A Move and a New Start

Hello everyone,

it has been a while and now it the time to finally shut this blog down and redirect you all to my new one which will, hopefully soon, start fresh.
I have moved 16 000 km to live on a different continent to finally be with the love of my life and I couldn’t be happier, life has taken some different turns from what we have planned this whole new start of life but everything is great. We are growing on all the changes to our Plan A but, you know, Plan B is great too.

So from this one on, this side is dead, come and keep me company at the new one!

Thank you all!

Just a quick one!

A lot has been and is going on at the moment, which is totally normal when moving across the world, so I am very sorry for the lack of information and posts on this blog for the moment.
I am trying to create a new, better side and have my whole yarn adventures a bit better presented for you. When it will be done you ask? I don’t know. I am writing applications for jobs and helping my boyfriend with his uni work at the same time while trying to find some time to knit, too.
So you see, it is very busy over here. And it’s winter! I have been to Melbourne during winter before and it is the same over again. For me this is just a very long autumn. It’s around 10-15 degrees every day but very windy and grey. But at the same time the sun can be very bright and warm you up in an instant but then, just wait a few seconds and you’re in the middle of a rain shower and you don’t know where to take cover!

Ok, I should better get back doing this data extraction for R.
I hope you all are spending your day with a bit more fun than I do ๐Ÿ™‚

Alive.

It’s been awhile, I know. My wordpress app on my phone is not working and I don’t have much time at the computer so, take this as my apology! But here I am.

The trip down south to my family was nice and I met up with some old, dear friends of mine and got to finally meet one of my oldest friends mini! She just looks exactly like her when she was young! Incredible!

The flight over to Australia was fine too and one of the first things over here was fixing my bank account und a tax file number so now I only need to find a job. For a while I might just work in hospitality, not sure yet.

The trip up to Queensland was very interesting too, my first Australian wedding, and very different to what I am used to from Germany. Oh well, I haven’t been to too many weddings anyway. But it was very lovely and I enjoyed it a lot.

Now we are back in Melbourne, looking for work, feeding cats and searching for an apartment.

I’m constantly tired and have no motivation doing much, still jet lagged ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Hope I find soon some time to post about all the latest trips etc.

Until then!

Countdown

the hours until I have to hand in my thesis are getting less and less and I am so excited to soon be able to do other things again like:

  • Knit
  • Record
  • Play lacrosse
  • Cook dinner from scratch
  • Watch movies
  • Read non related things
  • Plan holidays
  • Look for a new place
  • Organise my move
  • Plan my party
  • Pay all those bills
  • Clean my room
  • Do laundry 
  • Get a haircut

So excited you all!

FIVE days left…

Time is running and there is still a lot to do and then I am going away this weekend… Well I would probably not have done anything on Saturday even if I would have stayed in Berlin but, it does feel bad. Shouldn’t I be in front of my computer even if I would just stare at the screen? Well. I decided not to.
So in a few hours I am going away with my Lacrosse team for the last time in a long while probably and this is exactly a perfect reason why I decided not to stay home. Who cares if my thesis has these few mistakes? I won’t remember that in a few years but the fun I had on a weekend away with my lovely team girls! This is what I want!
And because I have a lot of finished knitting projects flying around that just need to be blocked, I did this during the moments when my internet was not working. And no internet, no work on my thesis. Bรคhm.

Blocking on my bed

Sorry for this very poor iPhone photo. The lighting is awful. My top lightbulb has been broken for a few days now, just have no time for stuff like this!
You can see my Nurmilintu, Saroyan and the Olivia Shawl. And yes I do double block so fronts and backs of cardigans match each other! Anyone else doing this too?
You might also notice that two shawls did not quite fit onto my bed, or was it me starting wrong? Anyway, even if I would have been more cautious, they are too big! Well too big for my bed, not too big for me ๐Ÿ™‚

ok. this was quick. I still have to pack and have dinner.
Lovely weekend everyone!

So I finally casted on a project for Leas and my Knit-A-Long!

What time is it again?

It is almost four o’clock, in the morning my dear readers! It’s insane. I don’t feel tired at all. I’m one of the many people that work better when it’s dark outside and there is less traffic and almost no people are online (but then with friends all around the world, this is not a reason anymore). But, working until almost four is maybe a bit, aehm, let’s call it problematic. Especially when one has to work at nine o’clock on Friday. So to break the habit I stayed awake until nine (!!!) on Tuesday and then had a four hour nap and hoped to get tired early but no, worked until late again. This is not a good rhythm. But I have no idea what to do about it… 

At least I got a lot of writing done and I am now onto the analysing part of my thesis and then conclusion and results and stuff. But mostly I am afraid of quotes and the appendix and list of references… Or maybe the statistics for my anlysing part? Aaaaah! This is all insane! 

Deadline 4th of June!!!
