Animal Farm by George Orwell

This is a must read to understand the Russian Revolution, communisme and how it all affects the people living in it.

Even though this novel is not full of literary chef d’oeuvre phrases, it’s still an amazing read, because the main idea remains in the metaphors and the raw portrait of Stalin, portrayed by a pig – Napoleon. It’s so obvious that Napoleon is the prototype of Stalin, how he acts, changes rules for his gain and commands the farm, that it’s no surprise this novel was banned in Soviet Union.

The revolution is never for the people, but for the main figures. In this novel it shows very well how people gets high hopes for change, but in most cases, the Commander always has his own “constitution”, not people’s.

“All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.” It pretty much sums up communist Soviet Union.

We Need To Talk About OCD

Hello. I have OCD. I am a law student, so the constant stress I am under doesn’t make it easier. Sometimes I think, is OCD all I am?

So what is OCD? If you google it, you will find this: Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a mental disorder in which people have unwanted and repeated thoughts, feelings, ideas, sensations (obsessions), and behaviors that drive them to do something over and over (compulsions). Often the person carries out the behaviors to get rid of the obsessive thoughts. It pretty much sums it up.

But how is living with OCD? Living with this mental illness is like having someone else in your brain who only keeps telling and reminding you the bad stuff and warns you that, if you won’t do some ritual (even if it’s nonsense, like tapping something twice), something very bad will happen. Unfortunately, for me at least, this “very bad thing” doesn’t threaten only me, but also my loved ones. And that’s the hardest and most horrible part. Like, imagine, all the time, if I will do something “not the right way” (for my OCD), I am crazy afraid that I’m hurting my loved ones.

OCD affects my every move. It affects my social and study life. As a law student, I need to work pretty much all day, but my compulsions make me loose so much time, it’s unbearable. It makes it so hard to take notes on lectures, I am twitching, rewriting words for no reason etc.

How should you act with someone with OCD? First of all, act normal, because we are normal. Second of all, please show us love and make a comfortable environment. If your kid or your loved one has OCD, just love them and show them that you care, don’t push them, don’t fight with them about it, cause, trust me, we want the most to get rid of this mental illness.

My fellow OCDers, I know how hard it is, I know how some days are much worse and others are a little bearable, but please, don’t give up, I believe that with our string will and determination, we can become free again. I believe in you and in me too, just keep fighting. And I want to tell you, whatever happens, it’s not your fault!

And no you are not all OCD, you are much more with amazing personality and ambitions. Your illness doesn’t define you. Your are much more.

Book Review: The Handmaid’s Tale

Here’s my french copy of The Handmaid’s Tale.

So i read this book a week ago and i still can’t snap out of its impressions.

Before talking about the plot, let’s all just appreciate the amazing, rich, full and wonderful writing of Margaret Atwood. The words she uses, the way she describes details, how she makes from ordinary extraordinary. It’s was really a pleasure reading a book with such a great lexique.

About the plot, it’s a speculative fiction (Which doesn’t exist now but might happen). It’s about a near-future America where women’s only use is to bear children (mostly, cause there are other functions like Marthas, Wives etc.), but the point is, women have no liberty, they are depending to men and a horrible regimen.

The book delivers a frightening look at discrimination. Any kind of discrimination dehumanizes a person, but it must be said how Offred (main character) still tries to be a woman, at it’s original meaning. When a person becomes an object, we can’t speak about the free will, we speak about a slavery, which is the worst kind of discrimination.

The book is a real 5/5 stars, it will leave you with raw emotions and fear, but even though the author talks about her book as a speculative fiction, i still want to believe that no matter how conservative the government will be (in any country), this kind of future is impossible in today’s society, because, in 21st century, human rights are the priority, every person is equal (thank God), and i think we evolved enough not to go back into discriminatory, offensive, cruel world we left behind. I really hope so.

I think this book is a must read not only for women, but men too. So if you want to watch the TV show (i know, it’s tempting), i recommend reading a book first. I just started the TV show snd i must say it’s a really good work.
