30 questions

Namaste folks!

I do love to answer questions! I do enjoy my life most of the time, so I am always happy to share! If you decide to take these questions to answer them as well, please leave me  a link so I can read them too! ♥

  1. What bill do you hate to pay the most?

I enjoy shopping and ordering useful and sometimes also useless thingies over the internet and I normally am ok to pay those kinda bills (I don’t love it – duh – but it is ok). I guess I don’t hate to pay bills in generally, it’s just something you have to do, but I am not too crazy about all the high bills, like rent, gas, water and insurance, especially since they keep increasing the amount (yeah Mr. Landlord, I am talking to you!)

 

2. When was the last time you had a romantic dinner?

Hmm.. Yesterday! Me and my boyfriend went to eat ethiopian food! We try to go to different restaurants every once in a while and to discover new types of food. I had never eaten ethiopian food before, but it was delicious! You would share a plate and eat with your hands! It was really fun 😀

3. What do you really want to be doing after answering these questions?

It is already night time, so I will answer these questions and then take a shower. I recently started to reread the Harry Potter Series, so the sixth book is waiting on my nightstand and there is nothing better to snuggle into your warm bed with a good book after you had a shower!

4. How many colleges did you attend?

I am never sure if a college is the same as a university, or if there is a difference! In Germany, we just have universities and I attend one. I am still going to the Ludwig-Maximilians University in Munich, one of the best universities in Europe.

5. Why did you choose the shirt you have on now?

Truth is – I am not waering and shirt atm xD I am wearing a comfy onesie! And I am wearing it because it is so warm and comfortable 😀

6. Thoughts on gas prices right now?

Um… no. I imagine they are too high, my father always complains about them, but I would not know, I never owned a car.


7. First thought when the alarm goes off in the morning?

Usually it is too early to think anything. There is just this instinctive grabbing my phone and turning the alarm off. Sometimes accompanied by some grunting. I am not really a morning person.

8. Last thought you have before you go to bed?

Depends. Normally something that involves the word “tired”.

9. Do you miss being a child?

Sometimes. I miss having no responsibilties. But there is a saying in Germany that says: You are only human if you grow up and remain a child. I guess and hope the child inside me will never disappear.

10. What errand/chore do you despise the most?

Lol I had to look up errand and chore xD Thanks 30 questions for teaching me some more english xD
I don’t like to clean. I am also not good at it. Lucky me my boyfriend is very good at it, so he does it most of the time.


11. Do prefer to wake up early or sleep in?

I think I alredy said so – I am NOT a morning person. I get grumpy in the morning and I insult people who wake me before I have to get up. So that is a definite YES for the sleepin in!

12. Found love yet?

Yes. Happy for 6 years. We are going to get married next year! So hyped!


13. Favorite meal to eat for lunch?

Curry. I loooooove Curry! Indian curry is best, but I also love thai curry and nepali curry! I can not get enough of this spicy delicacy ♥

 

14. What do you get every time you go grocery shopping?

A Pretzel. I love pretzels ♥

 

15. Ocean, river or lake?

All three. But I love the river that goes through our city. Every city should have a river! It is so nice to walk besides it ♥♥

16. Is marriage overrated?

I’d go with no. It is nice to commit to someone that way and I am really looking forward to this step next year!


17. Ever crashed your vehicle?

Luckily not. I am crossing fingers it will stay like this.

18. Somewhere you’ve never been, but want to go?

Tons of places! I want to go to Nazca in Peru, I want to go to Lumbini in Nepal, to India, to Bhutan, tu Thailand, to Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan! The world is big and I am tiny in comparison, but I am on the task!

19. At this point in your life, would you want to start a new career?

I have changed my career a short while ago, because I was really not happy with it. Now I am doing roman languages and I am so much happier with it. It was a great decision.

20. How many days until your next birthday?

49 days! My birthday is januar 15th and I will be turning 26. Wow. Time flies by so quickly!


21. Who is your go-to person when you need to vent?

I am not normally a venting type of person. I would rather just scream at a tree to get rid of my anger, but I guess when I feel like talking to someone I always go to my boyfriend.

22. Are you where you want to be in life?

Yes and no. I am happy with the person I am right now, I am happy with how things are going so far, but there are still so many things I want for me and my life, so many things I want to accomplish and so many places I want to see! So I guess I aspiring for more but still happy with how things are going 😀

23. Growing up, who were your favorite cartoon characters?

Sailor Moon. Loved her. Still love her!

 

24. What do you think has changed about you, since you were a teenager?

Hmm interesting question. I guess I am more mature now. At least I think I am. I moved out with 19 years and ever since I managed my own household, earning money, paying bills and studying. It was not always easy but I think my mother would say I turned out ok.

25. Looking back at high school were they the best years of your life?

Hell no. I liked going to school, but I love my life now way better.

26. When do you still feel like a kid?

When do I not feel like a kid? I laugh at funny sounding words, I find it amusing when my sister falls on her nose and I enjoy playing with Lego. I am basically a Kid xD

27. What was the make, model and year of the first car you owned?

I never owned a car :/ But I’d like a VW Golf one day 😀


28. Were you the type of kid you’d want your children to hang out with?

I was a nice kid. The wildest thing I did was to start smoking when I was about 15, but other than that – I never was drunk before I was legally allowed to (I guess the first time I was about 17?), I wouldn’t do drugs and I did not ditch school 😀 So yeah – I would my kids allow to hang out with someone like me 😀 I was fun.

