Up in the air with you

It's been a year of this. A year of cheesy romance, shooting stars, scooter rides and movie-like moments. A year of laughing every day, of loving every day. A year of sunsets, rooftops, and beaches. A year of traveling to each other, and finally traveling together. A year of dreaming. A year of knowing that… Continue reading Up in the air with you

From night owl to early bird. Could I do it?

I have never been a morning person. My mornings usually go like this: snooze, snooze and then snooze some more. Thinking of what to wear while still in bed, deciding whether or not I can go without washing my hair as this means an extra 30 minutes of laziness (anyone else out there who does… Continue reading From night owl to early bird. Could I do it?

Traveling the ch-easy way

When your life is packed in a suitcase, this means that one day you could be eating gelato at an Italian square, find yourself enjoying a fondue in Switzerland, or savoring a German beer (even though I'm not quite convinced that beer is something that you can actually savor?...) at a Brauerei, along with a Schnitzel and potato salad. In my case,… Continue reading Traveling the ch-easy way

Journey into the Unknown

When I imagined how life would look like once I quit my job and sailed off into the sunset to enjoy a bit of free time before taking on a new job, this is pretty much what I pictured.   I knew I would have one or two months of summer back home with my… Continue reading Journey into the Unknown

Searching for a job. And more kindness.

Three minutes. While in some cases that's a lifetime (say, if you really need to pee or if you're caught with no jacket in a snow storm), in others it's just the blink of an eye. The latter applies especially to applying for jobs, where sometimes answers arrive months after the application had been sent and… Continue reading Searching for a job. And more kindness.

Writer’s block

I’ve been sitting here for a good hour now trying to come up with a clever and witty beginning to this post. After deleting a million first sentences and staring at a still very much blank “page”, I decided I’d just keep it simple and write whatever comes to my mind and roll with it. Can’t… Continue reading Writer’s block

Reflecting about life

Picture this. I am sitting at a white table in front of my laptop in a renovated apartment in the oldest part of town. This means that, although comfortable, there's a constant background noise of tourists, incredibly loud locals who've been living here for generations and like to yell from their windows to the people on… Continue reading Reflecting about life

The good, the bad, and the “huh?”.

Here's my life at the moment: every week, I sit for hours on end looking for job offers. From company's websites to job portals or professional network sites... you name it, I'm on it. I scroll and scroll, open countless tabs, quickly scan through the job offer for any major things (e.g. do I like… Continue reading The good, the bad, and the “huh?”.
