Hey loves!

I began the past week in Baden-Baden, a lovely small town in Germany. Although the town is known for its thermal baths, parks and restaurants, my mom and I were not there for a holiday. We travelled to Baden-Baden on Sunday afternoon because I had to make an early doctor's appointment on Monday. 

Although I share a lot on here and in other corners of the internet, I have never talked about something which has bothered me for years: pain in different parts of my body. I occasionally get pain in my ank...

Hey loves!

I haven't posted on here in a while and to be honest, I did not really feel like I had anything to say. I only write posts for this website when I have something I want to share, and for the past few weeks I did not really have anything. About two weeks ago, I finished my final exams. And it is hard to describe this feeling, but whenever I finish an exam period, I feel like I lose that one thing around which my entire life existed. Does that sound weird? Let me explain. 

I don't feel like my life rev...

#BlackLivesMatter is currently on all social media and most of the people you follow have probably posted about it (myself included). What I have seen with many of my friends and also influencers I follow appears to be a panic not to be doing enough, stemming from a fear to be called out for 'not doing your part.' Some people I follow share over ten different resource banks on the topic per day. Have they really looked into all the resources listed there? Have they read those things themselves? Or w...

My hometown has a history of protests getting big. Shortly before I left for boarding school at age 16, people were protesting against a construction project for a train station - after those protests, the entire country knew about project "Stuttgart 21." Now, there is a new wave of protests. This time, the opposed object is the protective measures the government has put in place to combat the coronavirus. Yesterday's protest had a permit for 5,000 people and thousands of people showed up.

I am a supporter of...

Hey loves!

Being alone with yourself in quarantine can be a great time of rediscovering old hobbies, re-connecting with friends, taking on a new hobby ... but it can also be the perfect time for taking your flaws and picking on them. It is the perfect time for old fears to come back from under the bed. So while this can be a positive time, it is easy to fall into lows. 

Personally, I found it quite easy for myself to spend an extra few minutes in front of the mirror to point out to myself all the little red spo...

Hey loves! 

I have not written a post on here in weeks and the honest reason is that I felt like I had nothing to say. I normally write about whatever is on my mind, but it feels like a monotony has taken over my life. Do not get me wrong, I actually enjoy staying home and it is not something that bothers me. But there is simply little to no variety to my life at the moment. I get up at the same time every morning, sit down at my desk latest at 8am and start my live study with me sessions on my YouTube channel...

Hey loves! 

The past weeks have been crazy. I guess they probably have been for most of you, too. Over the past few weeks, I had to make a few difficult decisions and I ended up packing up my entire life in 24 hours to leave the UK and go back home to Germany. But let us start at the beginning. 

When I finished my term, the first signs started to occur that my final term of my second year may not happen as it normally would. But instead of being told to leave the university and go back home, my university told...

Hey loves!

When I returned to YouTube after losing Mümi, I made a video about a typical day in my life. I did not expect it to get as many views as my other videos normally do since I had been away from YouTube for a few weeks. Instead, it got hundreds of thousands of views and my channel passed over one million views across all its videos. 

I had videos get a few ten thousand views, but never anything in the hundreds of thousands. On the one hand, I was so proud of having so many views. It was a great comeback...

Hey loves!

When I got back to Cambridge after the winter break, I walked into my dorm room and I was completely overwhelmed. I had actually extended my time at home after we lost our rabbit Mümi because I felt like I needed some more time with my family to deal with the loss. But grief is not something you can schedule and turn off when it is time to focus on school or anything else. 

As you may have seen in my dorm tour video, my room is filled with rabbit-related decorations: 

My rabbit was a big part of my li...

Hey loves!

There is a guy in Chicago, probably currently struggling to get it together to actually get his PhD in Physics. He and I met on my first day at St. John's College, Cambridge and we somehow became friends. Now, one and a half years after talking to him for the first time in the buttery that morning, we are close friends and we text a lot. 

Since he was a graduate student at the college, he left after the last academic year and he is now doing his best to get his PhD. Given that he is so far away, I ca...
