    India is very interesting. It was the topic of one semester of my English course. We watched "Passage to India" and had to read "Heat and Dust" by Ruth Prawer- *insert weird Indian name here*. I'd really like to see a culture different from western civilisation, I have never been anywhere else than Europe and America. I am so curious about what studying will be like. What living on my own in the big city will be like. San Francisco Gay Pride was just great. It is very different from what it is like in Germany. The German gay prides are mostly just big parties. When I arrived in San Francisco, leaving the BART station at Powell Street, two lesbians passed me by, one looked at me, smiled and said: "Lots of lesbians around here." She was so right.The whole cíty was full of gay and lesbian people. An amazing experience, it almost felt as if we were the majority. The concerts, the rainbow-flags, the parade... Would have been more fun with some friends, though.

    Sure I remember you! It always makes me happy when people discover artists I adore. I saw Kaki King live in March. Probably the greatest concert I've ever been to, and definitely the most life-changing. Well... I am still waiting for the universities to either accept or deny my applications. Stuff will start in october, which means that I still have a month and a half for my favourite activities like... well... hanging around, basically. This is what I've done for the past 6 months. All my life, actually. I took a break from hanging around to see San Francisco Gay Pride and San Francisco Dyke march, furthermore Yosemite, Sequoia and King's canyon national parks and Los Angeles. I've been to Cologne and to Belgium and Hamburg Gay Pride. I was very much impressed by the Murals in the Mission. Guerrilla Art is so fascinating. And you? What have you done/ seen/ experienced? Greetings and... Peace! ;)

    I also agree with your 'about me' section. Funny enough I'm in Portland right now. I've spent the last week in a vegan co-op/interning at the rock'n'roll camp for girls. It was quite possibly the best experience of my life. If you'd like to talk more just message me!

    But if you had prevented it from happening, you wouldn’t even have known it could happen that way, right? So you can’t know how often you already succeeded. I have déjà-vus sometimes, but that’s a different category I guess. Iced green tea is good as well, but I like the whisky-like color of Earl Grey better, somehow. Well, most importantly, it should be cold. In Germany, you are allowed to drink beer when you are 16, but most people start consuming it when they are 14. Beer is the national beverage here, it is the basis of every party. I usually prefer wine or gin tonic, but on hot summer days, beer is more refreshing. I’d like to ask you if I’m allowed to ask random, but meaningful questions as well. Sounds like an interesting idea to me, and I have some on my mind. I hope you had enough sleep tonight, as I know that being tired can be awful both for you and your environment. I wish you all the best, and I hope that this day is different. Greetings.

    I can translate Swedish newspapers to German but can’t really speak the language which I think is kind of sad, but I’ve never had the energy to really learn Swedish, and it is probably more useful to improve my French and English. Plattdeutsch is not a dialect, it is a language of its own that is spoken in Northern Germany, but is unfortunately about to become extinct. However, I can speak it fluently and I love the sound of it. It also makes it easier for you to learn English, because the grammar rules are quite similar. What you talk about is what I meant by “your thoughts become disconnected and concentrated on that person”. I know that as well. And the rest is just longing, isn’t it? Longing is such a nice feeling. It’s bittersweet, like melancholy, but somehow brighter. And, different from melancholy, it can also be positive. Makes you smile from time to time. Your dream is strange.

    I think I can imagine what that feels like. Just when you want sleep so badly, you are kept from dozing off by thoughts that keep wandering through your mind. In that case, I just turn on the TV, usually some lame documentations, telenovelas or political talks. If possible, in a language I don’t understand, so I can be sure that it doesn’t keep me awake (usually some programs from the Netherlands or Spain or Poland work really well, German regional telestations are also uninteresting enough). Another thing I do when I can’t sleep is listening to classical piano music. I can only recommend Frédéric Chopin. If nothing works, I start counting prime numbers, a little bit more interesting than just counting imaginary sheeps. A friend of mine counts backwards from thousand, all even numbers in German and all uneven numbers in English. Swedish just sounds cool. I’ve already been there five times and know a lot of words.

    I never had such a dream. Well, I usually remember dreams when I wake up, but they never influence my conscious life very much because they never show something to me I’m not already aware of. Sometimes they leave a feeling that will stay for a day or two. If this is what you call “infiltrating”, the last time I had such a dream was tuesday night. “The Shipping News” by Annie Proulx is probably the rainiest and greyest of all books I know, the film by Lasse Hallström fails to transport this atmosphere. My preferred drink on the hottest summer days is iced tea, Earl Grey with exactly three ice cubes and lemon, but no sugar. A cold beer would be fine, too. Peace.

