Happy Halloweeeeeeeeeen



I'm excited, are you?!
Have a fantastic night, and a fantastic Monday!!!
All Saint's Day will be celebrated here by having everything shut, just like on any other regular Sunday.
Yay!
*can you feel my sarcasm?*

Happy Friday Everyone!


Although there's this huge debate going on in this area about whether or not Halloween's an appropriate holiday over here, and how the Vatican wants to ban it in Italy and other places...it is a holiday I love and miss and cannot wait to celebrate. Hopefully next year, even more! :) But this year...all I can do, as most years before that, is watch endless hours of horror movies (my favorite time ever!), eat some candy, and wear my socks  ;)

Today is also Fill in the Blank Friday again...hosted by the lovely and adorable Lauren. Play along if you wish.

1.   My Halloween plans this year will include    staying home, wearing my Halloween socks, watching endless hours of horror movie, eating candy and pretty much relaxing. Not exactly super exciting but it's not celebrated here so I don't expect to do much :(

2.  My most memorable Halloween costume was  ten years ago, when I went as my friend. Sounds silly and boring to you, but it's not. My friend had spooky hair and all kinds of crazy stuff going on about her wardrobe and I was her, and she was me (plain and boring!)...walking through SF that day was awesome!!! So yeah, it's not just what I wore that day because it wasn't anything special but the memory makes it special!!! Forever.

3.  For Halloween this year I'm going to be   just me. So technically I'm going to be nothing.

4.  I've always wanted to dress up as    Scarlett O'Hara. Enough said!

5.  Halloween free association!    horror movies, spooky music, pumpkins, apples, candy and colors

6.  The worst thing about Halloween is  that I'm usually not around for it, but I'm determined to change that. :)

7.  The best thing about Halloween is    dressing up on the actual day, and visiting haunted houses before the actual day or on that day (either way it's awesome!)...so sad we don't have them over here.

Hope you're having a fabulous Friday.
Mine started with an incident I don't want to happen ever again. It hurt like crazy. Damn I was mad.
A drawer in the kitchen fell out (don't ask how that could happen) and of course landed on my toes. Just fabulous. I cried, I yelled, I cursed, I laughed...at least I thought it was okay to laugh...nothing is broken though, just bruised and swollen. I can still walk but it hurts. And yes of course it happened before I even got my first sip of coffee. Not a good start into this day. Luckily, it's all better now. Limping, I went out, and returned a few minutes ago...all good...with bags so officially my souvenir shopping is done, too. Now all I have to do is wrap everything up and I'm done. Wow. I hate wrapping though so this may take a while. :(


Happy Friday everyone!!

Let's Get Clean

So, bathrooms are my second favorites when it comes to rooms in the house, or my very favorite when I enter a hotel room. I like big wide spaces that allow me to walk through not hitting myself on my way to the bathtub or shower. I like those I can dance in, or at least twirl around...just big enough so I don't feel trapped. Lots of light is important, if possible lots of real light because when putting make-up on, fake light coming from expensive light bulbs isn't helping....outside it all looks so shockingly awful. So, here's a few bathrooms I came across I felt like sharing with you all.
My favorite kind? The last two ones...without the Christmas tree of course!
I love Christmas, but sorry, I don't want a freakin' tree in my bathroom...that's way toooooooo much.


Apparently pink in the bathroom is absolutely cool! Hmmm...


Love the screens in here...


And yes, I wouldn't mind having a fireplace in my bathroom...very cozy...yes.


The following one is a very nice one...very bright...very clean-looking, too.





Well, not sure if this goes as a bathroom because to me it looks like a spa area...but having a pool-like tub is something I wouldn't mind having either...with a view like that of course!!!



Lots of space! Just not enough light!


And here we go...the Christmas tree bathroom...


...and the one I'd love to have mainly because it's so bright in there!!!

all pics via google images

I can't believe I put so many bathroom on this post.
Can you see how obsessed I am?! I need serious help.

On another note...it's just plain gorgeous outside. That's what I call fall.
Lots of sunshine, blue sky, dry streets (I hate when it rains during fall), and cold temps. I wish it was a tiny bit warmer so I wouldn't have to wear my fall/winter jacket with gloves, but it's okay. Fall to me is the season I could wear my hoodies only, and maybe a scarf...but still be able to wear flats or girlie shoes. ;) Hmmm...this reminds me now...I should fight this cold weather and just go for the girlie look. Maybe it'll help and temperatures go up faster!!!

