And does it matter if it’s fake or not?Even if the phrase “mirror selfies” isn’t in your daily lexicon, you likely know what it means: a selfie which, rather than being taken directly – camera-phone to face – is taken using a mirror, giving you a photograph of your own reflection.Last week the internet trope - a mainstay of influencers such a K...

Dank Corona ist meine Kaufsucht schlimmer denn je

Als im vergangenen Jahr zur sozialen Isolation aufgerufen wurde, scrollte ich mich erstmal durch alle Social-Media-Kanäle.

Es fing alles im ersten Lockdown an, während die Black-Lives-Matter-Bewegung weltweit Schlagzeilen machte.

Wie du umziehst, ohne dort jemanden zu kennen – 4 Frauen erzählen

Ein Umzug ist immer anstrengend: Erst musst du dir über all deine Besitztümer einen Überblick verschaffen, dann all das zusammenpacken, es zu deiner neuen Adresse schleppen, dich bei den Behörden ummelden, deine neue Nachbarschaft erkunden, um herauszufinden, wo der nächste Supermarkt ist… Diese Liste wird umso länger, wenn du nicht nur von einem Bezirk in den nächsten ziehst, sondern in eine neue Stadt – oder sogar ein neues Land, wo du niemanden kennst.