    What makes it such a bad day for you? I hope it's getting better. Bad days just pass, and then maybe a good day arrives. I'd sure like to answer your seemingly random questions. I would have liked to be born with Swedish as my mother tongue, because I like the sound of it so much and it is like a mixture of the languages that are always around me and influenced me most, German, English and Plattdeutsch, just with a pronunciation I think is cute. When I fall deeply for someone, I have this classical strange feeling in my stomach whenever I see that girl, it is extremely hard to describe. It is almost like the feeling you have when you are drinking alcohol or very hot tea or coffee, just stronger and deeper. It makes your fingers shake, your voice tremble and your thoughts become disconnected and concentrated only on that very person. And I start to be afraid of losing that person. Especially this fear will make certain to me that I am falling deeply for that person.

    not particularly good at it. Well, I guess someone has to do it, right? ;-) I'd really like to know what makes you like math. People who don't have Abitur and also people who have Abitur but don't want to go to university start an apprenticeship. I also think that best-ofs are not optimal to get to know a musician, especially because I think the album's flow is important. But "Canon" was the only stuff by Ani DiFranco I could get because I'm short on money all the time and can't afford buying CDs. Apat from that, my bad internet connection makes it impossible for me to download a lot of data. I'm not sure whether you're going to find stuff by Amanda Palmer at a public library, because her lyrics are what Americans call "explicit". Some radio stations in Great Britain refused to broadcast "Oasis", a song by her about rape and abortion. To me, Amanda Palmer is one of the most fascinating musicians that ever lived. I'm so glad I could see her live last year. Well, peace then!

    text was not - as promised by the copyshop - printed out when I arrived there at 9 am, tired and close to crying. But everything worked out in the end, and I'll have to present my work next tuesday. After school was over, we drove around town with our cars, honking and blocking the treffic circles. Riht now, I'm hanging out at school again, because I had to talk to my German teacher and I can use the internet here, which is faster than at home. I'm not so foucussed on the future, mainloy because I have no idea of what I could do with the rest of my life. All I know is that I'll go to universtity this fall. I had literature and medicine on my mind, but there are lots of opportunities. I used to be quite good in school, so chances are that I will be able to study anything anywhere, a fact that doesn't make the choice become easier. Your about-me section tells me that you want to study maths, which seems strange to me, because it would be my last choice after law. I hate maths, and I'm

    My last days were not so good and I really regret that I left school that way. Here, school is practically over in early march, after that, you just go to lessons of your "Prüfungsfächer", which means that on most days you go to school only for two or three hours and then leave again. You do that for two or three weeks and then you don't have to school anymore. In this free time you are supposed to learn, which some do but most don't. I had to write a scientific work which I had to hand in on our last day of school. I had one year to write it, but lazy as I am I started two weeks befor the ultimum. In the last week, I slept overall for just about 10 hours. I was in an extremely bad mood those days. The day before I had to give the work to my teacher, I saw Kaki King live, it was a wonderful concert, one of the best I've ever been to, but unfortunately my work was still unfinished, so when I came home (3 o'clock in the morning) I had to work till 6 am and got into trouble because my

    How were your last days? I can asure you that Abiturklausuren are much worse than anything you experience in American High Schools. In America, usually everyone gets his high school graduation, right? Here, only about 30 % make Abitur, the only certificate that enables you to go to university. I'd recommend you to listen to Amanda Palmer. That woman really is a phenomenon. Few like her, and those who do worship her. Her music isn't that far away from what you listen to, especially her solo stuff. You should give her a chance. I really like Ani DiFranco's music, but I only got "canon" which is kind of a best-of, I suppose? I don't know what text I would have chosen for that essay. WHen I think about that, lots of books come to my mind. Symbols are everywhere! I'd probably wasted my time chosing a topic and wouldn't have written anything. The good thing in Germany is: They give you two different texts and you can chose between them which is usually easy to do. Peace.

Über mich

I like sweaters. I read too many books at once. I'm gaybones for Miranda July, Carrie Brownstein, and Tina Fey, and I devoutly believe that Zooey Deschanel is a sex monster. My favorite poet is Edna St. Vincent Millay, although Mary Oliver is up there. I want to work in a library, and I want to visit Portland. I cut my own hair and write short stories.




"Do you have doubts about life? Are you unsure if it is worth the trouble? Look at the sky: that is for you. Look at each person's face as you pass on the street: those faces are for you. And the street itself, and the ground under the street, and the ball of fire underneath the ground: all these things are for you. They are as much for you as they are for other people. Remember this when you wake up in the morning and think you have nothing. Stand up and face the east. Now praise the sky and praise the light within each person under the sky. It's okay to be unsure. But praise, praise, praise."
