A Conversation with My Brothers (German)

Der “Geschwister-Chat” ist meine Lieblings-WhatsApp-Gruppe: Bruderherz: Habt ihr ne Idee für Mama zu Weihnachten? Bruderherz: [erzählt von einem Buch, das J. vorgeschlagen hat] davon den ersten Band zu schenken mit der Aussicht auf die restlichen, wenns ihr gefällt. Isa: UUUH das will ich ja auch haben. finde ich ne gute idee, dann leih ich mir […]

Top 5 Bullet Journal Spreads in 2017

2017 was my first complete year of bullet journaling. It all started in August 2016, when my friend Michelle jumped on the bandwagon, and I seem to have a need to follow her into all creative pursuits (including nail art and adult colouring books). Those few months in 2016, I tried a lot of different […]

Goodbye, 2017!

This dumpster fire of a year is finally over. When I dubbed 2017 the “Year of New Beginnings”, I had a lot of changes planned, some of which I implemented and others which I didn’t get around to. So now, on the last day of the year, I am yet again sitting here, wishing I’d […]


I’m bringing the How-Much-Do-We-Have-in-Common Bingo to my blog–albeit a safe-for-work version of it. Because let’s be real: I will probably never write a proper intro post again. Instructions: Save image to harddrive, paint over/around/across things we have in common (the free space in the middle is for everyone), save image, upload image, comment here with […]

13 Facts About Me

There was a get-to-know-me meme going around twitter a couple of nights ago, where for every like / favourite, you’d tweet a random fact about yourself, and I thought I’d post mine here as well, in lieu of a proper introductory post: #1 These days, I get sorted into Hufflepuff and Ravenclaw pretty much equally, […]

Another Night Lost

After having spent all day cleaning the bathroom top to bottom, I was knackered yesterday and decided to have an early night. That’s how I found myself in bed at quarter past ten, still wide awake. I figured it wasn’t an issue, what with it still being slightly light outside. I settled in to check […]

How I Became the Person I Am Today

Over the last few years, I’ve written countless versions of this post in my head, but whenever I tried to put them onto paper, I’ve failed. Nothing seemed capable of expressing what I meant to say, and I will be the first to admit that that was enough to scare me away from trying harder […]

Last Night ― A Summary

10 pm: Not tired at all. 11 pm: Still not tired, decide to watch an old favourite film (Twister). 12 am: Realise film is too exciting to encourage sleep. 1 am: Bed. Read for half an hour because still not tired. 2 am: Lie awake. Get up to pee. Lie awake some more. 3 am: […]

Nine Days In

One of my “resolutions” for 2017, as it were, was to blog more. Now we’re nine days into the year, and it’s taken me until now to even start typing up a post. One reason for the slow start is that I’ve been having some trouble thinking in English lately. It’s an odd feeling if […]

So, 2017…

I’ve already written up my year in retrospect, eight pages of it in my bullet journal, but most of that is too personal to put it up online. And since I don’t really do resolutions, I can’t list those here, either. But I do have a to-do list of sorts, stuff I know I need […]
