life had been very busy lately but I have something really fun coming up and am in a very happy place right now, or just as happy as one can be with the deadline of the final thesis being like end of May?! Haha.
So what has happened? I went to Desden with my lacrosse team and we came second in the Lax in the Box tournament! Which is just insane! My knee was and is still hurting a lot though but coming second?!? So awesome! We even got a medal!!!
I’ve been at university almost all week long and working with the data from my eye tracking experiment! It has been nerve wracking but also very interesting and the whole thing has so much potential, I have to watch out not to get too much into it all as I’m only writing a bachelors thesis right now and not yet a masters!
On Sunday is the last game of this season and it is a win win situation as in its either us or the other team who will get a place for the play offs! So we want to win this game so badly and it would be just amazing to go to the play offs!!! It would be such a great ending to my time playing for Victoria Lacrosse Berlin!
Time is flying bye so so quickly. I still have so much things to organise before my move to Australia and I can’t really do any of them as I have my head focused on my thesis!
Weather in berlin is getting nicer and nicer and I’ve been wearing my Birkenstocks and dresses without tights! So awesome! Well I leave the house in the mornings with leggings and as soon as I’m at university the leggings go straight into my backpack 🙂
I went to a talk about the Russian Ukrainians crisis at the GMF in berlin and it was very interesting and I’ve learnt a lot!
But now I’m going to sleep. I have to get up extra early tomorrow cause the train personnel is on strike and I have no clue how easy it will be for me to get to work tomorrow morning as I have to take the Sbahn and not the Ubahn which I take to get to university…
Oh and tomorrow night we have lacrosse team night at my place! All the girls at mine and we will order food and talk and have a great time 🙂
I also hope to record a new podcast episode on Saturday with a special giveaway coming up!
So. I had big plans, very big plans. And then my normal routine came back and all the motivation and energy had run away…
I created so many posts and things I wanted to share in my head, I actually have a list written down of what I want to share but, life gets in the way…
So, today is Monday and I’m going to tell you a little bit about my week, what my plans are and what I want to do, and hopefully this will help me to organise my life a little bit better…
Monday: work on my thesis, go babysitting, organise with my flatmate for someone to sublease one of our rooms, transfer some money
Tuesday: work on my thesis, go babysitting
Wednesday: working, go to the library and get a book (Potsdam)
Friday: have the option to work, but not sure, if not, thesis!
Saturday: work on thesis
Sunday: work on thesis
My main goal for this week is to finish writing my research proposal!
Talk to my lecturer about the questions I have and
finish knitting my Nurmilintu, or well, I will run out of yarn soon anyway so should think about what to do then…
So time is flying by so fast right now. But that is usually the case when you have a lot to do and not really enough time to get everything done.
So since I came back I haven’t been home much, just been working, babysitting, at university, at my ‘real’ job, physiotherapy and acupuncture… Today I went to three of the mentioned places, left the house at 07:50 and came back around 21:35 ! Too crazy!
I did knit today which is really nice. Been watching Knit All The Things, a really nice podcast by Cara from Wales and it is really nice to watch a knitting podcast by a young person 🙂 And I love her english accent too! I’ve been catching up with her episodes so now I am up to date again and I knitted on my Pigeon Jumper for my niece in Australia. I’m on the first sleeve now. The body was done in Chile! Now I’m writing here and watching the first episode by Little Bobbins Knits but when I look at my watch I should rather sleep!
I cancelled tomorrows morning babysitting which I am happy about. I watched the two kids today and the big one got a stomach bug which I have the feeling I got too cause I am feeling really weird in my stomach. So I am not in the best mood right now. And I got my pictures which I took with my La Sardinia analog Camera in Chile and most of them are just not nice. I don’t know what happened. I used the camera a lot but this roll is just really bad quality and I can’t really explain it. I am super sad! I did take my big digital camera and another analog one but because of my friends telling me about another of their friends who travelled alone being robbed I was a bit too afraid to take the big cameras with me especially because I was wandering the streets by myself a lot and I don’t speak Spanish… I did take a lot of pictures with my phone but they got into stupid iPhoto, which I just hate…
But, I got my boyfriends christmas calendar all done and I might even post it tomorrow so I have less to put in my suitcase! Which would actually be really nice! I already have so much to take and it is always a question of weight at the end. Never the space always the 30 kg
Its been more then 24 hours that I am back from my trip to Chile and I wish I could already leave again.
My shared flat looks like a bomb has exploded, well no not that bad, but you can see, three men lived here without watching the space, kind of.
I also already went to work today, around 8,5 hours. We drove to Poland to shop but they had a massive national holiday so no stored were open but it was a nice trip which I got to do with O who I don’t see that often, so never mind.
I also went out for dinner with my three men that I live with to Toca Rouge here in Berlin and it was divine. I shared a crazy cabbage and baby octopus salad as a starter with E and the other two had some roast beef rolls and then for dinner I had really spicy crunchy Scampi with a Mango and Tomatoe Salad and rice, while E had fish and the other two each had something with chicken. After that we walked to find a nice bar for another beer and then went home where I found my washing machine ready to hand up to dry. No fun.
I also uploaded heaps of pictured of the yarn I bought in Chile, but I hope I manage to write about my adventures there in its own post!
And now, good night. I have acupuncture, university classes and physiotherapy waiting for me tomorrow!
