Sundays in Berlin, specially in February, are pretty much like a black hole if you went out the night before. You wake up at two and it will be night again in no time, need one hour at least to find out first who you are, second what was the night all about, and third, why your legs are black and blue (again). No, it is not an easy life to remember nothing all over again. The walk of shame is on. But you’re pretty much too brain dead to focus on that matter anyway. The difference with Paris is, that in Paris, it’s no fun! You go out at 21h, cos all the bars will close at 2h. You need time to get drunk, and to socialize a bit. Most of the time you’re home around 3, not that bad. You still feel like shit when waking up, but you can see a bit of your day, you can make plans and so on. In Berlin you can’t! I mean, when drunk, at the top of the night, I will be all smooth and making appointment for the day after. “Yes, let’s meet at six, then we grab something to eat and the party is on again!”. Hmm. Well, no. Impossible, I’m not 18 anymore, my body needs at least two days of full recovery (food, crappy movies, and pyjama. Duh. So sexy) to be able to get my brain ready for a full week of work. continue reading…
This is it. We Are Berlin. A subjective feedback from my life in the city. But not only. In here, you will find shootings and weekly agendas, places to go or to avoid, parties to show up and music to discover. A mix of fashion, lifestyle and feelings related to Berlin.
What is the purpose of it? Well, since one year in Berlin, I do feel like a I am belonging to this town. And I love it. You need some time to get along with the recurrent loss in translation and the crazy weather. No, it is not such a cliché to talk about the winter. It is the reason of it all! Depression and moodiness are stuck into your bones for at least four months. And there is nothing you can do about it. We do all feel the same. It’s like sucking up the deeper dark of your soul, and you have to cope with it. We are all craving for spring, and we know it will be worth it.
It’s pretty hard to define precisely the modus operandi of this blog, and I don’t really care. You are welcome to read it, but the purpose of it stays in a personal thinking. There is no fishing for celebrity nor becoming the new hype thing. Being in Berlin is not the easiest life ever, as some might think it is. You do need to turn down your expectations, you do not find the best jobs ever. It is all about cutting corners and be happy with the little things you have. That’s find. But you need something to do that it is also totally you. I did not want to do it all alone. I am happy to collaborate with Megan Cullen and Marina Dellamore, that will be working on shootings, every week, and this is going to be great!
