I’ve once again been to Volkspark Rehberge. Instead of the yellow autumn light I encountered at the last visit, the park was now covered by a wintery snowy blanket. People enjoyed a walk in this winter wonderland, went for a jog, let their dogs play happily in the fluffy snow or enjoyed a sledging down that marvellous hill that’s perfect for this activity.
It seems as if the „bad days“ at work have accumulated in the past weeks. In general I enjoy my work but recently there are a few things that really get to me (mostly the way my superior talks to me and how he treats me) and leave me feeling miserable at the end of the day. Once home I sometimes can’t stop thinking about the phone calls I made or the decisions I took. In my head I analyse the entire day over and over again and I wish this would stop and some of my self confidence would return. Because I am good at what I am doing! So in order to distract myself I often end up on my couch directly after work, too tired and exhausted to do anything else than watch some Netflix or browse pinterest and tumblr. Every day I try to fight that urge. And luckily this week I so far succeeded! (except this Monday where I almost feel asleep and was then woken by phone calls and messages of friends and family because this happened here) Yesterday I went to SO36 to sing Shape Notes with friends and later listen to the performances of […]
It’s the same each year: I either have too many ideas for Christmas gifts or I have zero. 2016 the latter is the case. There are a lot of things that inspire me and that I would like to have for myself but none of these items are really gifts for family and friends. So I’ve spent my past three Saturdays with Christmas gift hunting
For the past seven days I tried to publish one blog post each day, a project to finally get this blog going properly, to help me focus on something productive and fun after work. At first I thought I would never make it, wouldn’t find the time after sitting in front of a computer in the office all day. Strangely enough all the worries I had prior to this experiment were totally unfounded.
I love the sea. Water is my element. The endless horizon calms me and so does the sound of the waves crashing onto the shore. I love how the wind tousles my hair and how the spray covers my glasses with tiny drops of salty sea water.
In September I took my last holidays for 2016. The four days I had left for the rest of the year I saved for Christmas and New Year, thinking that I could easily go through three months without a day off (except for the weekends and October 3rd). Bad idea. The days get shorter, sunny days become rarer. And going to work day after day becomes more challenging with every day the sun rises later and sets earlier. I feel tired all of the time. The bit of daylight I see is when I leave the house in the morning to go to work, and of course there are windows in our office that let the light in. However, I’m not sitting next to one and I’m not going outside for my break but stay inside since my workplace is in a very rural area of Berlin (nothing to see out there, nowhere to go). And when I leave work it is dark. Which leaves the weekends as the only two days where most of us can soak up a bit of daylight and hopefully sunshine. I truly hate the autumn and winter months for their darkness, rain and wind. Even […]
For a while now I wanted to get back into blogging on a regular basis – just for me, some friends, whoever wanted to read what I’m writing. On tumblr this has worked pretty well (and hasn’t been a challenge at all) for the past 6 years but it is not the same as a „real“ blog that allows people to comment and me to write long (boring) texts. Over on tumblr I mostly reblog things other people have already posted. So I only click one button and that’s it. With a regular blog I have to think about so many things: what will the blog be about when do I find the time to write what do I write do I want to have a certain theme I always return to? So a while ago this new blog was born and since I started it I realized that I seem to have less time than ever to actually sit down and write something. Although I found a nice theme, have plenty of things to say, I am often too knackered after work to sit down and actually create a new post. Over on instagram, ktinka mentioned that she knows […]
Hello and welcome to this collection of random thoughts and images. This blog is about the things I love most: photography, music, the sea and city trips. And I hope to be able to update this on a regular basis.
