Which Moomin Character Are You?

This is a little post about the adorable Moomins and a quiz you can do online to find out which character you are. Do you remember this cute kids show? I know there were books and comics way before it, but that’s how I know them. And I’m always up for a little online quiz that tells me so much about my personality. How else could I ever know who I really am, right?

So this is truly one of my favorites because the Moomins are the cutest, the website is pretty fun to browse and it really makes me want to visit Moominworld in Finland, more and more. Also, the result is one that really surprised me for being super accurate. Isn’t it super scary when this happens? I know that the quizzes are just for fun, but often enough, they’re actually true, which blows my mind.

Which Moomin Are You

So apparently I’m Moomintroll, the main character of the show and he is just too cute to be true. And the result said:

You always enjoy the company of your dear friends and you totally trust them and they trust you. You often get excited about things you see and you believe that there are many super exciting things in the world to explore!

Even if you find your home and its surrounding to be the most interesting and safest in the world, you are still curious and daring enough to embark on new adventures!

This describes me so terribly well. My friends mean the world to me and I couldn’t imagine a life without them, even though I really have to motivate myself to meet up. Because as this quiz point out, my home is my safe place and I love being here. My room is everything to me and I hate leaving it, every single day. Once I get out though and do fun things, I of course love it. So I force myself to go on new adventures, every once in a while, because I know how deeply happy they make me. I’m always open for something new and even if it’s scary, I just need to push myself a bit, cause the world has so many amazing things to offer.

Goodbye July 2018

Goodbye July,

and hello august. Wow, another month just flew by. Christmas is pretty much around the corner. I definitely feel it though, since I was pretty relaxed at the beginning of the month, after having some time off from work at the end of June, and now I’m not. I definitely wouldn’t say no to another vacation, but it’s just not going to happen.

The heat isn’t helping, either. Seriously, if I hear anyone complaining about not having a proper summer this year, I may lose it. How crazy is this weather? For my taste, it could be a bit cooler, though. It makes work so much harder. I have a million things to do, but it’s a bit hard to focus. But we always complain about the weather anyway, no matter what. I’m looking forward to fall though. It’s just my favorite season and I definitely have less trouble getting dressed. And don’t get be started on all the freaking bugs.

Instagram Mix July

So usually, I now tell you what I did all month. I can’t even remember doing anything besides work and sleep. And of course watch lots of TV shows and believe it or not, I did a lot more blogging than usual. I’m really trying to get better at it again, also with social media. I even started scheduling promo tweets again. It’s a miracle. And I definitely have a lot more things I want to write about, which is good. I just really have to keep kicking myself a bit, but I feel good about it. Sometimes, I just have a hard time writing, because I also write a lot for work and there is just so much writing I can do.

I think I had one date this month with my bestie and we went for waffles and I also hat a bratwurst. That’s pretty much all it takes to make me happy. There was also my grandma’s birthday and my brother’s, as well. Both were really nice and of course cake made it all even better. My absolute highlight were my parents being on vacation for ten days, though. I love them, but I’m too old to still be living at home and I get over it, from time to time. So it was nice to have some peace and quiet. It also made my brother and me be closer again. I can’t even explain why. Maybe it’s because I’m trying to be more relaxed and not get upset over every little thing.

So that’s that. It was hot, boring and also stressful. But I’m really needing all the chill time I can get. Whenever I get home, I can barely keep my eyes open, but by the end of August, it will be better and I’m looking forward to that. There are a lot of people I want to hang out with, and by the end of the month, I will be all motivated for that again.

Enjoy summer as long as it lasts. Blast your favorite summer tune on your way to work – it will make your day so much better. Stop letting every little thing get to you.  Eat lots of ice cream. Make time for yourself. Be open to new opportunities. Know your worth. Sit outside at night and listen to the chirping. Look up and count the stars. Have a lovely month.

Tons of love,

Mainz Germany Schillerplatz

A Love Letter To My Friends

Dear friends,

today is international friendship day, so I thought this is a good opportunity to tell you how much I love you. I’m writing this to thank you girls from the bottom of my heart for your friendship. You have no idea what it means to me to have such lovely people in my life.

I was never the most popular kid on the block, but I was always lucky enough to have some great friends in my corner. Thank you for sticking up for me, when others try to bring me down. Words cannot express how grateful I am for everyone who never gives a damn about what others have to say about me. When the whole world seems to be against you, you realize who you’re real friends are. The people who are willing to go to war for and with you are the ones you should keep around. And I’m grateful to have warriors by my side.

