VIRTUAL COFFEE DATE | July

Already mid July but finally I made it to our monthly coffee date. I am glad I did and due to my over all feeling I would ask if you would like to join me on my balcony for a cup. I could serve you a coffee or a blend of tea. I’ve a fast collection. If it’s hot I probably have some homemade iced tea in the fridge.

If we’d had coffee…
I’d say I felt a bit off lately. Maybe one reason why I had to postpone our meeting a bit. It’s just not my time of year. Summer always feels depressive – too hot, too loud, too much going on. I know it’s not a popular opinion but I can’t help the feeling. I’ve been holed up in my apartment for 5 days. Tell me, what is your least favorite season?

If we’d had coffee…
I’d wonder if you believe everyone had a vocation in life. I had a talk with a friend of mine and she mentioned that she doesn’t feel that what I do for a living is done with a lot of passion. And that this might be the reason why motivation feels so hard for me. That I spent so much energy motivation myself doing the tasks instead of doing them. So she suggested I should spent more time in finding my vocation. I have spent time in trying to figure it to. I didn’t find it. So I am wondering. Does everyone have this one passion in life? The one thing to share with the world? I really am not sure about it but I know specially our generation is raised to believe it.

If we’d had coffee…
I’d wonder if you find my blog name fitting. Lately I’ve wondered if I should change it. I feel like I want to share more thoughts and ramblings and less creative and DIY stuff. Also no one can spell it. I kinda like it but it is very me focused (with the me in the end) something I never liked. I’d like to hear your thoughts.

If we’d had coffee…
I’d tell you I am planning on getting a helmet to ride my bicycle. Obviously it’s not for fashion purposes but recently there have been more bike related accidents reported here in Berlin. Maybe I am just conscious. Anyhow it’s never a bad idea to invest in your health. So if you have any good ones to recommend I am all ears.

If we’d had coffee…
I could finally tell you that I finished my 101 in 1001 days bucket list. It took me only 6 weeks to compile. I never knew it is so hard to come up with so many intentional goals. So I was wondering if I am too strict on what makes the list or just aimless? And I also wonder if you would join in the fun.

If we’d had coffee…
I’d wonder how your summer is going? Do you enjoy it? Did you travel somewhere or plan on doing so? Did you write yourself a bucket list to cross off?

As we are heading towards noon the sun is coming around the neighbor’s house and soon the balcony will be scorching hot. So we say good bye and plan on meeting up in August. You head out and I plan on hopping over to Lecy to spend a few more minutes visiting.

Happy day to you

Tobia

  1. I would love to have tea on your balcony with you! I’m sorry you’re feeling off. I feel the same way about the season. Summer is my least favorite, and while there are good things about it, I do find that I get depressed very easily. I think figuring out what your passion is, comes with time. It takes life experiences to learn what you love and don’t love and that will help drive you to what you really want to do with your life. I do like your blog name, but you’re right about it keeping you in the craft/DIY direction. If you changed it, what would you change it to? It is so difficult to finish the 101 list, isn’t it? It took me forever to figure out all the goals I wanted to accomplish. Can’t wait to see how you do over the next 1,001 days! Thanks so much for meeting up with me, Tobia. Hope to see you next time! <3

    1. Thank you for your kind words. I guess I am just very inpatient when it comes to figuring out live. I also recently listend to a podcast saying that you can’t find your vocation but have to search for it. That is a new take on it.
      As for the blog name I wouldn’t know what the new one would be. Something more general and life oriented I guess. I’ll think on that. Thank you for stopping by.

  2. I feel the same about summer too. In Australia our summers are extremely hot and I find it very overwhelming. Some people love it but for me it’s my least favourite season. I hope you’re able to rest and look after yourself through the hot weather. I don’t know if we all have one vocation or passion in life – I think we’re led to different things at different times of life. Wow, 101 goals would be tricky to think up! But I wish you all the best in achieving them! Lovely to have coffee with you this month, Tobia.

    1. That is an interesting thought “different things at different times” as it allows change and flexibility. I have to think on that. It was tough coming up with those goals but also made me think about the direction I want to take in life and what’s important. I am excited to cross off some things.

  3. As you recall, I recently got a bike and I did buy a helmet at the same time. I never used to have one in Germany, but I think nowadays it’s a good idea (let alone, a good example) to have one!

    If you’re unhappy with your blog name, I’d brainstorm for a while and see if you can come up with something that ‘fits you’ better. Do you have any ideas already?

    1. Yes it would definitely be a good example to wear a helmet. Let alone my save my life. No I’ve no real idea as of yet what a new blog name could look like. I think on it.
