the weather is becoming warmer and it’s finally fun to go outside again. Following spending more time in the sunshine comes rediscovering old passions or even finding new ones. Personally I’ve been revisting some places I enjoyed being some time ago and I’ve started to enlargen my creative horizon.
I have always known Rammstein, they are the biggest band here in Germany, and they have been around since I was born basically. But I gave myself a chance to listen to their albums, watch their music videos and recorded live shows. And honestly I am a bit in love. They just published their newest album which is untitled and I even managed to see them live on stage last week. (Caution though their genre is industrial metal/ neue deutsche härte and it will definitely not be for everyone’s ears, also their videos and lyrics contain potential schock value, so….).
After falling into a hole of Rammstein- obsession I also checked out Richard Z. Kruspe’s (their guitarist) sideproject Emigrate. And it’s great. Industrial rock, metal elements, electronic sounds and famous features (Cardinal Copia of Ghost, Lemmy,….).
Matt Haig has become one of my favourite writers. Currently I’m reading “reasons to stay alive” and beforehand I read his newest work “notes on a nervous planet” which spoke deeply to me. It’s concerning with anxiety and how the society and times we live in influence us and our behaviour and feelings. Covering social media, work environments and the general never-ending progress of us as a species – the book really it home.
watching youtube is so relaxing to me because i can chose who i want to see and when. My current favourite ones are Ally (she talks about mental health, self care and her cat!!) and Jenny. Jenny focusses on zero waste fashion and lifestyle and I deeply enjoy her whole aesthetic.
Podcasts are a relatively new thing I have been getting into. Since I rely on public transportation, it’s nice to have someone to listen to. At the moment I still love the Gal Pals Pod with Riley J. Dennis and Neonfiona who both talk about (queer) politics, gaming, pop culture and their life as fiancées. My more spiritual side is deeply loving the astro-hotline podcast by Tess aka astrogrlz. They make horoscopes and inform about general planetary events by still being entertaining and true.
my favourite form of selfcare is journaling (here is why). Additionally I just love to take walks and leave my phone at home because I tend to use it a bit too often… It definitely makes walks more meditative and calming for me.