Some of my greatest memories in life are moments I shared with you. I will forever remember all those nights when we danced until the break of dawn. All the inside jokes we still share and laugh about. All the boys we talked about, chased down – ok, let’s call it minor stalking – and helped each other with. All those times we got drunk and just had the best time ever. The sleepovers, the movie nights, the trips, the festivals, the shopping sprees and all those years some of us went to school together. So many firsts we shared and I’m sure there are a lot more to come.

Love Letter

I want to thank you for every smile you put on my face, for every tear you dry, for every hug we share. Thank you for being there to fix me, after being left with a broken heart. Thank you for making your home always feel like home to me. Thank you for being more than friends – for being sisters at heart. Thank you for holding my hair when I get sick after partying too hard. Thank you for picking up the tab, when I’m broke. Thank you for always having a place for me to sleep. Thank you for always lending me an ear to moan about all my first world problems. Thank you for taking pictures of me over and over again, until I’m satisfied. I know you hate it.

I am grateful that you trust me with your kids and pets because I know that isn’t always an easy thing to do. It means the world to me. And I also thank you for telling me when I’m in the wrong, without judging me. You make me a better person. Thank you for letting me know how much I mean to you, because knowing that I’m an important person in your life fills my heart with joy. You know that I would do anything for you, no matter what time of day it is, and your appreciation is very special to me.

You make my world go round and you’re always the light at the end of a dark tunnel. I know that no matter what happens to me or what I do, you will be there. And I know that some people come and go and that is ok, but I’m sure that I have found some soulmates that will be by my side until we’re gray and old. I can’t wait to see what the future has in store for us and I’m looking forward to every single moment we will share.

I love you and I’m grateful that I’m on this earth the same time as you are.

Tik Tok – Your Clock Is Ticking

Tick Tock you're clock is ticking

This year, I turned 30. For many people, this is a signal to give me pitiful looks and worry about my ticking clock. Especially, because I’ve been single for a million years. But the thing is, I never wanted kids. I still don’t and I don’t care, if a million people tell me to “just wait” and “you’ll change your mind”. I mean sure, there is always a slight chance of changing your mind, but I doubt it. And I don’t get why it’s so hard for others to just accept the fact that a proper adult deliberately makes a decision like this. Last time I checked, I wasn’t some teenager, anymore.

The problem is that even in 2018, society still expects women to want and to have children. It still hasn’t settled in that women may have different plans than what is considered “traditional.” I also don’t want to get married. Sue me! I’m just tired to defend myself for something, that I shouldn’t have to defend myself for. I even have friends that cannot accept it. I mean, if you’re whole life evolves around your children and there is literally nothing else going on anymore, that’s fine for you, but to me, that just sounds horrible. And I’m not saying that it’s the way it has to be and that you still get to have a life as a parent, but all the changes that come with it – I just can’t see myself making them.

To be honest, I’m happy that I don’t feel the urge to start a family because considering the situation I’m in, I would be absolutely devastated with time actually running. And no, I don’t think you’re too old to get kids when you’re over thirty (my personal limit is like forty), but having a child with someone should be a well thought out decision. And I’ve been single for eight years now, so finding a father for my baby seems to be a mission impossible. I’m just not into the daddy type of guy.

Baby holding hands

You don’t want children? But you’re so good with them.

So here’s the deal. I’m really great with kids. I honestly think that I’d be a fabulous mom, but I’m just always really glad to give back the kids people throw at me. I’ve taken care of a baby for a year as an au pair, I have a god son who is turning eight in December and I’m sure he’s not going to be the only god child in my life. Friends fully trust me with their little ones and I just always end up with the kids at parties. They truly love me. Probably cause I’m still a big kid myself and am just up for anything. You’ll find me on a playground in a fancy dress because I just couldn’t care less. If it makes a kid happy, I’ll do it. That doesn’t mean, I let them get away with everything, though. I’m actually pretty strict, but it doesn’t make the kids love you any less.

Anyway, I really don’t want to sound awful, but kids can be such assholes. There, I said it. I love them, but I also don’t. When they reach a certain age, I really have a hard time being patient. I mean babies don’t understand things and that’s fine. I don’t mind teaching them. When they’re old enough though to know exactly what you want from them and they still ignore you? That’s just not for me. I recently had my god son over for the weekend. And as much as I love the kid, I also wanted to throw him out the window. He just knows everything and is always right. I find it especially annoying, since I know where it comes from and I just don’t think that it’s healthy to make children always feel that they’re kings and queens. A child should get used to failing, once in a while. It will probably make them feel a little less disappointment along the way. But as a non-parent, you mostly don’t get to have an opinion. Because how could an objective outsider with no kids possibly know anything, right?

