Who is Johanna B.?
Today I’m a midwifery student who just found out that the second stage of labor has its own unique smell of blood, urine, pooh, sweat and amniotic fluids. Interesting! Let’s see who I will be tomorrow…
Bremen! You are so wonderful!?
Yes… No… Maybe… I don’t know… Can you repeat that question?
The Lord Of The Rings or Harry Potter?
Peer pressure. Living in a bubble of Harry Potter freaks (me excluded) I couldn’t choose The Lord Of The Rings.
Visions of Johanna? (Bob Dylan)
Not the reason why they named me Johanna, but a real good song! As I’m in a pretty transformative phase of my life there are no exact visions.
Loneliness adds beauty to life. It puts a special burn on sunsets and makes night air smell better? (Henry Rollins)
Replace loneliness with togetherness and I’m all in.
UNICEF or Greenpeace?
Rather than either or I’d go for more!
When an elephant is in trouble, even a frog will kick him? (Indian proverb)
Well, I’m a pacifist.
Did you ever cry while getting your tattoo?
Gotta be honest… once. After 5 hours of controlling my breathing and when my tattoo artist had finished coloring the already shaded parts on my solar plexus. I felt like he would simply reopen those already healing wounds. Torture!
Anticipation is so much better? (Delta 5)
Being nervous and unable to concentrate? Hell no!
Does meditation really make us better people?
Inner tranquility and peace makes us better people as it influences our interactions. I understand we can gain that by looking inwards and reflecting on ourselves and thoughts to be able to take care of real matters. Possibly.
Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
Well… I guess one year of philosophy class wasn’t enough to answer this question properly.
Is it possible for an animal to be reborn as a human in its next life? Why shouldn’t it?
Well… there are humans acting like animals. Why shouldn’t it be possible, when they say we can be reborn as an animal? Is it a one-way street? I hope not.
In several ways. Evidence-based. Let’s have a proper chat about it!
Top name for a girl?
Emma. It means “whole” or “universe”. Expression of my spiritual side.
Top name for a boy?
Henry? Ben?? Theo??? Not quite sure.
Power to the children? (Herbert Grönemeyer)
Impressively empathetic and creative humans that are still connected to the nature of our lives. Adults could learn so much by putting down their egos and taking children more seriously. A definite yes!
If you could have a working lunch with anyone living or dead who would it be? (The Office)
Michael “Curse” Kurth.
Your goal in life? To witness a miracle?
The miracle of living in a social society. Trying to go with the flow of life, my goals are pretty much changing every day.
