Midweek Thoughts

IMG_2414

It’s hard being a grown up sometimes. Choosing your path, living your own life. All of that is a beautiful journey, too, of course. But still, it is difficult.

I admire people who go to school, finish it and instantly know how they want to spend the rest of their lives. I’ve done some things before. And even though I like the way I am going right now, I have a certain feeling that I am far, far away from being where I want to be.
I want to keep growing and changing but at the same time I need safety. Something to hold on to and something I can always get back to if ,y adventures turn out to be a complete disaster.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” -Mark Twain

This quote is stuck in my head ever since I first read it. I want to. I really, really do.

I want to never stop chasing my dreams. X

Quickie

Not much to say today. This is me enjoying my after work coffee with almond milk (the BEST) before heading to a Biergarten (is there an English equivalent? Beer garden?) to watch GER vs. USA (WHICH WE WON! YAY!).

I’d definitely recommend reading Times They Changin’ latest post. Read it and then think about it. Just do it.

Hab nichts zu sagen heute. Feierabendkaffee mit Mandelmich, das beste Getränk der Welt und dann ab in den Biergarten zum Fußball gucken. Wir haben zwar gewonnen, aber Weltmeister wird man so nicht. Dennoch: Weiter so, Jungs!
Lest übrigens mal den neuen Post von Times They Changin’. Lesen, drüber nachdenken. Einfach machen.

Busy Times

1

Hello everyone! I know, it’s been forever. My life has been ridiculously busy the last few weeks and there was just no time to take photos or anything. I had my head filled with other stuff that required a lot of my attention.
I hope you guys forgive me!

My boy shot these ones today in a free minute when it was nice and sunny. The blouse is ZARA and I love the slightly transparent back because it displays my tattoos quite nicely. I love summer because I can show everyone my inked skin which is something I really like because I love and am proud of every single one.
I have plenty ideas for new ones but it’s a bit difficult to time with my work as you probably can imagine.

Sunday Thoughts

Call me childish but I want to change the world. You know, when I grow up. I want to save the world. Humanity, animals, environment, everything.
I wish there was a manual for how to save the world. Being a nurse and a vegan I feel like I am making a teeny tiny difference but I want to make something big. I want to make the world a better place for everyone and I am still trying to figure out how I am supposed to do that. Any tips would be appreciated.

On my decision to become vegan: I’ve been thinking about this for a very, very long time but admittedly lacked the final discipline to actually do it. After reading a lot of books and informing myself on the PETA websites (the German ones), I finally decided to go through with it about a month ago. No animal products in my food, no new leather things, no products that were tested on animals and so on. And so far I can tell you that this was one of the best decisions I have ever made so far. I keep reading things about it and that makes be more sure of my new way of life every day.

I know I can’t change the world over night and all by myself. But I want to make my life on this wonderful planet count and I will never stop trying to find a way to do that.

Sorry if this rather thoughtful post bored you. Do you have these kind of thoughts, too, sometimes? Oh, I’ve made a change to the header to make the design even more minimal and I do like it. I hope you do, too! X

Hello everyone!
Sorry for the ridiculous lack of posts last week but I was away with my nursing school class for the last 5 days and had no time or internet to post anything.
I am turning 22 today so no time today, too.
But I promise you: there’ll be a proper post soon! Stay tuned. X

April through my iPhone

It’s that time again! April went by pretty fast, didn’t it? Enjoy my Instagram photos of last month!

1
One of my Würzburg happy places. I had three of my tattoos made there. They’re just great.

2
Enjoying a little coffee/lunch.

3
BEST BURGER PLACE IN TOWN! If you ever visit Würzburg, keep your eyes open for “Burherheart”. Incredible.

4
Good morning, Alte Mainbrücke. That was a magical moment that I just had to capture.

5
Favourite breakfast. Strawberries, banana, granola and soy yogurt.

6
My baby stretching in our garden. She’s such a beauty.

7
Hitting more than 5000 Nike Fuel the other day. I love keeping track of my activity!

8
Yesterday’s outfit! Trousers and t-shirt by ZARA, denim shirt by Maison Scotch and of course vans. I couldn’t decide on a necklace so I just layered my favourite ones.

Show me your April! And you can follow my on Instagram if you like. The name’s @chasingwonders_ X

Here comes the sun

Wow, it’s been insanely warm the last couple of days. Before or after work the boyfriend and I just always chill on our balcony or in the park. You really have to remind yourself that it’s April, not July! I am absolutely loving this weather and I don’t want it to change. They say it will over the weekend.

These shots were taken over the last days. Having breakfast (soy yoghurt, quinoa/amaranth granola, bananas, strawberries, grapes = BEST EVER!) before my late shift and another day chilling in the park after my early shift and reading.
Oh, and I KNOW I’m wearing my hair like this forever and in almost every post but that’s because it’s my number one hairstyle. I have to wear it all back at work and the braids just add a little prettiness to quite a funktional hairdo! Have you been enjoying the early summer, too? X

Hello Internet!

1

Uh, the first one is alway tough, isn’t it? Well, hey there! I’m Katharina (old, long, traditional German name) and this is my blog “CHASING WONDERS”. I just thought for the first post I’ll do something like answering potential “Who the hell is that girl?” questions. Would that be okay? Not like anyone could answer, I know.
So. I am 21 years old and I am a German nursing student in the second year. I live in the beautiful city of Wuerzburg (I’ll tell you more about the city in an upcoming post) with my boyfriend, the most wonderful human being in the entire universe.
I am a HUGE fan of the blogging world so I decided to just take part in it. I love, love, love cats and owls and tattoos (got 8 myself) and English TV shows and good films and books and candles and a whole lot of stuff more. You know, I’m excited about many things in life and to me, all those small and big things are wonders. Wonders that make this amazing life as it is and if we choose to see those wonders as such the world can be a magical place.
So this is what this space is about. Showing you my wonders, small and big ones. In the language of the internet this is supposed to be a “lifestyle” kind of blog but let’s see where this goes, right?
You might wonder why I’m writing this in English. Even though German is my mother tongue I decided to be writing this blog in English. Firstly because it’s my favourite language to read, listen to, speak, think, everything! Secondly because I thought it’ll keep me trained in using another language than the one I speak everyday. It feels like a second mother tongue already to be honest.