Not wanting kids doesn’t make me a monster or any less of a woman!

So yeah, I have my reasons. I want to see the world, I want to work on my career, I want to hang out with my friends, I want to eventually date again, I want to make rash decisions that impact nobody, but myself, I want to sleep all weekend, if I feel like it, I definitely never want to be forced to get up early (aside from work, of course) and I just don’t want to take that kind of responsibility. And yes, having a child doesn’t mean that I can’t do things, I just don’t want to feel guilty because I know I would. But all of this doesn’t make me a monster or any less of a woman. It is my personal decision to not have kids. So you can all calm down and stop worrying about my ticking clock.

12 Awesome Chick Flicks You Have To Watch – Part 2

Chick Flicks

I already gave you the first part of my list, and I could write a lot more posts about so-called chick flicks cause I truly live for them, but these are six more that are really high on my list. Maybe I’ll continue with suggestions but a total of 12 will just have to do for now.

07. The Sweetest Thing
Who would ever say no to a Cameron Diaz comedy? She’s hilarious! I mean sure, the story is a bit weird and some moments are just like WTF?! but it makes me laugh, every time. Let’s all sing the penis song together. Or the Pina Colada song? Trust me, it’s fun. And it’s set in San Francisco, which has a special place in my heart. It’s just a super fun and crazy comedy that guarantees lot’s of laughs. And in case you need inspo for your next costume party, pay close attention to the store scene.

08. Uptown Girls
The movie is really beautiful. A touching story about love and loss, friendship, trust, growing up but never forgetting your inner child and so much more. The two main characters are incredibly loveable and it’s just the sweetest. They’re played by the beautiful Brittany Murphy, may she rest in peace, and Dakota Fanning, who is an absolute queen. I’m not sure how popular the movie is, but please give it a try.

chick flicks

09. Pretty Woman
This is the most classic movie on the planet and I’m an absolute sucker for it. Whenever it’s on TV, I have to watch it. Julia Roberts is one of the most beautiful women on earth and Pretty Woman is just full of iconic scenes. Nothing makes me happier than seeing her give it to those snobby ladies at the store, who didn’t want to serve her. And of course it gives us the happy end we all hoped for. It may be one of the most unrealistic stories ever, but it certainly is one of the most beautiful.

Chick flick

10. Legally Blonde
If Elle Woods isn’t the best role model on the planet, then who is?! This blond Barbie doll showing everyone what she’s capable of is just the best thing, because it just shows you that appearance doesn’t say s*it about you. As a teenager, I was more like her than anyone else. I adored her so much and she always reminded me that I can be whatever I want to be, no matter what people say. And trust me, they said horrible things. Becoming a lawyer wasn’t my goal, but I’m great at what I do and I killed at university and when I got my Master’s degree, I definitely had an Elle Woods moment. And OMG – they’re gonna make a third movie. Best news ever! Also, how does Selma Blair always seem to get the, how do I put this, most “interesteing” roles?!

chick flicks

11. Coyote Ugly
Remember watching that movie and thinking just how cool it would be to work at a bar and dance on the counter, while getting soaking wet or playing with fire? These ladies made it look like absolute goals. I love that the movie teaches you how you can achieve your goals, when you put in hard work. And that it’s perfectly ok to start somewhere, you didn’t see yourself at. We all need to survive and whatever helps you get there, do it. Unless it’s illegal. Not a fan of that. And if you live for serving people at a bar and dancing for them, then go for it. Nothing wrong with this.

chick flicks

12. The Clique
Honestly, I’m not sure if anyone besides me actually know this movie. It’s based on a book series for young adults, written by Lisi Harrison. I actually came across it in my 20s and I enjoyed it so much. Finding out that there is a movie had me go nuts. It’s your average teenage brats story, with a group of rich and snobby girly girls and an outsider trying to fit in. Classic. I never really get tired of them. If you’re a fan, absolutely give it a go. I don’t think it’s on Netflix or anything though, so you may have to buy the DVD, in case people still do that. Or read the books, cause they’re fun.

