Jobsworth: A Little Thought Goes…

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 8, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

For anyone who doesn’t already know it, I travel a great deal by bus. Every college day I make my way to the local bus station, climb into a bus which takes me to Bremen, change over to a tram which takes me almost to the college door and, every evening, I do the same […]

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 […]

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 […]

Je Suis Charlie: The Final Censor

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 8, 2015 in News & Opinion |

It is one thing to remove a few cleavages because a censor does not feel them to be appropriate for a modern-day audience, it is quite another thing to use a weapon to perform an act of censorship. As I wrote about the Chinese censorship the other day, about the banning of a film by […]

Shock, Horror And The Art Of Clickbait

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 1, 2014 in Internet |

Have you ever seen something which really grabs your attention, either in real life or here in our virtual world, gone into or clicked through to see what it is all about and discovered that there is nothing there of interest? Or, worse still, that the attracting headline, title or offer bears absolutely no resemblance […]

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 […]

Response To The Death Of An American Soldier

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 9, 2014 in News & Opinion |

Ever really wondered how the death of an American soldier is received by Americans? Ever taken a look at how people react when a soldier is killed on American soil? Believe me, I don’t think that you want to; it is akin to the more rabid gun owners of the fair land, who discount the […]

Selfies: Even The Youngest Child

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 8, 2014 in Internet |

How many of your friends and relations post photographs of their children on the Internet? I’m fairly sure most would say all of them do: there is something cute about a child and, of course, our child is far cuter than all the others.

Review: The Curvy Girls Club

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 17, 2014 in Articles and Reviews |

You might just as well give up right now, don’t even think about it, don’t seek any remedies; retreat back into your hole, under your stone, and regret everything. Look at it this way: you’re over thirty; you have one or two children who take up all of your time; that baby-fat is there to […]

Courage: Death On Your Own Terms

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 14, 2014 in News & Opinion |

Brittany Maynard has, for some people decided to take the easy way out: she has planned her own death for November 1, and already has the medication to carry it through. She is suffering from cancer and will die sooner rather most people would wish and, if the diagnosis is correct, her death would not […]
