform your life in a month. I am just a simple life student and person, that made it. This is as simple and brilliant, as it sounds.

Some months ago I would dream that one day I would write an article here in Medium with a title like this. Or maybe, I would not even imagine that. The fact that I wanted it, didn’t mean it would happen. Or, it did?

This month last year I was working at a cafe and I was teaching at the same time. Generally, all my adult life I would do two jobs at the same time. Teaching together with everything else you can imagine. Plus any volunteer job, especially at the local shelter for stray dogs of the town. …

The greatest pleasure of my struggle

is that

every time I hear of something stupid

I say to myself:

“That’s not part of my world”.

I didn’t struggle that much,

I didn’t work so hard

to deal with things of a world I don’t belong to anymore.

My struggles and my work became the wings I constructed for myself

with stones and blocks

thrown to my heart

stones and blocks of lies and unawareness.

I have worked enough to climb to another world

I met humans that did the same too.

Here we know that in order to climb,

you have to dig deep.

We are building a future where

stupidity will feel ashamed to spit

its stress and lack of love.

I am working for this

so please,

do not interrupt me with your

primitive stress.

In order to get to the point to understand how important is SEO for Medium articles, we need to get through the journey that helps our mind improve and understand how this really works.

Some years ago, I found myself searching for ways to get into the writing online industry. I was torn apart from a glamourous situation of my poor and destructive choices, and I found writing as my only choice to stand on my feet again.

Imagine, I had barely grabbed a pencil and a paper even to write a list for the supermarket. In my whole life. But at this point, I found writing as the only way to express the grief and frustration I felt in my heart. …
