Reminiscing About My Days As A Partygirl

I became a partygirl when I was a young teenager. I was probably around 13 when I started partying with my friends and it just got more and more wild from there. You may be shocked by how young I was, but I was always a bit beyond my years and I had lots of friends who were older than me. I grew up in small villages, where there is just not much to do. You just hung out with people and of course the older ones drank alcohol and were into parties and you just went along with it. But before you totally freak out, I had personal boundaries and I never did absolutely terrible things. I was never brought home by the police or had to be taken to the hospital because I drank too much. I didn’t sleep around either or did anything super illegal. Yeah, underage drinking but you know what I mean. I just had fun with people I liked.

When I got a little older, I went everywhere from clubs to festivals or local concerts. Back then, the legal age to enter a club was 16. You were allowed to stay until midnight, unless your parents filled out a form that somebody over 18 was with you and took responsibility. Well, I never really stuck to any of it before I was actually old enough. I always looked a bit older and totally perfected the “oh no, I forgot my ID” tactic. It was just so easy, so I partied and drank a lot during my teenage years. On my 16th birthday, the bouncer from the club I constantly went to actually bought me a beer. He totally new that I was alway too young to actually be let inside but nobody really cared. I didn’t cause any trouble, after all.


My mom had to drive me around all the time and I am very grateful she did, also for trusting me. The worst thing I probably did was dance on counters and tables because it was just so damn fun. Or maybe the hitchhiking, here and there, but never alone and always with phone in hand. Me and one of my friends also loved to get super dolled up and make sure random guys bought us drinks and then, we would walk out on them. We just didn’t have a care in the world. It was also ok to walk home for miles, in the middle of the night, sometimes just us two girls, sometimes as a group. And yes, once I played strip poker with a bunch of my male friends and you can guess that it wasn’t my smartest move. I am forever grateful that I didn’t grow up with smartphones around. But it was just all fun and games and I never once actually felt like being in danger.

Sure, thinking about all of it now, I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone, but when I was young, it just didn’t matter. You don’t overthink, you just do it. Call it reckless, but it’s just a part of growing up and you learn from mistakes. Furthermore, I do feel like it was just very different from today because a lot has changed and the world is a much more dangerous place than it was growing up. I wouldn’t do any of it today. The world is full of so much crime and I definitely don’t want to be the victim of it. I am definitely a lot more careful, today.

My greatest memories are from when I was around 16/17. I had switched schools and ended up getting together a clique of girls that you could just have an incredibly good time with. Some of them are my best friends, until today. We went everywhere, all the time and it was just so much fun. When you’re young, it’s just so easy not to take life too seriously. Basically all you had was school and sometimes, it just wasn’t the priority. Ok, almost never but we had a blast and that’s all we cared about. (We did all graduate though.) Some of us were 18 and were able to drive, so it was just perfect. We never even considered the fact that maybe they wouldn’t let us in somewhere for being too young. It just always worked and when police suddenly showed up, you just hid in a bathroom.

I also enjoyed to throw house parties, whenever there was something to celebrate or when my parents where out of town. Some where pretty crazy and I never told my mom the actual number of people. Sorry mom. And I mean, when people come and go and come and go, who can really count anyway, right? I once missed like half of my party because I had too much tequila and I couldn’t stop hugging our toilet. But hey, that’s just how it goes, sometimes. When I turned 18, I even had my own DJ. He was friend of mine and for once, I didn’t have to put together tons of mixtapes. Man, did I feel cool. I didn’t know anyone else who had their own DJ playing a set in their living room.

In general, I was always the one who had people over, no matter if big or small gatherings. Some of my favorite memories happened in my house. Also, the one where somebody thought it was funny to poor alcohol into our fish tank and killed them. Not such a fun one but something I will never forget.


When I sit together with my friends, we often talk about the good old days and reminisce about all the crazy things we experienced. The millions of parties we went to, all the people we met and also all the moments we’re not so terribly proud of will never be forgotten.

The day we sat on a bus that took us to an electronic music festival and after five minutes on the road, everyone around us started whipping out their drugs. Also, when it was seven in the morning and after already partying all night, we got to see one of our favorite DJ’s play, at the break of dawn. All those times when one of us made out with a totally embarrassing guy and we just laughed our butts off the next day. The mornings we woke up next to each other, still raving about how fun a party was. That moment, when my best friend thought it was fun to poor beer over her head after dying her hair black that day. My 22nd birthday, when we just had the night of our lives, which included me taking a terrible fall, thinking it was hilarious and waking up the next morning with a black and blue leg and still laughing about it. All the alcohol the carpet in my room drank over the course of over ten years. When we thought it was totally cool to attend a rock concert at our school, dressed like the Plastics, and got a lot of hate for it. When I graduated from school and partied for two weeks straight. I could write books about all the craziness we experienced and thinking about every single one of those moments makes me incredibly happy.