Have a fab day.

Controversial and Sorry

Tuesday, all sunny and I'm literally stuck at home. Then again I feel like the laziest person ever...I should definitely work on this and get my butt moving!!! I blame it on my forgetting to set the alarm and waking up at 11! Whoopsy!!

And I just found this picture...I just love fall...when it looks like this!!! 

On another note:

Controversial topics are my favorites.
There, I said it. Ok, I wrote it.
Why?
It makes a conversation less boring and keeps it going...practically, there's no end to any controversial issue. Love it. So much fun. SO much pain, too. ;)

Reason why I'm quickly mentioning this is just one thing...in my city, there's this three-day thing going where people hand out condoms. Yes, you read right. To top it all, the guy that is in charge of this and also hands out those condoms is someone representing the Catholic church, and we all know (and if not now you do) the Catholic church is against condoms. That's the simple and easy way to say this. Whether or not you agree, or whether or not I agree (again, not going into topics like this because my blog's more about random stuff than political, religious and what not stuff) I think this is funny. People wrote posts and articles about this, called the the police, called the church, called whoever may help them get rid of this guy and his people. What amazes and amuses me is that the guy handing out condoms is representing the church. So, get over it! And, main reason he is doing this is... safe sex, and mainly Aids. So my question to this now is?! Who's at fault here? Is he doing a right thing or a wrong thing?!
My opinion? He's absolutely right to do this. He doesn't do it to upset anyone, he does it to make people, especially young teenagers and also adults, remember and aware of that this is an issue we should never forget and ignore. It's also something we should talk about, freely. We shouldn't be ashamed of it either. People easily forget. People easily ignore. And this topic is important. Very important. It takes just one person to forget and ignore and then have thousands infected. It takes one to laugh at it and have hundreds infected. Just one. And one is one too many. 

Having grown up in a so-called free world of belief (long very twisted story, and so very my family and environment) I believe that people shouldn't point their fingers and stick to what the church says because the church is not always right. To add some spice to it...haha...usually, the church is wrong. Especially this one. I'm disgusted at times. But that's another story I won't get into (and unfortunately or maybe fortunately I officially grew up Catholic!). I should but will keep my mouth shut. For now that is. Those that do believe in whatever the church tells us to do and all...so be it, but think twice before you call the police on a guy that simply hands out condoms to young people to make sure they use it and remember that just one mistake can lead them and others to an illness we are all aware of but tend to ignore. Or, does the church say "go out, have sex, get sick, and spread it so we all die soon!!??" Sorry, but I had to say it!

Ok, I'm feeling better now!

Sorry if this was a post that upset you or made you angry.
Don't hate me for what I wrote. Please don't.
It's me and my thoughts. And well, I needed to write it out.
Again, I quote myself over and over again, but writing does help and in this case it did its job quite well. 

On a much happier note...I'm practically done with Christmas shopping, am wrapping up gifts, and will have them sent out by mid November I think. Not earlier otherwise it may just be a Thanksgiving gift rather than  a Christmas gift. And well, today for the first time in weeks I felt okay with who I am. Sounds good, huh? I'm okay with the fact that my life's a total disaster right now. :) But I'm also determined to fix this and that soon!!! In one month things may already be changing for me. Wow!!!

Have a fantastic day.

I promise a cute post some time soon... after all, my favorite day will be this Sunday!!! :)

This is Me

 via
Of course it's not! I wish though.
However, my profile picture on some network thingy on this world wide web has this shown as me. And I love it. I think every year I choose something else to remind people how much I adore this time of year. Not just Halloween but the fact that pumpkins are around. They're cute! Ok, at least I think so. :) 
Anyways, I'm digressing here...didn't mean to.

As my crazy random post earlier today said I'm going nuts.
I was able to relax though...at my dental lady's today for like 30 minutes, and at home (after I got soaking wet thanks to the rain - and yes I did have an umbrella) watching 500 Days of Summer. :) Love the movie, and it brings back good memories. :) And apparently I can't stop using smiley faces on this post...so I better stop now. :) :) See?!

Off I go...have a fab rest of the day, wherever you are.
I'm gonna light up my pumpkins and candles. Woohoo.

