Due to a lack of time this must remain a quick update of my recent doings.
1. I am on a fast. No food (except for three slices of bread a day) and just drink (water, tisane/herb infusion). It’ll last a week and it is the fourth day now. It’s going okay up to now. Although I must admit that I miss eating (who would have guessed?) I had a strange urge yesterday which told me to smell at all spice pots available, imagining delicious dishes to be cooked…but Saturday I will be on proper food again. The reason why I’m doing this? Health problems? No. Weight problems? Not yet. It’s simple: Tanja persuaded me to make it (she does it as well) and I was curious if I would be able to endure.
2. I overreached myself with the Hamlet essay. The topic sounded interesting but it is awfully difficult to find sources. Therefore I had to ask my professor for a extension of the time-frame. But I hope to finish it soon.
3. Tanja and I are trying to solve logistic problems of our move. This is not too easy because: a.) it is the first time we have to move more than just the content of one room b.) neither Tanja nor I own a car c.)Tanja’s and my belongings are distributed over south west and west Germany (Bonn, Aachen & the Saarland) and d.) we have somehow (despite working and university) to find the time to paint the walls of our new flat.
That’s the things I’m agonising over these days.
