Foreign Me

Everything is changing,
Nothing is like it was before,
Wind closes a window
And opens another door.

I’m no longer
The person,
I used to be.
More than ever,
I’m longing
To be me.

So much fake,
So much fate,
So many miles,
It was some long path to take.

People say:
Change is good.
But for me
It’s just one big wood.

I’m following the way,
Steadily walking towards this sunray.
Can’t stop in my tracks,
Branch beneath my feet cracks.

It just happens
This progress.
It’s a mess.

Mirror reflection in the water,
I’m no longer my mother’s daughter.
So alien I’ve become,
My features so different,
I want to run!

This labyrinth is consuming me,
Can’t find my way out,
There’s just another tree.

All those years,
What did they do to me?
I’m blind,
Can’t see.
Some voice is screaming: flee!

Mist is all around,
Knees on the wet ground.
What I’m searching,
It can’t be found.

I’m seeking,
The person I used to be.
My young and innocent me.

Life & Blog Update

Changes on my blog2

Hey there my lovelies,

It’s been a while I last wrote a general update so I thought I might let you know what’s kept me busy over those last few weeks. My allergy is finally mostly gone so I’m once again an ordinary and breathing member of society. *lol* Not that I complain, I mean to breathe is a very vital part of our lives. (Quite literally, I may add! XD Too soon to make jokes about it?)

Well, anyway I’m feeling better now but my job kept me busy and my little one was sick a lot. As it seems we finally found out what caused her to be sick though and now that we know it’s a food allergy, we’ll just avoid that particular sort of food. Why do our kids always inherit our “good” features? *lol* If you ever find out, let me know! 😉

Also – and here I take this post back to my blog – I made some changes that some of you might have noticed already. I started to work with Canva and now I don’t only have a nice “Monthly Wrap-Up” sign but also made some violet/green banners for the main topics of my reviews. =)))

I can’t remember who recommended this page to me, but I’ll forever be grateful for that tip! (Whoever you were, THANK YOU!!! ❤ ) It’s so much fun to work with those tools and I’m sure I’ll use them even more often in future. Of course I’ll try to keep up my own drawings as well! After all I know how many of you love my sassy fox and the paws I created for my ratings. ;-P In future it might just be a mixture of both. XD

And speaking of new changes/inventions! After blogging for half a year I’m very proud that I’ve managed to have at least two blog posts that have become a monthly permanent fixture on my site. From now on you’ll get a monthly wrap up as well as my monthly blog meme “Hugs’n’kisses OR Dismissed by the Missus/Messrs”. I’m kind of toying with the idea of going for one of those weekly famous book tags I see on other blogs, but I really don’t know if I would be able to keep it up. To be a working mom is quite stressful and since I can’t seem to get up more than 2 posts a week, one of these probably won’t do it for me. #TimeManagementIsABitch *lol*

Still, I might not have a lot of time to write my reviews but for some reason I still manage to sneak in a few pages every once in a while. By now my goodreads challenge claims that I’m 14 books ahead of schedule and I’m thinking about upping it to 52. I guess that might be a more realistic approach and I’m sure I could reach that goal. =)

And last but not least! I have 135 followers by now and I’m soo thankful for each and every one of you! ❤ I never thought it would become that many in such a short time and *lol* I think I might have to work on my “disclaimers and privacy policy” soon! I mean I promised you that I’d go for a book lottery once I hit the 150 mark and I get the feeling I might reach this goal rather sooner than later. XD So if you take part in the lottery and win the book I should at least have some sort of privacy policy that will guarantee you that I won’t play fast and loose with your address. *LOL*

If any of you has tips on how to write one of those I’ll send you a virtual fox hug! 😀

Soo, I guess that’s all for now! *the fox said after writing an entire essay* XD

Let me know what you think about the changes on my blog! Do you like them? Hate them? Have a few suggestions and ideas how to improve it even more? I’m all ears and eyes! ;-P

Stay safe and take care! ❤

*hugs’n’kisses*

Tainted Heart

The silence that surrounds me,
It’s so intense.
How is it even possible
no one sees through my pretense?
Is it really such a good defence?

I’ve hidden for so many years,
so afraid someone might see my tears.
My hidden desires
my countless insecurities and fears.
But what does it even matter
after all those years?

I’ve lost myself
in doubt and despair.
Played my role,
followed all those rules
just to realize I no longer care.

But how to stop?
How to speak the truth?
How to dare?
I no longer get some air!

The mask I wear
it’s suffocating.
Everything I do,
it’s so frustrating.

I can’t go on,
I can’t go back,
all that’s left is deep regret.

I no longer know what’s true,
I don’t have a clue.
I’m so lost,
I just don’t know what to do.

Blog News! ;-)

Hey there, my lovelies! =)

Considering the many changes I made over those last two weeks I thought I might write another update for you. (Are you bored of them already? *lol*) But there happened so much that I feel like I need to get it out of my system before I explode. XD

So here I go! First of all I want to thank Surina and Hamad for nominating me for two different awards!!! I mean OMG!! You guys are incredible!! How did I even deserve to be nominated for blogger awards? I’m still so new on here so this was just awesome and I can’t thank you guys enough! <333 I loved to answer those questions and I’m very happy and thankful that I have such amazing friends! (We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving over here but I think now is the perfect time to say this, right?!) So THANK YOU, THANK YOU and once again THANK YOU!!! 😀

Secondly, I made a few changes on my page (once again, I can already hear you groan. *lol*) and wanted to share them with you. Hopefully you’ll enjoy them. 😉 I made a new category and named it “Fox Life” and from now on you’ll find my book tags in there too. It just made sense to place them in there since I didn’t want to have all too many categories in my main menu. I wanted it to be clearly arranged and I hope I achieved what I aimed for. In addition to that I also created three other new categories which will be filled over time.

I named them:

Bookish Fox Knowledge – In here you’ll find my personal opinion about series and books. Like for instance my “Top 10 series to read before I die cry. “ and other top lists I’ll come up with. I already have 3 others in mind so stay tuned. ;-P

Viennese Strolls – I’m still not all too sure what will be in here but it will be my experiences when I’m in Vienna. Once a month I visit the main library and borrow books and afterwards I go to the cinema or do something fun. So you might as well find one or another movie review, or shopping insider advice or many Vienna related tips and tricks.

Sassy Antics – I think this will be a fun category and so far there isn’t a lot in it except of my “Bookie Jar”. There is way more to come though because I can think of a thousand bad good ideas that might go in there. *lol* I guess this will mostly feel like a surprise egg. You’ll never know what you’ll get. XD

The last change I made is an “Archive” on the sidebar of my blog. It will help you to find my blog posts in the order they were posted. 😉

What else is new?

– I have 58 followers now (YAY!!! *runs around hyper*) and I’ll forever be grateful for each and every one who bothers to read what I write. <333

– I cut my hair and it’s so awesome! I feel like a new person and I just love my shoulder-length hair!!! =))

– The first book I pulled out of my „Bookie Jar“ is „Widdershins“ by Jordan L. Hawk!

– I’ll go to the library today. So if you’re in Vienna, visit the library and run into a red haired tall girl with a Gryffindor scarf that carries about 10 books… Well, you’ll know that it’s me! *lol* Plus I’m going to watch “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” afterwards so there might be a short review about it in my “Viennese Strolls” soon. 😉

This said, have a wonderful and lovely weekend!!! <333
