These pictures make me dream of warm, dusty pink summer days.Breakfast with a friend, coating oneself with that warmth in the air, the room bathed in light. You are about to slip into your favorite sheer summer dress and the strap sandals that are so perfectly adjusted to your feet because of long summer walks over the past years.
Until then, I enjoy my day off with capturing these visions via photographs and sharing it with you guys, hoping to stimulate you own sentiency for summery vibes ❤
Hello friends! Just got a notification from bea to update my blog and sometimes I just need an reminder, because days go by and there are so many things to get done, but then again it is so nice to save some thoughts on my blog for later.
So what is going on? I currently have a week off and use it to catch up on my nutritional health studies and hopefully finish some uni homework. I’ve been enjoying a lot of family time lately and this is grounding me a lot! Tomorrow (oh em gee?!?!) I’ll be heading to Berlin to freak out together with Anna about the fact that we’ll be in Amsterdam a few hours later :O I’ve never consciously been in Amsterdam (maybe as a kid but I can’t remember) and I know from my friends that it’s EPIC! So really looking forward to visit this city and our former housemate Millie from Bristol : )))
Also I am thinking about doing a little column about my fashion design studies, like what is happening in the courses, the tasks etc. Would that be interesting to you guys? I, personally, never had a clear idea of what art students actually do and how the study looks like 🙂 Let me know xx
Alright, I’ll give my best to fill my beloved blog more often, as an inspiration for you and me as well! Have a blessed day ❤
Trust, to me, is a key element for a balanced life. Trust is what slows down stressful moments. When I am worrying about an specific outcome, time, my ability, the future, health, relationships, STUFF – I remember to trust. Because if I know one thing, then it is that everything, in the end, fits together and makes perfect sense! There is a reason to all that is in life. Having trust doesn’t mean to stop caring about the events in your life, as in “it doesn’t matter what I do, life will happen as it will anyway”. No, take the strings and make it what you want it to be, but relax when you are in a situation where you can’t assume control anymore. Have faith, that you’re exactly where you’re supposed to be. For instance, when I rush in the morning and have to wait for train, already anticipating that I’ll be late, I can either stress out internally or just “let it be”. Because there is no point in overcalculating here, I am where I am and if I trust, things will work out (and then, the prof is late as well or no one noticed that I was late etc). Just as we have the possibility to create our own life we have the option to let life guide us now and then 🙂
I do trust that the universe has my back and that is has grand intentions for my existence here on earth, so why not just chill? xx Jule
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
Just another wonderful day in the capital with a girl without a label. I just realized again that even the label “friend” constrains the relationship with the expectations and prototypes society imposes on us. Besides kindness, just act like you feel towards a person. You esteem me? Spent a little of your precious time with me as a present. Help me out when I need support. Jump for joy with me when life is sweet. Not because you are my friend but because you enjoy us being together 🙂
A group of my old friends from school and I went to Poland and the city of Danzig (Gdansk) to do what we did in Prague 2 years earlier: coming together to camp, have fun, drink, laugh, cook, chill etc. This time our campground was almost directly at the beach (5 mins walking) and we had a huge “base camp” framed by a DDR caravan , VW T5, TIPI tent, a hammock, ale-benches and a tripod holding a huge kettle/cauldron. I didn’t take a camera this year because it just nicer sometimes not to think of taking pictures all the time, but these two here, which I took in Prague, pretty much show the situation!
Well, after 7 days of heavy rain to baking heat we made it back and I went straight to Anna’s. It took us less than an hour and we were diving deeper than my head could process that quickly! We talked about the anunaki “gods” and how there is no such thing like a setting sun, because it’s just us who “turn our backs to the sun”. The sun itself shines day and night so basically there’s absolutely no need for TIME as in DAYTIME and NIGHTTIME. The NOW finally made perfect sense because in the past I used to think:
“Ok if time does not exist and time counting is manmade, why do we have day and night?” But then it hit me and I actually felt dizzy, because the simple fact that the earth is circling doesn’t mean that we need the concept of time.
Howsoever, this is kinda hard to explain. What we have is now and that is more than enough 🙂 Kiss!
