Ten on Tuesday

1. What colour are your toenails painted?
They are not painted.
2. What colour are your fingernails painted?
They are not painted either..
3. What is your favourite brand of nail polish?
I don't have one.
4. As the norm, do you DIY your nails or get mani/pedis?
It's DIY now. Back  in the States I got them done thought.
5. Have you ever had a gel mani? Do you recommend it?
Nope. I considered trying one though but only because I don't have nice nails. Some of them are really weak and break pretty often. If I got one I would just let them look natural though,  no art class on my nails..
6. What is the last movie you watched on television? (TV, Netflix, Redbox, etc.)
Well, that's a good question. I actually don't remember when I watched TV the last time. It might have been "He just is not into you" or whatever it's called but I did not watch the whole thing.
7. What is the last movie you watched in the cinema?
Pirates of the Caribbean IV in 3 D and original voice. 

8. Is there a movie that everyone talks about as if it is a classic but you haven’t seen?
9. What is your favourite movie soundtrack?
I don't now, I loved the Lion King one. I have to check that I guess.
10. Have you ever seen a movie and thought it was better than the book it was based on?

It's so nice being home

Even though I had a hard time falling asleep because it is so quiet out here and I need the wailing of ambulances racing by to fall asleep I enjoy this quietness right now.
I just took a shower with hot water for the whole time.
Now I am sitting here, dog by my feet, coffee next to me and wait for my Mom to come back so we can have a nice (late) breakfast together.
Life is good. :)

Study hard, party harder...

...or so they say.
I have to admit, now that I got my life back after the exams I really live life to the fullest and am totally enjoying my life right now.
Last week I went to three farewell-parties.
This Thursday I went to the museum with a friend.
At first I was hesitant and just went because apparently I once agreed to go there with her.
And I am so glad I went.
We had a great time there. So much fun.
Afterwards we went to have lunch at a Japanese place where I went once before and always wanted to go back there because the food was so delicious.
But for some reason it never happened and so I suggested it, when she said she felt like fried noodles.
And we both liked the food there.
My highlight of the summer so far was the Papa Roach concert in Saarbr├╝cken, hands down.
I asked a friend to come but ended up going alone and still had a great time.
I made it to the first row and had an awesome view.
Papa Roach was great as usual and so were the support acts.
Yashin was one of them, if you want to look them up. :)
The only thing I did not like was that Papa Roach just played 1:15 h.
I booked the first train in the morning for the trip home instead of the last train of the evening because I was scared I would miss the end of the show if I had to catch the train.
Turns out there would have been plenty of time to catch that train.
Since I bought a special offer I was bound to the certain train at 3:48 am. I could have changed the ticket but that would have cost me at least 20 Euros.
So I sucked it up and spent 5 hours at the station. First I was at Burger King. They have two levels there and I sat upstairs, had a very late dinner and read my book. When I came back down they had already locked the doors. *oops*
But they were really nice and I was able to leave. :)
Then I went to the waiting hall in the station and sat there.
After an hour or so, the federal police showed up and asked me where I was going,
After I told them they said it was OK if I wanted to stay here but the station would be locked up for some hours and I would not be able to leave.
That was fine with me, since I had no intentions to go anywhere. :)
So I kind of slept there for some hours, then got on the train, dozed there, changed trains, dozed some more and was home by 8:30 am. :)
I went to bed and slept some more hours.
Really exhausting but totally worth it.
Yesterday I went to a barbecue.
It was really fun and turned into a night long pub crawl.
I left the house around 4:30 pm and figured I would be home by midnight, but then it was 6 am by the time got home.
Those spontaneous outings sometimes are the best.
Fun times with great people.

But I think I did enough partying for now.
I need a break.
Tomorrow I am going home to my Mom's house for two weeks and will relax there.
A much needed break before I come back to study more for the exams in September.
Planned are some outings with my Mom, maybe a trip to the beach, barbecues with the family... Can't wait.
