Quote of the Day - 26.12.2016

“I love snow for the same reason I love Christmas: It brings people together while time stands still. Cozy couples lazily meandered the streets and children trudged sleds and chased snowballs. No one seemed to be in a rush to experience anything other than the glory of the day, with each other, whenever and however it happened.”  ― Rachel Cohn, Dash & Lily's Book of Dares

It´s a funny thing about stories. It doesn´t feel like you make them up, more like you find them.

That place you´ve always been heading for but never expected to go. - Steven Moffat

Quote of the Day - 06.12.2016

Some birds are not meant to be caged, that´s all. Their feathers are too bright, their songs too sweet and wild. So you let them go, or when you open the cage to feed them they somehow fly out past you. And the part of you that knows it was wrong to imprison them in the first place rejoices, but still, the place where you live is that much more drab and empty for their departure. - Stephen King, Different Seasons

[Something To Think About] Thanksgiving Thoughts

Thanskgiving is not a holiday in Germany, but I wish it would be. Not because of the turkey. Or the free day of work. But because of the idea of a specific day to say or think about the things you´re thankful for. We think much too less about the things we have and think much too often about the things we don´t have. 
So maybe we should take a moment to think about everything we´re thankful for. 

So here they are: The things I´m grateful for. In no specific order! 

I´m thankful for:


  • My parents who are always there for me. I love you both so much!
  • Time. We always think we don´t have enough of it, but we can make the time we have significant. Because we have to take the time we need. 
  • All those fighting for gender equality, womens right, education, marriage equality, LGBT rights and against racism, sexism, violence etc. 
  • Music. What would I do, if I couldn´t pump up the volume and sing as loud as I can to let go all the feelings hiding inside of me?
  • My little brother. Sometimes you annoy me as hell, but I know you are always there. And so am I. I love you! 
  • Laughter. Mostly there are sad or bored or tired faces in the suburban train around me. But sometimes there are people smiling or laughing. And this makes me happy. We should laugh at least once a day. Seems to be a wee bit, but if we think about it - when was the last time you laughed really loud about something? So much you were crying? 
  • My boyfriend. We´ve gone through some rough times and I know it wasn´t easy to be with me. But you still are and I´m grateful.
  • Charities like Lumos, WellChild, Anti-BullyingPro and so many more! The world´s a better place because of you!
  • Holidays and Vacation. Because it is great to have some free time to celebrate or just take time for yourself. 
  • My courage. It takes a lot of courage to stand up to yourself. And I do this every day. 
  • Sunsets. At the sea they are the most beautiful thing ever! But as well without sea they are simply breathtaking. Seeing the sun go down while knowing she will be there the next morning... incredible! 
  • Bow ties. Because bow ties are cool! 
  • My therapist group. All those lovely girls and boys helping each other. What would I do without you? I simply don´t know...
  • Education. Sadly there are so many girls and boys out there who don´t have the opportunity to get an education. I had and still have. 
  • My mind and imagination. My stupid, confusing, annyoing but as well incredible brain which can create whole new worlds and can´t stop thinking and remembers all those useless things. My endless imagination. It would be boring without you. 
  • Freedom. Because freedom is not something to be taken for granted. There are so many people who don´t have any freedom. 
  • Books. All those wonderful, inspirational books out there! Too many to read them all but I do my very best! I don´t know how my life would look like if I hadn´t the opportunity to escape the reality and see different worlds, because sometimes this is all which rescues me from the cold world outside and inside of me. 
  • My friends. There are not many left but some. You are the best. 
  • Cookies. We all need a cookie from time to time. 
  • Sunshine. The warm feel on your skin. Everything is better when the sun is shining. 
  • Pancakes. Because pancakes are the best food ever! 
  • My bed. Because it is warm and really cozy. Sometimes too cozy. 
  • Tears. Just letting go all the feels. Let it out. I would explode without my tears. 
  • Memories. We wouldn´t be ourselves if we would forget everything we´ve been through. Everything good and bad. 
  • Resting. Sometimes you need to rest to move on. 
  • The Night. I´m a children of the night. An owl. A nightlover. I think there´s nothing more beautiful than a night with stars and the moon and the silence around. 
  • My blog. Where I can post whatever I like to. I can pour out my heart and you´re listening. Thanks. 
  • New adventures. It don´t matter if it´s climbing up the highest mountain or asking a nice girl to go out. As long as you always take new chances and try something new. So many adventures left and wait for you! 
  • Dancing and teaching. Because dancing makes me feel better and teaching gives me a feeling of self-esteem.
  • Baby cats. Because they are the cutest animals on earth. I want to have one! Please??!
  • Hamsters. Because they are as well the cutest animals on earth. If I can´t have a baby cat, maybe I can have a baby hamster? 
  • My studies. I had the courage to say no to something I don´t like. I try something new. Made a new start. And I´m happy with it. 
  • Love. If I look around I have the feeling, that it gets colder. Not the weather but the society. So many hate and frustration. Maybe this is a good moment to appreciate all the love around. 
  • My dreams. Although they are mostly completly bullshit. But as well fascinating, scaring, funny...
  • My home. It´s cold and small and not a bit luxurious, but it´s home. 
  • Art. The world would be a dark place without art.
  • Warm socks. I would die without you. 
  • The people who aren´t like Trump. I´m thankful for everyone who isn´t racist, sexist, homophobic, islamophobic, violent, xenophobic...
  • TV-Shows. They can make me forget my own life for a while. 
  • Weekends. Because weekends are great. 
  • Rainbows. Some of the most beautiful things in our nature. The beauty of rain and sun combined. 
  • Nutella. My breakfast would be not even half as good without. 
  • And finally: I am happy to be alive. And this is really important. Because there were many days I weren´t and there are still days I wish it would be over. But I´m really trying to be thankful for life and I work on it day by day. So yes, I am happy to be alive. 
Happy Thanksgiving to all of you! 

