A number of reasons I’ve been less depressed lately

It’s no secret that this winter has been a tough one, and I feel like I have complained my fair share about it in this blog… but I guess I am about to do it some more. I have struggled with anxiety for some years now (arguably since my childhood, but we won’t cite my…

Remembering Italy on Film

I’ve been feeling rather nostalgic lately. Enjoying the memories of days past, because looking forward to the days ahead feels impossible. Planning little things to break down the months and the never ending strand of working days used to be my most efficient tool to make myself happy (or, in the winter, to simply keep…

The worst Birthday I’ve ever had

1st of March. How I used to love that date. A day to feel special, a day where all your loved ones call you, message you, maybe even get you little presents. A day where you get to share delicious cake with everyone around you. I used to walk with a spring in my step…

I guess I don’t hate everything about Winter

February second, and I am typing this from my balcony, wrapped in a blanket and my fluffiest coat, while I enjoy the last minutes of daylight. Before moving to Munich I would have looked at myself and thought I was insane “It’s cold, girl. Go inside!”, but now it makes sense. It makes sense to…

New Year’s Resolutions I have failed to keep

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?

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?…

Our New Apartment in Munich

As I mentioned in one of my lasts posts my boyfriend and I moved to a new place in the beginning of June. To say it was a stressful process is a bit of an understatement, but I’d rather forget those nights of obsessing over emails and going through apartment visits in our head trying…
