How to Make 2018. Better

Monday, January 8, 2018



I am always a bit sceptical towards those who claim to be "passionate about self-development". Self-development just sounds like a bunch of nothing, a bunch of motivational quotes without any true value, reminds me of NLP, and I have nothing good to say about that one.

However, by no means does this mean I am a stagnation proponent!

For a moment there I though I might be a member of a group that doesn't view self-development as a goal. But that is not true. Of course I want to be a better person than I was yesterday.

Happy New Year.

Tuesday, January 2, 2018



Hello, lovely people. I hope you're devouring all the nice food there is!


Happy New Year!


I spent the last day of the last year doing light housework (I thought I would vacuum the day after; I don’t know if this officially counts as light housework as well, but the vacuum cleaner in this house is hard to handle and I usually need a shower afterwards).

Hello there! How is everyone? Have you taken advantage yet of the Black Friday? I might start a new job on Tuesday; if so, I will definitely visit Asos and shop my heart out! So keep your fingers crossed for me. Not just for the shopping, but this job in general :) I hope you have a great weekend! And here are some links you might enjoy...

Hello dear friends! As you ready to have an awesome weekend? (I suppose I'm talking to the majority who just got up; my weekend is half-way through!) And yes, of course that an awesome weekend can consist of #netflixandchill, what else? :) Though I must admit I still have not fully jumped on the Netflix bandwagon. I was recently talking to a dear friend and then spontaneously used the words "streaming service", which left her in shock because, as she put it, it's Netflix, it is something that hugs you at night and stays by your side when the world shatters, how can you say it's just a streaming service? :) Anyway, I'm watching Better Call Saul (after having devoured Breaking Bad) and I seriously want to go to New Mexico. But if you've been here a while, you know it's nothing new. I want to go everywhere. :) However, since you're not here today to read about my travel wish list, here are some weekend links for you to enjoy.

Three Months in New Zealand

Friday, November 17, 2017



I am sitting on a terrace, looking at a palm tree in the backyard. The sun is stroking my face. Actually, no, this is an understatement: the sun is aggressively burning my skin, at least that’s what I feel, even though I just applied sunscreen. My laptop keyboard has become hot in mere minutes, so each stroke feels like a little burn on the top of my fingers. And my typing is pretty fast. I even have that in writing. So, that's a lot of burning.

Today marks three months since I landed in Aotearoa, or New Zealand if you please.

Hi everyone! The leaf is for my readers from the Northern Hemisphere, who make the most of my readership anyway. No falling leaves here, though! But at least I got my hands at a book. I finally borrowed a Kindle, since I've been having issues with ordering a battery online throughout this whole year, basically. I'm currently reading The Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk. I saw the movie three years ago, so I'm missing out on the great plot twist. Hah, I wish I could see my own face back then! Did you watch it? (Hope you did so you understand what I'm talking about. If not, do so!) Anyway, here's my choice of this week's links, and I hope you'll like some of them. Have a great weekend!

Hello! How is everyone doing? What are you up to this weekend? We're having a cloudy and rainy one—who would have thought it's spring. I just recently told a friend from back home how much the weather changes every day, and he was like "oh... I thought it was the land of eternal spring". Well, it depends on the spring you're used to, and this is not mine! On the bright side though, I landed a weekend job after a search that took ages, and I'm hoping to get a week job soon as well! A girl needs her dollars, right. Anyway, here are the links I liked this week. Oh, and make sure to check out my piece on free things to do in Berlin, a guest post I did for the lovely Melissa from A Broken Backpack.

Weekend Reads #89

I have never experienced weather moodier than the one we have in New Zealand. Which is the reason I have no idea how to dress properly here; and by properly I only mean in a way that feels good and is not too cold nor too hot. Impossible! Also, have you ever got a sunburn through your clothes? Why, you didn't think it could happen? It can, and I had the misfortune to witness it firsthand. How do people even live here? By the way, it is SO WEIRD that we're in the second half of October and all I keep hearing is "summer is coming". 

Okay, maybe this was too much weather talk? :) What are you up to this weekend? We're having a long one, as it's Labor day on Monday. I'd love it if it were warmer so I could finally walk to the beach. I literally see the ocean when I get outside of the house, but being born and raised in a plain, I'm hesitant to walk that much uphill. (I know sea is downhill, duhh. But this is New Zealand, subjective feeling: everything is uphill.) Anyway, here are some links for you to explore.


Berlin Guide For Newbies

Thursday, October 19, 2017



I always hated how some bloggers sound pretentious starting their blog posts with “everybody asked me to write about (some random topic), so finally here it is”. That’s why I was super hesitant to start in the same manner; but I can list at least several people who did ask me to post a detailed Berlin guide they could pass on to their friends traveling to the city. So okay, it wasn’t “everybody”, but it still made me feel so humble at times. And so—here it is. (Self-cringe!)

Hello lovely people. How's everything? I hope you have a good weekend. By the way, I'm toying with the idea of not doing the Weekend Reads anymore. It's not anything final, just an idea. They might transform or something. Any guidelines from you? Anyway, here are the links for this weekend.
