Alles halb, nichts ganz

Lockdown Tagebuch #2 Samstagnachmittag beschalle ich den Innenhof mit Musik und denke darüber nach, ob Kasimir ein schöner Name ist. Ich denke über all das nach, was ich aus dem Tag machen könnte, und wie wenig Lust ich dazu habe. Ich denke an Worte, die in anderen Worten versteckt sind – die DetoNATION, zum Beispiel, […]

Es ist nichts romantisch an schlaflosen Nächten

Lockdown Tagebuch #1 (diesmal auf Deutsch) Es ist nichts romantisch an schlaflosen Nächten.Man liegt nur da, und irgendein Gedanke hält einen wach, obwohl man eigentlich schon gar nicht mehr denken kann. Wenn man wenigstens nachdenklich ins Mondlicht starren könnte, aber der Himmel ist wolkenverhangen. Wenn man nur lesen könnte, aber der Kopf versteht die Sätze […]

Lockdown Diaries #4

Throughout November, I (tried to) write a diary entry every day. It was kind of my personal NaNoWriMo, although I definitely never wrote 1500 words and got only 22 entries out of 30 days.

The morning class

I just came back to Shanghai from two days in the wilderness – wait, well, not EXACTLY the wilderness, more like… Chongming Island. Chongming does feel like the wilderness though – people rise and sleep with the sun AND I had to walk 5km to the next supermarket, which fulfills two of the four attributes […]
