We're out of pampers, my friends...

Whoa, I'm writing an entry again (last one was 18 February)!

I found this new cool website the other day (http://www.babbel.com) where one can learn or improve English, French, Italian, Spanish or German. I always wanted to learn Italian so that's what I'm doing at the moment. Additionally I'm going to take a course at the university next year. Well, supposed that I'm matriculated then...

So, what else? Ehm...I actually learned for school the last few days but apparently it was nothing compared to what some schoolmates did so I definitely should kick my own ass. Or let it kick by someone. (Who wants?)

Yeah, that's it. There's absolutely nothing interesting to tell exept my unexplainable addiction to CSI Las Vegas. Okay, that's uninteresting as well.


Arrg, tomorrow's school again ;-(

(no subject)

I'm in Zürich on the 23-26 February because I'm going to some lectures and seminars of the University. So if somebody wants to hang out, please tell me. I don't know yet which courses I'm attending but I will know by tomorrow.

First I wanted to do Couchsurfing but my parents are against it so I guess I'm going to "pendeln" between Engelberg and Zürich or I'll try to kick my brother out of his apartment in Lucerne. But it doesn't matter because I'm so looking forward to it! I really hope that it helps me with my choices for next year, otherwise I really don't know what to do.
Gosh! I have to sign up until 30. April :-s

Homey

NOOOO!! --> I'm ill.

It would have been the first winter without any cold ;-(  Damn...
I'm really not into doing something. Just lying around and do translating for latin (not satisfying at all!).

So now I'm looking for a WG in Zürich and I found a few perfect offers but the "move in dates" are too soon: March or April. There are only 1 or 2 offers that are looking for a newcomer after May. That's therefore weird because numerous people told me that I should begin in January / February with the searching because afterwards all good apartments are given away already. Aha. So I'm late now or what?
I once read that the best flats are dealt underhand, so if you hear anything about a "WG-Auflösung", please tell me!

Okay, I'm going to bed now. I got a W+R test tomorrow and Bucher will make a long "i" (Plautus ;-D) out of me if I don't show up...

Ich weiss ned, wenn ich z'leschte Mal ohni Wüsse und Erwartige en Film gluegt han und de mich so umghaue hed. Also wenn ehr chönned: Gönd de Film go luege, it's worth it!
Naja, falls ihr s'Buech scho kenned, denn vielliecht ned. Ich kenn s'Buech zwar ned, drom cha ich das ned würkli beurteile, aber ich nimme aa, das isch ähnlich wie bi de meiste andere Buech-Verfilmige:

Snow, snow and...snow?

Last week I was about to write an entry and then all of a sudden my computer crashed and I was so pis*** off that I didn't want to write it all again so I left it. Here's another attempt:

Yesterday was Vakanztag and I asked Widler if he wants to accompany me. He agreed. We went up late, circa at 11.30 AM and we only saw Cettuzzi and Sarah (and some "little" ones like Anna Fricker and Saskia...) but apart from them...nobody! It's such a pity that only a few of the students take the possibility of the "Vakanz"-days. Sure, we couldn't see everybody because most of them went down about 2 PM but I know that there was only one person from the 3.HMS+ and that's pretty pathetic...

And today I was learning Philosophy until 8.40 AM because we would have had a test today, but Herr Flückiger told us this morning that he postpones it to Tuesday. Man! Well at least we were allowed to use his lesson to prepare for the next hour (or for whatever else :-D) So I began with my latin homework that I had to hand out in the afternoon. But I didn't finish so I had to do it at noon and yeah...fact is, I had a very stressful day and I should absolutely go to bed soon because tomorrow I have to get up at 5 AM: I'm going skiing with my dad in Laax.
But nevertheless I'm looking forward to it! I was never somewhere else than in Engelberg skiing and according to friends Laax has to be awesome.
My brother is in Davos (he had his Seminararbeitspräsentation there and the University Lucerne paid almost everything :-O) so we can pick him up on the way home.

I don't feel like searching for a fitting title

Hey!

I know it's so long since I wrote an entry: 2 months! And I don't even have an excuse.
But to be honest I can count the mentionable events which happened since then on one hand:


- I got the Wirtschaftwoche behind me.
- I finished the whole Maturaarbeit!
- I sprained my middle finger...twice.

Yep, that's it. Nothing really interesting happened.

Thoughts:

- Today I'm going skiing (for the first time in eight years).
- I noticed today that "Freddie Mercury" and "Mani Matter" look alike (at least a bit).
- I hate Christmas.
- I should read my "Französisch Maturalektüre".
- The man in this video (http://de.youtube.com/watch?v=dIXnzdzEwLw) scares me. Especially when you're listing to what he's singing.

The Cemetery of Forgotten Books

Yesterday I found my own little "Cemetery of Forgotten Books" (Carlos Ruiz Zafón)!

Well, I didn't really "found" it. A friend of mine, Steffi, told me that there is a place nearby where you can bring your books you don't need anymore and in exchange you can take as much books as you wish to.
Why wasn't I aware of this place??
Anyway, yesterday I went there to bring my spare books and I couldn't believe my eyes. The books were not only on the shelves but on the floor, on the tables...just everywhere.
That's how I imagine heaven!
But my dad didn't want to stay too long so I had to leave after fifteen minutes :-( (But I will return within the next few days...)

Thank you, Steffi!

Just another lazy morning...

I can see you!

Okay, no, I can't but I wish I could especially because some friends of mine are traveling around the world right now. Life is so unfair! Or as my friend's grandad would say: Life's a fucking bitch.

But apart from this law of nature I'm feeling great! I got a call from my friend Vanny yesterday and she told me that there was a full moon the night before yesterday. Hah! So now I see why I had trouble falling asleep and had to stay up almost all night. Aw, but last night was one of my best-slept-nights ever (although it was my fourth night sleeping on the couch), so I decided to go hiking today...
Yes, you guessed right, the weather is shitty.

Well, it doesn't matter anymore. I found something else to do: Research on my former pen pal which I haven't seen for nearly nine years. I couldn't remember his name *eye-rolling* so I tried to find his address on the internet (yeah, I'm a stalker!) and I found him! But hum...although he got a really swiss name, there are tons of people with the same name on facebook, so maybe I'm writing him a letter (you know what I mean, this white, squarish thingy called paper) to see if he still remembers me...

Welcome

First of all: Welcome!

I always wanted to begin a diary (or at least an e-diary) but I never got that far. And as I turned 18 I thought that my life would certainly change into an exciting and enviable one but...haha...actually, no, it didn't. But nevertheless I was still pleased with the idea of a website that would keep my thoughts and memories for a longer time that my brain does. So here we go...

Although it's not New Year's Eve I thought of a resolution today that I'm willing to follow from this day forward:
I'm leaving our apartment at least once a day.

Probably it sounds easy to your ears but honestly, it's not, especially when you're on holidays and you're trapped in an one-horse town that appears to be the most distant village in the world. I can't believe I stayed this long here without an attempt to fly. Maybe I should one day... No, honestly, I feel like I've lost 18 years of my life I'm never gonna get back again. Okay, not quite 18 years but the last four years were definitely a waste of time.
But I'm changing this right now. At this very moment.
Okay, it's a fact that resolutions don't last very long but I'm really going to try to carry it out.

BTW: Hell, I can't remember the last time I was awake at this time of day (it's 4:53 a.m., even if the Journal says something else).

Well then, Good Night!
