update or OMG 10000 visitors!

First of all, I passed the exam I was talking about in my last post and I passed it surprisingly well.
I did not expect that outcome, when I went home that day.
Second: The expectations of the second semester being more relaxed were plain stupid. :D
Yes, I do not have to attend that many classes anymore, but still somehow I have barely any time for myself.
So much to do, lab reports, homework to hand in, preparing for lab sessions etc.
I did not even get to start preparing for the exams yet. *sigh*
I am already looking forward to the day when I can join the workforce, do my ten hours at the lab/office and then can go home and don't have to think about work until the next morning. :)
Third: The World Cup!
Of course I have to make time for that! :D
I did not get to see our first game last monday because class was over only 30 minutes before it began and I have a one hour commute and I still had so much stuff to do that I couldn't really watch the second half either, but I watched last night. Soo exciting! I can't wait for the game against the US on Thursday.
It's kind of weird that England and Spain are already out, though. I was hoping we would play either of them in the final. :D

Well, this is just an assortment of random thoughts, but I figured with more than 10000 (WOW) visitors on here I should post something again, and I hope the next entry will be a bit longer.
Until then, have a great time y'all!

Sunday



 I told myself I would blog more often again, so here we go.
The past days I was very busy relaxing.
Somehow I could not get myself to do something for university because I am still waiting on the verdict about the exam. Before I know I passed that I just don't have the motivation to study.
I know I should use the time to catch up on things that did not get enough attention during the past semester but somehow I just can't. So annoying.
I did start to workout again.
I did "Banish Fat Boost Metabolism" twice last week and it really kicked my butt.
I did not exercise since last September and my body makes sure I won't forget that..
Since now I have people living underneath me, I feel kind of reluctant to exercise because I am afraid I bother/annoy/disturb them with jumping and stuff.
But I NEED to exercise, can't afford the gym and just running doesn't cut it.
So I decided to start with BFBM instead of the Shred since the Shred contains even more jumping.
I put sonething under my exercise mat and do the jumping on the mat and just hope for the best.
When they complain I have to figure out something else.
Maybe buy a rug and put it underneath everything else.
I also started to eat better/healthier again. I am looking into reipes and tried some already.
Maybe I will post about that one day but since these are all recipes I found on the internet there is not that much to tell about but posting the link.
Have to think about that.
For now I wish you all a good start into the new week!

Hey, it's me, again.

I am so sorry for neglecting the blog for such a long time.
I think this is the longest period of time I did not blog.
But life happened.
Nothing serious, nobody died or something.
It just got crazy.I had to move for my Masters program. The act of finding an apartment itself would provide enough fodder for it's own blog.
But, no time to write it.
Since I lived in the Rheinland (near Cologne and Bonn which I dearly miss) and got accepted at a university in Bavaria driving over to look at places was not that easy.
I went down there three times, the first time to enroll and look at places, the second time just to look at places and then one time to receive the keys.
I called about 50 places, out of that I got to see around 15 if I remember right and handed in applications for all but three.
Then, one day I went online at a bookstore, saw new listings, which were just put up and called the realtor.
We made an appointment for the same day, I looked at the place and liked it.
I told her I would like to rent it and how we would proceed now.
She said she liked me and would recommend me to the owner.
Two days later after signing the contract and paying the hefty realtor fee I went home.
A week after that I went back to get the keys and a week after that I moved in.
I really like my place even though it has it's downsides.
No balcony. And it's pretty far away from school (1 hour commute one way) and pretty expensive. But also pretty big.
I would have preferred something smaller and cheaper but I have to be glad I at least found something.
I will stay here during my Master program and am not looking for something smaller and cheaper.
I don't think I can handle another move anytime soon.
Plus, I had to go through a realtor to get this place and for what I had to pay her, I feel I should stay here for at least two years.
Now I live in the most southern province of Germany while my Mom lives in the most northern one. Not fun.
I had no internet in the beginning which was not that big of an issue since I still had my phone for checking emails and suff.
Way worse was that I had no fridge for 10 days. I apparently survived but it was really annoying.
School started pretty soon after my move and was crazy from the beginning.
I was accepted into the Master's program under the condition that I retake some classes from their Bachelor program.
Since I was told it would be normal to do the first semester of the Master and fulfill requirements at the same time, I ended up doing 48 credits this semester.
I do NOT recommend that at all.
I had to take an exam for 4 classes of the Bachelor program and when I passed them I can hand it in an  will be done with the requirements.
I am still waiting for the results.
Now I have time to relax a bit and more important to rework the classes of the Master program.
I did not have any time to even go over my notes again or read further into some things during the semester after doing the stuff that HAD to be done like lab reports and homework that had to be handed it.

So, that's where I am now.
If I passed the exam the next semester should be way nore enjoyable and I should find more time for blogging again! :)
