dont let people happen to you
We can’t let people happen to us. That is true. And I do thank Liz for the link and for whoever created this single post-it note on the
internet. we should not let people happen to us. or moments without realizing them for what they are. but fear not, this is not a thing you can pick up on, this is something you have to learn. failure is good, failure is progress. it’s is good.

A single man
it does happen sometimes. not very often though, that there are films that are like this. from the first frame to the last it was delightful. asthetic. fierce. moving. emotional. deep. every single frame was composed. the story is intriguing and told in a very sensitive way.
a delightful thing. tom ford delivered.

saturdays
since I was little saturday is my favourite day of the week. you can sleep in as long as you want and you can go to bed when you want. and usually a saturday feels like it lasts forever. I try to enjoy it every week, with fleamarkets or inviting friends over for brunch, or slunch or dinner. this is the one day that feels like holiday.

[ fika] swed. verb.: the swedish tradition to go and take a coffee break or invite friends for coffee.
It’s such a lovely thing to do. bake a cake, make a coffee, invite your friends and sit out- or inside.

kaleidoscopes
they are pretty. they make you see the world in different colors, shapes and the patterns are crazy. they can make you see things differently, literally and metaphorically.

Frühjahrsputz
nach den Winter muss man sich ein wenig auf den Frühling vorbereiten. Ein paar Schichten abschütteln, ein wenig Sachen wegräumen, ausmisten. Altes gehen lassen, damit man neues besser festhalten kann. Ich sitze grade am Schreibtisch und schmeiß Zettel um Zettel weg! Tabularasa!

SPIELEABENDE
egal ob uno uno oder “wer bin ich?” oder 3 stunden siedler von catan. spieleabende sind super. neustes spiel “der name der rose”… haben william von baskerville und adson in sean connery und christian slater umbenannt. definitives entertainment ;)

the little movie theaters
we have one in the little town where I study. It’s really awesome. the show the little art movies that never get played, wich is a crime to good taste and awesome movies. and they host the annual poetryslams and have sunday matineés with our philosophy professor. I still need to go to that. oh and they sell this really really good beer.

“Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” { Beyoncé }
it’s catchy. it’s this ridiculous dance. it’s a damn feel good song. even the “grunge/indie” roomster has it one the playlist and it’s the saturday morning dance in our apartment, or the I-am-about-to-go-to-a-party-song, or the weeee-I-feel-so-good-I-might-put-a-ring-on-it-while-singing-put-a-ring-on-it-song…

SPRING FOOD
I love fresh food. asparagus and rhubarb. you can make risotto or marmalade for your friends, well not with the asparagus. delicious!!!

PACKPAPIER
packpapier ist so ein universaltalent. perfekt für collagen oder um dinge einzupacken. und es ist recyclebar.

HOW TO MAKE IN AMERICA
is this new tv show I found. it’s about people in new york trying to make a living and landing it big. the intro has the helvetica font and the song is quite catchy as well. the stories and the acting is superb. and it’s in new york!!!

MC SWEENEY’S RECOMMENDS
So, I found Dave Eggers a while ago, he wrote this book about the present america. and mc sweeney’s is his founded independet publishing house. and so after clicking through the mc sweeney webs I found this site were they recommend things they like. and shamelessly got inspired. so there you have it.
they have a great great list of things they like. maybe you like them too. you can find the link on the dooblydoo on the right side ;)

oh and here you can read a sample of one of my favorite books of eggers “WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE”.
