When I Match On Tinder

To be honest, I thought I was through with Tinder, a little while ago. I wasn’t even considering actually meeting with people and just laughed my butt off swiping from face to face. But now that I pretty much have my life a lot more in order than last year, I thought I’ll just give it another shot. The thing is, I don’t even know what I want, since I’m not really a hook-up kind of girl but I also have major relationship issues so yeah, why the hell do I even bother? Because I decided to let life surprise me. Since I never really happen to meet people in real life, why the hell not reinstall the app?! And yes, I know there are a lot more serious apps to use but I don’t know. I’m not the person who wants to get matched with someone based on answers to questions like sunrise or sunset? Or create a major dating profile or whatever else you have to do on all these other options. I have commitment issues so I’ll just start with Tinder. And if they just want to hook up and I don’t, I can always just say goodbye.

So anyway, once in a while it happens that I match with someone. I guess the problem is that from 300 guys, I swipe right on like five of them. Yes, that’s the superficial, self-sabotaging moron I can be. But whatever. I want to like someone’s face and I don’t see that being a bad thing. That doesn’t mean that a pretty face is all that matters. So yeah, sometimes matches happen and this is just a little insight into my crazy mind. I know, I’m weird but that’s ok.

Boys Lie

*swipes right on like five out of 300 guys*

Ha, another match.

Mmmm, which of these matches do I actually pay attention to?

I should probably just delete them all.

No, you wanted to stop being a coward.

Not all men are terrible idiots. Right? RIIIIGHT???

Ok, here we go.

*picks the one who seems like he likes to travel but who didn’t overdo it with his choice of pics*

Do I text him?

Why isn’t he texting me?

I’m a grown-ass woman, I can text him.

What do I write?

Shit, this is so hard.

Ok, think, think, think…

Maybe just a hello?

Emoji, or no emoji, that is the question.

What the hell, the worst that can happen is him ignoring me.

I’ve been perfectly single for years, I don’t need anyone.

Ok, calm down and just do it.

MESSAGE SENT!

Oh God, oh God, oh God.

Damn, I wish I was more chill.

He texted back, ladies and gentlemen, he texted back.

I’m such a pro at this.

And my pictures look pretty good.

He likeeees me.

Calm down, moron. Remember about not actually caring?

This is not going bad.

Travels – always a good topic.

But how long will it last until he get’s all weird and only wants sex?

Does he only want sex?

How do I find out if he only wants sex?

No, I can’t just ask him.

What if he’s actually nice?

Why do I even bother, I’ll probably be bored by tomorrow, anyway.

Wow, a few hours later and I’m still not bored.

How is this even possible?

Let me go back through his pictures and see if I’m actually into him.

Stop being a superficial bitch and give him a chance.

Man, texting with this app is annoying.

Do I ask if we can exchange numbers?

I hate giving out my number.

He seems nice, though.

I gave him my number.

Dude, why aren’t you texting me like IMMEDIATELY???

*has minor panic attack*

Ah, here we go.

Oh fantastic, he wants pictures.

Why do guys always ask for pictures?

You ain’t getting nudes, hun.

Ok, he’s sending some, as well. Fully clothed from some travel adventures. Acceptable.

*Looks for the prettiest pictures her phone has to offer*

Still no major warning signs.

Should I check his spelling? Punctuation? Grammar?

STOP SABOTAGING IT EVERY SINGLE TIME!!!

Would I want to go out with him?

Wow, I can actually see myself going out with him.

How can we have so much in common?

Is this even possible?

Nobody who knows me is gonna believe this.

I need to stalk him online to find something I can’t live with.

How can I not find anything?

*looks through his pictures for the millionth time*

He’s definitely not fully my type.

I still kinda like him.

*hears Rihanna’s lyrics in her head*

♪ On the first page of our story
The future seemed so bright
Then this thing turned out so evil
I don’t know why I’m still surprised ♪

SHUT UP! SHUT UP! SHUT UP!

I have to stop doing this.

I mean, it’s not like I’m in love or anything.

For once just CHILL.

Yes, chill. I can do that.

29 Things I Learned In 29 Years

What can I say, today is my birthday and I turned 29. So happy birthday to me! In the past, I’ve read a few of these posts from other bloggers and thought I’ll write one, as well. I didn’t want to wait until I turn 30 because I’m still debating if I’ll just stay 29 for next five years or not. Since my 20s haven’t exactly been super great, maybe 30 won’t be so bad but I still have one year to go and I’m curious to see what it has in store for me. Of course over the years, I’ve learned a lot about life and about myself and some of the things I want to share with you.

flowers

01. I don’t need a man to be happy. If it goes well, it’s just a bonus.
02. Never be too sure about the things you think you want.
03. Sleep is so much more important than parties.
04. Losing friends will always hurt but it get’s easier to let go.

