Such are the joys of sharing a flat – the giant rant

I recently started living together with a guy and a girl, sharing a flat. Both are in their mid 30s, both working professionals and both keen on saving rent since Wellington is pretty expensive. The guy lives half of the week in Auckland, which is nice, so most of the time it is just us girls. My flatmate is very friendly and she introduced me to some of her friends, but there is this one thing that I can’t ignore anymore and so here comes the giant complaining-rant. It won’t be nice and it won’t be short, so I dare you to read it :P Continue reading

On the lookout for other minimalists

Finding like minded people and talking to them in real life instead of blogging (which sometimes feels like shouting into a giant void) is one of my next goals.

I have never talked to a fulltime minimalist in real life before -all the “backpackers” excluded – but I have decided that I will find some here in Wellington to – for the first time in my life – talk about minimalism.

So if you are a minimalist and happen to be in Wellington or if you know somebody who is a minimalist or if you are interested in minimalism, just drop me a note in the comments or better yet send me an email and let’s meet up!

Casket girl saves the world

Today I was talking to some of my new friends, one of them had an accident recently and his arm was in a cast because of it which doesn’t stop him from lifting heavy things and me from fussing over him and carrying stuff for him instead.

So when he lifted up a couple of cups I was like “oh, you shouldn’t do that with your casket!” And he was like “my what?” while I got a huge lol from everyone in nearby and I was like “Well, the thing on your arm.” And he was like “That’s not a casket darling, I am not dead yet.” Continue reading

This blog will be on hiatus for a while

I have arrived safe and sound in New Zealand. I have settled down, found a job, an apartment, bought some furniture and progressed from a traveler to a resident once again.

A process like this costs time and energy and while figuring out the best way to go about things here, even though it is much easier than in Japan, it takes some of my creativity away from the blog.

Until I have the energy to write good content again I will therefore take a little break and enjoy some real life in the meantime.
