I can’t tell how stressed this month is going to be. There is a lot to do, though I have already done some of the things for this week now and I am so relieved already :D

I have 2 written exams, 2 oral exams, and 2 mini essays to hand, and everything has to be done before the 25th of July, because I am flying to Turkey on that day, namely for 4 weeks :’D

And here is my to-do list for the following weeks:

– Studying more and writing the Chinese exam tomorrow
– Beginning and Finishing “City and the River” by Arun Joshi, until this Thursday
– Beginning with my mini Essay for Translation II this weekend
– Preparing my presentation for my chinese oral exam this weekend

Last Day of Christmas Break

Today is the last day of the two and a half weeks of Christmas vacation. I wanted to do some stuff for university in these about 20 days. I have finished or at least began some of them more or less, but I still have to do a lot of things :/ 

  • Read “Lolita”
  • Write an essay about “Pride and Prejudice”
  • Read “I have blinded myself writing this”…
  • … and write a response to it
  • Write at least two more writing tasks for my Written Communication Class
  • Write a response about my own workshop
  • Write a response to my Oral Comm 2 speech
  • Buy and Read “More information than you require”…
  • … and prepare the presentation about it.
  • Prepare the paperwork for my Erasmus year in England

We had guests last weekend just before New Year’s Eve, sonI couldn’t do anything those 2 days. And on the day of NYE we had to prepare a lot, as well as the day after.

I have also looked for some jobs in the meantime just yesterday, but have to apply still. The problem is with the paper stuff like my grades from my A’levels. I somehow can’t upload them with my tablet… really strange. I will have to try with my sister’s laptop later. And I definitely have to buy a new laptop soon. Only with this tablet, it is a pain in the ass :/ 

So much to do, so less time… Now, I will start with the two stories I have to give in for my written communication course. 

To-Do-List for the Winter Break

I only have 2 weeks ahead of me, and then winter break will begin. On the 20th of December, 4 days before Christmas. And university will become more stressful then. I still have to read, write, and prepare a lot. The break is only for 14 days when I guess right, but I will have one presentation, and two writing tasks after that. I also have to read 3 books. So here is my full To-Do-List:

  • Read “Lolita”
  • Write an essay about “Pride and Prejudice”
  • Read “I have blinded myself writing this”…
  • … and write a response to it
  • Write at least two more writing tasks for my Written Communication Class
  • Write a response about my own workshop
  • Write a response to my Oral Comm 2 speech
  • Buy and Read “More information than you require”…
  • … and prepare the presentation about it.
  • Prepare the paperwork for my Erasmus year in England

Omg… Will I really be able to manage all of that?!?! I hope at least. Cross your fingers for me :)

Thanks for reading!

September has started

Yesterday, after work, I went to my university’s library to give back a few of my books I used for my term papers. I also met my friend who returned from her one-week-trip to Istanbul. We went to a chinese restaurant after that and wanted to sit there, but they were already full. So we took the food to-go. I only took some vegetable rolls, because I wasn’t so hungry. Then we sat in the park and ate and talked. One annoying thing: The wasps always flew around us, the WHOLE  time! And this isn’t the first time this summer. A few weeks ago, when we went punting, the wasps also stalked us while we wanted to eat our ice cream. They honestly followed us all the way from the ice cream parlour to the park. And in the park they didn’t let us be. That was really annoying. I always feared to swallow one, because they were flying around our mouths all the time. I quite of hate wasps, they are ugly animals. They stung my dad yesterday, and his leg still hurts. But bees and humblebees I like, they are so cute! Unfortunately they never seem to appear near of us -.-

However, after I discovered an ugly, brown, wobbly something on my bag, that looked like pudding made of shit, I nearly had to vomit. Then we stood up right away and left for the city. We went to H&M and walked around the streets until we stopped in front of a crepes-spot. We bought some and went to stip on the steps in fron of the church. There we ate, observed the people and talked. It was a really nice day, with hot weather.

And my friend also gave me something she brought for me from Istanbul.

An oriental bookmark and a bag of turkish delight. Of course, I know and love turkish delight and we also buy it every time we go to Turkey on vacation. But I have never eaten pink delights! They were so yummy and tasted like strawberries. But I really was pleased about the bookmark, because I always wanted a decent bookmark :) and this one just looks so beautiful, don’t you also think so?

Now, tomorrow, I will give back the rest of my books. I have happily finished all of my papers, like mentioned before (and all the time), I have informed myself about the parties to chose, and I have transfered the money to amazon that they couldn’t take off my account. Now there are still a few things to do until sunday:

So then, my spontaneous to-do-list:

  • go to the coiffeur
  • load money to my cellphone
  • buy the hair product from Lush
  • create a packing List (a list in a list :’D)

Yes, that’s for now I guess. But I will still post a lot of things until sunday and before I leave :) Until then, see you guys, and thanks for reading ;)