Crazy Monday Randomness

When you have free time on your hands and not so much to do with it your mind goes crazy. In a good way, that is. Your mind wanders and lets you remember things, lets you look at things differently, lets you dream and lets you hope. It shows you ideas, helps you imagine and it just goes round and round...with so much time and so much heavy work going on up there it's no wonder I'm feeling dizzy. So, here's what I liked about last week and what I'm looking forward to this week. In no particular order that is. ;)

♥  sunshine (finally!)
♥  lunch/dessert time with my friend before her departure (see you soon again N!!)
♥ Criminal Minds
♥  Halloween!!
♥  Quotes

I told you once I'm trying real hard to find happiness and tranquility.
It's not easy but it's what keeps me going. Every day I find something new that either makes me laugh, smile, or just enjoy life. This can vary from a quote or a colorful leaf to a movie or a weird comment on my facebook page. :) Apparently I need to wear big, pink fuzzy slippers to the grocery store!

So today I'm literally sharing random things with you.
Ready?! Yes? Good. ;)

A family is a place where minds come in contact with one another. If these minds love one another, the home will be as beautiful as a flower garden. But if these minds get out of harmony with one another it is like a storm that plays havoc with the garden.
the Buddha 

I love the above picture. It has fall written all over. At least I think so.

And another quote:

I'm thankful for my years spent with this family; for everything we shared, every chance we had to grow. I'll take the best of them and lead by their example; wherever I go. A friend told me to be honest with you, so here it goes. This isn't what I want, but I'll take the high road. maybe it's because I look at everything as a lesson, or I don't want to walk around angry. Or maybe it's because I finally understand. There are things we don't want to happen, but have to accept; things we don't want to know, but have to learn, and people we can't live without, but have to let go.
A.J. Cook

And since Halloween is pretty much around the corner and I miss it (if I ever get to have my own house, I will go crazy decorating!!)...here's some things I found and love. I told ya, very random.

all via tumblr

Oh yes, my mind goes crazy. Besides the above mentioned and all the cute little tumblr pictures I'm also constantly thinking about whether or not I should visit Louisiana or not, and if so, what kind of suitcase I should travel with and when so how I'm going to do all of this. Lots of thinking, lots of weird things, lots of ridiculous randomness it drives me nuts. I keep myself balanced with some of my favorite shows, nailpolish I need to use and can work with, Christmas presents (yes, I just need three more and I'm done!), laundry, and movies that keep me distracted, entertained and amused. :) It's not a lot, and it's not getting me anywhere but it's something. It's better than staying in bed with boredom. It's better than crying, and it's better than working where I used to work. Trust me on this, I am well aware that I need to work on my life and need to find a job and all that but you can also be very sure that I'm well aware of the fact that I'm better off without the job I had. Sometimes it takes longer to accept this, and it takes sometimes months or years to realize this but the time has come and I am grateful for that specific moment. It was some time this June where I was literally told I'm not good enough, practically stupid. I know I'm not, because honestly (and quite sadly) I was the only one in that work place with a college degree. This already told me that I'm not stupid, but I may just be different and not fit for this area or that work. I realized I needed something new, and needed something better. It's those moments that show the true face of life, and the true face of love. So, can you see where I'm going with this? No? Neither can I.
I'm telling you, it's been an awful week. Lots of ups and downs. More downs than ups and at times I just thought I'd lose it all together. Of course I didn't and I'm thankful for that. I was and slightly am a huge mess. However, I was able to book a flight to L.A., and look forward to time away and time in a place I miss and love. It's what counts, right? It's what should count no matter what. So, my crazy mind goes round and round and so far it doesn't seem to stop. Maybe better so. Let's hope it has something in store for me, something that will help me reach my happy goal, so I can spice this site up with more happier posts. Ok?! Okay!!!

With that said, I'm hoping you all had a fabulous weekend.
And let's hope you're all going to have an even better week...I know I will...starting with a visit to the dental lady. Yes. How fantastic for a Monday!! Just what I needed. 

The crazy little writer...

October is slowly ending...

