A Christkindlmarkt Photo Story

Oh it's almost December, and how do we crazy Germans celebrate that? Of course, with christmas markets (in Bavaria better known as Christkindlmärkte).
Only purpose of those things: drink and eat as much as you can so you don't feel the cold air around you anymore. (Well ok, to be fair there are also little booths where you're supposed to buy christmas ornaments and stuff like that. But who does that really? I know I don't.)

Here are a few pictures that I took today when me, my friend Nina and my dad (I know you all love him) went to the Christkindlmarkt in the small town that I grew up in.

Oh em gee like HAI and stuff ^_^

Hey you, blog reader dearest, how's it going?
Man it's fucking FREEZING in Munich these days, and what have I been up to, you ask? Well, except for trying to not freeze and die, I've been getting back into my YouTube mode. YouTube mood. Something like that.
As you may have noticed, I haven't been all that active there in the past few months, and right now I feel like it's the perfect time to do exactly that. Make more videos, and not for you (sorry) but for myself. Because after all, that's what I've signed up for.

Facing the truth here, I'm a vlogger, and that's what vloggers do. I think. Sharing little pieces of their life with others, and basically, capturing experiences, thoughts, ideas, and whatnot. I used to be really good at that, and I feel like I'm getting there again.
I made three videos on Sunday and Monday (for the PJ club, my main channel, and my German channel) and especially the German one... I don't know why, but it's been a long, long time since I've made a video that I really liked and that I can honestly be proud of, and it felt really good doing that. It's a one take video, kinda-sorta-improv comedy like, or something, I dunno, but even I find it funny, and judging from the comments I've received so far, people really liked it, whether they understand German or not (well, it's a really simple concept, so I guess that's part of why people who don't understand German even get it). Bottom line: it made me happy to shoot and edit the video, or all three videos really, and it feels like I'm back on YouTube with all my heart (awwwwwww.... insert cheesy music here).

Can I just say one thing? I fucking LOVE online videos, and I highly respect each and everyone who makes them. I had this thought while driving to my dad the other day, and seriously, making videos and meeting (e-meeting and irl meeting) the people who share this interest or hobby or whatever you wanna call it, makes me happy and basically just feels like a really good thing. I'm not sure where I'm going with this now, but maybe you get what I mean.

Yes, the e-life makes me act like a huge hippie sometimes haha

Well in other news, I've recently started to work as a nanny. Twice a week, and I'm taking care of my nephew, which is probably the best thing ever since I'm getting paid for something I'd like to do anyway. But since my sister told me they were thinking about getting a "regular" nanny, I don't feel to bad about getting paid for doing this. I work for them twice a week, and next week little Titus (I'll try to show him to you guys sometime soon because omfg what a cute thing!!) is gonna start a Taekwondo (spelling?!?!?!) class and I'll be watching and awwww this should be a lot of fun.
He's five years old btw, a huge Star Wars fan and is currently trying to work on his Jedi-powers. The telekinesis part isn't working all that well yet, but wow he's awesome with light sabers!!

This was a HUGE update, dearest blog reader, and if you made it this far, I'm proud of you. I really am.
By the by, I'm having fun with my blogTV shows, it's probably the weirdest thing I've done on the web so far, but it's also a lot of fun and hanging out with you guys, even if it's just in a chat room, is a great experience.

I also have some thoughts on YouTube Live, but who really wants to read about that anymore now? Yeah, thought so, I don't either.
(I'm totally hoping YouTube will start having a live-broadcasting option soon though!! That'd be kinda awesome, I think.)

Ok. Long story short, hi! How are YOU these days?

Glitter bombs in all of your faces,

Sleep deprivation.

[Before reading, please press play and listen to my favourite song of today. And yesterday. And probably tomorrow.]

Music Playlist at

I've had a total of 10 hours of sleep since Friday. Why? Not sure. Thinking about stuff, yes, but I'm not actually that stressed out about it. At least I don't think. Doesn't really matter, point being:
I effing can't sleep anymore.
I've had 2 hours Friday-Saturday, 5 hours Saturday-Sunday, and 3 hours Sunday-today. And what amazes me is that I don't even look as zombie-like as one might think (incuding myself).
I'm currently at my dad's, going back to Munich tomorrow, so there won't be much time to sleep during the day (as I expect to not get all that much sleep tonight either. I'm not even tired or exhausted or anything really), then I'm gonna have a show at 3am my time, so you can imagine how sleeping will go then. Should be interesting! If all else fails, I'm just gonna do a show Magibon-style and sit there and stare into the camera. Or something.
Which reminds me, why is she not doing blogTV shows? Seriously, I'd watch. Just to see why and how and all that. Can you imagine that? A live show, let's say 60 minutes, of apathetically looking into the camera. Occasional smiling. Not too much though. Because we need to keep it classy. Right? Right.
I'm not sure where I'm going with this though, so let's just end this train of thought right here.

