10 Things I ♥ in March

don’t trust the B- | I3 by Diana Scherer | the embroidered computer | osmia bicornis

It might be a bit late but that doesn’t change the fact that I liked things last month!

  1. I just finished Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt. 23 within less than a week and I think it’s hilarious. Diverse (and also horrible but strangely lovable) female characters are so important and this show is doing a fantastic job!
  2. How amazing is the art of Diana Scherer? The Dutch artist combines graphic design with nature by letting roots grow in patterns and the results are so gorgeous! I’m getting beautiful Solarpunk vibes from her work, especially I3.
  3. This CollegeHumor sketch on hypermasculinity is just fantastic, and it sums up so many things that go wrong in advertisement – and, honestly, in Western society in general.
  4. Osmia bicornis, the Red Mason Bee, 2019’s insect of the year for Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Bees in general are so wonderful and I keep them in mind while planning my balcony garden for this year.
  5. My Family. Or rather families, plural. My LARP family, my family of friends that I’m slowly building here in Hanover and of course my two blood families. I think they don’t even know how much strength they give me simply by existing, and how much I love them.
  6. Russian Doll was a fine enough series (have you seen it yet?) but what really stuck was the, well, theme song Gotta Get Up by Harry Nilsson. It has a lot of things I love in songs – accordeons, great chords, brass, short, choppy rhymes, a march-y beat, relatable lyrics – and it’s basically the first thing I listen to in the morning at the moment.
  7. Onion Peel Dye. I’m currently trying my hand at natural dyes again and the sunny yellow from fair onion skins is one of my favourite colours ever.
  8. Warmer Spring Days – I even went barefoot on a walk through the hills behind my mother’s house for a few minutes! We still get cold days (which is perfectly alright with me) but you can clearly see where nature is going right now.
  9. I started a diary again – but a drawn rather than a written  one. After going through it again I remembered how much fun my travel diary from our last Amsterdam trip was for me and decided to have one for the journey that is my everyday life, as well.
  10. Okay, how amazing is the Embroidered Computer by Irene Posch and Ebru Kurbak? To me – who has barely any idea about how these things work – this is such a magical piece of art and I absolutely love the idea (again, very strong Solarpunk vibes).

Any thoughts?
