I survived the introduction week in uni in Lucerne! Actually it was totally chill, but I did get a glimpse of what they’re going to expect of us and I know that it’ll be very challenging. It’s quite fascinating to notice how I try to find out what they want and adapt to it; just a week has gone by and I’ve already started to think a bit differently.
Also, I moved to Lucerne and my roommates are super nice. I really can’t wait to get used to my new life and get to know everybody around me. I hope you had a wonderful week <3
A last photo through my old window. I spontaneously decided to move to Lucerne today and have been procrastinating both taking today’s photo as well as packing.
Today was a chill day. I finally took up editing and blogging again. It’s SO MUCH FUN when you don’t have to wait ages for your laptop to react. Also, I felt so comfy that I didn’t bother using my contacts so many might see me with specs for the first time :P (Edit: oops, just noticed that I also wear them in the airport photo)
Today, on my way back home from the welcome ceremony of university, I looked at the hills and mountains surrounding Lucerne and realised once again how blessed I am.
I live in a beautiful, safe city and get to study what I dreamt of. I’ve found my passion. I live a life I love and I’m incredibly happy. How many people on Earth can claim the same?
Someday I want to create something that brings more justice to this world. In the meantime, I’ve set up a campaign for my birthday at charity: water to change the lives of a few by making sure they get access to clean water. Do you want to be a part of it?

100% of the donations go directly into clean water projects! Every amount counts. Help me help others – it’s an amazing thing to do <3
I totally forgot to post this one from last Tuesday. Took it after uni when I reached home, exhausted after a long walk.
I have those huge windows and an inviting white wall in my room in Lucerne. They tempt me to stay inside after a long day and take simple shots, playing with light and shadows.
This is my first black and white photo. I literally don’t know anything about it and never understood its magic, so I used to avoid it. But now I think it’s time to learn as much as I can, no matter how interesting it seems at first sight (sounds like uni is already making me more open-minded). Who knows, maybe I’ll fall in love with it.
I’ve changed a lot during the last few years, but I guess there’ll always be a constant: I’m not a “group person”.
It seems like a large part of my class is integrating and it’s just not my thing to participate in group conversations and do stuff extroverts do. It’s a bit frustrating. But then, four years ago I was in a similar situation and it turned out fine – so I shouldn’t be too worried, I guess.
Are there more introverts experiencing that? Or are you rather an extrovert enjoying those situations?
My studies haven’t even really started yet and I already feel like who I am and my life are unraveling. Big changes are coming, but I have no idea what I’m supposed to expect.
I re-edited this photo to try a new technique in Photoshop. I know it’s far from perfect, but I definitely feel like experimenting more editing techniques in the next few days/weeks :)
Saw some familiar faces tonight, had some dearly missed conversations and it made me feel so much better. <3
Autumn has officially started yesterday (I always thought it starts the 23rd of September, today – my bad!), so I felt like taking a moody photo. It’s my first composition and there’s SO MUCH to learn, but I really can’t wait to explore all the possibilities! <3
So today I turned 21 and spent the afternoon with wonderful people. It made me so happy to see them all united <3 of course I couldn’t help but to bake several vegan cakes from the amazing Chocolate Covered Katie :D
They were also eager to help me out with my campaign at charity: water. I’m so grateful for their support!
I still have to add their donation to the website, but with their help, I’ve raised 70% of my goal. That’s awesome! You can help me to achieve the goal of raising 777$ and help 25 people getting clean water! It’s still on for a couple of weeks.
100% of the donations go directly to clean water projects in Africa :)) help me change the world one step at a time!
