    The 2018 Billboard Music Awards have just finished and everyone is still talking about their favorite artists going on stage, receiving awards and performing. But who were people most excited to see perform? The Korean band BTS was probably the most anticipated act from the whole lineup. This was their comeback on the American-based show, therefore

    When it comes to asking people what they think of upon hearing the word “Japan,” surely most of them would include one of the following: technology; sushi; Tokyo, the world’s largest urban area; Haruki Murakami; anime, with Studio Ghibli as the most famous Japanese animation film studio; cherry blossoms and how everyone is waiting for

    ’’Soon her eye fell on a little glass box that was lying under the table: she opened it, and found in it a very small cake, on which the words “EAT ME” were beautifully marked in currants. “Well, I’ll eat it,” said Alice, “and if it makes me grow larger, I can reach the key;

    I wrote this poem as quick as one breathes. Having lived in Spain for a few months, I realized I am always searching, unconsciously, for someone with whom I can go back home at night. My parents always tell me to text them once I am in my room, no matter the hour. I know

    Before I loved you, I was a wanderer, I was dressed in light green and empty from within; now my soul has the shape of a violin, and it sings of you, day and night… It shines so bright that sometimes I fear its light may tear open my thin skin and leave a mess

    There comes a time in your life when you should ask yourself or others do it for you: “What do I wish for? What have I done until now? Good things, bad things? What do I regret? What I wish would have happened, and what I wish would have not happened?” I am 20-years-old now

    I often wonder, why do we, as people, regret someone, something, when they are no longer a part of our lives? Why do we feel so intensely any loss, any inch of soil lost, any half a smile which fades in the sunset when, selfishly, we want it to last another second, another minute, another

    This is an apology letter to myself, to her, to everyone who has ever felt this way. It may seem to arrive a bit late, but the truth is, it’s never too late to learn to care for yourself. My dear, you care for everyone else, but never for you. You go days without eating
