October Wrap Up

October was quite a good month for me, well at least, it started awesome, but had a little bit of a disappointing ending.

As I have already written here, I have been to the Harry Potter exhibition on the 4th of October. This was definitely the highlight of the month, and probably also of the year :D

I have also won many books on lovelybooks to read and review. I felt quite flattered to be chosen for 4 books on lovelybooks. However, I almost had no time to read it until now, because the new semester had started and I was busy getting new books for my courses. But I have now started a Japanese language course at university, and I am sooo excited. Japanese always belonged to the languages I have always wanted to learn. Now, it is finally time to do it.

Furthermore, we went to a Live Escape Room. It is a room in which you will be locked up for 60 minutes together with up to 4 friends. You will have to solve some puzzles within that given time. There are cameras in the room and the instructor will also be giving you hints if you are stuck on one puzzle. My sister Didi, my friend Giuli and I did that 3 weeks ago, and it was so much fun!

A week after that, I was spontaneously invited to the birthday party of Yong Il, a friend of mine from South Korea. I had a great time with her and some other friends of mine :)

The next day I helped to organize a party at university. The party was from our faculty, and I have to admit that it is quite hard to organize parties. It is a lot of stress and then you have to work in a team together with others, and that can sometimes be quite annoying. But the first hour of the party was fine because I had fun with some friends :)

I also got a new phone that week. Well, actually, it is the old phone of my brother because he got himself a new phone now, a Samsung Note 4, and I got his old Samsung Note 3 which is definitely not old yet :’D

At that same week we went shopping at the mall. I found a new leather jacket, finally, and a new beautiful pullover.

(Don’t get distracted by the blanket :’D) Leather Jacket: 39,99€ from Mango Pullover: 18€ from Promod

Furthermore, I enjoyed the nice colours of autumn.

Last week, there was a university party from my friend Giuli’s. We went there, already a bit drunk. But we got in for free and we even got V.I.P. wristbands :’D We got all our drinks for free. At first, everything was okay, but after an unvoluntarily Ouzo shot I felt quite sick. Well, at the end of the party, we were almost the only ones left there. A friend of my friend Giuli’s was quite drunk. While waiting for the tram outside, he threw Giuli and another friend to the floor and blew into their nose. I was torn between being shocked and amused :’D Then he really managed to throw me to the floor of the tram, to blow into my nose. Right in front of other people who looked quite annoyed of some drunk youths :’D But I was like: WHAT IS THIS?! HE IS BLOWING INTO MY NOSE! WTF!?!?!!? It was quite disgusting. For an instance I thought I was going to suffocate, and then I got this smell of spittle in my nose :’D I think that was the most disgusting thing someone has done to me (except when my cousin stuck a key into my asshole as a child :’D That was quite disturbing xD)

This week, our cousins from Heidelberg came to visit us. They also have two children, a little boy (2 years old) and a girl (4 years old). I spent a lot of time with the little girl. I gave her some of my manga I don’t read anymore and she immediately started reading :’D She is such a sweetheart <3

On Friday, we visited the new mall in Stuttgart. It was amazing. Very big, but in my opinion it was clearly arranged. It is impossible to get lost in it, although many have that feeling. I want to go there again next week, because I didn’t have any money left this week, so I could only buy some cute socks from Bershka :’D But I have already seen some cute pullovers at Pull and Bear and also some beautiful black skirts.

Well, so much to the activity part of the month of October.

When it comes to books, I could have read more. I have finished 4 books though:

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban – Joanne K. Rowling

Shopaholic to the Stars – Sophie Kinsella

– Punch and Judy: A Short History with the Original Dialogue – John Payne Collier

The Iron Trial – Cassandra Clare and Holly Black

Plus, I have started following books, but couldn’t finish them last month:

– The Shadow of the Wind – Carlos Ruiz Zafon

– Bon retablissement – Marie Sabine Roger

Rivers of London – Ben Aaronovitch

I have also bought/got many books:

Shopaholic to the Stars – Sophie Kinsella

The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy – Rachel Joyce

Vier Welten – Anika Fischer

Einmal rundherum – Astrid Schlupp-Melchinger

The Iron Trial – Cassandra Clare and Holly Black

Destined and Dragon’s Oath – P.C. Cast

Star Wars, Episode I: The Phantom Menace – Terry Brooks

Maus I: A Survivor’s Tale: My Father Bleeds History – Art Spiegelman

Paper Towns – John Green

– Eat, Pray, Love – Elizabeth Gilbert

About a Boy – Nick Hornby

The Restaurant at the End of the Universe – Douglas Adams

Yes, these are a lot of books, but I got most of those from the library sale. And the other part I won on lovelybooks.de

This was all from October :) In November, I will attend the most-anticipated Jack White concert *o* Stay Tuned!

Thanks for reading :)
