The Power of Encouragement

🇩🇪 One of my favourite Saturday morning activities is a stroll over the farmer’s market right around the corner – the smell, the noise, the bustling about. One thing in particular caught my eye last week. A young man of about 10 years knealing in a corner, strumming his tiny guitar, singing a few songs…

Change of course.

🇩🇪 Events rarely occur as planned. I’d say we all know a thing or two about that. Right now things are crazy in my life: plans are frustrated, made, rejected and brought up again. The hardest part about planning, however, is letting go of a long-held plan. This is where I come very close to…

The Grand Tour

🇩🇪 There are several reasons that made me ponder about my year abroad more than usual; I gave advice, spoke to friends I met during that time and wallowed in memories. Every time I indulge in my adventures I become grateful – grateful to myself, that I dared this experience. The idea of the Grand…

Chocolate plait

🇩🇪 I always roam the web for new recipes and I stumbled across a video about a pastry, that is easy and quick to make and also needs only few ingredients. Naturally, I tested the whole thing for you ;) Ingredients: 1 pack of flaky dough (as for croissants) 1-2 chocolate bars 1 eggs 1…

It is about humans, not facts

🇩🇪 My dears, I am knee deep into my finals which is why you don’t hear much from me. But as of late, I’ve been asked repeatedly what these „humanities“ are that I am studying. Well, instead of memorizing historical facts as we did in school we study the people involved, we try to figure…

Tortilla de patatas – Spanish cooking

🇩🇪 I haven’t given you a new recipe for quite some time so I got my pans out and made a Spanish tortilla just for you – easy, rustical and yummy. Ingredients: 4 potatoes, slightly less than a pound 4 eggs 1 onion a lot of olive oil Peel and thinly slice the potatoes, place…

Break free, take a deep breath and restart

🇩🇪 The end of this semester is coming closer and more and more often I find myself shutting myself up to meet my tasks and workload for university. That’s okay, but dangerous. Each semester I have to force myself not to throw my phone out of the open window and be like „See you all…

Soul striptease

I know, I know. I’ve been slacking off. But muse is a fickle beast, that sometimes refuses to be tamed – or in my case, she didn’t want to divide her attention on two projects. You can’t ride on two horses with one ass. So, what was I upt o in my absence? I knuckled…

In my sister’s shoes

I love travelling and I already lived abroad for several months on two occasions. Saying goodbye wasn’t too hard on me. Obviously, because for me it meant the beginning of a new adventure; new country, new culture, new people. Now has come the time and for the first time I am among the people who…

About consciously doing nothing

What did you today? Nothing. What’s up? Are you okay? It’s nothing. There’s nothing you can do about it. None of these utterances are true. No one does nothing. Ever. Our heart is beating constantly, we breathe, we think, we live. There are a thousand things happening inside of us and around us, even if…