09. I can actually live pretty good without 259 full closets.

13. Cake is always a good idea.

Yes, I kinda do! – I want the wedding but not the marriage

Yes, I know that the title may seem a bit weird but that is exactly how it is. I absolutely love weddings but just the thought of getting married frightens me and I never saw myself being a wife. Last weekend, I took part in a fashion show for bridal and evening gowns, which I’ve been doing since 2009, so I felt like finally writing this post. I don’t know how many dresses I’ve worn in the last eight years, but there were definitely a lot and what can I say, I love it every single time. There is something so special about wearing a wedding dress, even if you’re not getting married. You always feel like a gorgeous princess and who doesn’t want that?!

Wedding dress

So today I want to share my thoughts and feelings about weddings and marriage. I never felt like I want to get married and even if so, the lack of men in my life would make it a little hard to tie the knot. Let’s be honest, me and relationships just don’t really work. Maybe I’ll give it another try in my 30s. Relationships are just a really hard thing and since I can’t even find someone that I’m willing to spend time with for a while, how the hell am I supposed to find someone to spend the rest of my life with? If I ever decide to give people heart attacks though, I’ll just get married. But I really don’t feel the need to. It still surprises a lot of people when I, a woman, in all seriousness declare that I don’t want to get married. It’s the 21st century so get a life. I don’t really see a point except for saving some money on taxes. However, this doesn’t mean that I don’t love when people get married. I support each and every single one who really wants it, from the bottom of their heart and does it for the right reasons.

I’m actually waiting for my friends to finally say yes but for some reason, they’re all taking their sweet time. They’re having children and building houses, but weddings are no where in sight. Dear friends, please stop doing this to me because I love weddings and I want to be at yours. I will probably also plan your wedding, since I love organizing and bossing people around, I will sing at your wedding, I will give a speech and everything else there is to do because that’s the person I am at weddings. The girl without the plus one, standing alone in those picture frame photos, but trying her hardest to make it the best day of your life. And I also have a ton of ideas for my friends because I know them very well.

Anyway, I would lie if I said that I never thought about how my wedding would be. As a matter of fact, I know exactly how it would be and my soon-to-be husband and I would have to be damn rich to afford it. Even though I don’t want to get married, I do want to believe that if you do, it’s forever. Sure, the statistics show that that’s definitely not the case but deep down, I am a romantic and I hope for everyone to only tie the knot once and live happily ever after. Therefore, if I would get married, I would go all out and beyond. I would be the craziest bridezilla ever and I would definitely warn my partner about this before saying yes. And I’m not talking about fighting over the color of my flowers with my mother in law. I’m talking bridezilla style where the groom won’t even be allowed to pick his own suit. I mean seriously, have you seen what’s on the market? Sure, everyone has a different taste and that’s completely ok, but hell no would he be allowed to choose some funky outfit. And he will also not be allowed to perform some dance routine with some of his half-drunken buddies. I just don’t like it.

Weddings dress

Ever since I was 16, I knew where I would want to get married if I ever went for it. I don’t even know if you can rent the place but I’m sure with the right amount of money, anything is possible. There would definitely be pink in my wedding because otherwise, it wouldn’t be mine. I’m not sure what kind of dress I would want because I’ve worn so many different ones that I just don’t know it, anymore. I’m usually not a big fan of simple dresses, or anything with a neckholder or straps. But the thing with wedding dresses is, you just have to put one on and feel if it’s the one, just like in all those TV shows. I would probably take some people with me but if anyone would even dare to get all bossy and tell me what kind of dress I should wear, they would have to leave. Opinions are good but ultimatums or demands or anything like that are just a no-go. I always feel so sorry for those girls with low self-esteem who don’t have the guts to stand up to their families and friends and tell them what kind of dress they want. Seriously people, if someone close to you gets married, remember that it’s not about you and your taste, so be helpful and supportive.

