My story of bullying

Hello, my dear friends. Today I am posting here a story, which I didn’t share before on any of my channels. I was also bullied at school like many other kids. However I should say, that it was pretty mild, so I consider myself to be lucky. I remembered about this experience as my daughter…

Women are the natural masters of self-isolation

This phrase struck me as soon as I’ve heard it from someone. It is so true, even if we all complain about being stuck with kids at home during the pandemic, any mother could relate, that it is not uncommon for us to stay for weeks without going out. Let me give you an example….

Quarantine life update: what changed so far

Hello, my dear friends. Hope you are doing fine and you are healthy. We are still staying home, and I assume it will take us another month, before we really begin living ‘as usual’ (still with social distancing obviously). I just wanted to share some of the small changes, that I had in the last…

Waiting for a big shutdown

I decided to write a second blog post today as the other one I prepared beforehand and it shows only one side of my mood at the moment. The truth is that I am still shocked and confused about the world situation at the moment. Berlin is officially shutting down and closing everything, except for…

How the WW2 still affects us…literally// We got evacuated

Hello, my dear readers. Since I am back to Berlin, things haven’t been really steady here. Constantly trying to get back to the regular regime, but it really doesn’t seem to work. For example, this evening went really different from the usual. And all “thanks” to the Second World War. Yes, literally. Living in Berlin…

Back to the roots: Final post

Hello, today I’m writing my post from the airport after a sleepless night due to a long, rather inconvenient flight connection. My daughter and husband ran off somewhere (she is getting restless), and I just woke up after accidentally falling asleep at the cafe table. What a night! I decided that there should be a…
