Oh, hiya! Just that you know, I’m still alive! Well, sort of. I’m dead tired these days and I can’t believe the first
half two thirds of May are already over. Anyway, I think it’s time I told you what’s going on in my life right now so you won’t worry about my absence (you probably haven’t noticed it, as little as I blog in general).
I’ve been incredibly busy: I moved to Würzburg, which is a beautiful city with some gorgeous places I haven’t been able to (re)visit yet. The pivotal reason is my internship, which also happens to be the reason I’m always tired, ergo, why I haven’t been around Würzburg yet. After having so much free time over the last semester, it’s really hard to get used to an 8h day at work. But I’m adjusting. So far, I have good days and bad days, meaning days I enjoy life in the PR department of a publishing company and days I wish the whole thing would be over already. I just have to get used to the workload, the tasks, and the team and then hopefully, everything will be fine. Fortunately, everyone’s incredibly nice so that’s awesome and really helps. I’m basically asking every couple of minutes where I can find whatever I’m looking for or how something is handled and yadda yadda yadda. Still, it’s great to look behind the curtain and I so hope that at the end of my four months, I will be able to pick up the telephone without panicking. I so hate to do phone calls. There’s just one thing that really buggs me: they really shouldn’t have told me about the employee discounts! There’s no way I’ll be able to restrain myself. The reading(hamster)rat will strike again! So be prepared for some overly long newbie posts. Fortunately, you should be used to my excessive book buying behaviour by now.
The other reason I haven’t been writing posts these days is that I’m currently out of camera. I just wasn’t able to bring it with me because my bags were always stuffed with clothes and food and books. You have no idea how much I miss my new baby. I just refuse to take pictures with my mobile knowing that I have this high tech HD wonder lying abandoned in my room at home. I just can’t settle for low quality images when I could have divine pictures. I even took all the ones for my wrap-up post but of course I also forgot to take the SD card with me. However, I’ll probably drive home over the weekend so I will be able to start blogging again. [At the time of finishing this post, it’s right next to me, so be prepared! I’ll be back … or something …]
So, yeah, that’s basically it. I’m going to write my wrap-up and newbie posts for April soon and I’ll try to get through my feed reader (guys, you just write too much!). And if everything works out, the lovely Shiku is going to visit me over the weekend, which will be totally awesome.
