Well, I haven’t text with Corey much, despite the initial enthusiasm. Our schedules are less compatible and although I tried to approached him, I do not run after anyone.

Fortunately, I turn the page pretty fast and I already had sex with another guy, and just one because, truly… If I had a dime for every single time boys ask me to fuck, I’d be a millionaire.

So, saw my neighbour last night because I’m always more comfortable with cheats familiar faces than total strangers. As usual, he was great, and just after he was gone, I got a message from Mike (another straight curious). Sadly, I was no longer in the mood. 

But I might see him on Thursday.

In short, you don’t always have what you want. But what you can!

In any case, Poppy Day is a Holiday to salute all our heroes. Those who survived and those who went away and did not come home.

And here’s the head of the state, The Queen (of UK, Canada & the Commonwealth,) in the ceremony yesterday in London:

To the men and women in uniform, to those who gave their lives across the world for freedom and peace, and to those who still fighting…

THANK YOU!

Image result for silverjow artist Ox chineseI am not superstitious and I don’t believe in mainstream astrology, however, the Chinese zodiac has always impressed me by its accuracy when it comes to describe and match the signs.

I’ve been with many men in my life, but all my longest relationships (of years) has always been with the two signs the Chinese zodiac associate me with: The Rooster and the Ox.

Last night I met (had sex) with a guy I’ve been chatting the whole week. He’s 22, skinny, good looking, clever, dominant… But little did I know he was actually smart, had a sarcastic sense of humour, and was very interesting.

This guy had something different, I was drawn by him in a very unusual way… The way I felt when I met my boyfriends.

At some point during the night he mentioned astrology and randomly I asked if he knew what animal he was in the Chinese one. And he told me he was an Ox, I understood all ’cause I am a Snake

It was a feeling good type of scenario ’cause the attraction was mutual and beyond sex.. Even if we ended up in my bed. 

Once done we exchanged numbers, showing interest to meet again.

I rarely get impressed by guys, but Corey was a nice surprise.

If you were born in the Eastern block of Europe, you sure as hell saw a lot of Soviet monuments around. Soldiers, proudly leaning in forward in anticipation for a head-on fight with their guns in hands, fellow comrades standing in all their imposing glory, huge heads of Lenin… You’ve seen them all.

While for the older generation, it can really evoke positive sentiments, even memories of the glorious Soviet army maybe, for the young ones these monuments remind them of their oppressors.

This is the case in Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria, where a huge monument of Soviet soldiers, built back in 1954, is vandalised over and over again in the most creative ways.

The painting job was done by a group of anonymous artists who call themselves Destructive Creation. The daunting military figures were turned into much friendlier subjects like Superman, Ronald McDonald, Santa Claus, and Wonder Woman. A slogan which translates into English as “In pace with time” was scribbled beneath them.

The pink colour is a reference to the painting of The Monument to Soviet Tank Crews in Prague by David Černý in 1991, while the slogan beneath the figures says “Bulgaria apologises.”

In 2012, three previously arrested members of the Russian feminist protest punk rock band Pussy Riot were convicted by a Russian court and sentenced to two years’ imprisonment each. This was widely criticized outside Russia and on the same day of the conviction, colorful knit balaclavas (trademark of Pussy Riot members) were put on the heads of figures of the monument.

In February 2014, the monument was painted once again and this time it honoured Ukraine that was (and still is) a victim of Russia’s aggression. One of the soldiers and the flag above was painted in the national colours of Ukraine and the phrase “Glory to Ukraine” was written in Ukrainian on the monument. An obscene reference to Vladimir Putin was also made, by calling him “Kaputin.” The vandalism was an act of support of the 2014 Ukrainian Revolution.

Now… I think there’s a weird love-hate relationship here between Bulgaria and Russia since forever! Because let’s not forget that the Russian Empire also liberated Bulgaria from the Ottoman.

And here, although these Soviet era monuments remind everyone the darkest times in history, this particular monument is not about Lenin, Stalin, the USSR, or communism.

This is a monument honouring the soldiers who died fighting Nazis!

In short, I’m all about art, fun and justice. But also, I’m all about respect to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

White supremacist ideology has found a home in both major political parties in the United States at different times in the country’s history. But it has not always been openly acknowledged, receding into coded language and whispers when out of political favour.

 
In the decades after Reconstruction and after World War I, however, politicians shouted racist, xenophobic speeches through bullhorns, inciting thousands of lynchings across the country.

One incredibly bloody mass killing, the so-called Tulsa “Race Riot” of 1921, actually a massacre and decimation of a thriving business district, has come back into public consciousness after a fictionalised depiction on HBO’s Watchmen series.

Twelve years earlier, another definitive event took place in Wilmington, North Carolina. If mentioned at all, it’s been glossed over quickly in textbooks and the town’s historical memory, but the Wilmington Massacre is part of a history of racial terrorism many celebrated openly, then sought to suppress, deny, and ignore when it became embarrassing.

Four years ago, between mixed feelings, my last longest relationship ended. And when he left, he also vanished from Earth. Over the last four year, I’ve never heard from him or spotted him in the city, unlike many of my other exes…

Joseph disappeared.

Before our ending he was planning a trip to Australia, so I figured he also moved over there since he left no trace. 

For a while I looked for him, hoping to get a chance, and even if I had many relationships after, his memory never faded away.

Yesterday checking my messages on the hookup app, I saw his picture amongst the guys near my area…  Obviously I had all sort of flashbacks, and despite all that happened between us, it made me happy seen him well and looking pretty much the same. 

For a second I thought to send him a message, but saying what? I miss you? I reflected. What if he gets upset or just ignored me? He already made me feel as if I didn’t exist, and I’d rather not take another hit.

All these years I just wondered if he was fine, and I finally got my answer.

If could go back in time and do things differently I would, but I can’t. I loved Joseph a lot and gave him what I could. But in those days I was also another version of myself.

In the end, instead of saying something, I just blocked him because I’m not proud of who I am, and I don’t want him to see what I’ve become.

I lost him four years ago, and with him, I lost myself too.

I miss when Tumbrl was fun…

Have you ever found a writer who thinks just like you? Not fully, but in part. I’m damaged deep inside but I’m chill, and they’re not. 

Do you like your name? is there another name you think would fit you better? I have a German name and I HATE it! Ikki or Eros are names I can associate my personality and face with.

Do you identify yourself by the things you do? No, but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.

Are you religious/spiritual? Spiritual

Do you care about your ethnicity? I do because South Americans are a mix of randomness.

Are you an artist? Mostly when depressed.

Do you have a creed? Hedonism.

Dog person or cat person? DOG!

If someone wanted to really understand you, what would they read, watch, and listen to?  Read this, watch this and listen to this.

 Inside or outdoors? Indoors more often.

Are you a musician? No.

If you’d grown up in a different environment, you’d have turned out the same? No.

Would you say your blog is a fair representation of the “real you”? Mostly.

Do you love easily? ONLY the right people.

List the top three things you spend the most time doing, in order. Working, writing, fucking.

Have you ever felt like you had a “mind-meld” with someone? Yes. I was mentally connected with PatrickA (one of my exes). Often we had the same idea in mind. Maybe the fact that he studied neurology and my fascination for psychology had to do with it. It was almost telepathic.

Do you feel like your outside appearance is a fair representation of the “real you”? To my eyes yes because I’m healthy and I take care of myself. BUT people always judge me by the way I look. See, looking “fine” makes you automatically stupid and superficial. And while they minimise my intellect by my appearance, it also shows me how low their IQ is.

On a scale from 1 to 10, how hard is it for someone to get under your skin? 7!
