#1 Super-Who-Lokian Moments

I've been thinking back and forth a bit about what to chose for my first entry, and in the end decided to go with Doctor Who because there's just so much about this show that I fell in love with. It made me cry on a regular basis, it made me grin like a mad woman and, considerably often, it made me question why people are so stupid. But that's a story for another day.

Season one, episode 6, Dalek

It's been a while.... again

I don't have much stuff to say atm. My life is rather eventless at this point and I refuse to wallow in my on and off depressions about things not going forward, so I feel I have nothing to say. But somehow, I'd like to. Now, there's a dilemma right there for you. However, luckily the brilliant mummo has a fabulous timing and posted the 100 Things Challenge

{Take the 100 Things challenge!}

So yeah. I will. 
I thought a bit back and forth what my topic will be. And I gloriously came up with 100 Super-Who-Lokian Moments. Yes. I know. Predictable. However, these are the three shows that I've watched most often during the last month. They've impressed me, entertained me, made me laugh and cry. And there's been many moments that made me stop and think. I'd guess I'll end up with 60 percent Dr. Who and 20 percent of each of Supernatural and Sherlock BBC. I'll not promise any big insights. I don't even know what it's going to be myself. All I know is that I've been thinking about putting up posts about the stuff I watch / watched for some days now and this challenges seems to be telling me: DO IT! So... there we go :) 

And dear silviarambles I challenge you do a 100 things London ... just because I'd love to read those :)

sign of life

Caught a cold, so now I'm sitting here head achy, sniffing and coughing and generally a little weakish. But that will pass, too, I guess.
More important and happier news, SNOOKER <3 *thihi* 
Some years ago Lena and me met one of the players during a tournament, really really nice guy, bit confused and such but generally totally great person. He can play some very nice stuff but somehow during the last years he never got his act together. Now, at the beginning of this year he already won a small tournament, his first main tour event. And tonight, he'll be in a final again. He played well so far, so I'm quite curious to see him play later (also nice to have him show up in the regular program on eurosport :) Go Tom!

Didn't that work out well...

Yeah, so much for updating more regularly again.
As soon as life kicks in, most of my good intentions go out the window.
I'm trying to settle into a new routine atm, figuring out working times and tasks for my new job, adjusting to the fact that I'll have to manage lots of my working time myself as I'm allowed to work from home most of the week (which is darling but also a little difficult if you have as much discipline issues as I do...) and the likes.

The job at the cinema is kind of nice, eventhough it's quite tiring. I worked last night until midnight, was asleep by half past two, got up again at eight to get the flat in a semirpesentable state (flatmate already left for the weekend early this morning, I'll leave after work and we don't want to come back into a mess), got myself ready, packed and whatnot.
Will head out to work from half past twelve till a quarter past seven, then (hopefully) catch my train that goes 19.39 from the main station. By 22.20 I'll be at Lenas place. In an ideal world, at least. Train personal is on strike (again... ) so I'm not sure whether everything will have recovered by tonight, but I dearly hope.

Next week is also nearly fully scheduled again. 
I'd so love to simply go on holiday for a week or something.

I'll just try to stay awake as long as my shift lasts. 
I'll be eternally grateful when it's sevenish and I can get ready to leave. Me. Needs. Sleep. And. Rest.

I'm lots better again. I'm still a little lethargic in the evenings and can't get started imidiately in the mornings, but that's normal. What is important is that I'm back on track.
I woke up with a soar throat once again, so I'll be happily consuming huge amounts of tea I guess.
Atleast Bernd will bring me a coffee along when I'm working today. It's nice to have the colleauges that you like around during your shift. He's not working today but has to study for some exams, so he's probably around till the end of my first shift and will drop by when he takes breaks.

On a totally unrelated note, I'm pretty much into movies lately, atleast considering how little I watched before, so I thought, maybe I'll start a movie-list, too, like I've seen it at some of the people from my f-list. 
I might already have forgotten some, but well. That's what I can remember from January.

booklist 2009

Talking about reading, 2008's booklist is a shame. I only managed 61 books. And I'm pretty sure, this year it will even be less. Not to mention that it included way to little university stuff, which for once results from the fact that I barely read the complete book but only seperate chapters, but also proves that I'm simply not doing enough. But this isn't meant to be another "I'm not dedicated enough" rant, I'm pretty sure this year will hold enough of them even if I don't start right now.

Anyway, this is the start of the new list, so come in and enjoy.

epic fail?

Okay. I DID complain today. BUT it wasn't whiny-complaining. I called my mum, and during our conversation she developed her usual: "oh you will do just fine, you always manage" attitude. This gets me mad every time she does it, especially because she's not the only one to reason like that. I didn't complain about my workload, I just told her that some days I felt overwhelmed and that next term would be tough, but that I had conciously chosen things like this. I know I'm responsible for my choices and I knew what I was getting myself into before. That's not the point. The point is, that I will have to struggle to manage, and that I fear I might fail or atleast not do as well as I would like. And I wanted her to acknowledge this fear. Of course it's comforting when people believe in you, but it's not helpful when they do it in a way that gives you the impression that they don't take your fears serious.
I'm not wonderwoman, and I want her to acknowledge when I do well and I want her to to accept and understand that I do hold my fears and insecurities. I don't think this asks for to much and today I explicitely told her that. After she responded the fifth time with, "well yes, BUT..." I got a bit louder and tolder her "No! Not BUT. I'm insecure and I'm dreading the next term ab bit, and I don't need people to tell me I'll just manage great. I want them to accept that it in fact IS alot of work and that I've got the right to fear failure too. That's all I'm asking for." She accepted this then, finally.

Is it stupid to think like that? I don't know. But I can't help feeling like this.

Generally, the conversation went fine, though. As usual, she didn't ask me anything, she didn't show particular interest in my life or studies, but maybe one day I get used to the fact that if I want her to know things, I'll have to tell her about them without being asked. I wont change her. Atm, I guess I'm not fully ready to accept her the way she is because to many things she does I just can't understand. But I guess time will help. Maybe I first have to gain more distance from her before I can finally fully accept the way she is and make my peace with her.
