  • tuesday tradition - 10/7/08; final edition

    7 Oct 2008, 18:43

    alright, i've been keeping this weekly thing going on pretty steadily (excapt for last week ,-)

    but i've got my schedule for college today, and tuesday seems to be the most packed day of the week

    in other short words - i will drop the strict weekly format, and just go ahead and write something in there, when i like

    e.g. my girlfriend's great; i've just done another stupid things, other random lawlness

    baltimore ravens watch:
    beat the browns at home on sunday 28-10; derek anderson suddenly looks very average, will likely be pulled for brady quinn - ravens still look solid on both sides; the first major test will come next week: steelers on monday night

    review:
    the show on friday was really awesome, just went out there and really played all that mattered - and since the crowd was pretty stupid and didn't appreciate, we were in first row w/o pushing - lame and cool at the same time xD
    today i went to university again...i've got to send in an explanation for the change of my subject and i made sure that the folks from our student representation took a look at it; they gave me a straight a on it, fine (:
    other than that...not much going on really, wtf?!? xD


    preview:
    handing off my explanation during the week; making some calls, and then it's vacation for ina so she'll be over here (: and noone else, cause my family's gone to vacation as well...

    so much for me, good night!

    #2 Alexander Marcus (20): yes, i have surrendered...
    #3 Lisabö (18): new found stuff from spain (correction, basque country ,-)

    baltimore ravens watch:
    game in houston didn't happen; just hope their stadium will be in shape soon

    review:
    well, the rest of the week replacing one of my colleagues was alright - earned some money, no major lapses on my account; just good
    madden nfl 09 arrived at my home, and i gave it a good play; the controls are really awkward if you haven't played the recent versions (like i did), but you get a hold of it quickly and it's still a lot of fun (:
    the weekend with ina was really nice; we were able to learn really well (ina's has a math test today, which turned out alright accodring to her), had some fun playing xbox 360 and kissed, hugged and loved each other a lot
    but the split was extremely painful this week...i always drop her off at bielefeld station since her train home starts there and she doesn't have to worry about missing a transfer with another train - and this drive from gütersloh to bielefeld which usually takes ~25 minutes almost took us an hour; we had to rush to get to the train...i just felt like i was throwing her away only so she can catch the train; i felt really ugly because of what i did and i seriously started to shake - we have gotten over this pretty quickly, but i still feel sorry for that; ich liebe dich <3
    oh yeah, and i talked to some people who helped me out with my student support application; turns out i was really lucky - but too lazy to get into detail


    preview:
    seeing Escapado on friday, again ,-) writing my explanation concerning change of topic/university to get my support application passed; celebrating 9 months of love! <3

    so much for me, good night!

    baltimore ravens watch:
    look, which column is back! beat the bengals 17-10 at home on sunday; not a bad entry for joe flacco, defense was solid, offense had no errors - well done!

    review:
    man...having a caring girlfriend really upgrades your birthdays: cause for the first time i got some genuine heartfelt gifts - a sweet, sweet chocolate cake, an awesomecore birthday card (w/ two cool dogs on it), and a very cute mug...thank you darling! (:
    other than that, not much going on - except one of the teachers working at my private lessons-station is ill for the whole week and i'm filling in...i was told to have 2 students on monday and today; 'twas seven and four :/ at least i'm making 52€ this week (hey, that's a lot fo money to me)

    #1 Underoath (11): just checking their album out...pretty good
    #2 Sigur Rós (8): my hard drive betrayed me, so i listened to last.fm-radio most of the time, which prohibits getting a nice weekly count (i know i totally contradicted myself right here, go ahead...)
    #2 Hammock (8): tie again xD

    review:
    wow, this weekend was just sweet for some craving college football junkie like myself - five days of college football in a row, quick recap
    thursday: nc state got clobbered by south carolina, despite ridiculous play by the gamecocks' qb, their new one is called smelley (no pun intended, lawl)
    friday: rice vs smu; nice offensive affair, nicer smu uniforms (just classic...)
    saturday: bonanza setting in; and the usual upsets you see in week one - va tech got embarassed by east carolina; pitt fell to this year's mac chapion (quote me on that) bowling green which shouldn't happen at home; michigan..............LOLZ!
    sunday: kentucky/louisville; man that cardinals qb sucks
    monday: fresno state outlasted rutgers - nice to see some defense being played in the ncaa
    being able to spend this weekend with ina was even nicer: favorite person, favorite sport - it's a win-win situation! (:
    other tv news - domian's back; everyone's favorite call in/heartpain/lawlness show is back (with someone who's collecting pinball machines, how sweet is that)
    oh and it's my birthday (: got some little presents - mainly money cause that's all i asked for


    preview:
    i'll celebrate my birthday together with ina and a selfmade chocolate cake by her (: and maybe i'll look out for some fiscal planning

    so much for me, good night!