The thing is, my wedding would probably be very traditional. Very over the top but nothing like dancing toward the altar or any other crazy routines. Just a sweet and romantic slow dance. Since my location includes a pond and a beautiful staircase made of stone, there would be lots of lights and flowers involved. As much as I love churches, I don’t want to get married in one, since I’m not religous and it wouldn’t feel right. I would have many photographers around to cath every moment and my hand would be on top when it comes to cutting the cake. Trust me, I totally got most of my wedding all in my head. And for anything I’m not sure about, there is always a Pinterest board. It’s actually a shame that I’ve never felt the urge to go for it but even though I’m pretty sure that it won’t happen, unless I get very drunk in Vegas, you never know what the future holds.

I admit, it sounds a little crazy to think about my wedding so much, when I actually don’t want to get married. I would really love to have this wedding though because I’m sure it would be epic, but as long as it’s not possible to marry myself or my bed, I guess it may just never happen.

Why I Want To Be A Journalist

journalismWhen you’re a child, you have all kinds of ideas of what you want to be when you grow up. I definitely said I wanted to be a vet because my mom thought of becoming one when she was younger. When I was a teenager, I started thinking about more creative jobs. In my graduation yearbook, it actually wrote that I want to study interior design or photography. Well, that didn’t quite work out. I’m one of these people who are interested in so many things and it has always been hard for me to choose something. In general, I just don’t like being tied to something and the thought of doing the same thing for the rest of my life truly scares me. Of course, choosing a job doesn’t mean that you have to stay with it forever, but in terms of studying and job training, you do have to choose a direction, at some point.

I ended up studying American Studies, something hardly anyone ever understood. I can’t tell you how many times I had to explain to people what exactly I’m doing and what I can do with my degree. At some point, I answered with: I want to be a journalist. The more I thought about it, the more I knew that it’s the only thing I could imagine doing for the rest of my life. I’ve always loved writing and photography so much, so it’s pretty much the only thing that makes sense. And since I hardly know a journalist who actually studied journalism, I was good with my field of study. One of them once told me that you can always learn techniques and computer programs, but you need to have something you’re passionate about to produce content. Also, I think that nobody can really teach you talent. Either you’re good writer or you’re not.

The problem with journalism is that lots and lots of people want to work in the media industry. Unless you know people in higher positions, it is super hard to get in. I know that because I’ve been unemployed for over a year, despite having done everything required for a position as a journalist. In Germany, you need A-levels, preferably a Master’s degree, job experience, language skills, photography skills and a whole lot of other things which apparently are super important for the job. I pretty much fulfilled every single one of them and still didn’t get a job. It’s the most frustrating thing I ever had to go through. I started doubting myself so many times. I wasn’t sure if it was the right decision and thought about doing something else. The problem was that I don’t really have the qualifications for anything else, and I couldn’t see myself doing anything other that write. So I continued trying.

This year, I finally started my first real job in journalism. It’s a trainee position to officially become an editor. It’s actually nonsense, since you pretty much do the same work as anyone else except that you get paid less, but for most positions in Germany, you need this official training. It’s just the way it goes and I’m glad that I’m finally working toward my future goals. And trust me, I have many plans for the future.

There are lots of reasons why I decided to become a journalist. It took me a while to figure out what kind of genre I want to work in, but after a few internships, I figured out which direction is right for me. I want to do serious journalism because for me, it’s important to write about important and real things. I want to meet people and tell their stories. I want to do something that matters. This realization took a while because for some reason, I always thought I wasn’t serious enough and that I’m better off writing gossip or girls-stuff. If someone would’ve told me a few years ago that I would someday prefer writing about politics over celebrities or whatever else I was once interested in, I would’ve never believed it. Well, screw all of those thoughts because I am totally interested in serious topics, I always have an opinion and I’m never afraid to share it. So that’s what I’m doing: working toward serious journalism. And all the other things, I can always cover through blogging.

So why do I want to be a journalist, work in a super tough field with lots of competition, crazy hours and shitty payment? Because I can’t imagine myself doing anything else. I need to be creative and writing means everything to me and I can do photography, as well. I want to meet all kinds of different people and the job is versatile which is good because I’m interested in so many different things and get bored very easily. It makes me so proud when I see my work in a newspaper and I think the whole media machine is just very important. And what is most important: so far, this job always let me be myself. No matter where I worked, I was able to just wear my clothes, I never had any problems with my tattoos and my bubbly and open-minded personality actually works pretty well. And nobody ever judged me for always using a pink highlighter or having a planner with a Disney princess on it. Because the thing is, it’s the skills that should matter and nothing else. And not to forget, I can listen to music while working, which totally brings me into my zone.

