Selfies: The Camera Is Dead, Long Live…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 30, 2015 in Photography |

In theory everyone who takes a self-shot, a selfie, uses a smart phone. That is what the manufacturers want us to believe, and that is what we mostly see out on the streets, in front of tourist sites and near to major catastrophes, fires and traffic accidents. The figures show that camera sales are dropping, […]

People Are Strange

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 11, 2015 in News & Opinion |

If anyone anywhere believes that the strangest creature on this small green planet is not the human, then I am sorry to have to tell them that they’re very naive! There is no doubt in my mind that the world would be a very dull place if people weren’t so strange, and a lot of […]

Can You Love America?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 26, 2015 in News & Opinion |

The long line of personal insults aimed at President Barack Obama over the years is unlikely to come to an end with the end of his term in the White House. The latest, deepest and probably most hurtful is that aimed at him by Rudy Giuliani, claiming that he does not love America. The comment […]

Just A Few Letters: Big Difference!

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 21, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

Sometimes it is good to know what you are writing about, to have paid attention in school. There are enough instances of people who do not know the difference between they’re, their and there or your and you’re. These, however, are something special. Screenshot Source: Twitter / Luke Hemmings Stan I will be perfectly honest […]

Selfies: Is An Apology Necessary?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on February 11, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

I sometimes think that society hasn’t got it all together yet. In fact, I’m fairly sure that this is true, and that society – as a generalized term – will never manage to get it all together in any way, shape or form even when it comes to the most simple of things such as […]

Twitter: Setting The Target Low

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 25, 2015 in Internet |

I seem to be hovering around the one thousand three hundred mark on Twitter, when it comes to people who follow my account. Sometimes it is slightly more, sometimes it is slightly less. Sometimes people follow me – with a Twitter fanfare – sometimes they silently disappear. I must admit, though, I have never thought […]

Freedom Of Expression And Speech Over Religion

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 20, 2015 in News & Opinion |

Do people really appreciate, let alone understand, what it is that they are marching in favor of? Do those same people understand the massive difference between what is being claimed as a Right, as a Freedom, and the Rights and Freedoms of those people on the other side of the street? The killing of so […]

No Service, No Sale

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 2, 2015 in News & Opinion |

I wouldn’t have believed it if I’d only heard about the course of events, but I was actually there and got to see the whole thing. Chances are no one else noticed me, otherwise perhaps things would have been different, but I was there, in the background, with my mouth hanging open in sheer amazement. […]

Art And Other Thoughts On Staying Here

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 21, 2014 in Personal |

Yesterday I wrote about the questions leveled at me, about the pointlessness of staying on in college, going back to the States, living a life of comfort. Today something which I have been giving a lot of thought to in recent weeks: staying here. Now, by staying here I do not mean the same as […]

Correcting My Language

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 12, 2014 in Immoral Conversations |

I think it must be because I do not look like an American that some people believe they can correct my use of my own Mother Tongue, especially when they have spent so much time learning the language in school. Today I was peacefully making a few notes ready for a future piece of writing, […]