    #3 Hammock (13): tie, yay

    review:
    gnar...car failed that hideous test again :/ really getting sick of the shit
    the ravens lost another preseason game, they're just dismal (on offense, granted; but on defense, wtf?)
    the weekend was fine; it felt good having ina around and it felt even better having a serious conversation to clear some stuff out of the way
    thrice were awesome last week in münster; a really fine set
    i've got some personal and professional hurdles in front of me, which are bothering me...
    not in a typing mood

    college football starts this weekend - oh, and i turn 20 next tuesday; maybe a super-special-birthday-edition coming up...don't know

    #2 Sigur Rós (15): that's what you get for playing a show out of my schedule!!!
    #3 Amiina (11): nice to hear them again - they're so good, seriously...

    review:
    erm, first things first - so i've got to show my car to the local authorities cause the safety badge shit expires this months...'twas FAILLLLLLLL!!!!!!!111
    but the weekend took care of that - it was filled with culinary highights (selfmade tortillas, döner takeaway, KFC!) and magnificent displays of art (deine HAAAAAAAAND wird zur FAAAAAAAAAAUUUUUUUUST!)
    and boy, were the olympics a blast the previous week - 4 gold medals for germany in one day! rowing, equestrianism and fencing...serious business, not like this pussy 9.69 100m dash by usain bolt (ON THE JUICE!!!!, quote me on that)
    and finally, i'd like to add another verbal candy courtesy of ina's smallest brother (q: you know what's bigger than a grape? a: a mountain!)

    then it's lame shit like getting my car fixed (again...), and university administration, meh...

    review:
    alright...rewind - there's no major and minor for me, cause at long last, political science will be offered as a single subject only; i filled out the immatriculation form yesterday so i'm good to go...
    ...if it wasn't for my student support - i'm still not 100% sure if i'll get money and neither was this office twit who i spoke with this morning...let's see how this fares out; i'm pretty optimistic though
    now back to the lighter things...the last week with ina was really fine: we made sushi once again, spent a nice day at the north sea coast (even though we got toasted...no sunscreen, very smart) and i was a first hand witness of a fight between ina and her mother...boy they really go at it! ,-)
    and i also visited the local fair with ina and some friends of her; pertty cool night (:
    and school has started again...and i also feel the start of university closing in - anxiety building up (crap, now i have to sign up to this shitty facebook-remake again); will i make it? with my girl on my side; for sure (:

    review:
    nice career news! bielefeld university has accapted me - both in my major (political science) and in my minor (history); i really feel relieved now...but not entirely (still worry about my student support, but i guess that should be alright
    the weekend at ina's was wonderful as always and it's still going on! i am here until sunday and that suits me just fine
    and i still notice i'm on the right track, cause i am so excited that nfl preseason has started - and just when my birthday comes around the real deal will start again; let's see how my ravens are going to do...
    and in the meantime my father also celebrated his 52nd birthday - alles gute papa! (:

    preview:
    summer vacation almost over - i'll go out for a day trip to the north sea coast with ina tomorrow; should feel cool to get out of this house and spend some time all by ourselves
    and next week it's back to business with taking care of some uni stuff

    #3 Sigur Rós (5): and the effect continues

    review:
    alright, first things first - it was just wonderful to have the whole house only with my girl during the weekend...we just had an awesome time watching stupid television, ina making her first attempts at moving an automobile (and she did well for a first try (: ), cooking some delicious shit (tortillas+guacamole+mousse au chocolat=man, does my stomach feel bad...)
    and together we also bravely fought the heat over here - not only is it pretty warm it's also just so fucking pressing humid all the time; last time i felt such weather was on my vacation to florida some years back; all fans in the house were useless...fortunately it was just the two of us, so we could walk around naked xDDDD
    and since ina's mom celebrates her 40th birthday today, she's been generous with dimensioning my next stay at their house (see below again)

    preview:
    looking after some things on my car, then it's the weekend at ina's (plus the whole next week...WIN!)