Quote of the Day - 24.11.2016

Do you not think that there are things which you cannot understand, and yet which are; that some people see things that others cannot? But there are things old and new which must not be contemplate by men´s eyes, because they know - or think they know - some things which other men have told them. Ah, it is the fault of our science that it wants to explain all; and if it explain not, then it says there is nothing to explain. - Bram Stoker, Dracula

[Something To Think About] Thoughts about the US Election

I'm just shocked. 

I mean, 2016 seems to be completely insane, damaged and broken. And I don't even want to start talking about terroristic attacks, wars, murder and the deaths of loved people. I just want to talk about politics. 

First of all, the Austrian nearly voted a racist president. 
Then the Brexit... You go to sleep, thinking everything will be the same the next morning and then you wake up and the UK is no longer part of the European Union and literally everything seems to change. 
The AFD gets more and more votes every time they take part in an election. 
And now the Americans shows us once again that they can even top it and that it always can get worse. Now they have a president, the most powerful man in the world, who says that sexual assault against women is perfectly fine. Who thinks that people with different religion, sexuality or nationality don't have the right to be equal. 
He wants to build a fucking wall. 

Didn't we Germans had this before?
We had a wall. And before that we had a man telling his people that it's not okay to be different. And those were the darkest days of history! 
And I always thought that this history can change people and the way they are thinking but I guess I was wrong. It's completely bullshit. 
People doing the same mistakes over and over again. 

We learned nothing. 

This Election showed us one thing: that everything is possible. Everything. As well the bad things. 
And this makes me thinking about us. In about one year we are the ones voting. And it really scares me to believe that we are going to make the same mistake. 
All electable parties have a real lack on electable candidates. So who should we vote? We have Merkel. And after all these years she's not doing it that bad like everybody seems to think. But I think we need a change. We have had enough of Merkel and we need a different candidate. Because I strongly believe that the hate and anger especially against refugees will just grow on and on if it would be Merkel for another 4 years. But who? What if the AFD presents their candidate? Trump showed us that it even didn't need to be a high qualified candidate. And so many people seem to vote just to make a statement. Just because "Thanks Merkel!" or "The Brexit never will happen! I vote Brexit Yes!". Thanks men. Perfectly done. So women, LGBTs, people with different skin colours and religions voted Trump. And such people as well will vote for the AFD in Germany because they don't seem to think about what that will mean to them. It's like sheeps voting for the wolf to come and eat them. I actually don't know why so many voted for people with such racist and extreme statements. But they do. 

And this scares the hell out of me. 

And I look around and nothing is good.

This is not the world I want to live in! Where people get power because they hate Muslims, other religions, different sexuality, who discrimate people with other nationalities. 
People are equal. 
And I want to live in a world where it's perfectly fine to be different. Cause I want to be different! I don't want to be like everybody else just because... 
I want to be different, because that's me. And I want to live in a world that respects that. But the way the humans now choosed to go is definitely not the way which leads us to this. And this scares me. 

And all those women and as well men fought so hard so we can have the rights we have now, they would be completely torn apart and shocked, because they gave up everything! The gave up their lives, they fought so hard just because of those rights we are now seem to give up. 

And this is the wrong way. 
This is the wrong world. 

This is not the world I want to live in. 
And we should think about which way we want to go now. 

The way of hate, anger and unequality?
Or the way with equality, friendship and love? Are you willing to fight for this? For the equality and safety of women and men, different religions, sexualities and nationalities?

I know which way I will go. 

Do you?