12 Awesome Chick Flicks You Have To Watch – Part 1

Chick Flicks

For as long as I can remember, I really loved girly movies. Especially during my teenage years, they were pretty much my bible and I just wanted to live exactly like the girls in the movies, which obviously wasn’t so easy, but I tried very hard. I was obsessed with writing down quotes and phrases and trying to integrate them into my life. I even printed out several copies to give to my friends, so we could all talk like that (which didn’t really happen). I also looked the part and basically lived up to every cliché presented. Platinum blond hair, an intense obsession with pink, plastic finger nails, high heels and whatever else you can think of.

But not all movies on my list have a Barbie doll as the leading character. They’re productions that, no matter how often I watch them, I never ever get bored off, and that never cease to make me laugh. I share many great memories with a lot of them and if you haven’t watched every single one, you’re definitely missing out.

01. Dirty Dancing
This will forever be my favorite movie of all times. I’m such a cliché, I know. But it also used to be me my mom’s favorite, so I was really young when I watched it for the first time. It’s one of the few movies, I don’t mind watching in German, because that’s how I always watched it. It sounds weird to me, when I watch it in English, and I can’t join in saying the lines. Also, the soundtrack is just so fun. I mean, have you listened to “Hungry Eyes?” Doesn’t get much better than that. I’m also still waiting for a man, I can do the full dance with, because goals.

02. Clueless
The first time I watched Clueless, I was around 13 years old and had my best friend over. It took us like five seconds to love it and from thereon, we were Cher and Dionne. Ideally, I was blond and have light skinned, and she has dark hair and dark skin. It was a match made in heaven. We actually still use words and gestures from that movie. It’s a bit like code language, cause nobody else get’s it. I still want Cher’s amazing closet, a white Jeep and Josh.

03. 10 Things I Hate About You
If you don’t love this movie, are you even human? It is super fun, has an amazing soundtrack and OMG Heath Ledger, may he rest in peace. This high school romance is just adorable and every time the song “Hypnotize” comes on, I feel like getting up on a table and dance like no one is watching. And again, the soundtrack is everything. The only part that will forever be a bit upsetting is the fact that Kat basically forgives Patrick, after he buys her a guitar. I mean…really? But I guess we all know the feelings she displays through her poem ” . . . But mostly I hate the way I don’t hate you – not even close, not even a little bit, not even any at all.” *sigh*

04. Spice World
As someone who grew up in the 90s, I just have to have Spice World on my list. The girls were my childhood heroines and they did so much for Girlpower. The movie was just the cherry on top of everything else these ladies gave us. The story is of course completely insane, but I never ever get tired of watching it. My favorite scene will forever be the jump over the bridge. I mean, that is special effects excellency. And the interior of the bus is just insane. I still want a swing in my room, a red lips sofa and a catwalk. It’s just the coolest and I really wanted a bee stuffed animal, like Emma has in the movie. And you know what I was really disappointed about? When the song they sang at that promotion gig in Milan wasn’t on the album. Still am.

05. Mean Girls
Back in high school, I was 100% a Pla$tic (Yes, that’s a dollar sign for an s). My friends and I were nicknamed the Pla$tics because we were more on the girly side, while most other girls were the exact opposite. But you know what? We had the best time and haters are gonna hate anyway. I probably still have our burn book somewhere and they’re all in it. The movie is just fun. I admit, not a Hollywood masterpiece, but who cares?! It has some of the most known pop cultural references for a reason. Seriously, if you don’t celebrate October 3rd as Mean Girls Day, you’re not living right. But, you go Glen Coco!!!

06. Cruel Intentions
Can you name only one girl who wouldn’t immediately say yes to watching Cruel Intentions? It’s this dark and twisted story that just gets you absolutely hooked. And back in the 90s, every girl probably fell in love with Sebastian and was absolutely devastated, when he died. The whole story is just so crazily beautiful and tragic. As a young girl, I was fascinated. These teenagers were so grown up. All the drugs, sex and girls making out in the park – I mean, how could anyone ever forget this iconic scene?! And it’s another movie with a fantastic soundtrack. I’m always big on the music.

To be continued . . .

The Gilmore Girls Tag

It has been ages, since I found this fun tag on the Blossom Twins’ blog, after actually bonding over the Gilmore Girls Netflix special back in 2016. That’s how long the questions have been lingering in my drafts. Typical me! But I’ve always loved the Gilmore Girls, and the show or this tag never get old, so I felt like doing it now. If you’re a fan as well, please answer the questions yourself, because I would love to discuss these very important aspects of the show. *crosses fingers for everyone to pick the right team*

© Netflix

1. Let’s get the tough question out the way first…Team Dean, Team Jess or Team Logan?
Isn’t this the most discussed Gilmore Girls question? I don’t even have to think about dismissing Dean. I mean, her first love and all, but I found him extremely boring and he tried to hold Rory back. He wanted a classic housewife and we all know that’s not exactly what a Gilmore is made of. She had wayyy too much ambition compared to him. And the whole sleeping with your ex before your wedding thing? That’s a big fat NO!

