Me, Myself & I

I am a localization manager/translator and intercultural consultant living in Berlin (Germany), passionate about languages, cultures, diversity management, dancing and good movies.  

Interested in intercultural communication and/or diversity management? In the mood for a Tandem-partner or looking for someone willing to learn Spanish with you? Desperately seeking an enthusiastic dance partner for salsa, bachata, swing or charleston?
Hoping to find a blogging buddy willing to inspire and motivate you?

Just drop me a line for a coffee. I am always thankful for the chance to get to know interesting and fascinating people like you.

Can a relationship be just like a yoghurt?


If it’s important today, it will be important tomorrow.

Sometimes it's very easy to convince yourself that you need to achieve everything immediately. Right now. Every little bit of a thing. Just now. No matter what.
But it's not true.

The best way to understand if something is really important is to ask yourself 'Is this going to be still important to me in six months?'. Well, if the answer is yes, then go ahead with it. If not, think twice about it and about the time and the energy you are willing to spend to be able to achieve something is not going to mean nothing to you in less than six months. Do you want to go ahead with it anyway? You're welcome, but please don't ask for my help if you're going to be disappointed or bored.

Is it the same with people? Even if we don't want to know it... well, yes. Most of the time. What makes people so important is the time we decide to commit to them, to spend with them, to dedicate to them. Today, tomorrow, in six months, in ten months, in three years. You got it.

What kind of relationships are you trying to build? The kind is able to leave you something full of meaning year after year or the kind less durable than a yoghurt?

  2. Just... breathe. And wait a little.
    Let things happen for a while and pay attention: are you missing him/her/it or not?

  4. If you need somebody, call my name
    If you want someone, you can do the same
    If you want to keep something precious
    You got to lock it up and throw away the key
    If you want to hold onto your possession
    Don't even think about me

    If you love somebody, set them free
