q&a – uni, work, whales, and living in berlin …

The long awaited Q&A blogpost is finally here. It took me a while, because I’m currently working on doing less and slowing down. I don’t know if it is the end of year hustle, or if I just had a bit too much on in the last few weeks, but I oftentimes feel like I’m trapped in a hamster wheel and still don’t get everything done, although I’m seemingly going nonstop. Anyways, that’s probably the topic of yet another blogpost. You’re here for the Q&A.

vegan mac & cheese πŸ­πŸ‚πŸ•Έ

Long time no see … – am I still allowed in here or have I been excommunicated?
I’ve taken a good ol’ summer break that quickly turned into a late summer break and then into a full blown “summer until early autumn”-hiatus. We’ve been back from our ~ summer holiday ~ for almost two months now and although I had planned on getting back into blog stuff right after our return, I had quite a lot of other work on and had to postpone all blog related activities.

So although summer doesn’t seem that long ago, we’re in the middle of autumn already – my absolute favorite season – and I’m in a real Halloween/Spooky Season Mood. So I made vegan mac & cheese the other week and added a Halloween themed (pumpkin) twist.

journaling etc. πŸ“–✨

I’ve been meaning to write this blogpost for months now. But it’s just like it used to be with essays in University: I don’t feel like I could ever cover all there is to talk about and fathom the topic in its entirety – … so I don‘t even see the point in trying. That’s where I’m currently at with the very broad topic of ~journaling~.

Journaling/writing/reflecting with pen and paper, whatever you want to call it, means something different to everyone who actually journals/writes on a regular basis, I’m sure. It‘s very personal so there are obviously things I don’t want to and won’t share … but what to talk about then?

vegan oatmeal cookies 🐒🌾πŸͺ

You all probably know by now that I love a cup of tea (make that iced tea with oat milk during summer) and a good homemade cookie or biscuit.
I love trying out and experimenting with new recipes – but I usually fail to follow any recipes I find on other blogs or in books and instead make up my own. That’s also how this recipe I’m sharing today came about. So far, I made these cookies twice and they turned out a little different every time. Different, but so, so tasty! With a hint of coconut and a caramel-y flavour. πŸ‘€

my evening routine 🌝 πŸŒƒ

Ever since I shared my morning routine with you a few weeks ago, you’ve been dying to hear about my evening routine as well, right? … Right? … Hello?! 😬

My ~ evenings ~ usually start at around 6pm – that’s when I try to be home from work, or call it a day when I’m working from home. The last thing I do before getting in relaxation mode, is clearing away my work stuff, meaning I organise my desk so that I can start again fresh and with a tidy space the next day. This helps me to a) stop thinking about work (because it’s literally out of my sight) and b) to wind down a bit, since organising my space and clearing away things helps me relax. 🐭

books i’ve read in may πŸŒžπŸ“š

It’s the end of June as I’m writing my “May Books Blogpost” – whoopsy. Summer and high temperatures like we’ve been having them in Berlin lately, always really slow me down. Where I’d usually be buzzing with energy and ideas, I feel like an uninspired blob as soon as the thermometer hits >29°C. So you might get the June books blogpost in December, who knows. Although summer seems like the perfect time to read, the opposite is the case for me. I just want to lie down, drink iced tea and close me eyes, as my brain turns to mush in the heat. I read quite a bit in May—but don’t expect too much from next month, just saying. 😏
As always: The order I’m talking about the books is not a rating.