...and that means Halloween's approaching like crazy. I wish we had pumpkin patches over here, and more fall like weather so I would actually enjoy this time of year. But, I'm stuck at home today with my left foot up in the air and in pain. Not sure what happened, but it's what happens when temperatures drastically change and when I walk too much or too little or both or none of that. I remember in March I had the same problem, and now again in October. So I'm in pain, and can't walk. Just fantastic. Besides that, I'm in a funk and don't seem to get out of it today. So it's better I'm staying home and finding peace within than ruining everyone else's day. I wanted to go to Zurich (about 50 minutes north of here) to watch people freeze for a few minutes...today, around 3pm there's this freezemob thing going on in most major cities and I wanted to see it. However, it's good that I'm feeling so blaaaaahhhh today, so I'm staying home. I'm sure I'd ruin it for everyone if I went. :(

Tomorrow though I'm going to meet a friend for the last time. She's flying back home to Thailand on Tuesday after about six months in Europe. I'll miss our funny conversations, but will enjoy our dessert/coffee time tomorrow! Eating sweets is the best thing to end a weekend! :) And to say our good-bye's.

And for this rather gloomy October weekend...here's what I love about fall, and wish I would see more often!




all pics via tumblr

The last picture is pretty much how I'm feeling...sort of. ;)
I think I posted the same last year, not sure now, but I just love this one. Kinda cute! ;)

Hope you are having better plans for this weekend.
Can you believe that we have one week left of this month?!
I swear, time just goes by like nothing!!! Pretty scary these days.

Happy weekend everyone.

Fill in the Blank



1.   I am     a very emotional girl, a daughter, a friend, a people lover, a TV addict, and a girl so unsure of what the future has in store of her.

2.  I wish   I was able to make up my mind faster, and not worry about something too much or put way too much thought into a matter. This has never helped me in any way, it usually made things worse.

3.  I like    music, horror movies, the colors gray and purple, laughing, TV, books, flip flops, hot chocolate with marshmallows, the environment, the sun, and body lotion!

4.  I can   not believe I haven't bought my Christmas/New Year's tickets yet. I'm such a slacker, and a total chicken when it comes to that.

5.  I hope     people will appreciate the world more, and not just the environment but also everyone around us. Love peace and happiness for all would be such a fantastic way to start 2011!!! :)

6.  I think     life is too short and we should appreciate each and every moment we have in life...the good, the bad, the ugly, the funny...and the scary. It's part of our journey and it's part of who we want us to become because we never ever stop growing up, even when we are adults and think we are mature enough, we never fully grow up so this life is long and worth every minute!

7.  I was    going to skip Fill in the Blank Friday today but thought today's blanks were a cute idea to start the day...just perfect to ponder upon life, the world, and what makes us us. Wow, it's the first time ever I use us next to us. ;) .

If you want to join the fun, just go over to Lauren's blog. :)

Happy Friday everyone.
It's sunny outside, and hopefully stays this way too...it's just so bitter cold...not very nice fall weather. :) Yes, I admit it...I like fall it just has to be warmer...not 80 degrees but at least somewhere in the higher 50s or 60s. :)

Foggy Day

Taken at 8.45 am today. I was walking around this unknown town, and found myself gazing at this cloud of fog...in reality it looked even more stunning!!!

Cute mansion or is it somesort of castle?! Who knows. Just liked it, even in that haze.

Absolutely loved these leaves.






My early trip today was successful. My friend took her exams, probably passed them too (she'll know some time in November - how awful!!!), and I was walking around this town. Honestly though, I was a bit disappointed. Expected more of it and well, although it has beautiful houses, old alleys etc...something was missing. Not sure exactly what was missing but I just assumed it would be more vibrant?! Oh well, over all it was a great day...lots of sun, temperatures stayed in the higher 30s (yes, that cold!!!), and in the afternoon a weird trip in search of some Prosecco...you would have thought it was easy to find a cafe/bar that served some bubbly...not so much. The cafe/bar was difficult to find...so we ended up going to the grocery store and got us some bubbly there and drank that on the train. ;) Yes, we are allowed to drink on the train. And so we celebrated my friend's exam day. Very simple, and so not appropriate...so we're gonna do the nice version of bubbly drinking when she gets her results!!! :)

Happy Thursday everyone!!!
I'm so exhausted, and my feet are sore...so going to be early!!!

October 20, 2010

It's way too early right now...but...


Good morning!
It's freakin' early.
I'll have a busy and weird day ahead of me.
Starting with a train ride very early in the morning. So early Starbuck's not even open yet.
My camera, book, and iPod in tow...money too, and my friend S. next to me.
It's going to be her special day with two major exams ahead of her.
Those tests won't take long but they're illogically scheduled.
In order to enjoy the day in a new city (with hopefully NO fog), I decided to join her and explore a new area.
Eeeeeekkkk....help!
It's going to be in the same country but will make us believe we're somewhere in France.
Yes, we're heading to the French part, and yes, it's going to be oh-so-chic. Or not.
Am I ready?! Who cares.
Is she ready?! I sure hope so, because I want her to pass.

