I’m starting a full time job tomorrow. Ok, so it’s more a 3-months internship but with the prospect of becoming a real job after that (honestly, how can it be so hard to find a good job with a very good diploma?? Gah, stupid economy).
I’m trying not to get my hopes up that it’ll be really great and fun, we’ll see how it goes 😉 It’ll still be great to actually work for a living for a change and maybe earn some real money eventually.
Point is, I might not be able to spend as much time here as I like, so don’t be surprised if things get a bit more quiet. I have a few posts lined up and there will be lots of fun things happening at the weekends at the barn and otherwise, I’ll just have to find the time to blog about them 😉
Ok, now I need to get back to my sewing, I am trying to get as much done as possible before tomorrow.
Wish me luck on my first day!


faithful co-workers

Um, sweetie? I need that file..

But I luuurve this spot!
And a little sneak peek of what I am working on in the evenings (is there a name for my condition? Craft-crazy? I should open a self-help group…I am a psychologist after all):

Guess what? You have to carve away from yourself and not towards your fingers. Because dang those cutting thingies are sharp and when you cut yourself it bleeds…a lot.

gotta enjoy the little things

This came to cinemas just recently here in Germany and I loved it. I am NOT a fan of horror/splatter/gore or anything like that but I do love films that make fun of themselves. Seeing this I laughed until I cried and had a great time.

On a lot more serious note… I just may have been offered a really great career opportunity but it would mean putting my life and everything I’ve built for myself in the last years on hold for two years and moving six hours away from my boyfriend, my cats and the best pony in the world. The alternative would be waiting and hoping against hope to get a job around here.
I have no idea how I’m gonna decide if I should really be offered the job :/

working from home

…definitely has its drawbacks. A major plus though, is not having to venture outside in the bitter cold on dark winter mornings, but being able to wrap yourself up in a quilt with the notebook on your lap, having your own personal legwarmers always at your command 🙂

When I’m done working on my favourite structural equation models (be happy not to know what that is) there’s a little bit of knitting going on and a lot of just snuggling and sleeping and dreaming.
