Read in EnglishBeri v slovenščini



Ever had a day when you’re feeling down, unexplainable sick-like, but you’re not actually physically sick, you just feel wrong? You can’t get comfortable no matter what, you don’t really feel hungry but you still eat, you’re tired but you can’t sleep? You have so many things to do, yet you do nothing, and the long to-do list keeps popping in the back of your mind?
There are many different it levels of anxiety, and this is just one of them.
Of course, I’m no expert on the topic, all I have to say about it I read in articles and books.
I used to call it ‘overthinking’. I thought everybody does it, and they do, but people who are anxious do it more often and more intensely. There will be people in your life who will make you feel like shit about it, make you feel bad about yourself just because you don’t think or process information the same way they do.
Do yourself a favor and stay away from people like that.
My friend gave me this great advice; if you have…

Why, As a Slovenian, I'm Not Proud of Melania Trump

It appears like the entire Slovenia is screaming at me about Melania, and what a great woman she is, and how much she has done for our country.
Now, don’t get me wrong – I’m not hating on Melania. But I don’t love her either. I’m indifferent of her.
What should I be proud of, exactly? What does she even do? And I mean – what did she do before becoming the first lady (not like that is a job, basically it’s an involuntary non-paid position)? What did she stand for? What does she stand for?

I know that now she supposedly stands against cyber bullying, but that feels so forced – like someone came to her right after Trump was elected, and gave her a list of things she could speak for, and she just randomly chose cyber bullying. She really doesn’t feel invested in it, but you can’t blame her – she’s not a politician (although, neither is her husband and just look where he end up).
To me Melania is a really passive woman.
She sort of blends in, and the public love…

Recenzija Titove kuharice Anje Drulović: Ena najslabših knjig kar sem jih prebrala // Review of Tito’s Cookbook by Anja Drulović: One of the Worst Books I Read in a While

Res sem hotela, da bi mi bila knjiga všeč. Pa ne zato, ker sem oboževalka Tita, ampak, ker se mi je zdela osnova, ideja knjige izredno dobra. Pa še naslovnica je izgledala super.
Tukaj bi morala poslušati stari pregovor; ne sodi knjige po platnicah.
Knjiga opisuje (oziroma bi morala opisovati) obiske Tita v tujini, pa obiske pri Titu, ter predstavi jedilnike na teh srečanjih, ter njihove recepte. Nastala je na osnovi izvirne in uradne dokumentacije o svečanih kosilih in večerjah. Zveni super, kajne?

Črno bele slike uradnih obiskov so fantastične in vsekakor priskrbijo tisti 'element zgodbe', ki ga druge kuharice pač ne. Ampak, nekatere slike hrane pri receptih so ne samo medle in dolgočasne, ampak včasih tudi repetitivne; na veliko slikah na primer lahko vidimo rožo iz korenčka (verjetno nekakšen kuharjev podpis, ampak še zmeraj…), slika pri receptu 'Bučke po vegetarijansko' je vizualno slaba, izgleda kot, da bi jo posnel otrok s telefono…