Happy Thursday everyone.
Keep your fingers crossed so S. will ace those very important tests!!

So gonna miss my Starbucks coffee.
And no, the city we're heading to does not have such a coffee house...yup.
Who cares, right?! I sure don't care at all.
It's all about the adventure.

Yawwwwwwnnnnnn.

My Love For Fall...

 ...and all things Halloween related!!!

There's not much I can talk about at this time right now.
I'm utterly exhausted, happy I have time off from all the craziness around me...and I'm just so fall-oriented! ;)
All pictures via tumblr

 
I love this house and I know where it's at! :)
I can just imagine elf's coming out of that building or a ghost walking around it...:)


Have a fantastic day!!!!
And please...can someone make sure it gets warmer soon? It's super annoying!!!
At least the sun appeared today. Woohoo.

Thank you.

Holidays

I finally managed to hit the "book" button. 
Some of you already know that!!!!
I'm going to be back in southern California over the holidays...and I cannot wait. Ok, granted I have mixed feelings mainly due to the fact that I still need to book one flight out to Louisiana. I hope I manage that one, too. Otherwise, I'll be stuck somewhere between Santa Barbara and Orange County. Not too bad either. Wonder why I'm also trying to fly to LA, the state? Me, too. However, my friend invited me along to visit friends and family down there and I have to say it's been 10 (!!!) years that I was down there last so it may be just the right time to visit again. We'll see.
But for right now I'm looking forward to seeing the following again:  
 

Somehow I cannot wait, but at the same time this whole traveling thing is just weird...what do I bring? What do I leave here? What gifts am I going to give? What's the weather going to be like, because frankly I forgot all about it. Do I really fly also to LA, or am I going to stay mainly in CA and enjoy it as much as I can?  Will I survive without a car *as you know I gave up driving!* Will I survive without a computer? I'm not bringing it with me mainly because it's too heavy and my mom's has died so she needs to use mine from time to time. Should I buy an iPad instead and bring it with me? Nope. Yes. Nope. Ridiculous questions on my mind...very ridiculous questions and thoughts. Welcome to my world. 

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend.
I'm going to have a funny week...dentist, eye doctor, and work meetings (yes, work meetings...I need to hand in my keys and sign something! Whoops...I forgot to do that earlier...no biggie though), a trip to the French part of this tiny country (to support my friend on her oral exam day!!), and well, just lots of me-time!!! :)


Ok, I admit it...I'm excited!!! :)

Happy Monday!

Eight!

The awesome Sam over at The Married Couple tagged me in a fun Q&A thing and I'm just so happy to play along. :) It's eight questions I need to answer, and then I have to come up with my own eight questions, tag eight new people and let them answer my questions...got it?! I had to reread this sentence...all I'm seeing is answer, question, answer, question...never mind.

So, here are the questions I need to answer (and I'm happy, too!):

1.If you could live anywhere in the entire world, where would you live?

The perfect question to which I have no answer. How sad is that?!

Then again, I'd love to live in a house overlooking the ocean or having at least a glimpse of that ocean, and a few mountainous hills and of course having the sun shine every day. Very random I know. Years ago I told myself that either Ventura or Santa Barbara would be my spots. Today, I'm not sure if these places still apply to my "dream" but it never hurts to write about it. Maybe one day this dream will come true.
It's not necessarily where I'll be living (maybe a little) but it's mainly how I'm living and how I'm feeling while I do live in that place. Does this make any sense?!
So for today, I'm with Ventura! This town calms me down, and makes me enjoy life outside the big city.

Then again, looking at it from a European perspective, I would also have to say Switzerland. It's beautifully located in the middle of Europe, in easy reach to France, Germany, Italy, Austria...has a great (almost perfect) public transport system, good health care, and well...to me it's home. Ha! There are lots of things I don't agree with over here and there are lots of things I want to change in here, but if I was forced to living someplace in Europe it'll be Switzerland. :)

2. What's the one accessory you can't leave the house without?

My bag.
Let me be clear, I don't have just one bag I have many. Most of the time I use one, and then maybe two or three weeks later I use another one for a while. But, I never fail to leave the house without one. My bag helps me carry many things at once - cellphone, wallet, book, tissue, iPod, camera, gum, beauty necessities, and an umbrella. So, my bag (and most of mine are usually big) is my one accessory I cannot leave the house without...ever!

