Hungry

Hungry

I have always had a large appetite. As a child, the determining factor of what constituted a good meal was quantity, not quality. I wanted to feel full. However, if my stomach was still growling, I knew the fridge would always be fully stocked with food. This is probably the case for most people. Do you […]

Feeling alone

Feeling alone

Feeling alone is becoming increasingly commonplace in everyday life. According to a recent survey done by the BBC in 2013, London, where we are surrounded by people, is the loneliest place to live.

Are you just a bunch of chemical reactions randomly put […]
