how liberty dies...

Είχα υποσχεθεί στον εαυτό μου ότι όσο και αν με τσάτιζαν οι σημερινές εκλογές δεν θα έγραφα τίποτα εδώ στο μπλογκ, είπα ας μην το κάνω και εδώ μακελειό ας κρατήσω αποστασιοποιημένο αυτόν τον χώρο από τέτοιες συζητήσεις.

Αλλά αλήθεια δεν άντεξα, ένα χειροκρότημα λοιπόν μιας και σήμερα καταφέραμε να σκοτώσουμε  την δημοκρατία μας. Και μπράβο σας, όχι μπράβο σας που δεν ανοίξατε βιβλία ιστορίας ποτέ στην ζωή σας, ταινίες όμως δεν βλέπατε;

Well today, we had our national elections here in Greece. The truth is that I had promised to myself that no matter what, I would not write about it here. Let's say that I would like to keep this place detached from political issues.

However, I couldn't help it and I would like to thank all the citizens of this country in succeeding killing our democracy. And I am here to ask all of you, this: You didn't read history books, well done! Didn't you see movies too?

Déspina Kortesidou

Déspina Kortesidou was born with the April flowers sometime in the '90s in the sunny peninsula of Greece. She is a graduating master student of neuroscience & metabolism, and a born adventurer.

(3rd person statements sound so official, love it)

She founded In Whirl of Inspiration, back in 2011 when she was (just) a biology student, in the island of Crete. In Whirl of Inspiration started as a creative and writing outlet for when studying molecules, became too monotonous. Recently, she started writing a children book and a not-so-children's book about the civil war in Greece. She has a soft spot for cheese, elder people, and (her own) jokes, but can't tell any as she ruins them by laughing too early. She enjoys sharing advice for eating healthier, or inspiring people to cover themshelves with plants, color and confetti.

Feel free to email her at, or find her on Instagram and Twitter. (breaking the 3rd person narration to thank you properly)

Thank you so much for reading!
