What I’ve Been Up To In 2018 – Mid Term Evaluation!

Time really flies. It's June, which means we're halfway through 2018 (can you believe it???) and a lot has happened! I'd therefore like to use this beautiful time of the year to reflect and evaluate my goals I've set for myself. 2018 was meant to be the time I actively focus on my personal development and I… Continue reading What I’ve Been Up To In 2018 – Mid Term Evaluation!

The Bauty Of Raindrops

I've changed a lot in the past few years, although I've probably always been one of those people you'd describe "live on the bright side of life". Nevertheless, I believe we can train ourselves to see the good. Often it's the little things that can make us happy and feel calm, if we only learnt to appreciate those.… Continue reading The Bauty Of Raindrops

About UK Slang and being everybody’s darlin’ #UK3

It's been a few years since I've had my last English class in school and college, but I remember the teachers have always highlighted that we were taught British English instead of American English in Germany. Back then, I didn't think about it much because to my ears it's never made a massive difference anyway. Now I can tell… Continue reading About UK Slang and being everybody’s darlin’ #UK3

Acro Flow and the fear of being a fraud

Others would've said my music was too loud but I don't believe music can be too loud. I didn't want to hear anything else except for the tones and melody of the song coming through my headphones; didn't want my thoughts to be interrupted by other travellers plucking in the phone or opening a bag of crisps.

Happiness – choice or genetics?

There was this moment where I found myself saying things out loud I already knew I would regret later. Inside, I was aware of the fact that this feeling was created by myself and not from the person opposite me but I couldn't help it. Sometimes I am angry with the whole world where as the only person I am actually angry with is me. I guess it's just too easy to blame others that we forget to look at ourselves first.

If we were having coffee…

If we were having coffee I'd probably want to tell you about many things but actually just babble a lot of nonsense. I'd tell you that I am proud that I stopped wearing all black every day and started to have enough white clothes for a washing load once a week.

We always claim we wouldn't have enough… Continue reading 36 Things To Do Instead Of Watching TV (Low Cost Or Free)

About Airports, hand luggage and ovomaltine

Y’alright? #UK2

See English version below Ich kann nicht glauben, dass es schon ein ganzes Jahr her ist, dass ich von zuhause ausgezogen bin und nun in einem anderen Land lebe; oder erst ein Jahr? So richtig sicher, ob die Zeit nun schnell oder eher langsam vergangen ist, bin ich nicht - irgendwie beides. Worueber ich mir jedoch… Continue reading Y’alright? #UK2
