I am a happy girl as it’s Thursday and we have a bank holiday in Germany. Thanks to Amanda Thursdays are for Thinking out Loud and exactly that I am going to do now! If you want to learn more about the idea behind the link-up just click here
1. Photography Class
Today I seize the opportunity of that day off and tackle one of my spring want-do’s. I enrolled in that one-day class my mum-in-law gave me for my birthday. So today is the day I finally learn how to handle more than the automatic mode at my camara. I am already looking forward to knowing my camera better but I was too lazy to read through the manual. The class is given in small groups of maximum 6 people and we are supposed to try all the adjustments by ourselves. I am already curious what I will learn
2. Cross Fit
My very academic breeding makes me research and read all about the things I consider doing or I am interested in. Whatever it is I always read all about it first. So at the moment I am reading all about Cross Fit. In that process I remembered a fun youtube clip I first saw on Chelsea‘s blog a couple of month ago. I need to share this cross fit funny with you today. Hilarious!
3. Working at Starbucks
Yesterday my PhD colloquium started again after spring break and I took the opportunity to get some work done at Starbucks in the afternoon. It was so good just to sit there and work concentrated on my strategy for the next 8 weeks when I have to present my research findings. Starbucks just has such a stimulating work environment. And best about it: The return of the Iced Soy Latte. Finally it is warm enough to indulge in that goodie without shivering 😉
4. Movie Love
As you know I am not a big movie fan. I usually enjoy TV series much more than movies but this one is just a piece of gold. I haven’t been emotionally affected by any movie for ages but The Secret Life of Walter Mitty just touched me. In a nutshell the plot is about a man who lives a stable but boring and somehow lonely life he tries to enlighten by constant daydreaming. Then something happens and he is forced to take a risk for the first time in his life. And as soon as he dared something his life turns for the better. The mood the movie introduces, the nature, music, the characters and message – everything is just beautiful. And even my husband liked it! We’ve watched it twice in the cinema and I pre-ordered it on DVD. And as the DVD arrived yesterday I instantly watched it again. I really really warmly recommend that movie to you! You won’t regret it. Promise!
5. Hairy decisions
Okay now it’s getting serious! I need to make an appointment at the hair dresser’s and I am convinced to go for a layered yet long hair cut. But I am still undecided when it comes to the essential question: bangs or no bangs? Any recommendations???? I am so 50:50!
Now I need to dash! Wish you a very happy Thursday And don’t forget to check out more witty randomness over there.
