So what I do on my YouTube channel isn’t really to be taken seriously, but I do follow people who do take their hobbies or jobs very seriously as content creators. Mainly talking about World of Warcraft videos here. There was this channel I discovered that portrayed World of Warcraft through a lot of data… Continue reading Death – Time Check
Sometimes, we forget what it means to be alive. Sometimes, we’re so focused on our lives that we forget our own fragility. This weekend, a great friend of mine had his mother taken away from him. In no more than a couple of months, she was diagnosed with cancer, and the situation did not get… Continue reading Death – A Mother’s Farewell
It was past midday of Saturday the 3rd of December, when my mother abruptly opened the door of my room and without hesitation or euphemisms, she told me that my great uncle Claudio had passed away that morning. A heart attack or lung failure had sent him off this world. If you’re reading this, surely you… Continue reading Death – Without concern
And here it came. September 1st, supposed to be the most calm month of the summer to work as a Lifeguard at the beach. The sea was altered from what it was on the day before. Waves crumbled on themselves and clashed against the rocks in the distance, allowing for small lakes to be relatively… Continue reading A Lifeguard’s Saga/Death – Ep.7 – The Sea’s Embrace
A couple of days ago I finally got the courage that was lacking in my heart some time ago when I added the last entry of this category. There was a dense mist along the shoreline and you couldn’t see more than a hundred meters in any direction. I was starting to set up the… Continue reading A Lifeguard’s Saga – Ep.5 – Redemption
This entry has two categories. First because it started as a Lifeguard’s Saga long before I even knew it would exist. In 2013 or 2014, I don’t remember if it was two years in a row or just 2014 alone, I met a old couple around their 80’s who came to the beach almost every… Continue reading A Lifeguard’s Saga – Ep.4 – Time passes by.
A couple of days ago, when on my daily routine to check the social media, I saw an entry of an old friend, a rather emotional post about his grandmother who had passed away due to an illness. The woman in question usually came by the pub where I worked, when her health allowed her… Continue reading Death – The frail old lady
I believe this is the first time that I’ll speak about death without a direct event attached to it, since the event comes from the possibility imposed from my own mind instead. Have you ever been in bed, rolling left and right while trying to get to the perfect position to sleep but you really… Continue reading Death – A thought before sleeping
It was 16:01. The wind blows consistently outside. Branches and leaves of trees dance at the speed imposed by the wind itself, while dark grey clouds moved north, as it is typical in a day of rain. My cell phone rang and I promptly answered it. I already knew what it was about, I only… Continue reading Death – A life well lived.
It was after noon, I already had my belly full from lunch and I think I was playing Witcher 3 on my computer when my father entered the room and simply announced that a friend of his had died. For a second of interval to digest it, I pictured each one of his friends that… Continue reading Death – Secrecy
