It’s Almost Christmas!

In case you weren’t already aware, it’s almost Christmas! I could spend paragraphs upon paragraphs raving about how amazing snow is, and how cold weather is incredible, also how family and this season are my favorite things… but I won’t (given that I’m sure you’ve heard it from me, or like me already). But just…

Back To My Roots

What does going back to your roots mean? I would define it as doing something that embodies a former version of your present self. What I mean by going back to my roots is multidimensional this week. This whole last year has been a whirlwind of new experiences and being forced way out of my…

Books and books… (Oh and a headstand)

Life in Cologne is many things, but one thing I didn’t expect was for it to be difficult. Of course language school is no breeze in the park, but adapting to new cities and cultures is usually a particular strong point of mine. Keyword there: usually. Take away all that mumbo-jumbo about adaption and cultural…

Chanting Meditations

Chanting is kind of weird. If you’re not a spiritual kind of person, then it can actually be very disconcerting to begin any sort of meditation that includes vocal chanting, it just seems… too hippie. When I started Teacher Training earlier this summer, I was in fact very put off by it. After all, as…

Travels in Köln

Every morning I wake up, eat my two hard boiled eggs, drink grapefruit juice, and bike 8.8km to my language school in Köln (Cologne), Deutschland. Pretty solid routine, if I don’t say so myself. It’s been just over a week in Köln where my days are spent learning German and discovering what this fantastic city…

While Abroad… (This one is odd, promise)

Some more random short stories (and this one is very strange, I promise) that I wrote while on a binge of stream-of-consciousness stories. So apologies in advance for what is probably one of the oddest, but still most fun, things I’ve ever had the pleasure of writing. Enjoy please 🙂

While Abroad… (Who’s Frightened Of the Dark?)

Not entirely sure if anything written here is the slightest bit good, but can you blame me for needing to do something while the train moves? Writing is the best way, by far, to pass the time. Oh also side note: after I finish preparing for my presentation in a few weeks and finish my…

The Start of an Adventure Part III

Hope you strangers and friends are enjoying reading this as much as I enjoy writing it. Because let’s be honest here… I’m sort of in love with Bernard already even though I know just as much about him as you readers do. If you have just found this story, there should a link on the…

The Start of an Adventure Part II

Feeling attached to your brief stories is never a good idea… But somehow it’s happened twice with these ones. Adventure is fun to write and to continue it is even more fun! I hope you enjoy it : ) Here’s the first chapter thing: The Start of an Adventure Description: Louis leaves home to enter…
