Interlude

Schweden 2015-129Lately it has been quiet on this blog, very quiet. This was due to a couple of reasons. At the beginning I didn’t really feel like blogging. I was out of ideas and didn’t really feel like creating something, I was just kind of stuck. After a while, the inspiration came back but that was when I had absolutely no time to do anything else than working and writing papers. And now I have to announce, that it might possibly stay this way for a little while longer.

2016 is the year of change for me. I am almost done with university, which means that I can no longer hide from the real world. I am trying to adjust slowly and this is why I´ll be doing an internship in Berlin for the next few months. I can´t really estimate, if and how much time that leaves me for blogging and creating recipes and since I don’t want to pressure myself and enjoy my time here in the big city, I can only give you a rather vague “maybe, maybe not”. There might be something happening here, there might not but if you want to know what I am up to, you can keep me company over at Instagram.

Since I didn’t want to start my break without saying anything further and since I didn’t have time to come up with a creative recipe, I am trying something new today. There are various bloggers out there, who sent around a series of links here and then and I´ve always like this very much. I am not the biggest internet guru, mostly I am hanging out on the same three websites but nevertheless, here is what I found interesting, funny and/or delicious the last couple of weeks.

Vegetable chips made in the oven – for years I thought that I didn´t like beetroots. Turns out I was wrong and they are utterly tasty when they are turned into chips.(Recipe only in German)

Spinach Tortellini Soup – it has been a while since I made this recipe but it´s always a winner.

Baby elephant gifs – this is my internet happy place. No matter how bad your day is going, it´s nothing cute tiny little baby elephants can´t fix.

Trash is for tossers – a couple of weeks ago I discovered this blog and was very impressed by the way, Lauren Singer managed to reduce her waste. We all know that we are producing way to much trash but I haven’t really looked into the ways this could be reduced. I definitely want to implement some of her ideas.

Why are vegetarians annoying? – Spoiler alert: because they are right. If you´re looking for good, reflected thoughts on current topics, Hank (and his brother John) Green are always there to help.

Jordin Fisher: Those magic changes – I can´t get this song out of my head!

Alex Diel: Nur ein Lied – I´ve already talked a bit about what is happening in my country right now. It hasn’t really gotten better but fortunately, there are still voices out there like the one from Alex Diel. I couldn’t find the lyrics in English but basically, this song is about spreading love, not hate! Definitely worth listening too.
