I am bushed, too many things swirl in my mind. I came to the office, in need for a coffee and I wasn#t even properly sitting on my chair and had to discuss statistics with my colleague. I am glad for a home office day tomorrow. Glad for following my own pace and need hierarchy. For now all I can do is sort my thought by thinking out loud!
1. Pumpkin Love
On my way to work is this pumpkin stall where you can pick out a pumpkin or 10 and pay by putting the costs in a little can. If they make a win or a loss is all up to the honesty of the people as there’s nobody there to monitor the pumpkins. I love those stalls.Yesterday I spend there 15 minutes picking the best little Hokkaidos I could find! Now I have loads and loads to stuff 🙂 Or maybe I make some Pumpkin Lasagne?
I totally forgot about Halloween this year. I mean I am invited to a party and I made sure I have something to wear but I havent “wasted” a single thought on Halloween Sweets and Treats. Yesterday I was asked to contribute some food to the said party and I said yes of course. But honestly, what should I make? I think I have some research to make! Unfortunately I haven’t written down the recipe of those monster pumpkin muffins 🙁
3. Halloween Movies
Though I was totally oblivious to the fact that October comes to an end this week I am now even more excited about this weekend’s TV program. Surely they will have all those glorious kids Halloween movies on repeat. Halloweentown is surely one of my favorites.
And then Hocus Pocus – who can deny that classical from the 90s? My weekend plans are set 🙂
4. Breakfast News
I am still obsessed with the tit bakes. I can’t get over it and I also don’t see a reason to get over it. Nevertheless sometimes you need to mix things up a little. Lately I add half of a teaspoon of Davida’s pumpkin spice and then top it with some applesauce and hazelnut butter and give a few hazelnuts on top. It’s so so delicious and just tastes like fall! Heaven!
5. Going to Vienna?
Whilst training for my first half I was sure this was to be my first and last half. But after actually running the race I was a little keener. At the moment I am really considering to register for the Vienna Half Marathon next spring. I am not so much into running at the moment but I feel like I should start hitting the pavement again! But running a half would mean some serious training and I am not sure I can motivate myself to go running 18k for training on Sunday morning with a biting -5°C. But if I register now I won’t back out…. but then I really had to start to train seriously as I would hate myself for not running a PR!
6. Serious Business
I really try to take my job not so serious. Whenever I talk about a stressful situation as an emergency or big problem I secretly consider to put them into quotation marks. No job can b so serious when you don’t work in a medical job or maybe a nuke where actually lifes are at risk. I have a relaxed attitude about things that have to happen immediately!!! And I try to make myself a priority even at work. But as hard as I try to and as much as I know that it’s normal and everyone faces those kinds of situations I fell in the trap! Yesterday I had a little panic attack about my thesis. Well maybe that’s my kind of Halloween Panick! Maybe I should dress as an unfinished thesis or a shattered goal! Oh no I feel the panic coming up again…. Focus! Well yesterday, when I realized how little I have achieved (not true) so far and how much (sadly true) is still to be done until I have to hand in my thesis is only 1,5 years I panicked! What did I do? I left my workplace and went to a workout. Carrying heavy weights and pushing them in the air makes me feel more capable. So the panic became more dull. Today I feel better. I need to remind me that I strive for not so serious business and well-being instead of being “super important” and sick 😛
7. Love note
Just a random little thing: Last week I wanted to send “I love you” to Stefan by What’s App. I typed in “I love” and my phone suggested 3 words to continue. Can you guess them? I couldn’t!!!
How odd! Then I repeated it again today and it suggested:
What the fuck?????
What does your mobile suggest when you type in : “I love”
Okay lovelies, enough randomness for today. I need to form a set of hypothesise or otherwise the world will implode, did ya know?
Have a great Thursday!
