ABOUT ME

Things my schoolmates wrote about me in our leavers book:

- always to late, even for school leaving examination
- she has got no sense of direction
- likeable loony
- loves to sing without knowing the lyrics and therefore invents her own
- spontaneous and outspoken
- loves to romp and to smell at her food before she
eats it
- loses and breaks everything (but not your
properties!Promised!)
- she isn´t ashamed of many things
- always dressed up
- visits just the relevant lessons
- her contributions are free of sense
- she´ll definitely be lost in Australia
- she´s chronically out of it and confused
- nibbles on her own fingers because of her low-fat
alimentation
(haha.no, rather because of an inner
restlessness)

PHILOSOPHY

if you are lonely when you´re alone, you´re in bad company.
if you live for having it all, what you have is never enough.

The Forest Wall:

To laugh is to risk appearing the fool.
To weep is to risk being called sentimental.
To reach out to another is to risk involvement.
To expose feelings is to risk exposing your true self.
To place your ideas, your dreams before the crowd is to risk being called naive
To love is to risk not being loved in return.
To live is to risk dying.
To hope is to risk despair, and to try is to risk failure.
But risks must be taken because the greastest hazard in life is to risk nothing.
The person who risks nothing does nothing, has nothing, and becomes nothing.
He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but he simply cannot learn and feel and change and grow and love and live.
Chained by his certitudes, he is a slave, he's forfeited his freedom.
Only the person who risks is truly free.
Leo F. Buscalia


"When in doubt, make a fool of yourself. There is a microscopically thin line between being brilliantly creative and acting like the most gigantic idiot on earth. So what the hell, leap."

"Envy is the highest form of recognition in Germany"

"There are moments when one has to choose between living one's own life, fully, entirely, completely-or dragging out some false, shallow, degrading existence that the world in its hypocrisy demands."

One Amazing Thing I've Done

woodford folk festival
island vibes festival
Byron Bay (Australia) and VAng Vieng (Laos)
Fusion festival

the small things/moments do matter. meeting great people or being at special places is the most amazing thing. so dinners with good conversation, parties, concerts, festivals and travelling are those things that stand out in my live full of school and studying. so far...

Teach, Learn, Share

There are many things I´d like to understand and I´m grateful for every little hint and help!
I´m quite bad but very interested in stuff like photography, sewing, holistic livestyle, English, history, traveling, crafting, cooking and everything else which is new to me!

Unfortunately I´m not really skilled in useful things, but I´d love to cook you something traditional Swabian like "Kässpaetzle" (a kind of self-made noodles with much cheese and onions) and share with you a bottle of wine.

What I Can Share With Hosts

I can show you a little bit of yoga:)
