Lately, I've been reading tons of blogs, scouring newspapers and navigating online websites to find inspiration. For what, you may ask? Well, I'm trying to find my voice as a writer. And I feel in order to do so successfully, I need to see how other people are portraying themselves online. We all have a different personality. Some writers love sharing about really intimate things in their lives. Others love writing about nonsensical, ordinary things without much emotion. I think that I am a very private person who is not so fond of sharing highly-personal details. I might even delete this post.

Albert Camus once famously said, "In the depths of winter I finally learned there was in me an invincible summer". It is the end of winter in Hamburg. The roads are covered in snow sludge except where car tyres have formed black lines. I wish that Albert Camus' words would resonate within me. But as my boss has so correctly pointed out, "You've got winter on your brain!".

do you get:
snow, sun and seagulls. What a bizarre time of year it is – when the world
sinks into a grey, inky, darkness. I come from Hamburg Cape Town
and I must say, the weather in
is something you have to get used to. Slowly. Very slowly. But you do. Hamburg
And then, the extreme cold is like the extreme heat of a summer’s day. But what’s really hard: the sky that is eternally tinged in a grey, milky mess. And so, I treasure every winter’s day when the sky is blue – the seagulls are dancing in the air – screeching and enjoying the sun’s warmth.

Sometimes rappers just come across as being hilarious. There’s something about their poser gangster attitude that makes me smile. But hiding behind Professor Green’s potty mouth is a lad with a brain. The rapper recently toured with Lily Allen and clearly has, not only a big tatoo, but talent.
