Floating aimlessly in space

This was how I felt the last weekend, when it finally dawned at me why I was in such a weird mood those last months. Because guess what, I've reached all of my goals I had so far. What goals?
Well, the biggies:

  • Abitur (german version of the A-Levels) - check
  • Vocational training - check
  • Academic studies (Diplom-Wirtschaftsingenieurin (FH)) - check
  • A well-paid job that I like and excel in - check
  • A nice flat - check
  • A washing machine - check
  • Triathlon - not interested anymore therefore crossed off my goal list

Without realizing it I had reached my goals and I didn't know what to do with myself. Especially after work in the evenings, I'd come home and didn't know what to do with myself. Even watching "Friends" and "Big Bang Theory" had become stale. 

So, I used my weekend to ponder this and I came up with a new "big goal", which incidentally had already been there all along. Funny how things work out. And no, I don't want kids! 

Anyway, I feel centered again and that's exactly what I needed. 

Do you have goals?



Yeah, I just love it!
Now I'm just waiting for warmer weather to go to the park with them. 


Spring is finally here (at the calendar)

Okay, so this is a vineyard in Rheinland-Pfalz last September, but it only takes a few more weeks and nature will rise like the Phoenix from the ashes. Only a few more weeks and it will be warm, sunny and green out there. 

I can hardly wait. And that is for two reasons:
1. I'm fed up with the bad weather, winter clothes and all the grey and brown out there.
2. I want to get back to biking and I want to use my new hula hoop outside in the park, to learn all the cool tricks (My flats ceiling is too low for that.).

Yeah, I just started hooping yesterday. It's fun and very good physical training/play. And I can do it inside and outside, without a partner or much preparation (as compared to swimming, weight lifting, etc.). I like it much more than yoga, running or swimming. It's inexpensive! (Well compared to Triathlon most sports are inexpensive ;-) In case you don't know what I'm talking about watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0he0ShHS20c
Looks like fun, doesn't it?


Back at the drawing board

So I finally got back to my drawing board yesterday and this what I came up with. After months of not drawing my hand is quite inflexible and my lines aren't flowing. definitely need practice  in drawing and clearing my head. I was thinking about way too much stuff. 

Nevertheless I did enjoy the sunny weekend outside and in my wonderful living room / artists studio. 

How was your weekend?


We had joy, we had fun, we had bikes in the sun

I wish you all a wonderful weekend. 

In Karlsruhe the sun will hopefully come out, all that grey weather lately has been depressing. However it is very uplifting to see, me and my blog haven't been forgotten. Cheers to all my friends out there!
