About Me

i cherish honesty, trustworthyness, considerateness & taking responsibility for one's actions, but i also treasure emotionality, spontaneity & random crazy deliriousness. i guess i'm very much living in my own thoughts but i still try to live&act consciously. i believe that often the things we do that seem small to us make the most amazing changes in the world.

i work in a library, as catsitter&dogwalker and do random jobs at the academy of fine arts & wherever i can find them to finance my living and my current studies of gender studies, english literature & various random subjects. i have also studied german literature and will hopefully be a licensed massage therapist soon. i live in a permanent state of fluid identity as a crazy catperson, artsy-fartsy bohemian teaparty hostess etc. rainbows, bubbles & sunflower fields make me incredibly happy.

CURRENT MISSION
queer-feminist world domination. and something completely different.

PHILOSOPHY
"what do you do? - nothing. i let life rain on me." - attributed to rahel varnhagen

"even after all this time, the sun never says to the earth: ‘you owe me.’ look what happens with a love like that: it lights up the whole sky." - hafiz

"one must still have chaos in oneself to give birth to a dancing star." - friedrich nietzsche
