Not the best ‘first’ attempt

For the regular reader here it will be no surprise to read today that I have had my fair share of mental health struggles over the past fifteen or so years. In my early twenties, when I started having my first anxiety attacks, I had no clue what was happening to me, as I struggledContinue reading “Not the best ‘first’ attempt”

We made it to one

Yesterday’s goal was to make it to the Munich botanical gardens. We utterly failed, due to sickness in the family. Today, we had a bit of a second chance, as the relative’s health improved dramatically. Could we. Mayve today? We utterly failed again. We did, however, go to the Freising botanical gardens, and they areContinue reading “We made it to one”

Better luck tomorrow

The pentacost weekend is always a nice one, as it’s longer than the others. That extra added Monday off is great. (Perhaps I should consider working four days only…) This weekend, we invited my father-in-law over to stay with us for a couple of days. He’s a busy man and lives far away as allContinue reading “Better luck tomorrow”

I explained to her that I had had a massively unproductive week, or at least that’s what it felt like to me. Then she asked me what had kept meContinue reading “Another week in ecology (2023 – Issue 1)”

The dick move

For the past couple of days, my blog traffic was lower than usual. I don’t really care all that much about raw reader numbers, but the App I write with displays them, so I can’t help but notice. The drop was over fifty percent, which is hard not to notice. I immediately started looking forContinue reading “The dick move”

All the bands!

What was the last live performance you saw? Bad Bunny – July 2019. (So what?! I liked it!) I love live performances of all kinds. It’s one of the things I’ve missed most during the pandemic. 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!”

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”

Oh no…

I think the downward spiral starts today… What are your favorite emojis? Today’s prompt… After days of wonderful prompts, that made me think about life, life’s choices, emotions, and what moves me as a person, we’ve made it here. Enough of that deep bullshit. WordPress can’t take it any longer. What are your favorite emoji’s.Continue reading “Oh no…”
