The most wholesome moments of the week 

Somehow we always find a way to blame our mood on the current circumstances. Why wouldn’t we? It’s much easier to be happier once this semester is over, we’ll have a lot more energy to go to the gym when it’s not raining, and things will just overall be a lot better…sometime in the future, doesn’t matter when, the only point is: not now. Last week, I tried a little experiment: I wanted to see what happens when I stop procrastinating on being more positive. Here’s how it went. 

STOP GOING HUNGRY, JUST FIND A JOB! 

As young people on the brink of adulthood, existing somewhere between wanting to spend all our money on comic books and video games and needing to actually spend money on utilities, at one point we all encounter the struggle that we don’t actually have any money to spend. An easy solution, of course, is to find a job. Is it really that easy though?

Cultural Differences – Australia vs Hungary

It’s been a bit over a month since I moved over to Australia, and this being my second visit here, I’ve been noticing some things.

So, without further ado, here are a few things that made me stop in my tracks as a Hungarian living in Australia.

Two of the most influential literary figures of 20th century Hungary, Dezső Kosztolányi and Frigyes Karinthy were known for their interest in the human psyche, philosophy and original sense of humor. Away from their typewriters they fostered a close and almost childlike friendship, while having mutual admiration for each other. It was the true bromance that transformed both of their lives as well as Hungarian literature.

The Batman – Here we go again

After almost a year of delay, we finally got the long-awaited new Batman movie. The movie is now at 700 million dollars at the box office, making more than Justice League.

Is it only going downhill from here? – managing a quarter-life crisis

Each phase of a person’s life entails its own hardships and challenges, but perhaps the most difficult and transformative period is what we go through from age 18 to 30. It is during this era that people are expected to build the foundations of their adult life. Safe to say that the choices we make during these years determine how we will live the rest of our lives, so no wonder why many young people crack under the pressure and sink into a quarter-life crisis.
