The 12th anniversary

Earlier this week something completely randomly and not at all in context reminded me of a conversation I had with my mother when I was 12 years old. During that conversation she made a throwaway comment at something that wasn’t intended to hurt me, but back then it did and I remember thinking about it […]

Things I would like

This isn’t a new year’s resolution and it’s probably a quite #firstworldproblems kind of post. It all comes down to wanting to change things without changing too much and at the same time trying to take charge of life I guess rather than months passing by without me barely noticing. Or maybe not change, but […]


It’s easter and with that almost four full months of this year. In some way it feels like this year had just started yet on the other hand so much has happened that I still feel like I don’t even have the time to breathe. And that’s making things difficult seeing I’m almost always stressed […]

Why does Facebook recommend someone to me that it cannot know I know?

For the past four months Facebook has consistently been recommending one person to me. Unlike some other irregular suggestions this is actually someone I know, but I can’t figure out why Facebook would even know that I know this person. Back when I still lived in Germany I spent six years doing voluntary work with children. The […]

Gaming memories – Condemned

Some of the recent nightmares I’ve had were sort of related to this moment in Condemned though the game most certainly isn’t the reason they have occured. I’m still not sure why I bought and played the game. I don’t like scary films or scary books, but particularly not scary games. For some reason I […]

The rise and fall of a superhero on Twitter [@DMLFury]

Twitter is great for many reasons, but reading Drew’s Nightshift adventures wasn’t something I’d seen before. And it was kinda awesome. Oh and shameless plug, he was also the first #TwitLight participant two years ago! You can read about that here – Who are you, @FrustratedFury? Though he’s since changed his name.. Did you know […]

Woah, I’m tall! Wait, why is the floor wavy?

Last week my glasses finally broke and I ordered new ones. On Monday I was told that there was an unexpected delay. Thanks, Boots, for not phoning to tell me my glasses have been delayed to next week. Not like I expected more with the amount I’ve spent. # However, as I had to get […]

#TwitLight is coming back

I’ve recently mentioned Twitter in a few posts: This is what Twitter does for me Have I unfollowed you on Twitter? Here is why. 50000 tweets later.. and I’m still here! #TwitLight ran from April to August 2009 with 29 participants and I loved it, but it ended up becoming too much work even with […]


It’s curious that I wrote a post less than a week ago on how I’m “more conscious about sleeping at night and now can’t sleep in darkness as I worry someone will think it is empty and attempt breaking in.” I also said that I wasn’t too bothered about this at this time and that […]

Broken glasses

It’s been three years and seven months since I last bought a new pair of glasses which I only remember as I blogged about it at the time. With those glasses it was the first time I was discovered to have astigmatism, but my overall eyesight appeared to have improved since the previous pair I […]
