How the battery on your phone can measure your happiness

There’s no such thing as a thermometer for happiness. There’s not an objective way to measure it. And even further, we won’t always agree on what happiness is. Some people say that they can tell they’re happy because they feel time flies. After a couple of hours, they realise they’ve been having such a good […]

Why the hell did I volunteer twice if I hate it?

Actually, this story started with a lie. My apologies. I’ve volunteered only once. That was last year at the Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
