Countryside and Monopoly
Category: Uncategorized

Living on the countryside is a nice thing. I realize that everytime I stay at my parents. You don’t have to worry as much as when you live in a city, I think. You can leave your car in the driveway unlocked, you can leave your bike in the driveway unlocked, you can leave the house door open and don’t have to worry that some stranger comes into the house.

Back in Munich, while hasting through the basement of my building, I read on the doors “Caution! Lock doors! Thievery!“. Sure, that’s normal for big cities. A lot of people, a lot of people you can’t and don’t trust. You don’t even want to trust them.

After a few days at my parent’s place I’m not even in the mood on driving to Munich again. Oh, if I were rich and didn’t have to work. Life would be a lot easier.

The boyfriend Alex and I had a big and loud discussion today over something that is so far in the future, we actually shouldn’t discuss about that now. We did though, and it wasn’t the first time. It gets me all frustrated.

He visited me at my parent’s, which, of course, I appreciated very much. We started playing Monopoly one night and I discovered the joy of playing board games. Yes, people should do things like that and not sit infront of the stupid TV all the time.

Talking about TVs, I got a new one today :). It doesn’t have a VCR connection. Damn. But it’s bigger than the one I had before. Now I don’t know what to do, keep the small one with a VCR connection or the big one without. I’m sticking with the big one at the moment though. Gee!! Don’t I have problems, huh?! ๐Ÿ˜›
Oh yes, that’s the advantage of having two sisters which are 9 and 12 years older than me. They have lived in several apartments, have bought several things, and me as the youngest, will eventually be asked “Tracy, do you need a new TV? I don’t want it anymore.” “Tracy, try on those 20 tops and see if you want some. I don’t like them anymore” “Tracy, you’re moving? You can have my bed, carpet, shelves etc I had in my first apartment which I don’t use anymore”

Nice… most of the times ๐Ÿ˜‰

Fox? Vox?
Category: Uncategorized

A lot of people have personal sites. They have their own domain. Their own personal blog. To write their personal thoughts.

Now, when I have a site I pay for I’d want my blog to be there. What else should I put on the site? Of course, Art, Photos and maybe content for the visitor. But when you’re not into those things too much, your site is pretty much empty.

So why do site owners start blogging on sites where you sign up for? What am I talking about? VOX of course.

Now, I know with Vox you have your neighbors and you can decide who you want as your neighbor and who not. You don’t have to code anything, the site is nice-looking etc. But why would you want to move your blog there and not on your site?

I don’t know too much about Vox. Can you set your blog private so that other people can’t view it? Or can everybody view it – Voxers and Non-Voxers?

Vox is the new online trend, you can only get one through an invite. Now it’s something special “Who has an invite? I want one!” But actually, it isn’t that special at all, I think. You use a theme they have designed. That’s the biggest Turn-off in my opinion.

Oh, what do I know. I just think that people are going crazy with that Vox. But don’t get me wrong, I have a Vox account as well, which I set up, but I got bored quite fast.

What’s your opinion on that??

I’m about to leave to my parents for the weekend. My lovely boyfriend Alex gave me his car so that I don’t have to pay 10,50 Euro for a one way train ticket for a ride which takes only 35 minutes. That’s 30 Cent per minute. Way too much! When going by car, of course, I have to pay the gas, but isn’t the car just much more comfortable!?

The Ankle
Category: Uncategorized

The weekend was nice. Not great, but nice. The weather wasn’t all that good but the boyfriend and I spent as much time as possible outside.

On Friday, before we left, I brought out the trash. I was in a hurry, went to the backyard of my house and *BAM* – I twisted one’s ankle. Not the first time, no. The first time that happend, a lot of years ago, my band was stretched and I had to wear a plaster cast.

When something like that happens, when something happens to the inside of my body, I get very frustrated without even knowing if it’s bad or not bad. So I was depressed the whole time wile driving to Stuttgart, which made my boyfriend depressed, seeing I couldn’t laugh at one of his jokes.
So we drove to Stuttgart, me with my hurting ankle. On Saturday the boyfriend took me to the hospital (seeing there’s no doctor office open) to get my leg checked and because I’m a chicken when it comes to the inside of my body… as you know.
The doctor was nice, but just looking at him even made me tired. Who knows how long he has been working in his shift already. He told me there’s nothing wrong with my ankel – God Thanks – I probably just twisted it so much that the bone hit the ground and that’s what’s hurting now.

That’s the most “exciting” thing that happened that weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

One of those days Alex, the boyfriend, showed me Esslingen, a beautiful city. Unfortunatelly I didn’t have my camera with me. Next time.

Now I’m home in Munich again, working tomorrow at 1pm.

Sister vs. BF vs. Friend
Category: Uncategorized

“Can you please please please work for me August 14th?” – this was the SMS I got from one of my sisters. I’m bad at saying no to favors. I call the boyfriend, he says I should say no, “tell her we have plans with our friends”. We do have plans with our friends those days, so I tell my sister no.

That just made me notice that it so hard for me to say no when a family member or loved ones ask me for a favor…

I returned my Rain pants yesterday. I went to a few sport stores and tried on the sizes XS and S. I don’t know what the companies imagine, but XS fit over my boobs. The last store I went to had Kids rainpants. I took the biggest kids size (I think it was 176) and those were WAY too big… so I worked my way down in the sizes to find that size 152 in kids clothes fit me. I started laughing in the cabin because I was just so damn frustrated that all the damn RAIN PANTS are sooo big.

At least I only had to pay 14 Euro ๐Ÿ™‚ My original Rain pants cost me 100 Euro.

Tomorrow the boyfriend and I are driving to Stuttgart to spend a few relaxing days at his parents place. The weather here is beeing ugly the last and next few days/weeks??? It’s raining all day. It’s very annoying and depressing.

Why is it, that always when you have vacation, the weather gets bad?

So nervous
Category: Uncategorized

Oh gawd, my grades will be on the internet in 1,5 hours. I’m so damn nervous. Plus I have to look at the grades for the boyfriend, seeing he has no internet. And he wrote one exam (Visual Basic) which he has to pass. I’ll be more nervous for his grades than for mine. It’s not that bad when I don’t pass one exam but I’m hoping I did pass them all.

Today nine people out of my class sat in the university, in the hot university, having a photogrammetry class. Yeah, from 12pm until 7.30pm. Fun.

Tomorrow we’ll have to meet with one prof and we’ll talk about the excursion we’re making at the end of September. We’ll be going to Silvretta, surveying in the mountains. That’s what I spent my last pay-cheque on. I bought a very good rain jacket and some rain pants. Yeah, those two things cost so much that I won’t be able to buy anything the next month. But once in a while you have to invest in something like that, and I’ll have it quite some time in the future. Plus Austria is one hour away and I go hiking a lot, so it definatelly was a good buy.

Oh so nervous.

I’m tired already. I think I’ll organize my messy papers all over in this apartment. Then I’ll at least do something useful.
