Coming out of hibernation

Dear readers,

I am aware that I was woefully absent in the past few months. I was wrapped up in some form of numbing coldness, winter depression, hibernation mode, whatever you want to call it. Fact is, I had absolutely no motivation to write about things I have done, I didn’t even have much motivation to do anything at all.

But now finally spring has announced its arrival and with the returning sun, my energy is also starting to come back. I have quit my part-time job as zombie and since then I feel so much better! Instead, I am now walking my neighbour’s dog a few times a week – I am happy to get active again and having a young, energetic, and curious dog with you is bound to lighten your mood.

My days of being a postgrad student are coming to an end. Two days ago I had my final lecture at uni – I still cannot believe that it was my last lecture in possibly ever – unless I decide to pursue another degree in god knows what. Photography or stage design or something like that 😀 But let’s face it, it is unlikely. Soon, the “real world” will embrace me as a contributing part of the workforce.

The past weeks have been very stressful. Not only did I have some assignments to hand in, I am also preparing my master thesis and simultaneously applying for jobs, both in London and back home in Germany.

I am hoping to have a little more time around May to catch up on my blog and write about past events. There have been a few: Museums, city tours, choir events etc. But I am sure you all understand that after writing 3000-word essays, I don’t necessarily feel like writing another few hundred words about those adventures. I actually have a few drafts sitting in my blog profile… So stay tuned for those to be posted online.

For now, I wish everyone a Happy Easter and joyful spring break. We all deserve a little sunshine in our lives after the rather bleak winter.

Improve your life with Disney

You think Disney movies are nothing more than silly stories for little children with characters that burst into song every other minute? Well, think again.

Having grown up with Disney and never having stopped loving it, there are many nuggets of wisdom I have learned and engraved into my heart. Disney is more than a company that produces movies. It is a way of life. Not only do you learn the basics of social interaction – like “Don’t lie”, “Don’t accept gifts from creepy people”, “Don’t judge by appearances” – Disney is also the ultimate way to motivate yourself. To work towards a dream, to go the distance, to believe in oneself and the people around you, to appreciate your family, to never give up. Those are values one should always remember.

Apart from those really deep thoughts that Disney incorporates in each and every movie they do, the stories are just heartwarming, funny and filled with songs that just cheer you up or give you an extra boost when you need it. I cannot tell you how many times a Disney song was exactly what I needed to feel better or to get up and dance around the flat. Humming a song just makes me smile and positive thoughts lead to positive energy lead to positive working outcomes. Apparently, this incredibly easy way to improve your mood has now seeped into the harsh business world, as this article shows. So people, start singing, humming, drumming, whatever it is you do best!

In the (un?)likely case you are in a situation where bursting into song might lead to incredible embarrassment, try the mute version of Disney – looking at Disney art. My favourite way of doing this is by visiting this blog: Oh-my-Disney! Seriously guys, put this onto your favourites, for this blog never fails to make you laugh and jump around in giddy happiness. It is also addictive, so beware! 😉

I guess all I want to express with this post can be summed up with this. Cheers.
