Why is it, that lately I am constantly annoyed by someone or something, even if it is just small things? I really start to question myself – is it really the others or is it just me? Am I such an unsatisfied person who constantly has to pick fights and starts perpetual nagging about everything? Usually it is gossiping colleagues, former friends annoying the hell out of me, and even people I do not even know (and who do not know me for a matter of fact, what still does not stop them from making inappropriate remarks) which bring me “up on the palm” (German saying, does not make sense in English at all but it is still funny to just translate those saying and throw them into a conversation/text for the fun of it).
A girl I know recently wrote a blog entry how she changed over the last two years. She found (I think) a poem from back then and wrote some stuff about how you should always be yourself and go your way in order to be happy and all. She also wrote about that she tried to change to become a better person. Blablabla – the usual stuff which everyone knows. Not that it is not true and that I disagree. But can you really change who you are? SHOULD you change who you are? Besides the fact that it proves to be really hard to change your character (in any kind of direction) on purpose, is not your character the thing that makes you to the person who you are – with all your flaws and of course also your good sides? It goes without saying that you should always be honest to yourself and behave in a way that you can live with. But changing who you are to please others? I know that I would feel fake and as if I am acting. And I am pretty sure others would notice as well.
Change comes with time and not on purpose. You will change in one way or another. You will get altered by good and bad experiences. But definitely not by will.
And it does not stop. The new Chanel Le Vernis nail polish for the spring of 2011 is called „Black Pearl“ and has the number 513. It is a grey color with a greenish hint. And of course I love it. I am really becoming an addict here.
Hope you like it as well.
My newest obsession: headbands. You are able to change every hair-do and make it less boring by adding some hair accessories and within a second a bad-hair-day turns good.
I have always liked all sorts of headbands and recently bought one with leaves on them (a bit Greek-ish goddess like – see picture above) and one in a kind of stretchy material with feathers on the side (according to the fiancé it looks more like a costume than a hair accessory but I do not care). Below you can see a similar looking one (my one was apparently sold out already – HA, so people DO like it) which I also got today.
But apparently my head is not made for any kind of headbands (or Alice bands as the inelastic ones are called in the UK). The ones which you slide into the hair (the Alice bands) start to hurt behind my ears after a few hours and make it impossible to wear them afterwards. And the soft ones with stretch tend to not stick to my stupid hear form either They only way I am able to wear them, is to pull them over my whole head and hair in a hippie-look way. I do not mind at all as I think in general it looks great – at least on other people. I am not so sure how I look though. Until now I did not dare to wear it like that but I definitely have to start trying. But I got to work on that beach hair look which absolutely has to go with the head band.
I also LOVE some cat ears (of course a headband with cat ears) which I had seen on every display dummy in Magasin in Copenhagen and in the magazine they bring out every once in a while. I even tried to make Christoffer steal one for me off the dummies (of course he did not want to). But now I found a similar looking pair at ASOS and I LOVE them. Cannot wait until I got it in the mail.
Due to recent complaints from some of my readers (you who you are, lol) that my blog became boring, I once again want to point out: I am not a professional writer, not even an aspiring one. Dear I-am-bored-by-your-posts-but-still-keep-on-checking-for-new-posts-on-a-frequent-basis-readers: the exit door is at the top, to the right. This blog is mainly for the purpose of friends and family being able stay updated. Okay? Ok. If you are bored: do not read my blog. If you do not like my posts: do not read them. It is as easy as this…
If you still keep on reading my posts I thank you very much. Just do not expect too much. This is just for my own pleasure
It seems like I am currently put on hold as I have to wait for everything. Waiting for time to pass by, waiting for decisions to be made, and waiting for dates to be set, so that I can start more serious planning. Besides the first two obvious things (waiting for February and waiting for KU admission), I was waiting for my exam dates for this semester as it depends on those dates when I would be moving.
I will have to take four written exams and I finally got the remaining dates today. My first one (Information Economics) will already be on the 24th of January, which I am quite please about. Usually exams at the department of Economics are scheduled for the first two weeks after the last classes (in the spring/summer semester), and for the first week after classes (in the fall semester). In my case this would be the week from the 07th – 11th of February 2011. As we only got one week for all the exams in the fall/winter semester, the 3rd year Bachelor exams are often already schedule during the last week of classes, to take the exams a little bit apart from each other. As long as you do not have any 1st and 2nd year exams left to pass, no problems should occur with this schedule. As Information Economics is a 3rd year class, I expected it to be scheduled earlier, but not that early. But as I have another 3rd year class (Innovation and Technology Economics) to pass, which is scheduled for the 2nd of February, I am quite delighted of those dates, as it is unusually spread out time-wise. And that of course guaranties me more passed exams and maybe even better exam results. Today I also got the scheduled exam dates for Math and Econometrics. Econometrics will be on the 9th, and Math on the 10th of February. Yeah for not heaving to write two exams on one day (it happened before, once even three exams), yeah for not having to write an exam before 10 o’clock (I am an early bird, but I prefer 10 instead of 8 when it comes to exams due to late night studying), and yeah for being done on the 10th (as that means I can move in time for the first IMECO event of the year 2011).
So now I can finally start the more serious planning as it seems that my moving day will be the 10th of February 2010. Cannot wait, cannot wait, cannot wait… I looked up various car rental services and in the end the cheapest solution (and most convenient one for everybody) is to rent a car here in Bielefeld on the 10th right after my exam, drive it all the way up to Denmark on that day, and hand it back in Copenhagen the next day at noon (and head over to the first even straight after). It should work out perfectly I think. Now Christoffer is thinking about coming down to help me move but I have to find out how much more it would be. Well, it would be only 39€ if we buy him a train ticket to Bielefeld right when the new schedule on bahn.de comes out. That will be I think on the 12th or 13th of December. And it depends on if we take the ferry or the bridge. Price-wise it would not matter too much as the bridge is cheaper but of course you need more gas as it is about 150km more to drive. On the other hand the bridge is not too expensive (54€ – at least for one person) and it is less to drive. So it is plus minus zero… Of course the bridge break would be nice, but I am also a little bit concerned about making it. You have to book times in advance and I have to find out if you are able to take an earlier ferry if you make it to the port early.
Sooo much to organize but I am loving it. I will keep you updated when it becomes more serious
