Fruit salad, word salad, same thing

List your top 5 favorite fruits. This is – by far – the most boring writing prompt I’ve seen in this place. I was considering not playing along, but here I am. Seriously. Nobody cares about anyone’s five favorite fruits. So this list is silly, and so is this post. But I’m traveling in AustriaContinue reading “Fruit salad, word salad, same thing”

This year is so slow…

It’s a crazy year. Well all years since I’ve moved to Germany in November 2019 have been pretty crazy, but for different reasons. This year is just, I don’t know, slow? It’s mid May, and I think we can count on one hand the number of fully sunny days we’ve had this spring. It hasContinue reading “This year is so slow…”

What public figure do you disagree with the most? Today’s prompt The Jetpack App finally improved their software to include a simple way to see how other people answer prompts.

Festivals. Concerts. I’m aware that they are again taking place. It’s just that, well, I don’t think it’s suchContinue reading “All the bands!”

I don’t mind driving in the dark, but it always messes up my sleep. Field work is coming up for the nextContinue reading “Finding a field office”

Your least favorite

What is your favorite holiday? Why is it your favorite? Today’s prompt I’m not a fan of most holidays. Don’t get me wrong. I love having days off, we should have more of them. However, the classical Christmas and Easter holidays I’m not really a big fan of. The thing is, everyone else also hasContinue reading “Your least favorite”

Of course I’ve camped…

The prompts are getting sillier again. I wonder who comes up with them. It’s almost as if a married couple with on productivity-oriented half and a spiritually -guided half make up most of them, but some days their angry teenager writes them. Today it was their six year-old… Have you ever been camping? Today’s promptContinue reading “Of course I’ve camped…”
