Returning To Normal Days

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 9, 2014 in Personal |

Many students in Germany have already returned to school, some have the pleasure of waiting until Thursday and for those just starting out on their school career, the first school day is Saturday. Each individual State in Germany sets its own term times, which can be weeks apart from one another and causes some consternation […]

Books: Getting Things In Order

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 27, 2014 in Personal |

There are stacks in the bedroom, on the side table in our living room, along one wall in the small hallway, right when you enter the apartment. Behind the couch are more, just growing there as new titles are added every few days. My small library, those few choice books I brought with me to […]

Books: Setting Targets

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 21, 2014 in Personal |

Anyone who hasn’t caught on to my love of books clearly hasn’t managed to grasp the whole story yet, although I’ve never been one to trumpet what I’ve read it can’t be said that I have never mentioned books and reading in my blog. Fortunately I am not the only one who enjoys reading, who […]

Dreaming Of Sunshine

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 6, 2014 in Personal |

You know those days when you just want to drop everything and get out there: into the garden, on to the beach, anywhere where you can just stretch out, relax and enjoy the sun? Photo Credit: 樹/Tatsuru – Creative Commons Well, that’s pretty much what we haven’t got at the moment. One day blazing sunshine, […]

Head Fashions

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 31, 2014 in Personal |

Fashion is not just about the clothes you wear, or the phone that you use. Nor is it really about having the latest of anything, the newest, smartest, most expensive. It is far more about your overall appearance, the way you carry yourself, the level of self-confidence you exhibit. Most people cannot tell whether a […]

Photography: All My Own Work

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 25, 2014 in Personal |

It’s been quite a while since I published any of my own photographs here, although I must admit that I haven’t been out and about with a camera recently and these are all taken with my smart phone. It’s amazing what you can find when just wandering about with a few hours to spare, waiting […]

Blank Pages, Titles, Writing And Grammar

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on July 16, 2014 in Personal |

I read recently on Twitter an entry by a female novelist about how she begins writing, how she overcomes the fear of a blank page. She says that, rather than planning how to start, she simply sits down and writes whatever comes into her mind for the first ten minutes. This removes the fearsome blank […]

The Happy Meal Original

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 15, 2014 in Personal |

I’m surprised that no one else appears to have found this, and yet it is so obvious! Despite all the discussions on the Internet, no one has managed to trace back the origins of the (apparently much hated) new Happy Meals logo on McDonald’s food packaging. Well, I am here to help everyone along and […]

Go Fly A Kite

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 14, 2014 in Personal |

If it wasn’t so cloudy and dull this weekend, I might have been convinced that going out and flying a kite would have been the perfect pastime. There is, about twenty-five kilometers away from here, a small village called Clues (pronounced Clueys) where groups of people meet up regularly to enjoy the weather and let […]

A Rush For The Exit

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on June 9, 2014 in Personal |

Soaring temperatures, sunny weather and a long weekend. Exactly the right time to be out and enjoying some of the leisure activities a town or city has to offer. Here in Germany such activities take certain, almost pre-destined forms throughout the summer: barbecue, the beach, the swimming pool. Here we are lucky enough to have […]