Sometimes, I wish I would’ve taken this madness to university, but once I was there, I focused on more important things. I was more the anti-social student who was only focused on studying and work. I hardly visited any party or joined any campus action. I think it’s because I started going out at such a young age, I was just over it. I had already seen it all. For me, going to university didn’t mean sudden freedom, away from school and parents, for me it meant growing up.

Now I’m 28 and pretty much all of my friends are around 30 and those party days are completely gone. Nobody has the time and energy anymore to party like a rockstar. Sometimes it makes me sad that nobody even tries to just go crazy again. You should see their reaction when I bring up a party. And even if I can get them out of the house, it’s just not the same. Everybody is too responsible now to just get wasted and let go. And trust me, I know that I’m not 16 anymore but sometimes, I would just like to pretend. But unless I can get everyone to stop thinking about how annoying they find the people, the music, the whole party and just enjoy the moment with their friends, it’s probably never going to happen again. I have to accept that we’ve grown out of it. The fact that almost everyone but me has been in a relationship for years, has a job and plans things like building houses and having babies, doesn’t really help, either. The thing is, I couldn’t imagine going through all the craziness again, either, but I just think that once in a while, it may actually be fun.

But I still love my girls and the memories will always stay very close to my heart. And a little bar-dancing, boy-kissing, vodka-drinking partygirl will always be a part of me, and I wouldn’t want to miss it for the world.

Photography: Los Angeles

It’s actually been a while since I’ve visited Los Angeles but I thought, I would post some pictures from my two visits. (Yeah, yeah, and I was also too uninspired to actually write up a post.) I admit that it’s definitely not my favorite city in the world, which is a pretty unpopular opinion, but I honestly think it’s completely overrated and just hyped because of all the celebs and the usually fantastic weather. Sure, there are some fun places but I’ve just seen so many nicer cities. Still, almost every place has great things to see and I did have a good time. I love the Santa Monica Pier because I’m a total sucker for that kind of fun and visiting the original Charmed house was super cool. My 90s girl heart jumped up and down.

These are definitely not my best photos but I want to share them, anyway. We didn’t always have the best weather and both trips were a little rushed. I hardly had time to really explore everything and get a good look, but that’s just how it is, sometimes. If you’ve been to LA, let me know what you enjoyed the most.

My Top 50+ Pet Peeves

Yes, I am one of these people who can get worked up over every little annoying thing. I always try my hardest to ignore them and not to say something or freak out but that doesn’t always work so well. It’s crazy how many things actually annoy you when you think about it. I’m pretty sure I could put together another list like this, but I don’t want to be “one of these people” too much. ( I totally am though. :D ) I would love to hear some of your pet-peeves.

15 Times I Feel Single AF

I’ve been single for probably 1938259876982 days (too many to even count) and most of the time, I’m completely fine with it. At some point, I just decided that being alone for a while works better for me and trust me, I’m really good at it. But there are always some moments, some annoying situations, where I wouldn’t mind having someone by my side to share it with or to lean on. Sure, I have family and friends but it’s just not the same. Currently, I’m at a point where I’m kinda open to meeting someone but I’m sure that I need a miracle for that to happen. I’m super picky, and difficult, and probably have been single for waaaayyy too long. Anyway, here is a list with moments where it would be nice to have someone by my side.

So single it hurts

01. On Christmas
Because it’s the most wonderful time of the year and I find snow and cozy nights romantic, even though I don’t care too much about romantic stuff. And I would totally make a bomb advent calendar but not everyone deserves one. And yeah, I would get another present. Haha.

02. On New Years
On this day, I always tend do be by myself and just hide out in bed. It started when I just seemed to have one bad year after another and I just stuck to it. The fact that most of my friends always spend this day with their significant other doesn’t help either. So usually, I do movies and junk food and just get it over with.

03. On Valentine’s day
I don’t think I need to explain this to you. The good thing is that it’s one day after my birthday, so it’s not that bad.

04. When I get invited to wedding, parties etc. and everyone is bringing a +1 but me
This is me every single time. As soon as invites are out, people are like “can I bring someone?” and I’m just sitting here feeling super single. You know those wedding photos with the frame and all? I need to stand in it alone. FUN! And not to forget, the constant talk about babies and building houses etc. And all I can contribute is: Yeah, I’m single, currently unemployed and I’m married to my bed and Netflix.

