Just keep BRAINS!

Cemetary-Travels and the life of a german Darkling.

Flap your wings!

Hey there, Internet!

This being a sticky for a while… I am FAR behind visiting your blogs, approving and replying to your comments. Reason is that I will be moving, starting a new job November, 1st and still on my flathunt. So these days I still work my nightshifts, then drive 3 hours to Oldenburg, apply for a flat or two and then head back to work, most days sleeping in my car, eating some fries or other fast food (um, mainly fries because of gluten thing though). I read all your comments and am happy for all the love you sent especially during the past few weeks, don’t worry, I am still here and I am fine (well, will be). And as soon as I found a flat and the moving part is over Justkeepbrains will be back to normal, until then sadly there will be this lack of things😄 I am sorry.❤

Hope everything is fine on your side of the screen! See you soon!

Another house moving update post

Hey there, Internet!

After applying for 30 flats in Oldenburg I finally got accepted for one. Actually that was my 2nd favourite flat and so you probably can immagine how happy I am right now. All letters have been sent out with the new adress. Most of my things are packed, only what is needed for the few days until moving day are left outside. Moving day this year is as well Halloween, that’s the downside, nearly no time to go shopping for home decor and presents for my friends and family, no party because house moving vampires took all my energy and still no workout because of lack of time and energy, this might be the first year ever I am desperately waiting for November to be here. The To-Do-List is getting smaller each day though and I am slowly catching up with my online life as well, found my way back to twitter, next will be instagram and then the biggest project, catching up with your comments, your blogs and my blogposts and putting some youtube things in my schedule as well, planning to be fully back with my posting schedule and everything by November, 15th.

Until then I hope you are having a great time and see you soon!

Anyone else who will miss this year’s Halloween due to some drama? Have a nice evening!


Batfit 16-09 & Gear review weighted gloves by ‘Mov it’

Hey there, Internet!

* Batfit is a ‘challenge group’ by our dear Professor Z where all kind of (darkly inclined) people try to motivate each other to get healthier or change / do whatever in their lives to feel better.

Health update: Pain is still down on a level I can take. No painkiller since August, 4th!

Emotional update: Back to normal. Of course there are some bad moments, I am human but not as bad as last month!

Body update: currently at 75kgs, going down – hoping to reach the ‘6s’ this year!


I think this is quite some good changes, really looking forwards to the next few months to see how close I can get to my 23/25-yr-old stomach!

Workout update: Still 1hr / 4days each week. Afterwards covered in more salty water than any ocean can offer and with a skin more red than any sunburnt person I’ve seen this year.

Gear upgrade: I already mentioned this in the Batfit Facebook group, this month I got some 2kgs weighted gloves from Amazon. Actually wanted to get bigger weights than the tiny 2kg ones I currently use but since the others seem to have different materials as middle part, which is simply perfect on mine (no sweat, no nothing) gloves were my choice this time. Started adding them on a day off work because first time with new gear I like to start with double time and time to rest afterwards! I still only managed to go through half of my workout but this made me set this months short term goal!

1610 batfit gothic fitness health weightedgloves movit review

Short review: I bought the Mov it (Power and vitality) 2kg weightd gloves / wristbands from Amazon. They had mixed reviews but with 9.99€ I could not resist. They were available in three colors (red, blue and black – of course went with black) in 4 different weights (0.5kgs-2kgs, filling depends on what size you buy), fabric is neoprene and I hope maybe this will prevent sweat from sticking inside so they won’t smell bad after a few times of use. Some reviews mentioned sand falling out of their weights but since 2kgs are not filled with sand I can’t tell if this is what you get with the less heavy ones, mine arrived in a good condition. The Velcro closure is nice but I have tiny wrists so they are a bit loose on me, could fix with the thumb loop but those feel too tight and the fabric here is a bit rough on my skin. Still I am happy with them and for that kind of money I think it is a good investment in building muscles on my arms and I think I will do some researches on other gadgeds that might or might not help with my long term goals!

September Batfit goal: Go through entire workout with the weighted gloves. Achieved but probably will have to start at the beginning again when house moving thing is done because when working nightshifts, then driving 3hrs to attend a flat viewing and apply for it, then driving back 5 or more hours because of traffic jam your freetime activity  is trying to get some sleep in your car and decide if you want fries or coleslaw for dinner…

Who else is on batfit or maybe any other groups to get healthy / happy? Have a nice evening!


Random 16-09

Hey there, Internet!

Monthly Post of Random Pictures / Thoughts & Questions / Links and other things that happened during the past month (or since writing last random post) and would not fit into another post…

1609 pumpkinspicelatte psl starbucks gothsinhotweather summertoautumn germany 1609 random goth tattooedgirl pokemon pentacle fledermausbrille glasses mua shavedhead germany 1609 shadow rippedfabric gothic art

left: Pumpkin spice latte transitioned to a frappucchino because it is that time of year again but far too hot for a regular coffee! center: Job and flat hunt is keeping me busy but I refuse to transition to a no-makeup & jogging pants look. right: Sometimes it is the tiny things you enjoy, ripped fabric that randomly creates pretty shadows on your walls for example!

Maybe these thoughts / questions would be useful as inspiration or someone knows the answer? (If none of these, hopefully at least they would be entertaining.)

list-bat-png So I bought my new hairdyes on eBay just to find one tube has already been opened. that and paying 10GBP shipping for each item bought while they send all in one package… No communication with the seller or they at least won’t answer. Not so happy but the only place I currently know about where I can buy the dyes these days.
list-bat-png 2016 obviously is a year when, once again, the quality of Halloween decoration that is available here in Germany, has increased. Due to moving and my ‘kind of’ shopping ban I didn’t buy a lot though. (Compared to my usual Halloween shopping habits, but was a bit weak on my ban, but it is Halloween season and for that I did good… Maybe will do a haul post / video within the next weeks?)
list-bat-png Wondering why we get random nightmares, I do understand when something related to the topic happens in your life those days but I don’t remember having a bad experience with my teeth lately (got them done after 10 years of fear and panick attacks on my way to the dentist in 2015) and now I had a nightmare about them being the way they used to be over night and doctors telling me they could not do anything about it anymore. Ugh, so happy it was just a dream!
list-bat-png My facebook feed somehow exploded, Rob Zombie was futured on a vegan something cover. Being vegan is not a bad thing but somehow there are people you would not think that they were vegan unless you follow them on social media, good to know though!

This month I had nearly no freetime due to job hunt, so I am a month behind answering your lovely comments even though I’ve read them all but since I also want to visit your blogs when you comment on something those comments will have to sleep a little longer… Sorry for that, I will catch up as soon as real life is coming back to normal! I also am aware of the fact that there was a lack of posts and a lack of everything (and a lack of links and music in this monthly random post) and I am afraid, I don’t know how much I will be able to do for the blog in October since the job hunt was successful ( very❤ , yay! ) and now I have to look for a flat 200kms away from my current home. This means to drive 2-3hrs x2 each time that there is a flat to look at / to apply for (maybe 2-3 times a week). Since I am still working fulltime as well you can immagine how little time is left for everything else (aka packing, meeting friends, blogging, sleep,…) Please wish me luck for the flat thing is driving me insane!

What has been inspiring for you this September? Any plans for October? Have a nice evening!
