I’ve Studied Abroad 3 Times & I’ve Learned Nothing

Provided by ellieejay My first international class in Guatemala, followed by a semester in London, then a semester in Granada… and what do I have to say for myself? I’ve learned nothing. Contrary to popular belief and folktales told by previous students who have studied internationally, living abroad for 5 months does not make you... Continue Reading →

A Ghost-y Story

Today I’m going to share a story about how my own brain f*cked me hard, together with a pair of wet jeans (I promise it’s different than anything you can imagine!) Many many years ago when I was just a young boy (I think I was about 13 years old), my family and I had... Continue Reading →

The Growth

Pain, truth, thoughts, emotions and everything our fragile bodies carry has a place in this world. Any demon can be defeated with the proper company and with the proper weapons and that’s why this blog exists. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and feelings with us. Thank you for spending (or investing) some of your... Continue Reading →

The World-Ruler

*Attention! This is going to be a brutal post!* From all the things we have in this world, there is one that rules them all (and no, it’s not the one ring). There is something that has the ability to control anything and anyone, if leveraged correctly. People tend to do anything for this, regardless... Continue Reading →

Thoughts Manager

Today’s a pretty rough day because I barely slept last night. And it’s not like I did anything… I only had a constant thought-flow with things that could go bad in my life (that and the fact that one of my cats made strange noises all night long). The thoughts were so bad that I... Continue Reading →

Mind vs Reality

Don’t worry, that “vs” is just for show. It’s not a battle, but there are differences, especially if we think about what “reality” really means. Have you ever searched for what Wikipedia says about reality? Here it is: “Reality is the sum or aggregate of all that is real or existent, as opposed to that which... Continue Reading →

Life Assess

When you think about your life, what thoughts come to you? What about when you think about life in general? What’s the difference between those two perspectives? I’m now wondering if the feelings I have when I consider the worst parts of my life are the same with other people’s feelings. There are people on... Continue Reading →

Unstructured Writing

I always thought a piece of written content must be structured in such a way that it looks nice and that has a logical form from top to bottom. But does that apply to all types of writings? Lately, I changed my mind and I think it doesn’t. Structured writing is very useful when you... Continue Reading →

The Art of Living

It’s been a looong time since I wrote something and I’m not even sure I know how to do it. Life is so unpredictable that if you try to understand it, your mind might explode. Actually, this is what happened to me. One year ago, I thought that all I can do is write for... Continue Reading →

Philosophy: an art of living

Provided by Cleveland Philosophic Advisor As this is my first guest post for Pointless Overthinking, it seemed appropriate to talk about philosophy as a way of living. It’s such an interesting idea, and although it differs from how one (usually) hears philosophy discussed today, I’ve noticed the idea (1) in the ancient period of Western... Continue Reading →

Re-connecting with My Time

As you may have noticed, it’s been a while since I posted something. It seems that time works against me and instead of helping me achieve things, it keeps me away from doing what I love. Because of this, I decided to re-connect with my time so we both are again on the same page.... Continue Reading →

Holding a grudge? – Reblog

“When you stay upset on someone, you give your emotional control to that person every time you think about her. You’re allowing that person to control your emotions from a distance. By not forgiving her, you’re allowing that person to control your emotional life as if she would be with you in that moment and... Continue Reading →

The “curse” of being wrong

This is something most people want to avoid. This is basically why so many awesome ideas die. People cannot stand the fact they might be wrong. They just don’t, especially when they strongly believe in a certain idea. This is related to the fact that an idea or an opinion is strongly connected to the... Continue Reading →

I need to vs I have to – Reblog

We do things every day. Some of them we enjoy doing, others to do because we have to and some we do because we need to. There is this thing I’ve noticed: whenever we have to do things, we sometimes feel worse compared to the things we need to do. Why is this happening? I believe this happens because...
