Hello there, I’m Kati.

This is what I wrote in

October 2017:

I finished school this year and have been travelling around since then. I took some awesome pictures the last months and have been dwelling on the idea of sharing them somehow, and after weeks of planning and thinking I’m ready to show you all.

If you love food, cultures, travelling, clothes…. I would love for you to join me on this journey.

New blog post every sunday 5pm, so keep your eyes peeled for that.

I have no idea what is going to happen.. but I’m exited!!

oh also, I love dogs.

March 2018:

You can see that that concept did not quite work out like what so ever. Now it’s just me writing down everything that happened each day during my time in Brighton, and me posting pictures that may as well have been taken on a Nokia 3310. I talk about food and complain about boys, the weather and well, food.

I don’t have a clue what’s going to happen but I am exited and love dogs.

June 2018:

Alrighty let’s give this lil page another update shall we. Well I’m back in good ol’ Germany and am now bored to death and this page is basically saving me from dying (most times). I literally have no clue what’s going to happen like no clue at all. My life could change tomorrow (that would be cool) but I’ll make sure to update you on it. I post when I’m bored which is turning out to be every single day or when I have to complain about boys (still), food, the weather and also since recently my weight and ear. So enjoy.

October 2018:

I live in Leipzig. I’m a student. 99.7% of this is pure crap. Enjoy the other .3%

Not complaining too much about boys anymore cause like, there are none in my life. Not so much about food either, cause I’ve actually gotten pretty good at cooking if I say so myself. Working on a THING, you’ll see. My new found struggles are money, night busses and the lights on my bike. So enjoy… I guess.

ps. just re-read the first ”abouts” and I still love dogs. I miss mine a lot!

November 2018:

just real quick I’ve given up the THING cause Uni is hard and I’m dumb.

October 2019:

Holy crap it’s been 2 years. I’ve been laying in bed since 8pm drinking tea, so clearly I am getting old. My tan is fading and the german weather annoys me A LOT. Uni only starts in one week so I have been serving people coffee these past days. Oh, had the best summer ever this year btw y ahora hablo espanol (with a wavy n) con fluidez. I turned 21, I haven’t played poker drunk (or found my hand twin) in Vegas (yet), I went swimming in many oceans, ate a ton of froyo, met some incredible people and I just bought plane tickets to the (insert: swear word for flipping) PHILIPPINES. 

Btw. I surely am dumb but uni ain’t that hard actually. My grades are pretty fantastico and you may have noticed that I did not really do the whole studying (student dying) last semester but rather did the student drinking. So cheers to my brains! šŸ»

I had to think really hard about what that THING was I gave up on. I remembered. Money is still a struggle, mainly because of the mentioned flights, night busses aren’t cause I don’t leave my flat past 7pm and I do now own lights but no bike. ps. I miss my doggos and can’t believe I used the word ‘dwelling’ 2 years ago, where did that come from? 

April 2020

Oh fun! Forgot about this. Greetings from me, someone who runs half marathons, social distances, attends zoom meetings, has been living with their parents for 6 weeks, celebrated their dogs birthday yesterday, seems to be dairy intolerant and currently procrastinates working on stuff for uni and going on a run by updating the “about” page on their blog.

Haven’t been working because travelling is now more illegal than cocaine and there is no one at the hotel. The trip to the Philippines and summer holidays are cancelled which is why I have been reading through last summer’s posts A LOT. There are security guards in front of supermarkets and clubs are closed. Events are cancelled, and my sister is rotting in her room watching Disney+. I’m wearing the same 2 pairs of (sweat)pants and sweatshirts every single day and toilet paper is back in stock- no yeast in sight tho. The environment is thriving and every now home- officing 40- something year old has turned into a carpenter. We meet friends on houseparty, alcohol consumption has quadrupled and every single influencer suddenly has a home workout to share and goes live on the gram. Banana bread and whipped tik tok coffee have turned into the food of the season and the himalaya is visible. Health care workers are everyone’s heroes and screen times are at an all time high.

We’ve come to the part of the “about” where I reflect on past paragraphs:

october 2017: travelling is not a thing anymore, we still don’t use the term “dwelling” cause we’re not that smart and the pictures I take might just get rewarded for being the ugliest ever. @me don’t know why you ever thought you could stick to a scheduled upload.

march 2018: that’s more like it. and I actually don’t have a single tiny clue what’s going to happen. Noone does. I am exited, don’t know what for and I love dogs.

june 2018: what she said. I don’t complain about my ear cause we’ve given up on her.

october 2018: my new found struggles: trying not to kill an elderly person by breathing, running up steep hills, working on uni stuff instead of updating the about page on the blog.

november 2018: not that hard but I sure as heck am dumb

october 2019: I do not speak spanish anymore, the Philippines are cancelled, I’m not working, money is not a struggle cause I have 0 expenses and my dogs are downstairs.

We’re gonna come out of this either ready to do an iron man, ready to open a bakery, ready for a strict diet or ready to attend AA meetings. Which one it’s gonna be for me depends on how much longer this is gonna go on for. *toasts with wine glass* šŸ·

December 2020

Well you got out, had the actual most incredible summer months and were thrown right back in. Just worse.
Almost ready for those AA meetings. We’re far from opening a bakery as I managed to mess up baking a simple 321 biscuit and we go on runs about 2 times a month now cause it’s cold and we don’t enjoy that.

Since I last updated this a lot has changed. I feel like I was an entirely different person between April and November and am now back at the exact same point where I was in spring.
There’s a second lockdown, death rate is at an all time high especially in Saxony. Corona is even more present and I’ve aquired quite the impressive selection of masks.
I’m not working anymore as cafes are shut (oh I had the best job with the best boss over the summer! I miss working there so much!!). It’s a week til Christmas and I’m rocking the same sweatpants all day, every day while lounging around in my new flat! That’s right I moved. I have the best flat mates one could ever imagine. (I’m currently in quarantine (voluntarily, as I will not be infecting family members this year). Today was the last day of uni and we have prolonged holidays as teaching online isn’t allowed. Shops are closed again and we’ve been supporting local restaurants by eating a lot of pizza while watching the football on the big screen. “We” being me and the longest tinder date in history. Lasted for about 6 months (I’m good, I mean I cried but we friends).

With all that said, 2020 has brought me love, confidence, anxiety, despair, heart break, laughter, confusion, stress, new friendships, good food, alcohol, worry, appreciation, 2020 let me grow up, experience feelings I’ve never felt before, do some crazy things I never thought I’d do, made me more confident in myself, taught me how to express my thoughts and feelings, brought a lot of pasta and tomato sauce and let me meet some of the most important people in my life that I loooove with all my grandma heart. As much as this year sucked so did I and there’s that.

Thank you 2020 for turning me into the person I am now. Sitting in front of my light therapy lamp, content.
