Schlachte, Bremen: Quiet Before The Rush

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 12, 2015 in Personal |

A friend once told me that he saw more of the city in which he was born and raised, and where he lived for twenty or more years, in the two years after he had left it than at any other time in his life. Everything, he said, was right on his doorstep, and uninteresting. […]

Blogging: Getting The Routine Back

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 5, 2015 in Personal |

I have finally left all the hard college work behind me and can turn my attention to so many other things that I wish to do. One of these is getting back into my Blog, into this small piece of cyberspace I call my own, and doing what I had always promised to do: regular […]

Monday Mornings: Cleaning Up The Weekend

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on August 24, 2015 in Personal |

If the weekend was hot and sunny in Germany, no matter where you are, you will get to see one thing Monday: stacks of beer crates, filled with empty bottles, being brought back to the shops. To be fair, not just beer, some soft drinks are also hidden in there, but the beer crates take […]

It’s Not Just Old Age

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 19, 2015 in Personal |

I am reminded, in a timely post from an online friend here in Germany, of how easy it is to forget, to lose, to grow out of the habit of using a language. In my recent post on various problems in the local area, I constantly referred to a certain road structure as being a […]

What To Call My SO?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 12, 2015 in Personal |

Relationships are so complicated, sometimes it is difficult to know what to say, what to write, especially when you’re trying to preserve a small amount of privacy. So far I have been successful, keeping most if not all of my private life out of the ‘public eye’, as far as the Internet is concerned. No […]

Things Are Looking Up

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 5, 2015 in Personal |

Another brief pause, but only because I have so much to do at the moment: college is not as easy as some believe! I have my first analogue photos back from the developer – I’m not quite so experienced to develop my own yet – and with some very good results. I’ll be posting a […]

What’s In A Meal?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 5, 2015 in Personal |

Yesterday, as I wrote, Hannover, today I was on foot through the streets of Bremen. Now, you might wonder why I should want to walk around Bremen when I am there – in college – almost every single day of the working week. The thing is, yes, I am there but, at the same time, […]

Hardly A Spare Moment

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

It would be easy enough for me to sit down, when I have a spare few hours, and simply write one post after another, backdating them for the days that I have missed out this month. I could come up with all sorts of tales, comments, opinions, general stuff to fill the white spaces, and […]

Despite The Weather, Trying New Things

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

Having neglected my camera for far too long, I decided that today would be a good day to get out into the wilds of northern Germany – but not too far into the wilds! – and see what can be seen. I must admit, though, that my plan was – and is – a little […]

Work Experience: Experiencing Work

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on December 20, 2014 in Personal |

You would imagine, I have no doubt, that it is easy to find a position for someone to learn a job if the company providing the job experience was required to pay no wages. It’s rather like the Intern system we have in the United States: a student comes in, gets all the rubbish jobs […]
