Hey loves!

It has been quite a while since I last wrote a post on here. I have not forgotten about this blog, but whenever I write a post, I want to take my time writing it and reflecting on the things I write about. The past few weeks were very busy and so I decided to take a little break from writing this blog in order to make sure that my posts stay reflective and that I enjoy writing them. Cambridge tends to get very busy around mid-term time since that is the time when much work is due. 

Although the past...

Dear Fresher,

This is a post for you. The you that came to Cambridge a few weeks ago and has now had their first full week of lectures and supervisions. Maybe you have already decided which societies' meetings you will continue to attend. And you probably already have a group of people to hang out with during breaks. At this point, you might be in the process of realising that while you may love your degree, reading thousands of pages on a complicated theory can nonetheless be exhausting. Now that Freshers' We...

Hey loves! 

I returned to university a week ago and my classes will start in a few days. Going back to Cambridge felt weird since I had taken a break from university a few months ago due to my mental health. A few days ago, I looked back at the video where I talked about my mental health struggles and there was this scene where I talked about hoping to look at this video in a few months' time and feeling better. Hearing myself say that made me want to hug my past self and tell her that things did indeed get be...

Hey loves!

A few weeks ago, I first came across the trailer for the TV show "Speechless" on YouTube and I immediately knew that I would have to watch this show! I just had to know how the life of this incredible family would continue throughout the show. 

I finished the first season of the show a few days ago and I am so grateful that I watched it (season two, I'm coming!). What I love so much about this show is the way it deals with the disability of one of the characters - the show is not shy to use humour bu...

Hey loves!

It has been a rather interesting week for me - I was home alone because my mother was travelling, I re-binge watched Killing Eve, and, oh yeah - almost forgot - I was called a nazi on the internet. I usually check my creator space on YouTube once a day to see if there are any comments I need to reply to and I came across a comment where someone compared me to a nazi. As someone who has called out a fair amount of people for making Holocaust jokes, hosted several guest speakers on different genocides...

Hey loves!

When I opened up my Twitter feed last morning and saw the BBC's report that the UK government would ask the Queen to prorogue Parliament, I was shocked. I retweeted it with a comment and then decided to wait for a little to see what would happen. 

When the Queen signed off on the prorogation later in the day, I was disappointed. I understand that she did not have much choice, but it was still hard to see that the country I study in (and which I have always considered a sound democracy) to have its le...

Hey loves!

I love fashion and experimenting with it, but I have realised that I have collected quite many clothes over the past few years due to trying to keep up with trends but also because I moved around a lot (I studied on three different continents over the past few years) and I was not always able to bring everything I needed. Decluttering my wardrobe is something I knew I had to do for a few months now, but I always put it off because decluttering did not sound like fun. So I decided to make it fun. 

Whe...

Hey loves!

My cousin and I left Hong Kong a few hours ago and I am writing this post on our plane to Helsinki from where we will be flying back to Germany. Although I absolutely love traveling and exploring new places, the actual act of getting from A to B is usually time-consuming, annoying, and filled with carrying lots of heavy stuff you already regret bringing. Somehow, our travel yesterday was none of that. We managed to get on a complimentary shuttle bus to an in-town check-in place (yes, you can actuall...

Hey loves!

When my mother booked my flight to Hong Kong, the extradition bill had not even been put forward and there was no reason to believe that I would end up in Hong Kong while some of its biggest protests would take place. By the time I boarded my flight, the controversial bill had been put forward and people had already started protesting against it. Since I have been here, the amount of protests per week has increased and the police and protestors have clashed more and more often. Yesterday, thousands...

Hey loves!

Hong Kong had its first typhoon 8 signal today (which basically means stay inside or get wet). Rainy days like these are the days where my addiction to bookstores comes in handy. I read three books over the past few days and I would love to share my thoughts on them with you: 

The Unwinding of the Miracle

Are you ready to cry? Because I can assure you that this book will make you cry. I was about forty pages into the book and it had already broken my heart three times. In The Unwinding of the Miracle*...
