The Reading List Reading

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 14, 2015 in Personal |

There’s one thing we’ve all experienced, as we sit and read our books in peace and quiet: that person who has to come and talk to us. Not just talk, but also give their own recommendations, the ‘oh, but you must read…’. These are always well-intentioned interruptions, but unwelcome all the same, and hardly likely, […]

Murder And Breakfast

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 9, 2015 in Personal |

I didn’t need all that much convincing, crime on a Sunday is a perfect start to the day, so I went with a few friends to the Murder Breakfast at the Bremer Kriminal Theater with high expectations. The theater is in a small backstreet close to one of the more interesting areas of Bremen – […]

Burning Through The Books

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 2, 2015 in Personal |

Every time I lean back satisfied and close the book I have just finished reading, she seems to be watching me and, with a slight laugh, she shakes her head. It’s not so much her reaction over my satisfaction, when the book is a good one, nor any sign that she finds my reading habits […]

Jazz: A Short Night Out

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 14, 2015 in Personal |

Now that I have a limited amount of extra free time on my hands, I’ve decided to explore even more of my surrounding area, and get to know exactly what is going on here and, perhaps, what makes people tick in northern Germany. As with any major city – and this is certainly anything but […]

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 […]