29. What radio stations did you listen to when you were a teenager?

I really was never a big listener to radio. I don’t know how radio is like over at your ends of the world, but here the stations always play the same songs over and over again. I rather would listen to my own CDs and later on – playlists.


30. Who was your high school ‘crush’?

His name was Philipp and he was two years older than me. I hardly ever talked more than 3 words with him, but wow I was in love with him ^^

Let me recommend a book

Namaste folks!

It’s book recommendation time! Are you sitting on the edge of your seat, jumping up and down in excitment? No? Fair enough ^^’

Still, this month book is a really cool one:

mistergodthisisanna

This is “Mister God, this is Anna” by the british writer “Fynn”.

Anna was only four years old when Fynn found her on London’s fog-shrouded docks. He took her back to his mother’s home, and from that first moment, their times together were filled with delight and discovery. Anna had an astonishing ability to ask–and to answer–life’s largest questions. Her total openness and honesty amazed all who knew her. She seemed to understand with uncanny certainty the purpose of being, the essence of feeling, the beauty of love. You see, Anna had a very special friendship with Mister God.

My mother gave this book to me a couple of years ago, along with the words that it touched her deep inside and that she would love me to read it. I have to say, that the title did not appeal to me very much, I wouldn’t consider myself as a very religious person and the book remained untouched for quite some time. But when I actually read it I understood why my mother wanted me to read it. It’s the very beautiful story of a 4 year old and her views on the world which are very clear, simple and maybe true? It is not so much of a religious book after all, although “Mister God” plays a rather important roll in little Annas world. I’d say it’s more philosophical then religious.
This book will make you think, it will make you cry and it will make you smile. It’s great.

My favourite picture of the month December

In Germany origin the christmasmarkets, a streetmarket in the four weeks of Advent. During this time people go to the little huts and drink a hot mulled wine or other christmas treats. Munich is a pretty big city and there were over 130 christmas markets in the town and near by. My all time favourite christmas market is the Winter Tollwood. A christmasmarket that is very crafty and alternative. It’s huge and I always love to go there. This year they had a christmas tree made out of bycyles, which was really cool and it looked even more amazing then on the picture.

Wintertime in Munich. I took this picture a few metres away from my doorstep in the early morninghours of a foogy day. I loved the mood.

Last but not least – this is one bauble on our christmas tree this year. It’s sparkling and I like things that sparkle ^^

 

The Big five procrastination things…

Namaste folks!

Who doesn’t know that? You want to sit down and do some serious studying, you want to clean the bathroom or finally get on the tax returns, but there are so many other things that keep getting in your way!?

Well today I will rank my top 5 procrastination things, aka things I do when I really should be doing something else:

 

 

5. Eating

A thing I very much like to do when I really should better go and do some laundry. Some chocolate.. a sandwich… or I could bake a cake! (…don’t wait up for me, I got some eating to do).

 

 

4. Writing (letters, postcards)

I should do some studying? Homework? Essays? Look, all the pencils are already out, so I might as well write a letter and one or two… or twenty postcards!

 

 

3. Internet

The internet is an easy distracter. I should write an essay for university and facebook keeps sending me notifications. Look! I just got an email, a new swap-bot.com swap is up and oh, this animal documentary on youtube that takes just 2 hours seems interesting!

 

 

2. TV

I think everyone gets distracted by the TV once in a while. You start to see a few episodes of a series on Netflix and before you even noticed – 5 hours flew by and you still want to keep on watching.

 

 

1.Cuddling

Instead of doing anything else I love to just cuddle and eventually just to fall asleep. My boyfriend is perfect cuddle-material and when he is not around a stuffed animal does the trick as well.

The big 5 candy bars

Namaste folks!

A new section I am quite excited about! The big five! 😀 For a starter here are the big Five Candy Bars in my life! What is your favourite candy bar?

5. Mr. Tom

I used to love this in school! It is basically just peanuts glued together with some sticky sugary stuff that would make your teeth all sticky. I used to eat that a lot in school until they got rid of all the unhealthy stuff and only sold salad and stuff haha. They rarley sell these in normal storesaround where I live, but every now and then I manage to get one. Heavens!

 

snickersalmondloose

4. Snickers with Almonds

Aw so yum! Sadly, we don’thave these in Germany, or at least I never saw them around here. I had these in Chile and in Nepal and oh they are so great!.Almonds are already awesome on their own, but the combination with the chocolate and the caramel…ayayay

3. Kinder Riegel

A classic. This is the candy bar my mother always had in her cupboard. The candy bar my grandmother always got for us. I honestly think I never bought one of these myself but I loved this as a child and my grandmother still always gets these for me and my sisters when we come visit her.

2. Yogurette

I seriously love these! They are gold during PMS.seriously! Inside, there is some yogurth stuff and little pieces of strawberries, all covered in chocolate. Soo good!  They are a little lighter than normal candy bars, so you can easily eat about 3-4 without getting a serious stomach ache ^^’

 

balisto-korn-mix

1. Balisto (orange)

My number 1. Without any doubt. I LOVE these! There are many different types with milk and fruits, but I like this plain version with oats best. I can pretend it to be healthy and it is yummy! What else can you wish for in a candy bar? Sooo good xD
