I've done it again.
I've packed my bags once again and moved to another country.
And this time it's for real.
Those of you who know me know that I spent half a year living in Los Angeles and half a year living in Atlanta. And now I moved to the U.K.! Cause now I'm still able to live and work here without applying for a visa.
Anyway, I got accepted at the NFTS in London (okay, not London directly, but I doubt any of you have heard of Beaconsfield before) and am now doing a 13-month diploma course in Assistant Directing!!!!! Still can't quite believe it myself, but for whatever reason I got accepted at one of the most prestigious film schools in the world. So, for the next 13 months I'll be living in the U.K., and if all goes well I'd like to stay for a wee bit longer (please don't kick me out.)
I packed all my stuff from my old flat, left 90% at my dad's and flew over with only one suitcase full of clothes. It's like I'm living a minimalistic…
I turned 27 years old yesterday, so I thought I'd write up some (cliché and random) things I've learned over the years.

It's okay to be different.You'll have friends who are still living with their parents, and you'll have friends that just bought a house themselves. You're now at the age when everybody seems to get married. Invest in a nice cocktail dress, or two.Everyone has this one friend that has been backpacking through Australia.Drink water while drinking white wine (or any alcohol).Grilled cheese is the best meal to eat when you come home after having a couple of drinks.Spend your money on travelling instead of technology.Dreams change. Don't cling on to things if they don't make you happy anymore.Don't be emotionally attached to your hair. It'll grow ba…
Ladies and Gents, Boys and Girls, a big Hello from your favorite German!
I hope you're doing well and had a lovely weekend. I for one can't believe that it's been three weeks since I moved here, feels more like three days. Time has flown by, it's only four weeks until I fly home for the biggest party of the year (if I'm still alive by then) and it's slowly getting chillier outside.
Autumn, I heart thee.
Books, cozy socks, coffee, candles, walking through fallen leaves. What could be better?!
Anyway, here's a quick roundup of the past two weeks.
I got the amazing opportunity to go to a Sherlock Event in London with Mark Gatiss, Steven Moffat and Sue Vertue. It was pretty cool.I was sitting on the back of a bicycle for the first time in my life. Yay for this new method of transportation.Caught a fever and massive cold thanks to the amazing British weather.Thanks to a workshop at school I now know that script supervising is hard work.Cider costs 1.5 GBP a…
