How to eat vegan

So, today is Ash Wednesday, the 1st of March and the start of my vegan lent. I thought I might start things off by telling you what I’m (not) going to eat over the course of the next few weeks, which reasons speak for choosing a vegan diet and how I intend to do it…

February Check-In

This is a short update on both my resolutions and my life this month. February was another crazy ride. I had to work really hard this month as the weeks were full with staff meetings, parent-teacher-evenings, trainings and all the usual stuff like preparing lessons and grading exams. Plus my free time was packed with…

My vegan lent. (Fastenzeit vegan)

Before I tell you about my plans for Lent, let me tell you one thing (or rather three): I’m not a religious person, I’m not good at abstinence and I’ve never really done the whole fasting thing between Ash Wednesday and Easter. However, I’ve been toying with the idea of going vegan (I’ve already been a…

The first trip of the year (#take12trips)

I love the #take12trips challenge by Clare form Need Another Holiday. I took it last year and it was great fun to plan and go on all the trips. So, naturally, I wanted to do it again in 2017. The year started with a month of meeting up with friends and family, going to an…

January Check-In

This is a short update on both my resolutions and my life this month. January was quite exciting, actually. It started with the Christmas holidays, continued with a week of sickness and then headed straight into two weeks of madness: school is crazy in January (reports are always due at the end of the month)…

Zwangsauszeit.

Vor Weihnachten begann es. Eines Freitags kam ich heim und fühlte mich irgendwie mies. Es dauerte noch zwei/drei Tage, dann kam der Rotz und als ich dienstags aus der Schule heimkam war ich das erste Mal nach 8 Stunden unterrichten heiser. Mittwoch, Donnerstag und Freitag schleppte ich mich in die Schule – es standen ja…

2017.

The beginning of a new year is the time for new (and also not so new) resolutions. Resolutions are kind of my thing, because I love planning and organising stuff. Planning is often more exciting for me than actually doing the things. So yeah, I’m a resolution person – I even do them during the…

What a year.

2016 might be the most hated year of all times. At least that is what the internet seems to be trying to tell me at the moment. And I get it, with all the famous people dying, the war in Syria reaching new highs lows almost on a weekly basis, the climate being out of…

A start.

So. Here I am. Yet again. Back in the blogging sphere of the world wide web. But this time without any high expectations, no plans, no unachievable goals. Some years ago I had my own little space – named after my first name. I wrote about this and that and things were good. Until I…
