A day for learning

1 year ago, for day 33 by Ivette Yanez Soria 💎

Today I got up at about 6.30, travelled to my hometown (three hours away by bus) and took taxi directly into this beautiful yoga studio where I would be taking a course on the Cerebral Intestine and how to cope with stress: I was a little skeptical, but my friend...

After the podcast. Short story.

1 year ago, for day 32 by Ivette Yanez Soria 💎

The podcast finished and the silence, magnified by her high-tech black headphones, woke her up. Hear head, which had been moving like a unattended soccer balloon, lifted up as her body straightened in the double seat. The old women sitting next to her was gone. She could only see the...

Infidelity according to Esther Perel

1 year ago, for day 31 by Ivette Yanez Soria 💎

My favorite podcast, Lit up, is finally back after a year off the air. I was listening to one of the new episodes, finished and it jumped to an old one that I had heard before. I quickly remember it was a good one that had left me thinking and...

Stopping time. Short story.

1 year ago, for day 30 by Ivette Yanez Soria 💎

I woke up and I could stop time. How did I realized? Well, this morning, every time my alarm clock went off -and I wish I didn't have to get up and time would stop-, It did. I would turn the alarm off, hit the snooze button, close my eyes...

Gracias, por favor y perdón. Short story.

1 year ago, for day 29 by Ivette Yanez Soria 💎

"Siempre di gracias y por favor". Era la frase preferida de mi abuela, o al menos la que más de decía, por encima de las palabras de afecto, las cuales tampoco faltaban. Esa mujer era mi todo. Me hacía chocolate caliente cuando se quedaba a cuidarme por las noches y...


1 year ago, for day 28 by Ivette Yanez Soria 💎

They all seem nice as they welcome you in. The space is usually spotless. So clean that it makes you a bit uncomfortable, especially because your mouth is about to show it’s messy teeth... but that’s nothing. “Tom is it?” Well, sorteo of, but you nod in comfirmation. “Open your...

Sunday funday: a lookback

1 year ago, for day 27 by Ivette Yanez Soria 💎

I decided on Sundays I will try to adhere to the same idea, which is to state the positive things I did and I'm proud about (eg. exercise, finish a project, cook all my meals) as well as the things I am grateful about for. So, here it goes: 1....

Mandarine addiction. Short story.

1 year ago, for day 26 by Ivette Yanez Soria 💎

All he wanted were mandarines. Perfectly orange, slightly oval, rape mandarines. Of curse, during the off-season of the year, hard flavourless ones would do. He remember when he had his first one, a rainy cold night just after he had moved in into this eighty's apartment with too fake wood...

Alaska, perdón. Short story (p.2)

1 year ago, for day 25 by Ivette Yanez Soria 💎

Dejando que otros decidan qué quiero. Esponjado, chiquito y completamente blanco, así era Alaska cuando llegó y cuando se fue. La mejor amiga de mi madre lo había traía hasta la puerta, segura de que un lindo cachorro sería un excelente regalo de bienvenida a nuestra nueva casa. Sin...

Querer ser. Short story (p.1)

1 year ago, for day 24 by Ivette Yanez Soria 💎

Querer es complicado. No puedo recordar si su voz era la misma que oigo cuando la pienso despierta, pero hablaba. Viéndola yo desde una esquina de mi cuarto de la infancia y afuera hacia el pasillo de paredes amarilladas gargoledas, ella tenía la esperanza de arreglar su matrimonio. Al...
