When a Year Abroad isn’t an Option…

For some people going abroad for half a year or even an entire year isn’t an option because of money issues or simply fearing that they won’t catch up again in school. If you just don’t want to be gone for so long but still want to go to another country by yourself various organizations offer such types of summers.

The Importance of Staying Hydrated

We should drink a lot of water; we all know that. Our moms and grannies tell us to do so but what’s behind all this?

Our bodies need water in order to survive. Cells need it for individual reactions and no organ can work without it properly. To make it short: Water is essential for life.

The amount a person should drink always depends on Continue reading The Importance of Staying Hydrated

“What We have done to our Planet is Criminal”

I have often heard sentences like that and I am sure you have too, but as it is generally known, it is always easier to complain about things, rather than to actually do something about them Especially concerning Global Warming or Climate Change, whatever you want to call it. Global Warming is without a doubt a major issue for all of us, and not only for those who are currently witnessing it. Because no matter if you want it or not, we are all part of this world and we ought to prevent it from falling apart. Continue reading “What We have done to our Planet is Criminal”

Austrian lakes to travel to in summer

I personally love Austrian lakes, because for me, they replace the sea. It is cheap going there, and almost always really close. Whenever me and my family don´t know where to go on vacation, we always travel to an Austrian lake. Here are some of the lakes me and my family like alot:

Greenlake – Styria

Close to a little village called Tragöß, there is a really famous lake called “Green lake”. The name fits perfect, because the lakes water is a dynamic green color. The lake is created from the melting snow from the Karst mountains, that´s why the temperature of the lake is constantly cold, even in summer. Anyhow, the lake is extremely famous. Especially because it offers scuba diving in the lake with a guide and a wet suit to resist the cold.   Continue reading Austrian lakes to travel to in summer

Fencing

I’m going to write about the sport fencing because I have been doing fencing for nearly three years now. I know this isn’t long but I still want to tell you what fencing is all about because many people don’t know anything about the modern sport fencing. Fencing isn’t only the ancient way of solving problems or something you see in pirate movies. It is a sport and somehow it is even more than that. Fencing is about getting full control of your body and thinking strategically while reacting very fast. You not only get to know your opponent a lot but you get to know a lot about yourself as well. This sport helps me to get to know my strengths better and to realize how to use them.    Continue reading Fencing

The Mandela effect

There are unexplained phenomena that some of you might have already experienced without knowing what they´re called, and these phenomena have been catching people’s attention lately. Basically “Mandela effects” are incidents that happened and that people remember in a certain kind of way but these things actually never happened or happened completely differently. The so called Mandela effect is also very similar to Fake News. This is a kind of false memory effect where people simply remember things the wrong way.

It´s called the Mandela effect because a whole bunch of people remember Nelson Mandela dying while he was still in prison in the 80´s. People also remember that his death was on December 5th in 2013, and claimed to have seen video clips of his funeral on TV.

These false memories have some people thinking that their memory is bad but other people think that they´ve gone to a parallel universe or that someone has managed to travel through time. Their theory is that someone went back to the past and changed little things which now affect our present. Whatever it is, the interesting thing about the Mandela effect is that so many individuals have the same false memories.

I have two favorite Mandela effects. One of them is about the Berenstein Bears. Or is that even what they are called? People can remember reading this book when they were young and all of them were 100% sure that the name of the book was “The Berenstein Bears”. However, if you look now, the book title says “The Berenstain Bears” A lot of people insist that they remember this book being spelled with an “e” instead of an “a”. One Redditor even found an old VHS tape of the cartoon version and the label clearly says “Berenstein”.

Another favorite Mandela effect of mine is about Snow white. I never really believed in the Mandela effect but after hearing about this one I freaked out completely. I´m sure a lot of you are familiar with the famous quote “Mirror, mirror on the wall”, well that never existed. It turns out that the line is “Magic mirror on the wall”. At first no one really believed in it but when they went back to old VHS tapes or movies the Queen actually never said “Mirror, mirror on the wall”. I think that this actually convinced a lot of people that the Mandela effect actually exists.

Personally I don´t believe in the Mandela effect. However, even I found myself realizing that I memorized a lot of these incidences differently.

Thanks for reading my blog post and maybe next time when you have a little time to pass just look up some Mandela effects and see if you can remember some things differently.

What is Christmas really about?

What are the first things that come to your mind when you hear Christmas? I bet it
is rather stress and shopping, than joy and helping others. But what should it be about?

In my opinion that’s a simple question. Christmas should be about joy, helping people in need and spending time with the people you love. But actually doing these things isn’t as easy as it might sound. In our world Christmas has become a competition between stores. Who has the cheapest sales-prices? Where can you find the best gifts? For many people the time before Christmas has become a stressful-running-from-one-shop-to-the-other-time. People pass each other without a smile, but rather with angry looks on their faces, because they have spent too much time in the crammed shopping malls.  But that’s not how it should be.
