We dream our dreams and sometimes they take us places we never anticipate. But they are our dreams, and we go where they lead.  – Tess Gerritsen

Welcome, dear Reader! Welcome to my happy place, where I let of creative steam or just vent about what bothers me at the moment, share the struggles of a University Student, sports, friendship, family and physical as well as mental health. Though the content might not always be positive I wish this to be a positive and safe zone, where everyone is welcome to stay.

You might ask “Why bubblewrapped?” Let me explain: As a child I loved to pop the bubbles in bubble wrap and as an adult I relish in the meaning of wrapping something in it to keep it safe. I like the metaphor of being wrapped in bubble wrap to keep me safe and from getting broken. Of course that is most definitely not the solution to lifes challenges, but it inspires me to think out of the box. Also I of course was highly influenced by McFly’s “Bubblewrap”. I highly recommend listening to it! Here are part of the lyrics that really stuck out to me:

I wish I could Bubble Wrap my heart
Incase I fall and break apart
I’m not God I can’t change the stars
And I don’t know if there’s life on Mars
But I know you hurt
The people that you love and those who care for you
I want nothing to do with the things you’re going through

This is the last time
I give up this heart of mine
I’m telling you that I’m
A broken man who’s finally realised
You’re standing in moonlight
But you’re black on the inside