Other things:
As you can tell from the photo, I've painted my nails silver metallic. Which is fun and also really strange because they're so shiny and I notice them a lot more in my peripheral vision than I'd notice them with any other nail polish colour. Because, well, they're shiny and stuff!!!
So yeah. I manage to distract myself with my own freaking nails. Haha what an exciting life!!

And I shall end this post on that note. I guess.
I hope you're all doing extremely fabulously well and stuff, and may it rain kittens, covered in glitter, all over you!!

It's November already! (A post with lots of brackets. For fun.)

Can you believe it's November already? Yeah, me either. Wow!! The year is almost over, there have been a lot of things happening lately (and for once I'm not talking about me me me me me, but about world-things, dearest reader. And I'm sure you all know what I mean by that. Just for the sake of not over-mentioning it after the past 24 hours I shall not speak of the soon-to-be new US president and.. oh. Guess I just did. Nevermind then. [For the record: I'm happy about how things turned out there.] Closing those brackets now.) and I'm sure there will be more before the year is over, but let's just focus on the important stuff here for a bit, k?
And yes, by important stuff I mean mainly myself. Ha. Ha. Didn't see that one coming, hm? Yeah, I thought so.

So!!! I'm sure you're all dying to know what I've been up to lately. Yes, that's what makes the world go 'round. Or something like that. (Sometimes I try to use little lines that seem to be fitting English expressions, and as soon as I've written them down I re-read them and think "what an idiot!!!!!!!!!!". I refuse to delete that though. It's more fun like that, I suppose. People that I chat with know what I'm talking about here.)
So!!! (Again.)
I've been trying to catch up on online things, have watched a shitload of videos (I totally reached the 17,000 this week, woop!! [I'm a loser. Obviously!!!]), have been reading up on all the things going on in my reader (and I want to apologize for being so comment-lazy on blogs lately, it's just all so much!! And I get all impatient and just browse around and then end up somewhere else and... yeah. You know what I'm trying to say here, yes?) and on top of that also started a scheduled show on blogTV. Yes. I know. It's weird to me as well, but I've been thinking about this for a while, and even though the thought of having an actual schedule for this freaks me out a tiny little bit, it just makes more sense to me like this. For everything else, there is still Stickam, and I like when people do shows on a schedule, so why should I be too chicken to have one myself? (I am extremely exaggerating here, but it's my blog, so why not.)
Point being, I thought if I actually did this blogTV thing, then I'd need something to keep me there. I've worded that weirdly, but what I mean is: if I don't have something that kind of forces me to do things, I might just forget about it in two days and do something else. Hence: schedule. (For your interest, said schedule would include shows Tuesday and Thursday, 9pm EST each. Aaaaand maybe randomly as well, you can subscribe there via e-mail and get notifications though, and follow me on Twitter and blah blah whoring myself blah blah, you know how this goes.)
So far, I've done two shows, one last Saturday to test things out (meaning my camera and microphone. And my ability to actually do a show to be honest.), and that was to my own surprise a lot of fun! For some reason I've had a whole bunch of people in my room even though I didn't promote it really, got raided by lovely 4chan-folks, and all together it was just strange and odd and fun all at once.
The other show was yesterday, election night, and just as I expected, it was a much smaller group of people, but just like Saturday a strangely fun experience as well!
So the next show will be tomorrow at 9pm EST, and I swear I'll stop talking about this, like NOW, but it'd be cool if you'd maybe stop by, say hi, or something. Now you should know I'm not much of an entertainer. I don't see these live broadcasts as real shows, and more of an opportunity to talk to people, communicate basically. This is the e-world, right? And since the e-world is an incredibly large place, it's nice to have some corners where we can actually hang out together. And that's how I see these shows as well. So if you're up for a little chat... I know I am!

But enough of that now.

I'm still struggling with my internet connection (I've told you, things aren't over yet. I wonder how long it will take until I'll have the connection I'm actually paying for!!) but besides that, things are good!! I'm embracing autumn, sometimes it already smells like winter outside, and I can't wait to see the first snowflakes!!

And to end this on a rather mushy note:
I can honestly say that I'm really happy right now. I can't even put into words how thankful I am for some of the people that are a part of my life, and no matter how far away they might be, in a way they're very close to me (a physical distance has nothing to do with feelings if you ask me), and I wouldn't wanna miss knowing them for anything in the world <3

I shall update you more frequently in the near future, dearest blog, but for now I want to leave you, dearest reader, with rainbows, kittens, glitter, occasional confetti-showers and cupcakes all over the place.
