  • Something to tell the world!

    I'm Lorena, 17 years old and from Germany. My personality type is ENFJ-A (Assertive Protagonist; which basically means I'm very optimistic and extraverted, plan everything through, control my emotions and think before I act), if that helps you. I'm pretty into sports, music, reading and learning about new stuff. I LOVE motorcycles but won't make a driver's license (i tried once, but it didn't work out somehow). Trying to find a job currently, but still visiting school (very hard to combine those two aspects lol). I'm currently watching shameless (I can't watch numerous TV shows at once, completely overwhelming me) and reading if he had been with me by Laura Nowlin. My favourite hobby is making others laugh and just having a good time 🙂 (pretty creepy, that this just turns into an emoji by itself, send help!! lol)
    Also, I'm obsessed with greek mythology and learning new things about it every now and then. I love writing and reading own written stories, but I never finished one for whatever reason is there. Obviously, I love the vibe of letters, I have numerous penfriends who regularly receive letters from me and vice versa. I'll make a wall with letters and notes that are special to me (: My room is full of candles and I'LL BUY NEW ONES SOON!
    DON'T FIT IN! Break the stereotypes. Just live your life like you want to, don't care about what others think!!!

  • A trick or piece of advice

    Some wise lyrics for you:
    "You don't get thick skin without getting burned" ~21 pilots
    "You don't care for what they do, don't care for what they know"~Metallica
    "I hope you know only you can make you better." ~ nothing more
    And some other wise stuff:
    "Beauty is pain and there's beauty in everything."
    "The path is what your actual goal is."
    "You don't know their backstory."
    "The only thing restricting you is your mind."
    Idk why but I really stick to those quotes and I truly believe, everybody should remember these. They helped me through some rough times and let me discover that nobody is perfect and you can just better yourself and learn from your own or others mistakes. So don't be afraid of doing something, if it's good, you're fine, if it's bad, you can only improve.
    If you wanna do sth, just GO FOR IT. Don't ever hesitate, no matter what others might say, you'll regret not doing it. In idk, 50-70 years time, all your haters will be dead and don't care about anything you did. Because everyone is their own main character. So if you believe, STH could make you truly happy, do it. Nobody'll truly care, trust me.

  • A personal challenge

    I'm currently building up my own little business (just started a couple of days ago -> 10/9/23) and it takes a lot of my free time, naturally. Anyway, I love the work (crochet + project management) and I surely will continue doing this. It's a good way for me to unite my passion / hobby with money income. I'm afraid, I'll burn out due to the lack of free time and the overworking tho, but other than that, I'm really positive about that!

  • Something uncommon about me

    I actually deleted Instagram a couple of weeks ago. (Anyway, I re-downloaded it, BUT it's only for my "hobby account". I don't use tiktok at all and other than that I just use Snapchat and Pinterest (if you can count this as social media). I just decided, that Instagram takes too much of my time I could use for more productive things and it made me feel bad about my body etc. I noticed, it isn't really good for me to spend that much time on my phone just scrolling, so I deleted Instagram just to test if it would help. And eventually it did. I really start to like the idea of not scrolling, but on the other hand, a lot of contacts are just via Instagram and I don't wanna lose the connection. Anyways, I will handle this sometime, bur for now, I'm really happy with my decision not to use it.

  • I recently learnt...

    * Every individual is soo complex, you'll never know every part of them, doesn't matter for how long you know them or how much time you spend with them. There are parts they don't even know existed and probably don't even understand themselves. Moreover, there are parts that one just can't put into words, therefore noone knows these parts except the person we're talking about. So try your best to (re)act accordingly, cause you'll never know a person completely, not even yourself.
    * How dependant one's mood is from the mood of others. If the people surrounding you are in a bad mood, you'll eventually also be in said bad mood. So keep an eye on who you're surrounding yourself with.
    * If you wanna achieve something, just go for it! There'll always be haters and they'll try to put you down and don't see your own worth. Ignore their opinion, what really counts is what you want to do. Just go for it. Don't wait for the haters to stop hating, cause they won't. You can do anything, if you put enough effort and time into it.

