I’d like to buy you a coffee…

I’m on a mission to speak to as many people as possible to discover what lies at the heart of being human. Let’s spend an hour in conversation about your experience of what it’s like to be you.

Here are some of the humans I've spoken to so far...

101 – I Rarely Made Decisions For Myself – Isaac

“I got married in 2012 but we divorced last year. I’ve always been very independent, but the first months after my divorce were really tough. Even if you’re independent, there are so many things you used to do together. For example, when you’re watching a film…

100 – I Can’t Find A Rational Answer When It comes To Purpose – Sebastian

“If I don’t see the rationality behind a decision, I’m kinda lost. I feel bad about doing it unless I can see its rational sense. I think love has to be both rational and irrational for me. Last time, I wrote a list of plusses and minuses

099 – I Think Creativity Was Genetic For Me – Lara

"I’m trying to figure out my life. I’m transitioning from being a student to an adult, and sometimes it’s not such a nice transition. The hardest part is simply that I'm thinking all the time. Or maybe I’m overthinking it and worrying too much. I think about what will...

098 – I’m Afraid Of What Will Happen Next – Mikela

"The Netherlands kinda broadened my horizons. It was a completely different world. It’s a very liberal country, which makes it completely different from here in Slovenia. For one year, everything was fine, but then this huge crisis started out of nowhere. I went to...

097 – I’m Afraid I’ll Always Feel Like I’m Pretending – Nika

"If I don’t like the ending of a book I sometimes rewrite the last two chapters myself to make it how I would have liked it to finish. And sometimes I just overhear a conversation on a bus and it sparks something in me and I start writing. I started speaking English...

096 – I’m Just A Teenager Trying To Find Her Place In The World – Neža

“I actually have a sort of autism called Asperger syndrome. I remember reading somewhere that people with Asperger’s are supposed to be introverts and want to close themselves away but I decided I didn’t want to be like that.

095 – Learning To Be Secure With Myself – Gosia

The last six months I’ve been experiencing this typical mid-twenties crisis. You know, once you’ve graduated and then you’re like “wtf do I do now?” I was in a nine year relationship, we had two cats, and we were looking to buy an apartment. Yet I was unhappy. I was...

094 – I Only Use My Night-Vision – Nina

When I was nineteen I was going through Wikipedia and I found a diagnosis for my eye condition, achromatopsia. It was something I was born with but I had really peculiar symptoms and no doctor could ever find a diagnosis.

093 – I’m Not So Young Anymore – Miha

Life’s quite a mess right now. I’m a father of ten children and I recently lost my job. I worked for twenty years in a translation agency, but recently twenty of us left the company. I have a huge family which means a lot of responsibility. I often think about it like...

092 – Why Would I Pretend To Be Somebody Else? – Nikolay

The older you get, the less you care about what people think. I think this is partly because of work. When we get older, we have to work, right? And when we work, our time also becomes a lot more valuable. We realise how important it is and to sit there for 3 hours...

Want to grab a coffee with me?

Currently I’m in Ljubljana, but if you’re not close by we can have ‘virtual coffee’ instead.
