  • On German Unity Day I made creamy mushroom pasta for breakfast. It was such a lovely, gloomy autumn day. I woke up early, it was still dark, so I started cleaning, organising, cooking, had a good internet reading session, made some tea. Cozy. And I started working on my project again: for years now I've been crocheting a granny square blanket. So far it's a baby blanket at best but I've frogged / undone a big piece of knitting I had done for a cardigan (which I've obviously never finished) and rolled a huge ball of yarn. It must weigh about half a kilo.
  • Jennifer Egan talking about books. She shares my notion: “In the moment of choosing, I tend to go with whatever I’m craving most. Reading is a lot like eating for me: If I try to read a book I’m not hungry for, I won’t enjoy it, but if I wait until I have a real appetite for something, I’ll devour...

“Every recipe, whether we cook it or not, offers a vision of the good life, and a way of tasting food in your brain. It doesn't need to actually have been eaten in its time to feel real to us now." - Bee Wilson

RELEASE - What did you let go of this year? // I sold my old car. I lost all affection for the places I used to live (Munich really is the place to be at the moment). My huge internet obsession (maybe). I feel like I don't spend *all* the time in front of the computer anymore when I'm at home. A good deal of social anxiety and giving a shit about what other people think. I've always been pretty complic... eeeh I mean authentic, of course, and I'm becoming even better at it. I know, not everybody likes that but I feel like some people (the good ones obviously) actually appreciate it when others are a little more special. Get your freak on! Mhh... I might have lost my desperate need to please men? In part? I just try not to take any shit anymore. Not get too attached. Me before you. Sorry, guys. (perhaps I should finally get a GIRLfriend for once?)

  • "Das Leben ist nur interessant, wenn wir unseren Willen nicht kriegen." - Haruki Murakami, Kafka am Strand // I loved reading Kafka on the Shore . Murakami seems to be an ass and I don't care much about the German translation (or has Japanese just a really weird language structure?) but I loved the story and the magic realism, the Shinto-influence. The talking to cats part. The food descriptions. The (more or less pretentious) insights and life lessons. I've even ordered two more Murakami books, in English this time. Maybe I like the style better in another language. That's why I hate reading German books that weren't originally written in German. Bad style is so much more noticable in your mother tongue.

  • Health: I'm motivated to care more about my diet again. Cook more, choose vegetables and fruit over fast food. Fasting. Losing weight. It's time. Go swimming, start forming a walking habit. Because it's fun. Because it's always good to get out. And I'd like to learn a few swing dance steps. Even though I suck at dancing.

  • Friendship: Make Doris my new best friend.
  • Love: I'm afraid it's exactly the same as last year: "Be more selective. Spend time with people I truly click with, who nourish and excite me. Ignore the rest." Ideally, I'd find a friend. A partner. I'd like to know what it feels to be in a relationship again. But it needs to be a good one, that's the catch.
