Flashback | week 4.

As I already wrote lately, the semester is over, so it's time for party, friends, but unfortunately also time for farewells and stuff. This really sucks, but it's part of life and we can be sure, to see each other sometime and somewhere again. This makes it kind of easier, even though it is everytime a tough task to do. But it's worth it.

So the last week was full of friend's visits, party, getting to know new and gorgeous people and farewells. To become a little bit clearer: first I had Jules and Anita around, two girls from my gymnastic's sports group. It was very funny to have them around and to see them outside of a sport hall. Here you can see, what a great time we spent together.

These days Babsi left Madrid as well for Austria before heading over to Brazil. So we had a great breakfast with Cola-Cao and a delicous Napolitana con crema. Besides the wonderful breakfast, it felt good to say goodbye in person knowing that we will see each other very soon. The other austrian girls unfortunately left Madrid as well without a possibility to see each other beforehands. But... Austria is not that far away, is it? So... see you soon!


Me and Babsi.

The next visitor on my "agenda" was Sebi from Munich. We also spend a couple of nice days and I got to know some of his friends who turned out to be very funny and nice. It's always great to get to know new people. Talking about that, I also have to mention another friend of mine: David. Thanks to him, I was able to be at a spanish movie production, which was interesting and very cool to see. Thanks therefore as well!! Pics of these days can be seen here.

And finally, another farewell took place. The italian girls Enrica and Marisa left Madrid as well this weekend. The party was very funny and it was kind of sad in two ways: not only that we had to say goodbye, but also recognizing that we didn't spend that much time together here in Madrid, was a sad experience. But staying in touch and fixing a meeting in the future also helps here. :-)

Enrica, me and Marisa.

What else can be told? Don't know. Maybe that I do not want to leave Madrid?

End of this Semester.

Just in the moment, when I was handing in my last exam of this semester on Thursday I suddenly recognized, that it was not only the last exam of this semester but the last one forever. Just imagine... Woof!

As you surely can imagine as well, this was enough reason to have a party. But unfortunately it was not the only reason to see all the erasmus and my other spanish friends: it was also Wiebke's farewell from Madrid, as she left Madrid yesterday morning. But nevertheless - as the pictures might show - we all enjoyed a nice evening and it was pure fun.

Iñigo, Wiebke and I.

Yesterday, another friend from Munich was around and we spent a nice day walking around, EATING and having party until the early morning hours.

Unfortunately this was the reason, why I totally overslept this morning... Actually I wanted to be at the airport at 11.30 am to pick up two friends again. But when they called me at 12 am, I was still in bed, sleeping. Abandonning this, we spend another nice day walking thorugh Madrid. As well I had my first dinner in a Hard Rock Café. What a delicious well-done medium burger.

Now, I have to get prepared for the tonight's party. I have to sleep.

Two weeks without constant access to the WWW.

As you can already read in the headline, I was without constant connection to the internet for the last two weeks. Everyone that knows me and I think, even the ones that don't, can more or less guess, how hard this time was. Take a minute to think about it.

[Minute]

Got it? Now double it. And then square it. Then you might have a slight idea of how it felt for me every single minute. As an additional information: it was exam's time. This even doubled it again. But okay. I made up some new insights and I even got evidence on old ones.
  • It seems to be hard to pick up dog's shit from the street, when it's to thin.
  • Life without internet sucks.
  • Stupid learning is stupid.
  • "How I met you mother" is great and saves lifes.
  • Not having enough time to enjoy life is aweful.
  • Dreaming of cats who immediately jump on your throat can cause you the night.
  • Did I mention, that life without internet is totally crap?
  • Music is great. ¡Viva el Pop!
  • Facing the last time of an ending chapter doesn't feel good - assumed, it was a good chapter.
  • People can be weird. And strange.
  • Five cm of Snow is a serious problem in Spain.
  • It can be fun, when girls scream from the top of a building, that they like your style while you are passing by.
I think, these were not the only insights I got throughout the last two weeks. But... I want to keep it short for the moment.
