What am I doing?

Image by me from a Maurizio Cattelan exhibit which reminds me of me when I actually write a blog post.

Who knows. 80% of the time I have no idea what I'm doing. But here's the things I've been doing that I do know:

+ Yoga on my mat made of recycled wetsuits. Is yoga super popular now? Has it always been super popular? What made me start? I have no clue. I just did one day. And I haven't stopped yet and now I can do a headstand! 

+ Reading Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance - a memoir about a family and culture in crisis - making sense of America..deemed as "profoundly important" (agree), "essential reading" (agree), "riveting" agree. Vance takes you in to a part of America you think you understand and shows you how little you truly understand. 

+ Learning Deutsch (finally) with Herr Professor - lessons via skype. I couldn't recommend him more! 

+  Listening to Groove Armada's Black Lights album from 2012 and loving the 80's fun feel of it. And did you see Sing Street yet? 

+ Staying home as much as I can so that I can be within viewing distance of my real Christmas Tree.

+ Enjoying the instagram account for Season Evans - a quilter with the most skills. Her creations are beautiful.

+ Still pondering "Not Afraid of Love", an exhibit that I just saw in Paris by Maurizio Cattelan (image above) at the Monnaie de Paris. He's known for his satirical sculptures and was one of the most interesting exhibits I've ever seen. I can't begin to describe it. Please fly to Paris, see that and then maybe the eiffel tower or something. 

+ Feeling funny because my blog/instagram was featured in an article about swiss influencers where they discuss people buying Instagram followers. megalolz. I didn't know this was a discussion out there, but its interesting anyway. My Insta is more personal and not really for my blog - but I love all of you who I'm connected with there! (thanks for pointing that out Dimitri!)

What are you doing?

Friend! How long until you could do headstand? I cant seem to stick with yoga, but you have inspired me to try again. Also, how have you gone this long without learning German??
