Why I love where I’m from

Am I alone in saying that in my teenage years I was obsessed and utterly in love with any other city than my own? In my case this city was London. I suppose it was more or less because I’ve always loved the English language, specifically British English, to the extent that I now study…

I was there.

I was there. On Saturday afternoon on the 13th of January, according to the organizers around 70,000 people joined the so far biggest protest against the conservative and far-right government in Austria. Organisers called this protest the “New Year Reception”. I was there, too. I participated because I wanted to take a stand against right-wing populism, racism,…

Autumn and winter wrap-up: What I loved doing in 2017

I can be a lazy person sometimes. I guess you could maybe also call it introverted. I prefer to stay in, watch TV, talk to family,  read and listen to music. I tend to tense up whenever I go out with people that I do like, but who I feel like they don’t really know…

My favourite music moments of 2017.

Hello everyone! Since the online world has been publishing personal year reviews or new year resolutions and goals a lot recently, I tried as well. Maybe I’m not experienced enough yet though to come up with creative and interesting ways of reviewing a year because my attempt hasn’t really resulted in any kind of post…

A Swiftie’s complex relationship with.. well, Taylor Swift.

Before you stop reading this post thinking I will be hating on Taylor Swift, bear in mind that this post was written by a Swiftie – you could also say a more ‘objective’ Swiftie. And as expected, this woman did not disappoint me with her album. On the contrary, she surprised me, shocked me, made me cry…

and I could see for miles, miles, miles.

Imagine walking up a hill. It’s exhausting and you’re focused on making it to the top as quickly as possible so that you can finally relax and enjoy the view – after all this is why you decided to do that hike for in the first place. Now imagine stopping in the middle of your…

My October favourites

October is coming to an end soon and because of that I want to share my monthly favourites with you. Things I liked, things I discovered and songs I have been listening to a lot. Der Oktober nähert sich dem Ende zu und deshalb möchte ich heute mit euch meine Monatslieblinge teilen. Dinge, die ich…

“WHERE IS THE LOVE?”

‘But if you only have love for your own race Then you only leave space to discriminate And to discriminate only generates hate And when you hate then you’re bound to get irate’ Recently I had a discussion about the One Love Concert in Manchester. I know the concert took place back in May already,…

a letter to my younger self.

Dear 15-year-old me, you won’t believe what I’m about to tell you. You know how you always wanted to become a teacher? Or how you hated being so shit at maths, sometimes thinking you were stupid? Or how everyone is telling you how shy and quiet you are? Well, guess what: You’re now 22, at…

October playlist.

“Autumn, the year’s last, loveliest smile.”  I love listening to music. Then again, who doesn’t in this century? Back then, when I was around 12 years old or so, I used to add “listening to music” to my list of hobbies. I feel like it was something not everyone was doing as much because, honestly,…
