16 Fakten über mich | Glücksgeist

I’ve never written a post in german before. I tried it a few seconds ago and felt so weird so I thought I start this as always, with an English introduction. I asked you on Instagram if you would like to read a post in german and so many of you said yes. I actually have a little thing to celebrate. I hit 1500 followers on my blog and by now actually 1600. I had a little blogging break. I felt super unmotivated and didn’t know what I should write about.

But I am back and I am super happy about it. I thought it would be nice to do an updated 16 facts about me today. As I gained so many new followers I thought it’s a great way to get to know me a little bit more.

As I said at the beginning this is going to be my first post in german, but no worries of course I have the English translation right underneath it. I would love to hear if you want me to do more posts like this. And I would love to hear if you understood anything german. Try and read it in german first, maybe you understand a few things.

16 Fakten über mich

1. Ich LIEBE Spaghetti. Ich weiß nicht warum aber seit ein paar Monaten bin ich voll auf dem Spaghetti-trip. Früher hab ich sie gehasst und wollte sie nie essen und jetzt kann ich gar nicht genug von ihnen kriegen. ABER ich mag nur die Spaghetti von Barilla in der Nummer 1.

1. I LOVE spaghetti. I hated spaghetti when I was younger and now I really like them a lot. I only eat the ones from Barilla though.

2. Ich mache unheimlich gerne die Wäsche. Also nicht immer immer, aber meistens. Ich finde es irgendwie beruhigend und es gibt einem das Gefühl wirklich etwas getan zu haben wenn der Wäscheberg immer kleiner wird.

2. I love doing laundry. I think it’s such a calming thing to do and you always feel like you’ve really done something when the big pile of dirty clothes gets smaller and smaller.

3. Ich war am Dienstag 4 einhalb Meter unter der Ostsee in einer Art Tauchgondel. Ich wollte das unbedingt machen und hab trotzdem ein kleines bisschen Panik bekommen als ich die Gondel betreten hab. Ich hab leider keine Fische gesehen aber es war eine coole Erfahrung vor allem weil ich früher immer Meeresbiologin werden wollte.

3. When I was younger I really wanted to study marine biology. I was obsessed with the sea. On Tuesday I went 4 and a half meters under the sea in a weird looking machine. At first it was a weird feeling and I had a little panic-minute, but then it was just a really cool experience. I sadly didn’t see any fish but I’m glad that I did it.

4. Ich liebe es zu reden. Ich könnte stundenlang mit meiner Familie quatschen. Manchmal etwas zu viel aber ich finde es einfach toll Dinge zu erzählen, vor allem meiner Mama.

4. I love to chat a lot. I could spend hours chatting away with my mum. Sometimes it can be a bit much but I just love telling things.

5. Ich hab mir vor ein, zwei Wochen meine Haare geschnitten. Ich brauche immer wieder mal eine Veränderung und es war wirklich Zeit für eine. Meine Haare gehen jetzt nur noch bis zu meinen Schultern. Ich war noch nie so glücklich nach einem Friseurgang, jetzt muss ich sie nur noch cool stylen.

5. I cut my hair about two weeks ago and I’ve never been more happy with the result. I really love my new hair which now only goes to my shoulders. I always need a change so it really was time for this one and I’m really happy with it. Now I only need to figure out how to style them.

6. Ich liebe Eis. Vor allem jetzt wo es wärmer wird brauche ich einfach ein Eis. Wir haben gestern endlich laktosefreies Eis gefunden und jetzt kann ich ohne bedenken so viel Eis essen bis die Packung leer ist.

6. I love ice cream. I really fancy ice cream now that it got warmer. We also found some special ice cream yesterday for lactose intolerant people and it tastes so good.

7. Ich könnte jeden Tag Salat essen, aber nur den von meiner Mama. Meine Mama macht den besten Salat und ich freue mich immer wenn ich einen essen kann. Absoluter Salat fan.

7. I love eating salads, mostly the one from my mum. She makes the best salad ever and I could eat it every single day because it tastes so good.

8. Ich liebe es einkaufen zu gehen, vor allem in meinem Lieblingssupermarkt. Ich finde es einfach toll rum zu laufen und Essen zu kaufen. Für mich ist das irgendwie beruhigend und gleichzeitig aufregend.

8. I love food-shopping. It’s one of my favourite things to do and this kind of sounds a bit sad but I just really enjoy it so much. It’s so calming to me but also exciting when I find new stuff to try.

9. Ich liebe den Sommer, aber nicht weil es mega warm wird sondern einfach nur wegen der Sonne. Ich liebe es wenn es lange hell bleibt und man einfach das Gefühl hat Zeit zu haben und die Sonne genießen kann.

9. I love summer!!! I love when the sun shines and the days feel longer, like you have more time to enjoy some sunshine.

10. Ich mag heißes Wetter gar nicht gerne. Für mich ist es immer zu warm, unsere Wohnung hat dann 40 Grad. Sonne ja, Hitze nein danke.

10. I really don’t like hot weather. It’s always too hot for me and I feel a little funny. Our flat has about 40 degrees Celsius when it’s hot and it’s just too much for me. Sun yes, heat no thank you.