I liked Jess. Of course I did, because bad boys are my thing. I loved that he was the free spirit to Rory’s controlled self, but I don’t know, if I wanted to be someone, who doesn’t have any self-control, who is definitely too emotional and who just leaves, when things get hard. I definitely liked his creative side and that he loved reading, though. But I don’t think that he’s the man to have a future with.

Which leaves Logan. He may come off as arrogant, snobby – just your typical rich boy, but I always loved how much of an effort he made for Rory. He may have had an “I’ll get you to be my girl” kind of attitude, but he worked to make her fall for him and didn’t just expect her on a silver platter. And I feel like he stood up for her, especially to his father. He loved her ambition and supported her decisions. Maybe he had a hard time accepting that she didn’t want his help, but his intentions were always good. However, I was disappointed in his ultimatum to either move to the West Coast with him, or to break up. Yeah, long distance is hard, but she has a right to live her dreams, as well.

I just have such a hard time picking a team, but it sure as hell isn’t Dean.

2. You stop by Luke’s Diner, your go to menu item is: Blueberry muffin, Pastry, French toast, Burger and Fries or pancakes with strawberries?
All of it sounds absolutely amazing, but I would probably opt for burger and fries. I can never say no to that, although I’m usually more of a sweet tooth.

3. Harvard or Yale?
Harvard. It just sounds so good. And I already have the shirt for it at home.

4. It’s time for the Star’s Hollow ‘Bid on a Basket’ festival. What are you putting in your basket?
Definitely a bag of Doritos, because I’m so classy. Also water, cause I’m not super big on alcohol, but I’ll pack a beer for my date. Maybe some meat balls, definitely my mom’s pasta salad, cheese, grapes and some chocolate for after. Or I’d do a breakfast basket with hard-boiled eggs, pancakes, fruit, yoghurt and a thermos full of tea.

5. What’s your favourite Gilmore Girls treat food? Pop tarts, Pizza, Chinese, Twinkies?
Chinese for sure. If I want to treat myself, that’s what I get. Usually sweet and sour shrimp with lots and lots of white rice. I really have to pay my favorite Chinese food place a visit soon.

6. Friday night dinners or Star’s Hollow Town meeting?
Watching Gilmore Girls, I keep thinking how lovely this little town is and how sweet and helpful most of the people are, but in reality, I would probably go nuts. But I’ll definitely choose the town meeting. Emily and Richard often remind me of my own grandparents and as much as I love them, I don’t need to sit through a dinner with them, every week. And I mean, with the whole money borrowing thing, it’s forced anyway. I’d rather have Taylor annoy me.

7. Christopher, Max, Jason or Luke?
When you leave me hanging for 16 years, you can just go to hell, so Christopher would definitely not even come close to getting a chance. Jason also wasn’t my thing. Max was really great, but imagine your mother bringing home one of your teachers. I would’ve died. But aside from that, he’s a great guy. All my votes go to Luke, though. He’s just the best. When I think of a keeper, it’s him. The only thing that bothers me, was when April enters his life and he pushes Lorelai away. Great that he wanted to be with his daughter, but you know, a little over dramatic. But in the end, they got married, and that makes me insanely happy.

8. Rory’s ideal night alone is doing laundry in her pajamas, while eating Indian food. What would your ideal night alone be?
She sounds a lot like me, but my food would probably be Chinese and instead of doing laundry, I’d just binge-watch TV shows. Although thinking about it, I do clean the bathroom pretty late, when nobody is home. We’re basically twins.

9. Who would you rather hang out with, Paris, Lane or Marty?
Lane for sure. She’s creative, fun and having a childhood friend is truly a nice thing. Paris is just too much and we would get into huge fights, cause I would never let anyone push me around like that. And Marty who? I hardly paid attention too him. Too needy and you don’t get a girlfriend, when you’re actually in love with her best friend. That was him, right?

10. Finally, with ‘A Year in the life’ just around the corner, what season would you love to visit Stars Hollow in?
Well, it has actually been almost two years, since it hit Netflix and I remember being sooo excited. I love a lot of things about every season, but fall is my absolute favorite. And Connecticut is beautiful during this time of year. Also Halloweeeeeen.
