Subway Thoughts

I scroll through my feed And see Things I’ll never be I ‘like’ But I don’t really I play the game we all play Move through this world in the same way Say that which I’m expected to say And know This isn’t how it’s supposed to go Not the seeds we were meant to…

What Kind Of Dancer Am I?

I’ve given this topic a lot of thought recently. It’s the first question you get asked when you tell someone you dance for a profession. Choreographers want to know, agencies want to know but is it really that easy to place yourself into one category of dance? This past year I have done more and…

Friends

Friends. For those fortunate enough to have friends, they will shape the way you live your life, how you treat others and even how you treat yourself. I’m glad to say I am one of the fortunate ones out there to have friends. Real friends. Friends who stay awake till 4 in the morning to…

My Own Personal Hell!!!

or better known as ‘Flat Hunting’ Currently the actual bane of my life, the thorn in my side, the splinter under my fingernail and sand in my eye!! To better understand my frustration at the moment I will give you a short summary of what you should expect when hunting for a flat in Berlin!…

I’m back!

I haven’t wrote anything here for a while. The elephant in the room would say it’s because the last post I wrote was a tribute to my late Grandad and trying to write anything witty or superficial after that seemed somewhat wrong.  Of course thats only one excuse really. I could say that my plans…

Settling In

Tomorrow I begin my third full week of work at the Friedrichstadts Palast and whilst each day seems to be so long, the weeks have actually flown by. Suddenly, I’ve found myself settled into work here. Something that in the beginning seemed so far off from happening. My first few days are a blur of…

FIRE!

Ok, so I said in my last blog that Moms visit was ruined slightly, the reason being that there was a fire in the flat above. Not an ideal start in my new flat to be sure! Before I reveal the events of the night let me first say that neither myself or my Mom…

Mom comes to Visit :)

Exactly what it says on the tin! I spent a whole day doing all my washing, making sure the towels were clean and the bed sheets were fresh, I cleaned the kitchen and the bathroom and I even borrowed my neighbor David’s vacuum cleaner for the occasion. The queen herself would not have received better…

Today I Saw A Chav…

… On the U-Bahn going from ‘Potsdammer Platz’ to ‘Nollendorf Platz’ and i suddenly thought looking at this girl with scrapped back hair, gold hoop earrings and excessive make-up ‘ Wow, this is the first Chav I’ve seen since i moved to Germany!’. HOW AMAZING IS THAT!!! It inspired me to get my act together…
