Staying sane during the shorter days

Ah daylight savings, my forever antagonist, the villain of my winters, the trigger of my seasonal depression. How’s that for some early morning drama? To say that I struggle with the shorter winter days is a bit of an understatement, to give you an idea of the amount of struggle we are talking about: I…

Buying second hand items to make myself feel better about capitalism

This summer we have had to do without one of my favourite things about Munich: the flea markets. Having just moved to a new apartment, I would have loved being able to go furniture shopping somewhere other than Ikea. I did turn to Facebook marketplace, but it just doesn’t have the same charm, does it?…

Currently Reading Vol. 6

Before quarantine started, I stocked up on books the way others were stocking up on toilet paper. I borrowed from friends, visited the local second hand shop… and even when everything was closed and seeing friends wasn’t allowed, here in Munich people would leave their old books at their doorstep and well… I took a…

Nostalgic for Mexico

I don’t know if I mentioned it in here, but on the 29th of February, before the pandemic hit Europe and our lives took a bit of a hit, Fletcher and I travelled to CancĂșn for my birthday, and it was one of my favourite trips ever. We were there during my birthday, and I…
