We won and I can't wait for the next game.
Before I didn't know what to think since I didn't know anything about our team shape but now I think that this can be a great world cup for us. :)

But I also studied for 6 hours straight today, so I don't feel bad. :)

I think I am hooked

after watching the game USA-England yesterday.
I still will not miss classes for that but I think I might watch more games than I had planned. :)

hello again

It's been a while, I know, but somehow I didn't find the time to blog.
I did find the time to change the design in between though. :)
Let me think about what happened since my last post...
Oh, I know, we had a workshop thing about the study buddy program where we learned stuff like cultural differences and where we have to register our study buddy and stuff.
I don't have one assigned yet though.
Quite interesting.
The organizers ordered pizza one day and pasta the other one.
There was so much pizza left that me and some friends took the  rest home and ate it that evening while watching the eurovision song contest.
That was a really fun evening especially after Germany won which nobody expected. :D
School is busy as usual.
We had to write one huge lab report whose deadline was approaching and so this consumed many hours.
Luckily we were able to hand it in on Monday, because this past week I had lab sessions 4 out of 5 days.
It was ok but I didn't find much time to do something else.
The first of this semesters  finals is less than 4 weeks away and I have to do some serious studying.
I spoke to fellow students and they all feel quite the same, this semester is so demanding that there was not much time left to study before with all the lab reports, practical classes and presentations.
A few people dropped out during the semester too.
In September of 2009 we started out with 60 persons, now we are a bit more than 40 left.
Wow.
To add to the stress I have been sick the past week.
Actually I just had pain in my ear and when I finally went to see the doctor for that, she prescribed me some penicillin.
Did it help?
Well, let me put it that way:
My ears are fine now.
But...this medicine really upsets my stomach.
I didn't feel like drinking coffee all week and this made me go through some heavy withdrawal symptoms.
I heard that this could happen before but I never though one could physically feel it.
Wow!

Oh and the big topic here in Germany:
The soccer world cup.
I do enjoy the atmosphere and I am passionate about the games and especially Germany's performance in those games, but the timing is a bit unlucky.
The finale is the night before a big exam for example and the next weeks I need for studying.
Will I watch the finale?
I don't know.
This will depend on how well prepared I feel for exam and if Germany is playing.
I actually have fellow students who will skip classes or leave lectures early in order to watch the game.
Well they can do what they want but if they try to change times for classes to watch games I get mad.
I understand that not everybody is crazy about soccer (yes, really) and changing times is inconvenient too, so people need to know what is more important to them.
I prefer my education over soccer.
I think I will watch some of the games in between though when I get the chance.

Well, I think this pretty much covers is all for now.

I won't promise to write sooner again (didn't work out last time :) ) but I will try.

Have a great weekend everybody!
