you can’t imagine how tired I am right now. Or maybe you can. I definitely shouldn’t be blogging and editing pictures right now but rather have a sower, prepare my lunch and go to sleep. Tomorrow is my first fitting of all the pieces we’ve sown to date in uni, and I need to make final completions on one piece. But anyway, I am well prepared for the next day most nights and tonight I feel like just not thinking about tomorrow.
What I want to save here, on my blog, today, is how grateful, honestly thankful I am for my studies. No matter how stressful it can get, I am happy to be at a place that stimulates my spirit to be active and my mind to get creative. It can be a daily struggly but ultimately I am glad to do what I am doing. And also to be surrounded by a fair amount of kind, lovely, cooperative and funny people! This way I almost don’t mind spending 9 to 10 hours a day in Uni, as it is mostly practical and easy-going 🙂
She came and she left after 22 intense hours. Not that she is actually leaving, just switching home towns, as for me, she is part of the flatshare just as I am part of hers! So Anna and I finally got to spent time in my new home and as usual, it didn’t take us a lot of time to dive deep and get on the philosophic and spiritual wave. Also, what I notice every time is that face-to-face talking about thoughts and feelings is worth a mint!! Like how we both feel about living with other people and not sharing a room anymore, how we perceive our friendship etc!
You guys, wait with evaluating a situation until you have heard the other sides perception! Talking is everyting 🙂
Moreover, we made it to the food store and later cooked a freaking filling vegan dinner! Well, there may be healthier things than potato rösti (hash browns), but the vietnamese summer rolls were some real goodness consisting of heaps of fresh veggies, tofu and rice noodles! Talking of food I want to remind myself: see it as energy. An unripe mango does not have any nutritional value, so a fruit based diet in germany (especially in autumn, winter, spring) just doesn’t work so well! Here we have all kinds of cabbage, tubers, ground veggies.. yay! 😀 But seriously; I love me some mashed potatoes with fried veggies and some sort of beans or other rprotein sources 🙂
Another “moving -in” sunday! This time we painted a wall, 2 massive chalkboards and set up some stuff! Tis literally screamed for kebab so I went to get some oriental goodness! We have this kebab and falafel place just around the corner that has looooots of vegan options! From tofu to seitan döner/burger, falafel,vegan dürüm, 5 vegan sauces and a lot more that I can’t remember rn 😛 I had a vegan falafel kebab without bread, so actually just salad (love the kabab salad!) wit hummus, mango sauce, aubergine paste and fresh homemade falafel.
Today was packed as well. Uni till 5 with one really good class about art history, then I shopped some art supplies and deco items that were on sale (I’m such a sale sucker hahaha) , next I rushed home and arrived JUST ON TIME to catch the postman (who had a package for me). Further I went to the post office to drop off a parcel and afterwards went back to the city again to meet Vero and Enn, two girls I study with. After a short visit at Vero Moda which yielded me 3 very needed trousers I took the tram home and helped Eva, carrying her stuff into the flat (late night workout!). Now I should be in bed sleeping, but no, I am blogging for you guys haha! 9 days till we get w-lan by the way! I hope you are doing great loves, catch you later and good night ❤ xxx
Hola gente! This is yesterdays post that I couldn’t upload so ere you go:
Today Lotte arrived and we are finally all together for the first time! I spent the night at my mum’s place and got back at 4 pm, then Eva and I unpacked like 10.000 pieces of kitchen stuff from Lotti and later had pumpkin soup for dinner! Tommorrow is Ikea-time to get a few last things 🙂 (Turned out we needed so much stuff again…ugh. But it is getting more and more homely now)
btw, did I tell you about my second day at uni? It was lush, we had a crafts test where our sewing skills were tested (I was so nervous before that but in the end it was super chill!) and therefore I already got to work on the sewing machine! So much fun 🙂
Wow this blogging game is going strong right know haha! Today wasn’t that super special, I went grocery shopping and enjoyed carrying home bags that had a min weight of 177253 kg. New-flat “problems”:D Then I cleaned the flat and eventually decided to spend the evening at my mums place (free food included! :P). It’s always good to see her and my stepdad,so I just did 🙂
Anyway, here you’ve got a glimpse of my new room! It’s finally kinda done and I am super happy with the result 🙂 It’s both cozy and “clean” enough for a productive creativity flow. Tomorrow Lotti (my friend and flatmate) is gonna come to our new home and truly moving in :))
So much for that…right now I am listening to Glen Hansards performance at the Rudolstadt Festival and soon getting ready for bed. I hope you have a fantastic friday and a weekend to look forward to! xxx Jule
Little throwback to Porto when I only needed a light trenchcoat in FEBRUARY compared to now, OCTOBER, were I need to cover myself in 2 jumpers and a wool jacket!