Journalism makes me happy and I have so many plans for the future and where I want to go. I’m actually excited because there are so many opportunities. And since I already know how damn hard it is to get in, that a rocky road can’t shock me, anymore.

Goodbye January 2017

Goodbye January,

wow, the first month is already over and for me, it was one hell of a roller coaster ride. As some of you may know, I started a new job and what can I say, I didn’t really have a good start. I was really sick and basically left on my first day to go see a doctor, after only an hour. In total, I was on sick leave for almost two weeks and boy did I feel sorry for myself. I never get sick like this and it was no fun at all. Imagine starting a new job and being sick from the get go. I’m pretty sure that I won’t be employee of the month.

Aside from being sick, the thought of going from being unemployed for more than a year to full-time was hard to digest, as well. Sure, it was about time for me to move forward but it was so hard for me to get my head around it. Even when you’re not happy, you just get used to a certain situation and I was used to simply doing nothing. I had so much time to myself and now, it’s the exact opposite. I drove myself crazy and thought I couldn’t do it but I had to push through and now, I’m good.

I was blessed to work with some awesome people and those girls are just fabulous. Not once did someone give me a weird vibe for starting out being sick. They are super helpful and understanding and we get along, just great. I’m actually sad that sometime in the future, I will change locations because it totally makes more sense for me in terms of distance and region, but I will definitely miss most of my current co-workers. I was also able to catch up pretty fast and already wrote my first huge article for the paper and I’m really proud of it. In case you don’t know what the hell I’m even doing, I’m working in journalism and the first story for a new job is always special to me. People at work really liked it and it meant a lot to me.

So, my January included being super sick, starting a new job and not to forget, having grandma live with us for two weeks for health reasons. I love my family and all but that didn’t make adjusting to the new situation much easier. But the month is over and I’m looking forward to February, aka my birthday month. It’s supposed to get a little warmer as well and I’m so ready for spring, although I doubt that winter is over. For my taste, we definitely had enough snow but knowing from the past, it probably wasn’t the last of it.

I really hope that this month, I will fully adjust to everything and find a new rhythm. Getting up at 6 am will never be my thing though. And 10+ hour-days will always be exhausting, but I knew what I was getting myself into. I just have to find a way to get a few things done during the week, like blogging, tweeting, catching up with people etc. but currently, I can’t do more than get up, work, eat, sleep. Welcome to adult life.

Tons of love,
Hailey Cartoon Me

Female TV Characters That Stuck With Me

I’ve always been pretty addicted to watching TV and have binge-watched countless shows, over the years. Currently, I have like 15 on my list which sure sounds crazy, but it is what it is. Some of the shows I’ve watched have provided me with some great role models and some ladies stuck with me over many years, for different reasons. During Twitter chats, people often ask to describe yourself through some characters and it made me really think about who I share things with and who has influenced me. Even though these characters are created by amazing writers, I get really attached to them. I mean, if you watch season after season, you can’t just not feel with these characters and in a way, they become your friends. So here is a list with some of my all-time favorite female TV show characters and why these particular ones stuck with me.

Blair Waldorf – Gossip Girl
I’m sure we can all agree that she is the ultimate queen of everything. Whatever your situation is, if you think “what would Blair Waldorf do?” you’ll probably find a solution. She’s just such an ultimate boss babe and I adore her. She’s beautiful, she’s smart, she’s confident, she’s a leader and she scares people. She’s the whole package. Just thinking about her makes we want to start watching Gossip Girl again, right now. Sure, Blair can be a real bitch, but she also has a soft side and it’s lovely when she shows it. I mean, as girls, we’re still expected to be a certain way, act a certain way and personally, I couldn’t care less about any of it and I feel like Blair has a pretty IDGAF attitude.

Another reason why I love her is because of her weak spot for Chuck Bass. When you’re a Blair type of person, it’s super hard to open up and let your feelings happen. When you fall in love, you kind of lose control of your emotions and that’s the good and bad thing about love. Blair struggles with it a lot and doesn’t always get treated in a way she deserves to be treated. But when you love somebody with all your heart, you sometimes forgive and keep believing. I’m not saying that it’s ok to be treated like crap but it’s ok to be weak sometimes and let your heart make decisions. You can’t always be strong and yes, sometimes you give the person that hurt you the most a second chance.

