Yesterday marks the 1 yr anniversary of moving back to Germany after my MA. That makes four years now that I’ve spent here (plus one year in London). Last year was chaotic — I turned down a PhD to work freelance instead and felt sometimes like an absolute crazy person, but it’s been quite possibly the best year of my life thus far. Even if I did spend 8 weeks on crutches because I fell down the stairs at work... twice ;) Here’s a photo from my PhD visit back in March 2017 #sfmoma #bänderriss #stairsarehard #returntogerm #allblackeverything #laurenandgermany #alovestory

Merry Christmas from sunny San Diego. 🎅🏼☀️🌴🎄 I had to turn the sound off on this video because otherwise Bodak Yellow would be blasting in the background. #sandiego #christmas

Impressions from the Taunus a few weeks ago... 🌨☃️ This is prob my last post about the snow seeing as I'm about to board a plane to warmer places. See you soon in 11 hours Seattle, and see you later this week San Diego 👋🏻🌲 #ripgemütlichechristmas #hallowärme #25Grad

! I was on German television for two seconds during the TTT feature (ARD/Das Erste) on the Jil Sander exhibition opening (find me in a black floral dress on the left with a ponytail). My colleagues said this means I have precisely 14:58 seconds of fame left. #museumangewandtekunst #workstuff

Not sure I've ever loved anything as much as I love Frankfurt covered in snow (ask me again in two weeks if I still love it). #SNOW #❄️ #☃️ #🖤

Also, emails like this make long days seem like nothing. After graduating from my BA in 2013, I taught English and Art for a year on a Fulbright scholarship (at an elementary school in Frankfurt). Today I got this email from a former student and my heart = melted. 🖤 #diekleinen #foreignlanguageeducation #fulbright
