over the edge

The new life I’ve grown to love is coming to an end. No whining anymore, I have to act. I was assigned to another module I didn’t like? Then I should use my free time to do what makes me feel alive, photograph as often as I can. Make progress with my exchange semester plans. People don’t care about me and I’ll be alone at the end, everything will be lost when I’m back in autumn? So be it. But in...

02 January 2017

I’m supposed to do a hundred things for uni, but I’m treating myself some extra days of vacation instead. Probably sounds familiar to the most of you. Anyways, today was a lovely day for the following reasons: My love, Robin and I had late breakfast while the sun was shining through the big living room windows, flooding the apartment with a warm glow (I should have taken a photo of that, damn).

A friend and I decided to ascend a floor...

a snapshot by Robin – I love what he captured here: me looking 100% unglamorous, but happy and comfortable Today was amazing. Yesterday’s tears and overwhelming loneliness seem like a surreal nightmare to me now.

It’s the first time I voluntarily spent so much time with someone (besides my boyfriend) during a day...

Happiness, Anxiety and Late Night Talks

It’s a warm Saturday afternoon. I meet up with the lovely Swiss-Portuguese blogger Ines in Berne. We sit by the river; the autumn sun warms our faces while we chat about all the world and his brother. Unfortunately, I have to leave pretty early – I have a client shoot with a really cute middle-aged couple in a wonderful garden in my town later in the afternoon. The evening before, I went to a photography exhibition with my flatmate. I was so happy when he...