05. When there’s an engagement, wedding or birth on my Facebook timeline, EVERYDAY
No, I don’t want to get engaged, or married, or have a child, but it’s still super annoying and reminds me of the fact that even if I wanted any of it, it’s not happening.

06. When I never have someone to go on holiday with
This really annoys me. Yeah sure, I could travel by myself but sometimes, I’m just not feeling it. And yeah, I have friends, although most of them do this with their partner, but travelling can’t be done with everyone.

07. On rainy, lazy Sunday’s when I just feel like curling up in bed with someone
Sometimes, it would just be nice.

08. Everytime people ask me about my love life
Why do people even do that??? Like seriously, it’s none of your goddamn business. And if we were actual friends, you’d probably know if there was someone or not. I would never just walk up to people and ask them that.

09. Everytime they do that half-laughing cause they know I’m single AF
So this usually happens when friends, who I haven’t seen or talked to in a while, ask me the same damn thing, but kinda don’t expect me to have an answer, anyway. Like sorry, I don’t see why it’s funny and I don’t need that pity look because unlike most of you guys, I rock being single.

10. When I cook and have food for days
Sure, it’s nice not to have to cook the next day but it would also be nice to share a meal, once in a while.

11. When nobody is there to take a cute picture of me
Sometimes, an awkwardly angled selfie just doesn’t do it. And when I’m somewhere looking super cute, I need my Insta followers to see that. You’ll probably find a nice stranger to take one but we all know that what we need, is someone who takes at least 50 pictures and endures all your commands. You better get it right, boo.

12. When I had a really, really bad day
Because sometimes, family and friends just don’t do it. You want someone to wrap their arms around you and make you feel safe. The next day, you’ll be all boss-lady again.

13. When I have amazing news
Because hello? I want to share it with the whole world, of course. And it would be nice for the first phone call not to always be my mom.

14. When you’re lying, cheating and annoying exes have super happy relationships
First things first, I wouldn’t take back any of them, even for a million bucks. But sometimes, I just think that those douchebags don’t deserve to be happy because I only know them at their worst. Yes, some hard feeling will always come through, here and there. (On a side note: The moment you’re told that one of them has been treated the same way he treated you, you really have to fight the urge no to dance all around your room. Hoorayyy for karma.)

15. On days when the weather is nice
People always give me crap for not leaving the house. What the actual hell am I supposed to do out there? I live in a village with NOTHING to do and no, I’m not going for a walk by myself. I don’t even have a dog. And well, if you people actually had more time for your friends, I wouldn’t sit around the house so often. HA!

Why Donald Trump’s Misogyny Doesn’t Shock Me

Donald Trump Iowa Source: (REUTERS/Scott Morgan)

I could start by telling you how much I detest Donald Trump. I could describe him with every swear word that comes to my mind. I could go on and on about why I feel sorry for this orange-faced old man, but so much has been said and written about him, so I won’t do it. And I couldn’t be more on point than Robert De Niro anyway, so watch his video instead.

Everytime Donald Trump talks or tweets, some misogynist crap leaves his mouth and people are left in utter shock. You’ll see it all over the news and people discuss it, over and over again, because it’s sure isn’t ok. It seems like he has no respect for anyone but himself, and boy does he love to target women. But I don’t understand why everyone is so shocked by any of it because let’s be honest, this happens all over the world, every single day. The only reason why people are completely freaking out in this particular case, is because a person, who is so openly vocal about his inhuman opinions, can actually become president of the United States.

Don’t get me wrong, it is important that we talk about this man and the dangers he entails, but if you think about it further, it should not come as big surprise to you that a man thinks so low of women. Trump’s behavior is what women have to deal with in their everyday-life. There are days when I feel like I’m living in the middle-ages because it sure does not feel like 21st-century thinking. The fact that so many people vote for a misogynist, racist and totally insane person like Trump shows this, more than ever. In many ways, our world is developing backwards. Unfortunately, the US wouldn’t be the first country for this to happen to, and it’s terrifying.

His behavior that we see, over and over again, doesn’t shock me because it happens everywhere around me. No, not all men are like this and I thank you from the bottom of my heart, if you support equality for every human being on this planet, no matter what gender, race or color. But the sad reality is that there are so many people out there who don’t care for equality. The majority being men. Women are worth a lot less than they are. It has always been the case and it is an ongoing problem. Yes, a lot has changed and that is a good thing but it simply isn’t enough. At times, it seems like no matter what we do, it’s wrong anyway. Women can make the same mistakes as men, do the same job as men but still get judged for it, on a whole nother level. And even if you do a fantastic job, you will find someone judging you for what you’re wearing, for having wrinkles, for not smiling enough. Because God forbid, how can a woman not smile 24/7? Monster!

