about the girl

Whaaat?! So you really want to know more about me? I’m warning you, I’m really boring. (Plus, it’s super awkward to talk about myself.)


I’m Tessi and in my second year of med school! I used to have that dream of being that super book blogger (which I’m still trying to achieve btw) but frankly, my studies take up so much time now, I am often content to just spend some quality time with me, myself and a book on a sofa with some tea, just breathing, breathing, breathing.

I also am: A book page sniffer, potterhead, lover of stars. Infected with wanderlust.

Here are some fun facts about me:

  • I’m a German native, but I was a student at an all-girls boarding school in England for two years in total. You guys, I swear I had some of the best times of my life there. The school building was very similar to Hogwarts, too! Also: Who run the world — girls!!!
  • The British food though…nah.
  • Speaking of Harry Potter: I took the Hogwarts House Quiz three times, and each time I was sorted into Gryffindor. I’ve always thought I was more of a Ravenclaw, though.
  • I’m currently obsessed with the TV-show How to Get Away with Murder. Like, the way the characters talk themselves out of murder — it’s so impressive!
  • My favorite drink is tea, with Darjeeling tea being my all-time favorite (edit: I think I like jasmine tea better than Darjeeling tea now. Just saying.)
  • I still want to learn at least one language in my life, with French, Spanish and Russian on the top of my list.
  • I love pugs!
  • My hometown has the highest annual amount of precipitation in Germany (which basically means it rains even during midsummer). You think I should’ve learned to always take an umbrella with me now when cruising around my town — no, I haven’t. Unfortunately.

If you want to learn more about me and my life beyond blogging, here’s a list with some random facts about me.

    • Same here!!!!! ♥ (Although I do have to say the series finale was a little bit disappointing. But I still love the series though!)
      But ehm, no. Nate is WAAAAAY hotter than Chuck Bass. Nate Archibald ftw!!! 😀 Oh, and Ed Westwick’s voice was soooo weird during the first seasons of Gossip Girl. I think he was trying to speak with a hoarse voice on purpose then to conceal his British accent but ultimately, it sometimes felt as if he was just mumbling around! 😀 It always sounds so strange when people from the UK try to speak with an ‘American accent’.


      • True. Oddly enough, Daniel Radcliffe sounds BETTER with an American accent IMO. I’m really looking forward to watching him in ‘Horns’. Normally his voice grates on me.

        I wish they hadn’t effectively cut Jenny out of the last couple of seasons of Gossip Girl. I think it was more to do with her music commitments? But I liked her character a lot!
