I love pasta! I mean, who doesn’t really, but my ideal comfort food is anything pasta related and when I came across recipes for a plant-based mac and cheese, I thought I’d experiment and put my own twist on in.
I feel slightly less guilty stuffing my face with this on a cosy night watching a movie. I don’t feel as “ugh” afterwards and I know there was at something nutritious in it. Basically a perfect Sunday night meal to have.
I recently listened to an episode of the Rich Roll podcast with Gretchen Rubin and it is all about how you thrive and how you react to inner and outer expectations.
This past Wednesday (27th September) a year ago, I had my brain surgery. One of the things I asked my surgeon right after surgery was whether I could still box and do headstands.
I was going to write an ode to public transport, having recently gotten back on the rush hour trains. But today, elections in Germany took place and I am currently watching live streams of the results.
I voted in this election, my first time ever actually voting in a German election. I was torn, like many other Germans, even those living in Germany, on whether it was even worth voting.
It’s been a little over a year I’ve worked in the traditional sense. The main reason for my break was this and some other things (in German), as well as this blog and my cards.
I think it is fair to say that it’s been a bit of an odd journey. Though, it was also very good for me, cathartic. I had a lot of time to reflect on the past, work through some things that have been lingering in the back of my mind for years and took a lot emotionally, and think about the things I want to be doing with my time.
Yes, it’s done. It’s standing (still, as far as I know) and it is a beautiful wall.
When I say we built it, I mean, everyone contributed, but my mum actually put it together. So she definitely deserves all the hand and back massages in the world. Also, it’s her first wall and I think, there are a few more to come. Not just in this house, but likely also for one of her many other projects. I make her sound like a wall-building machine (I mean, she is. I’m amazed!), but she also needed a well deserved break in between lifting bricks (13kg each) and jamming mortar in gaps.
