Nothing Like a Good Dose of Peer Pressure in Your Twenties

“Actually, I already wrote an article on the exactly same topic,” chuckled Margarethe while sipping on wine. It was a Saturday night and we were sitting on her bedroom floor, preparing for a much needed dancing session after the long week.
I had all sorts of feelings inciting me write this post, but hearing that my witty, talented friend already wrote what was most likely to be a  more sophisticated version of the same article I had on my mind simply made me burst out. Given the context and the topic, it was more than ironic.

Dublin: A Pocket Guide for the Clueless and Unprepared

1805-2018-031076136699750361.jpg

It’s been exactly one month now since me and Marie went on a three day trip to Dublin. We left Berlin and its moral hangover after the 1st of May festivities and flied to what felt like an entirely different climate zone.
Let me give you a heads-up: Dublin’s rainy. 
It just so happened that both and Marie had been running around like headless chicken the weeks following up to the trip. Therefore, we had exactly 0 idea about where we were going, what we wanted to see & what would be accurate to expect. I personally had a vague idea of a pretty city with cobblestone streets, flowers and and somehow, sheep (I do realize how that sounds, yes). I don’t know what Marie visualized but she seemed just as messy as me when we finally set foot in the capital of Ireland.

St. Valentines generally leaves me pretty emotionless. It’s sweet when your boyfriends and girlfriends and pets remember, but it most certainly doesn’t make the Earth stop spinning if they don’t . This year, though, I’ve heard quite a few heartbreaking stories and thought about the media pressure and how does it make us all feel even more… misplaced. Even though heartbreak is, in fact, an inseparable part of love, isn’t it? These six albums celebrate heartache and make it even slightly enjoyable, each in a specific way. They also happen to be my personal favorites. Happy St Valentines & I send hugs<3

Follow Me Around Berlin: Winter Edition

 

IMG_5078.jpg

It’s been nearly two weeks since I visited Berlin after – what felt like – ages. I drank a lot of coffee and had a lot of fun with people who have a special place in my heart. It was short and sweet and also very emotional, as so many changes happened since last summer when I moved out. I walked the streets with eyes wide open and my heartbeat going full-speed.
Happiness level: freshly adopted puppy.

Three Bestselling Books & My Thoughts on Them

0803-2018-030620728690168710.jpg

Aged ten, I was a proud bookworm. Nothing and nobody could stop me from reading: I burrowed into heaps of books and didn’t come out until I was seventeen. Since then, a lot has changed. I did a great job of overthinking, over-analyzing and  thoroughly ruining every single book I got my hands on. It’s hard to say whether it served my academic purposes or not. Sure thing is, it didn’t bring much inspiration into my life. When 2018 began, I found myself  on a blank sheet where even the simplest tasks like magazine articles seemed to be too hard to tackle.
