I’m back in Germany! I can’t believe my year in England is already over. It went by so fast it literally feels like it was a dream. But I’ve experienced a lot, and I’m sure I’m a different person than I was a year ago. Now I’m in a weird transitionary period I’m not quite sure what to do with. But so far I haven’t felt bored, both for good and bad reasons. It’s great to spend some time with my family and friends who I haven’t seen in a while. I was home a few times the last year, but I also missed things, and it’s different to be back for good now, even though I still can’t quite believe it.
In less important news, my email subscriptions stopped working, and I lost my subscribers when I fixed it in case you didn’t see my psa last time, so if you were subscribed, you’ll have to resubsribe, sorry for the inconvenience. <3 (Or, you know, just subsribe anyway, since emails only go out for post notifications I can definitely promise there won't be too many haha)
I also have a few last spaces left for guest posters for Shattering Stigmas, so let me know if you’re interested!
‘Round the Web
In this week’s random links…
…I stumbled upon The woman who gave birth for Hitler, which talks about someone who was part of Hitler’s breeding programme, and it’s just all kinds of chill-inducing but also fascinating. Apparently one of the members of Abba was one of the “Lebensborn”??? And many babies probably didn’t even know they were part of the programme later on… seriously creepy.
…I read this interesting article about Goals vs. Systems, which talks about how it may be more beneficial to follow systems than to strive for goals sometimes.
…I also found this article called Friends You Can Count On, which talks about the interesting paradox that your friends almost always have more friends than you do and how it is used to calculate how fast diseases spread (it will make sense when you read it… probably).