We’ve probably all seen and heard the footage that has just been released. Donald Trump and Billy Bush joking about sexual assault toward women and how it’s totally ok, especially when you’re famous. A president who glorifies rape culture is just what the world needs. This whole conversation was of course downplayed by calling it simple “locker-room banter.” Like this is just the most normal way to talk about other human beings.

The thing is that unfortunately, it’s partly true. I’m not saying that all guys talk about sexually assaulting and harassing girls, although I wouldn’t completely rule it out. Trump, surprise, surprise, gives a very extreme example of “locker-room banter,” but don’t think this doesn’t happen anywhere else. Often, it may be big talk to impress some buddies, but for whatever reason this talk happens, it’s just wrong.

I remember listening to some guys at school grading us girls by looks and thinking about who they would have sex with. One of the girls had a banging body but would need to cover her head with a paper bag cause she ain’t pretty enough. People can argue all they want that this is how boys talk and not men, but you know that it’s happening and I’m simply not shocked by this, at all.

Even when this banter doesn’t include glamorizing sexual assault, what is still left, is the never ending judgement. You can’t imagine how many times I had to sit there, listening to my grandpa judge a women’s work by how she looks. If she’s not up to his standard, she pretty much never knows what she’s doing. It is painful to listen to and makes me sick to the stomach, but no matter what I say, I can’t change it. Believe me, I tried. But there are so many men like this out there, young and old, who think this way. Who don’t want to see equality, who only want to control us. We’re supposed to be pretty, happy housewives – simply born to please men.

And if we dare to want more for ourselves? It’s a tricky path. We have to justify wanting a job, wanting power, wanting everything that men can have. But what about kids, a family? Because that is the only reasonable thing a woman should want. We have to think about every move we make. If we go to a job interview and show just slightly too much cleavage, men could think that we’re easy targets and that we want to cover for the fact that we’re not as good as they are. If we’re not super attractive, which always lies in the eye of the beholder, we better have qualifications beyond compare. We have to work ten times harder than every man to have people listen to us and still, there will be the one guy who can’t resist to interrupt and try to walk all over you.

When you’re too hard, you’re a bitch. If you’re too sweet, you’re an easy target. If you defend yourself for something, it’s wrong. When you don’t defend yourself, it’s your own fault. I could go on and on like this but I’m sure that every woman knows exactly what I mean.

Therefore, whenever Donald Trump talks badly about women, know that unfortunately, he is only one in a million guys to do that. Don’t be shocked, because it’s reality. Instead, try to prevent someone like this from gaining power. Take your anger, your hurt feelings, your worries and do whatever you can to keep another con artist from ruling a country. Also let nobody else treat you that way, no matter if famous or not. And if for some reason you still feel like supporting Donald Trump, know what kind of signal you send out to the world, your friends, your children, your family, if you vote for this misogynist, racist, inhuman person.

Oh, and…

10 Life Lessons From Mean Girls

Happy October 3rd, aka MEAN GIRLS Day!

A little while ago, I wrote a guest post for the lovely Gwennan and it was the first time I ever did that. It was super fun and I was really happy that she wanted me to write for her blog, since I really like it and she’s a lovely human being.

I’m very much into pop culture and Mean Girls is just an absolute classic. So here are 10 life lessons from Mean Girls and I hope you enjoy it and learn something.

This post was originally posted on 20 Something Meltdown.

Mean Girls GIF

What you probably don’t know about me, I was the Regina George of our school. I wasn’t as mean as her but I could be, if I wanted to. My friends and me were called Plastics, even though we never gave ourselves that title. We were just different and people were always super quick to judge us for being girly girls. So when I share these life lessons with you, know that I’m also talking from my own experience. And just for the record, I owned pretty much any piece of clothing the Plastics wear in the movie and yes, I went to school like that. Don’t judge me!

1. Don’t give a damn about other people’s opinion
I feel like this movie demonstrates very well what happens if you pay too much attention to what other people think about you. The only thing that matters is that you’re comfortable with who you are and what you do and don’t let anyone ever tell you that you’re not good enough. If you want to wear short skirts, do it. If you love the color pink, embrace it. If you want to perform the Jingle Bell Rock at your school talent show, absolutely go for it. I’ve danced on stages performing routines to songs like Lady Marmelade or Dirrrty, matching outfits and all, and you know what? I never cared about what one single person thought about it. It was just a lot of fun.

