One does not simply not read this text

Viktoria, 23, student. I never liked the name Viktoria precisely for the reasons my parents loved it: universal and common. Today, I am glad to have such an easy name that can be understood everywhere and even has a cameo in the NATO phonetic alphabet, the male version at least. Also, it means “conqueror” and no one conquers the hearts of fictional characters like I do. One of my obsessions is dogs – I love dogs. My four-legged companion is a 13-year-old Yorkie named Sunny and she literally is the sunshine in my life. When I’m not looking at my dog, I look at the screen: big screen, small screen, nothing under 480p though. Movies, TV shows, talk shows, podcasts – I love and consume them all. In between, I take breaks and write down short sketches, dialogues or general thoughts I have about stuff. Friends and family are important to me and I keep my relationships open, honest and full of references no one but me understands (with my friend Leonie often being the exception). If I had to choose one motto I live by, it would be “Not all those who wander are lost”, which is a passage from a poem in the first The Lord of the Rings book. I take it as motivation but also consolation and/or excuse when I’m struggling with plans for my future or finding the right address.
