Why Am I The Only Girl Here? (War Gaming)

2520734First of all, sorry for my delay in writing about Sky’s and Lotta’s adventures. I’ve been so busy trying to get my student visa application in order, which honestly is a great pain in the butt. I will get the second part (and last) story of Sky finished next week.

In the meantime, I wanted to share an experience and ask anyone that might  be (or have been) in the same situation as me. Read more…

My Thoughts On “We Are ‘Synthetic Children’ And We Agree With Dolce & Gabbana”

Well then, let’s do it! Another touchy subject. Read more…

My sketch of Sky

Sitting on the edge of Platform 11, Sky tried her best to forget about the nightmare that was about to come to life on the very airship she called her home. She felt the pull of air as her legs danced freely outside the massive metal frame. A friendly technician called out her name, warning her about the dangers of relaxing so close to an open gate.

The life of a foximunk is not as easy as one would think.

When a foximunk is born, a ritual is immediately performed to determine what magical ability they innately possess.

Sounds fun, doesn’t it? Read more…

Unfinished map of Lotta’s world. Once I’m done with it I will also give it a name!

The silence in the room felt so heavy it was bearing down on Lotta, bringing her closer and closer towards the floor. Babi had not said a word since she finished telling him about their troubles and his stare was piercing right through her. To Lotta’s dismay he did not look as amused as she had hoped. Her gaze jumped from Babi to his old bookshelf, to his even older desk, to Babi again and then decided that the floor was the safest bet. She found the cracks in the wooden planks extremely fascinating. Read more…

My Thoughts on Feminism

Feminism.

Lately, this seems to be quite a touchy subject. From what I’ve observed, Western society is divided at least in three basic groups on this matter: pro-feminism, anti-feminism, and I-don’t-really-care-about-feminism. Of course, it gets more complicated than that. There are so many different interpretations of what feminist theory is in the first place.

In general, feminism strives for gender equality in every sphere and institution of our social world, from domestic to public, from private to government, and so on. There is, however, issues with how some feminists in our society present their ideas and opinions, which a lot of times create misunderstandings. Read more…