2. Cherish your friendships
It doesn’t matter if people love or hate you, as long as you have a handful of good friends that will always have your back. I think it’s fab how Janis and Damian take Cady into their little circle because it’s never fun or easy being the new kid. They way she ends up treating them though is really not cool. Unfortunately, these things happen, especially when you’re a teenager and all you want to be is popular, but nothing like that is worth losing honest friendships. Some people will come and go but make sure to figure out who is worth staying with and don’t ever take them for granted.

3. A burnbook works wonders
So yeah, this book may be the meanest thing you’ve seen in teenage movies but I know for a fact that it definitely helps to blow off steam. It’s not cool to hold it against everyone, though. If you’re really upset and you feel like saying all the mean things you can think of to somebody, don’t do it because chances are that you’ll really regret it. And it doesn’t make you any cooler to go around telling people how much you hate them. Right it down, make sure you get it all out of your system and then move on. And of course, make sure to hide it someplace safe, since you don’t want cops to be sent to your teachers house.

4. Love your parents, even when they’re embarrassing
OMG, Amy Poehler as Regina’s mom is just brilliant. I’m sure we’ve all rolled our eyes at something our parents said or did but you know what, that’s just how parents are. It’s their job to embarrass us and trust me when I tell you that you won’t die from it. Sometimes, it’s just their way of trying to make us laugh, to cheer us up or to just let loose because they are allowed to. Don’t hold it against them, it’s often a sign of love. If you’re a parent and you don’t embarrass your child, you’re doing something wrong.

5. Don’t change who you are to make other’s like you
It kills me to see how Cady tries to make Aaron like her by pretending she is bad at math. Honestly, I’ve been there and thinking about it now makes me want to punch myself. Depending on who you’re talking to, you feel like you have to be someone else, in order for them to like you but that’s just plain wrong. Only surround yourself with people who like you for you. Everyone else is so not worth it. And if a guy is intimidated by your skills, your degree, or whatever else there is, he better grow some balls or you should just send him to hell.

6. Embrace jealousy
People who are jealous of you either try to make your life miserable or try to copy you. Sometimes, it’s a mix of both. I know that it can get super annoying and often, you don’t even understand what is happening. It usually takes a while before you realize why people do what they do. When I was a teenager and hated by the world, (I’m not even kidding) I never understood why people have such strong feelings towards me, but when years later, they started liking and doing things they used to criticize me for, I was kinda mad but also flattered. I mean, everyone hates Regina George but they still copy her boob-cut-out shirt. Some people just need some time to actually build up the courage to be who and what they want to be. Some people just need someone they admire to copy and even though it can be super annoying, take it as a compliment. Lot’s of people struggle with finding their own personality, so just accept it. And I know one thing for sure, there is nothing more that people are jealous of, than of people who just don’t give a damn about their bad reputation.

7. If there’s a costume party, go all out
There is actually a lot of truth in the statement that Halloween is an excuse for girls to dress in underwear. Basically any costume party, for that matter. You definitely get less judged for dressing up cute and sexy, which is wrong in so many ways, but it’s just the way it is. I actually admire Cady for dressing like a zombie bride (or ex-wife as she calls it) because not a lot of girls do that, me included. I mean, I dress up whenever I feel like it and have done so, all my life, but an extra sexy Halloween outfit is my thing, too. I mean come one, who doesn’t have a pair of bunny or cat ears hidden somewhere in their closet?!

8. Even the popular kids have problems
With popular people it’s like this. They try to create a perfect world for everyone to see and admire but secretly, they have the same problems and insecurities as everyone else. They might laugh about almost flunking a class, while they desperately ask for a tutor to come to their house and rescue them. They hide behind clothes and make-up but only see a million flaws, when they look into their bedroom mirror. They pretend like they don’t have a care in the world for everyone hating on them, but when nobody sees them, they break down and cry. Everything is not always as it seems and I know that because I was that kid. Everyone has feelings, after all.

9. It’s the small things that keep relationships going
This goes for relationships of any kind. It’s never about grand gestures but about little things that remind someone of being loved. It honestly breaks my heart a little to see how disappointed Gretchen is, when she doesn’t get a candy cane. Small things like these can have such a huge impact on people, so always bear that in mind.

10. Life will always be a little like high school
I would love to tell you something else but it’s the truth. No matter where you are or what you do, there will always be the popular and the less popular people. There will always be someone who everyone talks about and some people just never grow up and still talk trash about you, like they did back in highschool. You probably see it at your workplace, you see it in the blogging community, you probably even see it when you have your own children and you take them to school and realize that you are or are not one of the popular parents. It’s just how the world works. There will always be cliques and judgmental people, fights and problems. The only thing you can do is not let it affect you. Be the person you want to be, surround yourself with good people and the rest couldn’t bother you any less.
