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...

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...

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!

About a year ago, I wrote my essay for the Nathoo Bursary and it was the first time I wrote an application for a bursary. It felt weird since the obvious reason for my application was that my parents could not afford to send me to Cambridge, but that would be everyone's reason for applying. So I thought about what could make my application special and tried to convey this in my essay. This was the prompt: 

Please write a personal statement about your achievements, your aspirations for your studies in...

Hey loves!

Do you have a friend you used to hang out with but now, your chat has been inactive for months? What started as awkward ‘how are you?’s and one-line answers slowly turned into less and less activity. Until you both gave up. And moved on.

Being back in my German hometown made me realise how many friendships I formed here were lost. Being back felt strange because although the city is still familiar, I lack connections to its people. I know my way around the public transport system and I know how much...

Hey loves!

I left my rabbit Mümmeline (short: Mümi) with the vet on Tuesday because she needed to have surgery. Mümi had a tumour on her cheek and it got bigger and bigger over the past few months. We were initially advised against the surgery since Mümi is already 10 years old and anaesthesia is pretty tough for small rabbits. But since the tumour had grown so massively, our vet later advised us that the surgery was in Mümi's best interest. 

Saying yes to a rather dangerous surgery for your pet is never e...

Hey loves!

I have a few poems saved in a folder in the cloud so I can revisit them whenever I feel like it. Poems that make it to that folder are poems that have moved me in some way or another. I first started reading poetry in my German classes in high school and I did not really like it. Poets were telling the truth in riddles and hid behind metaphors and I had a hard time understanding them. But my teacher made it feel like a treasure hunt that could only be solved by going through every line with utmost c...

Hey loves!

Making the above video had a somewhat therapeutic effect on me, but posting it and scheduling it as a premiere for today was scary. I am proud of the video and I honestly believe it is the most important video I have ever uploaded. But sharing this part of my life scared me. If you have not yet watched the video, please consider this a spoiler alert for anything said in the video!

Back in my first term at Cambridge, I already felt unhappy often times and I noticed that I started to withdraw from as m...

Hey loves!

I honestly wish that I would not need to write this post. I started writing my blog back in 2015 because I wanted to share my pictures without their value being defined by the likes they get. This website is my personal creative space. I post whatever is on my mind on here and I love interacting with you guys and sharing my content! I am a relatively small content creator on the internet and I would honestly not have expected that people would steal my content. 

But it has happened to me more than on...
