2010-2012: broke up with frankfurt, moved to vienna, continuing my phd, travelling to dresden every 2 weeks because I was teaching at the university
2013: moved to freiburg, to my family. still working on the phd, developing board games, coaching goalkeepers, splitting firewood, arguing with my dog...