Yesterday, when I stood unter the shower, I thought about the feeling of being in love and how the whole world changes, how some things get more meaningful and others don’t. How it is so magical that for everyone else the world seems normal but for you everything sparkles.
And then I realized that this sort of feeling isn’t something I have to wait for and that depends on acceptance by others, no, I can just create it myself. Because love equals self love, attention equals self-awareness,
and it is still your choice how you want to perceive the world 🙂
I finally got some (more professional than printing paper) sketching paper! And charcoal and markers 🙂 Unfortunately I had so little time to look around the enourmus art supplies store and was so stressed getting home cycling against super strong winds! I was already late for frisbee training, but somehow (also at the checkout of the grocery store) I managed to stay super calm and not to think about the running time… So I eventually made it to my training, 30 mins late but whatever, it was so worth it. What exited me the most was that everybody loved the idea of staying in contact and sharing numbers… because it was our last training and I didn’t want to let the group split up. I wasn’t sure if this matched the opinion of my team members but obviously it did ! After the training we had a lovely barbecue and I got to know some people better… I am always so grateful for that! Even more if I vibe with them on some level.. 🙂 This city is still kinda new to me and I’m happy to find connection, BUT I still think of my babe(s) all the time 🙂 Ready for new adventures, familiar and new countries, beaches, ocean, wild fruits, mountains, deep talks.
I remember what I wrote when I moved to England 2 years ago … I may be somewhere else, take pretty pictures ,do new stuff, meet people and whatever … But I am still Jule, the one YOU got to know if you know my soul, and I am still there 🙂
Oh these ups and downs! I could already tell this morning that I’d feel weird tonight.
Got up at 6:30 am and started the day slowly, all relaxed 🙂 Then, to get an overall impression, I watched videos about fashion design portfolios (those you need to apply for an academy or uni). I felt overwhelmed because what I saw was so different to my expectations… so different to what I saw myself capable of doing! So – trap of comparison.
Anyhow, I couldn’t see the passion in the things I do anymore. It was there once, for sure, but the question is: what is my motivation? Getting all perfectly prepared for my future and sacrificing the present? No way! But that was the case… Why am I speaking in past tenses? Because I asked my soul. It just came over me and I was in a dialogue with my soul.
“What is it that you love? I know you know it and therefore I know it deep down, but what is it? Is it something I have to experience yet?” I asked my soul.
The answer came as a feeling. Truly, I encourage you to do the same. If you really seek an answer, you’ll receive ist.
“You already do the things you love. You just can’t enjoy it anymore because you do it for a future event… not for yourself. If the future wouldn’t matter and there were no plans, how would you have spent your day? What is it that you enjoy?”
And I realised… it is all there. Simply the worries about the future toke up the place of my joy. I mean it is okay to have an idea of the future… but you still live NOW and everything you do, be it meaningful or not, you should do because you enjoy it RIGHT NOW. I actually love spending my day teaching myself drawing, sewing, reading, studying, diving deep. And its so much more fun if you are fully present. Get my drift?
There was a time when i didn’t know what I loved at all. Now I know a few things. This is great. Excuse me, I’m off reading ❤
P.S.: Just realized how divinely things turn out when you don’t plan. Just floating. Peace xx
Today I spent my day making sweet-potato pancakes & yes, this is a thing and makes the purrrfect vegan and gluten free american pancakes – and sushi. Also with keeping up with my studies (hurry hurry 😛 ) and finally going to my Ultimate frisbee training. So happy that, eventually, my feet are safe and sound again so I could give my all during the session! But the best part of the day is actually NOW and started with a single feeling, because I remembered the feeling I had when I lived in England. Not because of England but because of the freedom and “isolation” (more or less) of society and its standards. Of talking to a person on such a level that made me dream and believe and see the whole big thing, the universal life. Surprisingly enough, that person and me are currently missing the place we called home for 18 months. Never say never, we all know that, and it’s true. Ohh how sweet it is to enjoy life knowing that all the shit that might destroy your inner peace is just an absolute joke and the freedom you love is always around… or around the corner. It’s a feeling really and right know it has something to do with Bristol (and a person that chose/chooses to spend time with me) ❤
