Are you an early morning person? I am not. Monday will be my exception. I'll chat with the guys of SAT1 Frühstücksfernsehen at 7 AM GMT+1 (10 PM Sunday PST). There will be a second take at around nine. Watch a live stream here. Or sleep in and watch it later.
I am absolutely flattered to be among the Kölner Stadtanzeiger's favorite blogs! And so, so happy to read they find my blog moving. This is all I ever hoped for!

Today, Christmas and Easter fell on the same date. At least for me: I was at my two favorite radio stations, Deutschlandradio Kultur and, from back in the days when the 16 year old me would lie in bed and listen to the wide world talking, Radio Fritz.
I had a super interesting chat with the show's host Eric which went on after the microphones had been switched off.
The icing on the cake was added by Clueso's presence in this picture, for he is my current musical hero. Merry Easter!
Find two minutes of the interview here
I am just about to unlock my bike and ride it all the way to DRadio Kultur. Can't wait to chat with these guys in an hour, if you feel like a little radio love tune in here at 1.15 PM Berlin time. On the website, press play at Deutschlandradio Kultur live hören.
Thanks for listening!
I am stoked to find another article online: Focus wrote about this project, too.
Wow. Thank you so much for that!

Last week I met beautiful Violetta Kuhn from the German's AP equivalent called DPA. She interviewed me and her colleague took pictures and enlightened us with stories about the way the DPA works (thanks again!).
Today her article was released and I am so, so stoked and flattered to have found her content in a beautiful article published by Die Welt.
Wow, thank you guys so much!

Everything about this article is amazing: The author who did a great job coming up with bright questions, her choice of words, the fact that Stern Gesund Leben gave A Compliment A Day two entire pages, and that photo shoot! This one made it to my top ten 2014 experiences. Why? Stay tuned. I complimented the photographer... Thank you so, so much Stern Gesund Leben, this is something I will show my grandchildren!

Yesterday was my favorite day in 2015 so far. I got to experience television! It was the coolest adventure ever. Starting with a one hour face massage called applying make up, given by a nice lady talking to whom was a treat, I next enjoyed hanging out with sweet girls who were taking super good care of me. Finally the shooting went down in a studio full of people who I was asked to ignore and just hang out in the presenter's living room otherwise known as the set- with cameras videotaping me. It was easier than expected and although I was super nervous I ended up enjoying René's (left) and Mrs Niemeyer's (right) company a lot! They did make me feel comfortable and eventually René delivered the most beautiful compliment to me: He reported his colleague's statement, "Awesome guest! She really does make the world a better place." In front of the camera my body started tickling everywhere and for a moment left me knocked out. All I managed to say was "My hands are getting so wet right now!"
It was- super beautiful. There is still a mega smile occupying my face as I am writing this.
Thank to everyone who made this happen!