  • I'm excited about...

    the change of society through time, jk, it's basically anything and everything. I always enjoy listening to your points of view and discuss (although I'll always lose, I'm really bad at discussing). If you feel burdensome, feel free to talk about it, I'll listen and try to help you out. I'm really honest and direct though, so please don't be shocked or anything, okay? Thanks (:

  • Personal skills

    I don't wanna sound weird or anything, but when you're at the point of reading my whole profile, you'll discover, I am pretty weird tbh. I like to crochet (currently up to a top and a plant; if you want pictures or anything, just ask (: ). I enjoy making others laugh, but who doesn't? So idk if this really counts as a special skill or anything. I am, in fact really organized, believe it or not. I find it hard to act spontaneous, but I love surprises. I can't meet up with people without asking myself once, what we should do, eat or talk about. It's a really bad habit, so if you have any ideas to make me more spontaneous, please help me lol

  • Living abroad for one year

    I would love to go to Italy, Australia, Sweden or Great Britain, (I know, a lot, butttt) I am really in love with the culture and all the stuff you can find there. I would most likely visit Italy (did an exchange for a week and then another one for three weeks once and I really miss it) to broaden my horizon regarding the culture and the FOOD!! I am in my 4th year of learning Italian in school right now (: my dream always was to visit Australia because of the animals and Sweden for the aurora and the landscape.

  • Cities and countries I have visited

    I visited:
    Belgium (idk where exactly, it was a family hike through some sort of bog)
    And idk what else. I love travelling but I don't like taking the plane (idk why, like, I'm not scared or anything, I just really don't like it lol). Also, I can't take a ship, I'm getting seasick. Anyway, I love to discover new areas on my own and just meet new people I could hang with. After finishing school, I'd like to travel through Europe for like 2-3 months by train with Interrail (maybe you know that?).

  • Favourite books/authors/films

    I am basically always reading. Currently, I'm reading "the serpent and the wings of night" by Carissa Broadbent. In general, I read a lot of dark fantasy / romance, but I'm pretty much into anything, I could read crime, a biography or a lexicon, as long as it's interesting, I'm on!

  • My proudest accomplishments

    to be where i am right now and keep going although I wanna give up sometimes (:

  • My interests in other cultures

    food, differences, similarities & literature. Basically, I wanna learn everything about your culture and if you're interested in German culture, you could always ask me!! I'd love to know as much as possible about any culture that's out there, so yeah. If there's something interesting about your country, culture or whatever, please feel free to tell me, even if I'm not asking ahaha

  • Making the world a better place

    take care of the environment and treat others respectfully. Always treat them like you wanna be treated and stuff. (I may sound like a teacher of a primary school setting the most basic rules, but it really doesn't work in our society nowadays, so I just wanted to remind you!!) There's still a lot of racism, sexism, oppression of minorities and the list goes on and on and on. I know, some may think, I didn't experience anything like that and that's right, but I still don't think it's ok to just discriminate anyone because of superficial reasons. I don't say you shouldn't point out your opinion, but just don't hurt anybody with it, please. Thank you (:

  • I wish people knew more about...

    How to read people and using it wisely. I don't mean in a manipulative way, but actually using the information to respond and react appropriately without hurting or offending the person. ALWAYS react calmly in verbal fights, it'll make you look more potent and like you're winning. Also, think before you speak, it'll take a lot of stress from you. You won't get into trouble as often, at least it worked for me.
    Since I started doing this, I didn't "fight" with a person once. I had some discussions about controversial stuff but I wouldn't consider it a fight.

  • A career without obstacles

    There isn't a career without any obstacles, but you can make the best out of it, and if it's fun to you, the obstacles just seem like a challenge you can easily overcome to get better and better at what you're doing. So choose wisely which career you wanna pursue :3

  • Life regrets

    I don't regret anything. I do acknowledge my mistakes, but I learned from them and they made me the person I am today. I'm pretty happy with myself so I don't regret doing any of this