3. If someone gave you $5,000 what is the first thing you would do with it?

I would put it in my bank account. It's the safest place.  
I may be buying a plane ticket without blinking and thinking twice about it, and then have part of those 5k used, but not everything. The rest would still be in my account feeling well protected. ;)

4.What is the one thing you're afraid of most?

To fail life.
Shocked?! Yes.
You know, ten years ago I finished high school. I saw people at my age today as old, married, having kids, or at least having their life together. Today, I'm as old as I saw myself back then, but I'm not married, have no kids, and my life's messier than I ever imagined. Ok, it could be worse and some of it is my own fault. However, ten years ago I thought being older meant also being wiser and having life figured out. I guess I will never figure out what life wants from me. All I ever wanted was to be the exact opposite of my mom. When I look at myself right this second, I feel I'm heading towards the direction I never wanted to end up in and it scares me. Not that my mom's life was or is bad, but I wanted different things. Better things, for me and for my life. And I'm afraid I'm about to fail this dream and therefore fail life all together.

5.  If you could only read one book for the rest of your life, what would it be?

 I read a ton of books so this is a toughy.
There's really none I would want to say is "worth" reading for the rest of my life. Yup.
This is as honest as it can get.
However, I do have to admit I'd go with the dictionary - that is if I'm truly forced to reading only one book for the rest of my life. I would have to go with a thick one though (thicker than the one I already have!) so it keeps me occupied and sort of amused!
Believe it or not I may change my mind in a week, or a month or so and say Walden And The Civil Disobedience would also be a good choice. Loved the book. Devoured it and reread it twice after the assignment back in my "younger" days. Weird, maybe, but I love the way people wrote back then.

6.What is the one TV show you can't miss?

Oh boy...you got me right there!!!
I'm a TV addict. I admit it. Yes. There you have it.
I love how TV can distract me instantly from all the craziness in life. It's not something that would keep me away from people and normal life, but it's a very good way to keep me entertained when I'm feeling down and don't want to leave the house. And it is my guilty pleasure at times...weird, yes, but I could watch TV 24 hours non-stop!!! :)
So, back to the question...
...I think it's Brothers & Sisters. 
I could name a few more I can't  miss and won't miss like the Vampire Diaries (yes, sue me I'm still 16 at heart!!!), but B&S is the one I don't want to miss out on. Then again, I am not able to watch it for a while and it's quite nerve-wrecking...I wanna know, I wanna watch, I wanna feel...I haven't watched the newest episodes so I'm really itchy to do so soon...but I have to wait. Yup.
*Why the wait? I told myself to finish watching another show and all its seasons before going back to my favorite, and well, I'm not done watching that other show...so I'm gonna stick to my promise!*

7. Edward or Mr. Darcy?

Huh?!
No, I know what the question is about. But I have to go with neither!!!
Sorry!!
Don't be disappointed in me now.

8. What is your signature look?

To be honest I don't know if I have a signature look.
However, I do believe that wearing simple earrings is part of it. 
And I also always wear a necklace that goes with the outfit. 
Oh, and I'm a jeans-kinda-girl. No ripped jeans, no skinny ones (can't pull it off), and no white ones either. Regular all-kinds-of-blue ones. Oh, and when the weather's nice I do love baby dolls, too.
During fall or spring you can also see me with a scarf, because it hardly ever happens that I leave the house without one!
Does that all count as a signature look?! Sorta?!

And when it comes to writing or so, I can say that my signature look there are countless numbers of exclamation and question marks!!! Why oh why??!!!

So, and now it's time to come up with my own eight questions...HELP!!!

1. What song reminds you of a moment in your life (weddings, birthdays, bachelorette/bachelor parties excluded) and those specific views, smells, time, season, etc?! 

2. Do you have a TV/Movie crush?! Who and why?!
(this was part of a fun conversation earlier this month, so I want to know what your answers are!)


3. What do you collect that is super unique
If you're not sure, look around you...what do you buy or have most around you?!

4. When you were little, what did you want to become?

5. Coffee or Tea? Why or well, why not?

6.What is one thing you have to do or have to have each day?

