Oooooops. Guess what I did the second I was on US soil? Order me some GLOSSIER!! (Yes, it was at the top of my list. I was running out of good cleanser and didn’t want to order from Asia. Also pink bubblewrap pouches.)
I am officially losing it. See, a couple of weeks ago, I was sitting on a patio in China and now I am in the US of A. Currently I am sitting on my little balcony, overlooking the Willamette River. Yup, I am in Portland OR.
I am not much for bike riding anymore. During my school time, I’d bike everywhere. But since then, my commute has always been public transport based. And even though Germany is often described as bike-friendly, I never really felt safe biking. Until I went to Beijing.

It’s been a little quiet on here. The explanation is simple: China happened. Between the crappy internet connection, the great firewall and work taking up all of my time, I decided to postpone any blogging to when I was back to Germany. So now that I am back, I have a massive backlog of posts. […]
Last Sunday I turned 25 years old. It feels strange to be 25 truth be told. Nothing has changed, I am still perpetually tired, I did not wake up suddenly an adult and I am still trying to figure out who I am and what I actually want from life. Celebrations were champagne soaked with […]
