Hey there, I am back. –┬áIt has been a while, how have you been?

I am now living in Hamburg, I work as an Idea Manager and also study Journalism.

To ease myself back into blogging I will publish some of my uncountable draft posts, that I started when I was travelling or when I lived in London, and never finished. I will finish them now and finally share them. Also I will start to write new posts now, so keep posted!

 

Leaving London

Streetart London
When I moved to London, I read a lot of articles and blog posts about how awesome London is and how to best settle in, what to do, what not to do and so forth. That was amazing and definitely made my arrival and my time in London easier.
But for what I did now, there wasn’t a lot of preparation. How does it feel and how do you prepare yourself for leaving London? Continue reading

5 Tips on how to make your dreams come true

IMG_2369Are you never scared?
Which thoughts do I have to avoid to be able to follow my dreams?
Is it not difficult?

What’s the long-term plan?
How do you start, what are the first steps to realising your dreams?

I have heard all those questions quite often in the last one and a half years, basically since I decided to move to London after graduation, to make my dream, that sounded so easy: Living in London, come true.  Continue reading

Writing as a hobby and one of the hardest things to do

2014-09-20 01.45.29Hey there! I have so many things to write about. My head is full of ideas, my draft box is bursting. I have started to write 6 Blog posts today. But they don’t want to be finished let alone published yet. Not one of them feels really right today. Those 6 drafts might never be published, I am still happy I started them. But why is it so hard for me to publish things I write? I have never been the most outgoing person in social networks. For me, every article I post is still a display of me, my soul, something very private and vulnerable. Continue reading

How to communicate colourful

IMG_4313Communication is everywhere. Me writing this blog post is a form of communication, the guy smiling at you in the train is communication and your boss telling you off is communication. What all these situations have in common is the fact that some kind of information is being exchanged, which, to be honest, does not mean that both sides of the communication understand the same message. The guy in the train definitely smiles at me because I have something in my face, or my hair looks weird and he is laughing at me. My boss shouts at me for no reason and therefore is a jackass. This is my side of the Continue reading

How time is the limit and the answer

IMG_4306I just watched the movie ‘Lucy’, Scarlett Johansson latest release. Even though it was slightly too ‘scifiy’ for my taste and especially the end was crap, parts of the movie really got me thinking. One message of the film, as I understood it, was that the only thing that really matters in life is the time that we spend on this earth. Things like how much money I have or how many square meters my house has are not important as these are human made units and play no role in the bigger picture. The human invented those units to make the complexity of the world understandable and tangible, but by doing that also set Continue reading

Have you met…

… Jenn? Yeah, hi, this is me, again, this worked out very well, the whole plan to post regularly… Yes I did write a lot the past couple of months, put I never hit that mean little button that says ‘Publish’. There we go, the old self-critical Jenn is back, being convinced that nothing is good enough to allow other to read or see it. So my approach has to change now, just a little bit. This blog is not gonna be perfect, it is gonna be me. Show you what I do or not do. One of the posts I prepared in the very beginning was this:

You know, I have this idea. For a while now it was my dream and now I felt ready for it. I will write a blog. And now? Now I am confused and totally overwhelmed. I read many Blog posts about ‘How to best right a blog’ and ‘What not to do in your Blog’ and I still don’t know what to do. I guess it’s gonna be a lot about practice and trying out different things. So here we go, lets see what I learned so far: Continue reading
