I am not the biggest enthusiast about setting high goals and creating perfect to-do lists. Such single points that need to be achieved... life is not as narrow as that. But still, I guess it's never a bad idea to imagine the future, to straighten out priorities and to organize tasks. The question I try... Continue Reading →
Back from my Easter visit at my parents and relatives place in the country I want to recap my Outfit choice for Easter Sunday. Easter Sunday has always been one of my favorite holidays. I still have memories of when I was very small, running through my Grandmother's garden, searching for eggs and sweets. Presents... Continue Reading →
Are self-sewn clothes more sustainable than the ones out of fast fashion stores? I love to design and sew my own clothes. When I am working at a new project, that's the one thing in my life where I forget time and space. It happens that I sit down at 5 pm and then stop... Continue Reading →
My social circle consists of many people that work and study with me. This means, we are all occupied with reading academic texts, chewing through spread sheet after spread sheet of dry data, and sitting in front of the computer, typing e-mails and filling out forms. I feel truly blessed to work with so many... Continue Reading →
So I went to this Party at the weekend. It was hosted by one of my student colleagues in her shared flat and I was just like one imagines such parties: Stuffed rooms, sitting on the floor and a bathtub filled with beer - how marvelous. I just knew little people, but I had great... Continue Reading →
We are a society of Materialists. A sentence most of us heard more often than once. Especially when you are living in the global north, there is a never ending pile of things one could need and want and buy and carry home in bags and receive in parcels. This lifestyle also shows in the... Continue Reading →
ere is the promised update, when the little spring rebels-would start to show. The blossoms will open anyday now. I wrote down the story of Barbara Branches and thier meaning to me in an older post of mine: https://livingwithyourstuff.wordpress.com/2017/12/10/barbara-branches/
[MILD SPOILERS: About the Characters in the film and the set. Nothing about the plot (As if there is much plot in a Jarmusch film (which I truly appreciate))] This probably won’t be the last time I will write about the film “Only Lovers Left Alive” by Jim Jarmusch. It is my favourite movie and this is because, for me, it is a personal guide how I want to live and work as an artist...
In my family we follow the custom, that on December the 4th, we bring into our home a bouquet of Barbara Branches. These are branches cut off fruit-bearing trees like cherry trees or apple trees. It is one of my favourite traditions throughout the year and I want to tell you why...
When Christoph first brought forward the proposal to sell a great part of our furniture, I was taken aback and refused this unimaginable thought. What should happen to all our stuff? In my head I saw a flat where everything is lying around on the naked floor. Stacks of T-shirts, books, clutter, in front of empty walls. But I love that he gave this impulse of change, like a rush of cold water hitting you unprepared and waking you up to the bones. I guess I really needed it in my life right now. Break up those old thoughts and those rusty brain clusters...
