Broke in Berlin

Here are some ways you can get your cash flowing back in instead of out. WARNING: Methods include might include fragments of asceticism.

Unwillingly Expat in Berlin

I hadn’t called my family and friends in England for days, so I started writing letters – this was in the late 90’s when it was exceptionally expensive to make outbound calls and mobile phones were the size of hot dogs and weighed as much as bag of marbles…

Bilingualism and The Importance of The First Language (In Life & In Therapy)

Today, thanks to the globalisation there have been more and more people from different countries and continents intermingling with one another. This has lead to a rise in international marriages and couples as a result more and more children are born into a family with mixed heritages and are raised bilingually. Although most parents choose to raise…

Crazy Not Crazy! What it Feels Like: Emotional Instability

Hi guys. So today I’d like to discuss what it feels like to live with emotional instability as I have been living with it for a while now (like my whole life). A lot of people have thought me to be crazy. I’d say in a way they were right. In a way. Meaning if you look…

Germany, Land of the Pimps – How Sex Workers Are Really Getting Fucked

  When we think of Germany today, we think of beer, the Elbe and lederhosen. Unfortunately that is not all we are known for. As soon as prostitution became legal in 2001, Germany has been widely nicknamed “Der Zuhälter Europas” which translates to “Europe’s Pimp” due to our increasing sex industry. And although the exact number…

Black or White?

For many people the question is real – am I Black or am I White? But the answer is simple. You are both! And yet you are challenging the most conformed norm in our society, the One Drop Rule! Admittedly, it isn’t always easy to lead a mixed life, especially when the racial rules of who belongs and who doesn’t have been bent and changed multiple of times over centuries and can change on what feels like, a daily basis.

I Got Braids and People Are Not Happy…

Hi everyone! I wrote a whole text here about the hate I’m getting for wearing braids although I’m pale. But now the text is forever lost so instead I’ll just post the pics here and let you decide what you think of it! 

My Tragic Side Cut Experience

I once met a girl on heroin whom i shared a room with in hospital. She was pretty beat up from her operation and probably from her withdrawal symptoms. At first we really got along. She was mixed too, had died her hair red, rocked a side cut and loved my curly turquoise hair. It…

The New Hated Minority – Neo-Nazis & What To Do About Them

As you might have heard there is a new wave of Neo-Nazi demonstrations going on all over Germany. But these AfD supporters do not want to be put in the “Nazi-Schublade” any more. Their new trick is to make people believe that their racist views are not Nazi-like at all. They take our New Age…

Mixed Race & Mental Health

Obviously this is a controversial topic. Talking about mental health issues is already quite taboo but in connection with race, it makes it all the more difficult and unnerving to talk about. Still, it is important to me to spread awareness about this issue. This is definitely old news but there is still so much…

Kinky Hair & Exotic Looks – The Fetishisation of Mixed Race Women

I don’t quite know how to start this post, so I’ll dive right it. I know from experience that white people and black people like to fetishize mixed race people. It goes so far that black people are starting to get surgery to make their eyes look blue and getting skin bleaching and white people…

Omnism – A Religious & Spiritual Journey – Part I

So, today I decided to write about my religious journey as it has taken such a long time  to find a suitable name for what I believe in and how I believe in those things. Firstly, i wasn’t raised in any sort of religious way. The closest I came to Christianity as a child was…
