Oh people, this week goes so different from what I have planned. I was off sick two days and now I am on the mend. Two days of lying flat always leaves me in a state of inner terror. I have bumblebees in my ass and I feel like a child that wants to run around a coffee table screeming.
Luckily I am back to a scheduled life and I can finally start to get my shit together again. Luckily my wonderful colleague had covered for me and even worked late one evening to host one of my workshops.
I am gathering my thought a bit now in good old thinking out loud style. Thanks Amanda it’s a pleasure as always!
A note on important people and friendship… this is my ultmate #friendshipgoals
I had a more serious post planned for today but even though I had mapped out everything in advance (something I almost never do!) I couldn’t scrape together enough brain to form coherent sentences so I postponed my post for next week. It’s too important to me to risk not being able to explain myself the way I want.
On a brief note about writing. I have watched a few youtube tutorials the past two days when I stumbled upon a few videos on writing content for your blog that somehow rubbed me the wrong way. It also made me think a lot about how I write and that might be something I will discuss in another post. Just to touch on this subject. I am a fan of winging it. Especially on Thursdays I let my stream of consciousness flood my posts.
Why oh why is youtube such a horrible, glorious, time sucking, brain consuming plattform? I am so badly obsessed. I haven’t watched TV for three days now. Only in the kitchen. I have a small DVD player in the kitchen.
Talking of DVDs. I tend to watch shows and movies that match my emotional climate. At the moment I watch Dexter. Whatever that means is to be figured out by my non-existent shrink! Aka the half of me that wonders if I should get a real shrink.
I get so easily bored when I am sick. Because of a youtube video I was watching I got reminded of an unfinished project I started over 4 years ago when I was doomed to live on the couch for over three months. I started crocheting – yes it is every bit as lame as it sounds. And *drum roll* finished it!!!! My crocheting sucks and I am sure my 8 year old niece would have outdone me by far at sewing it together but I don’t care because it’s done. The OCD in me hates me for the pattern I chose and my crocheting skills but loves me for finishing it in the end. I guess we can call it even!
Food Photography is a big source of frustration to me lately. I try to get better at it but I feel like the more I try the less I like my pictures. Bah, even writing this down raises my frustration levels!
It’s my birthday in less than two weeks and I have decided to get myself a few presents. I still waver if I should wrap them for the sake of the joke. Or maybe order them as a prewrapped gift. Oh the excitement 😛 My birthday is on a Tuesday this year and Stefan has to work so I thought I might spend the day with myself. Stefan thinks it’s a bit sad to be on my own but I actually think I’d rather enjoy it.
I really really really want this for my birthday!
I am majorly pissed off because they closed my favorite bookstore in Munich. Imagine Waterstones at Picadilly in London or Barnes & Noble at Union Square in NYC. This means that also one of my favorite coffee shops is gone.
Have I mentioned already that we booked a room in a beach house in San Diego this summer? 4 days living at the beach! I need to curb my excitement or I will have a hell of 5 1/2 months ahead of me. I start on Monday. Seriously!
And also seriously I have to start work now and need to catch up with all the shit of the past two days. Enjoy the day before Friday friends and see you soon!
Does being sick make you feel all over the place too?