Blair Waldorf

 Carrie Bradshaw – Sex and the City
When people used to ask me what I wanted to do for a living, I always wanted to answer “be Carrie Bradshaw.” Because let’s be honest, her life is pretty damn cool. Do I know that the show gives you unrealistic expectations of freelance journalists? Sure. Would I still want to live that life? Definitely. Carrie writes for a living. She’s not tied to an office, has her own column and just writes about things that happen in her life, especially her love-life. Here and there, she publishes a book and with all that she can afford a fabulous New York apartment, a closet full of Manolo Blahnik’s, food dates on a daily basis and in general just anything you could hope for. Reality sure looks a lot different but still, the way she lives and works has always inspired me and given me ideas about what I want to do and where I want to go. If I could get a book published someday and work as a freelance journalist, that would be amazing.

I also admired Carrie for being single for a long time, despite her age and society’s expectations, but I also loved when she really lost her heart and learned to love, trust and compromise. And if I know one thing, it’s just super hard, especially when you’ve been alone for a really long time. She found her Mr. Big, although I still question her taste in men, but who the hell am I to talk. And the bond between these four women is also something that I connect with Carrie. Friendship is so important and I wouldn’t want to be without my girls. I would also see myself a little as the Carrie Bradshaw of our group. Who knows, maybe I suddenly feel like getting married in my 40s, as well.

Carrie Bradshaw

Summer Roberts – O.C. California
You remember her? First of all, I actually hate her because she dated Seth Cohen and he was my ultimate crush for quite a while. I also loved her because the growth of her character throughout the show was incredible and reminds me a lot of myself. I used to be a true girly girl, only caring about parties, boys, fashion etc. and in the beginning of the show, Summer was that girl. She was a snob, a bully, super shallow, and boy did I feel sorry for poor Seth who just adored her. The moment she admitted to everyone that she’s in love with a nerd still warms my heart, though. And she even dressed up as a super hero for him, which I would totally do. She was just a very fun character.

Her journey from being this stereotypical dumb girly girl to becoming a hard-working, nature loving Brown student, who didn’t hide her intelligence anymore and started believing in herself, is something that is very close to my heart. I was that girly, I was always thought of as stupid, I doubted myself but you know what? I went to uni, I marched through it like a champ and I couldn’t care less about the things today that I cared about, when I was younger. And yes, I wouldn’t mind dating a cute nerd like Seth Cohen, at all. Intelligence and a good sense of humor are so much more important than muscles or a fancy car.

Summer Roberts

Rory Gilmore – Gilmore Girls
Everybody’s darling Rory Gilmore. Honestly, at first glance we don’t have much in common. Growing up, Rory was nothing like me at all but just because people don’t seem alike, doesn’t mean they don’t have anything in common. I share her love for literature, her loyalty toward friends and her relationship with her mother. Rory and Lorelei may be a bit extreme but I’ve always shared a strong bond with my mother and we both used to especially love this about the show. The dad figure was also difficult in my life and I definitely know a thing or two about difficult and snobby grandparents.

What I admire Rory most for is her effort and hard work she puts into her education. I honestly wish I would’ve had more of her motivation during school, but I caught up at university. I was a total nerd and I loved it. What I share most with Rory is her love for journalism and the brutal reality of actually becoming a journalist. It’s damn hard and even the brightest people and hardest workers struggle. And I know that I would’ve totally fallen for Jess or Logan, as well. Bad boys for life. (Please not!)

Rory Gilmore

Clarissa Darling – Clarissa Explains it All
I’m not even sure if everyone knows this character because it’s been a while, since this show aired. I’m a 90s kid and Clarissa was definitely an important part of it. A young teenage girl with normal problems everyone could relate to. She dressed in typical 90s style and wasn’t too much of a girly girl. Her best friend was a boy, she fought with her younger brother all the time and had a pet alligator. I thought she was so cool and I even made some signs for my door that resembled some of hers.

Occasionally, I still watch this show and I even have a season on DVD. She’s still cool and I wish there were shows like this around, today. Young authentic and relatable characters and it’s not about rich people, relationships or fashion, all the time. It’s about problems with school or family in a very down-to-earth kind of way. I think Clarissa will always be a cool role model for young people and is definitely a character I will always like.

Mixtape #18 – Best of 2016

mixtape-18-best-of-2016Every month I put together a little roundup to share with everyone what I’ve been up to, and because it’s nice to look back on everything. I also include three of my favorite songs, so I thought I’d make a mixtape out of all of them to remind me what I liked in 2016 and I still like most of them. There are probably some older songs in-between, but most of them should be from last year. I’m always on the lookout for new music so please let me know what you’re currently listening to.
