Mathina Calliope goes off her antidepressant and into the woods.

In 2014 my doctor took me off the antidepressant I had credited with making life okay for the previous 16 years; at 41 I was trying to have a baby with my boyfriend, Inti. I didn’t get pregnant, but this story isn’t about my failure to become a mother. Instead it’s about how a break from my meds led, ultimately and circuitously, to another kind of birth; to a different life for myself.

My doctor’s orders seemed rash. Going off antidepressants is fraught, especially since so many people who want to stop taking them have been on them for so long. New guidelines are emerging that acknowledge this danger; a 2019 study in The Lancet Psychiatry recommended patients taper “over a period of months and down to amounts much lower than minimum therapeutic doses.” But my doctor was…

When You Meet a Mathematical Genius

I suggest you to read this article. it’s one of those contents that when I read it, I say to myself if I wanted to write something about the issue, it would be this article.

how not to be wrong

“Athletes don’t quit their sport just because one of their teammates outshines them. And yet I see promising young mathematicians quit every year, even though they love mathematics, because someone in their range of vision was ahead of them.”

[How not to be wrong, Jordan Ellenberg]

I know this is a little bit off the topic (and the style) of this blog but I would like to write this post for kids/students who want to be a future mathematician. In my life, I have met several mathematical geniuses equipped with complete mathematical skill sets, intuition, reasoning, and creativity. Many people may think that geniuses are not willing to work hard but all the geniuses I met before put their whole energy into solving some mathematical problems always. Hence, when I had met them, I had felt that there is NO chance to defeat such kinds of geniuses and had felt…

I Went To Jail Storytime!

such an interesting story. you may also like it. I invite you to read it and I hope you too enjoy it. as I did.


It was June 5th, 2018. I had just turned 25. This day was my aunt’s birthday, so we started partying early in the day at about 3 PM. We started the fun with a “smoke” and a fifth of Hornitos tequila. We drank and talked for about two hours, then my aunt had to leave for plans with her friends. At this point, it was about 5:30 PM and I was buzzed and ready to continue partying. I grab my phone and call my uncle. He invites me over to chill and smoke some hookah. This was music to my inebriated ears. I grab my car keys, grab a bottle of Titos vodka from the store and head over. When I get there, my uncle and his girlfriend are smoking hookah and playing Uno. I grab a seat and join the fun. We do shots, play cards and smoke hookah…
