feel the rush?

Now this is a nice morning, for a change! It’s official holiday, so i have neither classes nor work which I’m soooooo glad about;) Yes, i allowed myself to sleep in today, but only because I’ve been up until 3AM last night, doing stuff for the uni. however, having a nice, relaxed morning is really important for me in terms of happiness & keeping a calm mind. chai-coffee in bed is a nice way to wake up when my boyfriend’s not around!

 this is the best vegan chai-matcha blend i know! as those following me on Instagram already know, I’ve found this on Naschmarkt in Vienna, a place everybody should check out because it is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G.!!!

Yes, so I enjoyed my morning dirty chai already (chai with a little soymilk and an espresso shot! try it!) and am now listening to the latest Jimmy Eat World Album while allowing me the time to write this post..I really should do uni work instead of blogging but I just make an exception in order to prevent me from going crazy;)

I’ve really got an awful lot on my plate right now...besides the bachelor paper which I should be done with in one week’s time, the professors are loading more and more work onto us, squeezing everything possible in..here’s  what i have to do for only in the NEXT week! u understand why i need to prevent going crazy?;)

deliverables within next week only..

in-between that, there’s working at the library, attending classes and taking care of the future in terms of the internship and my upcoming move to Vienna! lots of document-stuff to be taken care of, but the new apartment is my number one daydream right now! 🙂

last week, I’ve been to Vienna twice: Once, to check out the apartment and the second time to sign my working-contract for the internship. I lost a lot of time with these things, but it was absolutely worth it!

oh my god, the apartment is like a dream coming true! it’s a old building in an awesome district of Vienna with a vegan shop opening just around the corner! the location is to die for, and so is the flat itself. I can’t stop thinking about how to decorate it and am just sooooooo excited!

this is the building my future-flat is in. gorgeous!

so you get an impression form Naschmarkt! 😉 HEAVEN!

it’s only 2 months until i’m moving and i’m sure time will fly by. especially, since i’m covered in stuff to do for the uni!

bachelor paper in progress…

IMG_2703

the maximum word count for the paper is 8,000 words. funny thing is, i’m struggling with not writing too much rather than having enough! there’s just so much I want to say, content wise. hard to make it make sense with this limited word count. but it’s doable, with a s**t-load of effort put in!

this week, i’ve been working in the library 3x. on top of all the other stuff, that is 😉

IMG_2618

i’ve been getting up EARLY in for my two Vienna days..getting to Vienna from my current home does take some time..ugh. glad to move there in order to sleep longer 😉

IMG_2659

in terms of healthy vegan stuff, Vienna is a paradise indeed. this is the “Popeye” smoothie I had after my appointments in Vienna which I got from a fabulous Juice Bar!

 

somehow, I feel I’m really growing up right now. You know, a proper full time job, my own place in another city, my Bachelor degree coming closer and closer..weird but I can’t complain!;)

still, what is really important to me is quality time with my boyfriend, family and friends. and my lovely Mindy!:)

One more thing: I got myself a REAL blender, finally!! 

Always wanted one and now with the b-day money…:D

it’s from Amazon, a Russell Hobbs mixer for only 33 Euros. Tried it today and it’s so great! that baby really got power!

IMG_2698

this will look so nice in my new flat!;)

4 Bananas and some filtered water…

banana massacre! 😉

IMG_2709

oh yeeeeees….


IMG_2711

soooo creamy..banana-dreams come true! 😉

I realize that this post was not very organized in terms of content..but hey, it’s just some insights into my life right now! and yes, I do feel the rush. but for today, i kinda enjoy it. along with my fabulous nana-smoothie!! 🙂

have a great day,

metamorphosis

i think i have seriously abandoned this blog.

how long has it been?

i cannot really give reason to my absence from the blogosphere, really. I can only say that once you start to let go, due to stress or too many other things on your mind, you really start to let it slip away for good.

i can’t even remember the last time i posted something here! but:

let a new chapter begin today.

i can’t promise i will post regularly, in fact i can’t even tell you the exact direction this blog will be heading towards.

all i can say is that i’ve chosen to bring this baby back to life and to using it as a valve for my inner life. i can however tell you that the focus here will be shifted a little away from the foodie-world. of course, in case i come up with some seriously delicious recipe i will not keep it from you, but i generally plan on writing about more that tasty vegan food from now on!

same same but different?

here’s a little recap on what has changed in my life:

well well. my fourth semester of Business Consultancy International has just ended and the summer break is on right now. the weather here however is veeeeery not summer-ish. yet. some days its freezing and i’m wearing my boots (!!!), the next day i’m melting in my shorts! heck.

my boyfriend & his family moved right next to my parents’ house! strange, you say? i thought so too. especially since I do NOT live there anymore!

but some time has passed now and I have to admit it’s quite convenient. i have the most important people right there living in the same street!

my mom adopted the cutest little miss doggy a few months ago. her name’s Mindy and she’s more than adorable! a little bundle of fluff, always excited and so much in love with her humans:)

(right now, our haircolors are almost matching!)

Mindy is quite little and very affectionate! she will never miss a chance to hop onto my lap:

about the band: we’ve been playing a good number of shows within the last year but right now we decided to cut back with live shows. we are focusing on recording our first album this summer and there is a lot to be done.

also, we shot our first music video some time ago. it’s currently in post-production cuz i’m gonna be doing stuff in a computer-created phantasy world! (yup, i’m excited. patience is not my strongest trait.)

we also have our own website now! i did some pencil & paper illustrations & hand-wrote the lyrics, so be sure to stop by and check it out here (click on “Lyrics” to see the drawings and words!).

oooh, and did you know about the tattoos I got?

here’s the two little ones, the picture was taken right after getting them done. the X is an ancient, african symbol for freedom, emancipation & independence.

the tiny “V” stands for vegan.

this is the third tat i call my own. i had it done on my 20th birthday. it’s simply a leaf and i cannot tell you what it means exactly. the idea of a leaf simply came to my mind one day in class and so i started drawing. the tattoo artist really did an excellent job here and i still smile every time i see it on my arm!

(strange pic, i know, but just so you see where exactly it is!)

so, that would be some of the news i can offer you.

i’m looking forward to spending more time here writing and excited about finding out about which direction this blog is headed to.

as said, from time to time i’ll just need to get some stuff off my mind and therefore will possibly write about it here.

 

right now, i just came home from a little get together with friends in honor of my best friend. she is leaving for one and a half months, so almost all of summer without her! 😦

she’ll be staying in Canada this time and i can tell you i will miss her a LOT. during regular university times we can’t spend much time together and i miss her a lot already when she’s in the country. so now i’ve been looking forward to spending time with her during the summer break…

she’ll have a blast in Canada, i’m sure of it, and therefore i’m happy for her, of course. but for selfish reasons i’m also sad she’s not with me. sometimes i’m just feeling like a three-year-old.

 

i think i should call it a day for this post, or should i just say “call it a post”? it’s almost 11 PM here and i have an Oh, I Taste The Queen show at 1 AM. yes, i said 1 AM.

this means i need to start making my hair look like a bird’s nest and have quite some face painting to do. these dots aren’t gonna draw themselves!

 

if you’re reading this it makes me happy. so thank you! ♥

i will update the about me page within the next days, too.

 

so long,

s.
