Well, hey!

Uh, I am so creative. But seriously, those Intros?! Sometimes they kill me. I might just talk myself out of a smart ass intro by talking about the fact that I threw a chewing gum out of my car window yesterday and it got stuck on the glass. I forgot it within a minute (this is kind of usual around my parts – the forgetting thing I mean, not the chewing gum) and let down the window and……well, it’s all over the place now. So, today I KNEELED beside my car and tried to get it off with nail polish remover. I don’t know why this shit always happens to me but I am damn near close to call it the bane not only of my existence, but of my freaking LIFE.



Ok, so now that this is done, let’s do a CURRENTLY post! Way too long since I babbled about random shenanigans and light hearted non-sense. Marvelous, right??

Current Book:



I am not entirely convinced about her style of writing, but I LOVE the stories. And yes, I read in German – my reading at work or during the day is mostly limited to English. Though my articles are always published in both languages, so I got to practise my formal German a little more!

Reading is an activity I LOVE to bits but don’t do nearly as much as I would like to due to work and being too busy. Yet I never skip my 10-15 minutes before bedtime when I grab my book and drown into this other world. Best time of the day.

Current music:

That’s such an Oldie which reminds me of my HipHop/Funk era – which actually is still going strong.

Current Guilty Pleasure:

I am a huge advocate of pleasures NEVER having something to do with guilt. Hmmm. Don’t go too far. I talk about the easy things. Like booze and fries and stuff. Or like flying out to Prague on a whim on Wednesday to see Mom and spend time with her doing nothing. Nothing but pleasurable things. So goddamn needed.

satcI never said we are going to go shopping. We workout. Go with it.

Current Food:

Since I am constantly working on my balance in my life currently, I also make an effort to fuel my body better. I grilled fish like a mad woman the last few days and I made a brown rice berry porridge for my breakfasts which deserves a pat on my muscly shoulder – it is DELICIOUS.

Current Confession:

I could whine all day but I don’t. I seriously can NOT stand myself in a bad mood, as well as I can not stand whiners. Pass me the wine and I promise I won’t whine, but I bring cheese and crackers. We can also add a kitchen dance party and make up a new dessert recipe. Cause after the cheese we crave sweet, right? K, ready.

Current Excitement:

OHMALAWWWWWWD, I am in the effing NEWSPAPER! AND on the front of their online magazine. I know. WHY would they do this. They had a theme focus last week which matched the subject of my blog – my Eating Disorder and my way out of it. It was quite…..intense, to say the least to read your story written by someone else.


IMG_7145 NewspaperCurrent Wish List:

Being here.

BeachCurrent Bane of Existence:

See my Intro.

Current Blessing.

Friends near and far. I might be a wise ass sometimes, but if they didn’t know already, they know it now – I’d be lost without them.




TripFriends FriendsCurrent Epiphany:

You can clean your car window of chewing gum with nail polish remover. Ok, that’s not funny anymore. Oh! I got the Hold. Finally.

Current Needs:

More Money, so I can travel. I also need more money so I am independent. Makes sense? I am not the one with the attitude that money makes happiness, but it helps in situations.

Oh, and more nights out. I went to visit my old friend Jay who I worked for for years in his (very successful) restaurant. It’s summer and we should go out and have fun, right?? SO good.


Current Triumph:

August and me are on a mission to make my English scores going up like a rocket. So I scored a freaking NINE in my speaking task last Saturday in my English class! NINE! Yeah, I scream it, sorry. Nine is best! BEEEST! I also had a 8.5 for the writing task. I got to work on those stupid table/graph analyses. Seriously. Ugh.

Current Fear:

The Future. It’s VERY rare that this happens here, but currently I am in doubts. It will show.

Current Laugh:

Your turn!

Who thought I would ever write again. Link in Bio. β€š'In essence, love is the consistent embodiment of care, compassion, kindness, and joy toward yourself, your partner, and each other as two interconnected and supported beings. If you encounter those feelings, you can't work around your own vulnerability.

But: there is one emotion that is stronger than fear, and that is forgiveness. For power is never simply a possession but an exercise; power is about how we understand ourselves. If we can forgive, we can let go. If we can let go, we can detach. If we can detach, we find happiness.' #blogger #heartstories #detachment #happiness
