Loneliness and happiness or: how one can ruin the other

This post is a follow up to Ethics, morality and good or: the story of my life Introduction I’ve been feeling down lately, so I think it’s a good time to write a follow up to one of my previous “personal” post: Ethics, morality and good or: the story of my life Even though this post is mainly based around my own experience, and might looks like it’s just me crying about my own situation, I am making a point at the end that isn’t just about my own experience....

The quest for the perfect registrar: from Gandi to Netim
