Why follow me

      Hello my name is Kostas Romeos, born in Chattanooga Tennessee, raised in Athens Greece, and currently living in Mishawaka, Indiana. I will be talking allot about my cultural transitions and life experiences later on. No, that is not my attempt to persuade you to follow my blog.
      We live in an era of constant change. The media is bombarding us with information which -outside the reach our comprehension many times- manages to shape the way we live. Sometimes it's good to take a step back and view life and its' mysteries from the outside, without being "brainwashed" by the media and people spreading their opinions. You must think that I am some sort of "media" hater. Nah, that's not the case at all. As a matter of fact I'm working on my BA degree in Communications with a Media concentration. It's very important to be able to analyze the information given to you before you allow it to affect your life. So, let's say that's what I'll be trying to do over here. I've always considered myself a friend of wisdom even though I don't always follow her counsel, so philosophy will definitely be present in many of the issues i will discuss. Film has also consumed a great portion of my life so I'll be talking about a couple motion pictures as well. Growing up in a protestant home, while having extremely different beliefs than everybody around me has always been a challenge in my life, therefore religion will be amongst the hottest topics debated. I am open to disagreements, questions and comments of any sort and even grammar and punctuation (did i spell that right?) corrections as English is not my first language. I really want to encourage those who are crazy enough to follow my posts to think about the issues. Even if what you read makes you mad, just that will be counted as success in my book!
    We live in a world of darkness, there is no doubt about that. Many times it seems that even a tiny sense of happiness is overthrown by the sadness and pain surrounding our every day struggles. So, let's take a step back and take a better look at the world around us. Who knows? We might find a light bright enough to give us hope for the future.
