Spring of Life – Part II

Procrastination: Being trapped in a dream world that prevents us from living our dreams on the real one. My life so far was a steady monochord rhythm, two chords repeating day and night. I always thinking how the song would continue. As I turned my face to look at her on that spring afternoon, I heard the strings breaking.
No more music. No more nothing. My body went completely numb.  Continue reading “Spring of Life – Part II”

Spring of life – Part I

I traded seagulls for ravens. On my backpack I had three days worth of clothes, and a toothbrush. On my heart I had a lifetime worth of dreams. I waited too long for this, and I wonder why… I don’t want to think that I was too long trapped in my fears, in my anxiety, such a cliché, right? I mean, being so aware of the cockroaches on my head I should have known better, shouldn’t I?

Spilled wine

How many of my thoughts are just spilled wine? Promises of a future that became stains. They will always be there for me to remember who I was and the life I aspired. They come from a time where I used to think how much I had already accomplished. My young mind was impossible to break down, happiness was always present due to the promise of time. I looked to days to come like constellations high above in the night sky. What is there to find out? How long would it take me to get there? How small was I compared to them, how big can I grow?

Verschütteter Wein

Wie viele meiner Gedanken sind nur verschütteter Wein? Versprechungen für eine leere Zukunft, die nur zu Flecken wurden. Sie werden immer da sein, um mich daran zu erinnern, wer ich war und welches Leben ich damals angestrebt habe. Sie kommen aus einer Zeit, in der ich immer daran dachte, wie viel ich bereits erreicht hatte. Mein junger Verstand konnte nicht zusammenbrechen, das Glück war immer durch das Versprechen der Zeit präsent. Ich sah die kommenden Tage wie Sternbilder hoch oben am Nachthimmel.

I’m naive and I’m fine with it.

I’m naive. Very much. I didn’t notice that before, because I could blame it on my age. There it was still justified. Childlike carelessness. “Yes well, she’s still 17, she’s still learning that,” they said at the time. Meanwhile I’m 27 and it hasn’t got any better. Their head shaking. Always the same. And then there’s this slightly suggested smile and this: “Sweet.”

Ich bin naiv und das ist gut so

“Bei dem Wort Liebe fangen meine Augen an zu glühen.”

Ich bin naiv. Sogar sehr. Früher ist das nicht so aufgefallen, da konnte ich das noch auf mein Alter schieben. Da war es noch gerechtfertigt. Kindlicher Leichtsinn halt. „Ja gut, sie ist ja noch 17, sie lernt das schon noch“, haben sie damals gesagt. Mittlerweile bin ich 27 und es ist kein Stück besser geworden. Dieses Kopfschütteln. Immer dasselbe. Und dazu noch dieses leicht angedeutete Lächeln und dieses: „Süß.“ Continue reading “Ich bin naiv und das ist gut so”

Sweet Home or Hell? – Homeoffice

the-5th-141680-unsplash.jpg

I always thought: This is my goal – to work from home. I imagined myself sitting totally relaxed in my apartment, having my lunch break (which I would do very regularly), going to yoga, from which I would come back even more relaxed. The sun would shine (all day) into the room and after my work (which of course would be so easy for me) I would meditate for a while on my balcony. (Now I have served all Berlin hipster clichés). But unfortunately I have to disappoint my former self. I mean that I still serve all clichés has not changed… But I’ve learned a few things about Homeoffice that I am going to tell you in this article.
