October Check-In

This is a short update on both my resolutions and my life this month. October was busy. Our half term break started on Saturday, but school was quite a bit crazy until Friday – so that’s that. Moreover, I was away on 3 of 5 weekends, which might have been a bit ambitious given the…

September Check-In

This is a short update on both my resolutions and my life this month. September was busy, hectic, full of things I wanted to do and didn’t have enough time for and things I didn’t want to do and had to make too much time for. I’m typing this feeling like the most tired person…

August Check-In

This is a short update on both my resolutions and my life this month. August was great. I travelled quite a bit, relaxed even a bit more, read a lot and took the time to think. This might sound a bit weird at first, but during the school year thinking about life/life choices/the future etc….

7 days in Iceland

It seems like our trip to Iceland was already ages ago – I’ve just been putting off writing this post for far too long. It’s high time I’ve told you about it! I had wanted to go to Iceland for so long, I can’t even tell when it all started. It seems like Iceland is…

July Check-In

This is a short update on both my resolutions and my life this month. Wait, it’s the end of July already?! Well, that was… unexpected! Time really flies – and this is especially true in these summer months, even more so in the last month before school breaks. So many things going on all at…

June Check-In

This is a short update on both my resolutions and my life this month. June was great. It started with a week in Iceland (where I fell in love with this beautiful beautiful country) followed by one more week of holidays which I spent with quite a bit of work but also with quite a…

Für alle.

Morgen wird im Bundestag also über die Ehe für alle abgestimmt. Ganz plötzlich steht das Thema auf der Agenda. Weil die Kanzlerin auf einmal findet, dass das ja eine Gewissensentscheidung sei. Da kann man das ja schon mal machen. Dass Abgeordnete nach Artikel 38 GG grundsätzlich nur ihrem Gewissen verpflichtet sind, sei an dieser Stelle…

May Check-In

This is a short update on both my resolutions and my life this month. May was busy, but nice. We had two additional days off school (Labour Day and Ascension Day), but it was still a bit much. The weekends were “fully booked” and with two weeks of holidays ahead I’m looking forward to slowing…

#ihaveembraced

Last night I went to see Embrace, a film on the body image of women. The film created by Taryn Brumfitt could not have a stronger message. Taryn has become famous for posting a slightly different “before and after” picture on Facebook. While she received lots and lots of overwhelming, positive feedback, some people also…

April Check-In

This is a short update on both my resolutions and my life this month. I might say that April was another crazy ride but I think I finally have found out why my life seems so crazy right now. Because it is. Thanks to my hyperactive thyroid, my body has been under constant stress for the…

3 nights in Barcelona

We (that is Mr Spaetzle and myself) recently spent three nights in Barcelona. For anyone who might be interested and for myself to remember these days, here’s a little overview over our trip and stay. How to get to Barcelona and how to get around in Barcelona We took a plane to Barcelona airport. It’s…

Stress.

Stress ist nicht nur eine Volkskrankheit. Er ist mein ständiger Begleiter. Ist ja irgendwie auch gerade in Mode. Everybody’s so so busy und so. Aber es ist halt nicht immer nur das “viel zu tun haben”… Ich fühle mich zwar seit Beginn des Referendariats eigentlich nicht so großartig, hatte bis zu den Prüfungen öfter mal…
