In theory life is all about balance. We know that – between work and fun, between healthy/fit days and cheat days, balance seems to be the concept that accompanies us throughout all our life. And I agree with that. I’ve never been a huge fan of the fanatics in any area. There are maybe “better” areas to be a fanatic…

The beauty of household chores

When coming home from a long day of studies or work the pretty last thing one often wants to do is a) ironing b) folding the laundry or c) scrubbing the floors. Yet, being kind of busy lately, that is mostly what awaits me (and you probably too). To be honest, I came to love it. Seriously. No one can…

Things to refrain from 4 – Fake Friends Esoteric Nonsense

Nowadays taking advantage of fellow people is as easy as one could imagine. In a world that is full of realism and facts, many tend to search for one or the other distraction, for something, that takes responsibility off their shoulders for a moment and lets them relax.

Time to move – but not feel lonely!

Moving, at the moment, is quite an important topic for me. I have already moved various times during my life  – I moved from the apartment in one part of Linz to another. Finding new friends wasn’t particularly difficult. I went to school, I grew up with them, we had neighbours, and, of course, I also had my parents. Being…

Making cleaning up fun instead of duty!

Cleaning up the apartment is something everyone of us has to do – even the lucky ones who have a maid (or a mum) who does the main things, we won’t get around mopping up, folding the laundry or washing the dishes from time to time. For many this is a tiresome chore, and they approach it as such –…