So today is a real autumn day… 6 degrees and rain. Brrr. At least I got some things sorted and I tomorrow and friday off (strike!). But somehow I don’t really know what to do with all that time after 2 fully packed days haha! Deffo some food and art supply shopping.
J., a friend of me and the family, just stopped by and together we built a clothing rack for my room! I just put some photos on my walls as well, which make the whole room soooo much cozier!
However, now I’m off to catch up with the Jon Olsson vlogs since that internet stick is working (and we’ve got no wifi yet).
Talk to you later lil carrot cakes (craving some) <3<3<3
It’s been long that I felt THAT exited (and a bit anxious) about an upcoming event like I did yesterday. I really didn’t know how to feel about: my first day at Uni.
Luckily, before going to bed I realized that it all really isn’t that bad and that there is no need to take this topic too seriously!
Therefore I just chilled and the moment I entered the building (and met a really nice girl from Vietnam who studies the same as me) I stopped being nervous about the big unknown and it felt kinda familiar already. It’s really nothing more or different than school… Anyway, the whole day was super exhausting (loooooots of new input) but now I am actually looking forward to tomorrow! In case you didn’t know (no problem :P): I just started studying fashion design in Leipzig/Germany 🙂
So we’ll see how it goes but I already love my new flat and feel home and love to welcome guests and friends and and and 😛
Life got upgraded yesterday; I bought myself a new lens, which is barely larger than the lid of a marmalade jar! It’s the Panasonic Lumix 20mm/f1.7 Pancake (did I hear pancake??) lens which is a prime lens and, obviously, extremely light-sensitive with it’s wide aperture!
I got it through eBay-kleinanzeigen.de which I currently am obsessed with! It’s so light that I am able to carry my fairly big Lumix GH3 in my purse all day! A dream!
So yesterday my sister and I went to a furniture shop to get me a mattress and pillow, then we wanted to collect a chair (via eBay again) but it didn’t fit my need. So we went to my new flatshare and put up my bed, had chinese take-away and cider and just chilled on the floor in that empty flat… real cozy, honestly 😀
The next days are all about moving in and moving stuff, so… weird. Anytime I moved in the last 2 years (abroad) I didn’t have too much stuff and no furniture. But I am so so so lucky and grateful to have those glorious people around who help me day in and out! Like in general… I am fricking thankful for my family and friends. They give me so much and deserve all my love ❤
Puh, I guess I can say without any exaggeration that I’ve been super lazy blogging!
But not because I didn’t have any ideas or feel like it, no… I’ve been actually super busy doing other things. I know, this is not typically me. But the last few weeks were so packed with all that stuff that is leading me into the life of a student. New flat, new flatmates, worries and excitement towards the future! It’s funny playing this society game haha! I mean how hilarious is life? 7 months ago I didn’t waste a single thought on the option of studying 😀 So now I’ll take things as they are and give my best to stay conscious and always remember the true values of life!
Like moments like this. I said it before and I’ll say it again:
My closest friends and family can always come to mine. Babe, I’m honest. Looking forward to the day that I come home and bae is laying in my bed (with some vegan baked goods haha or mashed potatoes and peas). This also goes out to my sweetest sister, as well as my cousin. Just to count a few 🙂
Just a quick update: I spent a fuckin lovely weekend with Anna here in Leipzig and the Elbe Sandstone Mountains (for the Germans out there: yes, that is supposed to be the right translation 😛 ), it was a very very active one and we left our comfort zones multiple times! I’ll upload pictures and reports later, right now I am not feeling so well, catched a cold Also I gotta go make rosemary potato wedges 😀
