The Silent Child

Usually I’m not that much into short movies. But as VRT broadcasted this one, I got curious. In this 20-minute film we follow Libby, a 4-year-old girl with severe hearing problems, in her world of silence. Her parents seem to be too busy to actually be aware of her feelings. She looks a bit lost…

The Stress Monster

While most people have no clue how severe the impact of stress and thus an overdose of cortisol can be for your body and brain, I can confirm all of the mentioned effects and some more. Once you are in that vicious circle it is very hard to escape from it. Wisest lesson learned is very…

Happy New Year

Being alone at home on new year’s eve isn’t much lonier than being alone in the superficial, drunk crowd on the streets that I usually get myself into. Being sick on a night like this is.. Not to mention the dilemma what to do with all the leftover Cava 😉 I guess now I will…

Nailed it

Seldomly have I seen such a clear explanation of the difference between a male and female approach of a problem. Immediately recognized the problemsolving approach of men but for women it’s NOT about the nail! It’s all about listening and most importantly, being heard. In my world, that is 😉

CitizenFour

Director Laura Poitras made the best documentary I have seen in a long time. Hard to believe what I just saw is really happening in this century.  Laura started receiving anonymous encrypted e-mails from CitizenFour, who appeared to be Edward Snowden. He claims to have evidence of NSA spying on basically every US citizen and many countries…

What If I Fall?

Well, then I’ll get up. Not afraid of falling or taking the next step any longer. Not waiting for other people to take control, this life is about me. So I take responsibility about my own happiness. Leaving behind what is of no need any longer and taking on what is precious. Travel light. Maybe…

50 things that make me happy

Now I am not sure which list is more important to me. The previous one or this one. It is kind of funny to do this and see what automatically comes up. Guess it is pretty clear that I love to use my senses 🙂 This is also one of the boxes to tick off…

20 things about me

In the context of my DayZero project that I started years ago, I forced myself to make a list of 20 things I like about myself. That proved to be a bit confronting and exciting. Especially to throw it out here. But I want to tick off that stupid box. Here we go.. I am funny I…