7. What is one food you cannot live without?

8. What is one thing/item/moment you are most proud of? And why?



Wow, that was tough.
It took me a while to come up with questions.
Ok, life happened too so I was a bit distracted and wasn't able to think properly.
Anyways...and here are the lovely ones I'm going to tag


Lacey @ Lacey in the City
Krystal @ Village
Kelly @ Keeping Up with Kelly & Co.

Done

 via

Let's hope this quote is true.
Exhausted, lonely, empty, but with a medium sized coffee cup walking my entire way home...all I could think of was "That's it. I'm done. And now?". It was weird walking out of there not knowing what comes next. It was weird looking at everything and quietly saying good-bye. I will return though because I need to turn in my keys and everything...and I still need to sign something too apparently (my cell rang twice when I got home, so I had to call back and see what the problem was. No biggie, but people make a big fuss about something that's so not important right now!). So let me relax, and heal...and find my path.

Happy Friday everyone.
I'm not in the mood for any Fill In activity nor Friday Funny fun.
Hopefully next week.
All I need now is to relax...officially Saturday and Sunday are my two days off so I'm going to enjoy my two days...with lots of sleep, and a bit more of sleep! And if I don't sleep I'm gonna try and catch up on much needed blog reading. :)

Have a fabulous weekend.

Oh no


It's Wednesday morning and I woke up with some weird headache not really knowing what hit me. Maybe it was the beer from last night (gotta love our German brewery), maybe it's my lack of sleep lately, maybe it's stress at work (we're back at being yelled at!), or maybe it's just stress and this awful fog hovering over us and not going anywhere. :( And yes, this fog is killing me. If this continues I will have problems again. A year after I moved back here I got so incredibly sick I thought my life was about to end. This fog triggered my lung problems (yes, all true - go ask my doctors! Yes plural!) and it was one thing I don't want to experience again. Now, when I go out I just bundle up like crazy and try to breathe as little as possible (which is almost impossible, we know that).

Officially I have only three more work days. That my friends will change quite some bit in my life. Not sure how and when but it just has to. I wanna cry right now because 1) I loved working with people, and speaking three different languages in a minute and juggling all kinds of things and being the boss when no one's around *yes, we were literally put in that position* and 2) my monthly income wasn't the best but it was money that came right into my account and that will stop now.  
However, maybe it's for the better. Scratch that one...I know it is for the better. I'm not 20 anymore where people can try to push me left and right and use me for that matter. I'm not a pushover. I have the right to have my say in things, and I'm strong enough to stand up for what I want or in this case don't want. My life and my health are more important than a regular salary. I started noticing things that won't be mentioned on here that scared me and made me realize that I needed to change things, and that fast. So I know this is going to be a good thing, despite my current shivers and moments of anxiety towards that topic.

I literally hate it when people ask me what I am going to do next.
I have absolutely no idea what I'm going to do and as frightening as this may be I think it's a wonderful thing, too. It's going to be me-time!!! Like, literally me-time. :) 

Ok, enough said, well written...gotta go. I need to rest my mind.
And yes, I may be a bit MIA with comments and such in the new few days/weeks...why? Well, my reader is exploding, sometimes it doesn't even open up, and I'm unfortunately in no mood to comment on your lovely blogs. However, I'm reading them all...if it's fashion, life lessons, scary stories, recipes, problems, or just the regular random stuff you all talk about...I read it all. :) And to 99.9% it always makes me think and smile!

Three more days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WOW!

Let's Cook

What do you do when you're bored?
I usually end up watching endless stuff on TV, or read books, or just sleep all day long. Ha! ;)
So, this weekend right after work I was bored and exhausted. And...I felt like cooking. Not that I worked hard on that topic but I had a sudden idea to find funky-looking kitchen pictures...and the result, well, you can see here: (all pics via google images)









The above picture is one of my favorite kitchen...so clean, pure, and just awwwwwwwwwwww...


And who wouldn't want to work in a kitchen with a view like this one?! Really.

But I would never turn down a kitchen that looks as spacious and as luxurious as the above one. :) Can someone please help me win the lottery and buy a house big enough so I can have a kitchen like this?! 
Pretty please!!!!????
Thank you.

Hope you had a fantastic weekend.
Mine was okay. Foggy most of the time, weather-wise of course.

This week's going to be an intense one.
Enough said.
