40 Facts...
  • I love plants but don't care for them well (yet).
  • I wear the most lovely sheepskin slippers every moment I'm at home. 
  • Frequently I can't sleep.
  • My husband and I do almost everything together, play in a band, work at the same school, sleep, etc...
  • I've only made love to one man.
  • I haven't picked my favorite art form yet. 
  • This house is the only place I can really call my home. The other places I've lived were all home but not MY HOME (I've moved a lot).
  • Summer is my most favoritest season. 
  • I invite people over to our place mostly so that I don't have to leave our home. 
  • I'm not a morning person, no matter how much I want to be. 
  • I have 10 childrens' names already picked out, but only plan on having 2-3 kids.
  • My first CD was Lauryn Hill's Misseducation. 
  • I learned to draw when I was 19 years old and then studied art in University. 
  • Buying lamps is one of my weaknesses.
  • I haven't found a food that I like to eat within an hour of waking up. 
  • Recently more often than not, I am waiting for a package from amazon.com
  • Showering is a bi-weekly thing for me in winter.
  • I play music with my husband (Dominik Baer) in his band. (oh I already mentioned this).
  • I make up songs and dances just for fun, but also to make my husband laugh.
  • Printmaking is a process I will always love!
  • I married a man that grew up moving every 2 years. At times I secretly want to stay in one place forever. 
  • Spicy instant-noodles are my favorite midnight snack. 
  • I got to know some of my best friends on msn messenger in the late 90s. 
  • I have cried at every wedding I've ever been to, even if I don't know the couple.

  • People say I'm a good communicator, though I feel as if I can't speak any language properly. 
  • I wasn't a picky eater until I moved to Germany at 24 years old. 
  • My favorite hobby is learning how to do something new. I'm most interested when I'm constantly learning new things about a subject or skill. 
  • I was a vegetarian for 4 years. Now I eat everything. 
  • Teaching art at a school both sucks up all my creativity and inspires me to create at the same time. I give away too many good ideas to my students.

  • I will never be a minimalist. 
  • I smoked my first cigarette all alone, when I was 13. I got the spins and had to lie down.

  • Nights alone at home are my favorite.
  • At times I wish the world had one universal language that was a combination of the best words in every language. Feierabend = party evening, after work, in german, graeng jai = apologetic about inconveniencing someone, in Thai, and gizmo= meaning gadget in English, etc...
  • I can't remember the last time I was bored. 
  • I chemically straightened my hair when I was in grade 8. It didn't work at all.
  • Loving myself has always been a struggle of mine.
  • Loving others has come easy to me. I have only hated being around a hand-full of people in the duration of my life.
Thanks for reading lovelies. 

Cheers,

I'm going to The Hive
The Hive is a blogger conference, this year being held in Berlin. I am delighted and excited to join up with and hear from a number of online story-tellers. I'm heading to the capital city in two weeks. Dominik is going to play a number of shows while we are there!

Image from Cocorrina, one of the speakers at the conference. Check out her design work. It's wicked!

I'm spending my spring break playing music, making art, and learning more about digital story-telling, what are you doing?

Cheers,

Anna