11. Ich liebe es Briefe zu schreiben und zu erhalten. For ein paar Monaten/Wochen hab ich angefangen Briefe and meine Blogger-Freunde zu schreiben und das war die beste Entscheidung die ich treffen konnte. Ich hab so viele tolle Briefe und sogar Päckchen erhalten und der Gedanke daran macht mich schon wieder super glücklich.

11. I love to write and receive letters. A few months/weeks ago I started to write letters to my blogger friends and it was the best thing I could have started. I received so many amazing letters and even parcels. This makes me just super happy.

12. Instagram ist gerade meine Lieblings-app. Ich liebe es Bilder zu machen und zu bearbeiten und Instagram macht mir einfach so viel Spaß. Meine Bilder sind definitiv nicht perfekt, aber einfach verschiedene Sachen auszuprobieren macht echt Spaß und ich schaue viel zu viele Videos auf YouTube über verschiedene Bearbeitungs-apps, aber was soll’s ;).

12. I love Instagram at the moment. Taking photos is one of my favourite things to do and I’ve been really into editing them lately. I watch by far too many videos on YouTube about different editing apps, but I just love to try different things.

13. Ich hab ein echtes Lachgummi-problem. Das sind für mich die besten Süßigkeiten die es gibt und ich esse wahrscheinlich viel zu viele davon, aber sie sind einfach so lecker.

13. I have a Lachgummi-problem. They are my favourite sweets, I eat way too many of them but I just can’t help it. They taste so good.

14. Seit der Hochzeit von Prinz Harry bin ich ein bisschen im royalen Fieber. Ich schaue unheimlich gerne Dokumentationen über die Königsfamilien an und Victoria von Schweden ist einfach so ein unglaublich tolles Vorbild.

14. Since the royal wedding I am obsessed with watching documentaries about all the royal families. Victoria from Sweden is just such an amazing rolemodel.

15. Ich hab noch nie einen Blog Post auf deutsch geschrieben. Das ist mein allererster. Ich hab ein bisschen gebraucht um reinzukommen aber es hat mir echt Spaß gemacht.

15. This is my very first german post. I’ve never wrote one in german before and it was a lot of fun to do something different.

16. Ich bin seit ein paar Wochen ein Pura Vida rep. Ich hab die Armbänder von meiner Mama zu Ostern bekommen und trage sie fast jeden Tag. Mit dem Code GLUECKSGEIST20 bekommt ihr 20% auf den gesamten Einkauf bei Pura Vida. Ein großer Teil geht an echt tolle Organisationen also wenn ihr wollte lest euch mal die Geschichte von Pura Vida durch.

16. I’m a pura vida rep since a few weeks now. I love this brand so so much. My mum got me the most amazing bracelets ever and I’m wearing them nearly everyday. Pura Vida donates money with every sold bracelet to so many different organisations so if you want read their story and get to know them a bit better, you can do that here. You can get 20% off your entire order with the code GLUECKSGEIST20.

  1. I think it’s such a good idea to write posts on two languages, I’ve been doing it for a long time and it definitely takes a lot longer but more people can actually read your posts which is so nice. Lovely post and congrats on 1600 followers. xx

  2. Wonderschön. Ich have alles auf Deutsch verstehen (or is it verstanden). Isst du Spaghetti Eis?

    Im moment esse ich nicht so viel Süßigkeiten. Ich bevorzuge Schokolade, aber manchmal esse ich Percy Pigs und Haribo 🙂

      1. I thought it was verstanden because it was past tense! 🙂 when I was in Germany one I went to an ice cream shop and had Spaghetti Eis with Haribo gummi bears, it was amazing!

  3. Unfortunately I don’t understand German. Maybe a few basic words here and there but that’s all (even tho I have some further relatives there). Despite that, I really liked this post! 🙂
    And yes, when Summer starts, ice cream is my guilty pleasure. Can’t help it! 😀

  5. I loved this! It’s incredible to be bilingual, and you should definitely do more posts like this! It’s such an amazing skill 😀 Also, quick question cause I’m curious. I noticed that you capitalized more words in German. Do you do it for all nouns?

  6. So cool that you translated this post into German!! The only language I can speak fluently is English although I’m hoping that after I’ve finished my French lessons at school I’ll be able to speak French quite well too 😊 i love the sunshine too but not the heat!! Xx

  7. Loved this post! And this must be so cool for people studying German or wanting to learn the language! I also really enjoy doing food shops (even putting food in the cupboards when we get home) I find it so calming! Xx

    1. Thank you Phoebe!! It felt a little strange writing in German but it was really fun. And yes! Food shopping is so fun and I love putting everything away afterwards xx

  8. Aw I loved this. I cannot read any German but I just love looking at other languages even if I can’t read them (is that weird haha). I think once I’ve mastered Spanish I’ll do German! My favourite sweets are strawberry liquorice, and I’d have to say my favourite app at the moment is VSCO I love their filters xx

  9. I think it’s really cool that you did this! I personally cannot understand any German so had to read the English translations the entire time but I can imagine it would be a great way to test your German. What is in your Mum’s salad? xx

  10. Congratulations on 1600 followers! This post was really cool- I love how you did both German & English. I am lactose intolerant but I’ve never been able to find a good dairy free ice cream! How lucky that you have!

    My favorite sweet would be dark chocolate or these chewy candies called Hi-Chews. My favorite app at the moment is probably the Hamilton Lottery app as I am trying to win tickets on it every day. 😛
