My couple of weeks of holiday in Italy gave me enough time to think about the future (well you know, because during the last 6 months I was so occupied with drinking
illegal rice whiskey coconut milk in Laos, surfing in Philippines and going to drag-queen shows in Montreal, that I did not have any time for that at all).
I am graduating in a little less than a month from now, hence it seems sensible to start a proper job hunt. The fact that I am 25 and bought a soya milk Latte this morning on my dad’s Visa will not be socially acceptable for long.
On the other hand all these social norms are so overrated, right?
Anyway, I believe my academic background (I’m talking universities in Europe, Asia and North America) and especially my Master’s degree makes me rather qualified for making photocopies. Or coffee. In case anyone is hiring?
I could also make playlists for the office?
Oh and in hopes of a promotion, I would play this one to my boss:

I do have to admit that traveling in South East Asia was one of the most profound and life-changing experiences I have ever had.
Mainly because I survived 5 weeks without a hairdryer, went trekking through a jungle barefoot and had to share my bathroom with like 20 people.
That being said, here goes some photos that I
stole borrowed from George Lim, this kiwi guy with a massive camera that I met when traveling. I actually did not know that I could bend in such ways. Raging hormones when the sun goes down, anyone ?
But the life back in Europe is also not easy. I am officially experiencing a Post Asia Crisis.
I spent the first 5 days laying in my bed in a fetus position eating rice crackers and listening to Oasis’ Wonderwall on repeat. Which was a major bummer because my tan faded away without my friendenemies getting a chance to see it and get jealous.
I also spent hours and hours on Won Hundred’s website drooling over S/S2013. Which was even a bigger bummer as rice crackers is as much as I can afford at the moment.
Now I am considering getting a spray tan (if my credit card doesn’t get declined), turning all the heaters on at home and watching YouTube videos of sea. In HD.

While I was lost in the South East Asian wilderness (see above), the last couple of months proved to be oh-boy-so-intense in the global arena. So here goes the three most world-changing events (just in case you were lost in some wilderness as well).
1. In Europe, the pope announced his resignation.
This means that I can now freely and openly feed on birth control 24/7 without being condemned by the church. Not that this would matter anyway, as my parents pulled the hippie card on me, “forgot” to baptize me and basically raised me as an atheist brat with no religious values what so ever. Thanks Parents.
2. In Asia, North Korea launched yet another nuclear test and threatened to take actions against South Korea if they complied with the new UN sanctions.
As much as I will miss soldiers wearing BB cream, K-Pop and sneakers in neon colors, it was rather perfect timing for me to flee Seoul. At least I saved my mom a couple of sleepless nights
(but then again, my gin & tonic adventures back in Europe may cause her even greater lack of sleep than missiles, so not sure if I actually did her a favor).
I am also feeling pretty fortunate that my 20 pages essay on how Unification, Peace and Love are coming to the Korean peninsula got graded before the whole Pyongyang’s nuke party in January.
3. In North America, Kanye impregnated Kim Kardashian.
Being a pop cultural anthropologist I find the two of them to be über fascinating overhyped famewhores, which I hear is actually a compliment in the US.
Plus I watched the episode of “Keeping up with the Kardashians” where Kanye bought Kim enough cloths to dress 10 generation of her ancestors in Armenia. Must be true love ❤ .

Just another Sunday morning with Vogue and a skinny Latte at Allpress Espresso (also known as Hipster Starbucks) around the corner from my place.
Though people are giving me weird looks.
Not sure if that’s my Saturday night’s make-up that’s still on or is Vogue way too mainstream for Shoreditch?

The weather in Paris was crap this weekend, hence I couldn’t camp around the Jardin du Luxembourg or whoop it up with my glass of Bourgogne on some sunny terrace in Saint-Germain-des-Pres. I was forced to hide from rain and go shopping.
