MUSIC MONDAY: SZA

Music Monday is a new category I want to introduce for all the “Schreibtischhelden” aka “desk heroes” that have a hard time to kick off the week at work and need some inspiration and motivation. You might wonder what a “Schreibtischheld” or “desk hero” is? I know it’s really bad English and might not make sense to you, if your native language is not German. But hey, this is what the blog is for: It’s about international understanding and learning long ass German words that sound weird and that you can’t translate in any other language, right?!  Read more “MUSIC MONDAY: SZA”

The Plastic Age

On June 8 was “World Oceans Day“. This year’s theme was “Healthy Oceans, Healthy Planets” pointing out the plastic pollution in our oceans.

This is a topic really close to my heart. I love being at the beach and enjoying the ocean like many other people do. It is a perfect place to connect with nature. I’m sure a lot of people feel like this. Unfortunately, most of us don’t connect the moment we buy take-away wrapped in plastic, which we only use for one second and then throw it away, with plastic pollution in our oceans.

International Worker’s Day

Happy International Worker’s Day! This is a traditional European spring celebration and also in many other countries around the world a celebration of laborers and the working classes. It has its origin in the labour union movement of the Industrial Revolution, and is closely tied to the eight-hour day movement, which advocated eight hours for work, eight hours for recreation, and eight hours for rest. This is a true luxury and we tend to forget it. I mean, I get it. Nobody is really into Mondays, but at least we know that we can finish work after eight hours or that we’ll get paid for the long hours we’ve been working and “TGIF” only exists because we know that we’ll have our free weekend.
