This is so awesome! We had a big snow storm here. This time it didn’t hit us on a weekend, but on a Monday. Yes, that always means a lot of snow blowing and shoveling (no matter which day of the week the snow storm comes) but that also means that companies sometimes allow their employees to stay home because driving in a snowstorm is considered dangerous. And it is dangerous, indeed! I’ve done it and can’t tell you how draining it is to cruise on slippery roads in constant fear that either my car or another car nearby is going to lose control. In addition to that is the lack of visibility and the water freezing on the windshield wipers, causing even more problems since they are not able to clean the windshield anymore.

Hunting as a hobby is one of these things that I don‘t understand. I understand that we have to kill animals because we have to eat protein, at least once in a while. Nowadays, people like me don’t have to kill in order to get their meat.

In winter I become a raging fury when I see cars with ice and snow on their roofs. This is so dangerous and I just don’t understand why these people don’t take care of it. Well, it is partially understandable because it endangers only the cars behind them and not themselves.

Today I had to almost stop because a wheelchair was driving on the street. There was not enough room to pass it, therefore all cars had to adjust their speed to the wheelchair driver. That sucks, but how bad must that feel for the person in that chair.

I have heard that noise for quite a while. I tried to ignore it for at least two weeks, maybe even longer. Whenever I turned my car to the left, there was this noise in my front wheels. It was very low and easy to overhear when the music was on.

This is not a political blog, and maybe I should not talk about political stuff here, but politics shape our lives. When Donald Trump was elected as president of the United States I decided, after a day of panic, that I will just ignore this dude as long as he...

My friend lives and works on her boyfriend’s Marijuana farm. I always thought that it was cool that I had a friend like her. There is nothing illegal about having a farm like that in Maine (otherwise I would not write about that here – or maybe I would –...

Either Americans are lazy or Germans are too German to live a really comfortable life. Just take a look at the cars. In Germany hardly anyone drives an automatic transmission car. We usually prefer cars with a manual shift. Not that I had a lot of choices there.
